    Health Care 2020: The Politics of Medicare for All and Obamacare

    Monday Feb 3
    7 pm - 9 pm

    Kendal at Ithaca
    2230 N Triphammer Rd, Ithaca, NY 14850, USA

    Health Care 2020: The Politics of Medicare for All and Obamacare A Presentation by The League of Women Voters of Tompkins County Monday, February 3, 2020 at 7 PM – 9 PM   Kendal of Ithaca Auditorium, 2230 N Triphammer Rd, Ithaca, New York 14850   Healthcare is a hot topic this election cycle, once again.  

    With so many proposed plans, it is hard to differentiate the pros and cons. Dr. Brian Coyne, a federal health care lobbyist, will compare the various national health care proposals (ACA, Medicare for All, Medicare by Choice, Public Option, etc).  A representative from New York Health Care Plan will present that version of a State based health care system.

    ***********
    Dr. Brian D. Coyne was appointed vice president, federal affairs at Magellan Health in January 2017, a national healthcare company that provides mental health, substance use disorders and pharmacy benefit management services. Previous to this position, he served as senior vice president for federal government relations at Amerigroup, a multi-state managed care plan that provided health care coverage for low-income families and children, low-income seniors and people with disabilities through the Medicaid program. He served as chief of staff of the U.S. Social Security Administration under President Bill Clinton from 1994 to 2001 and as deputy chief of staff to Rhode Island Governor Bruce Sundlun from 1991-1994.

    Dr. Coyne holds a Bachelor of Arts degree, cum laude in Government, from Cornell University, as well as a Master in Public Administration degree from the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. He recently graduated with the degree of Doctor of Law and Policy from Northeastern University. His thesis dealt with Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act.

There will also be hands-on demonstrations on the use of basic tools and kids will have a chance to take things apart.

    Climate Crisis is Serious … Are We?

    Monday Feb 24
    7 pm - 9 pm

    Tompkins County Public Library
    101 E Green St, Ithaca, NY 14850, USA

    Australia is burning with fires having destroyed at least 2,000 homes and killed at least 28 people so far. Hundreds of millions of animals may have already died in these fires. The United Nations warns that more than 2 million people will likely face severe hunger in Somalia as a result of drought and a disappointing spring rainy season. Large numbers of people across the globe are leaving their homes due to loss of livelihood following drought, soil erosion, and desertification. We see the effect of these and other factors at the southern borders of the United States. All of these have been fueled by global warming, much of it due to human activities. To speak of “climate change” as if it is something gradual or in the distant future is not enough. We need to recognize that we are facing a crisis and act now.

    The League of Women Voters of Tompkins County (LWV-TC) hopes everyone will begin the new year by re-energizing our efforts to confront the evolving crisis of Climate Change. It is clear that we must act immediately and effectively. What is needed and what should we do? To address these questions, the League is holding the program “Climate Crisis is Serious … Are We?” on Monday, February 24 at 7p.m. in the Borg Warner Room of the Tompkins County Public Library. We are pleased to have as speakers Art Weaver, the head of the Ithaca Chapter of Extinction Rebellion; Nick Goldsmith, the Sustainability Coordinator of the City and Town of Ithaca; and Cheyenne Carter and Marisa Lansing of the Sunrise Movement, an American youth-led organization.

    Dr. Weaver will present recent data on the crisis, goals of the Extinction Rebellion movement, and explain what it is doing locally and internationally. Nick Goldsmith will discuss the City of Ithaca’s “Green New Deal” and Green Building Policy. Cheyenne Carter and Marisa Lansing will discuss the goals, activities and future plans of the Sunrise Movement both locally and throughout the United States. Q and A to follow.

    Join the League and our co-sponsors, Campaign for Renewable Energy, Fossil Free Tompkins, Sustainable Tompkins, and Tompkins County Environmental Management Council
