ppl want a job that has benefits, like healthcare, sure u can find a job easy without benefits and healthcare, , healthcare being the main benefit, the jobs that have healthcare, are not easy to find, like the building supply store LOWES, do what alot do have part time jobs available but have no benefits, those are the jobs available, if you work there along time u finally can get some benefits i think, walmart is the same way, they usually hire part time ppl and not furnish benefits, but lots of ppl there have benefits but have been there along time to achieve that, and the pay is low, and healthcare there is expensive, and not real good, but better than nothing. companies use to furnish free healthcare 40 years ago but now the employees for most companies the the employee has to pay part of the healthcare insurance,

yes but the courts are reversing obamas health care, and it will eventually go to the supreme court, but i think the supreme court will uphold the reversals of the parts of the obama healthcare, the main part is requiring all to have insurance by 2014 .. and if all is not covered, it will just be as it is now, the ones that have insurance the premiums will be high because the hospitals will only pass on the pll they have to cover free like illegals, and such, to the ppl that have insurance, that was the main thing to get all ppl covered, but so far the courts are striking it down... and if obama looses, by 2014 the republicans will do away with it all,

Here is just one article of many on the courts upholding Obama's Healthcare reform

CINCINNATI In the first ruling by a federal appeals court on President Barack Obama's health care overhaul, a panel in Cincinnati handed the administration a victory Wednesday by agreeing that the government can require a minimum amount of insurance for Americans.

A Republican-appointed judge joined with a Democratic appointee for the 2-1 majority in another milestone for Obama's hotly debated signature domestic initiative the first time a Republican federal court appointee has affirmed the merits of the law.

The White House and Justice Department hailed the panel's affirmation of an earlier ruling by a federal court in Michigan; opponents of the law said challenges will continue to the U.S. Supreme Court.

At issue is a conservative law center's lawsuit arguing on behalf of plaintiffs that potentially requiring them to buy insurance or face penalties could subject them to financial hardship. The suit warns that the law is too broad and could lead to more federal mandates.

The Thomas More Law Center, based in Ann Arbor, Mich., argued before the panel that the law was unconstitutional and that Congress overstepped its powers.

The government countered that the measure was needed for the overall goal of reducing health care costs and reforms such as protecting people with pre-existing conditions. It said the coverage mandate will help keep the costs of changes from being shifted to households and providers.

White House adviser Stephanie Cutter called the ruling "another victory" for millions of Americans and small businesses benefiting from the overhaul.

"At the end of the day, we are confident the constitutionality of these landmark reforms will be upheld," she said in a statement
