WashPost: Senate may drop public option

Senate may drop public option

By Shailagh Murray and Lori Montgomery
Democratic Senate negotiators struck a tentative agreement Tuesday night to drop the controversial government-run insurance plan from their overhaul of the health-care system, hoping to remove a last major roadblock preventing the bill from moving to a final vote in the chamber.

My Take:

Without a public option there is not health care renovation. Right now the public does not have access to health care as a right. People go bankrupt due to health care costs, delay of treatment and care continues. Make your voices heard now. Contact your Senator. There is no health care reform without a public option!

Slim Fast Recall

NewsEmergency.comFDA Posts Nationwide Recall of Slim Fast Drinks: 10 million cans affected

A nationwide voluntary recall of all Slim-Fast ready-to-drink (RTD) products in cans has been posted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) due to the possibility of contamination with Bacillus cereus, a micro-organism, which may cause diarrhea and possibly nausea and/or vomiting. The probability of serious adverse health consequences is remote. Slim-Fast is a product of Unilever United States, Inc.

The products are packaged in paperboard cartons and contain four, six or 12 steel cans or individual cans that are 11 FL OZ (325 mL) each.  The recall involves all Slim-Fast RTD products in cans, regardless of flavor, Best-By date, lot code or UPC number. No other Slim-Fast products are affected by this recall.
The recall was initiated after the company conducted quality testing on Slim-Fast RTD products in cans. Out of an abundance of caution, the company is recalling all RTD products in cans that are currently in distribution centers, on-shelf or in back rooms in retail outlets or in consumers homes. The company is in the process of identifying and correcting the production issue, and will resume production and shipment of the product when the issue has been addressed and corrected.
Consumers who have purchased Slim-Fast RTD products in cans are urged to discard them immediately and contact the company at 1-800-896-9479 for a full refund. The Consumer Services Center is open Monday thru Friday, 8:30 AM to 6:00 PM ET. A recorded message is available 24/7.

Home Care Patients Worry Over Possible Cuts
By ROBERT PEAR
Both the House and Senate health care legislation would reduce Medicare spending on home health services.

MY TAKE:
As our country addresses the issue of health care, coverage, etc this is one issue that will be impacted. Decades ago it was common to take care of our loved one in our homes. But then it was easier because today’s technology did not exist. Today in order to have  adequate care families need the support of others to make home health care work effectively.
