A Third of Americans delinquent on Debt : Hadley Malcolm, USA TODAY More than a third of the country is in trouble when it comes to paying debts on time; 35% of Americans have debt in collections, according to a study out Tuesday from the Urban Institute, which analyzed the credit files of 7 million Americans. That means the debt is so far past due that the account has been closed and placed in collections. This typically happens after the bill hasn't been paid for 180 days. It also means the debt has been reported to credit bureaus and can affect someone's credit score. Southern states especially stand out with the highest concentration of people delinquent. In 13 states — Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, Nevada, New Mexico and West Virginia — and Washington, D.C., more than 40% of the population with a credit file has debt in collections. Nevada, one of the states hardest hit by the housing crisis and recession, has the hig ...
Maybe if Obama could have a third term, we could have real equality. All Americans can be in debt and facing debt collectors. Study: 35 percent in US facing debt collectors By JOSH BOAK AP Economics Writer AP Photo AP Photo/Richard Drew US Video Buy AP Photo Reprints WASHINGTON (AP) -- More than 35 percent of Americans have debts and unpaid bills that have been reported to collection agencies, according to a study released Tuesday by the Urban Institute. These consumers fall behind on credit cards or hospital bills. Their mortgages, auto loans or student debt pile up, unpaid. Even past-due gym membership fees or cellphone contracts can end up with a collection agency, potentially hurting credit scores and job prospects, said Caroline Ratcliffe, a senior fellow at the Washington-based think tank. "Roughly, every third person you pass on the street is going to have debt in collections," Ratcliffe said. "It can tip employers' hiring decisions, or whether or not you get that apartment." The study found that 3 ...
From the L.A. Times: President Obama's healthcare law has reduced the number of uninsured adults by 8 million to 11 million in its first year, according to three new studies, and the vast majority report satisfaction with their new health plans. The studies — done separately by the Commonwealth Fund, the Urban Institute and the Gallup organization — use different methods to estimate the effect that the Affordable Care Act has had. Each comes to a similar conclusion: Nationwide, roughly 1 in 4 people who were uninsured last fall now have received coverage, representing a significant first step toward Obamacare's goal of near-universal coverage.

FHA Program Aims to Expand Credit; Lower Risk Posted By Colin Robins On May 13, 2014 @ 2:41 pm In Daily Dose,Government,Headlines,News | No Comments The Federal Housing Administration [1] (FHA) issued its "Blueprint for Access [2]," which aims to expand credit access for underserved borrowers by utilizing housing counseling as a means to reduce the possibility of loans becoming seriously delinquent. The announcement highlights a new pilot program, Homeowners Armed with Knowledge (HAWK), which incorporates housing counseling into the home buying process for borrowers using FHA-insured financing. The agency cited a study from the Urban Institute [3] that notes that the average loan from Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae has a borrower's credit score of 752, leaving 13 million borrowers with credit scores between 580-680 at a significant disadvantage when attempting to secure loans. Under the new pilot, homebuyers will qualify for savings on their FHA-insured loans by completing housing counseling through independe ...
(WALL STREET JOURNAL) - "Obamacare Question: Ditch Employer Mandate? " A left-leaning think tank whose research is often taken seriously by backers of the health-care overhaul has published a paper suggesting the administration should scrap the health law’s requirement that employers offer coverage or pay a penalty. “Why Don’t We Just Get Rid of the Employer Mandate?”, by three researchers at the Urban Institute, argues that the requirement won’t lead to many more people gaining coverage, since most firms that don’t currently offer benefits to all their workers will opt for the penalty, and most firms that already voluntarily offer benefits will want to carry on doing so.

Read this interesting article: The New York Times "Deporting Parents Hurts Kids" By HIROKAZU YOSHIKAWA and CAROLA SUÁREZ-OROZCO April 20, 2012 LAST May, President Obama told an audience in El Paso that deportation of immigrants would focus on “violent offenders and people convicted of crimes; not families, not folks who are just looking to scrape together an income.” Two weeks ago, however, the Department of Homeland Security released a report that flatly belies the new policy. From January to June 2011, Immigration and Customs Enforcement removed 46,486 undocumented parents who claimed to have at least one child who is an American citizen. In contrast, in the entire decade between 1998 and 2007, about 100,000 such parents were removed. The extraordinary acceleration in the dismantling of these families, part of the government’s efforts to meet an annual quota of about 400,000 deportations, has had devastating results. Research by the Urban Institute and others reveals the deep and irreversible har ...
New research from Urban Institute: Most pimps women; Prostitution in decline in US.
*Here is the Million Dollar Question, Seeing that the Justice Department funded researchers on the exhaustive study in eight large U.S. metropolitan areas on the commercial sex economy/prostitution economy which deals with pimps and the research found the reach of the internet has facilitated the sex trade and made it harder to combat me commercial sex/prostitution business. Now people be mindful, this study comes from the justice department funding to the Urban Institute. Our question from JBH.Org is; What if a Bill was drafted to introduce to states regarding "Licensed Prostitution" and some provisions of the bill would include; State Registry; State Tax; Monthly Testing; and Monthly Renewal Of Registration. This way, It's regulated,controlled,and clean...how y'all feel about such a Bill?

Single Payer . "Yes, we still need a Medicare for all option for health care in this country. A Los Angeles Times story spells out what happens when you have competing market interests intersecting, both hoping to maximize profits. In this case, hospitals and insurance companies. The difference in price can be stunning. Los Alamitos Medical Center, for instance, lists a CT scan of the abdomen on a state website for $4,423. Blue Shield says its negotiated rate at the hospital is about $2,400. When The Times called for a cash price, the hospital said it was $250. "It frustrates people because there's no correlation between what things cost and what is charged," said Paul Keckley, executive director of the Deloitte Center for Health Solutions,a research arm of the accounting firm. "It changes the game when healthcare's secrets aren't so secret."[...] In the view of Robert Berenson, a senior fellow at the Urban Institute and vice chairman of the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission, big hospitals are exerting ...

MASSIVE IRS RED FLAG: All non-profits must file an IRS form 990-N. To do this, the IRS sends you to the website of the Urban Institute, which purports to be a "nonpartisan policy research" organization, but clearly backs the liberal agenda. This is a dangerous conflict of interest and the reason why non-liberal nonprofits are being harassed by the IRS.
Good Morning! Happy Hump Day. No texting. No guns. Two "rules" posted in the Florida movie theater where a man drew a gun and allegedly killed a man for texting. Seems Americans are killing at a record pace over...nothing. Maybe this is how we settle our arguments now. Pull a gun. End the argument. We'll be talking a lot about this story. Some psychologists say there's something about being "trapped" in a movie theater and anger over cell phone use that ignites the worst in us. It's kinda like road rage. Yeah, I know...excuses, excuses. Perhaps it's a better defense than 'he attacked me with popcorn...or something...' The Senate is in a "cooling off period." A self-imposed "time-out." No, they're not sitting in a corner! They "went to their separate corners of the Capital" so they can ponder why they can't seem to extend unemployment benefits. In the meantime, according to the Urban Institute, 2.3 million children live with a long-term unemployed parent. Most live in states where the housing and financial ...
Why Obamacare - i.e. a private market-based insurance system - is unsuited to its target demographic and we should have simply expanded Medicare. -- From Bloomberg Businessweek Many of the people who are supposed to get health coverage through the Affordable Care Act next year don’t understand basic elements of insurance such as deductibles, premiums, and co-insurance, a new poll from the Urban Institute suggests. That means the newly insured may be blindsided by how much they actually have to pay for a doctor’s visit or trip to the hospital. The survey asked more than 1,000 people who were either uninsured or had private health plans about how well they grasped nine terms that describe different attributes of health plans, including “co-payments,” “provider network,” and “covered services.” Researchers found that only 40 percent were “very or somewhat confident” that they knew what all the phrases meant. Who could blame them? Health insurance is full of jargon. The language can be opa ...
Myth No. 2: I'd be better off if I'd kept my Social Security taxes in my own investment account. Hmmm ­ ­ — you're saying that you'd faithfully put that money aside, every year of your working life, in a mix of stocks and bonds, without ever skipping a year, drawing on your nest egg or selling when the market dropped? Few such paragons exist. You'd need to invest far more than you probably realize to match the benefits Social Security pays. As an example, take a 65-year-old couple with a single breadwinner who earned the average wage. At retirement, they'd currently get about $2,170 a month, plus inflation adjustments, for life, the Urban Institute reports. To equal that sum in private savings, they'd need to have about $580,000, says Michael Kitces, director of research for Pinnacle Advisory Group, and the money might last only 30 years. How many average earners are likely to save that much?
