File you don’t have to be stupid to be a liberal, but it helps, a lot. Politicio discusses “Why liberals are abandoning the Obamacare employer mandate :”
But scrapping it isn’t a snap for Democrats. The employer coverage rules were part of the ACA’s core philosophy that individuals, employers and the government should all contribute to paying health care costs. Some Democratic constituencies, including labor unions and Obamacare proponents like Families USA, still see it that way.
Obamatards, a/k/a liberals, have an unlimited faith in magic money. They seem to think that somehow employers can conjures up money without regard to the contributions, or utter lack thereof, of their employees. That is to say, that Obamatards fail to see any connection between the cost of labor and the amount of labor purchased. If you raise costs consumption will go down.
As the government produces nothing, anything the government intends to simply give away but first be taken from the productive class. Or as Uncle Eric might say, “There ain’t no such thing as a free lunch.” Not even if you are a liberal.
