Latest GOP Obamacare Repeal Would Reduce Insurance Coverage for ‘Millions’
The Congressional Budget Office says the new Republican bill aimed at repealing President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul would reduce health insurance coverage for “millions” of people. The nonpartisan analysts say people would lose coverage in part because of $1 trillion in cuts through 2026 in Medicaid. That’s the health insurance program for the poor and disabled. Others would drop policies because the bill would halt federal subsidies Obama’s law gives them. Still others would be uninsured because the measure drops the law’s tax penalty on people who don’t buy coverage. Th...

Sen. Susan Collins Won ’t Support the GOP’s Obamacare Repeal Bill
Maine Senator Susan Collins said Monday that she will vote against the Graham-Cassidy health care bill, becoming the third Republican Senator to oppose the latest effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act. “Today, we find out that there is now a fourth version of the Graham-Cassidy proposal, which is as deeply flawed as the previous iterations,” she said in a statement on Monday. “The fact that a new version of this bill was released the very week we are supposed to vote compounds the problem.” The Congressional Budget Office said Monday that the latest version of the bill would reduce insurance cove...

Obamacare Repeal Is on Life Support. These 5 Senators Could Decide Its Fate
Once again, Congress is facing a looming vote on repealing the Affordable Care Act that will be decided by a handful of key Republicans. As the Senate decides on the Graham-Cassidy bill this week, just three Republican senators would be enough to kill the bill’s chances, and doom GOP’s best chance to overturn the bill on a simple majority vote before a Sept. 30 deadline. With several Republicans expressing concern and even opposition to the bill, its future looks uncertain. On Monday, Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana put forward a revised version in an attempt to sway some ho...

Republicans Throw Money at Reluctant Senators Amid Last-Minute Obamacare Repeal Effort
WASHINGTON — Top Republicans are adding money to their staggering effort to repeal the Obama health care law and say they’re pushing toward a climactic Senate faceoff this week. Yet their path to succeeding in their last-gasp effort has grown narrower, perhaps impossible. GOP senators’ opposition to their party’s drive to scrap President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act swelled to lethal numbers Sunday. Moderate Sen. Susan Collins all but closed the door on supporting the teetering bill and conservative Sen. Ted Cruz said that “right now” he doesn’t back it. President Donal...

Climate insurance is rarely well thought out in agriculture
(Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research - UFZ) Internationally subsidised agricultural insurance is intended to protect farmers in developing countries from the effects of climate change. However, it can also lead to undesirable ecological and social side effects, as UFZ researchers and their colleagues at the University of Oregon have explained in Global Environmental Change. The article also contains recommendations for improved insurance schemes which in future should also take account of ecological and social aspects in addition to economic issues.

At the time, McCain was visiting his doctor at the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix to check out a blood clot in his eye. “As you know, doctors are interesting,” he told CBS, adding that he repeatedly told his doctors to “tell it to me straight.” It was only days after the operation that doct...

His Mexico City Apartment Block Was Built Only Months Ago. So Why Did It Collapse So Easily?
In April, Luis Resendiz was ecstatic to move into his brand new apartment in a sleek block with solar panels in a middle class neighborhood of Mexico City. The 35-year-old photographer had paid 2.2 million pesos ($125,000) for the property, a significant amount in a country with a daily minimum wage of $4. But through hard work and with the help of a hefty bank loan, he made what he thought was a worthwhile life investment. Then on Tuesday, he heard via Whatsapp that his home had been flattened by the factor 7.1 earthquake that killed at least 295 people on Sept. 19. His life was saved by the fact he was away working, but ...
