(CBS Local)- It’s championship week in college football, which means a stacked schedule is set for Saturday as nine conferences will crown their champions. The marquee names, #1 LSU, #2 Ohio State, #3 Clemson and #4 Georgia will, of course, be in action, but there are some under-the-radar matchups that will be fun to watch as well. One game that fits into that category is the battle for the Conference USA title between the University of Alabama-Birmingham Blazers and Florida Atlantic Owls. “First and foremost, this game features two of the last champions in Conference USA. FAU won it in 2017, and UAB won it last year,” said CBS Sports Network college football analyst Aaron Taylor. “These are teams that have proven that they belong and deserve to be there and are capable of winning it all.” As a college football fan, you may remember UAB from last season, when they won the C-USA title just five years removed from having the program discontinued following … [Read more...] about ‘Old School Vs.

No, keep it fuzzier. Photo: Joe Raedle/Getty Images Elizabeth Warren has been unusually fastidious about explaining how she will pay for most of her proposals: For example, she believes her wealth tax would raise about $2.75 trillion over a decade, and she’s apportioned the proceeds among plans for higher education, K-12, and child care. But she hasn’t said how she will pay for by far the biggest-ticket item in her policy agenda: single-payer health care, which would cost something like $30 trillion over a decade. And based on reporting from Jeff Stein at the Washington Post, I think we can see why Warren has been fudging: All the options she’s reportedly being offered for greater specificity sound like political nightmares. One of the ideas she’s been advised to look at is saying she will divert funds from Medicare and the Department of Veterans Affairs to pay for much of the cost of a single-payer plan, essentially rolling them into her new system — … [Read more...] about Elizabeth Warren Has Good Reasons to Stay Vague on Health Care
Hey, it could happen! Photo: Mike Groll/AP/Corbis Fed by health-policy chaos in Washington and dissatisfaction with aspects of both Obamacare and its proposed GOP replacements, New York and California are taking steps toward state-based single-payer health insurance systems that would provide universal coverage without insurance premiums, deductibles, or co-pays. In New York last week the State Assembly passed a single-payer proposal for the third consecutive year. Prospects for Senate passage have gone up significantly thanks to backing from the Independent Democratic Caucus that often holds the balance of power in the Republican-controlled chamber. In California, Democratic supermajorities in both legislative chambers have enhanced prospects for single payer among other progressive priorities, and a new bill has already cleared one hurdle in the lower chamber of the legislature. It gained some fresh attention recently when the nation’s most prominent single-payer proponent, … [Read more...] about Will New York and California Take the Plunge on Single-Payer Health Care?
