Sometimes I get irritated at my own laziness. But after all, I’m retired!
Here’s an outrageous item I meant to post over 3 weeks ago, but let slide. Thankfully my bro-in-law Adam reminded me to get going on this.
This 1099 provision in the massive health care bill is madness. Apparently it means my (and your) SS# or TIN (business ID#) could be floating around in many vendors’ hands. The opportunities for mischief are boundless.
I guess the only good news is that — if the 1099′s are filed on paper rather than electronically — the IRS will be overwhelmed with paperwork — complete with many errors. Crushed, actually.
Like our pension system, Medicare, Social Security and even Medical, the new healthcare bill is unsustainable. There is simply not enough income made in this country to tax it into existence. The only possible way to begin to pay for it would be massive cuts in the quality of health care. Rationing, poor quality and eventual death panels will replace what has been a health care system that was the envy of the world.
Lots of prayers from all across the country were answered last night with the victory in Mass. of Scott Brown to the Senate. Prayers that have been lifted for several months during the obamacare debates can now be turned into thanksgiving.
While Brown is not the end-all, be-all of Republicanism, the victory is important and ironic because it was Teddy’s death, leaving the seat that helped put the death-nell on communistic healthcare which was Kennedy’s dream come true.
We don’t know where Brown will fall on all the issues we will face, but this one is a critical point in our nation’s future as a Republic.
I am hosting the Rick Amato show tonight from 9-11 PM on KCBQ, 1170 AM. My first guest will be Anita Moncrief, a former ACORN leader who defected a few months ago. She will detail how ACORN is a criminal enterprise; how it works exclusively with Democrats, and the role it played in pressuring banks to make loans to high risk recipients. Indeed, Obama worked with ACORN to create the mortgage crisis we find ourselves in today.
WASHINGTON. D.C. – With unemployment rate rising to 10.2 percent (crossing the double-digit threshold for the first time since 1983), representing a loss of 190,000 jobs, House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Ranking Member Darrell Issa (R-CA) questioned the sincerity of the Obama Administration and Congressional Democrats today who claim they are “saving or creating” jobs yet continue to advance policies that kill jobs, raise taxes, punish small businesses and adds to our national debt. H.R. 3962, a 1,990 page bill costing nearly $1 trillion that raises taxes, raises health care costs, punishes California and adds to our national debt while hurting America’s seniors, families and small businesses:
With ten months now in the White House, just how do San Diegan voters feel about President Obama’s job performance and policy/political agenda? The well-respected Field Research Corporation just released a statewide opinion poll today which included a breakout of San Diego County respondents. According to the poll:
* San Diegan voters are significantly less supportive (48% approve/43% disapprove) of Obama’s handling of the U.S. economy than overall state voters (60% approve/35% disapprove). Only one other region was less supportive of Obama’s economic leadership – Orange County (40% approve/56% disapprove).
