Seniors to be Hit with Age Tax on Healthcare

When it comes to employment or housing, no one is legally permitted to discriminate based upon skin color, age, sex, sexual orientation or religion. At least that’s what the laws say. 

However, try going out and finding a decent paying job when you’re over 55-years of age and you’ll quickly discover that age is a discriminating factor. They get around it by citing other criteria, but it’s obvious that it’s often difficult to just get a consideration or foot in the door if you’re an older person.
Trust, me, I know. It’s also possible to be discriminated against for one’s religious beliefs in the job market, yet once again, employers find another way of explaining why you were suddenly rejected.
Some years ago, I applied for an online teaching position as a college biology instructor. I hold a Bachelor of Science Degree in Wildlife/Fisheries Management and Master’s Degree in Biology, with my field of study being population genetics. Everything was looking good for the online instructor’s position until the college realized I am a young-earth creationist, and then suddenly I was rejected and told the position was already filled.

Back to age discrimination. Although it’s illegal to discriminate based on age, it’s a common practice in many areas of life. Senior citizens often get discounts at restaurants and other places that younger people do not get. Children also get discounts based upon their age.
So, when exactly is age discrimination legal and when is it illegal?

That’s a question we need to be asking our people in Congress, based on a report from Fox Business:
“As GOP lawmakers work toward creating a just-right “repeal and replace” plan for Obamacare, some legislation being introduced has touched a nerve for AARP and older Americans.”
“In a letter to the Chairman and Ranking member of the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Energy and Commerce Health Subcommittee, AARP Senior Vice President Joyce Rogers lashed out against the recently introduced State Age Rating Flexibility Act of 2017, legislation that would allow insurers to charge older Americans significantly more for health insurance.”
“‘This legislation has a simple explanation — it would be an age tax — charging older Americans not yet eligible for Medicare a penalty of five times what others must pay for health insurance. The term ‘age rating’ is Washington-speak for overcharging older Americans by thousands of dollars for their health care,’” AARP Executive Vice President Nancy LeaMond told FOX Business.” 


“Under the ACA, insurers can charge its oldest enrollees up to three times as much as the youngest adult enrollees. The new proposal would change the age rating ratio to 5:1 or even higher. According to a new study from AARP’s Public Policy Institute conducted by the independent actuarial firm Milliman, under this proposal, on average, adults age 60 and older would see their insurance bills go up by $3,200 — making their average annual premium a whopping $17,900.” 


Notice that this bill is not being sponsored or introduced by Democrats, but by Republicans, which claim to be friends and protectors of senior citizens.
Many senior citizens live on fixed incomes and can ill afford such a drastic increase in any part of their budget, let alone healthcare. You can be certain that their pensions, retirement funds and Social Security won’t be increased enough to compensate for the higher cost of healthcare. If passed, it will surely lead to a number of senior citizens faced with the difficult decision of paying for the ‘age tax’ increase or eating or paying for a roof over their heads. The end result will mean more seniors dying sooner, or becoming destitute and a burden on others.

Please, Please Please, contact your Senator and Representative in Washington DC and insist that they vote against the age tax bill!

Trump to Bureaucrats – Sorry Folks, You’re Not “Good Enough for Government Work”

http://minutemennews.wpengine.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/wordpress-popular-posts/28106-featured-300x120.jpg

There should be no permanent jobs in U.S. government of any kind. A large portion of the problem incoming administrations have is the entrenched, perpetual bureaucracy.
Whether they be elected, appointed or hired as any other employee would, there should be no permanenjob security. Even at its best, permanent job security leads inevitably to sloth. With tenure there is also little incentive to excel and innovate. This is of course where the old saying, “good enough for government work,” comes from.

Yet this has been the life’s work for the democrat party for decades. Over the years, rules have been crafted pertaining to the hiring and release of federal government bureaucrats. It’s far too easy to hire them and very difficult to fire them. Leftist bureaucrats are specifically bred in colleges and universities to populate government. They are trained for nothing else.
Therefore, as we would expect, Republican administrations have a much tougher go of it when they obtain authority over these departments, by way of winning elections.
Some say it’s impossible for an incoming administration to clean house, so many take this as gospel and don’t even try. Others, like the George W. Bush administration, tried the compassionate conservative approach, thinking his people could work with the entrenched bureaucracy. He found out otherwise. He discovered that regardless of who wins elections, the bureaucrats believe they run Washington and the government. And as long as incoming administrations buy into this premise, it will just continue. This is what is meant by “shadow government.”

But then along comes Trump, who immediately struck out against the norm of appointing those with mostly government experience, and has instead appointed business executives to his cabinet and inner circle.
Refreshingly these gentleman and ladies have little experience in the ways of government. Business is their forte, which translates into actually wanting to accomplish something, rather than merely perpetuating and further growing an already far too bloated bureaucracy.
And these new appointees are already beginning to shake things up. Take new Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson for example.
Yesterday, the Daily Mail reported  that, “Diplomatic experts in the State Department were laid off on Thursday as part of the transition into the new administration.” They added that, “Former Assistant Secretary for Non-Proliferation Tom Countryman, who was let go last month, criticized the redundancies and said he feared the White House is planning to not rely on State Department experts when conducting foreign policy.”

GOOD! And experts at what – giving away the store? The State Department is completely worthless and has done nothing but weaken our standing and influence throughout the globe. They are masters of useless diplomacy. Ours is a world governed by the strategic use of force. Nothing is or has ever been solved by way of diplomacy, particularly not through the State Department. NOTHING!
Patrick Kennedy, who served for nine years as the undersecretary for management, Assistant Secretaries for Administration and Consular Affairs Michele Bond and Joyce Anne Barr, and Ambassador Gentry Smith, director of the Office for Foreign Missions, were sent letters by the White House that their service was no longer required.”
