Small Business Owner Lays Into Oregon Senator Merkley

Published on Jan 3, 2014

This small business owner, who has 12 employees, has had to cancel insurance their plans, thanks to a massive increase in cost. Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley brushes him off, tries to pass Obamacare off as being amazing, and basically belittles the guy and tells him to sign his employees up for Cover Oregon, which still doesn’t function. Notice the part where he says that some small businesses have reported only small increases in insurance costs, where others have reported large increases. Apparently none of them have cheaper insurance now!

I think when he suspended the application of the employer mandate he did something that necessitates a prompt response on the part of Conservatives in Congress…. He lacks the power to just amend Obamacare. He can’t just amend it and what he’s doing isn’t authorized by the text of the statute. So he’s breaking the law that he pushed through as his signature legislative accomplishment.”
