How ObamaCare Is a Prescription for a National Disaster
President Obama’s landmark health-care initiative, long touted as a means to control costs, will actually add more than $340 billion to the nation’s budget woes over the next decade, according to a new study by a member of the board that oversees Medicare financing. Well, as Nancy said, “we have to pass the bill to see what’s in it”
The study is set to be released Tuesday by Charles Blahous, a conservative policy analyst whom Obama appointed in 2010 as one of two public trustees for Medicare and Social Security. His analysis challenges the conventional wisdom that the health-care law, which calls for an expensive expansion of coverage for the uninsured beginning in 2014, will nonetheless reduce deficits by raising taxes and cutting payments to Medicare providers. Everyone knows this will cost you and me, the tax payers, money and we know and we understand that Obama a documented liar!
(WASHINGTON POST) Shortages of prescription drugs have been a growing concern for the past six years. They nearly tripled from 2005 to 2010 and reached record levels in 2011 as manufacturers ceased operations or ran into production problems. Why is this? The Food and Drug Administration has been scrambling to respond, helping firms resume production more quickly and approving emergency imports of supplies. Recent approvals of new suppliers helped ease shortages of two crucial cancer drugs. Well this is good news!
In some cases, lifesaving treatments have been delayed, sending patients on desperate searches for needed medicines, doctors say. This is bad news! Shortages have also caused injuries from mistakes and at least 15 deaths around the country since mid-2011, according to the Institute for Safe Medication Practices, a nonprofit that tracks medication errors. The mistakes included confusion about dosing and preparation of substitutes…Wholly Cow! Better read that again
More than 210 drugs are in short supply or totally unavailable, according to Bona Benjamin of the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists. The majority are generic injectable medications widely used in hospitals, including drugs used to relieve pain, fight cancer or infections, anesthetize surgical patients, treat cardiovascular disease, and manage psychiatric conditions. Why is this? Obama care and socialized medicine was to fix the best health care system in the world, remember?
Critical intravenous nutritional supplements and drugs for controlling attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder are also hard to find, according to the pharmacists group. Natural supplements! Yes, I know this 1st hand as I hand the FBI visit my house on orders from the FDA because I was taking herbs from China that could help fight the cancer I have. The FDA shut down the importation of these natural supplements because they are in bed with and get their marching orders from big pharmaceutical companies. There is a huge push to stop all natural treatments and cures because the FDA does not control the non pharmaceuticals and they hate that. The government wants total control! Under Obama Care they will get it.
Most hospitals rarely get advance notice of the shortages, explanations of what caused them or estimates of how long they will last. So pharmacists scramble. They repackage higher concentrations into smaller doses. They find substitutes, which can often be more expensive. They ration drugs. So, Mr Obama, why is this? You would think that after 2,600 some pages in your health care law, this would not happen or perhaps…this is why the 2,600 plus pages, so you could hide your real agenda inside this massive government takeover of the American health care system!
