No compassion for the middle class. Union fat cats need more money to pay for their health insurance and to make donations to the party of lib loons.
(Reuters) - The United Auto Workers union is considering hiking membership dues by 25 percent as it faces dwindling membership and rising costs, a top UAW official and several union sources said.
Currently, the unions take two hours of wages per month as dues. They want to increase that by 25% to 2 and a half hours. Every time a union member got a raise in pay in the past, union dues went up. Now the fat cats want to raise the dues even though there has been no raise in pay.
We were attacked (in the Gulf of Tonkin)
I am not a #$%$
Read my lips - No new taxes
I did not have sex with that woman... Miss Lewinsky
I will have the most transparent administration in history.
The stimulus will fund shovel-ready jobs.
The stimulus will keep unemployment under 6%
I am focused like a laser on creating jobs.
There will be no lobbying or lobbyists in the White House.
The IRS is not targeting anyone.
It was a spontaneous riot about a movie.
If I had a son.
I will put an end to the type of politics that "breeds division, conflict and cynicism".
You didn't build that!
I will restore trust in Government.
The Cambridge cops acted stupidly.
The public will have 5 days to look at every bill that lands on my desk
It's not my red line - it is the world's red line.
Whistle blowers will be protected in my administration.
We got back every dime we used to rescue the banks and auto companies, with interest.
I am not spying on American citizens.
obamaCare will be good for America
You can keep your family doctor.
Premiums will be lowered by $2500.
If you like it, you can keep your current healthcare plan
I did not lie to the American public about obamacare, (I only read what was on the teleprompter.)
obamacare will not add a cent to the deficit.
It's just like shopping at Amazon
I knew nothing about "Fast and Furious" gunrunning to Mexican drug cartels
I knew nothing about IRS targeting conservative groups
I knew nothing about what happened in Benghazi
I never knew my uncle from Kenya who is in the country illegally and that was arrested and told to leave the country over 20 years ago
And, I have never lived with that uncle. (He finally admitted 12-05-2013 that he DID know his uncle and that he DID live with him. and the biggest one of all . . .
"I, barrack hussein obama, pledge to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America."
Now, I ask you, who would know if they were misled, the guy who says he didn't mislead or the people who say they were misled? Me thinks Sebelius and obama are full of cacapoopoo.
"I simply read what was on the teleprompter."
Fox News Reporter: Did you put it on the teleprompter?
obama: You are a racist hater.
Fox News Reporter: But you did put it on the teleprompter right?
obama: No comment
Health insurance for everybody? Si. Health care for everybody? No way.
Only a fool would believe that you can provide more health care for more people for less money. It simply can't be. And now we hear of doctors retiring early, doctors not accepting obamacare patients, hospitals being excluded from insurance plans resulting in fewer health care providers, and medicaid enrollments increasing daily. If you call death panels health care for all, then you have health care for all.
obamacare, the gift that keeps on taking (from your bank account). This is priceless!!!!!!!! LOL

For the second week in a row, the Washington Healthplanfinder website is down, and it's causing problems for people who are dealing with billing issues. Some of them say the website is mistakenly debiting their accounts.
Shannon Bruner of Indianola logged on to her checking account Monday morning, and found she was almost 800 dollars in the negative.
“The first thing I thought was, ‘I got screwed,’” she said.
The Bruners enrolled for insurance on the Washington Healthplanfinder website, last October. They say they selected the bill pay date to be December 24th. Instead the Washington Healthplanfinder drafted the 835 dollar premium Monday.
Josh Bruner started his own business this year as an engineering recruiter. They said it’s forced them to pay a lot of attention to their bills and their bank accounts.
“Big knot in my gut because we're trying to keep it together,” said Shannon Bruner. “It's important to me that this kind of stuff doesn't happen.”
They're not alone.
One viewer emailed KING 5 saying, "They drafted my account this morning for a second time."
Another woman on Facebook with a similar problem commented, "We are all in the same boat."
“We've got to figure out how to get money to pay the bills for the next week or two until we have another check come through,” said Josh Bruner. “It's just crazy.”
This means more charging stations will be needed.

Engineering breakthroughs like the Tesla Model S may be burning up the electric car market (figuratively and literally), but they’re leaving drivers cold and under-powered in the face of Old Man Winter.
Cold temperatures have adverse effects on batteries, slowing down the incoming and outgoing flow of energy and inevitably losing some in the process. The 250-mile average range of an electric car in normal climate conditions can see its performance reduced by 70-miles on a single charge in average winter conditions. The colder it gets, the shorter the range.
Not only that, the average winter driver tends to turn up the heat — a function that also puts a draw on the battery uncommon during other seasons.
A Swedish study found that the planet was warmer in ancient Roman times and the Middle Ages than today, challenging the mainstream idea that man-made greenhouse gas emissions are the main drivers of global warming.
The study, by scientist Leif Kullman, analyzed 455 “radiocarbon-dated mega-fossils” in the Scandes mountains and found that tree lines for different species of trees were higher during the Roman and Medieval times than they are today. Not only that, but the temperatures were higher as well.
In the same vein, scientists at St Louis University have found two active volcanoes beneath the Antarctic ice shield. The heat from the volcanoes has caused significant ice melting.
Enrollment records for close to 15,000 HealthCare.gov shoppers were not transmitted to the insurance plans they selected, according to a preliminary federal estimate to be released Saturday. (And since this is an obama administration estimate, you can be sure the real number is much higher.) HO, HO, HO ! ! ! ! !
CO2, CO2 ! ! ! We need more CO2, dammit.

Two pregnant women, children and seniors were among the 270 passengers who sat freezing for eight hours on a train after it lost power in Labrador Friday morning, as temperatures plummeted below - 30 C.
Tshiuetin Rail Transportation rail conductor Joe Shecanapish was unable to bring back power to the train, which was heading to Sept-Iles, Que. from Schefferville, Que.
"We did everything we can. We couldn't do it. Water froze, toilets froze, everything," he said.
Shecanapish said they tried to squeeze people into a small cabin to warm up. He said some blankets were provided to passengers.
During the ordeal, temperatures ranged from - 26 C to - 33 C.
The train stopped about 65 kilometres from Labrador City, with about eight hours to go before its final destination. It was hours before the town was notified about the train.
"Minus forty. It's like, hey. Right now my feet are still cold," said Simon Einish, who was travelling with his family to Ontario.
Some of the passengers were taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure, but there were no major injuries.
Fire Chief Joe Power, who was one of the first to the train, said the passengers were lucky the train stopped where it did
"It could have been a lot worse this evening. They could have been 100 km or so up the track with no help."
Five buses transported passengers to Labrador City, where they spent the night at Menihek High School.
Other passengers were taken to neighbouring community Fermont, Que., to spend the night in bunkhouses.
People are trapped in their houses, can't get out to shop. And it's the lib loons' fault. If they didn't remove all the carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, it would have been warmer and the snow and ice would be rain. Remember this, kiddies, the lib loon's ruined your Christmas. HO HO HO
Sun activity at century low.
5 to 6 feet of snow predicted for parts of New York.
Can anyone spare some extra carbon dioxide for the poor folks in New York?
Scientists may have figured out why Romans wore togas and the global warming theorists are not going to be pleased. A new study by Swiss scientists finds the earth was warmer during Roman and Medieval times than it is today, which indicates that greenhouse gases may not be the driving force behind the modern global warming trend. (Boy, those chariots sure created some serious climate change issues.)
The study, by scientist Leif Kullman, analyzed 455 “radiocarbon-dated mega-fossils” in the Scandes Mountains and found that tree lines for different species of trees were higher during the Roman and Medieval times than they are today. Not only that, but the temperatures were higher as well. Sorry, soup, I didn't mean to ruin your day. LOL
He/she doesn't want to hear about obamacare.
Turns out that the allegedly successful Connecticut exchange gave 2,408 purchasers inaccurate information about every single individual health-care plan they looked at:
More than 2,400 Connecticut customers who bought health plans on Access Health CT were given incorrect information about their insurance plans, in some cases underestimating the maximum out-of-pocket by at least $4,000. April Fool, suckas !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL
soupy's not going to like this.
Planetary temperatures aren’t cooperating, nor is the rate of sea level rise, and now even West Antarctica seems to be gouging James Hansen in the eye.
Researchers at Washington University in St. Louis have discovered a chain of active volcanoes under the West Antarctic ice sheet.
This is interesting because West Antarctica is the region that Global Warming hysterics (the Gang Green) point to as “proof” that Global Warming is happening to the southernmost polar region. Now we see there may be another reason for ice loss in WAIS.
many get refunds even though they paid no tax.
Soupy, tell us again why this is fair. LOL
"Computer Climate change models have predicted extreme weather events, meaning there will be extreme cold along with extreme heat"
Before it was debunked, it was called global warming. Now the worms call it "climate change". The fact is the climate is always changing. Another fact is carbon dioxide is necessary for life to exist on the planet. Another fact is carbon dioxide is not a pollutant. Let's suppose we had a carbon tax (that's what this really all about. Lib loons love taxes ya know, as long as they don't have to pay them.), how would the money collected be used to prevent climate change? Come on, soupy, this is your chance to sparkle. Let's hear what ya got.
