Union ‘fix’ to Obamacare would cost taxpayers $190 billion

Union ‘fix’ to Obamacare would cost taxpayers $190 billion

A “fix” to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act proposed by unions would force taxpayers to pay nearly $190 billion to extend subsidies to union health plans, according to an analysis by a right-of-center policy institute.

“Should the administration move to accommodate their union supporters, we estimate it would cost nearly $190 billion over 10 years,” wrote American Action Forum health-care analysts Emily Egan and Conor Ryan.
