Citing health care law, Boeing pares employee plan - October 18, 2010
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20101018/ap_on_bi_...

WASHINGTON Aerospace giant Boeing is joining the list of companies that say the new health care law could have a potential downside for their workers.

In a letter mailed to employees late last week, the company cited the overhaul as part of the reason it is asking some 90,000 nonunion workers to pay significantly more for their health plan next year. A copy of the letter was obtained Monday by The Associated Press.

Boeing said annual deductibles and copayments will increase for all its plans next year.

YOU LIE! Obama promised his Mandatory Government Health Care System would reduce costs for everyone, especially those making less than $250k/year.

Are you trying to imply that ...*GASP*... Obama lied to us?

Nah, Bark would never do that.

Did you scroll down for the Shillary photo? It looks like someone just saw their new insurance premium.

Hey numbnuts, I see you are getting your panties all bunched up.
Dude Bush wanted to allow the people to choose where they put their money for retirement. But you and your fck'd up demolosers stopped it with a filibuster.
But as usual you over look such details.
No, bush's idea was to have it invested in stock markets and bonds, but in individual accounts. Taking Oct '07 to Mar '09 into account, it would be better just to totally eliminate the system to include stopping any checks going out.

If you did not plan to live without SS and Medicare it just ain't my problem.

Gallup Finds U.S. Unemployment at 10.0% in Mid-October - October 18, 2010
http://www.gallup.com/poll/143714/Gallup-Find...

Gallup's unemployment measure showed a sharp increase to double digits at the end of September, before seasonal adjustment. The mid-October measurement suggests the resulting double-digit unemployment rate has been maintained during the first half of the current month. In turn, this suggests that the government will report an increase in the U.S. unemployment rate for October.

In this regard, Gallup modeling suggests the government's unemployment rate report for October will be in the 9.7% to 9.9% range when it is released Nov. 5. The government's last report showed the U.S. unemployment rate at 9.6% in September on a seasonally adjusted basis, as Gallup anticipated.

In addition to seasonal adjustments, the official unemployment rate is likely to be held down by a continued exodus of people from the workforce. It is easy for potential workers to become discouraged when the unemployment rate is expected to remain above 9% through the end of 2011.

Very good posting, but a Little off on your math- it's $1.3 million per job, but again,it's been more than a year, where's these $1.3 million dollar jobs he managed to come up with? Oh, that's right, he has to have federal employees set aside the budget, and anything over $2500.00 has to go to competitive bid, so more federal employees can handle the solicitations, others to write the contracts, others to research and write the technical aspects of the Statement of Work, others to oversee the quality control of the project, and the list goes on, quite a cushie guarantee of more job security for federal employees.
What can you expect from someone whose only job was a community organizer overpaid by the taxpayers, and used the taxpayers money to pay for his projects. Talk about clueless about what how the world really spins.

Well, it is official. Bark has spent us into debt an extra $3 trillion since the day he took office.

With three trillion dollars, you could buy 150 aircraft carriers such as the USS Ronald Reagan and outfit each of them with 45 of the newest fighter jet, the F-22 Raptor.

If you were to stack $1000 bills in a tight stack,$3 trillion would be 203.7 miles tall. That is stacked, not laid end to end and those are 1000 dollar bills! Grover Clevelands! Of course, it would be hard to make that stack since as of last year, there were only 165,372 of them left which only adds up to a paltry $165,372,000.

Thanks for the debt, Bark, and to think that you still have another 2 and 1/4 years to go...

Wahahahaha Hench. So its your position that Bush, having forwarded a few schekels to Detroit right at the end of his term, somehow OBLIGATED Obama the Telepromper Stooge to take over the company, to make it a US taxpayer owned company??!

ROFLMAO at Hench.

BTW, Hench, here is an inconvenient truth on the $3 trillion increase in debt that The Kenyan and Pelosi/Reid have saddled us with. And, Hench, WHAT DO WE HAVE TO SHOW FOR THIS $3 trillion?

Almost 10% unemployment, little or no "investment," and millions of private sector jobs lost.

Funny, I thought The Kenyan told us the "stimulus" would create millions of jobs and keep unemployment low. I thought the Kenyan ran against high Bush deficits.

Seems The Kenyan has made everything worse. Seems the voters realize that The Kenyan is a fake, a fraud, and a phony. An empty suit speech reading huckster. A joke. A lackey. A lazy narcissist who has never held a real job.

FUBO and GTFO. Phase I is in just a few more days.... Phase II (the GTFO stage) begins immediately after the conclusion of Phase I.

It took the nation hundreds of years to amass $10 trillion in debt. It took Bark the Kenyan and Pelosi less than 2 years to increase it to $13 trillion, with no end in sight.

At this rate, Bark the Kenyan would increase the national debt by 50% in his first (and lets hope last) term of office.

No wonder they talk about him like he's a dog.

I noted that the article you posted, in your previous post, about the debt that Bark has run up, came from ABC. Even the main stream media is jumping on him about it. The article also noted that GWB ran up 4.9 trillion in 8 years while Bark has run up 3 trillion in 1 year and 9 months. We all thought GWB was out of control but Bark just puts him to shame in the out of control category.

Are you "having a great time" watching the Dems self destruct in a frenzy of finger pointing at.... Bush, Republicans, the Chamber of Commerce, Fox TV, Rush Limbaugh, the Tea Party, Health Insurance executives, Wall STreet, the banks, "big" oil, the evil rich, etc.??

"I am having a great time" watching the Dems in mayhem and panic.

Unfortunately, though, the incompetence of Obama the Teleprompter STooge is costing future generations dearly, and his incompetence in pursuing his "comprehensive Afghanistan strategy" (more empty words from Bark the Kenyan) is costing the lives and limbs of our brave soldiers. Obama should be impeached:

"To the soldiers and Marines risking their lives in Afghanistan, restrictions on their ability to aggressively attack the Taliban have led to another enormous frustration stalking morale: the fear that the Karzai government, with the prodding of the administration of President Obama, will negotiate a peace with the Taliban that wastes all the sacrifices by the U.S. here..."

Some GOP House Leaders Push Compromise

Some of these guys just don't get it. Compromising, over the years, is what has gotten the Republican party in trouble in the past. I would rather see stalemate rather than let the Democrats slowly chip away at the Constitution.

Bush's fiscal legacy is poor, to be sure, but Obama's is much, much worse.

But, lets keep in mind that Bush inherited a crashed stock market, which was the biggest issue by far when he took office, and in recessions we run deficits (just about by definition.)

Then we experienced the 9/11 terrorist attacks just 9 months into his term (and the Bush haters blame Bush while fully absolving the Clinton Administration - lol).

Then, he had the costs of the Medicare expansion, and the huge cleanup costs of Katrina, and of course the cost of the tax cuts and the wars.

Fiscally, Bush didn't do a good job, but its explainable. At least New Orleans got more or less fixed, and we won in Iraq.

What does Obama have to show for his massive deficits? Nothing. 10% unemployment. Projections (his own) that show $ trillion plus deficits for eternity.

Bark the Kenyan is a joke.
