Letters: Implementing Obamacare

May 04, 2013

Re "Health law's nasty side effect," May 2

To avoid providing health insurance to all employees who work more than 30 hours a week, some companies are cutting hours to dodge an Obamacare bullet. Let this serve as a classic example of how unworkable the Affordable Care Act is and why legislators should thoroughly read bills before voting them into law.

Even prominent Democratic senators — including Jay Rockefeller (W.Va.) and Max Baucus (Mont.), who were instrumental in drafting Obamacare — now admit that there will be huge problems implementing the law.

It should be repealed or at least dramatically reworked and downsized.
