Response to earthside (Reply #3)

6. I agree with you

But from DU discussions at the time, we were in the distinct minority here. So I don't think passing single-payer was a politically viable option.

Our politicians are not dictators - they do respond to the will of the people.

I do think this is going to be a real problem this year and into the next. The lookback period for figuring out which employees would cause a fine starts now - it can be less than 12 months, but it is very advantageous for some businesses to use the 12 month period - so a bunch of workers are going to be hit with less hours this year, combined with the 2% payroll tax increase.

Don't look for food stamp usage and Medicaid costs to go down! This will cost us all in unforeseen ways.
