    My wife and a couple friends are putting the scare into me but I seem to remember that you only need to supply employee's with health care if you have 50 or more..correct?

    There is so much garbage spilling out of politicians mouths recently that its hard to focus on what is actually happening. What it boils down to is socialized healthcare. The government wants to make healthcare more accessible to the lower income people, and in doing so it will take away from the higher income people. The last time I checked, 100% of my clients would be classified in the higher income It might not directly affect you, but it will when clients cant afford to hire a person to cut their lawn.

    I have NO idea what to think.

    I have had people explain some really good points about this.

    But the thing that really gets to me is that the IRS will fine you if you do not have health care. WTF? So living is a privilege like driving is?? If you drive without a license or a registration you can be fined. Ok, I agree with that.

    But if you exist and do not have health insurance the IRS can and WILL fine you?? That does not seem right.

  10. Social security, post office, Medicare, all government run and broke, and they want to start another one.
