Another thing, Social Security is going up about 15% to help cover Obamacare. If they don't keep the tax cuts, they are going up also. Dems refuse to cut spending. GOP has offered to raise taxes on wealthy, but it is only fair they get spending cuts.
America is going to fall, Obama is going to fail. Communism and socialism has never worked to increase wealth. Both stagnate economic growth.
For you liberals information, private companies have almost always offered health care because they want healthy employees not missing a lot of work time. Government meddling in the rules has caused this, not private companies.
Like Ronald Reagan said, "Government is the problem, not the solution".
In 1960 with the limited federal meddling in everything, 85% of Americans had health care insurance.
Once medicare, medicaid, and all the government meddling, that dropped, because of the rules, conditions, etc, that government placed on companies, not just the health care business, but the companies looking for health care for their employees.
Also, the "giant sucking sound" that Ross Perot warned us about with the free trade agreements taking our industry overseas. All manufacturing companies of any size provided health care for their employees. We had 35% of Americans in 1960 involved in manufacturing 65% were in the service industry or government. Today, only about 11-12% are in manufacturing. Manufacturing jobs paid decent wages for the working middle class. Today, all people can find are part time jobs, very few full time jobs left.
I have three small contractors installing pipelines and none of them want to hire because of so much government red tape and they are still unsure about the economy. Young people today don't want to dig ditches. Young people can't pass the drug tests required. Young people can't pass the credit checks, nor background arrests checks. The last two labor jobs we hired college grads because over 200 people put in for each job. Over 190 of the 200 of these young people couldn't pass any of these checks. We interviewed 5 for one job an 6 for another, and the college grads got the jobs because they needed to work. One was married and was starting his family, so he didn't mind digging ditches. He later got a promotion with a job came open. The other one is waiting for a promotion to open up.
Only a handful of young people are worth hiring today. Drug testing alone keeps a lot of young people from getting decent jobs.
