Recently there has been a bill in Maryland that would force Walmart to pay more for health care for it’s employees. Republicans are saying that this is bad for business and is socialistic and blah blah blah.
Well, guess what. When Walmart DOESN’T give its employees health insurance, those employees end up relying on the government for health care, which ends up costing the taxpayers, and ultimately is MORE socialistic.
I don’t know where I side on this issue, because I haven’t thought about it much, but I think a point that it missed is that if Walmart doesn’t pay for this, then I will, and that is not in keeping with the ideals that most conservatives state.
