In coming years the President’s landmark Affordable Care Act will be integrated into the American health care system with the promise of providing free, abundant and complete medical care for every American citizen who needs it.
There are those who claim that the new law, passed through Congress without ever having been read by a single Senator or State Representative, is the solution to all of our problems. Its aim [...]
from Washington’s Blog:
Part of the Obama Administration’s promise to the American people regarding Obamacare was that the enormous waste in America’s medical expenses would be reduced. The reversal of that promise has already begun, with the Administration’s announcement on April 1st, that is will increase instead of (as had been promised) decrease, taxpayer subsidies to private health insurance companies.
Estimates of this waste already range generally around 40%. On 15 May 2007, [...]
ATLANTA (CBSMiami) – An antibiotic-resistant family of bacteria continues to spread throughout the U.S. health care system and is now prompting warnings from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The bacteria, Carbapenem-Resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE), kill up to half of the patients who get the bloodstream infections from the disease. The disease has evolved a resistance to carbapenems, also called last-resort antibiotics.
In addition, the CRE bacteria can reportedly transfer its resistance [...]
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 [...]
Has the sexual revolution been good for American women? Not at all. In fact, when you look at the facts it becomes clear that the sexual revolution has been an absolute disaster for American women. In the United States today, men have been trained to primarily view women as sex objects, and our culture has become exceedingly promiscuous. As a result, the United States leads the world in teen pregnancy, [...]
From The Project to Restore America:
Americans constantly complain that their government in Washington is gridlocked and “can’t get anything done.” Those same Americans have nothing to worry about. America’s 2.7 million-plus civilian government workers are laboring intensely every day “getting things done.” It’s just that things “get done” in a different way from what most people would expect and that the things that get done are often not what we [...]

Is the American health care system “the best in the world”? If so, perhaps Oregon is spinning its wheels trying to fix a health care system some U.S. congressmen say isn’t broken. Let’s hear what these national leaders say and then check reality.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says, “We do start with the notion, however, that we have the best health care in the world.” If McConnell had [...]
From The Burning Platform:
Remember when Pelosi said we had to pass the 2,700 page health care abortion of a bill in order to find out what was in it? Remember when Obama told us that families would save $2,500 per year if Obamacare was passed? Remember when Obama and Reid declared that Obamacare would add nothing to the National Debt?
Well now we know what is in it. It seems when [...]
As an illegal immigrant, Jorge Mariscal waited eight years for a kidney transplant he feared would never come.
His persistence paid off Thursday when he underwent the procedure at Loyola University Medical Center.
After years of uncertainties, Mariscal said he’s excited about his future and grateful for the help he received. But he remains frustrated with a health care system that he worries might leave out an untold number of illegal immigrants [...]
Bloomberg TV’s Julianna Goldman spoke with President Obama today to discuss the fiscal cliff and his efforts to compromise with Republican leaders. In a lengthy interview in the Map Room of the White House, President Obama told Goldman that he is willing to make further cuts in entitlements, but insists that Republicans accept higher tax rates for top earners in the US. “It’s just a matter of math.”
And so the government takeover of our health care system begins:
Walmart, the nation’s largest private employer, plans to begin denying health insurance to newly hired employees who work fewer than 30 hours a week..
By making the fine for not providing health care cheaper than providing health care, this was always the plan: to encourage employers to send us to the government.
Remember how Obama’s big ObamaCare sell was, “You get to [...]
Hitler’s T4 Program Revived In Obama’s Health-Care `Reform’

In July of 1939, a conference of medical professionals was held in Berlin, Germany. Participating were the professors and chairmen of the departments of psychiatry of the leading universities and medical schools of Germany, many of them, the most respected professionals in their fields. The subject? What would be the criteria for determining what patients would be [...]
Yesterday, Barack Obama won the presidential election. But, the people of six states voted to take their freedom without federal “permission.”
In ten states – Colorado, Montana, Oregon, Washington, Wyoming, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Massachusetts and Alabama – voters had a chance to resist DC and approve ballot initiatives which would nullify unconstitutional federal acts. Six of them passed. And here’s a brief rundown of each:
1. Montana, Referendum 122
LR-122 is an [...]

I’m going to make a bold prediction about the outcome of the upcoming U.S. election: The winner will be the guy who supports GMOs and bankster bailouts. Which candidate is this? Well BOTH of them, of course.
In fact, I’m also 100% sure the winner will be the candidate who is in favor of going to war with Iran.
The winner will also be the guy in favor [...]

I’ve been pondering this topic for weeks, trying to find the words to communicate the full impact of this realization to which we are all increasingly awakening. Everything is rigged… the stock market, the news, the food, your taxes, public schools, the health care system, and on and on. Even Lance Armstrong’s cycling victories were all apparently rigged (with doping), we’re now finding out.
But what do I mean [...]

There has been anecdotal evidence. But now The Wall Street Journal in its story about GE’s quandary confirmed it: the toughest creature out there that no one has been able to subdue yet, the inexplicable American consumer, is apparently accomplishing a miracle: putting the screws to runaway health-care costs. One of their targets: over-used, over-hyped medical services, such as MRIs and CT scans—an industry bubble that has been ballooning by the [...]
The fastest way to go broke in America is to go to the hospital. These days it seems like almost everyone has an outrageous hospital bill story to share. It is getting to the point where most people are deathly afraid to go to the hospital. All the financial progress that you have made in recent years can literally be wiped out in just a matter of hours. For [...]
Every day, one-third of the people of Copenhagen ride their bikes to work or school. Collectively, they cycle more than 750,000 miles daily, enough to make it to the moon and back. And city officials want even more people to commute, and over longer distances.
So a network of 26 new bike routes, dubbed “the cycling superhighway,” is being built to link the surrounding suburbs to Copenhagen.
Lars Gaardhoj, an official with [...]
From Charles Hugh Smith:
Longtime readers know that I have presented various options to our costly (and therefore doomed) sickcare system. I have suggested a “cash only” system, and observed that the Veterans Administration (VA) offers a model for a national opt-in health care system that would offer an alternative to the hopelessly corrupt “fee for service” sickcare.
Stripped of purposefully obscuring complexity, sickcare is a system of State-sanctioned cartel skimming that [...]
California officials, under U.S. Supreme Court orders to lower the population of its crowded prisons by 33,000 to bring a shoddy health care system up to constitutional standards, say they can’t comply and shouldn’t have to.
In a filing late Friday with a three-judge federal panel in San Francisco, the state Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation said it can provide adequate medical care at higher population levels – about 6,000 higher [...]
The primary objective of President Obama’s overhaul of the health care system is to extend coverage to the tens of millions of Americans currently without insurance. “But coverage will not necessarily translate into care,” because there may not enough doctors to treat everyone, say Annie Lowrey and Robert Pear at The New York Times. The U.S. is already facing a severe shortage of doctors, particularly in rural areas of the country, and [...]

(NaturalNews) Delegates from the Texas Republican Party recently gathered in Fort Worth to iron out their party’s official 2012 platform. And in the official platform document, it is spelled out that the Texas Republican Party is in full support of mandatory labeling of genetically-modified organisms (GMOs), legalized raw milk, and the complete elimination of the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA).
The 22-page report outlining the party’s platform [...]

(NaturalNews) Many Americans right now are reeling in disgust over the Supreme Court’s recent decision to uphold the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act. But according to a recent report byMy Way News, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), which will allegedly be tasked with enforcing the new health insurance mandate in the form of a “tax” for non-compliance, does not actually have the authority or legal standing to [...]
The Republican side of the Senate Budget Committee will later today release the following chart, detailing the rising projected cost of President Obama’s signature legislation, Obamacare: The latest estimate, as the chart details, is that Obamacare will cost $2.6 trillion dollars in its first real decade. The bill does not fully go into effect until 2014, therefore the estimate begins with that year. “President Obama promised a joint session of [...]
MAUMEE, Ohio — President Obama said that repealing his signature health care law is not an option.
“I’ll work with anybody who wants to work with me to continue to improve our health care system and our health care laws, but the law I passed is here to stay,” Obama said at a campaign event in Ohio.
(Also on POLITICO: Carney: ‘Fallacy’ to call ACA ‘broad-based tax’)
In the aftermath of the Supreme [...]
The Obama administration on Friday threatened to veto a defense appropriations bill in part because it does not include higher health care fees for members of the military.
“The Administration is disappointed that the Congress did not incorporate the requested TRICARE fee initiatives into either the appropriation or authorization legislation,” the White House wrote in an official policy statement expressing opposition to the bill, which the House approved in May.
President Obama’s most recent budget [...]
Medical care accounts for 18 percent of the U.S. gross domestic product — and it is taking up at least as much of the mindshare of plenty of American entrepreneurs and business owners.
At this very moment, the economic basis of the entire health-care system is up in the air, as a result of the imminent U.S. Supreme Court opinion in the health care reform law cases. Court observers expect the [...]
