I realize that people can only process so many issues at a time, and Zerocare has lots of problems. But the problem about which no one is talking (but they will) is the impact on employers. The increased expense of unwanted, unnecessary health care coverage mandated by Zerocare will result in not only the jobs that haven't been created up to now, but will result in higher layoffs, lower raises and other employee benefits that will need to be cut.

Those who have no understanding of business (PA morons, etc.) will no doubt buy the Admediastration lies about how businesses hate their employees. But it's obvious that businesses already fighting hard for revenue will not be able to unilaterally raise prices to cover these mandated increases. True, some prices will increase, but employers are more likely to cover the bulk of this expense by cutting workers, cutting benefits, or a combination.

There are fewer and fewer people working, and those that are working are losing ground. Meanwhile, those getting free stuff will get more free stuff. The forecast is for more of the same - Zero hates the middle class and doesn't mind picking their pockets to buy votes from the 'free stuff' crowd. Yellen will keep ZIRP in place, stocks will continue to go up, and liberal idiots will keep yapping about 'the 1%'.

When the MSM 'discovers' some of this next year, and accidentally reports it, remember that you read it here first.
