On the one hand government wants to take control of health insurance from insurance companies allowing government bureaucracies to call the shots. Then on the other they are wanting to give public pension plans to insurance companies because the government can't run them without creating unsustainable long term obligations.

Naturally, federal government employees would be exempt from the plan.

This is a small business owners problem. Our business is booming but when it's time to pay workers comp, auto insurance, business insurance and health insurance, all our profits are gone.

Thanks Insurance lobby. You really know how to keep American stagnant.

The size of America's waste bands has expanded so much that doctors predict the next epidemic in America will be Diabetes, Juvenile Diabetes, Heart Disease and Cancer which have all been linked to our poor eating habits.

Oh, wait, that's happening NOW, not in the future and it is bankrupting us now as those of us with insurance pay for the medical care of Americans who don't have insurance which in turn leaves no savings for those of us working our asses off. Instead of saving, all our money goes to insurance premiums and workmans compensation.

We have new hospitals posting surgery procedure rates on line. You can go to hospital A and get a breast biopsy for 16,000 dollars or you can go to Hospital B and get it for 6000 dollars. This is really catching on and of course the hospitals that gouge aren't happy, but the insurance is.

Look where the pro-corporate Reagan- Bush policies got us and the world into.

Same policies that gave us the 1929 depression.

Teabaggers still think Reaganomics and letting corporations "self regulate" works.

WTF???

Corporations may be businesses, but not all businesses are corporations. Get it? Odumbo's anti-business policies are hurting the small non corporate businesses more than the huge corporations. I am assuming that xoxoxox has a small business not a mega corporation.

Not kidding. Tax increases, forced health insurance mandate, increased rules and regs on US manufacturers. Policies enacted under his administration. So, yes, Obama! If the business climate is soooo favorable under him, why the persistent high unemployment rate????

It wasn't "small" businesses that gave us depressions and recessions.

It was bankers, corporations, the politicians they bought and the laws they wrote.
