Great summary of one of the unintended consequences of Obamacare. I am constantly amazed at the assumptions of all the big-government advocates that think that everyone's behaviour will remain the same no matter how many taxes and government regulations are heaped on them.

"Raise taxes by X% and we will get more revenues because everyone will still produce or invest the same amount" is a dilusion.

The reality...

The ACA gives employers an excuse to make part-time workers.

There...all better.

Employers did not need Obama Care to find a reason not to provide health insurance. That has been a fact ad infinitum. We need to solve the problem by comming up with a system that does not rely on employment.
