One payoff to pass Obamacare not paying off
*** begin quote ***
We know about the backroom deals made to get Congressmen to vote for ObamaCare but there were also favors cut out for unions, drug makers, and even small business to get them to support the program.
Guess what? The “credit” offered to small business to help them pay for the increased health care costs-due to ObamaCare mandates- turns out to be not much help at all.
*** end quote ***
Make a deal with the devil and don’t be surprised when you get cheated.
Not much to say, but dealing with the Gooferment for “special favors” isn’t what business is supposed to be all about.
Remember this whole benefits mess was created by FDR’s wage and price control in WW2. And, generations later we are still screwed by it.
Time to take some bitter medicine.
Phase out “benefits”.
Businesses should pay their workers their full wage. Allow people to buy “health insurance” like car insurance. THen it would be “portable”.
Perhaps then credit unions to offer group insurance to its members?
