Teachers union leaders around the county are requesting that Berkshire Health Group close a gap in health benefits for the young adult children who aged out of their parents' plan in advance of a new law that will eventually mandate their coverage.

true, true. I have a feeling come January, it will be a moot point. It's the leftists against the liberals. Who will win? Well, I think...that..the leftists will hold the "insurable" over the liberals heads..vs..the lifetime cap clause. leftists are smart enough to know that they wont walk away from the table without something worth crowing about. So, even if it does happen that way, its still a win-win,For those that do have coverage though.

The worst part of the plan is allowing people as old as 26 to stay on the family plan. Just because these young people live at home until they're 30 doesn't mean that can't get off their butts and get a job with coverage.
As for covering the young children, let them buy insurance for their kids until they are covered.
This country is getting more and more screwed up everyday. Even GE wants $25 million in tax credits to not lay off people at the Lynn plant. In other words, they want the state to pay their salaries! It's nuts.

if they get what they want can they agree to help unload the dead weight teachers that can't or won't teach but want to suck down an easy paycheck?

oh yeah, all you Workers STAND UP!! Don't let these pesky people ruin the country. Get out there and protest... make sure no, low-life worker asks for any more than they deserve....
After all, the employers will always see fit to provide for those low wage, complaining workers.
And that Union stuff --- don't it smack of socialism.

How many store-fronts that bought into the artsy-fartsy crap that Pittsfield City Hall pushed last year have closed? Take a walk down North St. today then answer.
And more everyday..... Pittsfield taxpayers should be grateful for tourists or try to sell and then flee.

Lazy government-coddle union-subsidized twaddle-butt bimbo-brained bozo-nozed ignorant. That is what I believe the TEA, NEA, and the Pittsfield Untited Teachers Together are PUTTs. Don;'t like your job? Quit. Do Something else to earn a living. Go on welfare like most of your student's Mommys. Babysitters are cheaper than you all.

' Put the responsibility back onto the parents and releive the teachers.' >>>......
