ALABAMA:  The State of Alabama has been facing the issue of the Alabama prison system since as far back as 2014.  The United States Department of Justice ( DOJ ) filed lawsuits over the Alabama Prison system in December 2019.


There was a plan in 2017 to deal with the prison overcrowding. But the Alabama Legislature ignored the problem.


WHY DID THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE FILE SUIT AGAINST ALABAMA? 


The lawsuit alleges that conditions in the prison system — which the Justice Department called one of the most understaffed and violent in the country — are so poor that they violate the ban on cruel and unusual punishment and that state officials are “deliberately indifferent” to the problems.



ARTICLE ON LAWSUIT



SWITCH TO COVID FOR A MINUTE




March 13, 2019 — President Donald Trump Declares COVID-19 a National Emergency





President Donald Trump declares the novel coronavirus a national emergency, which unlocks billions of dollars in federal funding to fight the disease’s spread.





The COVID-19 pandemic was confirmed to have reached the U.S. state of Alabama in March 2020. As of February 8, 2021, the Alabama Department of Public Health (ADHP) reported 472,423 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 8,515 confirmed deaths.



March 26 — Senate Passes CARES Act



The Senate passes the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, providing $2 trillion in aid to hospitals, small businesses, and state and local governments, while including an elimination of the Medicare sequester from May 1 through December 31, 2020.





March 27, 2020 — Trump Signs CARES Act Into Law



The House of Representatives approves the CARES act, the largest economic recovery package in history, and Trump signs it into law. The bipartisan legislation provides direct payments to Americans and expansions in unemployment insurance.



August 17, 2020 — COVID-19 Now the Third-Leading Cause of Death in the US



In just 4 days, there’s been a 3.2% uptick in COVID-19–related deaths, to 170,434, giving the disease a No. 3 ranking behind heart disease in the top spot and cancer at No. 2. Deaths now exceed 1000 per day and nationwide cases exceed 5.4 million. Testing has dropped off by an average 68,000 per day, despite death being 8 times more likely in the United States vs in Europe.

AMERICAN RESCUE PLAN


CARES ACT




Distribute more than $360 billion in emergency funding for state, local, territorial, and Tribal governments to ensure that they are in a position to keep front line public workers on the job and paid



Invest about $160 billion to provide the supplies, emergency response, testing, and public health workforce to stop the spread of COVID-19, while distributing vaccines as quickly as possible and addressing racial disparities in COVID-19 outcomes. These emergency measures will help combat the heavy toll this virus is exacting, and will deliver communitybased and culturally competent care.



The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 is a $1.9 trillion coronavirus rescue package designed to facilitate the United States' recovery from the devastating economic and health effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.May 24, 2021



The COVID-19 pandemic and the corresponding economic crisis have undermined the health and economic wellbeing of American workers. Millions of Americans, many of whom are people of color, immigrants, and low-wage workers, continue to put their lives on the line every day to keep the country functioning through the pandemic. And more than 9.5 million workers have lost their jobs in the wake of COVID-19, with 4 million out of work for half a year or longer. Without additional government assistance, the economic and public health crises could drag on and our national vaccination program will be hobbled at a critical moment. The American Rescue Plan will change the course of the pandemic and deliver immediate relief for American workers. The plan will build a bridge to an equitable economic recovery and immediately reduce child poverty. In fact, a Columbia University study found that passing the plan will lift more than 5 million children out of poverty this year, cutting the poverty rate by 50%. The bill is one of the most progressive pieces of legislation in history, with more than two thirds of its tax cuts and direct payments going to families making less than $90,000 per year.

2021 COVID-19 deaths exceed 2020 numbers in Alabama with 3 months left


BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — The Alabama Department of Public Health’s COVID-19 Dashboard shows that the number of deaths in 2021 from the coronavirus in the state of Alabama exceeds the number of deaths caused by the virus recorded in the state the previous year.


The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 is a $1.9 trillion coronavirus rescue package designed to facilitate the United States' recovery from the devastating economic and health effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.May 24, 2021.

EMS WORKERS


EMERGENCY MEDICAL WORKERS


AMBULANCES


They make $ 9.00 to $ 11.00 per hour average to work on ambulances. When transporting COVID patients, it is the EMS workers locked in the back of the ambulance with the COVID patients.


Not Governor Ivey. Not members of the Alabama Legislature. Not the Chairman of the County Commissions or County Commissions. Not the Mayors. Not the Municipal Councilman.


It is the EMS worker who makes $ 9.00 to $ 11.00 a hour with wore out equipment and ambulances.


But what is Alabama Governor Kay Ivey, members of the Alabama Legislature, County Commission Chairman's, County Commissioners, Mayor's and Municipal Councilman giving to EMS?


A hard time. Sprinkling a little dust to make them happy while the money is going to their projects.


And they just took $ 400,000,000.00 of that money for the Alabama Prisons which they have known was a problem before COVID ever struck.


Over 18,000 EMS calls in Houston County last year.
