Big Dan's Big News March 4, 2010

Citizen Posse March 9th

Special Commentary by Big Dan: "I said this back in 2004: you get to keep ONE of your FOUR monthly unemployment checks when you lose your job. Now, it's worse! I said back then, that ONE check goes for Ronald Reagan's tax on unemployment (Reagan started taxing unemployment) and TWO checks go to COBRA, the continuation of your health benefits after you lose your job. If you got the max which was $500/week unemployment, pay $500 for the Reagan Tax and $1,000 for COBRA...and keep $500 a month to pay your: mortgage, heat, electricity, water, credit card bills, car payments, car insurance, food, gas, and all your bills - $500 a month to pay all that! Keeping your health insurance when you're unemployed is NOW IMPOSSIBLE and keep in mind unemployment is soaring. NOW everyone is listening to me! We have a broken system where you keep 25% of your unemployment unless you drop your health insurance and don't pay Ronald Reagan's unemployment tax!"

Consumers in Illinois who lose their jobs and have no other option but to buy their own health insurance will get socked this year with premium increases of up to 60 percent, according to state records.

Ever since deregulation caused a worldwide economic meltdown in September '08 and everyone became a Keynesian again, it hasn't been easy to be a fanatical follower of the late economist Milton Friedman. So widely discredited is his brand of free-market fundamentalism that his admirers have become increasingly desperate to claim ideological victories, however far fetched.

Naomi Klein: Milton Friedman did not save Chile. To say the late economist deserves credit for the country's building codes shows a lack of knowledge of pre-coup Chile
