IMPORTANT - Obama Care will affect everybody
- to date this draconian bill has not been explained: taxes, advisory
board (determining if you get treatment), pre-existing conditions - Medicare
cuts to fund it - keeping your own doctor - Medicare Cuts - etc. Please
bookmark or Copy articles (more to come). These will answer all your questions/concerns.
I have spent an inordinate amount of time reading thousands of pages (various
reports - the bill - arguments etc) having to do with Obama Care.
Nothing you've been told by the media or politicians bears any resemblance
to the intricacies of this massive boondoggle. As every citizen will be
subject to this it behooves you (get a folder) and COPY articles I send,
as YOU most definitely will have have many questions.
You'll have a hard time getting any coherent answers. I made sure
that I weeded through all the BS and chose only those that are most needful
It's already started (massive increases) - this am 'news' reported that
Blue Cross - Blue Shield (Calif) were raising their PREMIUMS by 20%.
There are approx 23 new taxes in Obama Care. This has all been kept under
wraps until after the election.
It appears that FEW bothered reading this/ including the President -
Nancy Pelosi (their own admission) nor Max Baucus - Key Player,
Chairman of Senate Finance - 'author' of Senate Bill .
Senator Baucus when asked if he'd read the bill: " It's a waste of
time for me to read the Health Care Bill - we hire experts to do
President Obama told us that 'if we thought it was a TAX - then
obviously we didn't know the law". Supreme Court ruled it a TAX.
Thought: With special interests writing the bill and legislators not
bothering to read it - we have, taxation without representation.
Baucus---he's the darling of Big Pharma - hospitals - insurance and
health industry. They are his major contributors.
Convenient: Special interests wrote this bill - got numerous special
favors ($). Liz Fowler - aid to Senator Baucus for several yrs -
cashed out to run the lobbying for Wellpoint - (major architect) our
nation's largest insurer. In fact all of Senator Baucus former staff
became lobbyists for large corporations.
Baucus ( he was mere rubber stamp) - hired Fowler (she was assigned)
to write the bill. The bill won backing from from Big Pharma - Mfg of
America - AMA- American Hospital Association.
It was (is) a porkfest for special interests. Hedge Fund
honcho Larry Robb told a crowd at prominent Sohn Investment
conference to buy hospital stocks.
In all approx 5,300 lobbyists (paid $1.1 billion) lobbied on behalf
of 1,750 corporate clients.
Bloomberg Gov Study found that insurers would lose out on a
trillion+ in revenues if Obama Care was struck down by Supreme
Court. Most of this trillion+ comes from federal subsidies created
by Obama Care.
President Clinton speaking ( paid $250,00) to health care industry (
insurers and providers) endorsing Obama Care was told, "You're
preaching to the saved".
The drug industry makes out best of all - they spent close to 1/2
billion on lobbying. Former (who else?) La Representative Billy
Tauzin is the President of PhRMA - worked closely with Baucus
Legislation (state or federal) is written by industry
lobbyists - introduced and approved by elected officials.
KEY - this is where Baucus and Tarzin played a big role: Prohibited
Medicare from negotiating prices with drug companies /
re-importation of drugs from Canada - Japan; who sell the SAME drugs
as those sold in USA/ approx six times cheaper.
They guaranteed that private insurance companies - NOT Medicare, would
administer the drug benefit programs - thus dramatically increasing the
cost of medicine for Seniors.
To date in the USA/ who is applauded by Washington as being a Super Power
- has multitudes of citizens who cannot afford to go to a doctor ( as
in days of old - long forgotten) or AFFORD obscene cost of needed medications.
Washington politicians who VOTED themselves exempt from this 'great bill'
don't have to worry about medications. They ( numerous plans to choose
from) get FREE or minimal cost ( $10.00) medicine.
They also get free care at Bethesda / National Institute of Health ( life
long health care). Children ( 26 is NOT a child) up until age 26 will
be covered. This benefits legislators - corporate honchos who have gold
card insurance while their 'kids' are in college. While in session legislators
have a fully equipped clinic on site to see to their every need.
Recall that this Health Bill was supposed to be 'transparent' - that is
was supposed to be shown on C-Span and everybody would be at the table.
This according to the President. None of it happened. Everything was done
behind closed doors. Dozens and dozens (NOT shown by media) of doctors
and nurses showed up at the Senator Baucus Committee Hearing.
He had them ARRESTED! They were endorsing Kucinich/ Conyers
Single Payer - Medicare for All (already set up - what Obama
campaigned on '08) 27 pages.
It never got the light of day - the money boys/ Insurance - Big Pharma
- Hospitals - Medical Devices were not in the picture.
Death Panel..a matter of semantics: I did read and wrote about Obama Care
( Obama applauds this label - it has his name on it).
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel was hired on as an adviser ( brother of former chief
of staff Rahm). Ezeckiel has a strange outlook on the sacredness of life
The treatment of people is seen as an 'investment - their contribution
to society'. Opinion: I took this to mean that when worker-bees had exhausted
their working years - worn out from years of labor; they are
no longer usual but a burden (cost wise) to society.
According to a GREAT video (will send later) explaining in detail the
hidden things in Obama Care - a 15 member (rationing) advisory (Sec 3407)
board, appointed by the President (no medical personal) - with Dr. Emanuel's
input- sees age 55 as the drop off point for extraordinary care.
Dr. Emanuel says that 'allocation by age is not discrimination in that
they are (medically) treated differently (limited treatment) because they
already had more life. Treatment should be reserved to those who are contributing
members of society.'
As you can see; Truth becomes opinion. This doesn't hold out much hope
for those born handicapped or those suffering mental disease. While treatment
(in video) is withheld (Oregon) from a cancer victim - money is available
for assisted suicide. Anybody recall Soylent Green?
It got lost in the shuffle of the KOCH brothers - but the FIRST Tea Party
activists/ were attempting to call attention to Obama Care/ Government
controlling all aspects of a people's health care - and dying. The media
soon made short shift of them - MOCKERY is a better weapon than exhaustive
This 15 member 'advisory committee' will determine cost of
treatments vs age of patient. Age Formula.
When you lose the reverence for one part of life - you lose it for
all. Wisdom comes with age. These are the holders of the past - the
teachers to the young. What message is given when we put a price tag
on a suffering or dying citizen?
What message is given when seniors are maligned and attacked (not bankers
- not corporate robber barons) because of Social Security - Medicare?
Not the hucksters - hedge fund managers (pay 14% tax) political
hacks (sold us off) - and corrupt bankers (bailed out in the trillions).
Folks lost their homes/ jobs/ investments - everyday folks. And so an
unelected board of strangers (HHS) is given the power to erase them.
Citizens who fought our wars ( not plutocrats) built our cities - our
ships - taught our children - our highways - nurses - police- firefighters-
sent us into space - ran our small town shops (before mega stores of slave
wage junk destroyed them) -engineers - carpenters - plumbers - iron workers
- steel workers / all written off because 'they've lived long enough'!
EXEMPT from these draconian policies are the hucksters - the bankers -
the corrupt politicians (shills for corporate lobbyists)-hedge fund managers
-Supreme Court (work from Oct-May- retire with full pay) -Defense- State
-Executive Office -(including all those who've retired with lifelong taxpayer
subsidized health care) .....It's only the worker bees who are being ERASED.
You will want to bookmark/COPY this as it answers many questions you'll
have - exposes the MYTHS. You will certainly want to see the COSTS to
you/family. Gasp. I couldn't help thinking in a Right to Work for Less
country - FEW will be able to afford Obama Care......jm
Sausage Making - I was disgusted that nobody; not the
President - Sen Baucus- Nancy Pelosi ("we have to pass the bill to
see what's in it") read the bill let alone explain it to
How will Obama Care drastically affect their lives. I
DID read it and weeded through the mish mash of legal mumbo jumbo so
that the ordinary person can understand it. Here's what you weren't
told. PS the software for these exchanges has yet to be done.
