Possibly the Harvard graduates at the Republican National Committee are not smart enough to understand that if you shrink the birth rate to below replacement rate, there won’t be enough people to support the elderly, and society will switch to a plan of denying health care and other support in order to conserve resources. On the other hand, it might be that they have the same plan for our elderly, disabled, and very young as the democrats do. The birth rate in 2011 is as low as ever recorded in the U.S. That announcement comes from theCDC’s data for 2011.
During the time leading up to the election, your friendly Pharmer was busy, and had no time for the RNC. She was too busy sending donations to the candidates they threw under the bus, among the myriad other work, domestic and political activities.
Soo, yours truly decided to drop an opinion at their site today. It’s short and sweet.
Mr. Priebus et al,
Social policy is intertwined with fiscal policy inextricably. Much of the reason for the debt crisis, to which the republicans paid lip service, is due to population demographics. It’s a conservative estimate that over a hundred million Americans are NOT here due to the propensity of people for killing their offspring prior to birth. If you were wondering how to fix social security and medicare, please get a clue.
I was practically born a republican, and proudly 1st-voted for Ronald Reagan over Jimmy Carter. The RNC does not want me or my kind in the party. We do not fit the agenda. After the RNC violated Reagan’s 11 commandment by throwing pro-life candidates under the bus for incorrect phraseology, it became clear that it’s time for me to move on. I donated to the candidates whom you tossed out.
I am a blogger, public speaker, and health care professional, I am no longer Republican, and am taking as many people to tea-party with me as I can.
There’s 8 billion dollars coming from tax payers which will essentially serve as an election fund for Obama. It will prevent the Medicare Advantage Plan from crashing until just after the election.
The current regime understands that if seniors lose this particular medicare plan, and get funneled back into the standard plan, they’ll get upset and vote Obama out.
Some anonymous leftie at the New York Times praises Obama’s decision to trample on the human rights of religiously affiliated health care employers. The article wanders from this to weeping about those who oppose being made to pay for the recreational drugs and abortions desired by others.
Yes, birth control pills, when used for that purpose are recreational drugs, and almost all abortions are recreational procedures. They are optional, and support the pursuit of sex as a mini-vacation, purely for the fun of it.
This short editorial covers a lot of territory, moving next to the Texas rule mandating sonograms before abortions (allowing detection of ectopic pregnancies, and permitting more safety for the woman.) This regulation does not mandate that a woman be shown her sonogram, but does require that basic information be offered to her in order to support informed consent for the abortion procedure.
It is vastly amusing to see a leftist decrying “intrusion into the doctor patient relationship”. Medicare, medicaid and thousands of health care regulations are all about government standing between the patient and the physician. The vast majority of this intrusion has been at the behest of the leftists. One measure to provide for patient safety and informed consent with respect to abortion causes these same people to go ballistic.
Another mechanism by which Obamacare will gut the care of the elderly, in his deficit reduction plan, is to further cut medicare and medicaid reimbursement so that health care providers are not able to stay in business while serving that patient base, in compliance with government regulations. This leaves those individuals without the promised “free” Obamacare, which has been the intention all along.
$500 billion represents a slowdown of the growth of medicare over 12 years, Sebelius says.
How do you think that medicare growth will slow down, particularly with the baby boomers entering that phase of life?
Through killing off the elderly by means of the worst shortages of meds for critical care that we’ve ever seen, through the “unintended” consequences of HIPAA “privacy protections” and through direct rationing of care…. just thought you ought to know.
In addition, Sebelius reveals double counting of the “savings” as revealed in this hearing, and questioning by Rep. Shimkus of Illinois.
Remember when the lefties screamed about Palin’s use of the word Death panels, to describe the government choosing who and who would not get medical treatment?
Well, they forgot about that, and here you see the esteemed New York Times operative, Paul Krugman acknowledging Sarah Palin’s pinpoint accuracy.
KRUGMAN: They should have said, “Okay, look, Medicare is going to have to decide what it’s going to pay for. And at least for starters, it’s going to have to decide which medical procedures are not effective at all and should not be paid for at all.” In other words, it should have endorsed the panel that was part of the health care reform. If the commission isn’t even brave enough to take on the death panels people, then it’s doing no good at all. ……………..
No. Some years down the pike we’re gonna get the real solution, which is gonna be a combination of death panels and sales taxes. It’s going to be that we’re actually gonna take Medicare under control and we’re gonna have to get some additional revenue, probably from a VAT.
Pharmer would like for people who are covered by medicare to understand at this time, that the Dems have already screwed them to the wall, and respond appropriately in Nov of 2010, as well as in the preceding primary elections.
Pharmer is calling 877-762-8762 or 202-224-3121 or 202-225-3121 today, but the lines are busy. Would you like to help keep the Congressional switchboards occupied?
(Just heard Tom Coburn of the Fed Appropriations Committee tell the democrats that any federal appointments promised to them by Obama (to buy their vote) will be made public, and stopped by the republicans.)
