    Re: People say they're moving to Canada because of Obamacare

    My wife and I are self insured, the concept of employer based insurance is the same as Costco, buy in bulk and save. I guarantee there is no savings cutting loose from the group. Where my wife and I see savings is by shopping around for doctors and dentists who give a discount for paying in cash for minor things. 20 to 25% or I go elsewhere.

    Our Health insurance is the equiv of 2.50 an hour in wages, that is not the reason companies outsource, the 30 cents an hour wage a chinee factory worker makes is. The lack of much concern what the factory dumps in a river is. Worker survivability isn't as big a concern when millions are waiting to take a maimed worker's place. Living 7 in a tiny barrack style room is.

    It is interesting some support tariffs to protect American workers driving up the cost of goods but balk at healthcare because they figure it would do the same.

    The problem with that being the fact that your founding documents have no provision for any such program; or are you just going to continue to ignore that document as your government has for the last century and a half?
    the constitutionality was settled under Helvering v Davis, 1937.

    Let's just say I am not a very big fan of MOST of the rulings the SCOTUS came out with in that era.

    if you support the drug war, though, it's largely enabled by Wickard v Filburn, another ruling of that era.

    you win some, you lose some, i guess.

    In that era the wins were few and the losses were prevelant. Very much like these days.

    That's funny, I guess they don't know that Canada has Health care delivered through a publicly funded health care system,

    the justices who came up with that idiocy should have been broken on the wheel

    Just this morning I heard that 46K Canadians come to the US for healthcare because the wait in Canada is 40-60 days.
