Biden announces steps to expand access to health care, reverse Trump abortion policies

President Biden on Thursday announced several steps intended to expand access to health care, including an executive order to temporarily reopen the Affordable Care Act’s insurance marketplace for Americans seeking coverage during the pandemic.

Biden also directed federal agencies to reexamine Trump administration policies that he said have made it more difficult to enroll in Medicaid and protect people with preexisting medical conditions. In a second order, he sought to reverse Trump policies that restricted access to abortion both in the United States and overseas.

Biden said the aim of both actions was to “undo the damage Trump has done.”

South Korean Rapper Iron found dead at the age of 29

South Korean rapper Iron, 29, whose real name is Jung Heon-cheol, was found dead at an apartment in Seoul on Monday (25 January), Seoul Jungbu Police said.

Iron was found bleeding and lying on a patch of grass by an apartment security guard around 10.25am. He was later transported to the nearest hospital where he was pronounced dead.

According to Soompi.com, Seoul Jungbu Police Station confirmed in a call, “We were called in by a [apartment] guard who told us they discovered Iron. He was urgently taken to the hospital, but he passed away.” They added, “At this point, it is unclear whether or not Iron died by suicide. We are investigating the exact cause of his death.”

Iron rose to fame after becoming a semi-finalist in the third season of music channel Mnet’s hip-hop audition program Show Me The Money in 2014.

OH-SEN: Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley Considering Run for Portman's Seat.

Senator Rob Portman’s announcement on Monday that he would not seek a third term in 2022 sent a shock wave through Ohio politics and dealt a setback to national Republicans who were counting on Mr. Portman, 65, to easily keep his seat in G.O.P. hands next year. By the afternoon, a throng of ambitious Republicans were circling the race, including the far-right Representative Jim Jordan, as well as a few prominent Democrats.

One of those Democrats was Mayor Nan Whaley of Dayton. A 45-year-old progressive who campaigned for Pete Buttigieg in the 2020 presidential primaries, Ms. Whaley has long been seen as a likely candidate for governor or Senate. In 2019, she led her city through the aftermath of a mass shooting in which nine people were killed.

Democrats in Ohio have seen the political tide turn hard against them over the past decade, and they have lost three races for governor, two out of four Senate campaigns and nearly every other statewide election, leaving Senator Sherrod Brown, 68, as a lonely Democrat holding high office there. Though Barack Obama won Ohio twice, Donald J. Trump carried it by eight percentage points in both 2016 and 2020.

In an interview with The Times on Monday evening, Ms. Whaley confirmed her interest in being a candidate in 2022 and said President Biden must move swiftly to deliver economic relief to the people in her state. The interview has been lightly edited and condensed for clarity.
