(continued): We have a landfill that most counties don't which generates tons of money and the PRC programs which provides cheap labor $.28 cents an hour, gas wells that provides a good return for the county and anyone with a phone pays $1.25 a month for the 911 service, which we need but, again less money coming out of the county budget. This is just another," The rich get richer and the poor get poorer"in the republican world. Just remember county employees, you are only going to get a third of what you were making after retirement. Please fight for the employees who are hired after the first of Jan. 2014 it's your duty.

Of course, again it's "OBAMACARE" that is the main reason for the county not to provide healthcare after retirement! I'm shocked! We have a mostly republican county as far as voters, we have a republican newspaper,we have a republican county government,why not blame "OBAMACARE" or in the sane would of "commonsense", it's really called the "AFFORDABLE care act". I'm still trying to figure out why a president would try and hurt the American people, what is the logic behind it? I'm sure (duh) that President Obama sat back one day and said, "How can I hurt the American people who voted me in office "TWICE"! Inmates in the county prison will now have better healthcare than retiring employees! I retired from the county and when I retired I lost my dental,life insurance and my spouse's health coverage. Now it's the employee! Stand up county workers you deserve at least healthcare after retirement or you will be working till your dead!!!
