Tonawanda News — Obamacare isn’t perfect — but what government program is?
Some genuine cooperation between the parties to improve it could set an example for the private sector and maybe then companies wouldn’t be so skittish about hiring for fear of it costing too much money to contribute toward a new worker’s health insurance.
The lack of cooperation in Congress is filtering down through the ranks to the private sector and — eventually — to individual workers who bear the brunt of frustrating employer policies meant to mitigate the dysfunction in Washington.
I fully understand the frustration people feel when government makes life more difficult. Unfortunately from the policy side, how difficult the problem is shouldn’t result in a refusal to offer solutions.
And when only one side is offering any solutions at all it makes things that much tougher.
