The "San Francisco Health Care Tax" also known as the "Healthy San Francisco Program" has nothing to do with ObamaCare. San Francisco City passed its own health care law in 2007, two and half years prior to ObamaCare, which mandates that all employers located inside the city with 20 to 99 employees spend no less than $1.17 per hour, per employee, for health care benefits. Employers with more than 99 employees must spend no less than $1.75 per hour, per employee for health care benefits."
-Spent 4 days in napa and 3 in San Fran on April 1-8. Another statement you made that is not true. Also, what you are missing is that business is down due to increase in taxes (sales tax and health tax) and the increase in prices to cover the additional costs. Now I'm not talking about a corporation with 100 employees. It's a dang restaurant. I didn't day it was obamacare, I were trying to make a comparison to what will eventually happen across the US. Higher costs + higher taxes+ less people unemployed= less sales and less employees
Al wrote,"First of all, anyone who currently has health care coverage has not a thing to concern themselves with. Whether it is employer sponsored or paid for out of your own funds, you are in full compliance."
17% of the US is without health ins.... Hold that thought!
Al wrote,"When you file your tax return, there will be an added line or two where you will claim the amount of health care premiums you have paid for the applicable tax year. Any amount of premiums paid by your employer for health care coverage will be listed on your W-2 and automatically reported to the IRS."
True. But what you aren't thinking of is that no matter how cheap you make health insurance or how affordable you make it for people who don't have it the cost of health care is still the same. Who is gonna pick up that tap?
Al wrote,"Look...bantering back and forth about what may or may not happen with employer sponsored insurance coverage is quite pointless today."
Yep, that's about par for the course. Typical lib, eat a cheeseburger today, worry about losing weight tomorrow.
Al wrote,"And as I have stated several times, there are Chicken Littles all over the place, flapping their wings and reacting prematurely to predictions that the sky is falling as a result of ObamaCare."
I've seen obamacare first hand... I bought a sandwich, chips, and a soda water at a deli in San Fran 1 month ago. My bill said $12 for turkey sand, 2.50 for Doritos, $3 for soda, tax 1.20 tax, tip $3, and then it said $2 San Fran health tax. I spoke to the owner about it. He said affordable healthcare was implemented in 2009 and the city has to charge the fee to help pay for everyone's healthcare and he had to lay off 8 workers to help cover his costs of payi g half of an employees ins. Google San Fran health tax and see it for yourself.
Al wrote,"Yes...the President should have been more clear, but then, you'd think that people could figure that one out for themselves."
Another excuse for Obama. Even when he lies guess we will just figure it out, huh!?

Sorry, I was busy contributing to society by working and paying taxes. That's a lot more than most of the lobs on here can say. Especially the waist of space who drew this cartoon. Al, I post so sparsely BC of what nooga said.... Never argue with an idiot.
Sorry, I have been busy working all day to chime in. And dégagé, Chet is special needs. Aprova thinks he owns a business,? But he has time everyday to camp on libtard cartoons hoping somebody will listen to his opinions as if they were truth. Let see al, posts at 839am, 910, 934, 958, 10:07, 10:21, 10:28, 225, 415, 430, 856, 8:58.... What kind of business you run? Meth house?
And the knows people's posts in January.... People's identities.... And posts every three minutes. No wonder he has financial troubles. Who can run a business spending every moment of his life trying to be heard in a political online forum.
Alprova said "Hillary's not from Chicago, you pathological lying moron, and you need to learn to be more respectful, for she is going to be this nation's next President."
That guy is so sure about everything he says isn't he?
"People who have always hated Obama and Hilary will always hate Obama and Hilary... They will never see the truth"
Really? Sounds like you are the one drinking the Koolaid
Ha, aprova has a business?!.... If he spent half his time in his business at he does sputtering ignorant responses in endless paragraphs about mindless cartoons all day long that a 3 year old could draw.... Then he'd be a thousandaire
It's always somebody else's fault when you're talking about Biden, Clinton, or Obama.... Or it doesn't matter cause some other president was worse
Survival of the fittest.... People never see the millions of decisions made everyday by the guy on the bench. This is the life he has chosen by those daily decisions. He has made his bed. He is entitled to nothing more.
This clown still drawing cartoons?
