Fw: THIS IS A DEATH SENTENCE

I had one of the most troubling, most disturbing conversations ever
with Julie's sister-in-law, Dr.
 
Suzanne Allen, head of emergency
services at the 
Johnson City Medical Center in Tennessee. We were
discussing the "future" and I asked her had she seen any affects of
Obama Care in her work?

"Oh, yes. We are seeing cutbacks throughout the services we provide.
For example, we are now having to deal with patients who would
normally receive dialysis can no longer be accepted. In the past,
there was always automatic approval under Medicare for anyone who
needed dialysis -- not anymore." So, what will be their outcome? "They
will die soon without dialysis," she stated.

What about other services? She indicated as of 2013 (after the
election), no one over 75 will be given major medical procedures
unless approved by locally administered Ethics Panels. These Panels
will determine whether a patient receives medical treatment or not.
While details on specific operating procedures and schedules, Dr.
Allen points out that most life-threatening emergencies do not occur
during normal hospital business hours, and if there are emergencies
that depend to be resolve within minutes or just few hours, the likely
hood of getting these Panels approval in time to save a life are going
to be very challenging and difficult, if not impossible she said.

This applies to major operations such as receiving stents, bypass
surgery, kidney operations, or treating for an aneurysm that would be
normally covered under Medicare today. In other words, if you needed a
life-saving operation, Medicare will not provide coverage anymore
after 2013 if you are 75 or over. When in 2013? "We haven't been given
a specific date -- could be in January or July....but it's after the
election."

This is shocking to any of us who will be 75 this year. Her advice --
get healthy and stay healthy. We do not know the specifics of the
actual implementation of the full Obama Care policies and procedures
-- "they haven't filtered down to the local level yet. But we are
already seeing severe cuts in what we provide to the elderly -- we
refused dialysis to an individual who was 78 just the other day....we
refused to give stents to a gentleman who was in his late 80s." Every
day, she said, we are seeing these cutbacks aimed at reducing care
across the board for anyone who is over 75.

We can only hope that Obama Care will be overturned by the Supreme
Court -- otherwise, this is a death sentence to those who are over
75....perhaps you should pass this on to your friends who are thinking
of voting for Obama this year.

Regardless if you have private health care coverage now (I have 
Aetna
Medicare Part B) -- it will no longer apply after 2013 if the Ethics
Panels disapprove of a procedure that may save your life. Scary,
scary, scary. Think about this? You? Your parents? Your loved ones?

Didn't know about it? Of course, not. As 
Nancy Pelosi said...."well,
if you want to know what's in the bill, you'll have to read it....."
After it was passed.

This is a graphic reminder of the need to stay healthy. Get your plot
now at 
Forest Lawn....while they last. Is this a death sentence to
those of us who will reach 75? Yes!

Please do pass this along to those in your address book.

I guess I could go through and point out how each part of this is bullshit. But its the weekend, so let's save some time:

BULLSHIT!!!!

But anon, this was relayed to someone by a real doctor. Therefore, I think it is 100% accurate and not fabricated at all.

Yes, Obama's secret plan is out.

Part one: Provide basic healthcare to all.
Part two: Deny basic healthcare to all.

Yes, it's all clear through hindsight. How could we have failed to see it coming?

Selfish, selfish rightwing seniors. They don't give a hoot for the plight of anyone under 55. Selling out future generations of seniors by supporting the Ryan budget which WILL take healthcare away from future seniors. While fearmongering that Obamacare will do to them what they want to do to others. They want their Medicare and screw everyone else. Shameful.

As some will no doubt already realize, I personally have a LOT of issues with ObamaCare... mainly that it's either not just Medicare for all, or at least have a single payer option. IMO, Obama sold us down the river to BigPharma, BigMedicalDevice, BigHospital, and what we got was a big mess that basically enables Corporate Fat Cats to make more & more money off of our money.

That said, ObamaCare is teensy tinsy step in the right direction and does provide *some* improvements for all, most notably doing away with the heinous practice of not providing ins to those with pre-existing conditions.

But what happened when ObamaCo started investigating how to improve both health care & the concomitant health insurance industry? Why we had corporate fascists (note correct spelling, please), the Koch brothers who bought out the so-called Tea Party (which did have *some* initial good ideas) and paid for a bunch of conservatives - duly noted MOSTLY Seniors already on Medicare - to go out and behave like a bunch of drunken bullies and hooligans after a British soccer match.

Shrieking and screaming at Town Halls so that citizens who had a different point of view could not express their opinions - great democratic actions! Marching with Obama-Hitler signs, Obama-Kenyan Witch Doctor signs, Dachau signs, Sarah Palin incredibly irresponsibly shrieking about "death panels," spitting on AA congress people, and physically attacking people who had different opinions than them.

But what, pray tell, were their proposed "solutions" to the ever increasing costs of health care?? What did they propose to make things, you know, better??

I don't frickin' have a clue bc, quite frankly, I don't think the brainwashed & bought off Tea Partiers really HAD a solution. All they wanted to do was to let their racist bigotry be shrieked out loud & proud. Basically an invitation to demonstrate to the world what a bunch of creepy bigoted assholes they are with absolutely no solutions, other than to spout a bunch of credulous nonsense about Ayn Rand (whom most of them probably had never heard of until that point), allegedly being "self-sufficient" (which most of them were NOT), and yelling repeatedly, in effect, "Get offa my lawn, you dirty "n" word!!!!!"

BooYah.

And now we see Exhibit Q (after having already seen Exhibits A through P) as to how this brainwashing is done.

Some rightwing think tank, this time no doubt funded by David Koch, gets some totaly HACK to cough up this tired old hair ball, and rightwingers - probably mostly over 70 - duly get in line & march in time to the beat.

Buncha losers. Buncha lies. Buncha crap.

P.S. Remember folks, if you discover that I mis-spelled just one word, then you can: a) ignore (at your peril) what I'm saying, and b) wank about what a loser I am. Have fun, now, ya hear??

Twokilla, anyone? I could take a double shot, no salt, myself.

fersdoubleshotz: Doing a bit better with "yer" spelling there, amigo. Only TWO errors today: fearmongering? Come on my man..that would be two words: FEAR MONGERING (no such word as fearmongering).....Error #2) totaly HACK, or TOTALLY HACK?.... Doing much better, though...keep it up! I tip my hat to you! Now make sure not to dribble your Tequila down your chin...you libtards are good at letting things drip down "yer" chins! ;-)

Such a long rant with only one truth the right wing health plan.
“Get healthy and stay healthy”

Has it really come to this? Do we really have a spelling troll now? I suppose that's better than a typical troll, since they aren't necessarily lying all the time in a pathetic attempt to argue right wing points. But still... spelling troll? Lame with a double covering of lame sauce.

gruaud said...

Yeah, if all ya got is spelling, just pack it up and take the next bus to lameville.

Population: you.

I make spelling errors all the time. So what? We have bigger fish to fry over here.

"Fearmongering" is actually acceptable according to the Oxford English Dictionary and Merriam Webster. That aside, are you that afraid of his words that you have to focus on minutiae like you do? Show some backbone and try to make a genuine argument instead of playing linguistic grab-ass.

SpellingFerSchitz... NOT said...

Thanks vis the ref. to fearmongering being acceptable as a word. I've seen it spelled both ways.

Per usual, the Conservative Spelling Police have nothing better to contribute to the "conversation" other than to nitpick about my spelling errors.

Boo hoo!

It's not me who's dribbling shit...

Politics is like two little boys on the playground fighting over a lil' girl that doesn't even exist. Just food for thought!;-)

gruaud said...

No, it is not.

It is quite literally life or death.

The conservative agenda has been repeatedly revealed to be harmful the poor, to crash the economy, to discriminate against minorities, and to make fat cats fatter at the expense of the rest of us.

That they have so large a voice even though their policies are so toxic is because they control most of the wealth and have the biggest megaphones.

So spare us your cute little simile. In no such way is it even remotely 'both sides do it'.
