Updated 4/29/2011: The last paragraph has been changed.

Plans to cut the national debt and repeal health care reform miss the main issue. We can’t pay our bills without people.

Dead people don’t make money, spend money, or pay taxes. Business and public policies in the U.S. kill people.

Policies Force Tough Choices

Some policies overlook bad working conditions and consumer health; rules that help workers sometimes stress employers.

Even fair employers will cut jobs if the costs of regulation and paperwork run too high. These costs can kill or delay the dreams of entrepreneurs who want to create more jobs.

People who don’t have jobs can’t buy goods and services. When demand falls, tax proceeds drop and public employees lose their jobs.

Workers who keep their jobs work more hours. Longer hours leave less time for relaxation, personal business, and family.

Overwhelmed couples feel unable to give children the time and money they need and have smaller families or no children at all. Some seek abortions to protect unborn children from stress that never ends.*

Stress Kills

Uncontrolled stress increases the death rate by 40%, says a study by the late Hans Eysenck of the University of London. But most stress-related chronic illnesses, like heart disease, are expensive because they kill people slowly.

Conditions related to or aggravated by stress cause 70-80% of all doctor’s visits, says “Healthy People 2000,” a report by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

The report also says the $200-300 billion spent on job-related stress each year includes absenteeism, productivity losses, and insurance claims. And private insurers or public programs pick up the tab when someone retires with a disability that was caused by stress.

Local, state, and federal governments increase taxes, and businesses increase prices to cover those costs. Rising costs decrease cash flow and cause more stress for all.

Excess stress leads to a long, slow death. The costs of a slow death are much higher than the costs of a slow life.

The national debt and health care costs will fall when we make choices that reduce our stress. Without dramatic changes, a shrinking number of people will be left to split the bills.

* Note: The above statement was about reality, not my personal beliefs on abortion.

    you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
    I have had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting
    my thoughts out there. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the
    first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to
    figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?
    Cheers!

    website is really fabulous.

  31. Its like you read my thoughts! You seem to grasp so much approximately this, like you wrote
    the e-book in it or something. I feel that you
    can do with some p.c. to force the message home a little bit, however instead of that, that is
    magnificent blog. An excellent read. I will definitely be

  33. Awesome post.

  34. I was worried due to some drawbacks I encountered. Owing to your text from now I understand what to do. With this guidance I find it no more hard.

  35. While I was searching on the Internet, all of a sudden I came to a realization that there is first solution to my issue. It was you who made everything clear. Great job!

  36. actually, I make money while I sleep, so when I’m dead I’m sure that I will continue to accumulate money. My businesses require overhead, so in return I will continue to spend money once I’m dead. Your right about one thing though, I will be unable to pay taxes after death unless the American government eventually provides an automated process to do so.

    The fact is that Chinese workers die at work all the time. Do the facts change what products you buy? Or are you and everyone else going to continue to sit in our Chinese made chairs and wear out Chinese made shirts.

    To be honest, I’m not really sure what the purpose of your post is. It seems like random paragraphs strung together in a semi-cohesive manner, much like I have done just now. I’m going to cap this comment off otherwise it will be longer then the original post.

    Cheers, happy capitalism day!!
