A Pimp for ObamaCare
Feels the Pain

American Spectator, by David Catron

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 1/11/2013 7:19:14 AM

When I began writing about the menace of increased federal involvement in our medical delivery system, I was surprised to discover that some doctors actually supported it. These misguided medicos represented only a small minority of practicing physicians, and most were profoundly ignorant about health care economics, but the “M.D.” following their names provided them with a façade of credibility. A number of these people took advantage of their illusory expertise in health care policy to launch blogs which they used to promote their notions of “health reform” and extol the virtues of government-run health care in general.

My family physician runs a blended practice, part insurance and part concierge. He takes no Medicare or Medicaid patients. He had figured out how many patients he needs to run his practice as he sees fit, and has a waiting list. It has to be wonderful in today´s world of medicine to have that control.

Bravo !!!

The description of Doctors never believing that they could be wrong about anything is spot on.

We are entering a very sad situation with the Affordable Care Act. Gotta love that name.

Excellent article - should be a Must Read. Love the description "pimp" to describe those doctors who helped Zippy "sell" the abomination of Obamacare to the low information voters and the future elderly.

I don´t feel sorry for Shadowfax, but I do feel sorry for his/her patients. If those same "pimp" doctors who suddenly have awakened to reality employed the same effort to defund, repeal, and reverse Obamacare, maybe they could redeem themselves and save a lot of their current patients and future patients.

After 12 plus years of college/schooling I am sure many of these physicians believe they are God and have all the answers. I am sure they will be a bit delusional when they find out that the Federal government/obama is actually god and not them.

Upcoding is a real and profound problem regularly practiced by hospitals and medical practices.

It is estimated that medical upcoding is the largest Fraudulent practice by $ amount in the entire economy.

Doctors come in all stripes. Che Guevara was one, I believe. When my niece was in med school a few years back, it was considered gauche to mention money in the pursuit of a medical career. It was all about respect for patients and doing good in the world. Several of her classmates supported O-care openly, and the ones who did not just kept to their studies since being outspokenly against O-care smacked of self-interested money-grubbing disguised as concern for the future of patient care. The narrative that O shamelessly put forth when he talked about doctors cutting off feet and tonsils to make more money has intimidated most doctors into politically correct silence. While we were all sleeping, the germ of socialism was slowly infecting every aspect of our society. When those like Shadowfax fully awake, it will already be too late.

Doctors and hospitals do upcode and perform unnecessary procedures. And many doctors and insurance companies do support government run healthcare. What is better than having a law that says everyone has to have insurance to pay doctors and hospitals, they ask?

All Medicare patients are going to be hurt bad in all this medical fiasco. First Obama took $500 BILLION out of Medicare and put it into Obamacare. That is obviously going to cut some services. Secondly Doctors compensation is being reduced. This will cause many doctors to either retire or stop taking any medicare patients. I see on the copies of Bills what my Doctor charges and what Medicare pay him instead. It is less than half of his normal charge.

I´m in a small town and my Doctor said he is concerned as 2/3´s of his patients are medicare patients. There are not enough rich people here to offset the costs whether they pay cash or their own insurance. It will most likely be the demise of all Doctors in this County or perhaps State.

Then what?

#14 - I disagree. It won´t be too late. Just as the tax-the-rich liberals woke up to an ugly reality with the recent tax deal, Osamacare just might cure a lot of sheltered liberals of Socialism. Plus, the math alone will kill Osamacare.

I followed the link from the article to Shadowfax´s blog and posted the question asking him if he has changed his mind about Osamacare. I suggest going there and reading the comments - sounded like most comments were posted by Ldotters!

My primary care physician retired early. Saw obama care for what it is. There is going to be a significant doctor shortage in the Country very soon. But it will not last long. As part of a stimulus program, obama is promoting on-line medical schools. His favorite is from the Nigerian Skool of Dokters. Not sure, but rumor has it his cousin is running it.

A Colorado Earthquake Shakes D.C.
American Spectator, by Ross Kaminsky    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 2/28/2014 8:17:25 AM     Post Reply
An earthquake hit Colorado politics on Wednesday afternoon, and the tremors are being felt in Washington, D.C. Rep. Cory Gardner, a second-term Republican from the small town of Yuma on Colorado’s eastern plains, announced (or at least it was reported that he was about to announce) his intention to seek the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Democrat Mark Udall rather than seek an essentially certain re-election. Gardner’s move puts Udall, already struggling against barely-known Republicans, in a position where the next polls will likely show him losing his seat to the quarter-century-younger Gardner.

The liberal agenda: Being

The many jaundiced assessments of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act on the fifth anniversary of its enactment were understandable, given that the sluggish recovery, now drowsing through the second half of its fifth year, is historically anemic. Still, bleak judgments about the stimulus spending miss the main point of it, which was to funnel a substantial share of its money to unionized, dues-paying, Democratic-voting government employees. Hence the stimulus succeeded. So there. This illustrates why it is so sublime to be a liberal nowadays. Viewed through the proper prism, most liberal policies succeed because they can hardly fail.

   

 



 
G.O.P., Though Deeply Split,
Has Election Edge, Poll Shows
New York Times, by Jonathan Martin    Original Article

Republicans are in a stronger position than Democrats for this year’s midterm elections, benefiting from the support of self-described independents, even though the party itself is deeply divided and most Americans agree more with Democratic policy positions, the latest New York Times/CBS News poll shows. The independents in the poll — a majority of whom were white or male or under age 45 — continued to sour on President Obama’s job performance. Republicans hold their edge despite the fissures in their party over whether it is too conservative or not conservative enough, and many are discouraged about the party’s future.

NEW YORK (AP) -- New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio´s ambitious agenda to fight income inequality - a campaign he famously titled "The Tale of Two Cities" - has taken a backseat in recent weeks to a series of political stumbles that have become tabloid fodder and shaken his everyman image. First, there was his late-night call to police on behalf of a political ally who was arrested but didn´t spend a night in jail. ("BAIL OF TWO CITIES: Blaz´s call to cops springs pal," the Daily News blared.) Then came widespread second-guessing - led by TV weatherman Al Roker

There have been so many changes to the tax code over the past decade that it is now 10 times the size of the Bible, but with none of the Good News. That factual statement usually gets a good laugh back home in Michigan. What isn´t funny is the effect that constant tinkering with taxes has had on the people who pay them, and on the economy. According to Nina Olsen, the National Taxpayer Advocate at the IRS, Americans overall spend over six billion hours and $168 billion every year to file their returns. This is stark testimony to the complexity

What a great, myth-destroying statement from Marco Rubio, on the floor of the U.S. Senate yesterday afternoon, on the facts about Cuba and their connection to events in Venezuela. We have pressed in these parts for American political figures to speak clearly and with moral confidence about American sympathies in various international disputes. Rubio’s speech is honest political indignation successfully deployed. Late last month Sen. Tom Harkin of Iowa came back from a week-long trip to Cuba full of the wonders he’d seen. In a meeting with reporters he spouted inanities that were clichés a quarter-century ago: Cuba has fabulous health services,

It is definitely an election year in Washington. The annual meeting of the nation’s governors at the White House tries to be the most bipartisan of affairs: The president praises the governors. The governors talk about solutions. Everyone grins broadly as the cameras click away. But on Monday, Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, a Republican, veered off the script while standing on the driveway in front of the West Wing. Moments after leaving a private meeting with Mr. Obama and his fellow governors, Mr. Jindal interrupted a happy-talk news conference with a partisan attack.

The Minimum Wage Is
No Friend of the Poor
Barron´s, by Gene Epstein    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 2/25/2014 8:13:03 AM     Post Reply
The debate over raising the federal minimum wage to $10.10 an hour from the current $7.25 heated up last week with the publication of a Congressional Budget Office study, which estimated that total employment would likely be reduced by "500,000 workers" if the hike were implemented. While the CBO´s scenario made sense, a truly substantive debate about the minimum wage would start with the merits of abolishing it altogether, while seeking to help poor people through more direct means. Instead of decreeing that the unskilled can´t accept certain low-wage offers, thereby condemning many to joblessness, allow them to consider all of

I doubt any president has been as well equipped as Barack Obama to appreciate the vicious cycle of American crime and punishment. As a community organizer in Chicago in the 1980s, he would have witnessed the way a system intended to protect the public siphoned off young black men, gave them an advanced education in brutality, and then returned them to the streets unqualified for — and too often, given the barriers to employment faced by those who have done time, disqualified from — anything but a life of more crime. He would have understood that the suffering of victims

Make Jobs, Not Propaganda

The great virtue of the Congressional Budget Office´s recent report on the minimum wage is that it injects a much-needed dose of reality into the debate over job creation. The Obama administration and its congressional allies have taken the position that raising the minimum wage almost 40 percent would have little, if any, adverse effect on jobs. The CBO rejects this view as unlikely. The gap between the administration´s claim and plausible outcomes reveals larger inconsistencies in the White House´s boast that job creation is a top economic priority. Under the proposal, the federal minimum wage would go from today´s $7.25

PHOENIX — Ending a day that cast a glaring national spotlight on Arizona, Gov.

But in private, rumors persist that the former Secretary of State may not even be capable of making it to Iowa and New Hampshire. Clinton, these skeptics often say, will not run for president again because of health concerns. These ubiquitous rumors of her health have been fueled in part by the supermarket tabloids.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is being hammered by Republican lawmakers after he claimed on the Senate floor that all the ObamaCare "horror stories" being circulated are untrue. Reid tried to clarify his remarks late Wednesday by saying he was only referring to the “vast majority” of stories featured in ads funded by Americans for Prosperity, a conservative group, and not the complaints of everyday Americans. However, he added fuel to the fire by continuing to slam the group’s backers, the Koch brothers, calling them “un-American.” Americans for Prosperity President Tim Phillips, in response, said Reid had effectively

On Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden blamed “hatred” as the motivating force behind voter identification laws in states such as North Carolina, Alabama, and Texas. Biden wants new laws to block “former slave holding states in the south” from discrimination against blacks and other minorities. Biden, speaking at a reception at the Naval Observatory in Washington, D.C., in celebration of African-American History Month, said that, "These guys never go away. Hatred never, never goes away. The zealotry of those who wish to limit the franchise cannot be smothered by reason." Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chafee (I) would take issue with

A chilling video of Maryland police silencing an innocent student who was recording the arrests of two other people has civil libertarians outraged. The arrests were made at night on the streets of Towson, Maryland. A University of Maryland-Baltimore County student who witnessed the arrests decided to record them using his cell phone. The student, 21-year-old Sergio Gutierrez, was soon approached by officers who objected — wrongly — to his actions. Gutierrez repeatedly told the officers that he knew he had the right to film them, but the cops were prepared to use any excuse to shut him down. First they told
