After the election, the private sector has begun its struggle to cope with hefty health-care fees written into the Obama health law. For many businesses, the fines tip the cost-benefit balance against full-time employees. And employers — for their own sake, and for the sake of their remaining employees — have to cut back on employment, hours, or both. These painful cutbacks are the only way to ensure the long-term health of their businesses; it’s simple, if regrettable, math.
The problem is that Democrats don’t really like math, except when it comes to racial preferences; it harshes their mellow.
Funny how there’s all this agita about ‘corporate greed’ when the real problem would appear to be government greed — after all, you can boycott a corporation; try boycotting the government.
