Yes, that the order would take longer if we used the "ipad".(It wasn't an ipad). I suspect waiters don't want people using the devices for a number of reasons.

The taxpayers are providing a subsidy to the moochers.

The exchanges are primarily crappy HMOs and/or have very limited networks. Use our doctor and hospital or no coverage.

Pretty sure most Republicans want pre-existing conditions as part of their health care reform as well.
It's simply not fair or American that a significant number of people be denied medical treatment because they can't afford it.
That's been my beef from day one. The COST of health care - which the Democrats still completely ignore.
There aren't any easy solutions. But the crux of Obamacare isn't it.
Cons idea of affecting cost is tort reform.

But that's no guarantee it will reduce, let alone make health care affordable.

All it does id limit the expense if medical providers screw up.

That's been my beef since day one!

Don't you have another job to attend to now?

There are times when fighting fire with fire is warranted.
But gratuitous insults - especially toward women posters and even Lily - is never acceptable.
That's why you and I and every conservative should resist stooping to their level.
What possible purpose does it serve? It's just makes them look frustrated and unable to win an argument any other way.
Something you people really resist is facts.

I know what a dumbass you are but federal employees work for the government. They have a benefit package that includes health insurance.
Under their plan, the employer (government) pays about 70% of that cost & employees pay 30%..
This would work regardless of where & how the government buys these benefits -through insurance companies directly or through the exchanges.
Do you get health insurance thru your employer. What is their SHARE of those costs,. " OMG OMG OMFG Share! Share! Share! OMG OMG OMG"
ou people are pathetic.
The companies and policies on the exchanges are vastly inferior to the general marketplace. Forcing Congress and federal employees into the medical care basement is entirely appropriate.

Same for Obama.

I had a choice, higher salary or benefits package. Their "share" is actually my compensation for doing the job, its not a "share". Again, see how these idiots think? They can't do anything on their own.

Some Nevada casinos have one woman taking drink orders on an Ipad, which the waitresses then deliver, clearly to increase efficiency and reduce costs.
Fast food restaurants could easily eliminate the counter personnel.
There are now robots that can do that job. Waitress jobs will be long gone soon in most places. Japan is far ahead of us on this. The technology coming online or about to come online will change the way we live dramatically.
