Because the Children’s Health Insurance Progam has not reauthorized, Many children will be losing their health insurance coverage.
Many states are notifying clients that they will no longer have access to the Children’s Health Insurance Program, known as CHIP.
The Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) – formerly known as the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) – is a program administered by the United States Department of Health and Human Services that provides matching funds to states for health insurance to families with children.
CHIP provides low-cost health coverage to children in families that earn too much money to qualify for Medicaid. In some states, CHIP covers pregnant women. Each state offers CHIP coverage.
According to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, a majority of states will “exhaust all available federal CHIP funding” by March 2018.
Several states indicated plans to transition children from separate CHIP programs to Medicaid such as Idaho and Oregan. Some states such as Hawaii, Utah, and Alaska plan to use the supplemental funding to cover the program. They face the challenge of plugging up the funding hole left by no federal funding.

Single mom Michelle Boyle was hit with the realization that she had no retirement as her kids became adults. Her solution: She built a personal tiny house for herself and plans to build more to rent out as income for her retirement years.
Many people are trying to lower their cost of housing by adopting a simpler lifestyle. Tiny homes may be one answer.
There are television shows, forums, groups, communities and youtube channels that are dedicated to building and living in tiny homes. Could tiny homes be the answer for the high cost of homes for cash-strapped single moms and retirees?
All this time you’ve been sitting on your money maker – no not that! Your panties can net you 6 figures a year! If you don’t wear panties you may want to start if you need extra cash or an easy way to make a living. It’s a low risk – high reward anonymous transaction.
Buying used panties isn’t new. The practice has been around forever, but the internet had made the exchange easy and anonymous. Japan used to have vending machines of used underwear, but removed them when they thought that men were wearing and selling them.
Now, it’s not as easy as just selling a pair of panties to a faceless character. For the high price, you may need to wear that one pair of panty for a full month. Don’t even think of cheating the customer. Those who pay high prices are panty connoisseurs – they know how a month-long worn panty should feel and smell.
The average price for one day worn panties tend to be $15 to $30, but you set your own price.
1) It’s worth repeating – don’t try to cheat the customer! They will be able to tell the difference.
2) Enclose the panties inside a plastic bag for preservation.
3) Get MORE money by charging for extras – spit, skid marks, pee, etc.
4) Create a persona to stand out from the others.
Eight months into the new presidency and there is still a lot of uncertainty of what’s to come. What is certain is that President Trump will cut domestic (safety net ) spending, health care will be changed again, and the tax code will change to eliminate the head of household option that single mothers tend to file under. All the changes can be overwhelming, but here are 5 things to do to survive and thrive in the new Trump Economy.
You will have more control of your income and time with a business – creating your own life/work balance. You get to determine when you work, where you work and with whom you work. if you want to work while on vacation or not or even when you take a vacation is all up to you.
The bulk of taxes generated in this country comes from earned – W2 income. The tax code for businesses was meant to reward risk takers and job creators. You can write off many business expenses from business furniture, office that is maintained inside the home, food (business lunch, dinner) trips to conduct business or advance training that improves. A book by Bernard B. Kamoroff C.P.A. explains the 475 tax breaks for businesses or the self-employed.
Trump is a business man and the greatest tax cuts are going to those who have assets – A business is an asset.
You get to meet a wide variety of people in different industries and jobs as those of us who are 9 to 5ers are usually regulated to exposure to who we come in contact with our offices or work buildings.
We’ve read about all the folks with degrees stuck in lower waged jobs. We see how the complete disappearance of jobs and industries have collapsed cities and city areas such as Detroit when the car industry moved out.
Listen, Listen, Listen closely There are 20 million people in college at any given year, About 3 million graduate a year, and if the economy creates 145,000 jobs (in a good month) resulting in 1.7 million a year – we fall short. We really fall short when you also take into account High School graduates who don’t attend colleges.
After taking into account that the number of jobs created isn’t keeping up with the number of college grads, then we must give thought to the type of jobs being created. The low-wage service industry is leading the pack.
Okay, enough of why you may need to think long and hard about learning NEW skills. Let’s look at some areas that can’t be outsourced: Direct patient medical personal – nursing, doctor, trades – plumbing, electrician, car repair, etc. There is a long list of possibilities.
You will need income to increase your flexibility and assist you in obtaining hard assets. Buy a home, land, and other investments to increase your wealth and also serve as Tax Breaks. Tax incentives will increase under the new administration who has already proposed eliminating the capital gains tax. The Book Cash Flow Quadrant by Robert Kiyosaki explains this in detail.
It’s very easy to retreat to our quiet place and isolate ourselves when we’re busy working, taking care of home and kids. As change happens (good or bad) or even in a more complicated society in which we live, daily life circumstances can become overwhelming which can lead to anxiety and depression. Take the time to nurture relationships by having more intimate touch points – phone and in person. Don’t just rely on just texting – it’s impersonal and doesn’t foster connections. Meet folks online and then take those new friendships off- line. MEETUP, Facebook – other social networks can be of great help to find like-minded people to form a connection.
Listen and read closely – If you are still of childbearing age – Get an IUD. An IUD, the loving name for an intrauterine device, is a reliable birth control method that can last for 10 years. An IUD can save your life or at least make sure one doesn’t fall off an economic cliff by not getting pregnant during uncertain times.Look, we know the statistics about poverty and single parenthood! Many of us are living within it. We know that the new administration may cut social services and further the undermining of the safety net that began in the 1990s. Besides, you can do all of the above much more efficiently and effectually without the worry of having to take care of another child during precarious times. The reason the time is now is that with the incoming President and legislatures it is believed that access to reproductive health will be limited.
Bonus: Stay flexible with your living environment and composition. You may not be in the ideal city, county, state, or country. Get a passport and stay mobile. Also, stay open to those who may need to share resources and living accommodations.
