My mistake, but the corruption of the process remains.
When employees receive premium subsidies to which they are not entitled because the postponement of the employer mandate delays the verification mechanism, how will the government ever recover the money?
Galt has no problem with proceeding with the entire program (dooming it to failure) or delaying the entire program (including the tax increases), but not picking and choosing which elements to enact.
Ever here the saying, "don't throw the baby out with the dish water?" Why delay the entire program just because some provisions are unworkable in 2014? That is not the way to do business.

Good business practice is to implement the provisions that are workable and work through those that have problems. IMO, republicans are just looking for a way to get their hands on the money earmarked for the Affordable Healthcare Act to fund their own pet projects.

Sen. Moran (R-Kansas), Ranking Member for the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor and Health and Human Services, says that he wants to rescind the $15 million from the aca's Individual Payment Advisory Board and transfer it to Childrens Hospital Graduate Medical/Education program and he wants $1.35 billion transferred to the National Institutes of Health. No surprise those would benefit Childrens Mercy Hospital in his district. Smoke and mirrors. Politicians, in general, have no moral compass.

<quoted text>If I was in the 20-40 year old range and working steady at $50,000 or more a year then I'd find purchasing a basic ,,minimum healthcare plan in the new health insurance exchange at around $250 dollars to be a bargain! I get a good insurance plan starting out on my work life career and save $200 bucks that I don't have to pay the government in 'penalties'. As a young , working , guy with an active social life ,I can use that extra 200 bucks!
You're going to get what you're willing to pay for and can afford.

Unlike like Canada or the UK in the past, you won't have anywhere else to go to get emergent or prompt care and neither will they.

Why not elect somebody who can bring jobs back by creating incentives for manufacturers, repealing Obamacare and getting government out of the way of the private sector?
The chance to do that came and went. We're now stuck in the same quagmire as we've been in the past four years and it's only going to get worse.
Hopefully, the getting worse part will be the silver lining to end the progressive liberal nonsense once and for all that is poisoning the nation.
This is what you call a "quagmire":

S&P500:
3/9/09 - 683
8/16/13 - 1655

GDP:
12/31/08 -(-9%)
3/31/13 - 2.3%

Durable Goods:
3/2009 - 145
3/2013 - 223

Factory Orders:
3/2009 - 330
3/2013 - 475

The two above are in billions of $

6+ million jobs added since 3/2010, 34 consecutive months of jobs gains (36 since 2/2009)

the South in general, as well as large Native American populations in some Western states...

"Blue states" like NY, NJ, CT, and CA appear to pay more than their share because they have higher per capita incomes and get screwed by the progressive income tax.

I don't know why you keep making false chicken-little claims that the entire U S healthcare industry is going to collapse when the Obamacare reforms are fully implemented. That's saying capitalism based on open competition and equal rights of producers and consumers is inherently doomed to failure.

They lost because the Republican party is nothing more than a protest movement. They have no agenda for coping with the changing world. Woulda, coulda and shoulda whiners.
Meanwhile, Obama is changing America and the world in a negative direction.

Also, unskilled labor jobs are shrinking and minorities who once relied on these jobs have few other options.
As long as we keep taxing manufacturers out of the country, that's not going to change. At least until common sense is restored.
Tenzing:
Ya mean like medical transcription?
Yep, a dying art.
So are you implying medical transcription requires no skills? Or that anyone can walk off the street and do the job?

You have to be certified with a two-year college program or through an accredited online or correspondence school.

It takes another two years on the job to hone that skill. To work from home with a reputable transcription company, you have to have at least two years experience in a clinic or hospital and pass a fairly stringent test.

Maybe you're implying medical transcriptionists are outsourced by transcription companies outside the USA?

What exactly are you implying if not insulting the profession?

What you are witnessing is the fundamental transformation of America into a socialist state. There can be no doubt. However this is not reversible. As technology replaces lower paying jobs (manual labor will be all but gone) the need for a well educated population will necessitate great change in the way things are done today. A smarter more rational mind is a mind that will reject the herd mentality. All the problems of today will be gone in ten years. Humans have a distinct inability to project out the causes and effects on their lives that technology will have.

I have news, technology has been replacing jobs of all kinds for decades.
