In which John discusses the complicated reasons why the United States spends so much more on health care than any other country in the world, and along the way reveals some surprising information, including that Americans spend more of their tax dollars on public health care than people in Canada, the UK, or Australia. Who's at fault? Insurance companies? Drug companies? Malpractice lawyers? Hospitals? Or is it more complicated than a simple blame game? (Hint: It's that one.) For a much more thorough examination of health care expenses in America, I recommend this series at The Incidental Economist: http://theincidentaleconomist.com/wordpress/what-makes-the-us-health-care-system-so-expensive-introduction/ The Commonwealth Fund's Study of Health Care Prices in the US: http://www.commonwealthfund.org/~/media/Files/Publications/Issue%20Brief/2012/May/1595_Squires_explaining_high_hlt_care_spending_intl_brief.pdf Some of the stats in this video also come from this New York Times story: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/06/02/health/colonoscopies-explain-why-us-leads-the-world-in-health-expenditures.html?pagewanted=all This is the first part in what will be a periodic series on health care costs and reforms leading up to the introduction of the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, in 2014.

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.

Ellen Lee Zhou, a Sensible San Francisco Mayoral Candidate Ellen Lee Zhou: I am 100% against recreational cannabis (part 2) Cannabis create government waste on health care systems. “According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, for every $1 taxed in the recreational cannabis industry, there is $5 of public health expenditure,” said Ellen Lee Zhou. “Reviving those who overdose, or related issues costs $17,000-$23,000 a day per person. Every dollar is taxpayers’ money. Adult cannabis users should take responsibility for themselves and not waste taxpayers’ money. Our public health system has huge expenditures. We work hard to regulate smoking cigarettes, but legalized cannabis use, this is extremely unethical.” The current city government and Board of Supervisors allowed cannabis stores to open right next to day care schools – this is very sad. I had raised signs to call on the federal government to target San Francisco recreational cannabis stores and participated in various public hearings to oppose recreational cannabis next to any facility that cater minors under 18 years old. I was nominated to run for San Francisco mayor by the anti-marijuana, San Francisco Coalition for Good Neighborhoods, to be a voice for the people, against cannabis. This is why I am running for mayor. Please vote Ellen Lee Zhou for Mayor to keep drugs away from San Francisco communities. https://www.ellenleezhouformayor2018.com Nonpartisan Candidate, Ellen Lee Zhou Political views: San Francisco is heading towards the wrong direction. If I am elected mayor, I will lead San Francisco in the right direction, return ethics to City Hall, and bring back American values. I aim to be a nonpartisan public servant with integrity. I will adhere to justice and compassion in order to create win-win policies for San Francisco residents, and rebuild a better San Francisco. Political Standpoints: No on legalization of marijuana No on criminal protection under sanctuary law No on unfair laws targeting small property owners No on AB1726 Data Disaggregation Bill (separation categorization of Asian groups) and SCA5 (affirmative action). Values ethics; promises to allow federal agents to execute federal laws to arrest criminals; supports increasing affordable housing tenfold; against tax increase; increase business opportunities; supports enforcing federal law, and working with federal agents; aims to have open and transparent government. Promises to give back 50% of mayor’s salary in service of residents in each district. Mission: As a psychiatric social worker, Ellen Lee Zhou knows well the consequences of marijuana abuse. It pains her to hear that the San Francisco government approved legalization of recreational marijuana. She realized that in order to heal people, their hearts needed to be healed. Only by returning ethics to San Francisco, will there be hope. After actively leading the San Francisco citizen protests against marijuana, District 11’s San Francisco Coalition for Good Neighborhoods nominated her to run for mayor. She advocates for social justice and citizen rights. About Ellen: Born in Taishan, Guangdong, China, Ellen Lee Zhou moved to the United States when she was in high school and has lived in San Francisco for 32 years. She has a Master’s degree in Social Work and currently works as a Behavioral Health Clinician for the San Francisco Department of Public Health. Fluent in English, Cantonese, Taishanese, and Mandarin, she is a certified translator. She and her husband have been married for 23 years and have a son and daughter. Both of her children are in college in the UC system. She has been a social worker for more than 20 years, and a Sunday school teacher for over 20 years. She champions traditional family values. https://www.ellenleezhouformayor2018.com

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

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. ALL GOVERNMENT ORGANIZATIONS ARE PART OF THE INTELLIGENCE GRID.

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

Chuck Close on supporting the arts even in a recession. Chuck Close: I don't like my tax money going to support the war in Iraq. I don't like it buying Humvee's in the first place, but I really don't like buying Humvee's that are not armor protected for our soldiers. Would I take food out of the mouths of orphans and clothes off the back of people living in assisted care institution to give to artists? No, I wouldn't. Is it as high a priority as global warming or the fight for the cure for AIDS, or poverty, or anything? No, I wouldn't argue that it is. But our government does a lot of things. It spends money on many things that are far more frivolous. In fact, I don't think art is frivolous at al. But we spend money on things that are truly frivolous while art is seen as a frivolous expenditure. And if you're thinking about money as stimulus, you don't have to look very far to see the positive affect that the arts have on the financial health of our country [USA]. More people go to see art in the museums of New York City than attend all sporting events combined. More money is spent on admission to art museums than all those sporting events put together; notwithstanding the $200 a seat price of going to a Yankee game and $10 to get into MoMA. We bring more tourism into the city than all those sporting events; and more people come here and stay in hotels to see theatre, ballet, opera, and attend art museums than come here for conventions. So, we are valuable to the communities in which we exist directly, financially. Every dollar spent in the arts has about $100 in return, in terms of the way it moves through society, whether it's hotel rooms, and the people who are making the beds, and the people who are carrying the luggage, and the bartenders in the bars, and the people who run the restaurants. That dollar re-circulates about 100 times. I would suggest that it's an investment that our government could justify in terms of how it kick-starts the economy. That it is truly leveraged and that is the stimulant that our economy needs. Recorded on: February 5, 2009 Chuck Close: I don't like my tax money going to support the war in Iraq.

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.

The debate about health care continues in Washington but one thing remains constant—health care costs continue to rise. To combat this trend, medical systems, academics and industry leaders have embarked on an effort to promote so-called high-value health care, which focuses on decreasing costs and increasing its worth. Is it possible to have better care at lower costs? Paul Rothman will ask a panel of experts how to provide better care while reversing the course of crushing medical costs. What role do medical systems, insurers, patients, physicians and caregivers need to play in turning the tide and how can Capitol Hill help? Learn more at http://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/inhealth

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

Medicare Part D, also called the Medicare prescription drug benefit, is a United States federal-government program to subsidize the costs of prescription drugs and prescription drug insurance premiums for Medicare beneficiaries. It was enacted as part of the Medicare Modernization Act of 2003 (which also made changes to the public Part C Medicare health plan program) and went into effect on January 1, 2006. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medicare_Part_D The Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 (Division A of Pub.L. 110–343, 122 Stat. 3765, enacted October 3, 2008), commonly referred to as a bailout of the U.S. financial system, is a law enacted in response to the subprime mortgage crisis authorizing the United States Secretary of the Treasury to spend up to $700 billion to purchase distressed assets, especially mortgage-backed securities, and supply cash directly to banks. The funds for purchase of distressed assets were mostly redirected to inject capital into banks and other financial institutions while the Treasury continued to examine the usefulness of targeted asset purchases. Both foreign and domestic banks are included in the program. The Act was proposed by Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson during the global financial crisis of 2008 and signed into law by President George W. Bush on October 3, 2008. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emergency_Economic_Stabilization_Act_of_2008 Wealth inequality in the United States (also known as the wealth gap) refers to the unequal distribution of assets among residents of the United States. Wealth includes the values of homes, automobiles, personal valuables, businesses, savings, and investments. However, according to the federal reserve, "For most households, pensions and Social Security are the most important sources of income during retirement, and the promised benefit stream constitutes a sizable fraction of household wealth" and "including pensions and Social Security in net worth makes the distribution more even". Just prior to President Obama's 2014 State of the Union Address, media reported that the top wealthiest 1% possess 40% of the nation’s wealth; the bottom 80% own 7%; similarly, but later, the media reported, the "richest 1 percent in the United States now own more additional income than the bottom 90 percent". The gap between the top 10% and the middle class is over 1,000%; that increases another 1000% for the top 1%. The average employee "needs to work more than a month to earn what the CEO earns in one hour." Although different from income inequality, the two are related. In Inequality for All—a 2013 documentary with Robert Reich in which he argued that income inequality is the defining issue for the United States—Reich states that 95% of economic gains went to the top 1% net worth (HNWI) since 2009 when the recovery allegedly started. A 2011 study found that US citizens across the political spectrum dramatically underestimate the current US wealth inequality and would prefer a far more egalitarian distribution of wealth. Wealth is usually not used for daily expenditures or factored into household budgets, but combined with income it comprises the family's total opportunity "to secure a desired stature and standard of living, or pass their class status along to one's children". Moreover, "wealth provides for both short- and long-term financial security, bestows social prestige, and contributes to political power, and can be used to produce more wealth." Hence, wealth possesses a psychological element that awards people the feeling of agency, or the ability to act. The accumulation of wealth grants more options and eliminates restrictions about how one can live life. Dennis Gilbert asserts that the standard of living of the working and middle classes is dependent upon income and wages, while the rich tend to rely on wealth, distinguishing them from the vast majority of Americans. A September 2014 study by Harvard Business School declared that the growing disparity between the very wealthy and the lower and middle classes is no longer sustainable. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wealth_inequality_in_the_United_States

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.

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.

http://www.ecoMaster.com.au Looking for an energy efficiency assessment for your business or commercial facility? An ecoMaster Commercial Assessment will support you in understanding the thermal performance of your facility, empowering you to make lasting changes to improve the comfort and reduce the energy costs of your building. TRANSCRIPT: "If you're a business owner you already know that there's only two ways to increase your bottom line: one is to increase revenue, and the other is to reduce costs. One of the easiest costs to reduce is your energy expenditure. Here are a few ways you might be wasting energy: 1. Through the Building Structure Itself 2. Through Loss of Conditioned Air 3. Through Multiple Air Conditioners Competing with Each Other. One, the Building Structure itself. You might have a building that has concrete walls, concrete is not a good insulator. And if you've ever sat next to a concrete wall you'll know how uncomfortable that can be in the winter time. And that leads to inefficient things like blow heaters under the desk and incessant fiddling around with the air conditioning thermostat. If you've got a lot of glass, then you'll know that it's freezing cold in the winter time and boiling hot in the summer time. And that leads to maximising your air conditioning use. Number two, loss of conditioned air. This can come about in many ways, for example, through gaps in the building fabric itself, such as doors, vents, suspended ceilings and skylights. Another way is through exhaust systems that are built into the building. These can be expelling a lot of conditioned air, air which then has to be re-conditioned so your air conditioners are working overtime. And finally, user behaviour plays a big part, employees and visitors are not responsible for your energy bill, and so very often they can use the air conditioning while leaving the doors open. Three, air conditioners competing with each other. It's very common in facilities, where multiple air conditioners service the one space, to find some heating at the same time as others are cooling. That's a great waste of energy. But every facility is different, and that's where an ecoMaster commercial assessment can help. We can identify areas of energy waste and make a detailed retrofit plan for your facility. We've already helped many businesses in this way, such as medical facilities, offices, child care centres, and accommodation, such as small hotels and bed and breakfasts. An ecoMaster commercial assessment is the first step towards a having a much more comfortable facility, that's cheaper to run and better for the environment too."

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.---

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.

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.

New research from the Republicans on the Senate Budget Committee shows that over the last 5 years, the U.S. has spent about $3.7 trillion on welfare. "We have just concluded the 5th fiscal year since President Obama took office. During those five years, the federal government has spent a total $3.7 trillion on approximately 80 different means-tested poverty and welfare programs. The common feature of means-tested assistance programs is that they are graduated based on a person's income and, in contrast to programs like Social Security or Medicare, they are a free benefit and not paid into by the recipient," says the minority side of the Senate Budget Committee. "The enormous sum spent on means-tested assistance is nearly five times greater than the combined amount spent on NASA, education, and all federal transportation projects over that time. ($3.7 trillion is not even the entire amount spent on federal poverty support, as states contribute more than $200 billion each year to this federal nexus—primarily in the form of free low-income health care.) "Because the welfare budget is so fragmented—food stamps are only one of 15 federal programs that provide food assistance—it makes effective oversight nearly impossible, at the same time disguising the scope of the budget from both taxpayers and lawmakers alike. For instance, it is easier for anti-reform lawmakers to oppose food stamp savings by obscuring the fact that a household receiving food stamps is often simultaneously eligible for a myriad of federal aid programs including free cash assistance, subsidized housing, free medical care, free child care, and home energy assistance. "In the UK, six of the nation's welfare programs have been consolidated into a single credit and total benefits have been capped at £26,000 (about $42,100 per family) in an effort to both improve standards and decrease net expenditures. A similar reform concept in the United States—combining welfare spending into a single credit—would still result in a surprisingly large welfare benefit while reducing expenditures and allowing for reforms that encourage self-sufficiency. For instance, a CATO study found that an average household in the District of Columbia currently receiving the six largest federal welfare benefits (Medicaid, TANF, SNAP, etc.) receives assistance with a converted cash value of $43,000. In Hawaii, it's $49,000. Hypothetically, if net benefits from these myriad programs were combined into a single credit and capped at even 95 percent of that very large amount, it would save taxpayers billions while enabling reforms to promote self-sufficiency, reduce the penalty for working, and make the system fairer for taxpayers."

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/

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-

Are you selling or planning to sell expensive items viz. cars, watches, shoes, jewellery, furniture etc. This video will give you practical ideas which are result of my own experience of selling and training. Even if you are not in selling, these tips may change your class from general class to high class. General class means upper middle class, middle class and lower middle class. If you want to sell to these high class people then you need to think like them, eat like them and adopt an attitude of elegance. They do not waste time in locating cheap or economical vegetables or fruits or grocery. They wear branded clothes, shoes, necktie, wrist watch etc. Suggestions for you: do not do bargaining at stores. Wear branded clothes and buy branded products only. Upgrade the brand of your perfume, spectacles, goggles, shoes, nail paint etc. Do not use pre paid mobile connections. Go for post paid mobile connections only. During conversation, if your air time gets exhausted means you are no where. use petrol vehicles. No CNG and LPG vehicles. Your email ID should be at your own domain name eg. firstname.lastname@example.org and not gmail yahoo or hotmail etc. High class people do not use anything which is free. Go to good restaurants for dining out. road side stall will give you two chapaties and a daal @ 15/- only where as same two roties and a daal at a five star restaurant will be available at 700/- but this seven hundred will get you good clientele. Travel by upper class pnly. The travel in lower class is an expenditure where as travel in upper class is an investment. Your co-travelers can be your clients. Watch movies at multiplex only and that too in upper class only. This motivational video for success in Hindi is being dedicated to all those sales personals who sell luxury products and expensive items from Rado, Longines, Raymond Weils, Mercedes Benz, Audi, Tanishq, Park Avenue like brands.

Camfil Food & Beverage Industry Air Filters Ph: 888.599.6620 http://www.camfil.us/Industries/Food--Beverage/ Don't become a statistic. Protect your people. Protect your processes. Protect your products. Lower your risk. The challenges and regulations facing food processors continue to intensify. With recalls of food contamination on the rise, all manufacturers are at risk. The time has come when you can no longer ignore the effect air quality has within your plants, and on your product. Air and the contaminated particles carried with it can come in contact with your product, yet it's often not properly considered or evaluated. Left unfiltered, dirty air basically becomes an ingredient in your product. Removing unwanted particles from the air to maintain the safety of your product is but one of the many responsibilities you have to the public. Camfil air filters reduce contamination risks and lower overall filtration cost. Here's how. Camfil designs filters with three key attributes in mind: efficiency, low resistance to airflow, and high dirt holding capacity. A filter in a food or beverage plant must capture the very small particles which are too small to be seen by the human eye. Low-priced filters use course fibers, often produced with an electrostatic charge. This artificial charge quickly dissipates, causing a loss in particle efficiency and letting dangerous airborne contaminants bypass. This is not an acceptable situation for a food processing facility. Camfil filters feature fine fibers with no artificial charge added. These fibers maintain their efficiency for the life of the filter, continuously capturing small particles. Our higher efficiency air filters reduce the potential for contamination by reducing a number of pathogens, mold spores, or other unwanted particles in a given volume of air. A filter's other job is to help maintain consistent airflow throughout a building. Using proven airflow techniques borrowed from the aerospace industry, Camfil air filters are engineered to maintain airflow requirements two to three times longer than competitive filters. The result, your HVAC system faces less resistance and doesn't work as hard to move air through the system, resulting in dramatic energy savings. Imagine new energy savings with no capital expense. One more good news, greater airflow will help pressurize your building and minimize biological contaminants from entering due to negative air pressure. Camfil filters can maintain this high level of performance for at least twice as long as your current filter, perhaps even longer. Increasing the amount of dirt a filter can hold while maintaining rated efficiency and air flow extends the working life of the filter and means fewer change outs. Changing filters less often lower labor expense, reduces or eliminates the need for outside vendors, lessens the risk of industrial accidents, and lowers disposal fees. Fewer filters used annually also means less waste shipped to landfills and demonstrates your company's commitment toward sustainability. At Camfil, we understand the specific challenges facing the food and beverage industry. Camfil air filters guarantee benefits not available from any other manufacturer or supplier. We are able to demonstrate actual savings by evaluating your current HVAC system using our life cycle cost software. It's a program that leverages over 20 years of experience and data analysis. You'll see for yourself how Camfil filters are a critical and intelligent part of your plant's energy plan, total cost savings strategy, and commitment to public health and safety. So, don't become a statistic. Protect your people. Protect your processes. Protect your products. Call your Camfil representative today.

12/14/1962 - Addressing the Economic Club of New York, John F. Kennedy makes the case for tax cuts. This is audio of the address with accompanying video of President Kennedy. I have digitally remastered the audio and video for maximum clarity and minimal noise. Full version (part 1 and part 2 combined) for download/embedding and full transcript: http://tinyurl.com/lhlpbk ----------------------------------------- "In short, to increase demand and lift the economy, the Federal Government's most useful role is not to rush into a program of excessive increases in public expenditures, but to expand the incentives and opportunities for private expenditures." "... next year's tax bill should reduce personal as well as corporate income taxes, for those in the lower brackets, who are certain to spend their additional take-home pay, and for those in the middle and upper brackets, who can thereby be encouraged to undertake additional efforts and enabled to invest more capital." "Our true choice is not between tax reduction, on the one hand, and the avoidance of large Federal deficits on the other. It is increasingly clear that no matter what party is in power ... an economy hampered by restrictive tax rates will never produce enough revenues to balance our budget just as it will never produce enough jobs or enough profits." "... it is a paradoxical truth that tax rates are too high today and tax revenues are too low and the soundest way to raise the revenues in the long run is to cut the rates now." "The purpose of cutting taxes now is not to incur a budget deficit, but to achieve the more prosperous, expanding economy which can bring a budget surplus." "I repeat: our practical choice is not between a tax-cut deficit and a budgetary surplus. It is between two kinds of deficits: a chronic deficit of inertia, as the unwanted result of inadequate revenues and a restricted economy; or a temporary deficit of transition, resulting from a tax cut designed to boost the economy, increase tax revenues, and achieve ... a budget surplus. The first type of deficit is a sign of waste and weakness; the second reflects an investment in the future." "This Nation can afford to reduce taxes, we can afford a temporary deficit, but we cannot afford to do nothing. For on the strength of our free economy rests the hope of all free nations. We shall not fail that hope, for free men and free nations must prosper and they must prevail." John F. Kennedy Address to the Economic Club of New York Delivered 14 December 1962 -----------------------------------------

Table of Contents: Summary of Bundled Payment Programs 1:43 What is Bundled Payments for Care Improvement (BPCI) Advanced? 12:04 Data Sources and Organizational Diligence 34:57 Operationalizing Bundle Success 51:57 Learn how to use bundled payments to enhance your organization’s overall network and population health management value. In January, CMS announced the Bundled Payment for Care Improvement Advanced “BPCI Advanced” program, initiating renewed interest in a total cost of care payment model for specific episodes of care. Regardless of your organization’s current decision to participate, it’s important to understand how bundled payment programs have the ability to significantly decrease your internal costs, broaden your revenue opportunities, and improve patient outcomes across specific populations. The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation’s newest iteration of bundled payments provides another tightly-defined program that allows organizations to scale Population Health Management. Best practice suggests that tactical interventions to assess clinical variation, implement strategic care redesign programs, and to adjust care management-facilitated patient stratification models are important to be successful with bundled payments – so knowing how to implement them is crucial. One organization’s savings is another’s income and without making overhead allocation changes, bundled payments may reduce revenue that has been critically important to maintain hospital profitability. View this webinar to learn: • What is new with bundled payments • The ramifications bundles can have across organizations • Leveraging data and strategic analysis to identify opportunities for bundled payment success • Operationalizing successful care program tactics to be successful in bundled payment contracts Leading out in this webinar, Jonas Varnum, MHSA, is a Health Catalyst population health management consultant with demonstrated expertise delivering payment model transformation and helping providers and payers to strategically adjust their operations based on new bundled payment contracting practices.

The Affordable Care Act is a serious attempt to make health insurance available and affordable to every legal resident—an important goal. But it is extremely and unnecessarily complex and has done little to mitigate the burden of health expenditure growth—an important problem.
