That’s what the health care mandate on employers will do. I haven’t seen anyone deny this. Supporters of ObamaKare just ignore it – “it will class=”hiddenSpellError” pre=”will “>cure itself by producing huge cost savings magically” or, “well it’s already costing us that” (false). We’re heading for Europe, with its high unemployment rates, and we’re loving it. Yes, you’ll be out of a job, but you can get free medical care at the clinic – isn’t that swell?
UPDATE: And here’s another swell idea – mandatory paid sick leave, courtesy of the federal government, paid for by your employer.
“This will not only protect employees, but it will save employers money by ensuring that sick employees don’t spread infection to co-workers and customers, and will relieve the financial burden on our health system swamped by those suffering from H1N1.”
Ever notice that it’s always senators who’ve never worked for a living who keep coming up with great ideas that will save employers money? The employers are just too stupid to see what the real men of genius in Washington can see.
