Police arrest and remove protestors with disabilities at Senate Graham-Cassidy hearing

Yahoo - Art News - Mon, 09/25/2017 - 16:57

How do we say this nicely, Senator Cassidy and Senator Graham: everyone hates your dumb healthcare bill.  Well, at least a solid majority of Americans do, and pretty much everyone who came to watch the Graham-Cassidy hearing Monday afternoon. Activists from the grassroots disability rights group ADAPT disrupted the hearing multiple times, causing Senator Hatch to briefly recess the hearing and prompting Capitol Police to arrest protestors, some of them in wheelchairs. Their protest centered around the large concern that passage of the bill would severely deplete medicaid funding. But many other worries exist about how the bill would not include essential health benefits, cause millions to lose their insurance, and shrink the Obamacare protections for people with preexisting conditions. The footage of police forcibly removing the ADAPT protesters is both inspiring and predictably heartbreaking. SEE ALSO: Hurricane Maria plunged Puerto Rico into a humanitarian crisis, and help has barely arrived Here is Senator Hatch ordering that the hearing be recessed as protestors in wheelchairs are pulled away by authorities: And Senator Cassidy responding with his characteristic charisma, aka a zombie-like yawn: Under Graham-Cassidy, at least 1.4 million adults with disabilities would lose Medicaid, per the Center for American Progress. Depending on how deep the cuts go (and what version of the bill we're looking at) that number could easily climb to 1.8 million.  A protestors looks on as other demonstrators are taken out.Image: tom williams/CQ-Roll Call, Inc.With fewer services, advocates fear that folks with disabilities could be forced back into institutions and otherwise pushed out of the workforce. Organizers estimated that the number of arrests today would hover around 100.

In June, 43 demonstrators assembled by the organization were arrested outside of McConnell's office to protest cuts to Medicaid.  Senators McCain, Paul, Collins, and Murkowski have all expressed either opposition or extreme reservations about the bill, which was supposed to be scheduled for a vote sometime this week.

The U.S. Navy's Nuclear Submarines Could Be Made Obsolete

Yahoo - Art News - Mon, 09/25/2017 - 15:05

On a more human level, it would be interesting to go back in time to World Wars I and II, where a constant refrain of the sailors and airmen who hunted subs was the sheer tedium of the search. Hour after hour after hour of scanning the oceans, in the hope that a needle in the haystack would reveal itself as a sonar contact or a tiny periscope peeking above the surface. If nothing else, farming out sub-hunting to the robots will make chasing subs a bit less dull.
