´So you´ll suffer a little bit´: Bloomberg
says combating addiction ´epidemic´ is
riority as he hits back at claims that
plan to restrict prescription painkillers
will penalize poor

Daily Mail [UK], by Helen Pow

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/12/2013 10:55:59 AM

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has launched a crackdown on prescription drugs and said patients who genuinely need painkillers might have to ´suffer a little bit´ to get the citywide addiction ´epidemic´ under control. Bloomberg announced the plan, which will sharply restrict some of the most common and most powerful painkillers from emergency rooms in the city´s 11 hospitals, yesterday. But it was immediately met with harsh criticism, with doctors claiming it would penalize the poor. However, the Mayor was not swayed, claiming, on his weekly radio show, that there was ´no evidence´

Comments:
I can´t print what I really think of this arrogant little jerk. His behavior is disgusting and stunning. Just imagine if a conservative said this, or even Rush Limbaugh. The leftists would be apoplectic! It will penalize the poor?? How about penalizing everyone?? If you can´t see the danger of out of control dictators like Bloomberg there is no hope for you.

He ignores what is going on in the streets outside the hospital unless it deals with salt or soft drinks, he always has an excuse for drug dealers but he is sticking his nose into hospitals and doctors treating patients. When did he get his MD?

I do wonder what would this little moron say or do if he was in a hospital and had to have surgery without an anesthetic or pain killers. He needs to be replaced as soon as possible. OR go to a hospital with a ruptured appendix.

#3, those citizens who live in cities with such mayors, or States with such governors can move. If they stay, that´s their problem.

As for Bloomberg´s cavalier attitude toward pain-killing drugs and others suffering, like most, I´d like to see him writhing in pain on the ground as his appendix is about to burst or as one of his his spinal discs herniates. We´ll see how he feels about "suffering at little bit".

I remember many years ago that many doctors were hesitant to prescribe pain killers, saying essentially what Doomberg is now saying. Wife and I were told also that pain killers would make it difficult for a doctor to determine where the pain was coming from making diagnosis more difficult and that pain killers actually retarded healing. 30 plus years later I am reading articles that pain killing drugs actually speed up healing. Now this little twerp is sticking his big nose into the debate.

Sick, EVIL monster! This tyrant is going make the demand for heroin and black market pill trade go up. He will turn people, who are in pain, into "criminals" simply because they are trying to function without horrible suffering. Some pain is not bearable without some kind of strong medication...those people will not just be a little uncomfortable if they can´t get their prescriptions. Yes, I too hope he experiences some very painful afflictions during his little experiment. The only problembis that he will just use his power and position to get what he needs. He is more equal than others, you know...

Democrats squawk as cracks

Washington Examiner, by Byron York    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/3/2014 9:20:04 PM     Post Reply
Immigration reform advocates are fond of citing broad support for their cause. But in fact the coalition behind the Senate Gang of Eight comprehensive reform bill is fragile and loosely cobbled together. How could Big Labor and the Chamber of Commerce and the tech world and Big Agriculture all unite behind one bill? Very tentatively. It wouldn´t take much to break the coalition apart. And if that happens, the effort to enact comprehensive immigration reform could blow up, not just for the moment, but for some time to come. And there are signs that is exactly what is occurring now.

18 Democrats join GOP to restore
40-hour work week under Obamacare

Facing withering pressure to stick with the president and block any GOP effort to change Obamacare, 18 Democrats crossed the aisle to join Republicans Thursday in replacing the 30-hour work week with the traditional 40 hours, a major boost to small businesses. Voting 248-179, the House passed Indiana Republican Rep. Todd Young’s “Save American Workers Act,” which repealed Obamacare’s 30-hour definition of full-time employment. Going into the vote, Young had nine Democrats supporting the legislation and in the end 18 joined to define a work week as 40 hours. Democratic leaders leveled intense pressure on members to stick with President Obama’s preference

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said the Wednesday shooting at Fort Hood made him wish that Congress would pass expanded background checks for gun purchases. “As I was told today, this young man bought this gun a day or two before he killed these people,” Reid said. “Couldn’t we at least have background checks so that people who are ill mentally or felons shouldn’t be able to buy a gun? Even [National Rifle Association] members, the majority of them, support that.” Reid could bring such a bill back to the floor this year. “I would like to bring it back up; we

SYRACUSE, N.Y. – A city board on Thursday gave a Muslim group the go-ahead to remove six crosses from the roof and spires of a century-old former Catholic church so the now-vacant Gothic structure can be used as a mosque. More than 200 people had signed an online petition calling on the Syracuse Landmark Preservation Board to deny an application by North Side Learning Center, the church´s new owner, to remove the crosses and build a six-foot chain-link fence. Before the vote to allow the church alterations, Chairman Don Radke said the board cannot interfere with a decision that involves

There has been outrage in the U.S. over Iran’s bid to have one of the hostage takers who stormed the American Embassy in Tehran serve as its ambassador to the UN in New York. Twenty-nine Republican senators have written to President Obama urging him to deny a visa to Hamid Aboutalebi, who was a member of a Muslim student group that took over the Embassy in 1979 and held 52 Americans hostage for 444 days. The State Department says it’s “troubled” by the move, but has not said if it will refuse Aboutalebi a visa. Now Aboutalebi has found support

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

Buoyed by good news over his signature healthcare program, Obama touted proposals to raise the minimum wage and spur job creation that have little chance of passage in Congress during a rally with students in Michigan. Later at a fundraiser in Chicago he underscored Democratic worries about their political vulnerabilities in the Senate and House of Representatives in November congressional elections.

As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time.

5 Reasons Why Republicans

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft
