Analysis of the economic impacts of Biden's tax plan from the (non-partisan) Tax Foundation. Some lowlights:
-585K fewer jobs
-1.51% reduction in GDP
-less after tax income for all taxpayers
All this while still not covering the cost of the Biden-Sanders Unity Task Force Recommendations... so we all get less and deficits continue to grow. I think we can all agree that what we need now is less jobs, a smaller economy, less money, and more debt, right? 🙄

I recently got a remote job and I'm living with my parents, I really want to move out but part of me feels like it's not practical to rent right now when I could save up and wait for the real estate market to cool down. However I'm kind of tired of being practical and I just want my own space to live my own life and to have the possibility of maybe bring somebody home at night without having being interrogated by my parents I feel kind of stupid but is it stupid to prioritize that.
Has there been any thoughts about remote employees and finding people that are in the same or a similar profession meeting up in coworking groups? I won't have the option to work in an office with my peers and I find this a real enticing option to be able to meet different people that share a passion, but not necessarily a team or company. I would be excited to get input on what this could look like and where a congregation during working hours could take place or be organized
Last Friday someone accidentally sent me an inappropriate video featuring my boss behaving quite badly outside of the office but mentioning work. 🤔 They know I have it and nothing was said this week. Business as usual. I have no questions, just sharing.
I am really entertainined by reading articles on CEOs raises compared to average employees salaries. Especially if the articles have quotes from CEOs, it's like they rationalize their 3 million annual increase in double talk and buzz words. Meanwhile, everyone in accounting will be lucky if they get a cost of living adjustment outside of the normal pay increase.

I went to a physical exam, the doctor suggested a bunch of tests. I said I only want to do preventative ones. He said one diagnostic test is about $300, so I agreed to take it. Because of this one diagnostic test, everything is billed as diagnostic. I got 2k medical bills for the visit, preventative tests and the aforementioned test. Is there anything I can do? I talked to insurance and doctor but they wont budge.
