Governor Wolf: Washington Republicans Continue to Ignore Bipartisan Governors

first_img Healthcare,  Human Services,  Medicaid Expansion,  National Issues,  Press Release,  Public Health,  Seniors,  Statement Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf released the following statement on the latest version of a health care bill in Washington:“Washington Republicans continue to ignore the concerns of Pennsylvania families and ideas proposed by bipartisan governors. The proposed cuts and caps for Medicaid continue to cause terror for recipients, including seniors, families, and people with disabilities, and are putting states financially at risk. The federal government cannot turn its back on us. These tweaks do little to address how these proposals will lead to increased costs, especially for many older Pennsylvanians who could be charged five times more for worse coverage by gutting consumer protections, even for some people with private insurance. The proposed changes have even been rejected by insurance companies.We can find common ground on fixing the individual market, as governors of both parties have proposed. Washington should abandon this reckless path and focus on fixing what isn’t working – rather than creating more problems and concerns for families and individuals, especially those most in need of our help.”Last month, Governor Wolf joined his bipartisan colleagues from Ohio, Montana, Nevada, Colorado, Massachusetts, and Louisiana to express concern over Washington’s approach on health care, particularly the prospect of deep cuts in federal funding to states for Medicaid.

Anichebe reveals club ambition

first_imgVictor Anichebe has expressed his desire of owning a football team in the future, but admitted that he still wants to play football in England right now.The 32-year-old spoke earlier this week about racism he suffered during his time at Everton and the need for education to be able to stamp down on abuse in the future. And, in an in-depth interview with Sky Sports, the striker has now opened up on the need for more Black, Asian and minority ethnic representation at boardroom level in the sport.Anichebe has admitted he would be interested in owning a club and sees it as a way to start a change.He said: “I would like to go down that route of owning a team.“I do have a group of people that are quite wealthy guys and together we could come together and go down that route.“I spoke to Tim Howard, who is part of a group that bought a club in America and they also own a club here [in the UK]. “I don’t see why we can’t all come together [as players] and buy clubs.“I do think that is another way to really affect change.“Instead of wanting change, we can be the change ourselves.“We can place ourselves in those positions.“We have to have a seat at the table to really effect change. “We can’t try and affect change from the outside and looking in.“I have seen a couple of players say they want to become CEOs or sporting directors and I think that is what we need to do.“We need to aspire to these positions.“But also, when we aspire to these positions [we then need] to get an opportunity to be in these positions.RelatedPosts Fulham keen on Lookman loan deal EPL: Calvert-Lewin treble fires Everton past West Brom EPL: Everton set to compound West Brom woes “All of us together have a big role to play.“I just feel like people are not going to stop until change happens, whatever that looks like.“I do feel like a lot of people want change, not just black people [but] I feel white people as well.“Right now it feels like we are loosing momentum.“It feels like nothing is really happening.”The former Everton man has not played competitive football in over two years after a brief spell in China with Beijing Enterprises, having played in the Premier League for Sunderland and West Brom following his departure from Goodison Park in 2013.But, despite that, he is still keen to have another spell in England and spoke about his trial with Doncaster Rovers last year in particular.Anichebe said: “I feel hungry to play but only if the right opportunity comes.“I am working on a lot of other things right now but if the right opportunity comes then I would definitely play.“Last year I trained with my friend Darren Moore at Doncaster.“It was really good to be in and around [the team atmosphere].“It took me about a week to get the fitness but I felt good.“I am looking forward, if the right opportunity comes, to getting back into it.“I have had a few options to go abroad but I feel I want to play in England.“I feel like I have unfinished business in England.“I would prefer to stay in England for another two years.“Right now is the fittest I have ever been.“We will see if a good opportunity comes and I’ll assess if I actually want to take it and we’ll go from there.”Tags: Doncaster.EvertonSunderlandVictor AnichebeWest Bromlast_img read more

Wembley switch might not suit Chelsea or Tottenham, warns Wenger

first_img Milton Keynes is also an option for Tottenham, but Wenger dismissed any suggestion it could be Arsenal who offer a temporary home to their bitter rivals. ”Not really,” he said when asked if Tottenham could go to the Emirates Stadium. ”We suffered a lot to build this stadium and had to be very tight financially to pay it back. I don’t know, but I don’t feel it is in our plans to do it. ”We don’t need it and we have not been approached for it as well. It’s a board decision, not mine.” Arsene Wenger has warned Chelsea and Tottenham they could face a disadvantage when they make temporary moves away from their home grounds. Wenger managed Arsenal at the old Wembley as Arsenal opted to play their home Champions League fixtures at the national stadium rather than the much smaller Highbury. The Gunners won just twice in their two-year stay at Wembley – failing to get out of the group stages in either the 1998/99 or 1999/00 competitions. They then moved their fixtures back to Highbury and, although Wenger said at the time of Arsenal announcing their use of Wembley that the club were in a situation where they needed to “either improve or die”, he now admits it was the wrong move. “It was a nightmare,” he said. “In hindsight it was the wrong decision. At the time at Highbury we had to cut 5,000 seats. We decided to go to Wembley, but we didn’t feel at home. “The pitch was bigger, the ground was different and for the English players it was something completely unusual . “We were used at Highbury to a tight pitch and unfortunately we were playing against Dynamo Kiev, who were running everywhere on a very big pitch. It was a disadvantage for sure.” At his press conference ahead of the visit of Chelsea on Sunday, Wenger said he saw no prospect of ground-sharing with north London rivals Tottenham. The Arsenal boss believes their London rivals will not feel at home while they are forced to relocate due to building works, with both eyeing moves to Wembley. Chelsea are seeking a four-year tenancy while Stamford Bridge is redeveloped, while Spurs are likely to need a ground for the 2017/18 campaign as their new stadium next to their current White Hart Lane home is completed.
