BS!!!!

I personally have cut corners and skipped doctors visits and my health suffers because I cannot afford it.

And I am not that poor. I have not had work paid health care ever.

I know I am not alone.

True if I walked into an ER with my arm falling off Im sure someone would help me ... but that is some minimal care. Every human should have full and equal health care to anyone else. Any other case is unethical and immoral.

But dont try and say that everyone in the US has access to affordable healthcare. There are millions undernourished and sick here in the US. Look at our VETS for heaven's sake. We cant even treat them right!

I have stayed in a VA hospital for 59 days and almost lost my left foot as the Intern acting as a doctor made a mistake. Very scary the treatment back in 1977 we got from the VA hospital. But the Intern told me face to face that he made the mistake and said he was sorry. I have had a mistake made on me at the NHS and when the doctor found out he would not see me until I was put under for repairs of the mistake and never said sorry. Times have changed a bit as I have seen the new VA hospital in Reno and it is a beauty. However the Vets inside are still angry so it cannot be that good! I moved to England 25 years ago. I have stayed in an NHS hospital 6 times and I would rather be in a VA hospital instead any day. In the VA hospital I am treated with more respect. NHS gets paid if they deal with me or not. VA hospital have some doctors and nurses who care. My room in the VA hospital was always cleaned and I received reasonable meals. I cannot say the same about the NHS. But here in England it is free if you survive. The news the other day stated that prisoners receive healthier means than the NHS hospitals. Does America really want sales tax of 17.5% and the Torys say they will take it to 20% to cover the bail outs if elected. Gas in the UK is $7.00 - $10 a gallon depending on exchange rate and shortages. Does America really want to pay those kinds of prices for national health care? I heard the speech no new tax money to go into health care. How many times have they fed that line. Remember Chryslers bail out in the 80's and today they say future Chryslers cars will be made in China. It all sounds good at the time but in time it seems that everyone forgets what was originally promised.... Just MHO and experiences both sides of the pond as it were.

As opposed to President Obama, to whom the healthcare industry donated over 12 million dollars. Source.

The healthcare industry loves this idea. They are going to make a fortune off of the collective stupidity of American morons.

You will get your nationalized healthcare, don't worry. It'll use the private system already in place. And you will get taxed to pay it, and all those taxes will line the pockets of the CEO of Kaiser Permanente, Legacy, Providence, and any other healthcare company the government contracts with.

So stupid.... people actually think that the healthcare industry is resisting this. Kaiser (the company I work for) has the largest lobby in the US for healthcare, and you know what it's mandate is? To get Universal coverage for all Americans. Do you know why an insurance company would want that? Because they can charge the government whatever the hell they want for your healthcare, because you are going to be forced to pay under a universal system.

It's is amusing to watch all those anti-corporate protestors, protesting...... for the "basic human right" to pay a corporation a ton of money to take advantage of you. Who's in bed with big business now?

Gee that's funny, are we forgetting that this whole healthcare bull is all a big great sham. The private companies and the Obama administration are all in it together! This little charade that these guys are playing seems to be working its magic on some of our ATS comrades after all. Keep in mind people, Obama is a corrupted puppet, and though we may be without all the facts we can safely assume his ultimate motive. There is nothing to gain from his healthcare program. He is a big fat liar, and chances are that guy might had gotten paid for his outburst. I tell you this though, the fact he is getting skewered by the public and the politicians alike shows me that society crucifies those who are outspoken and don't fear showing emotion. Don't be a robot, don't be a sheep. Though there are ways to behave in certain settings, the guy is human and given the bull that Obama has been spewing, I am surprised he didn't throw his shoe at him.

For crying out loud, even LEFTIST websites have posted the fact that OBAMA MADE DEALS WITH BIG PHARMA...


Internal Memo Confirms Big Giveaways In White House Deal With Big Pharma

A memo obtained by the Huffington Post confirms that the White House and the pharmaceutical lobby secretly agreed to precisely the sort of wide-ranging deal that both parties have been denying over the past week.


The memo, which according to a knowledgeable health care lobbyist was prepared by a person directly involved in the negotiations, lists exactly what the White House gave up, and what it got in return.

It says the White House agreed to oppose any congressional efforts to use the government's leverage to bargain for lower drug prices or import drugs from Canada -- and also agreed not to pursue Medicare rebates or shift some drugs from Medicare Part B to Medicare Part D, which would cost Big Pharma billions in reduced reimbursements.

In exchange, the Pharmaceutical Researchers and Manufacturers Association (PhRMA) agreed to cut $80 billion in projected costs to taxpayers and senior citizens over ten years. Or, as the memo says: "Commitment of up to $80 billion, but not more than $80 billion."

www.huffingtonpost.com...

So again, the dellusional claims from those people who keep claiming Obama, and his administration are trying to pass this healthcare reform to help the people, are not only dellusional, but they continuously want to dismiss the facts about the Obama healthcare reform WHICH EVEN LEFTIST SOURCES CONFIRM....

Healthcare FLASHBACKS (VIDEO)
The above comes from THE HUFF, another LEFTIST source and it shows several videos of the lies, I mean changes that President Obama has made about healthcare reform which differ from the promises he made.

Obama's healthcare reform to help elder Americans?.... NOPE...
www.youtube.com...

Not to mention the following...

BTW, as i posted on another thread, here are some of the things done by the Obama administration with the blessings of President Obama.

Apart from the DHS, under Janet Napolitano, labeling most Americans as "possible terrorists" just for wanting to uphold and defend the Constitution, the following are some of the other things done by the Obama administration, and President Obama himself.

Let's see... What recent presidents EVER called for a Civilian National Security Force, with more Americorps, and Obama youths that have ages starting from secondary and even primary school?

What president wanted to have these Civilian National Security and children to train in anti-terrorist drills?

What president passed a law, as H.R. 1388 which states the Corporation has the power over all learn based/educational programs, as well as Community Service programs. This includes ALL children, whether they are stay at home kids, whether they go to privae schools, or a school in a reservation.

not to mention...


H.R.1388
GIVE Act (Introduced in House)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


SEC. 6104. DUTIES.
.....................

(6) Whether a workable, fair, and reasonable mandatory service requirement for all able young people could be developed, and how such a requirement could be implemented in a manner that would strengthen the social fabric of the Nation and overcome civic challenges by bringing together people from diverse economic, ethnic, and educational backgrounds.

(7) The need for a public service academy, a 4-year institution that offers a federally funded undergraduate education with a focus on training future public sector leaders.

(8) The means to develop awareness of national service and volunteer opportunities at a young age by creating, expanding, and promoting service options for elementary and secondary school students, through service learning or other means, and by raising awareness of existing incentives.

(9) The effectiveness of establishing a training program on college campuses to recruit and educate college students for national service.


Unfortunately this link doesn't last long, but you can check the information yourself.

link

Oh, and let's not forget the Corporation has the right to have a centralized electronic citizenship verification system...


Study of Centralized Electronic Citizenship Verification System: H.R. 1388 authorizes the Corporation to conduct a new study on establishing an electronic citizenship verification system and then implement a pilot based on the recommendations from the study. The bill authorizes such sums for this study from FY 2010 through 2014.

Link

Scroll down almost to the middle.

You think all of the above is "for the good of the people"?

The Obama healthcare reform is about giving more power to BIG PHARMA. Instead of allowing people, even elder Americans having treatments, or operations that could save them, and keep them from taking more pills, instead the government, and president Obama himself claim "it might be better if you take the pill, instead of having the treatment, or operation because the treatments or operations are not economically viable.

Obamacare: Just take a Pill

Let's not forget Obama- Preventive and Indefinite Detention
Which again comes from a LEFTIST source known as Rachael Maddow....

But I guess all of the above is not true... Even when this information is confirmed by LEFTIST SOURCES....


But hey, keep cheering for Obama's CHANGE all you want... He is only destroying the Republic and consolidating power for the elite, and not for the people....

They need to kick that Congressman's xss, he is a low lying scum of the Earth person. Making $250,000 to say the President lies for some scum sucking company. The government needs to go in and bull doze that company into the ground for crap like that and make an example out of it.

Good find All Seeing I, and Thanks for reporting an injustice.



How about Obama not mentioning tort reform as a way to help fix healthcare costs and being paid $43,071,129 from law firms and Lawyers?...his TOP campaign contributor!

$250,000 from a healthcare company is small compared to what others are getting. Obama recieved $19,462,986 from the healthcare industry during his campaign...and the Congressman's yelling "you lie" had absolutely nothing to do with American citizens, but with illegal immigrants.

They get denied all the time. Big Insurance calls your medical problem a "preexisting condition" - coverage denied.

The US has among the best hospitals in the world cobbled with a third-world health care system. It's that way because that's how Big Pharm and Big Insurance want it.

'"You Lie" Congressman Wilson Paid $250K for His Outburst!'

That title is extremely misleading. Phrased like that, it sounds like he was paid $250K to do what he did when in reality, he has received over $250,000 in contributions from health professionals over the course of his career (not for this incident) as well as tens of thousands of dollars from others in the health industry:
***snip***


One could argue that he was indeed paid - in instalments.

Slightly (!) misleading header, but considering that the industry has bought Wilson's allegiance it's not THAT misleading.

Have you read the rest of the thread? If Wilson was "bought" by the industry, then Obama's a paid top executive for them.

Whether he was "paid" or not remains to be seen. It appears he was right though considering they have started to include provisions specifically regarding Illegals.

Source



. . . on Friday, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs sketched a new position that goes even further than some conservative critics had demanded: Obama will oppose letting illegal immigrants buy insurance through new purchasing exchanges the government will set up - even from private companies operating within the exchanges.

. . . Illegal immigrants were to be allowed in the exchange and even in the public plan if they used their own money under legislation that passed three committees in the House and one in the Senate.

I think a lot of people want a health care reform...

It is just the way Obama and his crew are pushing it through which is making everybody uncomfortable about it.

Not that it isn't a bad idea...it is just that he is doing a bad job WITH IT.

Having a good idea and actually carrying it out are two different things.

All giant corporations are out of control, thanks partly to our government. Now they want to fix it right? They cause it then have the solutions?

I love how you people lump what politicians do into what millions of americans are upset about. we should already be getting the HC you speak of, with the money we are already paying! They want us to pay MORE? I wont pay it and i am sure many others wont.

He actually made more that 250K, he made almost another 300K from pharma companies and people who back the medical community. I don't have the source, but I read about it in an article that sources whatever the website is for people's freedom of information on congressional funding.

Its really looking like Health Care Reform is scoring good points to keep peoples attention on townhall meetings instead of casinos. Perhaps all the casino money will be replaced with world dollars when all the people mad about death panels return? Next, the underaged drinking security force will be used to get the attention of parents away from politics and on their own safety as their children become drunken gun totting Obamamaniacs. I can say I don't like where this is going. How quick to get the country under control as biological parents will refuse to murder their own Mordred children while strings are easily pulled for ultimate power and control. Or how about, lets exploit the recent live and let live philosophy against the ancient shovanist live and let die logic. This will keep the masses busy trying to keep their relationships in order or pulling their hair out at the attorney generals court. All this and much much more, brought to you by, TECHNOLOGY, King Nimrod's return.

Here is the link to the Open Secrets home page. Not for any particular politician. Everyone can easily search for their own Congressman and see that Wilson is not any different than the rest of the crooks who sell their souls to the lobbyists. With the permission of AllSeeingI I'd like to post a link to my rant on this very thing, as it relates to the current "helath care reform" debate.
