    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.

    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.

    Ramirez gets the facts…YOU need to find and learn the facts.
    Americans cannot “choose” to change jobs…Jobs don’t exist.
    Bureau of Labor statistics:
    1,154,000 fewer jobs exist today than 6 years ago.
    January 2008 had 146,378,000 Americans employed.
    January 2014 has 145,224,000 Americans in a job.
    That is the civilian work force age 16 and older with employment.
    -
    91,455,000 Americans in January 2014 had no job and were not seeking a job, not counted in the nation’s work force.
    -
    The new meme from Democrats is: choice of working or not working and choice of “jobs”….is a False Spin for political escape from consequences of 5 years bad Democrat policy.

    Ok here is where you are wrong, if Apple falls, not all tech firms will fall, I don’t believe in to big to fail stuff. The only way they become to big to fail is when we bail them out. If a company fails at least its assets can be sold and some of the people jobs can be saved. Yes sometimes those jobs are not as good as they were before and that is sad but not a tragedy.

    That money is not ours so why do we have a reason to whine, it belongs to the stock holders and is controlled by who the stock holders place in charge. Usually it is large stock holders who work in the companies themselves who decide who runs things and most of the time that is good sometimes not.

    I had a philosophy teacher in college, he said just because some people make a lot of money they don’t have the right to spend it as they choose, I only agreed with him to the point where yes Congress passes a bill and the President signs off on it, after that no. The people who want to do something with that money don’t know how to deal with it, not social welfare types not the envious and not you or me.
