  • Wall Street Breakfast: Must-Know News [View article]
    First to Fire Buck: My guess is he has never seen the up front cost for a business supplying health care insurance to it's employees either. I recently was in communication with the folks who bought my first start up. Insurance was $9,000 per employee for the company and at the time it was an 80%/20% split with employees paying the remaining 20%. They can't find a comparable plan today unless they are willing to go bankrupt providing health care insurance for the employees. Surprise surprise they aren't willing to do that. I won't discuss this further but it's not going to be a good solution for the employees; many of whom I know personally.

    Not so fast Bob. The projected budget is balanced because voters agreed to raise taxes. The legislature had little to say about it and they still have until June to screw it up and I have faith that they will do just that. http://huff.to/MIF4Lh

    So you have no solutions and refuse to be honest about the sorry condition of our public school system. All you care to do is whine about it and suggest we spend even more on a system that has demonstrably failed with the resources already made available. I would suggest that you are more a part of the problem than parents like me who are and were willing to step up to the plate. I successfully fought our local school board to introduce advanced placement courses and the ability to get a technical certification or two year degree upon graduation from high school for students with the desire and aptitude for such endeavors. What have you accomplished? You refer us to a government web site put up by a dishonest administration with separate links to mostly BS. I'll ask you again: What do you propose as a solution given the fact that what you reference has already proven to be a failure? I'll ask again: What have you accomplished to have an impact at the local level? You did read what I posted regarding graduating debt free etc... didn't you? Probably not as your mind is made up and firmly closed to anything except your cherished ideology that doesn't work in the real world. I'm perfectly willing to change my mind given accurate facts. Are you? This is how progressives solve education problems in the real world and it's not pretty http://bit.ly/MIDysC so you can drop your sanctimonious politically correct facade.

    He's welcome to give away all of his money if he wants. Obama is busily giving away mine and I'm not happy about it. Check this out. Employers can conduct all the layoffs they want. They just can't tell anyone that it's because of Obamatax. http://fxn.ws/1aRrEIb

    THOUGHT POLICE: FIRMS MUST SWEAR OBAMACARE NOT A FACTOR IN FIRINGS
    Is the latest delay of ObamaCare regulations politically motivated? Consider what administration officials announcing the new exemption for medium-sized employers had to say about firms that might fire workers to get under the threshold and avoid hugely expensive new requirements of the law. Obama officials made clear in a press briefing that firms would not be allowed to lay off workers to get into the preferred class of those businesses with 50 to 99 employees. How will the feds know what employers were thinking when hiring and firing? Simple. Firms will be required to certify to the IRS – under penalty of perjury – that ObamaCare was not a motivating factor in their staffing decisions. To avoid ObamaCare costs you must swear that you are not trying to avoid ObamaCare costs. You can duck the law, but only if you promise not to say so. http://fxn.ws/1aRrEIb

    Consider the structure of whom voted for what. Boenher will rely on House Democrats to pass the bill. http://politi.co/1jt7gQt You see the TEA party doesn't have the numbers to stop anything from passing the house because there are more Democrats in the House than TEA party and conservative members combined. Thus the next time you hear Democrats blame conservatives and TEA party members for something failing in the house you will know with certainty it was Democrats who actually caused the measure to fail. RINOS and Democrats far out number TEA party and conservatives combined!

    He teamed up with Obama who is also shedding payroll around the country. At least in Buffet's case he actually has a stake in the businesses where the cuts are happening.

    Boenher may just as well be a Democrat since he seems to side with them and do detrimental things to conservatives.

    Rich see the post upstream regarding universal health care via big government and open borders. You can't have both!

    Every other nation considered to be first world enforces it's borders. You can't pick and choose. Either you want a EZ socialist state or you don't. You can't have all the safety nets including universal government health care as you describe along side an open border policy. Which one do you prefer; open borders or a nanny state? You can't have both! Until recently we opted for open borders. Now we are undergoing the POTUS "Fundamental transformation." and that will no longer be an option.

    The point is that the POTUS is not in compliance with his duties under the constitution!

    Now you must report any lay offs to the IRS along with a sworn statement that it wasn't due to Obamatax under penalty of perjury. Businesses will no longer be able to effectively manage their operations as far as personnel actions. http://bit.ly/1aRlWWJ

    It's all Bush's fault. Everyone knows it would have worked flawlessly had it not been for him and the evil Republicans.
