Also, I would think that an independent-minded fellow like yourself would want to note that at this point in his presidency Obama has surpassed Bush's number of recess appointments.
This is not about just reducing spending. It's about breaking the union.
Rasmussen Poll: American Voters Support Wisconsin GOP Gov. Walker Over Unions by a 48% to 38% Margin
Americans siding with Governor Walker over unions in Wisconsin …
According to a recent Rasmussen poll, likely voters are siding with Governor Scott Walker over the Unions in Wisconsin by a 48% to 38% margin. Only 38% sided with the unions, which is a far cry from the image that the MSM is trying to show protesting in Madison, WI. Obviously Democrats are going to support the unions and did so in this survey with 68% of the vote, while Republicans, while 68% of Republicans sided with the governor. More importantly and telling, 58% of individuals not affiliated with either parity sided with Governor Walker. The winds of change are occuring in Wisconsin.
A sizable number of voters are following new Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s showdown with unionized public employees in his state, and nearly half side with the governor.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 48% of Likely U.S. Voters agree more with the Republican governor in his dispute with union workers. Thirty-eight percent (38%) agree more with the unionized public employees, while 14% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
As stated by Hot Air, the unions appear to be losing the national battle for the hearts and minds of the American people. We the People seem to be growing weary of union entitlements while private citizens must make sacrifices every day.
The bigger questions is how will what is going on in Wisconsin and the people’s reaction to unions affect other cash strapped states like Ohio, Indiana, Pennsylvania and others? There is an even greater questions posed by Red State, did Barack Obama just make a mistake in Wisconsin that he will never be able to recover from? Because once again, Obama is on the wrong side of the people and the private sector is sick and tired of the public sector and political class.
The Silvered, Fork-tongued One skates through electoral mayhem with the grace of Johnny Weir, but this time, he falls and fails badly. It will come back to haunt him.
I refer to President Obama siding with the public sector unions across the country while the Governors, both Republican and Democrat, try to balance state budgets and ask the unions to make less-aggressive concessions than private sector employees have been making for years.
All the talk of “tough choices” and shared sacrifice sounds incredibly empty and hollow.
Dentists being for the most part quite conservative and independant practice solo or in a relatively small group, 5 being a quite large group. Physicians on the contrary, especially specialists are in large groups for the most part and sadly are in groups with cross specialities. Most doctors in these groups really have little to say a to the fee they charge but relagete this to the manager of the group. I suspect most of them like it this way. I would not be surprised if dnf777 had little to do with the fees that were charged for the services he rendered. Don't know for a fact but would not be surprised.
Having broken my foot a year ago, I was referred to an orthopedic surgeon. The bill wal almost $1000.00. The reimbursement was a little over $200.00. There are reasons that fees and reimbursement have come to this and those reasons in my opinion are due mainly due to the government.
Dentists for the most part have told the Gov. not only no but HELL NO. I wish physicians had done the same and maybe we would not be in quite the mess we are in.
If you have any questions that I can answer, I'll be glad to.
I don't charge anything. My employer does. And its so damn complicated, I have no idea what they charge. All I know is at our monthly financial meetings, they show total billables, total reimbursements, and we usually hit around 28 cents collected for every dollar billed.
