    I encourage and plead with my Tennessee Governor @BillHaslam to grant #Clemency4Cyntoia. Cyntoia Brown was a victim of child sex trafficking, raped and forced into paid sexual exploitation to stay alive. She deserves our empathy and your mercy.
    This whole story and her defenders make me sick.

    Want to argue that a minor shouldn't be charged as an adult? Fine.I don't agree with you but make that argument.

    Want to argue that 15 years in prison is long enough for someone who committed this crime at the age of 16? Fine. I don't necessarily agree with you but make that argument.

    But instead her defenders are saying shit like she was forced to work as a sex worker, which very well could be true, but not by the man she murdered. Or they say shit like she was abused and her mother drank while she was in the womb and she's the victim in all of this. What? She's the victim in all of this? Not the man she killed in cold blood while he was sleeping?

    The article you linked said she claimed to be afraid for her life. I'm not saying that it was 'right', but it sounds like a shitty situation all around.

    I wonder what they'll say if she murders again. Probably blame the prison system for making her that way.

    NYC Mayor DeBlasio is announcing that they will be offering free healthcare to all. He estimates there are 600,000 people that will take advantage of this program and be estimates they will spend 100 million.

    Someone help me out here.. how are they providing healthcare for that many people and only spending about $170 a year??

    I honestly hope it works out for New York City.. if it does, we should roll it out nationwide..

    When it doesn't, they'll blame it on Trump. Maybe Bush too.

    The proposed city-funded health insurance option would assign a primary care doctor to each plan participant and help patients find specialists if needed. De Blasio said the plan, which would be financed out of the city’s public health budget, would ultimately be cost effective by reducing hospital emergency room visits by uninsured patients and by improving public health.
    The city’s public-hospitals corporation, which was running a deficit approaching $1 billion several years ago, has reduced costs and gained revenue through the Affordable Care Act to the point where it is approaching a surplus this year, de Blasio said.

    “It involves taking the money we’re spending right now and using it a lot better,” de Blasio said.
    It seems like the goal is to cut down on un-insured people utilizing hospital ERs for routine care. That stuff adds up. If they ran the numbers and this proposal can actually reduce costs then it's honestly pretty smart. Will be interesting to see how it pans out for NYC.

    It might turn into people utilizing other services more often too though.

    Well, yeah. Sick people use their healthcare, lol. Gotta imagine they ran various models on it and it came up more affordable to the city to do it this way than to run an ever increasing public hospital deficit.

    I don't know why this is in the facepalm thread. Premature to assume it'll fail, imo.

    When it does fail because suddenly, people are using this new program in exponentially higher numbers than their “model” is based on.. you can tell all your friends I knew it the day it was announced.
