    Oh sure one can go into the open market, but the whole employer based insurance pools makes for lower rates since you have a larger pool. Also prior to the ACA there was the issue of preexisting conditions.

    Also saying "personal choices" is a bit broad in your response. Now if you mean you trust your employer to make health insurance choices better then the government, that is fine.

    Sirius just terminated one of their DJs for stupid tweets. I actually support that decision. Employers should have the right to terminate people who they believe negatively impact the company.

    But that story, like what we're discussing, all have nothing to do with the Hobby Lobby decision.
    I was merely responding to your comment, which I disagreed with, and delienated the reasons. If my disagreement had nothing to do with the topic, neither did your comment!

    Let's declare it an off-topic draw!
