What does your answer have to do with Obama saying the cost for medication was too high and he would allow the importation of cheap generic drugs from
Canada, and then Obama making backroom deals with Big Pharm companies ensuring he would break his promise if they backed the ACA?
Instead, the drug industry will pay billions of dollars annually in new fees beginning in 2012, and brand-name drug makers will provide a 50 percent
discount on prescriptions filled through the Medicare Part D coverage gap beginning in 2011. Such concessions will undoubtedly aid American
consumers' pocketbooks -- perhaps even more than a new re-importation rule would have.
What does this have to do with the people who are only off the unemployment books because they quit looking for work, and are still not employed?
And just how many people is that? Oh that’s right its like Mitt Romney’s plan to save America, no one has the details so we will just pick a
number at a later date.
What does this have to do with the fact MOST of the jobs gained under Obama have been low wage part time jobs?
A US President does not determine the wages or benefits provided by private industry.
How about you do some research and tell me what group has benefited under Obama. I don't think I mentioned Darden Foods, nice deflection and
obfuscation. It won't work. Please answer my question, which had nothing to do with Darden Foods.
US Military; I’ve done pretty damned well and will have a nice fat retirement check in a few months. And yes, your statement does have something to
do with Darden Foods. They are part of the scumbags that are using Obama’s policies as an excuse to cut back workers hours (but you knew that
‘cause you’re a thinker!). To me, any excuse to cut back hours is BS. Companies are simply looking for ways to improve profits at the workers
ETA: How long does their waiver last for by the way? And why give a waiver at all unless it's an admission this is a hardship on businesses?
It supposed to end in 2014; I suspect that congress will approve an extension. It was originally meant to apply only to small busineses which
honestly might have had a hardship initially. No idea why it was expanded. Don't really care, doesn't affect me one way or the other.
