Something to chew on

I am writing this blog because there has been some strange things happening in the world of health care and medical treatment. I believe it should be looked into more than a sweep of the eye. I will not cover everything but I do hope that this will open our eyes to what our Own Government is doing to the people here in America. And friends, if you truly love your elderly or terminally ill child or adult this is more than worth looking into. I thought that we elected officials to help and stand for the people. When everyday new legislation is signed behind the back of every American. Calling it CHANGE for a New America. Not wanting to get off the meaning of this blog.
Have we the people become so brainwashed, hoodwinked or stupid to the point that we can no longer see the the red flags being waved. It seems that every time this Government or President wants something signed into law, they avert attention away from it  by causing chaos somewhere. And people if you think that our Government would not do such a thing you have to be more than the stupid person they think you are, and you can't fix stupid. Folks the lies and deceptions of this Government we have today is at an all time worse since the Country was founded. No I am not saying this because our president is half black and white. It is because our politicians have been black and white for years Dems and Repubs. Folks corrupt is corrupt no matter how we say it or spell it.

Lets look at a couple of things about the affordable care act/obamacare.

A few years ago, when the Obamacare/affordable care act was being introduced, everyone was talking about how and when it would effect those who signed up or became part of the plan. Folks as we all know, The affordable care act is a sham. I have had many nurses come up against me about Obamacare and what it really says it will do to those who are terminally ill, elderly, new borns with birth defects, and even abortions, saying that it is not so or mandated for any of the above. You ask them have you read the affordable care act and they will answer no. Folks at one time or the other everyone (EVERYONE) will have (or be effected by) Obamacare, even those who think they are safe because they work for the Federal Government.

From the Illinois Review

By Nancy Thorner -
Obamacare will affect senior and young people disproportionally when it hits with full force next year.  Knowledgeable seniors already know to expect less than in the past because of the cuts to future Medicare funding payment for more than half of the Obamacare health law. They also know that better care will not be forthcoming even though Insurance rates will increase.
Consider Hospitals: They will have $247 billion less to care for the same number of seniors than if Medicare had not been passed, resulting in a greater workload of patients for available nurses. Reducing nursing care will likewise result in elderly patients having a lower chance of survival during their hospital stay.Regarding the term "death panels", which has been bandied about, and denied by the Obama administration, Obamacare calls for the establishment of a Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute for the government to determine which treatment works best so money is not spent on less effective treatment.  Although Obamacare makes clear that the secretary of heath and human  services may not use research data from the new institute in a manner that treats the life of elderly, disable, or terminally ill individual as lower in value than that of an individual who is younger, non-disable or not terminally ill, that dictate comes with a qualifier that leaves the health secretary with the power to use government-provided research data to determine whether "alternative treatments" are effective in extending the life of the elderly, disabled, or terminally ill. young are in for an even bigger surprise.   A report released on March 6th by the House Committed on Energy and Commerce indicated that "while the majority of Americans will likely see their healthcare premiums increase, no one will swallow the cost burden more than young Americans."  Concluded by the House Committee Report is that young Americans could see an increase as much as 203%.Such an increase could break the bank for young adults just starting out on their own.  Take the city of Chicago, the average current health care premiums of young Americans is $756.  Under Obamacare it will go up to $2,268, an increase of 202%.Three reasons are given as to why young Americans will be disproportionately affected by Obamacare: 1.  Obamacare mandates that all Americans pay healthcare premiums regardless of anticipated medical expense.  Young Americans must subsidize retirees who use healthcare far more often to level the insurance price disparity between younger and older Americans.2.  Obama mandates certain health services be covered by health insurance.  These include coverage for preventive and wellness services, chronic disease management, rehabilitative and habilitative services, and many more.  In short,m the more categories you are forced to cover, the more expensive your premium will be.  No more affordable catastrophic plans.3.  The total cost of new taxes and fees on drug manufacturers, devise manufacturers, and health care plans is $165 billion.  This will ultimately be passed on to the consumer in higher premiums.The same report also brings bad news for families and indicates that the cost of family premiums could rise to $7,186 in the next decade. Americans still believe President Obama's initial claims that healthcare plans could be kept if liked and that premiums would go down while the level and quality of care would improve.When the price hikes do occur, might it be disingenuous to continue to call Obamacare the "Affordable Care Act"?

As the pro-life movement fights to keep abortion out of the health-care reform bill, an undercover attack on the elderly may be taking place unnoticed.

At issue is a provision that calls for end-of-life counseling of senior citizens every five years. That counseling can include topics such as how to decline nutrition and hydration, antibiotics and basic care treatments for specific conditions such as flu or pneumonia, and how to choose palliative and hospice care for the terminally ill.

“I’ve read about a third of HR 3200 and the counseling parts are designed to encourage euthanasia,” claimed Dr. Katherine Schlaerth, an associate professor of family medicine at Loma Linda University School of Medicine. “Seniors will be counseled every five years, and more often if they get sicker.”

Schlaerth, who emphasized that she does not speak for Loma Linda University, said that a frail, elderly, ill and depressed patient or that patient’s family “may easily agree to withhold antibiotics or fluid without realizing the full implication.”

“Patients who have a worsening of their chronic condition, but who may not even be pre-terminal, are included in this strong-arm counseling, and their respect for authority figures could pave the way for agreement with cessation of care not in their interest at all,” Schlaerth said. “Health-care providers, meanwhile, may be forced to give counseling directly opposed to their religious or moral beliefs.”

Key lawmakers are in agreement with Schlaerth. “Section 1233 encourages health-care providers to provide their Medicare patients with counseling on ‘the use of artificially administered nutrition and hydration’ and other end-of-life treatments and may place seniors in situations where they feel pressure to sign an end-of-life directive they would not otherwise sign,” said the House Republican leader, John Boehner, R-Ohio, and the Republican Policy Committee chairman, Thaddeus McCotter, R-Mich., in a July 23 statement. “This provision may start us down a treacherous path toward government-encouraged euthanasia.”

Death as Cost SavingsAt first glance, the counseling of elders for care options seems like an innocuous requirement. But Schlaerth says the purpose of the counseling has darker roots.

“The real reason for these draconian provisions directed against elders who are not terminal, I believe, is to save on Social Security payments as well as Medicare payments,” Schlaerth said. “The math is obvious. If you kill the disabled and give ‘quality preventive care’ to the well, your health-care statistics will look excellent.”

Bill May, chairman of Catholics for the Common Good, also views the mandatory counseling sessions as an outrageous cover to introduce assisted suicide.

“We need to pay attention to issues related to shortening the lives and hastening death for the elderly, infirm and disabled – another way of getting rid of undesirable, non-useful and costly people,” he said. “This bill creates a platform for assisted suicide for the elderly, infirm and disabled at times they are most vulnerable, depressed and open to suggestions of ending their lives early. Compassion & Choices, the former Hemlock Society, wants to get into the end-of-life counseling business, and it looks like the health-care bill will open the door for them to become government contractors as purveyors of the culture of death.”

The legislative language of the bill regarding counseling is vague and open to interpretation. “I’m a lawyer, and I find this language incomprehensible,” stated Wesley J. Smith, associate director of the International Task Force on Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide. “I believe it is done maliciously. What is clear is that seniors will receive counseling – read ‘re-education’– every five years or whenever their health status changes. The point is to reduce cost. While the language doesn’t require it, these mandatory sessions will often be directed towards not wanting care, in much the same way that genetic counseling of a mother carrying a Down [syndrome] fetus often is directed toward abortion.”

Smith said patients could be referred to organizations like the assisted suicide advocacy group Compassion & Choices to help sort out their choices. “In practice, if not in law, ‘counseling’ will usually be a one-way street,” he said.

Compassion & Choices is an organization that describes itself as working to improve care and expand choice at the end of life. “Wesley J. Smith says the bill is ‘incomprehensible,’ which may explain why he repeatedly misstates what the bill does,” said Steve Hopcraft, a spokesman for Compassion & Choices. “It’s a myth that C&C or any organization [would] be the counselor. The bill specifically says M.D. or nurse practitioner.”

Section 1233 does state the consultation will be performed by a medical provider; however, included in the topics to be discussed is direction to provide “suggested people to talk to” and “a list of national and state-specific resources.”

Rationed Care 
Concerns about Obama’s health-care reform adversely affecting older Americans are not new. Earlier this year, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (the “Stimulus Bill”) appropriated $1.1 billion for research into “comparative effectiveness,” which compares clinical effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of medical treatments, procedures and strategies. One aspect of this comparison is a concept called “Quality Adjusted Life Years,” where the value assigned to life varies with the health state of the person. This method is controversial because it means that some people will not receive treatment if the calculated cost is not warranted by the benefit to their quality of life.

Burke Balch, director of the Robert Powell Center for Medical Ethics at the National Right to Life Committee, explained that a person’s Quality of Adjusted Life Years determines if a procedure is allowed. “Of significant concern is the phrase ‘comparative effectiveness,’” he said. “This becomes [how] you end up discriminating against a disability. The language in the health-care bills being considered by the House and reported out of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee can be used for wide-open interpretation of cost-effectiveness leading to denial of treatment based on quality of life. The funding for the promises made in these bills cannot be sustained, and that will create the atmosphere for rationing.”

May agrees and says that health-care rationing takes place in Oregon, one of two states where physician-assisted suicide is legal. People fighting life-threatening illnesses there regularly receive letters saying that the state insurance plan would not cover their medication but would pay for a lethal prescription to end their lives, he said.

Boehner and McCotter also warn that with Oregon and Washington having legalized assisted suicide, “Section 1233 could create a slippery slope for a more permissive environment for euthanasia, mercy killing and physician-assisted suicide because it does not clearly exclude counseling about the supposed benefits of killing oneself.”

Calling into question is the fact that I believe it is mandated to do away with the elderly, terminally ill and others. It isn't a black or white assessment of people, it is happening to all races. Red, yellow, black or white. Now what makes this all if I can use the word fishy, is those who are calling the shots. Doctors, Nurses, Police officers as well as the military takes an oath to serve and protect, and go to any means to save a life now to the point let's take a life to save a life, using the elderly and terminally ill as examples.  We have ourselves let the Government take over our lives to the point we have no rights. They are having to send assessment to a panel to see who lives and dies!!
My wife and I just in the last three or so months have lost loved ones as well as friends to suspicious circumstances. With the exception of one he had diabetes. He goes to the hospital with something they can't  find a diagnosis for, they begin to treat him with antibiotics place him on a respirator and then say they can't find whats wrong and pull the plug! Suspiciously after giving treatment his kidneys begin to shut down and as most say he isn't going to make it. I myself had a friend the same age as I am 55 go in for a hip replacement then the next morning he's dead. Now we have a friend who went for a knee replacement only to take a turn for the worse they've called in hospice and are seeking much prayer. 
Friends, I will say this. We will never never know the extent in which our government will go. The NWO which is another blog itself for another time, but let me say this, The NWO, Rothchilds, etc, is ALL about controlling the world's population.
Do I find this quite suspicious? Yes I do, but it is something for you to chew on. Search it and see.
