Just use schealthconnector.org. No reason to fumble with the .gov site or make a trip downtown.
Good to see some additional enrollment options for Charleston area residents. I have a FREE quote engine available at my website that will estimate subsidies and show all premiums for all available plans at: http://schealthconnector.org/south-carolin…
This was vacant office space that the city of Charleston offered for free - it is not being paid for by federal tax money.
This seems like expensive real estate for a taxpayer funded initiative. Also the location is inconvenient to those that would be signing up for ACA coverage. Typical fed government move-no business sense.
This article is total propaganda to put more $$$$ in the pockets of the "MAN". If you are not an owner then you are a slave. It's really all about exploiting a new crop of laborers, always has been. First it was indentured white servants, then blacks, then women and now Mexicans and others of South America descent. Once the exploited group gets some political power, then it will be on to a different group for the "MAN" to exploit. Race does NOT matter to the "MAN", it's all about which group is the easiest to exploit. For the "MAN" who, criminally prostitutes Russian girls up in Myrtle to Coal Mining in the Appalachian Mountains, it's all about economics to the "MAN" and I say fuck the "MAN"!
Foreign workers' are here to work and send money home so they can have a better life when they return. Their wage scale is different, and that's one of the benefits to hiring them.
Perhaps they can't afford basic hipster staples like gourmet coffee and iPhones and that's fine.
The person making $11K a year needs to show earnings of less than $500 more to qualify for the ACA and most likely be 100% subsidized. Be creative people! Heck I would report earnings from mowing lawns or picking up cans to make up the difference to be elllllllligible.
Eligible not elligible - Come on, run it through a spelling checker. Good news story, though. I hope everyone who needs to buy their own health insurance and is not comfortable with the website will find their way there.
Both of my children were born with the excellent care of the Charleston Birth Place midwives. I appreciate The Charleston City Paper taking interest in this issue and helping our collective voice concerning birth choices to be heard.
"A country that cannot feed itself cannot defend itself," Chalmers says.
Of course they have no intention of paying these workers who will be helping to feed us a livable wage. If they were going to do that they would hire citizens.
"The lawmaker's attorney has said Mitchell might be a sloppy bookkeeper, but he's no crook."
Isn't that exactly what they said of former Senater Ford?
Control of national borders is a legitimate use of tax revenues. Indeed, it's one of the primary functions of the US federal government.
As usual in the present iteration of our system, though, we've got two mostly useless ruling parties in place who pander to votes from various extremes - as a result a rational immigration policy is impossible.
State borders would be a good place to start.
Destroy all borders.
Nationality is a disease of the mind.
David John Francis is clearly a troll/shill. Signed up today and posted c/p regressive echo chamber babble.
This is an issue that just rips the regressives apart....separating the bankstas from the bigots.
Undocumented immigration is one of the great effects of supply and demand free market capitalism. Which is why I get so confused when I see my ardent free market libertarian and conservative colleagues around here getting all worked up about illegals and demanding the creation of more government bureaucracy and spending. The market will sort it out friends.
A temporary worker program would be ok if it was properly managed. That last part is the most important part.
Biometric ID for foreign workers, a % of their wages held in escrow to be paid upon completion of their contract and either exit or renewal, forfeiture of said wages if convicted of serious crimes, clear non-eligibility for "social programs and benefits", etc.
Other countries do this. It's not hard.
I have a great idea, lets debauch and prostitute the citizenship of our great nation, in order to save a few cents on the price of fresh peaches. Won't those peaches taste good knowing that they are picked by illegal labor and you are saving a whole nickel or so on every one of them!!
He’d like to see more fruit produced inside the U.S. borders and it would be easier to do that, he says, with a guest worker program stemming from immigration reform
OOOPS, Ooops, oops. A guest worker program would cost the American Taxpayer welfare also. No welfare.. I would go for green cards, but the employer would be responsiable for those workers while they were in the United States.
