House Bill passes test; Senate Bill Does Not

Adding to the growing body of research exposing the flaws in the Senate health bill, the Center for Economic Policy Research released a report this morning hammering the effectiveness of the Free-Rider provision.

Final health care reform legislation should include employer responsibility provisions that are consistent with the principle of shared responsibility and do not create perverse incentives and free rider problems. The House bill passes this test; the Senate bill does not.

The report supports the findings of the UFCW report released last week that found the Free Rider provision would incentivize companies shifting from full to part-time workers and would not hold employers accountable for their part in ensuring workers have access to quality coverage.
