    It’s OK. Private health care is so inexpensive now since we did the tort reform, pretty much anybody can afford it.

          This is for our business too, so there are several families on there. (it’s a lot of money for us)

            Of course, that is a lot of money for ANY business to absorb as a percent of gross sales/profit/EBITDA.

            Way too much money for way too long, and in economic terms that is money y’all cannot re-invest in your company or people to grow the business.

            Medical expenses, even among those insured, is one of the leading reasons behind personal bankruptcy. Small business is the economic engine of America.

            We all suffer if small businesses follow the personal bankruptcy model (at the extreme) and are forced to close or significantly dis-invest due to exorbitant medical insurance cost.

            The effect is slow moving, and by the time it is fully measured, it will be too late for a legislative resolve.

            But wait, a BAIL OUT will work, yup, it sure will.

    I wonder who funded it when it opened. I don’t see anything about that on their website. I just have a strong hunch that it wasn’t taxpayers.

    • Chris says:

      Actully it probably was taxpayers. They probably funded it out of charitable contributions that are no longer available because the child-molesting mongoloids in Congress thought they knew how to distribute the money better.

    Yeah, I guess my wording was poor, but you got my point. Charitable causes used to provide for the needy what society expects the government to provide for them today.

    • benevolus says:

      So when times are tough, and more charitable resources are needed, charities can just collect more donations?

      • Joshua Morris says:

        Well, government certainly can–by force. And then we get to watch those funds get spent on worthy endeavors, like building office buildings, bailing out large corporations, paying $24k a piece for clunkers, and flying the President to Copenhagen to not-quite-secure an Olympic bid for his homies.

        I’m sure the poor really appreciate that.

        At least trustworthy charities spend their money on actually helping people.
