Bruce Japsen: Wellpoint Says ObamaCare Enrollment Ahead Of Expectations

Despite problems with the rollout of insurance coverage under the Affordable Care Act, Wellpoint (WLP) Inc., one of the nation’s largest insurers, said enrollment in health plans it operates under the new health law is ahead of expectations. Wellpoint, which operates Blue Cross and Blue Shield plans across the country, said it expects to add more than one million new customers this year from across its private health plan business as well as insurance it offers to Americans covered by government programs like the expanded Medicaid insurance for the poor.

“We are encouraged by the sizable growth opportunities,” said Wellpoint chief executive Joe Swedish in an hour-long conference call with Wall Street analysts and investors. Of the half million new members Wellpoint said that have applied for coverage so far, more than 80 percent came through public exchanges and two-thirds of those were “subsidy eligible.” Under the law, those eligible can get subsidies of up to $5,000 to buy coverage on government run marketplaces known as exchanges.

Rebecca Shabad: More Uninsured Plan To Get Health Insurance Through Exchanges

More than half of people who lack health insurance in the United States say they plan to get it through a government exchange, a Gallup poll released Thursday found. According to the poll, 56 percent of the uninsured plan to get health insurance through ObamaCare.

Among the entire public, 53 percent also plan to get health insurance. Thirty-eight percent, on the other hand, say they’re willing to pay a tax penalty. Uninsured people who fail to enroll in ObamaCare by the end of March will have to face that fine.

NYT: Ukrainian President Goes On Sick Leave

Viktor F. Yanukovych, the president of Ukraine, went on sick leave on Thursday, leaving negotiated efforts to resolve the country’s political crisis uncompleted. A statement on the president’s website said Mr. Yanukovych is taking time off because of a respiratory illness and fever, and offered no indication of how long he was expected to be absent. The statement cited a deputy director of the presidential administration responsible for medical affairs. Mr. Yanukovych has faced pressure from Russia to take a harder line with protesters opposing his government rather than continue negotiations that could cede power to pro-Western members of the opposition.

Mr. Yanukovych went on sick leave before signing into law the repeal of harsh new rules against freedom of assembly and freedom of speech that was passed in Parliament with support from the pro-government party on Tuesday in a significant concession to the opposition but means little unless it is signed. Overnight Wednesday, two protesters were brought to a hospital with gunshot wounds and one died, Aleksei Davidenko, an opposition member of the Kiev City Council, told Ukrainian news websites. The death brings to four the number of protesters shot to death in recent days, all on Hrushevskovo Street, the site of a standoff with police.

Carolyn Edgar: The Right’s Single-Mom Mistake: Why Their Latest Attacks Are Clueless And Doomed

Conservatives are now attempting to discredit Davis’s up-by-her-bootstraps story by questioning the period Davis spent as a single mother between her first and second marriages, and by casting her as a bad mother for supposedly putting her career before her children. These efforts rightly have been derided as sexist. But while the broadsides at Davis are rapidly approaching the point of parody, they also illustrate why Republicans have had such a hard time attracting unmarried women voters in recent elections. Given the GOP’s growing unpopularity with this group, attacking Davis’ single mother story looks like a losing strategy.

That Davis has made single motherhood such a prominent part of her story is significant because Davis doesn’t fit the conservative stereotype of a single mother. Conservatives often use “single mothers” as code for the more noxious term “welfare queen,” to evoke the specter of young, uneducated black women dependent on handouts from their “Uncle Sugar.” Davis puts a different face on single motherhood – a face that more closely resembles what single motherhood in America actually looks like.

Republicans maintain strong support among married white women, but unmarried women voters of all races and married women of color tend to vote Democrat. The reelection of President Obama in 2012 and the election of Terry McAuliffe as governor of Virginia in 2013 both were fueled by strong support among unmarried women and women of color, married and unmarried. Demonizing unmarried women and single mothers as sluts who want handouts may keep the GOP’s conservative base happy, but it is not a viable strategy for attracting them to the Republican Party.

The People’s View: Dear Professional Left, Attacking The NSA While Giving Corporate Big Data A Pass Is NOT Progressive

I want to focus on a rather dumbfounding notion that the Left keeps convincing itself is true: that it is more dangerous for the government to have metadata than for private companies to have it because only the government is empowered to strip one of one’s liberty. Not only is this patently and provably false in today’s interconnected world, the reverse is closer to the truth. Let me explain. The same liberals who argue that Google having your information and the NSA having your information isn’t the same because Google doesn’t have the ability to physically harm you will turn right around and and walk picket lines against coal mines owned by private corporations that do physically harm people.

And by people, we aren’t even talking about just their employees but communities. Liberals protest fracking because of the possibility of corporations harming people, not the government. Liberals stand up for Americans’ right to be able to sue corporations for physical harm they have caused – whether through medical malpractice, unsafe food or water, mistreatment of employees or even mistreatment of prisoners. That corporations cannot do physical harm to people or rob them of their liberties has always been a bad joke. Health insurance companies, banks, credit card companies, payday lenders all have (or until recently have had) the power to strip an individual of their dignity, freedom and even life with zero consequence.

Reuters: Households, Trade Keep U.S. Economy Humming In Fourth Quarter

Robust household spending and strong exports kept the U.S. economy on solid ground in the fourth quarter, but stagnant wages could chip away some of the momentum in early 2014. Gross domestic product grew at a 3.2 percent annual rate, the Commerce Department said on Thursday, in line with economists’ expectations. While that was a slowdown from the third-quarter’s brisk 4.1 percent pace, it was a far stronger performance than anticipated earlier in the quarter.

Earlier in the quarter many economists were expecting a growth pace below 2 percent given that an inventory surge accounted for much of the increase in the July-September period. Growth over the second half of the year come in at a 3.7 percent pace, up sharply from 1.8 percent in the first six months of the year. It was the biggest half-year increase since the second half of 2003.

Krista Daly: Affordable Care Act Makes Impact On Imperial County Residents, Hospitals And Clinics

A brain tumor, a pre-existing medical condition to insurance companies, had prevented El Centro resident Eric Villanueva from qualifying for health coverage. Thirty-three-year-old Villanueva had been without health insurance for about eight years until the Affordable Care Act took effect for him Jan. 1. “I’m so happy now that I have insurance,” he said. “I can finally look at my family and tell them everything will be all right. I don’t have to worry about how I’m going to pay. That cloud is gone and there’s no more ‘what ifs.’ I’m covered.”

The Affordable Care Act, a plan for universal health care in the United States, is being implemented through Covered California for Imperial Valley residents and all Californians. The health plan, also known as Obamacare, has expanded coverage to people like Villanueva who were not previously eligible. This includes someone with a pre-existing medical condition, low-income individuals and families whose incomes are between 100 percent and 400 percent of the federal poverty level, plus an expansion of Medi-Cal- and Medicaid-eligible persons.

      January 30, 2014 at 11:08 am

      RELIGION, and racial insecurity. Very strong obstacles to overcome in order to convince them to change their vote. And frankly, those two items are probably the strongest factors in the white men vote too.

      What doesn’t help is that a great portion of voters don’t know a lot about the different economic policies of the two parties. They’re not aware of the charts demonstrating that republicans are the ones who create more debt. They don’t know that red states are the ones with the worst economic indicators. And on and on…

      No, they vote on their feelings, their emotions, their fears, their prejudices. And this is hard to counter. President Obama knows this. I’m convinced it’s the main reason he is so careful in his rhetoric. Why he always tries to unite people, and to reassure them.

      The President hasn’t succeeded much in “switching votes” , but he’s succeeding in something more important: he is changing the conversations. Health care, income inequality, clean energy, diplomacy over war, etc.

      Polls on party preference don’t tell the whole story. Polls about ISSUES are saying a lot.

      I once read somewhere that C-SPAN is traditionally omitted from Nielsen ratings for all events because it’s a public broadcast network. Because of this, the Nielsen ratings can be rather misleading – particularly for events like SOTU which are also aired and viewed on CSPAN in by millions. For sitcoms and other events like the Superbowl, Grammys, Oscars, etc., which are only showed on one cable TV station, they are more accurate.

        Thanks HF2 I didn’t know this. I always watch on C-Span because I cannot stand the commentary on any of those other stations. I guess in the future I’ll have to mute the sound. It would be interesting to know just how many of the President’s supporters watched it like I did??

    FACTS ARE STUBBORN THINGS.

    President Barack Obama’s State of the Union Address

    —————————————————

    Tonight, this chamber speaks with one voice to the people we represent: it is you, our citizens, who make the state of our union strong.

    Here are the results of your efforts: The lowest unemployment rate in over five years. A rebounding housing market. A manufacturing sector that’s adding jobs for the first time since the 1990s. More oil produced at home than we buy from the rest of the world – the first time that’s happened in nearly twenty years. Our deficits – cut by more than half. And for the first time in over a decade, business leaders around the world have declared that China is no longer the world’s number one place to invest; America is.

    That’s why I believe this can be a breakthrough year for America. After five years of grit and determined effort, the United States is better-positioned for the 21st century than any other nation on Earth.

    The question for everyone in this chamber, running through every decision we make this year, is whether we are going to help or hinder this progress.

    GOP shutdown steps on economic growth

    By Steve Benen

    ——————————-

    The congressional Republicans’ government shutdown, for example, shaved about 0.3% from the overall total. That’s a difference, in other words, between 3.2% growth and 3.5% growth. It’s still not clear exactly why GOP lawmakers did this, or what they hoped to accomplish, but there’s evidence now that the gambit took a toll on the economy.
    .
    .
    And yet, GOP lawmakers continue to insist that it’s the White House’s policies that are standing in the way of a more robust economy.

    This R & S is a news that matters round-up and I am so grateful for it. If only the MSM did 1/2 the job Chips and Nerdy Wonka do here we would have a saner smarter country.

    Like a lot of posters here I find the attempt to minimize POTUS maddening. Maybe TV viewing of the SOTU was down a fraction, but I am pretty sure that actual viewership on all the available platforms is way way UP!!

    MFs are using the same tactics in NYC with Mayor deBlasio mainly by claiming his 73% victory wasn’t really so great because voting numbers fell. Give me a break.

        I believe CA Rep.Diane Watson took Karen Bass under her tutelage. And I feel (IMO) that CA Rep. Karen Bass is doing a great job representing the best interest for her district (where I live) and supporting the President.

      Bummer, Congressman Henry Waxman is brilliant. He is one of my favorites — a real pit bull. He does not play. I used to love to watch his hearings when he was head of the Government Oversight and Reform Committee. It is a tragedy that Darryl Issa is now the chairman. Issa has made a mockery of the committee by essentially conducting witch hunts and holding partisan show trials around the country. Waxman will be sorely missed.

The number of hits on this blog is reassuring that the love and fellowship initially inspired by our President and his family is shared and encouraged here and around the world. You have made a home in cyberspace where even lurkers feel at home. I also lit a candle (first time) for GoBrooklyn and share in the prayers for my family here.
    President Obama is God’s gift to us for these times, and this site is proof that God really wants us to get this point. Thank you, all who comment here, for being the confirmation of His presence in our daily lives. I love you more than words can say.

    Good Morning TOD family

    I wanted to report in on the SOTU events in our Sonoma Chapter. We had 4 events, it went really well. We all loved the President’s speech.

    After the speech, I had a very special honor. SOTU hosts had a call with Jon Carson, Executive Director of OFA. He gave a briefing on what we would be doing in the months ahead and then he spoke to several Chapter Leaders. I was fortunate enough to be interviewed. Here is a summary of my remarks.

    “Jon our team is so energized by the President’s remarks. For the past few months we have been spreading the word about the Health Care Law and it has been amazing. After working for years to see health care reform we are finally at the “fun part” where we get to give folks information about signing up. This is a truly life changing event for our neighbors who have ended up crying with relief and telling us “God Bless”.

    The other exciting part of our organizing has involved the Spring Fellows who have held SOTU parties in Arcata, Fort Bragg, Santa Rosa and Petaluma. Thanks to their energy we will be able to expand our effectiveness.

    At the speech tonight the President described the young soldier who refused to quit after being injured in Afghanistan, he said America doesn’t quit. Well that is our team mantra, as long as the President keeps fighting our Sonoma OFA will keep fighting to.”

    The only reason I was asked to speak last night is the dedication of our team and the willingness of our Fellows to jump right in and start organizing their communities. I am very lucky to be working with such a great group.

    Here is a video made by the volunteer from Fort Bragg – he is amazing

    Please give it a watch, he only has 4 views to date

    They also tweeted about the fact that I was on the phone. I will try and post that tweet below (fingers crossed)

    I have dreamed of strangling Thom Hartmann the last two days ( he does a segment on FSTV, which I only watch for Stephanie Miller in the mornings): yesterday it was the evil NSA spying through Google games. He even said that you are giving Google tons of personal information to play these games, but it’s not YOUR fault or Google’s fault for demanding this info – just the evil NSA for ‘spying’. Explain to me how it’s spying if you freely give up this information to a corporation?!?!

    And today – let’s just say we’re lucky I didn’t throw the tee vee out the window. “The President said ‘x’ about climate change in the SOTU but didn’t say THIS. The President said ‘x’ about income inequality but didn’t say THIS”. On and on and on…..

    Literally his next ‘report’ was on how much money wind energy has saved us in this terrible winter. But any credit to PBO? NONE!!!!!! PBO, in a dizzingly short period of time, turned that industry around.
