how trump is a little bit right and a lot bit wrong about medicaid


president trump on wednesday said that the republican plan to change medicaid would lead to an increase in spending, not a cut, accusing democrats of having “purposely misstated” the facts.in a literal sense, he's right. the total amount of money spent on medicaid under the senate republican plan would grow, albeit slowly, from 2017 to 2026.but the accounting he uses to show medicaid spending is wildly divergent from the way budget analysts, policymakers and many lawmakers account for spending levels. medicaid spending under the republican plan would not increase when accounting for the inflation of medical costs. in fact, it would mark a “a reduction of $772 billion in federal outlays for medicaid” over 10 years compared with what would happen if the senate bill is not enacted i...






congress is about to go on a deficit-spending spree

dnd 5e - are there any quick, reliable ways to level up in d&d 5e?


levels are just a tool for enjoying the gameno one will come barging to your rpg table to check if the levels are "legit" in any way - the only thing that matters with the leveling pace is that you and your players have fun with it. this means you can and should adjust the leveling pace to match what your players want - if they feel they're growing in power too slowly, give them more levels, and if they feel they're growing in power too fast to appreciate what they're getting, slow down.in accordance to this, remember that it is a perfectly valid option to start the game with a higher level character. if what you really want is a high-power campaign from levels 10 to 20, there's little point in spending twice the time just to build up the characters from level 1 to 10 in action.consi...

trump’s proposed 2018 budget takes an ax to science research funding


tornadoes in the southeast, earth’s magnetic field and obesity might not seem to have much in common. well, now they do.under president donald trump’s 2018 budget proposal, federal research spending into all three areas — and many others — would decline abruptly. the president delivered his budget request to congress on may 23, presenting the sharpest picture yet of his administration’s priorities for federal science spending. some science and technology programs within agencies would see their funds increase, but the administration recommends extensive cuts to basic research overall. the request greatly expands on the “skinny budget” the administration released in march (sn: 4/15/17, p. 15).  total federal research spending would be slashed by about 17 percent, rush holt, c...

someone has to give if we're to fix the budget


the nation's budget problem still won't be solved when, one day in the distant future, we get the federal budget back into surplus. only a change in strategy is likely to produce a sustained solution.as successive intergenerational reports demonstrate, on present policies government spending will just grow and grow, requiring ever-higher taxes. illustration: ron tandberg if we don't like that idea – or politicians regard it as an impossible sell – we need to think a lot harder about what we're spending on, why it's growing so fast, what things we should stop spending on, and how we can make our spending more effective, in the process slowing the rate at which it's growing.the five biggest areas of spending include welfare benefits, health, education and infrastructure. infra...
