    The article is about S&P 500 corps and since all of them have offered health insurance for years and have very few MW workers, it's unlikely that your obsession with those two issues has anything to do with their hoarding cash.

    But hey, repeating it will get you likes from the partisan hacks.

    One is a die hard Democrat and the other a die hard Republican which utilizes their funds to try to enforce their political beliefs upon the rest of us. You like and forgive Soros for doing exactly what the koch's do because he fits your political beliefs. You condemn the other because he doesn't. One is a hero to you, the other a villain, one is good, one is evil.

    The bottom line their goals are the same. Only from opposite spectrum's of the political landscape.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    How is robbing Peter to pay Paul and Mary promoting the general welfare? Is your logic based on the democratic principle of their being more poor folks than rich folks or "from each according to their ability (to pay taxes), to each according to their need (for free stuff)"?

    Actually, there IS a better summation of the Constitutional role of the government. Here it is:

    We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

    You see, promoting the "general" welfare is only one small part of the role of the government...not the only part. And when you trample on the other parts in your zeal to promote the welfare of the citizen, you are trampling on the reason we have a Constitution in the first place.

    wow.

    the relevant part would pertain to my right to vote for someone who will work to revoke their charter, should it be appropriate.
    My personal citizenship can be revoked, as well. Do you contend you have the right...or the government has the right...to do so just because they want to? Do you think you are justified in voting for someone who will work to revoke my citizenship...just because you want to?

    You are a very dangerous person...dangerous to liberty and justice.

    This thread seems to be about what the government can (or should) do about preventing the "hoarding" of cash - clearly unfunded mandates are designed to do exactly that.

    PPACA and MW laws have nothing to do with S&P 500 corps hoarding cash.

    Find something else to spin into a cause....something relevant

    Promoting the general welfare is about promoting the opportunity for all - not income redistribution to promote equality of outcome for some.

    Of course it is. Ensuring the liberty, tranquility defense and welfare of its citizens are the governments role and responsibility. And you are the threat and the danger.
