GOOD NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!

Obamacare Headline in Rural Arkansas

by Arkshep for Arkshep

  •  
In a real life example of how Obamacare is changing everything, our local newspaper ran an article about the closing of the 9th Street Ministry Medical Clinic.
"It was announced last week that 9th Street Ministries will be concluding their medical clinic mission, which had been ongoing monthly to offer free medical services to those in need since first starting in 1998. The final day for the medical clinic will be Thursday, April 24, and that will conclude the mission that has been in place for almost 16 years."
The article tells how the ministry has been operating once a month for years to give people healthcare on a first come, first served basis.  This care was provided by volunteers. My mother actually volunteered at the clinic and they would see as many as 300 a day.  Many of these people would wait all day for the chance to see a doctor.  Most of the patients were people who could not afford to see a doctor, but were not eligible for medicaid or medicare.  Why would they close this clinic down?
"We’ve gone from seeing around 300 people a month on a regular basis, but as people were enrolling in Obamacare, the numbers we were seeing have dropped. We were down to 80 people that came through the medical clinic in February, all the way down to three people at the medical clinic in March. Our services won’t be needed anymore, and this will conclude our mission.”
We live in one of the most conservative places in Arkansas.  The Repub's want to tell those people that once a month waiting all day for a chance to see a doctor was good enough.  Thankfully, President Obama did not think so.

THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE!!!!!!!!!!!! THIS--THIS IS WHY I AM FOR VOTING EACH AND EVERY REPUBLICAN OUT OF OFFICE!! TOO MANY ARE FIGHTING FOR OIL COMPANIES RIGHT TO POLLUTE AND TOO MANY ARE FIGHTING FOR INSURANCE COMPANIES RIGHT TO RIP PEOPLE OFF--BY TAKING THEIR INSURANCE AWAY JUST WHEN THEY NEED IT THE MOST.


IN ADDITION--THERE IS >>>>>>>>>>

More evidence Obamacare is working to provide the health care people need

Bang-up statistics for rates of insurance under Obamacare are one thing, but for the truly human benefit of the law, you have to look deeper. And here's an excellent example: Actual health care, in the form of prescription drugs, is getting to the people who need it.
 
People who signed up early for insurance through the new marketplaces were more likely to be prescribed drugs to treat pain, depression and H.I.V. and were less likely to need contraceptives, according to a new study that provides a much-anticipated look at the population that signed up for coverage under the new health care law. […]
The study, to be released Wednesday by the major pharmacy-benefits manager Express Scripts, suggests that early enrollees face more serious health problems and are older than those covered by their employers. The study also showed a higher use of specialty drugs, which are often used to treat diseases like cancer and rheumatoid arthritis; the use of such drugs could hint at more costly medical problems.[…]
In addition to finding increased use of drugs to treat pain, seizures and depression, the study also found that 6 in every 1,000 prescriptions in the marketplace plans were for drugs that treat H.I.V., a number that was nearly four times the figure among those with employer coverage.
That's because, of course, people with HIV, cancer and rheumatoid arthritis could have been barred from getting health insurance before the law. It's not terribly surprising that the first enrollees out of the gates—and the first to be registering prescriptions—would be the people with serious, chronic conditions that kept them out of the market previously. As the study's authors write, "This early analysis suggests this new benefit is providing patients with access to the medication they need."
That's just one more thing Republicans want to shut down with repeal: people getting the treatments they need to survive.

AND YET THERE ARE STILL MANY WHO VOTE REPUBLICAN----WHY; VOTE FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE WORKING SO HARD AGAINST YOU AND YOUR FAMILY--DO YOU HATE YOURSELF OR THEM THAT MUCH---THEN WHY?????????????????

This Is Why

I Support Our President---This Is Why Need To Keep the Senate Democrat--This is Why We Need To Achieve a Democratic House! I know and understand and respect the fact that many of my fellow Independents still hold onto the Independence by voting a split ticket, Unfortunately that is only causing grid lock, We Independents Need and Must Unite behind the Democrats, as long as the Republican Party is controlled by the Religious Right (Christian Extremists) and the Tea Party( Haters) >>>>>This Email>>>>
President Obama: "When women succeed, America succeeds."
Kay Morrison is 90 years old. And in 1943, when she worked as a journeyman welder on the assembly line at Kaiser Shipyard #2 in Richmond, California, she earned the same wage as the man working the graveyard shift alongside her.
As Kay said, "it can be the same today."
And yet, on average, full-time working women earn just 77 cents for every dollar earned by men.
Earning equal pay starts with a conversation -- and that's why, this week, President Obama signed an executive order prohibiting federal contractors from retaliating against employees who choose to discuss their pay.
In 2014, it's time for equal pay for equal work.

Because There Are Many White Men Who Read This Such as  Brian Hogan, who hides behind his children of Facebook, who are so angry they want to impeach the president, for what? Actions such as this.

I got this very important email that is very worth sharing--So I am>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Hey -
I just got this email from Demand Progress about Comcast's jerk of a lobbyist. We need to make sure everyone sees this to help fight back against this disastrous merger with Time Warner.
You'd think Comcast super-lobbyist David Cohen might show some class. Maybe he'd even be humble knowing that 52 percent of Americans think Comcast's merger with Time Warner is a bad idea.
Instead, Cohen says he hasn’t heard any “rational, knowledgeable voices” opposed to the merger.
So much for humble.
Let's tell David Cohen that millions of very knowledgeable, very rational people oppose this merger: http://act.demandprogress.org/letter/Cohen/?referring_akid=a10386458.1375214.pdRfT1&source=auto-taf
It’s rational to oppose giving Comcast an untold amount of market power. And it's rational to be weary of the implications for privacy, freedom of speech, and what's left of our open Internet.
And we remember when Comcast got busted for violating Net Neutrality--which makes us pretty knowledgeable. We also know about their data caps and their plans for complete media domination. And we also know Comcast was just voted the worst company in America!
Let's wipe that smirk off Cohen's face.
Click here to add your name to our letter to Comcast's top lobbyist, David Cohen: http://act.demandprogress.org/letter/Cohen/?referring_akid=a10386458.1375214.pdRfT1&source=auto-taf
We'll pass on your very knowledgeable and rational message that this merger is awful.
Thank you for your passion,
-The Demand Progress Team

AFTER ALL, WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!!

Ohio Unite, once again, to vote Kasich out of office

This is why>>>>
Since taking office, Governor Kasich has cut more than over $500 million from Ohio’s public schools and increased funding for failing charter schools.  In recent days, almost every major newspaper in Ohio has run a story or an editorial about this flawed system. We’ve pointed to the governor’s cuts to public education for some time. Check out what others are saying about the failing charter schools into which our tax dollars are flowing:
“Charter schools have changed the landscape of public education in Ohio. For the most part, the changes have worked to the detriment of traditional public school districts. As a three-part report in the Beacon Journal this week demonstrates, this unfortunate result is due largely to state laws that have imposed financial burdens on districts without ensuring consistent oversight and accountability for the use of public funds by privately operated charter schools.” Click here to sign our petition asking Governor Kasich to support public education.
“While Ohio lawmakers fail to take steps to hold charter schools more accountable for how they use millions of dollars in tax money, evidence mounts that this lax approach yields bad results……. This has left little way to judge whether public money is being spent reasonably, and the abysmal academic track record of some of the biggest recipients suggests it often isn’t.” Click here to sign our petition asking Governor Kasich to support public education.
Democratic lawmakers announced legislation Tuesday that would require increased scrutiny and access to certain records of charter schools that receive public funding.
“’The growing problem is we don’t know how most of these taxpayer dollars are being spent,’(State Senator Joe) Schiavoni said.

Too Late>>>>>>

RNC, Please Don’t
Peruse any of the various stories about the Republican National Committee considering Las Vegas for the 2016 convention and the stories will read as if the GOP is going open handed to its sugar daddy, Sheldon Adelson.

Already, Republicans across the nation are tripping over themselves in the rush to bask in Mr. Adelson’s presence and pledge their undying loyalty to him. Many of these Republicans are willing to ban online gambling to further Mr. Adelson’s business interests. He owns casinos.

It is embarrassing. A party that is trying to show it represents Main Street, not Wall Street, and the middle class, not the American aristocracy, should not put itself in a position where all the news stories suggest they want a convention in Vegas to placate a donor...According to the Red State.

Too Late, the GOP has already proven that they are Anti-Middle Class by Fighting ObamaCare and by Weakening/ Disabling Unions and by fighting against repairing the infrastructure of the United States and by cuts in Education funding and by each and every one of their members who cut  employees hours for their own profit and by bankrupting our youth with student loan debt and by fighting any raises in the minimum wage and by causing the Government Shut down that was and by cutting each and every service that the poor need in order to provide tax cuts for the very rich. So Yes, thanks to the Supreme Court They do have to 'Kiss Their Sugar Daddy's Ring'.

United State of America--When Will Enough Be Enough????

 
By Mark Follman
Details are still emerging as to exactly how and why Army Spec. Ivan Lopez shot 3 people to death and injured 16 others in a rampage on Wednesday, but we already know enough to be certain about one thing: We've seen this grim story before, and not just literally at Fort Hood, the site of a previous bloodbath in 2009. As the data from our in-depth investigation of mass shootings in America shows, Lopez fits a familiar profile for perpetrators of this type of crime. Here's how his background and actions echo those of many mass shooters we analyzed from 67 cases over the past three decades. [READ MORE]
 Yet again, Another soldier comes home with Post-Dramatic Stress-- who does not get the treatment he needs, but is able to legally purchase any weapon with enough ammo to start his own war.

WHAT IS THE NRA'S SOLUTION--MORE GUNS AND AMMO FOR MORE PEOPLE!! WHY--$$$$$$$$$$$$$$!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! After all, the NRA is $$$Funded$$$ by Weapon Manufacturers. The more weapons and ammo that is bought, the more $$$$MONEY$$$ they make and donate to the NRA, who in turn donate it to Conservative Lobbyist and Conservative Spin Doctors--Otherwise Known as Television Evangelists. THIS IS THE UNHOLY ALLIANCE OF CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIANITY--REPUBLICAN PARTY--NRA, WHO ARE ALL  BOUND TOGETHER BY THE LOVE OF $$$MONEY$$$, WHILE HIDING BEHIND THE CROSS OF JESUS.

IS IT ANY WONDER THAT THE GROSS IN-JUSTICE HAPPENED TO DR. WU. After all, it was 1957. Republican Dwight D. Eisenhower was in the White House. Republican Joseph McCarthy was free to terrorize every who may or may not have ever been a member of the Communist Party. It was a White Male Heterosexual Christian America, where everyone else was a Second Class Citizen who was suppose to be happy with the scraps from their table.

THIS IS ALSO WHY SO MANY ARE NOW ARMING UP--THEY ARE TERRIFIED ABOUT BECOMING THE MINORITY--AFTER ALL, LOOK HOW THEY--WHITE MALE HETROSEXUAL CHRISTIANS USED AND ABUSED OTHERS WHEN THEY WERE THE MAJORITY--THEY ARE TERRIFIED OF BECOMING THE PRESECUTED MINORITY.

Chien-Shiung Wu
"Chien-Shiung Wu took a different route to support the war effort. The Chinese-born American was already in her thirties and teaching physics at both Princeton University in New Jersey and Smith College in Massachusetts. Her work garnered the attention of the U.S. Government during WWII and was invited to work on the Army’s secretive Manhattan Project at Columbia University. Dr. Wu helped developed the process that enabled the enrichment of uranium ore to produce large enough quantities to make the atomic bomb. Later she discovered a principle in physics which overthrew a then widely held belief about the law of symmetry. The discovery earned the Nobel Prize of Physics in 1957, but only Dr. Wu’s two male colleagues were given the credit. She spent the rest of her life lecturing and encouraging women to participate in science. The “First Lady of Physics” died in New York in 1997."
If both her male colleagues received Nobel Prize in Physics--Dr. Wu should have too. This gross In-Justice needs and must be corrected.
