Even some Democrats are starting to give up on one of ♡bamaCare!!!’s key provisions, the employer mandate:
West Virginia Senate candidate Natalie Tennant is a rare prominent Democrat to address repeal.
“Washington should be having a serious conversation about getting rid of the so-called employer mandate. The facts show it doesn’t do much good for the workers who need it most, or help many people get insurance,” Tennant said. “The longer Washington puts off that conversation by delaying the rule instead of getting rid of it, the longer small-business owners are stuck in limbo, waiting to plan for the future or holding off on hiring that extra worker.”
The story opens with a reminder from ♡bamaCare!!! architect Jon Gruber, that “The employer mandate doesn’t have a huge impact on insurance coverage. But it does raise a lot of money.”
Remember yesterday report on how ♡bamaCare!!! was going to balloon our already-massive deficits? It looks positively panglossian with just a single day of hindsight.
