Editorial Says Obama’s Health Reform Claim Is ‘Duplicitous’
A U-T San Diego editorial argues that a claim by President Obama that individuals will be able to keep seeing their doctor if they wish under the Affordable Care Act "has been exposed as duplicitous." It notes, "As of February, [the Congressional Budget Office] estimated that a minimum of 7 million people will lose their work-provided health coverage because it is far cheaper for employers to pay a fine for not offering coverage than it is for them to provide coverage."
