06/01/2019 - 78 years ago today, the longest-serving #UnitedStates #President, #Franklin D. #Roosevelt (#FDR) addressed the 77th #Congress with his "#Four #Freedoms" speech with the intent to shift #US #foreign #policy from that of #neutrality to #interventionist.
#FDR promoted the idea that the people of the world, in all nations, shared entitlement to four freedoms: that of the freedom of speech and expression, the freedom of worship, the freedom from want and the freedom from fear.
#FDR is arguably one of the most 'successful' #US Presidents. Some would argue that on the basis of his numerous social policies such as 'the New Deal'. Others, however, would argue that his role during the second world war was more prevalent to his success & everlasting legacy.

NEW analysis: Rather than continuing to go without insurance, *4.2 million* uninsured people could get an #ACA bronze plan for FREE

We estimate 27% of uninsured potential Marketplace shoppers are eligible for a bronze plan with $0 premiums in 2019. kff.org/health-reform/…
In #Delaware, #Iowa, #Nebraska, and #Utah, almost 1 in 2 currently uninsured people who could be buying Marketplace coverage will be able to get a $0 bronze plan in 2019.

But, will they even know this is an option?
Bronze plans have high deductibles & many ppl are better off w/ Silver

But the math is simple: $0 bronze >> uninsured

Bronze plans have $0 preventive services, often a few Dr visits pre-deductible, & make it more likely to get non-emergency care even if you can't pay deductible

As we celebrate #VeteransDay this year, on the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI, I am grateful for the moment to reflect on the veterans I have been blessed to interact with.
Yet these feelings of gratitude and honor we experience for those who have served our country should not be restrained to one day a year. Rather, we should use this day as a reminder to respect these brave men and women and their families through our words and actions every day.
To the roughly 150,000 veterans living in #Utah, thank you, and happy Veterans Day. Please do not hesitate to reach out to my office should you ever be in need of assistance.

THREAD: Here’s every race in 2018 #Midterms where you can vote for weed legalization or against some old asshole blocking legalization. And oh yeah, help save democracy.
In #Michigan, Proposal 18-1 would legalize cannabis including flowers, concentrates and edibles. Plus you can grow 12 plants at home! freep.com/story/opinion/…
In #Missouri, three competing legalization measures are on the ballot. Measure 2 is backed by local grassroots activists. The other two are pretty sketchy. My colleagues at @Leafly break it down in detail. leafly.com/news/politics/…

I’ve tweeted about our @GlobalIrish communities in #SanDiego, #Seattle, #BayArea & tweeted throughout the visit to #LosAngeles but there are so many other fantastic organizations & communities in Western US celebrating their Irish heritage & links to Ireland. Here are a few ...
Did you know that #Portland is home to a beautiful cross commemorating the famine? Portland is also home to the wonderful @CorribTheatre, led by the fantastic Gemma Whelan, delivering high quality productions of contemporary Irish productions such as Charlie O'Neill's HURL.
I recently visited Salt Lake City & was delighted to meet the Hibernian Society there. Next year #Utah will celebrate the 150th anniversary of the #GoldenSpike - the completion of the transcontinental railroad - in which the Irish community in the US played such a prominent role.

According to Chuck Todd, host of @MTPDaily, this tweet is a “tell” that Donald Trump is panicked about the effort from 18 Republican Attorneys General to challenge the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in court▶️seeking to end protections for those with pre-existing conditions. #LieGate
⚡️It’s certainly not a good look for Republicans less than 3 weeks from the November Election.

▶️Neither is talking about separating more children from their parents and putting them in cages
▶️Neither is talking about stripping Social Security & Medicare programs
▶️Neither is protecting the murderers of a respected journalist, then using money as the reason and inflating the numbers while you’re doing it

Tonight I visited the final event at Rocky Mountain Raceways. My home track and a thriving facility with a top quality 3/8 mile oval and drag strip. This place is the type where @nascar stars are born. @KurtBusch, @KerryDEarnhardt, and more raced here over the years.
The facility entered into a 5 year lease on the land in 2013, and this year were told they had no option to renew the lease. The land will be used for yet another warehouse. This is a shame and a major loss for our community. So if you are enjoying the #Brickyard400 @IMS
tomorrow or your own local track tonight feel extra lucky. Because I spent 20+ years visiting RMR and had the dream of taking my young 4 year old son for 20 more. Tonight my heart hurts. We built something more than just a race track. I built a relationship with my dad there.

FACT: Suicide is the number one cause of death of all #Utah youth; this is not the case nationally. More alarming, the teen suicide rate in Utah has doubled since 2011. #LGBT #UTpol #LDS #Mormon #BYU
Another Fact: Teen suicide is lower when there is an #LGBTQ supportive environment. #Utah is notorious for its lack of support for and acceptance of the #LGBT community. #LDS #Mormon #UTpol #BYU
Relatedly, studies show that in areas where homosexuality is tolerated, mental health outcomes for #LGBTQ are the same as non-LGBTQ people. Elevated risk of suicide correlates w/ elevated risk of mental illness that is prevalent among LGBTs living in areas hostile to them.

1/ NEW EPISODE: As Trump speeds up #oilandgas drilling on #publiclands, Native American artifacts- scattered all over large swaths of land in Utah - are at risk of being destroyed. ow.ly/B9Zn30kYF1x
2/ It all started last spring with Trump’s executive order pushing for America’s energy dominance: bit.ly/2HrsYn1

@jennoldham & @LeighSPaterson traveled to a remote corner of Utah to find out what this policy actually means on the ground.
@jennoldham @LeighSPaterson 3/ #NativeAmerican artifacts are everywhere in SE #Utah. After a long drive down a dirt road, @jennoldham & @LeighSPaterson stumbled across these ancient carvings and the remains of a wall.
