C'è sete di tecnologia da parte dei colossi dell'#AI. In un'ottica d'interazione/integrazione con quanto già realizzato da #Alphabet (#DeepMind), holding che controlla Google, il gigante dei #BigData produrrà in casa i chip (perché farlo fare a terzi?🕵️‍♀️).

A federal judge ruled the #AffordableCareAct--also known as #ACA & #Obamacare--unconstitutional because #GOPTaxBill removed the mandate.
I've written about ACA since it was devised in 2009 & signed in 2010. Here is a thread📌on what the law does & how it impacts you:
1/
Many Americans are confused about what the #ACA is--and this includes Trump and his #HHS Sect #AlexAzar. A vast array of complex #healthcare statutes are covered under the #AffordableCareAct (also known as #ACA & #Obamacare). So here's a primer to inform you on all points.
2/
The #AffordableCareAct is the comprehensive health care reform law enacted in March 2010 (sometimes known as #ACA or #Obamacare). The #ACA is NOT insurance. It is a LAW that stipulates, in part, what insurance companies provide in their #healthcare plans.

Lies.
The column--WHICH TRUMP DID NOT WRITE--included many lies.
Trump has done everything possible--with the help of @SpeakerRyan and @senatemajldr McConnell--to eviscerate #ACA and steal affordable #healthcare from millions of Americans, including sick children.
Trump ran on overturning #Obamacare--which millions of his supporters did not realize was #ACA that allowed them to get affordable #healthcare through their insurance provider and protected them and their kids who had #PreExistingConditions.
Trump tried to repeal #ACA but failed.
So he stopped making payments to statewide subsidy programs, cutting off #healthcare to millions.
He also cut #CHIP, created by #HillaryClinton, which provided millions of kids with health insurance.

1/In a session at #TCT2018 I saw a case of LAD atherectomy in a patient with open RCA/LCX, normal EF, and no valvular disease. Hemodynamic support was used. The stated rationale was that the patient was a complex patient with comorbidities. #CHIP

This really bothered me.
2/To me (& others in the room who spoke up), this use of support spoke to the fact that there has been some misunderstanding of the #CHIP concept in interventional cardiology as originally illustrated in this slide below, which we published in our 2016 @CircAHA manuscript
3/The CHIP concept (link below) is about recognizing what patients we can potentially help through the appropriate use of PCI, and learning/using the techniques and tools to perform these procedures efficaciously and safely.

Feb. 2018, 18 @GOP AG's & 2 GOP Governors Filed a Lawsuit to Repeal the #ACA in the U.S. Northern District of TX

This lawsuit is currently being heard. This is what it means to YOUR healthcare if Kavanaugh is confirmed. #ProtectOurCare #WhatsAtStake (THREAD)1/15
These are the Republican state attorneys general and governors from 20 states that filed the lawsuit in February 2018 in the U.S. Northern District of Texas.

#ProtectOurCare #WhatsAtStake 2/15
In June of 2018, the Trump Administration said it would not defend the #ACA and actually AGREED in part with the plaintiffs, arguing that protections for people with #PreExistingConditions should be overturned.

My life and that of my mixed race lesbian family would be infinitely better if #HillaryClinton were POTUS.
Same for the folks in my 95% black neighborhood and majority POC sanctuary city.
The #GOPTaxScam raised my health insurance premium to $1,978.10 PER MONTH. For an HMO.
Trump has tried wherever possible to decimate all #Obama's progress in domestic and foreign policy.
Trump even had to damage what #HillaryClinton did as SoS and before--like the #IranDeal and #CHIP.
Trump's only legacy is obliterating the work of others.
You can say the percentage of growth is up for this quarter, but it's irrelevant when wages are stagnant and the permanent tax cuts for corporations were not passed on to workers. What was passed on was higher #healthcare premiums and workfare for parents of #disabled kids.

I'm one of a few million Americans awake when we should be sleeping because of the pain of #cancer or some other chronic illness.

Adding to our sleeplessness is knowing #healthcare is under threat. We may not be able to afford it due to the #GOP's actions.

It's terrorizing.
My parents were Civil Rights workers. My father was a Freedom Rider. As a small child I was taught the legacy of #MLK.
I watched people invoking MLK on Monday. Not in defense of #votingrights or in outrage over how the #SCOTUS ruled on two pivotal cases on gerrymandering.
2/
MLK wasn't being invoked for #votingrights but for Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who lies to America every day about policies that could very well kill me & others.

Policies that are hurting millions.

Policies that have kept me a citizen without equal rights in my own country.

I have been battling a new health crisis since my surgery was postponed June 15.

There is no way to adequately articulate--even as a writer--the breadth of hardship inflicted on sick Americans by the Trump presidency & Trump-led #GOP, like lame-duck @SpeakerRyan.
#healthcare
1/
The @CDCgov cites 133M as the number of chronically-ill Americans who have #cancer, like I do, or another illness that impedes their daily lives.

The majority of that 40% of the US population still have to work despite often disabling illness because we cannot afford not to.
2/
I've been writing about #healthcare in America since I was a cub reporter and put on a small story in the mid-80s that turned into a much bigger story: #AIDS.

When you're in your 20s writing about other 20somethings dying, it changes you.

Then I got #breastcancer at 26.

The hypocrisy of @repgregwalden is staggering. In January, he portrayed himself as a champion of children's care. From his own press release: "We will take care of those children" Yesterday, in a party line vote, he voted to pull $7 billion in funding from #CHIP
#WaldenSoldYouOut
HYPOCRISY.

JANUARY 2018:
“We will take care of those children.”

The Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP)was designed to cover uninsured children in families with incomes that are modest but too high to qualify for Medicaid. #DemHistory #WhyIVoteDemocrat #CHIP #ProtectOurCare
The legislation to create CHIP was sponsored by Senator Ted Kennedy in a partnership with Senator Orrin Hatch, with support coming from First Lady Hillary Clinton during the Clinton administration. #DemHistory #WhyIVoteDemocrat #ForAll #CHIP
In 1997, 10 million children were without health insurance, many of whom were in working families with incomes just above states’ Medicaid eligibility levels. Since the enactment of CHIP, the %of children lacking health insurance has been halved. #DemHistory #WhyIVoteDemocrat

CA Dems declined to endorse @SenFeinstein for senate this past weekend calling for "new blood." Before we dismiss the 84 year old senator who broke gender barriers by becoming the first woman senator from California, let's look at Dianne Feinstein's long history #ImWithDianne
Dianne Feinstein began her career in 1970 when she was elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. She was the 1st female president of the board in 1978 when Mayor Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk were assassinated. Feinstein discovered Milk's & and announced his death
Feinstein succeeded Moscone as Mayor of San Francisco as the 1st woman to hold that position. In 1992 Feinstein & Barbara Boxer were elected to the senate on the same ballot. They were the 1st women CA senators. In 2012 she claimed the record for the most popular votes w/ 7.75m

#TRUMPSHUTDOWN — GOP MYTH #1: This is a "Schumer Shutdown" or "Democrat Shutdown."

FALSE.

Not only did Republican Senators also vote against the CR last night that led to the shutdown, but...

REPUBLICANS CONTROL ALL THREE BRANCHES OF GOVERNMENT.
#TRUMPSHUTDOWN — GOP MYTH #2: Republicans don't really control Senate b/c of the Filibuster, so Dems are to blame.

FALSE.

REPUBLICANS CONTROL WHAT BILLS GO TO FLOOR FOR A VOTE.

The Gang of 6 immigration bill would pass w/ overwhelming bipartisan support, ending the shutdown.
#TRUMPSHUTDOWN — GOP MYTH #3: Democrats are holding the Government hostage.

FALSE.

Democrats have made offer-after-offer to keep the Gov open. Even after Schumer attempted to cut a deal w/ Trump, within two hours...

PAUL RYAN CALLED MCCONNELL AND TOLD HIM TO END NEGOTIATIONS.

All votes are in, and the Senate Continuing Resolution cloture vote has failed. This means that the government is not funded and the #TrumpShutdown is officially in effect.

⬇️THREAD⬇️
Republicans let CHIP expire to pass the #GOPTaxScam. Trump ended DACA. The GOP caused the #TrumpShutdown and refused to put a bill that could pass to a vote. They can only fix it by cleaning up their mess— which has already upended millions of lives.
This isn’t easy, but it is NOT. OVER. Nearly 9 million children, over 800,000 Dreamers, and all of their loved ones are counting on YOU to fight back. #DreamActNow #FundCHIP

Dear Democrats,

I get it. We must try to avoid a government shut down. But hear me out — what happens this week will reflect who we are as a country. So if the Republican budget plan does not include funding for these fundamental issues then you must... #ShutItDown.

Take care of our kids! If the Republican budget fails 9 million children by not funding their healthcare through #CHIP then you must... #ShutItDown.

“Any society which does not care for its children is no nation at all.” -Nelson Mandela
Protect #Dreamers! If the Republican budget doesn’t protect the 800k #DACA recipients then you must...#ShutItDown

I've been part of the Twitter resistance for a year now. I'm going to share some thoughts about why & how I resist.

Some people may not like some things I say here. I’m sorry for that, but they need to be said. 1 #WhyIResist #HowIResist #RebelScum #TheResistance
Some things in the first year were fun: meeting like-minded people, the #scifi characters, learning how to take effective action. Celebrating #victories like beating the #ACA repeal bills.

A lot of it wasn't fun - the threats of nuclear war, the daily stress of bad news. 2
Follow parties were fun, and a good way to promote a message and raise awareness, connect with other resistors and grow our followings. They had themes and served a purpose and there was about about one a month.  3 #PartyWithAPurpose #trending #amplify #effective

Some have expressed outrage this week on how Democrats handled the sexual harassment charges against two of its leaders:
“Dems didn’t call for ousting quick enough!”
“Called for ousting too quickly!”
“It was a GOP hit job!”
“Oust the women, that ousted the man!” (Really?) /1
Some of you have gone as far as saying:
‘We’re going to join a 3rd party!” or “We need a 3rd Party to unite the Nation.” /2
So here is a thread about our Country’s history with 3rd Parties and why forming a 3rd Party to unite us wont help as much as demanding policy that dismantles inequality, institutionalized racism and misogyny /3

Democrats are simply asking for action on the broad set of bipartisan priorities before the Congress:/1 #ABetterDeal #DemPartyPlatform #Democrats #DemForce #DemPriorities
Keep government open: While Republicans control the House and the Senate, and President Trump said earlier this year that ‘our country needs a good shutdown,’ Democrats want to keep government open./2
#ABetterDeal #DemPriorities #Democrats
Raise the caps: Democrats want a strong national defense. We also need an equal increase in our domestic budget, which includes critical national security functions and commitments to hard working families. #ABetterDeal #DemPriorities #DemsWork4USA

Yesterday was Day 60 w/o #CHIP reauthorization. Today, I'll share a very personal story about my own child’s healthcare journey--a journey impossible without insurance, & one which shaped my determination that all kids receive quality healthcare. 1/12

washingtonpost.com/national/healt…
In 2002, our 6-month-old son, Zach, received a terrifying diagnosis. After a few months of unexplained wheezing and difficulty breathing, he was finally diagnosed with a rare cardiothoracic disorder that required open-heart surgery. 2/12
Looking back 15 years, I still tear up recalling the fear my husband and I felt when we learned of the magnitude of Zach’s condition, and as we faced a rough 10 days of uncertainty. 3/12

1/ On mental health and #Resistance (a personal story) THREAD: I was, for a while, trying to do an essay or “tweet... fb.me/GgvZHzUR
2/ For context, I own my own business and that takes easily 60 hours a week of my time. And since that business is a mental health therapy practice, I can’t just emotionally “check out” and go to work anyhow. I have to be fully “present”, to the best of my ability, when I work.
3/ On top of that, my husband has severe chronic pain issues and I have the majority of all the home tasks, in addition to helping him with his ADLs (activities of daily living) to allow him to keep working because we can’t afford for him to quit.
