Sadly, #MedicareForAll will not help #healthcare costs until the underlying problem with MEDICARE and the ENTIRE HEALTH SYSTEM is FIXED, a LONG 🧵 1 of 24 #Medtwitter @somedocs @AmerMedicalAssn @WCMSSM @MichStateMedSoc References: bit.ly/3rBcvGP bit.ly/3lE3nxf
2/ b/c @SenateFloor @HouseFloor & @CMSGov are yet again not fixing the true problem & instead are again targeting #Physicians by decreasing payments by another 9.75% on top of the fact that reimbursements to providers has already been decreased by 22% over the past 2 decades
3/ On average only 40% of the what your #insurance , including #Medicare , pays your doctor actually goes to the doctor as #income . The overhead costs to be a doctor takes at least 60% of the payment a doctor gets from Medicare or Insurance equivalent. bit.ly/3ptDX6B

We all ♥️ #Paris where were it took place 1st presentation of incoming French Presidency to @EESC_PRESS! #PFUE2022 @CBeaune underlined this rare & precious opportunity, highlighting France's ambition to mark progress on #EU legislation, #climate #digitalisation #socialpolicy 1/1
The red thread of #PFUE2022 would be "Recovery, Power, Belonging" (“Relance, puissance, appartenance”). France would not impose an agenda, but would serve as an accelerator for the way forward on ideas and dossiers. #EU #Europe 1/2
#Recovery”- in economic terms, after the Covid pandemic; "#Power" - in terms of #security, external relations, #defence, #migratory policy, climate; and "#Belonging" - feeling of being part of the common #European political project. 1/3

Anyone perusing the top articles of major media outlets last weekend would have read several pieces on the extraordinary #shortages being witnessed in the U.S. #economy today, and particularly those in the #labor market.
The tone of many articles was pessimistic, suggesting that the #supply-side #shortages and dislocations may be systemic, or long-term, but we think there’s evidence that the U.S. #economy will display considerably greater dynamism and resilience than the pessimists believe.
First, it’s vital to recognize that this is a #supply constraint problem, not one of #demand. Indeed, strong demand is being driven by a host of powerful influences: 1) household balance sheets never been cleaner and HH #wealth is $25 trillion greater now than pre-Covid level.

What does #Caste hierarchy and historical priviledge look like in the Temple Building Industry?​​​​​​​ A thread:

( In image: A prototype of a temple design made by Sompura Brahmins and executed by Dalit Adivasi stone carvers​​​​​​​)
@GLJhub @ILRF
#Justice4TempleStoneWorkers
SOMPURA Brahmins- main actors of the temple building industry, who work closely with religious organizations such as #BAPS. On one hand, they profit off the blood and sweat of #Dalit and #Adivasi workers who build these temples...
...On the other hand, they consider their touch impure. So, Sompuras touch, bless and do ‘finishing touches’ on the carved stones - made by #Dalit #Adivasi #workers - to make them ‘worthy’ of their temples

Everywhere I look, I see #companies complaining about a lack of #workers.

Their solution: Blame the workers because they don't want to rush back into the #workforce.

Can't say I blame them, since technically, the workforce threw them to the wolves at the start of the pandemic. Image
Didn't whole industries (let go, furlough, lay off, or outright fire) their staff at the start of the pandemic if they couldn't do their work remotely?

Didn't they let them go without any concern with how they were going to pay their bills, maintain their healthcare & the like?
Companies just said: "Bye, Felicia," like it we were breaking up at summer camp, not entering a worldwide pandemic which we were not ready to navigate, lied to by our government, and lacking a dedicated healthcare system, ill-prepared to weather.

📽️@UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to #Food, @MichaelFakhri, delivers a special video message ahead of our #CFS47 side event tomorrow:

💡 Global Response to #COVID19 #Hunger Crisis: Developing Effective Policy Responses through the @UN_CFS [🧵thread]

"COVID19 has not only been a public health crisis, but it has also generated a hunger crisis. The virus is new, but it has been predictably harshest on marginalised people. In fact, the world was falling behind on realising the right to food even before the current pandemic." /2
"Even with new vaccines, it will be some time before the global #health situation stabilises & it will be at least a decade before the world recovers economically. Meanwhile, Member States and international orgs have not yet come together to tackle the looming hunger crisis." /3

I just spit into a tube for my employer. So my keycard would be "unlocked" and I could get into my very own office. Where my property has been for very many months. Now yeah, I guess #COVID19 means this is just what #workers do now. But here are #disability implications:
-- my spit, which has my DNA of course, is now a QR code
-- my employer now has access to my DNA
-- my employer now knows I'm on #opiates
-- my employer now knows I'm on #Lexapro
-- my employer now knows things about me that I don't even know about me b/c I've never given DNA
In return for this enormous amount of data I've just given my employer, what do I get? Access to my property, that is, my #poetry books, my #journals, my mementos from across a decade & etc

@BernieSanders Reality: the “#rich” lost a lot of #wealth and #profit generating capabilities, hence many #workers were #fired. However, some #minority among the rich was better able to adjust and improvise, which enables them to lower #unemployment by expanding their #investments.....
@BernieSanders .....society as a whole was damaged by the pandemic, it is not a zero-sum game as uncle @BernieSanders assumes, and the rich boogeyman does not want nor does he have the time to go out targeting your pockets.
@BernieSanders Furthermore, studies are clear that “protecting” workers is not good for productivity (since productivity enhancing technology puts people out of work), and thus the wages of the workers. Wages are further diminished by the temporary and artificial “stability” provided.

Two facts come to mind when I reflect on #LaborDay2020. 1st, I can't help but think abt the Imperial Foods workplace tragedy that befell friends & neighbors in my @CityofHamlet hometown in 1991. (1/6) #ncpol @RaleighReporter @jimmorrill @NCCapitol @PFFPNC

In Sept 2016, as NC Insurance Commissioner & State Fire Marshal I was the keynote speaker at Hamlet's 25th anniversary memorial service. AUDIO file of my remarks HERE >> drive.google.com/file/d/1ikb5u0…
Pls take a few minutes to listen. (2/6) #ncpol @TravisFain @BarnettNed @saintorange
2nd, also wearing my Insurance Commissioner hat, I reflect upon what #LaborDay is about & all the rights + benefits for most workers that were gained only by the blood, sweat, tears, and even lives of workers past. (3/6)

What does the 2020 Dem Platform say about #COVID19? Time to acquaint ourselves with the #DemPartyPlatform for 2020. A platform is guiding principles of a party/goals, vision, mission, promise. Only one party has a platform for the next four years/this is The Peoples Platform 1/15
The #COVID19 pandemic has hit small businesses especially hard. Democrats support making significant, immediate grants and loans to help small businesses make payroll, pay rent and other expenses, and keep their doors open when possible. 2/15 #DemPartyPlatform
Some estimates indicate as many as 40% of Black-owned small businesses may not survive the #TrumpRecession &small businesses owned by Asian Amer/Pacific Islanders/Latinos are also at risk. Dems will prioritize support for entrepreneurs of color, as well as female businesses. 3/15
