    Actually Dan that is incorrect. In my filed that is happening. People jump from job to job. But in 90% of those jibs HEALTH CARE IS ALREADY a benefit

    so we should raise taxes and expect them to keep the same amount of employees?

    I am unsure who has what kind of business experience, but most who posted here would not have a business that lasted longer than a year or two.

    comparing advertising costs to benefits costs, show people know little about how a business runs.

    Comparing advertising costs to health care costs is ridiculous. They both have benefits to the business itself, but advertising is far more expensive.

    but is needed or you will not retain or gain business, no two ways about that.
    i do agree it is crazy costs, so perhaps we can get cable and local channels to drop prices on add insertion and then free some money up for benefits?

    To lay people off and then blame it on Obama is just another partisan play by Republican supporters.
    wick, where does all of this extra money come from? the money tree?

    and then they can just jack up their fees to cover the revenue reduction (and their insurance as well). obviously, the consumer and the taxpayer bear the ultimate financial burden of all of these new rules.

    Well in the case of corporate welfare, also known as Republican policy, it comes in the form of extra tax cuts for the wealthy and corporate communities. They, in turn are supposed to start hiring people for no reason other than more money in their pockets. Smart businessmen don't hire unnecessarily just because they have extra money. They hire when there is a necessity in the form of more business. In order to have more business more people need more jobs. That's where trickle down fails.
    Instead we're giving people health care so they don't go broke paying to get treated for minor things. That's extra money. Knowing they won't go broke if something major happens means peace of mind, which equals spending which equals more business which equals more hiring which equals even more spending which equals more profits. I feel like I've been over this.

    I'm crazy too!

    I believe a good employee is a happy employee.

    Man, this "liberal utopia" sure is an upside down world!

    I just LOVE IT when Stewart (a comedian) can absolutely DESTROY the other side with REAL facts.

    In the End it's Fox News that looks like the comedy show.
