More on How Businesses Are Out to Get Obama
— Dave in Texas

Man, those sneaky businesses, scheduling their benefits open enrollment periods before an election.

Apparently, there is a large number of people who bought the lines about “bending the cost curve down.” My point is this: As people go through benefits enrollment, and come to realize that the expiration dates have been reached on Obama’s promises, they will probably not look too charitably at the party that railroaded this through congress. At that point, the elections will be less than a month away.

October surprise?

It's seems as though corporations will go to any length to undermine Democrats in this election, including a calendar fiscal year.

I'm callin it the Gregorian conspiracy.

Sept. 30 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. economy grew at a 1.7 percent annual rate in the second quarter, marking the start of a slowdown in growth that has concerned the Federal Reserve.

“We have a slow-growing economy,” said Michael Feroli, chief U.S. economist at JPMorgan Chase & Co. in New York. “What we’re getting will do nothing to bring down the unemployment rate. The improvement in the labor market is very slow.”

 

Looks like GDP is out to get Barry too.

3 We'll get the good (!) news about increases in our coverage premiums and other fees in October. The early scuttlebutt is that premiums will increase between 13% and 40+%, depending upon your coverage. We're a Fortune 500 company with sites around the country, so this manner of "spreading the wealth" should redound to Obi-Won's and the Dim's credit come November 2..

EFF Sues Newspaper Chain’s Copyright Troll

Righthaven, the Las Vegas-based copyright troll, may have sued one website too many. The Electronic Frontier Foundation hit the company with a lawsuit Monday alleging Righthaven is abusing copyright law by suing for excerpting or posting newspaper articles without permission.

[ . . . ]

San Francisco’s EFF, which has been shopping for one of the cases to take, has agreed to defend user-generated Democratic Underground, a site that says it provides “political satire and commentary for Democrats.”

It took me a while to get insurance but i finally got it at the rate i wanted. I had been rejected but reapplied with doctors notes, etc etc. I jumped through all the hoops. Well three months into it I get a letter saying they are applying for a rate increase. I am assuming everyones insurer is applying for a rate increase.

This was a f*cking debacle of epic proportions.

Costs are going up, large companies are dropping their plans, the elderly can't continue to see their doctors because the doctors are either dumping their medicare patients or not accepting new ones. Small companies are firing employees to get un the 50 employee cutoff line which means they don;t have to buy insurance or face a penalty.

You know, every time some new law is enacted that infringes upon civil liberties the common retort is usually, "If you're not doing anything wrong then you don't have anything to worry about."

36 I thought Obama was all about health care for the poor and elderly, and the Dems spent their time creating jobs and helping the poor.  Yeah, not so much:

(link)From December 2008 to December 2009, Medicaid enrollment rose by nearly 3.7 million people, the biggest 12-month increase since the early days of the program's implementation, the report found. That accompanied a surge in demand for other low-income assistance. Nearly 12 million households received food stamps last year, a record.

Nearly every state - 48 in all - took some action to limit Medicaid spending last year, and most plan more cuts next year. Although they didn't reduce eligibility, Kaiser found that states took steps to restrict the scope of coverage:

- A record 20 states placed restrictions on benefits, and 14 plan new restrictions next year. Arizona, California, Hawaii and Massachusetts eliminated some or all dental coverage. Other states limited medical imaging, therapies, supplies and personal care.

- Thirty-nine states cut or froze payments to hospitals, doctors and other service providers, and most plan another round next year. Medicaid payment rates are already so low that in many states it's hard to find doctors who will accept the coverage.

- Eighteen states placed limits on long-term care services, and 10 plan additional limits next year.

The recession officially ended in mid-2009, but the Kaiser study indicates its ill effects will take a while longer to wear off.

Lol.. well, a corporation try's it's best to convince you to give it money in return for a product or a service.  Sometimes they don't always highlight all the terms and conditions for you, and yes sometimes they use questionable tactics.  Sometimes the product turns out to be substandard.  But then you always have the choice of not giving them any money next time around. 

The government on the other hand takes your money regardless of your wishes and then spends it on the stupidest crap imaginable, because it's not their money.  There is not accounting, no oversight, just abuse after abuse after abuse.  And the best part?  You have no choice, they take your money one way or the other.  They are going to keep taking your money and if you refuse you go to jail.

So to paraphrase a line from another movie of questionable cinematic reputation, in comparison corporations are like the diet coke of evil.. lol

The nerve of some people wanting to start a business and provide a decent service and/or product while providing for themselves and their families.  Madness, isn't it?

When I was in HS, one moonbat history teacher who tried to explain to me how corporations control our lives.  WTH?

 Sure, corporations try to entice us to buy this brand of shoes or food, but in the end, they cannot force us to buy their products (well, they can't unless said business got into an unholy alliance with the government where you have to use their service/product to satisfy some regulation).  However, the government can and does control our lives by regulation and taxation.  Try to not comply with filing your taxes next year, and you'll soon discover how much power the federal (and other tiers) of government have over your life.  Ask Wesley Snipes about the IRS in particular.

Say goodbye to benefits and hello to doing your own withholding.

What tax revolt?

that is an upside that never occured to me.

If you're a 1099 you are responsible for paying all the taxes and the companies medicare and social secuirty withholding.

So instead of paying just the employees 6.2% Social Security Witholding and the 1.45% Medicare Witholding,  you will also being paying the companies share of that too.

So 7.65%  just became 15.3% for every worker.

 

Normally the company offsets this buy paying the contractor a higher hourly rate by than the employee, but i don't forsee that happening when companies move large portions of their employees to 1099 status.

Sept. 30 (Bloomberg) -- Homes in the foreclosure process sold at an average 26 percent discount in the second quarter as almost one-fourth of all U.S. transactions involved properties in some stage of mortgage distress, according to RealtyTrac. Inc. 

“We’re still clearly building up more distressed inventory,” Rick Sharga, RealtyTrac’s senior vice president, said in a telephone interview. “That will either put downward pressure on prices or keep them from going up.”

Posted by: DocJ at September 30, 2010 10:39 AM (AWzOz)

Funny you should say that. I am currently reading "The Worst Hard Time" by Timothy Egan. It was recommended by one of the Morons in one of the Monty Sunday Book threads.

It tells the story of the hard times that the farmers in the panhandle country had at the start of the depression and into the dust bowl.

The parallels with the start of the great depression and today are simply frightening. History is repeating itself.

What is even more amazing is the author, a liberal NYT reporter, is even spouting the code of today in the time frame then. Evil Republican President refused to help the poor farmer (Hoover) and FDR/New Deal the best thing since sliced bread.

I am only halfway through the book and it is a good read if you discount the typical liberal propaganda and read up on how bad the people really had it back then.

The whiners of today need to have this shoved down their throats.

114 22 - Sorry if this has already been answered:

No, the IRS doesn't set that, your company does.  Technically, Open Enrollment can be any time during the year.  Most companies have it May/June for benefits to start in July or October/November for benefits to start in January.  There are rules stating how often they can change that, and how to handle "short" or "long" years (basically, if someone doing OE in June wanted to move down to November, or vice versa), and a bunch of other regulations I don't remember (used to work for a COBRA/FSA Administrator).  So, in effect, having set Open Enrollment for October/November, most companies will just keep those dates because it's too much of a pain to change even if they wanted to do so.

I believe it was Reagan who wanted to eliminate withholding taxes, and make taxpayers pay the whole thing on April 15th.  THAT would get everybody's attention in a ny minute.  By accepting withholding of your pay, you don't notice how badly you are being bled by the leeches.

142 135 Dunkirk - I though Obamacare got rid of those medical savings accounts? Posted by: Jean at September 30, 2010 11:33 AM (9usBU) Not quite. They are dropping the FSA allowed amount to 2500 from 5000, but the HSAs are still ok. I think I remember something about FSAs going away completely later on, but meh. FSAs are kinda dumb with the whole "use it or lose it mechanic", and HSAs beat them on that alone (HSAs carry over to next year). We had a meeting to go over our new benefit options last week, and the HMO/PPO stuff is all gone. It's now all this "Consumer Driven" crap, and the HSA version appears to be the best of the 3 options. It all still equates to more out of pocket expenses. Premiums stay about the same, but you pay more for each service you consume. No more simple co-pays.

143 My company sent out our benefits reminder this week.  In it it stated,"Due to the Health Care reform OTC drugs are no longer available using the Medical Spending Accounts." 

While I knew this because I actually pay attention to politics, the vast majority of my co-workers did not realize this was part of the bill.  Many people use OTC allergy medicine, pain relievers, antacids, and other meds that they pay for the spending accounts.

Our benefits costs went up due to the bill, too.

Democrats HATE privately run corporations.

Vilification!  hate!  hate!  ridicule!  propaganda!

DEMOCRATS HATE PRIVATE ENTERPRISE.
Democrats want to ass fuck the nation and give it all to the communist union thug war-lords.

True story.

My friends, D is for drive, while R is for reverse.  You don't want to go in reverse do you? 

 

Oh, shit!

Wrong metaphor.


"D" is for Dive.

"R" is for Return to the surface so we can catch our breath.


It's obviously a submarine metaphor cleverly disguised as a '58 Edsel...
