The Corporate Donors Behind a Republican Power Grab

Walgreens, Microsoft, and more.

The problem is all Corps are owned by voting stock and all voting stock is owned by the very rich no matter what the name of the Corp is, its pretty much the same very rich, so they are all just tools of the oligarchs by definition.

Its the same no matter where or when, at the end of the day the Washington Generals are not supposed to win the game, just put on a good show, but they want the Globetrotter’s to win just as much as the Globetrotter’s do while giving the impression that its a real game.

The Revolution is now going to start causing real issues for them though because there are now people in the party who aren’t part of the stage show and are actually trying to win. This is going to force them to either have to be more actually competitive or risk making it too obvious its just a show.

That’s why running through the party is so important in the long run, because even if we cant take over the party, the very act of trying will pull the curtain on the whole charade and create an opening for a new party.

Investigation of generic ‘cartel’ expands to 300 drugs

What started as an antitrust lawsuit brought by states over just two drugs in 2016 has exploded into an investigation of alleged price-fixing involving at least 16 companies and 300 drugs, Joseph Nielsen, an assistant attorney general and antitrust investigator in Connecticut who has been a leading force in the probe, said in an interview. His comments in an interview with The Washington Post represent the first public disclosure of the dramatically expanded scale of the investigation.

The unfolding case is rattling an industry that is portrayed in Washington as the white knight of American health care.

“This is most likely the largest cartel in the history of the United States,” Nielsen said. He cited the volume of drugs in the schemes, that they took place on American soil and the “total number of companies involved, and individuals.”

The alleged victims were American health-care consumers and taxpayers, who foot the bills for overcharges on common antibiotics, blood-pressure medications, arthritis treatments, anxiety pills and more, authorities say. The costs flowed throughout the system, hitting hospitals, pharmacists and health insurance companies. They hit consumers who lack prescription drug coverage and even those with insurance, because many plans have high deductibles and gaps on prescription drug benefits.

Mylan CEO Heather Bresch, testifying on Capitol Hill in 2016, faced public scrutiny for her company raising the price of its EpiPen by about 500 percent. (Pablo Martinez Monsivais/AP)
In just one instance of extraordinary cost spikes, the price of a decades-old drug to ease asthma symptoms, albuterol, sold by generic manufacturers Mylan and Sun, jumped more than 3,400 percent, from 13 cents a tablet to more than $4.70. The example is documented in a lawsuit brought against the generic industry by grocery chains including Kroger.

“Everyone is paying the price,” Nielsen said. He offered a single word to explain the behavior: “Greed.”

I noticed generics I take had gone up this year. And co-pay rules for prescription drugs are getting more complicated.

This will come to haunt those of us who will have to go to Medicare eventually. Medicare is good but needs to be fixed too.

polarbear4

oh yeah. as soon as big pharma finds a drug that docs are prescribing, the price shoots up.

sometimes even a lower mg will cost 10x as much if the docs are prescribing it more. it’s crazy and the result of not having a single payer system. they are going all out to beat us. can they do it?

part of the reason i’m so M4All even as the Green New Deal is here is bc people can’t really even rest and work and be a part of society when they are not healthy. and so many are not healthy, it’s hard for them to worry about the earth, even if it’s killing us off, too.

Tony Evers ‘not particularly encouraged’ by chat with Scott Walker on vetoing GOP lame-duck bills

Democratic Gov.-elect Tony Evers is “not particularly encouraged” by outgoing GOP Gov. Scott Walker’s response to a request that he veto a GOP lame-duck bill package passed by lawmakers last week.

Meanwhile a chief proponent of the bills, Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, said in an interview airing Sunday that he’s concerned about the “aggressive tone and the posture” Evers has taken, especially his support for dissolving Walker’s jobs agency.

Taking to the national airwaves on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Evers said in an interview airing Sunday morning that he “communicated with Gov. Walker over the telephone a few days ago.”

The objective, he said, was to urge Walker to veto the bills, which would curtail early voting and powers of the incoming governor, Evers, and the state’s Democratic Attorney General-elect, Josh Kaul.

In doing so, Evers said Walker could ensure “the vote of the people of Wisconsin is actually upheld.”

“I made that pitch, and he was noncommittal,” Evers said. “I know publicly he has said in other arenas he plans to sign most of all of it. So I’m not particularly encouraged at this point in time.

“But it’s around Scott Walker’s legacy. He has the opportunity to change this and actually validate the will of the people that voted on Nov. 6.”

I’m certain Bruce Rauner would try it in Illinois if not for the Illinois leg is primarily Democratic.

I suspect the ACLU is going to have to get involved in the Wisconsin and Michigan cases.

In the good news department:

PARADISE, Calif. — A family has been reunited with their cat after it stayed behind during a deadly wildfire last month that leveled their home in Northern California.

Courtney Werblow and her family returned to her parents’ burned home in Paradise over the weekend and found their beloved cat, Timber, standing near the ruins.

Werblow recorded a video of the emotional moment when she spots the beige cat with a brown face looking at them from a distance.

She starts to cry as she calls Timber for a bowl of cat food.

After some hesitation, Timber walks over to Werblow, who exclaims in tears “You made it! You made it!”

Werblow tells news station ABC10 it was a much-needed moment of hope for her family and parents who lost everything in the Camp Fire.

The cat is a Siamese cat. Looks a bit like my Jaz.

I clicked on the NYT link by accident, but here it is:

A video that shows police officers trying to remove a woman’s 1-year-old son from her grasp as they arrested her in a Brooklyn food stamp office ignited a fury on social media and prompted calls on Sunday for an explanation from the police.

A Facebook user who uploaded the video said the police had been called on Friday after the woman, identified by the police as Jazmine Headley, 23, sat on the floor of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program office in Boerum Hill because there were no available chairs.

After a verbal dispute with a security guard, someone called the police, according to Nyashia Ferguson, who posted the video.

It begins with Ms. Headley lying on the floor, cradling her son and yelling, “They’re hurting my son! They’re hurting my son!”

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/09/nyregion/nypd-jazmine-headley-baby-video.html

How humiliating and traumatic for Jazmine, her son, and all of the onlookers. 🙁

A female sergeant and three police officers, two of whom appear to be women, surround Ms. Headley and attempt to pull the child away. Then one officer, her back facing the camera, repeatedly yanks the child in an apparent attempt to separate him from his mother.

After more officers join the fray, the officer who yanked the child waves a yellow stun gun at the outraged crowd of onlookers, which includes several children and people filming with their cellphones.

More from Scott Hechinger:

“This woman was in crisis. She had to take a day off of work because her benefits were shut off unexpectedly. Had to take her 1 y/o bc of lack of child care. Instead of helping alleviate a crisis, police only escalating.”

Current situation: She’s still in Rikers. Charged with obstruction of governmental administration, resisting arrest, & *endangering the welfare of her child.* NYPD arrested, Brooklyn DA charged AND requested an order of protection blocking *this mom* from contact w/ her son.

Hundreds of sex abuse allegations found in fundamental Baptist churches across U.S.

Joy Evans Ryder was 15 years old when she says her church youth director pinned her to his office floor and raped her.
“It’s OK. It’s OK,” he told her. “You don’t have to be afraid of anything.”The youth director, Dave Hyles, was the son of the charismatic pastor of First Baptist Church of Hammond, Indiana, considered at the time the flagship for thousands of loosely affiliated independent fundamental Baptist churches and universities.

At least three other teen girls would accuse Hyles of sexual misconduct, but he never faced charges or even sat for a police interview related to the accusations. When he got in trouble, Hyles was able to simply move on, from one church assignment to the next.

More than 200 people — current or former church members, across generations — shared their stories of rape, assault, humiliation and fear in churches where male leadership cannot be questioned.

Here you go.

https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2018/05/23/opinion/international-world/centrists-democracy.html?smid=tw-share

The warning signs are flashing red: Democracy is under threat. Across Europe and North America, candidates are more authoritarian, party systems are more volatile, and citizens are more hostile to the norms and institutions of liberal democracy.

These trends have prompted a major debate between those who view political discontent as economic, cultural or generational in origin. But all of these explanations share one basic assumption: The threat is coming from the political extremes.

On the right, ethno-nationalists and libertarians are accused of supporting fascist politics; on the left, campus radicals and the so-called antifa movement are accused of betraying liberal principles. Across the board, the assumption is that radical views go hand in hand with support for authoritarianism, while moderation suggests a more committed approach to the democratic process.

Is it true?

Maybe not. My research suggests that across Europe and North America, centrists are the least supportive of democracy, the least committed to its institutions and the most supportive of authoritarianism.

Centrists Are Least Likely to
Support Free and Fair Elections

Centrists Are Least Likely to
Support Liberal Institutions

humphrey

Abit more:

Across Europe and North America, support for democracy is in decline. To explain this trend, conventional wisdom points to the political extremes. Both the far left and the far right are, according to this view, willing to ride roughshod over democratic institutions to achieve radical change. Moderates, by contrast, are assumed to defend liberal democracy, its principles and institutions.

The numbers indicate that this isn’t the case. As Western democracies descend into dysfunction, no group is immune to the allure of authoritarianism — least of all centrists, who seem to prefer strong and efficient government over messy democratic politics.

Strongmen in the developing world have historically found support in the center: From Brazil and Argentina to Singapore and Indonesia, middle-class moderates have encouraged authoritarian transitions to bring stability and deliver growth. Could the same thing happen in mature democracies like Britain, France and the United States?

Gov. Inslee’s new climate plan nixes coal power by 2025

Along with Democratic lawmakers, Governor Jay Inslee announced his latest plan to curb carbon pollution in Washington state Monday, setting forth a 15-year itinerary with a range of changes that he hopes will result in 100 percent clean energy.

To do this, Inslee’s plan aims to cut carbon emissions in Washington by 25 percent below 1990 level by 2035, and end the use of coal-powered electricity consumption by 2025. It’s part of a Clean Energy Transformation Act that will be introduced by Democratic lawmakers in the state Legislature’s next session.

https://thehill.com/policy/technology/420647-linkedin-co-founder-building-voter-data-bank-that-is-existential-threat-to

The billionaire co-founder of LinkedIn, Reid Hoffman, has reportedly teamed up with a few ex-Obama administration officials to build an independent database that would store all of the progressive community’s voter data.

Three sources familiar with the initiative told Politico that the project backers plan to funnel $35 million into the effort in the first year alone and Hoffman will be the primary investor.

“As we build this effort, we will be reaching out to all the key players soon to get this done,“ a person familiar with the discussions told the paper, emphasizing that the effort is still in its beginning stages.

“Across the board, everyone involved agrees that the Republicans have a tremendous advantage when it comes to data infrastructure going into 2020, and that there needs to be a real shift in our thinking and action in order to set candidates up to be successful for people around the country.”

The project will be independent from the Democratic National Committee and likely for-profit, Politico said. The ambitious project likely would not be ready for 2020.

The group spearheading the effort for House Democrats to move Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal” to the top of their legislative agenda appeared to score a victory on Monday as more than 1,000 demonstrators stormed the Capitol Hill offices of Democratic House leaders to stage sit-ins.

Massachusetts Rep. Jim McGovern, the top Democrat on the House Rules Committee, emerged from his office to address protesters and promised them that he is “committed to the House Select Committee on a Green New Deal.”

U.S. Capitol Police on Monday arrested roughly 143 activists, including 61 outside the office of the likely next speaker, California Rep. Nancy Pelosi. The mostly high school- and college-aged protesters demonstrated in or outside nearly 50 congressional offices to urge lawmakers to confront man-made climate change.

One of the group’s primary targets for demonstration Monday was incoming House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer. The Maryland Democrat and longtime Pelosi deputy has accepted more than a quarter of a million dollars from the fossil fuel industry. Protesters also confronted the likely next House Energy and Commerce Committee chairman, Democratic Rep. Frank Pallone, who has accepted $143,000 from energy groups and executives.

The GOP’s Food-Stamp Failure (from WSJ)

But now the House reformers who put food-stamp sanity over fixing farm subsidies may end up with neither. The conference report hasn’t been released, though conferees have said the work requirement is out. House Agriculture Chairman Mike Conaway fought for months, and he deserves credit, but his GOP Senate counterpart worked against him.

Senator Pat Roberts of Kansas decided he wanted a farm bill more than he cared about the details, and Michigan Democrat Debbie Stabenow has exploited the opportunity. Put up a missing-person ad for the Pat Roberts who waxed about fixing problems with food stamps on the Senate floor in 2013. Mrs. Stabenow presented as “concessions” even good-government proposals such as case management that should be bipartisan or unanimous. The program is rife with fraud and dubious asset testing.

Then again, the White House weakened its own hand. President Trump supports work requirements but is reluctant to threaten a veto because farmers are furious about being casualties in his trade war. Mr. Trump’s political incentive is to cut a check to big agriculture and hope the tariff anger dies down. His tariffs may cost him a significant welfare-reform achievement.

The Agriculture Department can curb some food-stamp abuses through regulation—for instance, ending “broad-based categorical eligibility” that lets someone qualify for food stamps based on receiving a heating assistance flyer in the mail. Ditto for cracking down on state waivers that whittle down the minimal work requirements in current law. Yet the next Administration can and probably will repeal Trump changes that aren’t in statute.

The political question is whether Congress will ever have the mettle to fix food stamps if not now. The labor market is stronger than it’s been in years but the program still hasn’t returned to pre-recession enrollment levels. About 40 million Americans receive food stamps, more than double the number 20 years ago, and the figure isn’t falling.

The Republican Congress is going out with a whimper, which is a particular shame because this is the last chance for pro-growth government reform for many years. As long as Democrats hold the House, Republicans will be left trying to stop the further expansion of the entitlement state.

Perhaps if the GOP would raise minimum wage to a real living wage and demand Walmart and others to stop hiring people for less than 40 hours a week whereby folks have to get food stamps, this is would not be such a “failure.”

Pay them a living wage they can survive on and poof! where are the food stamp lines?

It’s a question of disposable income. If a government imposes a flat tax on motor fuel as Mr Macron did, that hits the poor hardest because it eats their disposable income.

The fuel rises were doubly galling for the yellow vests in their suburban and rural homes because they can’t rely on good public transport like rich city slickers do.

So how can the poor be protected?

Academics have figured out over the years how to protect the poor from green taxes, but Mr Macron appears to have missed their research, or ignored it.

His fuel tax took from people struggling with living costs, and diverted the proceeds to wind farms instead.

A very different Robin Hood policy in Australia deliberately re-directed carbon taxes to help the worse-off.

It took the $5bn Australian dollars ($3.6bn; £2.9bn) of annual profits from a carbon tax on industry and diverted it to the poor by introducing lower income taxes and higher welfare payments.

So are green economists cursing Mr Macron?

Environmental economists will be appalled that the Macron policies have made carbon taxes more politically toxic just as governments need good solutions to climate change

What I’m still trying to envision, how is taking the revenue in taxes (whether or not that revenue is from taxing individual energy users or corporate users) then redistributing that revenue to lower income people going to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels? I realize that some governments claim that at least some of that tax revenue will be directed things like wind farms for example.

Will those who buy their electricity from wind-powered generation not pay any carbon taxes? Will wind power electricity cost consumers less than fossil fuel energy? Here in CT you can choose a green energy-type supplier, but it’s more expensive.
