Repeal It: ACA Even Less Effective as More States Mull Medicaid Opt-Out

Repeal It: ACA Even Less Effective as More States Mull Medicaid Opt-Out Kate Hicks Web Editor, Townhall.com Jul 03, 2012 11:41 AM EST For all the talk about the taxation issue associated with the ACA, its worth noting that a major storms a-brewin in the states over Medicaid expansion. In the five short days since the Supreme Court ruled that the feds couldnt withhold existing Medicaid funding from states that opt not to expand, many governors have expressed ambivalence about opening the rolls. As Katie mentioned yesterday, Rick Scott (Florida), Bobby Jindal (Louisiana), and Scott Walker (Wisconsin) have all flatly refused to expand their states programs. ...

Undoing Obamacare By Andrew B. Wilson on 7.2.12 Suddenly, everyone wants out. You would have thought that Chief Justice John Roberts had shouted "fire" in a crowded theater. In upholding Obamacare, he set off a headlong race for the exits by the same lobbying groups -- believe it or not -- that had cut deals with the administration to create the legislation. Back then, the lobbyists were telling each other: If youre not at the table, youre on the menu. Now the bodies are piling up in the doorway as those who pandered to the president trample over each other in their haste to get out of the blazing or crumbling structure that is Obamacare. To paraphrase Oscar Wilde ...
Government-Sponsored Study Destroys DEA’s Classification Of Marijuana
Post Date: 2012-07-05 12:34:49 by Brian S
A government-sponsored study published recently in The Open Neurology Journal concludes that marijuana provides much-needed relief to some chronic pain sufferers and that more clinical trials are desperately needed, utterly destroying the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agencys (DEA) classification of the drug as having no medical uses. While numerous prior studies have shown marijuanas usefulness for a host of medical conditions, none have ever gone directly at the DEAs placement of marijuana atop the schedule of controlled substances. This study, sponsored by the State of California and conducted at the University of California Center for Medicinal Cannabis Research, ...
Federal Judge Not Concerned Over Women’s Health and Botched Abortions
Post Date: 2012-07-03 17:39:43 by CZ82
Federal Judge Not Concerned Over Womens Health and Botched Abortions posted on July 3, 2012 by Giacomo Earlier this year, the state of Mississippi passed a law that would require every person who performs an abortion to be an OB-GYN that has hospital privileges in case of an emergency. State Representative Sam Mims said that the law was simple and straightforward in that it requires an abortionist to have hospital privileges in case of an emergency. He may have been referring to an incident that happened to a woman in Sharonville, Ohio who nearly died during an abortion because the doctor did not have hospital privileges. As the woman was coming out of anesthesia, she went into a ...
Family Doctors Seen as Winners as High Court Upholds Law
Post Date: 2012-06-29 12:37:50 by Brian S
When the Supreme Court upheld President Obamas health-care law yesterday, many interested parties had cause to celebrate. Among them were family doctors who stand to gain both influence and money from the decision. Specialists such as cardiologists and orthopedic surgeons worry they will fall in the losers camp. These doctors say they face reduced reimbursements, loss of autonomy to hospitals and, ultimately, fewer patients receiving their care. The Congressional Budget Office estimates the Affordable Care Act may cover more than 30 million uninsured people in the U.S. Keeping that care affordable means reining in medical and drug costs by reprioritizing some services. That ...
Wednesday, June 20, 2012Monsanto Faced with Paying 7.5 Billion Back to Farmers
Post Date: 2012-06-20 19:28:46 by Capitalist Eric
Monsanto may soon be forced to pay as much as 7.5 billion dollars back to the farmers who say that the mega corporation took their rightfully earned income and taxed their small businesses to financial shambles. It all started with a monumental lawsuit launched by over 5 million farmers against Monsanto looking to recover financial losses from ridiculous seed taxes that bankrupted many families. Back in April, a Brazilian court ruled that Monsanto absolutely was responsible for paying back the exorbitant amounts of cash to the farmers, ordering the company to issue back all of the taxes collected since 2004 a minimum of 2 billion dollars. Afterwards, Monsanto appealed the decision ...
The Ethics of Decoding the Genome of the Unborn
Post Date: 2012-06-11 19:39:05 by CZ82
The Ethics of Decoding the Genome of the Unborn June 11, 2012 by Giacomo Many people are hailing the recent report from a group of scientists at the University of Washington. They discovered a way to accurately determine the genome of an unborn baby without any invasive testing. When a woman is pregnant, 10% of her blood contains the DNA of the baby. Knowing this, the scientists took blood samples from pregnant moms around eighteen weeks into the pregnancy and ran a complete genome test on it. They also took saliva samples from the father and ran a genome test on him. Combining the two tests, they mapped out the genome of the unborn baby. To test the accuracy of their results, they ...
(RobamaCare cost cutting) Remove feeding tubes from the dying elderly (and get a cash bonus!)
Post Date: 2012-06-07 10:38:04 by hondo68
TIME Magazine is peddling a death agenda propaganda piece with a new issue that features these words on the cover: HOW TO DIE. Inside, the magazine promotes a cost-saving death agenda that encourages readers to literally pull the feeding tubes from their dying elderly parents, causing them to dehydrate and die. This is explained as a new cost-saving measure that drastically reduces return hospital visits by the elderly
yeah, because dead people dont return to the hospital, of course. Watch my full commentary on this special death panel issue of TIME Magazine at:http://tv.naturalnews.com/v.asp?v=53166F436FD2309EC97C414D01F7AB39 Or on YouTube ...
Salt, Bad for You? Nope, Never Was
Post Date: 2012-06-05 14:53:59 by Brian S
(Newser) Time to crack open those Sun Chips, folks: Looks like salt is not only good for you, avoiding salt may be bad for you. In a daring New York Times piece, Gary Taubes challenges the standard salt-is-deadly wisdom by rolling out a few studies and quoting a few experts. "This eat-less-salt argument has been surprisingly controversialand difficult to defend," he writes. "Not because the food industry opposes it, but because the actual evidence to support it has always been so weak." For 40 years, we've heard how salt raises our blood pressure and causes life-shortening hypertension. Turns out that's just a hypothesis, though, and studies ...
Feds Fine Utah School for Soda Machine, Declare Snickers Bars Nutritious (nanny state dumbasses)
Post Date: 2012-05-22 16:07:58 by hondo68
A school in Utah was recently fined $15,000 by the federal government for the crime of selling soda to students during lunch. The school used the money made from the sale of soda to fund school programs. According to federal rules, schools are only allowed to sell soda before and after lunch. The rule is vague and open to interpretation. For example, the way the rule reads you can buy before lunch starts a carbonated beverage, buy school lunch, sit down in the cafeteria, eat the school lunch and not be in violation, Davis High Principal Dee Burton told KUTV in Salt Lake City. It is OK to sell Gatorade and Snickers and Milkyway bars because they have nuts and ...
Amish Farm Kids Remarkably Immune To Allergies: Study
Post Date: 2012-05-05 14:35:41 by Brian S
NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Amish children raised on rural farms in northern Indiana suffer from asthma and allergies less often even than Swiss farm kids, a group known to be relatively free from allergies, according to a new study. "The rates are very, very low," said Dr. Mark Holbreich, the study's lead author. "So there's something that we feel is even more protective in the Amish" than in European farming communities. What it is about growing up on farms -- and Amish farms in particular -- that seems to prevent allergies remains unclear. Researchers have long observed the so-called "farm effect" -- the low allergy and asthma rates found among ...
Number Of US Newborns With Drug Withdrawal Triples
Post Date: 2012-04-30 19:03:03 by Brian S
CHICAGO (AP) -- Less than a month old, Savannah Dannelley scrunches her tiny face into a scowl as a nurse gently squirts a dose of methadone into her mouth. The infant is going through drug withdrawal and is being treated with the same narcotic prescribed for her mother to fight addiction to powerful prescription painkillers. Disturbing new research says the number of U.S. babies born with signs of opiate drug withdrawal has tripled in a decade because of a surge in pregnant women's use of legal and illegal narcotics, including Vicodin, OxyContin and heroin, researchers say. It is the first national study of the problem. The number of newborns with withdrawal symptoms increased from ...
FDA May Let Patients Buy Drugs Without Prescriptions; Move Would Increase Patients’ Out-Of-Pocket Costs
Post Date: 2012-04-30 12:27:03 by Brian S
In a move that could help the government trim its burgeoning health care costs, the Food and Drug Administration may soon permit Americans to obtain some drugs used to treat conditions such as high blood pressure and diabetes without obtaining a prescription. The FDA says over-the-counter distribution would let patients get drugs for many common conditions without the time and expense of visiting a doctor, but medical providers call the change medically unsound and note that it also may mean that insurance no longer will pay for the drugs. The problem is medicine is just not that simple, said Dr. Matthew Mintz, an internist at George Washington University Hospital. You ...
Terrifying New Trend: Grown Men Who Dig 'My Little Pony' (“bronies”)
Post Date: 2012-04-26 13:33:46 by hondo68
The easiest way to say it is just to say it: There are grown men out there who devote themselves to the rainbow-unicorn-sparkly-pastel fantasy world of the childrens TV show My Little Pony. And, more appallingly, its not done ironically they are proud of it. They call themselves bronies, a terrifying hybrid of bros and ponies. The shows producers and the network honchos are delighted by this unexpected turn of events: We heard during the first season that guys were chatting about it online, and it just snowballed so quickly, said showrunner Meghan McCarthy. No one saw this coming.* * *[Hub ...

Chicago Man Sues Purina, Wal-Mart Claiming 'Tainted' Chinese Treats 'Killed' His Dog

.. Chicago Man Sues Purina, Wal-Mart Claiming 'Tainted' Chinese Treats 'Killed' His Dog An Illinois man who claims tainted dog treats killed his Pomeranian has sued Nestle Purina and Wal-Mart for $5 million in federal court, becoming the latest dog owner to allege publicly that treats made out of chicken jerky from China have caused sickness or death. Dennis Adkins' lawsuit suit came as Sen. Sherrod Brown, D.-Ohio, renewed his call for the Food and Drug Administration to take action against what he said was "possibly contaminated" Chinese dog treats. During a Senate hearing Thursday, Brown urged the FDA to "be as aggressive as possible to find the ...

Score one for the hippies. New data released from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation showed that Marin County a famous bastion of Bay Area liberalism had the longest life expectancy of any U.S. county for men, and the second-longest for women. The people in Marin decided to live healthier, and they are getting their reward for their lifestyle, Dr. Ali Mokdad, whose team prepared the report, told the Mercury News. In parts of the southeastern U.S., however, the odds of living to a ripe old age arent quite so bright: Two counties in Mississippi Quitman and Tunica are among the five shortest life expectancies for both genders, as ...
What You Need to Know About Vaccinations: Are They Bad, Good, or is there a Middle Ground?

What You Need to Know About Vaccinations: Are They Bad, Good, or is there a Middle Ground? By Dr. Rajesh Vishwanathan on September 17, 2007in DISEASE, Vaccines The vaccination controversy is very sticky. But consider these facts dispassionately. It is a well-known fact that ever since mass vaccinations of infants began, there have been endless reports of serious brain, cardiovascular, metabolic disease like diabetes. In fact, the pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine has been used to induce encephalomyelitis, which is characterized by brain swelling and hemorrhage in the brain. Indiscriminate vacation has also been incriminated in the increase incidence of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) ...
Will the Supreme Court Let the Death Panel Stand?

Will the Supreme Court Let the Death Panel Stand? By David Catron on 4.16.12 @ 6:09AM Unless Obamacare is struck down in its entirety, IPAB will remain. With the possible exception of the individual mandate, the most pernicious contrivance of Obamacare is the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), the fifteen-member committee whose purpose is to ration health care to seniors by manipulating Medicare payment rates. Before the advent of Obamacare, only Congress had the power to make changes to Medicare's reimbursement scheme. Now, unless the Supreme Court strikes down the "reform" law in its entirety, that power will be transferred to the unaccountable political ...
‘Pink Slime’ Furor Means Disaster for U.S. Meat Innovator
Post Date: 2012-04-13 11:21:05 by Brian S
Thirty-one years ago, a young man with no college degree and the restless mind of a tinkerer started an unusual meat-processing company. Eldon Roths Beef Products Inc. bought tons of fatty scraps left over after cattle were carved into steaks and roasts. Roth concocted a way to use centrifuges to spin the fat away and quick-freeze the remaining meat into a pink pulp that made ground beef leaner when it was mixed in. He called it lean finely textured beef. McDonalds Corp. (MCD), Wal-Mart Stores Inc., Burger King Worldwide Holdings Inc., Kroger Co., and Yum! Brands (YUM) Inc.s Taco Bell chain used it. Roth opened plants in Texas, Kansas, Iowa, and Nebraska, ...
Shift workers 'risking' Type 2 diabetes and obesity
Post Date: 2012-04-13 09:34:35 by lucysmom
Shift workers getting too little sleep at the wrong time of day may be increasing their risk of diabetes and obesity, according to researchers. The team is calling for more measures to reduce the impact of shift working following the results of its study. Researchers controlled the lives of 21 people, including meal and bedtimes. The results, published in Science Translational Medicine, showed changes to normal sleep meant the body struggled to control sugar levels. Some participants even developed early symptoms of diabetes within weeks. Shift work has been associated with a host of health problems. Doctors at Brigham and Women's Hospital, in the US, were trying to study its ...
Individual Mandate: Republicans Were for It Before They Were Against It. In Fact, It Was Their Idea

Individual Mandate: Republicans Were for It Before They Were Against It. In Fact, It Was Their Idea In the Republican presidential debate Tuesday night, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich acknowledged, apparently in an unguarded moment, that a core element of "ObamaCare," the requirement that all Americans be enrolled in either a private or public health insurance plan, was a proposal originated by the Heritage Foundation, a powerful conservative think tank. Gingrich made the admission as he was denying former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney's accusation that the former Republican leader was once a supporter of the mandate. I'm sure the other presidential hopefuls ...
Cheney Too Old For Transplant? Bioethicist Weighs In
Post Date: 2012-03-25 15:55:26 by Brian S
Dick Cheney has just joined a list of high-profile people, including Steve Jobs, Mickey Mantle, Evil Knievel and David Crosby who, received a transplant and thereby created a controversy. Cheney received a heart on Friday from an anonymous donor at Inova Fairfax Hospital in Virginia after a 20-month wait. What is controversial about that? Cheney is 71 years old. He has been through numerous previous operations that indicate he has other serious medical problems. He has only been able to survive due to the implantation of a left-ventricular assist device (LVAD) a partial artificial heart -- that has kept him going long past the point where his own heart could have kept him alive. ...
