If Health Law Is Overturned, What Will Liberals Do?

There are 4935 comments on the thecaucus.blogs.nytimes.com story from Mar 28, 2012, titled If Health Law Is Overturned, What Will Liberals Do?. In it, thecaucus.blogs.nytimes.com reports that:

If the Supreme Court strikes down all or part of President Obama 's health care law , it will have unraveled a legislative compromise that many liberals had viewed with suspicion from the beginning.

In one of the ironies of recent politics, Mr. Obama was a late convert to the merits of the individual mandate that now appears to be in danger of being declared unconstitutional.

But the president’s embrace of the mandate — and his willingness to abandon a so-called public option to get a health care deal — was a hard pill to swallow for many of his Democratic supporters.

The Affordable Care Act promises to provide health insurance to millions who lacked it. But it also stops far short of the idea that health care is a basic right for everyone living in the country. And it embraces the market-based system of private health care delivery that has long existed in America.

February 2, 2013 – AUSTRIA – A 4.5-magnitude quake shook southern Austria on Saturday, the country’s ZAMG meteorological and geodynamic institute said, but it was not immediately clear whether it had caused any damage. The quake struck at 14:35 pm (1335 GMT) and “was strongly felt” in the Karavanke mountain range bordering Slovenia, near Eisenkappel in Austria’s southern state of Carinthia, the centre said. About two months ago, an earthquake measuring a magnitude of 4.3 on the Richter scale hit the Slovenian side of the Karavanke mountain range, some 25 kilometers (15 miles) southwest of the Austrian border. In the year 2000, Austria’s eastern provinces and its capital Vienna were shaken by the strongest earthquake in 20 years, Austrian television reported. The quake, which measured 4.8 on the Richter scale, caused minor damage to buildings in the provinces of Lower Austria and Burgenland. The epicenter was in the Lower Austrian town of Ebreichsdorf, some 20 km (13 miles) south of Vienna. –Global Post People’s Daily

Australia - A temporary village is being built in Bundaberg to house people whose homes have been ravaged by destructive floods. The 300-bed village is being built at the city's showgrounds and it's hoped to be opened within the next couple of days. The village will provide a more comfortable existence for hundreds of residents who remain in evacuation centres in the wake of the disaster.
Authorities have so far assessed 3670 flood-damaged houses in Bundaberg, with 38 houses rated as unliveable. Another 356 have been rated as severely damaged with 784 listed as having medium damage with floodwaters rising above power points. Residents were finally allowed to return to their homes at the weekend. Entire homes were swept from their stumps and truck-sized sinkholes have opened up in some roads.
As Bundaberg begins the long road to recovery, the same process is playing out at other flood-ravaged communities across the state. The army is on its way to help isolated communities between Bundaberg and Gladstone, including Baffle Creek, Lowmead and Rosedale. In Baffle Creek, "The tavern has water over the roof. Homes that have never seen floodwaters through the floor have had floodwaters above the window sills."
Roads linking towns with Bundaberg have also suffered severe damage. On the western Darling Downs, inland from Brisbane, floodwaters are tormenting locals, rising and falling ahead of an expected peak sometime on Tuesday. The Condamine River, in Condamine, is currently at 10.3 metres and slowly dropping but it's expected to reach 11.7 metres on Tuesday. And floodwaters are expected to remain high until late this week, leaving many residents isolated.----- It look,s like OZ is having more then its share of problems. Why not make preps just im case im correct and this is indeed a end of an age pole shift. Its possible its not caused by mans activities and cant be mitigated.

Because if you live in fear of an unknown enemy then you may as well put a gun to your head. Climate change action put a face on something positive we could all do something about and in the end if it made no difference at least we would feel good along the way doing it. That is the big difference between you guys on the right side of politics is that there is always something to fear. So you gear your life around having the enemy at the gate. Be it Obama, communism,religion, ideology, science or just plain common sense. This is not living, its a life of paranoia. If I want to enjoy my twilight years then i'm going to always live it like there is a better tomorrow then at least i will die happy. In otherwords I want to be on vacation somewhere throwing a line in or teeing up a golf ball when the asteroid hits rather than being bunkered up waiting. That is what true liberal's are about.

You seem kinda like a ostrich with its head buried in the sand. the trouble is the earth change isnt a one time anomoly. its happened at regular intervals. and its not the end of mankind its a new beginning. its a very exciting time to be incarnated upon the earth. I prefer to educate myself and learn all I can about it. I will embrace the new adventure. I hoping to help my grandchildren and other young folks survive the coming clatyclisms . You on the other hand seen to be totally decidated to a service to self orientation. its not fear or paranoria that drives me its seeing the big picture and the good I might accomplish. But you go ahead and be a greedy sheele and do and think as you want. your the one who will have to live with the results. those folks who flooded out did you do anything to make their situation better?

February 6, 2013 – SOLOMON ISLANDS - Several people were killed when tsunami waves generated by a major earthquake slammed into the Solomon Islands, damaging villages, as warnings were triggered across the Pacific. At least five people died after the 8.0 magnitude quake struck near the remote Santa Cruz Islands in the Solomons at a depth of 28.7km. Two powerful aftershocks of 6.4 and 6.6 magnitude were also recorded.“We can report five dead and three injured. One of the dead was a male child, three were elderly women and one an elderly man,” said Chris Rogers, a registered nurse at Lata Hospital in the Santa Cruz Islands. Local officials reported two 1.5-metre waves hit the western side of Santa Cruz Island, damaging between 60 and 70 homes in at least four villages, said George Herming, a spokesman for the prime minister.“At this stage, authorities are still trying to establish the exact number and extent of damage. Communication to Santa Cruz Island is difficult due to the remoteness of the island,” he said. It was not immediately apparent whether all the victims died in the tsunami. Two of the four villages on Santa Cruz suffered severe damage, said Solomon Islands Police Commissioner John Lansley. Other areas of the Solomons did not appear to have been seriously affected. Solomon Islands Red Cross secretary general Joanne Zoleveke said she had been told at least three villages were hit.“In the Solomon Islands when we talk about villages there can be anything from 10 to 30 houses,” she said.“We have received a lot of information about houses washed away but we haven’t heard about any deaths as yet. That is what we are waiting for.” Earthquake monitoring agencies earlier said a wave measuring about a metre had been recorded at Lata on Santa Cruz, the main island in the eastern Temotu province, which has a population of about 10,000. Vanuatu and New Caledonia also reported rising sea levels, before a region-wide tsunami alert was lifted. Locals in the Solomons capital Honiara, 580 kilometres from the epicentre, said earlier the quake was not felt there but some villages had been destroyed, according to a hospital director.“The information we are getting is that some villages west and south of Lata along the coast have been destroyed, although we cannot confirm this yet,” the director at Lata Hospital said. Richard Dapo, a school principal on an island near Santa Cruz, said he lives inland but has been fielding calls from families on the coast whose homes have been damaged by the waves.“I try to tell the people living on the coastline,‘Move inland, find a higher place. Make sure to keep away from the sea. Watch out for waves,”’ he said. He said he’d heard the waves had swamped some smaller islands, although he was not aware of any deaths or serious injuries at this point. He said it was difficult to contact people because cell phone coverage is patchy in the region. In the Solomons capital of Honiara, tsunami warnings prompted residents to flee for higher ground, while ships also moved to open water to avoid potential waves.“People are still standing on the hills outside of Honiara just looking out over the water, trying to observe if there is a wave coming in,” Mr Herming said earlier. The tsunami warnings prompted warnings in nations as far away as Fiji for residents to evacuate to higher ground. Sirens were heard in Fiji while the alert remained in place, locals said.“Chaos in the streets of Suva as everyone tries to avoid the tsunami!!” tweeted Ratu Nemani Tebana from the Fiji capital Suva. The tsunami warning was initially issued for the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, Nauru, Papua New Guinea, Tuvalu, New Caledonia, Kosrae, Fiji, Kiribati, and Wallis and Futuna. New Zealand was also on guard but monitors said there was no threat to Australia. The tsunami warnings were later cancelled.-Australian

Well you guys are getting buried in snow same as Europe last year and we are supposed to keep accepting this as NORMAL weather in part of the cycle. Pole shifts might effect some things but not the weather. All this crap we are dealing with right now getting extreme winters and summers were all part of the modeling with climate change which those on the right refuse to acknowledge. Point is we could have done something about it and now it's too damn late. Its advanced well beyond the worst modeling predictions before man's action might have addressed it.

The pole shift does indeed effect the weather. it changes the jetstream. The jet stream indeed drives the weather. Your totally wrong to believe this is caused by mans puny activities. Or to think man could have prevented or mitigated it. Nostradmus predicted it. The bible predicted it. edgar cayce predicted it. the pole shifted during the time of the EXIDOUS. Wake up quit being a sheeple. Admit you where and likely still are gullible and believed in the Prophet Al Gore and the glowbull warming greenies. And here in NE arkansas we are having a typical feburary. However we are having mild earthquakes & unexplaned booming noises . The New Madrid might go off. I prefer to embrace the new adventure.

Michigan Republican governor Snyder backs Medicaid expansion

By Mary Wisniewski

Wed Feb 6, 2013

(Reuters)- Michigan Governor Rick Snyder on Wednesday endorsed an expansion of health coverage for the poor under President Barack Obama's reform law, joining five other Republican governors who have agreed to widen the Medicaid program in their states.

Snyder made his announcement at a hospital in the state capitol of Lansing.

"This makes sense for the physical and fiscal health of Michigan," Snyder said in a statement.

He said the move will add 320,000 state residents in the first year, and more than 470,000 by 2021, cutting the number of Michigan uninsured almost in half.

Snyder joins fellow Republican Governor John Kasich of Ohio, who made his Medicaid expansion announcement on Monday. The Republican governors of Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico and North Dakota had previously said they would expand the program.

It also follows new assurances that the Obama administration will defend federal funding for the program in upcoming deficit reduction talks with Congress.

Snyder is expected to unveil his budget for fiscal 2014, including the Medicaid program changes, on Thursday.

Obama's Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act calls on states to expand Medicaid to most Americans earning up to 133 percent of the poverty line. The expansion would revolutionize the program, which in many states is now limited mainly to children, pregnant women and the very old. Under the reform law, Washington would fund more than 90 percent of the expansion.

Analysts say pressure on states from local healthcare industries, combined with a new Republican interest in appealing to minority voters in the wake of Obama's re-election, has nudged some governors toward acceptance.

Ron Pollack of Families USA, a Washington-based consumer healthcare advocacy group, said the decision by Michigan and Ohio's governors will provided health coverage to "well over a million uninsured people."

"It is also indicative of an inevitable movement that will ultimately result in Medicaid expansions in all states across the country," Pollack said.

The Medicaid expansion is intended to bring 16 million uninsured people into the $2.8 trillion U.S. healthcare system. But many states, which would pay less than 10 percent of the cost under the law, have balked at the potential budget impact or rejected the prospect of participating in a new government program.

Since Obama's re-election, at least 10 governors have chosen to support the Medicaid expansion, including six Republican governors. Five Republicans have chosen to oppose it.

Another 14 governors, 12 Republicans and two Democrats, remain undecided, but experts say many are likely to reach decisions in the coming weeks as they propose new budgets for the fiscal year beginning July 1.

Snyder was joined at the announcement by business, consumer and human service groups, including the Michigan Health & Hospital Association and the state's Small Business Association.

Snyder said more than $20 billion will come into Michigan through 2023 by leveraging federal funds made available through the Affordable Care Act, and that the state's General Fund will see $1.2 billion in savings through 2020.

"The bottom line is that expanding eligibility for coverage in the state's Medicaid Program will save lives, save money and lead to a healthier population," said Kim Sibilsky, executive director of the Michigan Primary Care Association.

Michigan House Speaker Jase Bolger, a Republican, said in a statement he remained "cautious and concerned" on behalf of taxpayers regarding the Medicaid expansion.

"The federal government has a history of working with states to start long-term programs while providing only short-term funding, and then sticking state taxpayers with the future financial liability that program creates," Bolger said.

A growing number of scientists are starting to worry that it is the magnetic pole shift that seems to be underway that is the real culprit behind climate change. Not man made air pollution, not the sun, not the underground volcanic activity heating up the oceans, but the slow beginning of a pole shift that has been thought to destroy entire civilizations in the past and be one major factor in mass extinctions. NASA recently discovered and released information about a major breach in the earth’s magnetic field.

This breach in the earth/s magnetic field alone, in that it is allowing solar winds to enter the earths atmosphere, is sufficient to really mess up the weather. Not only is this accelerating magnetic pole shift messing up the weather it is having major effects on geopolitics. These magnetic shifts are not only capable of causing massive global super storms, but can cause certain societies, cultures and whole countries to collapse, even go to war with one another.

All yet remains to be seen, but the magnetic reversal of the earth’s poles seems to be rapidly increasing and IS affecting world weather patterns. The real question is how bad will things get before it all settles backdown to a “new normal?” At one time in history it was thought the North Pole was in the area that is now known as Hudson Bay. If the Hudson Bay area was the last locatoin of the North Pole, where will it go next? And how bad will global super storms and climate change get before it is over? And can we stop blaming each other for causing this and work together to survive it and keep civilization in tact?

Stories like this are only remarkable because of the Herculean effort the Republicans undertook to try and stop HCR. It's going to become another "Third Rail" like Social Security - the opposition to it is going to continue to look more and more ridiculous.

Social security is a Ponzi scheme thats going broke. The health care is causing job losses as many employers reduce their workforce to less than 50 full time employees. health care act is just another parasitic burden on the productive makers.

New Fears Over Major Cataclysmic Event As Earth Reels From Nine Major Quakes In 5 Days
February 4, 2013 7 Year Tribulation, Earthquakes, Hurricanes, Tsunamis
An earthquake of magnitude 6.7 struck off the coast of the Solomon Islands (Santa Cruz) in the Pacific Ocean, the U.S. Geological Survey said on Friday.
The quake was later downgraded by the USGS to a 6.3 magnitude event. The depth of the quake was 10 km (6.2 miles) and the epicenter was 68 km southwest of Lata. But the real issue is that 9 major quakes have struck in a period of 5 days..and Scientists are running scared to death of the catastrophic consequences that may soon be unleashed on this planet.
The quake hit at 9:16 a.m. local time on Saturday. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center did not immediately issue any alerts on its website. This quake was underscored by an even stronger 6.9 magnitude earthquake that just struck the Hokkaido region of East Japan on February 2nd.
This is the ninth major earthquake to strike the planet in the last five days. The present cluster of earthquakes began with a 6.0 event in Eastern Kazakhstan on January 28th, following a full moon on January 27, 2013.
Perhaps, it may not be readily apparent to most that our planet appears to now be inching towards the spectrum of some major cataclysmic event.
This approaching black swan occurrence is characterized by the gradual escalation of geological activity of a violent seismic and volcanic nature.
44 volcanic eruptive events have already been recorded for the month of January; where there was only 77 chronicled for the entire year of 2012.
The on-going volcanic activity in Kamchatka also provides compelling testament that massive changes are now taking place within the planet’s interior. No less than 4 volcanoes on the Far Eastern peninsula of Kamchatka are erupting simultaneous, though all the volcanoes lie in relative close proximity to each other (with a 110 km radius).
Even more interesting, the magma flow fueling each volcanic system appears to emanting from a separate magma source. However, what’s even more disconcerting is the fact that Plosky Tolbachik volcano awakened from 40 years of dormancy and is now ejecting massive rivers of lava across the landscape of Kamchatka.
Russian scientists attest this is the first time rivers of lava have ever flowed from one of the Kamchatka volcanoes during the Holocene period. Large-scale protracted effusive eruptions, such as these, are generally fueled by a deep magma source.
Most originate from a magma plume from deep inside the planet’s crust. Both of the planet’s volcanoes, which have had large effusive eruptions in the past, Kileaua (Hawaii) and Mount Etna (Italy) both lie over magma plumes- Kamchatka’s Plosky Tolbchik volcano does not.
Kamchatka peninsula, which has a total land mass that is slightly larger than Germany, is one of the most active parts of the infamous “Ring of Fire,” the zone of volcanic and seismic activity that encircles the Pacific Ocean.
Three tectonic plates — the North American Plate, the Okhotsk Plate, and the Pacific Plate — collide beneath Kamchatka, with the peninsula’s coastal range boasting 30 active volcanoes. The crust is thinning here, and is becoming more fractured, as seismic stresses increase.
Ominous change in the South Pacific: The Santa Cruz seismic swarms are unfolding against an even more complex geological backdrop. Consequently, the effects of this massive seismic upheaval signals ominous change for the entire Pacific basin.
To the west, the Indo-Australian plate is breaking up, after the largest strike-slip earthquakes ever recorded, struck off the coast of Indonesia in April of 2012. The Solomon Sea Plate, to the east, is an oceanic crustal plate remnant, which is disappearing into two subduction zones, one to its north, the other on its southwest margin.

To the west, the Indo-Australian plate is breaking up, after the largest strike-slip earthquakes ever recorded, struck off the coast of Indonesia in April of 2012. The Solomon Sea Plate, to the east, is an oceanic crustal plate remnant, which is disappearing into two subduction zones, one to its north, the other on its southwest margin.

Its southeast margin runs along the Woodlark Rise, undefined compressive zone, which may be a transform fault marking the boundary with the adjoining Woodlark Plate. The northern subduction zone is located where the Solomon Plate is diving below the South Bismarck Plate to the northwest and the Pacific Plate to the northeast.

The northwest part of the subduction zone is called the New Britain Subduction Zone. New Britain in Papua New Guinea is the volcanic island formed from this collision and resulting volcanism.

The southwestern subduction zone is where the Solomon Pate is diving below the Indo-Australian Plate. According to scientists, the Indo-Australian plate may in the process of breaking up, and this heightened activity around the Santa Cruz Islands is placing additional pressures on a tectonic plate, already exhibiting strains of fracturing.

We should continue to watch the region of Indonesia for massive changes to come, including very large-scale volcanic eruptions. Nearly all of the planet’s current 15 tectonic plates, and in some cases, sub-plates and volcanic arcs are heavily stressed by the recent violent mobility of tectonic plates shaken by earthquakes.

I’ve never quite seen a pattern this fraught with potential hazards or as heavily laden with seismic tension. The planet is now experiencing a major geological crisis, and it’s showing some indication of worsening.

We are having boat loads of illegals arriving every day without 200 million Indonesians knocking on our door. All I know with climate changing the way it is, it is not safe to buy near the coast or the tropic zones anymore. Either way your house is bound to be blown over or under water. Would you believe the insurance companies now want over $5000 a year to insure homes in the northern states that have been dumped on with weather the past few years. I told you this would happen.

I dont believe folks who build in low lying flood prone areas should be able to buy insurance anyway. They should build on high ground or build a house boat on a barge.
