  •  It's not entirely stupid (8+ / 0-)

    The Republicans are right ... once 20M+ Americans start getting subsidies for their health insurance socialized medicine of some sort is inevitable and the GOP will lose big.

    Economics is a social *science*. Can we base future economic decisions on math?

      The base doesn't trust him.  Hating on Obamacare is a good way to prove that he's one of them...

      Except that he's not. He has that ethnic name and speaks that foreign language, and he seems to like people who do as well.

      But other than that, Go Marco! You gotta dive deep into the extremist pool if you want to get the nomination.

      But ¡Cuídate! You may bump your head on the bottom when you realize the waters are very shallow and end up with serious daños  from which you can't recover for the general.

      Ah, the risks of pandering...

      Now that I understand that only employers who have fifty or more full time workers need to provide health insurance, it seems we need to have safeguards in place to prevent companies from downsizing or declaring that all the employees must work part time to get around the requirement. Don't Walmart,target, etc already do that?

      But again...if the public is subsidizing everyone (except business owners) because everyone's only working part time, then the logical step is make that law, right?

      Also : we need to have our immigrants qualify for it too.

      Union busting???? That's disgusting!!!
