    Won't be a problem. They're most likely still working out the contractual plan to retract the federally contracted janitorial staff from the building.

    I like the idea of every having health insurance but I wonder how they are going to pay for it when they are required to buy it....
    I think it should have been all about jobs first and then health care. That way people could afford it.
    I don't understand the government. They keep saying how the insurance business is corrupt but now they are making people buy insurance from them.... Passed a law and everything... I don't understand them, do you?

    If I had the book of swear words in front of me I would list every single one if this forum allowed it. That is how I felt when I heard it passed.

    I'm not happy about it at all.

    The government can't correctly manage any of the existing entitlement programs, many of which are bankrupt or about to be bankrupt, so why the heck would I be happy about them bankrupting our health care system?

    Waste of time and money, but the thing is that while yes this past it is going to be tied up in litigation for years to come. Forcing some one to buy it???.......We'll see how that plays out.......:wow:

    I am torn...

    If you think health care is a privilege then you should be ok with the 40 million tax payers that dont have health care coverage because they dont work for a company that provides benefit coverage. Sorry folks but you should have gotten a better job. The strong survive and the weak dont. I can understand that to a point.

    Now if you think health care is a right that all Americans should be afforded regardless of income then a right should be protected and supported and enforced by the government just like our constitutional rights are.

    Sadly we already live in a quasi-socialistic society. We arent headed there...we have been there for years with the "haves" paying for the "have nots". My taxes pay for public education, police, fire, ambulance, roads, street lights ect ect that poor people and even unemployed people who dont even pay taxes all use.

    It sucks but nowadays even my vote doesnt matter. Prepare for tough times or fall to the way side. Luck favors the prepared my friends.
