The orthodox, mainstream understanding of federal spending is that the Federal Government has to tax and borrow to raise funds to use as cash to spend. Just like a household has to ‘earn’ what it spends and the rest has to go on a credit card. 1/
#MMT #SinglePayer #SSI
This is just another way of saying “you’re still the one that pays, you’re just putting off that payment, with interest”, most people believe the Federal Government acts in the same way; that is has, and must obey, the same financial rules and restrictions as the rest of us. 2/
This would mean that every Government program has to be paid for by you and me. We have to give up our hard earned dollars to allow the Government to pay for the military, education, healthcare, corporate subsidies, and Donald Trumps endless golf trips. 3/

REX de la cyberattaque #NotPetya par un ancien de Maersk... Impressionnant... Le malware a mis 7 minutes pour contaminer globalement toutes les entités... #SSI
Le CISO de Microsoft a contacté Maersk en leur disant qu'ils ont réussi à casser le chiffrement mis sur les ordinateurs grâce au Cloud... Mais ils ont mis 22000 heures pour une machine... Et chaque machine avait une clé différente... Impossible à appliquer sur 75k devices...
Des impacts monstrueux suite à #NotPetya chez Maersk... 100% des machines connectés sur le réseau ont été contaminés, Active Directory & DHCP contaminés, tous les datacenters (même cloud), les backups en ligne corrompus, etc.

Took me a while, but in response to @AmyPearsonMD tweet of my talk last week @uihealthcare, a thread on ⬆️FiO2 and #SSI.

@scruff888 @DrMikeAziz @MPOGASPIRE @APSForg @woundheal #infectionprevention 1/15
Whether intraoperative high inspired oxygen is beneficial is not a settled question.* This thread explains why I routinely use it unless there is a contraindication.

*The evidence that it is NOT harmful is overwhelming.
Impetus to investigate high-inspired O2 grew out of in vitro, animal, human volunteer, & patient studies (1960s-90s): wound hypoxia associated with⬆️#SSI & peripheral vasoconstriction resulting from SNS activation is common source of wound hypoxia.

So in my city #SSI pays $771 a month.
I was just informed that I don't qualify because although I make below the poverty level in annual income, that income makes me ineligible.

The SSI person was very nice as I coughed through our conversation, but it's over.
How is anyone supposed to live on this amount of money in a big city? It's beyond belief. Who sets these income levels? Where are #disabled people supposed to live? How are they supposed pay for a phone? Even a burner costs $25 a month. What about utilities?
The insanity is, I just qualified for #SNAP because I live below the poverty level, but that "entitlement" as the #SSI person explained, counts against your income limit. The woman was very nice & commiserative, but she closed out my file. My application for #Medicaid is pending.

State officials are concerned that the proposed federal PUBLIC CHARGE rule could increase the uninsured rate, which would have a NEGATIVE financial impact and increase health programs’ administrative burden.

Here's how & why YOU must advocate against it before 12/10! THREAD 1/15
@DHSgov has proposed significant changes to public charge determination policies that would affect the immigration status of certain individuals. The concept of determining an immigrant a public charge has been a provision in US immigration policies since the late 1800s. 2/15
Currently, individuals can be prevented from entering the US or denied lawful permanent residence if they are determined to be a “public charge” based on their enrollment in cash assistance programs, like #TANF, #SSI, or if they need long-term care funded by the government. 3/15
