HILLARY'S ENCOUNTER WITH PROTESTER'S SHOE

Hillary Clinton’s Las Vegas adventure Thursday might be good training if the Democrat runs for president and has to dodge critics — in this case one armed with a shoe.
A female protester threw the footwear at Clinton near the start of her speech at a metal recycling conference as well as some papers that fluttered in the air like wings, prompting the former Secretary of State to declare: “Is that a bat?”
The protestor was taken under custody by law enforcement without resistance.
Rumors swirl about what provoked the protester.  Hillary Clinton's involvement as Secretary of State with the Benghazi tragedy is linked to the incident.
Check out the video for the shoe flinging moment with Hillary:

THE HUMAN IMPACT OF MEDICAID EXPANSION IN VIRGINIA

As the left and right draw battle lines about Medicaid expansion, perhaps Virginians should be concerned about the impact of hundreds of thousands of new patients on health care facilities in the Commonwealth.

Currently, Virginia has about one million citizens receiving Medicaid benefits.  The proposed expansion plan would dramatically increase the number of individuals receiving Medicaid.  If expansion should occur, 400,000 new patients would flood Virginia's health care system and facilities.

Virginia's hospitals and primary care offices are in many cases struggling to keep up with overall patient load.  This includes patients on private insurance and individuals receiving government benefits, like Medicare, Tricare and Medicaid. So, the influx of new patients should be a concern for all Virginians, and not just those on Medicaid or Medicare.

Will Virginia have the capacity to serve current patients and 400,000 new Medicaid patients?  Lets quickly examine some underlying challenges:
  • Facilities:  One must consider how the slow economy has kept many hospitals from expanding bed capacity and purchasing equipment to keep pace with growth.  In addition, many medical laboratories are barely maintaining the ability to service patient test results.
  • Health providers:  Many see the constant call to hire nurses and other specialists.  The demand for physicians is escalating too.  Coupled with a increase in physician retirement and a decrease in medical school residency, the trend is not healthy for having enough care providers to deliver quality health care.
  • Fiscal threat:  These are perilous times for hospital and primary care administrators.  The financial impact of the Affordable Care Act is squeezing the ability of many to stay in business.  This is primarily due to significant cuts in reimbursement from Medicare and Medicare Advantage.  Lee County had to close their hospital due to financial failure.  And, there are other facilities looking for a financial life line.  For instance, Culpeper Regional Hospital is looking for a partnership with the University of Virginia Health System to save their bottom line.
Now, consider what will happen to 400,000 new Medicaid patients.  Will they receive the same choice and quality care as current Virginians?  The short answer is unfortunately - no.  
  • Loss of Choice:  New Medicaid patient's choice of physician will likely be deterred.  Currently, only 1 in 4 Virginia physicians will accept new Medicaid patients.  In addition, only 1 in 3 medical specialists will accept new patients.  This is due to cuts in federal reimbursement to doctors.  
  • Questionable Quality of Care:  Indigent patients traditionally use hospital emergency rooms for their point of access.  Statistics reveal a large majority of Medicaid patients do not use primary physicians to receive preventative care.  They continue to use emergency rooms for all level of care.  Thus, placing them at risk for repeated occurrence of urgent medical visits, which also places an increasing burden on hospital capacity and profitability.
In summary, Virginia's health care capacity is strained with current patients.  The addition of so many new Medicaid patients will severely impact the level of care for all Virginians, including individuals with private insurance and those with government benefits.  Perhaps it is time for the General Assembly to seriously address reforms to Medicaid to assure patients receive the care promised.  Then, consider whether medical facilities have the capacity, personnel and fiscal ability to provide quality health care for Virginians.

VIRGINIA CHAMBER BACK PEDDLES AWAY FROM MEDICAID EXPANSION

A statement released by the Virginia Chamber of Commerce indicates they are pushing away from advocating Medicaid expansion in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Governor McAuliffe has been depending on the Chamber to back expansion.  As McAuliffe has trucked around Virginia touting expansion, he has allied with the Virginia Chamber.  He thumped his chest with confidence saying the Chamber was the voice of business in Virginia, in support for Medicaid expansion.

Well, the wheels are coming off of McAuliffe's road show as the Virginia Chamber released a statement that they will no longer support Medicaid expansion in its current form.  The Chamber said expansion did not support their strategic plan called "Virginia Blueprint".  

In addition, Virginia Chamber President Barry DuVal said the General Assembly should work constructively to,
"...set aside any issue that may create an impasse and avoid jeopardizing Virginia's reputation as the nation's best managed state and the best state for business."
Now, why would the Virginia Chamber back peddle from expansion?  Most likely local governments in Virginia have given the Chamber an earful of grief.  Municipalities across Virginia are nearing a critical time when they need to know how to finalize their budgets.  City and county governments need to know within the next few weeks how much the state will provide for schools, public safety, etc.

Further, a public statement by Virginia Democrat Delegate, Sam Rasoul, gave credence to the Democrats tactics of using the budget as 'leverage' to push Medicaid expansion.

IS THE SOVIET BEAR UNSTOPPABLE?

We are witnessing the re-emergence of the Soviet bear of Asia.  Vladimir Putin is thumping his chest on the world stage while NATO and Barack Obama lob diplomacy and sanctions at a man that is hell bent on reclaiming the old Soviet states.

Whether the mainstream media reports this or not, Putin is on a roll.  To understand this, you need to get into the Soviet mindset of Putin.  At every turn he thumbs his nose at the West, especially Barack Obama.  When Obama and John Kerry were dropping the ball on what to do about Iran's nuclear threat, Putin struck a deal of inspections that the rest of the G8 supported.  When American intelligence leaker, Edward Snowden, needed a safe harbor from the U.S., Putin granted Snowden entry to Russia.  When Putin hosted the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russian athletes garnered almost as many medals as the United States.  These are just a few examples of how Putin has re-established his role on the world stage.  In essence, his resolve is stronger than ever.  He is on a roll.  And, now he is unleashing his grand plan of restoring the East bloc countries of Europe to, not Russian, but Soviet control.

Putin has been planning this Soviet reset for decades.  Recently, former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger recalled a discussion he had with Putin in St. Petersburg, Russia.  Putin at that time was Mayor of St. Petersburg. They were dining together during a speech by Russian President Gorbachev. The conversation was brief, but powerful.  Putin spoke sternly how the current Russian leadership was growing weak.  And, a return to the age of Soviet rule would return as a world power.  And, he planned to be a leader on the world stage.  Quite a lunch discussion, huh?

Does Putin know this is his time?  He knows the power of his military.  Putin also knows the weaknesses of Barack Obama.  He has met with Obama, heard Obama babble on the phone about sanctions and such.  Putin considers Obama a weak leader and almost a non-threat to what he has planned for Crimea, Ukraine and other old states.

Sanctions mean nothing to the swift actions of the Soviet bear.  Obama, Kerry and the whole diplomacy corps are neck deep in bureaucracy.  While Putin is deftly positioning his troops to use Crimea as a stepping stone to consume Ukraine.  Econonmic sanctions and such may take months to make any impact on Putin's Russia.  In the meantime, Putin will seize control of Ukraine in short order with his eyes set on other East bloc states as well.

What will it take to stop Putin?  He is an old Soviet, KGB man at heart.  He only will respond to force.  He has somewhat of sense of his place as a "world" leader, yet sanctions mean almost nothing to him.  It will take the unified voice of the now nervous Eastern European countries to demand military troops and direct confrontation to hold back advancing Russian troops.  In fact, if Putin moves fast enough, he may capture more territory before an effective military force may be in place to counter his chess game.

We will watch how Vladimir continues his Soviet power move.  Now, the big question, will the West respond with force to stop him?
