Are you, or are you not a Free Market Conservative?
never said it was a mandate. But it is reality. And obammy knew it would happen. And obammy lied about it.

I don't understand how an employer contributing to a healthcare plan as part of compensation is not pulling your own weight. That's a weak and silly argument.
You not understanding is an intenal flaw. We've figured that out already, you would argue against water being wet.

That's just your conditioning is all.

<quoted text>Repeating lies about Health Care is not learning about it.....

Employers stand to benefit from the new law, those that have gone over the legislation with their legal representation know the benefits and how to profit from the legislation.
I haven't lied about. Point out the lie.

Obammy has lied about it. And I have been very clear in pointing them out.

<quoted text>The Tax Credits are the subsidy, but the Federal Government is subsidizing low income families, those earning below $49,957 a year with Earned Income Tax Credits.

And also subsidizing Families with Children with similar low earnings, for having Children they simply can not afford.

Half of the Working Population in Kentucky has their salaries subsidized and subsidized further for having Crumb Snatchers they can't afford.

How is that fair to those of us who are not subsidized?
it isn't. Thanks for arguing my point for me.

<quoted text>You aren't forced to drop insurance, but if you are looking to increase revenue from your production activities it's advisable to drop Employees Health Care and reduce those expenses.

That's a simple Free Market Decision. If they don't like it they are free to find another place of employment. Most employer are in business to earn a profit. You may think that's idiotic, but I can assure you business operating for the purpose of maximization of profits do not.
I think it is idiotic to take a huge expense that is now being paid by business and shifting it to the gov. Yes I do find that idiotic.

Yes business will be forced to. When the cost is to great it will force the business to drop the coverage. That is why obammy has been handing out so many waivers.

Beginning tax year 2010, small-business and even domestic employers can receive a 35 percent income tax credit based on premiums paid to cover employees under the Small Business Health Care Tax Credit.

If you actually were an employer, you would know that you are NOW subject to a Tax Credit for providing health Care Insurance to your Employees.

Seems you where lying or you don't file taxes, which is it? Stop. You were lying!

How in the hell can you pretend to have employees and not know the benefits of paying a portion of their insurance cost?

ROFLMAO.......

That position makes too much sense to be any part of republican policy.
