    Uncertainty and Health Insurance Reform
    By ANDREW ROSENTHAL

    Mitt Romney said on the campaign trail in Florida yesterday that President Obama’s health care reform law is hurting small businesses and that Mr. Obama is oblivious to the problem. “You have to scratch your head about that,” Mr. Romney said.

    Well, gosh, yes you do. Or at least you would if it were true.

    …It turns out, however, that the company, Nemschoff Chairs, which makes furniture for waiting rooms, did not close because of health care reform. “We never said health care reform is the reason we’re closing and consolidating that operation,” Mark Schurman, a spokesman for Nemschoff’s parent company told The Washington Post’s Greg Sargent. “The issue is not the administration’s proposed reform. The issue is there is no certainty as to what reform is going to look like.”

    Mr. Schurman raises an important point – other than Mr. Romney’s habit of neglecting the truth…the only “uncertainty” they don’t talk about is the status of health care reform.

    That’s because this particular uncertainty was entirely manufactured by Republicans – who began plotting to undo the Affordable Care Act by re-legislating it in the courts before the ink was dry on Mr. Obama’s signature.
