How about this, moron.
ObamaKare gives corporations a less expensive option to providing health insurance to their employees. It will cost the corporations less to dump their employees onto the ObamaKare system.
The only corporations that will continue to pay more to provide health insurance to their employees are the corporations that are actually interested in the wellbeing of their employees.
Why else would a corporation pay more to provide health care than it would cost them to dump all of their employees onto ObamaKare?
....well?????
Small businesses have the capability of buying coverage for their employees. Over half of all businesses have 9 or fewer employees & can likely save money in the exchanges.

Wow companies saving money. I guess you right whiners prefer to just had them money in subsidies & tax breaks.

Democrats are struggling to help 30 million Americans get health care. Only morons find fault with that. Republicans offer nothing but whine and obstruction.
Most people with a brain realize its the Republicans that are determined to hurt their fellow Americans to make Obama fail. Republicans are sinking their own ship.
When the smoke clears all you right wing morons have left is a party of losers.
And Lois thinks that all the European nations and Canada are pining away for a system like ours!!!
Delusional!

Dumbass Dave doesn't know that many plans on the exchanges are more expensive and lower quality than the plans people had before Obamacare eliminated freedom of choice and made people lose their existing plans and doctors.

Now some people are priced out of health insurance and will be paying the fines, and not getting the health care they had before the Socialist Party screwed them.

Democrats/Obama lie...

It's easier to try and fool people, than it is to convince them you have NOT been fooled you idiot..

"No matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise to the American people: If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period. If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period. No one will take it away. No matter what."

If dumbass Dave tells a lie big enough and keep repeating it, he eventually comes to believe it.

Name the liar you idiot lackey??

A new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll is set for release later today that will find that fewer than one in three Americans think the problems plaguing the Obamacare website are a sign of deeper problems with the law.
.....I’d say it’s likely Obama will take a polling hit from Obamacare’s problems. But my bet is Republicans will continue to fare worse. Remember: polling has not moved much on Obamacare for literally years now. Majorities or pluralities disapprove of the law, but the more finely grained polls find that a chunk of those who disapprove think the law has not gone far enough. And disapproval simply does not translate into majority support for full repeal, let alone the harsher GOP tactics to sabotage the law, which are opposed by large majorities.
The political read on Obamacare among Republicans has for years been premised on the idea that the American mainstream views it as the unequivocal catastrophe and threat to American freedom that GOP lawmakers have long claimed it to be. It’s long been my belief that the middle of the country views the law in more nuanced terms, is willing to give it a chance to work, and sees it as better than the GOP alternative, which isn’t a serious alternative at all. Today’s findings — fewer than a third agree with the GOP view that the current problems reveal it as an unsalvageable disaster — would seem to be in sync with that.
Of course, if the website doesn’t get fixed by the end of November, and problems persist into the new year, all bets are off. In the long run, all that matters is whether the policy works.

Your propaganda piece also says this (which you omitted, liar/Democrat):

"To be fair, this poll was taken before the “Obama lied about keeping your plan” story cranked up in earnest. And that could make a real political difference."

More on the right's favorite gun owner Zimmerman.
When he finally moved out of the home he and his wife shared during the year leading up to and during the trial he left behind a bullet riddled range target tacked to a wall.
That guy is a menace to his family and society. That young mother got 20 years for shooting into a wall. Thankfully she has gotten a new trial.
Anywhere else in Florida; if someone hits an elderly person; he is arrested. Period. Whether or not the victim presses charges. And it doesn't necessarily have to be an old person; but it's more likely with an old person. He has received favoritism.

Against Despair

The bad ideas behind the shutdown.

....Effective political movements create the conditions for their own success. Conservatism has not done enough of that, but when it has prospered it has never been moved by despair. The apocalyptic style of politics holds that the future of the country is at stake. That is true, which is why conservatives need to get to the work of persuading and electioneering — and drop the fantasy of a shortcut.
