Perennial meathead and wacky 101.5 DJ Jim Gearhart posted this clip on his website. I assume he means to impugn the NEA with it. That's funny, because, as far as I'm concerned, Bob Chanin hits it out of the park.
Before referring to this clip, Jim was laughing this morning at the thought of teachers losing 12%-20% of their take home pay.
By the way, Horizon Blue Cross/Blue Shield is a sponsor of NJ 101.5's business reports in the morning during Gearhart's show. They also administer the State Employees Health Benefits Program. The outgoing CEO, William J. Marino, made $8.7 million last year. Some NJ towns are anticipating cost increases of 12% or more this year on health insurance for their employees. This after huge increases the year before.
But Jim never says boo about this; he's too busy insisting teachers need to pay more to Horizon for their outrageously expensive health care.
Gosh, I wonder why...
