Oh, I agree. The easiest course would have been to do nothing. The day is soon coming when employers will no longer be able to afford providing insurance to their employees. Certainly not if the expect to compete globally. Once employer provided health insurance became extinct, people would have entered the insurance marketplace on their own.
If they drop that, insurance will become more affordable for all. And, it will be cheaper for companies to create jobs here in Amerika. That is one of the main complaints from companies, the cost of healthcare.
