“Watch out what you pray for.” Is appropriate with ObamaCare.
So, is the old Hogan’s Heroes theme of “don’t replace Klink, his replacement may be worse than he is.”
“This vision [of universal health care] has come back to haunt us.”
“The unintended consequences of the ACA are severe.”
“The law creates an incentive for employers to keep employees’ work hours below 30 hours a week . . . many of them are doing so openly . . . fewer hours means less pay while also losing our current health benefits.”
“The law as it stands will hurt millions of Americans including the members of our respective unions.”
Not, thousands, but millions. And I will go a step farther in describing the problem.
Socialism is making America like the rest of the world. We longer reward hard work, we penalize everyone, instead. And like it is in Europe, you will have tens of millions of Americans marginally employed, because all they can find are part-time jobs. Or, unpaid internships.
Government has not helped the small businessman employ people, you give the small employer incentives not to hire people. The small company (they hire 80% of our workers) does not have staff on hand to deal with these insane Socialist laws. So, rather than try to deal with a law that does not encourage business, the do not do anything that might cross that legal line. That means fewer workers.
And Socialist Government gives the large companies opportunity to hire part-time workers instead of full-time. The management costs go up, but the effective tax rate goes down, because you are a big multi-national and have staff to handle the legal issues.
Insurance is a tax. If it was not a tax, than we would not compare our tax rates with European tax rates, and their Socialist one payer system.
Why is this so messed up?
Because this Socialist Law was written by activists. Unions, Multi-Nationals, and Health Care Lobbyists wrote the law.
Do you really think they care about the Citizen? Do you think they care about the employee? Or, the Taxpayer?
I met a medical lobbyist.
She laughed at me when I discussed bringing workers to America. “We wrote the law, so what you are trying to do will not work.” She was going back to DC after an expense paid vacation. Yes, she went over for a two-day conference, and stayed for two weeks.
ObamaCare is destructive.
So, is ‘medicine.’ Just google ‘Iatrogenesis’ some time.
