    …which is was Clinton wanted in the 90s (and was rejected) and what Obama actually wanted. “Obamacare” is just the Republican proposal that got shot down in the 90s for giving too much power to the private insurance companies.

    The kid looks like Alfred E Newman. Mom has been eating too much junk food which she orders on her free cell phone and pays for with food stamps. She could just get rich by spilling hot coffee in her lap.

    @Ms. Ima

    Again the big lie from the dittohead. You make three big mistakes.
    1. There are more people looking for work than there are jobs available.
    2. Many (most) of the available jobs do not provide the benefit of health insurance.
    3. Your third mistake – you posted, showing once again how silly you are.

    Tying health insurance to a job is stuoid: the American dream is out of reach when starting a business means having no health insurance for your family.

    If they are typical, they have a nice home, a nice car, nice clothes, a cell phone for each family member, and cable TV. But, they cannot afford to care for their own children’s medical needs, which generally cost far less than any of the above mentioned luxury items.

    As a small business owner, I would love to have 6 full time employees right now (five years ago I had that many employees). But with the costs of everything going up, right now I can afford one full time employee and two part time employees. The more my costs go up, the less people I can afford to employ. I can’t just print money like the government. I have so much money to go around, and if my costs are less, I can hire more employees. If I have less money, I have to cut back – doing more work myself and putting off doing some tasks. It doesn’t take rocket science to understand the concept.

    Take the money we “borrow” to give to other countries and pay for all the crisis cases. There we be plenty left over…Without the free market you have nothing.

    You are incorrect. The Clinton plan was a “managed care” plan similar to Obama’s. Wellstone-McDermott was the single-payer plan in those days, and the Clintons never supported it.

    @Ms. Ima

    Thank you for stating so clearly what everyone knows about the right wing—their position is that if someone can’t afford medical care, then “they should die and reduce the surplus population.”

    That’s funny – what do you really do – write fiction? Every successful business I have ever seen had a simple guideline for determining how many employees they should have – they hired as many as they needed to do the work.

    If you are still serving the same number of customers with 3 employees as you did with 6, something was wrong with your staffing level.If you have fewer customers, it behooves you to either get more customers or eliminate some of the drain on your resources.

    The Free Market should determine the price of services, aka keeping cost in line with consumers’ ability to pay.

    AHA takes the consumer completely out of the equation, while jacking up costs for doctors and employers, and requirements/mandates for insurance companies.

    Next step: subsidize all who can’t afford premiums, copays, taxes, etc. Oh…and install a ‘Minimum Profit Standard’, so that all companies will have a guaranteed accounts receivable level, so that they’ll be able to pay increased wages to people who can’t afford the premiums, copays, groceries, mortgages, new shoes… Yeah, that’ll work.

    In what country do you live where medical care costs less than a tee shirt and jeans? I don’t see the cell phone or the car in this cartoon. And except in NYC, a car is not a luxury item. It is a way to get to work. Cell phones don’t cost a lot more than old landlines used to. Who are you Parkersfield? Why are you trying to snatch the rug out from anyone’s feet?

    @parkerfields

    And your employees all have huge luxuries, big cars, big houses and big cell phones, right? I am also a small business. I support the taxes I pay for my employees. I cover insurance. I am a very small business. I also have one full time and 2 part time. I support anything this government will do to preserves the investment I and my employees make for their welfare. Why are you mentioning rocket science?
