Today's topic at my blog "Resurgence" on BigThink.com:
Working Poor Confused About New Healthcare Law
The mother of a young South Carolinian shared her daughter's story earlier this week on a political blog I frequent. Her daughter was pretty upset about the "poor people" around the country "who don't want to work". It was these people, her boss swore, who were causing him to have to cut her daughter's pay to cover the cost of the insurance he was going to have to provide. So the mother asked her daughter a question. "You have a full-time job. You work hard. Could you afford your own health insurance?"
"Then you're a poor person."
