Modern Healthcare - - COMMENT -

Re­gard­ing the April 21 ed­i­to­rial (“The ACA’s midterm re­port card,” p. 24)— not so fast on giv­ing Oba­macare a pass- ing “C+” grade. As Demo­cratic U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch of Mas­sachusetts has cor­rectly pointed out, much of the law’s pain has been de­layed. When em­ployer plans be­gin to be taxed or dis­ap­pear, and with

em­ploy­ers un­load­ing work­ers onto re­stric­tive, nar­row provider net­works, the elec­torate will give in­cum­bents an­other whip­ping. Pres­i­dent Barack Obama has en­sured that only the su­gar is dis­pensed on his watch. The medicine will come later.
