One of Obamacare’s most vocal supporters claimed the health care law is helping colleges and universities offer coverage to their employees. Except it’s really not. Representative George Miller (D-CA) said Thursday, “The ACA is another opportunity for education institutions—as employers—to partner with states and the federal government to ensure that their employees have health coverage.” But according to a list compiled by Investor’s Business Daily, businesses, local governments, and education institutions across America are making changes because of Obamacare—including shortening employee work hours and reducing staff levels. In many cases, organizations are making drastic changes to comply with the health law’s delayed employer mandate.
