Political Alliances
I've never understood why the proponents of business in America do not side with those of us who would prefer a national health-care system. What do business executives complain about the most? The rising costs of health and retirement benefits. And yet all we hear is about how Democrats and liberals would be bad for business. Why is it not their fiduciary duty to advocate a system that would remove these heavy financial burdens and allow them to better compete? Do the rewards of corporate tax welfare packages really outweigh the costs of employee benefit packages? Kevin Drum has more.
