Then tens of thousands of families will face higher costs for groceries, clothes and TP. More thousands (WalMart employees) will have NO income to purchase those things AT ALL. When rational business owners react EXACTLY as they should (trying to stay profitable and survive in a competitive market) you see that as unwarranted panic? You think they should just bend over and do what President EgObama and idiot liberals wish... pay through the nose because they have some imagined "responsibility" to the workers they hire besides a paycheck? On what POSSIBLE basis is paying for employee healthcare anything but a perk ("fringe benefit")?I guess that "right" is next to those in the Constitution to abort and get free everything else. Nut!
