Response to Such a worn out comment and reflects someone who has no clue how
218 reps (50%)
50 senators (VP breaks tie)
275 can bring down this country. throw in a few unaccoutable czars and cabinet secretaries and there you go.
complements? legistaltive branch and prez have some of the worst approval ratings ever recorded, regardless of party. I think that speaks to the idea of a 'complment.'
business leaders can only break their own companies. It takes government to really screw things up. And they have.
I caught a bit of Stossel the other night, talking with people about O-care. 3 CEOs, none wanting to hire because the costs are unknown. One gave an example of someone starting a company and the bank/investors asking what the payroll would look like for the first 3 years. And the company founder would NOT be able to predict this, even knowing the anticipated number of employees, because there are so many rules under O-care that are TBD by the 'secretary' that it's impossible to plan for payroll. That was done by just a few more than the minimum of 275 (unless the court ends up throwing the whole mess out).
