Benefits like employer tips and RRSP contributions to be part of BC

by admin
first_imgVICTORIA – The British Columbia government has released the fine print on its new employer health tax as it diverts the cost of medical services plan premiums away from individuals.The tax notice says the annual payroll tax will apply to employers starting in January 2019 and will, among other things, cover salaries, bonuses, vacation pay, tips paid through an employer, and employer contributions to registered retirement savings plans.The NDP government has already said employers with a B.C. payroll of more than $1.5 million will pay 1.95 per cent of their total payroll, while businesses with a payroll of between $500,000 and $1.5 million will pay 2.95 per cent after $500,000 is subtracted from that payroll amount.Firms with a payroll at $500,000 and below won’t pay the employer health tax, which the Finance Ministry says in a news release ensures that 85 per cent of businesses will be exempt.Employers with a B.C. payroll tax over $600,000 and charities with a payroll over $1.6 million will be required to make quarterly instalments.Finance Minister Carole James says the government is eliminating regressive medical services plan premiums and returning about $1,800 each year to families.“While other provinces scrapped MSP premiums, the former government doubled and downloaded these unfair fees into middle-class individuals, families and seniors.”Note to readers: This is a corrected story. A previous version contained incorrect information on how the tax is applied on payrolls between $500,000 and $1.5 million.last_img

In states Democrats start delivering on health care pledges

by admin
first_imgSEATTLE — Riding the momentum from November’s elections, Democratic leaders in the states are wasting no time delivering on their biggest campaign promise — to expand access to health care and make it more affordable.The first full week of state legislative sessions and swearings-in for governors saw a flurry of proposals.In his initial actions, newly elected California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced plans to expand Medicaid to those in the country illegally up to age 26, implement a mandate that everyone buy insurance or face a fine, and consolidate the state’s prescription drug purchases in the hope that it will dramatically lower costs.Washington Gov. Jay Inslee proposed a public health insurance option for people who are not covered by Medicaid or private employers and have trouble affording policies on the private market.Democrats in several states where they now control the legislature and governor’s office, including New Mexico, are considering ways that people who are uninsured but make too much to qualify for Medicaid or other subsidized coverage can buy Medicaid policies.And in the nation’s most populous city, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio announced a publicly run plan to link the uninsured, who already receive treatment in city hospitals, with primary care.It’s all in keeping with the main theme Democratic candidates promoted on the campaign trail in 2018.They touted the benefits of former President Barack Obama’s health overhaul — such as protections for people with pre-existing conditions, allowing young adults to remain on their parents’ health insurance policies and expanded coverage options for lower-income Americans. At the same time, they painted Republicans as seeking to eliminate or greatly reduce health care options and protections.“Once you give something to somebody, it’s pretty hard to take it away, and I think we see that with how the support for the (Affordable Care Act) has grown over the last two years,” said Washington House Rep. Eileen Cody, who is leading the state’s public option proposal.The actions also represent a pushback to steps taken by the Trump administration and congressional Republicans to undermine the Affordable Care Act.The GOP tax law stripped away the individual mandate, which was intended to stabilize insurance markets by encouraging younger and healthier people to buy policies. And last summer, the Trump administration said it would freeze payments under an “Obamacare” program that protects insurers with sicker patients from financial losses. That move is expected to contribute to higher premiums.The Democratic proposals fall short of providing universal health care, a goal of many Democrats but also an elusive one because of its cost. In recent years, California, Colorado and Vermont have all considered and then abandoned attempts to create state-run health care systems.Still, many Democrats are eager to take steps that get them closer to that.“This is not just a moral right,” Inslee said in announcing his public option proposal this past week. “It is an economic wisdom, and this is very possible.”Some lawmakers in Colorado, where Democrats now control the legislature and governor’s office, are proposing a state-run health insurance plan similar to that announced by Inlsee. It would reach those who don’t qualify for federal assistance or who live in rural areas with few health care choices.Both states plan to rely on their agencies that administer Medicaid, the state-federal program that provides health coverage for roughly one-in-five Americans. Republicans are skeptical about whether the states can afford it, since they already pick up a portion of Medicaid costs.“This is about having the government competing in the private market. Medicare-for-all will be priced out,” Washington state Rep. Joe Schmick said.Taking incremental steps to increase coverage options and make health care more affordable may be a smarter strategy than pursuing a costly and complicated all-or-nothing proposal for universal coverage, said Katherine Hempstead, senior policy adviser at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.“Everybody wants to pay less for health care,” she said.Democrats now have more leverage to experiment. Campaign messaging around health care helped them flip seven governor’s seats to bolster their numbers to 23 across the country and win back several state legislative chambers. They gained full control of state government in several states, including New York and Nevada.That power will allow them to consider health care expansions that Republicans have resisted.In Nevada, for example, the state’s Democratically controlled legislature passed a bill in 2017 that would have let anyone in the state buy into a Medicaid insurance plan, similar to the option being pushed in New Mexico. But former Gov. Brian Sandoval, a Republican, vetoed it.The new governor, Democrat Steve Sisolak, is forming a committee to look at health care options, including the possibility of requiring everyone to have insurance. In addition to the California proposal, that mandate already is in place in Massachusetts and New Jersey, with Vermont following in 2020.It’s a similar dynamic in New Mexico, where Democratic lawmakers have talked for years about allowing people, including non-citizens, to buy into Medicaid if they cannot afford insurance any other way.Colin Baillio, policy director for the advocacy group Health Action New Mexico, said a bill is being drafted with the goal of getting it adopted this year and implemented for 2020. The optimism comes because the new governor, Michelle Lujan Grisham, is a Democrat.“Folks are going to need to have health care one way or another,” he said. “We think health coverage is a good investment for our state.”___Follow Sally Ho at https://twitter.com/_sallyho and Geoff Mulvihill at https://twitter.com/geoffmulvihillSally Ho And Geoff Mulvihill, The Associated Presslast_img

UN agencies voice concern over worsening violence in Gaza

by admin
13 June 2007United Nations organizations said today that they are “gravely concerned” about the escalating violence in Gaza, where 59 people – including two UN workers – have been killed and 273 others injured since the weekend. This afternoon, a refuse collector with the UN agency tasked with helping Palestinian refugees was caught in the crossfire while on the job and killed in Khan Younis, and yesterday another worker was hit by bullets in Beach Camp and died in hospital.Expressing his deep sadness, John Ging, Director of the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East said “we at UNRWA will not forget their bravery and commitment at this most difficult time.”He extended his personal condolences to the families of those who lost their lives while carrying out their duties and “attempting to fulfil their humanitarian responsibilities to the Palestinian people.”Due to the rise in the threat level UNRWA staff face, Mr. Ging said that that agency has “no choice” but to cut back the agency’s operations.UNRWA Commissioner General Karen AbuZayd has temporarily suspended operations, except for the provision of essential medical services and emergency food distributions.“The grave incidents and the increasingly desperate situation in Gaza underline once more the need for all parties to show the utmost restraint and allow humanitarian organizations such as UNRWA to fulfil their responsibilities toward the Palestinian people,” Mr. Ging observed.Kevin Kennedy, the UN Humanitarian Coordinator in the occupied Palestinian territory, spoke on behalf of all UN organizations in the area in reaffirming the UN’s commitment to continue its humanitarian work in Gaza to help Palestinians in need.“There is a need for immediate efforts to restore calm, protect the lives of innocent Palestinians and ensure the safe and secure distribution of emergency aid,” Mr. Kennedy said, noting how the ongoing violence is putting the UN’s aid efforts at risk.UN organizations jointly said they were troubled by reports of attacks on hospitals and ambulances as well as extrajudicial killings, which cast into doubt whether international humanitarian and human rights law are being followed.They also voiced concern over the humanitarian effects on the population from the heavy street fighting, which impedes civilian access to and the UN’s delivery of crucial health services and food supplies, with gun battles taking place in two UNRWA facilities.

Seeking to foster hope UN launches 3 billion appeal to help 50

by admin
Seeking to foster hope among people affected by conflicts, natural disasters and other crises, the United Nations today launched a $3 billion appeal aimed at funding relief programmes covering 50 million people in 30 different countries and regions."We are here to ask for help in providing food, shelter, medicine and other life-saving assistance," UN Deputy Secretary-General Louise Fréchette said at the appeal's official launch in Bern, Switzerland. Stressing the need to address the root causes of humanitarian emergencies, she added, "humanitarian assistance is not an end in itself, but must be accompanied by efforts to build a bridge from disaster to development."Ms. Fréchette appealed to donors to increase their contributions, noting that last year, the UN received just over half of what was requested. Overall levels of humanitarian funding have remained the same for the past decade, despite increasing levels of need.She also called for States to fund all emergency responses, not just those in the media spotlight. Donors, she pointed out, "have demonstrated a real capacity to help roll back human suffering" where the cameras are - most recently in Afghanistan, and before that in Kosovo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Rwanda. "But the international community has been far less forthcoming in other cases where there is equal need, but less publicity," she said, citing the civil conflict in Burundi as an example of a "forgotten emergency" that has elicited scant attention despite having claimed the lives of as many as 300,000 civilians.The appeals cover assistance to hungry, displaced and otherwise vulnerable people living in Afghanistan, Angola, Burundi, Chechnya and neighbouring republics in the Russian Federation, Cote d'Ivoire and its region, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Other countries and regions slated to receive aid include Eritrea, Ethiopia, the Great Lakes Region of Africa, Guinea, Indonesia, Liberia, the occupied Palestinian territory, the Republic of Congo, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Southern Africa, the Sudan, Tajikistan and Uganda.The launch of the "consolidated appeals" - so named because they cover the combined requirements of all concerned UN agencies - is also being held today and tomorrow in seven other cities around the world: Washington, D.C., Brussels, Luxembourg, New York, the Hague, Tokyo and Canberra.In New York today, Carolyn McAskie, the UN Deputy Emergency Relief Coordinator, noted that although the appeals cover chronic, long-term emergencies, like that unfolding in the Sudan, the UN was also finding cause for hope that in some cases - such as Afghanistan, Sierra Leone and Angola - the relief effort could move from the emergency to the development and reconstruction phase."These appeals are the lifeline for millions of people around the world," she said, echoing the Deputy Secretary-General's call for funding to countries and regions that are not receiving media attention. Because humanitarian crises are by nature volatile, the UN reviews and updates its appeals throughout the year, adjusting requirements in response to changing needs and launching new requests in response to sudden disasters.* * *

UN war crimes tribunal dismisses bid to acquit Miloševic

by admin
In a decision handed down in The Hague, the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) ruled that Mr. Miloševic must answer charges relating to events in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and Kosovo during the Balkan wars of the 1990s. The decision was not unanimous: Presiding Judge Patrick Robinson of Jamaica and Judge Iain Bonomy of the United Kingdom ruled separately against Mr. Miloševic, while Judge O-Gon Kwon of the Republic of Korea issued a dissenting judgment on some of the questions. The ICTY also granted several challenges in favour of Mr. Miloševic, finding there was insufficient evidence to support certain allegations relating to some of the charges. The legal motions for acquittal had been filed by so-called Friends of the Court, lawyers appointed by the ICTY to help ensure Mr. Miloševic receives a fair trial, at the conclusion of the prosecution case in February. The former Yugoslav leader does not recognize the court. In dismissing the motion for acquittal, the ICTY rejected several submissions regarding Bosnia. The judges found there is enough evidence to show that there was a joint criminal enterprise – which included members of the Bosnian Serb leadership – to destroy part of Bosnia’s Muslims as a group; that Mr. Miloševic was part of the enterprise; and that the enterprise committed genocide. The court ruled there is enough evidence to show that there was an armed conflict in Kosovo before the bombing campaign by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) began in March 1999. The judges also ruled against a submission that some of the charges regarding Croatia should be dismissed because Croatia was not an independent state before early 1992 and therefore the conflict before then was not international. But the ICTY found that some of the allegations relating to charges in Croatia and Bosnia could not be sustained by the evidence, and granted the motions confined to them. Mr. Miloševic faces charges of genocide, crimes against humanity and violations of the laws or customs of war. He is expected to begin his defence case next month.
