President Barack Obama wants all Americans to have health care. Some companies do not even offer it. Others only hire part-timers to avoid offering it, and some companies want the employees to bear the sole responsibility of paying for it.

The only way I can see this happening is if all employers are required to offer health care plans and contribute to it. Most employers are getting to greedy and only want to line their pockets and could care less about their employees.
