Day 55/67 of GED in Five Months, Linear Inequalities, and Health Care

So, why do you think that it may be important to understand linear inequalities as they relate to Health Care, especially to health care outcomes for Black, Latino, and White Americans?

Today’s reading:

Although the Affordable Care Act (ACA) lead to large coverage gains, some groups remain at higher risk of being uninsured, lacking access to care, and experiencing worse health outcomes. For example, as of 2018, Hispanics are two and a half times more likely to be uninsured than Whites (19.0% vs. 7.5%) and individuals with incomes below poverty are four times as likely to lack coverage as those with incomes at 400% of the federal poverty level or above (17.3% vs. 4.3%).”

Stayed on Freedom’s Call
(free copies at:…)
includes two ‘imagination-rich’ walking tours, with songs, of Washington, DC. New interviews and research are woven into stories of old struggles shared by both the Jewish and African-American communities in the capital city.

Shared histories are explored from a new perspective of cultural parallels and parallel institution-building which brought the two communities together culturally and historically.

  1. This is one reason I support socialized health care. I am a Christian Socialist.

    I recall a meme from a few years back: No, Barack Obama is not a brown-skinned socialist who gives away health care. You’re thinking of Jesus.

            1. After I finish adding saints to a month, I prepare the “Plan A” list for the next month.

              Speaking of making plans years in advance, I have years’ worth of Bible-blogging/study plans.

            2. Likewise! I have some years worth of Torah study and a little-known siddur (prayerbook) blogging plans, but I found a few months ago that this Baby Acres/Floors project just took up too much of my worrying time to let it wait, and it ended up pushing all other projects aside. I do feel relief now, at having finished the rough draft, and I am very much looking forward to seeing your upcoming saints, not to mention much curiosity about your Bible study ideas. Like a devout Anglican friend with whom I watched most of B5 in London, I suspect that your perspective on the Biblical texts may have a very interesting line of thought to inform my ways of looking at them.

              Assuming that we are given the years to find out together, that is.

              Stay safe, Good Sir!

            3. Balance, born of the convergence of theological traditions, is one of the advantages of an Anglican (in the collegial, not Donatistic sense) approach. Dr. Phillip Cary says that Roman Catholics and Protestants need each other. Those traditions, mingling in Anglicanism, inform each other. Also, I, as a Christian, stand on the spiritual shoulders of Jews and Judaism. I acknowledge this great debt and respect the tradition from which my tradition emerged.

              My plans (so far) are:
              The Inter-Lutheran Commission of Worship Lectionary (1973)–three years;
              Luke-Acts (as a two-volume work);
              Wisdom Literature (Job, Song of Songs, Ecclesiastes, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiasticus/Sirach, Wisdom of Solomon);
              1 Peter, 2, Peter, and Jude; and
              1-3 John.
