Health Care Reform

There's an article in my home town newspaper regarding one of the new health care mandates.  This particular article is about breast-feeding moms and how businesses must provide a place for nursing mothers to pump.

The gentleman who wrote the article (and his editor) messed up on the headline, which is misleading in the statement that all businesses must provide this, but further in the article, we discover that it pertains to businesses with 50+ employees.  Fortunately, that excludes my business.

I so often get sucked in by the comments made by my wonderfully, educated, enlightened neighbors.

Interestingly enough, I can't find the 2000 page text document so that I can read the details myself.  I did find the government's website.  I don't feel warm and fuzzy that it will give me all the details I need.  I find myself concerned and wondering how many businesses are going to be penalized for not complying with items in this bill that they were unaware of.

Am I becoming a conspiracy theorist?  I don't believe so.  But I am concerned about how much the government feels they have the right to control my life...whether it's my business life or my personal life.

Does anyone know where I can find the 2000 page text?
