The ACA will benefit the Large Corporations; Small businesses will dieSubmitted by Ulfilas on Fri, 09/27/2013 - 10:03
Small businesses will be wiped out, as many that just breach the 50 employee threshold will be ham stringed on expanding. This reduces competition to the mega corporations who have lobbying power, large payrolls to absorb the ACA, and large tax breaks.
I stumbled on this article and though it is about homeless people, a sentence caught my eye:
"The ACA will prevent homelessness by making private insurance more affordable and preventing personal bankruptcies due to medical debt, and help end homelessness by expanding Medicaid so we can better stabilize health conditions, which is very exciting," according to Barbara DiPietro, Director of Policy...
... "There are homeless people who want to get back in the labor force, but need a knee or shoulder surgery to be able to work all day, " says Mollie Sullivan, Clinical Mental Health Counselor at Mercy Medical Center in Springfield, Massachusetts and the Chair of the National HCH Council's Clinicians' Network.
What is the goal of the ACA? To make healthcare affordable? To get more people working to pad our 'employment' numbers? To win that labor war with China? What if you don't want to be a part of that? Sure, being able to provide a job for your family is a great experience, but what if you don't want to participate in our corporate industrial society? Will you be hunted down?
Remember, the reasoning that is made public for any law is rarely the ultimate goal of that legislation.
