    He's not a leader, dear or otherwise. And he does it because he's the same kind of asshole all presidents with that power seem to be. Bush, Clinton, Obama, others as well I imagine, they all f' things up like that, and they all do it to appease corporate interests, not yours, not mine, not anything akin to a real small business. Hope that clears things up for you.

    Not for an idea they figured out wouldn't work. And that's not to mention the boatload of additional bad ideas Obamadon'tcare came up with.

Sure, that would mean more work for them..........And? We pay them enough, they enjoy the perks and power that we give them, and they are the ones that make our gov't so big that it's barely sustainable. Let them enjoy the fruits of having to legislate every blink of a citizen's eye.

    But when it does, it involves Obamacare.

    The problem is both parties maintain this system for when they are in power, even if it hurts them when they arent.
