Gaussianinterger...A pest control business...bah, ha, bah, ha...pretty funny...
You won't find my business by "googling" me.
I know, I am a famous jazz artist....
allahisanidiot...You are wrong again...if I always used the word "won't" instead of "want" I would be ignorant. Same as the word "knifes" versus knives. That is not the case because 99.999% of the time I use the word "want" and "knives" correctly.
It is flattering that these are the only kinds of things you can ridicule me about from my writing.
It is evidence of your stupidity that a one-time error is translated into "ignorance" because it suits your petty, uncreative, uninformed writing style. That is what the left always does to obscure your absolute disregard for facts or logic.
Gaussianinterger... Do you ever do any research at all??
Here is the NEA's official position on Obamacare,
"NEA's 3.2 million members, including teachers, education support professionals, and higher education faculty, have long been strong supporters of the need for access to quality, affordable and comprehensive health care coverage for all residents of the United States."
Not only that, they have endorsed liberals over 90% of the time in elections. Also, teachers are almost 2/3 democrat/liberal from K-12 and over 80% of college professors.
Do you even understand numbers? I might have a spelling problem but that must have been the only class you were awake in. Oh,...let me rephrase that...I ended that sentence with a preposition..
No..that is not right because more to the point, the only reason we try to avoid ending a sentence in a preposition is because a lot of your readers will consider it to be bad practice. In actual fact, this rule is a throwback from Latin and has no place in English grammar....probably something you didn't know...again..google.
Let me make it simple enough for you and teachers to understand..when your plan is better than "90% of private plans" that means it is a "Cadillac" plan compared to the rest of us. If we compared it to Obama or congress, the teacher plan might just be a really nice Impala. It is still better than the average non-government person who is driving a yugo. (Oh my gosh..did I spell everything correctly...)(should I have put a ? mark there..or...)
The absolute dumbest thing you said, was that "Obamacare has nothing to do with the vote.." Duh, your joking... That is why costs are skyrocketing you dolt.. Any businessman will tell you, since Obamacare, private plans have gone up 20% or more. Just the fact that preexisting conditions are covered has done that much..
I have a business...I deal with this everyday..I know how much it takes to cover my employees and the what is responsible for the increase.
Stop writing before you lose the little bit of credibility you still have.
Gaussianinterger....Typos...that just shows how shallow and intellectually bankrupt you guys are to go on and on and on about a typo...
Do you ever address any facts? Ever? Oh my gosh, I didn't use exact syntax and grammar..
By the way, I will compare resumes, education, and brain pans with any of you people any time. You know who I am..Tim Price...and you can call me anytime.
Gaussianinterger....Just to show you that your track record of being wrong all the time is intact...
According to Education Next from BLS data..."We estimate from these data that the national average of annual employer insurance costs in 2012 was $8,559 for K–12 teachers, and $6,803 for private-sector professionals. The difference between the figures has increased since 2004. Annual employer insurance costs for K–12 teachers rose 67 percent, compared to 49 percent for private professionals. The gap between employer costs was just 12 percent in 2004 but rose to 26 percent by 2012."
I would say that most of those plans are "Cadillac" compared to most private plans.
You were saying....
allahisapissant...yea, yea...I am guilty of a typo...big deal. This stuff is so important, maybe I should hire an editor to catch my mistakes..like Cook. Did I spell "piss ant" correctly? I hope so..
Teabagmocker...you ought to "google" the definition before you use words over 4 letters. The only ad hominem comment made in these posts were from you.
Are you really that uneducated?...or just plain dumb?
Typical responses from the "I won't something free" crowd.
As far as hating goes, Cook is the only one that hates along with the rest of you education cheerleaders. You guys hate the rest of us because you don't care how bad it gets out in the real world for the people who pay teacher's salaries and benefits. This is basic, naked selfishness of teachers who want theirs no matter how bad it gets for the rest of us. They just don't care that everyone else is dealing with the Obamacare situation which, in part, was caused by liberal teacher organizations that supported it. If it is so great, why don't you teachers want to use it????????
The bottom line is NOT ONE...NOT ONE of you commenters even addressed the points I made.
Gaussianinter said, "This is not a Cadillac plan..." She said she could prove it but didn't. There plan is better than 90% of private plans period. To say anything different is dishonest.
allahyoungerbrother said something totally irrelevant about Rhonda Thurman. What an idiot.
Teabagmocker....I will address in the next installment.
Again, not one of these people addressed my points....so I guess they agree.
along with these insults about me googling "ad hominem" and what it means
This was probably the dumbest, most narcissistic, post that wimp Cook has written.
Where to start.....
First of all, why does someone we taxpayers PAY deserve special honors over and above anyone else? We "honor" them with Cadillac insurance, a great retirement, job security, and a easy, cushy job already. Not to mention A PAYCHECK.
Teaching is a "calling?" Give me a break...Yea, the calling is that "I don't want a real job, 2 month vacations, one month at Christmas and lifetime job security with almost no chance of being fired no matter how bad I do my job."
Teachers are "our most valuable elders.." What a stupid narcissistic statement. What about people who invent the things that make us live better, what about doctors, what about policemen and firemen and above all, what about businessmen who provide taxes and the jobs which provide other taxes to pay your inflated, benefits and salaries.
You damn liberals just had to have Obamacare but only want if for everyone else. This is the bed you liberals made. If I were a school board member, I would suggest doing away with insurance all together and let some of you superior individuals (teachers) get Obamacare. Then you might find out what the rest of us have to deal with that don't live in your little protected "governmentland" ivory tower.
Teachers...you don't want an idiot like Cook writing this kind of stuff. It makes your job harder and diminishes your stature because he makes you all look like narcissistic, self-aggrandizing, selfish, cry babies.
Believe me..this article made you all look bad. Why don't you guys go out and find you a small business person and thank them for providing the resources that keep you afloat. Yea...I won't hold my breath.
Bennett...I don't make comments on childish things like Santa Claus, the Easter bunny, the Tooth fairy, or...man made climate change. They are all myths.
Bennett you are in idiot.
