The Jury Talks Back

My favorite item from the PotUS’s proposal

The very last bullet-point on the page:

Requires large employers to cover their employees and individuals who can afford it to buy insurance so everyone shares in the responsibility of reform. Under the President’s plan, large businesses – those with more than 50 workers – will be required to offer their workers coverage or pay a fee to help cover the cost of making coverage affordable in the exchange. This will ensure that workers in firms not offering coverage will have affordable coverage options for themselves and their families.  Individuals who can afford it will have a responsibility to purchase coverage – but there will be a “hardship exemption” for those who cannot.

Might I say, with all due respect, “Fuck you, Mr President”.

To start with, 50 employees is nothing.  It certainly is not what I would call “the starting of large”.  One restaurant could easily top 50 employees.

More importantly, if the government thinks it will be forcing me to buy health insurance, the government can go fuck right off and die.

I look forward to them trying to enforce their will in this matter.
