    The Department of Health and Human Services is threatening to withhold U.S. funding from hospitals that fail to comply with federal requirements on reporting data about Covid-19 and influenza patients, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Administrator Seema Verma announced Tuesday. Verma said on a conference call with reporters that hospitals will be given 14 weeks to comply with the requirements before enforcement is implemented. She said federal officials will work with hospitals over that time to help bring them into compliance. “Because this requirement is in the Medicare conditions of participation, noncompliance could result in termination from both Medicare...

    The U.S. Senate moved on Tuesday to avert a pre-election government shutdown by voting to advance a stopgap funding measure that would keep the government open through Dec. 11. Tuesday's 82-6 cloture vote ended debate on the issue. According to Reuters, the Senate is expected to hold a final vote passing its spending measure, which will continue funding most government programs at current levels, on Wednesday before the government runs out of money at midnight. President Trump is expected to sign the bill, which will give lawmakers time to reach an agreement on nearly $1.4 trillion in spending, according to...

    The public elementary and secondary schools in the District of Columbia spent $30,115 per pupil during the 2016-2017 school year, according to Table 236.75 in the Department of Education's "Digest of Education Statistics." But only 23% of the eighth graders in the D.C. public schools were proficient or better in reading in 2019, according to the department's National Assessment of Educational Progress, or NAEP, tests.

    Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., plans to hold a special order on the House floor Wednesday, to allow several congressional members to speak about recent rioting in the U.S. and the possible sources of funding behind them. Biggs' office said he will host the special order following the last votes of the day and speakers are expected to include: Reps. Ken Buck, R-Colo., Chip Roy, R-Texas, Dan Bishop, R-N.C., and Louie Gohmert R-Texas, along with several others. “It will be about law and order and attacks on police in neighborhood communities," Biggs told Fox News during a phone interview.
  • Pelosi, Mnuchin Cut a Deal on Pandemic Relief Funding Bill

    The government will technically run out of money on September 30 and for members of Congress, this presented a nightmare scenario. Republicans would dearly love to pass some kind of pandemic relief bill before they break until after the election. But with negotiations still stalled, the prospect of being tied up with a coronavirus relief bill and having to deal with a bill to fund the government past September 30 at the same time would have been problematic. To forestall that eventuality, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi have agreed to treat the two issues separately. This...
  • Bipartisan Mayors Group Denounces Trump's Threat to Cut Funding to Cities Who Don't Crack Down on Protests

    The United States Conference of Mayors, a bipartisan organization that comprises elected officials from at least 1,400 cities across the country, formally condemned President Donald Trump's threat to cut local governments' federal funding on Thursday. The coalition's criticism comes on the heels of Trump's memo, issued one day prior, suggesting areas where protests continue to take place could see fewer federal dollars allocated to state and city programs. Tom Cochran, an Obama administration appointee and the Conference of Mayors' CEO and executive director, described the threat as an unlawful "attack" on residents of those areas in a statement. "President Trump...

    CMS issued an interim final rule on Aug. 25 that requires hospitals to report COVID-19 data to HHS in order to participate in Medicare and Medicaid programs. Five things to know: 1. The emergency regulations require hospitals and critical access hospitals to report daily COVID-19 data through the HHS portal, powered by TeleTracking and Palantir, to receive payment from CMS. 2. Hospitals are required to report several data points, including the number of patients testing positive for COVID-19, ICU bed occupation and availability of ventilators and personal protective equipment. This information is essential for emergency planning and resource allocation during...

    President Donald Trump threatened Wednesday to “cut off” funding to schools if they do not reopen in the Fall after closing due to coronavirus concerns. “In Germany, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and many other countries, SCHOOLS ARE OPEN WITH NO PROBLEMS,” Trump said. “The Dems think it would be bad for them politically if U.S. schools open before the November Election, but is important for the children & families,” he continued. “May cut off funding if not open!”

    Consider this a copy of Donald Trump’s Tuesday tweet in EO form. Remember this? …..This action is taken effective immediately, but may also be used retroactively for destruction or vandalism already caused. There will be no exceptions!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 23, 2020 Late yesterday, Trump formalized it into an executive order, but added a new provision. Local and state governments that don’t act to protect federal monuments can expect to kiss some of their federal grant money goodbye — at least to the extent Trump controls those pursestrings: President Donald Trump on Friday ordered the Justice Department...

    For decades, the United States has worked with the World Health Organization and others to quash polio, beating back to near extinction a merciless disease that once paralyzed hundreds of thousands of children each year. That progress is in danger as the pandemic forces health-care providers to suspend door-to-door vaccination campaigns that have slashed the number of infections. New cases have emerged in ­Niger and Chad, and fears have mounted about a resurgence in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Although the number of new polio infections has been small — 155 confirmed cases since January — even blips are worrisome, public health...

    The Kennedy Center reached a deal with its National Symphony Orchestra that includes pay cuts and wage freezes after the organization previously attempted to furlough the musicians. The center released a statement Tuesday announcing an agreement with the musicians that includes pay cuts of 35 percent for the next six months, a freezing of wages for the 2020-21 season and a delay of a planned pay increase. As part of the deal, the District of Columbia Federation of Musicians, the union that represents the orchestra members, said it will drop its grievance filed against the Kennedy Center, The Washington Free...
  • Obama Admin Repeatedly Sought Millions In CDC Funding Cuts, Despite Biden’s Attacks On Trump Preparedness

    The Obama administration consistently sought to slice hundreds of tens of millions of dollars in funding to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), yearly spending plan requests clearly show — seemingly undercutting previous Vice President Joe Biden’s repeated assaults on the Trump White Residence for its pandemic preparedness. A lot of Democrats, which include Biden, have falsely claimed that Trump slashed the CDC budget, and Biden has advised that he would under no circumstances go after very similar cuts. The Associated Press has famous that those people promises “distort” the specifics, with pointing out that CDC funding...

    The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals will rehear arguments in two Trump administration cases over a House subpoena to White House counsel Don McGahn and funding for a southern border wall. The court vacated previous rulings in both cases on Friday, according to Politico. Arguments for each are scheduled for April 28 in front of the full D.C. Circuit. House lawmakers petitioned the court last week to revisit a lawsuit to force McGahn through subpoena to testify to Congress. A divided three-judge panel ruled on Feb. 28 that the Judiciary could not decide what amounted to a political debate between...

    The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette ^ | February 19, 2020 | Lauren Rosenblatt
    Not many people would complain about a 60-degree day in February. But this winter’s temperature spikes could mean even earlier exposure to one of spring’s downsides: potholes. Tech gurus can’t stop the weather conditions that cause asphalt to weaken and crack — eventually opening up gaping holes large enough to swallow a Goodyear tire or mess up a Jeep’s alignment. But armed with smartphones, algorithms and self-healing asphalt, they’re trying to make road maintenance a little more manageable. While some are experimenting with high-tech ways to fill the pothole once it pops up — like using a 3D printer and...

    Seven hundred kids. That’s how many students would have lost their scholarships—and a chance at a better life—if Fifth Third Bank hadn’t come to its senses. Instead, after a week of uncertainty, the company sat down with Florida parents and pastors and decided not to listen to Florida’s cultural bullies. It’s one thing for a company to support LGBT extremism. It’s quite another, the bank agreed, to hurt needy children in the process. Most kids had already left school for the weekend when they got the good news: One of the biggest contributors to the Florida voucher program wasn’t dropping...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., January 31 (C-Fam) Last November at a summit in Nairobi, the UN Population Fund announced that it would take $264 billion to reduce global maternal deaths and protect women and girls from violence. The agency just released a publication outlining the details of how the billions would be spent—and the fine print includes abortion. One of the enduring legacies of ICPD in 1994 is the compromise that was struck among nations: that the legal status of abortion was for national governments to determine, and that where legal, it should be “safe.” In the past quarter century, the same...
