Most Americans oppose health law but like provisions...

from Yahoo front page news (emphasis mine):
[...]Sixty-one percent are in favor of allowing children to stay on their parents' insurance until age 26 and 72 percent back requiring companies with more than 50 employees to provide insurance for their employees. source

Allow me to sum up the stupidity of this:

Lose your job, lose your insurance.

Does that make sense?

Insurance should be purchased by and belong to the insured, not the business where they are employed. 

Three things to do immediately to get real health insurance reform started:

  1. Immediately open the market to real competition by allowing insurance companies to sell across state lines.
  2. Remove all federal mandates and state mandates.
  3. Start work on tort reform
Those three steps will alleviate 90% of the problem.   The first two can be accomplished in a matter of minutes. The third will take a bit longer. 
We keep drifting further and further from the real issue.  The federal government has no business poking their nose into the health insurance business, education, or allowing the EPA to monitor a ditch on your property.  What is so hard to understand about this?
