Health Care / Jobs

We live in a society that is, basically, a capitalist economy.  One invests time or energy or money into something in the hopes of reaping a reward in the future.  That is how businesses operate.  They strive to maximize their profits.  This goes for the appliance manufacturers, the airplane builders, the car makers and the insurance companies.  This is generally understood to be the way our country operates.

Has anyone considered that when a company like Whirlpool closes its manufacturing facility in Evansville, Indiana, that one of the considerations is the cost of providing health care for American workers versus the cost of providing health care for the people in the new plant in Mexico?  Or to phrase it slightly differently, is the high cost of health care in this country a leading contributor to unemployment as companies move their operations to other countries?
