Demsí Medicare lie (Obama increases chances that seniors will die of a heart attack)
ny post ^ | 8/21/2012 | Betsy McCaughey

President Obama is criss-crossing the country, warning that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan would “end Medicare as we know it.” Attention, New York’s 3 million seniors: Don’t be fooled. It’s the Obama health law that destroyed Medicare, though the impact will not be felt for another year or more.

Scientific evidence indicates that the changes made by ObamaCare will shorten the lives of some elderly hospital patients and make it hard for Medicare enrollees to get treated. The only thing left of Medicare is the membership card.

ObamaCare cuts future funding for Medicare by over half a trillion dollars in the next 10 years. Most cuts are made by slashing what hospitals, physicians, hospice care and dialysis centers will be paid. Doctors will get less to care for a senior than for a patient on Medicaid and only a third of what a doctor will be paid to care for a patient with private insurance. New York, the hospital capital of the nation, will be especially hard hit.

Last year, Richard Foster, chief actuary for Medicare, warned Congress that seniors will have difficulty finding doctors and institutions to accept Medicare. Doctors who do accept Medicare will not want to spend time doing procedures such as hip replacements, when the pay is so low. Yet the law bars them from providing the care you want for an extra fee. You’re trapped.

A copy of this article needs to be printed and mailed to every household in the U.S.

This is the devastating future of medicine if Obamacare is allowed to stand and Medicare is not reformed. This won’t just affect Medicare recipients - but the rest of us as well with substandard care, staff, and equipment.

Finally a news source has exposed the lie this sorry trucker has been spitting out all over America.

Obama’s plan will destroy Medicare.

I cannot for the life of me imagine a man sorry enough to spread an poutright lie and then swear to it. Obama is no doubt in my mind one sorry piece of garbage.

Denver company has city award rescinded for bucking Obama health law

By Valerie Richardson

The Washington Times

Sunday, August 19, 2012

DENVER — The Newland family didn’t spend 50 years building a business here for the plaudits, but when a Denver City Council member moved to recognize them with an anniversary proclamation, the clan was flattered.

So it came as a disappointment last week when the Newlands learned that the council decided to cancel the honor, especially when they found out the reason: Their successful legal challenge against the Obama health care reform’s birth control, sterilization and abortion mandates.

Sad to say, but, you could put this in front of a dozen sheeperals and maybe 1 of them would not reject it out of hand -

0bamacare gives free medical care to all, regardless of cost, on demand and as you and your doctore determine you need it. That’s what they WANT TO believe, and they’ll refuse to believe anything else.

The ObaMao czars believe they will compel health pros to perform services - the ones their bureaucrats prescribe as "standard", all of them - and if the HC pros don't, they'll be penalized - including jail.

I predict doctors will be the first group to "go Gault" in growing, impossible to ignore numbers beginning now.
