Will Michigan expand Medicaid? It could be decision day at state Capitol

How they voted Medicaid proposal splits Republicans in Michigan House

LANSING – Today could be the day that Michigan lawmakers ultimately decide whether to expand government health insurance to more than 400,000 additional people.

Gov. Rick Snyder cut short a trade trip to Israel to be in Lansing for Thursday’s legislative session – likely the last before a scheduled summer break that will eat up much of July and August. The Republican governor supports Medicaid expansion, and he wants an up-or-down vote on the proposal before that summer break.

Snyder was at the Capitol on Thursday, lobbying for Medicaid expansion.

Michigan lawmakers approve home heating program funded by utility surcharge of up to $1 per month
LANSING – Electric utility customers could be charged up to $1 a month for a fund aimed at assisting low-income people with their home heating bills.

The Michigan Senate approved Senate Bill 284 by a 34-4 vote Tuesday, sending the measure to Gov. Rick Snyder. The House approved the bill last week.

The Michigan Public Service Commission would be allowed to approve a surcharge of up to $1 per month on customers’ electric bills to raise money for the fund. The fund would be capped so it could not raise more than $50 million a year.

How they voted: School dissolution, fireworks, Medicaid debated by Michigan lawmakers

How they voted School dissolution, fireworks, Medicaid debated by Michigan lawmakers

It typically gets busy at the Michigan Capitol right before lawmakers are scheduled for a break in session.

That’s happened recently as the Legislature tackles several issues before a summer recess, which could start at the end of this week.

Lawmakers are voting on proposals related to school districts in severe financial trouble, Medicaid and dozens of other topics.

Here are a few of the votes from last week:

Tim Bos calls in to talk about his petition against medicare expansion

The Petition

We, the undersigned citizens of Michigan, as the funding source for local, state, AND the federal government, are outraged by all elected officials shirking their responsibility to protect our rights, the fruits of our labor, and who have summarily ignored our widespread and well-known wishes to resist tyrannical attempts to shoulder us with the burden of providing a free healthcare handout to additional hundreds of thousands of Michigan residents annually by expanding Medicaid eligibility.

Furthermore, we find it remarkably irrelevant and an insult to our intelligence that state officials think it’s better to have a federal thief stealing from us instead of one sent by the state.

We are hereby notifying all legislators who voted in favor of this monstrosity, or intend to in the future, that we will neither support or assist in your re-election, and in many cases will be actively involved in the demise of your political careers.

We believe that you have violated our trust, financially enslaved ourselves, our children, and those still unborn, and that your actions were complicit in the destruction of the greatest healthcare system in the world, the financial stability of our nation, and the prosperity of every single man, woman, and child blessed with the unrivaled good fortune of American citizenship.

Therefore, you are no longer considered worthy of the privilege of representing us and our best interests as elected representatives, and we shall act accordingly- with prejudice.

MARQUETTE — Drivers on US-41 in Marquette Township on Monday morning may have noticed some people showing support for local workers.

The men holding signs say they’re volunteers who don’t represent any specific group or organization. They say they want to see local workers hired for construction projects in the area.

They’re specifically upset about the company chosen to build a new Ulta Store in Marquette Township next to TJ Maxx and Pet Smart. The company, Innovative Construction Solutions, is from Wisconsin and brought in workers and managers from outside the Upper Peninsula.

Sheriff Mack stops by to give us an update of what is going on:

“I want support for local workers,” said Marquette resident, John Kleiber. ”These dollars need to stay in the community here. These companies could have been all local firms. We have the talent here, we have the skilled construction personnel, and we have the companies that can do the job.”

The group plans to hold signs on the highway every morning this week from 7 a.m. to noon. The construction company that’s building the new store told TV6 that they had no comment on the matter.

Lawmakers Wants Source of Spy Leaks Prosecuted

The heads of the Congress’ two intelligence committees want the source of stories leaked about the government’s secret domestic spying programs prosecuted.

Appearing on ABC’s This Week, House Republican Mike Rogers and Senate Democrat Dianne Feinstein both agree that whoever tipped The Guardian’s Glenn Greenwald off about the National Security Agency’s data-mining, which they regard as critical tool in fighting terrorism, should be tried for spilling classified information.

Rogers contends that both Greenwald and his source, later identified as NSA contract employee Edward Snowden, don’t “have a clue how this thing works.” He explained that Greenwald received incomplete information, which doesn’t give an accurate portrayal about the nature of the government gathering data about Americans’ phone calls as well as from the servers of at least nine Internet giants.

The Michigan lawmaker emphasized, “The National Security Agency does not listen to Americans’ phone calls and it is not reading Americans’ emails.”

Feinstein added that everything is aboveboard, saying, “These programs are within the law, the business record section is reviewed by a federal judge every 90 days.”

Meanwhile, Colorado Democratic Senator Mark Udall also expressed his displeasure with the leaks but admitted he has never totally supported the wide powers given the government to spy on its citizens.

He told This Week, “I think it’s an opportunity now to have a discussion about the limits of surveillance, how we create transparency, and above all, how we protect Americans’ privacy.”

Jury Selection to Begin in Zimmerman Trial

Jury selection begins Monday in the trial of George Zimmerman, the Sanford, Florida, neighborhood watch captain accused of murdering 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in February 2012.

The sensational case has garnered international headlines, focusing not only on whether Zimmerman used unnecessary deadly force to subdue Martin, who he claims attacked him, but also if it was an instance of racial profiling since Martin was African-American and Zimmerman is a white Hispanic.

Prosecutors and the defense are expected to interview 100-300 people from a pool of 500 with jury selection expected to last one-to-three weeks. All the names of potential jurors will remain anonymous, the judge in the case has decreed.

Randy Reep, a criminal defense attorney and former prosecutor in Jacksonville, contends, “Both sides are going to have to be careful in juror selection because the race issues in this case are highly charged. If I was the prosecutor in this case, I would desire to have black people or other minorities who have had bad experiences based solely on their ‘profileable’ characteristics.”

Usually, it’s the defense that looks for people who believe they were wrongly targeted because of their race.

Zimmerman has been charged with second-degree murder. He maintains that it was Martin who set upon him after their encounter in a gated community, alleging that the teen was reaching for Zimmerman’s gun to shoot him. Zimmerman, who is free on $1 million bail, asserts that he had no other recourse but to use deadly force.

The prosecution maintains that Zimmerman was the aggressor from the start. “The evidence is overwhelming,” said Benjamin Crump, an attorney for Martin’s family. “Trayvon was yelling and screaming for help, and he was shot and killed by George Zimmerman.”

Assistant State Attorney Bernie de la Rionda says the prosecution will try to demonstrate a “depraved mind without regard for human life” — Florida’s definition of second-degree murder.

Circuit Judge Debra Nelson has ruled that Martin’s marijuana use and past fights can’t be brought up.

The case might also have an indirect effect on Florida’s “Stand your ground” law, which allows the use of deadly force when one feels his or her life is being threatened.
