Of course, if you read The Sun, you get the impression this is just a minor setback.
Maryland's first-in-the-nation law to compel Wal-Mart to spend more on employee health care suffered another setback yesterday, providing fresh incentive for legislative leaders in Annapolis to explore ways to boost insurance coverage that do not involve the retailing giant.Nah, they aren't letting editorial content sneak into news reporting.
With the future of the so-called Wal-Mart law in doubt, state legislators are planning to resurrect a host of other possible health care solutions during the 90-day legislative session that began last week, including an expansion of the Medicaid program to low-income adults, a reduction in insurance premiums for small businesses and a requirement that the state's highest paid workers buy insurance coverage.
They just don't get it. 50 years of creeping Socialism, and the 'problems' still need 'solutions'.
