I never understand why the Quincy building inspector never mentions that building that houses Bayview Building supply. It is in worse shape than some of the fix or flatten property's and there are people going in and out every day buying building supplies. It is on 630 n 2nd, go down by the bay and look to the east.

These are "elected officials" not employees. They are not entitled to heath insurance in my thinking based on the hours they work. I do realize they put in more time than the council meeting. But they are still a long way from being full time. Why are city taxpayers being burdened with the cost of their heath care when the county and the school board do not feed at the trough? The total cost for the…

And why should this stop? It's all part of their compensation. They spend a lot more time than what you see on TV. For example, if you eliminate the health care you reduce the likelihood of a small business owner wanting to run. Plus it also means most of the council members have the same health insurance as other city employees...which seems like a jolly good idea There are two reasons…
pjohnf - Clock ticks on Illinois term limits ballot measure - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Why does the proposal have the size of the House and Senate in it? It should have only dealt with whether voters support term limits for our corrupt politicians. However even with the House and Senate changes in it, it should be allowed to be voted on by voters. The only reason Quinn and Madigan oppose the measure is because it threatens their power and control.

McCaskill pushes for child care tax credit

5 months, 2 weeks ago by Jim Dewey

The U S Senate is working on a child care tax credit this week. 

U S Senator Claire McCaskill of (D Missouri) said the child care tax credit bill is important because many working people - or people who want to work - are stressed over available, affordable and safe child care. "More than any other thing," McCaskill said, "it can dictate whether or not someone feels they can be productive in terms of our economy." 

McCaskill said a lot of parents are having to make a tough choice as to whether to stay home because child care is not available or not affordable or to go back to work. She said that is especially true for people who are on government benefit. "This is very important that we make sure that the child care is available, McCaskill said, "because most people I've met want to work, but it has to come out and make sense financially."
