Health care debate may shift focus to consensus

Lawmakers may try to fix issues Democrats, Republicans agree on

WASHINGTON – — With a virtual civil war raging over parts of President Barack Obama’s health care agenda, the smoke of battle has obscured a surprising fact: Democrats and Republicans actually agree on a bundle of proposals that could make medical insurance better for millions of Americans.

Fixing Health Care Is Good for Business

How many aspiring entrepreneurs are stuck in dead-end jobs because of health concerns?

You have probably heard the horror stories about President Barack Obama’s health-care proposals leading to rationed care and bankrupt businesses and governments. Those claims are flat wrong. The real horror story is not what health-care reform will bring. It’s what’s already happening.

There has been a lot of talk about the 47 million Americans who do not have health insurance. But health-care reform is just as important to the majority of Americans who have health insurance now. Absent reform, the price of an average family’s insurance will nearly double over the next decade—to $25,000 from $13,000.

Health Care Reform Now

As teachers and principals shake the cobwebs off of our national education system in the weeks to come, there will be a new concern to accompany the normal anxieties about students, lesson plans and classrooms. After a summer in which many overnight children’s camps were plagued by H1N1 flu infections, schools across the country are preparing contingency plans in case the highly contagious virus hits their campuses. While 700 schools closed across the nation when the virus first hit this spring, schools now are planning to stay open by quarantining the sick as soon as they are afflicted since the virus can be highly treatable, especially when it is caught early.

Effect on health care bill debated

Top Obama administration officials differed yesterday on whether the death of Senator Edward M. Kennedy will help the push for universal health care, the cause of his life. Vice President Joe Biden said Kennedy’s passing – and the outpouring of tributes – could break the partisan gridlock on Capitol Hill. “God willing, maybe his loss and all about him will be the catalyst to make people come around and begin to compromise to get something done,’’ Biden said in an interview aired yesterday on NBC’s “Today’’ show.

*****Valley immigration divide wide******

Partnership between police, federal officials sparks heated discussions at town hall event

A town hall meeting on a controversial new partnership between Las Vegas police and federal immigration officials drew a bitterly divided crowd Thursday evening.

On one side of the commission chambers at the Clark County Government Center sat civil rights leaders and those who came to express fears that the partnership — which facilitates enforcement of immigration laws on those who’ve been arrested — could lead to racial profiling and make people afraid to report crimes.

ACLU, La Raza, unions ask Obama to scrap immigration pacts with local cops

The groups — which include the American Civil Liberties Union, National Council of La Raza and United Methodist Church — asked Obama to nix 287(g) agreements with local law enforcement agencies. That includes an agreement with Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who has used that authority to raid businesses suspected of employing undocumented workers, make arrests and pick up suspected illegal immigrants on crime sweeps.

Homeland secretary calls immigration policy overhaul ‘a priority’

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Thursday that she was optimistic that a bipartisan immigration-policy overhaul would, at some point, get through Congress.

“This is not a new issue,” she said in a meeting with The Dallas Morning News’ editorial board. “It’s just putting together a comprehensive package that covers the immigration issues from A to Z. … It’s a priority for both me and the president.”
