Expert disputes tax firm’s claim Obamacare saves AR businesses money


By Nic Horton | The Arkansas Project

A few weeks ago, as the debate over re-funding the Obamacare “private” option was heating up, the tax prep firm Jackson Hewitt released a “study” that allegedly proved that expanding entitlements in Arkansas would save businesses money! If that sounds too good to be true, that’s because it is.

I wrote briefly about some of the flaws of this report last month. Now, Jonathan Ingram of the Foundation for Government Accountability has released a new paper that more thoroughly debunks many of the claims that Jackson Hewitt made in their efforts to persuade the legislature to continue down the Obamacare path.
