A study conducted by health care consulting firm Deloitte and the University of Chicago found that 59 percent of employers think the ObamaCare health reform law is a “step in the wrong direction.”
The survey, published on Tuesday, asked 560 businesses of varying sizes their opinions and planned reactions to the impending implementation of the health reform law, the Affordable Care Act.
When asked if they thought ObamaCare was a “step in the wrong direction,” 59 percent of businesses said yes; only 30 percent said they believed the law was “a good start.”
The survey also found that businesses felt that they were largely unprepared for the law’s implementation, which is scheduled to roll out in complete form in the coming years. Some aspects of the law, and regulations concerning it, already have been implemented.
