    If the entire law is overturned: Small businesses will be back where they started in 2009. There will be no federally-required exchanges offering affordable coverage, although some states may continue to develop such exchanges. The restrictions on premiums and medical loss ratios have already helped small employers to hold down increases in coverage costs, but without those brakes, such costs may rapidly increase.

    Small businesses would also lose the tax credits under the ACA. A few large carriers have announced they will voluntarily keep some of the more popular (but less costly) reforms, including dependent coverage until age 26, full coverage of preventive services and elimination of lifetime caps. However, without community rating and guaranteed issue, premiums will continue to soar.

    And don’t forget that private insurance would continue to subsidize the cost of treating the uninsured that cannot be legally turned away from emergency rooms.

    In the last thirty years the rich have done fantastically well mostly via the legislative route. You know buying favorable regulations, conditions and even a bit of outright theft.


    The middle class is smaller and those that are left are lower down the economic ladder with the opportunities for improvement less.

    The sad part is the business is now in the midst of record profits. Had they returned some of this to their workers in the form of higher wages the economy would be so much stronger, the rich would still be rich just not quite as rich.


    "Productivity has surged, but income and wages have stagnated for most Americans. If the median household income had kept pace with the economy since 1970, it would now be nearly $92,000, not $50,000."
