The real reason American health care is so expensive
Hint: single-payer won’t fix America’s health care spending. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO Americans don't drive up the price by consuming more health care. They don't visit the doctor more than other developed countries: http://international.commonwealthfund.org/stats/annual_physician_visits/ But the price we pay for that visit - for a procedure - it costs way more: http://static1.squarespace.com/static/518a3cfee4b0a77d03a62c98/t/57d3ca9529687f1a257e9e26/1473497751062/2015+Comparative+Price+Report+09.09.16.pdf The price you pay for the same procedure, at the same hospital, may vary enormously depending on what kind of health insurance you have in the US. That's because of bargaining power. Government programs, like Medicare and Medicaid, can ask for a lower price from health service providers because they have the numbers: the hospital has to comply or else risk losing the business of millions of Americans. There are dozens of private health insurance providers in the United States and they each need to bargain for prices with hospitals and doctors. The numbers of people private insurances represent are much less than the government programs. That means a higher price when you go to the doctor or fill a prescription. Uninsured individuals have the least bargaining power. Without any insurance, you will pay the highest price.

President Obama's Health Reforms-Money for Health Care Reform, Rooting Out Waste, Fraud, and Abuse!
24th November 2009. http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMp0904854 Finding Money for Health Care Reform — Rooting Out Waste, Fraud, and Abuse John K. Iglehart N Engl J Med 2009; 361:229-231July 16, 2009 The National Health Care Anti-Fraud Association, an organization of about 100 private insurers and public agencies, estimates that some $60 billion (about 3% of total annual health care spending) is lost to fraud every year, but that figure is considered conservative. In 2008, government-wide "improper payments" cost the U.S. Treasury $72 billion, or about 4% of total outlays for the related programs.1 Of that amount, 50% took the form of reimbursements to providers, medical suppliers, and other Medicare and Medicaid vendors. Medicaid had an estimated improper-payment rate of 10.5%, or $18.6 billion, for the federal share of Medicaid expenditures — the highest rate of any federal program. Improper payments have been a "long standing, widespread, and significant problem" for the federal government,1 but Congress has not always been willing to appropriate the monies that the executive branch seeks for antifraud activities. In 4 of the past 5 years, Congress rejected Bush administration requests to provide an additional $579 million to combat health care fraud on the grounds that doing so would reduce budgets for curing cancer and combating obesity.2 Virtually no academic researchers study health care--related fraud activities, largely because — as Malcolm Sparrow, a Harvard professor of the practice of public management, testified recently — it "falls awkwardly between the traditional disciplines of health economics, health policy, crime control policy, anomaly detection and pattern recognition." In the past, legislators have failed to appropriate sufficient funds to combat waste, fraud, and abuse in Medicare and Medicaid. According to Weems, "there is not enough money [for the CMS] to be able to even pay the bills in a reasonable way. The agency feels vulnerable . . . especially on the fraud issue. . . . Right now, we way, way, way underspend for fraud and abuse."4 Weems said a major reason for the shortfall is that the CMS derives its administrative budget from the same appropriation subcommittees as the National Institutes of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and "the political interests of legislators are far better served by increasing the budgets" of those agencies "or protecting one of their threatened hospitals or nursing homes." One of the developments of concern to federal officials charged with fighting fraud is the recent increase of organized crime in the health care sector. As the DHHS's Morris testified recently, "Health care fraud is attractive to organized crime because the penalties are lower than those for other . . . offenses . . . there are low barriers to entry . . . schemes are easily replicated . . . and there is a perception of a low risk of detection." This article (10.1056/NEJMp0904854) was published on June 10, 2009, at NEJM.org. SOURCE INFORMATION Mr. Iglehart is a national correspondent for the Journal.

45% Wasted Money? An Account of Private Health Care Costs
Complete video at: http://fora.tv/2010/03/03/Sick_and_Tired_How_Americas_Health_System_Fails_Patients Helene Jorgensen, author of Sick and Tired, asks why Americans pay such high costs relative to the amount of care received. She faults unnecessary paperwork, billing practices, and pharmaceutical advertising as wasted health care expenditures. ----- As an active person, Helene Jorgensen decided to enjoy a hike in the mountains one afternoon while attending a conference in Montana. Warned by friends to beware of bears, Jorgensen was attacked by a creature much more menacing -- the Rocky Mountain wood tick. Sick and Tired is the story of Jorgensen's subsequent illness and her descent into the quagmire that is the American health care system. Returning home from her trip, Jorgensen is quickly debilitated by a mysterious illness and sets out to find a diagnosis and cure. Along the way, she is seen by countless doctors, none of whom seems to be able to diagnose her accurately. She undergoes two surgeries, is forced to quit her job as a labor economist, and is saddled with countless bills and denied payment for claims. Jorgensen quickly learns that the health care system does not work; finally diagnosed with Lyme disease, she struggles for years to receive proper medical treatment. Based on the author's notes and observations, statistics, and survey data, Sick and Tired details the health care system's failings and lays out arguments to fix it. As an economist, Jorgensen takes a critical look at conflicts of interest between doctors, pharmaceutical companies, diagnostic laboratories, and insurance companies that restrict treatment options and increase patient charges. While millions of Americans negotiate the health care system, and try to make sense of health care reform, Helene Jorgensen's saga may prove an important consideration in the national debate. She provides advice about how to seek better and more affordable medical care from physicians, health plans, and elected officials. - Booksmith

Prune Diet To Lose 4 Pounds In 3 Days!
Visit Our Website Here : http://bit.ly/2q90Dxh PRUNE DIET TO LOSE 4 POUNDS IN 3 DAYS! Have you followed a variety of diets to lose weight but none of them have been effective? Try our plums diet! Formidable enemy of constipation and booster of lazy intestines, prune is a fruit with multiple benefits and exceptional nutritional values. Prunes are rich in essential nutrients for the proper functioning of our body such as potassium, iron, magnesium, B group vitamins, calcium and beta-carotene. It also contains a lot of antioxidants that protect cells against the effects of free radicals, thus fighting against aging! This dried fruit has many benefits to health and in particular reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease by lowering bad cholesterol levels when consumed daily. It is also very good for bone health and helps prevent loss of bone density. But if there is one thing that prunes are so recommended, it is their laxative effect. Indeed, it has been proven by various scientific studies that prune is effective against constipation. This food is rich in dietary fibers that improve and regulate intestinal transit smoothly. But beyond that image of treating sluggish bowels, prune is also a great slimming ally! Indeed, prunes as dried fruits are low in calories and provide lasting satiety because of their fiber content. Also remember that prunes contain 0% fat! All the energy they bring to our body and brain comes from carbohydrates. The slimming effect of prunes has been the subject of study by researchers from the University of Liverpool. These have shown that the inclusion of prunes in your diet can be very helpful. The study focused on a hundred overweight people who consumed few fibers, which were divided into two groups. The first group ate a daily serving of prunes at a rate of 6 oz for men and 5 oz for women, as part of a 12 weeks slimming diet. Beside this, a balanced diet and physical activity were also in the slimming program, for both groups. At the end of the regime, the researchers found that the group that consumed prunes, recorded a loss of 4 pounds (in average), against 3 lbs for the other group. The scientists also found that prunes group managed to reduce waist size of 1 inch. That said, prunes can be very effective for weight loss! We suggest following a diet with daily servings of prunes. Note that this diet is very restrictive and that it should not be followed more than 3 days. Only healthy people can practice it. Also remember that physical activity is very important during the diet period, to maximize the results. You can do the exercises of your choice: 15 to 20 minutes of running, walking, fast walking, etc. Here is a typical day of a prunes diet: Breakfast: a bowl of oatmeal, 6 prunes and a cup of green tea Snack 1: An apple Lunch: Green vegetables (green beans, broccoli, zucchini and steamed egg Snack 2: An apple Dinner: A vegetable soup and an egg Following this diet for three days can help you optimize the process of weight loss, provided that you do not exceed the recommended time to avoid any deficiency problem. It obviously that you should not expect miraculous results, be realistic. Also note that results may vary depending on each individual, because we do not all have the same metabolism. Besides the slimming effects of plums, consumption of oatmeal and green tea also helps to lose weight. Oats are an excellent breakfast option. Very nutritious and low in calories, they are rich in protein and dietary fiber, which provide a lasting feeling of fullness and prevent snacking between meals. Green tea is also a real slimming ally. Its consumption increases energy expenditure and promote fat burning.

Rx-Xchange—An effective solution to rising costs of medications
Our business model identifies waste and overpayment for prescription medications and helps employers and employees work together to reduce expenditures. Using our system of medication data evaluation, consumer education and plan design, we can save employers and employees 20%-50% on the cost of medications. There are few new, innovative medications developed each year and the majority of drugs that are brought to the market are "me too" or "follow-on" drugs. Manufacturers make slight changes to an old chemical and charge exorbitant prices for their "new" patented drug. Our team of pharmacists evaluates the myriad of choices in medications and provide unbiased information and strategies to help employers and employees make better decisions regarding formularies, medication purchases and compliance. Improved decisions can result in savings and better clinical outcomes for employers and employees. Read more about Rx-Xchange at http://www.rx-xchange.com/about-rx-xchange

Milton Friedman Speaks: The Economics of Medical Care (B1234) - Full Video
Increasing government involvement in medical care will take us toward fully socialized medicine. This trend is clearly against the interests of patients, physicians, and other health care personnel. There is, of course, no such thing as "free" health care--you either pay for it directly, or via the tax system, with bureaucrats taking their usual cut along the way. The reality of the situation is that government involvement in the economics of medical care leads directly to higher costs for that care. There is no special role for government in medical care. Government should do there only what it does in other fields: Enforce laws against fraud and deception, and offer some assistance (comparable to flood or tornado relief) to those in extreme medical distress.

GCC Healthcare - Markaz Research
GCC Healthcare Industry Report Laudable Indicators, Avoidable Weaknesses & Viable Opportunities The GCC countries have, over the last decade, transformed themselves to a state that makes them comparable with developing and sometimes even developed countries, in terms of healthcare indicators such as life expectancy, mortality, fertility rate etc. This journey is largely attributable to the Governments' commitment to the improvement of both public health and the healthcare sector. Markaz GCC Healthcare report examines GCC states in light of the factors that encourage investment in the healthcare, such as the growth of Gross Domestic Product, inflationary expectations, the competitive environment, health policy, government willingness to boost the sector and taxation policy. It estimates that the share of private health expenditure will increase systematically in most GCC countries, noting that public health expenditure is projected at USD 50.96 bn in 2015 at 64% of total healthcare expenditure. While it studies healthcare policy in each individual GCC State, the report also explains how Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) are gaining ground in infrastructure sectors across emerging countries, stressing the significance of PPP deals in the field of medical, nursing and paramedical colleges to reduce the GCC's dependence on expatriate doctors, nurses and generate jobs for citizens. It also explains why penetration of health insurance market continues to be very low although several players have jumped on to the insurance bandwagon in the Gulf States. The authors of the report understand that diagnosis is not enough. They, hence, did not only diagnose the infrastructural and human resources weaknesses, but also made sure that this report would show its readers how these weaknesses offer potential entrants the opportunity to apply their expertise in a market where demand is fast growing.

Governor Brown Proposes 2015-16 State Budget
Significant details of the 2015-16 State Budget: Invests in Water, Flood Protection and Combating Climate Change The Budget includes the first $532 million in expenditures from the Proposition 1 water bond to continue the implementation of the Water Action Plan, the administration’s five-year roadmap towards sustainable water management. Additionally, the Budget includes the last $1.1 billion in spending from the 2006 flood bond to bolster the state’s protection from floods. It also proposes $1 billion in cap-and-trade expenditures for the state’s continuing investments in low-carbon transportation, sustainable communities, energy efficiency, urban forests and high-speed rail. The successful implementation of these projects and continued and even steeper reductions in carbon pollutants are necessary to address the ongoing threat posed by climate change. Implements Strengthened Rainy Day Fund and Pays Off Debt Under the Budget, the state’s Rainy Day Fund will have a total balance of $2.8 billion by the end of the year – an insurance policy against future economic downturns. The Budget spends an additional $1.2 billion from Proposition 2 funds on paying off loans from special funds and past liabilities from Proposition 98. In addition, the Budget repays the remaining $1 billion in deferrals to schools and community colleges, makes the last payment on the $15 billion in Economic Recovery Bonds that was borrowed to cover budget deficits from as far back as 2002 and repays local governments $533 million in mandate reimbursements. Increases K-12 School Spending by $2,600 Per Student Compared to 2011-12 For K-12 schools, funding levels will increase by more than $2,600 per student in 2015-16 over 2011-12 levels. This reinvestment provides the opportunity to correct historical inequities in school district funding with continued implementation of the Local Control Funding Formula. Rising state revenues mean that the state can continue implementing the formula well ahead of schedule. When the formula was adopted in 2013-14, funding was expected to be $47 billion in 2015-16. The Budget provides almost $4 billion more – with the formula instead allocating $50.7 billion this coming year. Holds Tuition Flat for College Students University tuition almost doubled during the recession, creating a hardship for many students and their families. The Budget commits $762 million to each of the university systems that is directly attributable to the passage of Proposition 30. This increased funding is provided contingent on tuition remaining flat. All cost containment strategies must be explored before asking California families to pay even more for tuition. Expands Workforce Training The Budget provides over $1.2 billion in funding to support a coordinated framework for adult education, career technical education, workforce investment and apprenticeships. These funds are intended to provide training and education to workers in California so they can develop the skills they need for self-sufficiency and greater personal advancement. Provides Medi-Cal Health Care Coverage to 12.2 Million Californians Due principally to the implementation of federal health care reform, Medi-Cal caseload has increased from 7.9 million in 2012-13 to an estimated 12.2 million this coming year. The program now covers 32 percent of the state’s population. This tremendous expansion of health care coverage for low-income Californians continues to be an administrative and financial challenge. Prefunds Retiree Health Care The state’s unfunded liability for retiree health care benefits is currently estimated at $72 billion. State health care benefits for retired employees remain one of the fastest growing areas of the state budget: in 2001, retiree health benefits made up 0.6 percent of the General Fund budget ($458 million) but today absorb 1.6 percent ($1.9 billion). Without action, the state’s unfunded liability will grow to $100 billion by 2020-21 and $300 billion by 2047-48. The Budget proposes a plan to make these benefits more affordable by adopting various measures to lower the growth in premium costs. The Budget calls for the state and its employees to share equally in the prefunding of retiree health benefits, to be phased in as labor contracts come up for renewal. Under this plan, investment returns will help pay for future benefits, just as with the state’s pension plans, to eventually eliminate the unfunded liability by 2044-45. Over the next 50 years, this approach will save nearly $200 billion. The full summary of the Governor’s Budget Proposal can be viewed at www.ebudget.ca.gov or www.dof.ca.gov.

What This Minimalist Stopped Buying | What My House Used To Look Like | Minimalism Journey
What This Minimalist Stopped Buying | What My House Used To Look Like. Subscribe: http://bit.ly/jerasky And some sneaks at what my house used to look like. I barely recognize the person in these photos... I'm like I wish I could warn you of all that's to come. You have no idea how much you are going to change as is the world. You're going to save money, you're going to have so much happiness, you're going to get out of debt, change your life and live your dreams. One of the major things I stopped buying when I became a minimalist, because I had time, and informed myself on things by watching documentaries, I stopped buying toxic chemicals, meaning, all those chemical cleaners you use to clean the house, the different stuff that you need, the bleach, what else did we used to buy... Windex, Comet, anti-bacterial soap, like Joy or Dawn, stop buying that stuff. Toothpaste, I stopped buying Crest, I bought myself natural things that did not have harmful chemicals, or abrasive chemicals to wear down the enamel of my teeth, which, it did. I stopped buying soda. I stopped, right around the time I started becoming a minimalist, I started caring a lot more about myself, and I stopped buying soda. I was penny-pinching, buy shampoo and conditioner from the dollar store. And use that all over me, you know, I would use shampoo as body wash, all from the dollar store, very toxic, who knows what's in it, it's from the dollar store, we don't, it's that ain't regulated very well. I buy natural things now. I stopped buying, one of the big things I stopped buying was DVDs, and TV, DVD player. Entertainment center, because now, the laptop is everything. You can have everything there, you can do everything, you don't have to do all this stuff, there's streaming, internet's gotten better, so. The thought of DVDs and having these tangible things, is just kind of pointless. At one point in my life, I did have, like, 2,000 DVDs. Toys, I used to be a really big collector of, like, vinyl toys, custom designer vinyl toys. But I liked Kid Robot, and Tokidoki, stuff like that. I stopped buying a lot of movie memorabilia. Another thing I stopped buying was furniture. Table, couch, all that stuff, because, I don't have a TV anymore, so where am I supposed to put the couch at, right. That's what Joey said. It's like, he's like, where does all your furniture point at if you don't have a TV, so, boom. That all went.I started caring more about my health, I stopped buying like, junk foods. I also stopped buying meat, because I learned more about everything and became vegan. I stopped paying for animal cruelty, and I think that's a great thing to give up. I stopped buying bedsheets, because I use the camp mat now, so I don't have, I don't have sheets of any sort. That's like, that idea's non-existent. I do have a pillowcase, but, I only need one. I stopped buying tons of extra stuff in the kitchen, like, bowls, and plates, and cups. When Brandon's mom came here, she was like, you don't have this, you don't have this, I was like no. Until you were here, we didn't need any of it, so. We only have what we are actively using day to day. Really helps a great bit. I found a better phone service, and I stopped overpaying for things I was never using or data I was never using on my phone. I will do another video about what exactly my phone is, and my phone bill, because, I pay about, anywhere from about, 27, to like 50 dollars, if I'm really using my phone, and that's it. That's all I pay a month on my phone. So, that saves, at one point in my time, I used to pay for the Sprint unlimited, unlimited, unlimited service, didn't even have insurance on my phone, I was paying $110 a month. Another thing that goes along with the health, I stopped spending money on alcohol, if I was going to have a drink, I would only drink it if it was free. For a portion of time there, a three-year period, where, I was spending a great deal amount of money on improv classes at The Upright Citizens Brigade, and I was doing, improv groups every weekend, and running a show, and, going to shows all the time, and contributing to the indie scene, indie improv scene here in Los Angeles, and just spending thousands and thousands of dollars. I now buy more books. Books are a very nice, sound investment. Books are a great investment, because you're investing in you, and, I actually find that investing in books, as opposed to college, is much better. Or investing in, YouTubers that you like... *▲Twitter* https://twitter.com/jerasky *▲Snapchat* @jerasky *▲Jera*Sky Hair Channel* https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0TDuopXYLVoG6ok0_RVzgA *▲My Books On Amazon* http://www.amazon.com/Jera-Sky/e/B019NZL0L0/ *Brandon's DIY 609 Credit Repair EBook* https://609creditrepair.com/ What This Minimalist Stopped Buying | What My House Used To Look Like | Minimalism Journey

Seward Stands With Public - 07-21
ONEONTA, 07/21/10 -- State Senator James L. Seward (R/C/I-Oneonta) today detailed concerns of constituents regarding the secretive process, record spending and billions of dollars in new taxes and fees included in the nearly complete 2010-2011 state budget. In recent weeks Seward has utilized multiple communication methods to gauge public opinion on the most secretive and dysfunctional budget process in New York history. "Those who live and work throughout the 51st senate district have spoken loud and clear -- they want to see state spending cut and taxes lowered," said Senator Seward. "I have consistently voted against out of control spending proposals offered by out of touch Albany legislators and will continue to oppose measures that place a higher tax burden on cash strapped families and businesses." Senator Seward recently launched an interactive on-line poll called "Cut It Out!: Citizens Cutting Government Waste." Over 1,600 people weighed in, casting their votes in favor of several cost cutting strategies offered by Seward. The public campaign helped shine the light on several shocking spending proposals including a $778,000 budget item to fund the purchase of two, double-wide trailer units to be used at a state correctional facility for "conjugal visits" between inmates and visitors. The spending item has since been dropped. "While public outrage helped embarrass state leaders into dropping one ridiculous expenditure, many others are still being forced onto New Yorkers. Cutting the state's exorbitant number of deputy commissioners, enacting real Medicaid reforms, and forcing state prisoners to foot a share of their taxpayer funded health care coverage were all ideas favored by the public but rejected by Democrats in charge in Albany." A recent telephone survey conducted by Rasmussen Reports also showed overwhelming support for fiscal restraint. The survey of likely voters in New York found that 79 percent say the best way to reduce the state's budget deficit is to cut state spending. "New York residents made it clear that they cannot afford the rising cost of state government and the billions of dollars in new taxes and higher fees being employed to pay for out of control budgeting. I have consistently championed a state spending cap and a property tax cap as methods of reining in unchecked spending, but supposed Albany reformers have failed to join me." Further evidence of the budget dilemma, New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli warned this week that questionable budget actions could result in a nearly $5 billion deficit this year. "Hardworking families and struggling businesses, especially those in upstate New York, feel defeated. We need to rekindle their hope in the Empire State. Unfortunately, the nearly complete state spending plan will only throw more cold water on the dreams of many. "I have voted against every piece of the unbalanced state budget so far, and will continue to do so unless major changes are made. Property tax relief, genuine spending restraint, a ban on unfunded mandates for schools and local governments, and incentives for upstate businesses need to be incorporated into the final budget plan. That's what the people want -- and that's what I'm fighting for." -30-

Free medical care for residents with serious illnesses in China
Follow us on TWITTER: http://twitter.com/cnforbiddennews Like us on FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/chinaforbiddennews Recently, a number of Chinese residents voluntarily came together to sign a letter to the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) National Health and Family Planning Commission, asking them to establish and implement a plan for providing free medical care for residents with serious illnesses in China. The letter asks for free medical care to cover everyone, and all cost to be covered by the government and social insurance. \ Will this appeal succeed? "Everyone is Equal in their Right to Life and Health!" A petition letter published on an overseas Chinese website says a Free Medical Care for Serious Illness Plan was applied in Shenmu County, Shaanxi Province in March, 2009, and promoters hope to replicate the system throughout China. The medical plan says a treatment costing over 400 yuan is regarded as serious and should be covered by the plan; the cost being paid by the government and social insurance, up to an annual sum of 300,000 yuan. The letter states that countries such as the United Kingdom, Denmark, Sweden and Canada, plus BRIC countries such as Russia, India and Brazil all provide free medical care, and Cuba and Chile have also done the same. China not only has no free health care system; its public hospitals have become a high-profit, money-making industry. On top of that, the government's minimal funding is unfairly distributed, mostly allocated to the millions of CCP members and government officials, says the letter, creating a hidden, serious social problem, leaving people with a low income and serious illnesses no option but to wait for death. The deadline of the appeal November 30. There are already four batches of signers, a total of 630 people. Beijing activist, Ye Jinghuan who signed the letter, told NTD that she feels for those who do not have money for treatment; she saw such people when she took her mother to the hospital. Ye Jinghuan: "I see a lot of people who give up treatment and go home to die, a lot of them; I'm very sad that lives are lost because of lack of money." Ye Jinghuan believes the authorities are fully capable of providing free health care nation-wide. Ye Jinghuan: “China has the economic strength to do it; it was said yesterday that its economy is second worldwide.” “So why is China behind in terms of health care, even compared to a country rated at number 100 economically?” China Week reported in 2011 that the World Health Organization (WHO) had clearly warned the CCP authorities that the government should fund the most basic public health so that hospitals will not have to ask patients for money. Data from the CCP Family Planning Commission indicates that China's health expenditure in 2013 was expected to reach more than 3.1-trillion yuan, of which personal spending accounted for about one-third. In other words, the combined total of residents' personal medical expenditures reached around one-trillion yuan; economic pressure on people seeing doctors remains high. U.S. based political commentator Chen Pokong said in 2006 that in terms of public health, the CCP ensures the interests of power groups and neglects its public duty; it has committed crimes against the Chinese people! Chen Yufei from Chengdu City is another activist who signed the appeal. He says the money to implement a free medical care system will actually come from the people, and he only hopes the government will not waste the money. Chen Yunfei: "The CCP says it is here to serve the people, but it actually exploits the people.” “It should implement free medical care, or else people can't survive; they'll have no choice but to overthrow the CCP." So, what do co-signers expect to see on the medical plan? Ye Jinghuan: "I think things might improve with our appeal, but it is very difficult to implement it across China.” “I think the government at all levels do not think of the people and do not care about the life or death of the people." Chen Yunfei says no matter what the outcome, the people are in pain and crying out; their voice should be heard in society. 《神韵》2014世界巡演新亮点 http://www.ShenYunPerformingArts.org/

Vote NO on Oregon's Measure 50
Oregonians will consider Measure 50 on this November's ballot. Measure 50 sounds good, but contains several dangerous loopholes. Did you know that over 70% of the money from the proposed tobacco tax increase won't be spent on children's health insurance? And what about the $65 million blank check the legislature can spend on any health care expenditure it wants. Those funds could even be spent on the huge no-bid contracts the state hands out to HMOs and health insurers to cover people on the state's health plan. Measure 50 will be the first time our constitution was amended to create a tax for a single product. Tobacco taxes don't belong in our constitution. What's more is that the legislature has frittered away hundreds of millions of dollars from the national tobacco settlement. We could already have already paid for a children's health insurance program, but now we're giving the legislature even more money to waste. We deserve a better plan. Vote "NO" on Measure 50.

This Year's INCREASE In Military Budget Could Fund College For Everyone
Because why not? Ana Kasparian, Michael Shure, and Brett Erlich, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://www.tytnetwork.com/join "Those concerns were brushed aside Monday night, as the Senate overwhelmingly approved an $80 billion annual increase in military spending, enough to have fully satisfied Sanders’s campaign promise. Instead, the Senate handed President Donald Trump far more than the $54 billion he asked for. The lavish spending package gives Trump a major legislative victory, allowing him to boast about fulfilling his promise of a “great rebuilding of the armed services.” The bill would set the U.S.’s annual military budget at around $700 billion, putting it within range of matching the spending level at the height of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. To put that in further perspective: If the package becomes law, U.S. military spending would exceed the total spending of its next 10 rivals put together, going off of 2016 military spending estimates from the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute.”* Read more here: https://theintercept.com/2017/09/18/the-senates-military-spending-increase-alone-is-enough-to-make-public-college-free/ Hosts: Ana Kasparian, Michael Shure, Brett Erlich Cast: Ana Kasparian, Michael Shure, Brett Erlich *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.

Rotich urges ministries to align spending to Uhuru goals
Treasury Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich has told ministries and departments to align their short and medium term expenditure to four priority areas President Uhuru Kenyatta identified in his last term. The goals are universal healthcare, food security, affordable housing and job creation through manufacturing. Mr Rotich said departments must scrap unnecessary spending to free up resources to be invested in the priority areas. “Sector budget proposals, both recurrent and development, will be reviewed afresh in the context of zero-based budgeting to create fiscal space for these priorities,” Mr Rotich said in the November 29 memo. “Every sector is required to recast the resource allocation criteria and justification for bidding.” From Monday, ministers and accounting officers of commissions and independent offices were to meet Treasury officials to align their spending with the President’s targets. GROWTH The economic adviser at the executive office of the President, Mr Mbui Wagacha, told the Business Daily that the four areas were part of the government plan to drive growth through public spending. They were also chosen to address social needs of the majority, said Dr Wagacha. “It is about investment-led growth that pays demographic dividends,” he added. Dr Wagacha said elimination of waste in recurrent expenditure could help finance the programmes sustainably to achieve the objectives. Analysts say the priorities reflect the quest to deliver social promises made during political campaigns, adding that how the government goes about implementing them would determine their success or failure. UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE Mr Robert Bunyi of Mavuno Capital said implementing a universal healthcare system, in particular, was likely to saddle taxpayers with a huge bill. “The big issue with universal healthcare is cost. It will be better to create more jobs and have people pay for themselves,” Mr Bunyi said. If implemented to mirror similar programmes elsewhere, patients would access healthcare for free, except for prescriptions and special services. The National Health Service in the UK pays the cost of most treatment for citizens. UK spending on healthcare is estimated at 9.1 per cent of GDP or nearly double Kenya’s 5.7 per cent, according to the World Bank. - video upload powered by https://www.TunesToTube.com

Trump’s New Healthcare Bill Includes ONE CRUCIAL PART That Will Make Obama CRY!
Trump Breaking News Network -Trump’s New Healthcare Bill Includes ONE CRUCIAL PART That Will Make Obama CRY! The GOP released their new Obamacare replacement and it’s already causing snowflakes to melt at overwhelming rates. One section in particular has Obama and his Democrat minions furious. The new bill DEFUNDS Planned Parenthood for at least a year! Not only is this a moral win for the country, it is also a HUGE fiscal win. Planned Parenthood costs the taxpayer $553 million annually. This time around, the bill would block Planned Parenthood from receiving Medicaid reimbursements. This is key since Planned Parenthood is famous for scamming Medicaid. A report published by Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) showed the various ways Planned Parenthood has engaged in abuse and potential fraud with American tax-dollars. “The report alleges that 45 public audits of Planned Parenthood affiliates, and 57 known audits of state family planning programs, found a “total of more than $129.7 million in waste, abuse, and potential fraud in federal and state family planning funding programs, the lion’s share of which goes to Planned Parenthood.” Source: https://libertywritersnews.com/2017/03/trumps-new-healthcare-bill-includes-one-obama-cry/ Trump Breaking News Network Ingles: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6KZqfNgPrGEJDRIUTHPwrQ https://youtu.be/NPoDvmJXNaw TRUMPTBNN

The secretary’s five flights, which were scheduled between Sept. 13 and Sept. 15, took him to a resort in Maine where he participated in a Q&A discussion with a health care industry CEO, and to community health centers in New Hampshire and Pennsylvania, according to internal HHS documents. The travel by corporate-style jet comes at a time when other members of the Trump administration are under fire for travel expenditures, and breaks with the practices of Obama-era secretaries Sylvia Mathews Burwell and Kathleen Sebelius, who flew commercially while in the continental United States. Price, a frequent critic of federal spending who has been developing a plan for departmentwide cost savings, declined to comment.---

Better housing, health, education pledged (21.6.2017)
Newly appointed Principal Officials today outlined their plans to address housing and medical problems and improve education. Secretary for Transport & Housing (Designate) Frank Chan said he will provide safe and hygienic accommodation for the needy, expedite the supply of public rental housing and rebuild the housing ladder. He said he will collaborate closely with the Development Bureau to optimise land and housing resources with an innovative mindset and increase land reserves to meet long-term housing demand. On transport, he said there is need to ensure infrastructure is in place to enable the sustainable development of Hong Kong and help enhance its competitiveness. He said to build reliable and efficient transport services of good quality, the Government will continue to focus on railway as Hong Kong's public transport backbone. Secretary for Development (Designate) Michael Wong said the planning, development and supply of land will continue to be the main focus of his bureau, noting a multi-pronged strategy will be sustained to increase land supply. With regard to public works, Mr Wong said he will endeavour to implement cost-effective capital works projects, adding conservation will be considered in these projects to ensure Hong Kong's sustainable development. He agreed with Mr Chan about the need to enhance co-operation and communication between their two bureaus and said they will forge a close partnership. Secretary for Food & Health (Designate) Prof Sophia Chan said she will safeguard public health, provide quality medical services, ensure food safety and environmental hygiene, and sustain the development of fisheries and agriculture in the next five years. On medical services, she will formulate long-term healthcare policies and take forward the dual-track system of public and private healthcare services through cross-sector and cross-disciplinary collaboration. Although issues such as long waiting times for patients, a shortage of healthcare professionals and the amendment of the Medical Registration Ordinance merit urgent attention, she said considerable efforts will be made to develop primary healthcare and Chinese medicine, and control and prevent communicable diseases. Secretary for Education (Designate) Kevin Yeung said he agrees with the Chief Executive-elect that education is key to nurturing talent and the Government’s education expenditure is the most significant investment for Hong Kong's future. "I shall make every possible effort to implement the relevant policy initiatives." He also highlighted the Chief Executive-elect's commitment to increasing recurrent education expenditure by $5 billion a year, noting measures will be announced soon after he takes office, and adding Legislative Council approval will be sought to implement priority measures in the 2017-18 school year.

Older generation is spending less to save more for life after retirement 

′노후 불
Korea′s older generations are becoming more hesitant to spend money these days. Statistics Korea says... the average propensity to consume, ...tumbled by eleven-and-a-half percentage points for people in their sixties... between 2003 and last year.

Pelosi Quotes George Washington to Demonize Republicans over Budget-Cites Mythical 'Cuts'
Newly elected dem FLAKE Nancy Peolosi continues her mindless charade and demonizaion fo the GOP. Not only haven't the cuts come into effect, the dems are seeking to halt them and may even be COUNTING THEM TWICE. The Budget Control Act of 2011 (BCA; P.L. 112-25) provided for an increase in the statutory limit on the public debt in conjunction with a variety of measures to reduce the budget deficit. Included in these measures was the creation of a Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction, which was tasked to develop and submit a plan to Congress containing deficit reduction to total at least $1.2 trillion over the FY2012-FY2021 period. However, because the committee did not report out recommendations, the BCA's automatic spending reduction process was triggered. This process, set to begin on January 2, 2013, would reduce federal outlays over the next decade unless legislation is enacted to prevent it. Both President Obama and some Members of Congress have offered proposals for repealing or modifying the automatic spending reductions. The President's FY2013 Budget Proposal eliminates the automatic spending reductions for all nine years and replaces them with alternative measures to reduce the deficit Following LInk ends in .pdf The link now shows up as infected, non hosted http://www.fas.org/sgp/crs/misc/R42675

Global Military Spending and the Arms Trade: Trends & Implications
Global military expenditure and the international arms trade are driven by changing economic circumstances, shifting priorities, emerging security threats, and regional and international instability. Examining the recent trends in the global arms market and in the budgets of government militaries allows us to identify potential hot-spots and future areas of concern. Each year, the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) releases data on current trends in military spending and international arms transfers. SIPRI’s Military Expenditure Database contains information on defense spending by almost all countries, and monitors broader trends that emerge over time. Likewise, SIPRI’s arms transfers database identifies top exporters and importers of conventional weapons. Drawn from open source documents, SIPRI’s databases provides analysis on the economic, political, and security drivers that influence military spending around the world and offers insights into their implications for global peace, security, and development.

Senate's Funding Plan for State Agencies Advances
State officials and representatives of Governor Mark Dayton's administration called upon members of the Senate Committee on State Government Finance to raise the level proposed by Senate Republicans for funding state agencies in the coming biennium . State Auditor Rebecca Otto, Minnesota Management and Budget Commissioner Myron Frans, Administration Commissioner Matt Massman and Revenue Commissioner Cynthia Bauerly appeared before the committee Tuesday, March 21, to urge changes to SF 605, the omnibus state government finance bill authored by committee chair Senator Mary Kiffmeyer, R-Big Lake. According to Senate fiscal numbers, the Senate proposal is about $143.5 million dollars below Governor Dayton's recommendations. MMB Commissioner Myron Frans said the Senate's level of funding would reduce state agency budgets by 5 to 7.5 percent. "Governor Dayton has made it clear that he will not accept arbitrary, across-the-board reductions in agency spending," he said. Last week, Senate Republicans released their budget targets, which showed a $30 million dollar reduction in state agency spending as compared to the base level of funding for FY 2018-2019. The state agency reduction is identified as part of the Senate Republican goal of offering $900 million dollars in tax relief while spending about $741.5 million dollars of the $1.65 billion dollar budget surplus for other areas of the state budget, including transportation. The bill was referred to Finance on a 6-4 party-line vote.

Economist Joseph Stiglitz: Trump's Budget Takes a Sledgehammer to What Remains of the American Dream
https://democracynow.org - The Trump administration unveiled its $4.1 trillion budget Tuesday. The plan includes massive cuts to social programs, while calling for historic increases in military spending. The budget proposes slashing $800 billion from Medicaid, nearly $200 billion from nutritional assistance programs, such as food stamps and Meals on Wheels, and more than $72 billion from disability benefits. The plan would also completely eliminate some student loan programs. It would ban undocumented immigrants from receiving support through some programs for families with children, including the child care tax credit. The budget also calls for an historic 10 percent increase in military spending and another $2.6 billion to further militarize the U.S.-Mexico border, including $1.6 billion to build Trump’s border wall.

End Social Security, Medicare, and the Welfare-Warfare State!
11/08/2010 - http://www.RonPaul.com Last week's midterm elections have been characterized as a victory for grassroots Americans who are fed up with Washington and the political status quo. In particular, the elections are being touted as a clear indicator that voters demand reductions in federal spending, deficits, and debt. If the new Congress hopes to live up to the expectations of Tea Party voters, however, it faces some daunting choices. For all the talk about pork and waste, the truth is that Congress cannot fix the budget and get our national debt under control by trimming fat and eliminating earmarks for "Bridges to Nowhere." Real reductions in federal spending can be achieved only by getting to the meat of the federal budget, meaning expenditures in all areas. The annual budget soon will be $5 trillion unless Congress takes serious steps to reduce spending for entitlements, military, and debt service. Yet how many Tea Party candidates who campaigned on a platform of spending cuts talked about Social Security, Medicare, foreign wars, or bond debt? With regard to entitlements, the 2010 Social Security and Medicare Trustees report tells it all. It paints a stark picture of two entitlement programs that cannot be sustained under even the rosiest scenarios of economic growth. No one, regardless of political stripe, can deny the fundamental problem of unfunded future liabilities in both programs. We should understand that Social Security was intended primarily to prevent old widows from becoming destitute. Life expectancy in 1935 was only about 65, when there were several workers for each Social Security recipient. The program was never intended to be a general transfer payment from young workers to older retirees, regardless of those retirees' financial need. Yet today Social Security faces an unfunded liability of approximately $18 trillion. First, Congress needs to stop using payroll taxes for purposes not related to Social Security, which was a trick the Clinton administration used to claim balanced budgets. Second, Congress should eliminate unconstitutional spending - including unnecessary overseas commitments - and use the saved funds to help transition to a Social Security system that is completely voluntary. At some point in the near future Congress must allow taxpayers to opt out of federal payroll taxes in exchange for never receiving Social Security benefits. Medicare similarly faces a shortfall of $30.8 trillion in unfunded future benefits. The Part D prescription drug benefit accounts for approximately $15.5 trillion, or half of the unfunded Medicare liability. Congress should immediately repeal the disastrous drug benefit passed in 2003 by President Bush and a Republican Congress. Fiscal conservatives should not be afraid to attack entitlements philosophically. We should reject the phony narrative that entitlement programs are inherently noble or required by "progressive" western values. Why exactly should Americans be required, by force of taxation, to fund retirement or medical care for senior citizens, especially senior citizens who are comfortable financially? And if taxpayers provide retirement and health care benefits to some older Americans who are less well off, can't we just call it welfare instead of maintaining the charade about "insurance" and "trust funds"? Military spending and interest on the national debt similarly represent large federal expenditures that Congress must address by rethinking our foreign policy and exercising far greater oversight over the Federal Reserve and the Treasury department. I have for a long time criticized our interventionist foreign policy and the Fed, and I will continue to do so. It's time for Congress to face the fundamental problems that affect Social Security and Medicare, and show the courage necessary to make real changes to both programs by rejecting the welfare/warfare state. -- Ron Paul is America's leading voice for limited, constitutional government, low taxes, free markets, a return to sound monetary policies, and a sensible foreign policy that puts America first.

Ron Paul Exposes Bizarre Spending Habits at the Federal Reserve & State Department
http://www.RonPaul.com - 03/01/2010 Last week I had the opportunity to bring up spending and transparency in two important hearings. On Wednesday I questioned Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke on some highly questionable uses of funds at the Federal Reserve, and on Thursday I asked Secretary of State Hillary Clinton about exorbitant spending at the State Department. It is extremely important to continue bringing these issues up, especially in light of our difficult economic times, when so many are out of work, as I saw up close in my district at the Oceans of Opportunity Job Fair in Galveston two weeks ago. Those who are working live with the fear of losing their jobs as they struggle to pay bills. Meanwhile, Washington is talking of increasing their taxes, something voters were promised, clearly and adamantly, would not happen in this administration. Government also struggles with money, but the struggle centers on how to get more of your money into government coffers. Rather than expanding the Federal budget in the face of economic downturn, we should be focusing on eliminating waste and being the very best stewards of public funds that we can possibly be. Most businesses have had to streamline and cut back in order to survive, and so it is only fair for our government to do the same. Instead, the State Department is building a $1 billion embassy in London, the most expensive ever built. The plans even include surrounding it with a moat! I asked the Secretary of State about this massive expenditure, and she claimed the funds for this were coming from the sale of other properties. If money can be saved, then save it! Don't spend it on such an extravagant structure overseas when people back home can't find jobs or pay bills. Not only that, but the administration has committed to doubling foreign aid. That is one promise that is likely to be kept, despite our economic crisis. I asked Chairman Bernanke about Federal Reserve agreements with foreign central banks and if he had had any conversations about bailing out Greece, which he flatly denied. However, he recently announced that the Federal Reserve will be looking into Goldman Sachs' derivative agreements with Greece. Goldman Sachs, as we know, has "too big to fail" status with the Fed, so it is conceivable that any Greece-related catastrophic losses at Goldman Sachs will once again be passed on to taxpayers. Perhaps most sinister are the revelations in Robert Auerbach's book "Deception and Abuse at the Fed" that $5.5 billion was sent to Saddam Hussein in the 1980s - money that allowed Iraq to build up its military machine to fight Iran prior to the first Gulf War, the very machine turned against our brave men and women within just a few years! I agree with Bernanke's characterization of this it is indeed "bizarre" to think that Americans at the Federal Reserve could engage in this type of behavior, which some have called "criminal". However, Professor Auerbach served as a banking committee investigator, and as an economist at the Treasury Department and at the Federal Reserve. His claims are hardly without merit. In fact, they are solidly backed by court rulings and other evidence. The lack of accountability and transparency in our leaders on government spending is appalling. We simply must keep pressing these issues and voicing our objections if we are ever to reverse our failed policies. --- Ron Paul is America's leading voice for limited constitutional government, low taxes, free markets, and a return to sound monetary policies.
