Just another example of good things the President is doing that will be ignored by the LSM.
Nice to hear the testimonials included, especially the first gentleman to speak but also the young people who give their testimonials.
At the end of the meeting, the President answers questions, especially about the economy, the trade deals with Mexico and potentially with Canada, prison reform. Talked also about the billions we have put into Puerto Rico....and most of the people in Puerto Rico are very grateful for what we have done.
Talked about the potential violence briefly....about Google, Facebook - don’t want regulation just want fairness.
Me too, that was very nice
Very nice. Thanks for posting.
I may love this President but on this he is totally WRONG. All this FAKE OPIOID CRISIS is geared to the Street Junkie while PUNISHING INTRACTABLE PAIN PATIENTS. THEY STARTED WITH MILITARY WOUNDED AND VETS, 3 MONTHS before the Civilians. 75% reductions. Suicides are up among the INTRACTABLE PAIN PATIENTS. While Street Junkies are getting their fixes, we INCURABLE Pain PATIENTS have been FORCED TAPERED. Even Caner patients are being given less Pain meds.

$91 Million for Street Junkies, not a DIME for PAIN PATIENTS. Medicare is gutting tests again like they did under DUMBO. Hubby’s Glaucoma doc told him Medicare would NO LONGER Pay for Field Shell test. Tricare LIFE is the Secondary as hubby is Ret. SCPO. You may not think a simple Field Shell test is not important, it is when you are losing your VISION! It’s how they measure vision loss.
INTRACTABLE PAIN = A MEDICAL DISEASE IP for short. Chronic pain is a few weeks to a few months as for a broken bone.
Many disease can’t be cured, have no treatments, botched surgeries can’t be fixed. My BIL has a genetic Duchene’s MD, as does his brother and his 10 yr old grandson. There is no cure for it or Sickle Cell both are painful only a Opioid controls the pain.
FIX THE BORDERS, ARREST THE DEALERS, IMPORTERS, BUILD THE DAMN WALL. TREATMENT FOR THE JUNKIES HASN’T WORKED IN 40 YRS. SEARCH EVERY PACKAGE, SHIP, FLIGHT FROM CHINA HAS TO INCLUDING EVERY PIECE OF MAIL. USPS IS A BIG IMPORTER OF FENATAYL FROM CHINA. ORDER OFF THE DARK-NET.
Plus the CDC lied about the numbers of OD’S.
Thanks for your response.
Food for thought.
I agree the defacto prohibition has gone way too far. The vast majority of opioid users have no issues. The secret is simple, have physicians who are knowledgeable monitor their patients.
As for searching every piece of mail, not affordable, and probably impossible until there is a way to "sniff" through the packaging.
The latest decree from the WH is $91 Million for Street Junkies, not a dime for Intractable Pain Patients. If you use that phrase, it makes it a DISEASE that has to be treated with opioids. If you call it Chronic, it is not a disease, it is short term as in a broken arm pain and no Opioid med is needed.
Dentist and I talked prior to him taking out 6 teeth Monday, most of his fellow dentist are refusing pain meds, even for 3 days. He is NOT 1 of them. He is a Ret. Army Reserve COL. who had tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, and does volunteer work in third world countries. Top 10 dentist in Memphis.
TN just shut down another pain clinic ‘fraud’, that leaves 65 for the entire state.
