I am showing this interview with ABC News’George Stephanopoulos of killer cop Darren Wilson because it is imperative you see the lies and misinformation first hand, from the mouth of a live breathing Sociopath.

 

Sociopath definition, a person with a psychopathic personality whose behavior is antisocial, often criminal, and who lacks a sense of moral responsibility, or social conscience.

 

After watching this interview, you will see the definition fits Darren Wilson.

Darren Wilson speaks publicly for the first time

 

 

ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos sat down with Darren Wilson in the Ferguson police officer‘s first interview since the shooting death of Michael Brown.

 

In an exclusive interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, police officer Darren Wilson breaks his silence about the shooting of Michael Brown.

 

Wilson told ABC News that he did not execute Brown on August 9 but was in fear for his life and was just doing his job.

 

Wilson told ABC News that Brown reached into his car and grabbed his gun. He described how Brown charged toward him and he felt that he had to shoot Michael Brown.

The interview comes a day after the grand jury’s decision not to indict Wilson in an incident that sparked national outcry.

 

Wilson did say that he was sorry for the loss of life but he would not do anything different that day. He says he has a clean conscience over his actions that day.

Now that you’ve watched ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos guide this killer cop through his first of many scripted TV interviews, you’ll see what a lying piece of feces is and how the pile of feces goes about telling it’s side of the story. Problem with this set up is there is no representation for the murdered 18 year old Michael Brown. No family members present. No legal representation present. Nobody to speak for Michael Brown. A bit unfair, don’t you think?

This version of Bob McCulloch announcing the killer cop will walk scott free is interesting because it shows the crowd in Ferguson as it listens to the lies and misinformation out of the mouth of a racist prosecutor….who worked for the defense instead of the prosecution…..reminiscent of Angela Corey.

Riot as the Language of the Unheard: Ferguson Protests Set to Continue In Fight For Racial Justice

Published on Nov 25, 2014

http://democracynow.org – “It is not enough for me to stand before you tonight and condemn riots. It would be morally irresponsible for me to do that without, at the same time, condemning the contingent, intolerable conditions that exist in our society. These conditions are the things that cause individuals to feel that they have no other alternative than to engage in violent rebellions to get attention. And I must say tonight that a riot is the language of the unheard.” Those were the words of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. in March 1968, weeks before he was assassinated. Today parts of Ferguson are still burning after a night of protests following the grand jury’s decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson, who killed Michael Brown. At least a dozen shops in the Ferguson area have been broken into and burned. A number of businesses burned for hours before firefighters arrived. We speak to Rev. Osagyefo Sekou of the Fellowship of Reconciliation and Jelani Cobb, director of the Africana Studies Institute at the University of Connecticut and a contributor to the New Yorker. “For over 100 days [the protesters in Ferguson] have been primarily nonviolent in their approach to this,” Sekou says. “They gave the system a chance, and the system broke their heart.”

 

 

 

On Tuesday, Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson sat down with ABC News, speaking publicly for the first time on the shooting death of Michael Brown. He described his side of the altercation, saying there was ‘no way’ Brown had his hands up when he was fatally shot.

 

Wilson says he couldn’t have done anything differently in his confrontation to have prevented the 18-year-old’s shooting death.

 

A grand jury on Monday declined to indict Wilson on any charges, setting off a night of angry protests, looting and gunfire in the Ferguson area.

 

ABC’s George Stephanopoulos tweet-bragged about landing the first interview with cleared Ferguson cop Darren Wilson.

 

“Just finished a more than hourlong interview with Officer Darren Wilson. No question off limits,” tweeted the co-host of Good Morning America on Tuesday.

 

 

The interview led off World News with David Muir Tuesday night, with Wilson insisting to Stephanopoulos that he had no choice but to shoot, Brown was huge and intimidating, that he had grabbed Wilson’s gun and punched him, and that he, Wilson, feared Brown would kill him.

 

When asked if he would be haunted by the incident, Wilson said, “I don’t think it’s a haunting; it’s always going to be something that happened.

 

“The reason I have a clean conscience is I know I did my job right,” he said.

 

Wilson said he asked himself if he could legally shoot Brown. “I thought, ‘I have to. If I don’t, he will kill me if he gets to me.’ “

 

 

Over the weekend, CNN’s Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter reported that Stephanopoulos was one of several major news anchors who had met secretly with Wilson for off-the-record chats aimed at persuading the officer, then in hiding, to grant his first interview after the grand jury decision was rendered.

 

Stephanopoulos appears to be the winner of the coveted “get” but others who were angling included Matt Lauer of NBC, Scott Pelley of CBS, and Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon of CNN.

 

The get is likely to add to ABC’s bragging rights over GMA, which has toppled NBC’s long-leading Today show in the morning-show ratings.

 

And it’s a major coup for Stephanopoulos, who first came to America’s attention as a young, brash political operative in 1992.

 

As communications director during Bill Clinton’s first winning presidential campaign, and early in Clinton’s first term, Stephanopoulos was known for testy jousting with reporters, until he got fed up and quit. Later, in his memoir, All Too Human: A Political Education, he described White House pressures so great he became depressed and his face broke out in hives.

Now lets get to some facts. 

911 Convenience Store Call Tapes:

The 911 call from the convenience store owner, that set in motion Michael Brown’s murder, you know the 911 call that the convenience store owner publicly said he never made, the same 911 call that Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson said on August 9th, the day Michael Brown was murdered by killer cop Darren Wilson, was never made to Ferguson 911 dispatch…where are those 911 call tapes? Since Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson, NOW says that 911 call was what alerted the Ferguson police to Michael Brown. Where is THAT 911 call tape?

 

The Ferguson PD dispatch has released radio chatter describing exactly what Michael Brown was wearing, but there is NO 911 CALL FROM THE CONVENIENCE STORE OWNER saying he was robbed or strong armed in any manner. WHY? It took ‘em 6 weeks to cook up this bull shit.

 

Grand Jury:

It has been said by County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch that the juror’s on this grand jury met a grand total of 25 days. It took ‘em over 100 days to reach a decision, although they met to discuss this case 25 days total. Mmmmm. Why? Did it take 75 days to create a plausible lie about the facts, so Darren Wilson could be exonerated? Here’s the thing about a grand jury, they are not the end all be all when it comes to bringing an accused to trial. A grand jury is charged with the responsibility of determining IF THERE IS ENOUGH EVIDENCE TO TAKE DARREN WILSON TO TRIAL. Not guilt or innocence or probable cause. 

 

Let me repeat that: A grand jury is supposed to find enough evidence to warrant a trial. Thats ALL. If there is enough evidence for a trial, they decide to indict based on THAT reason alone. Grand juries do not give a flying you know what about guilt, innocence or probable cause.  IS THERE ENOUGH EVIDENCE FOR A TRIAL is all a grand jury is concerned with finding for a indict decision.

 

Hope that is crystal clear to all you misinformed misguided Fox News listeners.

 

Another fact: a grand jury is not the last stop in taking an accused to trial. A grand jury can decide not to indict and a “county prosecutor” can decide to try a case at his/her discretion. In most cases a grand jury is not even convened, instead a preliminary hearing is held before a judge. Bob McCulloch very well could still take killer cop Darren Wilson to trial. Yes. I Know. A pipe dream of mine.

 

I guess I am done with this. The disgust I feel for AmeriKKKa is palatable.

Enough is Enough! Secure Justice for Mike Brown & Advance Police Reform

Mothers should never have to fear that our children could come to harm at the hands of those charged with protecting them.  And yet, today’s refusal by a St. Louis County grand jury to indict Officer Darren Wilson in the killing of Mike Brown is an apparent miscarriage of justice. It reinforces the all too familiar narrative of lives cut down by those entrusted with protecting and serving – a story of racial profiling and police brutality.

 

The numbers do not lie:  Black people are three times more likely than White people to be killed when they encounter the police in the US, and Black teenagers are far likelier to be killed by police than White teenagers.

Across the country, we need a higher standards of policing, with strengthened accountability mechanisms, and critical reforms that end biased racial profiling, police brutality, and militarized policing targeting African American and Latino youth, families, and communities.

 

*Join us — and ColorOfChange — in calling on the U.S. Department of Justice to take action by signing on our open letter. Just fill out the form to add your name. You can also add a personal comment using the box provided.

 

Here’s the open letter we’ll send to the Obama administration and US Department of Justice.

 

Dear President Barack Obama and US Attorney General Eric Holder,

 

I urge you to do everything in your power to secure justice for Mike Brown and an end to the nationwide crisis of discriminatory police violence. A St. Louis Grand Jury has refused to indict Officer Darren Wilson who targeted and killed 18-year-old Black teenager, Mike Brown, more than 3 months ago.

 

Numerous eye-witnesses say Mike Brown was brutally murdered — fatally shot more than 6 times as the 18-year-old teenager stood with his hands in the air. His family called it an execution. Now, Missouri Governor Nixon, County Attorney Robert McCulloch, and Missouri law enforcement have failed our country.

 

I call on you to arrest and prosecute Officer Darren Wilson to the fullest extent of federal law, and to defend protesters 1st amendment right to free speech. Unless you take action, Officer Wilson will remain free and law enforcement across the country will be vindicated in their discriminatory and violent targeting of Black Americans.

 

No parent should ever experience the agony of losing a child to discriminatory police violence — only to be denied justice for their devastating loss. But according to FBI statistics, law enforcement kill Black Americans at nearly the same rate of Jim Crow Era lynching. This devastating crisis cannot continue.

 

We are in a historic time; Mike Brown’s death has inspired a powerful, youth led movement to end the nationwide crisis of police brutality and what you do in this moment will have a major impact on the future of racial profiling and police brutality in America. As President and US Attorney General, you have both the power and responsibility to secure justice for Mike Brown and systemic reforms to law enforcement. I urge you to take definitive action to indict Officer Darren Wilson and to overhaul the policies and practices that led to Mike Brown’s death, as well as those that perpetuate the nationwide crisis of discriminatory policing.

 

Sincerely,

[YOUR NAME]

 

BREAKING – No indictment. Enough is enough.

MomsRising.org

Just last Thursday, days before a grand jury failed to indict the killer of 18-year-old Michael Brown and just 6 miles from my home, unarmed Akai Gurley was shot and killed without warning by the New York Police Department. The officer who shot Akai told police officials that he was “nervous.” Akai’s 2-year-old daughter will never see her father again, and neither will his family.

 

Mothers should never have to fear that our loved ones could come to harm at the hands of those charged with protecting them. And yet, the reality is that 18-year-old Michael Brown’s death is just one chapter in the ongoing and growing narrative of lives impacted by racial profiling and police brutality.

 

The numbers don’t lie: Studies show that, even though White Americans outnumber Black Americans fivefold, Black people are three times more likely than White people to be killed when they encounter the police in the US, and Black teenagers are far likelier to be killed by police than White teenagers.

 

*Make your voice heard! In the wake of the failure to indict the police officer who shot and killed unarmed teen Michael Brown, we call on the Department of Justice and President Obama to take definitive action

 

It’s now up to the Department of Justice and President Obama to take definitive action to indict Officer Darren Wilson, as well as to advance higher standards of policing, with strengthened accountability mechanisms, and critical reforms that end racial profiling, police brutality, and militarized policing targeting African American and Latino youth, families, and communities.

 

All over the country, there have been a slew of unarmed African American and Latino youth and parents killed by police, including:

 

  • Eric Garner, husband and father, who was choked to death in New York.
  • John Crawford, who was shot to death when he picked up a toy gun that was for sale in an Ohio Walmart.
  • Seventeen-year-old unarmed Jesús Huerta was shot to death while handcuffed in the back of a police car.
  • Eighteen-year-old unarmed Ramarley Graham who was shot to death in Bronx, NY

 

Racially-motivated police violence has no place in law enforcement. Yet the St. Louis Post Dispatch‘s editorial board found that all too often racial profiling is done by Missouri law enforcement and the stats are getting worse over time. Here’s what the St. Louis Post Dispatch’s editorial board wrote:

 

“Last year, for the 11th time in the 14 years that data has been collected, the disparity index that measures potential racial profiling by law enforcement in the state got worse. Black Missourians were 66 percent more likely in 2013 to be stopped by police, and blacks and Hispanics were both more likely to be searched, even though the likelihood of finding contraband was higher among whites.

 

…In Ferguson, the city where Michael died, the police in 2013 pulled over blacks at a 37 percent higher rate than whites compared to their relative populations. Black drivers were twice as likely to be searched and twice as likely to be arrested compared to white drivers.”

 

Racial profiling and excessive use of force by the police in Missouri, and in other communities across the nation, must end and perpetrators must be held accountable.

 

Enough is enough.

 

At the national level, we need higher standards of policing, strengthened accountability mechanisms, and critical reforms to end: Racial profiling, police brutality, and militarized policing targeting African American and Latino youth, families, and communities throughout our country.

 

*Don’t forget to sign on with us to say: Families call on the U.S. Department of Justice and the Obama administration to take action now: MomsRising.org

 

Together, we are a strong voice for women and families

Memo to Reporters Covering the Protests in Ferguson

 

ColorOfChange.org calls for fair and honest media coverage of Michael Brown protests

 

November 24, 2014

For Immediate Release

 

Contact:

 

Madison Donzis, madison@fitzgibbonmedia.com, 210.488.6220

 

CJ Frogozo, cj@fitzgibbonmedia.com, 310.570.2622

 

New York, NY — ColorOfChange.org, the nation’s largest online civil rights organization, is urging both local and national media to be particularly mindful of their coverage of the protests in Ferguson, Missouri and across the country in the wake of the grand jury’s impending decision regarding Officer Darren Wilson.

 

Recognition of the dangers posed by a hostile media climate for Black people is crucial at this very important juncture in our nation’s history. In the wake of yet another young life lost to police violence, hundreds of thousands have taken to the streets to express their outrage and demand better of law enforcement, as well as our justice system. This is a constitutional right. Our media should aid in the protection of those rights, rather than contribute to a racist drumbeat against them.

 

It is also important to recognize how our media impacts the perceptions of its audience. Research shows there are dire consequences when stereotypical images of Black people rule the day; less attention from doctors, harsher sentences from judges, and abusive treatment by police, just to name a few. Rather than feeding into the hostile media climate that contributed to the deaths of Michael Brown, Renisha McBride, Eric Garner, and so many others, we should use this opportunity to forge a fair and humanizing media landscape for Black people.

 

We ask that any journalists reporting on the important events in Ferguson and across the country take the following into consideration:

 

Cultural bias in our media and society persistently excuses the name calling of people of color, resulting in very real, sometimes deadly consequences. We must be vigilant in rooting out the use of coded, racialized language in news coverage. To be clear, the protesters in Ferguson are exercising their constitutional rights. More importantly, they are human beings, not the “thugs,” “rioters,” “criminals,” or “animals” our media has routinely described them as. Yet, when a predominantly white mob erupted into a full scale riot during a pumpkin festival in New Hampshire last month, the media called them “rowdy, mischievous revelers.” The double standard would be laughable if weren’t so incredibly dangerous.

 

Name calling on the part of our news media spinsa narrative of dehumanization and degradation that threatens the lives of communities of color, one not unlike that which led to the Michael Brown and Eric Garner tragedies in the first place. The demonization of Black folks and their allies contributes to a hostile, dangerous media landscape that actually threatens lives.

 

The state violence on display in Ferguson against protesters is inexcusable, and should concern us all. The over-militarized police there waved and pointed guns at protesters and drove through neighborhoods in tanks, unnecessarily heightening an already-tense situation. But too often, journalists and news organizations turn Black communities into enemy combatants in their own neighborhoods by focusing almost exclusively on alleged acts of violence perpetrated by a small minority of protesters, crafting a deceptive narrative that vilifies Black people and their allies, and threatens their lives.

 

Here’s the truth: for years, Department of Defense programs have supplied local law enforcement in places like Ferguson with the same weaponry used by US Armed Forces in war zones. Rather than devoting their energies to building a healthy relationship with the communities they serve, precincts across the country are loading up on armored tanks and tear gas. It’s an incredibly dangerous, unhealthy state of affairs that deserves a prominent place in any substantive conversation about the unrest in Ferguson.

 

Black people are not to blame for police brutality, nor do they deserve it. Yet, media outlets, and talking heads like former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, point to so-called “black-on-black crime” as an excuse for the consequence-less murder of Black people by law enforcement. As Michael Eric Dyson eloquently explained to Mayor Giuliani on Meet the Press last Sunday, the issue at hand is that America has a serious problem with letting white people get away with the murder of Black people, especially agents of the state like Officer Darren Wilson. To somehow point the finger at Black people and blame them for their own oppression and injustice is not a valid critique. Rather, as Dyson asserted, it only exemplifies “the defensive mechanism of white supremacy.”

 

The VAST majority of Ferguson protesters are peaceful. Yet somehow, the stories coming out of many major media outlets paints a picture of total lawlessness, undermining the real work being done on the ground to bring attention to the very legitimate concerns of hundreds of thousands of people. The implication is that these efforts are largely violent, senseless, and deserve to be dealt with harshly. This could not be further from the truth. These stereotypical portrayals of Black people shape perceptions that, when acted upon, can mean real life harm for Black people.

 

Ferguson protesters have taken to the streets to assert that Black lives matter; that Black folks cannot be killed with impunity. The suggestion that these motivations lack legitimacy are unacceptable and contribute to a hostile media climate for Black people.

 

The opinions of protesters, activists, and Michael Brown’s parents matter, too. The situation in Ferguson has ignited an intense, national conversation around a host of very important topics. It is imperative that our news media present fair, even-handed coverage. The marginalization or complete shutting out of the voices and opinions of those sympathetic to the concerns of protestors or victims of police violence is all too common, and totally unacceptable.

 

Structural racism tells the FULL story. Yet, oftentimes our media conversation begins and ends with individual acts of racism, outright dismissals of racism, or the notion that racism now exists in our cultural rearview, and is no longer relevant to today’s world. According to a recent report from Race Forward, the majority of today’s news media is not systemically aware, ignoring or omitting engagement with the policies and practices that lead to the racial disparities at the heart of situations like the one in Ferguson. It is critical that we inject the realities of structural racism into the national conversation, and hold media outlets that refuse to do so accountable.

Two More Black Males Murdered In Three Days By Local PD. Barack Hussein Obama Is Silent As A Church Mouse.

The MilitantNegro SoapBox™: Why Is OUR President Of The United States Silent On The Black Genocide In AmeriKKKa?

 

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Nitorioussoapbox

In three times days Mr. Akai Gurley was shot to death as he and his girlfriend of seven years walked up her apartment stairwell in New York City Friday evening…by NYC cops. Mr. Gurley was unarmed. Yesterday young Tamir Rice was gunned down as he sat in a playground swing, because he was playing with an Airsoft toy BB gun. Remember John Crawford? He was murdered for holding a toy BB gun inside a Walmart store. Oh….grandfather Eric Garner was choked to death on a public NY City street, for allegedly selling loose cigarettes…..also unarmed.

 

I can/could do this for days,  listing the entire amount of names of Black males killed by racist hateful law enforcement officers across AmeriKKKa. The list of names is endless. Unarmed Black men and boys. Massacred. Unarmed. Kajieme Powell had a pocket knife and was shot to death in St. Louis by 2 cops at least 25 feet away. Ezell Ford, killed in California, by cops, and of course he was unarmed.

 

Do you remember who James Holmes is? A caucasian boy who walked into a theater in Aurora, Colorado, and slaughtered 12 humans, injured 70 others. He walked out to his car to reload and was taken ALIVE. He was armed to the teeth. Not ONE round fired at him during his capture. NOT ONE.

I have had the unfortunate experience of coming across a few racist dumbasses on social media who have the lamest excuses for why racist killer cops are justified for the Black Genocide that is perpetrated on Americans of Color. By the end of these exchanges, these racist cracka asses are sorry they woke up that morning. Online, as in real life, I am nothing nice when fucked with by idiots.

 

Now onto this guy……..

This is President Barack Hussein Obama. You know him. You Love Him. You Respect Him. At least I used to respect him. He’s not to blame for racist law enforcement on a local level murdering Black males. He is to blame foe standing by and doing nothing. Now I’ve had it explained to me that it was vital The President did nothing to divide the Democratic Party before or during the 2014 mid terms. See, it was told to me that Barack had to unify the party in order for election night victory to be realized. EPIC FAILURE. He lost his ass and still pissed off loyal supporters such as myself, by remaining silent and playing politics with this Black Genocide.

 

A Leader can never afford to turn his/her back on any section of the population, no matter what the time of year happens to be….election time or not. Barack has had more time, and more concern for Syria, Iraq, China, TPP, Keystone XL, anything but Ferguson, NYC, LA, Ohio, Chicago, D.C. (Miriam Carey, remember her?). It seems that our 44th President, being a Black man with Black children, has more important things to consider than the systematic murder of unarmed Black males in HIS America.

 

OK. The mid terms are over and it’s a “safe” time politically. You lost all you could possibly lose on “NO”vember 4th, 2014. So why in hell are you still silent as more young, old, Black males are slaughtered in the streets, on the playgrounds, while shopping in Walmart, walking up a dark stairwell with a girlfriend?

As We Wait on Ferguson Grand Jury Decision, How Ferguson showed us the truth about police.

 

 

 

Police Are the Problem – Anonymous

 

 

 

Fighting to tell the story in Ferguson

 

 

Barack Obama has remained silent on the fad sweeping the nation, the fad of shooting unarmed Black males, with little or no provocation what so ever. Barack has stood by, busy elsewhere, while Gov. Jay Nixon has mobilized the National Guard, The FBI and tons of local law enforcement agencies, all to “combat” peaceful protesters. Barack is silently watching a Grand Jury take over 100 days to decide if Darren Wilson was justified in shooting unarmed Michael Brown, 6 times…shooting AT Michael Brown at least 10 times….or if Wilson is guilty of unlawfully discharging his service weapon. 

 

Not one word from our President, as American Black males are shot down at least 3 a week, by law enforcement that is charged with serving & protecting. Barack sent Eric Holder, Attorney General at The Department Of Justice, in the days immediately after Michael Brown was murdered by Darren Wilson, to Ferguson…..for a photo-op. The FBI has been on the ground in Ferguson, but this is the same FBI who asked MLK to commit suicide. Not a lot of trust there, now is there?

 

I am disappointed in Barack Hussein Obama and to be honest, the Democratic Party has lost my vote forever. Jay Nixon, the Governor of Missouri, is a Democrat. Barack has failed me on this issue and it’s a very important issue as more unarmed innocent Black males are killed by racist caucasian cops. I no longer support Barack Hussein Obama. No longer care for him or his administration, or his First Family. The First Family are safely behind the White House walls while the rest of Black America are open to instant death at any time of the day.

 

Not being one to ever bite my tongue or hold my words, this administration has been disgraced by this Black Genocide, by Stop & Frisk and by the war on People Of Color. I am ashamed to be an American, and plan to leave & renounce my American citizenship in 2016.

 

I have had enough of The United States of AmeriKKKa. She does not give a fuck about me. Or MY kind.

Health Insurance Enrollment: Open Enrollment Is November 15th, 2014 Until February 15th, 2015.

From Nels New Day:

Health Care on the Chopping Block?

 

Just a couple of days after Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) became leaders of the 114th Congress, they declared open season on health care for the poor and middle class. Their starting salvo was announced in a Wall Street Journal op-ed in which they began with eliminating benefits for workers employed fewer than 40 hours a week. In typical GOP-speak, they said that this change would provide employees with “more hours and better pay.” In 2013, 43.8 percent of all workers, 60.9 million people, were employed at 40 hours or more. The question is whether members of Congress would lose their insurance if health care guidelines change. The people wanting the increase in hours worked to get health care, congressional legislators, work about two days each week. They seem to be saying that they would work harder if they didn’t get health care unless they worked five days a week.

 

Conservatives have been jumping with joy ever since Jonathan Gruber, self-proclaimed architect of the Affordable Care Act, proclaimedthat it was the “stupidity of the American voter” that allowed the bill to become a law. Far from being an “architect,” Gruber served as a consultant to produce cost estimates of provisions and giving technical advice based on his overseeing similar reforms in Massachusetts. According to Gruber, Democrats kept the Congressional Budget Office from scoring the mandate as a tax and hide the provision that young and healthy beneficiaries would subsidize premiums for the sick.

 

Scoring the mandate as a “tax” would not have changed the estimate of increasing revenue by $4 billion in 2016 and approximately $5 billion per year for the next eight years. There was also no lack of transparency about everyone, healthy or sick, paying into the insurance, and the media incessantly covered this fact. AP reporter Erica Werner clearly explained that premiums varied only on age, geographic area, and tobacco use. The president told AARP in 2009 before the law was passed:

 

“[Y]ou get the healthy and the young people alongside the not-so-healthy and the older people. But we’re all kind of spreading our risk, because each of us don’t know at any given time what might happen.”

 

Gruber also complained that the law does little or nothing to control health care costs. Yet four years after the act passed, projections for health care in 2019 is $500 billion less than projected at the time that it passed. As costs increase in many other areas, a study of 48 urban areas shows an average 0.2 decrease in the “silver” plans. Costs seem to be all over the place from an increase of 28 percent in Anchorage (AK) to a reduction of 24 percent in Jackson (MS). At the same time, the government paid $104 billion less in 2014 subsidies than originally predicted. The country has seven million more people than insured before ACA, the government pays less than predicted, and the rise in healthcare costs has dramatically slowed.

 

Gruber has apologized for his statements, saying that they were just “off the cuff” at academic conferences. It may not be enough to save the millions of dollars that he was scheduled to make. Eight states hired Gruber to help design their health exchanges after he banked nearly $400,000 in 2009 through contracts with the Department of Health and Human Services. He and a few colleagues had state contracts for $1.6 million over seven years from Michigan ($481,000), Minnesota ($329,000), Vermont ($400,000) and Wisconsin ($400,000). He also advised Colorado, Connecticut, Maine and West Virginia.

 

Because of ACA’s requirement that insurers must spend at least 80 percent of premium costs on medical care, 6.8 million families are getting average rebates of $80 totaling almost $2 billion. That’s one reason premiums are being lowered. Subsidies are the other reason. If the Supreme Court denies these subsidies in states without state exchanges, people can see their insurance premiums increase by about 75 percent.

 

As people line up to register for health care this week, the U.S. Supreme Court may join the conservatives in Congress to kill off the law—and many people at the same time. Paul Krugman called the lawsuit to be argued this year as death by typo. The Supreme Court is set to determine if the word “state” in one sentence of the 2200-page law means that poor people won’t receive subsidies in the states that don’t have their own government-run marketplace. Krugman wrote:

 

“Judges who support this cruel absurdity aren’t stupid; they know what they’re doing.  What they are, instead, is corrupt, willing to pervert the law to serve political masters.”

 

Over two decades ago, the conservatives supported single-payer health insurance, but that was before the Democrats accepted the idea. When Congress started working on the plan in the president’s early years, the Democrats attempted to mollify the GOP by incorporating their ideas into the law. After the GOP pushed the Democratic legislators in a corner, the law received only one GOP vote, a representative. Current problems show that single-payer health care would be the best for almost all the people in the United States.

 

Megan Rothbauer’s $50,000 bill is one example of why the U.S. needs a single-payer plan. Up-to-date on her insurance payments, the Wisconsin woman went into cardiac arrest and was unconscious when she was rushed to a hospital. The place where the ambulance took Rothbauer, 30, didn’t take her insurance although one three blocks away did. Unfortunately, she wasn’t able to tell them where they should take her. Without the Affordable Care Act, she would have owed another $100,000. A single-payer plan would have kept her from the possibly of becoming destitute, but Rothbauer is now facing bankruptcy. Blue Cross Blue Shield stated that the fault is with the hospital. The hospital stated that they could have charged her more but didn’t. Medical experts indicate that this is a common situation.

 

Even knowing what hospital is in a network doesn’t always help. When probate attorney Jeffrey Craig Hopper was smashed in the face with a baseball while coaching Little League in Austin (TX), his wife made sure she took Hopper to a hospital that is part of their insurance network. The ER doctor sent the couple a bill for more than $700; he could do this because he was outside the approved network of physicians. Again, this is fairly common: in more than half of Humana’s Texas hospitals, none of the ER doctors is within Humana’s network.  The same situation goes for almost half the Texas hospitals with United Healthcare insurance and about a fifth of Blue Cross-accepting hospitals. Preparing for the next emergency, Jennifer Hopper couldn’t find even five doctors who would take their insurance at hospitals her plan uses in Austin.

 

For the fifth consecutive year, the United States, the richest nation in the world, ranked last in industrialized nation’s health care systems. The only industrialized nation without universal health care, the U.S. has the highest percentage of U.S. residents not seeking necessary medical care because they can’t afford it. Thirty-seven percent of Americans said they didn’t fill a prescription, visit a doctor, or get recommended medical care because they worried about the cost compared to only four percent of people in the United Kingdom.

 

The United States has the highest infant mortality and deaths possibly preventable with access to effective health care. It’s also at the bottom of “efficiency” because of the time and money spent dealing with insurance administration, lack of communication among health care providers, and duplicative medical testing. In “equity,” the 39 percent of adults with below-average incomes in the U.S. who could not visit doctors because of costs puts the U.S. also at the bottom, compared with the less than one in ten who have the problem in the UK, Sweden, Canada, and Norway. People in the U.S spent $8,508 per person on healthcare in 2011 compared to $3,406 per person in the UK, but the higher cost of health care in the U.S. doesn’t equate to better care.

 

The data that put the United States last was collected before ACA went into effect. Even if the Supreme Court destroys “Obamacare,” the nation many have a brief shining time of health care for residents in Democratically-controlled states. Even so, six million of the poorest residents lack health care if GOP states refuse to expand Medicaid. A negative Supreme Court decision could triple or quadruple that number.

 

In Oregon, Monica Wehby, the GOP candidate who just lost to Sen. Jeff Merkley, wants to be boss of the Oregon Health Authority. The day after the election, she called newly re-elected Democratic Gov. John Kitzhaber to ask for the job. The agency runs the state’s Medicaid program for 300,000 low-income Oregonians and may also administer Cover Oregon, the health insurance exchange, which Wehby wants to destroy. Her campaign slogan was “Keep Your Doctor. Change Your Senator.” Before she ran for the senate, she starred in a 2009 nationwide commercial warning about the plan’s dangers. The job would also give her a serious hit in salary: in 2013, she made $861,479 as a pediatric neurosurgeon for Legacy Health Systems, and the previous OHA director made $173,000. She says that she just wants to “stay involved.”

 

One question in the Supreme Court argument about ACA is whether the business-friendly justices will go against the money-makers in the insurance and health industries. They’re making more money, and they like it.

As in the past couple of years, the Supreme Court is addressing voting rights, health care, and possibly marriage equality. Millions of people will be waiting until their pronouncements next June.

Thank you Nels New Day.

You’re invited to join open enrollment this Friday, November 14th, 2014.  Open enrollment period for the health insurance marketplaces under the Affordable Care Act is from November 14th, 2014 until February 15th, 2015.

2015 Open Enrollment

 

The Open Enrollment period for 2015 coverage is November 15, 2014 to February 15, 2015.

 

If you haven’t enrolled in coverage by then, you generally can’t buy Marketplace health coverage for 2015 until the next Open Enrollment period for coverage the following year.

 

If you’re enrolled in a 2014 Marketplace plan, your benefit year ends December 31, 2014. To continue health coverage in 2015, you can renew your current health plan or choose a new health plan through the Marketplace during the 2015 Open Enrollment period.

 

If you don’t have health coverage during 2015, you may have to pay a fee. The fee in 2015 is higher than it was in 2014 — 2% of your income or $325 per adult/$162.50 per child, whichever is more.

 

Enrollment and coverage start dates

 

During Open Enrollment, if you enroll:

 

  • Between the 1st and 15th days of the month, your coverage starts the first day of the next month.
  • Between the 16th and the last day of the month, your coverage starts the first day of the second following month. So if you enroll on January 16, your coverage starts on March 1.

 

You may buy Marketplace insurance outside Open Enrollment only if you qualify for aSpecial Enrollment Period due to a qualifying life event such as marriage, birth or adoption of a child, or loss of other health coverage. Learn more about how you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period.

 

You can enroll in Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) any time. There is no limited enrollment period for these programs. You can apply any time. If you’re qualified, you can enroll immediately.

 

If you own or operate a small business, you can start offering coverage to your employees at any time.

The state Health Insurance Marketplaces will open on Saturday Nov. 15 and stay open through Feb. 15, 2015. As was the case the first time around last year, if you buy insurance on your own, this will be your only chance to enroll in or change your plan until next year (with a few exceptions, such as if you lose other coverage midyear).

 

 

Here’s what you need to know to get ready.

 

You can window shop ahead of time

HealthCare.gov, which handles shopping for 37 states (look up your state on this interactive map) started a window shopping function over the weekend. We recommend you use it. Without logging into it or creating an account, you can put in info about your household size and income, get a quick estimate of your 2015 subsidy (if any), and start shopping and comparing plans. But you won’t be able to buy a plan for real until Nov. 15.

 

We played with the window shopping tool a bit and were impressed—especially in comparison to 2014. Back then, in order to see the health plans available in your state, you had to create an account, get your identity verified, and fill out an application that was 76 screens long.

 

This time around, the plan preview feature is chock-full of helpful explanations that appear just when you need them. For instance, when it’s time to enter your household income, you’ll see a link to click to explain how to count that income if you’re not sure.

 

You can see the plans within a couple of screens, and then you can filter them by multiple factors, such as the name of the insurer, the size of the deductible, and the monthly premium. And if you see a plan you like, you can save or e-mail to yourself a link that will take you straight back there on your next visit.

 

Many of the state-run marketplaces also allow window shopping. As of today, they included California, Colorado, Connecticut, the District of Columbia, Idaho, Maryland, Rhode Island, and Washington. We couldn’t find plan previews on the Massachusetts, Minnesota, or New York sites, and the marketplaces in Hawaii, Kentucky, and Vermont were down for maintenance.

 

Collect these documents and info

You’re going to need them to fill out your application.

  • Your most recent income tax return.
  • Social Security number and birth dates for everyone in your household who’s going to be buying insurance with you. (If you’re confused about this, just collect info for everyone who is on your household’s tax return with you.)
  • If you’re self-employed or didn’t file taxes last year, whatever information you have on your income and business expenses.
  • Log in and password for your marketplace account, if you already have one.

 

If you want your insurance to start on Jan. 1, you have to sign up for a plan by Dec. 15

You can sign up later, but if you don’t have insurance now, you’ll be waiting another month or two for it to start. And if you do have insurance now that you’d like to replace with something else, you’ll be automatically re-enrolled in your existing plan if you don’t change to another one by Dec. 15. You can still switch out if you do it by Feb. 15 but you’ll be stuck with your old plan until at least February or March.

 

If you want a plan that has specific doctors in it, do some advance research

Many marketplace plans have smaller doctor and hospital networks than people expected. If you found yourself in a plan that your favorite doctors didn’t take, now’s the time to fix that. The fastest way to get this done is to call the doctor’s billing office and ask what marketplace plans it accepts.

 

Tell your uninsured friends about open enrollment

Nine out of 10 uninsured Americans don’t know open enrollment is coming up, according to a recent poll by the Kaiser Family Foundation. And more than half of them have no idea that financial help with insurance is available if they have low and moderate incomes. Do them a favor and let them know.

The Absurd New Supreme Court Case That Could Kill Obamacare (w/ Ian Millhiser)

 

Published on Nov 12, 2014

Ian Millhiser of the Center For American Progress and author of the forthcoming book Injustices: The Supreme Court’s History of Comforting the Comfortable and Afflicting the Afflicted, explains the insane legal reasoning behind the Halbig V King case, why even a “textualist approach”, how the insurance market works, is precedent irrelevant when it comes to Obamacare? Will Roberts go with the four far right wing Justices and the horrifying human costs of overturning Obamacare.
