Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Fairbanks, Alaska] Six Episcopal bishops have written a letter to 10 U.S. senators, urging them to vote against the latest Republican attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act, the health care law also known as Obamacare.The letter, dated Sept. 24, comes as the House of Bishops holds its fall meeting in Fairbanks, Alaska. Diocese of Alaska Bishop Mark Lattime is one of the bishops who signed the letter to senators. One of its recipients is U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, a Republican from Alaska whose vote was seen as crucial for passage of the so-called Graham-Cassidy bill, though on Sept. 25 the bill seemed headed for failure.“We urge you, Senators, in the spirit of fairness and proper process, to stand up against a bill that would cause such disruption and chaos to healthcare for millions of our citizens, especially the most vulnerable among us,” the bishops say in their letter. “As Christians and as faith leaders in our respective states, we ask that you stand firm on the democratic process that serves us all. Access to such healthcare is crucial to maintaining the social safety net that allows our communities to flourish.”Joining Lattime in signing the letter are Bishop Kirk Smith of the Diocese of Arizona, Bishop Stephen Lane of the Diocese of Maine, Bishop Mark Hollingsworth of the Diocese of Ohio, Bishop Thomas Breidenthal of the Diocese of Southern Ohio and Bishop Michie Klusmeyer of the Diocese of West Virginia.The letter is addressed to Murkowski; Sen. Dan Sullivan, R-Alaska; Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake, both Arizona Republicans; Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine; Sen. Angus King, I-Maine; Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio; Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio; Sen. Joe Manchin, D-West Virginia; and Sen. Shelley Moore Capito, R-West Virginia.Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had said he intended to bring the bill to the floor for a vote this week, but those hopes have all but slipped away. After McCain and Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, came out earlier against the bill, Collins announced Sept. 25 that she, too, would vote against it, seeming to indicate it does not have the 50 votes needed to pass.The bishops’ letter cites an estimated cut of $23 billion in federal health care spending over nine years in the bishops’ five states. It also singles out part of the legislation that would reverse an expansion of Medicaid under Obamacare, potentially affecting lower-income Americans.“Our Baptismal Covenant calls us to respect the dignity of every human being,” the bishops say. “It is our responsibility to challenge you, our elected leaders, to work toward justice and equality for the welfare of all people, not only those who can afford health insurance.”The Episcopal Church has long advocated for policies that support helping Americans access affordable and comprehensive health care based on a long series of General Convention resolutions. Its Episcopal Public Policy Network released a policy alert on Sept. 20 that called on Episcopalians to contact their representatives and ask them to oppose the new legislation.“The Graham-Cassidy bill lacks the benefits of informed public hearings with experts and thoughtful bipartisan compromises, and does not address the concerns highlighted in earlier ACA repeal efforts,” EPPN’s alert said.The bill, named after Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, is the latest in a series of Republican attempts to overturn the Affordable Care Act, President Barack Obama’s signature legislation, which he signed into law in 2010 after its passed Congress with no Republican support.Murkowski, who was one of three senators to vote against an earlier Obamacare repeal bill in July, hasn’t said yet how she will vote. Republican leaders have added incentives to the new bill targeting Alaska, including a provision that would exempt Native Alaskans from losing Medicaid coverage when the program is rolled back.– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service. He can be reached at [email protected] P.J. Cabbiness says: Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Submit a Press Release Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ September 26, 2017 at 5:25 pm Obamacare needs to be improved in a thoughtful bipartisan manner. We do not need to repeal it nor do we need to move any fury towards a single payer European socialist model. It is time for the moderate republican and democrat “center” to unite on this and other issues. The radical elements of each party are pushing us into chaos.

Andrew Carey Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up [email protected] young children had to be thrown from the first floor of a burning house in Limerick after fire broke out in the their Thomondgate home early this Sunday morning. Three units of Limerick City Fire and Rescue service were dispatched to the scene on High Road shortly before 6am this Sunday to tend to the blaze. Five ambulances attended the High Road address to treat the family of five. Two adults had to pass the young children out of the first floor window such was the extent of the inferno below. The rest of the occupants of the house then jumped out the window after neighbours and passers by assisted in the rescue shortly before the first responding agencies arrived on scene. One person suffered a broken leg as a result of the impact of the jump. Firemen, with specialist breathing equipment, from the city fire and rescue service entered and swept the building checking for any one else that may have been trapped by the blaze or smoke. The fire was brought under control and extinguished a short time later.All five were initially treated at the scene by emergency paramedics and once stabilised, they were taken to University Hospital Limerick for further treatment.As gardai at Mayorstone investigate the circumstances surrounding the fire, the scene on High Street remains sealed off but the road is passable to motorists and pedestrians.

Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” Print Cllr Seighin O CeallaighLIMERICK Sinn Féin councillor Séighin Ó Ceallaigh is spearheading his party’s proposal to lower the voting age for Dáil, European, and Local Elections, as well as constitutional referendums to 16 years of age.The Government has already committed to lowering the voting age to 17, and will publish a Bill in the New Year. However, Cllr Ó Ceallaigh argues that the age should be set at 16, and that a referendum be held as soon as possible to ensure that this happens before the next general election.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “As the Youth Officer for Limerick Sinn Féin, I would encourage all young people to become politically active and to use their votes, and to be sure to register to vote,” said the 22-year-old public representative for City East.“Young people are constant targets of the Fine Gael and Labour Government with cuts to their social welfare, their mistreatment through Jobsbridge, and through the ever rising third level education fees, they deserve the opportunity to voice their opposition to these measures,” he claims.Cmhlr Ó Ceallaigh also believes the young people of Limerick deserve a chance to vote for their own future.“People who are 16 will soon face the adult world and at the moment they have no say in this world they are going to enter. At 16, some people are in third level education and have part time jobs, yet they cannot vote on issues that affect them, be that in general elections, local elections or referendums,” he commented.He maintains that the fact that 16 year olds in Scotland were able to vote in the recent referendum caught the imagination of people here.“The Scottish referendum blew the myth that young people are apathetic out of the water. Young people drove the turnout in the Scottish referendum in a way that was extraordinary. By doing so, they’ve shown that they are capable of getting engaged with politics.“If we get this right, we will take the first steps to creating a voter generation and democracy will thank us for it. I would hope that all parties in the Oireachtas support this proposal,” he concluded.

Sign up for DS News Daily More than one in three California households struggles to afford basic needs, and about four in 10 are “housing burdened,” spending more than 30 percent of their incomes on housing, according to a new report from the United Way’s United Ways of California chapter. The United Way created a Real Cost Measure, taking into account the cost of housing, food, healthcare, childcare, and transportation in each county in California. About 3.3 million households across the state do not earn enough to meet the Real Cost Measure and are struggling to meet their basic needs, according to “Struggling to Stay Afloat: The Real Cost Measure in California 2018.”Economic struggles impact all races and ethnicities across the state of California. More than 1.5 million Latino households, more than 1 million white households, about 429,000 Asian households, and 269,000 African-American households earn below the Real Cost Measure and qualify as housing burdened, according to the United Way. Also, seven out of 10 single mothers fall below the Real Cost Measure. Nine out of 10 households that do not meet the Real Cost Measure are employed, leading the United Way to suggest, “the challenge is raising pay rather than finding a job.” For those who fall below the Real Cost Measure in California, housing is a particular burden. “The comparison between what families report spending on housing and their overall incomes can be sobering,” the United Way report states. While California families who earn above the Real Cost Measure spend about 22 percent of their incomes on housing, those living in poverty spend an average of 79 percent of their incomes just on housing. Those who earn above the national poverty line but below the Real Cost Measure spend an average of 46 percent of their incomes on housing. Households that spend more than 30 percent of their incomes on housing are consistently considered “housing burdened” by economists. In total, about 72 percent of households below the Real Cost Measure fall into this category, according to the United Way. “A severe shortage of affordable housing is a brute fact in most California communities,” the United Way report stated. Tax credits and other subsidies for low-income housing fall short in California. First, many of the low-income units built are geared toward households earning 60 or 80 percent of the median income. Many households fall below this threshold. Secondly, a lack of funding for federal rent vouchers has made them unavailable to about three-fourths of eligible households. With an estimated 3.5 million additional low-income housing units needed to meet existing demand, “it should be clear that we cannot build our way out of the affordability problem,” according to the United Way. While housing issues facing California’s working, low-income residents are complex, the United Way does offer at least a couple solutions to ease the housing burden for lower-income Americans. First, the United Way points out that more than 60 percent of subsidies for homeownership go to households with income over $100,000. Also, for every $1 in taxpayer money that goes to rental support, $3 is spent to support homeownership, which is out of reach for many low-income Americans. The United Way suggests increasing support for lower-income renters in two ways. The first is fully funding federal housing vouchers so that all eligible families can obtain them. The second is to implement refundable federal renters’ credit, which the United Way says “would be an effective way to improve prospects for struggling households at scale, as well as to rebalance some of the tilt in federal housing subsidies that have grown to increasingly favor upper-income households.” The report states that housing has a greater impact than just a family’s monthly budget. “Housing plays a central role in the fate of struggling households,” according to the report. “The quality and location of housing for struggling households affects virtually every aspect of their lives, so improvements here can have impact well beyond reducing financial stress.” June 11, 2018 1,404 Views Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Previous: Renters vs. Buyers—Who Creates More Wealth?
