On this week's program, host Doug Field is back in the studio with special guests from Visa and Benz Communications for discussions on flexible spending accounts, employee engagement and more.
The first guest is be Renee Lutzen, Senior Director of Healthcare at Visa. In this interview, Renee and the hosts discuss a new survey from Visa and WageWorks that found 60 percent of employers opted to offer a health care FSA with a carryover option this year -- up from 49 percent just a year ago and more than double from 2013. These employers agree the health care FSA carryover option -- now in its third year -- is also driving employee participation. The survey provides a year-over-year look at the growth of employer selection of health care FSAs, featuring the carryover option, and what employers see as the biggest benefits and barriers to employee participation.
For the second segment, Jennifer Benz, CEO and Founder, Benz Communications, a boutique benefits communication firm, joins the program to discuss the findings of a recent survey on employee engagement. Benz Communications recently released a joint national survey with Quantum Workplace that gathered responses from more than 2,000 U.S. employees, revealing that too often workers miss out on meaningful cost conversations with medical providers -- talks that could mean the difference in millions for employers in claims costs. In this interview, Jen walks through the survey’s top-line findings and offer strategies to achieve effective employee engagement and create employees who are truly capable and confident health care consumers.

He an outspoken, yet well spoken, defender of all those who cannot or will not defend themselves.As a Mayor, he has openly and diligently attacked the sale and use of meth-amphetamines, theft, and other crimes against persons and property that have plagued many of our nations cities. Administrative controls, written policy, both financial and governmental responsibilities and governmental transparencies are already being put in place. He is striving to reinstate legal transparency, governmental responsibility, and integrity into the community that has been unavailable for quite some time. While I am responsible for the safety and leadership of anywhere between 1,900 and 8,000 civilians on any given time of the day. The attention of his focus is not to just fix the immediate problems or grievances that he may be faced with at any particular moment, but to ensure that each and every concern, complaint or issue is addressed by City Hall, the Administrative Staff or the applicable Municipal Department in a timely manner that ensures compliance with all applicable federal, state, county and local laws.

Jonathan Bydlak and Rebekah Johansen of Coalition to Reduce Spending join Michael to talk about their organization. The Coalition attacks spending like Grover Norquist's Group, Americans for Tax Reform, attacks taxes. The group offers candidates a pledge which promises not to increase spending without an offset elsewhere. Senator Ted Cruz, South Carolina’s Mark Sanford, Georgia’s Doug Collins and Paul Broun, and Ohio’s Steve Chabot have signed the pledge.
The group discusses spending trends, how wars impact spending, as well as mechanisms to keep spending in check. They also talk about the Budget Control Act (BCA) caps and Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO) cuts. Bydlak and Johansen applaud members who are beginning to turn to these as avenues to curtail spending and programs ripe for cutting.
The Coalition advocates for a holistic approach to spending rather than a partisan approach where the left refuses to examine entitlements while the right views the defense budget as sacrosanct. However, it seems many new conservative house members are more open to the idea of putting Pentagon programs on the chopping block when these projects fail to deliver objectives or become white elephants.
Coalition to Reduce Spending advocates an approach that would keep the government spending within its means. They realize that the government spends money. They just encourage the government to take a flexible approach that allows it so spend money, but just asks that an increase in a budget for one program or project be met with an offset from another program or project.

You mean well. This year, you'll do better, you told yourself. You planned as much as you can to make sure you ABSOLUTELY DO NOT spend too much again. Not this year.
But for some reason, there's that impromptu party, the last minute dinner, and/or those last minute gifts and now...you've done it again: overspend. Dangit!
Tonight, on my radio show at 6:00pm HST, we'll talk about how we can get back on track with our spending, so that we don't feel the hit too hard in January from the holiday overspending.
Last year we around this time we had many shows and discussion about spending and giving during the holidays. Our focus then, as it is this year is about how not only to prioritizing your spending during the holidays, but those other areas of your life beyond the holidays. What do you need now? What should you give now? How is what you do now going to affect your 2014? What will you need later? Don't we all prioritize based on what's important to us?
Hosts: Rev. N. Dunlap, Jr. and Rev. Warren Feaster and Adia Sanders
