Majority report being denied careAlthough many insurance companies and some politicians describe gender-affirming surgery as cosmetic, major medical organizations say it is medically necessary. For example, TRICARE, the military’s self-funded health insurance for service members, “generally doesn’t cover surgery for gender dysphoria,” according to its website. “I just remember thinking this is crazy — that Starbucks has better trans health care than military family members,” they said. Lindsey Dawson, an associate director at KFF (formerly the Kaiser Family Foundation), a nonprofit organization focused on health policy, described state laws as a “patchwork.”Twenty-four states and Washington, D.C., prohibit transgender exclusions in health insurance coverage, according to the Movement Advancement Project, a nonprofit think tank. She cited Washington, which passed legislation in May that requires all insurers in the state to cover gender-affirming care, including operations.

And Democrats are looking to pass the infrastructure bill while completing a sweeping multitrillion-dollar package of social spending and tax priorities, all on a compressed timeline. The chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., has promised that dozens of Democrats will defect and vote the infrastructure bill down if the larger spending bill hasn't passed the Senate first. Jayapal met with Pelosi for 90 minutes on Tuesday and told reporters she made clear to the Speaker that "if we don't have the reconciliation bill done, the infrastructure bill will not pass." It is unclear when it will be ready for a vote, but Schumer made clear it won't pass the Senate before Monday. House leaders will face a difficult choice about whether to hold the infrastructure vote or delay it.

Former President Donald Trump filed a $100 million lawsuit Tuesday against his niece, Mary Trump, and the New York Times, claiming they conspired to obtain his tax returns for the paper’s Pulitzer-winning story on his undisclosed finances. The lawsuit asserts that Mary Trump and three New York Times reporters — Susanne Craig, David Barstow, and Russell Buettner — were engaged in what the suit calls an “insidious plot” and an “extensive crusade” to obtain Trump’s taxes. In a statement, Mary Trump called her uncle desperate. Mary Trump appears on The Rachel Maddow Show on July 16, 2020. "As is always the case with Donald, he’ll try and change the subject.”The New York Times said in a statement it plans to challenge the lawsuit.

WASHINGTON — The House passed legislation Tuesday that would fund the government through Dec. 3 and extend the debt limit until after the 2022 elections. House Republican leaders pressured their members to oppose the bill. Pelosi said the debt limit "is about paying bills already incurred." After all, they control the White House, the House of Representatives and the Senate," he said. Democrats, however, noted that there was bipartisan support for raising the debt limit during the Trump administration.

One of the three teenagers charged in the attempted robbery and fatal stabbing of a Barnard College student at a New York City park in 2019 pleaded guilty Tuesday to second-degree murder, authorities said. The teen, Luchiano Lewis, 16, also pleaded guilty to first-degree robbery, a spokeswoman for Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. said. Tessa Majors, 18, was fatally stabbed at Morningside Park in Upper Manhattan on the night of Dec. 11, 2019. A 14-year-old boy pleaded guilty last year, NBC New York reported. When they saw Majors, the teens planned to steal her phone, Lewis said in court.

shawn latourette, new jersey commissioner of environmental protectionThe state and environmental groups are scrambling to restore the cedar species in environments that aren’t as immediately threatened by impending storm surges. Foresters and environmental groups are largely focused on restoring forests in new homes, where they won’t be hit by sea level rise. “We’re trying to put this forest type back on the landscape,” State Forester John Sacco said. There are suites of organisms that occur with this forest type that you really don’t find in other forests. A healthy cedar forest will take decades to develop, and they’re playing catch up after losing more than 80 percent of the woodlands due to logging over the last two centuries.

WASHINGTON — A long-delayed bill to provide financial support to U.S. government personnel believed to be suffering from Havana Syndrome is headed to President Joe Biden’s desk after the House passed it Tuesday. NBC News reported that diplomats affected by Havana Syndrome voiced frustration over continuing challenges in getting medical care and benefits in a tense hourlong conversation with Secretary of State Antony Blinken this month. The first incidents of the syndrome “medically confirmed” by the U.S. government were in Havana in 2016 and 2017. Many U.S. workers thought to be suffering from Havana Syndrome reported hearing a loud sound and feeling pressure in their heads. For years, those who have come forward reporting potential Havana Syndrome have complained about immense bureaucratic hurdles to getting proper medical care.

But the boys were left in the backseat of the vehicle while the man was at work, Lott said. The man made the discovery just after 5:30 p.m. after he drove to the day care center to pick up the boys. "The father was under some intense pressure at work that really had his mind somewhere else that day," Lott said at a news conference Tuesday. "And in his mind, he really believed that he had dropped the two boys off at day care. She said the boys' father made a "terrible mistake" that he will be reminded of for the rest of his life.

President Biden signaled Tuesday that his administration will address the situation at the southern border, where an estimated 15,000 Haitian migrants fleeing disaster have traveled seeking asylum. "We'll get it under control," Biden told reporters during his visit to the United Nations when he was asked about images from the border that have prompted outrage in recent days. Press Secretary Jen Psaki also told reporters on Tuesday that Biden was briefed about the emergency at the Del Rio bridge, where migrants have set up encampments. She said the president has also been briefed on what she called "horrific" footage and photos of the treatment of Haitian migrants by border patrol agents, which has prompted an internal investigation by the Department of Homeland Security. “[The president] believes that the footage, the footage and the photos, are horrific.

The beloved Central Park owl who captivated jaded New Yorkers before being killed in a truck collision had dangerous, "potentially lethal" levels rat poison in her system, authorities said Tuesday. "The bromadiolone level is potentially lethal but it is unclear if it played a direct role in the death of this owl, i.e. whether the anticoagulant affected the owl's ability to avoid collision with the vehicle," according to the report. The park uses "rodenticides that are listed as 'low to moderately low' non-target animal risk," according to parks representative Crystal Howard. "Predatory birds must hunt for their food and often, like their prey, find their food outside of park boundaries," Howard said in a statement.

WASHINGTON — Haitians deported from the U.S. on Tuesday assaulted the pilots on board one of the flights when it arrived in Port-au-Prince and injured three U.S. immigration officers, according to a source familiar with internal reports of the incident. Unrest broke out shortly after a flight carrying single adult men arrived and released the men to Haitian authorities on the airport tarmac. Then, according to the source, several of the men stormed another recently arrived flight carrying families. Three ICE officers were also attacked on that airplane, each suffering non-life-threatening injuries, the source said. As of Tuesday, just over 1,000 of the Haitian migrants had been deported to Haiti, according to two sources familiar with the operations.

Khatibzadeh spoke as Iran's new foreign minister, Hossein Amirabdollahian, was in New York for the annual U.N. General Assembly, where he was expected to discuss reviving the nuclear deal with other governments. Iran has refused to meet with U.S. negotiators in the nuclear talks; Washington and Tehran must pass messages through European intermediaries, instead. All parties must stay true to the nuclear deal," Raisi said in a recorded speech by video. The monitoring regime was introduced as part of the 2015 nuclear deal. The U.S. will discuss how to proceed with Iran in talks with European allies and other world powers in New York on Wednesday.

PHOENIX — Latinos are perpetually absent in major newsrooms, Hollywood films and other media industries where their portrayals — or lack thereof — could deeply impact how their fellow Americans view them, according to a government report released Tuesday. U.S. Rep. Joaquin Castro, D-Texas, has made the inclusion of Latinos in media a principal issue, imploring Hollywood studio directors, journalism leaders and book publishers to include their perspectives. Castro says the lack of accurate representation, especially in Hollywood, means at the very best that Americans don’t get a full understanding of Latinos and their contributions. That could engender violence against Latinos, like the killing of 23 people in El Paso in 2019 by a gunman who was targeting Hispanics. “American media, including print journalism, has relied on stereotypes of Latinos.

In his first meeting with the cohort of State Department staffers affected in Cuba and China, Blinken spent more than an hour offering reassurances and fielding questions, with most affected staffers joining remotely by phone. “It's confounding and puzzling to everyone who works on this that we have not been able to determine the cause or attribution,” the senior State Department official said. Diplomats have bristled at the fact the FBI did not directly interview the diplomats affected. On the Sept. 10 call, when Blinken asked how the department could reduce the skepticism, at least one diplomat encouraged the State Department to publicly refute that report. “The FBI study is one I have actually read,” she told the diplomats, according to notes from the call.

In Tennessee, the patients first in line for the monoclonal antibody Covid-19 treatment are likely to be the ones who landed in the emergency room because they did not get vaccinated. Extraordinary demand coupled with the federal government’s need to cap shipments of these scarce drugs has forced Tennessee health officials to recommend limiting the treatment to unvaccinated patients with the worst cases of Covid-19. Tennessee, which is following the guidance of the National Institutes of Health, appears to be the first state to recommend limiting monoclonal antibody treatment to Covid-19 patients who are unvaccinated or vaccinated but immunocompromised. And all but Florida have below average Covid-19 vaccination rates. DeSantis, in particular, has touted expensive monoclonal antibody treatments (about $2,100 a dose) but has refused to mandate the far-cheaper vaccines (between $10 and $20 a dose) or proven safety measures like wearing masks.

When confronted by her security, Brown allegedly said: "I'll f---ing kill you and her." "Upon conducting a pat down search of Mr. Brown, LAPD officers recovered a knife from Mr. Brown's front pant pocket," he said. In a court order request statement, Grande's manager detailed a timeline of Brown's "sporadic" visits since mid-February of this year. "The fact that Mr. Brown has been regularly coming to my home for over six months terrifies me. I fear that absent a restraining order, Mr. Brown will continue to come to my home and attempt to physically harm or murder me or members of my family."

Amid a crushing labor shortage, retail companies are dangling perks such as triple-digit sign-on bonuses, free college tuition and record-high wages in the scramble to staff up before the busy holiday shopping season. “Hiring intention in the upcoming quarter is higher than ever.”Between November and January, holiday retail sales are estimated to hit $1.3 trillion, an increase of around 8 percent since last year, according to Deloitte’s holiday retail forecast. It now takes 40 days to fill a retail position, a 21 percent increase from April this year, it reported. The lag in filling retail positions has retailers starting holiday hiring early this year, said Neil Saunders, a retail analyst with GlobalData. Tovinger, who said he has made a living selling clearance and discount items on eBay, plans to work the holiday season to save for a move to Wyoming with his girlfriend.

(Aside from Chinese workers, Chinese restaurant owners in Chinatown also hire many Latino and Southeast Asian immigrants.) Last month, the owners of the Sichuanese restaurant agreed to pay 22 employees $1.61 million in a hefty wage theft settlement, including nearly $600,000 in tips that the workers say were withheld from them. They’re just driven to make the most money possible.”In Boston, three local Chinese grocery stores were ordered in May to pay nearly $1 million for alleged wage theft and other labor violations. Two years earlier, the Chinatown restaurant Happy Lamb Hot Pot reached a wage theft settlement of nearly $900,000 with 14 former employees. In 2014, some 300 employees organized and won a record $4 million wage theft settlement against Yank Sing, a storied dim sum parlor that won a James Beard Award in 2009.

In addition to the felony hate crime charge, Alberto Friedmann is also charged with felony aggravated assault with a motor vehicle, according to court records from Cook County. The woman heard the man yell using a racial slur, “Move your f------ car,” court records said. But the driver continued yelling racial slurs and exited his car and approached the woman’s car, court documents state. The defendant told the woman he spat on her “because he doesn’t like Black people,” court records said. The man did strike the rear driver’s side bumper, and the driver’s-side door of the woman’s car, records said.

The House Oversight Committee will hold a hearing to examine states' efforts to restrict abortion access, Democrats on the committee said Tuesday. According to the committee, the hearing will also examine possible federal legislative action to "protect and expand abortion rights and access."

But while the homeless are eager to grab up backpacks, some are less enthusiastic about getting a vaccine. With so few homeless people fully vaccinated, Newman fears the worst. As of the end of February, the New York City Department of Homeless Services documented 113 deaths of homeless people from Covid, 101 of whom died in shelters. To incentivize them, the group offers $25 McDonald’s gift cards, and volunteers share their own stories about getting the vaccine. The city is also working on getting more homeless vaccinated.
