    Isn't WalMart the company who got in trouble for firing "older" employees just before retirement to avoid paying them their earned benefits?

    I'm guessing the Republican's are happy. Isn't this what they want too! Delete, or push back and extend elligability dates on entitlements for the elderly.

    Hmmmm. Maybe now we can have loss leaders to lure gullible folks in.

    Or maybe we can tell suppliers that they MUST provide products and services for such low prices that they will be forced to send their operations overseas. Maybe we will finally allow Medicare to negotiate lower drug prices with drug companies.

    But then again, we might wind up cutting the pay of everyone except CEOs down to minimum wage and force everyone to seek help from food stamps.

    I'm really not sure the WalMart way is the best way.
