More businesses for libs to oppose. Time to boycott?

How about we get mad because instead of the businesses paying for their employees' health care, they're trying to find a way to make you and I pay for it. They're basically pushing them all onto Medicaid.

It was out of context.


When used in context it's even more insulting.


So corporations built the roads and bridges and railways they use to ship products? And if a store is robbed, they don't call the police? If it catches fire, they don't call the fire department? They developed the network their website is on?

It's insulting to expect people to pay to maintain the infrastructure that they exploit to make their businesses successful?

What came first, industry and the wealth generated by it or "roads and bridges"?

*looks at Ancient Rome. Roads and bridges came way before any sort of modern industry and were a result of military conquest. Even in the United States out first major highway (in Alaska) was built for ww2

The company I work for is a small business. No more then 30 employees. My boss is a firm believer in supplying affordable healthcare so the company pays roughly 90% of our monthly premium. For full PPO Blue Cross and Blue Shield coverage for myself and my son, I'm paying roughly 200 bucks a month.

But I have heard him talking about how much more expensive it's getting now under Obamacare and how he can't afford to keep footing the higher costs. He already gave himself a 20% income decrease to survive the bad economy (we all got 10%, only for about 6 months. And since business is picking up a bit we've already been paid back everything we lost for that 6 months in "bonus" checks. He never raised his wage back up. And he's not the highest paid person in the company, even though he's the CEO and owner. A very successful salesman of ours who has worked his butt off is making more then him)

I can't imagine he'll be able to cut his wage again to continue paying for all this healthcare. He'll have to start footing the bill to us, but since this is a very small business it's not like our wages are up there anyways. For a lot of the lower workers who are not paid very much at all (but still have full medical and dental coverage) the added cost for insurance could end up breaking them. One particular employee has a very sick wife who is bedridden. He's only our stock guy who is also somewhat mentally disabled.

So, in short, I really hope this Obamacare does some damn good because right now it's petty a massive strain on the company that I work for.

Ah, when presidential terms are limited to 8 years max but their effects can be felt for many more years. That's how it is with pointing the blame at others.

I'd be interesting hearing specifics of how this is going to increase his costs if he already provides insurance to all employees.
