Employers would be required to offer health care to employees or pay a penalty — and all Americans would be guaranteed health insurance — under a draft bill circulated Friday by Sen. Edward M. Kennedy's health committee
The federal-state Medicaid program for the poor would be greatly expanded
The draft doesn't address how this will all be paid for

Also, if this passes it will kill small business.

Killing small business is the point, is it not? America is supposed to fall and this is just another piece of the puzzle.
Good going, you thugs!

Gee, when they face the facts of their inability to compete and provide a decent standard of living for themselves and their employees, they'll have to go out of business-
when I and my fellow workers aren't making them rich anymore-
they'll have to go out and get a job-
which if its at a business like theirs was, won't give them healthcare--
unless forced to by legislation.
Wonder if the ex-boss will want healthcare?
