“Don’t we all Deserve Universal Healthcare?”

During an interview, Bill Ayers, the Leader of The Weather Underground which was a domestic terrorist group active during the 70’s and 80’s, asked an interesting question. “Don’t we all deserve Universal Healthcare?” otherwise known as Single Payer Government Run Health Care or the ultimate goal of Obamacare.

This Monday, June 30th, at the Albuquerque New Mexico VA Hospital, a man died when he collapsed in the cafeteria and the staff called an ambulance.

Allow me to rephrase what I just tapped out…

A Veteran of the US Military died Monday after he collapsed inside the VA Hospital and instead of carrying, wheeling, carting him to the ER which is reportedly a 4-minute walk… walk… or better yet summoning medical staff to assist him…  the cafeteria staff called an ambulance which took 30-minutes to arrive because according to the cafeteria staff it was the ‘policy’.

The man died.

The man died because of policy.

The man died because of bureaucracy.

The man died because reason and rational had vacated the very building which was best equipped to help him live.

The man died because some nameless, faceless, administrator made a rule and those government employees on duty feared the repercussions of not following that rule enough to allow a man to die in front of them.

I am not Surprised.  I am Sad.  But I am not Surprised.

When you are Everybody’s Problem, You’re Nobody’s Problem.

Welcome to Government Run Healthcare.

The VA is the template for the kind of Healthcare Socialists like Bill Ayers, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Chuck Schumer et al. are forcing upon the American People.

To believe it is better than what we had just a few short years ago is to rewrite history and fabricate horrors which never existed.

The United States once practiced a level of Health Care envied, and utilized, by the rest of the world.

But it didn’t fit the Progressive Socialist template.

Now there is an all out war to destroy that private practice of medicine and follow the ‘enlightened’ path administered by Democratic Socialists world over.

And, to realize the Socialist Utopian Dream of People like Bill Ayers and our current President…

The true, real life, factual, stories from VA Hospitals around the United States had to be hidden.  Or at least hidden long enough to keep the public from rising up in great enough numbers to prevent this last piece of Socialism the United States had yet to embrace from being implemented.  There is a crime here and it’s not the reality of government medicine, but rather the cover-up of that reality in order to complete the transition of the United States from a Free Market Capitalist country with Constitutionally Limited Government and Individual Liberty to a country ruled by some derivative of Marxist Governing Theory.

As Stalin famously said “To make an omelet you have to break a few eggs.”… or in this case die on the floor of the hospital cafeteria.

To answer Bill Ayers question; No, you rancid terrorist, no one deserves Universal Healthcare.

I have never done anything which would deserve such treatment, nor to my knowledge did the man who died on the floor… feet from those who would not help him.

And I never wished such a terrible idea upon the rest of the United States, even those who profess to desire it so very badly.

The nightmare that is Obama Care must be repealed.  There is simply no time to waste.

And, if anyone really cared about those Veterans who fought for our freedom and liberty… at least what of it remains… they would all stand up and demand the privatization of the VA.

If for no other reason, do it for the Veterans.

 


ObamaCare Penalizes the People It Claims to Help

ObamaCare: picking on poor people because, why not?

By Logan Albright

posted 061314

Remember how ObamaCare was going to make health care affordable and accessible for everyone? Remember how we were told we had to vote for a government takeover of one sixth of the American economy to level the playing field and make things fair for the nation’s poor? Remember how the rich had to be forced to pay their fair share for the common good?

Yeah, you can go ahead and forget all that. Not only hasn’t it happened, the actual results have been the direct opposite of what was promised.

A new report from the Congressional Budget Office reveals that the yearly penalty from ObamaCare’s individual mandate is expected to fall on 4 million Americans. Of those, 1 million are classified as low-income, and 200,000 are actually below the poverty line.

You read that right. The massive health insurance law that was ostensibly designed to make the health care market more fair and equal is actually imposing an additional tax on a million low-income people who can’t afford the inflated premiums they are legally required to buy. As is so often the case, big government is actively punishing the people it claims to want to help.

The CBO report also estimated that 30 million Americans would still be uninsured by 2016. For those of us who understand human behavior and incentives, this comes as no surprise. The fundamental flaw in central planning is the fiction that people, who have free will and minds of their own, can be manipulated by policy like pieces in a puzzle, to behave in ways that “society” deems optimal.

Of course, people don’t work that way, and studies like this one reveal the fallacy in treating individuals like numbers. As much as progressives would like it to be otherwise, you can’t plug human behavior into a bunch of fancy equations and expect a certain outcome. You can’t mandate health insurance on 300 million people and expect them to just roll over and comply.

Barack Obama has always been hobbled by his tendency towards micromanagement and his idea that societal problems can be “solved” like a Rubik’s Cube by a particularly clever operator. When 10,000 pages of regulations fail to get people to behave the way he wants them to, his answer is always another 10,000 pages.

To the rest of the nation, not chained to the ideological underpinnings of government health care, the fact that subsidized premiums provided on the health insurance exchanges have been vastly higher than promised was only to be expected. Individuals all over the country have been experiencing sticker shock as their health insurance bills skyrocket—that is, if they are not dropped from their plans outright. Only committed central planners seemed surprised that the imposition of a bloated, inefficient bureaucracy on the health insurance market would result in higher costs.

Big government programs never help the people they claim to help. They always end up rewarding well-heeled special interests and Beltway insiders instead of the truly needy.

Still, it’s rare to have so overt an attack on the poor. Most other social programs do indirect harm through limiting opportunities or prohibiting productive behavior with trumped up claims of “consumer protection.” ObamaCare attacks the livelihood of low-income families outright.

All the talk of amending or “fixing” ObamaCare is misguided in the extreme. The only logical course of action for dealing with a monster that openly, remorselessly hurts people is to kill it, and give freedom a chance.


Crying for Oversight of the VA

Is like telling a Judge that you are Going to Start overseeing your actions after being caught committing a crime.

The Veterans Administration IS the Government… every level of the Veterans Administration IS oversight.

It astonished many of us that all the stories of poor facilities and treatment which were regular news offerings for 50-years suddenly disappeared when President Obama wanted to Force Socialized Medicine on us.

It was like Magic.

And that’s why this VA story of “secret” waiting lists and the subsequent cover-up of the process Matters.

The Veterans Administration is the Shining Example of what is in store for all of us with the maturation of Obama Care… and that is exactly why the truth of Government Run Health Care had to be suppressed.

I would venture to say that those of you reading this knew the truth… for decades… and we were shouting it as loud as we could.  But the cover-up was not meant for us, it was meant to hide the realities the rest of us had gleaned over years and years of experience from the useful idiots.  The Administration knew full well that they were going to Force Obama Care on the Nation damn the consequences.

And that is also why the Leftists in this country will be fully absent during the exploration of Veterans Dying while waiting for Medical Care.

It is also why we have not heard any news about the Famous Waiting Lists for Care in Canada over the last 6 years… or the Dysfunctional National Health Service in the UK…

The Liberals who consider themselves Mainstream-Objective Journalists, along with their “Objective” Liberal Editors, cannot allow themselves to present the realities associated with Single Payer Health Care here, or anywhere else, because it does nothing but get in the way of their Ideological Goals.

However, I have an issue with placing all the blame on Shinseki.  Doing so distracts from the Bigger Issue.

The horrors associated with the VA… the NSA… the IRS… Fast and Furious… Benghazi…

They are all IDEOLOGICALLY driven.

They are all Socialist/Marxist/Progressive/Liberal/Fascist/Leftist in Nature.

Make no mistake, the Order to create Secret Waiting Lists for our veterans to get care came from on high and was executed by myriad Federal Workers of Like Mind. They were instituted because the Left knew that they needed to meet certain metrics in order to prevent comparisons of delays and bureaucratic red tape interfering with Medical Care being applied to their Nationalized Scheme of Obama Care.

I have talked about Obama Care being the “Crown Jewel” of Socialism…

When something is so very important, perhaps even paramount, to your Ideology what are the lives of A Few Good Men?
