Skip to comments.Obamacare's Medicaid Fraud
Posted on 01/06/2014 6:22:55 PM PST by rootin tootin
A couple of weeks ago I visited my internist for the annual physical to which she subjects me in order to confirm that my various organs are still operating according to specifications. As she poked and prodded, I asked how her practice was going. This question elicited a resigned sigh and a brief but poignant discourse on the necessity of firing her Medicaid patients. Medicaid, the government program that ostensibly provides health coverage for the poor, imposes so much red tape and pays so parsimoniously that she simply cannot afford to treat these patients if she wishes to avoid bankruptcy.

The last paragraph: “The Democrat record regarding the underprivileged isnt pretty. They defended slavery, enforced racial segregation, opposed womens suffrage, and still chain low-income students to public schools that teach them virtually nothing. It shouldnt be surprising, then, that the Democrats have created a health reform program that denies poor people access to decent medical care.”
You don’t say!
It’s obvious to me.
Those 1%er docs just need to suck it up and treat Baraq’s peeps for free.
The poor get screwed. The Doctors get screwed. But the Democrat politicians are happy.
Another racist, no doubt. /s
That is why I have my tagline!
Doctors need to get over their “holier-than-thou” attitude and treat everyone for free (and 24 hours a day). What makes them so special that they can live high on the backs of the sick? Are they racists who are trying to undermine FREE nobamacare?????? Enquiring minds want to know.
“... But the Democrat politicians are happy.”
Of course they are happy — this is the agenda — to put the private medical industry out of business with private insurance companies. These Marxists want the American population on its knees before the Dear Leader begging for universal health care ala socialist mecca.
“she simply cannot afford to treat these patients if she wishes to avoid bankruptcy”
Clearly the problem here is that this Doctor has the freedom to choose who to treat. Since the solution to distortions caused by government intervention is always more government intervention, it’s just a matter of time before our Dear Leader issues an executive order forbidding Doctors from dropping their Medicaid patients.
“its just a matter of time before our Dear Leader issues an executive order forbidding Doctors from dropping their Medicaid patients.”
I think this will happen. Hussein will take control of who doctors must treat.
And, first indirectly, then directly he will limit their incomes.
Democrats are evil... the above statement is true - and proves they're evil...
I’ve thought that, too. He’ll just issue another *executive* order and deem this necessary. All the good docs will be out of here, soon.
I live in fear that my adult dtr neurologist will “lay her off” so to speak...she gets medicaid and needs his treatment every 3 months...I know he gets a rotten deal....sometimes, he won’t see my dtr until the state medicaid gets its act together and to try and call them and find out what’s wrong is an hours long wait....
Author is (somewhat unskillfully) trying to make you draw an incorrect conclusion from this, that the Medicaid patients are given less competent or complete care in the hospital..
The correct conclusion is: The Medicaid patients died at a higher rate because they were sicker and poorer going in.

Makes sense to me, however, people will infer from those numbers whatever they are pre inclined to believe.
Figures don't lie but liars do figure.
I sent that reply to you via private message - it was unintentional.
Yes. I once had an argument with a Socialist cousin where I pointed out that ANYONE could get medical CARE at an ER in this country. He then was upset that some would have to ‘wait for care’. I told him I wasn’t upset that some people might have to wait a while for FREE medical care. He was still incensed. Leftists were NEVER interested in the level of CARE a person received, they just want to have EVERYONE TAXED to provide all the ‘free care’. Democrats are such hypocritical pigs.
It gets worse than that:
What does this word mean?
The word “Dhimmitude” is found in the new health care bill; so what does it mean?
Thought this was interesting and worth passing on.
Obama used it in the health care bill.
Now isn’t this interesting? It is also included in the health care law.
Dhimmitude — I had never heard the word until now. I typed it into Google and started reading. Pretty interesting; It’s on page 107 of the healthcare bill. I looked this up on Google and yep, it exists... It is a REAL word.
Dhimmitude is the Muslim system of controlling non-Muslim populations conquered through jihad (Holy War). Specifically, it is the TAXING of non-Muslims in exchange for tolerating their presence AND as a coercive means of converting conquered remnants to Islam.
Obama Care allows the establishment of Dhimmitude and Sharia Muslim diktat in the United States . Muslims are specifically exempted from the government mandate to purchase insurance, and also from the penalty tax for being uninsured. Islam considers insurance to be ,”gambling”, “risk-taking”, and “usury” and is thus banned. Muslims are specifically granted exemption based on this.
How convenient. So I, as a Christian, will have crippling IRS liens placed against all of my assets, including real estate, cattle, and even accounts receivable, and will face hard prison time because I refuse to buy insurance or pay the penalty tax. Meanwhile, Louis Farrakhan will have no such penalty and will have 100% of his health insurance needs paid for by the de facto government insurance. Non-Muslims will be paying a tax to subsidize Muslims.
This is Dhimmitude.
I recommend sending this on to your contacts.
