Trump administration to scrap ACA's birth control mandate

Trump to scrap ACA birth control mandate- The Trump administration is expected to formally remove a federal health provision, as early as Friday, that requires employers provide coverage for birth control -- making good on the president's campaign promise.

Companies are required under the Affordable Care Act to offer their employees health coverage that covers contraception. Under the new rules, companies and insurers would need only cite a moral or religious objection in order to opt out of the Obama-era federal rule requiring birth control be covered for free for all women.

TVNL Comment:  This hits poor women the hardest.  Trump and his anti women administration are cruel misogynists.

Youth football poll shows parents are worried

Football parents are worried

I was a head coach in pee-wee football for a couple of years in the early 1970s before I moved to Florida.

The teams were made up of boys from the fourth through sixth grades in elementary school. Parents were happy to sign them up for the wholesome sport of football.

Most of the kids seemed happy, too. I'll bet many of them dreamed of Friday nights when they would wear the maroon and white of the small-town Lebanon High Warriors.

Nerve implant 'restores consciousness' to man in vegetative state

Nerve implants restore some 'consciousness' to coma victimsA 35-year-old man who had been in a vegetative state for 15 years has shown signs of consciousness after receiving a pioneering therapy involving nerve stimulation.

The treatment challenges a widely-accepted view that there is no prospect of a patient recovering consciousness if they have been in a vegetative state for longer than 12 months.

Since sustaining severe brain injuries in a car accident, the man had been completely unaware of the world around him. But when fitted with an implant to stimulate the vagus nerve, which travels into the brain stem, the man appeared to flicker back into a state of consciousness.

McCain to Oppose Obamacare Repeal, Possibly Dooming GOP Effort

John McCainSenator John McCain said Friday he’ll vote against the GOP-only Obamacare repeal proposal, becoming the second Republican to oppose the measure and possibly dooming the ability of party leaders to enact it.

“I cannot in good conscience vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal," McCain said in a statement. "I believe we could do better working together, Republicans and Democrats, and have not yet really tried."

Livid Jimmy Kimmel Turns Up The Heat On Sen. Bill Cassidy For Second Night

Jimmy KimmelFor the second night in a row Wednesday, late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel raged against a Senate bill meant to repeal Obamacare. It followed an impassioned critique of Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) that captured media headlines just a day before.

Kimmel used the opening monologue of his Tuesday “Jimmy Kimmel Live” show to slam Cassidy and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), co-sponsors of a measure that would end the Affordable Care Act. The new bill, which Republican leaders are trying to ram through the Senate before the end of the month, would leave states with substantially less money to spend on health care, all but forcing them to cut programs so that literally millions of people would end up without insurance coverage. The bill would also allow states to waive rules that guarantee coverage to people with pre-existing conditions.
