The U.S. health care system is a giant money making scam that is designed to drain as much money as possible out of all of us before we die. In the United States today, the health care industry is completely dominated by government bureaucrats, health insurance companies and pharmaceutical corporations. The pharmaceutical corporations spend billions of dollars to convince all of us to become dependent on their legal drugs, the [...]
Stephanie Chan spent four years at Manila Doctors College qualifying to work as a nurse overseas. She never left the country. Instead, she switched careers and now earns almost as much monitoring people’s finances.
Chan is one of thousands of Filipinos each year who study to become health workers to boost their chance of a higher income overseas. She’s also now part of a growing trend of workers who are opting not to [...]
In a stunning blow to the Senatorial hopes of Rep.

I won a bet today.

From Economic Policy Journal:
I have consistently pointed out that Obamacare will result, within two to three years of its implementation, in a decline in life expectancy in the United States.
This is chiefly because Obamacare looks at healthcare from the macro-position of its proportion to total GDP, without allowing for individual choice.

US President Barack Obama on Monday challenged the “unelected” Supreme Court not to take the “extraordinary” and “unprecedented” step of overturning his landmark health reform law.
