Obama Eyes Medicare Part D
Post Date: 2011-07-18 19:38:09 by CZ82
Obama Eyes Medicare Part D Posted by Tait Trussell, Jul 18th, 2011 President Obama wants to severely wound the most successful government entitlement program and thereby undermine freedom of choice while putting at risk new biopharmaceutical research. Even though he and many Democrats wont face the reality of the foreboding bankruptcy of Medicare and Social Security entitlement behemoths, Obama wants to make mincemeat of the prescription drug plan for seniors. That plan is known as Medicare Part D. What makes it so noxious to ultra-liberals is that it employs the power of the marketplace, not top-down central planning, as Grace-Maria Turner, president of the Galen ...
Survey: Physicians Prefer Medicare to Private Plans [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2011-07-14 09:22:35 by lucysmom
DENVER Physicians may not be enamored of Medicare, but they like it better than private insurance plans, according to a survey by the Medical Group Management Association. In MGMA's Payer Performance Studycovering more than 1,700 group practicesphysician groups ranked Medicare Part B well ahead of six large private insurers in terms of overall satisfaction. The survey asked members of MGMA to rank seven of the largest payers (Medicare Part B, UnitedHealthcare, Aetna, Cigna, Humana, Coventry, and Anthem) on payer communications, provider credentialing, contract negotiation, payment processing, systems transparency, and overall satisfaction. Medicare led the pack with ...
Agency warns giant plant that causes blindness, blisters spreading across NY
Post Date: 2011-07-05 17:42:19 by Happy Quanzaa
ALBANY, N.Y. A monster plant with flowers the size of umbrellas and sap that causes blisters and blindness is spreading across New York. It's the giant hogweed, an invasive species, and the Department of Environmental Conservation is asking for help locating outbreaks so they can send crews to nip it in the bud. The agency has a Giant Hogweed Hotline at 845-256-3111 for people to call and report sightings. Callers are asked to provide photos and site information, but avoid touching the plant. This is DEC's fourth year of controlling giant hogweed. Six crews totaling 14 people will visit most of the 944 known giant hogweed sites. Sites with less than 400 plants will be ...
Planned Parenthood of Indiana Admits to Undercover Callers That Women Don’t Need Them
Post Date: 2011-07-03 16:19:20 by CZ82
Planned Parenthood of Indiana Admits to Undercover Callers That Women Dont Need Them by John Hayward, 06/29/2011 Back in April, the Indiana state legislature voted to deny federal funding, including Medicaid, to Planned Parenthood, which has 28 clinics in the state. Governor Mitch Daniels signed the bill in May. Wisconsin and Texas have been considering similar measures, while Kansas and North Carolina have already passed legislation to defund Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in the state, performing more than half of Indianas abortions, according to their own statistics. Long-standing laws prohibit the use of federal funding for ...
RomneyCare Brings High Healthcare Costs, Calls for Price Controls
Post Date: 2011-07-01 21:23:45 by CZ82
RomneyCare Brings High Healthcare Costs, Calls for Price Controls Written by Michael Tennant Wednesday, 29 June 2011 00:00 Anyone who believes ObamaCare will mean lower healthcare costs and higher-quality healthcare has only to look to the state that has been suffering under the prototype for ObamaCare for the past five years to be disabused of such notions. Massachusetts healthcare costs far exceed those of other states; and now Bay State legislators and Gov. Deval Patrick (D) are resorting to the age-old, destined-to-fail approach to high costs: price controls. The result, of course, will be a shortage of quality healthcare. Since 2006, when then-Gov. Mitt Romney (R) signed ...
Medical secret police calling doctors
Post Date: 2011-06-27 18:42:30 by CZ82
Medical secret police calling doctors Thomas Lifson The federal government is conducting a stealth survey, calling up doctors and lying to them, seeking a way to catch doctors turning down Medicare and Medicaid patients, now that ObamaCare will be vastly expanding the number of people seeking treatment but paying with government programs that pay substantially less than private insurance. But don't worry, the new secret police promise that they will keep the data produced by their deceptive tactics confidential. The details are found in a New York Times story by Robert Pear: Alarmed by a shortage of primary care doctors, Obama administration officials are recruiting a team of ...
Chicago Trib Investigation Exposes Abortion Records Corruption
Post Date: 2011-06-25 18:40:22 by CZ82
Chicago Trib Investigation Exposes Abortion Records Corruption Monday, 20 June 2011 01:52 PM EDT Tom Ciesielka News - Joe Scheidler, national director of the Pro-Life Action League, is responding to the Chicago Tribune's article, "State abortion records full of reporting gaps," which reveals that thousands of abortion complications have gone unreported. The front-page article shows that not reporting abortions is not only illegal but unethical, because it's the only way that the state can know what types of complications have occurred, and how many women actually got abortions. Also, by not reporting abortions, the state may have allowed abortion providers to operate ...
Pfizer puts into place ban on arsenic-based chicken food
Post Date: 2011-06-17 01:34:01 by KellyD
New studies by the U.S. usFDA notes that arsenic is found in much of the chicken people eat. View of exactly how much arsenic is present tends to vary. However, the manufacturer of the arsenic-based chicken food additive Roxarsone (3-Nitro) is not taking any chances, so it has removed the element from U.S. racks. Article source - Pfizer proactively bans arsenic-based chicken feed in U.S. by Newsytype.com. United States Roxarsone sales stopped by Pfizer While the Food and Drug Administration could have eventually restricted the additive Roxarsone, Pfizer Inc. voluntarily decided to pull it off the U.S. industry, effective next month. While previous studies had indicated the arsenic ...
Targeted Drugs: The Future Of Cancer Treatment?
Post Date: 2011-06-10 08:22:20 by sneakypete
In the future fight against cancer, doctors are looking beyond afflicted organs -- whether lung, brain or stomach -- and finding new answers by disrupting the genetic mechanisms of specific tumor cells. Novel cancer drugs at the center of a major medical meeting this week point to a future in which patients are more routinely tested for gene mutations underlying their cancer to match them with a targeted treatment. That would represent a major shift from the current medical paradigm, in which a patient's disease is more closely identified with an area of the body to determine what battery of chemotherapy or other one-size-fits-all regimen is needed. "We are not waging a single ...
Forensic evidence emerges that European e.coli superbug was bioengineered to produce human fatalities
Post Date: 2011-06-06 10:13:10 by hondo68
(NaturalNews) Even as the veggie blame game is now under way across the EU, where a super resistant strain of e.coli is sickening patients and filling hospitals in Germany, virtually no one is talking about how e.coli could have magically become resistant to eight different classes of antibiotic drugs and then suddenly appeared in the food supply.This particular e.coli variation is a member of the O104 strain, and O104 strains are almost never (normally) resistant to antibiotics. In order for them to acquire this resistance, they must be repeatedly exposed to antibiotics in order to provide the "mutation pressure" that nudges them toward complete drug immunity.So if you're ...
E. Coli Outbeak in Europe Is the Deadliest in History
Post Date: 2011-06-04 15:08:11 by Brian S
The rapidly developing European E. coli outbreak that has killed 18 people and sickened thousands, including four suspected cases in the United States, has become the deadliest outbreak of E. coli in modern history. Where exactly people are being infected with the disease is still unknown, although 17 people fell ill after eating in the northern German city of Luebeck in May, according to the local media. Researchers from Germany's national disease control center are inspecting the restaurant in question. Other health experts suspect the disease first spread last month at a festival in the northern German city of Hamburg that was visited by 1.5 million people. But as of yet, there is ...
Health Secretary Andrew Lansley: funding crisis threatens the NHS

Health Secretary Andrew Lansley: funding crisis threatens the NHS The National Health Service is facing a £20 billion-a-year funding black hole that will threaten its founding principles unless the Coalitions controversial reforms are brought in to prevent it, the Health Secretary has warned. Lansley has been blamed for the poor communication of the aims of the reforms In an article for The Daily Telegraph, Andrew Lansley says the core values of the NHS are under threat as never before from a financial crisis that will see annual health spending double to £230 billion a year without urgent reform. While insisting he would never privatise the NHS, Mr Lansley ...
Doctor in the House
Post Date: 2011-05-28 09:15:04 by CZ82
Doctor in the House By Bob Weir The above title refers to a recent book written by Congressman Michael Burgess, 26th District in Texas. Dr. Burgess, who for 25 years was a practicing physician (OB/GYN) in North Texas, ran for Congress in 2002 against a famous name in Republican politics. House Majority Leader Dick Armey announced in late 2001 that he would not run again. His son, Scott Armey, the presumptive heir to the seat, began campaigning for the GOP nomination. Burgess, who relates in the book the fire in the belly he experienced after the 9/11 terrorist attack, began to seek advice on how to run a political campaign. One of his most enthusiastic supporters was Texas State Senator ...
Over Half of All Obamacare Waivers Given to Union Members
Post Date: 2011-05-19 20:06:55 by CZ82
Over Half of All Obamacare Waivers Given to Union Members 9:20 AM, May 16, 2011 By MARK HEMINGWAY In what is fast becoming a weekly event, the Obama administration granted 200 more companies waivers from the Democrats' sweeping health care law in the Friday night news dump. That brings the number of companies receiving waivers to 1,372. (You can get a full list of the companies exempted here.) Not surprisingly, it helps to be a Democratic ally when seeking a waiver. The Republican Policy Committee reports that over half of the workers that have been exempted so far belong to unions: The plans newly approved for waivers cover more than 160,000 people, bringing to nearly 3.1 ...
The ObamaCare Escape Hatch
Post Date: 2011-05-19 17:02:14 by CZ82
The ObamaCare Escape Hatch Joseph Smith The rush to obtain waivers from ObamaCare will not be receding any time soon. A recent New York Times column, highlighted at the Washington Examiner, describes the push by nursing homes to "seek a reprieve" from the health care law. Nursing homes employ low-wage workers with minimal or no health care coverage, and Medicaid and Medicare "do not pay them enough to offer their employees medical coverage," the Times relates. Nursing homes are now knocking on the waiver-office door: Starting in 2014, the law will require employers with 50 or more full-time employees to offer affordable coverage or risk paying a penalty. For a ...
The Ever-Shifting Price of ObamaCare
Post Date: 2011-05-14 07:12:51 by CZ82
The Ever-Shifting Price of ObamaCare By Jon N. Hall One reason the price of a new Cadillac isn't higher is because not everyone wants a new Cadillac -- at least not if they themselves have to pay for it. But if everyone were in the market for a new Cadillac, one could be assured with metaphysical certitude that the price would "necessarily skyrocket." As it is with the Cadillac, so it is with everything else: Limited supply and soaring demand make for soaring prices. But defenders of ObamaCare tell us that the dynamic at play in the price of everything else, including Cadillacs, doesn't work for health insurance. They say that the price of health insurance will fall ...
IPAB Is an Acronym for 'Death Panel'
Post Date: 2011-04-22 15:37:40 by CZ82
IPAB Is an Acronym for 'Death Panel' By David Catron on 4.22.11 @ 6:09AM Contemplating the 2012 election that can already be seen looming on the distant horizon, the President's advisors were no doubt hoping that the "death panel" debate was
dead. But Obama himself inadvertently resurrected it when, in response to Republican budget proposals, he claimed that Medicare costs will be kept under control by the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB). Obamacare opponents have been screaming about this committee since it was first added to the "reform" bill. And, since that time, anyone with the temerity to call it by its proper name -- death ...

Statists and the Racial 'Health Gap'
Post Date: 2011-04-19 15:16:03 by CZ82
Statists and the Racial 'Health Gap' By Robert Weissberg I often speculate that deep in the bowels of the Obama administration there exists an obscure office charged with inventing egalitarian schemes to increase American dependency on government. Ignore the high-sounding "fairness" and "equality" rhetoric. The President's minions just cannot stop pushing, even boldly lying until the last vestiges of limited government and individual initiative are history. The latest eruption of this endeavor was recently announced by Dr. Howard Koh, Assistant Secretary of Health and Human Services: the federal government would close the health gap between ...
Free clinic draws thousands to Oakland Coliseum [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2011-04-16 10:35:50 by lucysmom
This was the scene every morning at the Oakland Coliseum from Saturday to Tuesday - a four-day mass free clinic put on by Remote Area Medical, a nonprofit that provides free medical care to people in isolated areas around the world and in the States. The organization usually provides care in extremely impoverished parts of the world, but it was invited to the Bay Area by the state's association of oral surgeons. With the help of thousands of medical and administrative volunteers, more than 3,000 patients are being served this week. But by Tuesday, many of the medical volunteers have gone back to their regular jobs, and fewer volunteers means fewer patients can get through the doors. ...
New HHS Plan for Health Redistribution
Post Date: 2011-04-12 18:55:18 by CZ82
New HHS Plan for Health Redistribution Chuck Roger Can government make all people equally healthy? The U.S. Health and Human Services Department has announced a new plan aimed at doing precisely that. The HHS "action plan" will allegedly "reduce health disparities among racial and ethnic minorities." A "health disparity" is defined as "a particular type of health difference that is closely linked with social, economic, and/or environmental disadvantage." While the HHS plan correctly points out that minorities generally suffer poorer health and lower access to good medical care than do white Americans, the plan's "action steps" are ...

Medicare study on 'adverse events' in hospitals is finally released Rick Moran Delayed because the American Hospital Association doesn't want you to know how dangerous some hospitals might be to your health - even survival, - a long awaited study on what the government terms "adverse events" in hospitals has been released by HHS. Its conclusions will shock you: Of 1 million elderly and disabled Medicare patients hospitalized annually, 13.5 percent - or 135,000 people - experience an adverse event, with associated costs of $4.4 billion, according to a November 2010 report from the inspector general of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Among people of ...

Things Planned Parenthood's 'Truth Team' Forgot to Mention By Susan E. Wills Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) has dispatched a "Truth Team" to rally opposition to the Pence Amendment (H.R. 1, sec. 4013), a measure to stop federal funding of PPFA and its 102 affiliates. But not everything said by PPFA officials and sympathetic media has been the whole truth and nothing but the truth. In the interest of an informed debate about taxpayer funding of PPFA, a few omissions and potentially misleading statements are addressed below. Claim: "This is about women's health more than abortion" (Cecile Richards, PPFA President) This was quoted by ...
What Planned Parenthood Doesn't Want You To Know

The truth about Margaret Sanger and Planned Parenthood At a March 1925 international birth control gathering in New York City, a speaker warned of the menace posed by the "black" and "yellow" peril. The man was not a Nazi or Klansman; he was Dr. S. Adolphus Knopf, a member of Margaret Sanger's American Birth Control League (ABCL), which along with other groups eventually became known as Planned Parenthood. Sanger's other colleagues included avowed and sophisticated racists. One, Lothrop Stoddard, was a Harvard graduate and the author of The Rising Tide of Color against White Supremacy. Stoddard was something of a Nazi enthusiast who described the eugenic ...
