"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." Ecclesiastes 10:2
President Obama is wooing seniors with promises to protect Medicare as they’ve known it. On the defensive because of the $716 billion his health care law takes from Medicare, Obama assures seniors he’s cutting payments to hospitals and other providers, not their benefits.
Don’t be bamboozled. It’s illogical to think that reducing what a hospital is paid to treat seniors won’t harm their care. A mountain of scientific evidence proves the cuts will worsen the chance that an elderly patient survives a hospital stay and goes home. It’s reasonable to conclude that tens of thousands of seniors will die needlessly each year.
Under ObamaaCare, hospitals, hospice care, dialysis centers, and nursing homes will be paid less to care for the same number of seniors than if the health law had not been enacted. Payments to doctors will also be cut.” Read more: here
Of course, this is the exact opposite of what Barack Hussein Obama and the Democrats told the America public, when they were forcing this unwanted behemoth into Law.
At the time, Conservatives were the only people decrying this fraud. They understood what was coming, what this was about and what the end results were to be — cuts to certain segments of the populous were inevitable. Now we see cuts to the aging, who are the people who uses doctors and hospitals more than the young and healthy, by circumstance of nature.
Republicans were and still are, maligned for even presenting a ‘path to reform’, realizing
we’re running out of money we don’t currently have enough funding for all “entitlements”. Reform to Medicare, etc., is mandatory — yet the Democrats refuse to address the subject in any reasoned manner. They slandered Paul Ryan and depicted him “throwing granny over the Medicare cliff” (here), all the while knowing, it was the burdensome Obamacare/ Democrats which were dumping Granny to her demise.
Reforms should come through open discussion, which Democrats have stifled for decades. Instead of offering young people ‘options’ to Medicare, other choices (choices, not mandates), Democrats have demanded no reforms but the ‘status quo’. . . . as they secretly cut funding to our aging citizens healthcare by over $500 billion dollars.
Of course, the Liberal mind think sees no worth in most seniors — at least those seniors who aren’t part of the well connected, Liberal political class. This is, of course, obscene and fascist.
Aging citizens cost more — government doesn’t want to pay and has decided to ‘cut’. The consequence might well be to get rid of the problem as soon as possible, in any way possible. Saying “No” is the beginning.
The “Affordable Healthcare Act”/ “obamacare”, is NOT “affordable”. Write your Congressman and demand “obamacare” be repealed.
