Representatives Upton and Walden are correct in one of their complaints about the Obama administration: the threat of retroactive regulation by the FCC (How Obama Puts the Brakes on Business. Wall Street Journal, October 17, 2013: A15).
Retroactive legislation or regulation is odious. The great uncertainty it generates makes it impossible for anyone to make informed decisions about their actions. The FCC should withdraw that aspect of their rules.
As for the problems induced by Obamacare in terms of reducing employment to get under the 50 person limit, this shows the stupidity of not enacting a completely changed system that disconnected health insurance from employment. Alas, politics got in the way of sensible reform.
