Response to SoCalDem (Original post)

Mon Mar 26, 2012, 09:30 AM

66. I've been saying this for years.

In fact, I'm proof of this. I was a small business owner until I got divorced. At that point I needed health insurance, so I went to work for a large organizations.

Large organizations know this. Our privatized health system - in which corporations have the buying power to negotiate better costs than individuals - keeps a large labor force eager to be employed.

If we had universal health care millions of Americans would happily go to work for themselves, and we'd see some wonderful Yankee ingenuity too - probably a lot of new energy solutions. Can't have that.
