BILL O'REILLY (HOST): Now that's a challenge to all Americans to help the downtrodden, but how to help them is the issue. Most Americans are very generous folks. But we must all be careful not to make problems worse in the name of compassion. Let's take Obamacare, for example. It certainly helps poor people who cannot afford health insurance. There's no doubt the intention of that entitlement program is noble. But by forcing subsidized health insurance payments on businesses, President Obama has made it more difficult to create full-time jobs in America. Thus, while some of the poor benefit, other Americans are punished because the job market is smaller and salaries are lower. It's well documented that many American businesses have cut back the hours of their employees, citing the cost of Obamacare. So the truth is, there is a better way to deliver health services to the poor than a massive government intrusive program. Insurance competition and direct subsidies to the destitute on a case by case basis is the answer.
