Obviously I dont know what line of business your family is in, but I do know how financially successful McDonalds is, how deep their pockets are. If your father's small business can afford to pay benefits, then certainly McDonalds can afford it also, and yet they are exempt from being mandated to do so like your father will be once everything is in place.

You must be outraged, comparing the relative wealth of these 2 entities; it's really no different at all than some rich guy like Romney paying half the effective tax rate of his comparatively poor secretary, after all. Maybe if a champion of the middle class gets into power, that unbalance can be rectified.
