    Not necessarily. That's why he asked.

The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Yet another reason to consider UHC.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    You could replace BC with anything
    this is the only real issue here to be made, if theres going to be one made anyway.
    I didnt read this whole thing but:
    is anybody actually saying theres a right to BC?

    My uncle runs his own photography studio. He is in the same boat, he wants to expand to his own printing to though and then he could.

    The entire employer-based health insurance system is outdated, obsolete, economically idiotic and inefficient, and frankly I think is an abomination.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    and that means what to me? nothing lol

    not to mention how do you come to that conclusion? all i know is that he wants all women to have access to cheap/free BC whether that is provided by the employer OR the insurance company. DO you know something factually different? "Seems" he couldnt care less either he just wants it available no matter where it comes from

    BUT I could be wrong, can show me other wise where he factually disagrees with the fragment qoute of mine you posted?

    Should it be required? No. But, I think it is incredibly short-sighted... economically... to not provide it.
