As an owner of a small business, I say you are full of sh*t just like most of the right whiners posting here. What a bunch of crybabies.
If you dumbasses had any education & experience, you would know the exchanges were built partially for the small business owner.
I can buy the exact same coverage I have now for 40% less.
I've been there. I have experienced what health insurance is for the small business owner.
You idiots evidently had no clue that businesses have ben fighting yearly increases of 8-10% a year for the past 10 or 15 years. Businesses have been charging employees more & cutting benefits all along.
How the f*ck did you people get so GD stupid.
Speaking of getting so GD stupid, why aren't small businesses trying to sign up? Why are so many unions excluded? Why are the real horrors of ObammyCare once again postponed until AFTER an election?

This is why, Ray, you pretend cancellations & premium increases never happened before. Obamacare"
1. I never said policies cancellations and premium increases never happened before. That's your first lie.

2. The rest of your post is your second lie - nothing more than bullshit cheer leading for Obama and his clusterf**k ACA. Saving money! LOL

3. The ONLY reason the ACA passed into law was due to Obama's repeated lies that we could keep our plans and doctors.

4. Look at the polls, fool. America doesn't trust the Liar in Chief any longer. The majority wants the ACA and your genius president to disappear.

No one will be able to afford dealing with small, local businesses as they scratch and scrape together a budget to pay for their doubled and tripled insurance premium costs.

WalMart is ecstatic, you leftist fool.

{Large employers cite Obamacare 'Cadillac' tax in reducing benefits
"For 75 million Americans who get their insurance through large companies, the Affordable Care Act is a mixed bag. Experts tell NBC News the new healthcare law is only slightly increasing premiums next year, but causing some companies with the most generous plans to reduce their employees’ benefits.
Cha-Ching!
"...they were pleased to see their $385 premium is only up by four dollars next year. However, they were shocked to discover that instead of covering the first dollar they spend with no deductible, the Baker’s plan now includes a $1,000 deductible and a $2,500 out of pocket maximum. They also will still have small co-pays for service"

Conservative media reacted with horror to the United States' new nuclear deal with Iran, comparing it—just a tad hyperbolically—to the Munich deal that appeased Hitler.

The United States' nuclear deal with Iran was announced Sunday. Per the agreement, the U.S. will ease some of its sanctions on Iran in exchange for Iran slowing down the development of its nuclear program.

The deal had conservative commentators freaking out, saying that Obama was the second coming of Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, who infamously let Hitler take parts of Czechoslovakia in a failed attempt to avoid war.

Of course, Hitler was slightly a cut above the Iranian regime when it came to genocidal mania, but many pundits seemed not to worry about that.

The Wall Street Journal's Bret Stephens had an entire column — entitled "Worse Than Munich" — comparing the Iran deal to Munich on Monday. Charles Krauthammer also called it "the worst deal since Munich,” while a column on FoxNews.com referred to the deal as "Obama’s Munich."

"It is catastrophic. It's worse than Munich because after Chamberlain sold the Czechs down the river to Hitler, although they suffered and many of them died, they weren't obliterated," David Horowitz told Newsmax TV.

Daniel Pipes of National Review Online wrote, "This wretched deal offers one of those rare occasions when comparison with Neville Chamberlain in Munich in 1938 is valid."

Ben Shapiro wrote on breitbart.com , "The easy comparison is to British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain's appeasement of Hitler in Munich in 1938, when he signed allowed Hitler to consolidate his gains in the Sudetenland on the bare promise of no further aggression in Europe."

Geneva Is Not “Worse Than Munich”

Bret Stephens reaches new depths of foolishness:

By contrast, the interim nuclear agreement signed in Geneva on Sunday by Iran and the six big powers has many of the flaws of Munich and Paris. But it has none of their redeeming or exculpating aspects.

It’s tempting to dismiss this as nonsense and leave it at that, but these sorts of arguments have a way of gaining traction if they aren’t answered. If we were to take these comparisons seriously, we would have to conclude that Stephens thinks that the interim nuclear deal will lead to something worse than the annexation of the Sudetenland or the fall of South Vietnam. I doubt that even Stephens believes such absurd things, but that is what he wrote. Not surprisingly, he has no evidence that would begin to back up such extraordinary claims. Is Iran laying claim to the territory of another state? Obviously not. Is it coming out of the negotiations with more than it had at the beginning? On the contrary, it has come out of the negotiations having given up more than it received. The truth is that Iran is being made to account for its behavior inside its own borders in considerable detail for the privilege of being granted access to a fraction of its own money. The U.S. and the other members of the P5+1 got as much in the deal as they could, and Iran received very little, but then that is what one would expect when the world’s most powerful countries are bargaining with one medium-sized regional power.

The notion that the U.S. has “betrayed” a “small country” in this deal is contemptible. Israel wasn’t a party to these negotiations, but if it had been it would have been on the side of several more powerful countries dictating terms to the weaker one. Israel remains far more powerful in military terms than Iran, and would remain so even if Iran had a few nuclear weapons. The idea that Israel’s security has ever been seriously threatened by Iran’s nuclear program is even harder to take seriously today than it was last week now that Iran’s nuclear program is set to be under even stricter international controls than it was before. If strong-arming a country’s regional rival into making concessions on a major issue is “betrayal,” more countries would like to be “betrayed” by the U.S. in such a fashion.

Sure why not__nothing else of interest going on here.

A dairy farm Republican. Fiscally conservative, socially liberal, with no particular use for unions, but a strong wanting for government subsidies in any form. Lutheran too, if anyone is interested, not Missouri Synod but old school with the chanting and such aka Catholic light. Basically a go along to get along sort with the exception of political reactionaries who I find really disgusting.

Not crazy about liars either__or Pakistanis.

Did you know that the US government officially recognizes about a quarter million Paki's residing in the US while the Pakistani Embassy claims six to seven hundred thousand living here? That's fkd up!

Businesses under 50 employees an sign up now. For those with fewer than ten employees,,the exchanges will likely save them money. If you knew anything about how insurance is sold to business, you would know the number of employees makes a huge difference.

Unions were allowed more time from the cadillac clause because labor contracts reach into the future.

Certain aspects of the ACA have been in effect for some time. The employer mandate was extended because businesses said they needed more time.

Why are you so uninformed about the ACA?

If that's true, the only difference is Reagan created an opportunity to free the hostages.
Obama missed a golden opportunity that was created for him.
Supposedly, he was on the phone with Iranian officials trying to get the release of the American just months before.
So it shouldn't have come as any surprise if he insisted this be part of the deal to lift sanctions.

I don't hate religion, just think you pretend Christians shouldn't constantly try to legislate your religion.

I am not a bigot & never have made a bigoted comment.

I did not post a quotation.

Just wanted to see how any of you right whiners are willing to throw the church under the bus because it agrees with the Democrat approach to government as not to keep handing money to the rich while cutting funding to the poor.

The Pope said you will rot in Hell for that. Come to think of it, so did Jesus.

Well, no, Lily. Conservatives are just following in the steps of JFK - lowering taxes and creating an economy so that all boats rise with the tides.
You liberals just want to keep throwing lifelines to the drowning so they will be attached to the ship. Doesn't matter if they get dragged along - at least they're not drowning and dependent of those lifelines.
You know I'm right whether you admit it or not. But it would shatter your world, I know.
