ABC news release a report in September 2012 that stated the US Healthcare system wasted $750 billion in fiscal year 2009. The report from the Institute of Medicine and “suggested the money squandered on services that failed to improve Americans’ health could have provided health insurance for more than 150 million workers or covered the salaries of all of the nation’s first responders for more than 12 years.”
Maybe we should fix the root of the problem instead of shifting increasing costs to business owners, some of which WILL hire fewer people and cut hours.
I’d rather have the freedom to choose my own healthcare plan than risk not having a job when employers can’t keep up with government-forced investments in a failing healthcare system. All businesses are not the bad. Tighter regulation has already been put in place after the Enron, Tyco, GM, etc., cases.
Why are the taxpayers again being ask to bail out another failed industry?
The healthcare system hasn’t been fiscally responsible and political leaders are playing on the taxpayers sympathy and emotions to push their agenda and ignore the issue that government has not and will not be anymore fiscally responsible than the industries they step in to "help".

Obama care has in place many new regulations that are aimed at reducing the waste in health care.

At that point,it is we the people deciding, as our government is us.
If I vote with my dollar, again it is the citizen helping coax the businessman to treat his employees well.
Before government concerned itself with how businessmen treated its employees in America, small children worked in dangerous factories for inhumane hours for little pay. A strict libertarian would say the government should be hands off to business. Well in my opinion, if that became reality, small children would once again be in the dangerous factories working inhumane hours for little pay.

I did not see the KKK standing in front of the voting polls only the Black Panthers and Acorn supports. So who was trying to intimidate who? I was not asked to show an ID. I was only asked my name and address. Signed the book and voted. No intimidation.
The only reason for those appose to ID’s were using minority, student and elderly to hide their criminal acts of voter fraud and ballet stuffing to through the election for communist leader Obama? It looks like is worked.
Pointing to others who may deter people from voting does not address the post you responded to. It is just a diversion. Two wrongs do not make a right. What citizens are doing cannot be controlled by Arnold. What local governments are doing can be controlled by the voter. You and your team of voters are supporting those who make voting hard, and thus suppresses the vote.
Arnold is not supporting the black panthers. If Arnold was supporting them, then your point would make some sense, but as of now, it does not. It is just a pointless diversion.

That's not even close to what I stated. I stated that the Republican agenda was to discourage minority, student and elderly voting with tactics of voter ID and reducing the voting hours in hopes of these groups not casting a vote for democrats, which by the way, did not work out too well, did it?

What is it that cannot be understood about Communism? The government becomes a weapon for the lame and lazy. As an American I have no representation in Washington. Only Socialist or Communist minded people that support such a government that is there now. These people will push us closer to a full Communism system. They will push till no part of the Ideals of Liberty and Freedom for all exist.
Communism. A system of government in which the state plans and controls the economy and a single, often authoritarian party holds power, claiming to make progress toward a higher social order in which all goods are equally shared by the people.
b. The Marxist-Leninist version of Communist doctrine that advocates the overthrow of capitalism by the revolution of the proletariat.
Democratic socialism. General term for the political and economic theory that advocates a system of collective or government ownership and management of the means of production and distribution of goods. Because of the collective nature of socialism, it is to be contrasted to the doctrine of the sanctity of private property that characterizes capitalism. Where capitalism stresses competition and profit, socialism calls for cooperation and social service.
Both of these system promise one thing. All are slaves of the state to live or to be destroyed by the state.
Do Democrats advocate the government own, and manage the production and distribution of goods? Nope. So your charges of democrats being communist are just false.
This being false, just makes your rants look silly. Grow up and use the correct words for the situation. You sound like a fool otherwise. I just cannot take any post that uses the word communism as you do, seriously. It is such a distraction, I find it hard to focus on any of your concerns.

<quoted text>What happens to that employee being treated well, when the "coaxing" from the citizen, forces the business to close? In my opinion, when that happens, it's everyone's loss. From the business owner to the loss of revenue in the tax dollar. That includes the community, schools, etc...
Welcome to capitalism. In capitalism, if the business cannot produce more income than costs, it will go out of business. Now if you wish to tell me a business cannot provide health care and make money, then I will need some evidence. As we know, many businesses do this now and thrive. If you look at the best example of Obama care, you need only look to Massachusetts. Are businesses all closing down there? Nope.
If a business is running so close to cost/profit numbers that the added health care does cause it to shut down, that business would likely have shut down soon anyway from some other cause that reduced its profits.
Papa Johns is not running that close of profit numbers, so that business has no excuse to treat its employees poorly. It is clear, the motives of Papa Johns is pure greed.
Keep supporting that greed and we will all suffer.

<quoted text>I see all the republicans here cannot understand the differences between 'rights' and what is the right thing to do.
Papa John has the right to cut his employees hours if he wants. And I have the right to boycott his business. I have the right to organize others to do so. You see, I am using my rights to right his wrong. This is how capitalism works.
I am not advocating making his cutting hours illegal.
So I am not disputing his right to run his business as he pleases in this sense. I am just protesting his business because he is immoral in how he treats his employees.
How would you address a business that you felt was treating his employees poorly? Do you just do nothing? If so, then you are partly to blame for these problems.
Strangely, republicans do not understand a critical element of capitalism. And that is the power of the voting dollar.
If you are going to promote capitalism, then I suggest you use your voting dollar carefully to make the system work well. Buying without concern is why capitalism produced immoral businessmen.
Maybe you should read a book on libertarian theory.
Mike, you should articulate more clearly "rights" and the right thing to do and then your posts may not be confusing. If you want to boycott Papa John for using his "rights" and not do the right thing, go ahead, that's your "right". I think in the interest of fairness other businesses that treat their employees immorally should be researched. Mike, I understand your reason of having a beef with Papa John, but surely you're not so naive to think that all businesses treat their employees morally. None of us really know the wheeling and dealing that goes on in these big businesses. Again, business owners did not go into business to make money for the consumer, they went into business to make money for themselves. I think you have more of a problem with Papa John's wealth than you do his employees' health. You keep going back to numbers, how much his home is worth; do you have a story about employees that are going to lose their homes because of only working 30 hours a week? Correct me, will not Obamacare take care of these people that won't have health insurance? Mike, companies have been cutting hours to keep from paying benefit for years, heck the government even does it. I suggest you do as I do, if I think a place is hoodooing me as a consumer and their employees, I don't do business with them and I tell others what they're doing.

I've got to hear the answer to this one. The price of healthcare will actually increase. For the benefit of Mike, I didn't hear this on Fox News or Rush; I got it straight from the horse's mouth. Government healthcare providers are even having to decide where to cut on services provided to patients.
