How many people do you suppose forgo attempting to run their own business because they have family and need health insurance?

    I'm on a Canadian forum and what amazes me is the number of people who are either pursuing their dream, or running their own businesses because they think of health care like it's air.

    I wonder how much better the economy would be if we weren't all scared into serfdom.

    I just had this conversation with my sister yesterday.

    A long discussion on health care and I brought this up to her.

    I think lots of people are trapped in jobs because that is their only way for healthcare.

    Nancy Pelosi in her last talk before the vote on the health care bill brought this out,

    I have tried to get her last comments on the subject as it was moving, and very hopeful.

    It would open up entrepreneurs, IMO, to explore and contribute. An asset to all.

    My sister and I would like to start a business together, she has health ins and plans to always

    have it, I have none, so I would not lose anything by starting the business in that way.

    We would have to be at a place where she has ins before she would quit her job,

    which is ok, just hope it does not take too long.

    Not an issue here in the UK. The good old NHS provides for the moment!

    BTS, that's not an argument, that's an observation. On the otherhand it is a logical fallacy. If you want to know which one it is and you think about it really hard, and then ask someone who's nothing at all like you, then you might hear them explain it to you. This won't mean that you'll have any idea what the explanation means. It'll probably sound "faggy" to you.

    Not that anyone on this board will ever know if BTS is telling the truth about his various business ventures or not.

    So I think it's safe to say he isn't, since he generally has a convenient personal anecdote for whatever political argument he's currently engaged in.

    SixOfNine doesn't tell people about his bizarre sexual habits.

    did not stop me neither.

    we pay for health insurance and pay taxes.

    monthly taxes, quarterly, and yearly

    Health care for a company is a legitimate, tax deductable expense. That are a lot of other, bigger roadblocks to starting your own business.
