The reason the "bill" keeps getting larger is not because the debt limit isn't high enough. The reason the "bill" keeps getting higher is not because the Treasury is not selling enough T-Bills.
It's spending to much money on things like Obamacare.

1. The ACA mandates what must be covered in the plans already in force out there, so although employers may not all just drop them on their own, the things that may have been negotiated in terms of keeping premiums low for their employees may disappear, and premiums will skyrocket causing people to choose whether or not they can afford the adjusted employer based plan, or the costly higher deductible government plan. Either way, it is a lose, lose for the middle class worker.
2. Some pretty big employers are indeed dropping their HC insurance plans, and or, at the same time reducing hours to meet the 30 hour work week requirement under the ACA to avoid the penalty for dropping them, thus shifting the burden of insuring these people from the employer, to the tax payer.
Now, it is no secret that liberals have a certain disdain for profit, and business in general terms, but this is highly cynical. It would seem on the surface that the latter part of my points helps business, but in fact it hurts them in the long run...Think of it this way, if a business makes everyone part time to avoid the current penalties involved with the law today, then has to go out and hire say 25% more people part time to cover production at current levels, (which due to current administration meddling with the BLS accounting as to what qualifies as a job) makes the administration look like hero's right? Now consider, the end goal of this turd of a law, is to get to a single payer system ultimately, at that point, you have people in the middle, and lower classes here screwed. Their downward adjusted hours means less pay, and their taxes go through the roof to cover the costs, and that includes business as well. It is a cynical, and devious plan to be sure.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
