Scared of Obamacare’s IPAB? Meet the USPSTF!

February 27, 2013 Leave a comment

Those unelected boards are coming into their own, making decisions for doctors and patients alike.

In the fight over Obamacare, one of the hottest points of contention has been the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), an unelected body with powers so broad that it has been called a “super-legislature” by some, and a potential “death panel” by others. Major policies set by the IPAB will have the force of law unless they are explicitly blocked by Congress. The usual order, of course, is that Congress is supposed to make the laws and bureaucrats are supposed to follow them.

AGAIN, Veterans Get The Middle Finger From The obama Regime.


[TWG Note: Just when I thought I couldn’t HATE that marxist bastard son of a whore any more than I do now, he pulls THIS. The obama regime continues to stick “it” to our Veterans, with nary a whimper from said Veterans. Most of our returning Veterans are being systematically labled with so-called “PTSD” before they even step foot back on our soil, pumped up with drugs and, as a result, DISARMED.  The so-called “Veterans” groups are popping up everywhere, but when one looks into who’s behind them, it’s soros and obama’s klan.  Our Veterans are being used and abused here, treated as nothing more than pawns in the game by this obama regime.  It makes me SICK to see ANY Veteran supporting those marxist pigs. Especially when we see articles such as this one.  HOW MANY TIMES DOES THIS OBAmA REGIME NEED TO SCREW YOU OVER BEFORE YOU OPEN YOUR EYES AND SEE THIS REGIME FOR WHAT THEY ARE?!?!?!?!  First obama cuts $500 BILLION from seniors and disabled, and now he wants to cut $500 BILLION from Veterans healthcare.  obama and the rest of his horrid regime (INCLUDING STATE GOVERNMENTS)  parade our Veterans, police, firefighters and teachers whenever they want to steal more money to line their own coffers.  VETERANS…. WAKE UP.  Don’t allow them to label you with a non-existent mental issue if you are not suffering from such.  YOU ARE BEING DISARMED ON A MASSIVE SCALE.  With PTSD and the drugs they’re pushing, you will NEVER regain your Second Amendment rights.  obama’s thug at DHS already labeled you Veterans as potential “Domestic Terrorists”.  They don’t want YOU owning or carrying firearms.  WAKE UP, VETERANS.  You are being used and abused by the obama regime.  Our Veterans shouldn’t have to pay ONE PENNY toward their healthcare….EVER.]

The Obama administration on Friday threatened to veto a defense appropriations bill in part because it does not include higher health care fees for members of the military.

“The Administration is disappointed that the Congress did not incorporate the requested TRICARE fee initiatives into either the appropriation or authorization legislation,” the White House wrote in an official policy statement expressing opposition to the bill, which the House approved in May……(Con’t)

Why ObamaCare Will Fail: A Reading List From The Ludwig Von Misus Institute


Mises Daily: Thursday, June 28, 2012 by

 

The Supreme Court today upheld “Obamacare,” a massive economic intervention ostensibly designed to cure the ills of American healthcare. Of course those ills were themselves caused by intervention, and this “cure” will only make the situation even worse. The “cycle of interventionism” Mises warned us about continues to intensify….(Con’t)

Obama’s Solicitor General, and recent appointment to the bench, has leaked to Obama the courts vote of last Friday was 5/4 to strike down Obama’s health care law. Look to see the Democrats heavy hand in trying to get the decision changed before the June announcement..
 
Obama May Be In Deep Trouble… with Chief Justice John Roberts, US Supreme Court Anthony G. Martin – North St. Paul News
 
According to sources who watch the inner workings of the federal government, a smack-down of Barack Obama by the US Supreme Court may be inevitable.
 
Ever since Obama assumed the office of President, critics have hammered him on a number of Constitutional issues. Critics have complained that much, if not all of Obama’s major initiatives run headlong into Constitutional roadblocks on the power of the federal government. Obama certainly did not help himself in the eyes of the Court when he used the venue of the State of the Union address early in the year to publicly flog the Court over its ruling that the First Amendment grants the right to various organizations to run political ads during the time of an election. The tongue-lashing clearly did not sit well with the Court, as demonstrated by Justice Sam Alito, who publicly shook his head and stated under his breath, ‘That’s not true,’ when Obama told a flat-out lie concerning the Court’s ruling.
 
As it has turned out, this was a watershed moment in the relationship between the executive and the judicial branches of the federal government. Obama publicly declared war on the court, even as he blatantly continued to propose legislation that flies in the face of every known Constitutional principle upon which this nation has stood for over 200 years.
 
Obama has even identified Chief Justice John Roberts as his number one enemy, that is, apart from Fox News and Rush Limbaugh, Beck, Hannity and so on. And it is no accident that the one swing-vote on the court, Justice Anthony Kennedy, stated recently that he has no intention of retiring until ‘Obama is gone.’ Apparently, the Court has had enough. The Roberts Court has signaled, in a very subtle manner, of course, that it intends to address the issues about which Obama critics have been screaming to high heaven. A ruling against Obama on any one of these important issues could potentially cripple the Administration. Such a thing would be long overdue.
 
First, there is ObamaCare, which violates the Constitutional principle barring the federal government from forcing citizens to purchase something. And no, this is not the same thing as states requiring drivers to purchase car insurance, as some of the intellectually-impaired claim. The Constitution limits the FEDERAL government, not state governments, from such things, and further, not everyone has to drive, and thus, a citizen could opt not to purchase car insurance by simply deciding not to drive a vehicle. In the ObamaCare world, however, no citizen can ‘opt out.’
 
Second, sources state that the Roberts court has quietly accepted information concerning discrepancies in Obama’s history that raise serious questions about his eligibility for the office of President. The charge goes far beyond the birth certificate issue. This information involves possible fraudulent use of a Social Security number in Connecticut , while Obama was a high school student in Hawaii . ..
 
And that is only the tip of the iceberg.
 
Third, several cases involving possible criminal activity, conflicts of interest, and pay-for-play cronyism could potentially land many Administration officials, if not Obama himself, in hot water with the Court. Frankly, in the years this writer has observed politics, nothing comes close to comparing with the rampant corruption of this Administration, not even during the Nixon years. Nixon and the Watergate conspirators look like choirboys compared to the jokers that populate this Administration.
 
In addition, the Court will eventually be forced to rule on the dreadful decision of the Obama DOJ suing the state of Arizona . That, too, could send the Obama doctrine of open borders to an early grave, given that the Administration refuses to enforce federal law on illegal aliens.
 
And finally, the biggie that could potentially send the entire house of cards tumbling in a free-fall is the latest revelation concerning the Obama-Holder Department of Justice and its refusal to pursue the New Black Panther Party. The group was caught on tape committing felonies by attempting to intimidate Caucasian voters into staying away from the polls. A whistle-blower who resigned from the DOJ is now charging Holder with the deliberate refusal to pursue cases against Blacks, particularly those who are involved in radical hate-groups, such as the New Black Panthers, who have been caught on tape calling for the murder of white people and their babies. This one is a biggie that could send the entire Administration crumbling–that is, if the Justices have the guts to draw a line in the sand at the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
 
 
[TWG Note: Personally, I hope that usurping, marxist son of a dirty whore rots and burns in that special place reserved for things like him. His entire regime should be arrested, convicted and punished accordingly for their multiple treasonous crimes against this Nation and Her Citizens.  I hope they ALL rot in an eternal pit of fire.]
 

OBAMACARE’S LETHAL THIRD RAIL SHOCK TO COME

February 23, 2010 Leave a comment

©Elizabeth Lee Vliet, M.D.

Subway riders know the adage – The third rail is deadly –it carries the current that can kill you. Avoid the third rail.

We are about to get that “third rail” for government-controlled healthcare. Then comes the death blow to your medical privacy, your freedom to choose medical treatment options, and your ability to control the cost of any private health insurance you may want to buy.

Democrats, working in the shadows away from public view and using devious “ divide and conquer” strategies, have already laid two tracks for a complete government control of your healthcare. They only have one more rail to go .

The first two rails were craftily hidden in the Stimulus Bill of February 2009.

While the public thinks healthcare bills are still “out there” and not yet passed, the Democrats have been celebrating the anniversary of the Stimulus Bill, knowing that their “Stimulus” stealth tactics already laid those first two healthcare tracks for government control.

Populist rhetoric hides the lethal third rail. It is called “ insurance reform .” It’s brilliantly deceptive and diabolical in its 3-step simplicity:

1. Control medical records and private health information of every person in the United States, and penalize health professionals who refuse to release your personal information. ALREADY PASSED into law February 2009. Come 2014, YOU no longer control YOUR medical records.

2. C ontrol delivery of all health services under the guise of “comparative effectiveness research” and the “complete lives system” that decides a person’s value based on age. The federal health czar’s panel of bureaucrats and computers will decide whether or not you are “worth” the cost of treatment, and what treatment you will be approved to obtain. ALREADY PASSED into law February 2009.

3. The Missing Third Rail: Insurance “Reform. ” Control of all private insurers in the country. The rhetoric goes this way: These “bad” insurance companies must be reined in. Government must protect people. Government will dictate what insurance plans must cover, what they cannot exclude .

Government dictates mean dramatic price increases if companies are forced to give up using their risk-based approach to underwriting, which helps keep premium costs down. Then the private insurance market collapses.

We lose our freedom to choose our plan.

Once this third rail is in place, you will have lost all control of your healthcare. Done deal. This third rail will kill private healthcare as we know it.

This is the only remaining part of the massive Senate and House healthcare bills that the Democrats know is critical to get passed in order to achieve their goal on government control of your healthcare.

I think this is the next stealth strategy for the Obama-Pelosi-Reid team: seduce you into thinking that insurance “reform” is actually going to protect you, and that’s “all” they really need to pass now.

The protectionist subterfuge hides the dangers of the third rail shock until it is too late.

Charles Krauthammer wrote on January 15, 2010: “Then… the federal government will regulate in crushing detail one-sixth of the U.S. economy. By essentially abolishing medical underwriting (actuarially based risk assessment) and replacing it with government fiat, ObamaCare turns the health insurance companies into utilities, their every significant move dictated by government regulators.”

Federal bureaucrats will make decisions about your treatment, not your doctor or other health professional. Members of the House and Senate who voted for the massive Stimulus Bill, without reading it, already put the federal government in control of your personal medical information. The Stimulus Bill already sold out your medical privacy. The Stimulus Bill already put the federal health czar in control of what treatment options you will be allowed to have.

The third rail, euphemistically called “insurance reform,” (really insurance controls ) will deal the lethal blow to private health insurance. Laying the third rail trap, the politicians will rob you of your privacy, your medical treatment options, and now, your choice of how to pay for care.

This “third rail” must be stopped before the best medical care in the world is destroyed. The problems we face in healthcare today are not caused by doctors, insurance companies, drug companies, or medical device makers. The problems we face are caused by politicians creating more and more big government regulation, more and more government intrusion into the patient-doctor relationship. Their solution is a political one, but it is not in patients’ best interests.

We must get the politicians OUT of healthcare.

Ronald Reagan warned in 1961: “ Socialism begins with government control of medicine.” Reagan also said, “Socialized medicine is always presented as a great emergency, and if you challenge it, you are attacked with accusations that you lack compassion.” This is exactly what we are hearing from progressive Democrats today.

Insurance controls become the third rail , a lethal assault on your Constitutionally guaranteed unalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. This third rail is the final shock that can kill you. Politicians cannot save you.

Doctors and patients across the country must join to stop this third rail. Then we have to start ripping up traps from the other two healthcare tracks they have laid.
