Hate Obamacare? Hate The Alternative
Hate Obamacare? Hate the alternative. "Obamacare does this too, because--like the Coburn bill--it reduces the value of the existing tax break, albeit in a more indirect way. And the conservative method of reducing the tax break is actually preferable because it's more direct. But Obamacare's reduction is relatively modest. The Coburn bill might envision a larger reduction...[T]he disruptions to employer insurance would be precisely the sort of changes that Republicans say they hate about Obamacare." Jonathan Cohn in The New Republic.
