Dr. Janda’s speech is a bottom of the ninth walk-off game winning Bill Mazerosk type homerun into Aunt Minnie’s room.  For the past few days, I’ve been reading articles and commentaries on Brother O’s plan for socialized medicine, and Janda’s speech outlines the plan’s problems most succinctly.  So raise the window, Aunt Minnie, Janda’s blast is a genuine mind-changer! 

  

Health Care Reform, The Power & Profit of Prevention

Dr. Dave Janda, MD,

Thursday, 23 July 2009

As a physician who has authored books on preventative health care, I was given the opportunity to be the keynote speaker at a Congressional Dinner at The Capitol Building in Washington last Friday, July 17.

In preparation for the presentation, I read the latest version of “reform” as authored by The Obama Administration and supported by Speaker Pelosi and Senator Reid.  The Obama Care Plan titled, America’s Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009, is a 1,018 page document.  
 
Let me summarize just a few salient points of the above plan.  First, however, it should be clear that the same warning notice must be placed on The ObamaCare Plan as on a pack of cigarettes: Consuming this product will be hazardous to your health.  

The underlying method of cutting costs throughout the plan is based on rationing and denying care.  There is no focus on preventing health care need whatever. The plan’s method is the most inhumane and unethical approach to cutting costs I can imagine as a physician.

The rationing of care is implemented through The National Health Care Board, according to the plan.  This illustrious Board “will approve or reject treatment for patients based on the cost per treatment divided by the number of years the patient will benefit from the treatment.

Translation…..if you are over 65 or have been recently diagnosed as having an advanced form of cardiac disease or aggressive cancer…..dream on if you think you will get treated…..pick out your coffin.

Oh, you say this could never happen? Sorry…. this is the same model they use in Britain.

The plan mandates that there will be little or no advanced treatments to be available in the future.  It creates The Federal Coordinating Council For Comparative Effectiveness Research, the purpose of which is “to slow the development of new medications and technologies in order to reduce costs.”  Yes, this is to be the law.

The plan also outlines that doctors and hospitals will be overseen and reviewed by The National Coordinator For Health Information and Technology.  

This “coordinator” will “monitor treatments being delivered to make sure doctors and hospitals are strictly following government guidelines that are deemed appropriate.” It goes on to say…..”Doctors and hospitals not adhering to guidelines will face penalties.”  

According to those in Congress, penalties could include large six figure financial fines and possible imprisonment.  

So according to The ObamaCare Plan….if your doctor saves your life you might have to go to the prison to see your doctor for follow-up appointments.  I believe this is the same model Stalin used in the former Soviet Union.  

Section 102 has the Orwellian title, “Protecting the Choice to Keep Current Coverage.”  What this section really mandates is that it is illegal to keep your private insurance if your status changes – e.g., if you lose or change your job, retire from your job and become a senior, graduate from college and get your first job.  Yes, illegal.

When Mr. Obama hosted a conference call with bloggers urging them to pressure Congress to pass his health plan as soon as possible, a blogger from Maine referenced an Investors Business Daily article that claimed Section 102 of the House health legislation would outlaw private insurance.

He asked: “Is this true? Will people be able to keep their insurance and will insurers be able to write new policies even though H.R. 3200 is passed?”  Mr. Obama replied: “You know, I have to say that I am not familiar with the provision you are talking about.”  

Then there is Section 1233 of The ObamaCare Plan, devoted to  “Advanced Care Planning.After each American turns 65 years of age they have to go to a mandated counseling program that is designed to end life sooner.

This session is to occur every 5 years unless the person has developed a chronic illness then it must be done every year. The topics in this session will include, “how to decline hydration, nutrition and how to initiate hospice care.”  It is no wonder The Obama Administration does not like my emphasis on Prevention.  For Mr. Obama, prevention is the “enemy” as people would live longer.

I rest my case. The ObamaCare Plan is hazardous to the health of every American.

After I finished my Capitol Hill presentation, I was asked by a Congressman in the question-answer session:  “I’ll be doing a number of network interviews on the Obama Health Care Plan.  If I am asked what is the one word to describe the plan what should I answer.”

The answer is simple, honest, direct, analytical, sad but truthful.  I told him that one word is FASCIST.

Then I added, “I hope you’ll have the courage to use that word, Congressman.  No other word is more appropriate.

Smashing News!  Brother O and his Bread and Circuses Administration have “rescued the economy

White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel told The New York Times Brother O intends to use his news conference as a “six-month report card,” to talk about how the BCA “rescued the economy from the worst recession.” Yet …

  • The US lost over 3 million jobs in the first six months of this year under Brother O’s Bread and Circuses Administration.
  • The US unemployment rate rose from 7.6% to 9.7% under Obama… the highest rate in 26 years.
  • Brother O’s Bread and Circuses Administration will quadruple the US budget deficit his first year in office and spend $23.7 trillion to “fix” the economy by next year.

Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere

House Republicans say it’s now up to Rep. Edolphus Towns, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, to hold hearings on ACORN and up to the Justice Department to pursue a criminal investigation.

For a quick preview of what the future holds for the Republicans, set the WABAC Machine for June 26 and May 29 of this year to see what the House Judiciary Committee Chairman and the Justice Department were up to then.

Get it?  Good.  It’s time to move along now … nothing more to see here … everything’s under control.

Pick up your money

GOP Congressional Report Accuses ACORN of Political Corruption, Widespread Fraud

FOXNews.com

July 22, 2009

House Republicans issuing a report Thursday accusing ACORN of fraudulent activities and widespread corruption, concluding a criminal investigation into the advocacy group is needed. A new report from Republicans on a House oversight committee accuses ACORN of fraudulent activities and widespread corruption and calls for a criminal investigation into the advocacy group.

ACORN, or the Association of Community Organizations for Reform, has been under constant fire from conservatives since last year for its support of Barack Obama’s presidential candidacy and its planned participation in next year’s 2010 census.

But the report — to be released Thursday by Rep. Darrell Issa, the top Republican on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and Issa’s GOP colleagues — offers the first detailed account of the allegations that have dogged the organization in recent months.

The executive summary of the report says ACORN provided contributions of financial and personnel resources to indicted former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown and candidate Obama, among others, in what the report calls a scheme to use taxpayer money to support a partisan political agenda, which would be a clear violation of numerous tax and election laws.

“Both structurally and operationally, ACORN hides behind a paper wall of nonprofit corporate protections to conceal a criminal conspiracy on the part of its directors, to launder federal money in order to pursue a partisan agenda and to manipulate the American electorate,” an executive summary of the report reads.

ACORN, which was sent a copy of the executive summary by FOXNews.com, dismissed the report as a “partisan attack job.”

“We are busy fighting to stop the foreclosure crisis, to win quality affordable health care for all Americans and to build a stronger economy for working families, so we haven’t had the opportunity to read Rep. Issa’s screed at length,” Bertha Lewis, CEO of ACORN, said in a written statement to FOXNews.com.

“But an initial review indicates that the document is a recycled and repackaged partisan attack job on ACORN’s good work,” she added.

The report accuses ACORN, after receiving more than $53 million in federal funds since 1994, of blurring the legal distinctions among 361 tax-exempt and non-exempt entities to divert that money into partisan political activities.

Evidence found in the report relies in part on documents provided by former ACORN employees.

“Operationally, ACORN is a shell game played in 120 cities, 43 states and the District of Columbia through a complex structure designed to conceal illegal activities, to use taxpayer and tax-exempt dollars for partisan political purposes, and to distract investigators,” the report read.

“Structurally, ACORN is a chess game in which senior management is shielded from accountability by multiple layers of volunteers and compensated employees who serve as pawns to take the fall for every bad act.”

Kurt Bardella, a spokesman for Issa, said ACORN’s response suggests the report “hit a nerve.”

We stand by the findings of the report,” he told FOXNews.com. “There are a lot of legitimate questions raised about the political activities and organizational structure of ACORN. We’d certainly like to have a venue and platform for ACORN to respond to our report.”

Bardella added that the report is not about partisan politics.

“It’s about getting to the truth,” he said. “And when there are significant accusations and questions about millions of taxpayer dollars, those questions should be answered and any significant doubts should be addressed and the truth should be brought to light.”

It would be up to the chairman of the oversight panel to hold hearings on the ACORN report and up to the Justice Department to pursue a criminal investigation. Likewise, the census director will determine whether ACORN remains a partner with the U.S. Census Bureau to assist with the recruitment of the 1.4 million temporary workers needed to go door-to-door to count every person in the United States.

A spokeswoman for Rep. Edolphus Towns, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, did not respond to an e-mail seeking comment.
