Last night, Senators Mike Lee (R-UT) and Jerry Moran (R-KS) announced they wouldn't support the Senate's latest effort to replace Obamacare, the Better Care Reconciliation Act. But if you live in New York or New Jersey, don't worry: The long hot summer of healthcare reform is just getting started. Here's what to pay attention to next:- Watch Chuck Schumer. Will Democrats be able to reach across the aisle and agree on a bipartisan way forward?
The Senate released their version of a plan to repeal and replace Obamacare this past month. The plan would make deep cuts to Medicaid, the federal program that provides health coverage to millions of Americans, including low-income adults, elderly adults, children, pregnant women and people with disabilities.
Medicaid is the second-largest item on New York's budget, and advocates are worried about cuts. (Michael Jung / Shutterstock)Half of all births. The vast majority of nursing home care. Even some school health centers. All of these services have one thing in common: Medicaid provides for them. WNYC wanted to figure out how people in New York and New Jersey might be impacted by Medicaid cuts being proposed in Washington. So we dug into the data to produce this shareable, tweetable, embeddable graphic.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
