By it’s very name (versus its real-life consequences), ObamaCare is Orwellian at best.
As expected, the evidence just keep keeps piling up as stated in this Businessweek article:
It’s easy to see why the Obama administration buried this report (PDF) on a late Friday afternoon news dump at the end of a holiday week. The headlines it prompted (after John Boehner alerted reporters on Monday) look terrible.
Indeed, 11 million workers in small businesses are likely to pay more for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act, according to the report from Medicare’s chief actuary. An estimated 6 million workers will pay less, as the law’s market reforms restrict what insurers can charge to cover employees who are sick or older or are women facing higher costs related to pregnancy and childbirth.
So, the ratio of those paying more for health insurance outnumbers those who may pay less is nearly two to one?
