George Will clearly doubts how quickly and effectively the Obama administration will fix the problem-plagued HealthCare.com website, noting during his appearance on Fox News Sunday the government’s own report that site’s functionality is still months away.
But Will added another concern — one even more ominous, with potentially much larger implications — he sees on the 2014 horizon.
“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.”
