📣 HEALTHCARE TWITTER: Does anyone remember a piece from a couple of years ago about the #TexasFoldEm lawsuit in which the reporter actually *asked* a bunch of GOP House/Senate members whether they intended to wipe out the entire ACA when they zeroed out the individual mandate??
If so, please contact me for a piece I'm hoping to publish tomorrow--I need to know the reporter and preferably the link to the story. There might have been more than one published. Thanks!
UPDATE: Twitter comes thru again! Thanks to @amgasteier, I think this piece from @pdmcleod of BuzzFeed is the one I was thinking of: buzzfeednews.com/article/paulmc…
Stay tuned...

Cannon and I strongly disagree about his framing of CA banning #ShortAssPlans, but I agree that asking about actual healthcare POLICY decisions would make a hell of a lot more sense than whether or not Becerra is a doctor or not.

Tom Price is a doctor and he was a disaster.
As for #ShortAssPlans in California, what Cannon is really talking about is availability of affordable individual market plans for those who earn too much to be eligible for #ACA subsidies.
This is a real problem, I agree. It's expected to be addressed in the short term by the #AmRescuePlan, and hopefully on a permanent basis via #HR369.

In California, they *partly* addressed the issue by adding their own ACA subsidies for those earning 400 - 600% FPL...

Once again: If we had flipped 1-2 more Senate seats in November, Sen. Manchin (& Sen. Sinema) wouldn't be causing nearly as many headaches. But...we didn't, so they are.

It sucks, but that's where things stand. And while Sinema *may* be primaryable in 2024, Manchin won't be.
"We just need a True Progressive for WV!"

Yeah, they tried that in 2018. He crushed her by 40 points in the primary. Then they tried again in 2020. She was crushed by *43* points in the *general* by Capito.
(and before anyone claims I'm gleeful about this...I raised over $56,000 for Swearengin in the general last year even though I knew it was likely a lost cause.)

🚨 Here we go again: The decision on the #TexasFoldEm lawsuit deciding the fate of the #ACA *may* (or may not) be on the agenda a week from today.
AS A REMINDER, Congress still has one shot to #MootTheSuit before SCOTUS issues their decision...but at this point it seems like everyone involved is taking it as a given that the law will be upheld after all.

Praying "everyone" is correct. 🙏
Er, make that six days from now, not a week.

NY Gov. Cuomo appears to have fucked up royally.
If your response to this is "what about DeSantis?" you're doing it wrong.

Yes, if DeSantis covered up FL COVID deaths (which there was much speculation about last summer, including by myself), he absolutely should be investigated).

That doesn't change the facts about Cuomo.
If your response is "NY was slammed hard, no one knew how to handle it properly!" I agree entirely. This isn't about blaming Cuomo for the nursing home *deaths*, it's about how they were *reported* (or not).
