Because Natural Health News has high standards I have chosen an article very similar to an issue I was discussing at a recent Socrates Cafe gathering. The ideas written in this post are much the same as I tried to espouse to other skeptical group members. But do remember that the "death panel" remains in the Affordable Care Act , section 3403. It is rationing of care by fiat.
Of course this is an old practice by Big Insurance. It certainly continues and will explode once 2014 arrives.
My best advice is to learn to be better able to take care of your health.
And I do hope you think about what this writer has to say -
Rescuing Medicaid and Medicare Patients The pain we feel in life is going to get worse though it is possible to go against the flow and rise above it all. Specifically the pain of poverty is going to continue to rise in the United States as Greek-style International Monetary Fund oriented austerity is being imposed on the US. Taxes and regulations are increasing and public benefits and services are going down. The US is now starting to be hollowed out as efficiently as Greece and that will be the death of the western medical system and the economy built around it.
Pharmaceutical multinationals have halted shipments to Greece because of the economic crisis. Even the Swiss Red Cross slashed its supply of donor blood to Greece because it has not paid its bills. Pharmacies in Greece describe chaotic scenes as clients desperately search from shop to shop for much-needed drugs. Greece’s Pharmaceutical Association said "around 300 drugs are in very short supply," adding that "It’s a disgrace.Congress needs to cut the debt, or that’s what the budget experts are saying. They say the government needs to rein in the mushrooming cost of the biggest budget-busting programs: Social Security, Medicaid and especially Medicare. The American administration is now wanting to make some administrative changes in the Medicare program that might lower payments to healthcare providers, while also reducing benefits or raising premiums for wealthier Medicare patients. These tinkering tactics don’t come anywhere close to addressing the monstrous programs that the country nor the people can afford anymore.The paradigm of western medicine has led to the creation of a very expensive ineffective medical system that is bankrupting the government as well as its citizens. Mainstream medicine prefers that people endure its treatments no matter what the cost. Even if its principles and practices break the nation it would rather civilization ends as long as they can continue to build proton beam radiation machines at the cost of hundreds of millions of dollars each.We all know, even doctors know, how dangerous allopathic medicine is. It is as dangerous as it is expensive. The point is that we do not need nor can we afford this form of medicine that is going to be wiped out in the next great depression as it is now being wiped out in Greece.
Bernanke at the HelmThough Bernanke seems to believe that we should all go down with the ship it does not have to be that way. Bernanke knows nothing about medicine and seems to be blind to the future because as everyone also knows he is stuck in the past. He is what I call a true blue level consciousness person, someone stuck in the levels of ideas and concepts that only exist in memory and thus the past. His high speed printing presses might be leading the bullet train to a crash at the end of the tracks but he is not looking forward only back.It’s always the Great Depression for him, the early thirties unless that is all a lie and he is just the message-boy of the people who own him, the Federal Reserve System and the rest or most of the central banks around the world.In the world of medicine the train wreck has arrived. Community-based cancer care, where until recently four out of five Americans with cancer were treated, is in serious crisis. The April 1 payment cut to Medicare mandated by sequestration will make cancer clinics go broke if they give Medicare patients the chemotherapy they need, oncologists claim. “A lot of us can’t believe this is happening,” said Jeff Vacirca, chief executive of North Shore Hematology Oncology Associates on Long Island.Cancer clinics are turning away thousands of patients due to fears that treating them could jeopardize the bottom line. Oncologists across the country are finding it impossible to administer chemotherapy drugs while keeping their clinics afloat, let alone turn a profit.This video is about people dying because of Obama care. But the conclusions are wrong. Everything is wrong when they start talking about expensive chemotherapy. Some think we should take water from a stone (money from a bankrupt government) and keep feeding the medical paradigm that does not allow for safer, less expensive and even more effective cancer treatments. Or we can save a few hundred billion and trillions through the next decade by learning to treat cancer differently.For most people that is just too big of an idea to swallow but I have published a complete form of treatment that can be administered to cancer patients at home for a cost of four to five thousand dollars for a three month program. I believe my Natural Allopathic Medicine protocol approach is safer and more effective than their miserable system of cancer treatments that have hardly changed at all through the decades.When the financial system finally splits at the seams and the economy goes down hard survival skills will include learning how to take care of oneself whether one has cancer or not. Might as well start learning unless you think you have all the time in the world and that we can magically print our way to heaven like Bernanke believes.Let him pay for the ridiculously expensive cancer treatments with his digital money. All they have to decide is to do it and presto money can fall from heaven into oncology clinics across the country. They do it for the banks why not for the cancer patients? It is time to stop thinking of just the price of gold and start thinking about how we are going to take care of our families when the system completely collapses around us as it is already doing in Greece, Spain and many other countries.
