.@VP Pence has also promised the Trump Admin & the GOP will try to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Remember: that would lead to millions losing their health coverage & would ultimately drive up costs for everyone who is able to hang on to their insurance. goo.gl/HFxLh8
I live in rural PA, where progressives can be pretty moderate. Last spring, a member of our local progressive group's Facebook page commented, "What's the big deal? If they're able bodied, shouldn't they work?" The comment got "likes," so I asked to speak at the next meeting. 2/
I explained to the group that the goal of #workrequirements was not to get people to work, but to kick ppl off #Medicaid. I stressed that the bureaucracy surrounding work requirements targets those who work. After the meeting, so many said, "I hadn't thought of it that way." 3/

So Mr. Trump is visiting the beautiful Dakotas and the ego fluffing rallying continues without pause. Just like yesterday, Trump will continue his rants and attacks on the media and spread lies about Democrats./1 #TrumpEgoRallies#CultureOfCorruption#Cult45
But here's what know he won't do or say: address the real issues facing hard-working North and South Dakota families. He will also fail to talk about the continued #Republican war on health care coverage for 130 million Americans with pre-existing conditions./2 #GOPCorruption
.@CookCtyHealth is the region’s medical safety net, known for treating everyone whether they can pay or not. But how much free health care can it provide? The estimated tab this year: about half a billion dollars. Here’s why. Read/listen @WBEZ (1/16) >> tinyurl.com/ydfzefjd
First, about that growing amount of free care. We’re starting to see the ripple effect of a 2012 Illinois law. It aimed to settle how much free care non-profit hospitals in the state must provide to keep what can be very lucrative property tax breaks. (3/16) @KHNews@hamiltonproj
2. Operation Darkness Falls results in arrest one of the most prolific dark net drug dealers in the world.
Matthew & Holly Roberts used the darknet marketplace to distribute #fentanyl#oxycodone#heroin#meth & other drugs.
The #healthcare industry employs millions of Americans.
In the only vision Bernie Sanders has ever presented, that somehow disappears and is replaced by something completely different....by magic. He has never had a plan for it or "breaking up the banks." nydailynews.com/opinion/transc…
The most workable--and quick--plan we could get (if people vote in November and the Democrats regain the House)--is the #MedicareExtraForAll plan.
-Oregon's Health Evidence Review Commission and Value-based Benefits Subcommittee (HERC and VbBS) are proposing changes to Medicaid
