"Feds make financial pitch for Medicaid expansion" | Georgia Health News | 06/05/15

"Feds make financial pitch for Medicaid expansion" | Georgia Health News | 06/05/15 | FDW's Daily Scoops | Scoop.it

The Obama administration rolled out new statistics this week to buttress the argument that Georgia should expand its Medicaid program.

The report from the White House Council of Economic Advisers said that if Georgia expanded Medicaid, as outlined by the Affordable Care Act:

** An additional 389,000 Georgians would have insurance coverage in 2016.

** 52,000 additional Georgians would report being in good (or better) health and 36,000 fewer individuals would experience symptoms of depression.

** 55,300 fewer people would have trouble paying other bills due to the burden of medical costs.

The report also estimates that by not expanding Medicaid, Georgia will miss out on $2.85 billion in federal funding in 2016.

Franklin Delano Williams's insight:

......EXPAND MEDICARE NOW ACROSS AMERICA!!

"Transracial Lives Matter: Rachel Dolezal and the Privilege of Racial Manipulation" | The Lost Daughters | 06/14/15

"Transracial Lives Matter: Rachel Dolezal and the Privilege of Racial Manipulation" | The Lost Daughters | 06/14/15 | FDW's Daily Scoops | Scoop.it

"For those of you who don’t know, and clearly there are a lot of you, the term “transracial” is used in scholarly research, creative writing and cultural work to denote a particular “state of being” for people adopted across race. It also describes a kind of family unit / type of parenting. In other words, it IS a 'thing'. It is disheartening and disconcerting to see this term used dismissively as if it does not encompass an entire population of Black, Brown, Native and Asian people across the globe. For the past 35ish years, I’ve considered myself to be a transracial adoptee. The “trans” in transracial for me, never meant my race changed. It meant I was a multiracial black girl, adopted into a white family. It meant I was taken without my consent from one home, one place of origin and put inside another family, another culture, another race, one that didn’t belong to me. It meant I had to learn how to navigate my blackness and my black girlness, inside an often times racist, religious, violent and rigid white world. It meant living in a house and community that simultaneously erased me, racialized me and tokenized me. It gave me a language to articulate what was happening to me. But you know what it didn't do? It never actually changed my race. An even with all the ‘privileges’ of whiteness, even with all the education, the middle class living, camping, fishing, hunting — It never made me white"

Franklin Delano Williams's insight:

.....This is a very important perspective and point on this issue! I have a niece that did a 'transracial adoption" of a White baby and wrote a book about the experience.
