Tortoise Wins by a Hair!

Tortoise Wins by a Hair!

Here’s my cartoon on the historic healthcare reform vote which occurred a few days ago. This was among my more positive ideas for commentary on the subject.

Some readers may recognize the title as a reference to this classic Bob Clampett cartoon.

Also, I want to thank everybody who donated money to me recently, since I brought it up in the previous post. Pretty sure this means I’ll be able to pay my rent next month!

Well, your forgot to add in the people that will be hit with government mandated penalty fee’s for people that can’t afford and wont get healthcare. And the people that will be layed off from companies trying to balance the cost of fines or mandated healthcare for the other employees that they decide to keep. And the the people who will be taxed and penalized for making over $200,000+

Not to incite a class war or anything, but since I make $11,000 and deephurting just made a reference to using donation money to pay rent next month, I don’t expect there to be a tremendous outpouring of sympathy for those poor unfortunate souls who will be taxed and penalized for making over $200,000+.

seems about right

“Employers with 50 or more workers who do not offer coverage face a fine of $2,000 for each employee if any worker receives subsidized insurance on the exchange. The first 30 employees aren’t counted for the fine.”

Doesn’t sound too bad at all. Plus it’s a good business decision to keep your employees healthy.
