1. It subsumes two earlier schemes, Rashtriya Swasthya Bima Yojana, and Senior citizen health Insurance Scheme, along with a few others.
Benefit: CLARITY in END-POINT DELIVERY! No more confusion as to whether you're eligible.

The #Midterms2018 have been exciting, but much of what we are seeing following #ElectionDay was expected by many. There were signs that the Left would stick to its old playbook (it has been successful for decades), and steal this election, too.

I hope this provides some comfort.

On May 11, 2017, @POTUS created a commission to investigate voter fraud, illegal voting, etc.

That commission was closed months later, but the intel needed to move forward was gathered.
The special elections, such as the Senate race in Alabama between Moore & Jones, were monitored by federal, state, & local officials to gather real time data on how the steal is carried out.

Some of these state had just carried Trump by +20% points, but suddenly went Democrat...

#Georgia Voter Purge Victim: “This Was a Strategy From Kemp” — my latest for @truthout truthout.org/articles/georg… #BrianKemp #Midterms2018 #StaceyAbrams #ElectionDay #VoterSuppression
Yasmin Bakhtiari was told she'd been purged by #BrianKemp because she hadn't voted in two election cycles. But the National Voter Registration Act is crystal clear: You cannot lose your vote for not voting. truthout.org/articles/georg… #Georgia #ElectionDay #VotingRights

1. #BrianKemp should have resigned as Secretary of State before he purged half a million Georgians, before he told the counties not to even hand out provisional ballots to people he had wrongly purged. salon.com/2018/11/09/vet… #Georgia #ElectionDay #StaceyAbrams #Midterms2018
2. #BrianKemp should have resigned before he started enforcing a system of #ExactMatch and other gimmicks that have basically suppressed the votes by literally the hundreds of thousands. salon.com/2018/11/09/vet… #Georgia #StaceyAbrams #StopTheSteal
To now to just come up with a gimmick like putting one of his flunkies in charge, a political hack in charge to replace him, is hardly blessing the #Georgia election as fair and democratic. salon.com/2018/11/09/vet…

"I'm Yasmin and I was blocked from voting for #StaceyAbrams.”

Yasmin Bakhtiari is just one of thousands of #Georgia voters who were purged by GOP Secretary of State #BrianKemp, without notice. gregpalast.com/92-year-old-ge… #ElectionDay #Midterms2018 #ElectionFraud
#Georgia voter Yasmin Bakhtiari was even blocked from casting a provisional ballot, despite waiting for over two hours in line and asking three times. In the end, she filed a complaint and left. #ElectionDay #Midterms2018 #ElectionFraud
This is why we’re suing #BrianKemp. As Secretary of State, he decided who was allowed to vote and which votes got counted—a clear conflict of interest while running against Abrams.

#MartinLutherKing’s Cousin Blocked by #BrianKemp from Casting a Ballot in #Georgia — Despite Voting in every Election for 50 Years gregpalast.com/martin-luther-… #ElectionDay #Midterms2018 #VoterSuppression
92-year-old Christine Jordan, who was blocked from voting in #Georgia by #BrianKemp, hangs with her granddaughter Jessica. Miss Christine, #MartinLutherKing’s cousin, talked about the family reunions with the Kings at her house. gregpalast.com/martin-luther-…
#Georgia's GOP Secretary of State, #BrianKemp, took away her right to vote exactly 50 years to the day since she cast her first ballot in Atlanta. To get back her vote, she is ready to sue #Kemp in federal court, "If someone will help me walk to the courthouse." Any volunteers?

1/ Gerrymandering has backfired for Republicans in Dallas County.

Republicans had hoped to keep a majority of Texas House seats there when they redrew district boundaries.

Now, they hold onto only two of 14.

2/ In 2010 amid a red wave, Republicans picked up several Dallas County seats just before the next round of redistricting. bit.ly/2RFwqiz

#Midterms2018 #Election2018 #tx2018 #txlege
3/ Democrats allege Republicans packed and cracked Latino voters across the county to diminish their voting strength overall and ensure a GOP majority.

Thread 1. My latest #ElectionSecurity reporting on the presence of a #WiFi signal in the tabulating room in #Dallas TX - the state where @BetoORourke lost his #Senate race to @tedcruz truthout.org/articles/new-e…
2. The investigation is over a backdrop of previous trouble that #Dallas County had with the results in the March #Democratic #Primary where multiple precincts had more #votes than #voters. Never a good thing.
3. On @TheBradBlog I talk about the investigation & play exclusive audio of #LauraPressley, an engineer coordinating #election observers all over #TX who discovered the irregularities, so you hear directly from the person who is reporting the #WiFi signal. bradblog.com/?p=12780

Lots of sniffing & low energy from Trump today suddenly touting bipartisanship w/ NANCY after Republicans lose House in #Midterms2018—which he calls “big incredible day…last night the Republican Party defied history.” Also compares to Obama midterms—which he called “midtown”😂
Incredible. Asked whether he’ll fight if Democrats subpoena his tax returns, Trump says they’re too complex. “People don’t understand taxes.”
Trump went off on Jim @Acosta, calling him “rude” and “enemy of the people.” Jim was asking about Russia probe & before that about the ad demonizing migrants (which Trump said “didn’t use actors”). Now he’s telling reporters “sit down, sit down” like they’re bad kindergarteners.

News conference by @POTUS underway.
“Last night the Republican Party defied history,” begins @POTUS.

1/ #Midterms2018 saw a number of historic firsts:
The first two Native American women elected to Congress
The first openly gay man elected governor in the US
The first two Muslim women elected to Congress

Here are some of the candidates who broke new ground last night:
2/ At 29, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the youngest woman ever elected to Congress. The democratic socialist’s victory proved Dems can run on leftist ideas and win — even against party favorites. bit.ly/2zCz94Q
3/ Democrats Sharice Davids and Deb Haaland will be the first Native American women to serve in Congress.

Davids's campaign appealed to her district's moderate suburban voters. Haaland told Vox that one of her biggest priorities will be working to fight climate change.

1- Sentiment au matin post-#Midterms2018 : Trump a gagné.

Certes, les démocrates ont réalisé des gains en sièges et gagné plusieurs sièges de gouverneurs, mais la défaite au Sénat a un impact important, tout comme l'annihilation des jeunes stars démocrates. Mais surtout...
2- Les républicains récoltent les fruits d'un redécoupage très efficace en 2010 :

En 2018, les démocrates gagnent le vote populaire +9 et récoltent environ +35 sièges.
Alors qu'en 2010, les républicains avaient gagné le vote populaire +7 et avaient récolté +63 sièges (!!)
3- Au-delà des chiffres, on a une validation totale du style Trump : inculture, mensonge, insultes, violence... Tout a été totalement accepté par les électeurs républicains.

Avec un "divided government", on peut s'attendre à voir un dysfonctionnement à pleins tubes avant 2020.

1/ Texas Democrats were hoping for a historic year in 2018. What they got instead was hope for 2020.

2/ One source of Democratic optimism: single-digit victories this year for a handful of Republican incumbents who swept into office by double digits in 2014.

3/ Other bright spots for Democrats came in the U.S. House and the Texas House, where Democrats knocked off powerful Republicans.

Beto O’Rourke didn’t quite topple Ted Cruz, but he carried Democrats to victory in battlegrounds suburbs. trib.it/1Ch

Lauren Underwood, the youngest black woman running for Congress this year, is one of the most exciting Democratic wins of the #Midterms2018: slate.trib.al/dePIeCN
It's a decisive swing in a surprising place: an Illinois district that's white and solidly Republican. "I learned to be a black woman in this community," said Underwood. slate.trib.al/dePIeCN
Between Underwood, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Abby Finkenauer, there are suddenly a few very young, very talented Democratic women in Congress.

Sometimes I hate being right. This morning we said that purged voters’ provisional "placebo” ballots could decide the #Georgia governor's race: gregpalast.com/purged-voters-…

And today we spoke to two such GA voters who's been forced to vote on provisional ballots...

Current Fox News VP of political content, Bill Sammon, wrote a book including how to influence elections. amazon.com/Evangelical-Pr… It was Sammon who constructed Megyn Kelly's questions to Trump (2015 debate) and Sammon who makes every decision about tonight. [Look up his bio]
The masks are off. Hopefully this example tonight with Fox News projecting the House for Democrats, while half the country polls are still open, will finally get people to recognize the political and ideological issues within the corporation that is Fox News. #Midterms2018
For those who might not know; and/or those who might have forgotten.

There is a ton of evidence about the ideology, and interests, at work. None of it is good; and all of it is done with a specific purpose.

Real time #Midterms2018 online influence operations: an Iranian Government network we are tracking is currently amplifying various political left messages, including general critique of the current administration, and also third party critiques about two-party system. 1/
We generally find that PressTV & HispanTV (English & Spanish lang. Iranian state propaganda outlets) have very similar content, that are then propagated by networks. However, it's curious that right now, the two language outlets have significantly different takes. 2/
In addition to focusing on immigration issues in Spanish, that outlet also uses significantly more bombastic language about Trump’s vulnerability. /3

#Midterms2018 : plus de 39 millions d’électeurs ont voté par anticipation. C'est un record historique : en 2014, ce chiffre était de 20,5 millions. v/@ElectProject electproject.org/early_2018
#Midterms2018 : dans tous le pays, les chiffres de la participation le jour du vote semblent aussi largement au-dessus de la normale, et ils dépassent même parfois ceux enregistrés en 2016. Pour rappel, la participation lors des midterms est généralement inférieure de 20 points.
#Midterms2018 : à #Nashville, la participation est déjà supérieure à celle de 2016. La mobilisation dans ce bastion démocrate du très conservateur #Tennessee est essentielle pour que @PhilBredesen conserve une chance d'être élu Sénateur.
