The state of Virginia is cutting back hours to avoid having to provide health care for many of its employees. 30 hours is the threshold that Obamacare sets and many are seeing their hours cut to just below that.

The impact on Pace and thousands of other workers in Virginia is an unintended consequence of the health law, which, as the most sweeping social program in decades, is beginning to reshape aspects of American life.

Unintended consequence…they said it, not me.

Yes, Virginia, markets work…whether you want them to or not. The invisible hand is there. Even if you don’t see it, you will certainly feel it.
