Says Mrs. Mochulsky and EscapadeMusic@Twitter

(IBD) ObamaCare/Covered California trumpeted the news on Monday that premiums are set to rise 4% in 2016 slightly less than last years 4.2% increase.

While avoiding the double-digit premium hikes that have been proposed in many other states, many consumers may not be so celebratory when they find out what is happening to their deductibles which are already sky high.

Particularly hardest hit are people seeking the lowest cost ‘bronze-level’ coverage. In 2016 these plans will carry a deductible of $6,000 (an increase of $1,000 from 2015) and a separate drug deductible of $500 — After the deductible is met bronze coverage will cap R/X costs at $500 mo the combined $6,500 deductible will then be 30% higher than in 2015

Covered California Executive Director Peter Lee said in a conference call that in 2016 a visit with a Specialist (with a $90 co-pay) will be allowed as part of three partly covered physician visits, left unsaid is that low income individuals facing a $6,500 deductible could easily be swamped with debt after getting limited benefits before the deductible is met. — This is perhaps ObamaCare/Covered California Achilles’ heel given that enrollment has badly lagged expectations.

PRC Detained LawyersChina Regime Mass Suppression of Lawyers Reveals True Nature
of Dictator Xi Jiping ‘Rule By Law’ –HRIC

(NY Times) More than 200 Chinese lawyers and associates have been detained by authorities, some being paraded on television (forced) to make humiliating confessions or portrayed as ‘rabble-rousing thugs’ — A blast of commentaries in China state media have accused them of subversion and swindlers.

In what lawyers are calling the most withering political assault on their profession in decades, the China regime is mounting a broad crackdown on ‘Human Rights Lawyers’ alleging they have exploited contentious cases to enrich themselves and attack the Chinese Communist Party.

The beleaguered lawyers say the China government real goal is to discredit and dismantle the “rights defense” movement, a small but audacious group of people who have used the law and public pressure to defend clients in a system stacked against them.

On Wednesday, Hong Kong Free Press reported that detained lawyers are at risk of torture by the China regime. Teng Biao, a human rights lawyer and visiting scholar at Harvard and New York Universities said that he had been “abducted, locked up and tortured,” by security forces before.

In an Op-Ed published in the ‘Washington Post’ Teng said, ‘This is the biggest crackdown on lawyers in China since the legal system was reestablished in 1980 after the cultural revolution.

It is also just part of the purge that President Xi Jinping has carried out against civil society since he came to power in late 2012. Those hit by this comprehensive suppression have included political dissidents, nongovernmental organizations, government petitioners, underground Churches, Internet users, news organizations and universities.

More than 1,500 (human) rights defenders have been arrested or thrown in jail including well known lawyers Xu Zhiyong, Pu Zhiqiang and Tang Jingling,” who was arrested at his Guangzhou home in 2014 ahead of the 25th anniversary of the Tiananmen protests.

China regime hasn’t been a disappointment to Democrats.
