Obamacare Closes Private Health Care Market in DC

President Obama infamously said that if we like our health care plan, we can keep it under Obamacare. As it turns out, the president likely never read the bill that was rammed into law to understand the minor details that fundamentally transform America's health care system. In Obama's mind, any bill that turns the control of health care over to the government is a good one. In Washington, D.C., small business owners are finding out the hard way, as the District has imposed a radical approach that eliminates private options.
The District of Columbia had three options to consider in order to comply with Obamacare:
- DC must establish their own health insurance exchange,
- DC could combine with another regional exchange, or
- Have the federal government set up an exchange for them.
The District opted for option #3, per the Washington Post. Since liberalism generates the exact opposite of its stated intent, small business owners with fewer than 50 employees will be forced to purchase health insurance from the government run exchange, as private options will be eliminated. But remember, we were told that if we like our health care plan, we can keep it! The intent with Obamacare was to push towards a single payer, government run health care system by forcing private insurance out of the market.
Small businesses are getting crippled by Obamacare. The alleged health care reform law is causing thousands of small businesses to sit on cash they'd normally invest because they're uncertain how the law is going to impact their business. We're talking hundreds of billions of dollars that aren't being invested in hiring new employees simply because small business owners are afraid of the true implications Obamacare and whether or not Obama will get a second term because of the stifling regulations he'll impose.
This empty suit of a president needs to be defeated.
