Do you think this is a good enough reason?

.....for small businesses to act?

One woman's experience with the approaching health care "change".

"When the Obama Healthcare changes kick in, we will be LOSING our private insurance, despite all the promises our wonderful president made that if we 'like our doctors, we can keep them. The changes will force insurance companies to increase what they charge. The lawyer for my husband's company says the cost could double."

And small businesses get a hard time for sending jobs to China.

Despite popular belief, businesses exist to make a profit, not to provide for EVERY need of every human being they employ.

We pay our own health insurance.
We have no "company" to pay it for us.
We have a company, because we haven't needed to be babysat.
The country is going bankrupt because for decades, people have felt the need to stick it to the idle rich, oh, and your many local Mom and Pop businesses, too.<

  • i believe this country is "going bankrupt" because it spends more than it has.
    i don't think many people want to stick it to the rich.

  • We don't all have the same opinion on the Health Care ssue,obviously,but I really don't take comments serioisly from "the man on the street" or the woman in the OP's comments . I really don't listen to rumors. Lets just wait and see what really happens.

  • This woman, in the thick of things is presenting her feelings of discouragement about the issue.

    If the CBO has deemed the cost this "health care" overhaul as unsustainable for the country, in the long run, it's surely going to be a fiscal pain in the azz for everyone else.
    Unless you are just basically added to medicaid, where health care is free anyways.
    Who wants the cost of their health care to go up as much as this lawyer predicts for these people?
    Not me!
    The CBOused the phrase "unsustainable"!
    What else do people need to know?

  • Are these facts or more rederick.  You have no idea this will happen.  You keep talking about us being bankrupt.  What do you think happened for 8 years.  Of course we are in a recession.  Look at the cost of being in Iraq for 8 years,  and while we needed to pay for that we cut the taxes of the richest 1%.  It doesn't take a genius to figure it out.  All of your health care talk is crap.
