"Obamacare delenda est"
Healthcare and businesses are the product of peoples labor. To claim anyone has a right to another persons earnings/labor is a form of slavery. Workers have the right to the wages and benefits they earn through their labor at completive market rates. If their labor doesn't earn healthcare benefits because of the labor rates for their labor, then they don't deserve it and to take away from others, even employers, to give it to them is to make that employer or others slaves.
Any person, in any thing, is only entitled to what they earn or create for themselves. Anything that comes from another must be purchased with what they earn, otherwise, they are not entitled to it, they have no right to it, and to claim otherwise is to claim to be a slave master to those who did earn or create it.
Personally, no, I don't pay what you said. I don't pay a premium nor do I pay a deductible. My healthcare premium was paid through years of service and becoming disabled during that service.
Be sure to work hard and get lots of overtime. People on welfare want more steaks and free upgrades to smart phones with unlimited data packages.
we all benefit from society and from social order. taxes are the bill for that order. to claim that someone is "stealing" from someone else is akin to claiming that the electric company is stealing from me when it sends me the bill. cut the poor off from health care, and we'll learn what disorder looks like.
i agree about malpractice insurance. we are all going to have to accept a higher degree of risk; it currently costs a billion dollars just to get a drug to phase three. aspirin probably wouldn't make the cut if it was discovered today.
either way, it doesn't matter. we aren't going to deny health care to those who can't afford it. our next best option is to figure out the best way to provide it. what we're doing right now is not the best way.
I'm old enough to remember the discussions a couple of decades back about reducing the work week to 4 days to cut down on traffic, etc. and to give more people the opportunity to find employment. It never really got anywhere because those who favored it most still wanted to be paid at the 5 day level just working only 4 days and those paying the wages would never go for that so the compromise was job sharing where people ended up working 2 days one week and 3 days the next week, and vice-versa, for those who didn't want or need full time employment - usually women with young families.
Anyway, this new push to reduce hours of work is clearly one of those "unintended consequences" of know-it-all politicians who don't bother to read the legislation they pass in their haste to do what they see is right.
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.
