    Simple solution: Get business out of the employee’s personal life.

    A good step in the ending of the Voluntary Slavery known as employment would be to remove one’s employer from non employment issues.

    A person’s, an employee’s, health care is his own business and should not be controlled by who he works for.

    A business buys from other suppliers without forcing them to accept “benefits” as part of the price of the goods. It should do the same for the suppliers of mental and physical labor.

    Yes, we should turn over health care to the magical money machine in Washington. It will save us all to have an entity that is already $17, 000, 000, 000, 000 in debt cover everyone health care. And who will pay for it? No one. It has worked so well in Europe. Just ask Greece, Portugal, Italy and Spain. And yes, in France and some Scandinavian countries you can now buy health insurance because the governments keep cutting back on what they will pay for.

    At a time when we have a debt which exceeds out gross domestic product and have a record number of retirees about to start making withdrawals, having the government take over health care is the only rational alternative.

    The Single Payer option was a key thing in the plan originally and guess who gutted it? The Repubs! That itself would have made a huge difference allowing even more flexibility. Perhaps that will come back on the table in the near future when people see this and ask for it. And that's if the current and future leaders will listen to the people.

    I cannot believe the AP would produce a story that tells of the damage Obamacare is doing to the job market! will wonders never cease?

    every bill the house passes to repeal Obamacare IS a jobs bills, too bad harry won't go along.

    too bad the party of your choice gave us this monstrosity. You were aware that employer-based health insurance came about because FDR (D) tried capping salaries, messing with the free market, didn't you?

    If only we'd been able to get the single payer system we need in place, those same businesses could have been taken out of the health care delivery process entirely.
