Why don't they do what they've been doing for nearly 25 years, pass the bill onto their employees?

Of course, the article somehow doesn't get around to mentioning how much it would cost to comply with said regulation.

Because, you know, government regulations are always free.

MrEricSir: At some point the Republicans need to either come up with their own plan and explain how it's better, or stop whining.


It isn't about health care.

It isn't about fiscal responsibility.

It isn't about promoting a conservative agenda.

It is all about opposing anything liberals want, and anything Obama whether he is a liberal or not. If they can't defeat it they WILL whine about it and loudly complain about how liberals victimized them and took away "their" America. It is an emotional impetus impervious to any logic or reason. So no need for looking for it.

At least they are in the minority:

This will be funny because what will happen is the boot strappy tea party folks will figure out they are not getting this government handout I mean "getting their money back" and will start biatching.

Mark my words. To them it's not a "government hand out" when they get it only when others (usually with darker skin tones) get it.

It's a fine the business has to pay. I guess they could deduct it from the employees pay if they really want to.

"Ok we are not going to give you healthcare and for that we are getting fined, so we are going to take that fine out of your salary".

Well, the $3000 penalty is in the ACA, so that's Obama's fault.
 
2013-03-14 11:54:21 PM
Actual this Supreme court decision is biting the Republicans in the ass. I don't think the thought this through at all.

They have two choices:
A) Sign up for it and voluntarily sign up for "Obamacare" which they have been spending years telling everyone is the anti-christ.
B) Refuse it and not give many of your states voters free medical coverage that doesn't cost the state one cent.

Both make you look really bad.

The controversial provision allows more people to qualify for Medicaid,

Holy farking shiat I might get health care.  My family might get health care.  But wait, i'm in Texas.  So Texas will have to reject all of Medicare right?  Including the SSI Medicare that is keeping my 15 year old son from being a homicidal maniac?

Yea fark this place.

After seeing the story on Fark about Five Guys in the Raleigh-Durham area, I actually went out of my way not to eat there today.  When will these people realize that they can't afford to be pricks AND locate their eateries in locations that are far too distant from my place of work to make them convenient enough to stop by during lunch hour?  As a gay man, there's nothing more I'd like than to have five guys in my mouth whenever I feel like it, or to shove some of Papa Johns down my throat.  If these job creators would just recognize facts, they could be rolling in dough, but instead they want to do nothing but whine and screw over the poor folks.

Raising corporate taxes is useless because the costs are passed onto consumers.

Mandating healthcare coverage will put companies out of business due to costs.
Republicans believe both these assertions simultaneously.

Nonono. Medicare good, Medicaid bad. At least those are the words Republicans mouth to win votes. In reality, they hate both because the programs don't exist solely to shovel money to rich people.

Sorry if your state is gonna reject the expansion, but that's the price you pay for choosing to live among hordes of retards.

So 22 states refuse to participate in a program that will help millions of poor people, is almost fully funded by the federal government, and whose rejection will screw over thousands of business owners just so they can give the finger to the black president.

At least tell me my state is one of the sane ones.

FFS, all else aside, would people please stop confusing Medicaid and Medicare?

Medicaid= Healthcare for the poor
Medicare= Healthcare for the old

Old people vote in droves, and the GOP at least *tries* to hide their contempt for them... OTOH, the GOP hates the poor. All the poor, they're not that racist, they hate poor white people too... fortunately for them, the poor white people are too farking dumb to realize it in many states.

The fines to the companies for not covering their employees with health insurance is a pittance compared to what buying said insurance would cost.

One drop rule, even if you're only a little poor, you're a taker, not a maker, so the GOP thinks you should fark off and die already.

my idiot governor, bobby jindal, says he is opting out because at some undefined point in the future it will cost the sate money. and we don't have it. so for three years we get medicaid at 100% then the state has to pony up some. yeah i'd be against that too. if i were a mouth breathing knuckle dragging idiot. or think it will help in 2016. small hint, it won't.

oh and he is currently pushing for the abolition of personnel and corporate income tax. to be made up for by expanded sales taxes.

for a guy who got brought into government for being a policy and numbers wonk man has he messed up.

Watch what happens when businesses (fark paying the fines) and people (fark paying out the ass for coverage) start moving out of those states.

I'm sure some states are already trying to lure businesses.
 
2013-03-15 01:31:19 AM
Good. As the economy for those states tank, and businesses move to more profitable and healthcare-friendly states, perhaps that will get the morons in their state governments to rethink "ideology over pragmatism."
