    Stunning that libs haven't caught on to this. Obama's literally going to make poor people, poorer. Sadly, they won't figure it out they are working fewer hours, stressed trying to manage two jobs, and FORCED to pay for healthcare. Ironically, more will qualify for FREE government healthcare if they make too little money. They'll say, "hey Obama, I have some pretty awesome health insurance and no damn money."

    I wonder what in the hell 0bama was thinking that every company over 50 employees can just afford to pay for their employees health insurance. Most individual plans are $500+. That is a $25,000 PER MONTH hit to the bottom line for an employer, or $300,000 PER YEAR!!!!!. That is insane.

    Certainly economists advised him what amount of money it essentially takes out of circulation and the devastating effect that would have on the economy? Maybe that's why he was dead set on implementing his healthcare system?

    No, Obama would rather give his poor people free health-care than start all over again with a reasonable system of healthcare.

    Another way of describing what is going to happen is that there are going to be two levels of companies: the large and wealthy companies that are going to get even larger and wealthier and small sized ones. The middle sized companies, who were used in the past to keep the arrogance of the large companies in check, will effectively go away. You can't grow a big company from a small idea anymore. The original Home Depot guys come onto Squawk Box from time to time and they are in complete agreement that the rules today won't allow anyone to do it again.

    The liberal response to this will be to fan the flames of class envy. More of 0bama's divide and conquer.

    It is a move towards not having Employees responsible for insurance at all, it will lead to single payer, as it should

    Yes, people "should" lose their personal autonomy over their healthcare decisions, which is all single payer comes to -- your life as a de facto ward of the state.

    One of the founders of Home Depot is Bernie Marcus who lives in Atlanta.
    He is frequently quouted saying that him and his buddies could not build
    a successful company like Home Depot in today's business environment.

    I think you mean employers (not employees) here, hopefully.

    Trader Joe's isn't a very good example. They have over 2,000 employees with an annual profit of about 8.5 billion. This probably has more to do with business than with Obamacare. Health care for part time workers is incredibly generous to begin with, and what they plan on doing still puts them well ahead of it's competitors.

    Well, I think it is still a fair, valid term, even if the total fallacy of it is that the government only has money to pay with that it takes or invents.

    Actually single payer is where we're eventually going to end up. Private companies really shouldn't be in the business of health care or retirement plans. They should be in the business of what they do and nothing else.
