Fire every unionista nurse. There are hundreds of English speaking competent nurses in the Philippines who are more than willing to work long hours at near minimum wage. No benefits needed.

So that is your solution? Get rid of american workers and hire foreigners. Wow, thought the tea party was for protecting Americans, not throwing them under the bus.

I think that what TPP was inferring to was that the Tea Party supports the America of corporate capitalists, not deadbeat unionista American deadbeat laborers. We should be free to hire the workers who will give us the most bang for the buck, not those who would bankrupt businesses with benefits and pensions. A worker should be paid that the employer thinks he or she is worth, not some schedule wage or salary determined by government.

Remember, Sutter hospitals are business ventures, not charities or government jobs programs. If the best qualified happen to be foreigners, then so be it. Loyalty to Americans goes only so far, especially in the competitive environment of business and free markets.

Here's key question; why is there a nursing shortage that allows the hiring of foreign nurses? From the industry's standpoint, foreign nurses bring more profits to the stockholders so there's no motivation to produce more licensed nurses. Just check the long list of graduates waiting for their internships. It's all about business, nothing personal.

If there was more emphasis on a good career choice it would be to push nursing for students that aren't mentally, socially, chemically legally-challenged here in the States. Unfortunately, you have to catch them early here, before they start breaking the law.

It is that kind of thinking that has allowed America's big corporations to think it is alright to overlook Americans who need jobs and outsource to foreign countries so their bottom line shows obscene profits. So with that kind of thinking the tea party should remove patriot from their name

You give excellent advice. After the revolution, the revolutionaries took control of the medical industry. Their motive was to use Big Medicine as a means of imposing taxes on the minority of hard working Americans who pay their own cost of Government controlled "health" insurance for the benefit of the dangerous tax eaters and the taxpayer supported Thug community. When the revolutionaries seized control of the medical industry they vastly expanded central Government control over the American people.

It is widely recognized that, since the revolution Government controlled Big Medicine has become the leading cause of death among Americans. This goes well beyond the "mistakes" committed by barely literate "health" workers revolutionary Government brought into the industry for purposes of multicultural diversity.

The GOP Family Health Plan:

1. Don't get sick.
2. If you do get sick and you don't have the money to pay the hospital up front then,
3. Die quickly so you aren't a burden on society.

VOTE REPUBLICAN IN 2012!

My GOP family health plan is thru IMG a USA company that sells my family a better policy than oslamacare for about 2k per year for the family of four.

It is good world wide.....

It will fly me free anywhere in the world to see any specialist.

It covers pre existing conditions after one year.

I pay zero for meds.

Preventative care is free....

But when oslama told John McCain to shut up and sit down as oslama had won the election John was trying to mention this type of insurance that the moron liberals refuse to allow you to buy unless you live outside of the USA 180 days per year.......

So why do liberals want you to pay 15k or more per year for less coverage then I have for 2k per year??????
