Fact: 1/6 of US economy is healthcare industry. QUESTION: How many jobs will be lost under Obama Care or the House Bill ? This issue needs to be addressed! All healthcare related businesses from pharmacies to dialysis centers to nursing homes to outpatient surgical centers could potentially close their doors under the "public option" in Obama Care - including any related industries for goods and services - from claims processors to manufacturers of prosthetics. If the profit incentive is lost, if the free market in healthcare has a wrecking ball taken to it, millions of healthcare employees could end up losing employment. Literally millions of jobs could be at stake but I've not heard any politician address this issue. To wreck 1/6 of the American economy and cause millions of more people to lose their jobs while driving this country further in debt is absurd! Here is an old link about Tennessee - 1/5 of this region's economy. June, 2007: "Health care injects $18.3 billion annually into the middle Tennessee economy and accounts for more than one-fifth of the region's nonfarm employment, the report found. Conducted by the Business and Economic Research Center at the Jennings Jones College of Business at Middle Tennessee State University, the report examined the impact of the health care industry on business." http://www.allbusiness.com/health-care/health-care-overview/8765127-1.html With our economy already in peril, under indebtedness to the Chinese and others for billions of dollars, if you are in the healthcare industry, will you lose your job under Obamacare? These are serious questions Senators and Congressmen need to ask - how will destroying 1/6 of the American economy affect the unemployment rates across this nation? I see it having a devastating effect. Healthcare used to be one main recession-proof and economically secure industry. Obamacare will destroy that and millions of more Americans will be standing in unemployment lines if this universal healthcare system goes through. Mark my words. Elected officials/Politicians need to get their heads out of the Obama scam and Beltway bubble and get down to EARTH! Just the impact on our economy/jobs alone should give every American cause for concern. Bottom line, Senator and Congressman: Are you 535 people willing to give up the healthcare benefits you presently enjoy and be subject to the same plan as the MILLIONS of Americans you want to impose this on? IF NOT, don't force me onto it!
