I can't recall the companies that were increasing salaries. I believe I posted the information before but will look for it again. However, it only makes common sense the salary increases come from the funds the company was using to pay for the employee's insurance.
Now, Darden Restaurants, Sears, IBM, Time Warner and other corporations are putting retirees into private exchanges but they are providing a voucher to buy coverage. Walgreens is doing the exact same thing with ALL of it's employees.
IMO, Lois's posting that her husband would have "No more employer-based insurance after January 2015" isn't necessarily a bad thing at all. It's only a bad thing if his company isn't going to compensate him in some way. A half truth is still a lie.

First of all, it isn't the "rich" who are paying 86% of all income taxes. Using 2009 figures as reported by the national Taxpayers Union, the top 1% pays 36.73% of total income taxes which is comparable to the percentage of overall income they represent. The top 25%(those with incomes above $66,193) pay 87.30%. That is not "the rich!.
It really sad fact is that nearly half of the population does not make enough money to pay income tax while the Romney's of the world only pay a 14% income tax rate.
You're damn right the parasitic top 1% are not paying their fair share.
the Obama"rich" are the top 2% and they pay far more than 36.73% of the total...

...the top 5%, above $155K, pay 58.66% of the total...or eleven times their share

those between 10%($112K) and 25%($66K) pay about 17%, slightly more than their share...

the bottom 75% pay almost nothing...

"Obama spends $600 million on rail projects that benefit private companies"

Blah, blah, blah. Get over it.

The federal government has always ponied up public dollars, especially when matched by private-sector contributions. It's an extremely common form of federal funding.

"It took years of negotiations to persuade the Union Pacific Railroad to allow the construction of the Chisholm Trail Parkway toll road over the Davidson yard in west Fort Worth - and also to allow construction of a new Division Street rail bridge over Texas 360 in Arlington. Those projects also benefitted from tens of millions of federal dollars spent to improve rail infrastructure - and those agreements were inked when President George W. Bush was in office."

Boy you Teabaggers are SURE impatient for OBAMCARE to get off the ground!
He's got three years.
He HAD three year ALREADY, pinhead! THAT'S THE POINT!

We knew it wouldn't work NO MATTER HOW MUCH TIME was poured into it, but you socialists were hell-bent. IT WILL NEVER WORK.

Just like your Lord Obama KNEW it would force millions to lose their insurance and lied about it anyway. Just like anybody with half a brain knows IT WILL COST MORE AND PROVIDE LESS.

But since you worthless parasites are hell-bent to get what you believe will be YET ANOTHER ENTITLEMENT because you are too pathetic to provide for your own needs, you will fight to the death until you get more free stuff delivered to you.

I've proposed it before, I'll suggest it again. I think it is only fair that if conservative, taxpaying citizens are going to be forced to continue the free ride to worthless losers on the left, we should be entitled to SOMETHING from you leeches.

I propose every leftie giving every conservative a BJ once a month.

EMILY MILLER: Liberal Logic – Drag Queens Are Good Role Models

The left has the power of Hollywood to push its skewed morality onto the rest of the nation. Parents struggle to keep their children from learning from TV, movies and toys what is right and wrong, good and bad, appropriate and inappropriate. Unfortunately, there is always another liberal trying to foist bad morals on our children.

In a column in the widely-read Huffington Post, Joy Martin-Malone, argues that men dressed in women’s clothes are better role models for young girls than Disney princess dolls. The mother of twin daughters writes that she pushes her children to model themselves after drag queens because “they are artists. They are able to conceptualize an idea and transform themselves — without the help of magic.”

Like I say to the television when one of those ghosts-are-real shows is on, show me the ghost.
Show me the subsidy to oil companies.
Subsidies to oil companies is an urban myth. They don't exist. There is no such thing as a subsidy to oil companies in the United States.
Or, you can show us those mythical subsidies.

Kevin Jennings, "Safe Schools Czar" for the Obama administration, praised gay rights icon Harry Hay and claimed he was “inspired” by him.

So...what’s the problem?

The problem is that Harry Hay, despite whatever else he did in his life, was deeply involved with NAMBLA, the North American Man/Boy Love Association — a group which advocates for legalization of sexual relations between adult men and underage boys. In other words, it’s a pro-pedophilia group.
