How many R's live paycheck to paycheck. What's gonna happen when they are asked to buy into COBRA with COVID still raging?
    Boo hoo. They’ll be living (what they’ve been telling us is) the easy life, collecting those free government checks without a care in the world. That’s how welfare works, right?
    If you don't change the world today, how can it be any better tomorrow?

And since vaccine is not a pre-existing condition, it's a choice, then the open market healthcare companies can charge more for coverage- noting the cost data of dealing with unvaxord sick people.

        But seeing the pretty high population of people who are vaccinated, and there's going to be a decent chunk who will probably get it- the ones who are petulant children may end up being pretty small.
        I work for a medium sized company and they’re more than willing to hire unvaccinated people. They think it will help get more people through the door but I think it’s penny wise pound foolish.

        One thing that I’m going to be interested to see play out is shortage of essential goods and services. It seems like almost overnight(it’s really a crisis 20+ years in the making) we have run out of housing and cars are really tough right now as well due to the chip shortage. I’ve noticed at the grocery store a lot of stuff is out of stock as well. Covid is likely going to make healthcare and education that much tough/expensive too.

          For the latter, I'm hoping that business actually learn the flaws of their system, and fix it. But that would mean companies look really long term, and assume that interruptions actually will happen. The very delicate supply chain needs to be fixed, including diversifying where stuff comes from. Maybe the US auto industry can get chips made in the USA, like we were when I started my career 30 years ago.

          There are always flaws in the rush to the bottom of the cost.

            The factory in Indiana where GM is currently parking their "Built Shy" pickup trucks awaiting chips was once a former chip factory for GM until they offshore'd their manufacturing.

              I'm sure the irony is missed by Mary.

              We did the same thing, removing the electronics part of our company about 25 years ago, and since then, they have shrunk over time. And now we are stuck with too many single sources that are not on this continent. Hardly shocking that we also have thousands of vehicles waiting for computers.

              • I see some R's in Michigan congress are trying to prevent any covid related actions- including masking and vaccine mandates. Might as well remove all drunk driving laws, so that people can make their own personal choices without regard to the rest of the state.

                Seems like that should just be the easy challenge- if they want to prevent all actions related to covid, should we also just eliminate all drunk driving laws, since they cost society so much less- fewer deaths, fewer hospitalizations, less burden on insurance companies, etc.

                            • COVID is about to become a crisis. It is inconveniencing business travelers.

                                Business travel is still a fraction of what it was before March 2020. I still have not flown for work since then, and very few people at my firm have been approved to fly. They'll mainly be inconveniencing Ma & Pa Kettle trying to visit the Grand Canyon or escape the snow this winter.
