America's biggest credit-reporting firms announced they will strip tens of billions of dollars in medical debt from consumers’ credit reports starting this summer - an attempt at relief for the reported 23 million Americans whose credit has been marred by overdue medical costs, hampering their ability to buy homes and take loans.Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion - the world's three largest consumer credit reporting agencies - all announced Friday that they would collectively wipe 70 percent of a reported $195 billion deficit from their collection accounts, an amount that's likely surged since the start of the pandemic.The change specifically targets already paid debts still stuck in collections,

From the article: "New Mexico mom Adriann Barboa, currently the chair of the state's Bernalillo County Board of Commissioners, for instance, saw her credit score plummet in 2014 after incurring a $15,000 bill when her then 14-year-old daughter, Amarisa, underwent surgery for appendicitis." What happened to going on a payment plan? She may not be able to afford the $15,000 debt but many of us can't either and we set up monthly payment plans. Did Adriann Barboa think spending the night in the hospital was going to be free?

This is no different than the college loans idiocy. What about those of us who have managed to pay our own medical bills all these years? I don’t have dental insurance but this last week had to have root canals in two teeth. And I paid for them out of my own pocket. Anyone remember what happened in 2008 when all of those mortgages were being given to people who couldn’t pay the monthly bill? So now we’re going to give car and home loans to people who can’t pay their medical bills? Does DC ever learn from their fiascos?

Explain this to me. I am a private company and you owe me money. The Government takes that debt off of your credit rating, but they don't pay that debt for you. Don't you still owe it to me? Can't I still make attempts to collect. What right does Government have to erase the debt that people owe me.

This along with the patient doctor hospital distrust sowed during Covid is an attempt to crash the healthcare system and create the government run single payer system. Once that is complete, the communists will have achieved almost all their goals with the exception of GUN confiscation. Anybody have any ideas on how to stop this tyranny?

The majority of personal debt in America is from medical bills. What's wrong with deleting this debt from a person's credit record after its paid off? Doctors, clinics and hospitals have gone overboard in their cost of medical care. I just had an injection of "monovisc" into a bum cost $2,000! Whisky Tango Foxtrot! F 'em!

This is part of a concerted effort to boost the credit scores of irresponsible people beyond what they deserve. Failing to consider unpaid medical bills in credit scores masks the total indebtedness of people. The debt doesn't go away, but someone relying on the credit report sees a person who appears more credit-worthy than they really are and may grant them credit, or let them move into a rental. When they fail to pay their bills or rent because they're overextended, the responsible among us will be left holding the bag.

Why don't they do something about the excessive fees of LAWYERS? Imagine if Rudy Giuliani, Sydney Powell, or Gen. Flynn were to get their legal fees expunged from their credit history? Every Federal smackdown of any segment of the economy should always include a smackdown on the legal profession, and the only reason I say that is because the Federal Congress-Judicial System-Legal System are connected at the hip and can ruin lives of citizens with the stroke of a pen and the $400 per manhour lawyer rate. Bottom line: If the Feds are gonna screw over bankers, medical doctors, or education lenders, then they MUST screw the legal profession by the same measure.

#14 is correct. The debtor still owes the money and is responsible for re-payment. What it will do is make it harder for a lender to assess the credit worthiness of someone applying for a loan. This will probably result in a tightening of credit rather than a loosening and hurt the people it’s trying to help.

There is a difference in forgiveness of debt, and removing evidence of a debt from the view of future creditors. The medical debt is still owed, but your future landlord has no idea how hard it will be for you to pay your rent.

This sounds like a scheme by the Democrats to boost the economy before the election. The debt is not erased, it is just not reported in credit checks. This means more credit will be extended to high risk borrowers who will later default. This is how a previous housing bubble was created and busted. Even though the Democrats probably plan to steal the next election by fraud, they need to build some metrics in the media that make it seem plausible that they could win. That is why you see stories that show more support for their candidates than you believe is possible.

Why would anyone buy a credit report from these 3 companies, as they do not accurately reflect a person's credit history. You can erase the computer, but you cannot change human nature. Credit reports are now worthless.

Realize that hospitals billings departments are out there! They can't be bargained with. They can't be reasoned with. They don’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And they absolutely will not stop... ever, until you are turned over to collections. Tried to dispute a medical over billing for a year until they terminated conversations and sent me to a collections agency. I paid, because I was changing jobs and didn’t want the ‘ding’ on my credit to be a reason not to get hired.

Obamacare, now Bidencare, takes care of so little of medical expenses that millions of working Americans are saddled with massive debt to hospitals for what would be considered routine care. These programs have large deductibles, which make the insurance plans virtually useless. At least when inability to pay used to trigger the Hill-Burton proviso which had the Government pick up the tab for the indigent, and financelly strapped working families, having a child with a broken limb didn't automatically trigger bankruptcy.

So, the goal here is the irresponsible/immature or both incur huge medical bills... and it is non-reportable on their credit score and thus there are no negative consequences for not paying their bills so the responsible suckers with expensive good health insurance or who pay out the ying yang are on the hook once again. I am all for getting a handle on the outrageous cost of medical treatment BUT this is not the way to do it. Going to a free market, cash pay, customer driven system with universal catastrophic insurance coverage only and tax incentives for personal medical saving accounts is however. I have been preaching this forever!

One step closer to government run healthcare. People won't pay their medical bills if there are no consequences. We are told healthcare is a necessity, but the prices make it a luxury. Which is it? People cut back on luxuries. Don't get sick, but if you do, die quickly. We are heading in that direction. Dying from appendicitis is absurd, but so is the medical bill.

That's exactly what Obama did in 2008 except that he forced the banks to ignore bad credit actions instead of removing them, thus allowing thousands of people to buy homes who would otherwise not be qualified. That worked out superbly.

Great point, #12. The legal profession is in dire need of reform but it's difficult because, by definition, they control the law. There are too many lawyers but they are not all good ones. The junior lawyers in every firm are under tremendous pressure to make as many hours billable as possible because they pay the salaries of the senior partners. That encourages inflation of hours. That's why the ridiculous hourly fees for what is nothing more than historical research that anybody could do. But they have as much chance of reforming their profession as Congress does.

So ... I'm a bank or credit agency and I lend you money to buy a car or a house based on your recently attained decent credit score. But ... unbeknownst to me ... you're really in hock up to your eyeballs from the facelift & tummy-tuck you got for $100,000 and for which you now refuse to pay. This unpaid "medical debt" is not noted on your credit score. However, the doctor/hospital finally wins a judgement against you and you now must pay him/it in full ... and so you decide not pay another bill! H-m-m ... I wonder what bill you won't pay next??

#35.. point of clarification. Having had CASH PAY plastic surgery for reconstruction after weight loss let me tell you, that surgeon and my hospital stay was a REQUIRED upfront pay, no payment plan, no half now, half later, no credit. The check had cleared before I went into the OR. I was still billed for small incidentals post op but the 99% of the bill was clear as glass before I signed anything, no surprise bills and I could shop around for both quality and price. Elective medicine that is cash pay is the way to go if you actually want to make money as a doctor.

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse, it does. The Biden administration is working on a plan that would make the world a far more dangerous place.

There is no good reason, only the fetish to undo everything Donald Trump did. He wisely scuttled the first bad deal, so President Biden is hellbent on making a new one, and is close to the finish line, meaning Iran could escape sanctions and its oil

The Biden Administration and the Biden Justice Department continue to ignore actual and perceived conflicts of interest with the Biden family. There are no efforts to address any of this. This coverup is a crime by the DOJ. In most all professions there are rules governing conflicts of interest. If an auditor, for example, is hired for an engagement, he or she cannot have any real or perceived conflicts of interest. If there are any, the auditor must recuse himself or herself from the engagement.

Katrina Robinson, 41, struck the plea deal Friday which saw her admit just two of the 20 counts she was facing, with a value of $3,400. Sentencing guidelines could have seen the former Tennessee lawmaker face up to 10 months in prison for those counts. But US District Judge Sheryl H Lipman decided to let Robinson off with a slap on the wrist, and sentenced her to just a year of probation after claiming that the swindler had suffered enough already.

In October 2020, prior to the election, Hunter Biden’s laptop was left unclaimed at a repair shop and turned over to the FBI. Yaacov Aplebaum has covered at length the Biden family corruption, their crooked international dealings, pornographic images of Hunter and others, evidence of Hunter’s drug use and the coverup of his and the Biden family’s corruption which he found on the laptop and elsewhere on the internet. (Warning, images in these reports are not for the faint-hearted.) The New York Post, without all these sordid details and photographs, reported the story in that same month before the election. But in the face of widespread denial the story got

Walt Disney World has reportedly denounced a routine by a high school drill team that was accused of “racism” and borrowing from Native American stereotypes during a recent performance there. Video shot March 15 of the Port Neches-Groves High School Indianettes from Texas shows the all-women squad dressed in purple with white fringe as they march and dance—seemingly borrowing from Native culture—while also chanting, “Scalp ’em, Indians, scalp ’em.” The footage of the group, who were invited to perform in Orlando, sparked a backlash by Native American officials who called their act “dehumanizing.” “The live performance in our park did not reflect our core values,

A same-sex kiss has been restored to the final cut of Pixar’s upcoming animated film Lightyear after LGBTQIA2S+ employees and their allies complained that Disney executives had censored “overtly gay affection” in the company’s films, according to a report by Variety. A source close to the production told Variety that Lightyear features a female lead who is in a relationship with another woman, and a kiss between the two characters had been cut from the film. The gay kiss was added back into the movie last week, following the outrage from a woke mob at Pixar Animation Studios.(Snip)Earlier this month, DeSantis debunked leftist falsehoods on the bill,

“He affects unselfishness, but is in reality fanatically, even maniacally, self-centered.... He is childlike in his pursuit of pleasure, but shrewd and willful in his studied neglect of responsibility. His sensibilities are exquisitely tender, and yet he has a talent for causing pain...He professes universal tolerance and sweetness to all, though is willing to put his friends through shame, fear, and harm rather than see his own comfort threatened.” No, this quote does not refer to Alec Baldwin, apt though it may seem. It is drawn from an essay about Harold Skimpole, a character in Charles Dickens’ Bleak House.

A growing number of Republicans around the country are demanding a new investigation into Hunter Biden after the New York Times confirmed the authenticity of a laptop whose contents were published by The Post 17 months ago.Though The Post exclusively revealed in September 2020 the existence of Hunter Biden’s laptop and the potentially compromising material contained there, the story was censored by social media companies at the behest of the Democratic Party. Mainstream media outlets — including The Times — attacked or ignored The Post revelations, while the Biden administration falsely suggested it was part of a Russian disinformation campaign.

To some users, it feels like another Big Tech bait and switch. To others, it’s a case of getting half a loaf. But to many, it’s a betrayal of a principled promise. The search engine DuckDuckGo will now begin making judgments about the accuracy of the information produced by its search algorithms. As Breitbart reports in “Diet Google: DuckDuckGo Will ‘Down-Rank’ What It Decides Is ‘Disinformation,’”, the company’s CEO and founder, Gabriel Weinberg, posted a Twitter thread announcing that, as part of standing with Ukraine, the search engine had been rolling out search updates that down-rank sites associated with Russian disinformation.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — California's urban water users and farmers who rely on supplies from state reservoirs will get less than planned this year as fears of a third consecutive dry year become reality, state officials announced Friday. Water agencies that serve 27 million people and 750,000 acres (303,514 hectares) of farmland, will get just 5% of what they've requested this year from state supplies beyond what's needed for critical activities such as drinking and bathing. That's down from the 15% allocation state officials had announced in January, after a wet December fueled hopes of a lessening drought. But a wet winter
