Wouldn't it be funny through, if it worked to decrease poverty instead of increasing it because when your employer is doing well then you are too - right? And a job is supposed to be a ticket out of poverty - right? Wouldn't it just be a riot if workers could "afford" to get sick now and businesses simply shrugged and passed the cost on to the consumer. I mean, how funny would that be... ;-) America needs a raise. Thank you voters for giving the least amongst you a fair shake.
