Slowly but surely the truth is coming out about Obamacare: Conservatives were right.
Conservatives said Obamacare would cost trillions. Our intellectual and moral superiors on the left sneered.
The CBO reported this week that Obamacare will cost nearly $1.8 trillion in the first 10 years alone nearly double what Democrats said it would cost. And instead of reducing the deficit, Obamacare will increase the deficit.
Conservatives said Obamacare would cost people their health insurance. Our intellectual and moral superiors on the left sneered.
The CBO reported this week that Obamacare already has cost 4 million people their health insurance.
Conservatives said there would be less health care under Obamacare.
This week, MSNBC reported:
Most women can go as long as five years between cervical cancer screenings as long as they make sure to get both a Pap smear and an HPV test when they do get examined, a government panel said Wednesday.
The interval between cervical cancer screenings can safely be extended for women between the ages of 30 and 65, according to the new recommendations from the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force.

These screening procedures are STILL there for
Congress, and the pRes_ _dent, and their Staff,
and their mistresses, and Moslems and Amish.
Welcome to AuschwitzCare and your Regime Gestapo Doctor will be Mengele. Bend over Amerika and kiss your rears goodbye if the American people don’t stop the upcoming Holocaust.
They want you to die, it sOunds like. Probably eases the burden in pensions.
Kinda sounds like a war on women.
Soylent Green is next under Obama-Care.
And in tejas the Compassionate liberal cut care to women with cancer becasue of the states trying to slow abortion rates.
I think $9 per gallon gasoline is going to tip these guys over like Gurnsey's in a rocky field.
Wasn’t Papshmir in Naked Gun?
Be very afraid of the government and learn to grovel for small favors the bureaucrats give out. Control the masses. Retribution for past grievances for the protected class. Fundamental transformation.
I guess my timing is about right I’ll find out soon if I have prostrate cancer.
Ding ding ding. We have a winner
No one speaks of the fact that there are NOT enough doctors to care for all the new demands in care. So what if you have a card that says you are insured thru OCare. There will not be enough physicians to render that care. Many doctors who are taking on the liability for medical care for a $12.00 reimbursement from MedCal here in CA will throw in towel or have gone bankrupt Medicare is taking the same hit with many physicians NOT taking new patients. Obamacare is really NO medical care.
That makes sense, because the women might find a lump or something else wrong and want to see a doctor before their next scheduled visit,( possibly a year or more away), and it would lead to cluttering up the system with more frequent visits.
Patients will have to learn to wait their turn. - tom
You can have it, and it may not be detected in the biopsies because they missed the infected area. But not to worry if you have it, the cancer will spread, and eventually they will detect it.
This is not meant to discourage you only to alert you to the fact a negative reading may mean you don't have it or , it hasn't spread into the areas of where the biopsies are taken.
High PSA readings are not always a sign of cancer either.
In any event Obama's death panels won't have any trouble deciding how to treat the elderly with prostate cancer: Remove the prostate about $30,000 -radiate it, (42 days) about $175,000 . Good Luck, to all of us. - tom
My psa has been over 4 for a couple years this time it was 5.9, got a pca3 it was 41 so ultra sound and needle biop next.
I’ll be 70 next Jan, no worry’s. I think.
Another Publix skool gradumate!
Papshmir is the capital of Crapistan. Sheesh; they must not teach geoglyphy any more.
So very well said.
Better worry old fart, you don’t sound that “economical viable and sustainable”!
Worry is not productive, what comes my way will be sustainable.
I think $9 per gallon gasoline is going to tip these guys over like Gurnsey’s in a rocky field.
But when will gas get to $9.00/gal.?
Best wishes and thoughts to you.
My doctor told me the same thing - no need to come back for 5 years. I was astounded. I’ve had 3 procedures done in my lifetime due to abnormal smears and she says come back in 5 years? Seriously? I’m definitely finding a new doctor.
Not to worry though, there'll be no traffic. This war will be fought curb to curb.
Here’s how the new health system works for my family. Our family doctor of over 10 years quit his practice a year ago, and gave us 4 months of heads up. He had a nurse practitioner who he added in the last few years of his practice, and she took over his patients for him. One problem that arose was our insurance no longer covered visits with her. She is only open a few days a week.
So yesterday our young adult son, who had (still has) a cough, fever, and sore throat couldn’t see even the NP because the office wasn’t open. We were willing to pay for the service because at least we know her some. Instead, he had to go to a walk-in clinic to see a doctor (assuming he was an MD or DO) that we’ve never met or know anything about. Better health care? Not in my view.
