More states offering dental care to low-income adults

Sun, Oct 1, 2023 at 12:37 pm

A growing number of states are offering dental care to low-income adults who once had to rely on charity or the emergency room to treat their tooth problems

VERBATIM:

From Tennessee to Maine, lawmakers have agreed to spend hundreds of millions of dollars so adults on Medicaid, the federal health program, can get dental care. The federal government doesn’t require that states provide such care. But state lawmakers have come to embrace the idea that expanded oral care saves money and has other health benefits.

Biden frustrated with “brinksmanship” in Congress

Sun, Oct 1, 2023 at 3:07 pm

President Biden wants an end to the “brinksmanship” in Congress. Hours after signing a bill that averted a government shutdown, the president expressed frustration over the near miss. He called out Republicans for not honoring their word on a budget agreement, which he said led to a “manufactured crisis.” The short-term spending bill approved by Congress will fund the government until mid-November.

No Compromise. Schumer Prepares To Blame House GOP For Shutdown

Fri, Sep 1, 2023 at 1:22 pm

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer [D-NY] is laying the groundwork to blame House Republicans for an expected government shutdown at the end of the month. In a letter to his Democrat colleagues Schumer writes that any shutdown will be the result f what he calls “political games” by House Republicans. Fiscal House conservatives are demanding 2024 spending cuts deeper than those already agreed to by Republican House Speaker Kevin McCarthy and the white house. And they’ve vowed not to budge, even if the budget stalemate leads to a shutdown at the end of September. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell has said the senate GOP will not support House bills demanding the deeper than agreed upon cuts.

Former President Trump Kicks Off Campaign Events

Sat, Jan 28, 2023 at 10:16 pm

The former President is kicking off his 2024 campaign with two stops along the East Coast. More from Correspondent Bernie Bennett.

Former President Donald Trump kicked off his 2024 White House bid with a stop Saturday in New Hampshire before heading to South Carolina, appearances in early-voting states marking the first campaign events since announcing his latest run more than two months ago.

Those states hold two of the party’s first three nominating contests, giving them enormous power in selecting the nominee.

Mr. Trump and his allies hope the events will offer a show of force behind the former president after a sluggish start to his campaign. In recent weeks, his backers have reached out to political operatives and elected officials to secure support for Mr. Trump at a critical point when other Republicans are preparing their own expected challenges.

A warning for America’s churches

A warning for America’s churches

VERBATIM: It comes from Aaron Earls of Life Way Research in a new post that crunches a lot of the polling data that his ministry has been compiling in the last year or two. Earls says the country’s Christian congregations face some challenges: For one thing, a record number of churches are seeing membership decline and many also have an aging pastor and no sucession plan in place. Another problem — pastor burn-out — no matter HOW old he is. Michael Harrington, SRN News.
