    Im in the high risk pool for my State. I also get disability. Those two have kept me alive with an acceptable morbidity.

    I have no problem with a high risk pool, it needs to be sustainable, but my industry experience tells me it wouldn't be a difficult adjustment.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    It is comments like this that lend credence to the notion that some people have that liberals are informationally challenged. Unfortunately, providing health care to everyone will come with a price tag. It would appear that you feel that the price should be absorbed by businesses instead of passing it through to the consumer. In addition, you begrudge the business from cutting man-hours. What, exactly, do you expect the business to do? If they are going to incur additional costs, they must consider hiking prices and lowering operating costs. Do you REALLY think that businesses profits are so sky high that they can absorb these kinds of expenses and still make money?

    I own a staffing agency that utilizes only temporary workers. When we don't have new clients to service, we don't have the work to give to our temporary people. If we allow the workers to work more than 29 hours in a week, we suddenly have to offer them insurance- and continue paying the partial premium even if we don't have any work to offer the temp. My 60-65 hour/week workers just got their hours cut to 29. That way, we can stay in business. That's how it goes.

    There is no way to stimulate job growth while mandating that employers reduce their existing staff's hours just to stay in business. Maybe one day no one will have to work and the government can just provide for all of our needs. Until then, we need businesses to provided jobs to provide income to provide food and shelter. Just how it is.

    I don't know if it's been mentioned in the thread, but this single Denny's owner has lost his franchise and has been disavowed by Denny's corp.

    Link? I saw that the CEO of Denny's came down on him but didn't read anything about him losing his franchise.

    I didn't either. Denny's did distance themselves from his stance, that's confirmed.

    That shows you the direction this country is heading, running a business will become tougher and tougher. If this doesn't turn around the whole country will favor Detroit.

    Detroit may be a kind comparison.

    Oh dear, businesses who offer the bare minimum to their employees will be forced to throw a few extra crumbs in the bucket. What a tragedy.

    It's not even like this really affects businesses outside of that particular sect. And it's also not even like this is a sudden thing. Businesses were already affected by this. Obama's re-election did not suddenly raise the price to run a business. Businesses like Papa John's and this guy really need to spare us the theatrics.

    Trouble is , 2012 and 2013 are the income years used to set your subsidy level for Obamacare..........
