    Because now, on top of the added burden of regulatory compliance, he has to pay additional taxes because he doesn't purchase health insurance. That's just part of the cost of a stupid program that takes the problems in our health care system and doubles down on them.

    There are two sectors of the economy that the government heavily interferes in, on top of providing much of the expenditure for: Education, and Healthcare.

    Not coincidentally, there are two sectors of our economy which over the last two decades have seen prices spiral: Education, and Healthcare.

    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.
    Anyone who deliberately ignores this isn't serious about costs.

    Meaning that Henrin and Zimmer for starters aren't really looking for an honest discussion.

    An honest discussion on healthcare has to address the status quo and the alternative. Complaining about a proposed solution while never addressing the existing system is pretty dishonest. Effectively, those who never address the status quo are implicitly arguing that it is right and just to continue the brazen theft of premiums. Apparently it's wrong to redistribute money via taxation, but it's okay to redistribute healthcare via theft.

    Dishonestly runs deep in many people here.

    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Yep, I paid into unemployment insurance for 6 years and took a years worth out. During that year I prepared for life without income. I'm living it - have been for 2 years since. Oh I've managed a couple of decent contracts here and there for odd jobs which were great but my life is upside down compared to 5 years ago. In some ways its better. I can grow / hunt for my own food, have my own power supply, and was thankful to be able to sell off enough of the businesses assets to pay off the house or I might have lost it. I'd never be able to make a mortgage payment today. You do realize "unemployment insurance" is an insurance to which I paid a premium for right?

    Frankly, anyone on TRICARE should be legally barred from discussion healthcare other than to discuss how government healthcare such as TRICARE sucks.

    Respouting the lies of the rich.

    Dennys has about 10,000 employees, so the fine they will pay is only $20 mil. They have over $400 mil in profits WITHOUT charging more for
    anything.

    Its just more retailiation agianst the masses.......

    Wrong numb nuts. It's Aints free.
    These businessmen reacting to Obamacare are jumping the gun. They have no extra costs right now. This tells me they are just retaliating for Obama getting elected. Businesses do not have to provide health coverage for their employees until next year.
    Talk about sore losers. Americans don't like sore losers.

    BS!
    Eliminate the ER mandate.
    Hell you could greatly reduce cost by limiting the function ER now serves.
    That is one way to take care of it.

    Sure lets just eliminate people from the discussion because they earned something right?
    Ridiculous.

    What their profit is, or what they do with it, is none of your business.
