You Are Entitled to Die for Our Profits

Here is well known case of insurance company death panels. http://www.opednews.com/articles/opedne_mary_sha_071223_teenage_girl_dies_so.htm

The right says the left will use "productivity" as a criteria for life or death. The insurance company’s only criteria is if they can avoid paying. You wouldn’t have to stand on the steps of any hospital for very long to find a similar case but most victims don’t realize what has been done to them is even wrong.

It's been beaten into everybody for thirty years that we aren’t "entitled" to health care. If you die because they won’t treat you it’s your fault. When the Republicans were in charge they also wrote into Federal law that you can’t sue insurance companies for doing this. You can identify a real conservative because they don’t see any problem with this. Lower class Republicans even accept this for their own children. Evolution will take care of this over the long term but they will probably make us all extinct in the process. Maybe the cockroaches will do better.

I've had several for profit group health plans and to be honest being on Medicare is soo much easier. I have never had a Doctor or a hospital tell me that they don't handle Medicare patients, the medical field knows what Medicare will pay for and what they don't pay for and it has been much easier to work within the system unlike each Doctor having to learn the tricks of each health plan and all the variations there of, finding out the "preferred providers" and having to argue about what is covered and what isn't covered and at the bottom of each statement is that little cheery note reminding you just how much of your "Lifetime" benefit you have left. Rationed health care is a fact of life for most of us and all the for profit plans I've had have been more rationed that Medicare. I just don't understand.

Funny how socialized law enforcement and socialized fire departments seem to be okay...so that that socialized EMT from the Fire Department might be okay but it is soo much better for us to go to a for profit hospital so that we can get sixty-five cents for every health care dollar versus the ninety to ninety-five cents we get with that none-government Medicare.... Go figure.

"Keep your government hands off my Medicare"..Can't fight a battle of wits with an unarmed and brain dead person!
