    My original argument was that this president's legistative agenda has made business dealings more difficult in THIS country over the last three years. Of course the US is better, in almost every way, than almost any other country. The comparative graph should show the ease of doing business in this country over a period of years in order to make a valid counter argument. How the US compares to other countries in the world has no bearing on whether or not the ease in this country has lessened since Obama took office.

    Obama Care: a Sweeping Impact on Part Time Employers - MFRTech

    This article is just a sample of the nightmares businesses like mine are facing right now. We exclusively utilize temporary/part time staff because our patients are over 65. They die. We can make no guarantee of hours or income to workers due to situations beyond our control. To have to provide them with health care benefits or risk a per person penalty would destroy my company.

    I would be interesting in seeing how long it is before he does hire someone, assuming Obama is not reelected. I would bet that it would still be a good long while before he does. People can continue to put the blame on one person, if that what makes them feel better. Our countries problems run much deeper than that.

    health insurance shouldn't be employer-specific. this is a major disadvantage to an American business. health insurance must be untied from employment, and there should also be a public option at the very least. ideally, we will move towards a single-payer system which will have more weight with which to negotiate price. additionally, we should be addressing the shortage of health care workers and the high cost of bringing a drug to market.

    the current system is incredibly inefficient and unsustainable.

    This isn't the thread for it, but I would love to discuss why you consider the current system inefficient.

    So he takes a stand. To call him an idiot without commenting on his reasoning is well, indisputably partisan commentary.

    i was wondering if anybody else understood his reasoning............besides, based on the way that many people feel about O now days, it might just be a great marketing tool for his business

    I don't see how alienating a large chunk of Americans is a good marketing tool.

    That's a double edged sword, though.

    One of my best customers still thinks Obama is really The Messiah.

    How could he possibly alienate a large chunk of Americans?
