Commercial Fishery Failure Issued For Panhandle 8-12-13 11pm

— Associated Press Release

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Federal officials are declaring a fishery disaster for Florida’s oyster industry in the Gulf of Mexico.

The declaration by the U.S. Secretary of Commerce sets the stage for possible help from the federal government if Congress approves it. That aid could include economic assistance to fishing businesses and communities, including oyster fishermen.

The announcement comes a day before both U.S. Sens. Marco Rubio and Bill Nelson are scheduled to be in Apalachicola for a field hearing by the Senate Commerce Committee. The committee will take testimony about the impact of water flows in Apalachicola Bay.

The collapse of the oyster industry last year followed a drought that reduced freshwater into the bay. But state officials have also blamed the lack of freshwater flow due to increased consumption in Georgia.

— Press Release: NOAA

U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker today declared a commercial fishery failure for the oyster fishery along the west coast of Florida. The fishery resource disaster resulted from excessive drought conditions in Apalachicola Bay and elsewhere in the Florida panhandle during the 2012 – 2013 winter fishing season.

“We understand the economic significance this historic oyster fishery has for fishermen and related businesses in the panhandle of Florida,” said Secretary Pritzker. “Because the drought caused such a decline in oyster landings and a rather significant drop in revenue, the fishery qualified as a resource disaster under the nation’s fishing law.”

Under the Interjurisdictional Fisheries Act and the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, the Commerce Secretary can declare a fishery disaster which makes it possible for Congress to appropriate funds to provide economic assistance to fishing businesses and communities, including oyster fishermen, affected by the disaster and to support other activities addressing the disaster.

If Congress appropriates funds to address the Florida oyster fishery failure, the Commerce Department’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) will work closely with members of Congress and the state of Florida to develop a spending plan and distribute the funds to help coastal communities and the fishing industry, should funds be appropriated.

Within the last year, landings on the Florida west coast oyster fishery have declined nearly 60 percent, with a 44 percent reduction in revenues. This decline in revenues is an unusual occurrence in this fishery and is not part of a cyclical downturn in revenues. The state of Florida projects that with the continued decline in landings, revenue losses are only expected to increase and remain lower than the historical average until the oyster population begins to rebound.

“It takes three years for oysters to reach marketable size, so we are concerned about this depleted oyster resource that has traditionally supported a viable fishery,” said Sam Rauch, acting assistant NOAA administrator for NOAA Fisheries. “We will continue to work with Congress, the state and oyster fishermen through this challenging time.”

— Press Release: Office of Governor Rick Scott

TALLAHASSEE – Today, Governor Rick Scott announced that the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has approved the Governor’s September 2012 request for a commercial fisheries failure declaration for the ongoing fisheries disaster in Apalachicola Bay.

Governor Scott said, “The federal government did the right thing in approving this commercial fisheries failure declaration. Now we need the support of Congress to provide the dollars necessary to support this region’s recovery. Congress should move with a sense of urgency to provide much needed support for families in the region, so they can get back on their feet and continue providing our nation with the world’s best oysters.”

Franklin County, FL- Around coastal communities near the Apalachicola Bay, oyster shells are sprinkled along the shore.

Oystermen rely on the catch of the day to feed their families. They have been doing it for generations.

"Not much out here right now, I don’t know what needs to be done, but something needs to be done," said an oystermen, while out in the bay. " The marine patrol is around us, hard timing us, it’s just a hard time right now."

"If we are here we are harassing them, If we are not here we are not doing enough about enforcement, so it puts law enforcement, the FWC, in a lose, lose situation," said Captain Rob Beaton from The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission.

FWC set out for a two-day patrol to make sure harvesters are following regulations.

"Some harvesters are facing some tough economic times and they are saying they are being forced because of the financial situation," said Beaton.

Captain Beaton says some harvesters are not shading the oysters, which causes them to grow bacteria. He has seen many cases where the oysters were too small to be snatched from the waters. The requirement is three inches minimum.

Captain Beaton says his team is trying to preserve the waters for the future

"We want to ensure that there is consumer confidence on oysters coming from this bay and that people look at this area as a top place to get oysters," said Beaton.

CBS News Copy

CBS News has learned more than two million Americans have been told they cannot renew their current insurance policies — more than triple the number of people said to be buying insurance under the new Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare.
.

There have been estimates about hundreds of thousands of people losing coverage, CBS News’ Jan Crawford reported on "CBS This Morning." CBS News has reached out to insurance companies across the country to determine some of the real numbers — and this is just the tip of the iceberg, Crawford said. The people who are opening the letters are shocked to learn they can’t keep their insurance policies despite President Obama’s assurances to the contrary.

The White House is on the defensive trying to explain it, after Mr. Obama repeatedly said, "If you like your doctor or health care plan, you can keep it."

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said, "What the president said and what everybody said all along is that there are going to be changes brought about by the Affordable Care Act to create minimum standards of coverage."

It’s an unexpected reality of Obamacare being told through anecdotes in local papers and on social media. But the hard numbers reveal the evidence is far more than anecdotal. CBS News has confirmed with insurance companies across the country that more than two million people are getting notices they no longer can keep their existing plans. In California, there are 279,000; in Michigan, 140,000; Florida, 300,000; and in New Jersey, 800,000. And those numbers are certain to go even higher. Some companies who tell CBS News they’ve sent letters won’t say how many.

Industry experts like Larry Levitt, of the Kaiser Family Foundation, say the insurance companies have no choice. "What we’re seeing now is reality coming into play," he said.

Obamacare forces them to drop many of their plans that don’t meet the law’s 10 minimum standards, including maternity care, emergency visits, mental health treatment and even pediatric dental care.

That means consumers have to sign on to new plans even if they don’t want or need the more generous coverage. Industry experts say about half the people getting the letters will pay more — and half will pay less, thanks to taxpayer subsidies. Levitt said, "The winners outnumber the losers here, but because of all the website problems, it’s hard to find out who the winners are because they don’t even know it themselves."

And for the people who’ve gotten the letters, the broken website is a real problem, Crawford added on "CTM." They don’t know what to do. They don’t know if they get subsidies. And then there are others getting the letters who have very good insurance but are being told they can’t keep it. Industry experts CBS News talked to say for everyone, the best bet is to just call their insurance companies to get the information.

Many of us who didn’t vote for abomination are just sadly nodding right now. It’s exactly what we expected. That is; a much, much, worst economy, and lies and more lies, from him, and his many puppet lieutenants. It’s really sad to me just how God Smacked many were with this man, eating up his lies like it was candy, fooled, and sucked in, to his many promises of, "We need change, and we are gonna change!", B.S talk. His high ranking followers were/are the likes of: Sean Penn, Puff Daddy, Kayne, Rap artists, Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan, Madonna, Al Sharpton, Bill Clinton, etc, etc. All people who DO NOT value good morals, integrity, truth, honesty, and God.

My main issue with A.C.A is the fact that people are going to be fined if they do not carry minimum health insurance. Those that can’t afford the health insurance will be allowed to ride on the tax payers to cover their costs i.e. Medicaid. So this tells me that all people on Welfare will now get a free ride on Medicaid costing the tax payers even more. Like a freaking vacuum just sucking the low income people into the system.

"Starting January 1, 2014, if someone doesn’t have a health plan that qualifies as minimum essential coverage, he or she may have to pay a fee that increases every year: from 1% of income (or per adult, whichever is higher) in 2014 to 2.5% of income (or 5 per adult) in 2016. The fee for children is half the adult amount. The fee is paid on the 2014 federal income tax form, which is completed in 2015. People with very low incomes and others may be eligible for waivers. See "What if someone doesn’t have health coverage in insurance in 2014?" for more information."

Hold your horses a bit. Obama will sign an Executive Order in Feb 2014 (after the companies establish their new rates on 1Jan2014); his order will declare that the greedy company’s exorbitant rates now require Washington to save Americans by nationalizing ACA and making it single payer like SS and Medicare; the Treasury will deduct premiums from everyone’s pay. This will work so well that in Mar2014, Washington will nationalize all remaining private enterprise and begin deducting student loans, credit cards, mortgages, car payments, utilities and child support (unions, politicians, banksters and welfare recipients will be exempted). He will rename the Statue of Liberty as the Statue of Equality and after having solved all of liberal America’s problems, Obama will take a much needed 6 month vacation at his "official" birthplace while the low IQ voters prepare his coronation ceremony.

Obama administration knew millions could not keep their health insurance

President Obama repeatedly assured Americans that after the Affordable Care Act became law, people who liked their health insurance would be able to keep it. But millions of Americans are getting or are about to get cancellation letters for their health insurance under Obamacare, say experts, and the Obama administration has known that for at least three years.

Four sources deeply involved in the Affordable Care Act tell NBC News that 50 to 75 percent of the 14 million consumers who buy their insurance individually can expect to receive a “cancellation” letter or the equivalent over the next year because their existing policies don’t meet the standards mandated by the new health care law. One expert predicts that number could reach as high as 80 percent. And all say that many of those forced to buy pricier new policies will experience “sticker shock.”

"You can keep your existing coverage" and "You can keep your doctor" ranks right up there with "The check is in the mail" and "Of course I’ll respect you in the morning".
