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

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?

 

Hillary more of the same

The same 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).That was in Hillary Care ,Today is in ObamaCare .

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.

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).

 

 

 

 

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

Many Democrat’s Say Old People Are Such A Burden. Enter Ezekiel Emanuel.

large group we wont take it any moreWho Says Old people are such a burden.

 by:Robert Laurie  

Democrats seem to love death. Whether they’re yammering about abortion or “end of life” planning, they just can’t get enough of talking up the myriad ways people can exit life’s stage. They always claim this is simply a discussion about personal responsibility and individual choice but, since they despise those ideals in virtually every other matter, it’s a hard argument to buy.

Enter Ezekiel Emanuelshocked

Emanuel was one of the chief architects of ObamaCare and is, of course, the brother of Rahm. Over at The Atlantic, he’s penned an article about his own death and he’s made a shocking announcement about the perfect age at which he hopes to die. While he very specifically rules out euthanasia, (oh really?) Emanuel says he hopes his ticker shuts down at the not-particularly-old age of 75. (In the healthcare bill-no help for elderly cancer patients 75 and older)

The reason? 75 is, apparently, the perfect age for a human to buy the farm. According to Emanuel, people who live longer than that risk struggling through a less-than-perfect existence.

Doubtless, death is a loss. It deprives us of experiences and milestones, of time spent with our spouse and children. In short, it deprives us of all the things we value.

Emanuel rambles on in a painfully long-winded argument about how modern medicine is extending lives but, in his view, does so by keeping people in a sad, miserable, and often painful state. The elderly are not enjoying being alive and – according to Emanuel – become burdensome shadows of their former selves.

Emanuel says “living as long as possible has drawbacks we often won’t admit to ourselves. I will leave aside the very real and oppressive financial and caregiving burdens that many, if not most, adults in the so-called sandwich generation are now experiencing, caught between the care of children and parents. Our living too long places real emotional weights on our progeny”

So, for the sake of their overburdened families, they should probably just snuff it at 75 rather than drag it out for another 20 years. After all, they’re probably pretty unhappy being alive, and their continued existence places a ton of emotional stress on their progeny.

Sure, their children may love them – and they’ll miss them when they’re gone – but as long as mom and dad are alive they’re putting a lot of pressure on their offspring.

“But parents also cast a big shadow for most children. Whether estranged, disengaged, or deeply loving, they set expectations, render judgments, impose their opinions, interfere, and are generally a looming presence for even adult children. This can be wonderful. It can be annoying. It can be destructive. But it is inescapable as long as the parent is alive. Examples abound in life and literature: Lear, the quintessential Jewish mother, the Tiger Mom. And while children can never fully escape this weight even after a parent dies, there is much less pressure to conform to parental expectations and demands after they are gone.”

How incredibly, horrifically, selfish.  

Hillary more of the same

Emanuel argues that the price of adding more years to your life is decreased ability. In short, he argues that we’re not really adding “life” as much as we’re stretching out the process of death – and he wants no part of it.

The example he gives to showcase the horrors of old age is truly disturbing. Not because the life in question is so miserable, but because it actually sounds pretty great – and it belongs to his own father.

“My father illustrates the situation well. About a decade ago, just shy of his 77th birthday, he began having pain in his abdomen. Like every good doctor, he kept denying that it was anything important. But after three weeks with no improvement, he was persuaded to see his physician. He had in fact had a heart attack, which led to a cardiac catheterization and ultimately a bypass. Since then, he has not been the same. Once the prototype of a hyperactive Emanuel, suddenly his walking, his talking, his humor got slower. Today he can swim, read the newspaper, needle his kids on the phone, and still live with my mother in their own house. But everything seems sluggish. Although he didn’t die from the heart attack, no one would say he is living a vibrant life. When he discussed it with me, my father said, “I have slowed down tremendously. That is a fact. I no longer make rounds at the hospital or teach.” Despite this, he also said he was happy.”

My father was 86 he was bed ridden. He told me he was very happy. He said he reads, watches TV and has visitors. I agree he worked hard all his life like many other elderly. This is their time to live out the rest of their time as they see fit. Not as monster Progressive Democrat’s dictate.

My father was not given the choice he was Euthanized during a downturn by another family member and a MS. Doctor. His Bank Accounts were cleared out as well. This is what is in store for many elderly by greedy children and caregivers.

So, let’s get this straight, Ezekiel’s own father has a happy, relatively healthy life. He lives with a wife he loves, gets to interact with the children he loves, and can still swim and engage with the world. …But that’s not good enough. He’s “slowed down” so, in Emanuel’s warped mind, he’s a good example of how life after 75 isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

As he puts it: “the fact is that by 75, creativity, originality, and productivity are pretty much gone for the vast, vast majority of us.”

Emanuel says it’s “uniquely American” to assume that you’re going to have a happy, healthy life right up until the very end. He calls people who think they’re going to avoid the slow decent into death “American Immortals.” He claims these immortals believe they’re going to be perfectly healthy until they’re in their 90’s and then just keel over dead one day. (I have friends I play sports with that are in late 80’s and 2 are 90’s and we all enjoy our lives.. ) How dare Government can decide it can end us.jj)

I’ve never met anyone who thinks that. We all know that the end of our lives will, more likely than not, involve years of “slowing down” and some time in a hospital bed. Most of us have watched – or helped – someone they love go through the process.

That doesn’t mean we stop fighting for every. single. precious. second.

Most of us want to spend as long as possible with the people we love. Most of us want to see and do as much as we possibly can, for as long as we possibly can. Most of us are desirous of a medical system which is constantly struggling to give us as much life as science can provide.

Unfortunately, the man who was – in large part – responsible for Barack Obama’s unpopular, rightfully despised, “signature law” is not “most of us.”

Obama-  “I reject this aspiration. I think this manic desperation to endlessly extend life is misguided and potentially destructive”

In other words: “just take a pain pill.”

Politicians Putting The Squeeze On The Elderly and Middle Class

206165_453413278032501_108773658_n

As the growth of tax revenue has slowed, states have faced tensions over whether to raise taxes or cut spending to balance their budgets as required by law.

“Rising income inequality is not just a social issue,” said Gabriel Petek, the S&P credit analyst who wrote A report for msn money.. “It presents a very significant set of challenges for the policymakers.”

The Blood Sucking Politicians at the Local Level  are blaming it on income inequality. Never mentioning it was created by Politicians and our Federal Government.  Now they want more taxes which will again decimate the Elderly and middle class.

Stagnant pay for  people has compounded the pressure on states to preserve funding for education highways and social programs.

 Their investments in education and infrastructure ??   have also fueled economic growth. ?? What!  Yet we are told they’re at risk without a strong flow of tax revenue.?? Local Governments have been given our Tax Dollars for infrastructure for 40 years or more and they have spent it on social programs to help them stay elected.

We already pay more than any country in the world for education with zero results.  And how about Obamas ,Bush, Bill Clinton and Hillary’s  Open Border policy creating more mouths to educate, house, cloth, and feed. And guess who pays! You the voter and, the old time Democrats who they have convinced must pay more tax’s to save your Social Security. Already most young people are not aware you paid into Social Security during a life time of hard work sometime at two jobs.

Hillary is the war on women says kathleen wiley  Hillary is the “War on Woman”

In Florida,  Progressive  Democrats frighten Seniors into obeying their voting instructions. And spent millions running a proven fool Charlie Christ against A successful Governor.

A List of Liberal Lies and the Truth
1. Count Every Vote– This was the mantra of the Al Gore campaign after the 2000 presidential election, when they were hand counting votes in 3 highly Democratic counties, while at the same time trying to disqualify military votes. In effect they were trying to change the rules of the election after the election had taken place, which violated federal election law. A liberal Florida Supreme Court ruled in the favor of the Gore Campaign until the U.S. Supreme Court put a stop to it. To this very day, liberals actually believe George Bush stole the election.

2. There is a vast right wing conspiracy- There is a far right wing in the Republican Party, but it is a small fringe element. However, there is a far left wing in this country and it is a large part of the main stream of the Democratic party. Remember when Hillary Clinton went on the Today Show and responded to the allegation of an affair between her husband (President Clinton) and an intern (Monica Lewinsky) as untrue and blamed it on a Right Wing Conspiracy? Over the past ten years Tom Daschle, Nancy Pelosi, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Al Gore, Mario Cuomo, Richard Gephardt and Jesse Jackson have been the loudest and most influential voices in the Democratic party. Are any of these people Moderates? Also please note, there is a liberal bias in the media. You might make the argument that there is a vast left wing conspiracy.

Hillary more of the same

3. This is a tax break for the rich- This is class warfare at it’s finest. If a person earning $40,000 a year gets a 10% tax reduction and a person earning $1,000,000 per year gets a 1% tax reduction- the person earning $1,000,000 will get a much greater tax break. Tom Daschle and Richard Gephardt once stood next to a car in front of the Capital Building holding up a muffler. They made a statement that a proposed George Bush tax cut would allow the rich to buy a new car and the average American to buy a muffler. This is a strategy Democrats use on every Republican proposed tax cut. They stop everyone from getting a reduction in their taxes by using class warfare. Please note, tax reductions are not an entitlement program.

4. There is no liberal bias in the media- For close to 50 years the news in America was controlled by ABC, NBC and CBS. In the last 20 years CNN came on to the scene. This is pretty much comparable to the BBC in Europe and AL Jazzera in the Arab world today. It was in the last 6 years when Fox News and other cable news networks were born to give a more balanced approach to news analysis. However, if you look at the major networks today, they are still run by the left. . In print media there is the Los Angeles Times in California, The New York Times in New York and The Atlanta Journal Constitution in Georgia. These have been the major newspapers in our most populous cities for many years and their reporting has a liberal bias.

5. Republicans want to cut school lunch programs- This was the attack leveled by Democrats against the Republicans during a budget battle in 1995. Democrats proposed a double digit increase in funding for school lunch programs, while Republican proposed a more modest increase. To put this in perspective, you must ask this question. How many people get a double digit increase in their pay each year? Democrats called the Republican proposal a cut and charged they wanted to starve children, because the proposal was less than what Democrats proposed. Please note, the Republican proposal called for an increase in funding. The media printed the story, never challenging it, even though it was not true. This became famous for when does an increase become a cut- only in Washington DC.

6. I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Monica Lewinsky- We all know the truth here. There is nothing to be added- except that it was not a vast right wing conspiracy.

7. Republicans are mean spirited and want to throw the poor out on the street- This was a charge leveled by Democrats against Republicans when they proposed time limits for receiving welfare. Polls show that the majority of Americans believe in time restrictions for welfare recipients. Republicans know that to escape poverty it takes education, hard work and discipline. The greatness of this country rests in its freedom and that within one generation a person can rise from poverty to obtain great wealth. Allowing endless dependency on an entitlement program has trapped many in poverty. Why would Democrats want to keep anyone dependent on an entitlement program like welfare?      How many people on welfare vote Republican?  shocked

8. I support the military- It has been well documented that when it comes to voting for military funding- liberals would much rather spend money on social programs. First you must understand their rational. Approximately 10% of the population in the United States is poor, which is about 30 million Americans. There are approximately one million Americans serving in the military. If only 1 in 5 of the poor vote, that equals about six million votes as compared to one million votes from the military. There are two relevant questions here. What percent of the poor vote Republican? How close was the 2000 Presidential Election? This leads directly to the answer of why would liberals rather appropriate money to social programs than to the defense of our country. Please note, the defense of our country is a primary, if not the primary responsibility of our government. If we don’t protect the country, we may not have a country or our freedom.

9. Privatizing social security is risky. Contribute $300 a month to Social Security and you may get $1,800 a month when you retire. Sound like a good deal? There was a story about Dick Gephardt’s mother living on Social Security and having numerous checks she had written returned for insufficient funds. Gephardt politicized the event by stating that this was an example of why Social Security should not be privatized, because if it were not for Social Security his mother would have been much worse off.

Please note that the S & P 500 has returned more than 10% over it’s lifetime. Therefore- if you invested $300 a month in an S & P 500 mutual fund for 40 years at the end of that time (enter these numbers into any compound interest calculator) you would have approximately 2 million dollars (Please note that these are conservative numbers). This means you could withdraw almost $200,000 or 10 percent a year and never exhaust your money. Break that down and it is $20, 000 a month. Social Security does not sound so good any longer.

Please be advised that the key to obtaining wealth is systematically investing for the long term. There is no quick sure fire scheme to getting rich. If Gephardt’s mother had been investing in mutual funds her entire life instead of Social Security- she would have been much better off at the present. Also, please be advised that privatizing Social Security helps the poor the more than anyone. The rich invest money in 401K plans. The poor, the clerk at a convenience store or a customer service representative doesn’t have excess funds to invest and so their only investment vehicle is Social Security.

10. Trickle down economics does not work– Money in the hands of people stimulates the economy, whether they are rich or poor. The problem- how to you put money in the hands of the poor? Transfer of more wealth from the rich to the poor each year? This would only create greater dependency on entitlements and give lessen the incentive to achieve. Give the poor greater tax cuts? You can only cut the taxes for the poor by so much, because they don’t pay much in taxes.

When Tom Daschle said that the result of a proposed Bush tax cut would mean that a rich person would be able to buy a new car, without realizing it, he proved the theory of Trickle Down Economics. The person selling that car would generate income that he would otherwise not have had. Please note that if that person sells enough cars, he will gain wealth. If tax rates in this county were at 75% what would happen to the economy? The answer is that no one would have money to spend on anything except housing and food. The result would be that businesses everywhere would fail, because no one would have money to buy clothes, electronics, entertainment, repairs for their homes or cars, go on vacation….. If they did buy such things, they would have to go in to debt to do so. How would this help the working class or the poor? Please note the average taxpayer, pays roughly 50% of their income in taxes.

liberals are for tax hikes and against tax cuts. The only thing that helps the working class is a strong economy. It gives the average worker more freedom and more bargaining power. When the financial sector was booming from 1987 through 1989, workers were getting bonuses, overtime and stock options. When the financial sector suffered a downturn in 1990, it trickled down. There were no more bonuses, overtime, stock options and there were layoffs.

Dr. David Janda explains rationing

Dr. Janda was the keynote speaker at a congressional dinner at the Capitol Building in Washington on Friday, July 17, 2010. As he began his prepared speech, he said, “It should be clear that the same warning notice must be placed on the Obamacare Plan as on a pack of cigarettes: Consuming this product will be hazardous to your health.””The underlying method of cutting costs throughout the plan is based on rationing and denying care.

The plan’s method is the most inhumane and unethical approach to cutting costs I can imagine as a physician.”

The rationing of care is implemented through the National Health Care Board according to this plan. This illustrious board ‘will approve or reject treatment based on the cost per treatment divided by the number of years the patient will benefit from the treatment.’ Translation—if you are over 65 or have been recently diagnosed as having an advanced for of cardiac disease or aggressive cancer, dream on if you think you will get treated. Pick out your coffin. Dr. Janda’s words, not mine.

Oh—you think this could never happen? Sorry…this is the same model they use in Britain

large group we wont take it any moreToday hospitals and health care facilities are required to ask patients if they have a living will or lose government funding! The question is proposed in such a way to create pressure on patients so that they think it is something good, desirable and necessary. “Do you know that you have a right in the state of Minnesota to possess a living will??        smiley-shocked028

Veterans Scandal is parallel to Adm. treatment of the aged by rationing health care.

the forgotten ones

The Veterans Scandal is parallel to this Administrations treatment of the aged by rationing in the healthcare bill. The reason they’re being denied treatment boils down to one thing – money.

There is a distinct possibility that the President of the United States was raised within a household where mass murder of civilians was not considered a crime against humanity. . Dunham Soetoro moved with her seven-year old son to Jakarta to be with her husband , Indonesian Army Colonel Lolo Soetoro – a hit man for the CIA-installed Suharto regime President Obama’s step-father, Lolo Soetoro, was a colonel in the Indonesian armed forces. Lolo Soetoro took part, in a coup with the net total of Indonesians killed ranging from 250,000 to 1 million. President Obama’s mother arrived in Indonesia to join Soetoro with young Barack Obama, Jr. (This is the environment that Obama’s mother chose to raise her son )

The Land of the Free is now governed by an out-of-control egomaniac, neither bolstered by managerial competence nor hindered by the legislature’s institutional prerogatives. In the Home of the Brave, half of Congress cheers Obama’s unconstitutional behavior, while the other half grumbles and then meekly carpet-bombs his path with white flags.

The American people have been betrayed — both by Obama and the Democrats, whose lust for control intensifies daily, and by Republican leaders in Washington, whose cowardice and defeatism have turned their guts and spines into tapioca.

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.

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 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.

Obama Has Set His Eye On The Oldest and Sickest Denying Them Costly Medical Care?

If this dire end-of-life scenario sounds too awful to be possible, that is only because the reality of Obamacare has not been sufficiently reported

obamacare now you know whats in itWhy Obamacare could result in the early deaths of millions of baby boomers

 Imagine lying in some government-run hospital, hospice or nursing home many years from now. Imagine languishing unattended for days in soiled sheets, suffering from hunger and thirst, covered with bed sores, your flesh aboil with untreated infections.

Imagine living in fear of resentful, underpaid health aides who take out their anger on you and abuse you. And imagine spending your final moments on earth in the company of a government health care worker with a syringe, who injects you with a lethal cocktail.

Do you find this hard to imagine? You should. In any civilized country, such things should not happen – ever. But President Obama’s health care proposals have the very real potential to turn this nightmare into a reality for many Americans, according to an in-depth investigation reported in the August edition of Whistleblower magazine, titled “MEDICAL MURDER: Why Obamacare could result in the early deaths of millions of baby boomers.”

Especially vulnerable are the 80 million baby boomers born between 1946 and 1964. “If you belong to that group, take note,” says Richard Poe, author of the August cover story. “Your generation has been targeted for a program of age-based medical rationing such as our country has never before experienced.”

Adds Whistleblower editor David Kupelian, “If this dire end-of-life scenario sounds too awful to be possible, that is only because the reality of Obamacare has not been sufficiently reported. For this is not a fantasy – it is what is already occurring in other ‘civilized’ nations, including Canada and Britain, that have adopted the same government-run system.”

For instance, the cover story, “Medical Murder,” documents how British seniors, under a government-run system, “are routinely denied treatment for cancer, heart disease and other deadly illnesses,” many dying “in filthy, overcrowded hospitals or nursing homes, rife with pestilence, including the deadly, antibiotic-resistant superbugs.” Numerous horror stories of needed medical care intentionally denied reveal the stark reality of government-run health care worldwide.

To a small degree, Obamacare’s ominous implications are starting to leak out. Here’s how columnist Charlotte Allen explained it recently in the Los Angeles Times:

In looking for a way to fund healthcare, Obama has set his eye on the oldest and sickest. You see, according to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, about 30 percent of Medicare spending – nearly $100 billion annually – goes to care for patients during their last year of life. What if there were no ‘last year of life,’ the president seems to be asking. … Why not save billions of dollars by killing off our own unproductive oldsters and terminal patients, or – since we aren’t likely to do that outright in this, the 21st century – why not simply ensure that they die faster by denying them costly medical care? The savings could then subsidize care for the younger and healthier.

And for those who have been paying close attention,** Obama himself has ever-so-gently hinted at his true intentions. At a town hall event in June televised by ABC News, Obama cited the case of his grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, who died on the eve of his election, suggesting one way to cut medical costs would be to stop expensive procedures on people about to die.

Families, Obama said, need better information so they don’t approve “additional tests or additional drugs that the evidence shows is not necessarily going to improve care.”

Maybe you’re better off not having the surgery, but taking the painkiller,” the president offered. (death by morphine injection)

Obama was slightly more explicit in a May 3 interview with the New York Times, when he said there ought to be a national “conversation” over whether “sort of in the aggregate, society making those decisions to give my grandmother, or everybody else’s aging grandparents or parents, a hip replacement when they’re terminally ill is a sustainable model.” Such decisions, added Obama, shouldn’t be left to patients or their relatives, but to a “group” of “doctors, scientists, ethicists” who are not part of “normal political channels.” smiley-shocked028

One such elite medical decision-maker would be Obama’s special adviser for health policy, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, brother of Rahm Emanuel. He’s a longtime advocate of “age-weighted medical rationing” – meaning, the older you are, the less care you get, as in Britain. But what about the Hippocratic Oath, you might ask, the sacred vow doctors have always taken to do all they can to heal their patients? As Whistleblower documents, Emanuel advises doctors to stop taking that oath so literally, and instead to be “prudent” in assessing how much time, effort and money each patient is worth, for the greater good of society.

Moreover, as “MEDICAL MURDER” reports, a bill being pushed hard by Sen. Jay Rockefeller, chairman of the Senate Finance Subcommittee on Health Care, will take from Congress all authority over federal health spending and decree that such decisions in the future would be made by a secretive committee of “experts” modeled after – are you ready? – the Federal Reserve Board.

The Culture of Death: The Assault on the elderly

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.

Jon Christian Ryter       2010

Dr. Janda was the keynote speaker at a congressional dinner at the Capitol Building in Washington on Friday, July 17, 2010. As he began his prepared speech, he said, “It should be clear that the same warning notice must be placed on the Obamacare Plan as on a pack of cigarettes: Consuming this product will be hazardous to your health.”

“The underlying method of cutting costs throughout the plan is based on rationing and denying care. There is no focus on preventative health care needs whatever. The plan’s method is the most inhumane and unethical approach to cutting costs I can imagine as a physician.”

The rationing of care is implemented through the National Health Care Board according to this plan. This illustrious board ‘will approve or reject treatment based on the cost per treatment divided by the number of years the patient will benefit from the treatment.’ Translation—if you are over 65 or have been recently diagnosed as having an advanced for of cardiac disease or aggressive cancer, dream on if you think you will get treated. Pick out your coffin. Dr. Janda’s words, not mine.

Oh—you think this could never happen? Sorry…this is the same model they use in Britain.

[Obamacare] mandates that there will be little or no advanced treatments to be available in the future. [The plan] creates the Federal Coordinating Council for Comparative Effective Research, the purpose of which is to “slow the development of new medications and technologies in order to reduce costs.” The plan also that doctors will be forced to tolerate “oversight” from the federal medical bureaucracy. Their work ethics (both doctors and hospitals) will be reviewed by the National Coordinator for Health Information and Technology.

The “Coordinator” will “…monitor treatments being delivered to make sure doctors and hospitals are strictly following government guidelines that are deemed appropriate.” The guidelines continue, “…Doctors and hospitals not adhering to guidelines will face penalties.” According to those he has spoken to in Congress, Dr. Janda noted, the penalties could include large, six figure fines and possible imprisonment.”

According to the Obamacare Plan, Dr. Janda noted, “…if your doctor saves your life, you might have to go to prison to see your doctor for follow-up appointments.”

Oh…remember the Obama rhetoric about keeping your current coverage and opting out of Obamacare? Wrong. Section 102 of Obamacare: “Protecting the Choice to Keep Current Coverage” mandates that it will be illegal to keep your private coverage if your work status changes—if you lose or change your job; retire from your job and become a senior…or, graduate from college and get your first job. Because the moment you come off mom and dad’s private insurance, you go on Obamacare.

But don’t worry…as long as you are not a “double dipper,” you’re okay. So, even though your healthcare will have deteriorated into something worse than third world healthcare, at least Big Brother won’t be trying to euthanize you. Euthanasia will be reserved for the elderly—those taking advantage of Big Brother’s largess by enjoying the “world’s best healthcare” and living on the taxpayer dole (i.e., Social Security—which the recipient paid into from 35 to 50 years). 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, with the federal government.

By the way…Barack Hussein Obama was elected by millions of elderly voters who will be delivered to the euthanasia centers of America as the Federal Coordinating Council reports that, for the first time,health costs under Obamacare are actually projected to decline. Why 2013 instead of this year or next year? Obama needed to make sure that the first euthanasia victims to face death by morphine injection in America’s hospitals and hospices don’t happen until after the Election of 2012. And, as grandma is being trucked off to the hospice, Obama will be making his second inaugural address.

Hillary is the war on women says kathleen wiley Hillary more of the same and more.

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 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.

 

 

 

Ending the lives of Social Security recipients before they become a financial drain

large group we wont take it any moreIt’s the reality of Obamacare which was NOT enacted to guarantee medical care for all Americans. OBAMACARE is the pressure valve to make sure the program never goes bankrupt by ending the lives of Social Security recipients before they become a financial drain on the Old Age benefits system by denying them medical care. The Independent Payment Advisory Board whose job it is to ration medical services.

Obamacare went into effect. On Dec. 30, 2010, the Wall Street Journal noted that “…for the first time, an unelected group will be empowered to limit health spending for the vulnerable elderly.” While it was believed that the Death Board would not be empowered to deny lifesaving procedures to the elderly before Jan. 1, 2013, it has already begun—at least the horror stories now surfacing make it appears that way.

I first encountered the Obama Death Board on Aug. 30, 2009, a full half year before Obamacare was enacted. It was buried in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009—the Obama stimulus bill. It was adroitly concealed under the boring name of the Federal Coordinating Council for Comparative Research (yawn). The bill said its mandate was to “…assist the agencies of the federal government including HHS and the Dept. of Veterans Affairs…to coordinate comparative effectiveness and related health services research…The Council will consider the needs of the population served by federal programs.” (yawn)

In reality, the sole job of the Federal Coordinating Council, whose members were quickly selected by Barack Obama within a week of the law passing was to create the formula for rationing healthcare to seniors and to other Social Security recipients who were disabled and, like the elderly, were deemed to be “double-dippers”—receiving Social Security benefits and were on Medicare.

On March 21, 2011, I found a video recorded on Oct. 13, 2010, less than 3 weeks before the 2010 Midterm Election that was made by Dr. David Janda concerning the rationing that was going to take place beginning on Jan. 1, 2013. Dr. Janda first addressed the Obamacare warning as the keynote speaker at a congressional dinner in the Capitol building on July 17, 2010. He began his speech by saying, “It should be clear that the same warning notice must be placed on the Obamacare Plan as on a pack of cigarettes: consuming this product will be hazardous to your health.” (No yawns here.)

“The underlying method of cutting costs throughout the plan is based on rationing and denying care. There is no focus on preventative health care needs whatsoever The . plan’s method is the most inhumane and unethical approach to cutting costs I can imagine as a physician.” Click on this sentence to visit Dr. Janda’s March 21, 2011 political rally speech.

In the speech, he reiterates that a National Coordinator for Health Information Technology will ultimately be responsible for implementing the guidelines created by the the Federal Coordinating Council. The National Coordinator (or those working for him) will “…determine treatment at the time and place of care.” That means, Dr. Janda said, “…when your physician walks into your hospital room, his nurse or physician’s assistant [PA] will be carrying a small hand-held computer. As the doctor verbally tells you his prognosis, she will be typing that data into the computer…” and while the doctor chit-chats with you, someone at the other end of that computer terminal is deciding whether you live or die based not on your medical needs, but rather, if its profitable for the government to let you continue to live by gauging the cost of the procedure (and the other monetary factors in the Social Security database) with your life expectancy combined with your economic value to the community-at-large.

the forgotten onesOnce you pass 75, unless you’re a politician, a relative of a politician or a major political donor (a rich guy), with rare exceptions, you will have virtually no economic value to community, and you will be denied medical care. In some cases, if expensive medications are the only thing keeping you alive, you may find youself on an aspirin regime instead. The core objective of the Death Board is not to save the patient—it’s to save government by curbing the number of people who outlive the actuarial mortality tables, and who continues to receive retirement income benefits their government believes they don’t deserve because the actuarial statistics from which those benefits were computed, predicted they should be dead by now.

Until Obamacare, America was the only nation smart enough to avoid the legal euthanasia devise of government.

Obamacare

is Barack Obama’s, Nancy Pelosi’s, Harry Reid’s—and the 2007-11 Democratic super majority’s—toxic program to correct the national mortality rate in order to save Social Security. You can’t convince me that the Democrats (the only ones with full access to the text of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010) didn’t know that Obamacare, which guarantees people with preexisting conditions health coverage, would also ration healthcare to the elderly, and deny lifesaving procedures and medications to those the social progressives viewed as a financial drain on society. But as Americans prayed that the Supreme Court would rule Obamacare unconstitutional, the Obama Administration decided to begin implementing it —through Medicare. That way, even if the Supreme Court had ruled Obamacare unconstitutional, Medicare will do the housecleaning Obamacare, without modification, would not be able to do.

Reid, Pelosi and then White House pit bull Rahm Emanuel (whose brother heads the Independent Payment Authority Board) wisely funded the National Coordinator for Health Information with $105,464,000,000.00 (that’s billions) that was surreptitiously buried in Obamacare—just in case. I guess that’s why Pelosi said, “Let’s hurry up and enact this so we can see what’s in it.” But, what the American people wouldn’t see in Obamcare was the Death Board, enacted a year earlier.

Seniors were being told by their Medicare primary care physicians in January and February, 2012 to prepare for the fact that specific procedures and, in some cases, expensive lifesaving medications will no longer be available to them next year. In many cases seniors, who were trying to put off life-threatening procedures until they were absolutely essential since many of the operations were life threatening, began having those lifesaving procedures in 2012 instread of gambling on their being available to them in 2013. In some cases, it appears, seniors this year are being told the procedures they need are now suddenly not available because although they may been lifesaving, they are suddenly being viewed as “elective” surgeries because the patient, not the doctor, is requesting it.

Today, due to questions of whether or not medical procedures on those 75 years of age or older are available to seniors who need them to prolong their lives are spreading like a wildfire in a drought, HHS Director Kathleen Sebelius insists that the “rumors” that the HHS will ration healthcare to the elderly is false.

Yet, a large percentage of practicing physicians (many of whom plan to retire rather than participate in Obamacare) insist they have already been informed by the government that it will; and that when the government denies benefits, that patient may not be treated by any healthcare practitioner—which is currently what happens in Canada.

1950s heart throb pop Singer Pat Boone, best known hits like “Love Letters in the Sand,” and “Ain’t That A Shame” is working closely with Jim Martin of 60 Plus Association fighting the implementation of Obamacare. In a recent TV commercial, Boone said “…the IPAB will operate in secret, and will have vast powers to reach into our lives, and will have the final, irrefutable say on Medicare policy,” adding that the IPAB Board “…can ration care and deny certain Medicare treatments.” The IPAB will decide “…whether you get care such as dialysis or cancer therapy..” or cardiac bypasses or angioplasty. Boone noted that the IPAB will make all of the health care decisions over 300 million Americans.

If they are not now, seniors will find themselves being denied lifesaving procedures—.

On June 17, 2012, I received an email from a 67-year old male (whom I will call “Henry” [not his real name] who claims he discovered that Medicare threw him under the bus. It may or may not be factually true although the content is theoretically correct.The email begins:

Forget about getting to age 75. This exact thing happened to me this morning…here in Connecticut. I was scheduled for a cardiolite stress test. (This is a treadmill stress test where, during the process, they inject nuclear dye into your blood stream and then put you in a CTscan or something similar and take pictures of your heart…I have had three of these tests in the past 12 years due to blocked arteries discovered in 2000. They use the test to determine if I need a roto router or a bypass operation.

So, I arrive at the hospital at 8 a.m. this morning. I’m in process of checking in at Cardiology and the lady says that my appointment has been canceled. She makes a call and speaks with someone and hands me the phone. It is a nurse in cardiology who says my medical coverage denied the procedure. I said it was a routine part of my heart maintenance, and it was ordered by my primary care physician, with the approval of my cardiologist who is the head of Cardiology—which is right where I was standing. She says, Yes, but we were denied our request.  So, Henry said, “I have Medicare, so what is my back-up insurance doing denying anything?” Then the bombshell dropped. She said it was the Medicare Medical Board that denied the procedure.

I have personal knowledge of instances with extended family members who have experienced, in part, what Henry claims he experienced. Early this year, two family members were told that “…within a few months Medicare will not pay for this procedure for you.” The ramifications of stories about Medicare patients being denied tests and procedures their doctors felt were necessary to prolong their life are too serious to ignore even if those needed procedures are future events. Even discounting 85% of the rumors as exaggerations, there is still 15% that can’t be ignored. Even 1% can’t be ignored—particularly if, within that 1% is a family member you love.
