    IOW, the employer mandate being delayed has no effect on the corps referred to in the OP.

    well....the OP was about the hoards of cash companies are sitting on

    that money belongs to the companies....no one else

    wish in one hand, **** in the other and see which one fills up faster

    companies hoard funds for lots of reasons.....

    today big deal of Heinz and Kraft is one such reason

    you progressives/liberals can stop licking your chops.....the cash isnt yours.....and it wont be yours

    i corrected it.....period
    image made that statement in response to an incorrect statement by CJ (and I noticed that your zeal to correct incorrect statements didn't extend to CJ's mistake)

    And image wasn't wrong. The employer mandate is now in force.

    I was respondng to the incorrect statement that these corps were hoarding cash because of ACA. Surprisingly, your zeal to correct mistakes does not extend to that claim, and this post of yours says nothing that responds to any point that I have made.

    Who says ? Proponents of the Presidents Health Care law ?

    Companies would rather put that stagnant capital to use rather than it sitting around earning nothing.

    So something is up.

    Also prior to 2008 Banks never let stagnant liquidity sit around earning nothing . But they are now

    A record amount is sitting idle on the books of the FED earning nothing.

    Yup. They are already satisfying demand. No point in expanding when demand is already being satisfied. That would just be wasting money.

    And with productivity (units of production per man hour) increasing, I wouldn't expect demand to exceed production any time soon, maybe never again. We are entering the age where scarcity isn't the issue, the issue is having an economic system that allows everyone to purchase good and services in an ample quantity for businesses to be able to expand. It's a paradigm shift in our economy.

    Sign ups are well under predictions. Oregon's website was a complete failure. Parts of it have been overturned in the courts with more decisions to come. Yeah, I know that giving you truth and facts will confuse you, but that's OK.

    There is a bar at Myrtle Beach that has a sign that says "Free Beer Tomorrow".

    Next year is a lot like tomorrow - it never gets here.

    Yes, it did, since the pubs ran someone who supported a similar program in MA. To paraphrase Truman, when voters are given a choice between a democrat and a republican acting like a democrat, they'll choose the real democrat. And despite his general unlikability, inability to win his home state and democratic tendencies, he still garnered just shy of 60 million votes in an election that saw a huge drop in participation compared to the previous. It also gave BO the distinction of being the first sitting president to win re-election with fewer votes than garnered in the initial election in over 70 years.

    I seem to remember the Senate election going extremely well for the Democrats, too, despite many of their seats being up.

    But that's just reality.

    Please, tell us more how a real Conservative would have a much better chance at reelection. It's such a well known fairy tale.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.
