How does forcing people to buy health insurance really solve the healthcare issue in this country? Especially if they can’t afford it? The fine for not paying is less than the cost of healthcare. Our politicians sold out the the healthcare industry. Medical tourism is something that is becoming more common. Medical tourism is when someone goes out of the US to another country to get their operation, surgery or other medical or dental needs taken care of. It’s cheaper to go to India, get your operation, recover and see the country than it is to have it done in the US.
Healthcare should be a guaranteed right in the America. Now the argument is that people wonder how it will be paid for. Which is valid. Do we all just say, everyone fend for themselves? Everyone go into debt themselves? No one is to blame for being diagnosed with cancer or some other illness. Things like that happen and can take a whole family into debt. Yes, people shouldn’t be getting sex changes or other unnecessary procedures under any free healthcare system. But surely there has to be something better than this.

I’ve noticed lots of employers like to look for people that are not “job hoppers”. But what is considered to be a job hopper? What if someone has moved up from several positions or had a slight slump and needed to move around a bit. What is wrong with testing out new fields of work. Our employers look for “stable” employees in certain fields for years, but yet don’t offer long term retirement or any guarantees they won’t be laid off to cut a little savings. How many jobs and how many months must people have before being considered going from job to job. If each job was for better pay, why is that a bad thing. People are moving up and moving on. Employment in this time period is tough, people should applaud others getting ahead or moving up and not staying with the same thing over and over. The weird thing is even the low end jobs are saying this.

I had a Edwards Tools & Accessories Folding Step Stool. The maximum weight it supports is 21.5 stones which is 301 pounds, I weigh about half that and it ended up cracking on me near where the handle and middle folding grooves are. That being said I would not suggest buying any plastic folding step stools.

Seems Yahoo! subscribed everyone that uses Yahoo Mail to their Daily Yahoo stories. Pretty common for Yahoo to do something like this, I marked a few as spam then unsubscribed.

I’ve noticed Walmart has changed their generic Great Value brand packaging. It used to be easy to find since it was always a white package, with simple text and a graphic that didn’t get in the way. Now Walmart has made the packaging more colorful. The reason why is simple, the harder it is to find the generic brand, the more likely you’ll buy the name brand product and spend more money. Many times the generic brands are often the same product as the name brand just offered at a cheaper price. Great Value is usually the cheapest thing on the shelf, but not always. Now when I go shopping I have a take a few more seconds to pick up the right items in the aisle.
Walmart has even mentioned to our government that the middle class is struggling, and I’m sure they would know with their sales data. Recently they even voiced their approval that there should be an increase in the minimum wage.
