The Medicaid Experiment in Arkansas: Thousands Lost Coverage, Few Gained Jobs

  The Medicaid Experiment in Arkansas: Thousands Lost Coverage, Few Gained Jobs Arkansas’ experience in implementing work requirements for Medicaid recipients—a program halted by a federal judge—illustrates the potential pitfalls for the growing number of states pursuing their own measures.But earlier this year, after an emergency ambulance trip to a hospital here for splitting pain in his shoulder and head, a nurse delivered upsetting news: He had lost his coverage due to a new state work-requirement rule.

She said she works at night and on the weekends because it gives her the flexibility to take her kids to medical appointments and to deal with health insurance Bill O ' Reilly " doesn ' t have a clue ," says the mom with 4 jobs .

Beto O'Rourke slams 'disgraced TV host' Bill O ' Reilly who doubted story of woman working 4 jobs . " Bill says he didn’ t sexually harass anyone. Despite settling for million. I don’ t believe him . My aunt worked 4 jobs and raised 2 kids as a single mom , never slept & ended up surviving

In Tuesday's Democratic presidential debate, Beto O'Rourke recounted meeting a woman he said is "working four jobs" while raising a child with disabilities, highlighting her struggle as an example of rising U.S. income inequality.

But a firestorm ensued when former Fox News host Bill O'Reilly responded with a skeptical tweet: "Beto says he met a woman working FOUR jobs. And raising a special needs child. I don't believe him. Sorry."

In response, O'Rourke shot back a photo of himself with the woman, whom he identified as Gina, and her daughter, Summer.

In fact, Gina Giambone doesn't work four jobs — she works five, she told CBS MoneyWatch on Wednesday. She also sleeps in her car because she can't afford to pay rent in Las Vegas, Giambone said. Because none of her jobs are full time, she cobbles together work between "gig economy" work as well as service jobs including cleaning homes.

Google Pixel 4's facial recognition tech works when owners' eyes are closed

  Google Pixel 4's facial recognition tech works when owners' eyes are closed Earlier this week, the BBC's Chris Fox reported that the Pixel 4's facial recognition unlock feature works even when you're unconscious -- no eyes needed. Raising concern about the security of upcoming Pixel 4 series owners, BBC technology reporter Chris Fox tweeted earlier this week that "The Pixel 4 facial recognition works even if you're asleep/dead." In response to the worry that this tweet caused, Google told the BBC Thursday simply that "We will continue to improve Face Unlock over time" and that this is how the phone will go on sale next week. This would allow a Pixel 4 to be unlocked while its owner is sleeping or unconscious.

Bill O ' Reilly had said he did not "believe" a story Beto O'Rourke shared to highlight income inequality in the U.S. during Tuesday's Democratic 2020 debate. Asked whether he believed a wealth tax would be "the best way" to address income inequality, O'Rourke said he believed a tax that would make the

O'Reilly doesn't "have a clue about what life is," she said. "It's reality. I see it every day that people can't make ends meet."

Giambone, 59, said she earns money as a home health aide to her daughter, for which she's paid for about an hour of work each day, and by working delivery jobs for three companies — DoorDash, Uber Eats and Postmates. She supplements her income by cleaning a friend's house.

In all, she estimates she makes about $300 a week, the equivalent of $15,600 a year. "I worked for three billion-dollar businesses," Giambone said, fully aware of the irony.

Giambone is looking for a full-time job, but suspects employers are put off by her age. In the meantime, working delivery jobs allows her to keep her daughter, Summer, in the car with her. "She has the mind of child," she said. "She needs protection and she needs me with her."

WASHINGTON — Bill O ' Reilly 's attack against former Rep. Beto O'Rourke is backfiring. Beto says he met a woman working FOUR jobs . And raising a special needs child. I don’ t believe him . O'Rourke shared anecdote of meeting the woman and her daughter when he was asked a question

O ’ Reilly doubted the story, and made his views known, while live-tweeting the debate: “Beto says he met a woman working FOUR jobs . Bill says he didn’ t sexually harass anyone. Despite settling for million. I don’ t believe him . Maybe you have an extra 32 million to help her out.

Giambone, who said she's actually a long-term Bernie Sanders supporter, said she met O'Rourke at an event where he was speaking. She went because she was curious about his views, and liked how he connected with her daughter.

"He's removed from reality"

Other families with children with special needs also told CBS MoneyWatch they work multiple jobs to keep up with medical bills. In some cases, that offers the flexibility they require to attend to their children's health care needs.

O'Reilly "is removed from reality," said Sheletta Brundidge, a mother of four, three of whom have autism, in Cottage Grove, Minnesota. "What does he think, we have money trees in our backyard?"

Bill Belichick has learned not to challenge pass interference

  Bill Belichick has learned not to challenge pass interference The NFL uses such a high standard for overturning pass interference on instant replay that some coaches have learned it’s just not worth wasting a challenge.

Todd Chrisley sues tax officials because 'department head had a relationship with his estranged daughter to smear him by persuading her to share personal information'.

Brundidge said she had a full-time job at a television station in Houston, but when one of her children was first diagnosed with autism, she and her husband had to reassess. She asked her employer for a part-time job because she needed more flexibility, but they didn't have one. Now, she works four part-time jobs.

"I didn't start out working four part-time jobs," she said. "I started with one, then I had to pick up another one."

Brundige works as a part-time producer at a radio station, writing for a local newspaper, blogging and hosting a podcast called "Two Haute Mamas." She said she works at night and on the weekends because it gives her the flexibility to take her kids to medical appointments and to deal with health insurance companies.

O'Reilly's comments struck her as "unbelievable," she said. "He doesn't know anything about our struggle," she said, adding that he should spend the day with her family to understand the stresses on families with special-needs children.

Medical costs

Among the most pressing of those issues — high medical costs.

One woman with a special-needs child, who asked to remain anonymous so as not to anger one of her family's employers, told CBS MoneyWatch that she and her husband struggle despite their six-figure income. Although her husband is a physician with health insurance, he works three side jobs in addition to his full-time job in order to make money to cover their daughter's health care costs, she said.

Many medical costs for special-needs children aren't covered by health insurance, parents said. Brundige noted that her family has spent thousands on special equipment to make the house safe for their children, such as a $1,900 door with multiple locks so their youngest child won't run out of the house.

But the parents hope O'Reilly's tweet brings attention to the both the financial and emotional challenges of parenting special-needs children. Said Brundidge: "The struggle of parents with a special needs children is real and it's important and it's something we need to talk about in these debates."

With his usual heedless candor, Whitaker insisted to his Fox News host on Wednesday that "abuse of power" by a president is not illegal and thus not necessarily grounds for impeachment.
