It is so logical to help single payer – where we can scale back prices in half – that the one factor that is sensible by way of Dem Central resistance is the money coming in from the health industrial complex. When people have a dog in the race do not all the time look for accuracy. What about picket traces? My right wing buddy Mike Antonucci at all times appears to have the ability to learn between the strains. But more of that in future posts – inspecting the fault lines between the cultural and financial populist left. The fact that everyday the objective posts appear to be shifting – is troubling. Such discrepancies arise from a elementary fact in regards to the American health care system: The government does not regulate health care prices. Let me point out that Italy was overwhelmed as a result of massive inflow but it surely has a better health care system than we do – in fact most superior countries do – but it was the delay by the federal government in Italy – not the health care system. An appendectomy, for example, costs $3,050 in Britain and $6,710 in New Zealand, two nations that regulate health costs. What’s completely different about the dearer providers is that they’ve set greater costs for his or her services. There are such a lot of balls in the air over going again to school and the potential UFT strike for full-time remote learning, attempting to disentangle it all has led to such overload that I end up retreating into escapist studying and Television.
At most the UFT has been holding conferences with chapter leaders and delegates and asking them to hold meetings in their faculties — the same old high down unmass action the UFT engages in. But for members on the fence, skipping the vote sends the message that the leaders don’t trust the members, or do not care what they think. They don’t all the time get it proper as even many chapter leaders do not have sturdy organizations in their very own faculties. BERNIE WAS Right!!!!!! I want to see this the subsequent time there may be an article like this – however do not hold your breath – the Dem Party Center wants to see this proceed – along with Obama care which clearly did nothing to curb this but they defend it to the max – yes, I imply Biden. Regardless that I nonetheless see anti-Biden refusniks, the vast majority sees Trump as a risk and after months of mourning the Bernie loss, have mostly come round. The NYT seems to have a cut up personality – fundamentally opposing Bernie Sanders whereas placing up a variety of alerts on medicare for all. Yet the articles never nake the connection to the foremost problem in the Democratic debates – medicare for all – single payer. This tends to have two major outcomes that health policy experts have seen before, and are seeing again with coronavirus testing. How many hospitals have been closed in nyc alone?
How can a easy coronavirus check cost $one hundred in one lab and 2,200 percent more in another? If a strike authorization vote happens today and tomorrow, they’ll pat themselves on the back for a scoop. Young individuals – 14 12 months olds in 2016 are going to vote – that is four years price of latest voters, who largely favor Dems. For members who are already on board, it makes a smaller distinction; the vote will increase enthusiasm. Other crimson state strike are an instance that UFT members is perhaps able to comply with. But I see some good indicators with the power of independent Ex Bd ex-More members Arthur Goldstein and Mike Schirtzer and Mindy Rosier. Well, NYC is a big city and a really segregated metropolis, and whereas elementary faculty kids tend to remain of their neighborhoods, middle and high-schoolers journey significant distances throughout neighborhoods, so I used to be involved to see how effectively we’re doing on the neighborhood degree in containing the virus. It may even provide you the unique likelihood to see the salon, how dirty or clear it’s. The coronavirus might train us all to value a strong security web – however there’s a good chance we’ll forget the lesson, because that is America, and forgetting working individuals is just what we do. Turnout of young people is larger than ever – Adv Biden.
Early voting – an astronomical number thus far however turnout at present might Trump that. So – the Delegate Assembly will meet tomorrow and depending on ongoing talks with de Blasio, might vote on a strike reso tomorrow. The UFT Executive Board offers the union leadership the authority to proceed negotiations with City Hall and the DOE on a college opening plan that meets the safety standards set forth by unbiased medical consultants; or, if negotiations fail, to carry a strike authorization vote to the Delegate Assembly on Sept. I perceive that there’s consideration of strike authorization votes on the Executive Board and the Delegate Assembly. There is enormous suspicion and distrust of de Blasio and Carranza, their incompetence so far (which I’ve chronicled here), and the great anger over the choice in March that led to many deaths of DOE employees. Well, there are answers to that – just like the protests right here in NYC have not led to a spike in cases and going into a school itself is indoors. Is there resistance? What are the problems?
