A tale of four cities: Medicare reform and competitive pricing. (1/31)

The current payment system for Medicare + Choice (M + C) plans is based on prices calculated from administrative records. This system has been criticized as arbitrary, inefficient, and unfair. Most Medicare reform proposals would replace the current payment system with some form of competitive pricing. However, efforts over the past five years to demonstrate competitive pricing for M + C plans have been blocked repeatedly by Congress, even when the demonstrations were directly responsive to a congressional mandate. In the absence of political support, a demonstration of competitive pricing may be infeasible, and Congress could be forced to take the risky step of implementing broad Medicare reforms with very little information about their effects.  (+info)

Who really wants price competition in Medicare managed care? (2/31)

There is much policy talk about making Medicare more competitive, like private markets. But when reform proposals near implementation, local opponents of competition are often able to stop reform experiments. This paper reports on one recent example, the Competitive Pricing Advisory Committee, created by the 1997 Balanced Budget Act (BBA) to bring competitive bidding to Medicare + Choice plans. After design and site-selection choices were announced, members representing local interests were able to delay and perhaps kill competitive bidding before it could start, once again. A public report of this story may save future market-based Medicare reforms from a similar fate.  (+info)

Is premium support the right medicine for Medicare? (3/31)

This paper assesses the desirability of transforming Medicare into a premium-support system. I focus on three areas crucial to the future of Medicare: cost savings, beneficiary choice, and the stability of traditional Medicare. Based on my analysis of the Bipartisan Commission on the Future of Medicare plan, I find substantial problems with adopting premium support for Medicare. In particular, projections of premium-support savings are based on questionable assumptions that the slowdown in health spending during 1993-1997 can be sustained and extrapolated to future Medicare performance. Consequently, premium support may inadvertently destabilize public Medicare and erode beneficiary choice without achieving substantial savings.  (+info)

The health plan choices of retirees under managed competition. (4/31)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effect of price on the health insurance decisions of Medicare-eligible retirees in a managed competition setting. DATA SOURCE: The study is based on four years of administrative data from the University of California (UC) Retiree Health Benefits Program, which closely resembles the managed competition model upon which several leading Medicare reform proposals are based. STUDY DESIGN: A change in UC's premium contribution policy between 1993 and 1994 created a unique natural experiment for investigating the effect of price on retirees' health insurance decisions. This study consists of two related analyses. First, I estimate the effect of changes in out-of-pocket premiums between 1993 and 1994 on the decision to switch plans during open enrollment. Second, using data from 1993 to 1996, I examine the extent to which rising premiums for fee-for-service Medigap coverage increased HMO enrollment among Medicare-eligible UC retirees. PRINCIPLE FINDINGS: Price is a significant factor affecting the health plan decisions of Medicare-eligible UC retirees. However, these retirees are substantially less price sensitive than active UC employees and the non-elderly in other similar programs. This result is likely attributable to higher nonpecuniary switching costs facing older individuals. CONCLUSIONS: Although it is not clear exactly how price sensitive enrollees must be in order to generate price competition among health plans, the behavioral differences between retirees and active employees suggest that caution should be taken in extrapolating from research on the non-elderly to the Medicare program.  (+info)

Capitation and risk adjustment in health care financing: an international progress report. (5/31)

In every system of health care, capitation payments have become the accepted tool used by health care purchasers in much of the developed world to determine prospective budgets. The policy prescription of capitation is perceived to address both equity objectives (of great importance in publicly funded systems of health care) and efficiency objectives (the dominant concern in competitive insurance markets). An examination of the current state of the art in 20 countries outside the United States in which health care capitation has been implemented confirms that capitation has assumed central importance within diverse systems of health care. In practice, however, the setting of capitation payments has been heavily constrained to date by poor data availability and unsatisfactory analytic methodology.  (+info)

Confirmatory factor analysis of the Consumer Assessment of Health Plans Study (CAHPS) 1.0 Core Survey. (6/31)

The National Consumer Assessment of Health Plans Study (CAHPS) Benchmarking Database was used to assess the factor structure and invariance of the CAHPS 1.0 Core Survey. Separate analyses were conducted with Latino and non-Latino Caucasian consumers drawn from commercial and Medicaid sectors (N = 15,092). Results demonstrated that the 23 CAHPS 1.0 report items measure consumer reports of experiences with 5 aspects of health plan performance: Access to Care, Timeliness of Care, Provider Communication, Health Plan Consumer Service, and Office Staff Helpfulness. Four items assessed global ratings of care. Analyses revealed an identical pattern of fixed and free factor loadings across all samples. Magnitude of factor loadings and correlations among factors was essentially equivalent within a common health service sector. A higher order factor analysis revealed that rating and reports of care showed marked convergence.  (+info)

Will choice-based reform work for Medicare? Evidence from the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program. (7/31)

OBJECTIVE: . To examine the effect of premiums and benefits on the health plan choices of older enrollees who choose Federal Employees Health Benefits Program (FEHBP) health plans as their primary payer. DATA SOURCES: Administrative enrollment data from the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) and plan premiums and benefits data taken from the Checkbook Guide to health plans. STUDY DESIGN: We estimate individual plan choice models where the choice of health plan is a function of out-of-pocket premium, actuarial value, plan attributes, and individual characteristics. Plan attributes include plan structure (fee-for-service/preferred provider organization, point-of-service, or health maintenance organization), drug benefit structure, and whether or not the plan covers other types of spending such as dental services and diabetic supplies. The models are estimated by conditional logit. Our study focuses on three populations that currently choose FEHBP as their primary health care coverage and are similar to the Medicare population: current employees and retirees who are approaching the age of Medicare eligibility (ages 60-64) and current federal employees age 65+. Current employees age 65+ are eligible for Medicare, but their FEHBP plan is their primary payer. Retirees and employees 60-64 are not yet eligible for Medicare but are similar in many respects to recently age-eligible Medicare beneficiaries. We also estimate our model for current employees age 55 and younger as a comparison group. DATA COLLECTION METHODS: We select a random sample of retirees and employees age 60-64, as well as all current employees age 65+, from the OPM administrative database for the calendar year 2001. The plan choices available to each person are determined by the plans participating in their metropolitan statistical area. We match plan premium and attribute information from the Checkbook Guide to each plan in the enrollee's list of choices. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: We find that current workers 65+, 60-64, and non-Medicare eligible retirees are sensitive to variation in plan premiums. The premium elasticities for these groups are similar in magnitude to those of the age 55 and under employee group. Older workers and retirees not yet eligible for Medicare are willing to pay a substantial amount for plans with open provider networks. The willingness to pay for open networks is significantly greater for these groups than for younger employees. Willingness to pay for open network plans varies significantly by income, but varies little by age within group. CONCLUSIONS: Our finding that older workers and non-Medicare eligible retirees are sensitive to plan premiums suggests that choice-based reform of Medicare would lead to cost-conscious choices by Medicare beneficiaries. However, our finding that these groups are willing to pay more for open network plans than younger employees suggest that higher risk individuals may migrate toward higher benefit, higher cost plans. Our findings on the relationship between income and willingness to pay for open network plans suggest that means testing is a viable reform for lowering Medicare program costs.  (+info)

Downloadable! This paper empirically assesses the relative role of health plan prices, service quality and optional benefits in the decision to choose a health plan. We link representative German SOEP panel data from 2007 to 2010 to (i) health plan service quality indicators, (ii) measures of voluntary benefit provision on top of federally mandated benefits, and (iii) health plan prices for almost all German health plans. Mixed logit models incorporate a total of 1,700 health plan choices with more than 50 choice sets for each individual. The findings suggest that, compared to prices, health plan service quality and supplemental benefits play a minor role in making a health plan choice.
Under President Clintons health reform plan, nurse Joanne Bercier doesnt see a lot of bedpans in her future.Instead, shes looking forward to the role her profession has sought for decades: fuller
11:35 am Those of us who were around during the contentious debates over President Clintons health reform proposal recall all too well why the White House was unsuccessful in getting reform passed. Even though Congress reached out to propose compromises and alternative ideas, the Administration refused to accept anything but its own plan. In the end, Congress decided that achieving nothing was better than passing severely flawed legislation.. Policymakers need to take great care not to go down that same road this time around. And, based upon current rhetoric, there is reason for concern.. Yesterday, when the Senate Health, Education Labor and Pensions Committee passed its version of reform legislation, one senator said that opponents of the bill were obviously against universal healthcare. Earlier in the day, one leading policymaker said that those who opposed the current bills emerging from the House leadership and the Senate HELP Committee were "defending the status quo.". Thats simply not ...
2009 ISCEBS Survey Findings. Employers Anxious About Retiree Medical Promises: ISCEBS/Towers Perrin Survey Findings. A weak economy and uncertainty about the direction, timing, or impact of national health care reform have plan sponsors in a quandary as to how to address the rising cost and continuing administrative burden of their retiree medical plans. These findings are from a new survey from ISCEBS and Towers Perrin. The survey also revealed a sense of urgency about the need to make changes to costly retiree medical plans, an urgency compounded by the historical lack of marketplace solutions for pre-Medicare retirees, creating further anxiety among plan sponsors. The joint nationwide survey conducted by Towers Perrin and the International Society of Certified Employee Benefit Specialists, now in its fifth year, drew responses from 155 organizations on issues and objectives influencing retiree medical strategy and design.

Hillary Clinton thinks American workers arent getting enough of the fruits of their labors. Shes right: Wages havent risen in real terms because workers bargaining power has dwindled, so shareholders and owners keep walking away with the lions share of corporate profits. In her big economic speech last week, the candidate said she would offer firms a subsidy to give workers a taste of the profits, too. Yet theres virtually no robust evidence that workers would benefit - in fact, the lowest-paid workers might actually suffer under her plan.. Clintons plan would offer companies a two-year tax credit for 15 percent of profits shared with workers, with an even higher rate for small businesses, up to a cap of 10 percent of current wages. That means an employee earning $40,000 will be eligible for a profit-sharing payment of up to $4,000, which would net the employer a tax credit of $600. As I see it, the big questions about the plan are: 1) whether the profit-sharing portion of workers ...

Clintons speech was focused mainly on denouncing Trump for many of his more outlandish statements, and his tendency to be all over the map on foreign policy provided her with plenty of material to use. She scored her best hits when she criticized Trumps desire to be unpredictable and his ignorance of the relevant issues, but she was trying a bit too hard when she painted Trump as someone likely to start a war over a personal slight. She said that it was easy to imagine that Trump might start a war after being insulted by a foreign government (its actually not that easy to believe), but it is even easier to imagine Clinton initiating a war for other very questionable reasons. Clinton was attempting to present herself as the responsible candidate, but it is impossible for an informed listener to forget that she has never seen a military intervention she didnt want to support..

This study argues that President Obamas strong association with an issue like health care should polarize public opinion by racial attitudes and race. Consistent with that hypothesis, racial attitudes had a significantly larger impact on health care opinions in fall 2009 than they had in cross-sectional surveys from the past two decades and in panel data collected before Obama became the face of the policy. Moreover, the experiments embedded in one of those reinterview surveys found health care policies were significantly more racialized when attributed to President Obama than they were when these same proposals were framed as President Clintons 1993 reform efforts. Dozens of media polls from 1993 to 1994 and from 2009 to 2010 are also pooled together to show that with African Americans overwhelmingly supportive of Obamas legislative proposals, the racial divide in health care opinions was 20 percentage points greater in 2009-10 than it was over President Clintons plan back in 1993-94 ...
Resnick-Day is the activist with Greenpeace who questioned Clinton on Thursday. Dorozenski is the democracy campaign director at Greenpeace. Resnick-Day said after her exchange with Clinton: "To be clear, we are talking about more than just individual contributions from oil and gas employees. According to data compiled by Greenpeaces research department, Secretary Clintons campaign and the Super PAC supporting her have received more than $4.5 million from the fossil fuel industry during the 2016 election cycle. Eleven registered oil and gas industry lobbyists have bundled over $1 million to her campaign." See from Greenpeace: "Hillary Clintons Connection to the Oil and Gas Industry.". The Huffington Post in "Hillary Clintons Biggest Campaign Bundlers Are Fossil Fuel Lobbyists" reported last year: "Nearly all of the lobbyists bundling contributions for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clintons campaign have at one time or another worked for the fossil fuel industry.".

A critical piece of evidence cited in the Starr report was the finding that FBI tests concluded that the genetic markers of a semen stain on Monica S. Lewinskys dress, which matched President Clintons DNA, are characteristic of 1 in 7.87 trillion Caucasians. While there had been speculation in the media about the dress, the evidence released yesterday provides the first details of the sparring between prosecutors and the presidents lawyer, David E. Kendall, over the request to draw a sample of Clintons blood. A few hours before President Clinton began his videotaped grand jury testimony Aug. 17, the FBI laboratory informed Starrs office that the president was the source of the DNA taken from Monica S. Lewinskys navy blue dress "to a reasonable degree of scientific certainty." Handwritten notes on the one-page report read: "CAUC-7,870,000,000,000." The report concluded a flurry of activity that started July 29, when Lewinsky gave Starrs office a dress worn during a meeting with Clinton. ...
Certain Republicans - usually the ones more aligned with Trump - have been trying to spread a lot of rumors about Hillary Clintons health. To be sure, she does have at least one medical problem (a thyroid condition) that everyone knew about before this week. But were not supposed to honor the perennial health scare tactic, right? Recall that this was used against President Reagan in 1984 (to no avail) and John McCain in 2008 (it probably didnt have much effect), among others. But in Clintons case, there didnt seem to be any reason to believe this stuff.. ,Sure, people had been joking about her age for some months, but that was when Republicans expected to nominate someone substantially younger. Which they didnt.. ,But last week, Clinton had a massive coughing fit while delivering a speech. She made an effective joke of it, claiming that all talk of Trump made her allergic, but it was a scary moment for her campaign.. Scary enough that her people allowed her to attend a 9/11 commemoration ...
What? Before becoming Clintons chief of staff, Cheryl Mills worked for Clinton on an unpaid basis for four months while also working for New York University, in which capacity she negotiated on the schools behalf with the government of Abu Dhabi, where it was building a campus. In June 2012, Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedins status at State changed to "special government employee," allowing her to also work for Teneo, a consulting firm run by Bill Clintons former right-hand man. She also earned money from the Clinton Foundation and was paid directly by Hillary Clinton. In a separate case, ABC News reports that a top Clinton Foundation donor named Rajiv Fernando was placed on States International Security Advisory Board. Fernando appeared significantly less qualified than many of his colleagues, and was appointed at the behest of the secretarys office. Internal emails show that State staff first sought to cover for Clinton, and then Fernando resigned two days after ABCs inquiries. ...

President Bushs well‐​intentioned plan replaces President Clintons "Partnership for a New Generation of Vehicles." That multibillion‐​dollar fiasco, started in 1993, was designed to produce an 80‐​mile‐​per‐​gallon, five‐​passenger car. Simple physics demonstrates the impossibility of this, but politics beats science every time. Eight years later, the National Academy of Sciences pronounced it dead, killed by Isaac Newton. There are many lessons to be learned from the Partnership. Foremost is that when government gets in the science and technology business, it is largely inefficient compared to the private sector. The Partnership funneled money to the Big Three automakers - Ford, GM and DaimlerChrysler - to produce hybrid gas‐​electric vehicles. They didnt put one hybrid on the road.. Two non‐​participants, Honda and Toyota, had prototypes by 1996, and you can buy their products today. My Honda Insight has averaged 70.9 miles to the gallon over 43,000 miles. It ...
Excellent post.. Maybe the reason this hasnt happened in recent times is that presidential addresses to joint sessions of Congress have been limited and predictable. With rare exception, such addresses occur at Presidential inaugurations, State of the Union addresses, and addresses by visiting foreign leaders. These addresses are undoubtedly scheduled well in advance. Wiki lists very few recent presidential addresses that do not fall into these categories, and Ill refer to them as *unscheduled* addresses.. President George H.W. Bushs addresses at 1989-1993 joint sessions of Congress include: 1 inauguration, 4 State of the Union addresses, 12 addresses by foreign leaders, commemorations of the Bicentennial of the 1st Congress and the Centennial of Dwight Eisenhowers birth, and 2 unscheduled addresses - concerning the invasion of Kuwait and the end of the Gulf War.. During President Clintons terms, his addresses at 1993-2001 joint sessions of Congress were: 2 inaugurations, 8 State of the ...

At least, thats what a group of space researchers think. And theyre trying to prove it by invoking a little-known remnant of President Clintons last days called the "Data Quality Act" that went into force in October of this year. The filing, dated October 31, 2002, gives NASA 40 days to address the complaint that there is faulty data on Arizona State Universitys THEMIS Web site. THEMIS (Thermal Emission Imaging System) is the crown jewel of ASUs science department that takes and analyzes images from an infrared camera on NASAs Odyssey satellite and releases them to the public. THEMIS also conducts expansive educational programs for students, scientists and interested observers. But its reputation is now being trashed in ...

The presence and behavior of private labels add a significant dimension to price competition among the food systems subsectors. Recent surveys in two college towns in Texas show a larger price difference between national brands and private labels than previous studies. The increase in price differences are attributed to horizontal and vertical influences on prices and also to advertising and the proliferation of brands. This competitive process gives the consumer the advantage of new products and products with brand appeal (national brands) as well as low cost copies (private labels) of these successful products.

Many Americans are rightly enraged about the proposed healthcare reform plans. Retirees are among the largest group making their voice heard. Why do we care so much? In the last decade nearly eight million retirees have seen their earned healthcare benefits, which they sacrificed wages and paid time off to achieve, cancelled by their former employers. The federal government said that this was perfectly legal. There are another 18.5 million American baby boomers and retirees like me who are dependent on earned healthcare benefits from our former employer. We paid for these benefits by accepting lower wages and less vacation and sick days.. ...

The Optional Retirement Plan is a defined contribution or account-based plan created by the university. The university and the employee contribute a percentage of the employees pay and the retiree receives the account balance, including investment earnings. Effective July 1, 2015, ORP is only available to newly hired faculty members, Officers of the University and Senior Administrators.. ORP does not offer a medical plan upon retirement. Employees select their own investments through one of four investment companies, whose information is listed below.. For help, refer to the Decision Guide.. Upon termination of all employment and after a 45-day period, employees may leave the funds with the fund sponsor, request a lump sum distribution or roll funds over into another qualified plan or IRA.

Wording regarding the PPO Providers (when applicable) are the same as with individual Major Medical plans. As a rule, Provider-type plans are established the same for Group and Individual plans. Note the illustrated Schedule of Benefits on the first page shows a difference in approved and non-approved Providers in coinsurance percentages. Since some groups are multi-state, there can be special consideration given if there are employees in an area not served by participating Providers. Some plans allow a choice with higher co-payments or some other added cost if approved Providers are not used. Again, because the size of the group determines the type of plan and the benefits provided, there are more alternatives to this and other similar provisions than could be outlined in a text of this size and type ...
By now everyone has dug their way out of the snow. In the process, they have all learned some lessons that may be valuable the next time there is a weather emergency. The problem is that most people tend to forget lessons learned as soon as things are back to normal. The time to prepare for an emergency is before it happens. When I was in the military we spent a lot of time creating emergency medical plans. We had hurricane plans. We had snow emergency plans. We had power failure plans. One of the things that we learned was that the best time to see how good the plans were was directly after the emergency. My current plan for emergencies includes having a generator that will power my well and septic system. It will also power my kitchen circuits for my refrigerator. The plan includes having a charcoal grill to use for cooking if the power goes out. It includes using a wood burning stove for heat if the heat fails. It includes having a battery powered radio to keep updated. It includes leaving my ...
I agree that the pricing in health care is often arbitrary and capricious. Of course some suppliers are going to try to soak third party payers. But I dont think simply changing the payer (from private to public) or having a government bureaucracy set prices for millions of line items is the solution. My diagnosis is that health care lacks the one thing we have for most every other product or service: shopping.. Now, you try to head off this argument with a few folks who claim shopping is impossible in health care. But that is absurd. There is a large and growing community of us who have real health insurance, rather than pre-paid medical plans, which means we have high deductibles. We pay all of our regular expenses out of pocket, and maintain health insurance for large, unpredictable, potentially bankrupting expenses.. I must admit that shopping for health care seemed odd and a bit intimidating at first, having lived for years in the world of gold-plated, pay-for-everything corporate health ...

Well, I am a 26 year old male, and I ride BMX (Stunts on bicycles) for a living. Because of my lifestyle, I do constantly sit (As my profession would dictate I do so as well as my general laziness, so I am guessing it is hemorrhoids). I would go to a doctor, but there isnt any medical plans for appearing in BMX videos, so I would at least like to be able to go to the doctor and give him an idea where to start the diagnosis, as to limit the cost (As if it is hemorrhoids, I can get some over the counter medicine for that). Also, bear with me as I am from NY, and as I am writing this I too am laughing my **s off by reading some of this (It just sounds funny...) From my anus hole (I figured this would be better than my alternative) running up as a straight line up until my testicles I have a very bad rash like infection. It does feel like burning and itching (Sometimes simultaneously, sometimes only burning, other times only an itching feeling), it is seriously sensitive to the touch, and chaffing ...
08:32] The nurse had a lovely bedside (phone-side?) manner. She walked me through a progression of of questions about my symptoms and habits. She helped me define my lightheadedness, and discerned that, because the objects in the room werent seemingly swimming, that I was merely light-headed, as opposed to experiencing vertigo. Among the things I mentioned as out-of-ordinary were the poor sleep, the act-up of my RLS, and that, due to my lapse in refilling, I hadnt taken my daily sertraline (an ongoing anti-anxiety medication) in four nights. She dismissed the latter two experiences as irrelevant to my lightheadedness and strongly suggested that I have someone drive me to be seen by a medical professional. She attempted to make an appointment with the clinic, but due to overbooking she recommended I visit the urgent care associated with my medical plan. I thanked the nurse and decided to proceed with a meeting already in progress ...
Mr. Speaker, Mr. Vice President, Members of the 105th Congress, distinguished guests, and my fellow Americans. I think I should start by saying, thanks for inviting me back. I come before you tonight with a challenge as great as any in our peacetime history and a plan of action to meet that challenge, to prepare our people for the bold new world of the 21st century.. We have much to be thankful for. With 4 years of growth, we have won back the basic strength of our economy. With crime and welfare rolls declining, we are winning back our optimism, the enduring faith that we can master any difficulty. With the cold war receding and global commerce at record levels, we are helping to win an unrivaled peace and prosperity all across the world.. My fellow Americans, the state of our Union is strong. But now we must rise to the decisive moment, to make a nation and a world better than any we have ever known. The new promise of the global economy, the information age, unimagined new work, ...
Posted on 08/08/2008 9:39:28 AM PDT by neverdem. Bill Clinton made a plea yesterday for a new emphasis on monogamy as a key element in the battle against Aids. The former US president, not noted for his ability to keep his own marriage vows, said it was very important to change peoples attitudes to sex. In an interview with the BBC recorded in Africa, Mr Clinton said that increasing support for monogamy was not just a problem for the continent worst hit by Aids but for the world. To pretend we can ever get hold of this without dealing with that the idea of unprotected sexual relations with unlimited numbers of partners I think would be naïve, he said. Experts believe that the nature of Africans relationships may help explain the continents high rate of Aids. Research suggests a higher frequency of overlapping sexual partnerships. Mr Clinton said the main challenge to fighting Aids in Africa was improving health services, not a lack of money. You can get the universal treatment the moneys ...

Once Hillary became the First Lady, she allegedly arranged for the firing of seven career employees of the White House travel office, so that she could install her own cronies. "We should get our people in and get those people out," she reportedly told one of her aides. Not only did Hillary push aside hard-working public servants to help out the Clintons friends. She reportedly had the reputation of "those people" trashed with false accusations of financial mismanagement to justify her actions. These ordinary citizens, whose lives were disrupted, lost their jobs because they were not her people worthy of her respect. They may not have been in the "deplorables" basket but, as far as Hillary was concerned, they belonged in the disposable basket ...

Many urged President Bush to agree with former President Clintons policy on stem cell research and that was; that the Congressional ban on funding embryo research would not be broken if the support was provided for only stem cell research and not for human cloning and no embryos would be destroyed to acquire these stem cells. President bush on the other hand decides to go against the former Presidents views and set his own standards. On August 9,2001 the President addressed the issue to the people by first explaining that it was about spending tax dollars on research for stem cells taken from human embryos. He further explained that many existed and they were taken from a processes known as vitro fertilization, which is used when couples are trying to have a child and the embryos that are extra are sometimes donated to science for stem cell research. The ones previously created are all privately funded, but scientist believes again that this research will lead to many cures for several ...

What does this have to do with Benghazi, you might ask.. The answer is everything. The reason Republicans began investigating Clintons private email server in the first place several years ago is because of Benghazi.. There are many different conspiracy theories about the attack on the American embassy in Benghazi, but the general idea behind the Republican investigation of Clintons email server was that the embassy attackers somehow used information contained in her emails to plan their attack. And that sounds even more ridiculous when you say it out loud.. Theres still no evidence that Clintons private email server was ever breached or that the embassy attackers give two shits about any emails, but the chicken isnt going to fuck itself and Republicans apparently have a whole new conspiracy theory.. It appears the new theory is that Strzok cleared Hillary Clinton of wrongdoing because he didnt like Trump.. I suppose that might raise questions for us under different circumstances, however ...
