IBD: Could ObamaCare Make The Uninsured Problem Worse?

John Merline of Investors Business Daily asks, "Could ObamaCare Make The Uninsured Problem Worse?" (7/25/2012)

In particular, the combination of a relatively weak individual mandate/tax, other insurance regulations (guaranteed issue, community rating), and economic incentives that will cause many employers to drop workplace coverage could drive up the number of uninsured Americans.

 In other words, further government regulations to "solve" a problem will actually make things worse.

Totally unsurprising. (Via Instapundit.)
