Wheels coming off Obamacare

If the courts uphold the clear language of the law, then some 8 million people in the affected states won’t be eligible for subsidies to cover that $20,000 (or more) insurance bill. That’s another 8 million without coverage.

All in all, at least 40 million people could be uninsured in 2016, only 9 million fewer than before the law was passed.

Expect the momentum for repealing this law to grow as its flaws, perverse incentives and faulty predictions come to light.

    Obamacare might be likened to a large group of Ruffians on a riverbank who, on witnessing a bridge being built, decide to take over the construction of that bridge.
