The money goes to the owner of the business who invested in that machine, to the engineers who spent their time designing and building it and to the shareholders in the form of profits. Alternatively this allows a lower cost of product in which case it goes nowhere, except not out of the consumers pocket. This is why in real terms the cost products can fall.
The profit in developing, buying, and maintaining these machines is factored in to the 4 Luddite cost of the machine in this example. Let's also recognize that this remaining Luddite doesn't have the skills of the previous 10, and is probably only being paid at a fraction of the rate.
Dems call for compromise and idiot Republicans agree to part of the outrageous program.
When you say outrageous program in this context, you mean *how every other civilized country runs their healthcare program*. When you say agree to part of the outrageous program, you mean *force private for-profit to run the program even though there is no evidence that it will save money, but because it is necessary for someone to turn a profit on any financial transaction*.
