CBO: ObamaCare number do not add up

train-wreck obamacare 500

President Obama and other officials like to point to projections by the Congressional Budget Office to show that ObamaCare “is working,” as the president put it.

He said 8 million have enrolled in the federal exchanges, but the CBO said in a recent report only 6 million are newly insured and some say even fewer than that did not have prior insurance.

“Twenty to 33 percent are actually newly insured and out of 8 million, that would be no more than 2 to 3 million people,” said David Hogberg of National Center for Public Policy Research in Washington.

That is why the CBO showed that at the end of this year, there will still be 42 million uninsured and 31 million without insurance ten years from now.

Not only that, but starting in 2018, the CBO report projected the total getting coverage from the exchange will hit 25 million, although at the same time 12 million will lose coverage.

While “evil” bankers earn barely above the national average, Federal Bank Regulators’ limo drivers pull in 170% of the national average

SnobbyGuy 500b

It is true that the very top bank executives make more in a year than most of us make in a lifetime, but compensation of this magnitude is rare. Most banks in this country are small businesses and pay employees modest salaries. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the average annual salary of a bank employee was $49,540 in 2012, not much higher than the average annual across all occupations, $45,790.

Yet one group in banking stands out as highly paid—federal bank regulators. Before the Dodd-Frank Act, the average employee of a federal bank regulatory agency received 2.3 times the average compensation of a private banker. By 2013 this ratio increased to more than 2.7—and in some cases considerably more.

The average compensation at the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC) and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) exceeded $190,000 in 2012. The staff at the Federal Reserve is likely even better compensated, but the Fed refuses to release employee salaries.

You might think high-paying jobs at these agencies require special skills. Not so. At the OCC, secretaries make on average $79,182 per annum. Motor vehicle operators (the agency’s limo drivers) at the FDIC earn $82,130. Human resources management trainees at the CFPB make $110,759 a year.

Obnoxious Dweebs With Apparently Nothing Better To Do Sue NJ School District Over ‘Under God’ in Pledge of Allegiance

Frightened-500

A national humanist group is suing a New Jersey school district on behalf of a family that believes the phrase “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance is discriminatory toward atheist children.

The lawsuit against the Matawan-Aberdeen Regional School District was filed in state court last month and announced Monday by the American Humanist Association, a Washington, D.C.-based advocacy organization.

The group says the phrase, added in 1954, “marginalizes atheist and humanist kids as something less than ideal patriots.” The anonymous plaintiffs say those two words violate the state constitution’s right to equal protection.

David Niose, an attorney for the American Humanist Association’s Appignani Humanist Legal Center, said public schools should not permit an exercise that “teaches students that patriotism is tied to a belief in God.”

“Such a daily exercise portrays atheist and humanist children as second-class citizens, and certainly contributes to anti-atheist prejudices,” Niose said in a statement.

Of course, that the religion of Evolution is taught in those same schools, they are just fine with.
