Obamacare Will Not Make Poor Americans Less Likely to Work

Universal healthcare is not going to turn us into a nation of takers. People will still work. Some people might work less, but not that much less. Other people might work the same, but in more productive jobs. Maybe theyll switch jobs more now that they dont have to worry about losing their insurance. Or maybe theyll be more likely to start a company. In any case, this study tells us that expanding Medicaid, like Obamacare will, wont turn our safety net into a hammock.
