    That's because people have given up looking for employment... Where in the hell have you been?

    In terms of health insurance the system we have is largely the result of government policy.

    Who makes the determination?
    Perhaps those who gain by taking from others?

    I heard its a franchise owner decision, not a corporate decision.

    Not sure what people are expecting as Health Care kicks in. Companies and franchises owners may not just absorb the cost.

    You do not account for the baby boomer aging out and no longer working, you do not account for the under employed. The statistic the government shows you is who gets unemployment benefits. The total number of people working today is less than in 2008. Please look at your beloved left wing fact checkers when Romney stated 23,000,000 people were under or unemployed - they didn't call it a lie and I'm not about to let you misrepresent it either. Here is the government issued facts - no spin - no right wing blog - look at the numbers yourself:
    ftp://ftp.bls.gov/pub/suppl/empsit.compaeu.txt

    You will see in the first table the difference between 2008/2011 and gee that haven't published 2012 yet - shocking - guess they can get to that now that obummer is destined for his second round of golf.

    Okay. Why not? If I cannot find a way to provide for my own needs why should anyone else be FORCED to provide them for me? I'm not suggesting that people shouldn't have the right to pay for others IF THEY WANT TO, but I have a major issue with people being FORCED to help anyone other than themselves.

    Yes in deed. This is what happened to me and my busienss. People stopped coming, couldn't afford it any more, and my employees got unemployment, so did I after closing, the store is still empty but I understand the homeless squat there so I guess you would find that desirable. The traffic I lost helped two neighboring businesses close, the landlord had the center foreclosed on - guess the bank owns it now. Yes in deed the lefts true colors shining through. I use to pay our government about $60k a year in payroll taxes alone - they get jack now because I get zero dollars. I'm fortunate to have squirreled away enough not to be homeless myself, I prepared for it and am fine. I feel really bad for those who got a year of unemployment and still didn't find work - they could care less about health insurance they just want a pay check.

    Capitalism...it's harsh.

    But people pretending that we're all doomed because of Obamacare are outrageous. There are many reasons why our unemployment and our economy are as it is. Mostly due to the Corporate Capitalist system pushed by the Republocrats which destroys free market competition through government enforced law, oversight, and subsidy. Romney wasn't going to fix that. But there are plenty of developed countries (pretty much the entirety of the West sans America) which has some mixture of government and private health insurance, and those guys ain't dead. This is certainly something we could deal with easily, but people like to Jersey Shore the responses and go insane.
