Well, isnt this swell.

Individuals, the millions who cant afford it, will be forced starting in 2014.

The businesses that can afford it, they get a pass until at least another year.

Thank you fascist system supporters for another bullshit job. This is going to fuck so many people its unheard of.

Meanwhile, the businesses get their way as usual.

I cannot even believe that people support this. What an absolute mess.

Actually, the call was for universal health care. But, the insurance companies and their right wing fascist fucks wouldn't have it. 'Member?

And it does give one pause that there are a hell of a lot of dumbasses that don't want to pay attention to the issues of mergers. http://www.nytimes.com/2013/06/12/business/examinations-of-health-costs-overlook-mergers.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0

Even more dumbasses want to rely on charity.

But, it gets even better, many hospitals don't pay property taxes and no one knows, or often doesn't question, the amount or to whom their charity is directed. Yet, the hospitals continue to expand. How cool is that?

Well what's interesting to me is that obviously the move is away from employer provided insurance, imparting a negative on compensation packages; what incentive is there then for that majority that would actually prefer to have no masters, that would prefer to be self-employed, beyond, say, a steady yet highly taxed paycheck? Wouldn't this discontinuance be somewhat self-defeating in their desire to attract a productive labor force? What we are going to see, I believe, due to limited employment opportunity and incentive, is a resurgence of colonial-styled entrepreneurial-ism. Because I don't believe many will settle for the poverty and limitations of a welfare check. To combat this, government would have to make the small business cost prohibitive and federalize the large-scale corporation, and force labor, to produce a profit margin. I don't believe it's reasonable to envision the US as merely an intellectual headquarters with some small percentage of the population as CEOs, surrounded by a vast majority of welfare recipients, even if we do print our own money and ramp up their standard of living without penalty. Ultimately we would simply enslave some here and institute a supplemental black market. It's not an impossible scenario; it's been done throughout mankind's history. Of course, they'd have to work out some of the details, like who will be the welfare recipients and who will be the slaves, but it's never presented a problem in the past, has it? Gradually, gradually, we could expand this slave population, and as long as we maintain the dollar as the world's reserve currency, bring our corporations back home, to begin again, the cycle of struggle for freedom.
