Subject: FW: ObamaCare Analyzed by St. Joe Hosp. Surgeon
This was sent to us by a friend and former colleague of Bob's . As it turns
out, I know this doctor. His daughter, Allison, was a student of mine at
Plymouth/Canton Montessori School many years ago. He is a physician/surgeon
at St. Joe Hospital , our Hospital of choice. Thought you might be
interested in hearing his views.
Subject: ObamaCare Analyzed by St. Joe Hosp. Surgeon
Worth the read.
Dr. Dave Janda is a highly respected surgeon at St. Joe's
Hospital in Ypsilanti and Ann Arbor. He has dedicated his life to health
care reform and is often asked to speak to groups of business and political
leaders. As the nation watches our politicians and the media spin the
presidents proposal for health care reform in many different directions, I
would like to pass along a summary from Dr. Janda. He is obviously opposed
to the presidents plan, however, he offers some rather clear insight for his
Subject: Health Care....Not so much....Janda
As I mentioned last Friday, I was given the opportunity to be the keynote
speaker at a Congressional Dinner at The Capitol Building. The presentation
entitled.....Health Care Reform, The Power & Profit of Prevention was well
received and several very positive developments have occurred. I will
outline these at a later date.
In preparation for the presentation, I read the latest version of
"reform" as authored by The Obama Administration and supported by Speaker
Pelosi and Senator Reed. Below is the link to the over 1000 page
Let me summarize just a few salient points of the above
plan......warning.......they need to put the same warning on The Obama Plan
as they do a pack of cigarettes.....Consuming this product WILL be hazardous
to your health.
The underlying method of cutting costs throughout the plan is based on
rationing and denying care NOT PREVENTING health care need. The plan's
method is the most inhumane and unethical approach in cutting costs. The
rationing of care is implemented through The National Health Care Board,
according to the plan. This illustrious Board "will approve or reject
treatment for patients based on the cost per treatment divided by the number
of years the patient will benefit from the treatment." Translation.....if
you are over 65 or have been recently=2 0diagnosed as having an advanced
form of cardiac disease or aggressive cancer.....dream on if you think you
will get treated.....pick out your box. Oh you say...this could never
happen......sorry....this is the same model they use in Britain.
Not to worry, according to the plan, there will be little or no advanced
treatments to be available .....why? The plan also creates The Federal
Coordinating Council For Comparative Effectiveness Research. This
illustrious Council's purpose is "to slow the development of new medications
and technologies in order to reduce costs." How special is that !!
The plan also outlines that doctors and hospitals will be overseen and
reviewed by The National Coordinator For Health Information and Technology.
This " coordinator" will "monitor treatments being delivered to make sure
doctors and hospitals are strictly following government guidelines that are
deemed appropriate." It goes on to say....."Doctors and hospitals NOT
adhering to guidelines will face penalties." According to those in Congress
penalties could include large six figure financial fines and possible
imprisonment. So according to the Obama Plan....if your doctor saves your
life you might have to go to the prison to see your doctor for follow -up
appointments. I believe this is the same model Stalin used in the former
On page 425 of The Obama Plan, "The End of Life Counseling Program" is
discussed. After each American turns 65 years of age they have to go to a
mandated counseling program that is designed to end life sooner. This
session is to occur every 5 years unless the person has developed a chronic
illness then it must be done every year. The topics in this session will
include, "how to decline hydration, nutrition and how to initiate hospice
care." It is no wonder The Obama Administration does NOT like my emphasis
on Prevention......Prevention is the "enemy"......people would live longer.
Finally, on page 16 of the plan.....it is ILLEGAL for a citizen to have
private insurance if they lose their job, change their job, become a senior
citizen or graduate from college and land their first
job.....yes....illegal. When President Obama was asked about this portion
of his plan yesterday his response was...." I am not familiar with that part
of the plan." Don't believe me......take a look.
a conference call with bloggers urging them to pressure Congress to
pass his health plan as soon as possible.
During the call, a blogger from Maine said he kept running into an
Business Daily article that claimed Section 102 of the House health
legislation would outlaw private insurance. He asked: "Is this true? Will
people be able to keep their insurance and will insurers be able to write
new policies even though H.R. 3200 is passed?" President Obama replied: "You
know, I have to say that I am not familiar with the provision you are
I rest my case....The Plan authored by Obama / Pelosi / Reed is hazardous
to the health of every American.
In Washington on Thursday night, I was asked by a Congressman in the
question - answer session...." I am doing a number of network interviews
next week on the Obama Health Care Plan. If I am asked what is the one word
to describe the plan what should I answer."
The answer is simple, honest, direct, analytical, sad but truthful......
the word is FASCIST.
A day after a Russ Carnahan event led to the arrests of five participants and a reporter, University City High School — where U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill was set to hold a similar event on Tuesday– announced that the forum has been canceled.
The school district sent a news release this afternoon stating that the “reasons for the cancellation by the school district are due to concerns for the safety and security of its staff, community members attending the event, and for the students who would be on campus during that time.”
There is no word on whether McCaskill will find a new venue or keep a second town hall forum scheduled for later the same day in Jefferson County.
Either way, its hard not to notch the decision as a signal of the growing influence of the Tea Party coalition, who had succeeded at heckling Carnahan at two earlier meetings.
Although what the move portends for democracy — that citizens can’t gather for a public forum without fears of descending into fisticuffs? — may be up for debate.
The cancelation is sure to raise eyebrows in Washington, where many other lawmakers are bracing for tough meetings during the Congressional break.
