NO MORE FREE RIDES: TRUMP CUTS PAY RAISES FOR ALL FEDERAL EMPLOYEES – EXCEPT THIS GROUP This morning, President Donald Trump sent a strong message to Congress and bureaucrats who make a living on the taxpayer’s dime: the money train has stopped. Outrageous salaries are being reigned in. In an effort to save money next year, President Trump has announced that he is slashing down pay raises for all federal employees to just 1.4 %, down from the 2.1% pay increase they received in January. Had the President not made a change, they would have received a 1.9% increase in pay. That may not sound like much, but in real numbers, the pay cut will save tens of millions of dollars in a single year. In a letter to House Speaker Paul Ryan and Vice President Mike Pence, President Trump called the pay hikes “inappropriate.” The President has a point. According to CareerTrend.com, being a government employee plays pretty well, offers great job security (even if you are a lousy employee), and the pressures are far less than the private sector. Here are the salary stats for federal workers from Career Trend. The average earnings for full-time federal government employees was $74,403 in 2009. This figure does not factor in employee benefits, which are an important part of a federal employee’s compensation. Managerial Salaries The average salary for financial managers working for the federal government was $119,671 in 2009, according to the BLS. On average, information technology managers made $91,104. The average human resources manager took home $81,837.While federal employees won’t be getting a bigger pay raise, one segment of government workers are not included in the cut – the military. In fact, for 2018, military members will see an increase of 2.1% to 2.4% in pay. It isn’t all bad news for federal employees. In order to stay competitive, President Trump did authorize localized increases (in cities in which the cost of living is higher, like New York) for some workers. The Daily Mail reports. Trump said, ‘locality pay increases averaging 26.16 percent and costing $26 billion would go into effect in January 2018.’ Trump is adjusting that to an average increase of just 0.5 per cent. ‘Locality’ bonuses are supplements to base government workers’ salaries based on where they live, accounting for differences in the cost of living in various parts of the country. The lowest amount, paid to employees in rural areas and smallish cities, is just over 15 per cent. The highest, in the San Francisco bay area, is more than 38 per cent.President Trump addressed why it is important to boost pay to our military members. ‘I strongly support our men and women in uniform, who are the greatest fighting force in the world and the guardians of American freedom,’ Trump wrote. ‘As our country continues to recover from serious economic conditions affecting the general welfare, we must work to rebuild our military’s readiness and capabilities.’ However, the union representing government workers is not happy. They claim that the current proposals to the retirement system would “result in a pay cut for federal workers.” The National Treasury Employees Union, which represents 150,000 federal employees, carped in a statement that Trump’s number for civilians is ‘too low especially in light of the fact that federal law calls for a 1.9 percent across-the-board raise and private sector wages are growing at an even faster rate.’

Not interested? How about if I… forced you? How would I do that? Well, what if I said, “If you don’t pay, you lose your job.” For decades, millions of state and local government workers—police, firefighters, teachers, and others—have been forced to make that choice. And who forces them? Public-sector unions; that is, unions who represent public-sector employees. How? It’s pretty straightforward. First, they demand employees pay hundreds of dollars in union dues as a condition of employment—meaning if they don’t pay, they get fired. Next, they use that money to support and elect union-friendly politicians. Then they negotiate contracts with those same politicians—kind of like negotiating with yourself. It’s a sweet deal—unless you’re a worker who doesn’t agree with those union-friendly politicians. Or the taxpayer who has to foot the bill for those union contracts. This game plan is not a secret. Here’s what the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees say on their website: "We elect our bosses, so we've got to elect politicians who support us and hold those politicians accountable." These perverse incentives might help explain why, for most of American history, pretty much no one thought that unionizing government workers was a good idea. This includes liberal icon President Franklin Roosevelt. Roosevelt was a very strong supporter of private-sector unions, but a very strong opponent of public-sector unions. Here’s what he said on the subject in 1937: “All Government employees should realize that the process of collective bargaining…cannot be transplanted into the public service...” Roosevelt recognized that public-sector unions could hold the government hostage at will. They could simply threaten to walk off the job if they didn’t get what they wanted. Sanitation workers, for example, could put public health at risk by refusing to collect the garbage. Other public employees would have similarly disruptive power. This was, Roosevelt believed, “unthinkable and intolerable.” In 1943, New York state’s highest court agreed, calling government unions “not only incompatible with the spirit of democracy, but inconsistent with every principle upon which our government is founded.” In the late 1950s, New York City and Wisconsin defied this view and allowed their public employees to unionize. But it was President John F. Kennedy who opened the floodgates. In order to win the support of union leadership in the 1960 presidential election, he promised to allow federal employees to unionize—and fulfilled that promise with Executive Order 10988 in 1962. It was a shrewd political move, but a bad deal for the country, and its consequences are still being felt today as public-sector unionization spread rapidly in the decades that followed. Today, unions wield tremendous power in government. Try to fire a poor-performing government worker in New York City or Los Angeles. Or almost any unionized government employee anywhere. It’s extremely difficult—if not impossible—no matter how incompetent they might be. According to one union contract in Michigan, employees could be caught drunk at work five times before being fired.

When President Trump took office, one of his greatest promises was to cut waste in his administration. His White House expense cuts could possibly save up to $22 million. This would make American taxpayers very happy and compared to the Obama administration, it’s earthshaking. Obama was very good at spending money. Trump is good at cutting costs and when he has to spend money, he does it wisely and with offsets. Since coming into office, President Trump has donated his salary to U.S. departments and agencies. For example, he donated his fourth-quarter 2017 salary to the Department of Transportation, according to USA Today. The rest of the Trump family is also leading by example by foregoing their salaries. First Daughter and Presidential Advisor Ivanka Trump and Son-in-Law Senior Advisor Jared Kushner both refused a salary. Trump has also worked with the first lady and has cut her staff as well, thereby saving more money according to Forbes. Melania employs ten staffers as opposed to Michelle Obama having 24. Those Obama staffers were paid a total of $1.6 million in 2009. Trump has had big reductions in other areas including the absence of czars and expensive “fellows.” The left complains that Trump is not filling position vacancies. That is by design. He fills those positions that are necessary and have merit. The others he allows to atrophy and go away simply by not filling them, thereby saving that money. Trump has 95 fewer employees than former President Barack Obama’s 2010 White House. So far, Trump’s frugal ways have already saved taxpayers $11 million, according to Forbes and he’s on track to save $22 million as stated previously. The highest-paid Trump staffers are his 23 “assistants to the president,” or high-level staffers, including Sarah Huckabee Sanders, John Bolton, John Kelly, Larry Kudlow, Steve Miller and Kellyanne Conway. They each make $179,000 annually. But unlike Obama’s staffers, they don’t magically become millionaires while on the White House payroll. Funny how that works, huh? I’ve written previously on how Trump has issued a series of executive orders that reduce the amount of time it takes an agency to fire people regardless of union affiliation. That is now being utilized. No longer does a government worker have a job whether they should have one or not. They now have to earn it and can be fired like anyone else. “Today, the President is fulfilling his promise to promote a more efficient government by reforming civil service rules,” said Andrew Bremberg, director of the President’s Domestic Policy Council. “Every year, the Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey shows that less than one-third of federal employees believe poor performers are adequately addressed by their agency. These executive orders make it easier to remove poor performing employees, and ensure that taxpayer dollars are more efficiently used.” From my previous article on Trump’s executive orders: “The first thing on the agenda is reducing the time it takes to fire poor performers and employees suspected of misconduct by standardizing the length of Performance Improvement Plans to 30 days across the federal government. Right now it varies agency to agency and takes somewhere between 60 and 120 days usually. ““A GAO report shows that it takes six months to a year to remove someone from government, and can often take another nine months on appeal,” an official said. “[This] also encourages agencies to fire someone for misconduct when they’ve been engaged in behavior that warrants it, instead of just suspending them.” Talk about cleaning house. The official said the administration would also make performance a more important factor than seniority when agencies undertake layoffs. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ◆ Latest news videos: https://goo.gl/BmTYua ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ★ CONNECT WITH US ★ ◆ Google+: https://goo.gl/HHKysp ◆ Email: email@example.com ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Videos can use content-based copyright law contains reasonable use Fair Use (https://www.youtube.com/yt/copyright/)

Politicians in the media often talk about the private and public sectors of our economy but what's the difference? And which one is more effective? The private sector is made up of businesses or corporations owned by people. The private sector includes malls, grocery stores, and your local diner. To make a profit in the private sector, businesses must earn our money by offering us products and services that we want or need. When businesses have to compete for the same dollars, prices go down because no one wants to pay twice as much for shoes at one store if you can get the same pair cheaper at another place. On the other hand, the public sector is not supported by profits. It doesn't have to compete for our dollars. Instead, the public sector uses our tax dollars to fund its services. So we pay for these programs no matter how much or how little we use them. The government decides how our tax dollars should be spent in the public sector. This makes sense for some things. For example, you probably wouldn't want firefighters or police officers competing with one another for your business. In other cases though, this means things cost more or service is worse. The U.S. Post Office has $100 billion in debt and is regularly bailed out with taxpayer money. And the Department of Motor Vehicles isn't usually known for fast, friendly service. In contrast, private companies know that if they offer poor customer service and don't make money, they'll go out of business. When comparing the private sector with the public sector, it's clear that the market-driven private sector is more efficient. When you don't have to be profitable or accountable, things tend to be more expensive and the service is worse. So when there's a choice between a private sector or a government service, think about that package you really need delivered.

Trump Breaking News Network - REPORT: Trump Considers Private Health Care Option for Veterans. On the campaign trail, President-elect Donald Trump constantly reiterated how he would stand up for America’s veterans and drastically reform the broken-down Department of Veterans Affairs in order to help those who served. It appears that Trump is following through on his promises. When reporters were briefed on Wednesday afternoon, an “unnamed source” stated that Trump was considering how to incorporate private health care into the VA, the U.K. Daily Mail reported. “We think we have to have kind of a … public-private option, because some vets love the VA,” the official explained. Incorporating private medicine into the VA certainly would speed up wait times and give veterans access to the sort of care they think is best for them. Most importantly, they finally would be free of the government. “It’s not the easiest thing in the world, because you’ve got all these little kingdoms out there, which is hard. You know, in the federal government it’s hard to break things up and start over,” the source stated. The Wall Street Journal noted that this sort of public-private option was believed by some to be a “first step” toward ultimate privatization of the VA system — something several veterans groups don’t want to see happen. As with most things Trump is thinking about, we won’t know what his actual plan is until he announces it. The Hill noted that the public-private option was described as “one of the options on the table,” which would indicate the Trump administration is considering other options as well. As of Thursday morning, Trump had not indicated whom he would nominate to be secretary of veterans affairs. Whoever he does tap will ultimately lead the charge to reform the system — and it would have to be someone who agrees with what Trump wants to do. Trump’s potential reforms for the VA have the potential to touch the lives of literally every U.S. veteran. Trump seems to be a man of his word, and he likely will do his best to help those who gave this country everything they had.

Health care and political systems are deeply intertwined, with implications for the quality and equality of access to health care. This symposium explores the political dynamics of health care laws and the way they affect people not only as patients but also as citizens. Health professionals, policy and public health experts, economists, sociologists, and political scientists draw on comparative politics and policies of the states—alone and as part of a federalist system—and on international perspectives to explore the relationships between citizens and their health care.

Sub Headline: The true cost of workers’ benefits is as varied as agencies’ acronyms. Synopsis: Though often lumped together, wide differences exist among federal employees’ benefits. Frequently assumed to be generous, benefits to include spouses and children can be surprisingly costly and even punitive. Content: FEGLI, CSRS, FERS, VA, FBI and DEA. Each applies to the federal government, but without a scorecard, it’s difficult to tell which is an organization and which is a benefit of working for an organization. Though efforts have been made over the years to align federal workers’ benefits with their private sector counterparts, key differences remain, and the feds’ benefits can be a language unto itself. According to a 2010 Washington Post article, non-uniformed, federal government employees totaled nearly 2.8 million, including about 600,000 in the United States Postal Service. Despite the volume of workers – and many billions of dollars under management – outstanding rates and payouts are not the norm. While workers can participate in pensions, life insurance, Social Security and a 401(k)-like equivalent named Thrift Savings Plan (TSP), there are quirks that many workers don’t realize. For example, workers can specify that a spouse receive a portion of their pension, 50% - 55%, if the worker predeceases the spouse. For that right, the worker’s pension is reduced by 10%. But it’s 20% when calculated as a 10% cost of a 50% payout. Surprising to most, the accumulated pension amount withheld is retained by the government should the spouse predecease the worker, thereby making the spouse-friendly benefit moot. For a worker retired 20 years, this could mean tens of thousands of dollars. Other quirks of the system include: • Eligibility of benefits and employer matches are correlated to start dates and can differ by organization. • TSP monies set aside in the conservative G-fund are subject to the government’s use to stir the economy in the event of a government shutdown. • Workers who retire to North Carolina receive their federal retirement benefits nearly tax-free and state taxes do not apply if they vested before 1989. • Life insurance premiums paid by the worker are often prohibitive and accelerate quickly. For all the variances that apply to federal employees, they would do well to engage an experienced and knowledgeable retirement professional to accurately sort through the options and opportunities of retirement.

House Republicans, led by the soon-to-be retiring Paul Ryan, quietly unveiled their 2019 budget this year which includes TRILLIONS of dollars in cuts to social safety net programs that help keep millions of Americans afloat. It seems like Paul Ryan is determined to ruin this country before he leaves office, as Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains.

And in those last few months this guy has in office, he is hell-bent on absolutely destroying everything good about the United States of America. You see earlier this week, while nobody was paying attention, the House of Representatives, the Republican's in the House of Representatives I should say, released their 2019 proposed budget. And do you know what that budget calls for? 5.4 trillion dollars in domestic spending cuts, 5.4 trillion dollars, one and a half trillion of those dollars are gonna come in cuts to Medicaid. Right off the top, one and a half trillion dollars from Medicaid, you know, because poor people don't need health insurance, I guess. Right? Not when we've got the wealthy getting one and a half trillion, the same exact amount worth of tax cuts. Paul Ryan and his Republican colleagues in Congress, let's give them all credit, they literally stole money to take away health care from poor people in this country to give the wealthy elite a tax break. Poor people will die, that's not hyperbole, we know what happens when people lose health insurance in this country. They can't afford to go to the doctor, they can't afford medication and therefore they die. Paul Ryan is willing to kill people in this country, because they didn't have enough money to benefit from his tax cut plan. But that's not everything. We've got four billion dollars in cuts coming to Social Security, we got over 500 billion dollars in cuts coming to Medicare, the healthcare program for senior citizens, and then the rest of it is gonna come from other programs. At least on Wednesday of this week, they voted down cuts to the Children's Health Insurance Program, thank God that enough people stood up to protect that. But let's not forget what's happening here folks. It's easy to get distracted by Donald Trump and his insanity, but no major media outlets are talking about these stories. They're not talking about the fact that Republican's led by Paul Ryan, are willing to let poor people die because they want to give their donor's a tax break. This is Paul Ryan's legacy, but you know what else is his legacy? Every person that loses their health insurance and goes to an early grave. We should be putting on headstones, “This is Paul Ryan's fault,” because it will be. If these budget cuts go through, if Paul Ryan has his way, if his little dream comes true of destroying the Federal Government before he leaves, then that needs to be marked on every gravestone in this country. Of somebody who died from losing their health insurance, because they were just too darn poor for Paul Ryan to care about them.

This is the VOA Special English Economics Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish The United States Postal Service has a history as long as the nation's. The Second Continental Congress appointed Benjamin Franklin as the first postmaster general in seventeen seventy-five. In September, the current postmaster general, Patrick Donahoe, brought an urgent message to a Senate committee. He told the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs that the Post Office could need more money by the end of the month. "Without the enactment of comprehensive legislation by September thirtieth, the Postal Service will default on a mandated $5.5 billion payment to the Treasury to pre-fund retirement retiree health benefits. Our situation is urgent." The Postal Service had losses of almost six billion dollars for the nine-month period ending in June. That could grow to ten billion for the year. Part of the deficit is a five and a half billion dollar payment to the federal retirement plan for postal workers.Mr. Donahoe is asking Congress to approve huge changes to the Postal Service. He wants to cut over one hundred thousand workers, close thousands of post offices and end Saturday mail delivery. He says the service needs to operate more like a business. The Postal Service is responsible for its own financing and not part of the federal budget. But it does take part in federal retirement and health plans. It says it has paid too much to federal retirement plans and wants at least seven billion dollars returned. Mr. Donahoe also wants to pull the Postal Service out of the federal benefit plans. He says the service's proposals could cut twenty billion dollars by twenty-fifteen and return it to profitability. John Berry is director of the federal Office of Personnel Management which supervises federal retirement and health plans. He said the Obama administration would soon announce its own plan. At the hearing, Senator Susan Collins criticized the administration for not having a plan already. Leaders of two labor unions representing postal workers have also criticized the proposed cuts. The United States Postal Service has over five hundred sixty thousand employees. It reported revenue of sixty-seven billion dollars last year -- more than either of its biggest private competitors, FedEx or UPS. But as the amount of physical mail decreases, so too have the earnings from Postal Service operations.For VOA Special English, I'm Alex Villarreal. (Adapted from a radio program broadcast 09Sep2011)

Legislators in South Carolina are poised to nullify Obamacare in the state by fast tracking a bill that could become a model for other states fed up with the federal health-care law. House Bill 3101, titled the "South Carolina Freedom of Health Care Protection Act," passed the state House of Representatives last April by a 65-34 vote. The bill now heads to the GOP-controlled Senate with special-order priority and if it passes could make South Carolina the first state to exempt citizens and businesses from all participation in the Affordable Care Act. State Sen. Tom Davis, the bill's sponsor who recently wrapped up study committee hearings for H3101 in Columbia, Charleston and other cities, says that the proposed legislation renders the Affordable Care Act void or inoperable through a handful of provisions. "It will essentially have five components to it, all of which in my judgment are legal, effective, and within the state's power to do," Davis, a Republican from Beaufort, said in an interview. The bill's main component prohibits agencies, officers and employees of the state of South Carolina from implementing any provisions of the Affordable Care Act, leaving implementation of the national health-care law entirely in the hands of a federal government that lacks the resources or personnel to enforce the law. This provision, according to Davis, comes from the anti-commandeering doctrine established in case law that says feds can't compel states to enforce federal laws. "What the Supreme Court said in Printz v. United States is that states are not merely political subdivisions of the federal government to carry out what the federal government does; they are sovereign entities," Davis said. "Congress can pass laws, but it cannot compel the states to utilize either their treasury or personnel to implement those federal laws." Additional provisions of H3101 further neuter the Affordable Care Act by outlawing state exchanges, issuing tax deductions to individuals equal to the tax penalties levied by the federal government, and directing the state attorney general to sue over whimsical enforcement of the law. Taken together, the provisions effectively repeal the federal law for the people of South Carolina.

This video expose is styled as a documentary short, covering 5 unusual facts about Walmart store closings. Walmart has had numerous contracts with the U.S. government. One of these goes back to the early 2000s, when Walmart began a cooperative with the U.S. Defense Department on RFID technology. With the help of the DoD, Walmart has been at the forefront of biometric and RFID technology. In 2012-2013, Walmart introduced SoloHealth stations into their stores and announced that it was an Obamacare, also known as the Affordable Care Act, initiative. Most people overlooked that the SoloHealth stations came equipped with RFID scanning technology. Walmart was a pilot for these SoloHealth Stations, and collected data on thousands of people as a part of the test run. In the past year, Walmart has announced that it will be closing many stores as a part of portfolio management, but in 2015 their explanation was different. They closed 5 stores because of "plumbing problems." In 2016, 10 percent of stores in Brazil closed. Brazil is currently in an economic recession that is quickening to depression. Many of the closed stores in the U.S. have been gutted for some odd reason; all the products have been removed. In March 2016, Google accidentally leaked a map of the United States showing all Walmart stores permanently closed. The media did not cover this, though it was covered by a local Arkansas newspaper. Google claimed the map was an accident, but it is strange considering the only businesses shown to be "permanently closed" were Walmart supercenters, neighborhood markets, and express stores. Also, there is some evidence that Walmart stores are a part of a system of tunnels underneath the United States. This topic was not addressed in this video. Knowing all of the past contracts that Walmart has with the U.S. government, are we now seeing Walmart stores transition to their true purpose?
