Let's be clear about something. This portion of the law really only impacts those companies that employ more than 50 people, and don't currently provide health benefits. Effectively, we're talking only about retail and food service businesses.
From the corporate point of view, I see their point - health insuranc...more
The problem with this debate is that legitimate calls for reform quickly get drowned out by people who simply want to prove a political point with their animosity and contempt for the poor.
I have no doubts that there is some abuse of the system, but most of the "solutions" people usually suggest would either cost...more
I think it's important to get some facts straight.
When corporations put money offshore, or take advantage of specialized tax loopholes, it may not be moral or ethical, but it is legal.
When people claim the EITC even though they don't qualify for it, it's neither moral, ethical, nor legal.

It's completely unrealistic to think that we can keep the system solv...more
These types of reports bother me because they may not take the entire picture into consideration.
For example, as much as everybody hates outsourcing and automation of industrial processes, the fact is these things do lead to much lower costs for the end consumer.
I'm not arguing that wages haven't remaine...more
I wish people would take some time to think about the issue rather than jumping straight to the pre-conceived opinions they have about "socialism" and "odumbocare".
Healthcare in America is a problem that doesn't have a simple cause or an easy solution. If you don't like Obamacare, fine, but please, for the good ...more
Judging by the responses, you would think that the ACA is the only thing an employer takes into consideration when making hiring/firing decisions, and that they can cut the hours of their workforce without any negative repurcussions on the company's performance, corporate morale, or the caliber of employee they're able...more
