playing stupid. It is about preexisting conditions restricting your ability to change jobs based insurance coverage. The ACA requires people to take responsibility for maintaining insurance.

You can't defend Pelosi's stance because you know we're right, and now you resort to throwing insults. Typical liberal.

China's 2011 average salaries revealed
Updated: 2012-07-06 15:16
( chinadaily.com .cn)

Beijing tops the list of employees' salary with an average monthly pay of 4,672 yuan ($730) among the 23 provinces and cities that recently published the statistics, chinanews.com reported Friday.
Shanghai follows with an average monthly salary of 4,331 yuan and Gansu province is at the bottom of the list with a monthly average wage of 2,742 yuan, according to statistics published by local authorities.

The average annual salary of urban non-private employees reached 42,452 yuan in 2011, 14.3 percent more than the average salary of 37,147 yuan in 2010. The actual growth rate is 8.5 percent if inflation is deducted, according to National Bureau of Statistics.

But some people say their salary is not as high as the published statistics and that they are "dragging the average salary down".

The salary published is pre-tax and comprises of all kinds of income including bonuses, allowances and pay in kind.

Now who's playing dumb? We already established labor is cheap in China. The question was, why is it worth it to move a factory to China just for cheap labor?

Sure. They can pocket the difference here without the expense of moving a factory to the other side of the world.

No safety laws, no environmental laws, no unemployment, no workers comp and you get to pay little teens .30 cents an hour to work 16 hrs./day - 6 days per week. Whenever the big corps. can get the Americans to work for .25/hour I'm sure they'll be back.
P.S. Corporate profits in 2010 hit a historic record high along with CEO pay.

Shut up!
"Think of an economy where people could be an artist or a photographer, a writer without worrying about keeping their day job in order to have health insurance. Or that people could start a business and be entrepreneurial and take risks, but not be job-locked because a child has a child has asthma or diabetes or someone in the family is bipolar. You name it, any condition is job-locking. Think of a situation where we can be internationally competitive because we don't have this weight on us that other countries, that other businesses really don't have in other countries because they don't have this expense of health care which will all be reined in, those costs, under this bill.
We cannot afford the status quo. We will make this difference, and it will make a wonderful difference in the lives of our people, but also in the vitality of our economy. That's what we want people to talk about."
That's such a cop out.

My cousin's daughter is an actress on Broadway. She never needed to loaf around until she pursued her dream. She worked, did her thing during the weekends and evenings, found an opportunity and went for it. She had her own medical care from the places she worked at.

Let me translate what Piglosi said: "We the Democrats heavily rely on government dependents to stay or gain power. The more government dependents, the more likely Democrat voters. Now we found a way to make even more people dependent on the government; convince you to quit your job to chase a career you will likely fail at."

There. At least you people can now understand what the ultimate goal is for the Democrats.
