Unions: No tax on 'Cadillac' health plans
By Kevin Bogardus - 10/02/09 06:11 AM ET
Organized labor is turning to House Democrats to oppose a tax on high-cost insurance plans that is under consideration to help pay for healthcare reform.
Unions are blasting the idea in the Senate Finance Committee bill, as many union members would be affected because they either have expensive insurance to cover dangerous professions or negotiated for better benefits instead of higher wages.
Bill says 'tax' when Obama said 'not'

In the most contentious exchange of President Barack Obama’s marathon of five Sunday shows, he said it is “not true” that a requirement for individuals to get health insurance under a key reform plan now being debated amounts to a tax increase.
But he could look it up — in the bill.
Page 29, sentence one of the bill introduced by Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont) says: “The consequence for not maintaining insurance would be an excise tax.”
On WGTE, Carty and Sandy Isenberg discussed politics and whatnot on "Deadline Now."
It's amazing that this woman has any respect in the community to be asked to appear on the show, and why would Carty agree to appear on a program with this crook?
Ben Konop's aunt and direct connection to the "good ole boys network" then said that back in the day she and others on council used to have a certain "camaraderie" and were in it for the "greater good."
Good Lord! Did the gretaer good include a roof on her house?
Where is that Liberal screeching about 'bringing the troops home alive' and how all the Libs are "concerned" over Americans being "put in harms way"?
Where is that Indignance you Libs had with the Iraq war? Why aren't you protesting the surge in Afghanistan that is getting Americans KILLED AT A RECORD PACE?
Read it for yourselves, you warmongers.
Lucas County Commissioner and Mayoral candidate Ben Konop, who by running for mayor is warning us he is a liar, has his Wikipedia page protected from any truth. With his embarrassing video all over the internet, CNN, Comedy Central, and MSNBC, one would hope that a quick visit to Konop's Wiki page would provide some insight. The man has demonstrated a lack of character by breaking pledges. ( http://thetommorrissey.com/toledo-free-press/ben-konop-honor-your-word/ )
However, the Controversies page has been removed more than once by user "BKonop." The man is a LC Commissioner, running for Mayor, and is editing his Wikipedia page - talk about qualified.
Is Ben Konop's Attack Dog Tactics Going To Hurt Him In His Run For Mayor And Future Political Aspirations?

Not much of a surprise Fred Lefebvre hangs up on a caller because of a difference of opinion on the politics of Toledo. Fred said the audio of the conversation would be posted on the website as the caller of the day.
But yet again he does not follow though and it is nowhere to be found. I wonder if Brian Wilson told him not to post it.
It was great to hear a caller stymie the self proclaimed right winger of Toledo.
From an interview with former President Bill Clinton by Bloomberg, Bubba says that a Governor is far more experienced to be President than Obama is. So, according to Bubba Clinton, the Republican Presidential candidate is more experienced than Barak Obama AND the Republican Vice-Presidential candidate is more experienced than Barak Obama.

The hypocrisy of the Democraps is laughable. It looks like Obama had better resign so that the REAL Democratic nominee, Biden, can run his campaign.
John McCain Uses Idol Makeup Artist
The 72-year-old was recently made TV-ready by makeup artist Tifanie White who’s worked on So You Think You Can Dance and American Idol.
McCain paid the 2002 beauty-school grad $5,583.43 for her services, according to the Federal Election Commission.
And the best you can find on Palin is a tanning bed scandal?
"DENVER -- No matter what help Barack Obama might get from Sen. Joseph Biden, his newly named vice presidential running mate won't give Obama much cover on the Tony Rezko front.
Sarah Palin's really turning out to be quite the political 'maverick' she's portrayed to be:
It always bugs the hell out of me when I read about some church or charity throwing their annual "gaming" events. The Ohio bluenoses, who rage about slot machines and roulette wheels in bars and other businesses, suddenly go soft and mushy for their local fundraiser, grab their wallets, and go off to spend the evening putting money on a spinning wheel and playing blackjack.
I attended a wonderful Rally this evening for our community to show support of the Levy Renewal for TPS Issue 7. However, I noticed that two Board members , Robert Torres and Darlene Fisher, were not there along with all other Board members to show our community you care. As I remeber correctly, you both voted to place the Levy on the ballot this March. I am curious to find out why?
Wasting of money is bad when Carty does it, but when Ashford does it, it is "development". Why did they not do a match like the Reynolds road area? This does not pass the stink test if you ask me. We will continue to watch this one. Stay tuned.
The program will allow grants of up to $10,000 per business, with no private match required, Mr. Ashford said.
