Republicans Want Small Businesses to Pay More For Health Care
I was reading the GOP alternative “budget blueprint” and noticed something very unusual. In the section about health care reform, they claimed that having a government-run health insurance “option” would result in millions of workers having their current employer provided coverage switched to the government insurance plan, “because their employers would save billions of dollars by ending their current coverage and dumping their employees into the government-run plan.”
Let me understand this: the Republican party is officially against creating a public health insurance option, because it would help small businesses save billions of dollars on health care. I'm simply amazed that the Republican party would put in writing that they are against something that they acknowledge would save small businesses billions.
