    This argument is so full of misinformation, you'd think it was written by a right-wing think-tank funded by the medical industry. Oh, wait, it is.

    Simple solution to the cost of health care problems of business, get out of the personal business of your employees. Make it a national law that prevents business operations to be involved with the personal business of their employees. Pay your employees in money, not the overvalued, dubious so called “benefits”.

    Grace Marie Turner founded the Galne Institute which receives its funding from donations and grants from corporations, foundations, and individuals both inside and outside the pharmaceutical and medical industries.

    We have an example of how Obamacare might affect businesses--the blueprint for Obamacare was Romneycare.

    How has Romneycare affected businesses in Massachusetts?

    “Many large firms are replacing people with technology, such as electronic checkout stations and ordering kiosks, and they are putting full-time workers on part time to avoid the health care penalties.”

    ---Stop the presses---Revelation #1 follows.

    The replacing of people with technology was not invented during the administration of Mr. Obama. Putting full-time workers on part time was not invented during this administration.

    End of Revelation #1

    .ACA is PERHAPS speeding up this process.

    Businesses shouldn't even be part of the health care service regime. Health care shoud be for and about people, not businesses or bureaucratic insurance companies or hospitals with usurious charges. Insured people are going broke over minor illnesses because there is so much greed in the system. We need a single payer system that is dedicated to serving people at every level. We need to get rid of the idea of profit from misfortune.
