...well #$%$. Just another of the great liar's lies.
From the Wash Times...
President Obama's health care law will push 7 million people out of their job-based insurance coverage — nearly twice the previous estimate, according to the latest estimates from the Congressional Budget Office released Tuesday.
CBO said that this year's tax cuts have changed the incentives for businesses and made it less attractive to pay for insurance, meaning fewer will decide to do so. Instead, they'll choose to pay a penalty to the government, totaling $13 billion in higher fees over the next decade.
Yes, marginal tax rates will be too low, and affordable care will be more affordable. Whutta revoltin' development, as Chester Riley used to say:
Fewer People with Employment-Based Coverage
In 2022, by CBO and JCT’s estimate, 7 million fewer
people will have employment-based health insurance as a
result of the Affordable Care Act; in August, that figure
was estimated to be about 4 million people. The
revision is the net effect of several considerations, with
the largest factor being the reduction in marginal tax
rates, which reduces the tax benefits associated with
health insurance provided by employers. The increased
movement out of employment-based coverage also
reflects revisions to CBO’s projections of income over
time and higher projections of employment-based coverage
in the absence of the Affordable Care Act.
