Overigens pushed conservative talk radio op dit moment single player healthcare ipv Ryan's plan en dan zonder de Freedom Caucus lijkt erop dat Team Trump een power play doet tegen het R establishment.
Lijkt me onzinnig. Dat zou betekenen dat Trump alwéér de kaart moet spelen dat hij eigenlijk niet achter die wet stond, maar dat anderen dat nu eenmaal graag wilden. 'I was given that information', maar dan blijkbaar ook voor grote wetten. Dat ziet er niet goed uit.

Daarnaast is Ryan natuurlijk nog wel populair onder het Republikeinse establishment, en als je hem er uit wil gooien om een Trump-vriendelijk figuur te installeren heb je datzelfde Republikeinse establishment wel nodig om dat voor elkaar te krijgen, je hebt immers een meerderheid nodig en op de democraten hoef je niet te rekenen. Vertrouwen op dezelfde figuren die je aan het piepelen bent is een gewaagde strategie.

Daarnaast, wat gaat er gebeuren met een nieuwe Trump-vriendelijke speaker? Je krijgt hetzelfde probleem met de zorg, want er zitten een heleboel tegengestelde belangen binnen de Republikeinen.

Het lijkt mij waarschijnlijker dat Trump dacht dat Ryans plan een prima plan was, er snel achter kwam dat het niet helemaal top was toen hij naar Fox & Friends keek en daarom zijn naam er niet op wil zetten. Lekken van die audio schrijf ik volledig op het conto van Bannon, die domweg zijn eigen plek wil verstevigen en daarom vertrouwelingen van Donald aanvalt via Breitbart.

Er schijnt nogal een paranoïde sfeertje te hangen in het Witte huis:
quote:
'People are scared’: Paranoia seizes Trump’s White House
Staffers are leaving their phones at home, using secret apps and monitoring each other’s social media.

A culture of paranoia is consuming the Trump administration, with staffers increasingly preoccupied with perceived enemies—inside their own government.

In interviews, nearly a dozen White House aides and federal agency staffers described a litany of suspicions: that rival factions in the administration are trying to embarrass them, that civil servants opposed to President Donald Trump are trying to undermine him, and even that a “deep state” of career military and intelligence officials is out to destroy them.

Aides are going to great lengths to protect themselves. They’re turning off work-issued smartphones and putting them in drawers when they arrive home from work out of fear that they could be used to eavesdrop. They’re staying mum in meetings out of concern that their comments could be leaked to the press by foes.

Many are using encrypted apps that automatically delete messages once they’ve been read, or are leaving their personal cell phones at home in case their bosses initiate phone checks of the sort that press secretary Sean Spicer deployed last month to identify leakers on his team.

It’s an environment of fear that has hamstrung the routine functioning of the executive branch. Senior advisers are spending much of their time trying to protect turf, key positions have remained vacant due to a reluctance to hire people deemed insufficiently loyal, and Trump’s ambitious agenda has been eclipsed by headlines surrounding his unproven claim that former President Barack Obama tapped his phone lines.

One senior administration aide, who like most others interviewed for this story spoke on the condition of anonymity, said the degree of suspicion had created a toxicity that was unsustainable.

“People are scared,” he said, adding that the Trump White House had become “a pretty hostile environment to work in.”

A White House official rejected the notion that there’s a culture of paranoia.

Spicer on Tuesday emphasized that cell phone checks are not White House policy, and said that neither he nor others are still conducting them. “The only incident in which that occurred was limited to the one involving myself,” he said.

Trump has a history of overseeing pressure-cooker organizations rife with suspicion, setting up sophisticated surveillance partly to monitor employees at his properties, including at his campaign headquarters, where some campaign aides suspected their offices were bugged.

One widespread concern in the Trump White House: That career intelligence operatives are working to undermine the new president through a series of leaks of classified information.

Much of the suspicion is directed at the Central Intelligence Agency, which many Trump loyalists believe is targeting CIA skeptics who sit on the National Security Council. Some of them allege that the CIA was behind the damaging leaks to the press that culminated in the resignation of National Security Adviser Michael Flynn in February, and that the agency has pushed for the removal of other staffers.

They also believe the CIA exaggerated security clearance concerns that led to the removal of a top Flynn deputy, Robin Townley, from the NSC. Last week, another top NSC staffer who had drawn opposition from some within the CIA, intelligence director Ezra Cohen-Watnick, was told he was being removed, only to have Trump overrule the decision, after Trump advisers Steve Bannon and Jared Kushner intervened, two people familiar with the episode said.

Some rank-and-file White House aides, meanwhile, have become convinced that intelligence agents may be monitoring their phone calls, emails, and text messages. Those fears intensified last week when WikiLeaks released a trove of CIA documents outlining how the agency can break into phones and computers.

In an interview, one White House aide described the elaborate steps he was taking to shield himself. Once he gets home in the evening, he turns off his work phone and stores it in a drawer because, he said, he believes it could be used to listen to him even when it’s off. If he makes a call during off-hours, he uses a separate, personal phone in an adjoining room, where the stowed work device wouldn’t be able to pick up his voice as clearly.

The fact that so much sensitive information from the White House was making its way to news outlets, he said, had raised suspicions that national security officials were listening in.

“I’m paranoid,” said the aide. “Anything significant seems to be on the front page the next day.”

One prominent Republican strategist who is close to the administration marveled at the amount of sensitivity over phones. “It’s always a, ’you never know who’s listening’ kind of thing,” this person said. “It’s a general concern that people have over there.”

Some staffers have even expressed concern about messages that appear on digital faces of the White House’s landline phones, indicating that calls could be monitored. The White House official, however, said those messages have been a feature of the building’s phone system for years.

Yet the perception among some staff that monitoring is widespread has engendered even greater suspicion and anxiety. “We’ve got strict instructions not to talk to talk to the press,” said one White House aide. “I assume I would get fired immediately.”

One senior aide said staffers have become almost obsessed by daily palace intrigue news accounts, spending hours dissecting in the office in hopes of deciphering who is dishing — and who is trying to hurt whom.

Another Republican who is close to the White House said junior-level staffers were simply “mimicking what they’re seeing at the top … Everyone at the top is so suspicious that it trickles down the org chart, so everyone has become paranoid and suspicious.”

The distrust, some contend, isn’t unfounded.

“I wouldn't call it paranoia under the circumstances,” said a Republican who communicates with many administration aides through encrypted apps. “It’s not paranoia if people really are out to get you, and everybody actually is out to get everyone else.”

Many staffers say they don’t like the idea that supervisors – or anyone else – could have access to their emails. Some have taken to using secure messengers like Confide and Signal in order to communicate on their personal phones. One program gaining popularity within the administration is Wickr, which allows users to set an expiration time on how long an unread message can remain in a recipient’s inbox before it self-destructs.

The encryption programs can’t be accessed from White House-issued phones, which prevent users from downloading most apps. There are no restrictions on employees using encrypted apps on their personal phones, the White House official said, as long as they’re not being used to conduct official business.

The most stress, however, may be outside the West Wing, in executive branch agencies, where staffers worry about career bureaucrats who are hostile to Trump.

Fears grew on Friday, when Sid Bowdidge, a Trump appointee to the Department of Energy who worked on the campaign, was ousted amid reports that he’d expressed anti-Muslim views and argued that Obama had relatives who were terrorists in Twitter posts from over a year ago.

In an interview, Bowdidge blamed the disclosure on an anti-Trump department staffer who had picked through his background. He called the incident “character assassination” and said that Obama allies were sending a warning shot to Trump loyalists in agencies.

“A lot of these career folks were put in there over the last eight years, they’re Obama supporters,” he said. “By and large, they hate Trump.”

Spokespeople for the Department of Energy did not respond to a request for comment.

To inoculate themselves, staffers at agencies have begun scrubbing their social media accounts for anything that could be perceived as controversial. They are also operating on the assumption that anything they say in the office could be leaked.

One agency aide said he had become particularly circumspect in meetings and was taking additional steps to protect himself, like keeping his office door closed during the day. He has used his off-time to catalogue the Twitter and Facebook postings of co-workers who he suspects harbor anti-Trump views and could be a threat.

“I do think there’s a concerted effort to disrupt us," the aide said. “We’re professional, we’re courteous. But it’s a one-way street. The [anti-Trump staffers] out to hurt the administration, and you have to handle yourself accordingly.”

In recent days, the administration has given credence to the idea that Obama loyalists are working against them. When Spicer was asked during a briefing last week about the idea that a deep state is working to undermine the president, he did not reject the premise.

“I don’t think it should come as any surprise that there are people that burrowed into government during eight years of the last administration, and may have believed in that agenda and what to continue to seek it,” he said.

Obama White House veterans are skeptical.

Tommy Vietor, who was an NSC spokesman during the Obama years, rejected the current administration’s deep state concerns as “overstated and ridiculous.”

“The idea that there are career officials who are holdovers who may not agree with Trump is neither new nor remarkable,” he said. “That’s not the deep state.”

How the American Health Care Act Leaves Near-Elderly People Behind
The bill cuts the deficit and lowers premiums for the wealthy and healthy by squeezing the poor, old, and sick out of health-care markets and government-benefit programs.

The numbers are in, and they aren’t great for some of the sickest people in the country.

On Monday, the Congressional Budget Office scored the American Health Care Act, projecting that the new Republican health reform would make dramatic changes to the American health-care landscape. On the one hand, the law would cut the deficit by over $300 billion over 10 years and reduce average premiums after an initial two-year increase. On the other, the office projected that 24 million additional people would either lose health insurance or choose to go without it in the next decade.

Proportionally, the group of people that would see the most coverage losses under the AHCA is the population of people aged 50 and older. Although they’re more likely to have coverage in the first place, owing to more stable employment and a higher likelihood of public-insurance coverage, CBO estimates show the uninsured rate of people over 50 would skyrocket from around 13 percent currently to just under 30 percent by 2026. Included in that number are near-elderly adults with low incomes, a group that’s most likely among all non-Medicare enrollees to be sick, and one of the most expensive groups to cover in American health markets today.

Essentially, the AHCA works by abandoning a key goal of health reform altogether, and carving out some of the most expensive people to cover—while simply not offering them a more affordable coverage option. The CBO report suggests that while the Republican plan includes an age-adjusted tax credit to purchase health insurance and a fund for establishing reinsurance and cost-sharing programs for states’ riskiest potential enrollees, for low-income near-elderly people those cost-reductions would not be enough to offset the elimination of the Medicaid expansion, the establishment of per-capita caps on Medicaid, the loss of the ACA’s cost-and-income-based premium tax credits, and a new age-rating scheme that allows insurers to charge older people much more for coverage relative to younger people.

Table 4 of the CBO report shows just how this dynamic plays out:

bc3f33af8.jpg

Currently, a 64 year old person who makes 175 percent of the federal poverty line ($26,500—about a $13 per hour wage in a full-time job) but doesn’t receive insurance from an employer or public coverage pays around $1,700 per year on average in the exchanges for a health-insurance plan. But that person’s actual premiums are much higher because of age, although Obamacare hides that amount with a premium tax credit that adjusts with cost. Obamacare’s cost-sharing subsidies paid directly to insurers increase the average actuarial value of their coverage to 87 percent—meaning the plan covers 87 percent of health-care costs. Even under Obamacare, that final amount of $1,700 is steep for a person who makes less than the $28,000 average cost of living in the United States.

Under the AHCA, the new age-rating structure actually increases the total premium, while substantially decreasing the amount of federal assistance for paying that premium. It also eliminates Obamacare’s cost-sharing reductions and allows exchange plans to cover fewer services, meaning the same person under AHCA rules will have to pay almost nine times as much for a health-insurance plan that pays for only about two-thirds of health-care services. Put a different way, this hypothetical person would have to pay 55 percent of their pre-tax income just to have inferior insurance. It’s pretty safe to say that nobody in this situation in real life would actually be able to afford health care.

The specific circumstances of 64-year-olds in the exchanges may seem unrepresentative, but note the table shows premium increases for 40-year-olds as well. After age 40, able-bodied people unlucky enough to not have employer coverage will face a steadily worsening affordability curve. Also, as the AHCA defunds enhanced federal rates for the Medicaid expansion and incentivizes states to reduce Medicaid coverage and services, more and more near-elderly people who are close to, or below, the poverty line will lose public-coverage guarantees, and will be forced to choose between paying half or more of their yearly incomes or going without.

As my colleague Olga Khazan notes, even near-elderly people who have employer-based coverage are at risk, because without an employer mandate and with exchange tax credits, some employers will drop their insurance plans. And of course the employers with the greatest incentive to drop coverage will be those with the most expensive employees to cover—including near-elderly low-wage workers.

Republicans behind the AHCA have known about these challenges for a while, and have done their best to spin them as positives. House Speaker Paul Ryan has defended the plan against criticism of the CBO’s estimates of coverage losses, saying that “this report confirms that the American Health Care Act will lower premiums and improve access to quality, affordable care. CBO also finds that this legislation will provide massive tax relief, dramatically reduce the deficit, and make the most fundamental entitlement reform in more than a generation.” Ryan acknowledges the concerns about coverage losses, but recasts the losses as an expansion of choices that reduces cost.

It’s tempting to buy Ryan’s optimistic spin, or temper it by writing off huge premium spikes as uncharacteristic bits of collateral damage for an otherwise useful plan to control costs.The truth of the CBO report, however, is that the entire mechanism of the AHCA’s savings and premium reductions for healthier and wealthier people lies in making coverage too expensive for older, sicker people with less money. Most of the budgetary savings come from cuts to Medicaid funding and the replacement of the Obamacare premium tax credit with a much less generous credit, both of which will lead to less coverage among this older population. And most of the out-of-pocket savings for people who can afford coverage by 2026 rely on expensive enrollees just disappearing from health-care markets. Attrition among near-elderly people with low incomes isn’t an ancillary effect of Republican policy here; rather it is the engine that makes the rest of the bill work.

The irony is that the mid-aughts health-reform momentum that gave the country the Affordable Care Act put the plight of near-elderly people at its center. For decades, researchers have noted that one of the key turning points in a person’s health-care experience is when they turn 65 and are guaranteed Medicare coverage. For many people, that age arrives as an oasis in a health-care desert. In 2004, almost a quarter of all people between 55 and 64 who made less than 200 percent of the federal poverty line were uninsured, a statistic that led Urban Institute and Kaiser Family Foundation researchers to reach the following conclusion 13 years ago: "Extending coverage to this group could be done either through providing access to Medicare, or creating a new group purchasing arrangement. Expanding Medicaid to even subgroups of the near elderly seems less feasible at this time given that the near elderly are a high-cost population and states are struggling to maintain their programs’ coverage in the face of unparalleled fiscal crises. Alternatively, tax credits for the purchase of non-group health insurance are unlikely to help many of the near elderly unless the value of the credit is substantially adjusted for age or health status."

Without employing some of the options outlined in that report—the Affordable Care Act focused on Medicaid expansion and an adjustable tax credit—the AHCA will likely increase mortality among near-elderly people. Researchers have found that people between 55 and 64 who are uninsured are significantly more likely to die than their insured peers. That much should be obvious, as 65 is a somewhat arbitrary age for health purposes, and often the advance of age-linked disorders comes earlier. The median age of several cancer diagnoses—especially for people of color—often comes in the near-elderly range, and heart disease, diabetes, and hypertension often first manifest themselves during this range. And as the opioid epidemic grips the country, the risk of death from overdose is increasingly rapidly among the near-elderly.

Again, those risks are not simply collateral damage or unintended consequences of the AHCA; they are the ultimate endpoint of all its constituent policies. Republicans could fix these consequences, but that might mean risking some of the more positive reports of effects on the budget and premiums, and in essence really creating the “Obamacare lite” kind of program so dreaded around the Capitol. And if whispers of Republican plans to raise the Medicare age or reform that program have any amount of truth to them, the AHCA could land as the first blow of a one-two punch. It would deeply weaken health-care coverage and health for near-elderly people even as future policies delay the promise of guaranteed care past the age of 65. The end result of that system would be—simply—more deaths.

Politically, the AHCA faces risks because it tends to negatively affect the kinds of people who voted for President Trump and the new Republican majorities in the first place: rural, older Americans with higher health costs and more health problems. But beyond the politics, if any American health reform should be judged on how much it betters the health of the sickest people and how much it lowers the costs of the most expensive people, the AHCA fails on just about all the merits.

Zijn het 2 pagina's :')
Uit 2005 :')

Waarschijnlijk heeft ie ze zelf gelekt, zegt de journalist die ze kreeg

Maar dat heeft hij toch ook gedaan heb ik begrepen? Nadat bekend werd dat het gelekt was heeft hij de gegevens zelf vrijgegeven om dat voor te zijn.
