Thursday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:
Senate won’t vote on GOP health care bill The Senate will not vote on the Graham-Cassidy bill to repeal Obamacare, Republican leaders announced Tuesday, dealing a devastating blow to President Donald Trump and GOP lawmakers who tried to make a last-ditch attempt to deliver on the party’s years-long campaign promise. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced the decision at a lunch with fellow Republicans on Capitol Hill, conceding what had become clear Monday night: They didn’t have the votes.
Rand Paul: Trump will take executive action on healthcare after Senate failure Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., predicted Wednesday that President Trump would soon move on his own to make health insurance more affordable, after the Senate failed again this week to advance any bill to reform federal healthcare policy. Paul said on MSNBC that he thinks Trump would move to reinterpret an existing law in order to make it easier for people to buy health insurance across state lines. That’s a goal Republicans have had after since the passage of Obamacare in 2010.
Trump unhappy with top health official over travel President Donald Trump declared Wednesday that he’s “not happy” with his top health official, putting Tom Price’s job in jeopardy after his costly charter flights triggered a congressional investigation of administration travel. Asked whether he’s planning on firing Price, Trump responded: “We’ll see.” A former GOP congressman from Georgia, Price played a supporting role in the fruitless Republican effort to repeal Barack Obama’s health care law, which has been another source of frustration for the president. Price is known as a conservative policy expert, but his penchant for taking private charter aircraft on the taxpayer’s dime is creating new headaches for the White House.
Norm Singleton Is Back!
The GOP Tax Plan: the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly Yesterday, Congress and the Administration unveiled their framework for tax reform. Here is a list of the good, the bad, and the ugly features of the plan. Keep in mind the framework still has to be turned into legislation, where some of the good provisions could die, and some more bad or ugly provisions could be added.
Ends the death tax
Increases the child tax credit and makes it available to more taxpayers
Doubles the standard deduction so the first $12,000 earned by someone filing as an individual and the first $24,000 earned by a married couple filing jointly is completely tax-free
Ends the “alternative minimum tax” which was created to ensure wealthy taxpayers paid their taxes, but has turned into a trap for middle-and-working class Americans
Preserves the charitable deduction
Preserves the mortgage interest deduction
Allows companies to immediately write-off investment expenses
Cuts the corporate rate to 20%
Creates a new $500 tax credit for no-child dependents such as grandparents and disabled adults.
Maintains research tax deductions for businesses
Moves to a territorial tax system that does not punish American companies for selling goods overseas and makes it possible for American companies to invest profits made overseas in America
Raises the lowest rate from 10% to 12%, although the expanded personal deduction is likely to mean few, if any, taxpayers pay at this rate.
Imposes a “global” tax on multinational corporations
Leaves open the possibility that an additional higher rate will be added to ensure the “wealthy pay their fair share.” I thought Republicans opposed class warfare and soak the rich tax policy
Makes no effort to offset the tax cuts with spending cuts, meaning the final package will either contain tax increases or add to the national debt, thus increasing the inflation tax as the Fed moves to monetize the debt
HHS focuses on increased vaccination for new flu season The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services this morning announced its guidelines for this year’s flu season, with focus this year placed on increasing the number of people vaccinated after statistics suggest little increase in those opting for the vaccine. Influenza seasons can be hard to predict varying from mild to severe depending on the season and the predominant strain of influenza for that season.
Why flu vaccines so often fail The influenza virus has yet to hit the Northern Hemisphere, but flu vaccine season is already in full swing, with banners outside pharmacies urging: “Get Your Flu Shot Now.” What’s not advertised, however, is just how lackluster the vaccine is. The most commonly used flu shots protect no more than 60% of people who receive them; some years, effectiveness plunges to as low as 10%. Given that a bad flu season can kill 50,000 people in the United States alone, “10% to 60% protection is better than nothing,” says Michael Osterholm, an epidemiologist at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. “But it’s a terribly inadequate vaccine for a serious public health threat.” Now, researchers are striving to understand why it fails so often—and how to make a markedly better one.
Taking Good Care Of Your Skin With Turmeric!
Is turmeric good for your skin? Turmeric is a vivid, fragrant, and bitter spice. It has been used in Indian and Chinese traditional medicine for purposes as diverse as treating cancer to repelling mosquitoes. People have attributed turmeric with seemingly miraculous healing properties for nearly 4,000 years. The bright yellow powder derived from the root of the turmeric plant is also known as Golden Goddess and Indian Saffron. Turmeric is also widely used as a food colorant and dye.
Questions of The Day!
Robert, good day!
I don’t expect you to recall, but we briefly chatted at the ULS November 2016 in Grapevine, Tx. Here’s a quick, narrowly focused question about one of your interviews with Ty Bollinger. When he asks you the theoretical question about lung cancer and you respond that in such a case you’d be nebulizing silver, you also mention bicarbonate and a lavage-type procedure you describe as slightly more complicated. The question is: do you refer to the standard bronchoalveolar lavage? Or are you describing another (even if possibly related) procedure? Thank you, sir, for all that you do.
Robert, what can be done to help someone that has the disease in the movie Lorenzo’s Oil? I have a friend with it she is 50 and the just figured it out and have not given her much hope.
Josh Marino, a combat veteran, returned from the front only to find himself in the biggest battle yet… one for his very life.
One night, the struggles of dealing with what he had been through, became too much for him to handle. So he wrote a letter to his family and went outside to smoke one last cigarette before ending his life.
But at that moment, Marino heard a small noise coming from the bushes nearby and he stopped short.
Out walked a tiny, black and white kitten.
