GOP Senator Opposes Obamacare Since His Friend Must Insure More Employees

Speaking to CBS host Bob Schieffer today, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) first spoke about the fact that the government shutdown was a disaster for his party. Turing to Obamacare, Graham referred to a friend who owns 52 Wendy's restaurants and provides health insurance to just 40 percent of his employees. Now–horror of horrors–under Obamacare, Graham's friend will have to insure more employees. A healthy workforce, by Graham's reckoning, is bad for the economy. Watch:

GRAHAM: Friend of mine owns 52 Wendy’s, he’s put pen to paper, he has 40 percent of his workforce insured today. Under Obamacare, if 20 percent choose insurance, his insurance costs will double. That story is repeating itself throughout the economy. Obamacare is a debacle that will go into 2014.
