Because it's a stupid fukcing argument that does nothing but confirm VTsmittys preconcieved notion of how Obamacare will work.
The 20 million cited is also a worst case scenario, not an absolute fact, but rather the highest number in various estimates. The same report says Obamacare may increase employer provided insurance by 3 million.
As mentioned in the same CBO report is...
Most of those who will "lose" insurance are low or lower middle class, So They will either get free insurance via medicaid, or will be eligible for subsidized insurance. Also out of those who "lose" their employer insurance, 3 million will voluntarily leave their employer provided insurance for cheaper rates in the exchanges.
People that work for small companties or Low
Level jobs in big companies are already paying $100 - $600 a month out of their own pocket, so whats the difference if they pay a similar amount via a state insurance exchange? If companies don't provide health insurance they have to increase their wages anyway to hire the best talent.
Maybe you guys should read the actual CBO reports?
Ahhh the old "CEO's getting paid while the hard working fold getting crapped on" argument. Usually only reserved for those special folk that haven't ever worked in their lives.
You really are a complete fucking idiot.
Got it all figured out do you??
You see that sign that says 'Rib Tips'??
We aren't Zimbabwe, inflation isn't that much from one year to the next. LOL.
I'm not starting a debate, but you do seem to actually know what you're talking about, unlike almost everyone else in here. Regardless of the nominal/real talking point, how do you feel about the level of gov't spending and its role in the economy at present?
How does he seem like he knows what he is talking about?
Still won't account for the increase. You are full of **** and just trying to minimize the fiscal irresponsibility going on in Washington.
The train wreck is already unfolding and you're still stuck on we have to pass this bill to see what's in it.
I'm glad you see people now paying their own way, shifted to supported by the state as progress.
Do you still believe in a govt multiplier?
Understandable. I disagree pretty strongly with your first two points, but the last one we at least agree on in principle. Since the national government insists on spending at such high levels, I believe Americans' lives would be improved a lot more if they focused on infrastructure and industry instead of droning brown people.
Alas, public choice theory. Can't hand someone the keys to the greatest machine in the history of mankind and expect them not to use it for themselves.
The civilian labor force participation rate was 63.3 percent in April, unchanged over the month but down from 63.6 percent in January. The employment-population ratio, 58.6 percent, was about unchanged over
the month and has shown little movement, on net, over the past year.
In April, the number of persons employed part time for economic reasons (sometimes referred to as involuntary part-time workers)
increased by 278,000 to 7.9 million, largely offsetting a decrease in March. These individuals were working part time because their hours had been cut back or because they were unable to find a full-time job.
In April, 2.3 million persons were marginally attached to the labor force, essentially unchanged from a year earlier. (The data are not seasonally adjusted.) These individuals were not in the labor force, wanted and were available for work, and had looked for a job sometime in the prior 12 months. They were not counted as unemployed because they had not searched for work in the 4 weeks preceding the survey.
