I'm sorry, I just coventry haven't seen it, and I'm talking about the private sector. Heck fast food joints have given raises, min wage has increased, all my friend at blessing hospital and the medical group have given raises. I'm sorry, I just don't know what circle of people you're running with. And they've all without exception received more than 1%. The wage correction…
pjohnf - Quinn: New controls after Medicaid paid for dead - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Why is it with government bureaucrats that they always say they're going to close the barn door after the horse has left the barn? Millions in fraudulent payouts and now they find out. Only goes to prove once again that government is not the solution but government is truly the problem.
pjohnf - Rauner details some immigration views - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Anti-illegal immigration is not anti-legal immigration and Quinn knows it. It's disappointing that Rauner would side with the illegal immigration/amnesty crowd. It's insane and wrong to reward illegal behavior, illegal immigration, with any pathway to citizenship. Big business wants cheap labor and democrats want a new dependent class of voters and that's why both support immigration…

Tell that to people (Private Sector, of course) who have taken pay CUTS, shortened hours or loss of benefits just to remain employed. Somehow, I feel your comments come more from attitude and opinion than knowledge and experience.

Dairy prices could skyrocket without new farm bill

4 months, 1 week ago by Denise Donley

The previous five-year Farm Bill expired last year, but Congress issued a one-year extension

Analysts are warning that dairy prices could skyrocket if federal lawmakers fail to pass a new Farm Bill before the end of the year.

The Congressional holiday recess begins next week, and passage of a new farm bill is far from certain.

The previous five-year Farm Bill expired last year, but Congress issued a one-year extension that expired in September.

If an agreement is not reached, the most dramatic and immediate impact will be on milk prices. That’s because a 1949 farm law would force the government to buy milk at hugely inflated prices. However, other foods and services could also be affected.

The sticking points in the latest negotiations are over cuts to food stamps and the structure of farm subsidies.
