re: Here should be the GOP's strategy on health care: - Eurocat
Competition across state lines is a terrible idea. http://voices.washingtonpost.com/ezra- klein/2010/02/selling_insurance_across_state.html -------------- The big Republican idea to bring down health-care costs is to "let families and businesses buy health insurance across state lines." J...

re: Number of low wage jobs fall 6.8%, hours worked fall 9% in seattle after min wage increase - Eurocat
Shorty, my bad. I just made an off the cuff assumption that a ton of Americans lived in the top 20 cities. Actually it's only around 10 percent or so, so the number should be one million not one hundred thousand. I made a good faith guess and guessed wrong. I would appreciate you knocking off the...

re: Number of low wage jobs fall 6.8%, hours worked fall 9% in seattle after min wage increase - Eurocat
Since prices only comprise a small part of the total cost of a product, prices would not rise at the same level that the minimum wage would rise. In some very competitive inducstries, where price is a huge deal for consumers, prices may not rise at all....

re: Did the Supreme Court leave itself open to litigation? - Eurocat
I'm going to be kind and presume that the OP meant to say "Didn't the SCOTUS know that with this ruling being so unclear, it is just going to invite more and more lawsuits and drag this thing on for years"? At least I hope that is what he meant. I said I was being kind....

re: Yahoo: GOP donors are cutting GOP off until Trump's agenda gets done - Eurocat
In my opinion these people are basically admitting they commit bribery. By law donations are not supposed to be linked to specific legislative actions. This won't stop until we have public financing of campaigns. ...

re: Number of low wage jobs fall 6.8%, hours worked fall 9% in seattle after min wage increase - Eurocat
In all of America if we can get a higher minimum wage with only 100,000 jobs lost in a country of 320,000,000....effin yeah that is a good deal. It's not worth having a job, if a job is not worth having. And at too low of a wage, it's not worth having....

re: Opiod addicts will not be covered under TrumpCare - Eurocat
You do know that quitting alcohol cold turkey if you have been a heavy drinker for a while is extremely dangerous, yes? I don't mean a person who had a three day binge at a LSU tailgate, I mean a serious drinker. It's virtually the EXACT same thing with opiods. https://www.clarityway.com/bl...

re: Number of low wage jobs fall 6.8%, hours worked fall 9% in seattle after min wage increase - Eurocat
When you read it slowly, you see that it is not that big of a deal. One of the biggest cities in the country dramatically raised wages and the result was a job loss of 5,000. A drop in the bucket for a city of that size. I'd take that deal if I was Seattle. ...

re: Opiod addicts will not be covered under TrumpCare - Eurocat
Telling an opiod addict to "be a man and just stop taking it" is about as effective as telling someone with diareah "be a man and hold it in, come on, don't be a wuss". It requires medical treatment and is not just a question of willpower. ...

re: 1.4 million illegals working under stolen Social Security numbers: Audit -Washington Times - Eurocat
This might be a dumb question, but it seems to make sense (as a question) to me. If I am an American, wouldn't I want someone paying social security taxes into my social security account? Doesn't that mean the illegal loses money and I will get a bigger social security check at age 67 because ...
