The Deceptions of Affordable Health Care

March 28, 2012

Whether you live in LaLa land and assume you will never need health care, or live in fear that the person you just bumped on the street exposed you to some virus or bacteria.  Without affordable health insurance, you will be shit out of luck IF anything happens to hurt you.  Each side, of the health care argument, will exaggerate their positions to appeal to the least socially conscious and most easily influenced.  The Right Wing Fire and brimstone has convinced a lot of people that the devil of the 1950s is trying to take over America … this riles up the older people who experienced the “RED SCARE” and the “COLD WAR”.  Today’s American is slipping into a state of unconsciousness designed with disinformation marketed by a Corporate Cabal of drug makers and energy providers.  They sugar coat their pills of disinformation with promise of sexual fantasies provided by their products.   America is supposed to be proud of their Medical System, but reality shows it has turned to a manufacturing assembly line with very little humanity left in it, at the upper management level.  Nurses and many doctors see the disconnect and contradictions of the system, but have little power to fix it.  Those who can afford the trip can get better and more personal attention by traveling to other countries for their medical treatments. Americans are being fed lies from both sides of the political health care argument and do not consider the consequences. Take the time to listen to this young lady who experienced the unthinkable and suffered worse treatment than the compensated victims of US Military collateral damages.

‘Hot Cripple’: The Nightmare of Living Uninsured in America

  Today almost 50 million Americans do not have health care coverage, according the latest Census Bureau figures.

In today’s corporate empire called America, health care is the carrot for anyone who needs a doctor.  In the old days, people accepted the fact that they get sick and die, especially if you are old or poor.  That concept is unacceptable in today’s society.  America wants to take care of their citizens, or so they want you to believe. To the supposed Right Wing religious radical and corporate puppet master, you are poor or elderly or have a debilitating condition and don’t have health care, you are expendable. You are expendable as long as they can generalize and package you into a faceless category of a non-productive citizen.  They want you to get a job and take care of yourself.  That’s a great idea … in today’s economy, those jobs are precious and have hundreds of applicants with tons of experience.  Those hiring are not looking for cripples, elderly, or mentally damaged employees.

In today’s unaccountable corporate America, the amount of toxic waste that is consuming our land and water and digital media, causes actual physical damage to the least prepared human.  The rise of contamination illness worries these corporations, who do not want to be held accountable for their actions, nor do they want to pay the resulting medical costs.  So, they gather the easiest influenced, the extreme right wingers and NeoCons to protect them from having to pay for their indescretions.

Here is a word that no longer applies to the American Right Wing, ALTRUISM.

WIKI: Altruism play /ˈæltrɪzəm/ is a concern for the welfare of others. It is a traditional virtue in many cultures, and a core aspect of various religious traditions, though the concept of ‘others’ toward whom concern should be directed can vary among cultures and religions. Altruism is the opposite of selfishness.

The term altruism may also refer to an ethical doctrine that claims that individuals are morally obliged to benefit others. Used in this sense, it is the opposite of egoism.  The concept has a long history in philosophical and ethical thought. The term was originally coined in the 19th century by the founding sociologist and philosopher of science, Auguste Comte, and has become a major topic for psychologists (especially evolutionary psychology researchers), evolutionary biologists, and ethologists.

While ideas about altruism from one field can have an impact on the other fields, the different methods and focuses of these fields lead to different perspectives on altruism. In simple terms

altruism is caring about the welfare of other people and acting to help them.

American arrogance refuses to hold Insurance Companies accountable for making their services affordable.  This deliberately discriminates against the ignorant and deluded humans who think they will live forever with perfect health.  American arrogance breeds more ignorant and deluded and throws them under the bus.  This is a form of abuse that has not been fully thought through.

Insurance companies have scripted the opposition to the Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act.  These same Insurance Companies have bought support from churches, politicians and scripted them to label this act as “SOCIALISM” and will force FREE AMERICANS to pay for deadbeats.

Know your facts before you follow your political guru into a worse nightmare. As of the bill’s passage into law, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimated the legislation would reduce the deficit by $143 billion[162]  AND The CBO estimated that repealing the entire PPACA (including both its taxing and spending provisions) would increase the net 2011-2021 federal deficit projections by $210 billion.[182]

WIKI: Health insurance is insurance against the risk of incurring medical expenses among individuals. By estimating the overall risk of health care expenses among a targeted group, an insurer can develop a routine finance structure, such as a monthly premium or payroll tax, to ensure that money is available to pay for the health care benefits specified in the insurance agreement. The benefit is administered by a central organization such as a government agency, private business, or not-for-profit entity.[1]

United States -Main articles: Health insurance in the United States and Health care in the United States

The United States health care system relies heavily on private health insurance, which is the primary source of coverage for most Americans. According to the CDC, approximately 58% of Americans have private health insurance.[33] Public programs provide the primary source of coverage for most senior citizens and for low-income children and families who meet certain eligibility requirements. The primary public programs are Medicare, a federal social insurance program for seniors and certain disabled individuals, Medicaid, funded jointly by the federal government and states but administered at the state level, which covers certain very low income children and their families, and SCHIP, also a federal-state partnership that serves certain children and families who do not qualify for Medicaid but who cannot afford private coverage. Other public programs include military health benefits provided through TRICARE and the Veterans Health Administration and benefits provided through the Indian Health Service. Some states have additional programs for low-income individuals.[34]

In the late 1990s and early 2000s, health advocacy companies began to appear to help patients deal with the complexities of the healthcare system. The complexity of the healthcare system has resulted in a variety of problems for the American public. A study found that 62 percent of persons declaring bankruptcy in 2007 had unpaid medical expenses of $1000 or more, and in 92% of these cases the medical debts exceeded $5000. Nearly 80 percent who filed for bankruptcy had health insurance.[35] The Medicare and Medicaid programs were estimated to soon account for 50 percent of all national health spending.[36] These factors and many others fueled interest in an overhaul of the health care system in the United States. In 2010 President Obama signed into law the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. This Act included a main provision which the American medical insurance lobby group America’s Health Insurance Plans had called for, namely, a mandate that every American must have medical insurance (or pay a fine) as a quid pro quo for “guaranteed issue”, i.e. the dropping of unpopular features of America’s health insurance system

such as premium weightings, exclusions for pre-existing conditions, and the pre-screening of insurance applicants. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is pending review for constitutionality by the United States Supreme Court. On March 26-28, the Supreme Court will hear arguments regarding the validity of the Act. Within the next few months, a final Supreme Court ruling is expected.

WIKI: The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA)[1][2], commonly called Obamacare,[3] is a United States federal statute signed into law by President Barack Obama on March 23, 2010. The law (along with the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010) is the principal health care reform legislation of the 111th United States Congress. PPACA requires individuals not covered by employer or government insurance plans to maintain minimal essential health insurance coverage or pay a penalty unless exempted for religious beliefs or financial hardship, a provision commonly referred to as the “individual mandate“. The Act also reforms certain aspects of the private health insurance industry and public health insurance programs, increases insurance coverage of pre-existing conditions, expands access to insurance to 30 million Americans,[4][5] and increases projected national medical spending[6][7] while lowering projected Medicare spending.[8]

The bottom line is, if you don’t have health insurance, can’t get health insurance, need health insurance or just figure “Que Sera Sera”, this bill needs your undivided attention without all the hype surrounding it.  Open your eyes, cut through the crap and see for yourself the consequences of having no safety net for yourself and your family.

Whatever Will Be, Will Be

Insha’Allah

Oh Well

Whatever

Tell them all to go back to work and quit making this country socialist!
