It was a Republican initiative. That's what it was.

Many businesses in America, large, medium and small, are operating on shoestring budgets. As Obamacare began to kick in, hundreds of businesses began laying off staff to offset the increased costs they face under Obamacare. Consequently, thousands of people have lost their jobs, thanks to Obama and his Affordable Care Act.
Hundreds of other businesses, especially many small businesses have had to drop health benefits for their employees as they can no longer afford the higher premiums. Consequently, thousands of Americans who still have jobs have lost their employer provided healthcare plans. The vast majority of these employees cannot afford to purchase their own health insurance because the Affordable Care Act has driven prices beyond what is affordable. Consequently, thousands of Americans are finding themselves uninsured.
Then there are all of the tax increases that took effect this year that are also hitting business owners hard. If a business owner makes $250,000 or more a year, they are facing combined tax increases of 6%-10%.
So you have business owners paying more for employee health coverage and more in taxes. However, their revenue intake is not increasing, which means this all comes off their already thin profit margin.
#1. You've named no business's, no dates, no employee lay off numbers.Last time I looked, business created over 500,000 jobs in the last 3 months alone. Guess they didn't get your memo. Heres a number; American business is sitting on around 2 trillion dollars; they've never been in better shape. Also, why do you think business has to supply your medical care? You should buy it on the open market like everything else in life.

You have no argument, just a double standard in the blame game.

Yet unemployment has risen while your 500,000 jobs were "created". The number of food stamp recepients has risen. The number of disability claims has risen.

Where and how can the millions of unemployed Americans buy, or even begin to afford to buy health insurance on the open market?
