The Waiting Dead – A Theme Park?

Wow…

VA secretary: Disney doesn’t measure wait times, so why should VA?
Washington Examiner, By Sarah Westwood (@sarahcwestwood) • 5/23/16 10:59 AM

Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert McDonald on Monday compared the length of time veterans wait to receive health care at the VA to the length of time people wait for rides at Disneyland, and said his agency shouldn’t use wait times as a measure of success because Disney doesn’t either.

“When you got to Disney, do they measure the number of hours you wait in line? Or what’s important? What’s important is, what’s your satisfaction with the experience?” McDonald said Monday during a Christian Science Monitor breakfast with reporters. “And what I would like to move to, eventually, is that kind of measure.”

McDonald’s comments angered House Speaker Paul Ryan, who tweeted out Monday afternoon, “This is not make-believe, Mr. Secretary. Veterans have died waiting in those lines.”

This is not make-believe, Mr. Secretary. Veterans have died waiting in those lines. https://t.co/OxfT3AYzTi— Paul Ryan (@SpeakerRyan) May 23, 2016

McDonald faced questions at the breakfast about the VA’s lack of transparency surrounding how long veterans must wait to receive care at VA facilities around the country. The agency has weathered controversy over the past several years due to its struggle to provide timely care for many patients.

The VA secretary said most veterans report being satisfied with their care and argued that the average wait time for a veteran seeking VA treatment is only a matter of days.

He said he did not believe a measure called the “create date,” which gauges a veteran’s wait time by counting from the day the veteran first requests care, was a “valid measure” of a veteran’s VA experience.

The Government Accountability Office released a report in April exploring the metric used to count a veterans’ wait time, called the “preferred date.” The measure does not count from the time a veteran first calls to make an appointment.

The Leftists Know that the VA is Obama Care once fully implemented.  They Know the Fraud, Waste and Abuse long documented at the VA will be present in Obama Care.  But most importantly They Know that once Obama Care is fully implemented, and funded through confiscatory tax penalties and punishments (which is really what this is all about), there is a deadly surprise waiting for you. 

The Wait.

Otherwise known as Dead Before Arrival.

“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.


“Every time I read about a Teabagger ranting about how socialized medicine will destroy this country I think of the VA system. There it is, a huge and vastly important universal healthcare system—government run, single payer and therefore socialist—right here in the brave and privatized United States: The Veterans Affairs hospitals.”

I personally find no story here… because this is not new to any of us who were PAYING ATTENTION when Government Run Health Care was being Forced upon this Great Nation.

However, for those of you just now waking up, the body of this Story is HERE. It’s worth the quick read and Illustrates the Full Out Campaign to Re-Write History so the Voting Population of the United States would beg for Socialism and the Government Take Over of our previously Private and best in the World Health Care System.

The linked Story is only a few of the Cheerleading quotes for Obama Care…  But you get the point.

When the Life of your Ideology comes First before All things, this is what you get.

Lies, Hiding the Truth and Manipulation of what small amount of Reality might escape the News Editors.

And yes Mr. Golob… it was those Damned TEABAGGERS ranting how Socialized Medicine will Destroy this Country.

Please Remember that.


Political Theater!

It dawned on me this morning that I’m qualified to be a contributor on any of the Cable News Networks.

I have some credentials… while meager, apparently that doesn’t matter.

What matters is that I use certain phrases that may be true but are completely meaningless… and that I use them over and over and over.

So there I was, watching Juan Williams, of Fox News Fame, describe the VA Scandal as “Political Theater”. The point he was trying to make, the point he is always trying to make, the reason Fox writes him a check… is that any investigation into anything, ever, which originates from Anyone Opposing Democratic Socialists in our Government and Their Schemes is… “Political Theater”.

The brilliance is Juan, et al., have used this ad nauseam and remained employed.

While Juan’s phrase “Political Theater” is simple, and apparently powerful (they are paying him to do it) it lacks a directness. In fact, it is so vague as to be void of substance.

ALL activity in Government is Political Theater.

Every Word spoken, every Action taken. The phrase is Omni-Applicable… thus meaningless.

And yet, Mr. Williams gets a check.

So I’m going to try it out;

The VA Scandal… “Political Theater!”
The IRS Targeting Scandal… “Political Theater!”
The NSA Domestic Spying Scandal… “Political Theater!”
The Benghazi Murder Scandal… “Political Theater!”
The Fast and Furious Scandal… “Political Theater!”
The You Didn’t Build That and Spread the Wealth Around outrage… “Political Theater!”
The Socialist Nationalization of General Motors Outrage… “Political Theater!”
The Drive to Repeal the Socialization of Medicine through Obama Care… “Political Theater!”
The Outrage over Killing of American Citizens with Drones… “Political Theater!”
The Drive to make America Energy Independent by the “Right”… “Political Theater!”

Bill Clinton Lying under Oath… “Political Theater!”
The Cold War… “Political Theater!”
World War II… “Political Theater!”
World War I… “Political Theater!”
The Civil War… “Political Theater!”

My Wife think’s I drink too much… “Political Theater!”

Fun huh?  I think I’m pretty good at this!

Please send checks directly to me.. I will also accept anything Fit for Human consumption with an alcohol content greater than 5%.
