Senate Health Care Bill Includes Deep Cuts to Medicaid

More moderate Republican senators, such as Dean Heller of Nevada, expressed their own qualms, as did the American Hospital Association, the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network and the Association of American Medical Colleges.VideoHow the G.O.P. Health Bill Would Change MedicaidThe reporter Margot Sanger-Katz examines how the Republican health plan aims to roll back a program that insures nearly one in five Americans.By MARGOT SANGER-KATZ, ROBIN STEIN and SARAH STEIN KERR on Publish Date June 22, 2017.Photo by Doug Mills/The New York Times.Watch in Times Video »embed “We are extremely disappointed by the Senate bill released today,” the medical school association wrote. “Despite promises to the contrary, it will leave millions of people without health coverage, and others with only bare bones plans that will be insufficient to properly address their needs.”Once promised as a top-to-bottom revamp of the health bill passed by the House last month, the Senate bill instead maintains its structure, with modest adjustments. The Senate version is, in some respects, more moderate than the House bill, offering more financial assistance to some lower-income people to help them defray the rapidly rising cost of private health insurance.Continue reading the main storyBut the Senate bill would make subsidies less generous than under current law. It would lower the income limit for receiving subsidies to cover insurance premiums to 350 percent of the poverty level, or about $42,000 for an individual, from 400 percent.Older people could be disproportionately hurt because they pay more for insurance in general. Both chambers’ bills would allow insurers to charge older people five times as much as younger ones; the limit now is three times.The Senate measure, like the House bill, would phase out the extra money that the federal government has provided to states as an incentive to expand eligibility for Medicaid. And like the House measure, it would put the entire Medicaid program on a budget, ending the open-ended entitlement that now exists.It would also repeal most of the tax increases imposed by the Affordable Care Act — a capital gains tax cut for the affluent would be retroactive for this year — to pay for expanded coverage, in effect handing a broad tax cut to the affluent in a measure that would also slice billions of dollars from Medicaid, a health care program that serves one in five Americans, not only the poor but almost two-thirds of people in nursing homes […]

The Trump administration may shrink Bears Ears national monument.

In an April 26 directive, President Trump called for a review of 27 national monuments created after 1996, claiming there should be more public input on monument designations.

Public lands experts suggested the order was a ploy to open new turf for energy exploration. They said monuments receive plenty of public comment, both from specialists and average Joes.

The experts appear to be right.

Ahead of a June 10 deadline for the Interior Department’s review of Utah’s Bears Ears — among the newest national monuments, and a particularly contentious one — the department received a flood of nearly 150,000 opinions. The great majority implore the administration to leave Bears Ears and the other monuments be.

Poring over 150,000 missives is a definite tl;dr situation — so we pulled some highlights.

“This monument holds immense meaning for the indigenous peoples in the area and to destroy it would continue the erasure of indigenous beliefs and further the genocide of indigenous cultures,” wrote one commenter.

“The air that I breathed in was so much different from the air that I breathed in when I used to live in Korea,” wrote one respondent reminiscing about a trip to Bears Ears. “The visit reminded why our family had immigrated from Korea in first place [sic].”

But it wasn’t all adulations for our “national treasures.”

One comment labeled the designation of Bears Ears an “unjust and unfair federal land grab” — a sentiment echoed by the oil and gas industry. “Undo everything Obama did !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” read another.

The following commenter’s use of caps lock was not at all unique among the responses: “THESE LANDS ARE REAL AND PROVIDE AN REAL CHANCE TO EXPERIENCE SPIRITUAL CONNECTION AND PHYSICAL WONDER. WITHOUT THESE PLACES WE’LL ALL TRAPPED IN OUR IDEOLOGIES AND LIFE BECOMES HELL.”

“Must we destroy everything?” asked one person, while another chided Trump and Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke to “show some respect for your goddamn country you monkeys.”

And one sly commenter sought to end the discussion on monuments before it began, appealing to Zinke’s unwavering adulation for a former president: “Teddy Roosevelt had the right idea!”

Will The Future Blame Us For Donald Trump’s Presidency?

Remember when we had to deal with a story like President Obama wearing a tan suit for like a week? What about when something as silly as Howard Dean yelling, “YEAAAAH!” at a rally could destroy his entire campaign for president? Back then, something as miniscule as how you sound or what you wore could be played on repeat for days on every news channel. But now? […]

Trump Adviser Gary Cohn: Coal Doesn’t ‘Make That Much Sense Anymore’

Top White House economic adviser contradicted President Donald Trump’s message on coal, telling reporters aboard Air Force One that “coal doesn’t even make that much sense anymore as a feedstock.” Cohn also touted renewable energy including solar and wind. On the campaign trail, Trump often said he would support coal miners and scale back regulations that hurt the industry, slamming Democrats’ “war on coal.” The Trump administration is set to soon decide on whether to remain in the Paris climate accord, which was agreed to under the Obama administration. As a candidate, Trump indicated he would pull the U.S. out of it. Read more at The Daily Beast. […]

States And Cities Can Save The Paris Pact

There are influential, bipartisan and surprising allies urging President Donald Trump to keep the United States in the Paris climate agreement. They include some of the world’s biggest fossil energy companies, members of both parties in Congress, CEOs, governors, veterans, and farmers.But with Trump laying waste to President Obama’s climate policies, with his emasculation of the EPA and his plans to starve federal climate science, it is unclear what the U.S. government could add to the success of the Paris accord.In my previous post, I offered one idea to break the impasse between Trump’s advisors on whether the U.S. should remain in or pull out of the Paris agreement. First, the president would take a blood oath not to interfere with state and local climate action. Second, he would aggregate emission reduction commitments from states, cities and corporations to give substance to the U.S. role in the accord. Third, he would faithfully enforce any federal climate policies approved by Congress or upheld by the courts.On the first point, Trump already says he supports state rights. He reportedly told governors earlier this year that he wants states to craft their own policies — including environmental rules — without interference from the federal government.A test of his sincerity is on the horizon regarding fuel-efficiency standards for vehicles.

Let’s Change The Conversation From Climate Change To ‘Shared Benefits’

Last September, I emailed President Obama. His response helped me to focus on what matters. He wrote,“Progress doesn’t come easily, and it hasn’t always followed a straight line. Keeping our world’s air, water, and land clean and safe takes work from all of us, and voices like yours are sparking the conversations that will help us get to where we need to be. I will continue pushing to protect the environment as long as I am President and beyond, and I encourage you to stay engaged as well.”But I worry that adults will never agree on climate change. The issue has become too political. The words “climate change” have even been scrubbed from government websites […]

A Matter Of Wildlife And Death

Last Monday, President Trump signed H.J. Res. 69, a joint House/Senate resolution that nullifies a Fish and Wildlife Service rule published last year. The overturned rule banned “predator control” on or near federal wildlife refuges in Alaska unless, per the Fish and Wildlife Service, “it is determined necessary to meet refuge purposes; is consistent with Federal laws and policy; and is based on sound science in response to a conservation concern.”Right off the bat, any rule mentioning “sound science” is in trouble under a Trump administration. Add intense opposition from the National Rifle Association, and it’s amazing that it took Congress and Trump this long to attack it.So what kinds of practices will the Trump administration now allow on our federal wildlife refuges? Activities that include shooting or trapping wolves while in their dens with pups, killing bear cubs or mothers with cubs, hunting for grizzly bears from airplanes, baiting grizzly bears with food, and trapping bears with cruel leg-hold traps or wire snares.Despite its publicity stunts, this administration doesn’t truly care about conservation. It doesn’t believe wildlife refuges should be managed to protect species or to maintain biodiversity. It’s all about ensuring a maximum yield of prey species like elk, moose, and caribou for the real apex predator: humans. So if having more elk requires killing wolf pups in their dens, then so be it.To be clear, the Obama administration’s Fish and Wildlife Service rule (which Trump revoked) never tried to stop all hunting […]
