I shopped at Walmart back when I was under the impression that they were cheaper than the other stores but they aren't...I also don't like the fact that they push many small businesses out of business...mom and pop types of places...

This is just another reason to add to the many reason why I don't like them...

I don't shop at Walmart, either.

An old friend of mine used to work there full time and had health insurance. After she developed diabetes, Walmart reduced her hours to part time so they could cancel her health insurance.

Yes, we need national health care. The Affordable Care Act is just the beginning.

And another reason why we need to push for a form of national healthcare that provides medical care for everyone and is not linked to anyone's employment ANYWHERE ... I do not shop at Walmart for anything except my RX's since they are way cheaper there than anywhere else (another BIG reason, if I needed one, to get myself healthy enough to get off the rest of the blood pressure meds.)
