Dismantling ObamaCare

Kenneth Blackwell and Ken Klukowski have a superb column out today on how states can help block ObamaCare as a whole by refusing to set up state insurance “exchanges.”

Key passage:

Third, if employers with 50+ employees do not provide federally-approved healthcare, ObamaCare imposes a $2,000 penalty per employee, per year. (Minimum penalty $100,000.) However, that penalty is triggered when those employees receive tax subsidies from a state-based exchange.

Since HHS-run exchanges have no subsidies, for states refuseing to create exchanges, no employer in that state will be subject to that penalty.
