“Unfortunately it's more than a glitch. People who were promised they could keep their insurance now in many cases have been kicked off. This is more than a website problem, it's something both parties in congress and the president knew about when the bill was passed and are now scrambling with plans when some are already without insurance who thought they could keep their health insurance.”

“That really couldn't be further from the truth. But the reality is that companies need to make money in order to pay their employees, and sometimes, because of new technologies, companies can't make money anymore, and they go out of business. It's sad, but it's just reality. Think about bookstores. Bookstores are losing money because a lot of people are buying books on their Kindles or iPads. Eventually, if a bookstore doesn't get enough customers and make enough money to stay open, pay the bills, and pay the employees, they'll have to either start selling something other than books so that they can make money, or they'll need to close. It's sad but true.”

“Netflix could be taxed a little more to subsidize giving Blockbuster employees a living wage.”

Night cheese on Nov 7, 2013 at 08:44:45

“No, Netflix is a separate company, and it's a competitor to Blockbuster. Blockbuster is bankrupt because people don't want to rent movies from a store anymore, because they can rent movies through the mail, through Redbox, or through their TVs. So Blockbuster doesn't make enough money anymore. No amount of taxes can fix that. If I open up a store that sells things that nobody wants, and I get no customers and make no money, and I go bankrupt, it might be sad for me and my employees, but I need to close my store. I can't take money from others (in the form of taxes or anything else) to keep my business open just so that my employees can keep getting paid. That's just not how business works. If you want to make money and you want to pay your employees, you need to offer something that people want and you need to MAKE money, not take money.”

“Another example of a greedy corporation putting their bottom line ahead of the needs of their employees. Why not stay open so the employees can save their jobs? And these employees should earn a living wage.”

swisstrinity on Nov 6, 2013 at 22:49:14

“Wait what? So you think that the company should keep losing money so that the employees stand there all and do nothing??? Wow. Talk about being out of touch.”

ejay579 on Nov 6, 2013 at 08:19:55

“It is not outside money that is the problem. It is too much money. What has shocked the Republicans is the fact that the Democrat have been able to keep pace and, in certain cases, out raise and out spend Republicans. Can you even imagine the Teabaggers response to a Constitutional amendment to override Citizens United?”
