MONROVIA, CA – Everyone seems to love Trader Joe’s. Since we don’t have one on Delmarva, my wife fills the car up every two weeks when she’s down in Virginia visiting her parents. The grocery chain appears to be one of America’s many success stories … at least until ObamaCare reared its ugly head. Last week the chain informed employees that Trader Joe’s would no longer be offering health care benefits to its part time employees.
What was supposed to be the answer to a supposed health care crisis, ObamaCare seems to be the opposite. According to the Congressional Budget Office, over 7 million workers will lose their employer-based health coverage as a result of the law. These individuals (and their covered family members) will be forced into government-run exchanges.
