    You can't blame restaurateurs from wanting to focus on serving food and not devoting their time to health-care, life insurance and pensions.

     

    The best tonic for American business would be to start the trend towards employees buying their own insurance out of their earnings just as they do with auto insurance, homeowner's insurance and extended warrantees on TV's.

    Conservatives tell us that workers can't have both, jobs and health care. But they can have it all, record profits and 60 year lows in taxes.

    So more people will get their healthcare from the emergency rooms. Which the taxpayer pays for. That's socialized medicine by default. Let's just do single payer and get businesses out of healthcare. Oh Canada. All Obamacare does is force more people into the clutches of insurance companies where everyone can watch their premiums go up 30% a year.
