Campaign Action The Virginia House has included a Medicaid expansion in its budget for the next year, though the Senate budget does not include it. That's problem No. 1—they're going to have to fight that one out. But there's a bigger problem. Under the House Appropriations plan, Medicaid eligibility would be extended to couples making about $16,000 per year and families of four making about $25,000 per year. Virginia would also seek a waiver from the Trump administration in order to institute a work requirement for many Medicaid beneficiaries. Gov. Ralph Northam, a Democrat, has agreed to that provision and praised the expansion plan. Northam needs to do a little more digging before he signs off on that work requirement waiver. First of all, it's currently subject to litigation and
The White House admits that they used the Parkland school shooting as an excuse to cancel press briefings and a distraction away from the Rob Porter scandal. The Washington Post reported: Press staffers cited the tragedy as a reason to cancel on-camera briefings for the remainder of the week, allowing them to avoid questions about […] The post As Children Were Dying In Parkland, The White House Was Relieved That The Rob Porter Heat Was Off Them appeared first on Politicus USA.
COLONIE, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Multiple crews worked Monday morning to get a fully involved structure fire under control at a home in Colonie. When crews responded to the call on Arcadia Court, they say the narrow lanes out front made it so difficult to gain access to the home that they had to break through this fence behind the house. What they found in the sheds back here was even more concerning. “When we got here we were advised that there were some propane tanks back there. We did have some explosions,” Fuller Road fire Chief Chris Ruff said. “We were also advised there was some ammunition possibly in one of the residences – the smaller residence – that was on fire. So that added more hazards to us.” Officials believe the fire began near a shed at #64 and quickly spread
A better-not-to-know approach in the White House allowed the Rob Porter problem to fester and raises questions about whether officials are capable of creating a better system.
Reality TV's biggest villain, Omarosa, is now running things in the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house. So, who are her targets?
After flying to Florida to meet with some of the victims of this nation's latest mass shooting and the law enforcement officers who responded to that shooting, Donald Trump's team quietly announced that he would be making the ultimate sacrifice. President Trump reportedly skipped a day at the golf course on Saturday following the Florida school shooting that took place just miles from his Mar-a-Lago resort. White House aides told Bloomberg that the decision not to golf was a show of respect for the victims and grieving families of the school shooting in Florida. Mar-a-Lago is uncomfortably close the Broward County high school at which the shooting took place, and so Trump went to his club both before and after meeting with victims. xPresident Trump and the First Lady stopped by a Studi
Have you ever faced an integrity test? For example: someone reaches into their pocket and when they pull out their hand, a $20 bill slips out and lands or the floor. Or someone ahead of you in line at the grocery accidentally forgets their wallet and leaves it on the counter. Do you immediately alert this person about their potential loss, or do you simply pocket what they’ve carelessly left behind for your own gain? Do you do what’s right, or simply what’s expedient and convenient? If someone behind you in line sees you pick up the item and just before you stuff it in your pocket they say “HEY!”—do you deserve credit for finally giving it back only after you’ve been caught in the act? I think not. We face small and large tests like these all the time. How we respond to them is a tes
If you deem your house as your own sanctuary, the haven that keeps you safe and the place where you relax and take off your mask and feel comfortable, then you have to take great care of its design and all the properties that enable your pleasure and comfort. Flooring interiors are basic amenities at a house, they either keep you snug as a bug in a rug or just render you worn out with a burden that never drops off your shoulders. There was a time when interior designers were ashamed of how plain and insipid the flooring designs are. However, the situation was totally transformed as designers and manufacturers tossed around new possibilities and ideas in a bid to generate pleasant, durable and eco-friendly floor designs. Pouted Magazine lists ten of the most innovative flooring interior wit...
