SORT BY Relevancy
In this VERY IMPORTANT episode of The #SocialSpitballShow, we will be hearing from Lindsey Benage, who has facilitated the organization and coordination of National Medicaid Expansion Vigils to observe the potential lives lost in the 23 states that DID NOT accept Medicaid Expansion tax dollars that originated in each respective state.
In the midst of a busy election season, we need to stop and focus on the issues that matter to all citizens of the United States of America. This is a show to do just that.
Let's share this link with all of our friends and get the conversation going....
Dr. Clara Belle Wheeler gets one-on-one with “Brother Craig” and reveals “The REALLY, Real, Deal” about Medicaid Expansion and why it will eventually bankrupt the state and make the problem with Medicaid fraud even worse. Join the conversation and share with your friends.
In the last election cycle (2014), we saw great movement on a lot of issues...in both good and bad directions. It was bad that 21 states had not moved forward on expanding Medicaid when we last talked with Lindsey Benage of Kansas.
The good news in that month that was rapidly moving toward what turned out to be a bad midterm election in terms of progress was that Lindsey & her networks had organized Medicaid expansion vigils in several states, including her home state of Kansas. The aims were to bring awareness to the numbers of people that could die without the benefits of Medicaid coverage and move legislators and government executives to take action on these matters of life and death.
A lot has happened in the last six months on the issue of Medicaid expansion. Barbara Dee & Bram Sarkowski will check in with our friend Lindsey Benage for the first time since October, 2014. We look forward to finding out what has been done and what we can do next!
Our second guest is a long time listener & supporter who does his part to combat the war being waged on the poor in this country in matters of medical care and other issues. He personally sees the urgent need for medical insurance and is irate with Governor Rick Scott for his treatment of those that would qualify for Medicaid if they expanded in Florida. There are other issues that those living on or below the poverty level deal with that we'll get into with Fred & Lindsey, as well.
There will be plenty to talk about in this episode. As always, we encourage you to call in with your comments or questions using the number (646) 478-3349!!
We look forward to hearing from you and from Lindsey and Fred!!!
Let's get the conversation going...
Texas Continues to Refuse the Medicaid Expansion
Last June, the Supreme Court struck down a requirement of the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, that would have forced states to expand Medicaid coverage to cover a greater amount of their uninsured. States, states have a choice whether or not to implement the Medicaid expansion, which the federal government will fund fully for the first three years, and cover all but up to 10 percent in those years following. The expansion will include those 138 percent below the poverty line who are between the ages of 18 and 64. A number of states have since vowed opt out of the expansion... the largest being Texas.
Texas has the highest amount of uninsured residents in the U.S. at 24 percent. Yet, Gov. Rick Perry, the state legislature, and their congressional delegations, have all taken firm stands against this expansion. We talk to John Davidson, Health Care Policy Analyst at the Texas Public Policy Foundation. President Obama Announced New Budget Plan The White House today released the outline of the annual budget proposal they will announce next week. More conservative than the president’s last budget proposal and the Senate budget passed recently, analysts are seeing a lot of compromise. Some of the compromise is likely to garner criticism such as cuts to Social Security. However, such efforts to get House Republicans to pass such proposals don’t seem to be working as House Speaker John Boehner has already said the president is holding real reform to entitlements – quote – hostage. We talk to Bernie Becker, Staff Writer for The Hill.

Organizations that sponsor ERISA retirement plans have long struggled with the complexities of their vendors' fee arrangements. The Department of Labor ("DOL") blames much of that struggle on an information gap that divides plan managers and vendors.
During a lengthy study prior to 2010, the DOL found that evaluations of fees charged to participants in ERISA plans was largely driven by a plan's vendors, through intricate, multi-page reports that were filled with complex industry jargon and formulas. The DOL's findings were the impetus for the expansion of the duty held by plan sponsors to conduct an analysis of their vendors' fees and to document the results.
The Nonprofit Executive Leadership Forum will host a special podcast on Thursday, February 11th at 12:00 PM Central. We've invited Ron Hagan, Chairman of the Fiduciary Standards Committee at Roland|Criss, back to the Forum chair to explore with us how and why the fee disclosure law has thus failed to spark the change so many desired...to be the life preserver that retirement plan sponsors desperately need. During this session, we will cover key trends and reveal resources of which every CFO and Human Resource executive should be aware. You will not want to miss this!
SATURDAY HIGH NOON
What's the matter with Kansas? "The Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy recently reported that Kansas has the ninth-most unfair tax system in the county. A Kansan earning $47,700 a year pays 9.5 percent of income in state and local taxes; but someone earning $1,191,700 pays an effective rate of just 3.6 percent."
So much for the 'trickle down' libertarian economic theories masterminded by the Wichita plutocrats Charles & David Koch; and implemented by Gov. Sam Brownback and his cronies in the state legislature.
