    Ramirez is so over the top, he is entering the level of Jon Stewart’s commentary.
    He is showing the absurdity of the “Death Panel” and conservative fears.

    People are now FREE to leave their current job if they were only staying to get insurance. They can now CHOOSE to get a different job, start a business, stay home with the children or go back to school


    That’s always been the case.Only now they will not have their employer paying for part of or all of their health insurance.They get to pay themselves.Or be on the tax payers dime if they make less then $46,000 a year.

    Why is health insurance in the US tied to employment? What’s the connection? The unemployed don’t get sick?

    Let’s start with the careers of right wing extremist cartoonists.

    “if you read the report it’s way worse then what the WAPO or the NYT tell you. Not that you want to confront reality.
    And so now you want to force women to leave work and go back to the kitchen and child rearing because they get money from your paycheck as a subsidy to pay their health insurance (note I didn’t say care as that is a different subject)
    it is people like you who have no understanding of economics or human nature who become communist/socialist/satists and try to force people to confirm to your views”.

    Amen brother. Its that mother’s child that is going to be paying for that insurance.

    When anytime you have a group of people who decide your insurance and health care at some point it is a death panel.

    At some point companies started group rates for employers to give to their employees. It caught on because it allowed some control of labor costs.

    “I did read the report, thus I know you lie about it, the 2.3 million were the job that were going to cease to exist, if people quit because trhey were “free” to, the job would still exist needing a new person”.

    Let’s say your right, that is still 2.3 million more not paying taxes and taking more out of the system. That is the deal, when ever one person goes to work that is less welfare and starts paying in, when a person stops he starts taking more. It is a 2 for one effect.

    Eons ago, it started out as an inducement to attract qualified workers. Healthcare + Job became a “normal, accepted”, situation. Sick, unemployed people go to hospital emergency rooms for treatment.
