    Aslo, the itemized deduction for medical increased from 7.5% to 10%. For someone making 100K, that's a $2500 increase. Obama is an a$$.

    Only 52% of Americans work for small businesses. It's not enough for Obama to worry about.

    Besides, he held the economy hostage when he was trying to pass Obamacare, so why shouldn't he continue to hold the economy hostage until he gets ACA right? You had to pass it to find out what's in it, and then you had to live through it to find out why you don't like it.

    For Obama to show concern, one must be part of the 1.5% who are gay. And then only if they don't cough up political contributions.

    It's feeling like 1978 again both at home and abroad.

    We limit all of our part time workers to less than 30 hours resulting in the majority of them losing hours and income (if they work more than 30 hours we are required to give them benefits under ACA and we pay the full premium of health insurance for our full-time workers). This has become standard practice in our industry since we rely on part-time employees for a lot of non-professional roles.

    My parents told me to study hard and I could be anything I wanted to be. What do we tell our kids now, don't bother being a vet or a doctor or a lawyer, you'll never be able to afford the health insurance!

    Local governments, in my area anyway, are doing the same thing.
