George Will’s Obamacare concern

George Will

He is a conservative even liberals can love. A baseball guy that often moves audiences with “apple pie” emotions. In Tulsa, the daily newspaper claims they are not leftists because they include his columns – well, at least some of the non-offensive ones… occasionally.

Will may have caused considerable editorial consternation Sunday as he questioned how quickly and effectively the Obama administration can fix the problem-plagued website. Will suggested a potential purgatory for public officials in 2014 which is not welcome news at Georgetown parties.

“100 million people get their insurance from Medicare and Medicaid, 171 million get it from their employers,” Will said. “Watch the employers. Because if they start dumping people into Medicare and into Medicaid, and the doctors then say, ‘The burdens are too high, and the reimbursement is too low, we’re not seeing Medicaid patients,’ then all hell is going to break loose.”

More conservative commentators have been saying the same for years. Here is the clip from Fox News.
