i think the issue on it being called a tax part is the entire time before the court ruling Team Obama was like nuh huh it's not a tax. then the Supreme Court said it was.
so either TO was flat out lying or collectively as smart as a speed bump in a Wal Mart parking lot.

Wait...the crack on the article was calling it a tax...when it was. It was even "argued" by the Obama administration that it was and the justices laughed at their lawyer. Seemed he needed the help. So let's back up. My comment was to refute what a liberal here was whining about.

in your opinion what is the best way to rectify the problem created by uninsured people costing the system billions of dollars annually by simply receiving emergency room treatment and leaving the bills unpaid, and the problem of individuals being denied coverage and left to die because of pre-existing conditions?

these are two major, major problems, economically and ethically, and i don't recall seeing anyone really offer an alternative solution other than "that there obummer is just turning us into moscow with his socialisms."



I think that many of us have been screaming at the top of our lungs for the government to allow any insurance companies to cross state lines.

If I want insurance in NC as a self employed person, I almost have to go blue cross blue shield.

Also some heavy tort reform would help out, and have more caps on malpractice.

I don't claim to know the answers to this problem, but for gods sake we certainly don't need more bureaucracy in this country.

You will find out when your employer drops coverage...which is what most will do.

Then simply go to an employer that offers better benefits.

The owner of my company brought this up....said he could drop coverage and we old all go on Obamacare. (We get into these type of discussions daily) I told him we've lost 2 programmers to companies because of health benefits offered (our healthcare plan is awesome if you are single but brutal if married/kid) so health benefits are differentiators for companies just like pay, vacation, 401k....

If you want to attract or retain good/great people you do more not less. Our company is dependent on bringing in bright young people who are high in demand.

But you all know so much more about business. Lol

You're comparing a technical field where experience and professionalism matter...not a high turnover position such as manufacturing.
