What are your thoughts on the Affordable Care Act?
I have insurance however out of pure curiosity, I went to the healthcare.gov website to see what it would cost me and my family if for some reason my insurance was ever dropped.
Currently paying approx $300 per month with no deductible, $25 office visits, etc to the cheapest ACA plan at $788 per month with a $6,000 deductible and 40% after the deductible is met.
I make a decent salary and I would go bankrupt in a couple months if I had to pay these cost. Just curious where the "AFFORDABLE" part comes into play.
The way the Army's enlisted ranks are set up now, sergeants major who serve in battalions make the same base pay as those who work for four-star generals.
But the sergeant major of the Army has an idea that could change that.
Sergeant Major of the Army Dan Dailey floated the idea of adding E-10 and E-11 pay grades to a group of E-9s during a senior leadership conference in June at Fort Bliss, Texas, according to his spokesman, Master Sgt. Tyrone Marshall.
Such a move could potentially increase base pay for the Army's top sergeants major.
THINK BEFORE YOU RESPOND! THANKS
I've noticed a lot of adverse and derogatory comments made by some of our RP Members lately! When you read some of those comments it's clear those Members are trying to insight anger and/or attack the other individual's intelligence or just plan being unprofessional.
I like RP because the majority of Service Members have been very professional!
