Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

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.

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.

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.

As a young , working , guy with an active social life ,I can use that extra 200 bucks!
You fail to note that most of the newly insured will still be moochers, the mooching just becoming institutionalized as a "premium subsidy." Moochers are still moochers whether they have premium subsidies or show up at the emergency room without insurance.

You're only fooling yourself if you think there have been notable strides in strengthening the economy and job growth in the past four years. Obamacare is weighing it down.

Look at any one of these graphs from the Treasury Department and make that argument.

Good morning. Sorry it took me so long to respond. I'm actually in Chicago at the moment and have little time for the computer. Conservatives are bobble heads who nod approval at anything expressed by FOX or hate talk radio. They are not smart enough to look for the truth nor do they care.

Come on now, you know better than that. Obama did not "eliminate" the employer mandate or the cap. He caved into the whining businesses by giving some insurers and employers a one-year grace period to get their act together. Naturally that affects the premium subsidies since a person isn't eligible if an employer has offered “affordable” coverage. I suppose that leaves 2014 open to "the honor system" allowing dishonest people to lie in 2014 about their enrollment but I trust that would never even occur to the average citizen. Must be a Republican thing...always looking for a loophole of which they can take advantage.

The House Financial Services Committee has grown so large that a highly unusual fourth row of seats had to be installed in the committee room. Every term, scores of members, particularly freshmen, demand a seat on the panel — not because they have a burning interest in regulating banks and Wall Street, but because they know that they will be able raise much more money if one of the 61 seats has their name on it.

As Eric Lipton recently explained in The Times, Financial Services has become known as “the cash committee” because interest groups donate more money to its members than to those of any other House committee. More than $10 million has been given to its members just this year, and most of it has come from the big names the committee oversees. Contributors included employees of Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, the Credit Union National Association, the Investment Company Institute, Wells Fargo and many of the biggest accounting firms and insurance companies.

Committee members don’t seem particularly ashamed of the favors they do for those providing the cash. Andy Barr, a freshman Republican from Kentucky, promised to protect a tax break worth $500 million to credit unions.(They gave him $15,000.) And he introduced a bill that would allow banks to give mortgages to people who cannot afford them, undoing a federal rule at the request of the big banks’ lobbyists.(Banks have given him at least $47,000.)

....he introduced a bill that would allow banks to give mortgages to people who cannot afford them, undoing a federal rule....

Not going to happen anytime soon. Speech recognition in medical transcription is the norm now but it's far from perfected. In fact, it requires more work, time and focus to correct.

Technology will have to learn how to decipher foreign accents and the many nuances in each physicians' style of dictating. It still requires transcriptionists' experience and knowledge to transcribe.
