    So why don't business owners support going single payer? Why should business continued to be burdened with providing healthcare? This guy should be at the head of the pack moving on congress and the president to set them free.

    So it is.

    And, he's cutting back employees to 30 hours so he doesn't have to provide health insurance to them. I'm not sure why he'd have to charge customers an extra 5% as well, since he's getting out of providing health insurance. Maybe he has to make a boat payment or something.

    I guess his employees will still have to go to the emergency room and stick the paying customers with the bill, just as they did before Obomneycare became law. What a great system we have.

    It wouldn't have to be. Obviously, someone still has to pay, but it wouldn't have to be the employers. Talk about a tax on job creators, health care has to be one of the major ones.

    Where they will be doing the same thing. This isn't even a hard concept to understand people. Costs do not get absorbed. Honestly, this stupid crap about how people will just revolt when the same crap applies to everyone that will compete against him is just down right idiotic.

    With individuals having that choice, they can vote with their feet. With single payer, they can't avoid it. It will be baked into everything via taxes on all at all levels.

    The government is taking and spreading it around... they are farking the healthcare system in the process. Go to a socialist EU country and tell me their system is better... it ain't... even... close.

    and not the guy putting the extra cost onto the people, and the workers.
    You have NO idea what business is about. It is not a charity... businesses survive when they make a lot of profit... then they can hire to grow and expand. You tax them...YOU PAY THE TAX!!!! YOU PAY THE TAX!!!! YOU... ALWAYS YOU... FOREVER... YOU.

    This is something our school systems have failed to teach... LIFE 101.

    Though this is an argument for a single payer system as well though.
    facepalm... You JUST DO NOT GIT IT DO YOU????????????????????????????????????

    Libs are from Mars... Republicans from Planet Earth.

    This is only the beginning folks... Now that business owners know for sure that Obamacare won't be repealed, you can expect to see a lot more price increases, layoffs, weekly hours being cut and benefit reductions taking place all across the country...

    Because like they say, elections do have consequences.
