    So the Dems claim they need 10 Billion to keep Teachers and Firemen from being laid off.

    The Truth is those are just 2 examples of who could be laid off if the States can not meet their budgets. The States would decide who to cut. Likely many of the cuts would be bureaucrats not Teachers and fire men.

    What this bill is about is rewarding the Public Sector Unions before the Mid terms. Rewarding the very pool they pull from for their Campaign workers and supporters.

    So what it is really is a 10 Billion dollar re-elect congressional Democrats Bill.

    Oh with 13 BILLION MORE for Failing state Medicare Budgets. Notice how they tack on some for Failing Medicare Budgets on every bill they pass lately. That is because they do not want you to focus on how FUCKED Medicare/Caid is at every level. It is bleeding money, and the Health Care so far is making things worse not better. Cost are going up across the board, and more people are eligible. States that were already knee deep in Debt from Social Spending programs have been Mandated to spend more.

    Epic FAIL FAIL FAIL

    Just cut their pay & pensions. If they strike, Replace them. Problem Solved. There are many unemployed who will gladly take their jobs & probably do it better.

    it's not just the money but the strings attached. The money given to states comes with the stipulation that each state must spend as much or more on education next year as they did this year.

    This bill basically hijacks state budgets.

    And in most school districts the increase in the number of teachers as a percentage has been more than the increase of the student population. Considering the state of our public education system we can certainly see the government more is better philosophy doesn't work.

    It's Torches and Pitchfork time my friends.

    Congressional Republicans need to go to the mattresses and not allow Progressive Marxists States to pull down the rest of the country, I mean at a faster rate than they are already.

    Let the states go through a defacto bankruptcy, so they can reform their spending and pensions.

    Medicaid. States run Medicaid, not Medicare.

    Are you suggesting the Medicaid rolls have swelled during this recession because of provisions in the reform bill that don't go into effect until 2014?

    Medicaid rolls always swell during recessions because more families' incomes take hits, dropping those families below eligibility thresholds. It's not rocket science: recessions increase the strain on safety net programs.

    I'm wondering if all those teachers who may be "rehired" will have to pay back the unemployment they were paid over the summer. That's a lot of frickin moolah. Here in NJ it's about 6 grand.

    What the fucking fuck!! Seriously? Who would ever pass a law like that? I had no idea that there was a stipulation that they HAD to spend at least as much?!

    Dems should loose 100 maybe 120 House seats this November

    What a fucking outrage!

    I didn't know that either, but I did read that our governor (Christie) said he probably would not apply for it, which is going to tick off teachers even more.

    They keep trying to put a band aid on a gaping wound.
