A blog for those politicos looking for a place to vent!
83%? And this guy gets paid $174,00 per year? I bet he didn't vote for the Senators to move onto the same plan they voted on for the rest of us eitherDon't forget this yes to bankruptcy vote when you get the chance to vote no to tester next time
Jon, Jon get a grip. You probably better start thinking about getting back to your "organic" Farm and forget about your teacher friends. I have several family members in the teaching profession and they do quite well working 9 1/2 months out of the year with "benni's" up the yeng, holiday breaks,Spring Break, etc. Try being a small business person and waking up each morning not knowing if you will make payroll, payments, etc. unless you get out and make something happen!!!!
No One...are you suggesting that teachers don't work hard and only you do? And are you really suggesting that teachers get paid well?? LOL that is funny!! And if you are worried that you wont make payroll or your payments, obviously you aren't doing something right? Freddy, yes forcing everyone to pay for their own health care coverage OR face a fine...what a terrible idea. I would of thought this would please some of you nay saying Republicans who hate to see anyone getting anything for free. This bill is basically saying that at one point or another EVERYONE will need healthcare and therefore everyone should be covered and everyone should pay something. It just goes to show that the right cannont be pleased!
red, I would suggest you "walk in someone else's shoes" B4 you comment. I never said teachers don't work hard--remember I have family members who are teachers. And until you have actually hired people,produced jobs, created a service or product, dealt with government agencies, paid suppliers, collected from people owing you $$$, swept the floors of your business, emptied the garbage, dry the tears of your employees, generate a customer base,etc.; don't tell me "obviously you aren't doing something right".Remember how the economy works in a free society; government does not creat anything. It lives to tax both you and me. The difference we may have, is what you think govt. should provide for a society and what I feel is necessary Govt service.
Well No One it just sounded to me like you were putting down a teachers job and suggesting they had great bennis??? How are you to know that I don't work hard and do all of the things you have listed?? I'll do you one better...I have done both jobs!! I just know/understand that in a civilized society that grows in the numbers that we have...when the population grows as quickly as it has, so will the govt. I don't hear you all complaining about the govt when someone comes to put your house fire out, or when you call the police for something. If only the private insurance companies would of regulated themselves huh?? Shucks....
Mr. Tester should count the population in Montana and he would find there aren't 100's of thousands of us to loose our farms due to medical bills.When it comes down to it there are about 8 million folks nation wide that want medical insurance not the 40 million the democrats clam.
