On Sunday, the WSJ posted an op-ed I wrote regarding the impact of rising health-care premiums and costs which are leaving consumers with less money to eat out. As I explain, combined with the economic advantages of eating at home due to lower grocery-store prices, we are experiencing what you might call a government-mandated restaurant recession. At the end, I write that the struggling restaurant industry is the canary in the coal mine for the Affordable Care Act’s impact on the broader economy. To improve the outlook for economic growth and patient care, we need a patient-focused alternative to Obamacare. The op-ed is entitled: The Non-Affordable Care Act’s Restaurant Recession.
