Quantifying the impact of the Affordable Care Act

Unbiased America:
(K.R.) There are many ways to quantify the impact of the Affordable Care Act on the cost of heath insurance, and it's easy to manipulate the data by comparing apples to oranges or leaving out costs, as some less scrupulous efforts have done. 
But most researchers agree that the law has bent the cost curve upwards, and quite dramatically. 
For example:
No automatic alt text available.• A Brookings 2014 study used actual data and found that "enrollment-weighted premiums in the individual health insurance market increased by 24.4% beyond what they would have had they simply followed…trends."
• S&P Global Institute found that average individual market medical costs increased substantially between 2013 and 2015, up an estimated 69%.
• 2014 insurer data shows that premiums for individual market Qualified Health Plans (QHPs), ACA-compliant plans certified to be sold on exchanges, were much higher than premiums for individual market non-QHPs, mostly plans in existence before 2014 that did not comply with the ACA.

If The Media Investigated Hillary Like They Did Watergate, We Wouldn’t Need WikiLeaks

If The Media Investigated Hillary Like They Did Watergate, We Wouldn’t Need WikiLeaks:

"Today, both publications have become willing accomplices in suppressing the same type of information they worked so tenaciously to expose all those years ago. By openly and unapologetically acting as institutional surrogates for the Clinton campaign, these same institutions, and nearly every other mainstream media outlet in America, have gone hands-off in exposing what may very well turn out to be the most explosive and damaging corruption scandal in American politics since “Tricky Dick” was reelected back in ’72."

Consumer Reports announces most, least reliable cars — with plenty of surprises

Consumer Reports announces most, least reliable cars — with plenty of surprises | ExtremeTech: "Broad trends: Asian cars rock. Buick, too
Here are some key trends that we see.
First, the Asian brands rule the rankings.
The 10 brands rank 1-2-5-6-7-8-10-11-12-13, all in the top half. The average ranking is 7.5 (out of 29).
Kia and Hyundai are 5 and 7 (and no model was ranked below average), meaning the Korean brands are as good as the Japanese brands.
Thus you can buy most any Asian car coming off lease and expect decent reliability.
Among US automakers (meaning US-headquartered), Buick was the outlier with its third place finish, same as it earned on the J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Index three-year-reliability survey.
After that, the best for GM was Chevrolet in 15th among 29 brands...
Europe’s premium automakers have often fared poorly in long-term reliability rankings.
They argued that when you a build a complex car, there may be more things that need attention.
Still, Lexus at No. 1 overall has a lot of complexity, as does Audi (No. 4) and BMW (No. 9). Note also that the two top-scoring models are Toyota and Lexus hybrids, which have additional complexity as well..."
Here are the least reliable cars. 
All are American cars except the dead-last Fiat 500L.

  • Cadillac Escalade (most unreliable of the bottom 10). Buy a Chevrolet Suburban or GMC Yukon XL instead, CR says, neither of which is saddled with the Cadillac CUE infotainment system. (Except look who’s No. 4 on the bottom 10 list below.)
  • Ford Focus.
  • Jeep Renegade
  • Chevrolet Suburban / GMC Yukon XL
  • Chrysler 200
  • Tesla Model X
  • Ram 2500 pickup
  • Chevrolet Tahoe / GMC Yukon
  • Ford Fiesta
  • Fiat 500L

Do your homework!-----What You Should Know About the Democratic Party Platform

What You Should Know About the Democratic Party Platform
"During the recent Democratic National Convention the delegates voted to adopt their party’s platform, a document that outlines the statement of principles and policies that the party has decided it will support.

Why should Christians care about a document that few non-politicians will ever read? 
Because of the influence the two major party platforms have on public policy. 
While the platform is not binding on the presidential nominee or any other politicians, political scientists have found that over the past 30 years lawmakers in Congress tend to vote in line with their party’s platform: 89 percent of the time for Republicans and 79 percent of the time for Democrats. 
For this reason we should be aware of what is proposed in these documents and how they may affect the welfare of our nation (Jeremiah 29:7).
This article will provide, without commentary, an outline of the Democratic platform as it relates to several social issues. 
Every statement is either a direct quote or a summary of the platform’s position. 
(Last week, we examined the GOP party’s platform and stance on these and related issues.)

...Criminal Justice Reform

...Opposes racial profiling that targets individuals solely on the basis of race, religion, ethnicity, or national origin.
Supports a requirement to make the Department of Justice investigate all “questionable or suspicious police-involved shootings.”
...Supports removing barriers to help formerly incarcerated individuals successfully re-enter society by “banning the box” (persuading employers to remove from their hiring applications the check box that asks if applicants have a criminal record). 

Supports executive action to “ban the box for federal employers and contractors, so applicants have an opportunity to demonstrate their qualifications before being asked about their criminal records.”
Supports expanding re-entry programs, and restoring voting rights for felons.
Supports, whenever possible, prioritizing prevention and treatment over incarceration when tackling addiction and substance use disorder.
...Supports abolishing the death penalty.

Discrimination and Racial Issues

Supports ending discrimination on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, language, religion, gender, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability.
Supports promoting “racial justice through fair, just, and equitable governing of all public-serving institutions and in the formation of public policy.”
Supports removing the Confederate battle flag from public properties, “recognizing that it is a symbol of our nation's racist past that has no place in our present or our future.”
Calls for a “societal transformation to make it clear that black lives matter and that there is no place for racism in our country.”
Supports making community college free for all students.
...Supports refinancing of current student loan debt.
MUCH more here.

UNDERCOVER VIDEO: Hillary Clinton Personally Directed Plan to Incite of Violence at Trump Rallies | National Review

UNDERCOVER VIDEO: Hillary Clinton Personally Directed Plan to Incite of Violence at Trump Rallies | National Review:

"Project Veritas’s most recent undercover video sting has already resulted in firings (Scott Foval of Democracy Partners) and caused one of Hillary Clinton’s key operatives — Robert Creamer – to resign from the campaign. The videos show evidence that Democratic operatives worked directly with the DNC to incite violence at Donald Trump rallies this year. "

The Bully Party

Conservative Political Cartoons Daily - Timeline:
The Bully Party-By Scott Adams
I’ve been trying to figure out what common trait binds Clinton supporters together.
As far as I can tell, the most unifying characteristic is a willingness to bully in all its forms.
  • If you have a Trump sign in your lawn, they will steal it.
  • If you have a Trump bumper sticker, they will deface your car.
  • If you speak of Trump at work you could get fired

On social media, almost every message I get from a Clinton supporter is a bullying type of message.
  • They insult. 
  • They try to shame. 
  • They label. 
  • And obviously they threaten my livelihood.
  • We know from Project Veritas that Clinton supporters tried to incite violence at Trump rallies. 

The media downplays it.
We also know Clinton’s side hired paid trolls to bully online.
You don’t hear much about that.
Yesterday, by no coincidence, Huffington Post, Salon, and Daily Kos all published similar-sounding hit pieces on me, presumably to lower my influence.
(That reason, plus jealousy, are the only reasons writers write about other writers.)
Joe Biden said he wanted to take Trump behind the bleachers and beat him up. 
No one on Clinton’s side disavowed that call to violence because, I assume, they consider it justified hyperbole.
Team Clinton has succeeded in perpetuating one of the greatest evils I have seen in my lifetime.
Her side has branded Trump supporters (40%+ of voters) as Nazis, sexists, homophobes, racists, and a few other fighting words.
...The Clinton message is that some Americans are good people and the other 40% are some form of deplorables, deserving of shame, vandalism, punishing taxation, and violence.
She has literally turned Americans on each other.
It is hard for me to imagine a worse thing for a presidential candidate to do.
I’ll say that again.
As far as I can tell, the worst thing a presidential candidate can do is turn Americans against each other.
Clinton is doing that, intentionally.

Public university allows ‘viewpoint-based’ discrimination for unpopular speech, group claims

Public university allows ‘viewpoint-based’ discrimination for unpopular speech, group claims - The College Fix:
Letting police decide what ‘solicitation’ means in any given situation
Several weeks after a Fairmont State University police officer told Dustin Winski to stop wearing a sign reading “Do U think the NSA should spy on your phone,” the student still doesn’t know whether he’ll get in trouble if he tries to collect petition signatures again.
Acting on behalf of Winski, the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education told the public university in West Virginia earlier this month that it “must immediately revise its policies and practices.”
FSU’s solicitation policy gives police officers “broad discretion” to decide when students are violating campus rules and “unconstitutionally burdens” student speech, according to FIRE.
You ‘freaked out’ students, so knock it off
Image result for first they came for the jewsBracing for a day of canvassing and promoting liberty, Winski headed out Aug. 30 to collect signatures and gauge interest in starting a Young Americans for Liberty (YAL) chapter, accompanied by Abe Alassaf, a field representative for the conservative Leadership Institute.
Inside Falcon Hall, FSU was hosting its annual student organization fair. Outside, Winsky didn’t last an hour before campus police told him and Alassaf to stop.
“While campus security seemed sympathetic to his efforts, they explained that the student fair activities are the discretion of the police, and Winsky was too ‘outgoing’ in his efforts to collect signatures,” YAL Director of Communications Matthew Boyer said in a statement.
...Asked if requesting signups is considered soliciting, Philyaw recommended that Winski reserve a table and set it up outside, right where they had been standing.
“I see where you are coming from, it is out-of-the-box marketing but it comes across to campus police as soliciting because you are not doing it the way most people would do it with a table,” said Philyaw, as seen in a video also taken by Alassaf...."

Insurers use California's assisted-suicide law to deny treatment for terminal patients

Insurers use California's assisted-suicide law to deny treatment for terminal patients:
"About one-year ago, Gov. Jerry Brown signed the state’s assisted-suicide bill into law. 
It fully went into effect this June, with the opening of the first clinic
While there is no data on the number of California assisted-suicides, Oregon recorded over 130 last year as part of their legalized physician-assisted death program.
Now, one young mother says her insurance company denied her coverage for chemotherapy treatment after originally agreeing to provide the fiscal support for it, but indicated it would be willing to pay for assisted suicide instead.
Stephanie Packer, a wife and mother of four who was diagnosed with a terminal form of scleroderma, said her insurance company initially indicated it would pay for her to switch to a different chemotherapy drug at the recommendation of her doctors.
…But shortly after California’s End of Life Option Act, which authorizes physicians to diagnose a life-ending dose of medication to patients with a prognosis of six months or less to live, went into effect, Ms. Packer’s insurance company had a change of heart.
“And when the law was passed, it was a week later I received a letter in the mail saying they were going to deny coverage for the chemotherapy that we were asking for,” Ms. Packer said.
She said she called her insurance company to find out why her coverage had been denied. On the call, she also asked whether suicide pills were covered under her plan.
“And she says, ‘Yes, we do provide that to our patients, and you would only have to pay $1.20 for the medication,’” Ms. Packer said.
Packer attends meetings with others suffering from terminal illnesses. 
She indicates that the tone of those meetings have changed since the California assisted-suicide law was enacted.
“As soon as this law was passed – and you see it everywhere, when these laws are passed – patients fighting for a longer life end up getting denied treatment, because this will always be the cheapest option.”
Packer attends a support group for terminally ill patients. She said legally sanctioned suicide has changed the tone of the meetings, which used to be “positive and encouraging.” With patients under new societal pressure to kill themselves, she said meetings “became negative, and it started consuming people. And then they said, ‘You know what? I wish I could just end it.'”
Concerned about the enormous potential for abuse, a the national organization, Patients Rights Action Fund, has created a website for patients like Packer..."

Fox News Just Landed A Brutal, Clean Hit On Hillary Clinton's Campaign | Huffington Post:

"In the beforetime, in the long, long ago of 2015, a woman named Hillary Clinton was about to launch her campaign for president. She was also trying really hard to secure $12 million for her family’s charitable foundation from King Mohammed VI of Morocco. And her campaign was freaking out about it.

Campaign manager Robby Mook and longtime Clinton confidant John Podesta thought the deal ― in which Clinton had committed to speak at an event for the king on the condition of his $12 million donation ― would look bad. Clinton aide Huma Abedin tried to explain that it was simply too late to back out."

Democratic Operative Robert Creamer Used Terror to Wage War on Honesty | Observer

Democratic Operative Robert Creamer Used Terror to Wage War on Honesty | Observer
"WHERE’S THE MEDIA OUTRAGE?": Democrat operative Robert Creamer ran a political terror operation — with the goal of influencing the 2016 election. (Instapundit)
"Let’s be blunt: Democratic Party operative Robert Creamer used terror to wage war on honesty. 
Until forced to resign his post as a “consultant” with a Democratic Party-aligned organization named Americans United for Change, Creamer ran what amounts to a domestic U.S. political terror and propaganda operation dedicated to undermining the 2016 U.S. presidential election—“rigging the election,” to use the current term.
Yes, Creamer’s operation uses terror—and three investigative videos recently released by Project Veritas contain information supporting my assessment.
Image result for hitler brown shirts voting(“Rigging The Election,” Part OnePart Two and Part Three, released October 24).
Creamer resigned as an official consultant because Part One and Part Two exposed him. His operation, however, remains active and continues to do damage. 
The election rigging scheme he commanded relies on street thuggery. 
That means physical fear—terror—is a core component of Americans United for Change’s crooked enterprise. 
Street thuggery is very low-level terrorism, but it is a type of terrorism nonetheless and it is wrong to call it otherwise. 
Hardboy muscle, bottles and two by fours are street thuggery’s kinetics. 
Bottles and baseball bats are not Al Qaeda’s high explosives—but they incite fear and when they crack heads they cause casualties. 
People bleed. 
Street thuggery as an arm of politics is violent, criminalized politics on an ugly downward slope to much worse, the worse including lynchings and pogroms. 
If you don’t think street thuggery is terror then consider Kristalnacht..."

Free-tuition activists stoked over arrests for blocking Michigan Ave:
"Two University of Chicago students were arrested Monday after chaining themselves together and blocking traffic to protest for free college tuition.
The protest was part of a larger effort to sway an Art Institute of Chicago trustee who is also a major donor to Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner.
Donning caps and gowns, Johnathan Guy and Jessica Law chained themselves to two other protesters on Michigan Avenue in front of the Art Institute of Chicago until they were arrested, along with four other protesters, for impeding traffic, according to The Chicago Maroon.

Half of Detroit school board candidates had money troubles
"...Each candidate was given six weeks to respond to a questionnaire and asked to submit a résumé and a current photograph.
Not all candidates responded to those requests.
Some refused to be interviewed.
More than half of the candidates competing to lead the financially fragile Detroit public school district have filed for bankruptcy, or have had a foreclosure or an eviction, or have lost a lawsuit over unpaid bills, a local media partnership investigation shows.
The stakes for the Detroit Public Schools Community District are high.
Leaders statewide will be watching the Nov. 8 election closely because, just five months ago, the Legislature approved a historic $617-million financial restructuring plan for the district, which was on the verge of running out of money.
The election comes as Detroit emerges from the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history.
Many leaders insist that a strong public school system is imperative to the city's future.
Voters will face an exhausting list of 63 candidates when they go to the polls, and other than small forums, they have had little opportunity to meet the candidates.

Descent into Evil :: SteynOnline

Descent into Evil :: SteynOnline:
"Earlier this year, in the Munk Debate on the "refugee" crisis in Europe, I touched on the epidemic of child gang-rape on the Continent and observed that "migrant rights now trump children's rights":
"Migrant rights now trump children's rights." Hold that thought:
AN IRAQI asylum seeker who confessed to raping a 10-year-old boy in a swimming pool, claiming it was a "sexual emergency", has had his conviction overturned.
This was a Viennese rape case that received quite a bit of coverage a few months ago, mainly because of the accused's defense that he was undergoing a "sexual emergency": Like almost 80 per cent of "refugees", Amir is a fit young man. He'd scrammed out of the country leaving his wife behind and therefore had not enjoyed conjugal relations for four months. Hence the "sexual emergency":
When the youngster went to the showers, Amir A. allegedly followed him, pushed him into a toilet cubicle, and violently sexually assaulted him.
Following the attack, the accused rapist returned to the pool and was practising on the diving board when police arrived, after the 10-year-old raised the alarm with the lifeguard.
The child suffered severe anal injuries which had to be treated at a local children's hospital, and is still plagued by serious post-traumatic stress disorder.
Amir was convicted of rape and serious sexual assault of a minor and sentenced to six years. However, the Austrian Supreme Court has now quashed the verdict. But hang on, didn't the guy confess? Ah, yes, but...
The Supreme Court yesterday overturned the conviction, accepting the defence lawyer's claim that the original court had not done enough to ascertain whether or not the rapist realised the child was saying no...
You might think the screams would have been a clue there, but apparently not:
The appeal court said the initial ruling should have dealt with whether the offender thought that the victim had agreed with the sexual act, or whether he had intended to act against his will.

$1 Billion of Tax Money Thrown Into a Growing Deficit

$1 Billion of Tax Money Thrown Into a Growing Deficit [Michigan Capitol Confidential]:
"Michigan lawmakers are proud of their fiscal prudence for putting an extra $1 billion into the school employee pension fund. 
But the extra state payments have been insufficient to pay even the interest on the debt, let alone catch up on the $26.7 billion of unfunded liabilities in the system.
The state determines the amount of money the pension system needs each year based on an actuarial assessment that looks at how much is being earned in benefits by employees and how much the state still owes in pension debt.
This is different from Social Security and Medicare, where the government sets a contribution rate and leaves it unchanged.
The amount the state is supposed to pay for the school pension system has increased with the system’s growing unfunded liabilities.
The recommended inputs increased from $1 billion in 2009 to $2.2 billion in 2015, as unfunded liabilities increased from $12.0 billion to $26.7 billion.
(This is in addition to other contributions made to provide subsidized medical insurance to school retirees.)..."

Mosquitoes May Meet Their End Thanks to Marlon Brando

Mosquitoes May Meet Their End Thanks to Marlon Brando
"Every year, mosquitoes kill more humans than any other animal—including our fellow humans—due to the deadly diseases they carry, with Zika being merely the latest high-profile threat.
Now, a new multipurpose strategy could one day control mosquito disease transmission as a whole. And one of the hottest frontiers in this effort is, strangely enough, Marlon Brando’s private island.
The late actor fell in love with and secured ownership of the Polynesian atoll of Tetiaroa in 1967. Now the area is home to one of the most successful mosquito-control efforts on Earth.
In just six months, without the use of chemical pesticides or genetic modification, researchers have freed one of the atoll’s islets from Aedes polynesiensis, an invasive mosquito species that is the vector of diseases such as dengue, chikungunya, and Zika.
It’s a simple process: Introduce certain male mosquitoes that will mate with and sterilize the wild females in a particular locale, rendering their eggs nonviable.
After a few rounds of such treatment, the population is unable to reproduce itself and collapses..."

Blog: Buried Clinton impeachment documents must be devastating

Blog: Buried Clinton impeachment documents must be devastating
"In the current election environment, in which the media have determined that boorish behavior toward women in the past is the principle issue facing the Republic, attention inevitably goes to Bill Clinton, who was, after all impeached in the wake of a sexual scandal in which he perjured himself.
Kerry Pickett of The Daily Caller has an illuminating piece, in which she explains how tens of thousands of pages of impeachment documents, the contents of voluminous investigations under oath, are hidden away from the pubic eye. 
She then quotes from a radio interview on American Family Radio’s Sandy Rios show Friday with Thomas Shippers, the Democrat who was appointed chief investigative counsel for the House Judiciary Committee. I recommend reading the entire piece, but here is one important excerpt:
“When they announced they had all the materials in the room, I put my staff together and said, ‘Alright-look, if this is nothing but Monica Lewinsky—if this is nothing but sex, we’ll be out of here in a couple of weeks.Here’s what we’re gonna do. We’re gonna look at everything. We’re gonna listen to everything. We’re gonna read every word. Each one of us is going to do it.’”He added, “There were some 60,000 documents in there plus telephone calls–all kind of stuff.” (snip)Schippers says that after two weeks he sat his team of investigators down and asked each one for their reaction to what they read.“And one by one they said, ‘He’s gotta go. The man’s a perjurer. He’s been after women. He’s been doing everything in his power to shut everybody up. The man should be impeached.’ So, I went to Henry Hyde and I said, ‘They’re going to recommend an impeachment inquiry,’” Schippers said.
Oh, and by the way, Schippers makes it clear that the Senate trial of Bill Clinton was fixed."

WW2 German Ace Stumbled Across a Crippled B-17 and Escorted It Home - Now the Veterans are Friends!:

"Truly touching moments of humanity, ethics and morals are rather rare in warfare. 
The Christmas Truce of WWI was an excellent example of such humanity, as were the heroic actions of German Luftwaffe fighter pilot Franz Stigler on December 20th, 1943. 
His actions got nine men home for Christmas.
Charlie Brown of the USAAF was a Lt. flying his first mission as an aircraft commander flying a B-17, “Ye Olde Pub” on a bombing run over Bremen. Brown’s bomber occupied the especially dangerous left of the formation, sometimes called the Purple Heart Corner. 
Bremen was defended by a large contingent of fighters and well-manned flak guns. 
Two B-17s were quickly struck by heavy flak, and many went down. 
Brown’s bomber was hit at least once in the left wing. 
The crew had to shut down an engine which took them out of the formation. 
Soon they were met by about eight enemy fighters.
The B-17 was sometimes referred to as the flying porcupine and Ye Olde Pub sure lived up to the name. 
The gunners took out at least one of the fighters and as many as three, all on their own. 
The remaining fighters were still able to take the fight to the bomber, however, and bullets tore through Ye Olde Pub.
The tail gunner, Sergeant Hugh “Ecky” Eckenrode, was killed as large sections of the tail were shot apart. 
Nine more crewmen were injured, some very badly wounded. 
The electrical, hydraulic and oxygen systems were damaged. 
Brown was wounded in the shoulder, and the seriously wounded had little reprieve as the morphine syringes were frozen.
Oxygen deprivation and wounds caused Brown to black out momentarily as the bomber spiraled towards the earth. 
Brown woke up and said that his first memory was of dodging trees. 
The wounds and lack of oxygen made his memory hazy, but from the severe damage and drop in altitude, it is assumed that the German fighters figured that their target was destined to crash.
Brown was able to get some altitude just as German pilot Franz Stigler was refueling. 
Stigler saw the bomber and quickly flew up to get above and behind it. 
Stigler was a veteran pilot who would eventually serve over 400 combat missions in nearly every front of the war. 
Flying the Me 109, Stigler was one bomber kill away from earning the high honor of the Knight’s Cross.
Stigler observed the bomber, waiting for the tail gunner to raise his guns. 
Seeing the limp rear guns, he moved closer and saw the massive amount of damage. 
Bullet holes were present all over the aircraft. Stigler knew that most of the men had to be badly wounded..."
