February 10, 2011wow , renee you guys gotta give luzerne county a big middle finger for valentines day for that , damn . it definetly sucks that everyone in that county gets screwed so bad in taxes especially since so many politicians are crooks in there too . if you guys were in columbia county your taxes would be about half as much
February 10, 2011as far as the health insurance , well it sucks that you guys pay that much , alot of construction outfits have their emplyees pay the first $1500.00 to $2000.00 . it sucks but hopefully you giys will never , ever really need it , the iv treatments i get every 8 weeks cost the insurance company $37k !!!! i only pay $50.00 i am lucky to have good insurance because if i did not i would be royally screwed.
February 10, 2011Renee that is crazy.
sure am glad we are lucky to have good coverage through my employer.
February 10, 2011mstrss you need to start looking for another job, something that at least pays hourly. I don`t think anyplace around here is paid by the job anymore.
Big Black, luzerne county raised our taxes 20% a year after we bought the house. Then Dallas School District who has the newest building in the county decides to build another new high school, so the school taxes went up. When we bought the house the taxes were 3066.00 then they went to 3850.00 a year after we bought the house and now 3 years after we are here the school taxes jumped us up to 4000.00.
The insurance Paul is trying to figure out with the HR director at work....sad huh, he doesn`t even know whats going on with it. Something is wrong there tho. He told Paul tho for me to pick up the insurance where I work after 60 more days and both of us would be getting it for free.... One extreme to the other.
February 11, 2011man renee , that`s nuts alot of places are forcing their employees spouses to get insurance where they work or they pay through the nose . it `s insane what alot of places and insurance companies are doing these days . with everything getting more expensive , hard working people are getting the short end of the stick the property taxes in luzerne county are just nuts , there is a guy who lives on the other side of the mountain owns alot of property and the donkeys for local donkey b-ball games , his county taxes went from $14k to $21k a year when luzernes taxes went haywire a few years back
February 11, 2011Wow, I am glad I don`t own that property! I found out that alot more was taken out of his pay this week to make up for last month too. It was supposed to go higher as of the 1st of January. 60 more days and then I can get my own and then we will be ok. This is crazy that you have to almost play a chess game to figure out the best way to get insurance. We work to pay insurance and taxes that is it!
February 13, 2011well it was in the high 30`s today and it felt pretty warm you can tell spring is coming , watched the bud shootout jr did alright until his wreck , atleast he got the pole today for the 500 next week
February 14, 2011all this cold weather we`ve been having , weather in the 40`s feels pretty warm later this week ut`s suppost to be in the 50`s spring is coming
February 15, 2011Insurance is going crazy, and now the insurance companies are trying to get all the extra funds for the upcoming National Healthcare, better known as Obamacare. I know things have changed for us since I retired and the only insurance we have in my wife`s. Her`s doesn`t cover a lot of things that were covered under mine. Looks like there`s no end in sight for price increases, now the news is reporting food prices are going to go up 20% or more due to the bad winter.
February 16, 2011People just can`t get ahead Mark, its sad! You would think they would offer you your insurance for retirement, that wasn`t an option?
Bigblack, I am feeling the spring coming on too! Gonna love the next few days! I watched the shootout too. Not liking that couples racing, reminds me of ballroom dancing. The drivers are too dependant on another driver to race, look at the wreck with Mark Martin....Anyway, hopefully Harvick can pull off the win this weekend coming up! Not a Jr fan but I was a huge fan of his dad`s! Still miss that man!
