President Obama's hometown newspaper, the Chicago Tribune, has been among his harshest critics on Obamacare. In today's editorial they point out that the law's collateral damage isnot confined to the individual policy market. As is the case with Obamacare's other failings, the fact that employers may dump coverage and force employees to Obamacare's exchanges is hardly news, or at least shouldn't be.
But millions of employees breathing a sigh of relief that they get their coverage from their employers will be in for a rude awakening. It's important to remember that all of this was calculated and none of it was unexpected to the Affordable Care Act's architechts.
