  • With billions at stake, a federal judge just nullified the GOP's most cynical attack on Obamacare

    Los Angeles Times ^ | February 10, 2017 | by Michael Hiltzik
    Moda Health, a small Oregon health insurer, just won a $214-million judgment against the federal government. Normally that wouldn’t be worth reporting, except that in awarding Moda the money, the federal judge in the case dismantled the most cynical attack on the Affordable Care Act that congressional Republicans had devised. The issue was the Affordable Care Act’s risk corridor program, which was devised to shelter insurers from unexpected losses in covering Affordable Care Act customers from 2014 through 2016. To encourage insurers to enter an entirely novel market, the program aimed to balance risks by taking funds from insurers that...

    Donald Trump ran for president on a promise to crack down on illegal immigration. But most of the people who are in the U.S. illegally live in places that voted for his opponent, Hillary Clinton. More than 2 million of the nation’s roughly 11 million undocumented immigrants live in just two metropolitan areas, New York and Los Angeles, according to a new analysis of 2014 Census Bureau data from the Pew Research Center.1 Voters in both cities supported Clinton by overwhelming margins. Most of the remaining 9 million undocumented immigrants are concentrated in large urban areas that likewise voted for...
  • Mexico warns citizens after US deportation of undocumented mother

    Mexico warned its citizens living in the United States on Friday to "take precautions" and remain in contact with consular officials a day after the deportation of an undocumented mother following a routine visit with US immigration authorities. Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos, 35, was deported Thursday after she checked in with the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement office in Phoenix, Arizona, a day earlier. Mexican consulates "have intensified their work of protecting fellow nationals, foreseeing more severe immigration measures to be implemented by the authorities of this country, and possible violations to constitutional precepts during such operations and problems with...

    BERKELEY — UC Berkeley will host a “guerrilla archiving” event Saturday to save federal data in the public interest from a presidential administration that has expressed scorn for science and claims climate change is a hoax. The event, run by a group of Bay Area information technology experts, scientists, researchers and activists, is co-sponsored by UC Santa Cruz’ Science and Justice Center. DataRescue events feature the downloading of data, from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA) and Department of Energy (DOE), related to climate change, alternative energy, and toxic...

    PORTLAND, Ore. – Detectives on Thursday arrested two men accused of damaging several Northwest Portland businesses during a post-election protest that devolved into a riot last November. Protesters marched through the streets of Portland for five straight nights in opposition to the election of Donald Trump. Several people damaged cars and businesses in Portland's Pearl District. Investigators identified 19-year-old Elijah K. Gerard and 19-year-old David Deron Lewis Jr. as suspects after the two men were seen in photos and videos damaging property. Gerard damaged a Jeep and assaulted the driver, police said. He’s also accused of damaging Seres Restaurant and...

    Soak up these rainy days. They are not going to last forever. Summer will be here before you know it, and if recent trends continue, it will likely be a hot one. Globally, 2016 was the warmest year on record. Here in Los Angeles, temperature records were shattered last summer during scorching heat waves that saw highs of 100 degrees for five days straight. If you think the city is too hot, you’ve got company at City Hall. Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti agrees, and he wants to do something about it. As part of a sweeping plan to help...

    A new Quinnipiac poll released last week shows more American voters support President Trump's executive order to temporarily suspend immigration from several Middle Eastern and North African countries. By a margin of 48 percent to 42 percent, voters supported "suspending immigration from terror prone regions, even if it means turning away refugees".

    When people first started talking about Donald Trump running for president, Sarah thought it was a joke and not something she had to take seriously. But then on 8 November, she says the “unthinkable” happened; Trump won the election. Sarah immediately called her husbandand told him, “That’s it. I want to go, and I’m not kidding.” His response, she says: “I know. We can go.” So, next month, Sarah, 43, her husband, 45, and their two school-aged daughters will uproot themselves from the small Midwest town and leave the US for a country thousands of miles away. They have no...

    The Guardian ^ | January 24, 2017 | by Oliver Milman
    If there were any lingering doubts over Donald Trump’s enthusiasm for shoving the US back into the smoggy embrace of fossil fuels, his decision to revive the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines banishes them utterly. Trump has thrown down the most provocative gauntlet possible to the environmental movement, which now sees its worst fears crystalizing within a few days of the inauguration. This will be an aggressively pro-oil and gas administration, even if that means boiling the planet. “Donald Trump has been in office for four days and he’s already proving to be the dangerous threat to our climate...

    The Environmental Protection Agency will delay implementation of the Renewable Fuels Standard and the Agriculture Department will pause rules affecting livestock as part of a freeze on regulations imposed by President Donald Trump's administration, trade groups said on Tuesday. The Trump administration put a hold on new regulations immediately after he was sworn in last week, leading to the delayed implementation of 30 EPA rules that were finalized in the last weeks of Barack Obama's presidency. At the USDA, "they put a regulatory freeze on everything that is in the pipeline," said Dave Warner, spokesman for the National Pork Producers...

    In the small southern market town of Molcaxac, 650 miles (1050 km) from the U.S. border, Alicia Villa is praying to God that Republican candidate Donald Trump does not become the next president of the United States. Over the past two decades, as Mexico's rural economy stalled, Molcaxac and hundreds of towns like it became dependent on dollars sent by relatives who made the perilous journey north, a lifeline she fears will be cut by a Trump White House. Villa, 65, said funds sent by a daughter working illegally as a house cleaner in Sacramento, California have supported her family...

    The last of the major American health insurers to have a big presence in the Obamacare marketplaces for 2017 warned Wednesday that it may not remain there for long if business doesn't improve. Anthem CEO Joseph Swedish, calling sales of Obamacare plans "disappointing" since 2013, said "Clearly, 2017 is a critical year as we continue to assess the long-term viability" of the insurer's presence on Affordable Care Act marketplaces. If it does scale back its Obamacare business, Anthem, which sells plans on ACA exchanges in 14 states, would join other big U.S. insurers — United Health Group, Aetna and Humana...

  • Donald Trump Used Legally Dubious Method to Avoid Paying Taxes (Slimes hit piece)

    Donald J. Trump proudly acknowledges he did not pay a dime in federal income taxes for years on end. He insists he merely exploited tax loopholes legally available to any billionaire — loopholes he says Hillary Clinton failed to close during her years in the United States Senate. “Why didn’t she ever try to change those laws so I couldn’t use them?” Mr. Trump asked during a campaign rally last month. But newly obtained documents show that in the early 1990s, as he scrambled to stave off financial ruin, Mr. Trump avoided reporting hundreds of millions of dollars in taxable...

  • U.S. can add as few as 50,000 jobs per month and still be healthy, Fed study finds

    Market Watch ^ | October 24, 2016 | by Greg Robb
    The U.S.economy only needs to generate about 75,000 jobs — and possibly as few as 50,000 — each month to maintain a healthy labor market, according to a study released Monday by the San Francisco Fed. That’s down sharply from the 192,000 average payroll gains seen over the past three months. Because the economy is close to what the Fed calls “full employment,” the future is less about creating an even stronger labor market than about maintaining a healthy one, said San Francisco Fed President John Williams in a speech last week.

She added the customer discontent hadn’t had a “material impact” on sales.
