The medical industry with all the side jobs it creates is the biggest employer in the USA. Not the government.
Health insurance was getting so expensive that even large employers wouldn't have been able to supply it much longer. As people were dropping off
the coverage the medical rates would have had to increase or the medical industry would have had layoffs. Deductibles would go up for everyone and
employers would choose subcontracting in place of employment with benefits for most of their workforce. That is starting to happen already. everyone
would soon have lost health insurance benefits. Our healthcare system was going to crumble. A recession is not the time to try to balance the
budget, it is the time to create jobs and protect jobs. Spending during the Bush administration was wasted spending, the government was trying to
promote businesses by giving businesses contracts and creating a lot of unnecessary paperwork for inspectors. The cost of stimulating the business
economy with federal money when it wasn't really needed caused this recession to be much worse. We should not have been giving so much money to the
businesses then, we would have it now and would have less debt. This problem we have can't be blamed on either party, they both overspent, but in
different ways. Repealing Obamacare will destroy our economy.
