After Mike Bloomberg´s rule for
hospitals, FDA panel votes to
restrict use of painkillers

Washington Examiner, by Joel Gehrke

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/25/2013 6:22:00 PM

Federal Drug Administration advisers voted today to restrict access to certain kinds of prescription drugs in an effort to fight drug abuse. The vote had experts divided over the risk of drug abuse as weighed against the risk of increased pain or difficulty for patients on the medication. “It will have an impact on a lot of patients who have been receiving them for some time for legitimate purposes,” Dr. Lynn Webster, president-elect of the American Academy of Pain Medicine, said per Health Day News ahead of the vote. The FDA rule change is designed to implement

Comments:
Once again an agency goes around congress. Note that Senate passed a rule change to implement the policy and the House killed it. This regime is out of control. This regime is completely out of control. The courts sure are going to be busy in the next four years.

Governor Hickenlooper of Colorado has followed Bloomers lead and is now enforcing the same hospital restrictions.

Just another part of the plan. Less pains meds, more pain, more resulting deaths, including suicides. Red pill or blue pill? How about neither?

Two years ago it was: "No surgery for you...take this pain pill."

Now it´s:"Hurry up and die...untended in the hallway...in pain."

Bloomburg says, so what if you have a little pain.
Under his plan, pain med refills cannot be called in, faxed in, and are not refillable. That is a HUGE obstacle for many people to overcome--going to the doctor´s office to pick up a refill.
So, we punish the sick and elderly because of the drug abuse of miscreants? I say give out as much painkillers, free and in whatever quantity desired. Let the miscreants abuse them and die off to thin the herd of undesirables.
Nanny Bloomburg thus makes this imperial proclamation.

So NYC Mayor Bloomberg doesn´t think this will harm patients?

“Number one, there’s no evidence of that,” Bloomberg said. “Number two, supposing it is really true, so you didn’t get enough painkillers and you did have to suffer a little bit. The other side of the coin is people are dying and there’s nothing perfect.”

Is there no end to Bloomberg´s arrogance?

I´d like to add that yes, having uncontrolled pain CAN harm people. When people have unmanaged pain, they are less likely to move, less likely to participate in exercise. For some, this could mean increased risk for pneumonia, bedsores, blood clots, etc.

Also, as a home health care RN, I want to emphasize how very difficult it can be for some patients to leave their homes, often because of the very pain that needs to be controlled. Many health care providers have no clue about this. It IS a big deal for some patients to have to increase their doctor visits to four times per year instead of two in order to get their prescriptions refilled.

I´m also appalled that a so-called "pain management specialist" thinks this is no big deal.

Evidently, we and our doctors are too stupid to decide what´s best. We need mindless bureaucrats following the script handed to them by legislators to make these decisions for us.

On an unrelated topic, has anyone else noticed how ammo has REALLY gone up in price? Funny, that.

Ridiculous regulation. Druggies will still have drugs, gang-bangers will still have guns.

Innocent citizens will pay for the crimes of the criminals. They are killing us softly with their regulations.

Bloomberg should go through some procedure like a Radical Prostatectomy and go home with a Foley Catheter inserted to pee through and go through the recovery period with minimal or reduced pain medication. I did it and was really thankful that I had ample pain medication. If I was confronted by a rule by some pompous ass of a politician that said that I had to suffer I would likely have resorted to--- Well, lets us say that I would have not been a happy camper.

People go through lots of different procedures that are radical in nature that result in lots of pain. This is not going to go over so well with patients and Doctors. I can imagine that they will just ignore the rules. Another example of citizens reduced to being lawbreakers for living normal lives.

Like guns, with-holding pain management medication will result in a lot of people stocking up on it when ever they can. Throw it away when it expires??? Are you crazy?

And yes, I have noticed first hand how expensive ammo is.

"so you didn’t get enough painkillers and you did have to suffer a little bit."

So you didn´t get enough painkillers. Who cares? The important thing is to keep drugs out of the hands of those who shouldn´t have them...

How´s that War on Drugs working for you now?

Sorry for the double posts but right now, I am thinking of a number of chronic pain conditions that I wish upon Mayor Bloomberg since he thinks suffering a little more is no big deal.

This is the same Government that REQUIRES us to measure pain as an additional vital sign on a scale of 1-10. I can be sanctioned and SUED for not providing adequate care for pain.

These fools continue down THIS road and the pain the patient is feeling will be nothing compared to the pain the fools will be feeling when the patient and family get their hands fee. They will be begging for pain relief of any kind. Pain drives a person crazy...good defense.

In the UK they have the LCP (Liverpool Care Protocol) where the doctor decides who is unlikely to survive and give them pain killers but withholds fluids and nourishment until the patient dies.

Now Bloomberg offers the BCL (Bloomberg Cares Less) which is to withhold fluids, nourishment and painkillers.

I think Bloomberg is Obama´s trial ballooner. Once Obama sees the feedback, he knows how to squash it. Saying that making peeps in pain suffer is a fair trade off if it keeps drugs from dopers lacks any compassion, I can´t breath.

Now let´s back up a couple years, when Obama decided things like hip replacements are wasted on old peeps so we should consider just giving them pain meds instead. Now he´s limiting the pain meds! I guess he wants old folks to beg for euthanasia.

The SPLC’s Attack on Rush

The column I wrote last week, it turns out, has created somewhat of a storm. This is due to one thing only: Rush Limbaugh read it aloud on his radio program. (Start reading in the middle from where it says “BREAK TRANSCRIPT.”) That one decision by Rush led all of our mutual enemies to go viral, sending numerous Tweets and Facebook posts attacking Rush and me for supposedly arguing that the anti-Semitic neo-Nazi Glenn Miller acted because of Max Blumenthal. Of course, as I wrote last week in an addendum, this was not the point I was making. I wrote the following, and repeat it once again:

Iran Refuses to Pull Terrorist

Iran is insisting that the United States accept its decision to appoint a former terrorist as it representative to the United Nations, which held a closed-door meeting on Tuesday to address Tehran’s concerns over the matter. President Barack Obama signed into law last week a widely supported bill preventing countries from appointing terrorists as their U.N. ambassadors. The bill came in response to Iran’s selection of Hamid Aboutalebi as its next envoy to the United Nations. The pick drew outrage on Capitol Hill and elsewhere after Aboutalibi was identified as having played a key role in the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis,

Politico: Dr. Ben Carson´s Talent

At Politico Magazine, writer and physician James Hamblin tried to answer the question "Who is Dr. Ben Carson?" After describing how he became a "darling of the right-wing media" after calling out President Obama at a prayer breakfast, Hamblin tried to explain how he speaks in "over the top" language about America in decline. But Hamblin really let loose when he insisted that despite Dr. Carson´s surgical talent, his opposition to Obamacare is based on "sentiment," not a "rational pespective. His talent "does not imply an elevated or even rational perspective on health-care policy." Carson speaks from a unique position of stature

Obama’s Malaysia Trip
Includes Visit to a Mosque

When President Obama becomes the first U.S. president to visit Malaysia in almost half a century, he will visit a prominent mosque on Sunday – but not a church, in a country where relations between the Muslim establishment and minority Christians have not always been smooth. Also, Obama’s itinerary includes a meeting with “Malaysian civil society leaders,” but according to the White House he will not meet with Anwar Ibrahim, the veteran opposition leader who since the late 1990s has been embroiled in a legal battle with the government widely viewed as a politically motivated harassment campaign.

On Monday, The Washington Post announced it had hired Philip Bump, a journalist currently at Atlantic magazine’s The Wire, to cover politics for their daily blog The Fix. The move set off a chain of congratulations from across the political press corps. But lost in the media love fest was Bump’s partisan past — a history left unspoken in either the Post’s official announcement or any of the Twitter applause. Not only does Bump’s archive at The Wire betray a palpable bias in favor of progressivism; his career as a journalist began when he headed a vicious pro-labor blog which published the names and addresses of opponents later targeted by

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss
