    I'm wrong about this - companies with over 50 employees have to provide health insurance or pay a fine of $2000 per worker per year. That also changes my assertion regarding the public plan.

    The bill is worse than I thought, at least what I've seen of it.

    So, other than not knowing two of the primary tenets of the bill, I'm freaking dialed in.

    Flog, it's been nice trading messages with you and Ugly. I've just restarted to visit the board and found several of the threads interesting and informative. There is one person who posts whose name begins with "ac" who is very interesting.

    Anyway, I commend you on your patience and not allowing the thread to degrade into something adversarial. Take care. pm

    We are clearly movnig toward a more socialists system, but to say that we are moving towards communism and that it is restricting personal freedom is hyperbole.
