That's the decision of the Legislators in Indiana not to improve their employees health care packages...... They don't think enough of their middle class wage earners.
If they are that interest in cheap labor, why not recruit at the State's Parole office for new employees who would just be happy to have a job.
No it is not decision of the Legislators in Indiana it is called Tax Payers and if you think people who's jobs are strictly dependent on tax dollars as the middle class you got alot to learn especially about Business & Economics and how wealth is created.

That's the problem, they did.

What are they supposed to do with millions of bad loans? But the better question is, where did the bad loans come from and why?

The bad loans came from banks that were able to make the loans and sell them off to the secondary market. They were pressured to lower their standards in the attempt to have more minorities in houses. It went to the point of virtually no credit check or history. They were making these loans to just about anybody.

I'm a landlord and will never forget that time. I lost two great tenants with 0% down which was created during the Clinton administration. Both got loans with no money down and both were overextended on their credit. One of those tenants didn't even own their own television set. They were renting it.

You can talk about the Glass-Steagall act (signed by President Bill Clinton) all you want, but the truth is you can't pawn off bad securities unless you have those bad securities to begin with. When you're looking to solve a problem, you don't go to the end of the problem or even the middle, you solve a problem by going to it's beginning.

That's right, there was no bill. It died in committee due to Dodd's filibuster threats.

An interesting article by Karl Rove. You may not care for him and neither do I, but interesting none the less.

There are plenty of ideas all of which are superior to ObamaCare.
The first step to reform is to control costs. You can't do that by asking politicians what's wrong, you ask professionals like those in the medical field and healthcare insurance companies. After you bring down costs, then you figure out how to pay for it.
Step one is pre-tax contributions for a mandatory Health Savings account. It can be a small deduction like 1% of gorss for those under let's say the age of 30, and then perhaps increase slightly by one percent every fifteen years or so.
Many healthcare providers will give you a discount when paying cash for your services. This is because it avoids all that paperwork and waiting time for payment. Currently when you see your physician and he charges you $80.00, the facility or administration has to fill out all this paperwork and send it to your insurance provider. It goes back and forth until payment is received. With a Health Savings account, all you would do is swipe your card like at ATM machine. You must use your HSA first before bringing the insurance company in.
Next is National Tort Reform. While successful medical lawsuits are few, it still costs healthcare workers and facilities a lot of money for malpractice insurance for those that try to sue. It worked out great in Texas. For a while there, medical personnel was growing at a faster rate than their population.
Next is to provide full payment for government patients. For many years, doctors and facilities were getting ripped off with Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements. In order to recoup that loss, they increased the price of their services so they could get that loss back from private insurance companies. That would require a higher deduction for people working, but it would ease the stress on our insurance companies so we non-senior citizens could enjoy good healthcare too.
Nationwide competition. Some states only allow certain insurance companies to sell insurance in their state. This restricts competition thus increasing prices. It should be eliminated so that all insurance companies compete on a national level.
These are just a few ideas that would lower our healthcare costs, and some of them wouldn't require one dime of taxpayer or private money.
Your post makes allot of sense, unfortunately the Obama people will never allow this.

Obama care is all about control, it has very little to do with healthcare, it appears it was designed to fail, It's just failing a lot sooner than they expected it to, and they fear the political fallout when the people find out they've been goofed over.

Yes, Obama and the other communist/socialist know that they have to win both houses to continue the death spiral of the American economy and make America the new nanny state that will then have zero power for protection, and our way of life.

My feelings are very similar. I think Obama is trying to find legal cover for a gun grab. Of course it will only work where the states that liberals control, and those people are already defenseless because of who represents them.

I also thin Iran just showed Obama the real nuclear option and he as usual folded and gave them six months to finish making a bomb.

Liberal controlled states are the most dangerous states to live in. I've noticed most of the so called " Knockout Games " are happening there also.

That's because in the states where we can protect ourselves from this very thing they would get their punkass' shot if they took at swing and tried knocking out a vet here! They would get what they deserved. Notice they do it by sneak attacks. There some real pussies for you!
