Um.  No.  She fired the staffers responsible for it, after it was discovered that it was them who started it.

I doubt they started it; I received a very similar e-mail from Mindy's family e-mail list last fall, then pretty much that exact e-mail a few months ago.  But yeah, I read that a Clinton staffer forwarded it and then got canned over the deal.

So, I'm dumb and didn't realize that you had to re-claim exempt status on your W-4's every year (and the deadline for this year was February 15...), so all of the sudden and without warning, my paycheck has shrunk drastically while my expenses have not. I'm not looking forward to trying to find time for a second job. I also realize that I've finally turned into the cliche libertarian who complains about taxes.

Well, the IRS can fuck right off in any case.

Gah. I owe my health insurance 300 Euro, accumulated for the first three months of working here. I guess I could live with the fact that it costs 100 Euro per month, but the fact that I have to pay it for the month of january, when actually the very first letter they sent me was dated as February 1st and it is thus perfectly clear that I could have in no way made use of the services of the insurance before february is kind of ridiculous. As is the fact that the insurance employee who I tried to talk about this with on the phone kept insisting on the fact that, since I started working here in january, I had a "right to have a basic insurance" in january, where a "right" to have one clearly means an obligation to pay for it, even if you couldn't actually make use of it.

It's been privatised. I should say that I did not go for the cheapest option, because I did want to have dental services included and I do not see much of a point in paying for health insurance and then leaving a pretty high "own risk" factor in there, because shouldn't the point of a health insurance be that your insurance carries the financial risk? So I guess I could have saved a little on that. But it is kind of ridiculous, yes.

edit: Basically, it seems that this statutory obligation to insure yourself combines the worst of both worlds: In a full-on statutory insurance (which I'm fully in favour of), I'd simply been insured automatically in the first month and the fee would have been taken out of my wage immediately, whereas in a system where insurance is entirely up to the individual, at least I wouldn't be forced to pay for a period in which I wasn't even actually insured.

So what you're saying is that in practice, Clinton's plan sucks.

Other than the two paragraphs of vague, uncited statistics that apparently prove that women are dumber than men (Rolling Eyes), the article is actually way smarter than that quote makes it appear. It makes me wonder if the feministing people actually read it.

Did you read the article? The real article. Not the quotes out of context.

I just read the article and I can't for the life of me find anything remotely redeeming about it, seriously.

So I don't understand why more women don't relax, enjoy the innate abilities most of us possess (as well as the ones fewer of us possess) and revel in the things most important to life at which nearly all of us excel: tenderness toward children and men and the weak and the ability to make a house a home.

Sounds pretty smart to me! And since I have a dick, I can make that kind of judgment.
