    Caterpillar, IL largest manufacturer employer, announced this bill will cost it $100 million. This will equate to heads rolling, or glup, another large US manufacturer going overseas!

    I can't believe Caterpillar is the only one being hit by this. Many other like Corporation will also be hit hard.

    The last thing we needed is a hit to the private sector, yet that is what we just got!

    one would have to actually believe that.

    I don't. I think it's boy crying wolf. Job killa is companies sending jobs out of the country to pay people sub-standard wages.

    every other civilized nation makes sure their people have health care.

    So catipillar is upset because our government, or our tax dollars, will no longer subsidize Catipillar's expense for prescriptions that they give their retirees as a perk?

    Am I reading this right?

    It doesn't say 'will', the article says 'could'.... that's not a 'yes', it's a 'maybe'.

    Having said that, IF it does, that is very very bad.

    *Sits back and waits for a liberal to say how great it is that we now have the healthcare to take care of the unemployed that the bill created.* :eusa_eh:

    Really, you think a tax and requirement bill will not hit businesses? Even if they inflate the numbers, one still must believe they are going to get hit HARD!
