Bloomberg Campaign Staffers Speak Out, Alleging Broken Promises
"Mike Bloomberg's presidential campaign was one of the most expensive in history he ended it after a dismal performance on super Tuesday one month ago today the former New York mayor still promised to keep his operation running through the general election and to invest more than a billion dollars to defeat president trump but then hundreds of Bloomberg field organizers were abruptly fired last month three of them are now sharing their stories they talked with NPR's Juana summers when Mike Bloomberg launched his presidential campaign he hired an enormous network of staff across the country showering them with salaries that far exceeded what other candidates for pain he also offered them something else a job through the general election no matter what they offered an incredible benefit package which is unheard of for a field staff offering eight thousand dollars a month for a regional wall dedication to kill our healthcare technology a laptop cell phone that's all just money he joined Bloomberg's campaign in Miami Dade County as a regional organizing director in December he said those guarantees unheard of on campaigns made a job with Bloomberg incredibly attractive part of his job was to interview potential staff and it's part of our hiring guidelines wise to utilize the line back employment it guaranteed greener member location it's not that promise was part of what convinced Matthew jeweler in Denver to quit the I. T. job he'd worked at for ten years I honestly don't know if I would have taken the job if it weren't for that specific guarantee because I knew I wanted to work in the general election Bloomberg dropped out of the way shortly after super Tuesday then there were two rounds of layoffs in the first round hundreds of staffers across the country were let go told that they behave through March thirty first they were encouraged to apply to work for Bloomberg's organization in battleground states then Bloomberg abandoned his plans to form a new independent entity and announced that he but instead give eighteen million dollars to the Democratic National Committee for the party's battleground states program Donna wood in Miami lost her job on March twentieth conference call and it was all right options script from HR and then the call just ended it was selected by you can hang up now in a statement Bloomberg's campaign manager Kevin cheeky told NPR the campaign reached out to every organizing staffer in six battleground states as well as others and ask them to consider working with the GMC she he said hundreds of former Bloomberg campaign staff have been contacted interim hiring pipeline to join the DNC's organizing efforts something he insists would not have happened without the campaign's massive donations to the party but staffers were let go without guarantees I asked him all Jeff wani about conversations he had with potential campaign staff where he promised continuous employment three November Mike borrowed my credibility and abused in that moment we want people like Mike to now and the people in the party who benefit from like philanthropy chin now that it is not OK to just get harder as though you know where mere tool Summerfield organizers for Bloomberg's campaign have filed potential class action lawsuits were these complaints have been detailed in court documents Donna would file the first breach of contract suit it's now grown from one plaintiff to roughly eighty I just know what I was promised and I'm a woman of my word and I would just think that other people would be the same if you repeatedly tell someone something and it sure than that they still have their jobs and ensure them that you'll be transitioning to an end of independent expenditure that that would happen another potential class action lawsuit was filed by former campaign workers in Georgia Utah and Washington while the former workers say Bloomberg's campaign promise them continued employment they acknowledge that they signed at will contracts meaning they could be let go at any time Matthew jeweler and Denver the point isn't the contract that we signed it says out well it could come from the station two thousand former staffers had with hiring people all then you have a guaranteed job November fifteenth on official interview documents that they use internal many staffers including jeweler expressed frustration that Bloomberg funded the most expensive primary campaign in history five hundred million dollars on our on loan in a four month period he keeps falling one percent of that and every single one of his fields far higher salary for the remainder of the year the campaign manager Kevin G.

Why Michigan is the next big Bernie Sanders-Joe Biden battleground
"That is that it's not over yet but it's not looking good for Bernie Sanders and his socialist revolution let's just put it that way it's out he's got it he needs a miracle to come back in and win this thing in the end it or don't have a shot at it he needs to do really well and a lot of these upcoming states he doesn't have my chart margin for error and the reason for that is is that what happened in the a few days after South Carolina was the Democrat establishment coalesced behind Joe Biden really quick and it's pretty clear deals Joe Biden's wouldn't on super Tuesday the DNC machine gave it to on they took it for granted I'm they gave it to him so there's a few things that happen in the lead up to super Tuesday that are really important Terry McAuliffe the former governor of Virginia former DNC chair endorse Joe Biden that means the whole Virginia machine got behind that's why does Clinton though he was outspent by eighteen million dollars by Mike Rosenberg so Clinton's hatchet man Hillary Clinton hatchet man have a cold AF send the message and and then in that in the state of Virginia McCall's machine went to work but I didn't did but barely any campaign events are spent barely any right in Virginia so it's like how the hell did he win that big sorry I didn't mean to say that that that bad everywhere here but how the heck did you win that big of a race on hi I'm fine in in Virginia to the point where Bloomberg didn't even get any delegates after spending eighteen million dollars there Bernie did get a handful of patents out of Virginia but that it wasn't just for Genya Beto Rourke came in from in Texas the genesis machine came in Amy Klobuchar who dropped out at the urging of the party al there's the behind the scenes people the Obamas and so on and so forth I I came in for I'm in Minnesota in Massachusetts Elizabeth Warren the supposedly leftist progressives socialists who really it doesn't actually believe in what she puts forward is more loyal to the party establishment that she is and to the ideas she supposedly espouses and she just dropped out today but she stands in Massachusetts that blocked burning in Massachusetts and in Maine Rodney near nearby neighboring Maine and so on biting winds all these states that he probably should know one and Bloomberg really under performed across Italy he's got already and now warrants out of the race and it's really a two person race and so again Bernie's gonna need a huge night in Michigan he needs to not just win message when Michigan who needs to win decisively he he are coming on Tuesday other states I the upcoming that burning is to do really well in other rust belt states like Maine upper Midwest states like Wisconsin or Pennsylvania Arnaud heiau Bernie Bernie has a swing pass show but it's not looking good form and it's pretty clear they came for Bernie on Tuesday night and they seem to have delivered pretty close to a knock out

"Everybody so Man I wish I could spend four hours telling you all the craziness has happened since we last hung out. But I can't because right now I have to get back down to finish recording. The book short break now just wanted to shoot a quick episode but basically the last episode she has got was from Arizona at Tony and dean the mastermind dot com launch. And I had my brother ripped the my presentation of the end. Everybody got a lot of good feedback me as about that hopefully enjoyed that. But what's crazy? Is that night after we got done with Tony and Dean in Jenin? We JUMP BACK IN. A plane flew home and just in time to pass out three hours a week and it was noah's birthday which was so awesome. Celebrate a birthday playthrough they got some work done and then the next day or that night sorry it was at night then. I jumped in another plane. Flew OUT TO LA FOR TONY. Robins birthday party which was cool. Who Says Sixtieth Birthday Party and it was? I think there was basically eight different concerts. Like with the Ethridge and the dude that one person talent and pit bull and Andy Grammer. Who has seriously like thinking me him? She became best friends. He seems like the kind of guy would hang out with a bunch of other. Anyway it was amazing and then they raise money for. Oh you are and raise over. Eighteen million dollars for operation underground railroad was crazy Perez Hilton said to us which was like come on now Pearson. That was amazing. So anyway it was. The whole event was was awesome but then we flew back the next day and now I'm back here in the studio. Yes she actually fun. Time to work on the traffic secrets book funnel which was a lot of fun but anyway we're why should the yesterday because so many of you guys go out there and you launch a final and it doesn't work it doesn't work the way you expect it and then you get angry upset or you give up your walk away or whatever and I tell you behind the scenes because a lot of people don't know this is happening But I have a. I'm privy to what's happening in everybody's funnel with all the time but Last last year when we did the mastermind dot com launch. It was the biggest launch in internet marketing history. Which is crazy this year. I think two hundred fifty thousand people registered for the for the Webinar last year. This year we had four hundred and sixty thousand people so obviously our hopes are high. It's like this is going to be amazing. But it's also the fear of like how do you? How do you get lightening strike twice at the same time? You know two years in a row after it works so good the year before and so there's a lot of fear anxiety and there are a lot of moving pieces that made this launch different and difficult but launch happened. And I'm not gonNA BOO HOO because like for less than we already over eight figure. So it's it's crazy still charlie. The second biggest launch of all time but sometimes launch happened and chance kind of watch as Dean and his team and working on things and again. We're mostly would go and say oh like he didn't get it. We're happy dean. There's been stressing out like like what was wrong. Why isn't messaging during the Hooks? Where the angles? What are the feedback in obsessing over everything? I could see him in the comment section of the customers reading every single. Calm the the the ones from the live webinars reading while trying to figure out and tweak the message and change the message and tonight he's actually on live again based on all this data feedback on his Intel and going back and doing a whole new presentation with the tweaks and changes and he adjusted his justin emails adjusting the most tweaking changing tweaking. Changing all enroll times says happening real really fast and I think a lot of times the outside we think oh. These people have been doing it for a long time. They know they're doing and they just put it out there and just works but I think we don't understand is that people have been doing this long time. They understand the funnel audibles understand. Like it's not gonNa work the first time it's it's a constant evolution and change and tweaking and changing tweaking and changing and tweaking getting it until it's until it's perfectly. That's what makes them great. It's not that they know how to do it perfectly. It's that they know how quickly and so for you guys you're listening to this I want you to start learning. That skill start becoming okay with stress. Alabama launches dunes goes. I want her driving. Facebook is not converting. Well or whatever. It's like that's the game like the people who are best. The Game Aren't better at it than you. They are better iterating quickly and changing and tweaking looking at feedback from customers and from comments and from things are saying forget. How do I tweak this message? How do I change? It goes rerecord new webinar drainage do emails ads in your change anymore unless ads. That's the difference between being good and being great and so anyway. I just want to share that behind the scenes with you because most has ever see behind the scenes and so this hopefully give you a glimpse of what it looks like. It's funny I was talking to Dean Bantu weeks ago we were flying out somewhere and we're talking about when he wrote the millionaire millionaire says habits book and it took him almost two years before the book started selling two years. Most people would have given up after like a week or two. It's an two years of trying and testing and trying testing and try and he's like literally two years into it he'd record some add ons phone. They had a different message and sue that one hit. They sold a thousand books. That day is like. Oh my gosh. That's the message. People needed like now make sense and then it was like can only donkey Kong and then over the next three years. They sold five hundred thousand copies of the book because because they knew the message. They figured it out by doing the process so anyway. That's how the that's how the masters do with how they experts do you guys. It's not by being better a front despite iterating quickly and becoming okay with that and enjoying the process so I appreciate you guys. You're back in the booth and record the rest of the expert secrets book. Make sure you get the audio books when they are done. Otherwise this work on vein. Thanks guys appreciate you. In fact I ready.

How The Food Industry Manipulates Public Opinion, Science, And Government
"Today. I want to talk about how the food industry many plays public opinion manipulate science. Manipulates the government. So here we go. Let's take on Science I. I mean who isn't confused about what to eat. And that's why I wrote my book action. But what's really going on is a concerted effort by the food industry that manipulates science. The government our government spends about one billion a year on nutrition research. The food industry spends twelve billion. And they find all kinds of concocted studies. That actually manipulate the truth. For example. I think Coca Cola. Spent one hundred twenty million dollars to universities and other groups to actually provide money money for research and guess what they funded three hundred eighty nine articles and one hundred sixty nine journals. Things like exercise. Is the key to weight. Loss at soda doesn't have any role in our way. The Snack Food Manufacturers Association groups that confections group funded studies that show the kids. We Candy Actually Lose More Weight and have less inflammation the kids who don't eat candy. I mean how does that even make sense? And when you look at the data I'm you know studies funded by the food. Industry Are Eight to fifty times more likely to show benefit? I studied for example on artificial sweeteners. Show that by the food industry that ninety nine percent they're safe and effective but about ninety plus percent of the studies but their independence show that they cause weight gain obesity. Damage the microbiome and definitely are not a healthy food and not good for dieting. So we have so much going on all the time in research I there was a there was a big review. For example by a group of scientists have looked at sugar recommendations it was published in the animal internal medicine which is one of the most important journals in medicine and yet it it shed very computing. Seems like there's no evidence for assure guidelines to reduce sugar that actually sugar is an harmful that our concerns are overstated in the data to support any limits on sugar in our diet. Well the study was funded by a group called the International Science Institute which sounds awesome but turns out is funded by none other than Coca Cola and Monsanto and Pepsi and all the big characters in the food industry so we're completely bamboozled by misinformation major journals and it confuses doctors nurses nutritionists computers the public and even in confuses policymakers. How do you make sense of all this? So you really have to follow the money so nutrition. Science corruption is huge. And it doesn't just stop there. He go onto fun all sorts of professional associations for example the American Diabetes Association the American Heart Association the Academy of Nutrition Dietetic which which receives forty percent of its funding from the food industry. They create a partnership with kraft singles. Calling it the smart slice of cheese you know which is crazy because it's not even cheese. Something has to be fifty one percent cheese to call it cheese so I'd say cheese like product or I don't even know what to call it. The government doesn't like to call cheese and that's called a heart healthy. Smart Snack is because they were funded by the food industry They are also corrupting their meetings. Their meetings and they provide all sorts of CO education so they have panels with makers of high fructose Corn Syrup and transfats an all kinds of crazy stuff and it just computers nutritionist. Because it seems like it's good science. They're very very good and they spend millions millions and billions on this so they corrupt all these organizations and and so Dr John Nine Ninety s as a professor at Stanford said. We shouldn't believe any recommendations coming out of professional societies that have conflicts of interest. I mean how does the American Heart Association can have fruit loops and twix cereals? Be Hard healthy when they're so full of sugar because they're low fat they get three hundred thousand dollars for putting that seal of approval so we have to be very cautious consumers. See Not just stop. With professional associations they also create front groups. Front groups are group's that actually seem like they're legitimate groups but actually are funded by the food industry or the Agan History of the oil industry. So you've got things like climate smart. Agriculture sounds wonderful. And I who's against that right but it's funded by the fertilizer companies who want to use more fertilizer and as we've talked about before fertilizer drives huge amounts of damage to the ecosystem uses tons of energy to produce damage our waterways at his huge contributor to climate change so Not so smart. In my opinion I see you've got then you've got the ways in which these companies also create corporate social responsibility and it's another mechanism. They used they. They fund groups that are social groups. It's called corporate social responsibility. And what did they find? They find the N. W. C. P. And they find the Hispanic preparation make money. And what does that do that makes them sort of loyal to them and a little bit and the it co ops them for example and there's a soda tax on the ballot. They actually will oppose a soda tax. Because they're funded by coca-cola or or the food industry or so makers is pretty pretty frightening. they also fun things like the hunger groups which which why they're so against limiting soda for snap or food stamps are we spent seven billion soda for the poor every year about thirty billion servings through our food stamp program how that make any sense. When we're trying to create a healthy population says all these insidious ways they caught these groups. I remember when I was showing fed up in Atlanta. I met with Bernice King. Martin Luther King's daughter and she wanted to the movie and the King Center instead of being nonviolent is also nonviolent yourself through how you take care of your health and she was all excited about it and I got a call later. We couldn't show the film there and I was like why and that was moving about obesity in the food industry said well because Coca Cola Funds King Center. It's pretty frightening And how they co op these groups And we also do all kinds of other nefarious things They besides the front groups besides sole told responsibility besides getting into our public health academies besides corrupting science. They're involved in terrible political efforts that are behind the scenes that manipulate public opinion for example. Now there's a couple of things that happened. One was an effort by the Grocery Manufacturers America which essentially was a representative now-disbanded thankfully that was representing the big food companies and they illegally got them to contribute to a slush fund to fight. Gmo labeling. Which would have cost those companies billions of dollars and fight it in Washington state and they pretended to sort of hide behind this this group. That wasn't actually disclosing the funding Attorney General Washington state figure this out and sued the grocery manufacturers of America for campaign finance violations and led to the biggest settlement. I think it was like fourteen or eighteen million dollars against them Yet the ballot passed to fight. Gmo labeling and they won they spent so much money but they got slapped a few million bucks. I mean they make millions of dollars. They don't really care. But after that a number of these companies actually you're standing up and doing good things and I think I see I see progress. I see change and that makes me happy for example Nestle's known Unilever and Mars Got Out of Jimmy at that point the grocery manufacturer America and they formed a sustainable food policy alliance which was a great idea. And I think it's exciting and we'll see what happens with that. Nomination hopefully work with him on my food fix campaign so so that was terrible and then of course even worse things eighty for example they create a ballot initiative in California which was to prohibit local governments from raisings local taxes unless there was a two thirds majority which would have crippled the governments in the local towns so they couldn't schools are departments police stations etc and They didn't care about that but they cared about was manipulating. The Governor Governor Jerry Brown is probably liberal governor. We had in America to put a preemptive policy that prevented any future taxes on soda. Junk food. Now think about that. I mean they literally strong armed the government by threatening them with a measure that would they spent seven million dollars promoting that would have crippled local governments and basically bribed to force the governor to create this preemptive law which is terrible so all of a sudden affairs ways that the food industries acting and we need to fight

OPINION: Bloomberg's presidential campaign is proof that money can't buy elections
"Michael Bloomberg in Tom's dire are flooding the airwaves with political ads as they seek to move into the top tier of candidates as the twenty twenty democratic primaries are set to begin every beim of reason magazine is here to discuss Eric what Americans tune in to watch the Superbowl next month they will be subjected to a sixty second ad from New York City mayor Mike Bloomberg Bloomberg of course is one of the two democratic billionaires running for president in twenty twenty and he's dropped an estimated ten million dollars to purchase and that sixty second slot during America's biggest sporting event but the two democratic billionaires that's Bloomberg and Tom Steiger are actually proving that money can't buy elections together they've spent well over two hundred million dollars so far and yet neither of them seems to be much closer to the White House hi folks I Merrick band with reason magazine thanks for joining us on this edition of American radio journal no guest for me this week instead we're taking a look at those two candidates Bloomberg inspire and the fact that they've spent as I said well over two hundred million dollars so far campaign ads and certainly many millions more tech com as voting does not even begin for another month in the democratic primary but even though that amount of money might not mean much to them the opportunity costs here are really quite staggering no other candidate in the field through the end of twenty nineteen had spent more than eighteen million dollars on ads that's according to data that political aggregated last week Bloomberg spent that much just in the first week that he was in the race and he's kept up spending right around twenty million dollars per week since he jumped in but despite the huge advertising blitz Bloomberg inspire are almost certainly wasting their money chasing political power well it's foolish to rule out any sort of electoral outcome in this reality where we've got Donald Trump as president right now voters have responded to both democratic billionaires so far with a a resounding mac there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of enthusiasm for either one of them and there seems to be little reason to think that that will change anytime in the next few months no matter how much money the two of them pour into the race there are actually two important lessons here I think first is that Bloomberg inspire seem to be on an inadvertent crusade to actually prove that progressive fears about the influence of money in politics are largely unfounded secondly the two billion or candidates are providing a real world lesson about opportunity costs bite setting fire to their huge campaign war chests I mean they've got the means to change the world they are certainly wealthier than you or I or pretty much anyone out there but getting involved with politics really is not the way to change the world Bloomberg has been spending close to thirty million dollars per week on TV ads and jumping into the race but all that cash hasn't really move the needle he's running a distant fifth in the real clear politics polling average right now with that somewhere around five percent little over five percent that's well behind more thrifty candidates like people to judge and Joe Biden who continue to lead he's unlikely to qualify for the next debate which is scheduled for January fourteenth in Iowa because Democratic National Committee rules require that candidates qualify via polling which Bloomberg has done but also by accumulating at least two hundred and twenty five thousand individual donors which he has not in some ways Bloomberg self financed at heavy campaign may not really care about the debates in fact in some ways you could argue that he might be better off by skipping the debates and saturating the airwaves without having to face any of his challengers in the flesh where he would probably be subjected to criticism over his wealth and his record of supporting stop and frisk policing in New York City along with a bunch of other things now spire has done marginally better at least in terms of qualifying for the debates he's been on the stage for the last three debates but he seems unlikely to make this month's contest in Iowa he's polling below one and a half percent in the real clear polling average and he doesn't have great numbers any of the early primary states not even in his home state of California where you would think voters or at least more familiar with him given how Bloomberg inspired struggled to gain traction it's a bit ironic to hear some of the democratic primary opponents repeatedly bemoaning the influence of money in politics center Elizabeth Warren in south bend mayor Pete Degesch got into a kerfuffle at the last debate over whose campaign was more corrupted by the influence of deep pocketed donors and the consensus view in the democratic primary field is that Congress ought to overturn the Supreme Court's twenty ten citizens United decision the decision that the court in which the court ruled that campaign contribution limits for political action committees place on constitutional limitations on free speech now it's certainly true that money can buy access and influence in the political process there's no doubt about that but when it comes to campaigns money is really only as good as the results that can produce Joe Biden has had well documented fundraising issues but he continues to be the Democrats front runner Bloomberg's spending more each week than British jazz has spent so far in his entire campaign but mayor Pete is the odds on favorite to win the first primary contest in Iowa and Bloomberg is running well back in the field in short the idea that billionaires can buy elections is kind of being the bunker right before our eyes once again and if they can't buy the election couldn't these guys probably do more by not running for office in the first place take stock here for example his entire campaign is built around a single idea he says the climate changes America's biggest challenge but also our greatest opportunity because it means we'll have a chance to create millions of good paying jobs across the country now you don't need to be president to create jobs and you don't have to agree with sire about climate change to see that there are certainly ways

This 8-Year-Old Makes $26M A Year From YouTube - Here's What You Can Learn
"Welcome to another episode of Marketing School. I've Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we are going to talk about how this eight year year old kid makes twenty six million dollars a year from Youtube at what you can learn from it so neil. Have you heard a story. Do you know who this is. I do Ryan's rolled all right. Yeah His name is Ryan Guan and then yeah rides. World is officially his channel. Do you WanNa tell vote about it. Yes so you know. It's not just a kit. His parents are bawling because the parents are keeping the money. Sucks for Ryan when you get older. Hopefully your parents take care of. You seem like nice pair or you. Listen to mark is good. You learn how to get out out of that. That's right although I think it's good that a kid doesn't get twenty six million and the parents can agree and probably saving yet in doing good things on his behalf. Ford released an article breaking down the top Youtube influencers in how much they're making and Ryan was at the top. It used to be Ryan. You know video video recording youtube videos of him looking at toys now. It's much more than that. But in essence is channel appeals to kids and he makes twenty six million dollars. There's a year so good for you Ryan. Yeah just to give a little more context in terms of what you can learn. I think Going into it to rides world is a channel used to be rides toy review. And I. I was watching some of the videos. And there's like a giant Lightning McQueen bar a ball from disease cars and so basically the idea. The deal was actually conceived from Ryan's mother who came up with the idea after watching videos by another youtuber named Evan Tube. HD He basically reviews products too. But you know she decided to basically put a spin on it so oftentimes. What you think about doing something to do is draw some racial somewhere else and then combined into experience that that you have at it becomes something? That's very novel. The the best part about this is like look anyone can make money. My buddies and I were joking around at least my buddies who have kids and we were joking around like mad. Our children just causes money. It's time to make some money from them now. We're just joking as I mentioned look. Youtube is really powerful. And this just shows you why need to be on it you know. A lot of people are like Oh tech talk snapchat. It's all younger demographics. There's not any money in there. Where Ryan's Ryan's making a ton of money you know going after young kids and people who are a much younger audience than most would ever market too so it just shows that there's potential hamshaw almost all audiences because eventually all these audiences will end up with credit cards? It will end up purchasing an Yoon if they're too young and they don't have credit cards their parents for purchase for them. So don't be afraid to just go out there and go and try to do something even if other people are hating on at telling you it's not possible both telling you there's no money in it. Hey if there's a big market a ton of people the money will eventually fall. I think there's some other lessons from this too because what I what I look at the video so it's not like it's particularly well done. I mean it shirts a good video but it's not great. It's not something that really stands out. So what really sticks out is rides got his own little quirky personality as a kid. I think Gras Corky they also stay very consistent with the publishing schedule to know exactly where you're going to get from from that channel. which is why I mean? Twenty two point nine million subscribers share his. You know that the hurts though what they're doing and they've also you know you can also learn from from rides world is sure it like. Let's say you God bless you if you have a kid. That's helping you do well. But they've learned to also diverse fighter the income that they're getting they look. Look at the Post that I think it was written by not forced maybe it is Forbes but basically they own a couple of properties in this area you know they take care of their parents of the diversified investments. And they'll put all their eggs in one basket. So that's another lesson that you can learn and the other thing I want to call out if I turn back over to deal is if you look at number one. Earner it's Ryan Ryan Kanji and number two is perfect. Now do perfect. is they do their production quality or the bout of work that they have to put it to practice are actually way crazier because they're logic basketball's out of like helicopters or roofs tops. The buildings are really crazy. AIDS ad they earn twenty million bucks in kind of a twenty nineteen and then at third place was actually another child. Who who is only five years old and I believe she's Russian as you're eighteen million dollar

A new federal law took effect with the start of the new year requiring all hospitals to post on their websites. The price of every procedure and service. They offer the Affordable Care Act required hospitals to make these lists available. But until this week hospitals were not required to publish them. Before you start scanning the internet, keep in mind, what you will pay when you have a stay in the hospital or procedure done is based on what your particular insurance coverage is that's Jan Emerson shea of the California hospital association. In other words, nothing's really changing the price is still the price and your copay or deductible still determines what you pay. And if you are an uninsured individual the hospital can also work with you to determine whether you might qualify for a reduced price based on your particular financial situation. The new mandate is seen as a way to help improve price transparency in healthcare. Chris Edens, KNX ten seventy NewsRadio. Part of the metro green line is not.

Trump had been on my show in market research has all been in like the New York Times to say that I was Trump's right hand man which is not true everybody.
