Obamacare repeal failure
Many of you already know that Trump has been stopped from doing almost everything he campaigned for, not by his own will. And the recent failure to repeal Obamacare is a prime example. It is a prime example of the now self evident truth that we no longer have a representative government.
I am not sad Ryancare (falsely labeled Trump care) did not get implemented, because people did not ask for a new version of Obamacare, they asked for a complete and total repeal of all of it. Who wants medical insurance that costs $500 a month, has a $5,000 deductible, and then gets used as a racket to feed a massively corrupt medical system $50,000 for things that in other countries cost $100 cash in hand, no insurance needed?
If people are even talking about health insurance at all, they are supporting the American medical scam that has become so entrenched that no one in America can understand that a fairly priced medical system won't even have, as a component, any insurance at all. And I have understated this.
Google has duly expunged the Anascorp story, where a woman was charged $100,000 for treatment with two shots of Anascorp after a scorpion sting, which in Mexico would have cost less than $200 total. This is the problem with American medical: The system is nothing at all but an extortion racket, where people are forced to destroy their lives paying for treatments, which in a modern system, should be practically free. And Americans just suck it up and call it normal.
LET ME INTRODUCE JIM STONE CARE: A HEALTH PROPOSAL FOR AMERICA:
1. If any hospital charges more than a 30 percent markup on medical items, and asks for more than $5,000 for any surgery;
2. If any hospital charges more than $200 per night for a private room, or more than $65 per night for a 4 bed divided room;
3. If any dispensary charges more than $20 as the top price for any 7 day antibiotic (or antibiotic provider asks for so much a dispensary can't provide it for $20 after charging 30 percent markup no matter what antibiotic it is;)
4. If any doctor charges more than $30 for a diagnostic visit, that can be truncated to 15 minutes; $50 for a half hour
5. If any manufacturer produces a wilfully damaging product, such as all vaccines grown in human tissue and/or have adjuvants that are based on the same materials that form the building blocks for the body's biological systems,
CONSEQUENCE: without warning, a SWAT team will arrive and round up the hospital/factory/dispensary/doctor's fleeing management that scammed the people so badly and jail them.
SOUND AUDACIOUS? WELL, IT IS TIME FOR AMERICA'S TOTALLY SCAM MEDICAL TO BE STOPPED IN ITS TRACKS TODAY. IT APPEARS ONLY OPEN WARFARE WILL ACCOMPLISH THIS.
Political: If any bureaucrat continues supporting a system where the medical records of an individual are not completely open, and not stored as the sole copy, within the individual's residence, - if any bureaucrat continues supporting the current system where medical records and comments are sealed and held by the medical community, rather than the individual, said bureaucrat is to be blackballed and imprisoned no less than FIVE (5) years. The American system of not allowing people to be the sole holders of their own medical records should be a class B felony AT LEAST on the part of the people who made this system a reality.
2. If any bureaucrat demands more from a medical practitioner than a single script issued after each visit, for the patient to add to their own medical record on their own terms; - a paperwork process so simple it happens in 30 seconds at the end of a visit, said bureaucrat is to be blackballed from politics for the rest of their life.
Folks, the Mexicans have a system like the one I described. Hospital, private room: $100 per night, and it is like a hotel room at a place like the Marriott. If you wanted a crap hole hospital the room will be a LOT LESS. A vast majority of American hotels won't match the quality and cleanliness of a high class Mexican hospital room. Modern, clean, comfortable. For $200 you get an attached conference room for business meetings while you are sick. On top of this, the niceness so vastly exceeds American hospitals that it would be an absolute revolution to get America to where Mexico is with this.
When you go to a pharmacy, the doctor is there, and it will be a good doctor. If you don't like a certain doctor, choose another pharmacy. For practically nothing, the doctor will give you a full physical and check up, and give the CORRECT medication if needed. Total cost for something like an ear infection? less than $20, antibiotics included. And it does not stop with that. A majority of pharmacy doctors will set broken bones and give you stitches, and the end cost will always be under $50 if you can't find a doctor who will do it for free. Claudia just told me that there are many places that will take care of broken bones for FREE. Not state subsidized. You don't need any medical coverage at all for that, and the state is not the one paying. If you go private, Stitches are typically $1 USD each. It will cost about $15 to set a broken arm, and another $30 for the cast.
Obviously if you have more money, you will have a private doctor but even in these cases a broken arm and 20 stitches would never ring up more than $200 in the worst case scenario, x-rays and all. And since x-rays actually only cost $10 to do, and it takes less than an hour to set an arm and apply a cast, with the cast being nothing but gauze mixed with cheap plaster, why should it cost $2,500 plus, the way it would in America? Broken arm X-rays in Mexico are crystal clear, and cost less than $20 leaving a margin for the hospital to turn a 100 percent profit. Why should an arm x-ray cost up to $1,000 in America?
BOTTOM LINE: AMERICAN MEDICAL IS A CRIMINAL SYSTEM. THERE IS NO CONCEIVABLE EXCUSE FOR IT. IT IS A MASSIVE EXTORTION RACKET. THEY TAKE PEOPLE IN DIFFICULT SITUATIONS THAT ARE CHEAP TO FIX, AND DESTROY THEM. TODAY'S AMERICAN HOSPITAL IS EQUAL TO A TOW TRUCK DRIVER WHO, BECAUSE YOU ARE TRAPPED IN A CAR THAT WILL FALL AND KILL YOU, CHARGES $50,000 TO PUT A HOOK ON IT AND PULL YOU OUT IN 3 MINUTES. EASY TO SOLVE PROBLEM. PAY UP OR DIE, BECAUSE WE HAVE A GUN TO YOUR HEAD.
The criminal racket HAS TO STOP. IF TRUMP WANTS TO ADDRESS THE REAL MEDICAL PROBLEM AMERICA HAS, HE HAS TO OPENLY STATE THAT THE ENTIRE SYSTEM IS A FILTHY ROTTEN CRIMINAL EXTORTION RACKET FROM TOP TO BOTTOM, AND BEGIN CRIMINAL PROSECUTIONS.
NO OBAMACARE. NO RYANCARE. Simply TOTALLY de-regulate medical, do the proper jailings and let competition do it's job. THAT is the real health care fix.
I would never believe this if I was not in Mexico to see it for myself. Contrary to what you are told in the scamming MSM, Mexicans are not walking around spewing disease and dropping body parts. Their medical here is more than equal to America's and it is actually affordable with no insurance or government subsidy at all.
Contrary to what you are brainwashed to believe, America has horse crap medical care. Dark dungeon spooky hospitals that stink, are proven to not be sanitary, and present like death centers. Hospitals don't have the same feel in Mexico, they, aside from whatever is wrong with you to put you there, are quite cheery. Yes, they all have WIFI that people use the whole day from their beds if they are able to.
I have had a medical incident here that would have destroyed me in America, yet medical is SO CHEAP all I had to do is say I had a problem, and people who read this site took care of it in a day. That was nice to have happen. But it also shows that medical in Mexico is affordable. My problem was not "cheap" but I am certain it would have been end-of-life in America. $50,000 AT LEAST, with no real cure, only symptom management. The diagnosis for the latest problem was 20 pages long! The problem was so technical that everything had to be analyzed, including things like ph balance, blood toxin load, exact mineral levels to see what was doing what, I saw the diagnostic list and can't even begin to say everything that was on it. Stuff you'd never even think about. Caveat: She kept the list. She wanted me as a permanent patient. So what if she is going to fix problems (she obviously did) and not just manage symptoms for max profit.
Mexican medical costs for services you can cross reference with American prices easily, these prices are not subsidized or discounted, or in "cheap hell holes", these will be done in top level "cheery" "marriott" type hospitals:
Sonogram, complete with all print outs: $10-20
X-ray, complete with the plate/film/whatever it is called, it will be at least 11X17 in size: $20-30.
Cat Scan: Various prices, but less than $100.
MRI in the latest newest 2014 model GE MRI "donut" machine with 3 teslas or more: $150 - 250
Open bed MRI: Up to $350. These are used for comfort or when someone is too claustrophobic to handle a donut MRI.
These prices are current. Go check them out in the U.S. and see what your scam level is set at.
BOTTOM LINE: MEDICAL REFORM IN AMERICA EQUALS ENFORCEMENT OF ETHICS LAWS AND LITTLE ELSE. If this is not done, the problem will not be fixed AT ALL no matter what "Trump dream care" ends up being.
my new epithet for the normies and wannabes is "clever monkeys." when all people do is follow their nose and tongue and gut and groin, they are just monkeys. very clever, sometimes, but monkeys nonetheless.
In a day of anti-corruption protests across Russia, thousands of people crowded into Moscow's Pushkin Square on Sunday for an unsanctioned protest against the Russian government, part of a wave of demonstrations taking place throughout the country. For the Moscow demonstration, around 8,000 people took to the streets according to police. As the rally continued, police used loudspeakers to call on the protesters to disperse. A number of people were detained for disorderly conduct, among whom was the prominent leader of the anti-Putin opposition.
Alexei Navalny, the anti-corruption campaigner who is leading the opposition to President Vladimir Putin, was arrested while walking from a nearby subway station to the demonstration, according to Associated Press journalists at the scene.
Opposition figure Aleksey Navalny waves as he sits inside a police van after after being detained during a rally in Moscow, Russia, March 26, 2017
Navalny and his Foundation for Fighting Corruption had called for the protests, which attracted crowds of hundreds or thousands in most sizeable Russian cities, from the Far East port of Vladivostok to the European heartland. The protests were the largest coordinated outpourings of dissatisfaction in Russia since the massive 2011-12 demonstrations that followed a fraud-tainted parliamentary election.
There were no immediate figures on the demonstration size in Moscow, but the one-hectare Pushkin Square was densely crowded as were sidewalks on the adjacent Tverskaya Street, suggesting that more than 10,000 people had showed up. Law enforcement say that somebody sprayed “irritant gas” in the square, but rejected reports that it was part of a police action.
Scuffles with police erupted sporadically and some demonstrators were arrested, including a gray-haired man whom police dragged along the pavement. "It's scary, but if everyone is afraid, no one would come out onto the streets," said 19-year-old Yana Aksyonova, explaining why she attended.
According to AP, the protests Sunday focused on reports by Navalny's group claiming that Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has amassed a collection of mansions, yachts and vineyards. The alleged luxuries include a house for raising ducks, so many placards in Sunday's protests showed mocking images of yellow duck toys.
"People are unhappy with the fact that there's been no investigation" of the corruption allegations, said Moscow protester Ivan Gronstein.
Protests, some sanctioned and others in violation of a municipal ban, also took place in other Russian cities on Sunday, including Novosibirsk, Barnaul, Tomsk, Krasnoyarsk, Khabarovsk, and Vladivostok.
In the Pacific port city of Vladivostok, police forcefully detained some demonstrators near the city's railway terminal, in one case falling down a small grassy slope as they wrestled with a detainee.
In St. Petersburg, an unsanctioned opposition rally was held just next to another unconnected gathering of demonstrators who rallied for traditional values. Police estimated the number of participants in the opposition event at around 3,000 in St. Petersburg, and said that three individuals were facing administrative action for minor violations.
The rally in Novosibirsk, which was sanctioned by the local authorities after a court ordered them to overturn a ban, attracted around 1,500 people, according to the mayor’s office. At another sanctioned event in Tomsk, around 400 protesters showed up, according to local law enforcement.
In Vladivostok, 25 activists have been detained by police for trying to violate a ban on public gatherings. Police released those detained shortly afterwards. The usual procedure for such cases of detention (which is not an actual 'arrest') is to identify the individuals for potential administrative action and then release them.
Some demonstrators showed up with their faces painted green, a reference to a recent attack on Navalny when an assailant threw a green antiseptic liquid onto his face.
It is unlikely that anti-Putin sentiment will sweep Russia, however. As recently as last Devember, the approval rating of the Russian President hit a near-record high reaching 86.8%. according to the Russian Center for Public Opinion Research (VTSIOM). The share of respondents who said that they trusted the president was at 62.1 percent, a slight rise from 61.3 percent a week ago, trending upwards from the 59.2 percent recorded in early December.
why doesn't he use his magical frequencies to heal the poor and sick?
he is a snake oil salesman appearing to peddle a hypnosis effect on broken spirited middle class people for more money.
just as bad as the pharmaceutical/medical industry if you ask me.
