    the jobs killed by the profit-driven private health insurance industry.  When Horizon BCBS raises the rates of a small business 40% or more, that small business has a tough time holding onto existing jobs, much less creating new ones.

    They've never explained why, if Medicare for those of us ages 65+ needs to be preserved and protected, why Medicare for people ages 0-64 is tyrannical socialism.

      Whatever nonsense Republicans may spew about job killing health care policies, they are right for the wrong reasons. Adding 20% overhead to every employee you hire does slow down the job recovery.

      But then neither party has any interest in restoring living wage work in this country, no matter what tripe they feed us.

      That might slow down the growth of their stock portfolios.

      Foreign investment.
