Question by Red Fox Ace: What does the medical community itself think about Obama’s health care reform?
So much hubbub has been made in the media, but what do doctors, physicians, nurses, and surgeons themselves think about Obama’s health care reform?
Strongly in favor? Strongly opposed? Split?
Answer by Scott
Of the doctors I have talked to much of the staff in hospitals in upstate new york, I have noticed that an overwhelming number of them strongly oppose the health care reform. This is simply due to the fact that since everyone gets free health care, people will go to family physicians and hospital emergency rooms for the common cold. This racks up the money spent on treating them and takes time away from patients who truly need help. It also causes shortness of staff and shortness of supplies.

Question by doobie43: What do you think about this letter written by a Pastor’s wife in regards to the Government?
And it came to pass in the Age of Insanity that the people of the
land called America , having lost their morals, their initiative,
and their will to defend their liberties, chose as their Supreme
Leader that person known as “The One”.
He emerged from the vapors with a message that had no meaning; but
He hypnotized the people telling them, “I am sent to save you. My
lack of experience, my questionable ethics, my monstrous ego, and my
association with evil doers are of no consequence. For I shall save
you with Hope and Change. Go, therefore, and proclaim throughout
the land that he who preceded me is evil, that he has defiled the
nation, and that all he has built must be destroyed.” And the
people rejoiced, for even though they knew not what “The One” would
do, he had promised that it was good; and they believed. And “The
One” said, “We live in the greatest country in the world. Help me
change everything about it!”
And the people said, “Hallelujah! Change is good!”
Then He said, “We are going to tax the rich fat-cats.” And the
people said “Sock it to them!” “And redistribute their wealth.”
And the people said, “Show us the money!” And then He said,
“Redistribution of wealth is good for everybody.”
And Joe the plumber asked, “Are you kidding me? You’re going to
steal my money and give it to the deadbeats?” And “The One”
ridiculed and taunted him, and Joe’s personal records were hacked
One lone reporter asked, “Isn’t that Marxist policy?” And she was
banished from the kingdom!
Then a citizen asked, “With no foreign relations experience and
having zero military experience or knowledge, how will you deal with
radical terrorists?” And “The One” said, “Simple. I shall sit with
them and talk with them and show them how nice we really are; and
they will forget that they ever wanted to kill us all!” And the
people said, “Hallelujah!! We are safe at last, and we can beat our
weapons into free cars for the people!”
Then “The One” said, “I shall give 95% of you lower taxes.” And
one, lone voice said, “But 40% of us don’t pay ANY taxes.” So “The
One” said, “Then I shall give you some of the taxes the fat-cats
pay!” And the people said, “Hallelujah!! Show us the money!”
Then “The One” said, “I shall tax your Capital Gains when you sell
your homes!” And the people yawned and the slumping housing market
collapsed. And He said, “I shall mandate employer-funded health
care for EVERY worker and raise the minimum wage. And I shall give
every person unlimited healthcare and medicine and transportation to
the clinics.” And the people said, “Give me some of that!”
Then he said, “I shall penalize employers who ship jobs overseas.”
And the people said, “Where’s my rebate check?”
Then “The One” said, “I shall bankrupt the coal industry and
electricity rates will skyrocket!” And the people said, “Coal is
dirty, coal is evil, no more coal! But we don’t care for that part
about higher electric rates.” So “The One” said, “Not to worry. If
your rebate isn’t enough to cover your expenses, we shall bail you
out. Just sign up with ACORN and your troubles are over!”
Then He said, “Illegal immigrants feel scorned and slighted. Let’s
grant them amnesty, Social Security, free education, free lunches,
free medical care, bi-lingual signs and guaranteed housing…” And
the people said, “Hallelujah!!” And they made him King!
And so it came to pass that employers, facing spiraling costs and
ever-higher taxes, raised their prices and laid off workers. Others
simply gave up and went out of business and the economy sank like
unto a rock dropped from a cliff. The banking industry was
destroyed. Manufacturing slowed to a crawl. And more of the people
were without a means of support.
Then “The One” said, “I am the “The One” – The Messiah – and I’m
here to save you! We shall just print more money so everyone will
have enough!” But our foreign trading partners said unto Him, “Wait
a minute. Your dollar is not worth a pile of camel dung! You will
have to pay more…” And the people said, “Wait a minute. That is
unfair!!” And the world said, “Neither are these other idiotic
programs you have embraced. Lo, you have become a Socialist state
and a second-rate power. Now you shall play by our rules!”
And the people cried out, “Alas, alas!! What have we done?” But yea
verily, it was too late. The people set upon “The One” and spat
upon him and stoned him, and his name was dung. And the once mighty
nation was no more; and the once proud people were without
sustenance or shelter or hope. And the Change “The One” had given
them was as like unto a poison that had destroyed them and like a
whirlwind that consumed all that they had built. And the people
beat their chests in despair and cried out in anguish, “Give us back
our nation and our pride and our hope!!” But it was too late, and
their homeland was no more.

Question by c(^-v-*)o: Do you think Obama/Baucus healthcare “reform” is for special interest groups…not people?
At a meeting last April with corporate lobbyists, aides to President Barack Obama and Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.) helped set in motion a multimillion-dollar advertising campaign, primarily financed by industry groups, that has played a key role in bolstering public support for health care reform.
The role Baucus’s chief of staff, Jon Selib, and deputy White House chief of staff Jim Messina played in launching the groups was part of a successful effort by Democrats to enlist traditional enemies of health care reform to their side. No quid pro quo was involved, they insist, as do the lobbyists themselves. ………………..“What you’ve had was the Senate and the White House sitting down and cutting deals with special interests,” he said. “I don’t think that’s quite what the American people signed up for when the Obama campaign said that they were going to limit the influence of special interests in this White House.”
Criticism — from the left and the right — of the PhRMA deal and the coalitions became more pointed after it was revealed in August that the coalitions were paying two firms with close ties to the White House to cut ads: AKPD Message and Media, which was founded by White House senior adviser David Axelrod, still owes him $ 2 million and employs one of his sons — and GMMB.
Liberals contended drug companies were being let off the hook. And congressional Republicans distributed talking points asserting the PhRMA deal raised “serious questions as to whether the drug lobby is helping to bankroll a multimillion-dollar severance package for one of the president’s senior advisers.”
Baucus Bill Sticks To Pharma Deal That Supposedly Wasn’t Struck
The bill unveiled by Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus has been blasted as a major giveaway to insurance companies. But the even bigger winners are the drug makers.
That’s because the Baucus bill matches up, nearly to the letter, with the secret deal that he, the White House and Big Pharma struck over the summer — a deal the various parties roundly denied had been struck when it went public.
In August, the Huffington Post published a memo that outlined exactly what each side was going to do for the other. And Big Pharma was getting a lot more than they were giving up.
Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America senior vice president Ken Johnson said that the outline “is simply not accurate.” White House spokesman Reid Cherlin concurred: “This memo isn’t accurate and does not reflect the agreement with the drug companies.”
But now that the bill is out, let’s fact check those denials.

Neither dems nor repubs back the Baucus Bill.
Give your answer to this question below!
It was long feared that the aging of the baby boomer generation would bring about a healthcare crisis in the United States, and our nation’s politicians have planned accordingly. Cuts to Medicare and Medicaid benefits have been implemented several times over the last decade, and congress has recently proposed a package that would reduce benefits 40% over the next 9 years, while raising premiums 20%. Still, every cloud seems to indeed have a silver lining, as one positive to result from the increased burden to the health care system can be seen in the number of health industry jobs projected to become available over the next ten years. In the next ten years, the single fastest growing employment sector in the U.S. will be in gerontology and senior healthcare.
Still, a new problem emerges when considering the supply of trained healthcare workers vs. the number of adults whose aging is expected to increase the population of the 55 to 65 year old category over the next decade. Worker shortages for the healthcare industry are inevitable, which means career opportunities will be not only plentiful, but more lucrative overall as a result.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, healthcare related jobs are expected to grow faster than the national average for all other industries through 2014 and likely beyond. The nursing field, in particular, is the second fastest-growing occupation for job growth over the next decade. The number of current nursing professionals approaching retirement is growing far faster than the number of nursing program graduates, and recruitment efforts by healthcare organizations are already underway. Nursing salaries have risen substantially over the last several years, and increases are expected, as competition for workers becomes more prevalent. Sign on bonuses that were once unheard of are now commonplace, and those entering the field have more options than ever in terms of the type of facility they wish to work in.
Home health care aid positions are expected to rise as well, with more and more Americans choosing to forgo assisted living options and instead remain independent. Jobs on the administrative end of the healthcare industry are also on the rise as insurance company’s brace for the tide of health claims expected to hit the industry. As with all employment sectors that have a limited supply of qualified personnel and an increasing demand for them, wages and salaries will continue to rise until positions are filled.
Those entering college or technical school programs can find increased salary potential and job security in the healthcare sector. While the price of health care is rising, so are the potential employment opportunities in an industry that will struggle to meet the demands of the current aging population.
