    American businesses are sucky and reprehensible under my guidelines because so many employers play the benefits dodging game. We saddled American business with being responsible as the gateway to healthcare, which we in our collective madness said should be employer based.

    I don't understand why businesses aren't collectively jumping up and down with glee that Obamacare has finally removed at least some of that burden off their backs.

    What Obamacare may do is liberate vast swathes of the workforce who are literally chained to jobs they loathe and employers they despise simply in order to hang onto their healthcare.

    ALL employers may face a more discerning workforce looking for more than peanut wages and jerry mandered schedules - perhaps this is the real reason some employers dislike Obamacare.

      When they found they needed to attract and keep better employees. I hope they figure out they still need to do that.

      Corporations are NOT our friends. International Corporations are not "American". They are happy to move jobs to countries that do not require safety and benefits for employees.

      The Democrats create jobs. The Republicans create recessions.
