Bunker Dispatches

One was from the federal government warning broke states not to use covid money for debt repayments and the other was from a task force releasing a report on “recommended strategies to improve health outcomes and manage costs for members of the State Health Benefits Program (SHBP) and School Employees’ Health Benefits Program (SEHBP).”

Both designed as propaganda for the masses to provide the appearance that we have representative, competent governance that respects the rule of law while ignoring the underlying perversions within the system.

For example, as relating to New Jersey:

The rule could also affect New Jersey, which sold nearly $3.7 billion of bonds last year to cover its shortfall during the pandemic. Assembly Republican Leader Jon Bramnick, a Republican, in April had called for Governor Phil Murphy, a Democrat, to use some of the federal aid to pay down the state’s debt. “The guidance is interim and not yet final, and we will continue to evaluate the allowable uses of ARP funds in conjunction with State needs,” said Melinda Caliendo, a spokesperson for the state treasury.

Translation: We will use the covid money to pay for what we are already spending money on and the savings from that we will use for debt repayments. Try and stop us!

As for those recommendations made up by union officials and government employees:

Together, SHBP and SEHBP covered approximately 781,000 people at a cost to the State and local participating employers of about $5.79 billion in 2019. The State of New Jersey spent about 8.4% of its budget on these programs, or about $3.2 billion in 2019.

These activities are projected to require an investment of $8-10 million in the first year of implementation, assuming the SHBP/SEHBP were to adopt most (or all) of the recommendations outlined in the pages that follow. Additional investment would be necessary beyond the first year of implementation, but these investments are expected to be fully offset by same-year savings in the form of reduced health care claims costs.

Translation: Don’t mess with our benefits.
