Senator Hughes Urges Obama Not Accept Corbett's Health-care Plan

HughesMr. President: Don't Buy Governor Corbett's Health-care Plan

Hello,
Last week, I sent a letter to President Barack Obama calling for him to reject Governor Tom Corbett's "Healthy PA" plan and endorse traditional Medicaid expansion for Pennsylvania. I published the letter as an op-ed in the Philadelphia Daily News, which is below.
Please read the op-ed and share it with your friends, family, and neighbors.
Sincerely,
Senator Vincent Hughes


Dear President Obama:
Medicaid Expansion Floor Remarks :: June 24, 2013
Medicaid Expansion Floor Remarks :: June 24, 2013
Gov. Tom Corbett recently provided long-awaited details on his so-called Healthy PA plan to extend health insurance to low-income working adults. He is seeking a federal waiver to implement his proposal. It's good news that Gov. Corbett wants to expand coverage. Unfortunately, his plan falls drastically short of what could be done in Pennsylvania.
Gov. Corbett claims that he wants more "flexibility" than provided by traditional Medicaid. Pennsylvania's Medicaid program is already run by the private sector and has a long history of success providing quality health coverage and saving billions in taxpayer dollars.
Gov. Corbett's model, crafted with similarities to the Arkansas plan, forces Pennsylvania recipients to purchase their insurance through the national health-care exchange (Healthcare.gov), even though he made the decision to not establish a state-run exchange, as other states have done for their residents. The federal exchange, despite dramatic improvements, remains a far more cumbersome process than simple Medicaid expansion. This threatens to leave very vulnerable people with no insurance coverage at all.
The biggest issue is timing. The governor's own waiver acknowledges that his proposal is unlikely to expand coverage for eligible individuals until Jan. 1 at the earliest. Under his plan, there will be at least 500,000 people who will be left without health insurance this year. They would have been covered under Medicaid, but most of these individuals will not qualify for any subsidies to purchase coverage until a new plan is put in place. This is unacceptable and could easily be avoided by simply expanding traditional Medicaid. It's especially troubling because these individuals are working adults who don't make enough money to afford insurance. They are playing by the rules, but are being left behind by Gov. Corbett.
According to the state's Independent Fiscal Office, expanding Medicaid would generate about $400 million in state budget savings during the next fiscal year. State budget experts say Pennsylvania may be facing a deficit of as much as $1.4 billion. We cannot afford to ignore any opportunity of this magnitude to reduce that deficit. It's unclear if Corbett's alternative plan would save any money, let alone $400 million, in the next fiscal year. It is clear that expanding Medicaid is the financially responsible choice for Pennsylvania.
Many in your administration have been cool to numerous provisions in the governor's proposal, especially a work-search requirement for subsidy recipients. This is something that is unlikely to be approved, but Gov. Corbett included it in his waiver anyway. Some have suggested this indicates that the Corbett administration is trying to get federal officials to reject their plan so that they can place the blame on Washington.
The facts clearly show that expanding Medicaid is superior to Gov. Corbett's alternative proposal. For the sake of the people of Pennsylvania, I am asking that you reject the proposal that the governor has offered.
Sincerely,
State Sen. Vincent Hughes
7th Pa. Senatorial District

Hughes Calls for Rejection of Corbett's Insurance Plan

By Amy Worden, Inquirer Staff Writer
Posted: January 09, 2014

HARRISBURG - State Sen. Vincent Hughes (D., Phila.) wants the Obama administration to reject Gov. Corbett's proposal to provide health insurance to those newly eligible for Medicaid through private insurers.
In a letter to President Obama on Tuesday, Hughes writes that had Pennsylvania expanded its Medicaid rolls, as two dozen other states have, roughly 500,000 people would have had insurance coverage Jan. 1, and the state would have received $400 million in federal subsidies to pay for it.

Corbett's "Snow Joke" of a Health Care Hearing

By Randy LoBasso, Philly.com
Posted: January 6, 2014

OK, so neither rain nor snow nor heat nor gloom of night stays the Post Office and its workers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds. Everybody knows that. But did you know that a big snowstorm also doesn't stay the Corbett administration from moving ahead, when all else around is gloomy, with political hearings that might not be a lovefest for the governor's policies?

Toomey Visits Montgomery County Industry, Streamlight, Inc.

Senator Pat Toomey

Protecting Pennsylvania's Manufacturing Jobs

I was thrilled to visit Streamlight, Inc. in Montgomery County with State Sen. John Rafferty.  Streamlight is an innovative manufacturer of flashlights so reliable they are used by police and fire departments around the country and the U.S. Marine Corps. Their plant in Eagleville employs more than 250 workers, and their cutting-edge techniques, like 3-D printing, make them a prime example of Pennsylvania's business innovation.
But due to a bureaucratic oversight by the Department of Commerce, Streamlight might be required to pay $8 million in retroactive taxes. This is all the more troubling because there was simply no way for them to anticipate this exorbitant fee.
I have spoken directly to Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker about this issue. I will continue to make the case to her and I hope the Obama administration will do the right thing. You can read the Times Herald's article here.

Hanger says court ruling striking down Voter ID law is victory for justice

Hanger says court ruling striking down Voter ID law is victory for justice

Court once again stops Corbett assaults on constitutional rights


Harrisburg – John Hanger today praised Commonwealth Court’s decision, which the Voter ID law that Governor Corbett and the Republicans enacted to curtail many Pennsylvanians’ ability to cast their ballots, is unconstitutional.

“Pennsylvania courts once again have stopped Corbett’s assaults on our constitutional rights,” said Hanger. “Time and again state and federal judges have had to work overtime to block Corbett’s extreme undemocratic agenda.”

“This is the third case that Corbett lost trying to push his radical Tea Party policies,” said Hanger. “The Supreme Court struck down Act 13, the law that took away local control and handed over our Commonwealth’s air and water to the gas drillers. A federal judge threw out Corbett’s frivolous lawsuit against the NCAA Penn State sanctions, and now Commonwealth Court has acted to protect Pennsylvanians from an assault on their voting rights.”

“Not only has Corbett’s assault on the Pennsylvania Constitution insulted the public, he has wasted tens of millions of dollars in legal fees to push litigation that a first year law student would know were losers,” said Hanger. “Tom Corbett is simply not a competent governor, and the combination of incompetence and extremism threatens our basic liberties. We are thankful the courts recognize that.”

###
Democratic candidate for Governor of Pennsylvania John Hanger is widely regarded as one of the most insightful and best informed progressive public policy experts in the state. Formerly a public-interest lawyer advocating on behalf of low-income families, John is nationally recognized as a leading authority on clean energy development and environmental protection. He served both Governors Casey and Rendell in key positions: first for Bob Casey as Commissioner of the Public Utilities Commission, where he successfully fought to cap electric rates to save Pennsylvania ratepayers billions and for two years as Secretary of the Department of Environmental Protection in the Rendell Administration. Throughout his career in public service, John has embodied the essence of his campaign slogan "Policy first, politics second."

LPN's & RN's Wanted In Ulysses & Galeton

Emma Louise Marshall Ginther, 85, Emporium, PA Native

Emma Louise Marshall Ginther, 85,  died peacefully surrounded by loved ones in Pinellas Park, FL on January 16, 2014. Emma was born on May 21, 1928, and grew up in Emporium, PA, where she graduated as salutatorian of her high school class in 1946. 

She trained to become a registered nurse at Presbyterian Hospital in Philadelphia and later earned a BA in nursing administration from St. Joseph’s College in Standish, ME. 

She also lived in St. Marys, DuBois, Shippensburg, PA, and most recently at Green Ridge Village, a Presbyterian retirement community in Newville, PA.

Emma’s main loves in her life were family, faith, music and nursing.

First and foremost, Emma loved her family. She is predeceased by John Ginther, her husband of 56 years, who passed away in 2006. She is survived by her daughter Barbara Zullinger and son-in-law Roy Zullinger of Shippensburg, PA; her son Michael Ginther and son-in-law Jim O’Donnell of San Francisco, CA; four grandchildren, Brian Zullinger and wife Becci, Beth Zullinger, Emma Ginther, and Audy Ginther; and three great grandchildren, Halle, Bailey and Cameron.

Emma was raised a Methodist and became a Presbyterian when she married. She was always active in her church, where she served in various roles. She had been a long-standing member of the Middle Spring Presbyterian Church and most recently was attending the Second Presbyterian Church in Carlisle, PA. Because of her strong faith, she was calm and at peace during her last days, ready to meet her Maker.

She sang all her life, in choirs, choruses and as a soloist. She also played the flute, piano and trombone. Over the years she acted as choir director for both the children and adult church choirs. At the time of her death she was an active member of her church choir and the Village Aires chorus at Green Ridge Village. She was a member of the First Court Chapter #470 Order of the Eastern Star, Shippensburg.

Emma also loved being a nurse, a career she chose at age 5 after observing nurses care for her beloved sister Margie who suffered from a crippling disease. She worked for 40 years as an RN, nursing supervisor and instructor before retiring from the Carlisle Hospital in 1988.

Emma lived a long and productive life. Even at the end, she was most concerned for the well-being of her family, giving them comfort and strength. She charmed her caregivers, complementing them when she liked their style and gently offering them “pointers” when she didn’t. Finally, accompanied by her iPad, she was doing her best to sing “Ave Maria,” “The Lord’s Prayer” and other favorite songs three hours before she passed.

Services will be held at noon on Tuesday, January 21, at the The Middle Spring Presbyterian Church, 135 Middle Spring Rd, Shippensburg. Officiating will be The Rev. Kimberley Wadlington and Rev. Jeff Gibelius. Burial will be in Middle Spring Cemetery. A viewing will be held Monday evening from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. in the Foglesanger-Bricker Funeral Home, 112 W. King St., Shippensburg.

Emma requested that any gifts in her name be made to Doctors Without Borders USA, PO Box 5030, Hagerstown, MD 21741 (www.doctorswithoutborders.org) or Shriners Hospitals for Children, International Headquarters, 2900 Rocky Point Dr., Tampa, FL 33607 (www.shrinershospitalsforchildren.org).

Corbett runs and hides from Philly students and parents

Corbett runs and hides from Philly students and parents

Corbett’s no-show at Central High is cowardly retreat from facing harm caused by his catastrophic war on public education

Harrisburg – John Hanger today said he’s not surprised that Governor Corbett does not have the courage to face Philadelphia students and parents after his catastrophic war on public education in Pennsylvania harmed students like those at Philadelphia’s Central High School.

“Governor Corbett’s planned visit to Central High School today would have been the height of hypocrisy,” said Hanger. “His education cuts left the schools without nurses; the cuts closed Central High’s library; his cuts left only two guidance counselors for the 2400 students at Central High. Because of his cuts to education funding, 21,000 teacher and education staff lost their jobs all across the state.”

“Corbett’s no-show at Central High shows that the governor is a coward,” said Hanger. “He does not have the courage to face the students he has harmed with these cuts.”

“Corbett’s visit to Central High was never anything more than a political stunt,” said Hanger. “He planned to use the students as political props.”

“Corbett’s education funding cuts are causing real, personal harm to the young people of Central High and all of our public schools,” said Hanger. “The damage has been most devastating to Pennsylvania’s urban schools. Every young person, no matter where he or she lives and no matter how much his or her parents earn, deserve an education that will prepare them for a productive future.”

###
Democratic candidate for Governor of Pennsylvania John Hanger is widely regarded as one of the most insightful and best informed progressive public policy experts in the state. Formerly a public-interest lawyer advocating on behalf of low-income families, John is nationally recognized as a leading authority on clean energy development and environmental protection. He served both Governors Casey and Rendell in key positions: first for Bob Casey as Commissioner of the Public Utilities Commission, where he successfully fought to cap electric rates to save Pennsylvania ratepayers billions and for two years as Secretary of the Department of Environmental Protection in the Rendell Administration. Throughout his career in public service, John has embodied the essence of his campaign slogan "Policy first, politics second."

Update On Jeremy Barnard

Day 15--Update On Jeremy Barnard

Happy Happy Birthday Son! We are so lucky to have you here to celebrate. Ariana and I spent the day with him and we decorated his room, got him his Joes Crab Shack he has been asking for all week. The hospital floor got him a little cake also.

They have determined that his foot is broken and it is now in a boot and is slowing his therapy down a little. His therapies were tough on him today and wore him out a little. He got pretty tired, but was a trooper and moved along! He got 27 cards today!!! Tomorrow, his son, his dad, his sister, his niece, and his nephew are all coming! We are going to PARTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay everyone - sitting down????????

Remember that my son spent 6 days in an ICU?

Remember that my son was found face down unresponsive in his apartment with a fever of 104.5?

Remember that my son was intibated and in very critical condition?

Remember how I told you how all the doctors kept telling us every day how lucky we are that he is still alive?

Remember the hospital is all calling him miracle baby?

Remember how a community of people, family, friends, neighbors, club brothers, fellow fire fighters, emts, ambulance personnel, co-workers, all came together in support and prayer of one needy soul?

MY SON IS BEING DISCHARGED FROM THE HOSPITAL ON WEDNESDAY MORNING AT 10 AM!!!!!!!!!

If all continues to go well, Jeremy will be discharged on Wednesday and will be coming to Vine Street. He will have to have in home therapy and will have to return to UPMC Presby for his surgery on Monday, the 27th.

How can our family ever begin to repay all of you for your prayers? No one will ever ever convince me that those prayers and the grace of God are not the reason he is still with us. This whole event is nothing but a miracle and I am super overwhelmed by it and having trouble comprehending it all!
We will get through the rest of this - all with a little help from our friends!

God bless each and every one of you!!!

Numerous Projects Updated For Water Quality Work Group

Numerous Projects Updated For Water Quality Work Group

water_quality-icon1Monitoring of local streams and rivers has been stepped up in the region, according to information reported at this month’s Potter County Water Quality Work Group meeting. Jason Childs from the Potter County Conservation District and Bob Volkmar from Trout Unlimited demonstrated the data chart that has been created from one of 16 remote monitoring stations placed at strategic locations in the county. Water depth, conductivity, temperature and other conditions are logged.

Frank Weeks, from the Upper Allegheny Watershed Association, reported that his group has begun installing separate monitors that will measure the acidity of precipitation. It’s part of a larger project to analyze the Allegheny River headwaters and a tributary, Mill Creek, to develop a conservation plan.

Volkmar and Mary Anne Heston from the Potter County Water Dogs updated the group on training and recruitment activities for volunteers who are taking regular measurements of designated streams to establish a database and document the impact of any disturbances. They also reported on a plan to partner with local 4-H clubs to assist.

Potter County Conservation District Manager Chris Mitterer was designated to review the list of illegal dumpsites recently made public in a statewide report and chose several of them to receive priority for cleanup. Jim Clark of Penn State Extension confirmed that a certified Cleanways organization in McKean County would be willing to partner with Potter County in the remediation work if certain conditions are met.

John McLaughlin, chairman of the Potter County Planning Commission and Triple Divide Watershed Coalition, reported on a recent meeting with the Pa. Dept. of Environmental Protection (DEP) regional administrator in Williamsport. He said the local delegation was pushing its case to have DEP require notification of public water suppliers when oil or gas permits have been requested in close proximity to drinking water sources.

Members also heard reports on requests for grants to cover streambank restoration and habitat improvement projects, as well as replacement of culverts in Kettle Creek that are impeding fish migration.

Also attending were Commissioners Paul Heimel and Doug Morley, Potter County Conservation District Board Chairman Earl Brown and Potter County Education Council Executive Director Bob Veilleux. Next Potter County Water Quality Work Group meeting will be held at 8 am on March 10 at the Gunzburger Building. Meetings are open to the public.

The Galeton Rotary Club met at the Ox Yoke Inn on Thursday, January 16 with club president Doug Reeves presiding.

B.J. Lowther was in charge of the program. He presented Dr. Pete Ryan and Dave Saulter, both from Coudersport. They spoke about Trout Unlimited's program , Project Healing Waters. This very worthwhile effort of Trout Unlimited focuses on vets with some combat related issues that they encountered while serving our country in VietNam and Iraq/Afganistan.

15 vets from Buffalo/Rochester areas are brought to Coudersport and honored with an escort and parade. They are bused to First Fork Lodge in Costello where they are lodged and treated to a three day stay with lodging and meals provided at no cost to them.

They are shown how to tie flies and fly fish in Big Moores Run. An excellent DVD was shown and it was obvious all were having a great time.

Trout Unlimited pays all expenses for this very worthwhile project. The total cost is over $11,000.

The Galeton Club was privileged to have Pete and Dave as our guests..

Next week George Bowen is in charge of the program.

Cancer Cure?


Think About It

Bumps in the Road

There isn't a person alive that hasn't or doesn't experience a bump in the road now and again. Although bumps in the road come in both negative and positive forms, we often gloss over the positive ones while saving our focus for those that are negative. The negative bumps can come in a variety of ways and with varying decrees of intensity and size. For example a family member was just fired from their job. This has caused a major bump in the road as it represents half of their income and all of their health insurance. They are now asking the question, "What next?”

Bumps in the road are great opportunities for learning and growth, if we choose to use them in that manner. But it would seem that more often then not, we want to quickly get through them and move on. We seem to have the belief that if we ignore them long enough that they will go away and life will return to normal. I wish that this was always true, but it is not.

Recently I was talking with a retired Navy Chaplain and was sharing some of my experience in the Navy during the Vietnam era. As I shared, I suddenly became aware of emotion starting to bubble up from deep within me. With tears in my eyes I apologized and explained that this was why I didn't like to discuss that time in my life and often looked for ways to avoid it. Ultimately, I believe that there are experiences from that time that I have glossed over and stuffed that are trying to get out. Like bumps in the road, I learned that I didn't have time to deal with things, and so just moved on. Sadly, moving on doesn't resolve the conflict that has already been started, and moving on doesn't solve the problem, it only delays the pain for another day.

My point is simple. Bumps in the road serve a purpose, we have a choice, work through the event and learn from it, or press on and pretend it didn’t happen. Many press on and pretend that it didn’t happen. Sadly, another trip around the mountain will be in their future. What will your choice be? Think about it.
