    Hi Wonderful TOD family

    Even though I rarely post, I am continuously grateful for the resources and support I find here each day.

    I wanted to update you on our local OFA events.

    Yesterday we joined Marin OFA for a Camp OFA training. We discussed how we can help pressure Republicans in August and what we can do to implement Obamacare. e had about 40 folks – photo coming soon.

    The other big news is that I was able to go on vacation for 11 days and the team carried on without me. I am very grateful to have such a hard working team. they held phone banks, worked on a fund raiser, and created a carpool all while I was snorkeling in Kauai. How cool is that?

    I will leave you with my standard pester

    “Give OFA 2 hours a week and together we can change the world”

    If you can’t find an OFA near you send me a note whatisworking@gmail.com

    Great pro-Obamacare news story posted at the Orange site:

    You Know All Those Employers Slashing Hours Because Obamacare? Not So Much

    A new study from the Center for Economic Policy Research shows that employers are not actually rushing to cut employee hours below thirty to be under the threshold [of 30 hours].

    “Fortunately, it is possible to test whether employers are actually reducing hours below the 30-hour threshold. The Current Population Survey (CPS) provides monthly data on workers usual weekly hours. We used the CPS to compare the first four months of 2013 with the first four months of 2012. We looked at the numbers and percent of workers who reported working 26-29 hours a week.”
    That’s when they discovered that just 1 million people work those limited hours.

    “While the sanctions in the ACA may provide some marginal incentive to reduce worker hours below the 30-hour cutoff, other considerations in setting worker hours appear to be far more important.”

    More than half of Americans — 160 million people – currently get their health insurance through an employer. The law is designed to expand that number, and to help more people get health insurance through marketplaces called exchanges in each state.

    Orange site link:

    http://www.dailykos.com/story/2013/07/29/1227115/-You-Know-All-Those-Employers-Slashing-Hours-Because-Obamacare-Not-So-Much

    Link to the news story:

    http://www.nbcnews.com/health/obamacare-wont-slash-workers-hours-report-finds-6C10732487

    So when you hear a family member or co-worker casually assert that Obamacare is causing employers to cut hours, you can inform them with actual data to the contrary.

        And notice what the timing for this brilliant ‘shutdown’ idea would be, Carolyn. We are talking about late fall when people start to think about the holidays and suddenly all SS, SSI, Medicare. Medicaid and Veteran’s checks cease, and all airports are closed! Massive numbers of people at federal offices in every state go on furlough and no questions are answered about anything–no services performed, nothing. The President of the United States has only to claim prime time on all networks to deliver an oval office announcement placing the full blame on the Republicans in Congress. He then sends OFA volunteers across the country to organize phone banks, calling on voters to call their REPUBLICAN representatives to demand an end to the shutdown. The stock market plummets, pension funds shrink, businesses and corporations scream bloody murder and the world regards the whole country as a lunatic asylum. Meantime we might as well make an announcement to the world that we are open for attack since our surveillance centers have shut down. This is the Republican idea of how to run a country. They should never, ever be elected for any office anywhere in the country and they should never, ever again be given the leadership of any house of Congress.

        It’s none of your business what a business owner makes, but you perfectly illustrate the Liberal mindset. Never mind that the small business owner risked his own families money to start and run the business. And the Big Foot of Liberal Government has got their hand out for every conceivable regulation that makes it excruciatingly difficult to operate without expensive CPA’s and lawyers.
        Of course, none of that makes any difference to ******. She’s a worker, she’s waving her Lily Ledbetter Act, and by golly you better pay me more than my skill is worth because I’m an American.

American corporations are getting richer on the backs of their workers. This is why the US share market has grown so much more than other countries markets over the past few years.

      Well, past the obvious idiocy – he is being rather selective in what he likes and doesn’t like. Regulation of rates, as he supports his Pharma clients, is all of a sudden a terrible idea. Except he wanted a public option which is, of course, a regulation of rates.

      He’s lost his ever-loving mind. And his lack of disclosure as a ‘policy’ advisor for an international law firm is unacceptable. From their own web site:

      “The firm is uniquely positioned at the intersection of law, business and government, representing clients in the areas of complex litigation, corporate law, energy, environment, finance, government contracts, health care, infrastructure, insurance, intellectual property, private client services, public policy, real estate, and technology”

          From his bio at the non-lobbying lobbyist firm: “Dean’s bio at his lobbying firm boasts, “With an extensive set of contacts nationally, Governor Dean is uniquely positioned to develop partnerships between industry stakeholders and local governments.”

          July 29, 2013 at 5:11 pm

          And the more I read, the more aggravated with Dean I become:

          “The IPAB would only come into effect when Medicare’s per-enrollee spending grew faster than the average of overall price growth (measured by the Consumer Price Index) and medical price growth. That way, Medicare costs wouldn’t rise as quickly as the rest of the health-care sector, but also have some wiggle room to grow faster than the rest of the economy.
          But because of the dramatic slowdown in Medicare cost growth, the program’s chief actuary announced in April, the IPAB will not come into play at least through 2015. “Because the projected 5-year Medicare per capita growth rate does not exceed the Medicare per capita target growth rate,” he wrote, “There is no applicable savings target for implementation year 2015.”
          But you’d never know any of this reading Dr. Dean’s broadside.

      • 59 jackiegrumbacher
        July 29, 2013 at 4:32 pm

        Yep, 57. Howard Dean is out for his own benefit. He’s a lobbyist pure and simple. The good news is no one has ever listened to him in regard to legislation and no one will listen to him now. It’s a shame, though, if he misleads some who still look up to him. Bigger shame that he sold his soul.

          Benen breaks it down. http://maddowblog.msnbc.com/_news/2013/07/29/19758220-howard-deans-misplaced-ipab-fight

          There are three main areas of concern to consider. The first is political — as xpostfactoid noted, Dean “is a Senior Strategic Advisor and Independent Consultant for the Government Affairs practice at McKenna Long & Aldridge LLP.” If we translate this from inside-the-Beltway rhetoric to real English, it means Dean does lobbying work for one of the more powerful firms in D.C.

          Second, there’s ample evidence that challenges Dean’s assertions on the merits. Cost controls have a pretty good track record, and his Wall Street Journal op-ed offers no evidence to the contrary.

          And third, there’s the irony of Dean, of all people, pushing this argument in the first place. As Jonathan Cohn explained:

          More sophisticated conservatives make a more sophisticated version of the argument — namely, that IPAB might set payment policies in ways that ultimately reduce access or quality. I don’t happen to agree with that view, but it’s a legitimate argument and one that serious people can make. What’s weird is to hear it coming from Dean.

          More at the link…including the rest of what Jonathan Cohn said…

            I’ve read a lot on this today, so I can’t remember where I read that Dean’s Big Pharma clients were very pleased with his work on their behalf, reducing regulations on getting drugs to market.

            It might have been the Lee Fang article from a year ago, which is now getting the attention it deserves. Up to that point, he wasn’t even disclosing that he worked for this K-Street non-lobbying lobbyist firm.

                Harold Ford was never progressive. He was always DLC, through and through. He got worse when he left Congress and could be the corporations’ best buddy, but it was not out of character.

                Dean presented himself as progressive. “I represent the Democratic wing of the Democratic party.” Then he broadsides ACA with this less-than-truthful op-ed about a ‘problem’ that isn’t even going to need addressing at all for a few years. And his corporate taxes spiel last week was awful.

    Newser) – When a 95-year-old at a Chicago senior living community refused medical treatment, police were called in—and wound up killing the man with a bean-bag gun, the Chicago Tribune reports. Officers were called in Friday night to help a private ambulance crew deal with a “combative” resident being “involuntarily” sent for medical treatment.

    When they arrived, John Warna allegedly threatened them with a metal cane and a 2-foot metal shoehorn, and then, when he’d dropped those, a “12-inch butcher-type kitchen knife.” Police hit Warna with a Taser, which apparently failed to get him to stand down, so they shot him with the bean-bag round. He was still conscious as he was taken to the hospital. He later died of hemoperitoneum, meaning internal bleeding due to blunt-force trauma to the abdomen, caused by the bean-bag, the medical examiner ruled yesterday.

            I think she is, but she still looks so young and fit. I’m betting that’s why she took the role of Clark Kent’s mother in the Superman movie. Cause she can’t be anymore than 15 years older than Henry Cavil (Superman) right?

              She’s 48 years old.

                Henry Cavill is 30. I believe that Ma Kent was supposed to be an older woman. So I’m guessing they went for younger, but in the movie they aged her to appear older. So I guess she’s trying to older roles

                  Well, this is a good career move. She is a very intelligent actress, which you sometimes forget because she’s so darn beautiful. She wants to keep growing as an actress and keep working! Good for her.

                  Ma Kent didn’t have to be a much older woman, though. I haven’t seen the movie yet but I look forward to it.

          I forgot about Meryl, wow that would have been perfect. But oh well. I hope they expose Bill Clinton for who he really is and don’t try to sugar-coat it.

    I love and admire Arne Duncan, but sounds as though he’s had enough of “summer recess” and is looking for something to tackle!

    Vice President Joe Biden and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will meet for breakfast Tuesday morning.

    Biden’s office confirmed to Politico that the two would meet at the Naval Observatory.

    Their meeting will come less than 24 hours after Clinton met with President Barack Obama for a private lunch in the White House. A White House spokesman said it was “largely friendship that’s on the agenda” at the private meeting on Monday.

      Can’t help but think that when the cameras went away, they were served cheeseburgers and beer or something!

      That is a presidential candidate haircut for sure.

        Indeed – stylists in action – I like it (the hair – not necessarily the candidate)

          Her campaign really has to do a better job with her wardrobe this time around. She was so ‘entitled’ in 2008, she thought she could get away with that quirky (read: lack of style) look that she paraded throughout the primaries.

          I remember Randi Rhodes saying after one of her campaign stops about the suit Hillary was wearing, “Some Holiday Inn wants its bedspread back.”

            Oh dear – I didn’t hear that – sad as it is – style is needed – you only have to look at Palin as the campaign styled her – compared to before and after – no wonder the GOP had to spend $$$.

        Where is Bill? POTUS said broccoli was one of his favorite food, so maybe no cheeseburger. POTUS is getting old, he has to watch what he eat, he will be 52 Sunday August 4th. I saw where the N.Y. Post said that Bill and Hillary are fed up with Anthony Weiner.

          Looks like a lovely day in D.C., I hope POTUS and Hillary enjoy the lunch. I don’t think the GOP enjoy seeing that lunch.

      That is a great picture! I for one just see it as two former co-workers having lunch together to catch up. Nothing more to see. Move on.

    And Now TeaNN is doing a Docutainment on Mrs. Hillary Clinton? NBC announced for a miniseries and Now TeaNN is about to do theirs? Holy smokes…………these Media Corporations are bent on destroying the attention of Dems by making many so sick and tired of Hillary Clinton…….

    I am Only bringing this up for it was once again discussed up thread.

    No doubt Mrs. Clinton will be running around raising money and campaigning for Dems in 2014.

      Well, good that she was caught–I hope they throw the book at her, especially if she was responsible for the vandalism of the Lincoln Memorial. When I lived in the DC area I used to love to go to the Cathedral and the Bethlehem Chapel was my favorite. Such a beautiful place to sit, think and quietly pray. Some people just have to destroy something, as if that somehow gives them meaning. Sick.

        The article says interrogation is difficult because of a language barrier, but it doesn’t state what language she’s speaking.

      Maybe the woman is a member of Snowden family. Or someone who supports Snowden. Just guessing.

      So now that Tomorrow the VP is having breakfast with the former SoS Clinton….then what? Will the media flip out again? These people are worst than Tabloid Paparazzis…….shame on them. They look for gossips than report news about what are stopping Us from booming economically…..inequality, lack of educational system that uplifts all, etc.

        because God forbid they should do a few segments on ACA or Republican sedition. That would be too much like news.
