No business is required to pay for medical coverage for their employees. Where do you get these silly ideas? Let me guess.... Glenn Beck or Rush Windbag?
Under OBAMACARE they ARE required to do so if they have more than 15 employees.

So if a 16-year old entrepeneur as a lawn-maintenence business and has more than 15 high school kids working for gim, then under OBAMACARE HE must pay their health insuranc. THAT is the Marxist law now !

And John Roberts stupidly ruled that OBAMACARE is perfectly Stalinist and ok. What a dope !

LDS or Utah land of Loonies or ROCKheads have finally come out of the closet.

A (disturbed) Utah coal company owned by a vocal critic of President Barack Obama has laid off 102 miners.

The layoffs at the West Ridge Mine are effective immediately, according to UtahAmerican Energy Inc., a subsidiary of Murray Energy Corp.

They were announced in a short statement made public November 08, 2012 Thursday, two days after President Obama won re-election.

This is the mental limit level that lives in Utah

When small to medium businesses are just staying afloat due to the economy, and are now required to pay for medical coverage for their employees, they will not be able to stay open. There goes more unemployment. If they don't put coverage on their employees, they will be fined for each person employed. To must to bare. Then you have big businesses, they might employ some 600 to 1000 employees and have insurance coverage right now. It will be cheaper on them to drop their coverage for their employees, pay the fines to the government, and make their employees go on Obama care, which will not be near the coverage they currently have. Not to mention, doctors and medical treatment will be dictated by the government to what will be acceptable. Just a small example obama care.
Oddly enough I've been paying my employee's health insurance in full since a little after I opened in 1993. I'm doing fine and suffered minimally with the economic meltdown.

If he had been successfully impeached he would have been removed from office, the impeachment was a failure, he was acquitted. Yes he was impeached ( accused ) by the house and the impeachment was a failure as he was acquitted. Everyone so far in this forum comprehends that, except you.
I already know you donít know what most of the word in the previous sentence mean, you donít have to explain that you donít understand, we know that you donít.
Read the articles of impeachment levied against Clinton. It is clear that the House of Representatives indicated that he was guilty, by VOTE, of two out of the four articles of impeachment. IOW, the House found no merit on two and found merit on two. Subsequently, the articles of impeachment were presented to the Senate, which exonerated him of both charges. IOW the House found him guilty (read the text) and the Senate found him innocent. Both of these bodies' findings were by vote. What can be equated to a grand jury hearing took place prior to the House vote in the drafting of the original articles of impeachment.

No dear. I hate to agree with FaFoxy, but he is correct. The House votes on articles of impeachment. Clinton was impeached by the House. Impeached does not mean removed from office. It means to bring formal charges.
Mona formal charges were made ( which you can do without any evidence at all ) and the accused was acquitted, and so the trial ( or impeachment ) failed.

Im not commenting on guilt or innocence or how partisan the whole thing was from both sides, I am just trying to explain to those that do not know the process that an impeachment has to go through BOTH houses and pass to be successful.

That did not happen

I am curious about something.
In 2004 Bush declared his victory over Kerry was a mandate.
Popular vote of 62,040,610 (50.74%) w/286 electoral votes to a popular vote of 59,028,444 (48.27%) w/251 electoral votes

The MSM agreed and ran with the notion.

With Obama v Romney the tallies were:
Popular vote 61,212,366 (50.5%) w/332 electoral votes to a popular vote of 58,197,914 (48.0%) 206 electoral votes.

Those are almost identical results? Where is the cry of mandate? Not that I think either election was by any means though.

In an impeachment the house acts as the prosecutor, and the senate as the judge and jury, just because a prosecutor accuses someone does not make it a success.

If it has been a success, he would have been removed form office.

He was not

"Success" has nothimg to do with an impeachment. He WAS impeached. That is a FACT of history. The fact that EVERY SENATE DEMOCRAT voted "not guilty", shows you that they wouldn't have found him guilty of anything, even if he executed someone on teh steps of The White House on tv.

But he WAS impeached.

Also, since an impechment is similar to an indictment by a grand jury, IF a citizen is indicted by a grand jury, and then found not gulty at trial, that does NOT negate the fact that the person WAS indicted, and if he were ever asked under oather: "Have you ever been indicted for ANY crime ?" To be truthful and avoid a possible perjury charge, that person would have to anser "YES".

It DIDN'T "FAIL" ! He WAS IMPEACHED ! Ask an attorney or a law professor.

Impeachements do NOT "FAIL" or "SUCCEED". They occur or they don't occur. Clinton's impeachment DID occur. He WAS impeached. It's a fact of history.

It takes 2 houses to fulfill an impeachment, if the impeachment had been successful Clinton would have been removed from office, he was not because the impeachment brought against him in the house, failed in the senate, and died there.

Just as in any trial the accused is acquitted, the accused suffered no consequences

Speaking of porn, I'm a bit disappointed that Measure B passed.
My guess is filming will just move from the "San Pronando" Valley to what will soon be called "See me" Valley.
