How ObamaCare increases income inequality

Because ObamaCare forces people to get comprehensive, and therefore expensive, health coverage, it actually makes the income inequality problem worse. Lower- and middle-income workers will see a much larger percentage of their income — which includes the employer’s contribution since that is part of total compensation — going to health insurance than higher-income workers.

Unless, of course, employers decide to drop their coverage and dump their employees into the heath insurance exchanges, as many surveyed employers have hinted.

And while the president thinks that comprehensive coverage helps workers, it actually hurts them because it represents a bigger portion of their income that someone else controls, and it means a loss of income as a greater percentage goes to health coverage.
