I know, you’re shocked. But it’s true, Newark Airport sucks.
Newark Liberty International Airport ranked last among 25 major U.S. airports in a survey of on-time performance and cancellation rates during the November and December holiday travel season.
Newark’s total of 24,503 delays and 3,210 cancellations out of 97,389 flights during the two months from 2009 through 2013 meant 29 percent of flights were either late or cancelled, according to the survey, conducted by nerdwallet.com, a personal finance site.
A spokesman for the Port Authority declined comment. Sort of like how nobody at the airport knows when your plane is gonna leave either.
Don’t count on LaGuardia or JFK being better though.
LaGuardia ranked 23rd, with 25 percent of flights cancelled or late, while JFK was 21st, or fifth worst, at 22 percent.
All 3 airports are run by the same gang at the Port Authority. And since they’re the only game in town, where’s the incentive to improve? What are we gonna do, take our business to Milwaukee?
He’s got a stack of unpaid bills sitting on his desk that he “forgot” about.
“One of the nice things about being home is actually that it’s a little bit like a time capsule. Because Michelle and I and the kids, we left so quickly that there’s still junk on my desk, including some unpaid bills (laughter) — I think eventually they got paid — but they’re sort of stacked up. And messages, newspapers and all kinds of stuff.”
And then the White House decide to “forget” that he mentioned them.
But that transcript is different than the official White House version, which deletes the “unpaid bills” part:
“there’s still junk on my desk, including some — newspapers and all kinds of stuff.”
The discrepancy was noticed by the White House pool reporters, and the correct transcript disseminated by them.
Here’s a pro-tip Champ. If you don’t pay your bills, your credit card gets declined.
“I was trying to explain to the waitress `No, I really think that I’ve been paying my bills.”‘
Which, of course, turns out to be a lie.
Everything Obama says is a lie. Including “and” and “the.”
State-run media keeps trying to tell me “Obamacare is working.”
Who should I believe, them, or my lyin’ eyes?
Thousands of Americans will see their health plans cancelled before the November elections in a development that could boost critics of ObamaCare.
The Morning Consult, a Washington-based policy publication, reported that nearly 50,000 people will lose their current health coverage in the coming weeks.
The figure encompasses cancellations announced by insurance departments and providers in Kentucky, Alaska, Tennessee, New Mexico, North Carolina, Maine and Colorado.
The possible political consequences are clear in states like Kentucky, where Senate Minority Leader and leading ObamaCare critic Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is defending his seat against Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes.
Nearly 14,000 people in the state are set to lose their health plans, most of which are offered by Humana, the Morning Consult reported.
Remember when if you liked your health insurance, you could keep your health insurance?
Yeah, me neither.
