Re: “Trump moves to strike down entire Affordable Care Act, in tune with Leslie Rutledge

The Trump/AR legislator supporting voters deny the reality of their health status and the impact of social policies by their leaders --- hey I'm not obese or diabetic - hey my state rep would not sell me out to corporate overlords - hey, my kids really can read and do math

Its the Ar "pretty good syndrome" - but compared to what? Don't look elsewhere in the country and certainly not overseas -- complicit in their own demise

Life in 2019 -- facing the corruption of our state and society:

Lets face it -- this kind of legislation is a form of corruption (plus the tenant bill, or the tobacco tax etc etc)

Re: “Headlines and the open line

Ohio work requirements approved for Medicaid - state #15
###############

"The Commonwealth Fund, a not-for-profit private foundation supporting independent healthcare research, released a study this week that found that Medicaid work requirements could contribute to a loss of revenue for hospitals across all states that implement them. The foundation estimated the total loss to be between $3.7 billion and $4.1 billion in 2019 alone.

The Commonwealth Fund analyzed 157 hospitals in Ohio and estimated a 12.5% to 13.7% drop in Medicaid revenue per hospital after the implementation of work requirements."

Re: “Friday at last: The open line

Social cues/bias alert
The college entrance scandal .... focuses a lot on the 2 Hollywood actresses.
See today's editorial cartoon
The cliche is that this is a failure of the Hollywood elite (aka liberal democrat ethos)
When in reality most of the folks in this scam were successful businessmen, real estate tycoons, and lawyers ....(aka republican donors types)

Its all in the spin these days ... equal opportunity scam or an opportunity to apply expedient political tarnish?
