    In 1942 FDR re-instates the National War Labor Board which had the power to cap all wage increases. the rise of labor unions in the US during the 30's and 40's was putting upward pressure on wages which all started in 1915 with Henry Ford. US employers where allowed to circumvent this be offering fringe benefits in the way of health insurance.

    what was the end effect of this? by 1950 half of all company's with 250 workers had health insurance and two thirds of those with greater than 250 had health insurance.

    so historically what has the GOP done to fight for medical coverage for US workers...George W. Bush and the Medicare Part D plan, being the only contribution by the GOP in terms of providing health care to Americans in US history.
    William F. Buckley describes a conservative as, "someone who stands athwart history, yelling Stop." - and then proceeds to drag civilization back to times best left in history's dungheap.

    "President Obama didn’t kill American free-market health care. It began dying during World War II, when government imposed wage and price controls. At first, companies said, “Great, stability!” But then they realized that they could not attract better workers without raises. So companies got around the rules, as companies do. They gave “benefits,” like health insurance.

    Government then distorted the market further by giving employer-based health insurance better tax treatment than coverage you buy yourself."

    Fuck every entitlement program... If you want some thing earn it, the gov't should have no authority over the people and how we live. You may argue that i will not be forced on this program ect what ever. But these entitlement programs do effect my self and every other person in my generation or younger who is hard working. We pay x amount into social security with a bleak chance of even getting it. Where we are paying into things that may never affect us or we will never benefit from. We should can all entitlement programs use the money to increase more efficient transportation. Just buy lowering transportation costs could decrease the total living expenses of a house hold. IE goods will cost less due to transportation being more feasible. Use the money to increase funding in school systems, youth sports and rec activities. Fund non profites that support child hood cancer and ect. So when situations do arise where children have a horrible condition they can seek out the non profit for support, if there parents are not covered. No its not a perfect answer, but this should also inspire parents and generations to work hard, become education, and better them self.

    My opinion if you have minimum education, minimum experience, minimum work ethic, then you get minimum wage and minimum benefits.

    When Obama came out with his health plan, the pharmaceutical and health care companies were against it. After a series of back-room (i.e. no disclosure of what was agreed upon), and changes to the plan, they're backing it now. If they like it, it can't be good for us.

    also people should be able to depend on their community for support... I know for my self personally my church has helped many people not including members with medical expenses, keeping their homes, school clothes and supplies and ect. But wait were evil Christians that want to take all your money...

    thats called they got a big gov't paycheck...Our Dr.'s just went through a HUGE seminar from it and they are being bribed basically to support it with exceptions, tax breaks, funding and ect. The docs i work with were mind blown they are not greedy most of them are great members of our community and give away allot of money, but they were like I make 50k a month, why do i need a break?

    I don't think the Gov should provide health care...or food stamps, or housing voutures etc. Leave us alone and quit wasting our money.

    unemployment should be an insurance policy that you take, you pay for it for x amount of time you x amount back. If you cant earn it you dont deserve it. If you can not survive on your own you because your family's expense not mine...

    Health-Law Employer Mandate Delayed by Obama Admin. Until 2015

    Businesses won?t be penalized next year if they fail to provide workers health insurance after the Obama administration decided to delay a key requirement under its signature 2010 health-care law.
    The government will postpone enforcement of the so-called employer mandate until 2015, the administration said today. Under the provision, companies with 50 or more workers face a fine of as much as $3,000 per employee if they don?t offer affordable insurance.

    lol this just keeps getting better and better. the individual mandate stays in place once again screwing the poor and middle class while giving big corporations a pass. Obama 2016!

    funny how its implantation will now be after the mid-term elections. coincidence? I think not.
