    LOL! Oh, the poutrage!
    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.

    Interestingly enough, your company is in a fantastic minority if it is finding insurance is prohiibitively more expensive post ACA. But then again, since you've demonstrated you cant even get the basic facts about your username right, I tend to doubt your story about your employer.

    So the bottom line is that no companies are hoarding cash to prepare for the employer mandate.
    You don't have a clue. You obviously have no experience in the business world.

    Now that makes sense....since slavery was never a domestic policy, but policy forced on the colonies by Britain.

    History is not your strong suit....weirdest post today

    The better healthcare outcomes in other first world countries is a myth. It is not based on actual results of provided healthcare. It is mostly based on life expectancy and infant mortality rates in the US compared to elsewhere. It does not make allowances for bad health habits, obesity, poor diets, drug abuse, alcoholism, ethnic diversity, etc, that have much impact on overall outcomes. It also does not take into account the differences in how the US and most other nations calculate infant mortality. If you allow for all of those differences, the US compares quite favorably in healthcare outcomes.

    To be fair, slavery is something this nation started out with and it took us less time (less then one hundred years) to shake it off then any and all European nations.

    Re: U.S. companies hoard record amount of cash

    For those who believe Barack Obama is mostly responsible for budget deficiets....

    Do you believe he's responsible for...

    A. The aging population who's increasingly living longer while collecting medicare and social security?

    B. The veteran's benefits from the wars in Iraq?

    C. The unfunded medicare part D prescription drug plan?

    If you do believe Obama is responsible for these spending areas would you support Obama issuing massive cuts in these three areas?

    I'm curious why you couldn't find a more recent report than this.

    Again, the mandate is pretty much a minor issue. But it's the last piece to fall into place, so the anti-ACA folks are really banking on THIS little bit to fulfill their ever present predictions of disaster and woe.
    20 million losing their employer funded coverage doesn't seem like a minor issue to me. If there's an updated CBO report, I'd be happy to see it. Usually, if the CBO revises a finding, they report on it. If there isn't one, what does that tell you.

    You complaining about other people's predictions of disaster and woe is pretty rich considering your positions on global warming and climate change.
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
