newspeak: affordable health care

Affordable is trippling, quadrupling and raising the cost of government-approved medical treatments for many from nothing to more than they can afford.

Health, in this brave new world, is the process of approving and requiring people to ingest toxic chemical substances and strictly limiting alternatives to the dominant system of dealing with human frailties, injuries and even normal everyday occurrances like childbirth.

Care is the process of putting laws and bureaucrats in charge of ordering people who made tending to humans medical issues their life’s work, how to do, what to do, when and when to withhold treatments.

USofA in 2008: 661,400 physicians and surgeons
and treatment from them was supposedly unaffordable. So to fix this problem the ruling elite has begun implementing Obamacare adding 666,000 non-medical jobs to control that service industry.

Disgustingly, we are here:

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the United States spent more on health care per capita ($8,608), and more on health care as percentage of its GDP (17.9%), than any other nation in 2011. The Commonwealth Fund ranked the United States last in the quality of health care among similar countries, and notes U.S. care costs the most. In a 2013 Bloomberg ranking of nations with the most efficient health care systems, the United States ranks 46th among the 48 countries overloaded donkey cart

That certainly suggests the USofA is doing something wrong.

But is it too little government involvement or too much?

Is more government the proper prescription or less?

Let us look a bit at the burden being carried by our medical expenditures.

At the federal level, United States Department of Health and Human Services oversees the various federal agencies involved in health care. The health agencies are a part of the United States Public Health Service, and include the Food and Drug Administration, which certifies the safety of food, effectiveness of drugs and medical products, the Centers for Disease Prevention, which prevents disease, premature death, and disability, the Agency of Health Care Research and Quality, the Agency Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, which regulates hazardous spills of toxic pack donkeysubstances, and the National Institutes of Health, which conducts medical research.

State governments maintain state health departments, and local governments (counties and municipalities) often have their own health departments, usually branches of the state health department. Regulations of a state board may have executive and police strength to enforce state health laws.

The American Medical Association (AMA) llama packing has lobbied the government to highly limit physician education since 1910, currently at 100,000 doctors per year, which has led to a shortage of doctors[49] and physicians’ wages in the U.S. are double those in the Europe, which is a major reason for the more expensive health care.

An even bigger problem may be that the doctors are paid for procedures instead of results.

The AMA has also aggressively lobbied for many restrictions that require doctors to carry out operations that might be carried out by cheaper workforce. For example, in 1995, 36 states banned or restricted midwifery even though it delivers equally safe care to that by doctors, according to studies[clarification needed]. The regulation lobbied by the AMA has decreased the amount and quality pack Goats of health care, according to the consensus of economist: the restrictions do not add to quality, they decrease the supply of care.

Moreover, psychologists, nurses and pharmacologists are not allowed to prescribe medicines. Previously nurses were not even allowed to vaccinate the patients without direct supervision by doctors.

Rep. Kevin Brady, a Texas Republican, warns that the IRS will hire up to 16,500 new enforcers in the coming months to go after citizens who do not pay the new Obamacare tax. The expansion is said to include criminal investigators who “make cases” in order to levy penalties on scofflaws.
Mules stopping for a rest
Two multimillion-dollar government healthcare IT projects, one in Illinois and the other in the District of Columbia, illustrate what’s going on.

In Illinois, Cognizant was awarded a $74.1 million contract in June to upgrade the state’s Medicaid systems to meet the requirements of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as Obamacare.

In January, the District of Columbia awarded Infosys a $49.5 million contract to develop a health benefit exchange and replace its Medicaid and eligibility systems.


“Obamacare: A second company hired to himalayan-yaks-carrying-loads implement the healthcare law has been investigated for fraud

October 1, 2013

Yesterday America’s Watchtower covered the story of Serco: Serco is a British company which has been hired by the Obama regime to implement the healthcare exchanges which officially went into effect today. Serco is also under investigation by the British government for fraud to the tune of $80 million. Apparently that was not newfoundland carting enough to scare the Obama regime away, but if that story wasn’t troubling enough the news today gets even worse.”

“Seedco a company the Obama regime hired to help sign people up for the healthcare reform law and this company has problems of its own:

Rampant fraud on a New York City contract last year didn’t stop a major nonprofit from landing a slew of federal contracts to sign people up for ObamaCare.

Seedco, a New York-based community-development organization, was sued by the federal government for faking at least 1,400 of 6,500 job placements under a $22.2 million federally funded contract with the city.

Eighteen months later, the feds and Seedco are teaming up again, this time to help medical-insurance seekers maneuver through the maze that is the Affordable Health Care Act.”

“The news just keeps on getting better by the day but if this is not bad enough for you perhaps you have forgotten that the IRS has already lost $67 million which was set aside to help implement Obamacare.”

And the hits keep on coming…..

“the precise size of this workforce is shrouded in secrecy. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) did not reply to a question asking how many people it has hired or assigned to implement healthcare reform, and companies with government contracts worth tens of millions of dollars are similarly tight-lipped.

HHS spent $394 million through last March on contracts to set up state insurance exchanges”

“What is clear is that relatively few of the

Obamacare-related jobs are in healthcare”

… and that, folks, is how it is done…

We get a show of loading up the donkey

as if that is the only way to do the job and

government can get more out of the poor beast

when in truth an unfettered marketplace

would deliver a plethora of

pleasant alternatives

without force or fraud.
