THE ENEMIES WITHIN : HEALTHCARE AGENDA

“Government-run heathcare is great as long as you don’t get old or sick.” – Trevor Loudon
Published on May 2, 2017

Trevor Loudon’s was forced to cut this clip about Obamacare from his

documentary film, the “Enemies Within.” 

Watch this exclusive clip about Obamacare – which proves beyond a

 shadow of a doubt – that the Affordable Care Act was “designed to

 fail.” 

Obamacare was intentionally set up to pave the way for the long-time

 socialist vision of a “Single Payer” system, or as Bernie Sanders

 euphemistically puts it, as “Medicare for All.”

THE BIG LIE OF SOCIALIZED MEDICINE BY DANIEL GREENFIELD

Saturday, August 5th, 2017

 


Daniel Greenfield’s article: The Big Lie of Socialized Medicine

http://sultanknish.blogspot.com/

Posted: 04 Aug 2017 11:17 AM PDT
As the health care debate goes on, Senator Bernie Sanders will toss in a socialized medicine bill.

Bernie’s bill won’t be a realistic piece of legislation. The 1 percenter Socialist from Vermont has three successful bills to his name. Two of those involved renaming post offices. He was a marginal figure during the ObamaCare debate. The financials of the plan won’t work. But they never do.

ObamaCare insurers are losing billions. Aetna pulled out after $700 million in losses. United Health jumped after losing $720 million. The single-payer that Bernie wants to propose will be even worse.

Vermont’s single payer experiment cost $4.3 billion out of a $4.9 billion state budget. The California Senate passed single-payer with no way to cover the $400 billion cost in a $183 billion budget.

Democrats who wouldn’t vote for it faced death threats and accusations that they were “murderers”.

That’s what every argument about socialized medicine comes down to. Either you support it or you want people to die.

Bernie Sanders has been accusing Republican repealers of killing thousands. If ObamaCare is repealed, “36,000 will die yearly”. Then he claimed, “up to 28,000 Americans every single year could die.”

Is it 36,000 or 28,000? Who cares? The point is, if you’re against socialized medicine, you’re a murderer. The right numbers, either the budget or the casualties, don’t matter. Emotions trump statistics.

In 2015, the year after ObamaCare took effect, the death rate rose for the first time in a decade. 2,471,984 deaths occurred in this country in 2008. In 2014, we were up to 2,626,418.

That’s a difference of 150,000. And going up, not down.

You would think that if the ObamaCare mandate is saving so many lives, we ought to be seeing fewer deaths, not more of them.

JUDICIAL WATCH : JUSTICE DEPTARMENT BLACKS OUT TALKING POINTS ON CLINTON/LYNCH TARMAC CAPER

Friday, August 4th, 2017

 

Where is the team of lawyers and a grand jury being set up to investigate this ? Thanks to Judicial Watch for persevering  in using a FOIA lawsuit to g

et the Justice Dept documents on the Bill Clinton/Loretta Lynch tarmac caper !

  Avoiding   FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) was the reason Hillary used a private server.  If she had used the government server for her government communications as she was required to do, all her communications would be available to a FOIA request.  How she got away with deleting by bleachbit her 33,000 emails  would be an ideal investigation for another special counsel and grand jury .     Let the games begin !!!     Nancy

Judicial Watch: Justice Department Blacks Out Talking Points on Lynch-Clinton Tarmac Meeting

AUGUST 02, 2017

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today announced that the Justice Department refuses to disclose the talking points developed by the Obama Justice Department to help it respond to press inquiries about the controversial June 27, 2016, tarmac meeting between Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.

The Justice Department heavily redacted the documents under Exemption b (5), which allows agencies to withhold draft or deliberative process material.  The blacked-out material centers around talking points drafted and used by Justice to respond to press inquiries about the Lynch-Clinton meeting.

The agency produced 417 pages of documents in response to Judicial Watch’s FOIA lawsuit (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:17-cv-00421) seeking:

  • All records and/or transcripts of a meeting held between Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton in June 2016.
  • All records of communication sent to or from officials in the Office of the Attorney General regarding the meeting held between Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton in June 2016.
  • All records of communication sent to or from officials in the Office of the Deputy Attorney General regarding the meeting held between Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton in June 2016.

L.A. MADE $1.3 BILLION IN ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT WELFARE PAYOUTS IN 2 YEARS

Friday, August 4th, 2017

 

This is taxpayer money that could instead be used for rebuilding our roads, bridges, airports,  medical  research, failing inner city school systems, job retraining programs, the list of worthwhile programs is endless.   Instead, the money is being spent on those who are here illegally.  Have you all heard of  Cloward-Piven, which is  overwhelming the system until it collapses !  
Earlier this evening, I posted  an article on California’s expansion of Medicaid (Medi-Cal).  Just one more example of overwhelming the system with people on welfare.     What is needed is job training programs to get  people out of poverty, not paying them to  stay in poverty.    I think it was Ben Carson  who said you don’t want to make people so comfortable in poverty that they stay in poverty !  One of our readers wrote to me today that she owns a small business and she offered a job to someone who declined  the job offer  because the person made more money staying at home and collecting welfare.   Nancy   

LA made $1.3B in illegal immigrant welfare payouts in just 2 years

     Illegal immigrant families received nearly $1.3 billion in Los Angeles County welfare money during 2015 and 2016, nearly one-​quarter of the amount spent on the county’s entire needy population, according to data obtained by Fox News.

The data was obtained from the county Department of Public Social Services — which is responsible for doling out the benefits — and gives a snapshot of the financial costs associated with sanctuary and related policies.

The sanctuary county of Los Angeles is an illegal immigration epicenter, with the largest concentration of any county ​in the nation, according to a study from the Migration Policy Institute. ​The county also allows illegal immigrant parents with children born in the United States to seek welfare and food stamp benefits.

Robert Rector, a Heritage Foundation senior fellow who has written extensive studies on poverty and illegal immigration, said the costs represent “the tip of the iceberg.”

MEDICAID EXPANSION – CALIFORNIA STYLE

Thursday, August 3rd, 2017

 

The expansion of Medicaid under Obamacare  has become a major sticking point in the senate’s attempt to craft a bill to replace Obamacare because many states have taken the Obamacare bait to increase their Medicaid roles.  The following article on California’s Medi-Cal program shines a bright light on how the expansion of Medicaid is endangering  our health care system.     Nancy 

Medicaid’s Potemkin Health Coverage

California is a case study: One patient suing the state says she went to Mexico to get her gall bladder out.

July 19, 2017  by Allysia Finley  Ms Finley is a editorial writer for the Journal

If ObamaCare’s expansion of Medicaid were measured merely by growth in enrollment and spending, California’s Medi-Cal program would rank as a huge success. Since 2012, Medi-Cal has added six million beneficiaries, primarily able-bodied adults of working age. Covering them last year brought California nearly $20 billion in additional federal funds. If Medi-Cal were a state, its population of 14 million would make it the fifth-largest in the U.S. The program’s $103 billion budget is about three times the size of Illinois’s general fund.

But despite the surge in enrollment and spending—or perhaps because of it—Medi-Cal has failed to fulfill its stated goal of improving health-care access for the indigent and disabled. A recent report from the Santa Clara County Civil Grand Jury highlighted the conundrum many of the state’s Medicaid enrollees face: “You’ve Got Medi-Cal, but Can You Get Medical Care?”

By extending Medi-Cal to younger, healthier people—many of whom could be better served by the kind of bare-bones private insurance that ObamaCare outlawed—California has made it harder for those who most need low-cost care to get it.

Medicaid operates as an open-ended entitlement, meaning the federal government covers a predetermined share of state spending, regardless of the total cost. Traditionally, the feds have matched California’s outlays dollar for dollar. States where the per capita income is lower receive a more generous match. Nevada, for example, receives about two federal dollars for each one it spends.

ACCESS ISLAM BEING TAUGHT IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS BY DEPT OF EDUCATION

Thursday, August 3rd, 2017

 

Thanks to Gadi Adelman for sharing this information that the Department of Education provides regarding the 5 Pillars of Islam  for our public school children. 
 Why is Islam being taught in our schools but no other information on other religions is permitted  ?  Why is Betsy DeVoss, the Education Secretary, silent about this ?   Nancy 

Teaching our children grades 5-12 in our Public schools. This is what Hitler did, he said, “Give me the children and I’ll change society in ten years.”

Access Islam? Mideast Religion of Islam Now Being Officially Taught in Public Schools Across US: Education Officials Silent on “Why” (Youtube)

CRN Politics 

It’s called “Access Islam” and it’s being pushed as an educational religious indoctrination program for millions of children in public schools across America.

Access Islam has been a growing effort, among the progressive left and the US government, to introduce the cult of Islam to millions upon millions of unsuspecting parents and school children, many of whom are not allowed to share their given Christian faith, in any form, while on public school grounds.

The initial phase of the instruction (or indoctrination) involves one of the most basic tenets of Muslimism, that being the five pillars of Islam.

According to the  Access Islam syllabus, “students explore and understand the basic beliefs of Islam as well as the Five Pillars that guide Muslims in their daily life” as follows:

1) belief

2) worship

3) fasting

4) Zakat

5) pilgrimage

END SUBSIDIES FOR CONGRESS ON OBAMACARE

Friday, July 28th, 2017

 

Since the senate seems to be incapable of drastically ending or altering Obamacare, this just may be the answer.  President Trump could end Obama’s gift to Congress by ending the subsidies Congress was given  to reduce the pain for them from the high cost of premiums for Obamacare.  Let Congress be impacted by the high cost of Obamacare  and perhaps that will add a little urgency to their voting.  Nancy

How Trump can win the ObamaCare fight: End the “friends and cronies” exemption for Congress

by John Fund   Fox News    July 28, 2017 

If President Trump wants to fulfill his repeated promise to end ObamaCare, his best course of action is a radical change in tactics that would hit members of Congress where it hurts – in their wallets. The 55-45 vote Wednesday by the Senate rejecting a straight repeal of ObamaCare makes it clear that the president needs to try something new.

With a mere stroke of his pen, President Trump could end the exemption that President Obama gave members of Congress and their staffs that makes them the only participants in the ObamaCare exchanges to receive generous subsidies from their employer (the American people) to pay for their health insurance. Nothing would better focus Congress’ attention on changing ObamaCare than being trapped in it just like other Americans.

When Vice President Pence was asked about the special exemption for Congress by Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Wednesday, he lamented that it was “pretty typical” for there to be “one set of rules for the American people and another for the political class here in our nation’s capital.” But he wouldn’t be pinned down over whether the Trump administration would act: “It would be (President Trump’s) decision to rescind that special treatment for members of Congress and their staffs,” he told Carlson

Well, it’s about time. Ending the special perk funded by taxpayers may represent the only leverage President Trump has to fulfill his promise to repeal ObamaCare.

Ending the special perk funded by taxpayers may represent the only leverage President Trump has to fulfill his promise to repeal ObamaCare.

Back in 2009, when ObamaCare was being debated, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) was able to insert a provision requiring all members of Congress and their staffs to get insurance through the ObamaCare health exchanges.

“The more that Congress experiences the laws it passes, the better,” said Grassley.

Although his amendment was watered down to exclude committee staff, it still applies to members of Congress and their personal staffs. Most employment lawyers interpreted that to mean that the taxpayer-funded federal health insurance subsidies dispensed to members of Congress and their personal staffs – which now range from $6,000 to $12,000 a year and cover about 70 percent of the cost of insurance premiums – would have to end.
