The Revenge of Death Panels against Sarah Palin

Demonize Sarah Palin and pay doctors to talk to people about “end of life” care. NPR is the master at promoting the government’s endgame. Here’s how you do hardcore government propaganda: “Medicare Says Doctors Should Get Paid To Discuss End-Of-Life Issues.” In this case, the propagandist is NPR. Your tax dollars at works, along with donations from Liberals and organizations like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Remember so-called death panels? When Congress debated the Affordable Read more […]

Medicare Is Rotting into a Rationing System

With medical expenses going up, how could it possibly become anything else but a rationing system? Reading the Washington Examiner story, “Medicare’s midlife crisis: Catastrophic finances pit doctors against patients,” I was reminded of all the promises that have been made about Medicare. These promises could not possibly be sustained. George W. Bush made promises in 2003 when he expanded Medicare. CNN reported, High on the list of things not covered in the bill is a mechanism to stem rising Read more […]

Obamacare Provides Accessible Healthcare Just Like 2003

Accessible healthcare? No more than before, or worse. John Goodman spells it out at Forbes.com: By one estimate, 14 million people are newly insured because of the Affordable Care Act. In addition millions of others have more generous insurance, promising new benefits. So you might expect that doctors’ offices would be flooded with a host of new patients seeking more care than they had before. It’s not happening. To avoid the effects of the 2008 financial crisis, the recession, and the Read more […]

Obamacare Rationing by Price: Accident or Design?

Customers are imposing Obamacare rationing on themselves. There were a couple of reasons given for the Affordable Care Act, one of which should lead us to expect Obamacare rationing. On the one hand, we were told that people were not able to afford needed medical care. On the other hand, we were told that people were spending too much on medical care and they needed to stop wasting resources (especially if they were old). Now we find that people, who have insurance through Obamacare, are Read more […]

White House: There is Plenty of Oil but It Must “Stay In the Ground.”

Thomas Friedman interviewed the President in the New York Times and this exchange blew my mind: Thomas Friedman: Every morning you get a security briefing from the intelligence community on global threats; do you now also get the same on environmental threats? Barack Obama: I do. I don’t know which is worse: that the President might be lying in order to propagandize us or that he might actually get these “environmental” briefings because everyone at the White House is really that delusional. We Read more […]

The VA Hospital Scandal is Our Future Under Obamacare!

Michael D. Tanner states the obvious in the New York Post: “VA hospitals are a government-run disaster.” The scandal has now spread to other veteran facilities. VA employees at an outpatient clinic in Fort Collins, Colo., falsified appointment records to hide the fact that as many as 6,300 veterans treated at the outpatient clinic waited months to be seen for treatment. In Wyoming, whistleblowers have accused officials of manipulating records to hide wait times. VA officers in San Antonio and Read more […]

Health Care Rationing: Sick Girl Denied Help Due to “Budget Cuts”

Never forget: Obamacare (and all such programs) are primarily about control—they’re about a self-anointed elite making decisions as to what they believe is best for you (and/or most advantageous to them!). In some countries it is specifically “illegal” to go against the decrees of the State health authorities—even if you have the money, no doctor is allowed to accept it to perform a procedure the “anointed ones” have decided is not permissible. The Daily Mail headline today: “Little Read more […]

Fox News On How You Get To Die Insured Thanks To Obamacare

I’ve mentioned before how the massive Medicaid expansion being pushed by the Affordable Care Act means basically the right to be on the waiting list for a doctor forever. I’ve also mentioned reports that tell us that Obamacare insurance itself, beside being less affordable than advertised, is also going to deliver more shortages and less care. Doctors are opting out because they think that, like Medicaid, the insurance companies won’t be paying much for services. Today, Fox News finds us Read more […]

How Death Panels Work Without Being Legal

Guaranteed: Unless Obamacare is killed… the elderly and infirm will be. Once government makes all the decisions on who gets care and when, you’ll have nowhere to turn—even if you have the money to pay. Big hearts and no brain activity leads to terrible outcomes. Think, people! If a consummate, pathological liar is the one promoting something, do you really think it’s going to be good for you? From The Telegraph: More than 450,000 frail elderly and disabled people who would until recently Read more […]

More News On Obamacare Restricting And Reducing Access To Healthcare

We’ve mentioned before how top hospitals are not going to be included in Obamacare, and that the number of available doctors will be restricted for those purchasing a plan through the exchanges. New stories  are coming out to confirm what we told you. AP reports that New Yorkers are now finding that the local medical resources in that city have become off-limits to many of them. New Yorkers buying a health plan on the state’s new insurance exchange should read the fine print if they’re Read more […]

Obamacation: Death Panels are Still Going Live

LifeNews.com reports: Freshmen and sophomores in a social studies class at St. Joseph-Ogden High School in Illinois were asked to make life-and-death decisions concerning people they’d never met…  The lesson began by telling students that ten people shared a serious problem: Without access to a dialysis machine, they would all die. Unfortunately, they were told, the local hospital only has enough machines for six of them. The assignment was to decide who got the treatment and who didn’t. Read more […]

UK Death Panels Kill Babies

The UK’s health system is run by the National Health Service (NHS) and is funded mostly by taxes. Different “care pathways” are used to manage each patient’s health depending on the severity of illness. If the doctor decides that the patient’s condition is beyond treatable, and death is imminent, the patient is put on the “Liverpool Care Pathway for the dying patient” (LCP). The LCP functions much like hospice care here in the U.S. Its function is to keep patients as comfortable and pain-free as Read more […]
