Editorial Mulls Effect of ACA on California Farmers
An Orange County Register editorial argues that the Affordable Care Act will "burden" California farmers by requiring them to offer health insurance for their workers. According to the editorial, farmer advocates say the business owners likely will "drop health insurance" and instead pay a cheaper penalty for not offering coverage. However, the editorial argues, thisÂ result "would create higher costs for taxpayers and poorer outcomes for ill or injured workers."
