D: There are certainly a lot of people who agree with you that nothing positive will come from Obamacare.

But this is based on politics, not a non-partisan view of the facts.

A fair view is there are a lot good things about Obamacare. Examples include more Americans having access to health insurance, kids 27 & under being able stay on parents plan, no existing condition limitations, etc.

More specific to this blog, we also think it will improve health insurance options for independent workers and owners of small and micro businesses.

Having said that, Obamacare is going to be expensive for the country and because many provisions are not well thought out, difficult to implement.

So at least in my opinion, the jury's still out on whether or not Obamacare's net overall impact on the country will be positive or negative.

Regardless, it's the law of the land and will continue to be so for at least 4 more years (and its highly likely for much longer).


Will Obamacare Lead to Lots More Small Businesses?:

NO.... Nothing positive will come from it.
