Obamacare and the Uncertainty Factor

From the Hill:
The story, written by Pete Kasperowicz, goes on to note that there are so many questions, in the minds of potential employers, that they are seeking help from consultants and compliance specialists who understand the mysteries of Obamacare and can, therefore, help them cope.
Obamacare baffles even its ardent supporters as was the case with Donna Brazile who famously tweeted her confusion a week or so ago.
The bill is awesomely complex and the claims made for it by its authors and supporters are impossibly optimistic many of whom may not really expect it to perform as sold. They see it, rather, as a staging area along the way to the final objective, which is single payer health care. The payer, of course, being the government. At some point, the difficulties of understanding and implementing Obamacare will result in a general throwing up of hands in surrender to the inevitable. And we will have single payer – awful but understandable.
