The two Democratic Party Senators who have not agreed with their 48 Democratic Party colleagues in the US Senate on Build Back Better, Voting Rights, and getting rid of the (or changing it to a speaking) filibuster are Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyisten Sinema of Arizona.
Joe Donahue, RN
01:38:04
Greg Mario and all: We need to fight for the improved and expanded Medicare for All Act of 2021, HR 1976 which would include Long Term Care and so much more.
Nadine Franklin
01:40:49
Nan what an incredible job you've done. I remember well attending your very first meeting with you, I couldn't have imagined what you would do as a founder and leader of CARA for the next 20 years. You're amazing.
Ellen Schwartz
01:42:23
@Tina Martin - you can turn off chat notifications, this way: Open the Zoom app on your desktop and click on 'Settings' (gear icon) on the extreme top-right corner of the app. On the Zoom settings screen, click on 'Chat' in the left panel. Then, look for 'Push Notifications' section in the chat settings and select the 'Nothing' option to disable all chat notification in Zoom. (You can also opt to continue to be notified of direct messages but not messages to "everyone.") And when there are unread messages, the number will show next to the Chat icon, without blocking the subtitles (unless you also turn that off). However the change doesn't take place during this meeting. It should next time, however.
Harry Bernstein
01:42:39
Carlene, yes. Unintended consequences that are long lasting
Jenni Chang
01:43:06
As we wind down this part, please feel free to put questions in the chat here. Please address it to Senator Alex Padilla so we do not miss it.
sheila goldmacher
01:43:11
DOWN WITH THE FILIBUSTER!
Cheryl McKinley
01:43:49
@sheila goldmacher: Hear, hear!! ASAP!
Carlynne M Allbee
01:44:09
What are you doing to fight to eliminate Social Security's WEP Windfall Elimination Provision and the GPO Government Pension Offset? They both are disastrous to those of us who are retired educators, especially all of us who have worked as part time or Adjunct Faculty at the Community College level. Our teaching pensions are 20% or less of a full time educator's pension, and WEP can eliminate up to 50% of what Social Security the educator earned working their way through college or side jobs. GPO says you can't collect Social Security at all as a spouse if you were an educator. Thank you
Connie Chew
01:44:41
Question to Padilla: what do you plan to do to address climate change, such as the possibility of regenerative agriculture?
Jerilyn Stapleton
01:45:11
Why hasn’t Sen Padilla or
Michelle Hayes
01:45:33
What are your thoughts on ending the filibuster! It needs to go!
Linda Perez
01:45:48
You're doing a great job, Susan Meyer! You're amazing!
Ulises Hernandez
01:45:55
Senator Padilla, my question for you is whether the largest infrastructure bill would include funding for roads and sidewalks because it's been incredibly difficult for disabled people like myself to cross some streets and all of us really need this money for pedestrian safety.
Joan Marks
01:46:09
The Senior Meal programs are constantly being terminated in LA County from WDACS. Can funding be peanent?????

Lindsey Black
01:48:36
My question is: Can we find a way to fund a "Care for America" program much like the Teach for America program so that young people learn about the social and health issues for seniors which will continue to grow in the next 10 years as 10,000 people a day turn 65!
Gabriela Mitchell

Connie Arnold
01:50:12
Seniors and persons with disabilities really need improvements to home and community based services (HCBS) who really needed the 400 billion in the Build Back Better proposal which has been reduced.What are you doing to make funding improvements to home and community based services programs nationally to insure an adequate workforce of care providers and enhance incentives in wages (living wages), benefits, and retirement incentive to value this work and make it attractive for people to enter this field of work?
Nancy Scott

01:51:16
Question for Senator Padilla: I am the son of Holocust survivors. I lost family members who were Polish Jews during World War 2. Now we have a Republican Party which has no respect for truth or basic rights like voting for all. Do you agree that the greatest threat to our democracy is voter suppression if it succeeds? What will you do to stop voter suppression? Shouldn’t there be a “carve out” from filibuster for crucial bills that support institutions that undergird our democracy like the right for every American citizen to fully exercise his or her right to vote. Voting rights for all US citizens should be protected in the US Constitution AND the California Constitution. Will you make this (protecting voting rights) a priority and do all that you can to save us from the very real threat of fascism that the US faces right now?
Michael Lyon

Jeffery Tardaguila
01:59:01
can we get medical phone numbers for Medicare insurance offers ?
C. T. Weber
01:59:04
Question for Attorney General Rob Bonta: Can you do anything about Time Share scams. People get trapped by contracts that that are endless and forced to pay for the rest of their lives on so called maintenance fees.
Connie Arnold
01:59:16
I would like to ask Attorney General Rob Bonta: What are you doing to enforce physical access to the built environment and Title 24, the California Building Code, and insure building officials are enforcing barrier removal?
Martha Gomez
01:59:33
There is a need to set-up support systems for people with disabilities in order to keep their Medicare Advantage and still obtain a part-time job. Is there any legislation addressing this need?
Greg Marro
02:00:59
Honorable Senator Padilla: Until Medicare for All or Single Payer becomes reality/law, will you consider having the Senate Health and Human Services Comte. to look at funding Long Term Care through payroll deductions as currently done for funding Social Security and Medicare, as does every working person who pays their federal and state taxes? This is sharing the high cost burden of long term care nationally instead of forcing senior parents, their adult children/caregivers to sell their homes and deplete their assets in order pay for LTC, or be forced to file for bankruptcy. Thank you. Greg Marro - 2020 CARA Convention Delegate (SEIU Local 1021 Retiree Council member)
Eva Giese
02:01:17
Statement for AG Bonta please have success in all your issues . All are more than significant!
Connie Chew
02:01:19
Question to Bonta: what is being done to push back on oil companies, and move toward cleaner energy?
Robert Coplin
02:01:28
on my tablet I click more and then I can raise my hand so I don't know if anybody else has the same thing to do raise your hand as I do

Denise Jacques
02:21:55
What can be done to create safe space for in person voting while we continue to battle COVID pandemic.? Elders are missing opportinites to work and voters are missing social engagement with mail in ballot as only safe option. What can be done to open up the process?

Raising the number of signatures required to place an initiative on the ballot would be a huge start. California has the lowest percentage of voters in the last election threshold of any state.

Shahrzad Shishegar
02:28:15
Dr Webber, what should we say to those who ask "how can they check every single signature on the ballots"? He's questioning the validity of all election

Questions for Secretary of State Weber:
Susan A Hammer
02:31:59
Dr. Weber. I am a big fan of the 4-day in person voting period. Will that continue? Seniors are a reliable voting constituency. How would you motivate young people to vote?

Dr. Weber,Your office maintains some standards re: title and arguments in the state published voter guide. However, their is no “truth in advertising” equivalencies for the paid advertisements especially on ballot measures that are presented through electronic, print and social media. How might this be addressed to prevent against misrepresentation of the effect(s) for their outcome(s).Thank you.

For Secretary of State Dr. Shirley Weber: Poor people have restriction to their running for office. Please remove the $25 a word for a statement in the Voters Information Guide. Money should not be a determination for working people to run for office. Work to abolish filing fees. Level the playing field. Increase the nomination signatures if you must but make it fair to everyone.

A single-payer, universal system would supply LT care as a matter of course. AB 1400 in CA; HR 1976 for USA.

A master plan on aging is spineless wi/out universal, single-payer health care. C’mon Newsom, you’re the one who said “no need to wait for SP!"

Language is key to changing our paradigm. “Life Time Care” must be based on a radically reorganized funded and delivery system and decentralized medical and social determinant public health care reality.

It has a huge corporate influence through the consultants similar to the Governor’s commission on a healthy california for all. Yet we show up and testify for what we want.

LTSS is a lot more than just home care. I may have missed that part of the presentation. LTSS includes things like complex care management - helping people access healthcare, transportation, in-home care, spiritual needs, nutrition, adult day health care and much more.

A living wage was estimated to be $21.24 in 2019 by the State Auditor who said 40,000 recipients were going without care each month in 2019, an the living wage varies by county, but it is much higher than $20 an hour that the union is pushing for IHSS providers (by 2023)! This disproportionately impacts lives of IHSS recipients reliant on non-relative community care providers. There is no differential pay or incremental pay grade for keeping individuals living independently in the community.

Re LTSS: be sure and study the CalPERS failure in offering LTSS. It is now the defendant a class action lawsuit for its "bait and switch" program of LTSS.

Thanks everyone for your comments, questions and insights. Yes @Debbie, I defined LTSS as all the supports and services a person needs (not just homecare). I can share the presentation with CARA to send out. Our grassroots coalition includes homecare workers (both immigrant workers in the private pay market and union workers). If people are interested in joining our monthly calls, you can directly email me lindsay@domesticemployers.org or talk with Michael Lyon, Jodi, Art Persyko and others who are active.
