By the way what does the Preamble say about Defense and welfare?

    All I see from liberals like you is more ranting about the private sector but never about the true greed held by politicians, politicians of both parties. Everything I see from people like you is how to extract more money from someone else but never cutting the size of the govt. that money funds. Why is that?
    yes. Companies outsource for low wages and not to pay healthcare. I linked something on that once for you. As most don't actually pay much in taxes, it's really hard to believe you swallow the taxes argument.

    That is because you buy the liberal rhetoric that big govt. helps people, Big govt. only helps bureaucrats while making people dependent. You really don't seem to understand the role of the Federal Govt. vs the role of the state governments. Tell me how cutting the size of the Federal Govt. in half hurts millions? Think the state governments are going way? How about the local governments? How about the communities? Liberalism is a disease that continues to grow is size and control, just like cancer

    The hikes — the largest in the past three years, according to Morgan Stanley’s quarterly reports — are “largely due to changes under the [Affordable Care Act],” analysts concluded. Rates have been growing increasingly fast throughout all of 2013, after a period of drops in 2012.

    While insurers were hiking premiums since 2012 by smaller amounts, the lead-up to the Obamacare’s launch has seen the average rate at which premiums are growing fourfold.

    But this article biases what it says on a survey. So, who was surveyed?

    That is certainly your opinion, companies outsource because of higher taxes and regulations in this country. We have liberalism and social engineering to blame. Businesses pay taxes, businesses pay the cost of regulations. Just goes to show how little you know about business

    Isn't it great having your premiums subsidized by someone else?

    you don't seem to accept the fact that the state has lost many arguments with the federal government because no state government is superior to the federal government.

    Your's is anecdotal at best, and not the norm. So, you don't agree with the results of the survey so you call it bias....Tell us Joe, what is the bias you see? The survey is linked in the article....look at it....

    This is just more you knee jerking a response without reading what is provided you....And you teach? Dear God.

    No need to outsource when you can do these things.

    Perhaps, but treat your survey like I posted it. What is being surveyed and how?
