healthcare reform was a bad idea
and offer a case study on why it will fail. Some of the top threats: Firing workers instead of hiring, stop providing health insurance altogether and pay the $2K penalty, or even going so far as to shutter their businesses.

I'm a Canadian. I like that my healthcare is not predicated on whether I have a job. I'm self employed at the moment and I can do this without fear of catastrophic health care costs if I get sick or have an accident.
My healthcare is as good as in the U.S. (I lived there for a year). My wait times have been low - I expect for big things like replacement hips I will have to wait about a year (but you can "book ahead" by knowing your hips are getting worse and pre planning things a bit). If I have a heart attack I'll get similar care as I would get in most plans in the U.S.
And no insurance company is going to decide that my health problem was a pre existing condition! That's the worst part of the U.S. system. Everything that is covered here, is covered for everyone.
