A while ago, someone asked me to give my opinion on the bill that would require Wal-Mart to pay for its employees health care instead of dropping them off on the stoop of every taxpayer in Maryland.
This is a very good bill. Companies should not force the government to pay for their employee's health care. The bill was only labeled the 'Wal-Mart Bill' by Wal-Mart and its representatives in public relations and the State House. The bill states that any company which employs 10,000 or more people in Maryland can not get away with forcing its employees to use Medicare for their health care needs. These companies must offer some sort of plan. Apparently, the jackals, sorry, the Republican representatives in Maryland and Wal-Mart consider this bill and unfair burden that will render Wal-Mart uncompetitive. This is complete and utter bullshit. This bill reverts the competitive advantage that Wal-Mart gains by shoving its employee onto the Medicare system. If this means that Wal-Mart will pull out of Maryland, then that is just another added benefit. Let's get an American Apparel plant to move in. Or something. Wal-Mart is so full of crap, my eyes turn brown just looking at one.
Also, Wal-Mart wants to destroy the public education system of America. How patriotic is that? Removing the school system would only be another step towards a division of class that would be so utterly against our founding principles that it would make Carter weep.
In conclusion, bite my ass, Wal-Mart. I will never shop there again. It has been four years, almost to the day, that I last bought anything there.
