US: Senate Should Scrap House Health Bill

One of the most important ways the ACA achieved success in insuring more people was by expanding Medicaid to cover people with incomes up to 137 percent of the federal poverty level, providing health coverage to an additional 14 million people in 31 states. The American Health Care Act  would cut Medicaid by US$880 billion over 10 years, replacing the federal program with block grants to states and, beginning in 2020, setting caps on the amount of federal funding that could be spent per person. Medicaid expansion would be frozen for states that have already pursued it and phased out entirely by 2020.

Many states that expanded Medicaid under the ACA saw dramatic improvements in healthcare coverage for their residents. In Louisiana, for example, more than 400,000 people have gained health insurance coverage since July 2016 – more than 60 percent of them women.

Human Rights Watch spoke to one such woman in Louisana, “Jacquelyn.” She has endometriosis, a condition in which tissue that normally grows in the uterus grows outside it, for which she had to undergo surgery at a time she did not have insurance coverage. She made monthly payments to the hospital, then was able to go on the TV program Wheel of Fortune. She used her winnings to pay off the US$25,000 in medical bills.

Trump's Budget Is a Cynical Attack on College​ Students

Include $168 million for career and technical education; $96 million for adult basic literacy instruction; and ending a $15 million program that provides child care for low-income parents in college.

In a sign of just how cynical and punitive this budget is, none of these cuts are being made to funnel money into new or different higher education programs that try to better tailor funding to the most vulnerable. To the contrary, the effect is just to take billions of dollars away from college students. Period.

While the suggested cuts are scary enough, here’s a closer look at who would be particularly hurt if Congress enacted these changes and how much students stand to lose.

Ends loan subsidies for undergraduate students

The newest blow to students in Trump’s budget is a proposed phasing out of subsidized loans for undergraduates. Currently, the federal government pays the interest that accrues on federal student loans for students with financial need while they are enrolled in school, during their six-month grace period after leaving school, and if they go back to school. In 2015-16, more than 6 million students borrowed more than $23 billion in subsidized loans, most of whom also received Pell Grants for low-income students.

How can a poor young American be independent these days?

I mean we got a bad economy and prices are going high. I am a green card holder, has a useless AA degree and works in a store for years. What will I do if I lose my job? The mortgage alone, is not half paid.

What is your AA degree in?? If there are no jobs where you are, why aren't you going to the jobs??

I have an AA in information technology. I couldn't find a job where I was - Pacific Northwest. I went to where the jobs are - East Coast.
