Colorado health care proposal divides the left

first_imgDENVER | A universal health care proposal headed to Colorado ballots this fall has exposed some painful rifts among the state’s liberals.The tension boiled over this week when the left-leaning activist group ProgressNow Colorado held a news conference to denounce the ColoradoCare measure . That drew angry shouts from some supporters of the measure, who showed up to deride ProgressNow as sell-outs.ColoradoCare supporters held signs that crossed out ProgressNow and instead read, “Big Pharma Now.” Another sign asked, “Progress … Really?” And a third sign begged, “Stop Being Corporate Hacks.”Amendment 69 would replace the current health care system with the nation’s first universal health care system. The $25 billion plan would eliminate private insurance in favor of a 10 percent “premium tax,” with the state covering health expenses. Employers would share employees’ costs.The Durango Herald reports (https://goo.gl/kaEOF3 ) that Wednesday’s dueling news conferences had one calling the infighting a “civil war.”Democratic state Sen. Irene Aguilar backs the measure and turned out Wednesday to oppose ProgressNow’s position.“When organizations that are mislabeled as progressive choose to support the status quo, choose money influence over the lives of the 535 Coloradans estimated to die each year because of lack of access to health care, it makes the people angry and it makes me angry,” Aguilar said.ProgressNow’s executive director talked about the rift.“You think this is easy for us? This is not easy. This is tough. Doing the right thing is tough,” Ian Silverii said.His comments enraged Aguilar, who interrupted Silverii to say, “I am insulted that you implied that I’m spreading misinformation.”Colorado’s top-ranking Democrats — Gov. John Hickenlooper and U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet — also oppose ColoradoCare. So does the abortion-rights group NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado, which fears the change could intrude on abortion rights because the state constitution bans the use of taxpayer dollars on an abortion.“One of the most disturbing arguments we’ve been offered is we should remain neutral, despite the severe policy issues surrounding this,” said Karen Middleton, executive director of NARAL Colorado, told the newspaper. “This amounts to nothing more than waiting our turn.”The Herald reported that Wednesday’s ColoradoCare news conferences resembled Democratic shouting matches over the presidential nomination.Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who won Colorado’s presidential caucuses but went on to lose the nomination to Hillary Clinton, favors ColoradoCare.Conservatives in Colorado were cheering the progressive rift over the health measure.“What we are also seeing is people from every shade of the political spectrum turn red hot against government control over health care,” Jonathan Lockwood, head of the conservative Advancing Colorado, said in a statement Thursday,___Information from: Durango Herald, https://www.durangoherald.comlast_img read more

Judge temporarily blocks tell-all book by Trump’s niece

first_img1 of 2 Distribution of a tell-all book by President Donald Trump’s niece was blocked by a judge Tuesday after the president’s brother said its publication would violate a pact among family members, but a publisher’s chief executive says the book has already been shipped and could not be stopped.New York state Supreme Court Judge Hal B. Greenwald in Poughkeepsie, New York, issued an order requiring the niece, Mary Trump, and her publisher to explain why they should not be blocked from publishing the book: “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man.” A hearing was set for July 10.The book, scheduled to be published July 28, was written by Mary Trump, the daughter of Fred Trump Jr., the president’s elder brother, who died in 1981. An online description of it says it reveals “a nightmare of traumas, destructive relationships, and a tragic combination of neglect and abuse.”The judge said no portion of the book can be distributed before he decides the validity of Robert Trump’s claims. Robert Trump argues Mary Trump must comply with a written agreement among family members that such a book cannot be published without permission from other family members.Mary Trump’s lawyer, Theodore J. Boutrous Jr., and her publisher, Simon & Schuster, immediately challenged the order. Hours later, Simon & Schuster Chief Executive Officer Jonathan Karp said in court papers that the publisher was unaware of allegations of any agreement between Mary Trump and her family until two weeks ago.“To take the unprecedented action of enjoining the publication of this Book, even temporarily, would interfere with Simon & Schuster’s constitutionally protected rights and its mission to inform the American public about newsworthy topics,” he said. “It would also interfere with Simon & Schuster’s readers’ constitutionally protected rights to receive newsworthy reporting.”Karp said Mary Trump offered “a personal and never-before-seen perspective on President Trump” in the book, which had become No. 1 on the Amazon Best Seller List.In court papers filed Tuesday night, the publisher’s lawyers said thousands of the 75,000 copies of the book that have been printed have already been shipped to sellers.They noted that the shipping schedule was set far in advance of the court action and was not expedited because of it and that Simon & Schuster had provided multiple booksellers with key information about the book and some of them have published it.“The trial court’s temporary restraining order is only temporary but it still is a prior restraint on core political speech that flatly violates the First Amendment,” Boutrous said.“This book, which addresses matters of great public concern and importance about a sitting president in election year, should not be suppressed even for one day,” Boutrous said in a statement.Adam Rothberg, a Simon & Schuster spokesperson, said the publisher was disappointed but looks forward “to prevailing in this case based on well-established precedents regarding prior restraint.”Charles Harder, an attorney for Robert Trump, said his client was “very pleased.”He said in a statement that the actions by Mary Trump and her publisher were “truly reprehensible.”“We look forward to vigorously litigating this case, and will seek the maximum remedies available by law for the enormous damages,” he said. “Short of corrective action to immediately cease their egregious conduct, we will pursue this case to the very end.”In court papers, Robert Trump maintained Mary Trump was part of a settlement nearly two decades ago that included a confidentiality clause explicitly saying they would not “publish any account concerning the litigation or their relationship,” unless they all agreed, the court papers said.Associated Press writer Michael Balsamo contributed to this report from Washington.

Conway is a proud Berbician and a Natural Sciences enthusiast holding a Bachelor’s Degree in Chemistry and a minor in Biology from the University of Guyana.She is currently a lecturer and lab instructor attached to the University of Guyana and the New Amsterdam Technical Institute.This Guyanese beauty is a strong believer in her faith as a communicant Methodist.

‘Calm’ Jose Mourinho has got Man United on right track, says Sir Alex Ferguson

first_img1 The Red Devils extended their unbeaten run to 17 matches Jose Mourinho should be inspired by the progress his Manchester United team have made – and they are “unlucky” not to be challenging Premier League leaders Chelsea, according to former manager Sir Alex Ferguson.The Red Devils extended their unbeaten run to 17 matches on Saturday with a 1-1 draw at Stoke, the equaliser coming courtesy of a Wayne Rooney free-kick which saw the England captain pass Sir Bobby Charlton’s mark to become the club’s all-time record scorer with 250.United sit in sixth in the standings – two points behind Manchester City and four adrift of Liverpool although 14 shy of Chelsea – and Ferguson is in no doubt Mourinho and his squad are moving in the right direction following the summer exit of Louis van Gaal.“I think he has done really well. It is like a player coming to Manchester United. It is not easy coming and transforming the club’s fortunes from my time, it is not easy,” Ferguson said in an interview with BBC Sport.“I thought Louis van Gaal did a good job and I think Jose is doing a great job.“He has got to grips with the club – you can see that. The team is playing really well and he has been very unlucky. He has had six draws I think, 1-1 – and every game he has battered that team.“I think without all of those draws, they would be challenging Chelsea.“That is the unfortunate part, but he has got to live with that but I think he will be inspired by the progress of the team.”Ferguson, who retired in May 2013 following 26 years at the helm, feels former Chelsea boss Mourinho has slowly grown into his role at Old Trafford.“I think Jose is finding solutions now,” the 75-year-old added. “There was a period earlier in the season when he wasn’t getting the decisions and his emotions boiled over. You see him now – he is calm and in control.“That is the obvious observation I am making of the team now. The team is mirroring its manager.“It is playing with great energy, determination and will to win, which I think is really important.”Ferguson made Rooney the most expensive teenager of all-time when signing the player aged 18 from Everton for around £30million in 2004.The Scot recalled how the mother of Everton chairman Bill Kenwright had come on the phone during negotiations urging him not to sign “her boy”.Ferguson was impressed by Rooney’s “courage” as a striker, but “never imagined what he would go on to achieve”.Charlton’s 249-goal club-record tally, achieved over 758 appearances, had stood for 44 years. Rooney, 31, has featured in 546 games.It is a landmark Ferguson believes may never be surpassed.“In the present-day game, it is difficult to see any club having players who can stay with them for 10 years, so I think that is the issue,” Ferguson said.“Jose has mentioned Marcus Rashford and there is an opportunity for that young lad, if he stays at United, and develops his potential the way that Wayne has, but it is a very big target to hit.“Bobby Charlton’s record was quite substantial. I couldn’t think anybody would beat that. It (Rooney’s record) is an achievement par excellence.”last_img read more
