President Obama’s scaremongering claims employers will require employees to pay more for their insurance or quit offering insurance benefits altogether if his health care bill is not passed.
The President completely ignores the other just-as-likely scenario — the part where employers are going to have to drop jobs to pay for Washington mandated health care coverage, increased taxes and potential fines if his health care bill passes.
When the federal government puts mandated costs on Kentucky businesses — which must make a profit or close their doors and put everyone out of a job — other cost-cutting actions are required to stay viable.
Only government entities have the luxury of unlimited funds and no threat of competition.
Heard any push back from Frankfort to Washington to try to protect Kentucky businesses? Didn’t think so.
