Texas Doctor Writes Epic Letter Breaking Up
With Insurance Company: I Will Not Comply

Independent Journal Review, by Emily Hulsey

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/4/2014 5:37:56 AM

Dr. Kristin Held recently wrote a letter to insurance company Aetna cancelling her partnership with them, stating that she can neither morally nor effectively treat her patients under the regulations enforced by the Affordable Care Act: Dear Mr. Bertolini, With a deep sense of sadness, I must inform you that I will no longer serve as a physician for Aetna patients under the terms of our contractual agreement, which you most recently unilaterally changed. I have been privileged and honored to care for thousands of patients covered by Aetna policies since the 1990’s. I have devoted my life to providing

The only rational choice the USA has is to repeal obamacare, in its entirety. This Reid/Pelosi/obama Utopian fantasy of theirs is horribly defective and must be eliminated.

Civil disobedience against the Democrats trying to enforce Decline on the nation (and the Republicans cooperating with them) - perhaps it´s the only way left.

Only the beginning.There will be a mass exodus of doctors and hospitals.The republicans have got to step up promotion of their program,(whatever it is)

Rush had this really weird theory yesterday which I could barely manage to stomach. Something to the effect the GOP House want to win in Nov, but not a blowout.This has to be one of the dumbest things I ever heard..It´s not Rush´s theory,someother loon.

Good for her! But Aetna does not care. Soon every doctor will just be a paid employee of giant health care hospital chains. Her independent practice will go out of business in the next year because she ill not be able to comply with all the new regulations unless she joins with many other doctors to spread the costs….

She does have the right to terminate the contract. She also does not have to accept patients into her practice that she does not want. Just because someone has insurance doesn´t guarantee acceptance into a specific practice..

It took a lot of "balls" to defy the Obamacare mandates forced upon her.

The very notion that the terms of a legally binding contract were unilaterally changed without her consent just shows the folly of this whole scheme!

Contract law, one of the bedrocks of our legal system is under attack.

I would hope other physicians would jump on this bandwagon!

Right here are your "Death Panels"
I´m quite certain that in keeping with the Cloward-Piven philosophy of collapsing the system, the Øbamboozler and his minions won´t have to make any of those so-called decisions (What death panels?) knowing full well that when the system collapses under the weight of their oppressive regulations doctors will quit, hospitals will close, the people will be milked out of everything to get a little care and the herd will automatically get thinned out by attrition. Meanwhile they will have more and more power over the people as the unspoken words of communism sink in!

The progressive policies such as 0bamacare only function as long as We The People allow it to with our acquiescence.

As more and more of us follow the good Dr. Held´s lead, these policies all come crashing down.

What we desperately need is for the establishment Repubs to grow a pair and join the Tea Party folks to come up with a reasonable alternative. We are going to need one!

#13 Texas has an excellent plan. This is why we have the highest number of uninsured in our Nation. Our citizens do not "need" health insurance.

We have our county hospital districts with the associated hospitals and free clinics that take care of people that cannot afford medical treatment. We pay for this through our annual property taxes. This has been the system in Texas for 40+ years.

A couple of year´s ago my doctor became part of Christus Sponh Hospital network here in Corpus Chrsiti. It is the major hospital network in this area. I booked an appointment with my doctor and told she was busy and I needed to see her physician´s assistant. Long story short,she was a total b**** and bad mouthed the meds I had been taking for years. I complained to my doctor at the next visit and was told there was nothing she could do because they are both employees of Christus Spohn. She said she had a little more say so and would tell the powers that be, but the b**** is still there. I am afraid this is only the beginning.

My primary care physician has quit Medicare. In fact, after more than 20 years in this area, 18 years as my doctor, he is going into another line. He predicts mass exodus of doctors from medical practice. His daughter, who is also a physician, is making plans to manufacture shoes and handbags. In the foreseeable future, US medicine will largely consist of nurse practitioners and third world doctors.

My approach--- I opted-out of medicare after 25 years--I did it in 2001 and have never looked back. People can afford medical care for the small stuff out of pocket and afford insurance coverage for catastrophes. I feel sorry for young docs who have such huge educe. bills and may be govt employees for the foreseeable future. Also we have a large %of foreign born physicians who love govt $$$--ie supporting socialized medicine. The Canadians were right==NO OBAMACARE!! Enough for today--take care of yourselves...

#25, after 33 years, I’m too old to change. If you want to see people in hospital setting, opting out (of medicare) isn’t possible. I agree, many, not only FMGs, love to sign up medicaid patients, the best new customers of “Obamacare”, where they are paid if they see people or not, just for having names on the list. The patients go to the ER, the physician still gets his monthly check. You are right, of course, that government control is the worst possible thing for efficient and effective medical care.

Advice to Democrats: Don´t say ´recovery´
Associated Press, by David Espo    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/18/2014 10:15:20 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON - Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion that the Obama administration has had six years to get the economy moving and its policies haven´t worked. Coincidentally or not,

Iran Gets an Unlikely Visitor, an American

President Obama has warned that Iran is not open for business, even as the United States has loosened some of its punishing economic sanctions as part of an interim nuclear pact. Yet, on Tuesday morning, Iran had an unlikely visitor: a plane, owned by the Bank of Utah, a community bank in Ogden that has 13 branches throughout the state. Bearing a small American flag on its tail, the aircraft was parked in a highly visible section of Mehrabad Airport in Tehran. But from there, the story surrounding the plane, and why it was in Iran — where all but a few

Cost of Treatment May Influence Doctors

Saying they can no longer ignore the rising prices of health care, some of the most influential medical groups in the nation are recommending that doctors weigh the costs, not just the effectiveness of treatments, as they make decisions about patient care. The shift, little noticed outside the medical establishment but already controversial inside it, suggests that doctors are starting to redefine their roles, from being concerned exclusively about individual patients to exerting influence on how health care dollars are spent. “We understand that we doctors should be and are stewards of the larger society as well as of the patient in

Hillary Clinton may end up deciding she wants to spend the 935 days until election 2016 making corporate speeches and spoiling her grandchild. Recent events have exposed weaknesses in Clinton’s supposedly impregnable armor, gaps through which a Democratic or Republican challenger could damage, perhaps even defeat her. The bad headlines to which she has been subjected are enough to make anyone—anyone who isn’t a Clinton—think twice about running for president. Look at the polls. This week’s Fox News poll has Clinton’s favorable rating at its lowest point in six years. She is at 49 percent favorable, 45 percent unfavorable—similar to her

President Barack Obama used his Thursday press conference to diagnose Republicans as fear-mongering, spiteful, obstinate, petulant and obstructive, as he again declared mission-accomplished in his effort to put the nation’s health-care under government control. “I recognize that their party is going through the stages of grief — anger and denial and all that stuff — and we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama told reporters, where he announced that his Obamacare network had claimed 8 million subscribers. Obama coupled his passive-voice diatribe with his more-in-sorrow-than-anger promise that he “would much prefer a constructive conversation with the Republicans about how do we get some

The captain of a ferry that sank off the coast of South Korea Wednesday, leaving nearly 300 people missing, is under investigation as a possible criminal and was one of the first people to escape the doomed vessel, Coast Guard officials said. Lee Joon-seok, 69, left the ferry on a lifeboat 32 minutes after reporting an accident, officials said. The captain appeared on Korean television today, his face covered by a gray hoodie. “I am really sorry and deeply ashamed,” he said, as he was being questioned at the Mokpo Coast Guard Office. It´s unclear which of his actions could be considered criminal.

Soon after the tea party era began in Congress in 2011, President Obama and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan each released their budgets, proposing how much the government should tax and spend over the rest of the decade. Three years into that budget showdown, Mr. Ryan and his Republican colleagues are winning. Government spending has slowed, and Mr. Obama’s plans for higher taxes and higher spending have fallen by the wayside. “The discretionary spending has in fact been driven by Republicans post-2010 clamping down,” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office who is now president of the

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations

Ezra Klein, in his new capacity as one of the impresarios behind Vox, has written a pair of attention-grabbing posts — here, and then here — defending the proposition that Obamacare has, in some sense, “won,” and that conservatives who can’t come to terms with that victory can’t come to terms with reality itself. Reading them, it struck me that this argument would benefit from laying down some specific markers for the near future, because Klein seems to move back and forth between two definitions of success. At times, as when he writes that Obamacare “has won its survival” and

It’s no secret that Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) don’t like one another. They battle regularly over legislation and their Senate floor fights over arcane-but-important rules have become must-see entertainment for senatorial insiders. According to aides in both parties, the two leaders have not had a one-on-one sitdown to discuss legislation (or anything else) since late last year. Nowadays, all business is conducted on the phone or in brief discussions on the Senate floor. Part of that feud is political – Democrats targeted McConnell in 2008, Republicans targeted Reid in 2010, Democrats

Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'
