Unintended Consequences

Obamacare has new requirements on heathcare insurance. McDonald’s claims the burden may be to much, and that they may simply drop the insurance.

McDonald’s Corp. has warned federal regulators that it could drop its health insurance plan for nearly 30,000 hourly restaurant workers unless regulators waive a new requirement of the U.S. health overhaul.

The move is one of the clearest indications that new rules may disrupt workers’ health plans as the law ripples through the real world.

Trade groups representing restaurants and retailers say low-wage employers might halt their coverage if the government doesn’t loosen a requirement for “mini-med” plans, which offer limited benefits to some 1.4 million America

Rushed legislation will always result in unintended consequences.  Not letting a bill go before  public review , and Congressmen not reading the Bill but voting for it anyway is the surest way of legislating into law undesirable effects.
