    Because sometimes people, our fellow citizens, fall into circumstances due only to an illness. It wipes out their savings and their home and tears apart their family. How is that good for the health of our country to then put more people on welfare?

    Or we could continue to go the route millions do already and follow Romney's model of getting picked up by an ambulance for a ride to the ER and then receiving treatment for which they won't pay?

    We can continue to pay more what we could pay less if we just managed it up front.

    Though this is an argument for a single payer system as well though.
    Quite right. OP is typical ostrich scare tactics

    Without venture capitalists you wouldn't have that machine you're typing on. Nor would you have the energy to power it.

    I'm surprised that employers taking such a stance instead don't just reduce employees wages in the amount of $2000 (the buy out price) spread across the year - which equates to about 85 cents an hour? Unless the company isn't more than 85 cents an hour over minimum wage, this would be entirely legal.

    We just need to get a proper single payer system already, no point to tie it to employers

    The base problem has always been the same - how to get there from here. The larger we grow population-wise the less possible it will become (the transition).

    People will just tip 5% less. No big deal.

    Well first off the problem you have with Bain is most likely its Private Equity division and not venture capital. Venture capital is simply funding provided to high risk, new companies. Private Equity is where you see LBO's and such, and if you believe the stories that the media spouted about PE then you're an ignorant fool.

    No, the number of people that have just up and quit looking has fallen steadily. Such a fantasy world you live in.
