Email Address* Philip Falcone with his wife Lisa Marie Falcone and their Manhattan home. (Getty, Christie’s Real Estate)Embattled hedge funder Philip Falcone is in danger of losing his pricey homes on the Upper East Side and the Hamptons.The outside of Philip Falcone’s Manhattan home. (Christie’s Real Estate)The Harbinger Capital founder, whose assets were frozen last year by a Manhattan judge, owns a five-story townhouse at 22 East 67th Street that had been on the market in 2018 asking $39 million; and a 14,000-square-foot mansion at 142 Crestview Lane in Sagaponack that is on the market asking $27.9 million.Now the mezzanine lender on those properties, Melody Capital, has scheduled a UCC foreclosure auction for the equity stake in the homes, according to a notice of the sale reviewed by The Real Deal. The loan has a balance of slightly more than $74 million.Falcone told TRD he believes Melody initiated the foreclosure in order to thwart a motion he filed seeking to void the loans.A spokesperson for Melody Capital declined to comment.The auction is scheduled for April 13, according to a notice of the sale that lists Dustin Stolly, Jordan Roeschlaub and Dan Fromm at Newmark as the brokers marketing the sale. The brokers could not be reached for comment.Falcone had a net worth valued at $1 billion in 2014, according to Forbes. But he’s had his ups and downs. Falcone reportedly settled a case with the Securities and Exchange Commission in 2013 over allegations that he borrowed more than $100 million from his hedge fund to pay his personal taxes.According to the Financial Times, a New York judge froze Falcone’s assets after he failed to pay millions in legal fees to the law firm that defended him in that case.Contact Rich Bockmann Full Name* This content is for subscribers only.Subscribe Now Message*

Divisions are opening up between EU governments over the issue, with Sweden, Germany and the UK eager to wean carriers off government support and encourage them to negotiate a reduction of the $3.50-per-passenger premium currently offered by insurers.“We have to acknowledge there’s an increase in insurance costs but we do think there’s a genuine market out there,” said one EU diplomat. “We still expect the market to be able to provide insurance services to the airline industry at competitive prices.”Governments seeking to limit their own financial commitments will be wary of a transatlantic initiative that could take some of the decision-making out of their hands, even while reducing those commitments.De Palacio’s spokesman Gilles Gantelet said the Commission was not yet aware of the US carriers’ offer.But sources close to the Commissioner, who is seeking a negotiating mandate from member states to create an EU-US aviation area, suggest a joint insurance scheme could suit her agenda.“She’s very much in favour of closer relations and real competition between American and European carriers on both sides of the Atlantic,” said one official. “The details of this offer will have to be looked at seriously.” But the offer made to the Association of European Airlines (AEA), with apparent backing from Washington, could raise political sensitivities over US influence on the transatlantic aviation market.“We haven’t reached any decision yet,” said Rene Fennes, the AEA’s general manager, who added that talks were still at an informal stage.The offer came last week from Carol Hallett, head of the Air Transport Association of America (ATA), after months of talks with KLM boss Leo van Wijk, who chairs the AEA.Under both plans, airlines would make per-passenger contributions to a fund covering liabilities arising from any future terrorist attacks, with gradually declining levels of government support.But European airlines are concerned the US scheme could be incompatible with longer-term efforts to set up an international fund under the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), which stalled last week in the face of US and British-led opposition.The EU must decide soon on whether to renew government insurance guarantees to its airlines, which have only been cleared by the Commission until 31 March. Carriers on both sides of the Atlantic have begun work on separate self-administered schemes after major increases in premiums by insurance companies.But EU airlines are now being urged to drop the European scheme advocated by Transport Commissioner Loyola de Palacio and sign up to the US-led Equitime fund instead.Joining the larger American scheme would lower the cost to airlines of providing their own insurance cover – as well as reducing top-up guarantees needed from governments while the plan gets going. Future insurance arrangements for EU carriers will be discussed by member states experts today (14 March) at the ad-hoc insurance committee, in preparation for a decision by transport ministers on 26 March on whether to extend the state guarantees.

Vermont Business Magazine On the Senate Floor this afternoon, Senator Patrick Leahy addressed the Senate on the pending Republican-authored legislation to enable and facilitate repeal of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), popularly known as Obamacare. The vehicle being used by Republican leaders for this is a budget resolution, S.Con.Res.3, “To Instruct Committees To Draft Legislation To Repeal The ACA.”Floor Remarks Of Senator Patrick LeahyOn The Budget Resolution, S. Con. Res. 3 (To Instruct Committees To Draft Legislation To Repeal The ACA)Senate FloorTuesday, January 10, 2017The 115th Congress convened just last week, and instead of beginning the year with a renewed sense of cooperation, Republicans in Congress have chosen a different path. The very first thing on the agenda is to press forward with a sham budget – the only purpose of which is to set up a process to repeal the Affordable Care Act with a simple majority vote.Why? Because they know such a repeal would never pass otherwise. Instead of working to finalize appropriations bills for this year – already more than three months in – or to invest in our nation’s critical infrastructure, or to truly bolster our nation’s cybersecurity, or to improve the Affordable Care Act to ensure more people can receive affordable coverage, Republicans are recklessly rushing forward solely to fulfill an ill-considered campaign promise. They are pushing American families over the cliff with the vague ‘promise’ that eventually they will come up with a plan to replace the Affordable Care Act. Jump first, plan later is anything but a responsible formula for sound decisions, and all the more so when the health insurance of tens of millions of American families is at stake.The Majority Leader and others have said that a repeal of the Affordable Care Act is “only the first step.” They say that a full repeal is necessary to pave the way for a replacement. “Let’s leave Obamacare in the past,” they argue. When you strip away the rhetoric, the only alternative being offered to the American people by advocates of a repeal is: Don’t get sick.The American people have the right to know what a vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act really means. A repeal of this law would not just take away the rights and care of millions of patients and their families; it would eliminate insurance coverage for millions more, from the aging and elderly, to men and women with preexisting conditions, to the most vulnerable children. A repeal of the Affordable Care Act would turn back the clock to a time when, once again, women would have to pay more for health insurance than men, insurance companies could rescind a health insurance policy because someone gets sick, and coverage could forever be denied to someone born with a disease or ailment.In Vermont, the Affordable Care Act has reduced the number of Vermonters without insurance by 53 percent. Tens of thousands have gained coverage under the expansion of Medicaid. And because the Affordable Care Act closed the prescription drug “donut hole,” more than 10,000 Vermont seniors saved $12 million on drugs in 2015 alone.I have heard stories from many Vermonters about how vital this law is to them and their families. I have heard from family doctors, like one in Bennington who remembers when his patients couldn’t afford treatment because of lifetime and annual limits on health care coverage. Or a woman from Westminster whose family hit hard times and moved from job to job but could afford to keep continuous health coverage because of the plans offered through the Affordable Care Act. Other young Vermonters are able to pursue careers in public service or the arts because they can stay on their parents’ health insurance until age 26. Countless others have underscored that because of previous health issues such as diabetes or cancer, health coverage would be unaffordable without the guarantees and subsidies provided by the Affordable Care Act.Opponents of the Affordable Care Act have gone to new lengths to repeat and prolong this political battle. And that’s all this is. They have had six years to propose a better alternative but have failed to do that. Instead, Congressional Republicans and the President-elect have decided to put the cart before the horse and dismantle our health care system before figuring out how to fix it. The American people rightly expect us to work together to make progress on so many challenges that we face today. Instead, we are engaged in dangerous political gamesmanship. I will not support a return to less protection, less coverage, less fairness, and higher costs. That’s what repeal means. The Affordable Care Act extended health insurance to millions of families in Vermont and across the country. Those who represent the American people in Congress should stand ready to get to work for their constituents. I will not support an effort to reverse the many reforms and achievements we made through the Affordable Care Act, and instead cobble back together a broken system that for too long burdened most American households with health coverage uncertainty and crippling costs.Source: Leahy 1.10.2017
