On Wednesday, conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh warned listeners that problems caused by Obamacare are only going to get worse. He argued that when the other Obamacare “shoe” drops in 2014 — when the law starts impacting employer-provided health care plans — “all hell is gonna break lose.”
“[Right now], the only thing affected is individual policies. Nevertheless, even though that limited number of people is affected, that limited number of people is causing all of this havoc,” he said. “The other shoe to drop in 2014 is when this same thing starts happening to people who get their health care at work. We’re not talking about employer-provided coverage here yet. That shoe doesn’t drop until next year. Right now, it’s just the individual insurance market that’s being affected by the exchanges.”
Limbaugh explained that the vast major it of Americans get their insurance through their employer, claiming the impact of the employer mandate is going to be far greater than what the country is seeing now.
“Wait until everybody who’s insured by their boss begins to lose their plan! That happens in January of next year. Then all hell is gonna break loose because then we’re talking about the vast majority of the people in this country,” Limbaugh added. “Admittedly, folks, the individual insurance market is not the major part of it.”
