    Small Business Faces Big Bite

    This is really going to suck.


    WASHINGTON -- House Democrats on Tuesday unveiled sweeping health-care legislation that would hit all but the smallest businesses with a penalty equal to 8% of payroll if they fail to provide health insurance to workers.

    The House bill, which also would impose new taxes on the wealthy estimated to bring in more than $544 billion over a decade, came as lawmakers in the Senate raced against a self-imposed deadline of this week to introduce a bill in time for action this summer.

    No, it's going to provide MILLIONS with healthcare! That's right, millions. Of course, most of those will be newly unemployed as small businesses start firing people to pay for the added cost of business.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    It's going to put more people in the welfare line. That's the objective, anyway.

    How long until people realize that Obama is actually TRYING to ruin the economy for his own idealogical purposes? Government-dependent people is his ultimate goal. He might as well office in Havana. That sounds crazy, but it's true.

    I pay my employees enough to get thier own damn health insurance or choose not to have it. It's gonna suck for them when I have to reduce thier wages to avoid this crap.

    I was thinking the same thing. Employer's that currently don't offer healthcare benefits are going to cut their employee's salaries to afford this or lower the amount of employee's they have.

    If health care reform is going to go through it should be a option along side private healthcare not a requirement for anyone.

    That might not be true in all cases. When I first met my wife she was forced to obtain her own insurance and she had to pay $350 a month for a crappy HMO that practically only covered routine check up.

    The options for single individual private insurance is crap unless you can throw over $500 a month at it.

    It all depends. I give my employees enough to pay that $500 or more.
