Republicans keep praising Medicare Advantage (the privatized option for Medicare), but doctors and hospitals are raising alarms about denied claims and reduced payments. These predatory Medicare Advantage plans leave already vulnerable patients with more cruel choices, and Congress must take action. Email your representative and tell them to support the Save Medicare Act. https://act.indivisible.org/sign/ask-your-representative-support-save-medicare-act?source=mastodon&medium=directpost

@indivisibleteam Medicare Advantage hastened my mother's death last year, giving her only hospice as an option because pancreatic cancer treatment was too expensive. They throw away the elderly.

@samhainnight Thank you. It was a rough spring. I took care of her in our home while trying to work. Such a nightmarish situation all around. She really believed MA was a good program based on the lies they told her.

@lloydlemons Yes, we do. Her doc ignored and dismissed her symptoms for a year. By the time the cancer was discovered, she was Stage 4. Anyone who has persistent lower back pain and is told it's "too much sitting" related, get a second opinion!

Apparently Trump woke up.

Trump has re-entered the courtroom, per pool, but the video feed hasn't yet been turned on in the overflow room.

This indicates that they do not have a team of legal beagles working behind the scenes. Any well-staffed law firm could handle this requirement.

“‘Although race is often cited as the central cleavage in America, the single most powerful predictor of #voting intention is #religion,’ the Economist noted. ‘A model that knows nothing save for respondents’ religious affiliations can correctly identify which of the two leading candidates they prefer 62% of the time.’”

THE problem.

Via Emptywheel:

Criminal protection racket.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Just to sum up. You support #Trump for pres even if he's convicted in classified docs case. You support him for pres even though you believe he contributed to an insurrection. You support him for pres even though you believe he's lying about the last election. You support him for pres even if he's convicted in Manhattan case. I just want to say, the answer to that is yes, correct?

SUNUNU: Yeah. Me and 51% of America.

Kiddo was complaining about difficulties #dating and meeting people in this era and that #GenX had it way easier. She bemoaned playing the dating app game; told me how much harder it is for #GenZ.

So, I told her about Personals Ads and how you’d get a bunch of letters with or without photos in response to your ad and you’d then have to respond with a letter or a phone call to those you wanted to meet. It took time to get a date that way!

She decided our analog dating program was much worse. 😏

@KatM@mastodon.social avatar

@Lizette603_23 Ha! Yes. By the time I had explained the whole ridiculous process she said, “Ok. You’re right. It’s easier to get laid now than it was for your generation.” That quickly concluded the conversation.

Biden's Ballot Access in Ohio and Alabama Is in the Hands of Republican Election Chiefs, Lawmakers

DO NOT use FileYourTaxes.com no matter what the IRS tells you about it being a preferred service provider.

Once you create an account you cannot delete it, nor any of the financial data you provide. What's more... no 2-factor login.

The website is awful and all you'll get are form letter responses from an unmanaged email address you're given to request account deletion.

None of this is disclosed until you've created the account.

Beware! Avoid!

Arizona Republicans are blocking Democrats' efforts to repeal the Civil War-era abortion law that is now in effect in the state.

Shortly before the Republicans on Arizona's supreme court upheld the 1864 law, a group of Republican state senators gathered on the floor holding what looks like a gibbering seance, praying that gawd would allow them to force children to carry rapist pregnancies.

Please spread this clip. This is the true face of the Republican party.
