Yes, you’re correct it has always been expensive. It’s about to become more expensive for employers due to Obamacare.

The number one cause of the Kodak bankruptcy can be directly traced to digital media. Kodak failed to keep in step with market demands. Portions of Kodak will survive, the chemical, optics and medical divisions will continue to thrive.
now that was civil so I will talk...

Kodak business was chem/paper , but that is no longer the case...

President Carter put Kodak in a hole with his right of disclosure of trade research ... Kodak spent 7 million one year and was forced to turn over it findings to its competitors ...

people began to buy cheap... kodak lens were precision glass while others were using plastic ..

the world moved from a black /white to color takes more to
develop b/w than color...

there are a few more reasons but you do have a valid point

Greedy doctors. Interesting notion. A very good friend of mine is a doctor. Trying to collect from insurance companies requires a staff. Insurance companies limit what they’ll pay for procedures. They’ll deny reasonable claims. Add to that incredibly expensive malpractice insurance.
The three major reasons for excessive cost are pharmaceutical companies, insurance companies and litigation.

You might want to review what business publications say about the costs of Obamacare. You might also want to review the unintended consequences of the legislation. This is just one example of the unintended consequences. Employers are expected to hire fewer full time workers in favor of part time to avoid the costs of health care. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/09/dard... Darden is not the only business planning to use the part time strategy. Walmart may follow http://www.forbes.com/sites/rickungar/2012/12...
The way Obamacare is written it’ll impose a heavy burden on many businesses and families.
$500 per month seems very conservative based on what I’ve read related to cost to business. You of course assume the source must be Fox News. Yes, Fox occasionally distorts facts, all news outlets do. Want worse? Look at MSNBC.
LOL! You might want to leave Walmart out of any 'discussion' about the 'evils' of the Affordable Care Act. Walmart- our nation's largest employer, was on on the vanguard of opting out of healthcare as for decades before ACA was in effect, they shortened already underpaid workers hours and relied on medicaid and welfare and the American taxpayers to take care of their employees.

Ya know, these companies are no longer doing this to deny Obama a second term. The people spoke and they gave him that. These companies are doing it just because they are greedy awholes.

You can’t discuss this subject with liberals. They don’t know the real costs of anything. Health care is very expensive. They assume it should be free.
Healthcare is VERY expensive, and that same kind of cost is what we are now saddled with on a national level. And keep in mind that the government is not noted for its efficiency, so it's reasonable to assume that those costs won't go down.......

I understand your frustration.

My sympathy goes out to the millions of people who will lose hours at work because their company doesn't want to pay out for their benefits, hell most can't even afford them anyway. Now they have no choice. Plus add that to the extra money that was snagged out of our paychecks .... it's hurting a lot of people.
It's not so much about Obama wanting to make sure people have health care, it's about how much it's killing the average joe. If you are going to enforce these things on the common worker, make sure that it's a well rounded plan before you start gouging people who are living paycheck to paycheck.

Things may seem great on paper, but so far it sucks.

So leave it in place to make things even more expensive? That makes sense, in Democratland I guess.

Romney didn't want to appeal it (even though he said he did)? No wonder he didn't get elected.

Considering he was caught masturbating to an Obama speech on national TV, I think the whole world knows it.

I do understand the jealously caused by your wanting to be Obama's only lap dog though. I'd feel sorry for you if it weren't so funny.
