Liberty and Freedom
A month or two ago a TPP leader emailed a link to Dr. David Janda's presentation to a MI Tea Party group on health care.
Because it was a long presentation, there were 13 YouTube clips. Took me a month to watch them all, but in the process I outlined what is in each segment and the links plus outline are given below.
If you have friends, family, and co-workers who still think socialized medicine is a good idea, and they are not entitlement recipients, Janda's facts are revelatory. You can use the outline to pinpoint an issue your friends may not know about (rather than sending them the 90 min presentation).
I'm also including a few details I've found in my own reading. Those who object to the term "death panel" are clearly not familiar with E. Emanuel and Tom Daschle's work.
Since we now have to work to get Obamacare repealed, we have a LOT of public education to do, and the Tea Party really has to keep this issue in the forefront so lazy Americans don't forget what and how this new law is going to affect us.
FYI--Bouchard and Cox appear to be the only gubernatorial candidates that support the concept of Health Savings Accounts, an idea that has merit and seems to have reduced health care costs for many Americans without relying on the taxpayer.
For those who don’t believe that rationing is the end result of the Obama-Pelosi version of “health care reform”, I recommend reading Ezekiel Emanuel’s book The Ends of Human Life. As the title suggests, the book is all about denying care to the very young and the elderly.
E. Emanuel is Special Health Policy Advisor to the White House. He and former Senator Daschle were the primary architects behind the health-related part of the stimulus bill and also the health-related part of the health reform bill.
Or check out Emanuel’s online article below –it examines 5 different mathematical equations for determining who does--and who does not--receive care:
In it, E. Emanuel and his co-authors make it clear that medicine must always be “rationed”—as if it is some sort of non-renewable resource.
Emanuel also discusses the core concept of “promoting and rewarding social usefulness” of human beings—a concept familiar to communist regimes. Ergo, any human who is not “socially useful” to the state will not receive health care.
He also discusses “morally relevant values”—because most values he does not consider relevant.
Remember, Emanuel is the one who said:
Is this the kind of doctor you want?!
Also see former senator Tom Daschle’s book Critical: What We Can Do About the Health-Care Crisis.
This link is to Janda’s appearance on Glenn Beck, not as detailed as his presentation but shorter:
It was taped prior to the passage of the health care bill; the concerns Janda addresses are now law that goes into effect in 2013.
mostly speaker intro
Half of the “health care reform” plan was part of the stimulus bill, NOT the health care bill. From p. 1400 ff, the stimulus bill is all about rationing and enforcement boards. The bill allocates $20.6 billion for these boards. Board members were appointed by Obama two weeks after the stimulus bill passed and they have been working ever since.
Stats on current Medicaid fraud, Medicare costs. No tort reform in either the stimulus or health care bills, since 75%+ of current politicians/advisors are lawyers. Tort reform would be bad for their business.
When the American Medical Assn (AMA) makes a pronouncement, remember that less than 20% of physicians are members of the AMA. The AMA does NOT speak for the vast majority of physicians. AMA supported Obamacare.
