"Report: Obamacare's '80/20' rule has led to nearly $4 billion in savings" | examiner.com | FDW's Daily Scoops | Scoop.it

Franklin Delano Williams's insight:

"Still, here’s what it seems is about to happen: millions of Americans will suddenly gain health coverage, and millions more will feel much more secure knowing that such coverage is available if they lose their jobs or suffer other misfortunes....


So yes, it does look as if there’s an Obamacare shock coming: the shock of learning that a public program designed to help a lot of people can, strange to say, end up helping a lot of people — especially when government officials actually try to make it work"

Franklin Delano Williams's insight:

INSIGHT: It was a (red) star-studded affair, the December 2015 dinner celebrating the 10th birthday of Russian TV network RT. At a luxe Moscow hotel, President Vladimir Putin and a host of Russian luminaries toasted a state-backed news channel that U.S. intelligence calls a Kremlin mouthpiece.

 

And next to Putin at the head table, in the seat of honor, was an American. Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, who would later become Donald Trump's national security adviser, was already advising Trump's presidential campaign when he was paid $45,000 to speak at the gala.

 

"It is not coincidence that Flynn was placed next to President Putin," said Michael McFaul, U.S. ambassador in Moscow from 2012 to 2014 and now an NBC News analyst. "Flynn was considered a close Trump adviser. Why else would they want him there?"

In his first 12 weeks in office, President Obama didn't visit a single golf course. By the end of this year, it's likely that Trump will have golfed more than President Obama has in his entire presidency."

CAP does it again: How many folks w/Pre-Existing Conditions are at risk in YOUR district? | ACA SignUps Blog | 04/10/2017 | FDW's Daily Scoops | Scoop.it
Earlier this year, I crunched a mountain of numbers to try and put together an estimate of just how many people are at risk of losing healthcare coverage completely if & when the Affordable Care Act is "cleanly" repealed--that is, a full and complete repeal of the entire law, without any other significant healthcare law replacing it whatsoever. My rough estimate? Around 24 million people, broken out by Congressional District. Sometime after that, the Congressional Budget Office ran the numbers to see just how many people they expected would lose healthcare coverage if the GOP's American Health Care Act (Trumpcare) "Obamacare replacement plan" were to be signed and put into effect. Their conclusion? ALSO around 24 million people.
Franklin Delano Williams's insight:

INSIGHT: Bob Hertz comment on the ACA Signups Blog: "This blog and its commenters have done about the best job anywhere of pointing out the secret vision of hard-code Republican health reform.
And the vision is this:
Force sick people off the average health plan, and premiums will plunge downward for the persons who are healthy.

One way as described here is to raise premiums on the sick. Another way is to license new health plans that allow for underwriting. The healthy will flock to those plans, and the old nondiscriminatory plans will go broke.

The efforts of the healthy to escape the sick is a constant albeit rather underground feature of American insurance history. It goes back to the commercial insurers undercutting the old Blue Cross plans in the 1950's.

The Democrats have generally stood for spreading the cost of being sick. The Republicans have stood for the right of the healthy to buy cheap insurance. We are heading for more collisions on this issue."

"A Right-Wing Think Tank Is Trying to Bring Down the Indian Child Welfare Act. Why?" | Investigate West | 04/6/2017

"A Right-Wing Think Tank Is Trying to Bring Down the Indian Child Welfare Act. Why?" | Investigate West | 04/6/2017 | FDW's Daily Scoops | Scoop.it
A Right-Wing Think Tank Is Trying to Bring Down the Indian Child Welfare Act: Evangelical and anti-Indian-sovereignty groups, adoption advocates, and conservative organizations like the Cato Institute have united behind the Goldwater Institute in attempts to dismantle aspects of a law intended to protect Native American children. Many tribal members fear that if Goldwater is successful, it could undermine the legal scaffolding of Native American self-determination.
Franklin Delano Williams's insight:

INSIGHT: Salvador Quijada on April 6, 2017 at 8:23 am said:

"The Goldwater Institute has made a career out of showing Arizona humanity how much more intelligent they are than anyone else. If tumescence were intellect, the GI would proudly display theirs for all to see. Having committed genocide against native peoples under the banner of manifest destiny is not enough. White people are a superior race says the GI. We don’t suffer from alcoholism, we don’t physically and sexually abuse adopted children, and if we happen to murder an adopted child, at least we’ve kept government from removing the child by evil welfare agents. Native peoples are evil because they do not believe in ‘private property rights’ which is why they do not deserve to live on sovereign reservation land which should have been privatized like our beloved white founding fathers intended."

Whether dining in Prague or enjoying the beaches of Thailand, Russian hackers sometimes face sudden arrest and are whisked to U.S. courtrooms. Moscow decries what it calls “kidnapping.”
Franklin Delano Williams's insight:

INSIGHT: The arrests caught the Russian hackers totally by surprise. One was at a Finnish border crossing. Another was arriving at an airport in Spain. A third was dining at a restaurant in Prague. Still oth

ers were at luxury resorts in the Maldives and Thailand.

Many have now turned up in U.S. courts. The long arm of U.S. law enforcement is spanning the globe like never before to bring criminal hackers to justice.

And it may not be just about crime. The Justice Department cites fuzzy and overlapping boundaries between criminal hackers and Russian intelligence agencies, the same ones the U.S. accuses of coordinating the hacking and subsequent disclosure of emails from the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign.

INSIGHT: Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign provided an email list with more than 10 million names to the Democratic National Committee in order to help its efforts in the upcoming midterm elections, as well as the next presidential race, according to a Sunday Huffington Post report.

 

The DNC announced on Sunday the contribution, which is reportedly the equivalent of $3.5 million worth of data, according to the Federal Election Commission.

The Huffington Post reports that the 10 million new voter contacts will provide a major boost to DNC outreach.

"This information will help candidates up and down the ballot engage with voters and win seats from the school board to the Senate," Xochitl Hinojosa, communications director for the DNC, told the news site. "We're seeing momentum and energy across the country, and this investment will help us harness the energy and turn it into votes."

 

Clinton promised on the campaign trail to help rebuild Democratic Party infrastructure if elected, which largely fell to the wayside during the Obama administration.

"The Death Spiral is Dead; Long Live the Death Spiral!" | ACA SignUps Blog | 04/03/2017

"The Death Spiral is Dead; Long Live the Death Spiral!" | ACA SignUps Blog | 04/03/2017 | FDW's Daily Scoops | Scoop.it
I see that I've been thrown into the crossfire of a wonk debate between John Cochrane (who I've never actually heard of before today) and Brad DeLong/Paul Krugman (both of whom I very much have heard of!) regarding the question of whether the individual healthcare market is or isn't in a Death Spiral and/or whether it will/won't enter one next year. Back in January, the Congressional Budget Office concluded that, overall, they didn't see any death spiral forming if the ACA is kept mostly intact...but also concluded that growth of the exchange population has likely plateaued; around 13 million appears to be the enrollment ceiling barring any significant changes to the law. Interestingly, however, a couple of weeks ago they concluded that there would also be no death spiral if the GOP's AHCA "replacement" plan were to become law either. Meanwhile, over at the Brookings Institute, Matthew Fiedler ran his own analysis of the exchange risk pool and concluded "No Death Spiral!" there either:
Franklin Delano Williams's insight:

INSIGHT:  The point here is that thanks to APTC/CSR financial assistance absorbing nearly all of the rate increase for 85% of the exchange population, a risk pool "death spiral" is not likely to happen in most areas...for those below the 400% FPL income threshold.

In other words, roughly 9-10 million individual market QHP enrollees are very likely to stay in the market, because no matter how much full price premiums go up, their portion of it should stay roughly the same year to year. That's the good news (well, good as long as you're OK with the federal government picking up the tab for the balance, which, as a single payer advocate, I obviously have no problem with).

The bad news...and this is where the "Death Spiral is Happening!" crowd have a point...is the unsubsidized portion of the individual market.
