Good enough for Wal-Mart

In case you had a doubt at all that the government-run health program being pushed by the Obama administration will not only be a financial drain for the taxpayers of this country as well as essentially destroy the free enterprise health system we currently enjoy, you need to be aware that the Wal-Mart corporation has come out in full support of the president’s program. This is a company that has fought for years against offering its employees fair and valuable health benefits and only provides them today because of the threat of unionization of its employees.

Wal-Mart, since having to upgrade its health insurance program for its employees, is still simmering because every small company in the communities they try to monopolize does not have to offer the same health program to its employees. In fact, if they had to offer the same program or even a variation, it more than likely would force them to close their doors.

Make no mistake, Wal-Mart would like to see every business they compete against close.

If the government succeeds in passing the health reform bill that is currently before them, then almost every business will have to offer health benefits. Wal-Mart will have won again.

We strongly suggest that you contact your senators and representatives and tell them you do not want them to vote yes on this bill.
