United Airlines Passenger Dragged From Plane

United Airlines is facing backlash after a videos went viral of a doctor who was assaulted before being forcibly dragged off the plane, after he refused to give up his paid seat.  The backlash against United sparked boycotts and dropped hundreds of millions of dollars from the company’s stock price.

Dr. David Dao was left bleeding and disoriented, after being forcefully pulled across the seat dividers and dragged down the aisle of the plane as shocked passengers looked on with several expressing disbelief on the incident as it was happening.

Dao, 69, of Elizabethtown, Ky., was one of four passengers picked to be bumped from an April 9 flight from Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport to Louisville, Ky., to make room for airline employees who were added to the flight shortly before it departed.

According to another passenger on Flight 3411 from Chicago to Kentucky, the airline needed seats on the fully booked aircraft to reposition four crew members for another flight.  The crew announced that the plane could not take off until four passengers voluntarily deplaned.  When it didn’t have enough volunteers, even after offering $800 and a next day flight, the airline selected the man and several other passengers to deplane.

When he refused to leave, saying he had to see patients at a hospital in Kentucky early the following morning, multiple Chicago Department of Aviation security officers dragged Dao through the aisle, bloodying him. Dao then tried to run back on the flight and was forcibly removed a second time.

United CEO Oscar Muñoz initially defended the company’s actions  but later apologized, calling the incident “horrific.”  United Airlines said it will fully refund the tickets of all passengers on board the flight.  Chicago’s Aviation Department has said that four officers involved in the beating had been placed on leave.

Dao, who was hospitalized in Chicago, suffered a concussion, a broken nose and lost two teeth in the ordeal. In preparation for a civil suit, lawyers for Dr. Dao filed an emergency request requiring United and the city to preserve records of the incident and the personnel files of the Aviation Department officers who pulled Dao from the plane.

The airline has said it is reviewing its policies regarding oversold flights.  They already announced that they will require United employees traveling for work to book seats at least an hour in advance to avoid displacing customers already on board an aircraft.

Do You Need Health Insurance This Year To Avoid The Obamacare Tax Penalties?

These Five (5) Questions May Hold The Answer….

 

 

Going without coverage can be tempting and even seem necessary at times, especially when you are relatively young, relatively healthy and on a relatively tight budget.  However, skipping major medical coverage can also be a potentially costly decision. You may wind up owing a tax penalty (yes, even now that the Trump Administration is in office), paying unexpected medical bills out of pocket, or both.

         If you are asking yourself if you really need insurance, the answers to these five questions may help you decide.

1. Are you exempt from the ACA’s individual mandate?

The Obama ‘Affordable’ Care Act’s individual shared responsibility provision (aka, the individual mandate) requires most Americans to have a health plan that qualifies as minimum essential coverage.  This may include, but is not limited to, job-based coverage, major medical plans purchased on and away from the state-based and federally facilitated health insurance exchanges, Medicaid and most types of TRICARE (veterans) coverage.

However, exemptions from the mandate are granted to individuals in certain circumstances, including those with coverage gaps of less than three consecutive months, those for whom coverage costs more than a certain percentage of their household income, those with incomes below the filing threshold and others facing general hardship, to name a few. 

If you are not exempt and do not obtain coverage as required by the law you could face a penalty known as the shared responsibility payment at tax time.

What could being uninsured could cost you if you’re not exempt?

You may owe a tax penalty known as the individual shared responsibility payment. Those who went without minimum essential coverage in 2016 could face penalties as high as follows: that penalty could be as high as :

  • 2.5% of their annual household income above the tax filing threshold to a cap of the national bronze plan s premium, or
  • $695 per adult and $347.50 per child under 18 to a maximum penalty of $2,085 per family.

For every month that you are uninsured and not exempt, you owe 1/12 of the annual shared responsibility payment.

In 2017 and beyond, the penalties remain the same, but will be adjusted for inflation.

2. How will you pay for healthcare if you need it?

While we know it can happen, we never really plan on becoming ill or getting injured, especially when our medical histories are relatively spotless. If you have no benefits to help with covered expenses when you do get sick or hurt and need medical care, you will have to pay 100% of the bills out of pocket. Whether your healthcare expenses are expected or not, do you have access to savings, credit or other funds to help pay for healthcare?

What could being uninsured cost you if you need healthcare?

Insurance status has a strong association with medical bill difficulties—more than half of uninsured individuals report problems paying household medical bills.  On average, a trip to urgent care will cost $150 and a trip to the emergency room will cost over $1,000.  Fixing a broken leg can cost up to $7,500 and the bill for a three-day hospital stay hovers around $30,000.

 

 

3. Do you plan on being uninsured for short time?

Accidents and illnesses can happen any time, not just when it is convenient. Even if you are about to start a new job with benefits that kick in a month or two down the road, it is wise to have a plan for how you will pay for healthcare in the meantime.

Short term health insurance plans provide temporary coverage for as few as 30 days. They offer a range of benefits to help with covered expenses, including office visits and emergency care, and they can be quickly obtained. Application and enrollment take only a few minutes, and coverage begins as early as the day after you enroll. You can buy short term coverage year-round.

What could a short term health plan cost you?

Typically, short term plan premiums are a fraction of major medical premiums. Keep in mind that short term plans are not the same as Obamacare plans (i.e., major medical insurance). They are not subject to the ‘Affordable’ Care Act, which means you may be denied coverage based on your health history and, if you are not exempt from the shared responsibility provision, having short term coverage will not prevent you from owing a tax penalty.

If you plan to be uninsured longer than three months and do not qualify for a special enrollment period, you may consider a hospital indemnity plan.

 

Learn about HIP (Hospital Indemnity Plans)

4. Will you qualify for an Obamacare subsidy?

If you buy a major medical plan from a state-based or federally facilitated health insurance exchange (the Obamacare plans) and meet certain income qualifications, you may be eligible for a subsidy. Obamacare subsidies include advanced premium tax credits that help lower your monthly premium payment.

Remember: You can only buy major medical plans during the annual open enrollment period or during a special enrollment period if you have a qualifying life event.

What could health insurance cost you with an Obamacare subsidy?

Major medical health insurance premiums vary depending on a number of factors, including where you live, what type of plan you choose (i.e., bronze, silver, gold, platinum), and your age. In 2016, the average premium for health insurance plans purchased through the federal Obamacare HealthCare. gov exchange was $408 per month.

However, 83% of people who purchased healthinsurance through HealthCare. gov received subsidies that helped lower their monthly premiums.  The average advanced premium tax credit amount was $294 per month, which lowered the average monthly cost to $113 per month.  

 

Consider “Gap” Insurance To Cover The Higher Obamacare Plan Deductibles & Out-Of-Pocket Limits

 

5. Are you eligible for Medicaid?

In 2014, Medicaid eligibility was expanded to include single adults earning up to 133 percent of the federal poverty level. Not all states decided to participate in this optional expansion. You can enroll in Medicaid year-round. To view your state’s eligibility criteria, click here to visit Medicaid.gov’s State Medicaid & CHIP Profiles page.

What could Medicaid coverage cost you?

If you qualify for Medicaid, you may be able to get low-cost or no-cost coverage.

The Obama ‘Affordable’ Care Act may require you to buy health insurance, and there may be financial risks in going without it. Ultimately, you must decide if you need health insurance. It is important to understand all of the benefits and risks associated with your decision. Work with a health insurance producer to determine the right coverage options for your health and financial situation.

You can call the number at the top of your screen to speak with a certified advisor (i.e., health insurance producer) who can assist you. You can also obtain quotes for supplemental products, short term coverage and off-exchange Obamacare plans at :

North Korea Warns U.S. It’s Ready For War

A major escalation of the tensions between the U.S. and North Korea has led to the US sending the Carl Vinson aircraft carrier and several warships toward the Korean Peninsula.  The Carl Vinson and three guided-missile destroyers and cruisers to the peninsula were sent only days after North Korea launched its latest ballistic missile test. This missile reportedly flew only 37 miles.

North Korea has condemned the U.S. for bringing the aircraft carrier group and other nuclear-armed assets into the region, and threatened an assault on South Korea, Japan and U.S. bases.  A North Korean Foreign Ministry spokesperson stated that “We will hold the U.S. wholly accountable for the catastrophic consequences to be entailed by its outrageous actions. North Korea is ready to react to any mode of war desired by the U.S.”

U.S. intelligence officials believe North Korea is preparing its sixth nuclear weapons test, possibly as early as Saturday, April 15 which coincides with the 105th anniversary of the birth of the country’s founder, Kim Il-sung.

North Korean senior officials have accused the Trump administration of wanting to “annihilate” their country and blamed the escalating tension on the Korean Peninsula squarely on the U.S. and South Korea.  Han Song Ryol, North Korea’s Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs stated in an interview that if North Korea felt they were going to be attacked they would use nuclear weapons.

Experts say the sixth nuclear test could come at any time and is part of the Kim Jong Un regime’s quest to build a nuclear-tipped missile capable of reaching the U.S. mainland. Most analysts believe North Korea is still at least several years away from that capacity, but Pyongyang already has weapons that pose a serious threat to U.S. allies South Korea and Japan, and U.S. troops based in those countries.

North Korea’s nuclear weapons development program has been a primary focus and a tense topic for years. Just last month North Korea successfully launched four ballistic missiles into the waters off northwest Japan.   State media in Pyongyang said it was just a dry run of a nuclear attack against US military bases in Japan and experts say this exercise was defensive, not offensive.

A North Korea official stated Pyongyang intends to “relentlessly strengthen” the country’s nuclear weapons.  Experts say North Korea’s goal in advancing their nuclear program and developing nuclear-tipped missiles that can reach the US is a deterrent for a US invasion.

Experts have debated whether North Korea possesses a nuclear warhead it can mount to a short or medium-range missile. North Korea claims that it has miniaturized a nuclear warhead and is capable of mounting it to a short, medium, or long-range missile – has never been independently verified.  Kim said in his New Year’s address that the country had reached “the final stages” of that weapon’s development.

While analysts say it is unlikely that North Korea possesses an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of reaching West Coast cities such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, or Seattle, they are well on their way to developing such a weapon.

FL Governor Removes Prosecutor From 21 Cases Over Death Penalty Dispute

In an escalating dispute over the death penalty cases in Florida, Governor Rick Scott has removed Orange-Osceola  State Attorney Aramis Ayala from 21 more cases from District 9 to a special prosecutor.  The governor’s spokeswoman said in a statement “State Attorney Ayala’s complete refusal to consider capital punishment for the entirety of her term sends an unacceptable message that she is not interested in considering every available option in the fight for justice,” Ayala’s office, in response, is saying Scott blindsided her and is calling the decision an abuse of power.

All of the cases removed from Ayala have been reassigned to State Attorney Brad King.  Ayala has filed a motion in state circuit court indicating her intent to challenge Scott’s decision and disputing the governor’s authority to remove her simply because he disagrees with her valid exercise of prosecutorial discretion.

Ayala, an elected prosecutor in central Florida’s Ninth Judicial Circuit, took office in January, to begin a four-year term.  In March, Ayala announced she would no longer seek the death penalty in any murder cases, including in the case of Markeith Loyd, who’s accused of murdering his pregnant ex-girlfriend and then Orlando police officer Debra Clayton. Scott removed Ayala from that case shortly after.

Her decision sparked an outcry with many Republican leaders claiming Ayala violated her oath of office by taking the death penalty off the table. Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi called Ayala’s move “a blatant neglect of duty and a shameful failure to follow the law,” while members of the state legislature threatened to reduce her office’s funding.

There were also some who backed Ayala’s decision including more than 100 judges, former prosecutors and legal experts who have expressed their support for Ayala, saying Scott has overstepped his legal authority by removing her from cases, and saying she has the legal discretion to not seek the death penalty.

Capital punishment remains legal in 31 states, but death penalty sentences have dropped dramatically over the past few decades. Of the nation’s 2,300 prosecutors, only 27 sentenced a person to death last year.  Capital punishment in Florida has been on hold since Jan. 12 when the U.S. Supreme Court invalidated the state’s sentencing system as a violation of a defendant’s right to a jury trial.  Florida’s old law allowed a jury to recommend the death penalty by a simple majority vote.  Every other state with the death penalty except for Delaware requires juries to be unanimous in recommending a sentence of death.

In March, Governor Scott attempted to restart executions last month by signing a bill which took effect immediately-that requires jury recommendations to be unanimous before a death penalty can be imposed by a judge.  After signing the legislature, Scott said he hopes that executions could soon resume in Florida.  “My foremost concern is always for the victims and their loved ones,” Scott’s statement said. “I hope this legislation will allow families of these horrific crimes to get the closure they deserve.”

Inciting Violence Lawsuit Against Trump and His Campaign Will Move Forward

U.S. District Court Judge David Hale in Louisville, Kentucky, has ruled that a lawsuit accusing Donald Trump of inciting violence against protesters at a presidential campaign rally last year can move forward, denying a free speech argument against the suit.

The ruling opens the way for the lawsuit brought by three protesters to proceed through the legal system. The suit is against Trump, his campaign and three of his supporters.  Trump’s lawyers had argued a free speech defense against the lawsuit, arguing that Trump did not intend for his supporters to use force.

Kentucky federal Judge David Hale said he found ample facts supporting the allegations that the protesters’ injuries were a ”direct and proximate result” of Trump’s actions.  He wrote that “it is plausible that Trump’s direction to ‘get ‘em out of here’ advocated the use of force. … It was an order, an instruction, a command.”  The protesters- two women and a teenage boy, were at the Kentucky International Convention Center.

Plaintiffs Henry Brousseau, Kashiya Nwanguma and Molly Shah say they were assaulted by Trump supporters at the March 2016 rally in Louisville as Trump repeatedly said “Get ‘em out.”  The trio are suing Trump and his campaign for incitement to riot, negligence, as well as gross negligence and recklessness. They are seeking unspecified damages.

The attackers named in the lawsuit include Matthew Heimbach, a member of a white supremacist group, and Alvin Bamberger, a member of the Korean War Veterans Association in Ohio. A third defendant has not been identified.  In a video of the incident that went viral shortly after it happened, Heimbach and Bamberger are seen pushing Nwanguma down an aisle as Trump repeatedly says  “Get ‘em out, Get ‘em out of here!”

Hale said the removal of Nwanguma, an African American woman, was “particularly reckless.” The judge did not remove allegations that Nwanguma was the victim of racial, ethnic and sexist slurs from the rally crowd.  He wrote, “While the words themselves are repulsive, they are relevant to show the atmosphere in which the alleged events occurred.”

The judge dismissed part of the suit claiming that Trump and his campaign were “vicariously liable” for assault and battery. Hale said that the men accused of attacking the protesters were not employed by the Trump campaign, nor were they under Trump’s direct control.

Alvin Bamberger, said in a letter cited by the judge: “Trump kept saying, ‘get them out, get them out,’ and people in the crowd began pushing and shoving the protesters. I physically pushed a young woman.”

US Strikes Syrian Airbase After Chemical Attack

At least 86 people have died, including 20 children, and hundreds wounded – in a suspected chemical weapons attack in the northern province of the rebel controlled city of Idlib.  The attack has been described as the largest chemical attack in Syria since 2013. The United States, France and Britain have accused the Syrian government of carrying out the attack and have proposed a United Nations Security Council resolution condemning it.

U.N. war crimes investigators have said that if the suspected chemical attack is confirmed, that it constitutes a “serious violation of international law.”  Russia had initially claimed that the chemical attack was actually gases that were released after an airstrike hit a depot where rebels were making chemical weapons.  Later, a spokesperson for Russian President Vladimir Putin called the gassing of civilians a “dangerous and monstrous crime” but did not name anyone as the perpetrator.

Syrian journalist Hadi Abdullah, who was a victim of the attack that occurred at dawn on Tuesday, described it in an interview.  “We were attacked with four strikes” “When people went to help, they were choked with the poisoned gas.”  Abdullah described his symptoms of a massive headache with blaring pain in his eyes, trouble breathing and a persistent runny nose as minor in comparison to others.

He described the horrifying scene in the aftermath of the strike as chaos with crying, people being stripped and washed in the streets and children suffocating and dying in the streets as white liquid frothed from their open mouths. He said many were wandering the streets in search of loved ones-not knowing if they had been taken for medical treatment or were already dead.  In one case, he said, an entire family – parents and three children, were found dead in their beds from the initial alleged chemical attack.

According to Syrian Dr. Khaled Al Milaji- the initial medical summaries following the attack indicated that the substance used was “more than just chlorine,” and that they strongly suspect “sarin or worse” was also utilized.  Sarin is next to impossible to detect, due to its clear, tasteless and non-odorous nature.  Atropine – a medication used intravenously to treat certain types of nerve agent exposure – was distributed as widely as possible, but the best chance one had of survival was being relocated to safer area in the northern part of the region.

Just days before the chemical attack, the Trump administration said it would no longer seek the ouster of Bashar al-Assad but afterwards, President Trump said that it had altered his position on Syria and its leader Bashar al-Assad.  A mere 63 hours after the chemical attack, understandably shaken by photos of infants and children dying- President Trump gave the order to unleash 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at Al Shayrat airfield- where attack was launched from.

The intent of the US strike was to “send a message” to the Assad regime.   Russia’s Foreign Ministry quickly condemned the U.S. assault, saying it threatened international security. Russia-the Syrian regime’s main ally, has pledged to help strengthen Syria’s air defenses and suspend its “deconfliction agreement,” which prevents Russian and U.S. planes from coming into conflict over Syria.

Former South Korean President Arrested

Former South Korean President Park Geun-hye was arrested  on charges related to the bribery scandal that led to her impeachment.   Park faces 13 charges in total, including bribery, abuse of power and the leaking of state secrets. She has not been formally indicted yet but prosecutors can detain her for up to 20 days before formally charging her.

Park was removed from office March 10th, stripping her of presidential immunity after South Korea’s Constitutional Court upheld a decision to impeach her for alleged corruption.

The scandal has dominated the headlines in South Korea since late last year and sparked mass protests, many calling for her impeachment.  The controversy centered around Park’s friend and close adviser, Choi Soon-sil, who is alleged to have had significant and inappropriate influence over the former president. Choi is on trial for abuse of power and fraud.

Among other accusations, Park is accused of helping extort some $38 million from Samsung and a total of $70 million from South Korean companies for the private slush fund of her friend and confidant Choi Soon-sil.  Park is also accused to leaking state secrets to Choi. Lee Jae-yong, the former head of Samsung is also being held in connection to the same corruption scandal. Lee is accused of approving the millions in bribes to Choi.

The former president continued to deny all wrongdoing during a 14-hour interrogation last week, leading prosecutors to ask for a warrant for her arrest. They said they were concerned Park would destroy evidence if she remained at large.  The 65-year-old former president was taken to a detention center outside Seoul, the same detention center where Choi Soon-Sil and  Lee Jae-yong, the de facto head of Samsung are both being held. If convicted, Park could face up to 10 years in prison.

Park becomes the third former president in South Korean history to face the possibility of a prison sentence. Two other former leaders, Chun Doo-hwan and Roh Tae-woo, were charged with improperly collecting millions from businesses while in office.  Both were later pardoned after short jail stints.

Seoul Central District Prosecutor’s Office released a statement regarding the arrest.  “The suspect abused the mighty power and position as President to take bribes from companies and infringed upon the freedom of corporate management and leaked important confidential official information.”

Park Geun-hye was the nation’s first female president and the daughter of the former president Park Chung-hee.  Park’s mother was killed in 1974 in an assassination attempt that targeted her husband.  Park was regarded as First Lady after her mother’s death.  Park’s father, Chung-hee, was gunned down by his own intelligence chief in 1979.  After her father’s killing, Park Geun-hye left the presidential Blue House and secluded herself from the public eye.  She entered politics in the late 1990s — when public nostalgia for her father emerged after the country’s economy was hit hard by the Asian financial crisis.
