Justice Dept. Says Rights Law Doesn’t Protect Gays

Under Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the Justice Department has now stepped into the fray, as BuzzFeed reported on Wednesday night. In its court brief, the department noted that every Congress since 1974 has declined to add a sexual-orientation provision to Title VII, despite what it called “notable changes in societal and cultural attitudes.” The brief also claimed that the federal government, as the largest employer in the country, has a “substantial and unique interest” in the proper interpretation of Title VII.“In 2015, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, under Mr. […]

Public Health: ‘Skinny’ Obamacare Repeal Would Clash With Republicans’ Health Care Promises

Fewer people would probably be covered under Medicaid, too. Over the last few years, signups for Medicaid have increased substantially, even among people who could have been covered before Obamacare expanded eligibility. Many of those people presumably didn’t realize they qualified for Medicaid and first tried to buy private insurance because of the mandate, before learning that they could get Medicaid and not have to pay a premium. Without a mandate, fewer people are likely to find their way into the program.Continue reading the main storyThe Congressional Budget Office thinks that eliminating the individual mandate would have substantial negative effects on the insurance market, raising prices and reducing enrollment. It is hard to imagine that more insurers would wish to participate in this smaller, sicker market. The budget office still needs to evaluate a skinny repeal bill, but it seems likely that the reductions in coverage from a mandate repeal would save the federal government enough money for the bill to comply with budget instructions.It is worth considering these effects in the context of Republicans’ criticisms of Obamacare itself. On the Senate floor Tuesday, Mr. McConnell assailed the health law as building unstable insurance markets and providing too little consumer choice. A skinny repeal would probably exacerbate those effects.OPEN GraphicGraphic: How Senators Voted to Consider the Republican Health Care BillPresident Trump has often criticized Obamacare as making insurance premiums too costly, with deductibles that are too high […]

At Least 4 Dead in Crash of Small Plane in Georgia

At least four people are dead after a small plane crashed in northwestern Georgia on Saturday afternoon, the authorities there said.The plane, a Piper PA-23, went down around 4:44 p.m. in Chatsworth, Ga., about 17 miles south of the state’s border with Tennessee, federal aviation officials said.In a telephone interview late Saturday, a spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration said it did not appear that anyone on the ground was injured by the crash, and added that it was unknown whether any property was damaged.Early reports suggested the aircraft might have broken up in flight, the spokesman said, adding that the F.A.A. would investigate the crash.An employee at the Murray County Sheriff’s Office in Georgia confirmed the fatalities to The New York Times, but could not provide the identities of the victims. According to the sheriff’s office employee, Sheriff Gary Langford had not clarified how many people were on the plane, or whether investigators were searching for survivors.The National Transportation Safety Board said on Twitter late Saturday that it was also investigating the crash.Continue reading the main story […]

How Medicaid Works, and Who It Covers

? States also have the option of covering other groups, like children and pregnant women whose household incomes are higher than the federal thresholds, or young adults up to age 26 who were once in foster care.Continue reading the main story? The Affordable Care Act allowed a new optional group: any adults with income up to 138 percent of the poverty level, which would be $16,643 for an individual this year. Thirty-one states now offer Medicaid to this group.When was it created?? In 1965, as part of President Lyndon B. Johnson’s “Great Society.”? There was little political debate; the bigger fight was over creating Medicare, the program to cover the elderly, which Medicaid is often confused with.Is Medicaid an entitlementprogram?Yes. Anyone who meets the eligibility rules has a right to Medicaid coverage, and for now, states are guaranteed open-ended financial support from the federal government.How much does it cost?? Medicaid cost $553 billion in fiscal year 2016. Of that amount, $348.9 billion came from the federal government; the states paid $204.5 billion.? Medicaid accounts for 9 percent of federal domestic spending. For states, it is the biggest source of federal funding and the second-largest budget item, behind education.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyThank you for subscribing.An error has occurred. Please try again later.You are already subscribed to this email.View all New York Times newsletters.? The biggest costs in Medicaid are for the elderly and the disabled, often because of long-term care in nursing homes.? Washington pays 50 to 75 percent of Medicaid costs for most eligible groups, with poor states receiving more money.? Under the Affordable Care Act, the federal government initially covered all of the costs for the roughly 11 million people insured under the law’s expansion of Medicaid, who are largely adults without disabilities.? Under the law, Washington picks up 95 percent of state costs for the expansion of Medicaid this year, whittling down to 90 percent in 2020.Continue reading the main storyWhat changes are in store?? Both the House and Senate health bills would fundamentally change the way the federal government pays its share of Medicaid costs, setting a per-person limit on spending that would adjust annually for inflation.? The bills would also effectively end the Medicaid expansion, by sharply reducing how much the federal government pays for that population starting in 2020.? The result of these changes, according to independent analyses, would be major reductions in federal Medicaid spending over time.? Enrollment would drop, too, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, with states making it harder to qualify for the program and getting rid of certain benefits to make up for tightened federal spending.A version of this article appears in print on June 24, 2017, on Page A13 of the New York edition with the headline: What Is Medicaid, And Who Is Covered?.

The USDA’s Senseless Obstacles To A More Humane ‘Organic’

Every day, millions of Americans visit their grocery stores, relying on a range of food labels – some more meaningful than others – to help them make healthy, humane, and cost-efficient purchases. One of these labels is “USDA Organic,” a certification that presumably represents humane farm animal welfare standards. But sadly, that assumption is untrue, and has been for years. What’s even more reprehensible is that the federal agency directly responsible for ensuring that farmed food products are truthfully labeled – the USDA – is now acting in direct opposition to that mission. Origins of the USDA “Organic” Label The USDA began regulating organic agriculture in 2000 with the creation of the National Organic Program. For years, the ASPCA and other animal welfare organizations have pushed to include meaningful animal welfare standards in the definition of organic – including minimum indoor and outdoor space requirements for chickens, required enrichment for certain species, and a prohibition on certain kinds of painful physical alterations like cattle tail docking. In January 2017, we celebrated when the USDA National Organic Program announced it would adopt a comprehensive set of federal regulations governing the treatment of animals on USDA Organic-certified farms, based on the recommendation of the National Organics Standards Board. This decision was influenced by tens of thousands of supportive comments from consumers, farmers, companies and public interest groups, all submitted during an official open comment period. The regulations were set to go into effect in March. Enter Politics When the new Administration postponed implementation of the organics rule to May, one could argue this was the consequence of a government in transition, including the late appointment of Sonny Perdue as Secretary of Agriculture.
