Obamacare’s Curse

Published by at 7:11 am under All General Discussions,Obamacare

There are days when it seems even fate or God is sending a message to the liberals in DC to just give up on their wrongheaded approach of government run and rationed health care. Just as Al Gore’s global warming  conferences seem to be regularly plagued by blizzards, the Obamacare major events always seem to come in tandem with horrible breaking news about England’s or Canada’s disastrous government rationed health care programs:

Not a single official has been disciplined over the worst-ever NHS hospital scandal, it emerged last night.

Up to 1,200 people lost their lives needlessly because Mid-Staffordshire NHS Trust put government targets and cost-cutting ahead of patient care.

But none of the doctors, nurses and managers who failed them has suffered any formal sanction.

Former chief executive Martin Yeates, who has since left with a £1million pension pot, six months’ salary and a reported £400,000 payoff, did not even give evidence to the inquiry which detailed the scale of the scandal yesterday.

Bosses at the Trust – officially an ‘elite’ NHS institution – were condemned for their fixation with cutting waiting times to hit Labour targets and leaving neglected patients to die.

H/T Drudge. No wonder Canadian leaders come to the US for serious medical attention. Folks, make sure you follow this link and read the whole article. Your life and the lives of your family depend on it.

Reminds me of the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac financial disasters, where none of the Democrat legislators or Democrat-crony managers who legalized and then ran up the collection of bad loans in the name of liberal social engineering. They too never paid for the financial devastation they caused as they lined their pockets with the money of American home owners. These people were trusted to be responsible and protect the American People’s trust.

This is the robotic greed of the government bureaucracy. In the name of doing good some people just pillage the public piggy bank – completely blind and immune to any carnage they cause. 1200 people died from neglect under horrible conditions – conditions we don’t even allow for our pets, let alone loved ones. This is the context of today’s already failed health care summit, where President Obama and the Democrats will once more shine a light on their incompetence, tone deafness and crazed compulsive behavior.

The universe is sending a message, people need to listen. We don’t want the UK Health Care disaster in place of what we have now. And don’t pretend to pick on marginal details. This crime against humanity was caused by cost cutting. Just another version of controlling insurance premiums.

    As the saying goes, that’s not a bug, it’s a feature.

    And the current UK gov doesn’t consider this a crime against humanity; it’s just a bit of bad PR tossed out by the haters who don’t see that crowd control is the only true function of government. If they can just do away with that pesky free speech stuff, everything would be fine.

    Sadly WWS, I think you are spot on here. It’s just inhumane to a level that borders on concentration camps. Even death row prisoners get better treatment.

    Thanks for being on the cutting edge AJ.

    As I’ve said before its not the private sector of Insurance or medical care thats’ broken it is the gov’t portion that is out of control. Becasue of Medicare and Medicaid rippoffs and frivolous lawsuits the costs are spiraling out of control and doctors and insurers have no recouse but to raise rates to try to survive. Add coverage for PRE_EXISTING CONDITIONS to the mix and iot will raise premiums to the point no-one will be able to afford insurance. Try the pre existing conditions meme with your wrecked car. Drive it to the agent and tell him you want to buy insurance and all the others already insured should pay for it. His look upon his face wiull give you the answer if he doesnt just outright laugh you out of the office.

    The Dems know this but they are trying to organize the DUMB community which they think is a majority. I hope not!

    But, but, but….

    OUR system will be soooo much better than the inferior systems in those other countries simply because ours will be designed and run by The Won.

    Those other countries never had the luxury of having Doc Obama handling things for them.

    He did, after all, lower the rise of the seas. Right? Who else, besides God Himself, could do that?

    We’re in teh very best of hands.

    Listening to Rush right now. He is going through the Health Care powow and says the Republicans are smoking the Democrats. They are offering facts, figures and solutions while the Dems are reading sob story letters about people without health care.

    This whole thing may backfire on the Obamabots.

    O’Reilly’s body language person will have to be given the entire hour after this televised presentation of self by this President.
    Socrates could sum it up quickly – or Lincoln, who was expert on turning an apples v. oranges type phrase.
    This is so great to have televised. It will be said that the President still cannot explain it. What did he explain except that some people are not well off? We all know that.
    Many will watch; many key components will be excerpted for the millions of concerned Americans.
    It is Sob Stories Vs. Economics.

    Apparently, the ancient Greeks had it nailed, when they populated their pantheon of deities with a bunch for whom we humans were their chief amusement.

    Rush has even confessed he was wrong. He railed against the republicans about going. However, they are doing so well, it will be to their advantage. 0bama is getting short and testy and one
