    Obama Announces New Budget; Texas Refuses Medicaid Expansion

    in News

    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.

    First Things 1st America! Where are the Jobs? Medicaid Expansion Prevents Deaths

    in Politics Progressive

    Every Congress has a job to do for citizens of America. What does congress do? Nothing! What does 113th congress need to do for Americans? Pass veterans bills. Pass President's jobs bills. Expand medicaid. pass universal back ground checks. Renew unemployment benefits. raise minimum wages. Moratorium on H1B Visas. Do not increase immigration numbers. Pass immigration reform. Pass infrastructure bill. It this seems like a lot, it is. Because GOP has been a do nothing congress!


    Congress' job is to pass bills into laws to improve America for the greater good. What does the leader in 112th and 113th congress do? Nothing!


    111th Congress passed the Affordable Care Act bill into law. What did 112th Congress do? Voted 50 times to repeal Affordable Care Act law!


    113th congress resides over Border crisis. The resolve is not to neglect children of American citizens  while  exhibiting  charity, compassion under the guise of humanitarian act to children of world citizens.


    113th Congress job is to resolve homeland crisis before adding to homeland crisis. The bills many bills blocked by this 113th congress, once passed will put America on footage to the greatest society ever. And here is where we have a problem. The GOP met Jan 20, 2009 with a plan to sabotage the presidency of Barack Obama. The only way to create even an image of failure on the part of President Obama is to destroy Americans. The destruction of America's economy is the result of GOP 1) blocking bills; 2) outsouring US jobs; 3)continuing the importing of H1B visas when qualified Americans need those jobs; 4) locking our American workers.


    There are bills to be passed that will fix our economy, but we cannot fall prey as a society to increase immigration numbers over the next decade. We have to 1) penalize employers who are hiring illegal immigrants 2)

    Venita Smith, C & J Trophy and Engraving

    in Business

    Venita and her husband, Duwayne, own C & J Trophy & Engraving, a family business.  The couple makes it work by setting serious boundaries.  Nestled between the University of Memphis campus and the Orange Mound Community, one of the largest and oldest black neighborhoods in the country. They purchased the business and property had been in business for over 30 years. The startup risk was low, but the stakes were high since they knew nothing about the awards and recognition industry.  For the first few years, The Smiths didn’t change a thing.  Fortunately, Venita had experience in retail and operations management and her husband had background in color proofing and lithographic photography, so they threw caution to the wind and went for it. And, eight years later, the rest is history.


    Her first job, was at the Memphis in May International Festival as Secretary. That position would lead becoming its Operations Director for 10 years. That led her to become the Director of Operations at the National Civil Rights Museum.  During her 16-year tenure, she assisted with two renovation projects and two expansion projects all while managing the day-to-day operations of the 40,000 square foot facility, 13 full time staff members, security, housekeeping and IT contractors.  Venita retired in 2014 to focus more on the family business.


    With her father owning a shoe repair business for over 30 years and her mother, who was a beautician and owned her own salon, Venita was destined to become an entrepreneur. Venita watched her parents as they worked together like hand and glove to provide a comfortable lifestyle for her family. They managed to work together as a team, like she and her husband Duwayne. Venita is the brain and Duwayne is the brawn.

    Soul Solution Radio - Things We Still Believe In That We Know Aren't True

    in Spirituality

    Happy new day & in la kesh everyone! On today's new episode of Soul Solution Food for the Soul Radio, we will be talking about different ideas and thought patterns that are not congruent with living a life that is balanced and harmonious. Many of us have been programmed with old beliefs that did not originate from our inner knowing and truth. Forcing ourselves to hold on to these old thoughts cause resistance and blockages in the body. This usually results in mental confusion and the inability to gain a higher level of awareness for self-empowerment and development. It is important to remember that in each moment, everything is different and we must stay in the flow of new creation in order to gain new awareness as things change and evolve. What may have been true 10 years ago, or even last week, may no longer be true today. Staying open and flexible to new ideas and change is essential for your well-being and consciousness expansion.

    Also join us in one of our group DNA activation sessions which take place every Wednesday at 8pm CST/9pm EST. You can learn more about our DNA activation sessions as well as our other cleaning, clearing & reconnecting services and the high vibrational products we have available to assist you with your consciousness expansion.
