Another reason the RepubliCANTS are trying so hard to stop ObamaCare.Posted: July 20, 2013
Once the insurance exchanges start up, lots of people (especially seniors) are going to see that they can buy health insurance policies for less than their employers provide.
Sixty-year-olds, in particular, are going to figure out they can get cheaper insurance to tide them over until they qualify for Medicare. So they won’t have to stay at their jobs just for their health coverage, and they can retire earlier.
This will open up lots of new jobs.
This will provide a huge boost to employment and, subsequently, the economy.
Conservatives are right to be hysterical about this: it’s an attack on everything they believe — and it’s going to make Americans’ lives better. What could be worse? – Paul Krugman
And the House RepubliCANTS cannot possibly allow this to happen on Obama’s watch. So they’ve tried 38 times now to repeal it. Rather than pass the jobs bill that would give us the result quicker that ObamaCare will provide eventually.
