Patient’s Merely “product” to be Manipulated by Law to Produce Profits for all of the Special Interests.

 

large group we wont take it any more

Eblen Carol · Commented on the Center for the Public Integrity

Unfortunately, the elderly/disabled on Medicare/Medicaid have no idea that their social safety net is managed to provide profit for all of the special interests involved —and we, the patients, are on the bottom of the pile and merely “product” to be manipulated by law to produce profits for all of the special interests.

Unless some of the responsible reporters in Big Media and Big Newspapers tell the American people what is going on, we aren’t going to have this discussion about the constitutionality of unilaterally hastening the dealth of the elderly/disabled on Medicare/Medicaid for the fiscal expediency of the special interests, are we?

When both political parties are complicit, the Executive becomes complicit, and nobody wants to rock the boat If we stopped the unsuccessful spending of our Tax dollars. would the under-the-radar involuntary euthanasia of American elderly/disabled citizens on Medicare/Medicaid be necessary?

The Forgotten Ones

Because The Congress never clarified the provisions of the 1991 Patient Self Determination Act and the States interpreted it in many different ways, the old folks were left hanging out there on a limb.
Within the past few years, several states have passed legislation to prevent unilateral DNR policies but we see Massachusetts General has had a unilateral DNR Code Policy since 2006 that has, of course, never been tested in the courts. Apparently the concept of “managed medical care” and “managed death” for profit is the new vision of the for-profit sector of our health care industry

DNR “Do Not Resuscitate”, Advance Directives, Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment & End-Of-Life Decision-Making Process, Clin 08.01 Effective Date: March 05, 2009

on of the for-profit sector of our health care industry.

If unilateral DNRs are legal under our Medicare Contract, and this is a contract we can’t refuse, shouldn’t we, the patients be informed when life-saving and life-extending treatments will not be paid for by Medicare and their partner, Big Insurance so that we can pay privately to live as long as is medically possible if this is our desire?

The shame is that there are NO Whistle Blowers who will blow the whistle for the people. We need to get Big Insurance out of our social safety net —-but how?

Threats, deals got drug companies on board with Obama

By Paige Winfield Cunningham – The Washington Times – Thursday, May 31, 2012

Top administration officials cut backroom deals with the nation’s top drug companies to win support for President Obama’s health care overhaul, threatening them with steeper taxes if they resisted and promising a better financialHYPERLINK \l “” deal for the industry if they acquiesced, according to internal documents released by The House.In some of the key deals, Mr. Obama agreed to drop his long-standing support for letting Americans buy cheaper foreign prescription drugs — something the pharmaceutical industry vehemently opposed — and the drugmakers promised to mount a public campaign to sell the public on the healthHYPERLINK \l “” care legislation.

The material released by House members provides a rare insider look at the wheeling and dealing on Capitol Hill as Mr. Obama tried to shepherd his bill through Congress, in the face of near-unanimous GOP opposition.

The details emerged as House Republicans released emailsHYPERLINK \l “” it obtained during a yearlong investigation into the closed-door negotiations between the White House and lobbyists for drug companies. House Republicans said those negotiations violated the promises of transparency Mr. Obama made during his 2008 campaign.

“We really have now been able to build a case that there was a sequential, planned, organized strategyHYPERLINK \l “” for the White House to trade policy for politics, if you will,” said Rep. Michael C. Burgess, Texas Republican. “They were willing to give up on things they thought were sound principles.”

The documents show that former White House Chief of Staff Jim Messina and health care reform point woman Nancy-Ann DeParle told drug company representatives in June 2009 that if they didn’t cooperate on the initiative, Mr. Obama would demand a 15 percent rebate on Medicare drugs and push to remove the tax deduction for direct consumer advertising — items that could cost the industry $100 billion over the next decade.

The threats appeared to work, and the parties met the next month to hammer out a final deal. The drug companiesHYPERLINK \l “” agreed to pay higher Medicaid rebates and a new health care reform fee to raise $80 billion for the legislation, and promised to run positive television ads about it.

In exchange, the White House gave them direct input into the new policies and promised to let them continue to set their own drug prices.

Ms. DeParle threw in an extra prize HYPERLINK \l “” to reward pharmaceutical companies for their cooperation, saying she and other officials decided to reverse the administration’s position on drug importation, which Mr. Obama supported while running for president.

“I made the decision, based on how constructive you guys have been, to oppose importation on this bill,” she wrote to Bryant Hall, chief lobbyist for the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA).

 

 

 

 

Obama and Democrats in Congress, actually want food prices to rise

obama-immeltWhat is happening today, however, is unique: this is the first time in American history when an administration is deliberately forcing food prices higher in order to increase dependency and extend government control over the economy.

There is hardship ahead even for those not dependent on government aid. Despite our nation’s vast agricultural resources, Americans are not immune to the kinds of food shortages that have existed throughout human history and that continue to exist in developing countries today. It takes only a short time for a nation to slip from abundance into impoverishment.

A century ago Romania, with its productive agricultural sector, was among the richest countries in Europe. The abundant harvests that had once fed Romania’s people were commandeered by the government and shipped abroad to bankroll the extravagant lifestyle of the rulers and to fund the state security apparatus necessary to defend it. This and fundamental mismanagement resulted in decades of hunger for the Romanian people.

For America the combination of corn ethanol mandates and a weak-dollar policy is, in effect, a “Romania-style” seizure of the nation’s food supply. The left is intent on gaining control of America’s natural resources — its agricultural and energy sectors, in particular — and for exactly the same reason they were seized in communist states such as Romania. The control of food and energy is the means by which the left hopes to gain permanent power over the American people.

America is approaching a future in which food will be expensive and in short supply. The combination of an ever expanding corn ethanol program and the demands of a tighter global market will make food less affordable and less available.

27421988-sad-children-hugging-his-motherWhat may not be so obvious is that the American left, led by Obama and Democrats in Congress, actually want food prices to rise, just as they want energy prices to rise, (see update on oil below)so as to create further dependency. If they did not, they would take simple measures to lower prices: eliminate ethanol mandates, eliminate protective tariffs, strengthen the dollar, and allow the free market to govern prices. But none of this will happen with the left in charge because high prices and shortages serve the interest of a party intent on centralized control of the economy.

This disaster can only be averted by the defeat of Obama and of the Democrat-controlled Senate , and by the removal of leftists from government agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency, Health and Human Services, and the Department of Agriculture. Above all, the nation must return to a free-market economy in which prices for food and all else are determined by supply and demand, not by the ambitions of leftists in Washington.

Food prices have been steadily rising under Obama. The price of a pound of potatoes has gone up by a third, the price of a gallon of milk has increased by a fifth and the price of a 5lb bag of flour has gone up by a dollar.

Bacon was at $3.60 a lb under Bush. It’s now up to $5.60 a lb under Obama. The price of a whole frozen Thanksgiving turkey was at $1.32 a lb under Bush. It’s up to $1.81 under Obama giving Americans that much less to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.

groceriesThe price of a tub of margarine went up from $1.50 to $2.10. But that won’t be a problem for long because thanks to Obama it may soon become hard to get margarine at any price.

Obama’s FDA is considering a ban on trans fat in foods. Like incandescent bulbs and cheap free market health insurance, margarine may become one of those things that you can no longer buy anymore.

It will also mean that many other foods will either be banned, become more expensive or taste worse.

The FDA had already mandated trans fat labeling on products. The new ban would not protect anyone; instead it would take away the right of Americans to choose what they eat. Under the Pure Food and Drug Act of 1906, the FDA was created to prevent “the manufacture, sale, or transportation of adulterated or misbranded or poisonous or deleterious foods, drugs, medicines, and liquors.” Its claim that trans fat in foods make them adulterated is a deliberate misinterpretation of its powers.

The FDA’s food policing powers do not give it the right to ban unhealthy foods. If they did, the FDA could outlaw every kind of junk food. And it has begun doing that with its argument that trans fats are unsafe because they are unhealthy; building up plaque in arteries and increasing the risk of heart attacks.

Here’s a short list of foods that build up plaque in arteries and increase the risk of heart attacks.

Milk, butter, cheese, ice cream, hot dogs, salami, French fries and eggs. The FDA has given itself the authority to ban everything from a glass of milk to a carton of eggs. And that’s not an exaggeration.

Last year a new study came out whose author claimed that eating eggs was as bad for the heart as smoking cigarettes, compared the egg industry to the tobacco industry and was followed by suggestions that egg cartons should carry health warnings like tobacco cartons.

Every time you see another one of those contradictory health warning stories, imagine that they can lead to a ban on everything from wine to chocolate to eggs

Patrick Smith wrote of – Obama’s unabated childish desire to ruin Putin and Russia’s economy . And my thought perhaps kill oil production in the U.S for Obama’s Greenies. Kerry told the Saudis 1) to raise production and 2) to cut its crude price. Keep in mind these pertinent numbers: The Saudis produce a barrel of oil for less than $30 as break-even in the national budget; the Russians need apx $105.

Shortly after Kerry’s visit, the Saudis began increasing production, sure enough — by more than 100,000 barrels daily Other OPEC members are screaming for relief, and the Saudis make back-to-back moves certain to push falling prices still lower?

 

Remember The Health Security Act (Hillary Care)

hillary bill obama cartoonNov. 12, 1993 as the Health Security Act (Hillary Care)was in its death throes, Bill Clinton was so concerned about AIDS that , he suggested that a provision be added to the bill mandating a one-time screening for AIDS be done on all US citizens.

Clinton also proposed having the CDC require every citizen with full-blown AIDS to be confined to AIDS sanatoriums until they were no longer contagious, or until they died.

The sanatoriums were to be situated in sparsely-populated areas of the country. Upon admission, patients would be required to sign living wills with euthanasia previsions that could be triggered by proxy when their healthcare providers deemed them to be “terminal.”

The AIDS provision Clinton wanted to add to Hillarycare does not appear to be in Obamacare. However, the same federal Health Board that will be charged with the responsibility of doing the cost analysis on the merits of keeping the elderly alive versus denying them lifesaving procedures will also be responsible for preparing a cost analysis on the value of keeping terminally-ill AIDS victims alive on the public dime.(Does that mean the Very Rich will be kept alive with their private funds but, we Medicare, Obamacare Folks will be Euthanized at some point.?

It’s interesting to note that the gay and lesbian population actively campaigned for Clinton  just as the elderly—the primary target of the Obamacare Health Board—actively campaigned, and voted, for Barack Obama in 2008.

112 Hillary more radicle than Obama

Hillary more radicle than Obama     ***************

Yet, try to convince the gay and lesbian community that, if Hillarycare hadn’t failed, most of them would be spending their final days in an isolated AIDS sanatorium somewhere in the Badlands.

large group we wont take it any moreAnd the blue-haired seniors in Florida and Arizona may find that their next flare-up of irritable bowel syndrome, or their next broken hip, might land them in a terminal care unit of their local hospital where those who linger while dying go to die, instead of sitting around bragging about their latest hospital adventure at the assisted living center.

This is the kind of health care that Barack Obama has worked to move heaven and earth to give America. One of the paragraphs states the professionals assume older patients are too old/frail for treatment, and as a result are discriminating against that particular age group. Discrimination has got nothing to do with it in my opinion. The reason they’re being denied treatment boils down to one thing – money.

Make no mistake about it. The Obama Health Board, or as it is legislatively known, the Federal Coordinating Council for Comparative Research, headed by death merchants the likes of Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, based on the vision of Dr. Robert Pearlman, the Chief of Ethics Evaluation for the Veteran’s Administration National Center for Ethics in Health Care, who was the visionary behind the notion that disabled veterans who do not want to be a burden to their families or to society, have the right to death with dignity through assisted suicide.

Pearlman authored his death protocol in 1997. For the remaining three years of the Clinton Administration, Pearlman‘s 52-page end-of-life planning document, “Your Life, Your Choices,” not only became the basis for the living wills used by disabled military people but, it also became the framework for the federal regulation that now requires hospitals and other medical care facilities to pressure patients—particularly elderly patients—to sign Living Wills (i.e., euthanasia provisions). Today, in violation of the Hippocratic Oath, doctors regularly euthanize patients deemed to be terminally-ill.

Among the list of terminal illnesses that can trigger the Living Will death-with-dignity provision is old-age.

If you’re old, sick or disabled — or have a friend or loved one who is — you should be very wary of Democratic healthcare plans. And, too, you should keep an eye on “the Orwellian thinking of the president. And health care advisor, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the brother of the former White House chief of staff.” This is, after all, one of the two advisors to President Obama dubbed deadly doctors” by the New York Post, a man also known as “Doctor Death,” who, as conservative blogger Gateway Pundit explained, “supports euthanasia … [and] believe[s] medical care should be reserved for non-disabled ‘participating’ members of society.”

It’s become a growing theme : ”Obamacare” will mean mandatory euthanasia for your grandmother in order to save money, and the person who created the ideological underpinnings for that policy is the brother of former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and Hillarycare.

Ezekiel Emanuel, who’s currently advising the administration on healthcare reform through a post at the White House Office of Management and Budget,

The elderly are being singled out for extermination because the Social Security system is bankrupt. While the bureaucrats blame the bankruptcy of Social Security on the fact that people now live too long,

the reality is that Social Security is bankrupt specifically because, for the last 77 years, elected politicians stole the Social Security Trust Fund (which was supposed to have been invested, by law, in high yield government bonds) and used your money to create the welfare society. That money is now long gone. In its place are IOUs the government cannot redeem. Today’s elderly are now expected to pay for that theft with their lives because there are too many people seeking repayment of the funds they deposited, in good faith

Among the list of terminal illnesses that Obamacare can trigger is the Living Will death-with-dignity provision is old-age.

obamacare now you know whats in it

Obama the Corporatist

what happened to land of the free

By Ron Paul

Lately, many have characterized this administration as socialist, or having strong socialist leanings. I differ with this characterization. This is not to say Mr. Obama believes in free markets by any means. On the contrary, he has done and said much that demonstrates his fundamental misunderstanding of and hostility toward the truly free market.

But a closer, honest examination of his policies and actions in office reveals that, much like the previous administration, he is very much a corporatist. This in many ways can be more insidious and worse than being an outright socialist.

Socialism is a system where the government directly owns and manages businesses. Corporatism is a system where businesses are nominally in private hands, but are in fact controlled by the government. In a corporatist state, government officials often act in collusion with their favored business interests to design policies that give those interests a monopoly position, to the detriment of both competitors and consumers.

A careful examination of the policies pursued by the Obama administration and his allies in Congress shows that their agenda is corporatist. For example, the health care bill does not establish a Canadian-style government-run single-payer health care system. Instead, it relies on mandates forcing every American to purchase private health insurance or pay a fine. It also includes subsidies for low-income Americans and government-run health care “exchanges.”

Contrary to the claims of the proponents of the health care bill, large insurance and pharmaceutical companies were enthusiastic supporters of many provisions of this legislation because they knew in the end their bottom lines would be enriched by Obamacare.

To call the president a corporatist is not to soft-pedal criticism of his administration. It is merely a more accurate description of the president’s agenda

obama-communism.jpg rothchildsWhen he is called a socialist, the president and his defenders can easily deflect that charge by pointing out that the historical meaning of socialism is government ownership of industry; under the president’s policies, industry remains in nominally private hands. Using the more accurate term — corporatism — forces the president to defend his policies that increase government control of private industries and ignore  his  favorite Corps like GE and the Comcast Monopoly. as he expands de facto subsidies to big businesses.

This also promotes the understanding that though the current system may not be pure socialism, neither is it free market since government controls the private sector through taxes, regulations and subsidies, and has done so for decades.

Using precise terms can prevent future statists from successfully blaming the inevitable failure of their programs on the remnants of the free market that are still allowed to exist. We must not allow the disastrous results of corporatism to be ascribed incorrectly to free market capitalism or used as a justification for more government expansion. Most importantly, we must learn what freedom really is and educate others on how infringements on our economic liberties caused our economic woes in the first place.

Government is the Problem. It Cannot Be the Solution.

The fundamental problem with health care costs in America is that the doctor-patient relationship has been profoundly altered by third-party interference. Third parties, either government agencies themselves or nominally private insurance companies virtually forced upon us by government policies, have not only destroyed doctor-patient confidentiality. They also inescapably drive up costs because basic market disciplines — supply and demand, price sensitivity and profit signals — are destroyed. Obamacare, via its insurance mandate, is more of the same misdiagnosis.

Who is there to enforce the rule of law, a Supreme Court ruling or the Constitution? NO ONE?

undocumented democrats

The 2012 election has often been described as the most pivotal since 1860. This statement is not hyperbole. Barack Obama was re-elected and the United States will never be the same, nor will it be able to re-capture its once lofty status as the most dominant nation in the history of mankind.

The overwhelming majority of Americans do not understand that Obama’s first term was dedicated to putting in place executive power to enable him and the administration to fulfill the campaign promise of “transforming America” in his second term regardless of which political party controls Congress.

The most significant accomplishment of Obama’s first term is to make Congress irrelevant. Under the myopic and blindly loyal leadership of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, the Democrats have succeeded in creating an imperial and, in a second term, a potential dictatorial presidency

During the first two years of the Obama administration when the Democrats overwhelming controlled both Houses of Congress and the media was in an Obama worshipping stupor, a myriad of laws were passed and actions taken which transferred virtually unlimited power to the executive branch.

The birth of multi-thousand page laws was not an aberration. This tactic was adopted so the bureaucracy controlled by Obama appointees would have sole discretion in interpreting vaguely written laws and enforcing thousands of pages of regulations they and not Congress would subsequently write.

obama-immelt

For example, in the 2,700 pages of ObamaCare there are more than 2,500 references to the Secretary of Health and Human Services. There are more than 700 instances when he or she is instructed that they “shall” do something and more than 200 times when they “may” take at their sole discretion some form of regulatory action. On 139 occasions, the law mentions that the “Secretary determines.” In essence one person, appointed by and reporting to the president, will be in charge of the health care of 310 million Americans once ObamaCare is fully operational.

The same is true in the 2,319 pages of the Dodd-Frank Financial Reform Act which confers nearly unlimited power on various agencies to control by fiat the nation’s financial, banking and investment sectors. The bill also creates new agencies, such as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, not subject to any oversight by Congress. This overall process was repeated numerous times with other legislation all with the intent of granting unfettered power to the executive branch controlled by Barack Obama and his radical associates.

Additionally, the Obama administration has, through its unilaterally determined rule making and regulatory powers, created laws out of whole cloth. The Environmental Protection Agency on a near daily basis issues new regulations clearly out of their purview in order to modify and change environmental laws previously passed and to impose a radical green agenda never approved by Congress. The same is true of the Energy and Interior Departments among many others.

None of these extra-constitutional actions have been challenged by Congress. The left in America knows this usurpation of power is nearly impossible to reverse unless stopped in its early stages.

It is clearly the mindset of this administration and its appointees that Congress is merely a nuisance and can be ignored after they were able to take full advantage of the useful idiots in the Democrat controlled House and Senate in 2009-2010 and the Democrat Senate in the current Congress.

Additionally, Barack Obama knows his re-election a Republican controlled House and Senate will not be able to enact any legislation to roll back the power previously granted to the Executive Branch or usurped by them. His veto will not be overridden as there will always be at least 145 Democratic members of the House or 34 in the Senate in agreement with or intimidated by an administration more than willing to use Chicago style political tactics.

The stalemate between the Executive and Legislative Branches will inure to the benefit of Barack Obama and his fellow leftists.

The most significant power Congress has is the control of the purse-strings as all spending must be approved by them. However, Barack Obama, as confirmed by his willingness to do or say anything and his unscrupulous tactics, has not only threaten government shutdowns but would deliberately withhold payments to those dependent on government support as a means of intimidating and forcing a Republican controlled Congress to surrender to his demands, thus neutering their ability to control the administration through spending constraints.

Further, this administration has shown contempt for the courts by ignoring various court orders, e.g. the Gulf of Mexico oil drilling moratorium, as well as stonewalling subpoenas and requests issued by Congress. The Eric Holder Justice Department has become the epitome of corruption as part of the most dishonest and deceitful administration in American history. The arrogance of Barack Obama and his minions have become more blatant as he does not have to be concerned with re-election.

Who is there to enforce the rule of law, a Supreme Court ruling or the Constitution? No one. Barack Obama and his fellow-travelers are unchallenged as they run roughshod over the American people.

The nation is not dealing with a person of character and integrity but someone of single-minded purpose and overwhelming narcissism. Judging by his actions, words and deeds he does not intend to work with Congress either Republican or Democrat but rather to force his radical agenda on the American people through the power he has usurped or been granted.

The governmental structure of the United States was set up by the founders in the hope that over the years only those people of high moral character and integrity would assume the reins of power. However, knowing that was not always possible, they dispersed power over three distinct and independent branches as a check on each other.

Founders-miss_us_yet

What they could not imagine is the surrender and abdication of its constitutional duty by the preeminent governmental branch, the Congress, to a chief executive devoid of any character or integrity coupled with a judiciary essentially powerless to enforce the law when the chief executive ignores them.

Conservatives, Libertarians, and the Republican Party must come to grips with this moment in time and their historical role in denying Barack Obama and his minions their ultimate goal. All resources must be directed at that end-game and not merely controlling Congress and the various committee chairmanships.

Obama Seizes Control Over All Food Production Under Executive Order:

obama anger

Mike Adams Reports

Published on Mar 20, 2012

NaturalNews “We told ya so” just doesn’t quite cut it anymore. As the American sheeple slept, selfishly refusing to take a stand against tyranny, the Obama administration has been plotting what can only be called a total government takeover of America.

On March 16, 2012, President Obama issued an executive order entitled, “NATIONAL DEFENSE RESOURCES PREPAREDNESS.” (http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-o……)

This executive order states that the President alone has the authority to take over all resources in the nation (labor, food, industry, etc.) as long as it is done “to promote the national defense” — a phrase so vague that it could mean practically anything.

The power to seize control and take over these resources is delegated to the following government authorities:

(1) the Secretary of Agriculture with respect to food resources, food resource facilities, livestock resources, veterinary resources, plant health resources, and the domestic distribution of farm equipment and commercial fertilizer;

(2) the Secretary of Energy with respect to all forms of energy;

(3) the Secretary of Health and Human Services with respect to health resources;

(4) the Secretary of Transportation with respect to all forms of civil transportation;

(5) the Secretary of Defense with respect to water resources; and

(6) the Secretary of Commerce with respect to all other materials, services, and facilities, including construction materials.

This takeover is designed, in part, to “stockpile supplies” for the U.S. military. Authority for this total takeover of all national resources is granted with nothing more than the writing of a single statement that claims these actions are necessary to “promote the national defense.” As stated in the order:

the authority delegated by section 201 of this order may be used only to support programs that have been determined in writing as necessary or appropriate to promote the national defense:

(a) by the Secretary of Defense with respect to military production and construction, military assistance to foreign nations, military use of civil transportation, stockpiles managed by the Department of Defense, space, and directly related activities;

What all this means is that the U.S. government now claims the power to simply march onto your farm with guns drawn and demand all your crops, seeds, livestock and farm equipment.

Think I’m exaggerating? Read it yourself!

And for those living in denial who refuse to accept the reality of what’s happening in America, remember the following:

• When NaturalNews reported on the existence of the NDAA, we were told our reporting was misleading because Obama opposed it and wouldn’t sign it.

• When Obama betrayed America and signed the bill, we were told our reporting was misleading because “it didn’t apply to Americans.”

• When Obama admitted it did apply to Americans, he announced that he would choose “not to use it on Americans” but only by the grace of his restraint. Nobody who previously accused us of misleading the public had the integrity to offer us an apology and say, “Gee, you were right, it DOES apply to Americans!”

• Now Obama has seized control over all food, farms, livestock, water and transportation across America. How many brain-dead Americans will continue to live in denial and try to convince themselves this is not happening? Sticking your head in the sand does not make this go away…

The sole purpose for euthanizing the elderly is to reduce the drain on a bankrupt Social Security and Medicare system

BILL CLINTON EXCITED

According to the protocol of A Clinton White House meeting that took place on Nov. 12, 1993,
“…The President…” meeting with senior aide Gene Sperling and two other Clinton aides identified in the protocol only as as JFS and DG “…gives an overview of the AIDS situation and its relationship to the Health Security Act. Based on position papers submitted to the President from various organizations that include the WHO and the CDC, it is evident that AIDS is an epidemic in the United States. Juggling figures to show [only those with active AIDS] has kept the figures artificially low…The President now believes that it would be impossible to include any…AIDS patients with those citizens to be covered by the Health Security Act.”
Clinton was so concerned about AIDS that on Nov. 12, 1993 as the Health Security Act was in its death throes, he suggested that a provision be added to the bill mandating a one-time screening for AIDS be done on all US citizens. **Clinton also proposed having the CDC require every citizen with full-blown AIDS to be confined to AIDS sanatoriums until they were no longer contagious, or until they died. The sanatoriums were to be situated in sparsely-populated areas of the country.

Upon admission, patients would be required to sign living wills with euthanasia previsions that could be triggered by proxy when their healthcare providers deemed them to be “terminal.” The AIDS provision Clinton wanted to add to Hillarycare does not appear to be in Obamacare.

However, the same federal Health Board that will be charged with the responsibility of doing the cost analysis on the merits of keeping the elderly alive versus denying them lifesaving procedures will also be responsible for preparing a cost analysis on the value of keeping terminally-ill AIDS victims alive on the public dime.

It’s interesting to note that the gay and lesbian population actively campaigned for Clinton in 1992 and 1996 just as the elderly—the primary target of the Obamacare Health Board actively campaigned, and voted, for Barack Obama in 2008. Yet, try to convince the gay and lesbian community that, if Hillarycare hadn’t failed, most of them would be spending their final days in an isolated AIDS sanatorium somewhere in the Badlands.   hillary-in-blue-hijab-300x205

And the blue-haired seniors in Florida and Arizona may find that their next flare-up of irritable bowel syndrome, or their next broken hip, might land them in a terminal care unit of their local hospital where those who linger while dying go to die, instead of sitting around bragging about their latest hospital adventure at the assisted living center.

Make no mistake about it. The Obama Health Board, or as it is legislatively known, the Federal Coordinating Council for Comparative Research, headed by death merchants the likes of Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel (Dr. Death)based on the vision of Dr. Robert Pearlman, the Chief of Ethics Evaluation for the Veteran’s Administration National Center for Ethics in Health Care, who was the visionary behind the notion that disabled veterans who do not want to be a burden to their families or to society, have the right to death with dignity through assisted suicide.

Today, in violation of the Hippocratic Oath, doctors regularly euthannize patients deemed to be terminally-ill. Among the list of terminal illnesses that can trigger the Living Will death-with-dignity provision is old-age.!!!

No right-minded person should ever sign a living will unless they have a penchant to prematurely expedite their exodus from this world. When you sign a living will, you are actually signing your own death warrant—and you are giving someone you don’t know the right to end your life when they see fit to do so.

The argument of the pro-euthanasia crowd (whose primary goal is population reduction at both ends of the age corridor) is that people have a right to death with dignity.
There is no such thing. There is no dignity in death. Even in a roomful of people, death is a journey we travel alone. God, not a bureaucrat, appointed when that journey will begin for each of us.
Agendized bureaucrats and their minions in the medical community do not possess an inherent right to hasten that journey because they view us as a drain on the financial coffers of the State. or because stupid men believe the populations of the nations are responsible for cyclic weather change and floods and droughts. And, by reducing the population of the United States we will somehow make the world a better place.

The sole purpose for euthanizing the elderly is to reduce the drain on a bankrupt Social Security and Medicare system. The government of the United States not only stole the Social Security Trust Fund. Now they want to kill the elderly when they come to collect the money due them in their old age.

imagesCA103W3NHere’s just one of a thousand examples of “death with dignity.” On February 20, 1998 when Mary Helmueller, a RN from Minneapolis, was visiting friends in Mexico City, her grandmother fractured her left knee and was admitted to a local hospital. When Helmueller returned, she learned that her grandmother had died. According to the hospital records concerning her grandmother’s demise which Helmueller personally examined, her grandmother was alert and oriented upon admission but, within 48 hours, she went into a coma.
The “coma” was in fact, unconsciousness induced by morphine. According to nurses at the local hospital who attended her, she would awaken between pain medications saying: “I don’t want to die. I want to live to see Johnny ordained. I want to see Greta walk.” (Johnny was her grandson who was studying for the priesthood in Rome. Greta was her new great-granddaughter.) She was transferred to a hospice where she died a day or so later.

Her medical charts said she had a stroke and was in renal failure.
Helmueller insisted that her grandmother had no terminal illnesses. But, based on federal guidelines, she did. She was old. Old age is construed to be a terminal illness since you can’t recover from it. Also, according to Helmueller, to the best of her knowledge, her grandmother never signed a living will. It was not until hospice officials called family members and told them that death was imminent and there was no chance the elderly woman would recover, that they tacitly gave the hospital permission to execute her. Keep in mind, all that was wrong with her when she was transferred to the hospice was a fractured knee and overmedication—by the medical staff.

Carefully tracing the events that led up to her grandmother’s “coma,” Helmueller discovered that her grandmother became increasingly unresponsive after each morphine treatment. It appeared to Helmueller that her grandmother’s coma was caused by a morphine overdose.

However, the admitting records at the hospice affirm the statements of two hospice doctors who swore, by their signatures, that she was terminally ill. However, the first doctor, the director of the hospice, never examined or evaluated her—nor did he so much as review her chart which, by the way, listed her as a “No Code” patient.

The second doctor was on vacation when Helmueller’s grandmother arrived via ambulance from the hospital. He returned from vacation three days after her death. Yet, in the expert medical opinions of both doctors—neither of whom ever saw her while she was living—she was terminal when she was admitted.

The medical-legal community now defines terminal illness as any incurable or irreversible illness or chronic medical problem that will, or could, result in death in six months without medication or medical intervention.

What that means is, if you suffer from heart disease that is under control with medication, but you are nearing retirement age, under Obamacare, you could be construed to be terminally-ill by the federal guidelnes mandated by the Death Squad.

Therefore, if youy’ve signed a living will, and you have a chronic illnesses or catastropic disability, you can be denied medical treatment or suddenly find yourself in a morphine-induced “coma,”—and euthanized. Pinellas County, Florida Circuit Court Judge George S. Geer ordered Terri Schiavo to be denied liquid nourishment and life-sustaining water—sentencing an innocent woman to be executed in an extremely painful manner.

No judge in the United States of America has a constitutional right to sentence an unconvicted, innocent person to death. No judge in the United States could pronounce a death sentence on even the most notorious mass murderer that entailed starving them to death to the extent of even denying them water and have it stand up under judicial scrutiny.

Yet, that’s what Geer did to Schiavo. No court overruled him, and no governor “pardoned her.” The death sentence stood, and Terri Schiavo was executed by the State of Florida..
The 15-member Obama Health Board was created under HR 1, The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The board will gain its authority from HR 3200, The America’s Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009. The board, which the legislation purports to be an advisory panel created to perform cost analysis of all phases of the stimulus plan is, in reality,

a panel of physicians and healthcare providers whose role it will be to determine at what point it is no longer cost productive to sanction the use of taxpayer dollars to save the life of a patient who requires a surgical procedure, medical procedure or lifesaving medications to correct a medical malady that threatens the life of an elderly patient or someone with a catastrophic illness.

The specific language that deals with the rationing of healthcare to the elderly found in The America’s Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009 (which was drafted in part by Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, brother of White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel), an advocate of assisted suicide, with considerable input from Dr. Pearlman, the author of Your Life, Your Choices” the head of ethics evaluation for the Center for Ethics in Health Care in the VA.

On Sun., Aug. 23, Chris Wallace, host of Fox News Sunday questioned Tammy Duckworth, an Assistant Secretary of Veterans Affairs about the “death book” that suggests to all disable veterans that their lives aren’t worth living and that they should consider “end-of-life” options.

Duckworth, herself a paraplegic who lost both legs as a helicopter pilot in Iraq, told Wallace that the Obama Administration was not using Pearlman’s death book. She then noted that it was used during the Bush   Administration.*** Wallace corrected her by reading a July 9, 2009 VA memo which clearly indicates an Obama mandate that Your Life, Your Choices, be supplied to every veteran—not just those who are traumatically disabled.
Duckworth told Wallace that, as the copilot of a Blackhawk helicopter, when she was shot down over Iraq, she had both a living will and a power of attorney that allowed her husband to execute her wishes. Duckworth was wounded on Bush’s watch, not Obama’s. Had Duckworth been wounded in Afghanistan or Iraq on Obama’s watch, in a post-passage Obamacare world, under Obama’s federal Health Board guidelines that weighs not only the monetary cost to save and rehabilitate the wounded warrior, but also the post-medical care cost in terms of the disability income, the government would be obligated to pay to that wounded warrior for the rest of his or her life.
When President George W. Bush learned that the Veteran’s Administration was using Pearlman’s death book in 2007, he asked that a copy of the booklet be sent to the White House. After reading the worksheet on page 21 that poised various negative life scenarios and then asks the reader to decide whether or not his or her own life is actually worth living. One of the most tasteless scenarios is this one: “Have you ever heard anyone say, ‘if I’m a vegetable, pull the plug.’?”

Bush ordered the VA to discontinue its use. Why would the Veterans’ Administration, or any agency of the United States government, pose questions specifically to make members of the armed services question their own worthiness as humans, and make them feel guilty for surviving the wounds that disabled them? Your Life, Your Choice was actually designed to cause disabled servicemen (and women) to ponder just how much of a burden they were on their families, and whether they should do the merciful thing and end their own lives?

In point of fact, the Veteran’s Administration wasn’t raising the specter because they believe disabled veterans are a financial burden on their families but, rather, because they are a financial drain on the resources of the State.
At the start of his second term, in 2005, Bush-43 began frantically waving a large warning flags that Social Security was very literally—not theoretically—bankrupt. Bush warned that if something was not done very quickly, within 10 years, the system would collapse and the federal government would no longer be able to meet its financial obligations under Social Security. In order to devise a system that would prevent the bureaucracy from putting Social Security receipts into the general treasury and spending it instead of placing it in a trust fund as required by law,

Bush proposed privatizing Social Security. Under Bush’s idea, the money would go into investment accounts that Congress could not touch. The bureaucracy didn’t like that idea. , the left accused him of fearmongering while they assured America’s retirement age seniors and the soon-to-be retirement age seniors that there was absolutely nothing wrong with the Social Security system.

Adding their voice to calm America was the AARP, the advocacy group of the elderly—which receives millions of dollars in federal grants each year to advocate to seniors on the behalf of the federal government.
The bureaucracy knew there was a major problem—too many old people and not even retirement revenue. The problem existed for over a decade before George W. Bush stumbled across it in 2005. Twenty years of unrestricted abortion in the United States between Jan. 22, 1973 and Jan. 20, 1993 (radically shifted as the population of the United States began to age.
The problem wasn’t that there were too many elderly people. The problem was that there weren’t enough young people when the Clintons came to the White House) eliminated approximately 32 million future taxpayers.

Adding the children these aborted babies did not grow up to have, we actually lost 49.6 million future taxpayers and consumers between 1973 and 1993. Today, after a quarter century of killing the unborn in the United States, that number has reach just a hair under 70 million. From 1973 to 2009, the age demographics of the nation paying into the Social Security system.

The far left changed the Trust Fund law and stole the Social Security Trust receipts. They replaced the money with worthless IOUs. Today, there is no trust fund. Tax receipts earn 1% interest, but the money is virtually spent as soon as it’s received, so it doesn’t matter. The money deducted from your paycheck this month covers someone else’s Social Security check next month. Social Security has become a pyramid scheme.

Violating the Ponzi law is what Bernie Madoff went to prison for. Like every pyramid scheme, ultimately there will be more recipients demanding benefits than there will be workers to fund those payments. When that happens, Uncle Sam’s Ponzi scheme will collapse.

Before that happens, government has to find a way to restore the age balance in the taxpayer pool needed to keep the fund solvent.** Sadly, Hillary Clinton’s failed Health Security Act of 1993 offered a bureaucratic solution: rationed healthcare. Obama’s 15-member Health Board, officially branded as the Federal Coordinating Council for Comparative Research, is authorized by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Its mandate is to “…assist the agencies of the federal government, including HHS and the Department of Veterans Affairs…to coordinate comparative effectiveness and related health service research…The Council will consider the needs of the population served by federal programs.

.” The verbiage in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. makes it appear that the Federal Coordinating Council for Comparative Research **was legislated as an advisory panel to do cost analysis on all facets of the stimulus package as though to suggest their job is to make sure stimulus money is properly disbursed and that council—funded with $1.1 billion annually—will address the impact of the stimulus bill on subpopulations in the United States. Its deliberations, according to the legislation, will be public and transparent based, the government’s memo said, on the  Resident’s commitment to open government.

The Council will be headed by Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel (Dr death) brother of  former Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel. From the HHS are Anne C. Haddox, Chief Policy Officer; Dr. Thomas B. Valuck, MD, Senior Advisor in the Center of Medicare Management; Peter Delaney, Director of the Office of Applied Studies; Dr. Carolyn Clancy, MD; Deborah Hopson, Ph.D, RN, Associate Administrator, HIV/AIDS Bureau; Dr. David Hunt, MD; James Scanlon, Acting Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation; Dr. Elizabeth Nabel, MD, National Institute of Health; Dr. Garth Graham, MD, Office of Minority Health; Dr. Jesse Goodman, MD, Acting Chief Medical Officer for the FDA; Dr. Rosaly Correa-de-Araujo, MD, Acting Deputy for Office on Disability, HHS; Neera Tanden, attorney for Health Reform at HHS; Dr. Joel Kupersmith, MD, Veteran’s Administration; and Dr. Michael Kilpatrick, MD, Department of Defense.

Obamacare: A House of Lies

evil face 2

**By MONEY MORNING STAFF REPORTS

If current trends continue, Obamacare will go down as one of the biggest mistakes in our government’s history.

Of the many Obamacare lies, the biggest fallacy was that “If you like your plan can keep your plan.”

Corporations from GE, IBM, to Time Warner have said they will stop providing insurance for hundreds of thousands of employees. Already, over 4.5 million Americans have received cancellation letters because of Obamacare and it’s estimated that one-third of all U.S. employers could stop offering health insurance to their workers.

Others who still receive healthcare through their employer might have thought they were safe from the law, but starting in 2014-2015-2016 they will feel Obamacare’s wrath, if they haven’t already.

(Many of the most onerous parts of Obamacare have recently been postponed until after the 2014 and 2016 elections. safeguarding the votes of progressive democrats. Who will go back to voting with Harry Reed and Nancy Pelosi as soon as their seats in government are assured.)

And don’t forget, healthcare was supposed to be “affordable for all.” But experts are now predicting premiums could rise up to 413% for some individuals.

Millions of other Americans are finding out that the many Obamacare taxes don’t just hurt those making over $250,000.

Worse, the federal subsidies provided to lower-income individuals under Obamacare won’t provide enough financial assistance for some consumers and***the burden of paying for these subsidies ultimately falls on middle class Americans, who will suffer most under the law. (We told you so)

The government program officially known as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is quickly becoming a house of lies.

Even staunch liberal Michael Moore declared, “Obamacare is awful” in a New York Times op-ed.”For many people, the ‘affordable’ part of the Affordable Care Act risks being a cruel joke,” he wrote. “The cheapest plan available to a 60-year-old couple making $65,000 a year in Hartford, Conn., will cost $11,800 in annual premiums. And their deductible will be $12,600. If both become seriously ill, they might have to pay almost $25,000 in a single year.” (Redistribution ?)

Americans are taking notice of the disastrous plan. Obamacare’s approval rating recently hit an all-time low of 35%.

Perhaps the most ominous sign about Obamacare’s future is that doctors are among the biggest Obamacare critics.

Besides the taxes and higher costs, doctors are worried that Obamacare will result in poor patient care.

A recent study by the prestigious Doctor Patient Medical Association revealed that an astounding 90% of doctors feel that the U.S. health care system is heading in the wrong direction.

In 2010, the American Medical Association lost over 215,000 members just because they didn’t agree with Obamacare. (Obama cares less. I believe progressive  immigration will bring to the U.S thousands of doctors from 3rd world countries like India, Pakistan even Iran)

The Association of American Medical Colleges predicts a shortage of 160,000 doctors by 2025, and applications for medical programs are already down 6%.

A poll from The Doctors Company revealed 60% of doctors said Obamacare will have a negative impact on patient care. And another poll done by Jackson & Coker in 2012 showed that 55% of doctors surveyed would repeal and replace Obamacare.

Add it all up and there’s going to be a detrimental shift in how you interact with your physicians.

(How about the sur charge on floridians restaurant bills? !!!!!)

**Money Morning Staff Reports

Obamacare Tax Hikes Stoke Outrage                              Many of the Obamacare taxes are already in effect, others will hit after elections.. But they are already infuriating millions of Americans.

While even Obamacare detractors applaud the requirement that insurance companies cover pre-existing conditions and put a stop to lifetime caps on benefits, they say these laudable benefits(the cheese) don’t compensate for the bills high cost – especially in new taxes.(the trap comes later)

According to most experts, Obamacare will create a total of twenty new taxes or tax hikes on the American people.

In fact, the Obama administration has already given the IRS an extra $500 million to enforce the rules and regulations of Obamacare.

The new taxes don’t bode well for millions of middle-class Americans. Incomes for the rich have soared this decade but middle class workers have seen their wages stagnate and even drop since the 2008 Recession.

Many fear Obamacare with its high insurance costs and new taxes, could provide the middle class a fatal blow.

The Culture of Death: The Assault on the elderly

large group we wont take it any moreThe Culture of Death: The Assault on the elderly.( History books will read that Lincoln freed the slaves and Obama enslaved the free.)

From Obamacare, and Death Panels by ray harvey

When it is the government, rather than private individuals through the open market, deciding what is or isn’t “unnecessary care,” and deciding what care to get “rid of,” then that by definition is government rationing. Government acts by compulsion. If government decides what is “necessary,” and grandma’s hip-replacement surgery is deemed “unnecessary” even if grandma wants the surgery, then grandma’s care has been rationed by the power of the state — no matter what words you use to describe it.

Here is what Barack Obama told the New York Times regarding his desire to control your health:  “The chronically ill and those toward the end of their lives are accounting for potentially 80 percent of the total health care bill out here. [Therefore] I think that there is going to have to be a conversation that is guided by doctors, scientists, ethicists. And then there is going to have to be a very difficult democratic conversation that takes place.”

It is very difficult to imagine the country making those decisions just through the normal political channels. And Obama also said “that’s part of why you have to have some independent group that can give you guidance”.

**Keep in mind that this unspeakable injustice would all be avoided if your inalienable right to your own life — and only your own life — were recognized as it should be.

In response to that despicable ideology, no less than Nat Hentoff — a civil libertarian about as far to the left as the socialist Noam Chomsky — wrote the following: “I was not intimidated during J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI hunt for reporters like me who criticized him. I railed against the Bush-Cheney war on the Bill of Rights without blinking. *But now I am finally scared of a White House administration. President Obama’s desired health care reform intends that a federal board (similar to the British model) — as in the Center for Health Outcomes Research and Evaluation in a current Democratic bill — decides whether your quality of life, regardless of your political party, merits government-controlled funds to keep you alive.

The members of that ultimate federal board will themselves not have examined or seen the patient in question. For another example of the growing, tumultuous resistance to “Dr. Obama,” particularly among seniors, there is a July 29 Washington,  Emanuel writes about rationing health care for older Americans that “allocation (of medical care) by age is not invidious discrimination.” (The Lancet, January 2009) He calls this form of rationing — which is fundamental to Obamacare goals — “the complete lives system.” 1996, he wrote that ***”services provided to individuals who are irreversibly prevented from being or becoming participating citizens are not basic and should not be guaranteed.”

Rationing is a basic part of Obama’s eventual master health care plan. Here is what Obama said in an April 28 New York Times interview (quoted in Washington Times July 9 editorial) in which he describes a government end-of-life services guide for the citizenry as we get to a certain age, or are in a certain grave condition. Our government will undertake, he says, a “very difficult democratic conversation” about how “the chronically ill and those toward the end of their lives are accounting for potentially 80 percent of the total health care” costs.

Ezekiel J. Emanuel, Chief Heathcare Advisor to Obama and brother of Rahm Emanuel said.”Vague promises of savings from cutting waste, enhancing prevention and wellness, installing electronic medical records and improving quality are merely ‘lipstick’ cost control, more for show and public relations than for true change. Savings will require changing how doctors think about their patients. Doctors take the Hippocratic Oath too seriously, as an imperative to do everything for the patient regardless of the cost or effects on others.”

(comments) Here is what will happen first:

“…I’m sorry sir…we cannot schedule that appointment for you in November 2010 to have that melanoma removed because you have not undergone your mandatory annual counseling after age 65…oh, of course you are right. I know you are only 62, but they did move the age down again this year…we have an opening in three months with the counselors office…would you like that?”

This is fully expected, but It will not be the people you will be FORCED to talk to in order to receive your care, nor the intentional delays in care that will be the most insidiously evil facets of this. It will be the conversations like this one below that will become commonplace that ONLY BEGIN to illustrate what it is all about:

“…Hi Jan, how are you?  I heard your father is resisting counseling. It must be difficult, I know. There just seems to be so much of that lately. I know I am only 40 years old, but I don’t understand why people like your father are so opposed to this.

I went with my mother to her counseling session, and while she was angry because she was supposed to have another five years before she had to go but they moved the age down again, she went anyway. I thought she was really rude to the counseling agent, who was just a young woman only doing her job. Hm.

Someone told me they are only hiring young women as counselors now, because the men who were doing it just got angry too easily and shouted at people to just “sign the damned papers”. Hm. I tried to tell my mom why they have to do this, but she said they do it just to get rid of old people to save money.

The counseling agent gave my mom a copy of the book “Death is Joy”. I read it, and it makes a lot of sense to me. Of course, when I was going to school, we didn’t have to read it, but now they have required classes they take every year beginning in first grade.

Suzie is in third grade and is taking the course this year that deals with the chapter on keeping birth rates down, and Tommy is in his senior year where they cover the financial aspects of care for the elderly. He was so excited, he said that since they have implemented this national care program, the number of elderly people has dropped dramatically, so they can spend more money on programs such as monthly equality checks for the economically disadvantaged and reparations for the descendants of slaves. I think it is wonderful.

He asked me why so many elderly people are so selfish and refuse to accept counseling…I didn’t really have an answer for him. Hm. Now, don’t be defensive, I am not criticizing your parents.I am just saying, it is a problem.

They had an hour-long program on PBS about this the other night, and they were saying how the people who are being selfish about this and refusing to take advantage of early exit programs that pay cash to their children are being so self-centered because they grew up in a time where everyone was self-centered and were interested only in money. You know, they showed films from the days of the capitalists where there were people who had what they called ‘gas-guzzlers”, and they used to make so much more money than they needed to live comfortably, so many people were going without health care because they were taking all the money…”

Then, just wait until they pass legislation for a “Death Benefit” that will be paid to the families of elderly people. That will be the icing on the cake. It will be presented as a compassionate gesture to help the families with their grief, and will put at ease those people slated for “end of life” counseling. I can see the conversation on this as well:

COUNSELOR:  Thank you for coming in today, sir. Now, let’s see…you have high blood pressure, rheumatoid arthritis but more importantly, positive genetic tags for vascular/heart disease, Alzheimer’s, matricular degeneration and three types of cancer, prostate, esophageal and colon. Prostate and colon are very high. We see one of these two expressing itself in the next three years.

MEEr…really?

COUNSELOR:  Yes. This is all very scientifically based, and the results are incontrovertible. There is no mistake.

ME:  Ahhh…could I speak to a doctor about this?

COUNSELOR: I am afraid not, sir. The rules are physicians are for direct care only,   and nothing else. Federal Statue HCR23.1771-b mandates that I communicate this information to you, and inform you of the various options.

ME: But you don’t know anything about medicine! You are a clerk, nothing more! How can I discuss this issue with you?

COUNSELOR: Sir, I have taken all the courses coming through High School, and attended the Life Counseling University courses offered by the government   I graduated in the top half of my class. I do understand the issues here.

MEBut…but…

COUNSELORLook, sir. You are getting old, and are soon going to be a burden on society. You don’t have cancer right now, and can still think and get around, but for how long? You need to think about your children and their children. We offer a special financial compensation package that will help them bear the grief of your passing, to be paid out upon your death. With your approval, we emailed them an official forms packet before this meeting.

ME:  I approved that?

COUNSELOR  Well, yes sir. The electronic copy is right here with your  signature (TURNS SCREEN TO FACE ME).

ME:  I never signed that!

COUNSELOR: Sir, didn’t you read the codocil that was automatically added at the bottom of your government supplied Will and Last Testament session that we finished up your first End of Life session you had with us last year?

You did click the button that said “I approve all the changes” and you did use your voice authentication to say “I do approve”.

ME:  What! What is going on here? I…

COUNSELOR: Your two sons and your daughter who came in with you today have been in communication with our department on this.

(Smiles) I think it is great that the government approves time-off pay for employees to attend these End of Life meetings for their parents. I’ll call them in…

ME:  Hey!  I am not finished discus…

(DOOR OPENS, CHILDREN ENTER)

SON 1: Dad, I am so glad you signed up for the Early Exit Death Benefit. I was really behind on my tax payments for last year, and that will put me over the top…

ME:  You…what?

SON 2:Yeah, dad. Billy is graduating from high school, and we want to send him to a quality college, but we could never afford it. But now we might…thanks to you.

Daughter: Oh, Daddy (tears in her eyes) I know none of us live forever, and I will miss you so much, but this money will allow me to pay th license fees to the government so I can open my dream business! Without you…

ME: HEY! WTF is going on here? I am not “ready to die”, I feel pretty good, I could live for another twenty years! I didn’t sign that damned thing, they just threw all this stuff in front of me! This is effing stupid! (TURNS TO COUNSELOR) Look, I don’t know what kind of crap you set in motion, but undo it. I didn’t sign up for this.

COUNSELOR: (PRIGGISH, TIGHT LIPPED LOOK ON HIS FACE) Sir…you have already been scheduled for next year, and your family has been paid that benefit in advance as the law allows. We cannot undo it. See the text that you signed (TURNS SCREEN) states explicitly that this if final and cannot be remanded…

ME: (SMASHES SREEN WITH HAND) LOOK! I DON’T GIVE A RAT’S ASS IF YOU HAVE TO BURROW THROUGH THE WIRES BACK TO THE CENTRAL COMPUTER SYSTEM YOURSELF, USING YOUR SLIMEY PENCIL NECK AS A LEG TO DO IT SO YOU CAN UNDO THIS ROYAL F*CKUP ON YOUR PART…

COUNSELOR: (HAND CUPPED OVER SPEAKER, EYES ON ME, WHISPERING) We have a 22-22 in here…get in here right away… DAUGHTER: (WAILS) How could you be so selfish?

SON 1:Great. I might as well go down to the Tax Police right now to get fitted for the volunteer industry uniform…How am I going to tell Billy he can’t go to the Barack Obama University? How?

DOOR OPENS, BURLY UNION GUYS IN BLACK COVERALLS RUN UP TO ME AND TASE ME. ALL GOES BLACK

Emanuel has said installing electronic medical records and improving quality are merely ‘lipstick’ cost control, more for show and public relations than for true change. Savings will require changing how doctors think about their patients. Doctors take the Hippocratic Oath too seriously, as an imperative to do everything for the patient regardless of the cost or effects on others.”

Democrats are generally slow on the uptake as they have been taught in their leftist schools to not use their minds and eyes and ears but rather to trust their loving government. One has but to study history to see the error of such blind trust in mankind as governments throughout history have murdered more innocent people than any given human institution.

Obama Administration’s New Proposed Rule For Medicare Part D

large group we wont take it any more

The Obama administration’s new proposed rule for Medicare Part D would eliminate half of all Medicare Part D plans and raise prescription drug premiums for millions of seniors by up to 20 percent, according to a U.S. House subcommittee chairman.

“Today, the average senior has 35 different [Medicare Part D] plans to choose from this year. This rule would reduce that choice to two plans. 50% of the plans offered today will be gone, and the health care that seniors like may go with it,” House Energy and Commerce Health Subcommittee chairman Rep. Joe Pitts said in a statement at a Feb. 26 hearing attended by a top administration health official.

“Limiting seniors’ choices like this will inevitably lead to higher costs. By some estimates, the restriction on the number of plans that can be offered could cause premiums to rise by 10%-20%. Costs to the federal government may increase by $1.2-1.6 billion according to a study by Milliman,” Pitts said. “…I urge Secretary Sebelius and Administrator Tavenner to rescind this.

The study Pitts cited also showed that the new rule would increase  out-of-pocket drug costs for 6.9 million seniors who do not qualify for  low-income subsidies, and would raise federal taxpayer costs for 6 million  seniors who do qualify.

President Bush signed Medicare Part D into law in 2003 to subsidize  prescription drug costs for Medicare beneficiaries.

The Daily  Caller reported that the administration’s Centers for Medicare and Medicaid  Services (CMS), a division of Kathleen Sebelius’ Department of Health and Human  Services (HHS), recently introduced a new proposed rule on the Federal Register called “Medicare  Program: Contract Year 2015 Policy and Technical Changes to the Medicare  Advantage and the Medicare Prescription Drug Benefit Programs.”

The new rule “would revise the Medicare Advantage (MA) program (Part C)  regulations and prescription drug benefit program (Part D) regulations to  implement statutory requirements; strengthen beneficiary protections; exclude  plans that perform poorly; improve program efficiency ; and clarify program  requirements,” according to the Federal Register.

The rule states that it also aims “to implement certain provisions of the Affordable Care Act.”  smiley-shocked028       Oh of course they do !!!! ???
