  • ObamaCare patients with serious pre-existing diseases could face expensive drug costs (NOT covered)

    People with serious pre-existing diseases, precisely those the president aimed to help with ObamaCare, could find themselves paying for expensive drug treatments with no help from the health care exchanges. Dr. Scott Gottlieb of the American Enterprise Institute explains,"if the medicine that you need isn't on that list, it's not covered at all. You have to pay completely out of pocket to get that medicine, and the money you spend doesn't count against your deductible, and it doesn't count against your out of pocket limits, so you're basically on your own." The plan had claimed it would rescue those with...

    Full Title: Now sick babies go on death pathway: Doctor's haunting testimony reveals how children are put on end-of-life plan Sick children are being discharged from NHS hospitals to die at home or in hospices on controversial ‘death pathways’.Until now, end of life regime the Liverpool Care Pathway was thought to have involved only elderly and terminally-ill adults. But the Mail can reveal the practice of withdrawing food and fluid by tube is being used on young patients as well as severely disabled newborn babies. One doctor has admitted starving and dehydrating ten babies to death in the neonatal unit...
  • Bad death akin to botched abortion...calls doctors to end opposition to assisted dying

    The Telegraph ^ | 6/14/12 | Rebecca Smith
    A change in the law to allow doctors to help mentally competent adults to end their lives is 'almost inevitable', Dr Fiona Godlee said, and the medical profession should not oppose it. A survey of GPs found almost two thirds were in favour of the British Medical Association and the Royal Colleges adopting a neutral stance to the issue. Assisted dying is due to be debated at the BMA conference at the end of the month. Dr Godlee said the debate on assisted dying is similar to that of abortion reform in the 1960s when the main medical professional bodies...

    The crisis in health care is manageable - without the radical, extreme measures passed in the Affordable Care Act.USA Today reports that just 5% of patients account for 50% of health care spending. And just 1% account for 22% of the spending. That's about $90,000 per person, according to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. U.S. residents spent $1.26 trillion that year on health care.Five percent accounted for 50% of health care costs, about $36,000 each, the report said.The report's findings can be used to predict which consumers are most likely to drive up health care costs and...

    Bobby Schindler New York City, N.Y., Nov 18, 2011 / 10:55 am (CNA).- Reports that one in six disabled persons in New York over the last decade have died from preventable causes has drawn sharp criticism from local media and disability advocates. “We are devaluing these people,” Bobby Schindler of the Life and Hope Network told CNA, and “we are seeing” this kind of treatment “rationalized and justified everyday.”The New York Times outlined death reports on Nov. 5 of developmentally disabled persons throughout the last 10 years. The newspaper found that those receiving care in New York died from...

If you’re wondering how we can possibly afford “Medicare for all” when we can’t afford Medicare for some, you obviously missed this video from a few weeks ago of Jones reassuring America that we are not in fact broke, no matter how many zeroes there might be up on that national debt scoreboard....

    The Wall Street Journal reported ("Government Care's Assault on Seniors," July 23 2009) that Congressional legislation (H.R. 3200) will "reduce access to care, pressure the elderly to end their lives prematurely, and doom baby boomers to painful later years." This is consistent with material on Barack Obama's own Web site, Barackobama.com. It is to be remembered that all contributions are vetted by the site's moderators, and material with which Obama's staff does not agree is deleted. Barack Obama's Web site approved numerous postings to the effect that the country's senior citizens--and we will all be senior citizens some day unless...

    LONDON (AFP) — A seriously ill British baby boy died on Saturday, the day after his parents lost a legal battle to force doctors to keep him alive. The parents wanted medics to keep treating their son -- who had a rare metabolic disorder, was brain damaged and had suffered respiratory failure -- but doctors said he had no prospect of recovery and was in intolerable pain. A hearing at the Court of Appeal on Friday to resolve the dispute backed the doctors although judges voiced the "deepest sympathy" for the mother and father of the nine-month-old boy. The parents,...

    Washington bureaucrats hoped something wouldn't see the light of day until it was too late. Buried in the stimulus bill is the framework for rationing medical care to the elderly. The part Obama and his cohorts are talking about publicly -- electronic medical records -- sounds great: no more having to fill out annoying paperwork at the doctor's office or hospital when you are ailing. But according to the provision's author, former Health and Human Services director nominee (and tax cheat) Tom Daschle, there's much more, including the newly-created bureaucracy of the National Coordinator of Health Information Technology. What will...

    (AP) DENVER With health costs rising, one state lawmaker thinks it's time to start discussing whether the state can afford to pay to treat smokers who get lung cancer, heart disease and other diseases linked to tobacco. Sen. Ron Teck, R-Grand Junction, wants to put people who continue to smoke despite the health risks on notice. Under a proposal set to be reviewed Wednesday at the state Capitol, people who started smoking before 1975 would still be eligible for Medicaid payments to treat smoking-related illnesses.

    Brussels – Nearly half the newborn babies who died in Flanders over a recent year-long period were helped to die by their doctors, a new study reported yesterday. Paediatricians in the Dutch-speaking region of Belgium either discreetly stopped treating the babies or, in 17 cases, illegally killed them with lethal doses of painkillers. The study, published in The Lancet, examined the deaths of every baby who died within a year of birth in Flanders between August 1999 and July 2000. The results of a survey on the causes of death were stark: paediatricians who responded to the survey admitted they...

    THE SLIDE TO AUSCHWITZ By: C. Everett Koop, M.D. In July the City Council of Cambridge, Massachusetts, voted to petition Harvard University to temporarily halt the construction of a half million dollar laboratory for specialized genetics research. This intervention of the town in the affairs of the University was not just the hysterical reaction of ignorant people to the misunderstood pursuits of a scientific faculty. Rather, it had been initiated and pushed by distinguished scholars on the Harvard faculty. These individuals were deeply concerned with the newly acquired power in biology to alter the genes of living organisms and create...
  • George Felos: Dehydration and Starvation--A Great Way to Die

    George Felos, perhaps trying to ease his guilt, (though this is unlikely since one must have a conscience to feel guilt) and improve his image as a heartless ogre, went before cameras and fed the world one of the biggest lies it has ever heard. He related how "peaceful and beautiful" Terri is as she lay dying. I guess if dying of dehydration and starvation is so lovely, perhaps we should all die that way. Perhaps we should give that option to criminals on death row. We certainly should stop being concerned about the children in poor countries dying of...

    By the time you read this, Terri Schiavo may well be dead, and America will have taken the next step down the road to democide. While the brothers Bush may not have found it within their executive powers to prevent a woman from being legally starved to death, they did manage to con an entire nation into thinking that they did not act because they could not. This is most unfortunate, because it is quite clear that neither George Bush nor his brother Jeb ever had any intention of saving Mrs. Schiavo from death by starvation. Like Pontius Pilate, they...

    In March, Shawn Doctor fed her family of six on $235 worth of food stamps -- for the entire month. "By the end there, we were having a hard time," she says. "We didn't have a lot of food in the house, nothing extra." April was only a little bit better. Her husband, Barney Doctor, who was laid off from his factory job in January, picked up some temporary work through Manpower, bringing in a week's worth of wages. But most of that went to pay overdue bills, not stock the cupboards. "We've given up what we used to buy,"...
