Studies show that Obamacare will probably cause at least 1/3 of small businesses to stop providing health care, forcing their workers to turn to the government option. In the case this happens, Obamacare suddenly will cost $1 Trillion more than predicted, because Pres Obama’s belief is only 7% would drop coverage. But why would a company keep paying for health care, if they do not have to? That the coverage they end up getting may not be as good as what they now have is another issue entirely.
As it is, even Howard Dean, a doctor and former DNC chair, admits that this is what probably will happen. He thinks it is a good thing. Of course, no one is asking us how we’ll pay for the additional $1 Trillion.
