  • New single-payer bill intensifies Newsom's political peril (Calcare)

    SACRAMENTO - A group of Democratic state lawmakers introduced legislation Friday to create a single-payer health care system to cover all Californians, immediately defining the biggest health policy debate of the year and putting enormous political pressure on Gov. Gavin Newsom. The Democratic governor faces the increasingly likely prospect of a Republican-driven recall election later this year. The single-payer bill adds to his political peril from the left if he doesn’t express support, and from the right if he does. State Assembly member Ash Kalra, author of AB 1400, said the coronavirus pandemic has exposed a broken health care system...
  • CBO: If Democrats Push Socialized Medicine, Get Ready For Rationing

    CBO’s work provides important context about Democratic health-care proposals, including the end goal for most on the left: a full government takeover of health care.Amidst all the pre-holiday jockeying over an economic “stimulus” package, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released a little-noticed report with big implications. More than 18 months after CBO issued a publication on single-payer health care with very little specificity, last month the budget analysts published a 200-plus page report giving more detail about the potential impact of a move to a government-run health system.Joe Biden claims his administration will not implement a single-payer plan, even though...
  • How Democrats Would Make Hospitals’ Corona Cash Crunch Worse

    The types of financial shocks hospitals currently face illustrate the problems inherent in Democrats’ proposed expansions of government-run health care. The coronavirus pandemic has inflicted such vast damage on the American economy that one damaged sector has gone relatively unnoticed. Despite incurring a massive influx of new patients, the hospital industry faces what one executive called a “seismic financial shock” from the virus. The types of shocks hospitals currently face also illustrate the problems inherent in Democrats’ proposed expansions of government-run health care. Likewise, the pay and benefit cuts and furloughs that some hospitals have enacted in response to these...

    Italy, the world’s worst-affect country by the coronavirus pandemic, reported a massive jump in the number of deaths that rose by 793 to 4,825 on Saturday, marking it the largest one-day rise since the contagion spilled over into the European economy. The Civil Protection Agency said that confirmed cases rose to 53,578 from 47,021, There were 2,857 people in intensive care, up from 2,655. Lombardy, the northern Italian region around Milan, remains in a critical situation, with 3,095 deaths and 25,515 cases. In this dire situation, Russia’s Defence Ministry said on Sunday, President Putin has ordered the Russian military to...

    The CDC and its response to coronavirus has provided Americans with a small taste of what life under a government-run, single-payer healthcare system would be like, with the bureaucrats who make decisions that have life-or-death impacts reigning supreme in regard to what care will be provided and who will be allowed to get treatment. Who wants more?

    Daniela De Rosa, a 43-year-old veterinarian in Italy's southwest Campania region, made a video message over the weekend as she was hospitalized with COVID-19. Her video plea has gathered much attention in Italy, which has just surpassed China in the number of reported deaths from the new coronavirus. "I've been in isolation in a hospital room for so many days I've lost count," she says. "I have no contact with anyone other than doctors twice a day." "Very few people understand what's happening. I want people to see I'm suffering," De Rosa continues. "Every single individual must stay home and...

    AltNewsMedia ^ | 3/12/20 | Unknown
    As the impact of the Corona Virus (Covid-19) continues to grow, nowhere in Europe has been more affected than Italy, and in particular northern Italy. With a complete lockdown announced by the Italian Government, everyday life for Italians has ground to a halt as the rise in cases of Wuhan-Flu continues. This has raised the question of why Italy has suffered more than other countries to date? AltNewsMedia has a theory as to what may lie behind this. Many Italians in Northern Italy have sold their leather goods and textiles companies to China. Italy then allowed 100,000 Chinese workers from...

    Health officials in Italy have issued guidelines for rationing care as hospitals there struggle to keep up with the surge of patients infected with the coronavirus. Doctors are being told that they'll likely need to deny care to senior citizens and those with other health conditions as the virus explodes across the nation. Italy has been rocked by the still not-well-understood COVID-29, with more than 1,200 confirmed cases and 827 deaths—second only to China—and 16 million residents currently under quarantine. An article published by the Italian College of Anesthesia, Analgesia, Resuscitation and Intensive Care (translated here by Yascha Mounk) warns...

    As I watched my neighbor put her dog’s poop in a single-use plastic baggy, I thought about split pants in China. When my wife and I got off the plane, 18 years ago, to adopt our first daughter, we were taken aback by the split pants. Split pants are (or at least were, back then) pants the children wear that are open in the crotch area. That allows them to urinate or defecate unobstructed, onto the street or wherever they may be. The theory is that eventually they will learn to “aim it at the toilet” or something to that...

    Republicans love to wail and gnash their teeth at the concept of a single payer for healthcare. And they should — the U.S. government would certainly destroy the quality of our medicine and shorten lives. The miracle of American healthcare today would be long gone with the creation a vertically integrated system run by Uncle Sam. As Ronald Reagan used to joke, the scariest words in the English language are, ‘We’re the government and we’re here to help’. However, hypocrisy is not something to be lost on any politician. So, it does not come as a surprise that the GOP...

    Video from 1993 has re-emerged showing Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) backing single-payer, government-run health care — though the current Speaker of the House claims to oppose that policy today. Pelosi told a news conference: “I remain a staunch and ardent supporter of the McDermott-Conyers bill.” She was referring to H.R. 1200 of the 103rd Congress, the “American Health Security Act of 1993,” which proposed a “single-payer,” government-run health insurance system.

    On Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s “The Lead,” 2020 presidential candidate South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D) stated that fellow 2020 candidate Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has been “extremely evasive” on whether her Medicare for all plan will raise taxes for the middle class. Buttigieg said, “Senator Warren is known for being straightforward, and was extremely evasive when asked that question, and we’ve seen that repeatedly. I think that if you are proud of your plan and it’s the right plan, you should defend it in straightforward terms. And I think it’s puzzling that when everybody knows the answer to that...

    This is a dangerous time for comedians who make inappropriate remarks, putting Stephen Colbert in an especially precarious position. On Tuesday Mr. Colbert welcomed presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass) to his “Late Night” television program on CBS. Mr. Colbert then engaged in a conversation which many journalists find deeply offensive when he pressed their favorite “ideas candidate” to explain how taxpayers will bear the cost of her ideas. After a pleasant several minutes of discussion Mr. Colbert told the senator that the “most radical thing that you’re proposing is Medicare for All.” The comedian then continued where friendly...

    Poor John Delaney. If he weren’t a bald, middle-aged, straight-white-male centi-millionaire who used to be a congressman from Maryland, he might be getting some real traction in the moderate lane of the Democratic primary. On night one of the second Democatic debate, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren were the only candidates on stage polling in the double digits, essentially tied nationally for second place. But rather than spar with one another, they banded together to fend off criticism from the other candidates, who tried to distinguish themselves as more moderate and more electable than Sanders, the self-described socialist, and Warren,...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) appeared on CNN's "State of the Union" with Jake Tapper to discuss an array of issues. One of the topics that came up was Medicare For All.Tapper played a clip of former Vice President Joe Biden in Michigan talking about how it's impossible to implement Medicare For All without raising the taxes on the middle class."Well, I find that people say they're for Medicare For All but they're not going to tax the middle class because we don't need to do that. Come on," Biden said. "What is this, a fantasy world here?"Sanders finally admitted what...

    Medicare for All”. Who can argue with that? No more struggles with medical care. No more worries about cost or insurance. You simply go to the doctor … and it’s free. Why SHOULD you have to worry about money? There are so many fallacies here. One you will hear little about in the coming presidential campaign: the rights of doctors. Also the rights of nurses, and all the allied health care professionals. Kamala Harris — the last I checked — was the new front runner for the Democratic Party, at least according to the media. A few weeks back, Harris...

    Did Democrats learn a lesson about attacking the Hyde Amendment in 2016? A new press from conservative states to restrict abortion has led at least one Democratic presidential candidate to repeat that strategy. Elizabeth Warren declared today that abortions should get direct federal funding and that Congress should pass “federal statutory rights” to abortion on demand.You know what would come in handy for that? Medicare for all: “These extremist Republican lawmakers know what the law is — but they don’t care,” Warren wrote. “They want to turn back the clock, outlaw abortion and deny women access to reproductive health...

    I give Bernie Sanders a lot of credit for being honest about his political beliefs and intentions. Not only is he openly socialist, he also is open about his desire to stick it to taxpayers to pay for his dreams. Best of all, his honesty can be used against all the other Dems running for president supporting Medicare for all.   Yesterday, in a TV interview in Iowa, he admitted that Medicare for all would not onlyend private insurance, but that people would pay higher taxes to pay for it. Here is a two-munute video from Channel 8 in...

    With Sen. Bernie Sanders introducing a new “Medicare for All” bill this month and several other Democratic presidential candidates co-sponsoring it, health care is once again a top campaign issue. The Democratic Party’s Socialist wing has hijacked the health care debate, and a closer examination of Medicare for All reveals its grim prognosis.This plan is co-sponsored by four other senators running for president: Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Cory Booker. It represents a radical change in how Americans pay for and receive health care. Medicare for All ends private health care insurance, granting the federal government total control....

    On Stephen Colbert's CBS late night show, the host challenged Elizabeth Warren on the issue of single-payer healthcare, which she unequivocally supports. He attempted to nail the leftist Senator down on the question of whether or not middle class Americans' taxes would have to go up (they would, a lot) in order to fund the program she and Bernie Sanders have proposed. She ducked, he drilled down further, then she ducked again -- prompting the comedian to call her out on it, seemingly to her surprise: “You keep being asked in the debates, how are you going to pay...
