    He's right about both issues? By his own admission he doesn't even understand Obamacare and is not sure what it's going to cost him. What kind of employer is so clueless and lazy that given how many years to prepare he still hasn't done the work neccessary to get up to speed and learn these things. Then he goes out and starts bad mouthing something he himself admits he doesn't understand.
    He truly is representative of a large number of ignorant americans who speak before they take the time to know what they're talking about. THe fact he makes a living on the misery of others from a business he inherited from his daddy doesn't speak much about him either. I'd respect him as an entrepreneur but apparently he's been too busy for the last 3 years to learn the law. Maybe if he spent less time on google trying to appear as an expert on items that come in his shop and more time on websites that cover Obamacare he'd have an informed decision.

    @frigginhell You mean that 2400 page bill our own congress didnt read, and passed anyway just to "see whats in it". The same bill that is now having part unconstitutionally suspended because the side affects of certain parts wont play politically well for the people who created it and pushed it? And based on his comments on the Federal Reserve, he sounds like he knows pretty well what he is talking about. In fact he actually gives more evidence and less name calling in support of his view of the topics than you offer at all.

    @frigginhell In the interview he said he has to hire an outside accounting firm just to interpret the 2,700 pages of the law and the 23,000 pages of accompanying/associated regulations. This is every small/medium business in America. Our government (fed, state, AND local) is making it too difficult to run a business. Mr. Harrison isn't the first entrepreneur/employer I've heard this from.

    @frigginhell This time you sound like the idiot yelling to everyone running out of a burning building; "You're going the wrong way"!

    He is right, period, Goverment has bastardize, abused and totally taken advantage of the people of this country. What they are doing today is why we had a revolution. We have uncontrolled taxation without competent representation and we have turned our currency into monopoly money and you can bet your sweet ass that passing go now has consequence in steat of reward.

    If I was in the pawn business I definitely wouldn't want a strong economy. Desperate people selling off their valuables for chump change is a real quick way to get rich.

    Giving money to people for doing nothing encourages them to continue to do nothing. Let's set up a two-party system whereby those who believe in social welfare can support it while the rest of us keep our money.

    How are you going to get to work without driving on those public roads the rest of us pay for? How are you going to do your part to defend our nation from foreign enemies without paying taxes for the professional army the rest of us contribute to?

    You have to be awfully unobservant to think you are a law unto yourself.

    @Zazziness 99.9% of the people supporting multiple generations of welfare trash would differ in opinion. It does nobody any good; it's like owning pets but it's people instead of dogs and cats.

    @Your_Name_Here Except that multigenerational welfare is a tiny, tiny percentage of the Americans who receive aide from the government. The vast majority are children, the elderly and the working poor.

    "Harrison said the law is likely to hurt health care coverage for his shop's 63 employees, though he hasn't had time to read through all the specifics."

    Are we sure Mr Harrison doesn't post here? He'd fit right in. ;)

    Do you think the folks that passed our current healthcare law read the specifics? I wonder if some of them actually read a single page of it.

    I hear the ones who came up with the law didn't read it either, that's probably why Obama wants to delay it yet because no one else gets it too.

    I don't give a rat's hairy but what some TV "celebrity" thinks of the government. There are 3 million Americans in this country and a whole lot of them don't have the common sense to pour water on their head if their hair was on fire.

    Wow. And you figured that out from one simple post?!?!? You're amazing. America's Got Talent just might have a place for you.

    I wondering now too, if you don't have multiple profiles going on here. I spend time trying to match them up. I think I just hit on two.

    I doubt it, and even if it was, History Channel would be stupid not to renew. Pawn Stars is one of their top grossing shows and there has been two spin-offs as a result.

    I doubt that the History Channel will drop him. But, there may be some "political clause" added. However, I bet the Barack Husssein Obama bunch will try to drop any federal funding the History Channel gets if they don't drop Rick.

    Remove the insurance companies and government programs and the healthcare industry will no longer be able to abuse them hence the cost will fall dramatically!

    As for the Federal Reserve ... their systemically trying to destroy the value of the dollar! Take a real close look at Japan and the Yen .... that's where were headed folks!

    $100 just to buy a stick of gum ... lol!

    Fact is that this Obamacare is overly complicated, written by a group of corrupted democrat lawyers and incompetent government folks.
    Liberals themselves do not understand this bill, However they gloss it over with liberal zealotry!! Because they support a socialistic European type half assed medical insurance plan.
    Liberals will promote anything that will damage our country...Remember fundamental
    change?
    It has been a liberal goal to damage this country for yrs.
    Liberals absolutely hate our Capitalistic system.
    They want everyone to get a check from Government, However where does the Government get the monies that they give out? clue working taxpayers.
    So if no one is working...then what? where would this new monies come from?
    Hence there you have it...The creation of the 3rd world goal.
    See liberals will do what ever it takes to Bankrupt America, because in their minds it isnt fair that other countries are poor, So all countries should therefore be poor.

    He's right, and everyone else who is against Obamacare. I recently had to purchase a family healthcare care plan. I shopped Blue Shield, Cigna, United Health, etc... I ended up purchasing a plan that's "decent" not what I would consider good, the cost $1,071.00 per month. Nearly 40% more then what my other plan was which was better three years ago. This bill will kill the middle and working class. Go ahead and try to buy insurance under the affordable care act (Obamacare) the basic bottom of the line plan is $1,600.00 per month. I don't know to many part time employee that will be able to afford that even if the employer mandate kicks in 50% or $800 a month to the employee. This is nothing but a massive tax across the board that will eventually kill every working Americans ability to prosper. At some point the government will run out of other people's money.

    He is right... listen his father and him started a small business and grew it to bigger smaller business. He took his lumps in business he understands small business .. the American people needs to here from small business men and women that knows what there talking about... he is right the government is out of control with a house and Senate and now a president that's not for small business
    or even corporate America anymore.

    He is dead on right about this. When the government became involved in health care that's when more & more regulations kicked in, they started telling hospitals & doctors what they could charge, etc. In the earlier days of this country a person went to the doctor & paid him whatever he decided. Many times they'd pay he when they could or on their payday or when the crops came in. Yes, times were simpler but it just shows you how the government screws things up. You have so-called "do-gooders" who suddenly decide they know what's best for the entire country. Same with ObamaCare. Instead of just focusing on those w/o health care coverage the government decides to jump into the private market as well. And even after ObamaCare is finally implemented, the government admits at least 20 million or more will still be w/o any coverage! So why bother?

    Of course, if it was like it "used to be" the top tax rate would be 70%, and corporations would pay their taxes (or in the alternative, donate to those charitable hospitals).
