When I’m not being a starving artist, I work in my secret identity as a UPS airport ramp-rat. Word on the street (just a rumor, mind you) is that they’re going to make us pay $90 a month for our bennies. Now, keep in mind, the only reason people show up for a part-time job that happens in the dark of night and out in the pouring rain is for the bennies. Some people there are only making about $100-something/week. So it’s going to push people to say, “Hell with this job!”

I’d like to crow to my fellow Teamsters that I didn’t vote for that stinking commie in the White House, but – let’s face it – Romney wasn’t going to cancel Obamacare.

I think if a repeal of ObamaCare passed a GOP senate and house, a President Romney would’ve signed it. But you’re right, he obviously didn’t make repeal a central theme of his campaign. Maybe RomneyCare precluded that (he could’ve said he learned his lesson or just pulled a Kerry and said he was for it before it was against it) or maybe he really didn’t want to repeal it.

Regardless, I still think reality is going to destroy it. The Senate Dems are already squealing like stuck pigs – they are starting to realize that it’s a disaster. Obama doesn’t care – he can’t run again and he’s clueless about the real world anyway. But I think the pressure is going to start coming from those Dems who still think they have political futures.

My lady is a traveling nurse. Right now, in California, they’re seeing a flood of immigrants, with nursing licenses, from Nigeria, Liberia, Somalia, etc. As the pay scale reduces, and the ratio of patients to nurses goes up, and quality of care goes down, these nurses will be the ones to stay in the industry. Others will leave for greener pastures, if they can find any.

She says that some of them are actually quite bright, and well-qualified, but you can’t understand a word they say.

That has been going on as long as I have been in nursing. English nurses, Canadian nurses, Phillipino nurses, African nurses. Its all so they can pay them less than American staff. They are thrilled with much less. Sort of like outsourcing without leaving the country.
My last hospitalization for a week, 3 shifts a day I only had 1 male nurse who was white. Everyone else was Hispanic, African, or especially Phillipino. Some were ok. Most, not so much. Overall, even my doctor agreed they were trying to kill me.

Somehow this will all be Bush’s fault, wait and see.

Bush is actually (according to the Democrats) Darth Vader.

Who are these companies? I have been in the work force as a nurse since the late 60′s and I never had a job that offeren insurance for part time. In some cases, the insurance for fulltimers was crap. Why is this such a shock?
