From a letter that ten Senators sent to President Bush regarding health care:
“Further delay is unacceptable as costs continue to skyrocket, our population ages, and chronic illness increases,” the letter from the senators said. “In addition, our businesses are at a severe disadvantage when their competitors in the global market get health care for ‘free.”‘
Health care isn’t “free”. Businesses in other nations pay for it via taxes.
Also, if we our businesses are at such a “severe disadvantage,” why is our economic growth so much better than the rest of the world?
