    Immigration Lawyer:

    by hawcreekl2 6 hours ago
    klystriig klystriig 6 hours ago Flag

    You are quoting verbatim from that rabid rightwing site newsmax, truly a wingnut ranch.
    Article posted by Andrea Billups. Other article there today claims interview with JFK's killer, from the grassy knoll naturally. That sort of stuff.

    Let me post a little longer portion:

    ""This week, the president has a historic opportunity to right his previous betrayals of the Latino community and lead the Democratic Party and Latinos back together," Carmona added. "We need a broad and inclusive executive order that begins to protect all 11 million undocumented immigrants."

    Even as specifics of Obama's plan have not yet been revealed, many immigrants are "flooding attorney's offices with calls," according to The Associated Press, in an attempt to ensure that they may be protected under the new executive order.

    "It's like the golden ticket," immigration lawyer Annaluisa Padilla told the AP, noting the increase in calls she's received amid news of Obama's announcement. "Everybody who is calling my office is asking how can I get a work permit under Obama's program? I am like, there is no Obama program yet.""

  • "In 1987, the Reagan administration took executive action to limit deportations for 200,000 Nicaraguan exiles, even those who had been turned down for asylum. Similarly, President George H.W. Bush in 1990 limited deportations of Chinese students and in 1991 kept hundreds of Kuwait citizens from being deported. President Bill Clinton regularly used his power of prosecutorial discretion to limit deportations; in 1993 he gave 18-month extensions to Salvadoran residents, in 1997 he limited deportations for Haitians, and in 1998 he limited deportations to Central American counties that had been devastated by hurricanes.

    President George W. Bush also took major steps to limit deportations on humanitarian grounds. In 2001, he limited deportation of Salvadorian citizens at the request of the Salvadorian president who said that their remittances were a key part of their nation’s economy. The Bush administration embraced prosecutorial discretion and ordered the consideration of factors such as whether a mom was nursing a child or whether an undocumented person was a U.S. military veteran in making the determination on whether to order a deportation."

    Impeach Reagan, he's an emperor!!!

    Gad, that is Benghazi-grade lame. Too bad Obama never provides you a real scandal, so you have to make stuff up and exaggerate.

    Presidents preside, they all do.

    "the treatment of foreign citizens is inextricably intertwined with the nation’s foreign affairs, an area especially under the president’s control. For example, the Supreme Court’s decision in 2010 to overturn large parts of Arizona’s restrictive immigration law, SB1070, was premised on the executive branch’s need for discretion in the immigration context. “A principal feature of the removal system is the broad discretion exercised by immigration officials,” the Court wrote, adding that “[t]he dynamic nature of relations with other countries requires the Exec­utive Branch to ensure that enforcement policies are con­sistent with this Nation’s foreign policy with respect to these and other realities.” In a similar 1941 case, Hines v. Davidowitz, the Supreme Court voided a Pennsylvania system of alien registration because “experience has shown that international controversies of the gravest moment, sometimes even leading to war, may arise from real or imagined wrongs to another’s subjects inflicted, or permitted, by a government.” "

  • " In 1987, the Reagan Administration granted relief from deportation to the minor children of parents who benefited from a 1986 immigration reform, even though the 1986 law did not grant that relief directly to those children."

    Every morning, the emotional slogan crowd can be counted on to trumpet new hypocrisy

  • klystriig klystriig 10 hours ago Flag

    So, Obama is uniquely forbidden to issue executive orders, eh? Limited by the Constitution to Republicans only, huh?

    "President Obama also is not the first president to exercise his discretion to give broad relief to a class of undocumented immigrants. In 1987, the Reagan Administration granted relief from deportation to the minor children of parents who benefited from a 1986 immigration reform, even though the 1986 law did not grant that relief directly to those children. Three years later, President George H.W. Bush granted similar relief to approximately 1.5 million “family members living with a legalizing immigrant [] who were in the U.S. before passage of the 1986 law.”"

    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    Obama issues far fewer executive orders than other presidents.
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

    "President Roosevelt issued the most executive orders, according to records at the National Archives. He issued 3,728 orders between 1933 and 1945, as the country dealt with the Great Depression and World War II.

    President Truman issued a robust 896 executive orders over almost eight years in office.

    President Obama has issued 184 orders so far in his presidency. His predecessor, President George W. Bush, issued 291 orders over eight years, while President Bill Clinton had 364 executive orders during his two terms in office."

    "I have two pages of password and user name combinations written down"

    Neutral suggestion; keepass.
    There are others, but this password manager is open-source and well scrutinized.
    All passwords and random other bits of info go in a single AES-128 bit encrypted file you can safely have laying around anywhere and everywhere. Very quick & easy to use.

    Windows version does work the nicest, but I've opened the same database on Android phones & tablets, iPhone, and mac laptop.

    Just do not forget that one master password; make it tough, never let it exist in plaintext form on any device, comms channel, or piece of paper. Maybe one written down in a safety deposit box, for Altzheimer's insurance.

    You say "the only people this helped were the ones already signed up on Medicaid"

    So, 4.8M Americans did not benefit?

    Kaiser:
    "New data released by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) shows that as of the end of March 2014, Medicaid and CHIP enrollment had increased by over 4.8 million people since open enrollment began for the new Health Insurance Marketplaces in October 2013."

  • klystriig klystriig Nov 19, 2014 7:27 PM Flag

    Informative graph on Kaiser's site, for health care costs from 1999 ($5791 family) to 2013 ($16351 family), showing a more or less steady growth all along, nothing new about that.

    This could be due to ever-increasing use of multimillion dollar machines and $1000/pill medicines (for Hep C) instead of the 1930's doc with $100 worth of kit in his little black bag to handle it all, or it could be by magic time machines changing the past for momentary political reasons.

    Elect whoever you want, but the sun will still rise in the east and you will get older every year.

    " My son in law is paying $400 a month with a $6,700 deductible he is making just over $40k a year"

    Oh boy, another meaningless anecdote.
    google "maximum deductable allowed under aca"

    "The maximum out-of-pocket cost limit for any individual Marketplace plan for 2015 can be no more than $6,600 for an individual plan and $13,200 for a family plan."

    So, it must be a family plan, or you're lying.
    By law, with income of $40k, the maximum % of income you have to pay is 4.91%. Which is $163 per month. For a family of 4. Not a bad deal for that family, which is at 170% of poverty level and could use the help.

    Look at the bright side, the money is coming from the blue states.

    Another anecdote by Hawcreek, about Hawcreek. Suitably impressed.

    Meanwhile across the nation, including those less important 316M people who are not Hawcreek, and therefore insignificant:

    "A look at 2015 individual market health insurance rate filings

    As open enrollment for the second year of the Affordable Care Act’s health coverage expansion begins, a clearer picture of 2015 health insurance rates has emerged. As of November 11, thirteen states—Colorado, Delaware, Maryland, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Vermont, and Washington—as well as the District of Columbia announced approved rates for both on-exchange and off-exchange health plans on the individual market. In total, HRI has collected data from 48 states and the District of Columbia.

    Among the thirteen states and DC with final rate announcements, the average premium (across metal tiers and ages) is about $363, and the average premium increase from 2014 is 3.4%. By contrast, the average premium increase across all reporting states is 5.2%, and the average premium is $386.

    Though average rate increases hover in the single-digit range, actual changes and premium prices vary significantly across states. In states with approved rates, average rates range from a 22% decrease to a 35% increase (in Colorado)."

    No quotes, you just post this as if you wrote it yourself.

    Typical hospital markups range from 500% to 1000% for uninsured. A debt collector can pay 10-20 cents on the dollar (and pursue 100% of it until the patient goes bankrupt or dies, or longer) and the hospital is happy, got paid regular price.

    Google this: "typical hospital markup for uninsured"

    So, you claim you had, and want, a policy deductable of $10,350. Seriously hillbilly plan you had there, sorry for your poverty.
    (ACA limit is $6600 individual, and you had to drop by $3750 to get there)

    btw - Medicade rise in covered people is less than half of the 10 million, and after all that's the people that a decent nations try to help a bit.

    Moving along, national rates (it's not all about you): +5.2%

    That junk bond used to be $16.08, and over the past several years is now down to about half that.
    It might, maybe, could possibly, hold there.

    Lax & unenforced regulations have allowed corporations to lowball their "estimates" on required pension contributions for years, so the fund ran deficits for the past 12 years. Surprise surprise.

    What's the problem with requiring honest accounting? After all, this is a $16000 Billion per year economy, it can handle decent American-grade pensions without a problem, unless a few CEO's and fat shareholders demand everything. Obama is pressing for the obvious, raising insurance premiums to meet this actual cost, protecting retirees. Of course the bought out tea party politicians will never defend ordinary workers, who earned and already paid for their pension over their careers. Unless their own companies stole it.

    Run along and spin some irrelevant tangent, troll boy.
