#GeeksGetCovered

America is full of geeks—and that’s a really good thing. Geeks are a critical driver of America’s innovation ecosystem, from the entrepreneurs launching startups in Silicon Valley to the scientists experimenting in university research labs to the whiz kids building gadgets in their parents’ garages.

 

Geeks Get Covered: A Message From Geeks at the White House

 

Uploaded on Mar 11, 2014

Geeks at the Office of Science and Technology Policy share their reasons why their fellow geeks should get covered.

 

 

The Obama Administration cares deeply about innovation, and about helping to make sure that geeks across the country, those coming up with new discoveries and exciting inventions—and creating jobs along the way—have the freedom and security to keep innovating.

 

That’s why today we are launching #GeeksGetCovered, an effort focused on raising awareness, sharing stories, and encouraging healthcare enrollment among geeks, innovators, and entrepreneurs.

 

Because of the Affordable Care Act, millions of Americans finally have the security that comes from quality, affordable health coverage.  And, millions more have better, more reliable coverage than ever before.  The Affordable Care Act also means that this year, geeks, entrepreneurs, researchers, and others can now make the decision to innovate and pursue their dreams without fear of losing coverage or worrying that a preexisting condition or new illness will bankrupt their families.

 

As the President said last year, “If you’ve got a great idea for your own business but you’ve never tried it because your spouse had a preexisting condition and you didn’t want to lose your employer-based coverage, you’ve got the ability now to get your own coverage.  That’s security.  That’s freedom.”

 

Today, there is strong evidence that when affordable healthcare isn’t exclusively tied to employment, in more instances people choose to start their own companies. For example:

 

  • recent study estimates that because high-quality health insurance coverage will no longer be tied exclusively to one’s employer, the number of self-employed Americans could increase by up to 1.5 million in 2014.
  • Another study indicates that the Affordable Care Act has already boosted entrepreneurship rates by providing young innovators coverage that helps them chase their dreams.
  • Another study shows that Americans are more likely to start a business at age 65 than at age 64, after they have the security of healthcare through Medicare.

 

And what’s true for entrepreneurs launching the next company is just as true for PhD students or part-time researchers working to expand the frontiers of human knowledge.  These scientists researching a cure for the deadliest diseases or creating game-changing technologies have more options today than ever before to access affordable, quality health insurance in the new insurance marketplaces.

 

So to all the geeks out there:  we’d love to hear from you on social media about what affordable coverage means to you as a geek using #GeeksGetCovered.  View the video from geeks at the White House to fellow geeks across America and check out Healthcare.gov today!

 

 

Twenty Reasons to Get Covered, Twenty Days Left to Enroll

 

clock

 

As of today, there are just 20 days left to enroll in health care coverage at healthcare.gov before open enrollment ends on March 31.

 

If don’t already have health insurance, head over to healthcare.gov to get covered now. You can compare your options based on price, benefits, quality and other features, and enroll in a plan that fits your needs and your budget.

 

WIth just one application, you can also find out whether you qualify for tax credits to help pay for insurance or other free or low-cost coverage options.

 

ends

 

 

To mark the 20 final days of open enrollment, here are 20 reasons to get covered. Check them out, then head over to healthcare.gov.

 

20 reasons to get covered:

  1. Six in ten uninsured Americans can get coverage for less than $100 a month.
  2. Preventive services like well-woman visits, cancer screenings, flu shots and more cost you nothing out of pocket.
  3. Health insurers are prohibited from charging women more than men for the exact same coverage.
  4. It’s illegal for insurance companies to charge more or deny coverage due to a pre-existing condition.
  5. Birth control for women is covered with no out-of-pocket costs or co-pays.
  6. Insurance companies can’t cancel your coverage when you get sick.
  7. All plans must cover essential health benefits including outpatient care, hospital visits, prescriptions, and more.
  8. Because accidents happen, and no one is invincible.
  9. There’s a new way to shop for plans, compare benefits and apply for coverage all online on healthcare.gov.
  10. You may qualify for lower cost coverage or tax credits to help pay for care depending on your income or family size.
  11. Mental health and substance abuse disorder services including counseling and psychotherapy must be covered at parity with medical benefits.
  12. If you’re a parent, your kids can stay covered on your plan until they turn 26.
  13. Insurance companies can no longer put a lifetime cap on the essential health benefits they’ll cover if you get sick.
  14. Insurance companies can no longer impose yearly limits on coverage for essential health benefits.
  15. Insurance companies must spend at least 80 percent of your premium dollar on health care — or you get a rebate.
  16. No one deserves to go broke just because they get sick.
  17. Insurance companies can’t cancel your coverage because you make a mistake on your application.
  18. Insurance companies must publicly justify their actions if they want to raise your premiums by 10 percent or more.
  19. Because you only live once.
  20. You can apply for coverage online at healthcare.gov. on the phone by calling 1-800-318-2596, in person (find local help here) or by mail (download the application to mail in here) — the whole process takes most people about 15 to 20 minutes.

I’m sorry to inform you Senator Ted Cruz….but you fail as a reader of Dr. Seuss, as well as a Senator.

 

THIS is how you read Green Eggs & Ham…..

 

Green Eggs and Ham narrated by the Reverand Jesse Jackson

 

Uploaded on Jun 17, 2011

10 years before Samuel Jackson read, “Go the Fuck to Sleep“, the Reverand Jesse Jackson read, “Green Eggs and Ham” by Dr. Seuss for SNL.

 

 

 

Ted Cruz Reads ‘Green Eggs And Ham’ On The Senate Floor

 

By 

 

WASHINGTON — Former New York Republican Sen. Al D’Amato once sang “Old MacDonald Had a Farm” on the Senate floor. Current Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz may have topped that infamous feat by reading Dr. Seuss’ Green Eggs And Ham during his symbolic filibuster in the world’s greatest deliberative body Tuesday night.

 

Watch it above.

 

It wasn’t the first time Cruz mentioned the Dr. Seuss classic in his bid to stall a bill that would defund Obamacare, which Cruz opposes. Earlier, he said his father, Rafael, invented the dish green eggs and ham.

 

Cruz read the tale at 8 p.m., about five hours into his speechifying, saying he was doing it for his two daughters for their bedtime while they were watching C-Span, back home in Texas. He explained that while it was one of his favorite stories, he seldom got the chance to read it to his children because they get to pick the stories, and they don’t ask for that one. Cruz also read Bible verses.

 

Cruz’s chief strategist, Jason Johnson, who was apparently on hand for bedtime back in Texas, snapped a photo of the girls, Catherine and Caroline.

 

Sen. Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.) came to the Senate floor to say that as a granddad, he appreciated Cruz’s reading of the story.

 

“Thank you for the recitation of green eggs and ham. That’s as good as I’ve heard,” Enzi said.

 

Thank you Huffington Post.

 

AmeriKKKan politics just went from The Twilight Zone to The Outer Limits.

TheObamaCrat™ Soapbox: State Of The Union Or “Welcome To AmeriKKKa.”


 

By Jueseppi B.

Don't Believe The Hype & Put Down That TeaTardedRepubliCANT Kool-Aid

Don’t Believe The Hype & Put Down That TeaTardedRepubliCANT Kool-Aid

 

In the past few months America has been taken over by AmeriKKKans. The very same AmeriKKKans who were screaming about civil liberties and shrinking big gubmint, are now seeking to have big gubmint keep gun reform from ever becoming a reality. Those same folks who want less gubmint involvement in our everyday lives, desire to have that very same big gubmint inside every American women’s vagina…..waaaay up in their uterus.

 

I’m a bit confused….if AmeriKKKans wish to shrink big gubmint, why are they asking big gubmint to get more involved in decision making for us everyday average Americans?

 

Can’t we, as intelligent thinking American citizens, decide for ourselves if we want ObamaCARES? Decide if we want Universal Background Checks? Decide if we need jobs, safe infrastructure, a complete study on Climate Control and a safety net for the less fortunate among us?

 

Oh wait…..we did decide that this past November….didn’t we.

 

Do we need AmeriKKKan sponsored information controlled by big gubmint corporate owned media outlets, advising us Americans to consume food infected by Monsanto garbage?

 

When “We The People” re-elected Barack Hussein Obama to a second term last November, we soundly agreed to HIS agenda. Not the agenda of “bottom feeding racist conselfishservative ass backwards white supremacists Koch Brothers A.L.E.C. controlled groups of morons”, guided by a bunch of “cash under the table from greedy wealthy caucasian special interest groups.”

 

☝☝☝☝☝

Did I cover everything thats wrong with American politics?

 

I don’t know about YOU, but I want safe roads and bridges. The Jobs bill passed. The sequester ended. Comprehensive Immigration Reform. Universal Background checks. Gun Reform. Climate Control measures in place. And of course ObamaCARES’

I WANT ObamaCARES!!

Hero Antoinette Tuff Talks Down School Gunman, Saves Countless Lives

By 

 

An armed gunman entered the McNair Learning Academy in Decatur, Georgia carrying an AK-47. Thankfully, Antoinette Tuff came to the rescue. The school clerk reportedly confronted the gunman in a calm way and gently helped him eventually surrender to police. She did so by explaining her life story and telling the man that everyone has the ability to overcome.

 

There’s no doubt that the gunman wanted to kill and injure. Instead of panicking, this hero was able to relate her story to the man and difuse the situation. She also utilized prayer to subdue the possible rampage.

 

At the end of the day, nobody was hurt in this incident. And it’s not hyperbole to suggest that this woman could have been the difference between this outcome and something comparable to Columbine.

Thank you EveryJoe.

Republicans are so certain Obamacare will be a disaster. They sound a lot like Republicans who were so certain the Bush tax cuts would bring ever-lasting prosperity and the Iraq war would pay for itself.

 

Joe Heck is sorely mistaken. The few businesses who offer heath insurance that do not meet AHCA requirements will have to offer better plans but will pay less for those plans, plus these same employees generally offer multiple plans to choose from, most exceed AHCA rules. My plan right now costs $1500/month, it will go down 60% because of the AHCA. AND there are over 100k employees on company plan! So much for more than 50! Those without will now have to offer plans!

An affordable college education is a cornerstone of middle-class security. But while incomes for typical families have grown by only 16%, the average tuition has more than tripled.

 

That’s why President Obama will be in New York and Pennsylvaniatomorrow, visiting campuses and pushing to make college more affordable.
