Poor logic on your part, that's not the pointI continued discussing the point that YOU raised. If that wasn't the point, why did you mention it? Poor logic on your part.He's obviously going to be forced to pay for healthcare for thousands of employees, to offset this new cost he will have to cut employees. He's unlikely to cut staff. His profit margins are plenty high enough to cover healthcare for his people without bankrupting him (or even coming close). If he's such a tightwad that he's unwilling to absorb that expense, then he's a tightwad enough to have already cut his staff to the fewest necessary to maintain the quality he wants and he can't cut further.He might reduce their hours so he doesn't have to pay benefits. I believe the famous capitalist talking point is that people who don't like the terms their employer offers should find another employer (as if there are lots of jobs available everywhere). Hopefully you're right. If he cuts everyone down below benefit-requiring hours, I hope they all find new jobs. Free Market Capitalism can work both ways.
