    You know, I don't think I possess the type of brain required to engage with you. I think it best to leave you to your efforts.

    Thanks for taking the time to try.

    We would. And how much would depend on the plan. But it would have to be less than we are now.

    So what has Obama done other than drive up wages to affect manufacturing jobs in this country? Apparently your personal income is such that you have no problem paying higher costs for American goods. Do you have a solution or just more whining? Doubt you are proposing Asian wages in this country to keep costs down?

    The ACA was supposed to reduce costs as well, but that hasn't occurred...
    I don't often change my signature, but this was just too over the top to let anyone forget with what this country is up against...

    Minimum wage increases however the point should have been driving up costs not simply wages. My error

    I don't think I made a claim about time period.

    Please dispute the accuracy of my statement. Your post has no relevance.

    Some ideas:


    Business Coalition for Single Payer Healthcare The complete solution to health care, Now!

    An Improved Medicare-for-all system provides business with many benefits:

    It reduces labor costs by 10-12% (a 3.3% additional tax on wages* versus today's 10-15% of wages for medical insurance).
    It reduces liability and auto insurance costs.
    It reduces worker compensation costs, likely by half.
    It eliminates health benefits management costs and yearly insurance company and labor contract negotiations for health care.
    It creates healthier personnel and more employee stability, reduces absenteeism, and eliminates employer health system complaints.
    It reduces the need for part-timers, and provides easier recruiting (no pre-existing disease or COBRA issues).
    It eliminates employee health-related debt and personal bankruptcies.
    It will expand the U.S. economy and business climate by freeing up family income to purchase new products and services.

    Business Coalition

    Cost containment has actually begun....and the ACA is not even in effect.

    Besides, I already told you that those who get their primary care with ER services will get them from personal Dr's. Those costs will decline.

    It was built on republican ideas, so what did you expect?

    But it does improve access, so at least you're getting more for your money.
