          Senate Supports Moore But Not Cain for Fed       Comment   Translate Page      

When looking at the dumpster fire we call the American political environment, I think we can all agree that the last thing we really needed was more Herman Cain. As I explained yesterday in my Senate Republicans Wish the Democrats Could Filibuster Trump’s Nominees piece, the senior GOP leadership in Congress certainly feels that way. They were already begging rank-and-file senators to call the White House and warn them off nominating Cain for a position on the Federal Reserve before Cain called them a “bunch of yahoos” on Wednesday night.

Herman Cain, whose prospects for a seat on the Federal Reserve Board of Governors have grown shaky before President Donald Trump even nominates him, likely gave his detractors in the U.S. Senate more reason to oppose his confirmation with comments at a University of Kansas lecture Wednesday night.

Cain, 73, the long-time business executive and 2012 presidential candidate, warned against the dangers of socialism, renewable energy and Medicare for all. He described the Senate Banking Committee, which would vet him if he were nominated, “as a bunch of yahoos.” He compared the right to health care to the right to own a Cadillac, and said God would decide when it was time to stop using fossil fuels.

“When God is ready for us not to have fossil fuels, he’ll find a way,” the former Godfather Pizza CEO told the audience at the Vickers Lecture Series at School of Business.

Cain also likened himself to Dr. Martin Luther King, and said: “You reach a point in your successful career where making more money isn’t inspiring enough.”

Cain’s reward for those remarks was to learn that his nomination is almost certainly doomed.

A fourth Republican senator announced Thursday that he would oppose Herman Cain if President Trump nominated him to the Federal Reserve Board, all but dooming his potential appointment.

Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.), a close Trump ally, told reporters that “if I had to vote right now, there’s no way I could vote for” Cain. The president had floated the businessman for the Fed board last week.

Cramer’s opposition makes him the fourth Republican to denounce Cain’s potential nomination, effectively ending Cain’s chance at confirmation. GOP Sens. Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), Cory Gardner (Colo.) and Mitt Romney (Utah) all came out against Cain on Wednesday.

With four of the 53 Senate Republicans opposed to Cain, he would not reach the necessary 51 votes for confirmation without getting support from Democrats, which is unlikely.

I’m not certain, but it looks like perhaps the Senate Republicans are drawing a hard line against Cain so that’ll have some cover to accept the other insane nomination Trump is floating for the Fed.

Stephen Moore may have been held in contempt of court for failing to pay child support and alimony and he may owe more than $75,000 in taxes to the IRS, but that doesn’t seem disqualifying to a lot of Senate Republicans:

“I know Stephen Moore, he’s a smart man, he’s the head of Club for Growth,” said Sen. Richard Shelby (R-AL). “We have to do this in regular order, but I think he would probably be a good voice on the Fed. One, he’s got to be nominated first. Second, he’s got to be confirmed.”

“I said, ‘Pay your taxes; pay your support!’” Shelby said, when asked about Moore’s financial problems.

“Stephen is a solid guy, I know Stephen pretty well. I think Stephen has been right about a few things, with regard to the Fed’s treatment of interest rates, especially,” [Sen. Kevin] Cramer said. “I want to hear more about the specific issues surrounding some of his financial situations.”

The North Dakota senator added that he did not see Moore’s run-in with the IRS or the divorce settlement being disqualifying for his nomination if he had cleared up both issues.

So, the way it looks right now, the dumpster fire will get less Herman Cain and more Stephen Moore.

           Comment on Opinion: Teacher-only housing? Just say no, Berkeley by Whoa Mule       Comment   Translate Page      
Kerry, You should also point out that Lori is the only Council member who advocates housing subsidies for those highly paid COB employees, not just teachers. In fact, the 'Missing Middle' proposal your office just produced states; "...many City of Berkeley employees couldn’t afford to live where they work...a fire captain (making $142,000) with a stay at home spouse. Even a police officer (making $122,600) and a groundskeeper (making $69,300), or two librarians (making $71,700) couldn’t buy a house." Lori always understates COB employee's compensation by only referencing salary. She ignores the costly benefits which must be must be added to the salary to determine total compensation. A private sector worker must actively contribute to retirement planning, health care, etc. and can be fired. All of the professionals noted by Lori can qualify for hefty mortgages. Down payment assistance is what the teachers need and prefer. This proposal, to use Measure 'O' money to build apartments through a non-profit developer (PORK), is the most expensive program.

          Bernie definitively answers the question: Yes, MFA would "reduce Blue Cross to nose jobs" (and that's the point)      Comment   Translate Page      

 

Over the past month or two, I've written a couple of pieces which explored the whole "MFA would eliminate private health insurance" issue.

My main point was that while most MFA activists have long insisted that eliminating (or virtually eliminating) private health insurance companies is not only a feature but the entire point of moving to single payer, ever since Kamala Harris walked back her “get rid of all that!” comment in a CNN Town Hall the next day, I’ve seen some MFA activists fall all over themselves to suddenly insist that “no, no...there’d still be plenty of room for private insurance, really!”

This refers to the fact that the MFA bills (in both the House and Senate) do allow for private coverage of anything which isn’t covered by MFA itself...basically, supplemental coverage of things like elective procedures, experimental drugs, enhanced services (private hospital rooms? upgraded wheelchair models? etc) and so forth. However, how wide a range of services that would include has always been a bit fuzzy.

For example, the MFA language states that hospitalization would be “comprehensively” covered...but doesn’t list any limits on hospital days, for instance. It doesn’t clarify whether “comprehensive” coverage of medical devices includes the bare bones model or the enhanced one with digital readout and built-in wi-fi. Most of those specifications would be left up to the HHS Secretary and/or a board of some sort to determine. Whatever they come up with, presumably private supplemental insurance could cover the rest.

I whipped up this table which I believe is a fairly accurate depiction of what the House/Senate MFA bills would cover or not cover. As you can see, caveats above aside, it doesn’t leave much room...and again, that was kind of the point:

And yet, some still argued with me about this.

It's important to understand that I'm not making a value judgment about whether eliminating private health insurance companies is a good or bad thing--I just wanted MFA die-hard supporters to make it clear what the official stance on the issue is.

Well, guess what?

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) said private health insurance companies would be reduced to covering cosmetic surgery under his vision of a "Medicare for all" program.

..."What happens to those insurance companies after your plan is implemented?" O'Keefe asked.

"If you want cosmetic surgery—under Medicare for all, we cover all basic health care need—I suppose if you want to make yourself look a little bit more beautiful, work on that nose or your ears, they can do that," Sanders said.

"So basically BlueCross BlueShield would be reduced to nose jobs," O'Keefe said.

"Something like that, yeah," Sanders said.

Before anyone start screaming at me for linking to Free Beacon (a conservative site), note that the link was provided to me by a staunch MFA advocate, and the exchange and quotes above are 100% in context.

So there you have it: For good or for bad, under the House/Senate Medicare for All bills, Bernie Sanders himself says that private health insurance companies would indeed be reduced to a pathetic shadow of their former selves. Glad we cleared that up.

          Bernie's 'Medicare-for-All' plan includes paying for illegal immigrants      Comment   Translate Page      


Democratic socialist Bernie Sanders is right in line with the current liberal zeitgeist - in fact he says he was there first, and therefore is excused from being a white male - and his Medicare for All plan is being endorsed and embraced by his competition for the 2020 Democrat nomination.

As Fox News reported, that plan isn't just about no American paying for healthcare, or even nose jobs, it's about people who are not Americans, too. As in, people who are here illegally.

You see, rather than covering "citizens", the legislation Sanders unveiled this week would cover all "residents" in the United States. As Fox notes, that's "a shift from the Affordable Care Act, which limited benefits to citizens, nationals and "lawfully present" immigrants. The House bill also prohibits the government from denying benefits because of "citizenship status."

More than that, as the Washington Examiner pointed out on Friday, it even aspires to cover those who can't meet the loose definition of resident. "Even if an individual is not covered under a broad definition of 'residency' by the secretary of HHS, the federal government can take steps 'to ensure that every person in the United States has access to health care.'"

On Fox News on Saturday, Peter Doocy reported on the Medicare for all proposal, and if you listen, you can actually hear money burning. Watch:

          Global Breast Cancer Liquid Biopsy Market Emerging Top Key Players to Watch- Qiagen, Bio-Rad Laboratories, Myriad Genetics, Illumina in 2018-2026      Comment   Translate Page      

Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/12/2019 -- A biopsy is a tissue or cell sample taken from any part of the patient's body and examined in the lab for the detection of cancer. Liquid biopsy offers a real-time approach for the treatment of breast cancer. It is used for the collection and analysis of a sample of blood taken from the patient. Liquid biopsy uses body fluids as a sample for analysis, primarily blood. It analyses the presence of tumor cell-derived biomarkers such as circulating tumor cells, cell-free DNA (cfDNA) and their cargo proteins, and circulating cell-free RNA (cfRNA). A liquid biopsy is a noninvasive, simple, and cost-effective diagnostic tool for cancer. The amount of circulating biomarkers differ among cancer patients and healthy individuals. Therefore, these circulating biomarkers act as an important tool for both early diagnosis and monitoring of the progression of disease in advanced cancer stages to analyse the heterogeneity of tumor cells. Breast cancer is considered to be the second most common malignancy in the world, and therefore, liquid biopsy is a very important tool for breast cancer diagnosis and determination.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), breast cancer is the most frequently occurring cancer among women. It affects 2.1 million women each year and results in the highest number of cancer-related deaths among women. In 2018, it was evaluated that 627,000 women died from breast cancer, i.e. around 15% of all cancer-related deaths among women. While rates of breast cancer are higher among women in more developed regions, rates are elevating in nearly every region globally.

Key drivers of the breast cancer liquid biopsy market include rise in the prevalence of breast cancer, increase in propensity for non-invasive procedures, rise in awareness about cancer, increase in health care expenditure,  and initiatives and measures taken by government and global health organizations. Moreover, intensive research and development in the field of cancer, technological advancements, and an inclination toward personalized medicine are expected to enhance the growth of the market. However, insufficiency of trained professionals, high cost of the tests, and fewer reimbursement policies are expected to hinder the global breast cancer liquid biopsy market.

Based on circulating biomarkers, the global breast cancer liquid biopsy market can be classified into cell-free DNA (cfDNA), circulating tumor cells (CTCs), extracellular vesicles (EVs), and other circulating biomarkers. The cell-free DNA (cfDNA) segment is expected to hold a prominent share of the breast cancer liquid biopsy market. This is because of rise in research in breast cancer using cfDNA for the diagnosis of the disease and therapeutic monitoring. In terms of end-user, the global breast cancer liquid biopsy market can be categorized into reference laboratories, hospitals and physician laboratories, and other end-users. Other end-users comprise research institutes, academic research laboratories, pathology laboratories, etc. Reference laboratories is expected to be a prominent end-user segment, accounting for a significant share of the breast cancer liquid biopsy market. This is due to a rise in the number of liquid biopsy test samples received by reference laboratories for genetic testing because of their well-equipped set-up.

Based on geography, the global breast cancer liquid biopsy market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa.  North America and Europe accounted for a prominent share of the global breast cancer liquid biopsy market due to the presence of a number of biopharmaceutical companies research and academic institutes. Asia Pacific is expected to be a rapidly expanding region of the breast cancer liquid biopsy market due to a large population base, increased prevalence of cancer, and rise in investments by leading market players and hospitals.

          Illinois House passes bill calling for teaching work ethics in schools      Comment   Translate Page      
SPRINGFIELD – Public school students in Illinois might have to start learning about work ethics as early as the sixth grade under a bill that passed the state House on Friday.

Rep. Camille Lilly, a Chicago Democrat, sponsored the bill, which says that beginning in grade 6, “students should be introduced to the importance of developing and applying a work ethic in a variety of contexts.” That includes such concepts as professionalism, trustworthiness, integrity, initiative and respecting authority and arriving on time, according to the bill.

A number of Republicans opposed the bill, arguing that it would be an unfunded mandate on schools and teachers, and that most teachers were already providing that kind of instruction.

The legislation, House Bill 2263, passed by a vote of 69- 39. It now moves to the Senate.

Here’s a look at other bills that passed the House late this week:

HB 3462: Allows school districts to offer courses on hunting safety, based on possible guidelines developed by the State Board of Education. Vote: 114-0

HB 2847: States that employers cannot retaliate against an employee for requesting leave to donate blood, organs, or bone marrow. Vote: 114-0

HB 3302: Updates the state’s law to allow two years for someone to file complaints concerning delays and denials of special education services. Timeline contingent on the creation of the State Board of Education’s “student-specific corrective action plan.” Vote: 114-0

HB 190: Requires school districts to connect “at-risk” students with academic support programs, and to notify parents of such support programs, both within the school and the community. Vote: 91-22

HB 2540: Allows for the creation and regulation of blockchain companies in Illinois. Also tasks the state with producing a blockchain study and report, both for the regulation of it and for how it relates to the banking sector. Vote: 113-0

Estimated cost of $504,000 over next three years for a consultant to assist the study. The Illinois Department of Transportation will no longer be the office to contract out the study and data analysis, as it has in the past. Vote: 75-30

HB 2165: In order to get a high school diploma, at least one year of a student’s required three years of mathematics must be Algebra I, and one year must include geometry content. Vote: 115-0

          South Korea Rules Sixty Year Old Abortion Ban Unconstitutional      Comment   Translate Page      
On Thursday, Seoul’s Constitutional Court voted 7-to-2 to overturn the 66-year-old abortion ban in South Korea, which criminalized abortion except in cases of rape, incest or imminent danger to the women’s health, and was one of the strictest abortion bans in a developed country. The court ruled the abortion ban as unconstitutional and violated a pregnant women’s choice and “a pregnant woman’s right to self determination.” The court ordered Parliament to revise the abortion ban by deciding whether to restrict abortions in the late stages of a pregnancy, by the end of 2020. Until the deadline, the ban will still be enforced. If lawmakers do not meet the deadline, the ban will become void. Legalization paves the way for the first abortion rights in South Korea. Despite the overruling being met with praise from the majority, a small faction of Catholics and other Christian denominations have been vocal over their outrage. They held a protest outside of the court, whilst women’s health care advocates rallied on the other side. The anti-abortion protesters shouted demeaning terms like “murderers” and called the court ruling “against humanity.” Lee Yu-rim of the Sexual and Reproductive Rights Forum called the ruling a “historical milestone” and […]

          Abortion Clinic Director Says Newborn Baby Less Than 30 Days Old Not a “Legal Person”      Comment   Translate Page      
Americans across the country may be wondering why it’s so easy for abortion activists to oppose legislation that would protect newborn babies from infanticide.
That’s because they don’t believe that newborn infants are actually people.
This week, a North Carolina legislative committee approved a bill to protect newborns who survive abortions from infanticide. The vote follows another by the Texas Senate on legislation that also requires appropriate medical care for babies who survive abortions.
Senate Bill 359 requires doctors to provide the same care to an infant that survives an abortion as they give any other newborn. It includes a duty for health care practitioners to report any violations, and it makes those violations a class D felony, the same category as arson, armed robbery and voluntary manslaughter.
But one abortion advocate in the state opposes the bill.
Calla Hales is an abortion activist who is on the board of directors of the North Carolina affiliate of NARAL. She is also the director of …

          Illinois House passes bill calling for teaching work ethics in schools      Comment   Translate Page      
SPRINGFIELD – Public school students in Illinois might have to start learning about work ethics as early as the sixth grade under a bill that passed the state House on Friday.

Rep. Camille Lilly, a Chicago Democrat, sponsored the bill, which says that beginning in grade 6, “students should be introduced to the importance of developing and applying a work ethic in a variety of contexts.” That includes such concepts as professionalism, trustworthiness, integrity, initiative and respecting authority and arriving on time, according to the bill.

A number of Republicans opposed the bill, arguing that it would be an unfunded mandate on schools and teachers, and that most teachers were already providing that kind of instruction.

The legislation, House Bill 2263, passed by a vote of 69- 39. It now moves to the Senate.

Here’s a look at other bills that passed the House late this week:

HB 3462: Allows school districts to offer courses on hunting safety, based on possible guidelines developed by the State Board of Education. Vote: 114-0

HB 2847: States that employers cannot retaliate against an employee for requesting leave to donate blood, organs, or bone marrow. Vote: 114-0

Estimated cost of $504,000 over next three years for a consultant to assist the study.

HB 2165: In order to get a high school diploma, at least one year of a student’s required three years of mathematics must be Algebra I, and one year must include geometry content. Vote: 115-0

          Holy Smokes...did Washington State just pass a full-blown ACA Public Option??      Comment   Translate Page      

Back in January, 2nd-term Washington Governor and Democratic Presidential candidate Jay Inslee jumped fully onboard the Public Option train:

Inslee proposes ‘public option’ health-insurance plan for Washington

The proposal, which Inslee said is the first step toward universal health care, is geared in part to help stabilize the exchange, which has wrestled with double-digit premium increases and attempts by Republicans in Congress and President Donald Trump to dismantle the Affordable Care Act.

...The proposal would have the state Health Care Authority contract with at least one health-insurance carrier to offer qualified health coverage on the Washington Health Benefit Exchange, according to a summary of the proposal.

The plan would be designed with transparent and consistent deductibles, copays and coinsurance, according to the summary, and would “compete on premium price, provider networks, customer service, and quality.”

...Washington state Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler said getting the legislation passed will be difficult, but is necessary, especially for people buying health insurance on the individual market who don’t qualify for a subsidy.

...Cody said insurance companies know about the proposed legislation and are not “overjoyed” about the plan.

As I noted at the time:

Well no, they wouldn't be, would they (except for whichever carrier wins the state contract, I presume).

Since January, however, I haven't really written much about Inslee's proposal. I obviously hoped it would be serious, but figured it was mostly just meant to bolster his progressive street cred for his Presidential run.

Well, guess what just happened?

Democrats in Olympia push through governor’s 'green' agenda and public healthcare coverage bills

...Another key item on the governor’s agenda is the so-called “public option” socialized health care coverage measure, SB 5526. This bill would create subsidized state-funded public health plans managed by regulated insurance companies. It would require the State Insurance Commissioner and the Health Care Authority to set up the socialized plans by 2021.

Side note: The term "socialized" is being misused here in my opinion, since the proposal would be neither socialized medicine (i.e., the healthcare providers wouldn't actually work for the government), nor would it be single payer (since enrollees would still be paying premiums, deductibles & co-pays).

These plans would be available through the state’s health care exchange to all residents, but the state would pay subsidies to individuals with incomes of up to five times the poverty level. Premiums would be limited to no more than ten percent of adjusted gross income, and payments to doctors and other health care providers would be restricted to Medicare-level limits.

That's like a trifecta of what progressives were dreaming of a decade ago when the ACA itself was originally being developed and voted on: A true public option, more subsidies available to more people and perhaps most significantly, Medicare-level rate setting. I didn't even know about the "bumping up subsidies to 500% FPL" part, but that's obviously welcome as well! For comparison California is hoping to bump APTC assistance up to 600% FPL, and the federal House Dems ACA 2.0 bill would remove the upper-threshold cap altogether...but 500% would still be better than 400%, especially if the policies were priced based on Medicare-level reimbursement rates.

In other words, if this actually goes into effect, it would be huge.

So, what actually happened this week?

The bill passed the Senate last month by a 36-13 vote, after a House version of the proposal, HB 1523, passed the House on a 57-41 party-line vote. The final proposal of the bill was incorporated in SB 5526 and passed the House on Wednesday by a 54-38 vote, with six members excused.

Changes to the bill made by the House will have to be approved by the Senate before it goes to the governor for his signature.

Holy crap on a stick! How did I not hear about any of these developments over the past month?? If I'm understanding this correctly, all that stands between Washington State and a full-blown, robust Public Option being added to their ACA Healthcare Exchange is for Gov. Jay Inslee a final vote in the state Senate and a signature by Gov. Inslee...and voila???

Well, ok, as noted above, it wouldn't go into effect until 2021, but still...this seems like a potentially massive healthcare development.

Here's the actual text of the bill itself (or at least of the "original" version...there's also a "Substitute" version and an "Engrossed Substitute"...I have no idea which one actually passed, but they're alll about the same length. It's surprisingly brief, actually...just four pages:

AN ACT Relating to increasing the availability of quality, 2 affordable health coverage in the individual market; adding a new 3 section to chapter 43.71 RCW; adding a new section to chapter 42.56 4 RCW; adding a new section to chapter 41.05 RCW; creating a new section; and providing an expiration date.

BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF WASHINGTON:

NEW SECTION. Sec. 1

A new section is added to chapter 43.71 RCW to read as follows:

(1) The exchange, in consultation with the commissioner, the authority, an independent actuary, and other stakeholders, must establish up to three standardized health plans for each of the bronze, silver, and gold levels.

(a) The standardized health plans must be designed to reduce deductibles, make more services available before the deductible, provide predictable cost sharing, maximize subsidies, limit adverse premium impacts, reduce barriers to maintaining and improving health, and encourage choice based on value, while limiting increases in health plan premium rates.

(b) The silver standardized health plan must have an actuarial value between sixty-eight and seventy percent.

(c) The exchange may update the standardized health plans annually.

(d) The exchange must provide a notice and public comment period before finalizing each year's standardized health plans.

(e) The exchange must provide written notice of the standardized health plans to licensed health carriers by January 31st before the year in which the health plans are to be offered on the exchange.

(2)(a) Beginning January 1, 2021, any health carrier offering a qualified health plan on the exchange must offer one silver standardized health plan and one gold standardized health plan on the exchange. If a health carrier offers a bronze health plan on the exchange, it must offer one bronze standardized health plan on the exchange.

(b) For plan years 2021 through 2024, a health carrier offering a standardized health plan under this section may also offer nonstandardized health plans on the exchange subject to the following:

(i) For plan years 2021 and 2022, a health carrier may offer an unlimited number of nonstandardized health plans on the exchange;

(ii) For plan years 2023 and 2024, a health carrier may not offer more than three nonstandardized health plans in each of the bronze, silver, and gold levels on the exchange; and

(iii) The actuarial value of nonstandardized silver health plans offered on the exchange may not be less than the actuarial value of the standardized silver health plan.

(c) For health plan years beginning in 2025, a health carrier may not offer nonstandardized health plans in any metal level on the exchange.

(d) A health carrier offering a standardized health plan on the exchange under this section must continue to meet all requirements for qualified health plan certification under RCW 43.71.065 32 including, but not limited to, requirements relating to rate review and network adequacy.

NEW SECTION. Sec. 2.

A new section is added to chapter 42.56 RCW to read as follows:

Any data submitted by health carriers to the health benefit exchange for purposes of establishing standardized benefit plans under section 1 of this act are confidential and exempt from disclosure under this chapter.

NEW SECTION. Sec. 3.

A new section is added to chapter 41.05 RCW to read as follows:

(1) The authority, in consultation with the health benefit exchange, must contract with one or more health carriers to offer silver and gold qualified health plans on the Washington health benefit exchange for plan years beginning in 2021. A qualified health plan offered under this section must meet the following criteria:

(a) The qualified health plan must be a standardized health plan established under section 1 of this act;

(b) The qualified health plan must meet all requirements for qualified health plan certification under RCW 43.71.065 including, but not limited to, requirements relating to rate review and network adequacy;

(c) The qualified health plan must incorporate recommendations of the Robert Bree collaborative and the health technology assessment program; and

(d) The qualified health plan's fee-for-service rates for providers and facilities may not exceed the medicare rates for the same or similar covered services in the same or similar geographic area. For reimbursement methodologies other than fee-for-service, the aggregate amount the qualified health plan pays to providers and facilities may not exceed the equivalent of the aggregate amount the qualified health plan would have reimbursed providers and facilities using fee-for-service medicare rates.

(2) When implementing this section, the director must use a request for qualifications process. The director must review the qualifications of health carriers seeking to offer qualified health plans under this section and may negotiate with the health plans to the extent necessary to refine the health carriers' responses. The director must contract with all health carriers who meet the minimum qualifications.

(3) Nothing in this section prohibits a health carrier offering qualified health plans under this section from offering other health plans in the individual market.

NEW SECTION. Sec. 4.

(1) The Washington health benefit exchange, in consultation with the health care authority and the insurance commissioner, must develop a plan to implement and fund premium subsidies for individuals whose modified adjusted gross incomes are less than five hundred percent of the federal poverty level and who are purchasing individual market coverage on the exchange. The goal of the plan is to enable participating individuals to spend no more than ten percent of their modified adjusted gross incomes on premiums. The plan must also include an assessment of providing cost-sharing reductions to plan participants.

(2) The Washington health benefit exchange must submit the plan, along with proposed implementing legislation, to the appropriate committees of the legislature by November 15, 2020.

(3) This section expires January 1, 2021.

I keep thinking that I must be missing something here. The bill is only four typed pages, it seems to have quietly flown through both the WA state House and Senate with little notice outside the state, and there's zero details on where the funding for either the public option itself or the subsidies for those earning 400-500% FPL would come from.

There's nothing about submitting a 1332 waiver approval request to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid, which either means a) it wouldn't be needed since WA operates their own exchange and they intend on financing the entire PO using state funds, or b) that's covered by a separate document.

It's worth noting that Nevada actually pulled off a similar hat trick a couple of years ago (it was a Medicaid buy-in bill, not a Medicare-level Public Option)...and like this Washington development, that one also somehow flew under the radar until it was actually mostly through the process:

The Nevada state legislature quietly, and surprisingly, passed a Medicaid buy-in option for anyone in the state. I wrote about this back in April, but even I didn't think much of it at the time--I assumed it was more of a symbolic proposal than anything, or that it would die in committee at most. The details are important, of course, but assuming they make sense, this is exactly the sort of approach I would recommend in trying to gradually transition to some type of universal single-payer like system.

The biggest questions I'd want answered are 1) What type of coverage does Medicaid actually have in Nevada? It varies widely from state to state, so if NV's is pretty comprehensive, awesome, but if it's skimpy, that's not very helpful; 2) What sort of premiums/deductibles/co-pays would buy-in enrollees be looking at?; 3) What sort of impact would this have on the state budget?; and most significantly, 4) How many Nevada doctors/hospitals would accept these enrollees? Remember, the reason a significant chunk of healthcare providers don't accept Medicaid patients is because it only reimburses them around 50¢ on the dollar compared to private insurance.

Unfortunately, while the bill passed quickly through both the Nevada House and Senate, it was ultimately vetoed by then-GOP Governor Brian Sandoval.

The difference in Washington State, of course, is that not only do they have a progressive Democratic Governor...he's the one who actually proposed the Public Option in the first place.

In terms of funding...again, I see nothing.

How much would it actually cost? I'll run some very rough estimates tomorrow.

Stay tuned...

          Saturday night owls: 'Why the Highlander Attack Matters'      Comment   Translate Page      

Robin D.G. Kelley and Makani Themba at The Nation write—Why the Highlander Attack MattersThe arson attack on the Highlander Center, a longtime leader in racial and social-justice work, is not merely a hate crime—it’s an act of war: 

News of the March 29 arson attack on the Highlander Research and Education Center in New Market, Tennessee, shocked and angered progressives across the country. Fortunately, no one was hurt, but the blaze destroyed Highlander’s main office building, along with valuable organizational records and historic documents that had not been archived at the University of Wisconsin and other repositories. Yet, for the many familiar with its storied history of movement-building, research, radical education, and cultural work, the devastation goes much deeper than property loss. It’s as if a sanctuary was violated.

owl

And violated it was. Making crystal clear their terrorist intention, the attackers left their mark on the parking lot by spray-painting a symbol derived from the fascist Romanian Iron Guard during the 1930s that is commonly used by white supremacists. The same symbol was painted on one of the guns used in the recent murderous attack on two mosques in New Zealand, and scrawled alongside swastikas on the University of Tennessee Knoxville campus in November.

The attack on Highlander is the latest in a rising wave of racist terror targeting black, brown, and indigenous communities, immigrants, Muslims, Jews, and gender non-conforming folks. For Highlander’s co-executive directors, Ash-Lee Woodard Henderson and the Rev. Allyn Maxfield-Steele, the attack was disheartening, frustrating, and terrifying, but hardly surprising. “Because of our history,” they wrote in a recent press release, “we are not surprised that this space, one where marginalized people working across sectors, geographies, and identities, show up consistently, has been repeatedly targeted over our 87 years of existence.”

The leadership, staff, and many activists associated with Highlander’s ongoing social-justice work understand the attack as not merely a hate crime by misguided individuals but an act of war. Situated on about 200 acres of land just east of Knoxville, Tennessee, Highlander has long been on the front lines of a protracted war on workers, poor farmers, people of color, and other marginalized communities. In a region ravaged by the worst excesses of capitalist and racist exploitation—plant closures, environmental catastrophe from coal mining, dispossession, opioid addiction, state-sanctioned violence—Highlander is one of the few progressive safe spaces where movements connect, dream, and build for the local, national, and global fight back.

BLAST FROM THE PAST

On this date at Daily Kos in 2007Another glowing Reid piece:

While the GOP leadership is under assault from their incompetence and corruption, ours continues to get glowing praise.

There's nothing fancy about Harry Reid, the Democratic leader in the Senate. Sartorially, he is a symphony in brown. He hails from a Nevada eye-blink called Searchlight, but isn't at ease in the spotlight. "I would just as soon never have a press conference," he says. An amateur boxer in his youth, the 65-year-old Reid's idea of a good time is to watch reruns of famous bouts on ESPN Classic. A favorite was on the other night: the 1955 epic between Archie Moore and Rocky Marciano. "Moore flattened Rocky early," Reid said. "Had him down, almost out. But by patience and sheer determination Marciano came back, round by round, and won. Both guys were cut and bloody when it was over." [...]

Reid, with 37 years in politics, is prospering partly by doing what shrewd boxers do in the early rounds to survive: let the other guy overreach. Proudly unphilosophical, he thinks the Democratic Party needs no soul-searching. "I believe in simplicity," he says. "Health care, pensions, energy independence--that's my agenda." [...]

While Reid himself is low-key, the allies he organizes throughout the city--polltakers, consultants, liberal lobbyists--are not. He has commissioned virtual "war rooms," which coordinate the use of focus-grouped attack language in ads and speeches on two main issues. The first was Social Security. Now comes the war of words over the Senate's hallowed "filibuster rule," which allows a minority of 41 members to use the privilege of talking endlessly to kill any legislative action--such as a judicial nomination they don't like. Reid's poll-tested line of attack: ending the filibuster rule would destroy the separation of powers envisioned by the Founding Fathers. It's not clear whether Frist has the support—or the nerve—to press for a vote on ending the rule. His own advisers are divided.

          California Is Trying to Turn College Health Centers Into Abortion Clinics with Taxpayer Dollars (Again)       Comment   Translate Page      

Last week, the California State Senate Health Committee approved in a 7-3 vote Senate Bill 24, known as the “College Student Right to Access Act.” This bill would amend the state’s public health code to require student health care clinics at all 34 California public colleges and universities to “offer abortion by medication techniques”—a.k.a “the abortion pill”—starting on January 1, 2023.

You may remember a similar bill (SB 320) that went forward last year, sponsored by the same senator, Connie Leyva (D-Chino). Thankfully, this was vetoed by then Democrat Governor Jerry Brown, who saw the mandate as “unnecessary” since “the services required by this bill are widely available off-campus.” In his veto statement he says that “according to a study supposed by supporters of this legislation, the average distance to abortion providers in campus communities varies from five to seven miles, not an unreasonable distance.”

The report he is referring to was commissioned by the University of California San Francisco (UCSF), which is advocating in favor of the campus abortion mandate! But thankfully, a distance of five to seven miles was too short even for Governor Brown, and only showed how college campuses are targeted by the abortion industry.

SB 24 and last year’s SB 320 are virtually identical, with some changes in grant amounts and deadlines for implementation; other than that, they are the same in function. This means Sen. Leyva and other sponsors of the bill made no effort to fix the serious flaws with this type of mandate raised by both sides of the debate. Yes, even the universities themselves are apprehensive!

To bring this bill up for a second time without addressing its many serious flaws shows a reckless disregard for the 400,000 young women on these 34 public campuses.

In a previous blog, you can see what potential risks and liabilities would come with forcing colleges to dispense the abortion pill. Just two concerns (among many) about SB 24 are that this type of mandate once again has vague funding language and has no mention of support for women who choose not to abort and instead choose to parent the child.

Like the previously failed mandate, SB 24 claims it would only take effect after $10.2 million in private funds have been raised for the costs of equipment and “readiness” as the legislation states, but the language of the bill leaves open the possibility of taxpayer-funded abortion after 2023. It provides no safeguards to prohibit state funds or student fees from paying for the ongoing support of the program. Public funding of abortion is something we already know that a majority of Americans strongly oppose, yet SB 24 takes no precautions to prevent that.

In addition, this legislation offers no maternal assistance for women who choose not to abort! It just supports abortions. The Institute for Women’s Policy Research found that over a quarter of all undergraduate students are raising dependent children—yet no assistance is offered for them. Parenthood and education are compatible, and there are plenty of women who can prove that. To have a bill that purposefully goes out of its way to take away women’s children rather than help them raise their babies and continue their education is a slap in the face to “women’s empowerment” and grossly disregards the human dignity of the unborn.

Any abortion, no matter what stage of pregnancy it occurs at, is a life-changing experience. Even an early-stage chemical abortion can be quite traumatic. What makes chemical abortions unique from surgical abortions is that the mother will have to see and dispose of the remains of her aborted child. It is more than obvious that mental trauma would occur to a young woman who sees her abortion take place in her college dorm room or in a student health center bathroom. Is this really a good thing for a young college woman? I think not.

All in all, this type of bill could care less for women—it only cares about expanding the business of abortion.

Abortion proponents consider this mandate as model legislation for other states to follow, and California is vying to be the first state to implement it.

The California State Senate Health Committee passed the bill. It will now be referred to the State Senate’s Education Committee before going before the full Senate for a vote.

Sitting California governor Gavin Newsom has already insinuated his support for the bill, and this has given activists for SB 24 more optimism. However, it is still unknown how much support will actually come from the public universities themselves who remain apprehensive of the considerable liability that they would have to take on.

To take action on this reckless bill, you can contact California legislators on our action page.

New ‘Medicare for All’ Bill Would Kick 181 Million Off Private InsuranceIndependent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, a self-described “socialist,” is doubling down on his efforts to give federal officials total control over Americans’ health care.The senator has just unveiled the Medicare for All Act of 2019 with 13 leading Senate Democrats, including fellow contenders for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination: Sens. Cory Booker of New Jersey, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Kamala Harris of California, and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.Americans should find this bill chilling. If passed, it would essentially abolish all private health coverage in America, regardless of whether Americans like their current plans.Here are the specifics.Outlawing Current CoverageThis bill, title by title and section by section, is almost identical in substance to the Medicare for All Act of 2017 (S.1804) introduced last Congress.

Introduction
SCUBA (Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus) Diving is becoming increasingly popular, with an estimated 306 million dives made in the United States between 2006 and 2015.[1] During that same time there were 658 diving deaths in the United States and nearly 14,000 emergency department (ED) visits.[1] While the pathophysiology underlying many diving injuries is complex, the basic treatments for many life-threatening diving injuries are the same (Figure 1). It is important to understand the relatively simple therapies that underlie appropriate care for these injuries.[2,3]

Pathophysiology
The underlying pathophysiologic process of nearly all diving is the compression or expansion of trapped gasses within the human body. Injuries can be further subdivided into either barotraumatic injuries or decompression illness (DCI). Barotrauma refers to tissue damage which occurs when a gas filled cavity rapidly changes volume, most commonly affecting the respiratory system as well as the air-filled portions of the ear.[2]

DCI, on the other hand, is caused by dissolved gasses forming trapped bubbles within the tissues. When a diver breathes compressed air at depth, the partial pressures of gasses dissolved in the blood and tissues increases. Under normal conditions, a diver ascends slowly, allowing the dissolved gasses to diffuse from the tissues and escape via exhalation. However, in the case of rapid ascent, the trapped gasses expand, forming bubbles throughout the body, most commonly the large joints.[3]

Considerations in the History, Physical Exam, and Initial Investigations
Diagnosis of SCUBA diving injuries is primarily clinical, based on characteristic findings during the history and physical exam. The chief complaint will typically indicate the organ system involved and specific care must be taken to specify the timing of symptom onset (i.e. descent, ascent, or after ascent). Important historical considerations include dive information (i.e. depth), type of gas used, recent travel, trauma, or stings during the dive, as well as past medical history including lung and neurological diseases. A focused physical exam should always include careful auscultation of the lungs and a thorough neurological exam. While labs and imaging are not always necessary to confirm the diagnosis, they are recommended for all patients with suspected decompression illness or cardiopulmonary symptoms.[2] Initial investigations may include a chest x-ray, electrocardiogram, complete blood count, cardiac enzymes, and serum electrolytes.[2]
