“Under the reforms we seek,” said President Barack Obama in August 2009, “if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan.”
Guess that means that those working for certain private-sector employers don’t much like their health care. According to the editors of the Washington Examiner:
Two weeks ago, the consulting firm McKinsey & Co. released a widely reported survey that said almost a third of private-sector employers reported they will drop their employee health insurance coverage when Obamacare’s government-managed insurance exchanges come online in 2014.
And take a gander at this tidbit:
Among those most informed about how Obamacare would affect their business, 58 percent said they would either definitely or probably drop employee care. By contrast, only 16 percent of the best informed said they were planning on keeping their plans.
Things do tend to go wrong when the government meddles in your industry.
