Who didn't see this coming?

Ok, so I'm going to go off on a bit of a rant here...

Is this really a suprise to anyone?

It appears Congress recently subpoenaed records from four big US employers: AT&T, Verizon, Caterpillar and Deere. In the process they discovered all four are seriously considering DROPPING their employee health care plans completely. :ack: It's simply cheaper for them to push the employees onto the goverment system and pay the $2,000 per employee fine for not providing health insurance. So what's the result? A federal defict trillions of dollars larger than expected and millions more people recieving what I believe will be a sub-par government sponsored health care.

What a mess. :leaving:
Someday I'll finally be able to drive my Vette, but for now I'll just admire all the pieces... :willy:
