They don’t even try to hide itblueollie

Yes, the vote on the toxic Senate version of “Trumpcare” has been delayed. Of course, this bill fixes NONE of the problems with the ACA but instead cuts taxes on the wealthy. I am not sure how cutting Medicaid (on a percapita basis) and giving the wealthy a tax cut on investment income is supposed […](image)

A baseball “staycation”blueollie

Tue, 27 Jun 2017 22:11:21 +0000

No Texas trip this summer; no major trips period (though I do have a couple of Chicago trips planned for July; a math conference and a 1/2 marathon). But I did have a vacation of a sort last night/today. Last night: Barbara was a trooper and put up with 11 innings of Peoria Chiefs baseball. […](image)

Better things ahead for my walking?blueollie

Ok, this was solo. No Lynnor. 😦 And no, it wasn’t fast; I was just over 15 minutes for the fist mile; I walked through the construction at Sheridan/McClure and decided to risk getting divebombed on the river (red winged black birds); that didn’t happen. I was 1:23 at the Peoria Heights Tower (as opposed […](image)

The Turtlecare bill (aka BCRA)blueollie

Fri, 23 Jun 2017 18:39:10 +0000

Yes, it is a dreadful bill; it hurts those with preexisting conditions and savages Medicaid, especially if the economy goes south. And all if it for a tax cut for the wealthiest among us. What chance does it have? I COULD pass the Senate, though that is uncertain. I can recommend Nate Silver’s analysis. And […](image)

sciatica day 2blueollie

Fri, 23 Jun 2017 18:09:31 +0000

Last night: no trouble sleeping, though I did my McKenzie exercises before going to bed. I slept very well. Weights; (some modification) rotator cuff, hip hikes, calf raises, pullups (5 sets of 10), bench press: 10 x 135, 5 x 185 (careful with the back), incline: 7 x 150, 10 x 135, dumbbell military: 7 […](image)

Democrats: offer a “yea” vote on AHCA if they remove the tax cutsblueollie

Thu, 22 Jun 2017 18:36:18 +0000

Let’s be blunt: the AHCA (aka “Turtlecare”, “Cheetocare”) is nothing more than a repeal of the high end tax hikes on the well-to-do. Period. The rest is to make reconciliation work. So, let the Democrats in the Senate offer to back the Senate version if The Turtle takes out those tax cuts. Play chicken with […](image)
