Utah's largest oncology system, Utah Cancer Specialists, which operates eight clinics, has now sent away 10 elderly chemotherapy patients, and has a list of 100 more potential Medicare send-aways, because of the impact of the cuts in Federal reimbursement. The cuts began April 1, under the sequestration scheme devised by Obama in 2011.
A bill has now been introduced in the Senate to repeal President Obama's Independent Payment Advisory Board, an unelected board of technocrats that would have the power to slash Medicare, without Congress being able to overrule it with less than a supermajority vote. The bill, S. 351, was introduced by Sen. John Cornyn (R-Tex.), yesterday, with 31 co-sponsors.
Twenty-one self-described "free market" groups signed onto a joint letter yesterday calling on the House to repeal the Obamacare's Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB) — which the House did in the last Congress, but not the Senate. The letter, which was organized by the National Taxpayers Union, specifically advocates passage of H.R.
This morning, Representatives Phil Roe (R-Tenn.) and Allyson Y. Schwartz (D-Penna.) re-introduced a bill they co-sponsored with 230 others, to repeal President Obama's Nazi T-4 panel, otherwise known as the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), a panel of so-called "experts" that would decide how to reduce Medicare spending for the sole purpose of meeting arbitrary budget targets.
The current suffering, death toll, and scrambling for treatment from this season's flu season in the United States manifests the takedown of the U.S. public health system, which is at the core of Obamacare, whose provenance, in turn, is the killer health care policy promoted by Tony Blair for the City of London/Wall Street crowd.
Obama Administration officials announced yesterday that the program to provide health insurance to people with pre-existing conditions, would be closed to new applicants immediately, for "fiscal reasons." According to the Washington Post, $5 billion was allocated to the program, created under Obamacare in 2010, to bridge the gap between the law's enactment and its requirement that insurance compan
At least two studies have already been produced that warn that the now-in-effect policy of Federal financial penalties on hospitals, deemed as readmitting too many elderly patients within 30 days, will hit hospitals that serve the poorest and sickest segments of the population the hardest. Two recent examples from New York state help to make the case.
Two-thirds of the doctors in the United States no longer practice medicine independently, but they are now in the employ of other entities, to the point where the American Medical Association, in November 2012, issued five guidelines on the "conflict of interest" involved.
The extreme low rankings of health condition in the United States, compared with 15 other OECD nations studied in the newly released report, U.S. Health in International Perspective: Shorter Lives, Poorer Health, focuses attention on problems which cry out for reinstating the Glass-Steagall law, as gateway for the credit to rebuild the physical health care delivery system in the U.S., and restore the principle of commitment to the public good, and provision of health care for all. This outlook was codified in the U.S. as of the 1940s, under the famous Hill-Burton Act; but then, by the 1980s, the commitment was taken down, to the point under Obama today, of killer-policies, as summarzied below.
Addressing the Indian Science Congress on Jan. 7, agronomist and one of the three most important contributors, with the late American agro-scientist, Norman Borlaug, to India's Green Revolution that pulled the nation out of famine to agricultural abundance, M.
