Why Obama is Responsible for the America Ebola Outbreak
Barack Hussein Obama and his mouth pieces are telling Americans that an outbreak of Ebola in the USA is very unlikely. However, while he was doing this, Obama was not reporting on a report he received before September 2, 2014 (the actual release date of the report)predicting that there was a 25% chance Ebola break out on American shores.

Now some of Obama's henchmen claim a mass hysteria over the Ebola outbreak. No, it's not a mass hysteria over the outbreak - it's a mass outcry that the Director of the CDC doesn't know what he's spouting off, that Obama refuses any type of quarantine for those entering the USA from infected countries, that Obama is more concerned for the economy of West Africa than the people he was elected to serve, that our borders are as porous as a sieve and that Obama turns around and appoints and Ebola Czar with absolutely no medical experience who will report to Susan Rice, who also has not medical experience but is very experienced in bold face lying to the American people on behalf of Obama.

Even four star general, General John Kelly predicts that our greatest threat comes from the porous southern border that Obama refuses to do anything about. From July to September of this year, over 50,000 women, children and teenage thugs crossed the US southern border. What did Obama do? He shipped them to cities all across the country. Then a mysterious outbreak of enterovirus broke out in cities across the country, hospitalizing thousands of children and even causing the death of some. From IBD:
691 people in 46 states and the District of Columbia had come down with some sort of respiratory illness caused by EV-D68. Five children, including Eli, died from their infections.
Do note the CDC can't make up its mind as to how this very dangerous EV-D68, which has caused paralysis in some patients got into the US. In September the CDC admitted that the virus probably came to the US through these border crossing children. In October, when Americans are up in arms over Ebola and screaming to close the borders and have some sort of quarantine for those entering the US, the CDC denies the enterovirus came from those illegally crossing our borders. But then the CDC has not been forthcoming or even correct about Ebola, so who believes anything they say at this point?

Had Obama implemented strict protocols for allowing foreigners to enter the USA and even quarantined those who were arriving from countries where there has been an Ebola outbreak, the US could have prevented the exposure to Americans. The second nurse to come down with Ebola after treating Thomas Duncan exposed an entire plane full of people when the CDC told her it was okay to fly with a slight fever. Another medical worker was cleared to go on a cruise, possibly exposing another 4,000 people to Ebola. And while the CDC likes to pretend it knows how the disease is spread, it's quite clear that they do not since at least 2 nurses following protocol were infected. Of course the CDC likes to pretend that this is the nurses fault, suggesting there was some break in protocol - while the truth is that the protocol set up was too lax and the protection provided to these medical professionals was insufficient protection.

ObamaCare INCREASED USA Health Care Costs
Of course we don't have to tell you since if you are working and HAD health care coverage, you already know. For individuals purchasing their own health care, both deductibles and the cost of health care insurance have risen, in more than a few cases, dramatically! And while the Obama administration touts the number of people who didn't have insurance who now do, they don't bother to explain all those who had insurance and now don't.

Want some facts? All the answers are not yet known, but here is what we do know:
While the average annual deductible for employer-based coverage was a little over $1,000, the exchange deductibles nationwide normally topped $2,000.

Notwithstanding President Obamas specific promise to lower the typical family premium cost by $2,500 annually, premium costs actually increased.

The law reduced competition in most health-insurance markets.

Between October 1, 2013, and March 31, 2014, there was a net increase in individual coverage of 2,236,942, but there was a net decrease in group (employment-based) enrollment: it fell by 1,716,540. Enrollment in Medicaid and the Childrens Health Insurance Program (CHIP) increased by about 5 million over that same period.
So much for a government take over of health care. Oh, and there's another surprise coming down the line! Obama promised to pay any loses by insurance companies with taxpayer money.

More Troubles for ObamaCare, A Win for the States!
The US District Court for the Eastern District of Oklahoma handed down another devastating decision in the 4 state cases against ObamaCare. This case also sides with Halbig v. Burwell and notes that the President and the IRS cannot just change the law to suite themselves.
Noting that Obama administration wants to issue Exchange subsidies in states with federal Exchanges even though the PPACA (quoting Halbig) "unambiguously restricts the [Exchange] subsidy to insurance purchased on Exchanges 'established by the State,'" Judge White argues that the government's interpretation (quoting the Tenth Circuit in Sundance Assocs., Inc., v. Reno) "leads us down a path toward Alice's Wonderland, where up is down and down is up, and words mean anything." As evidence, White quotes the concurring opinion in King: "'[E]stablished by the State' indeed means established by the state - except when it does not[.]"
I encourage you read the entire article.

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Obamacare
I ran into a reference today regarding Halbig v. Burwell in regards to ObamaCare and ended up searching for more information about the lawsuit against the IRS. Fortunately for me, I stumbled on to a real find. Someone at Forbes has done all the work to lead anyone to any and all information they could ever want to know about ObamaCare.

Halbig v. Burwell and 2 other cases challenge how the IRS can write its own rule to tax businesses and individuals in states that failed to set up a state exchange for purchasing ObamaCare. The original law clearly states that the only way to receive an ObamaCare subsidy is to purchase your policy on a state exchange. It would appear that at the time, Congress thought this would force states to set up ObamaCare exchanges. However, 36 states called their bluff since the states felt they were being set up for non-reimbursed costs of Medicaid in future years. Enter a problem for the IRS. If ObamaCare is a tax, how does one "tax" a business for employees that purchase ObamaCare insurance on the FEDERAL exchange since the law only provides for that "tax" for purchases from a state exchange?

The answer has turned out to be like the rest of the ObamaCare law, when they run into a road block, Obama simply declares a new law without any approval of congress. Somehow, so far, the US Congress has not challenged these illegal acts.

What Death Panels?
When ObamaCare first hit the scene many who read the screwy chart put out could see that a panel, chosen by the US government, would determine who was too expensive and too old to treat. Of course liberals laughed and said it wasn't true. Now we hear from the largest architect of ObamaCare, non other than Rahm Emanuel's brother, Ezekiel Emanuel.
Doubtless, death is a loss. It deprives us of experiences and milestones, of time spent with our spouse and children. In short, it deprives us of all the things we value.

But here is a simple truth that many of us seem to resist: living too long is also a loss. It renders many of us, if not disabled, then faltering and declining, a state that may not be worse than death but is nonetheless deprived. It robs us of our creativity and ability to contribute to work, society, the world. It transforms how people experience us, relate to us, and, most important, remember us. We are no longer remembered as vibrant and engaged but as feeble, ineffectual, even pathetic.
I guess with that sort of reasoning we can know "understand" why liberals don't have a problem with killing babies in utero. After all, babies are a burden, they are not very creative and they have little to contribute at that young age.

What liberals and Emanuel miss, is that THIS is God's plan. There is a time be to productive and give and then there is a time to enjoy all about you and let others give.

Now that you know Ezekiel Emanuel's prospective on old age, you might want to go back and visit the ObamaCare chart again and then kiss Grandpa goodbye.

Insurance Companies Bribed With Your Money!
From Forbes:
Hidden in the midst of a 436 page regulatory update, and written in pure bureaucratese, the Department of Health and Human Services asked that insurance companies limit the looming premium increases for 2015 health plans. But dont worry, HHS hinted: well bail you out on the taxpayers dime if you lose money.
Is there anything this lawless administration won't do?

SCOTUS Reminds Obama of First Amendment
Hobby Lobby, a christian based craft store, sued to uphold their religious freedom right when ObamaCare demanded that they purchase health insurance including contraceptives. Today the US Supreme Court issued a ruling in favor of Hobby Lobby and all other closely held corporations.

One does have to wonder why this would not also apply to individuals who are force to purchase their own health care.

Why A Bureaucracy Shouldn't Handle Your Health Care
The Wall Street Journal contains a real situation experienced by pediatrician Zane F. Pollard while preforming surgery on a patient covered by Medicaid, a government program which can easily happen to anyone under ObamaCare.
In my pediatric ophthalmology practice, I have experienced firsthand how government limits a doctor's options and threatens the traditional doctor-patient bond.

I recently operated on a child with strabismus (crossed eyes). This child was covered by Medicaid. I was required to obtain surgical pre-authorization using a Current Procedural Terminology, or CPT, code for medical identification and billing purposes. The CPT code identified the particular procedure to be performed. Medicaid approved my surgical plan, and the surgery was scheduled.

During the surgery, I discovered the need to change my plan to accommodate findings resulting from a previous surgery by another physician. Armed with new information, I chose to operate on different muscles from the ones noted on the pre-approved plan. The revised surgery was successful, and the patient obtained straight eyes.

However, because I filed for payment using the different CPT code for the surgery I actually performed, Medicaid was not willing to adjust its protocol. The government denied all payment. Ironically, the code-listed payment for the procedure I ultimately performed was an amount 40% less than the amount approved for the initially authorized surgery. For over a year, I challenged Medicaid about its decision to deny payment. I wrote numerous letters and spoke to many Medicaid employees explaining the predicament. Eventually I gave up fighting what had obviously become a losing battle.

Every surgeon must have the option to modify and change a surgical plan according to actual anatomical findings that only become apparent during surgery. For example, if a general surgeon operates on a patient with a suspected acute appendicitis and finds that the patient is actually suffering from an ovarian cyst, that doctor must be free to change the plan and do what is best for the patient. The physician should not be denied payment simply because of a rigid government requirement to follow only the pre-approved plan.
Many surgeries end up with complications like the one above; the surgeon finds something different than he expected while performing the surgery. After all, doctors are not gods nor can they always see the problem through medical technology without actually opening up the patient.

Under ObamaCare and Medicaid doctors will be faced with guessing possible billing codes for which they need approval prior to surgery, opening up a patient and then if the guess was wrong, closing up the patient and going back for a new billing code. Do you want to have surgery twice because of a bad billing code? Two surgeries will also extend your hospital stay (and perhaps decrease a positive outcome or your life), expanding costs of medical care. Surgeons will also be less available since they will have to do some surgeries twice.

Thankfully Dr. Pollard did the right thing for his patient, however doctors will soon go out of business if they are forced to not only accept the lower payments by the government but also not be paid for some of the surgeries they perform.

Harry now can't even remember what he said a month ago. Should Nevada keep a senile senator?

American People to Dumb to Sign Up for ObamaCare
Well at least that seems to be Harry Reid's explanation as to why the Obama Administration has to break the law and extend sign-ups. After all this Internet thing is new!
