Alabama needs a psychiatrist and a financial advisor. The lives lost, hospitals closed and billions of dollars, left on the table, is the result of despicable political motives of several Alabama Republican Governors.
EXPAND MEDICAID, sounds simple, practical and in the best interest of all Alabama citizens. Only one obstacle Medicaid is part of the Affordable Care Act.
Let’s go back to Love Gov. Bentley in 2015 when he left 3 BILLION DOLLARS, on the table and threw heath care, under the table. Bentley was a doctor but he was focused on being the Luv Gov.
Let’s fast forward to 2021. INSANITY is “doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result”. Albert Einstein.
Governor Ivy just married the citizens of Alabama to a “private Partnership” prison for profit plan, to the tune of 3 Billion. What about the Billions lost in the lottery? BILLIONS in dollars and lost opportunity, but we keep doing the same thing, over and over.
Our good Governor Ivy ignored recent studies that indicated a majority of citizens wanted the Medicaid Expansion.
What would be Alabama’s revenue “loss” of Medicaid dollars since 2015? 15 Billion, 20 Billion? How many lives could we have saved? How many hospitals, mostly rural, could have been saved from closing.
If I still have your attention then please read this last link and ask yourself where are all the Christians? You know those conservative Christians?
Alabama’s Medicaid program provides medical insurance to groups of low-income people and individuals with disabilities. Medicaid is a nationwide program jointly funded by the federal government and the states. Medicaid eligibility, benefits, and administration are managed by the states within federal guidelines. A program related to Medicaid is the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), which covers low-income children above the poverty line and is sometimes operated in conjunction with a state’s Medicaid program. Medicaid is a separate program from Medicare, which provides health coverage for the elderly.
The refusal to expand medicaid in Alabama is a classic example why Alabama always finishes last, more often than not. Except of course in football and political corruption where they win a first place.
Corruption is everywhere like development. Here to stay I’m afraid.
As long as we put up with it then it is here to stay – until we vote them OUT
Meemaw says “I’ll have another…on the house”
The ‘Christians’ are on the City Council, Planning Commission and other government offices. Next election, don’t vote for the ‘Christians’!
The Christian Conservatives will keep being elected because CSB tells them that being a christian concervative (whatever that means) polls well. The voters here in Baldwin are too busy working two jobs to pay for their DR Horton houses that are overpriced for the cheap materials that are put in them. Besides, they are told they are buying into “Paradise.”
Paradise will soon collapse as the subdivisions overwhelm the area.
Hey folks: notice how the stores are always understocked in Daphne and Fairhope? That is because all the new people are overwhelming the stores and the stores cannot keep the shelves stocked. It is not all COVID. Ask a stock person at Walmart.
Wait until you have a medical emergency and cannot get into Thomas Hospital. The local leaders need to be charged with criminal offenses for putting the people at such a risk. They are part of the problem.
Walmart practically invented modern logistics and inventory tracking. They have distribution centers all over the place. Whatever the reason, it’s not an issue of too many people. They adjust pretty quickly.
So if Walmart is so adjustable then how do you explain the empty shelves? I am not talking about just toilet paper but rather the entire store: Soups, milk, cold cuts and cheese, soaps, and bread(which is baked locally) are very low. It makes them look like a third world country.
I am not blaming Walmart but the overpopulation of this area.
Dear Walmart defender,
I think you missed the point here. The explosion of the population is creating a load on the stores as well as everything else. Did you get this or are you a Catalyst troll who has been assigned to try to debunk the perilous results of growth through greed?
We will be ready next election
It is an issue of too many people,
Your point is correct about rapid growth. But not your Walmart argument. I could keep going but why?
Because you have been outed as incorrect
Typical Catalyst troll who has been exposed
You said you could go on but why. The answer is because you have been OWNED
I said I wouldn’t go on because I agree with the point of the comment and your opinion. This doesn’t have anything to do with the topic. With the exception of the toilet paper / sanitizer craze, gaps get filled quickly. The inventory system adjusts ordering with every purchase. It will catch upward trends, etc. If you carry a phone on you, you are tracked throughout the store by bluetooth beacons. Bluetooth is on by default on most phones.
Next time you use those self checkouts, try only weighing some of the produce in the plastic bag while leaving some off the scale. The AI will catch you. Try it. They are heavily, heavily invested in artificial intelligence and machine learning. Only use cash? They track your face/body anyway. Still effective with masks. Imagine what they put into inventory tracking, etc. There are very few surprises.
Beyond all of that, if a bottle neck continues, they have a private jet and will show up to fix it. It doesn’t matter how inconsequential of a store, when it comes to re-evaluating the competition, that plane will show up and study what’s going on and make improvements.
Not too long ago, they would do a complete remodel every 4 years to match the quality of competition nearby. At that time they re-evaluate their strategy.
So, why is this happening? I can’t tell you for sure but consider this.
Walmart has, for the first time in their history, contracted out work to staffing agencies. You might notice them in your store. They wear navy polos and kacki shorts or pants but no walmart vest.
I know someone who started working for Walmart through a staffing agency. If you show any symptoms of covid at all, even minor ones, you are off for 2 weeks. And it happens often. It eventually happened to my friend who then had to find another job.
So, in my opinion, this is a much bigger problem than overgrowth in a region. If they haven’t fixed it yet, this is happening all over the place. My bet is covid.
Let’s cut the crap. The population and the terrible traffic it has already caused is beyond what we will ever be able to comfortably deal with. Every person that is now added, especially along the eastern shore will end up wreaking havoc on everyone. What a shameful thing to have let happen.
This has been going on for over a year with the supplies running low. How is that “adjusting g pretty quickly?”
Stop trying to deflect the problem. Too many people are moving n here too fast
Ok, too many words I guess? In short, this is happening throughout Walmart’s system due to covid. Otherwise they would have fixed it. For the last time, I AGREE WITH YOUR OVERALL POINT.
Yep. The local leaders have betrayed us. They must meet their punishment that they deserve.
Rigged elections have consequences
Two weeks to flatten the curve ripp.
What a complete scamdemic!
Masks are effective.
Roll with it.
2023 back to normql.
? You still betting on March 4th? ? You should go raid the capitol!
Anthony Fauci spends too much time on TV and not enough time in the lab
Trump should have fired his ass. He isn’t a doctor but a media whore. He was working on AIDS but still hasn’t found
A cure for that virus because he is too busy looking for a TV camera
Yes, you are so correct here. Fauci has no time to work his job because he is too busy being the liberal media darling. Why are taxpayers paying for him to be a researcher when he does not do any research?
I bet the only time he touches a medical instrument is when he uses it as a prop for the TV cameras.
It’s like he’s a reality tv star. Just like our lord and savior! Are we sure we hate him??
Fauci is the highest paid public official in the ??
I’m pretty sure it’s a football coach. What’s your source?
Nevermind, it looks like you are correct. The people who say he must go do science stuff in a lab have no idea how the world actually works. As (or if) you gain experience in a valuable field, you do much more good by directing others and overseeing the whole picture. It’s not limited to science.
Fauci is the highest paid. FACT.
Yep and he is working for private broadcasting stations on taxpayers’ time. Fauci needs to have somebody shut him the heck up
As long as we are in the middle of this scandemic then Fauci will be a TV Star. So he probably hopes this scandemic keeps on and on
what tangled webs we weave when we practice to deceive. a stolen election with the help of a scam DEMic.
Rush Limbaugh was right. The dems are evil.
The dems are as evil as Catalyst and how Catalyst runs its politicians
Rush has been Flushed
Rush had cancer.
Very Christian of you.
