    Just curious to ask what everyone's outlook is on this new health bill and how do you think it will affect us?

    check under "Current Events" and there is a thread titled "Government Healthcare". All the comments are there. As of this hour, there is no new health bill yet.....Senate needs to vote on it first.

    After the Senate passes their bill, then they get together with the house and work out the common version of what they want to pass.

    Usually, when open discussions take place, this can take weeks if not many months. Problem is them trying to cram it down our throats as fast as possible so they can get all this new money comming in.

    When politicians tell me that they really need me to allow them to do something this quick for my own good, that means vasaline stock will double. Kinda like the swine flue "epidemic".

  4. Wow, you got a lot of negative rep in a hurry

    I would love to attach a lie detector to every house member and ask them if they actually read those 1990 pages before voting. I'd bet those needles would shoot sky high as they all lie about it.

    Just remember. When they talk about taxing the ^$^$ out of "Cadillac Insurance Plans", they are talking about US!!!!

    Just a little something to ponder....

    In the event of war, declaration of emergency, imposition of mandatory
    economic controls, the adoption of a National Health Program or any
    Congressional or Federal Agency action which has a significantly adverse
    effect on the financial structure of the Employer, during the life of this
    Agreement, either party may reopen the same upon sixty (60) days� written
    notice and request renegotiation of the provisions of this Agreement directly
    affected by such action. There shall be no limitation of time for such written
    notice. Upon the failure of the parties to agree in such negotiations, within
    sixty (60) days thereafter, either party shall be permitted all lawful economic
    recourse to support its request for revisions. If governmental approval of
    revisions should become necessary, all parties will cooperate to the utmost to
    attain such approval. The parties agree that the notice provided herein shall
    be accepted by all parties as compliance with the notice requirements of
    applicable law, so as to permit economic action at the expiration thereof.

    I believe the current version of the health bill will not make it through the senate.
  13. I agree and am worried about the "compromise"

    I think you will see a wage freeze in 2013 in lieu of paying for a portion of our health care.

    You definitely see a wage cut if the congress now passes a bill requiring all companies to offer at least 7 days paid sick leave.

    I don't know about that, we already get 5 paid sick days. I'm not saying that wage cuts aren't a possibility, I just don't think that will be the driving factor. The state of the economy in 2013 will dictate the contract more than other issue.

    The compromise is gonna hurt.

    Local 710 out of chicago has never had sick days. If you were sick you just missed a days pay.

    Isn't the optional vacation week a payoff for 5 sick days? I'm in 710 and that's what I was always told.
