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?

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).

 

 

 

 

ObamaCare train wreck has been and is being allowed to happen?

imagesWhat if this spectacular slow motion ObamaCare train wreck has been and is being allowed to happen so that what’s going on around the bend from the fiery crash site gets little attention, from the public, from the media or from Congressional investigators? Think about it, friends.

How could Barack Obama and his celebrated team of incredibly proficient, plugged in techies – the team that twice got him elected – be behind the utterly disastrous launch of the ObamaCare online storefront, healthcare.gov – arguably the biggest website failure in history?

How could so much money have been spent to produce such a problem-plagued site that apparently was doomed in its developmental confusion? And how to fix this monumental mess, well, there doesn’t seem to be any clear plan…other than hope. And now we learn that many, if not most, of the people actually signing up for ObamaCare through the website are enrolling in Medicaid, not signing up for private insurance policies they pay for, but adding their names onto government rolls – a financial drain on the system, not contributing to it.

And many, if not most of those who are enrolling in private plans are finding their insurance premiums, deductibles and co-pays unaffordabley high. Plus, many hundreds of thousands, if not millions of Americans on individual plans are losing their coverage

male-crying-100100961 Every day we learn of massive new policy losses with company after company in state after state. Private health insurance is quickly becoming the endangered species conservatives have been warning about for years. So, the ObamaCare train continues to run off the rails, car after car exploding and burning. And our focus continues to be on this unfolding disaster, this spectacular, colossal failure. But is it…is it really a “failure”? Or is this train wreck a shocking success?

A success in crushing the market-based health insurance industry, turning private insurance companies into government allies and crony accessories to a culture of dependency, forcing millions of Americans into a scary health care void.

shovelreadyThen you’ve got all the seniors being robbed of Medicare benefits and Medicare-available doctors. In other words, ObamaCare is a wrecking ball, a virus spreading through and debilitating the system, a train wreck that wrecking health care.Meanwhile – and here’s the really shocking part – tax dollars, insurance industry dollars, foundation dollars – tons of money – is flowing into a vast network of non-profits and community-based organizations that are building a massive and dynamic database of government dependents in order to fundamentally change America.

Talk about the ultimate community organizer enterprise – infiltrated by, if not run by, Obama activists, former campaign operatives, former White House insiders, advisors and advocates for social justice and wealth redistribution.

We’ve identified a nationwide network of Obama supporters, sycophants and surrogates that’s growing bigger, stronger, more influential every day as they lay the groundwork for the successor to the current version of ObamaCare – the son of ObamaCare. That will be even more powerful and politically connected and formidable

. When this ObamaCare train wreck is finally and totally derailed, and voluntary ObamaCare signups are acknowledged to be a failure, then we’ll see auto-enrollment – automatic signups of all sorts of people will become a necessity in order to salvage what’s left of a shattered system.

Yes, ObamaCare in its current form is a disaster –

me lie.bmp I just changed the promise.bmp smallerpossibly purposeful, certainly useful to the community organizer of all community organizers and his expanding political army. An army of darkness forming and fortifying just around the bend from the spectacular ObamaCare train wreck at which almost everyone is gawking…almost everyone. –

COMMENTS:

As soon as this is declared a failure, the single payer government run plan will be all that is available. Control health care and the population is controlled.

Frances Maddox Don Matthews

Power, Power and more POWER……the BULLYING WILL GET WORSE…my way or the highway. GANGSTER TACTICS learned in Chicago and taught by professionals, many of whom are BHO advisors and appointed CZARS. Birds of a feather! Even now a classmate of the FIRST LADY on the web-site team. Just wondering, did Michelle go to school with Valarie? And is there such an ALUMNI as A WHITE one from Princeton

Lori Servies

Yeah, I have been preaching this for the past two years . . . but who is gonna listen to me, a simple woman from the South . . . #BarryCare is NOT a failure . . . it is accomplishing exactly what they have intended it to and it may take awhile for all of those implications to surface . . .

Dr.Roy Lori Servies

The communist, homosexual, muslim terrorist occupied white house needs to be dealt with I would pray the rest of this country wakes up before its to late. the reason he and the democratic party is pushing Obama care is not to provide affordable health care, but a attempt to castrate the constitution and the bill of rights to give to the Executive Branch of government more power and control.

Obama care relinquishes many of our 10th amendment rights, it chips away at the 2nd amendment and it also infringes on the 4th and 5th amendment. doctors are not to inquirer before treatment if you own guns, but if you do and if you been proscribed anti depressant or pain medication you are no longer able to own guns. in like manner if you have been diagnosed with ADHD, Depression, anxiety attacks, ever had a brain injury or ptsd or use marijuana regardless if its legal in the state you live you are no longer able to own or possess firearms. your guns can be taken from you without a search warrant and with out due process and criminal charges filed on you. threw this health care bill you are going to be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.
all this bill dose is targets veterans and the citizenry to control them through the powers the government has massed to its self for power and control to strip you from your right to chose what is best for yourself. may God bless us all

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?

 

Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) released his annual Wastebook this past week

 obama_yourpayingforit.jpg 2222222222   Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) released his annual Waste Book  this past week It contains a laundry list of doozies. The U.S. government’s gold-plating operations included $190,000 to study compost digested by worms, $297 million for the purchase of an unused mega blimp, and $1 million on a Virginia bus stop where only 15 people can huddle under a half-baked roof. These questionable (read: absurd) expenditures only represent the tip of the iceberg.

Just consider the following:

The Speaker of the House currently receives an annual salary of $223,500, and will receive a payment of roughly that amount, depending on the years of service, for life. An annual payment of this magnitude amounts to about five times the average annual wage in the United States. But that’s not all.

 

For those who have had different positions in Congress, their retirements can be augmented. For example, Nancy Pelosi will not receive $223,500 for life, but roughly double that. Why? Because she is a member of Congress, currently the House of Representatives’ Minority Leader, and a retired Speaker of the House. For purposes of computing retirement pay, Congress adds and accumulates. They do not net.

In addition to supporting members of Congress and civil servants, U.S. taxpayers support welfare recipients. And they support them lavishly, too. Hawaii, Massachusetts, and D.C. residents receive sizeable welfare payments (read: salaries). Indeed,

The magnitude of these Welfare Payments exceeds the average salary of an American teacher, As well as a soldier deployed in Afghanistan, by at least $10,000 per year.

soldierssoldiers 2The public can forget all the clap-trap they are hearing about austerity. Indeed, a fairly dull knife could cut billions of dollars from the U.S. government’s largess.

The president and his queen are the epitome of corruption and greed. They talk about “caring for the poor” while spending piles of other people’s money on their celebrity parties.This, coming from an administration whose most recent political platform focuses on income inequalitySome Americans are more equal than others, I guess.
