Obamacare enrollment period extended beyond May as new insurance subsidies kick in

"Americans. Now have even more time to sign up for health plans under the affordable care act. President biden had already added a special enrollment period through mid may and with a lot of people still signing up he just extended so now people will have until the fifteenth remember. The aca or obamacare offers some options and possibly some discounts. If you aren't already getting insurance through an employer typically though you only have limited time at the end of each year to change your health insurance plan unless you have a so-called qualifying life event like a recent job lahser change so this second extension through mid august is a big change

"And gentlemen, we take pride in presenting it. So two justices dissenting or keep in mind Clarence Thomas, Clarence Thomas. Most conservative of all, uh, typically. Yeah, that's I would rate. I mean, Clarence and Alito very close, but Clarence Thomas went with the majority here. So Alito argued the shell of the mandate. This is a quote, quote the shell of the mandate is clearly unconstitutional. And to the extent that the provisions of the ACA that burden the state are inextricably linked to the individual mandate, they too are unenforceable. All right, But you know there's no injury, no direct harm to the parties bringing the lawsuit and that's the issue. We had 18 State attorneys general and two individuals, uh and again, uh, whether you like it or not, Obama care is probably not going anywhere any times. Soon. You know, Biden got some thoughts.

Choosing the right course for you

"At the moment i have a five year old and if he asked him what he wants to do he we'll tell you that he wants to be a fine and a builder and he's having trouble understanding that you could probably do both of those at the same time but when you were five years old what did you want be when you grow up excellent question. I think was a handful of different things that i was interested in very very different to what i've decided on his show. Yeah i think at one point. I wanted to be an architect. I'm very into my crafts and getting a bit creative so that was one of the options. My mom was a hairdresser as well. So that was another thing that i wanted to pursue. Think i still would like to do that on the side verb. If i'm really that's yeah yeah. It's changed a lot over the years. Pabst eating as well which yeah rain. Good to have a chat to you back in the day. That's okay. we can still chat whenever you want. It's interesting isn't it like when when kids a little. They obviously only have a small experience of what jobs are out there. And like you said you know your mom was a hairdresser off and not taking another one. That's what i wanted to be. When i was five and then went away from it and then came back to it so just interesting as we get older and we exposed to more different careers and things like that that we get some different understanding about what we might live today. So let's let's forward from there and go to yet ten so i'd like to find out. What sort of student were you when you were india. Ten and starting to think about vca and what subjects you liked to do. So y- attend. May was i think i was about to move schools so i was very studies focused and think i'm a little bit. I say day with how. I like my notes and that sort of thing is very much focused. Yeah my schooling. Liked it a sport as well. So that's what. I was a good outlet as well to keep me bit balanced. Yeah it is good to have that that balance particularly i reckon going into. Aca find lots of students decide at that point that they're to create spot and it makes me really sad because i think that it's it's such a good outlet win. You actually really hot to go out. And you have iran or place a bowl. Whatever it is that you do. Did you find as you were going through. Definitely something that practical israel. I think we've oh sort of come to realize that especially with lockdown recently. How important it is to get outside and get some sunshine and well to break up the day. Yeah absolutely so. What subjects did you end up choosing. Vca yes say nba say. I did maths methods. I did. I thought i was going to be doing special because i did love maths but didn't end up doing that. I did chemistry biology english and french. Actually okay great. Yeah and french's that's an iceland to have in there is all. I actually did quite similar subjects that deep german instead. And i find that people often he the combination and think. It's a bit weird. But i really loved having like that. Language was just different to the math and sciences and Did you have that with french. Slow i think science. I think after doing it for the four years. It was sort of like. Why wouldn't i continue on. And i think it really progresses in basie a and that's when it can really be used become useful when you decide to travel later on yet awesome. Sorry at that point in time when you were choosing your subjects. Did you notice or like way you are now. Did you have an idea of what you would like to do when you school. So just a heads up as you would have head from kinsey tribe side to do medicine. I think i had thought about it at that point so it was in the back of my mind but i don't think i was one hundred percent that that was what i wanted to write. I think I knew that. I loved maths. I love science so that was mainly my goal is at that point just to continue on with that and sort of kepa arpan to decide a bit later on yet. And that's that makes sense as well like you say your if that's what your strengths lie. Sorta the advice that i try and give students. If you follow your strengths and interests you'll end up being able to do courses that you want to if you not into maths and things like that thing there's no point following them too much because the courses that you wanna do require it and vice versa or if you do really like it then you should do it because you'll end up using it later on. Sorry so we face the you're doing those subjects. How one's vca did you. Did you go through it really easily. Did you have some ups and downs. What were the those two years. However they view i think yes so basically for me was a little bit challenging actually mainly at the beginning i had just moved schools. That the static year eleven. Sorry i grew up in Ever of school and it was very much focused on sporting whereas when i moved to the suburbs it was more academics. I think goes a big wakeup coal. To say i guess the competition as a whole and with basie a for instance. I had to repeat my math methods. They hit advised me like had a discussion with me that i think that was the best sort of route for me to go down and i think hearing. It's you feel like that's horrible. What do you mean. I have to repeat it like thinking that i was completely fine before that with mass and something that i had always been i guess gifted or was my strength so i think that was a really good learning experience to say that while it was hot to hear. It was the best thing that i had done. Oh that i could be in terms of preppy maitha really optimizing my busy in the following year and year twelve. It is really good as well at the school recognized that and and gave you. That feedback allows you to do that. Really early on said he just moved to the school so for them to make that call really early to make sure that you were really well prepared but as you say it's not it's not easy to hear that kind of thing and i imagined as a student at the time that was quite difficult also really glad you mentioned it because i know that i say lots of students asking about what sort of what sort of percentage they need on saxon things throughout the year and what i heart. People will understand by the example that you've given is that different. Schools have different standards of assessment within the school. And that's why say works the way. It does with the focused more on the exams because they're external and in this the sort of scaling of the subjects or the the study scores within the schools to make things more. Even so yeah. It's good that you highlighted that that can be different at different schools. It's very interesting interesting experience. I think yeah and a unique experience lot substitutes wouldn't wouldn't get that they wouldn't understand the difference because you most units are at one school move. Aca so yeah. It's an interesting insight that you had okay. So what tepes would you have the current students. What are some things that you did in year. Twelve or that you wish you had done any twelve to make life easier. Sorry i think something that. I still try to constantly. My studies is goal setting. I think that is sorry. Bake i think especially students that would have just gone through lockdown realizing how day can poss- without getting a whole lot done so just having go set in the morning to take off and yeah just feels good. You can take them off and you can say that you've been productive throughout the day as well while not not being hot on your south on those days where you had a good day and yet just waking up the next day saying how can i be better. Had i do better than the day before and now the thing is i think yes. Sorry to interrupt. But i think that is so important because i think it's really easy to think about all the stuff that you didn't do and you didn't get done whereas economically somewhat. He did get done. And then as you say if you do have an off day what can get done the next day

"Change profitable. Now today's stories are first story. The supreme court may like america itself be more partisan than ever but thursday offered to big cases. That did not break along predictable. Party lines that significant says one expert. The us supreme court remains capable of issuing surprise. Big decisions that don't break. Predictably along partisan lines that may be one important takeaway from thursday's major rulings in which a court dominated by republican nominees held the affordable care act for the third time and liberal justices and in a unanimous decision that philadelphia cannot bar a catholic agency that refused to work with same sex couples from screening foster parents. We hear all the time about divisions and polarization and culture wars and that stuff but this is a nine to zero ruling in a case involving religion and gay rights and that significant says richard garnett director of the program on church state and society at the university of notre dame school of law referring to the foster parent case the ruling on the affordable care act. The healthcare expansion passed during the presidency of barack. Obama may mark the conclusion of a particularly bitter and lengthy political struggle. Republicans have tried and failed to end what they judge and expensive act of government overreach since its inception while it may be possible for opponents to mount yet another legal attack it's margin and protection in the high court is growing with thursday's seventy-two ruling.

Inside Biden’s $1.9 Trillion Stimulus Bill

"Start right there with a pass of that. Covid stimulus bill in the senate on saturday night. I do need to preface this by saying it does have to pass the house again because there were some changes made by the senate so it's not passed into law just yet but we'll go for what this bill will include when it goes through the house and i'm going to try my best to sound like i'm not rattling off just a bunch of dollar amounts but there's a danger. It might sound like that but just bear with me. There might be something in there that would be useful for you. Your family someone. So for helping the unemployed it extends that three hundred dollars a week plus the state unemployment end it makes the first ten thousand two hundred dollars of that non taxable for households making less than a hundred and fifty thousand dollars it also fully funds cobra. Health insurance premiums so that employees who have been laid off can remain on their employer plan for free. There's also going to be another round of checks fourteen hundred dollars for a single taxpayer. Twenty eight hundred couples indy. Get fourteen hundred dollars per dependent now the starts to taper off at seventy five thousand for individuals or one hundred and fifty thousand dollars for couples ended completely gets phased out at eighty thousand dollars for a single tax payer and one hundred and sixty thousand dollars for a couple it gives state and local governments three hundred fifty billion dollars to cover expenses related to covid through twenty twenty four gives schools one hundred and thirty billion for k. Through twelve in forty billion dollars for colleges and that's to help them reopen safely so parents can get back to work for businesses. they'll be twenty five billion dollars going to restaurants and bars. This max out at ten million dollars per company in five million dollars per location additionally there will be seven point two five billion for the paycheck protection program once again forty. Six billion dollars will be going to state local and federal governments to help with testing and contact tracing as well as fourteen billion dollars to help speed up. The vaccine distribution for healthcare there will be financial assistance for aca affordable care act premiums and this is just looking to get the number of people covered by insurance to increase into further incentivize. The south to expand medicaid since they're sort of the holdouts town there. The republicans are blocking that there are also increases in tax breaks to parents who have kids up to three thousand dollars per kid if their age six to seventeen and thirty six hundred dollars per kid if they're under six years old and that spread out over the twelve months according to analysis this plus the fourteen hundred dollar check would cut the number of kids in poverty by more than half. In addition there's changes to the earned income tax credit for this year in extends to people without children. And if you're looking for how much that would be for low to moderate income folks. It'll be somewhere between five hundred and forty three dollars in one thousand five hundred and two dollars. Lastly in the rental and homeowner category it gives thirty billion dollars to help low income and unemployed folks afford rent and utilities and at the state level states and tribes get ten billion dollars per homeowners. So all in all. I think thing that really struck me. Was this tweet that i saw saying that. Isn't it kind of crazy. That biden asked for a one point nine trillion dollar stimulus deal and he got a one point nine trillion dollar stimulus deal like i think that makes biden a pretty good politician. One of the main criticisms of obama was at he started out by compromising with republicans and gave them the compromise offer in the first place instead of starting out high. You can't say that for biden so far in this could be a sign of good things to come but like. I said they're hoping that this gets signed into law by the end of the week after the house passes it sometime this week.

Obamacare would get a big (and quiet) overhaul in the Covid relief bill

"The covid nineteen relief bill. That passed the house on saturday and is now making its way through. The senate includes an expansion of the affordable care act health care legislation. It would be the first significant expansion of the aca also known as obamacare since it passed in two thousand ten white house correspondent marine groppy reports. This would primarily helped people in two ways. One is for the first time people who are making more than four times. The federal poverty level will become eligible for help paying their premiums so for example if a sixty four year old woman is making fifty thousand dollars. Right now she's not eligible for help but under the law for the next two years she could get subsidies that could make her premium dropped from about thirteen thousand dollars a year to just about five thousand dollars a year. Secondly people who make one hundred and fifty percent of the federal poverty line could get additional subsidy help they already qualify now but the extra help would allow them to buy plans without premiums that have much lower deductibles than what they can afford right. Now there's also incentives in the bill to For the twelve states that have not expanded medicaid under the aca to give them extra money in hopes that they will do so to cover people below poverty in their states who don't currently qualify for medicaid. These changes that are in. The bill are expected to stay in the question for whether they become law is whether the entire bill passes. It's not expect to get much. If any republican support. The democrats need to stay united in order to pass the legislation and get it to president biden's desk and these are provisions that he has promised he has supported and once in there and he's expected to sign the bill into law go relief plan which also includes fourteen hundred dollar checks too many americans and more could enter. Its final stretch on wednesday. Senators may begin. Twenty hours of debate on the measure. That's expected to come to a vote later in the week. Majority leader senator chuck schumer said tuesday. That democrats have sorted through disagreements and now have their eyes set on the deals. Final details senate. Democrats are committed to passing the american rescue plan to crush the virus. Recover our economy and deliver help to americans who need it the most. We're on track to send the american rescue plan to the president's desk before the expiration of the enhanced unemployment benefit which occurs on march fourteenth. I expect a hardy debate. I expect some late nights on the floor. The bill could become law as soon as next week

I am speaking with bianca's springer of base. I made them and it's very difficult to summarize the aca and all the influence that she has provided in the leadership and the work that she has given to the sullen community. I will start by saying that. She is a blogger. She is a writer. A pattern designer. She's oetzi shopowner. She works in. Supports the international quilt. Show she hosts so in meet us she is a connoisseur of vintage patterns and she manufacturers pattern weights which holds a special place in my heart because i think that pins are the agents of chaos so i am so happy to welcome you here. The thank you so much for being with us today. Thank you and welcome. Thank you so wedged lisa. I am excited to be here and to be talking with you and i'm excited. I am the introvert. And this is not my wheelhouse. But this i am excited to do and i'm excited to talk to you. I am too. I am looking forward to it. So let's get started talking about your soul in journey. Where does your sewing story begin. Oh goodness i grew up in the bahamas and my mom's sewed all the time and functionally though or if felt that way it was such an every day occurrence should the machine was setup. She would make my school uniform. She would make her clothes for work. She do home to core. Whatever we needed she would just whip it up and made it seem easy. I i remember some watching her. Do the pleats. My sister and i went to private school. And all skirts were pleated and she would just sit at the machine. No pattern no markings. Just follow the. Please fold aplly all the way around and had whip on the beltway spanned and ham up at it just seems so effortless and that's what sewing was for me. It was it looked effortless. It look utilitarian. It was functional. But i didn't appreciate it as a creative outlet. It was just something we had to do. It was cheaper for my mom to make our uniform so she did so. I appreciate it to some extent. But i didn't embrace it i did. I would whip up a backpack just for the heck of it. She would make my costumes for the productions. I was in a in drama. And i was in a clown through and she made my clown costumes clown true and sorry. I don't know how gonna be able to get past that. You must tell us. Don't know how you thought you would just gonna slide by the word clown troupe. In that wasn't going to say nothing so pleased small digression to tell us what the clown troupe is okay so i went to private school and that is not helping me learn about clowns. I know i did not realize that. Somehow clowning wasn't essential characteristic. But that's okay. I'll let you continue on with the private school and then through very complicated story is so i. One of my one of my classes was drama and his inner drama class and then one of our teachers who my homeroom teacher started a little getting together to do little skits and we do little gets performed the chapel and the assemblies that our school and then she started to do. She took over the drama production of the school and i got excited in seventh grade. I was in joseph on the mazing technicolor dreamcoat. I was in the how i at. My excitement for drama started there and threw out junior high and high school. She created a group call street lights. It was a drama ministry through and we would put on drama sketches our school and go to churches and travel around the schools in the bahamas and then ultimately part of that drama turned into a clown ministry where we would perform for younger kids in schools at parties and some of those parties actually funded trips to cuba and the uk in wales. Yes so we were doing clowning with lucrative was.

Hr and payroll management services to employers is that you're about five hundred lives in over If i look at the health book of business he served about fourteen million people representing about one hundred and set. I'm sorry seven hundred forty clients. And when i say health i need a whole variety thinks that starts with benefits administration including including cobra saying you know Aca compliance but we also do the rest of the circle so we have helped navigation services consumer accounts and his as benefit navigation services. So we if if it's an hr thing a like pretty much does me all right so the topic. The main topic for today is around savings and we know if you think about savings and spend sort of two sides of the same coin we know that cova nineteen has had a major impact on spending this year so it will start with the spending side of it. I'm curious what you guys are. Seeing at a light in terms of spend changes or trends may be karen. We'll start with you and then carly you can add to that if you want. Oh absolutely so. Let's think about this in two ways. So i would probably everyone on this call. His about is what you hear in the press around the significant impact on the delivery system. And so you heard things There was almost a six hundred billion dollar decrease in q two this year in healthcare spending But what may not be as widely heard his how. That's rebounded really starting in the late spring early summer and so i was just reading a kaiser family foundation report before coming out of this call in although there was about almost a forty percent decrease then in q two over the summer we saw spending rebound to all only about ten percent lower than prior years so we did see a big drop in things like elective surgeries. Those things that could be really delayed without significant long term impact on patients. But what we're starting to be more and more worried about are the things that could have long term impact like preventive care screenings cancer We saw a significant drop in that. Drop his remain and as we all know is you. Don't if don't find those illnesses early treating them that that charter later as well as more costly. And then if we think about the impact on people We see you know over. Forty percent of people telling us that they wouldn't care because they were afraid nearly three fourths of employers telling us that they're worried about an overstressed healthcare system and not being able to find a doctor one And then the impact of that with over fifty percent of people telling us that there's a negative impact on their overall mental wellbeing as a result of everything. That's fine out in the end. So we see an impact on the actual spending as well as people's outlook on future healthcare services.

This is Apples secret weapon to make you care about AR

"With need. Scott stein are guru on virtual and automated reality reality reality to welcome scott a thank you so i'm gonna reality or a are has been something that tech companies trying to make a thing for years and the best example that we still point to which is several years old now is pokemon go which really drew people into this world at least for this kind of gimmicky game. Where are we couple years since then. I know there's some folks are so played a very many as as during the peak was the state of aol. Right now transitional. You know. I feel like what we're looking at We you know we had these the magic leap in all lens that we're talking about how that's all going to be coming soon. And it's not and those expensive multi thousand dollar headsets ended up being slotted into business use. And you never see them in the real world the things you see our vr things. Even those are pretty rare and are kind of like a special treat that people get themselves so the air on phones has just been continuing to evolve and apple has been doing this all along. Google has a our tools That are baked in. And i think what we're seeing now with with a are is a move to more practical things in the in the past. A i got to talk to to apple mike. Rockwall alexandra mcginnis and they're saying that the first goal was just get you to get it to exist in the world in two thousand seventeen so that was your whole like pokemon dinosaurs things that you know. Oh this magically appears it's cool by their latest focused similar. Google is to do something productive and whether that's helpful information or creative stuff. It's like two different pads on the lighter side. Apples made a big deal of lighter sensors on the iphone twelve pro on the ipad pro. Those are opening up into basically creative. Augmented reality yeah. Let's let's slow down for a second there. Let's talk about light art because light are really is the eastern referred to as one of the secret weapons. That apple has a to make a are thing but just for listeners. Who don't know what lighter is. Could you sort break it down for us. Yeah absolutely. I mean stuff like this has been around for a bunch of years of being following tack Google tango. If you're if you're a technical you follow this stuff Years ago had same idea where you would scan the world. It's shooting out. Little infrared dot dot array like like like the face. I d camera or the microsoft connect with that technology way. Back on the connect was shrunken down in one of the makers that was incorporated babble was a bob apple So what it's doing sending out this like these little things. Is there a light pink measuring the space and you get like a dot matrix. A measurement of the space really fast and that meshes meshes is the term for creates a a basic map that space and instead of just saying oh. I recognize a floor. It's like throwing a blanket on the world where it's like. Oh i see where the chair comes up. I see where the walls are. I see where everything you know. And then that combines with things like computer vision which is like recognizing stuff like people you know where the camera like. Google does a stewart's like that's a person that's dog that's so it's a combination of those two things. That's what light are is. Helping do is mapping about five meters away from you see. I've seen this impractical cases where the aca Use your phone to scan living room in the flyer. Central recognizes though. This is a couch. This is the floor is your tv and it'll not consistently put your whatever i hear. You can't pronounce names anyways. The whatever the cabinets and intellectually know that the cabinet will will slot in there in between your tv. Your couch how he said lighters been around for a while. It's just coming into these phones or death on twelve lineup. now we've had a offer while. I'm just curious. How like what does light are do. Now that like these phones couldn't do before. Yes so that's where like when i was mentioning the super weapon in the story. It's kind of double. It's double edged. Meeting one is that it's lighter. But i think apple's real secret weapon is scale so when i talked to developers it's like you go. Oh there's already bad here what's the deal. Well it's kinda like when you see a technology and you go will. It didn't feel like a got there until it got there. Like i feel like what apple is doing is the same idea but refined and pushed into a lot more devices so the iphone twelve pro and the ipad pro but much bigger footprint than google tango was on just two very fringy phones and but but what google in the other thing that track. Here you're right like what really does for a are is. It makes things speedier and better like it gets a ping on stuff faster but it's simultaneously happening with computer vision getting better at doing the same thing without that so google has been doing this with just cameras. Were vr headsets. Do this with four cameras and like they can approximate a lot of that really fast. So it's a dance between that and the more advanced sensors. That's get under the hood. But like i think just means it's faster and better recognizing the world but the second part that i think is interesting is this whole like three d. scanning movement that has been around for a while but is about creating three d objects that you can then share with other people that's getting more of a groundswell in is becoming less fringy and nerdy with every passing year. Interestingly enough to the we're talking about this on phones there's constant rumors. That apple is going to release a headset. At some point of. Do you think the future of a our lies it glasses or in our phones. I think it'll be both. And i think what what you know. Talking with adobe briefly about like their head of a are about what they're doing air creative tools a very interesting observation. He made where they haven't thinking for a while is that it's very hard to enter the ar vr space Until it works with the stuff you already got all your apps like an oculus. Quest is a game console. it doesn't interact with like your phone apps. And so you wanna open like zumra wanted open document. It's a pain. You have to huggins so google apple. Google did this with daydream. Kind of but google and apple needs to approach having work with the phones and qualcomm is already laid this groundwork out. The qualcomm makes the chips in like all the air vera had set right now apple could be the other big competitor in that space. But what they've been talking about is plugging phones in headsets with usb c or wirelessly there already a few emerging anything that's wet provides the power but also like you say the app compatibility so i guess like we the reason i say yes and is like so your app on your phone could do a lot of it and then you plug in your headset like headphones for your eyes. And you're doing the rest of it. I think that extends it and then you think about apple that makes a lot of sense because like the apple watch it becomes another peripheral that makes sense in the sense. Like you're relying iphone is really the brains of the muscle powering experiences but ultimately you view it on your headset or your watch or whatever that doesn't require heavy lifting isn't required you don't necessarily wanna processor heating up right by your exactly and that gets you to things like five g because like talking to developers about five john headsets. It's very slow. Get for that exact reason like qualcomm has has the roadmap for five g. Headsets but it adds a lot of battery drain. You got to build more of a thing on your head No one's really done it yet. But like you're five g phone powers that gets to all the five g. Ar in the cloud stuff. That like microsoft. Google apple. like everyone's going for that. So i think it makes a lotta sense that that would be the path and then like apples processors. Like we're seeing the mac book and the am one like they just keep getting more crazy powerful and you kind of say four. What but like a are is a very intense said a processes and so. That's the stuff that those those processors could drive a lot of that. And then you again. You're not sticking it on your head. Otherwise i don't know will make something. That's like sleek on your face. It'd be hard if you had to put all the stuff in there you talk about a are as a creative tool elaborate on this idea of what. What exactly can visiting with a are so like when i downloaded the first set of like light are unable apps. It really surprised me going back to the ipad pro in the spring. Like the first bunch of a our apps again. We're like pokemon go dinosaur you know dinosaur play game. A lot of these are three d scanners and they are. They're pretty alienating at first. 'cause you're like you bring it up and suddenly you wave it around and you're creating this measure of your room and then you get this like crazy kind of dollhouse three d. model. And if you've never done it before you might wonder where to start how you create this. Some of them look kind of broken. In an interesting way spoke to like one of the bigger repositories of three d objects stock like it. Sketch fab saying it takes them finessing to get there so like these things and that's the stuff that's happening now with lighter. It's not there are some like. Oh the games run better. You can have like a remote control car now your table and like the table blocks it right and it can like hit a wall or like a it could hit like a box like recognizes all the things in your world which is like air. Headsets are going to start doing. But i think it's the creative part. That's interesting whether it's like really scanning in creating tools. And then both adobe and apple have a our creative toolkits with reality composer ero where. They're trying to get people to do this too. So that's what i mean by that. But it's so interesting to me when i look at the iphone. How little of that is at the forefront of what you see on a daily basis like you would never be aware of it and that's the hard part to get on board like apples. Camera doesn't have three d. Scanning it just but it uses light are for focus like in the background so apple definitely hasn't like made it a main part of ios yet but it's in the background

The hospital located off interstate. Forty west of albuquerque has provided services since the nineteen seventy s to the public of aca and laguna and navajo community in july the tribes were notified of potential changes due to an agreement with the pueblo of laguna a majority shareholder in the hospital. At forty seven percent the navajo community moved its allocation for its own facility in two thousand sixteen in september laguna health corporation entered into an agreement with ihs to open a new facility. In february removing it shares from the facility the agreement started the process of the redesign including notifying employees and establishing a working group via says aca did not expect changes in service until early next year and is calling on the indian health service for immediate resolution option it could allocate funding from the one point three billion dollars from of that and we are five hundred million dollars specifically designated provider relief fund all of these funds intended to address the pandemic.

Should we support the individual mandate?

Medicare for All

06:38 min | 8 months ago

Should we support the individual mandate?

"Today we're going to be talking about the individual mandate, which is a very wonky policy term for the the requirement that you buy health care, which was included in the Affordable Care Act Now to me like the individual mandate is one of the most bizarre and like fascinating Windows onto American politics, which one that will explain like the strangeness and bizarreness of it. But it's also like timely because of two big things like there's basically two major events happening in politics right now, right? There's Supreme Court nomination the Supreme Court could potentially be tipped way to the right and then we have this you may have heard. We have an election coming up like news news alert. There's an election coming up and the many ties into both of these things. Cuz a lot of people are wondering will this new conservative Court overturn the Affordable Care Act and it turns out the individual mandate is like at the center of that legal wage. And then there's also the issue of what happens if Democrats retake Congress and the presidency, what are they going to do? Because essentially the Mandate was eliminated off or they pulled the teeth out of it a couple of years ago when they're still Republican Congress and you know are Democrats going to reinstate it. What's going to happen either a good or a bad thing. Let's get into it. That's what I introduce Our Guest sure. So we're welcoming to the podcast today. You can camp our old friend Egan who is the health care policy Advocate at public citizen. Happy Halloween again. Hey, thanks so much for having you guys. Can we get you a better like sexier tighter than helpful? Yeah, maybe Health Care policy Champion something like an upgrade. We're going to work on that. Yeah, exactly. So my first question on this episode about the individual mandate is what the hell is a name. No, mandate and specifically how is it different from a text? Yeah. So an individual mandate at its most basic is the idea that you have to have health insurance. And if you don't have health insurance, there's some sort of penalty and so it's it's different from attacks in that. It's it's what you would end up paying if you didn't actually get health insurance. So if you have a health insurance, you know your page whatever your health insurance is, but if you don't have any health insurance, then it's whatever the taxes which is generally going to be less than the cost of your health insurance. But it means you're also not getting anything and you don't actually have health insurance coverage off. Yeah Best of Both Worlds really is being uninsured and then being fine on top of it. So a lot of people who have been, you know, following this at all, the Affordable Care Act may know that at this moment back in general the Republican party is opposed to the individual mandate considers it this tax this requirement to buy insurance is like an infringement on our personal Liberties and in general the Democratic party has wage. In favor of it saying it's you know, what makes the Affordable Care Act work. It's personal responsibility out of data, but it was not always so is the can you give us a little wage of like where did this idea come from? How long has it been kicking around for? Yeah. So an individual mandate is is sort of a conservative way of getting people health care. I mean as you know, we're on the way better care for all health care. Now, that's a much more sort of progressive guarantees access to health care for folks. Whereas just an individual mandate really the idea. There is that you want people to have health insurance and insurers are scared that if folks wait until they're sick and then just buy coverage. That means that they're only going to get the insurers are only going to make money while people are sick, which means they're actually going to have to pay out more and so they want them to be paying all those premiums ahead of time so that they're making their their their profits as they go we would hate for insurers not to make enough profit off. Yeah. Yeah, I mean that's it's something that appeals has appealed to Republicans and Democrats over the years and the health insurance industry gives pretty pretty heavy handily to them both. And so it's not it's not surprising that both parties at different times would would be in favor of it. Yeah, so we're from Massachusetts Ground Zero for ObamaCare actually, as you may know the first real life iteration of Obamacare was of course the Massachusetts Health reform, which was passed on a sort of a bipartisan basis under a republican Governor Mitt Romney who pioneered the idea under what is sort of a Democratic Leadership. If you're familiar with Massachusetts state politics, you know that it's just Democrat has used lightly hear President Bush, of course also expressed really strong support for the idea of a mandate a coupled with the marketplace. So if you think about the ACA as being the three legs two of those legs and Marketplace for health care, and then the idea of the Mandate are like major conservative ideas right there and then you know Obama, you know running for the Democratic primary to be John Edwards and Hillary Clinton. He probably thought he needed to be at least a little bit to the left of the Republican Governor, you know, Romney's Health Care policy although both Clinton and Edwards. Endorse the individual mandate in the primary. So they're apparently cool with running on the Republican policy. I guess the question is how did the Democratic solution you know, we have two of the three major candidates in the 2008 primary running on a republican Health reform. Like how did that Democratic solution become like a personal responsibility? Yeah. It's a great question and it's one that sort of speaks to some of the challenges that I think we're going to face under a potential Biden Administration the idea that if you ought to have sort of a National Health Care system that medicare-for-all that's much easier for folks to sort of get their heads around but if you have right now our system is sort of based on various fragments. There's your basic Private health care. There's Medicare for seniors. There's Medicaid for low-income folks. And so this it felt it seemed like Democrats were less afraid of sort of tinkering with it. System trying to make some way of expanding coverage. They were more afraid of sort of taking on, you know insurers and hospitals directly. And so they figured the the easiest way out was to sort of take personal responsibility option try to attack on a new private insurance system and hope that it ended up covering people as we saw there were some coverage games but the gaps in the system that made way too many people still falling through

Breaking Down the Quarters and Semis for the KR Contenders Playoffs

"Let's dive into our predictions for I guess we'll do predictions and then matches them predictions and matches will go in order here. So first match. We both got right. Yep Yep whoop do. We knew that team B M was not up to the task against Wgn Phoenix, and that's what happened. W just think took the three one against them I. Actually yet the three one which is actually kind of surprising because. Outside of an absolute banger that will talk about a little bit later this was the only other one that didn't go three Oh. Team. VM being able to squeak out that one map made it interesting for all of seven minutes and then. wgn Phoenix was like Nah. We're We're. Shutting you down. Yep and that one map was Lee. Shang where we saw Sung Chan gets some key hacks onto as tax on the. Road at least twice I think. You kinda tried his best to. Negate as tech but as we talk about here in the next couple of matches. Stack is shown to be really solid like you had like I think one match that we watched last week or two weeks ago where I felt when it was from. But like there was some issues dying on Bussan but beyond that, especially in these playoffs matches really leveled up. So that team tried their best to try to counter him and they did on the first map but beyond that w kind of took off and really the only other thing that I noticed outside of that. They were playing real chaotic, not super super structured. Just looked discombobulated, and then you get over to a new business and protect literally holds onto his grab for like foil. Yes and it's like there was there was a bunch of times where he could have used it. Either defensively to save some of his teammates and extend the team fight or initiate with an potentially win team fight and Nope, he just sat on it and then when he did use it, he threw it to lake. Horizon Lunar Colony I think because it just went nowhere got nothing and then they just got absolutely destroyed. Yup Listen to Wayne Gretzky protect you miss one hundred percent of the grabs you don't take so. You just gotTa. Do It man you just got? To. It's also a Hawker reference or an office reference depending on what what realm of the world you're in. The other thing too is like every minute that you're not using a graph building. You're not building graph and like if you hold a grab for like three minutes, you could've used a grab that it was like okay and then had another grab by basically the same time So. Yeah it's it's tough and like if you don't have the opportunity to use a grab at all because they're diva is constantly all over you and you don't have the counterplay or they're playing way to spread, then you probably should go on something else. That's better. Pick anyways and use the grab throwaway goldfish swimming dvr, go switch Sigmar anything else. There there's been a lot of issues that we're seeing a lot of the losing teams. They're. They're just like kind of shooting themselves in the foot with like playing what they should be. On the other side man wgn. Phoenix Lake after watching this match. I got really high on this tangle. Especially, ABC Z. Bag has been. Okay. But Gables specially was. Studer Pitt where you saw pack jump up, get damage onto. The Echo over the ACA was even. On. Haven, yeah then. He drops down back behind the cover again, and then you saw gable see right behind him come up boost up finish off the damage and then go back and then Win So comes up to resum they both dive a again and kill him as well. They open it up with two free kills and literally just roll beyond that. So I think that like one of the things especially it's been the tank line coordination for this team. In another team, we'll talk about later. Like it really sets these teams up apart like with the DP s with the one diver as well with the tanks in the one dive deep. Yes as well like. If, you have three people hive minded together you you will find success in grin contenders. And then another name on wgn that you're going to hear. US Talk. A lot absolute tyrant about is ace. When ace is on? The Sambre. Do builds EMP's insanely quick. But then on a newbies, they push team B.. M. Back to the spawn. And then they're like, you know what we got like a minute and a half left we're just going to go sit in front of the spun. And s just sits behind him and mainly heck's the supports like one clip supports drops an EMP. Like gets half of the team just absolutely bullying the back line of Team B, m on a newness and. Team B. M. had no response to ACE's play when he was running the sombre. and. It's super unfortunate that like he's only played this one pick at least what I've seen so far Inoke s on the hog. So good is unmatched in cream contenders I think I, think he might. Only, backed by MAG. But we'll see about that. Hit like he just every time like he forces other people to not play against him because he will just out a out mechanics them out strategy them and like just knows how to play better gets incredible. Pickoffs especially on Havana you saw him on the hog and Gable soon, the sigma they full hold team b. m., there as well So, like this tank line. Alternating CPAC and iino cast depending on whether or not. They're gonNA play the Winston saw shrine oranges run the Road Hog quite often because I think this was still on the playoff patch or like the wwl. Finals Patch. It'll. It's as strong three players on that team like they. Really. Really benefited from there, strong line here and gables the again like we talked about his diva being incredible signals also incredible as well during the scrappy last minute fights where there was a chance that team b. m. was going to be able to. Squeak out the first point actually cap it. he just stayed alive sustained had some good old good rocks Just good play and I think got like a couple of kills here there's also. You're going to start seeing a couple of these names come up next week when we talk not only about Plants and stuff like that but also on recommended. Pickups for teams in the off season because. Couple of teams might be going full Korean here and. There's a lot of new blood that's rear and to get some Odell time in. So I'm excited to see that I actually can't wait to talk about that team that I think is going full Korean 'cause. It's GONNA be interesting to try to put together. A bunch of players out of Korean contenders to slot into that team or and see how close we can get to actually hitting the. the mark on how many people get pulled from creon contenders.

The same operational whether it's incidence Mike stuff was also taking down some of the stuff in ways that we've kind of seen them do in the past But yeah, this one did feel a little different and yet it was. Yes. So it turns out Cyber Command were interfering with the trick bought botnets under the auspices of protecting the United States election, right the integrity of the election and confidence in the election because you know US security officials have been quite concerned that an adversary could use the deployment of ransomware on or around the election. Is a bit of a spoiler as a wide sue sort of arrived confidence in the US election I've seen some people pushing back on that on twitter. Some people insecurity saying, well, it's just a theoretical risk but look they have been thinking about this one table-topping this one for quite a long time I can tell you that with certainty I've been on this one for quite a long time. So I'm not surprised to see the move against trick much the same way that they moved against the IRA the Russian IRA that is before the midterms or during the midterms. A couple of years ago back in two thousand eighteen. So I'm not surprised to see them do this. Especially when you consider that trick bought has been linked to your all of shady state-sponsored stuff. Yeah. But I think it does make sense and when we talked last week, you know we speak that a bit about the healthcare impact was the trick bottle being involved in dropping the ransomware on the big hospital chain. We were talking about but I was focusing on the elections in a it's a thing that the Americans are particularly concerned about because it is a realistic thing that can happen but also it's A little bit more mandate to you know, go after and deal with things that are election-related and some of the tops with trick bought selling access rather actors on North Korea's one example incited. Does kind of tend to nations day territory. Both of those things are a little bit more in McMahon's wheelhouse than just like straight up criminal stuff and we've seen some people kind of suggesting that even if the technical risk to elections perhaps as pot credible who knows Hang on hang onto picked off. The trick on state and county systems right that could be involved in the election process some house I you know it does it does actually connect up pretty well I. Think and I had brief chat with Bobby Chesney about this he wrote a piece on it. For Law Fair and he says, yeah, if this is squarely aimed at ta protecting the election, then this type of activity would fall squarely within. The parameters of Cyber Command statutory authorities, right. So it which actually makes it less interesting because if they have done this because of the attacks against hospitals that would be crossing a big line but doing it because of the election actually less interesting. Yeah. It's funny. Funny because. It is a really interesting example of them acting against the network like this where election interfering is probably only one thing that trick part could be used where we've seen it being used for. But. Yeah. You're right. It would have been and we don't we taking action against the theoretical attack instead of the actual one which used down hundreds of hospitals. Just seems to be crazy. A place in the side effect right? If I do disrupt right but on that's it's also not particularly here to what extent this really has caused in payment. The operation of trick bought in the short term perhaps some in the long term doesn't really seem that way. You know we've made him a difference. We don't really know but anything that goes after those actors makes their lives more difficult is a good scientific even it wasn't the primary reason and we've also seen you know one kind of pot in public here and may well have been other actions going on and you know we may see ongoing. Activity against trick bottle you hang on hang on that's the part that's the part that comes next but let's just stay with the cyber command bit for now this could be signaling right? They are talking about this. The Washington Post comes out with four sources on this. They clearly talking about it to certain meteorite. Let's they're talking about it for a reason. Sorry. When people say this could be signaling I tend to think the fact that commanders even discussing it. Supports that theory. Yeah. I think that's a pretty straight line to draw. Obviously, Siva combines don a bunch of other things in the last year or two, and we haven't necessarily seen them discussed the same way as this during the previous mid Tim elections. You know he did see them saying you know we did the was some signaling. Russian ACA saying, Hey, we are up in your stuff we are watching you just. You know kind head things off. So the fact that we had some signaling then I think this has signaling now totally make sense it does. Now, where it gets interesting. Naira. As I said this isn't about the hospitals it's about a theoretical. That could could fall on election related systems right in a few weeks from now. But this begs the question couldn't you make the same argument for all botnets couldn't make the same argument for. In that case in that could be theoretically leveraged a state to undermine the election right and if that's the case why not attack them to? Know that there's any good reason not here I. Think it's very yeah absolutely you we've seen plenty of evidence of other Boston. It's being used to drop initial access as cover being used as unwittingly You know by other intelligence agencies to as vectors into places like there's absolutely a line to be drawn from all of the other big operation is such a natural good place to starve deniable they provide access the indeed they less well protected them. The networks are trying to break into our operation themselves. There's no reason not to go after the other ones under the same kind of logic to me. Well, that's the thing. Isn't it? Doesn't even though we're saying it hasn't crossed a line it kind of has. Saying, is that this? Is a national security risk that justifies the involvement of military organization. It's almost like this complicated. It's almost

A conversation on why you should vote

"Welcome back to another episode of that money though friends we have just a few weeks left before the general election it's happening November third. The day is finally here and we WANNA. Talk about the election this episode because many states are going to be having their deadlines for which which you can register usually happening in October depending on your states look that up and we thought it'd be important to visit with all of you why it's so important to vote. We actually asked them of our listeners what are the three reasons that you're voting and? They said in. His off. Yes. So from the Angelo from the Geek Life, we all knew America had major issues but these four issues have shown us how bad things could really be. He's four years. Yeah. A number to worry about a month away from being still being society e and number three I'm O'Brien in. America. And I grew up in fear and don't want my kids to do. So those reasons we love him. Thank you. and. Then we had the folks from lat. Next point of view podcast. They said that healthcare is the number one issue because less people in the US have access to healthcare, which is a big deal when you're experiencing global pandemic number two, the economy, and then number three `immigration is that these are the three reasons for black next point of view. All right. So we got Joe, Sparkman, who said number one to dump trump Helje number to fight racism and number three fight sexism Mcginn. grazes. And then we had one more and lease said healthcare and immigration for sure. So I mean, there's so many reasons to vote for this election. We have a huge opportunity coming up to course correct the past four years but rather than focusing on us whoever is trump and who by the way we've decided on a shelley and mutually decided actually decided but I agree we're gonNA retire putting trump in the trash can there's just too many trump's there. So we don't have to do that here. There's Lore we're not doing it. WOULDA yeah. He's already there. So if you're. Even, you're no longer allowed to put trump in there because he's there's too many of them in there any who so we're going to focus not on that but instead like what are we voting for? It's not just against trump, but there's plenty of things to vote for. So entertain that why are you gonNa vote this November So. Many reasons and I mean ultimately what I want most is for everyone to live there moth antic fulfilling and healthy lives and I think in order for us to be able to do that, we need to have living wages we need to be able to live where we want without fear. We need to have equal access to education and opportunities, and we need to have access to safe in green communities and environments. Amen, I mean all that can go deeper into a few things and I know Brenda you'll share some with us, but I think I vote because environmental justice and Climate Change I. Think are one of the most urgent issues of our generation and trump has shown us that they do not care about the trump administration says that it did not care about that they recently rolled. Back Environmental Procedural protections under the Environmental Policy Act. So basically, you can build your highways, your pipelines and power plants without consideration of a lot of the harmful effects that they can cause on our communities and environmentally, and also our communities, and you know it's not a surprise that most of the communities that are affected by these types of this construction are Brown and black communities. That's so true. So and then along with that I'm also voting because I care about black lives and I care about criminal justice reform, and again, the trump administration has shown this time and time again that they're willing to put the economy before human lives are willing to protect professor percents. Supremacy and that's Discussed the Americans and we've seen that in how we handled pandemic that he literally cared more about you know the economy than human lives especially. Brown. Black lives we've seen how eases uses platform twitter and other social media insight, right wing violence, and that's been really scary for for me to release it lane actual literal. You know the young man is a shit that shot people and what we've known for a long time is that we really need to re imagine how our criminal justice system works and we know that the trump administration has does not is not putting that as a priority and I know that a lot of people will say. For Sure Joe Biden did help author the crime bill and Nineteen ninety-four. But I believe I believe in the power of change and I believe from what I've seen with from Biden including Kamala that they're willing to course correct and they definitely care more about reimagining and change criminal justice system than than trump does that's one hundred percent true. Those are excellent reasons. One hundred percent concur with that. How about you? Brenda, what are the? What are a few reasons I know there are so many reasons but what if you want to call out for listeners? So many definitely underscore everything that you said, but I think it's good for everyone to remember that the president can do so much including appointing, supreme, court justices, and other federal federal federal judges. So a good reason to vote is the courts you maybe don't like Biden. Harris don't even think about them just think about what's at stake. So the president of the United States gets to appoint judges, and if we remember there's been lots of Supreme Court battles from Dhaka from ACA to reproductive and lgbtq rights in this court the Supreme Court is all over the place that he they're mostly conservative. got to a point to super right wing horrible people including Justice Cavanaugh a rapist, and also eight RPG is eighty seven years old and she's battled cancer multiple times. So it's very likely that whoever wins in November they're to be able to appoint another Supreme Court justice and what's at stake we Really can't afford that.

That's why we need to do a carbon tax dividend. But I would propose we do it in a way that is rebate at out to the American people in a progressive fashion. So the most Americans are.

"Not observing it. And so that's the current status. And and so we're exempt from that requirement. But Secondly, we're exempt from all the other mandate of the ACA which allows you, and I and all the other members to engage to participate to lend our voice an opinion as to the way in which we shape our sharing program. So every year, we're submitting different aspects of the sharing program to members for their vote for their participation, and so it's member engaged member driven member decided, and that's really the dynamic that makes it person to person member to member participation and is that something from the beginning. When you founded it was that that just a rooted passion of yours to see that happen to see it. Multiply to see that be a standalone piece that anyone could choose. I was just convicted the only way in which we could proceed was to be in connection in community in harmony with each other not only meeting each other's medical expenses, but really being like-minded, and that's proven to be the case that as we attract health conscious and health aware individuals who join in with the mentality that their dollars that were here on earth. To another person whenever they're in need those dual emphasis, I has really proven the foundation and the basis for our continued success amazing, and they can choose their own doctors their own providers is that right? That's really essential to what I believe is our is our freedom of choice in terms of caring for our health. So we leave it up to the individual member to choose their own doctor their own hospital. Obviously we stand with them. Support them help explain the.

"Healthcare dot com is now get this rescue team healthcare is getting fixed. It was in the news all the time. And that year folks were pleasantly surprised with where the numbers ended up last year. They were pleasantly surprised because total sign up through healthcare dot gov. And then the state marketplace's ended up around eleven point eight million. It seems fairly likely as we sit here on Wednesday afternoon that the total number is going to come hundreds of thousands short this year. Let's move onto another topic. That's sort of related the idea of Medicare for all with lots of Democrats say. Saying look if we had a universal government health care system. We would not need to worry about the vagaries of this this politically charged program that has been carved out for the individual marketplace. Adam you wrote a great story this week on Medicare for all and the split within some Democrats and some interest groups over what to do next with Democrats taking over the house next year. What did you learn from that reporting? Sure what I think it was. I think it's obvious that there is going to be a lot of institutional deep-seated resistance to some kind of government run single payer healthcare system. That's that's not a surprise really to anybody. What I learned was I guess two things is one that the people who are against Medicare for all have been thinking about this a long time. So there's a major coalition of industry groups that began talks last August, which was only a couple of weeks after John McCain gave that infamous thumbs down that that basically tanked the less. Good shot at ACA repeal. At just three or four weeks after that, you have these groups coming together and talking about okay, that's done. How do we start talking about how to stop Medicare for all? But the depth of that resistance, and how organized it is already when you know, honestly, there's no shot of any kind of major healthcare overhaul passing for at least another two years that was kind of astonishing to me the second thing, I learned is that the talking points that these industry groups that these anti single payer movements are relying on sound very similar to Republican talking points against the ACA. You know, it's you know, we.

"For insurance on the exchange. He was threatening to do all these things to affectively destroy in tank the markets, and there was a lot of stories being written about a lot of energy. There were grassroots rallies. I was talking to Senator Chris Murphy, he's a big ACA champions from Senator from Connecticut this morning, and I asked him about this question about why aren't Democrats out there? You know, louder and more often kind of trying to raise awareness, and he kind of bristled at the question a little bit. But he did say. There's so much else going on, you know, just over the last couple of weeks that has not has been I guess more important more front of center for senators congressmen that there just hasn't really been the time or the attention at this point on enrollment. I think you're seeing as we get to the end of open enrollment and the numbers are falling further and further behind from from where they were last year. I think you're seeing a surge of activity a lot of lawmakers. Posting on Twitter about enrollment information. He's saw President Obama putting out a video this week. I was getting a lot of attention. So I think there's sort of a late in the game effort to try to make up for the lack of outreach and awareness that we've seen marking the across from the beginning of November. And plus politically last year, it was it was advantage for Democrats to kind of rush and make this a a big issue because they could clearly pin things on the president and on Republicans and say, look, this is the consequence of all these attempts to repeal and replace the ACA now there is kind of not that that threat. And in fact, you know, you're going to have House Democrats in a sense taking a little bit of responsibility for what happens to the markets this coming year, so maybe not as much of a political impetus. It's interesting my pet theory has always been that the first year of open enrollment was saved from being a total disaster because the website was such a disaster that that it got so much attention. It became a leading story healthcare dot gov is broken.

"Is the most likely culprit in your mind else? Well, and there are so many. Changes between last year and this year that it's hard to single out any one particular factor in tribute and amount of the change to that. But there's a lot at play. And I think that we are seeing based on polling that really it. Just a lot of people don't know open Romans going on. They don't know when the new deadline is at they don't know how and when and where to sign up, and there were Kaiser polls indicating that seventy five percent of people don't know when the correct deadlines and a third of people had seen no information about science signing up. So this general lack of awareness lot of contributing factors there one it hasn't been in the news as much it's been drowned out by other things the beginning of open enrollment was right during the midterm election, which was obviously a huge news event that that overshadowed it and now we have this shutdown fight and all kinds of other things. So it's not getting the attention that it did last year last year. All the talk was about healthcare. This time about the attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act. And also, I think we're seeing the compounding effect of the administration cutting its budget to inform people about open enrollment down to just ten percent of what it was originally. Sure. And you have all these kind of kind of I guess more economic and more situational factors is one. There's a stronger economy, and so perhaps more people are employed in therefore fewer people need to go to the exchanges to actually get healthcare. Every year at the same time. There are new options that are kind of spring up, and that people actually have been hearing about from the administration and elsewhere and one of those these kind of short term plans skimpier plants that are outside of the exchanges. These are now alternatives. And these are now alternatives that insurance brokers are selling so when people go in the brokers are saying, well, you have the plant you have the option between, you know, a comprehensive benefit ACA plan and the skimpier plan that hey, maybe it doesn't cover as much but at the same time, you're gonna pay far less. So there's kind of additional alternatives. And this is what the Trump administration has been trying to do is give people various pathways to decide for themselves. They say, you know, what they need what kind of benefits and how much. They wanna pay. This is also the first year where in most of the country, you can go without insurance and not have to pay a penalty because congress repealed the individual mandate last year and a couple of states have their own mandates. But just in those couple states not in the rest of the country. So I want to recap those possible culprits, we talked about the lack of awareness and to some extent organizing energy because all the Democrats and prominent progressive figures who last year.

"The meek ACA system that covers the center center left and left is that the outlets identified politicians who are lying and criticize them as well the politicians who want to compete on being reality based actually having audience with compel the difference between crucifixion rather than just couldn't books. It's dozens of the party mine. So the politicians face completely different media audience incentives on the left then on the right? The outlets face completely different incentives and sources of discipline and the audience is therefore face completely different media ecosystem and on the right there simply reinforcement of telling the party nine and competing on. Who can do it in a more pure an extreme way? Whereas on the last you get this balance between trying to appeal to your voter's preferences. But at the same time being constrained by media ecosystem that will hold you to the facts of what you say. So what what what accounts for this difference? I mean, this is because and I think I mean. Is it? Is it simply what accounts from fr- to the extent that you have a sense what accounts for this difference? So the first thing that we need to learn from this difference is that most of current debates about what's happened to American political media has focused on technology. Whether it's the Facebook house or is or fake news, click bait of a spammers, or whether it's a Russian bonds, or or most of the stories, whichever they were had a strong technological component. Because both of these populations are actually at the Saint knowledgeable frontier. And in fact, if you look at us servings people on the left are younger, generally, and therefore used the technology more whereas people on the right, depend more heavily on traditional media.
