This was kind of amusing:
Let’s Put Some Real Faces on the Casualties of Obamacare
On Wednesday, the Wall Street Journal reported that the President and his Democratic allies in Congress intend to force small business with payrolls more than $250,000 per year to provide health insurance to their employees. Failure to do so would be punishable by a fine up to 8 percent of payroll. The article also noted that there are approximately one million businesses with between five and nine employees and average payrolls comfortably in the Democrats’ target range and that only about half of those provide health insurance.
Those are the raw numbers and they are bad enough. However, to drive home the real cost to real people, I decided to do some quick “back of the envelope” calculations to see just what kinds of businesses might have to start firing people if the President’s health care scheme becomes law.
I’m impressed that all of his real faces are people he… just made up. Also, we don’t want the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud.
