  • Paycheck protection: Tough to swallow

    As union honchos for government workers describe it, the paycheck protection legislation that passed the state Senate last month amounts to a political gag order on workers. But if there's any actual “gagging” going on, it's in attempting to swallow this union shibboleth. The Senate bill bars state, local government and school district employers from deducting any portion of union dues from workers' paychecks that fund political activity. Deductions for contract negotiations and other costs remain unchanged.

    Interesting piece in the New York Times by Patricia Cohen about how easy it would be to raise taxes on the “1%” in order to see tens of billions of additional revenue for the government.I had to read this twice to make sure it wasn’t a parody. The top 1 percent on average already pay roughly a third of their incomes to the federal government, according to a Treasury Department analysis that takes into account the entire menu of taxes — including income tax, payroll taxes that fund Medicare and Social Security, estate and gift taxes, excise and custom...

    About one-third of American households live "hand-to-mouth," meaning that they spend all their paychecks. But what surprised the study authors is that 66% of these families are middle class, with a median income of $41,000. While they don't have liquid assets, such as savings accounts or mutual fund holdings, they do have homes and retirement accounts, with a median net worth of $41,000. ... Poor hand-to-mouth households, by contrast, typically have incomes of $21,000 and no assets. Families that don't live paycheck to paycheck have incomes of $51,000 and assets of $116,000. Those living paycheck to paycheck have a tougher...

    A new report from the Corporation for Enterprise Development shows that 44% of Americans are "liquid asset poor" and are forced to live from paycheck to paycheck.Time Magazine: The economic picture is looking brighter these days. The federal government announced Thursday that economic growth had picked up to its fastest pace in two years, while employment growth over the past five months has averaged a healthy 185,000 new jobs. But as evidenced by a report out Thursday from the Corporation for Enterprise Development, nearly half of Americans are living in a state of "persistent economic insecurity," that makes it "difficult to...

    Well, I didn’t think I could get any more pissed today, but I’m there. First, I hear that Obama has blocked the death gratuity for families of fallen Rangers. But, I was heartened to hear a private foundation stepped up to the plate to help: After families of fallen U.S. military personnel were denied benefits due to the government shutdown, the Fisher House Foundation has stepped forward to help cover travel and funeral costs to help families receive the remains of their loved ones who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. The Fisher House has been providing housing and...

Will SHE continue to accept her Congressional paycheck during the shutdown?” Still awaiting a response to that. UPDATE No.3: Hammill has confirmed to The Chronicle that Pelosi will indeed continue to accept her pay. END OF UPDATE.

    A nation living beyond its means or is it something having to do with changes in the economy? The bottom line is Americans aren't saving much money, don't put money away for a rainy day, and are living "hand to mouth" as they used to say with 76% living virtually paycheck to paycheck. From CNN Money: Fewer than one in four Americans have enough money in their savings account to cover at least six months of expenses, enough to help cushion the blow of a job loss, medical emergency or some other unexpected event, according to the survey of 1,000...
  • Obama’s Paycheck Exempted from ‘Sequester’

    CNS News ^ | 2/25/13 | Penny Starr – President Barack Obama won’t have to worry about his paycheck if the spending sequestration included in the Budget Control Act that he signed into law in 2011 begins taking effect this Friday. A report published last month by the Congressional Research Service--“Budget Sequestration and Selected Program Exemptions and Special Rules"--identifies certain programs that are exempt from sequestration and lays out special rules that govern the sequestration of others. Section 255 of the Budget Control Act includes “Compensation for the President” as one of those exemptions (Page 19).

    As much as I dislike seeing my taxes go up, I can not help but smile a bit at all the liberals who tripped over each other running to the ballot box in November to vote for Obama now scratching their heads wondering why their taxes went up. On Twitter Friday, the subject #WhyIsMyPaycheckLessThisWeek was trending. In truth, I probably should feel like crying that people are so blind to the policies and the results of the policies they support, but I’d rather take a more light-hearted approach at the beginning of the new year. Payroll taxes just took a...

    Like many students, Steve Vonderweidt hoped that a master's degree in business administration would open doors to a new job with a higher paycheck. But now, about eight months after receiving his M.B.A. from the University of Louisville, Mr. Vonderweidt, 36 years old, hasn't been able to find a job in the private sector, and continues to work as an administrator at a social-service agency that helps Louisville residents obtain food stamps, health care and other assistance. He is saddled with about $75,000 in student-loan debt—much of it from graduate school. "It was a really great program," says Mr. Vonderweidt....

    President Barack Obama, his re-election fortunes heavily dependent on women, pushed Congress on Monday to "step up and do its job" by passing a bill designed to erase the wage gap between male and female workers doing the same job. With Senate Republicans expected to block the Paycheck Fairness Act when it comes up for a vote on Tuesday, Obama urged supporters of the measure to make an 11th-hour push on behalf of the legislation. "At a time when we're in a make-or-break moment for the middle class, Congress has to step up and do its job," the president said...

    Team Obama calculates that its road to victory is paved with the votes of women, so the American people are now subject to a coordinated effort to cast GOP opposition to expanding government power as an assault on the weaker sex. But few women view public policy as a battle between the sexes. Women whose husbands, brothers and sons are struggling to find jobs find no comfort in women's comparatively low unemployment rate. Next up in the Democratic campaign is the Paycheck Fairness Act, supposedly necessary to achieve "equal pay" for women. Never mind that it's already illegal to pay...

    Possible debt default worries US troops US troops serving in Afghanistan and Iraq are voicing concerns over their paychecks in the event of a debt default. Admiral Mike Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was asked by troops about the paychecks when he visited US bases in Afghanistan on Saturday. Mullen said that he didn't know the answer to the question. He said that is something for the government leaders to figure out. Some financial institutions, including credit unions which service military personnel, say they will advance pay if there is a default. Sunday, July 31, 2011...

    FORT HOOD - Lieutenant General Donald Campbell Jr., the Commander of Fort Hood said Wednesday accused gunman Major Nidal Hasan still has his rank and is still drawing a paycheck from the military while he awaits court martial set for March 5, 2012. Hasan's confinement and medical expenses are also being paid by the military, and he is moved on post once or twice a week for treatment and occasionally to see his legal defense team.
