Weaselly Wednesday


Now that the midterms are finally over, the battle against “Medicare for All” that has been quietly waged throughout the year is poised to take center stage.

Internal strategy documents obtained by The Intercept and Documented reveal the strategy that private health care interests plan to use to influence Democratic Party messaging and stymie the momentum toward achieving universal health care coverage.

At least 48 incoming freshman lawmakers campaigned on enacting “Medicare for All” or similar efforts to expand access to Medicare. And over the last year, 123 incumbent House Democrats co-sponsored “Medicare for All” legislation — double the number who supported the same bill during the previous legislative session.

The growing popularity of “Medicare for All” in the House has made progressives optimistic that the Democratic Party will embrace ideas to expand government coverage options with minimal out-of-pocket costs for patients going into the 2020 election. But industry groups have watched the development with growing concern.

    No rain yet, on it’s way however. Mudslides? Maybe in the burnt areas.

    Had sprinkled a little before I set out. I started so late that I only went up to Larry Street. At the new RV park somebody was staying in a monster trailer. Another RV seems to have pulled in after I went past and before I returned. On Stadium Way 4 RVs went past heading for the fooseball game RV parks; game is the Apple Cup on Friday.

    Day 4: 161+42=203 minutes.

    I’ve spend a lot of time since Bill died volunteering to raise awareness about out-patient palliative care and the reasons to address Advance Care Planning for our end-of-life wishes, if we could no longer speak for ourselves.

    Here in our county the Whatcom Dispute Resolution Center recognizes people in the community with what they call the PEACE BUILDER AWARD. This year, I was chosen in the healthcare category. I’m not posting that to boast — but to share what’s going on in my neck of the woods.

    La Crosse Wisconsin is the Advance Directive Capital of the World — with a 96% completion rate, when nationwide, the range is 21 – 30%. Quite a disparity, eh?
