KILL Medicare D!!!!

"Last week saw the launch of the enrollment period for the new Medicare prescription drug plan. Judging by the initial reception by beneficiaries, Congress and the market alike, the Medicare drug benefit is off to a rocky start. That should come as a surprise to no one for a program that was designed to fail.

 

For starters, the White House insisted that the final December 2003 Medicare Drug bill prohibit the government from negotiating prices directly with drug companies, a key demand of the pharmaceutical lobby. The same price leverage enjoyed by the Veterans Affairs Department and its program beneficiaries was surrendered by Medicare, with the predictable results described in the House report this week. In another poison pill added by the insurance and pharmaceutical lobbies, the Medicare Prescription Drug Modernization Act beginning in 2010 provides $ub$idie$ to private insurers to compete with traditional Medicare."

What will be lost to Single Payer is boat loads of campaign money kickbacks.

 

There are 8 lobbyists per elected official in this mess. There are tons of misinformation scams being perpetrated in this mess.

 

Both lobbyists and misinformation scams are being funded with health care dollars.

 

The industry has been known to blow $1.4 million dollars a day to save their multi trillion tax dollar subsidized guaranteed profit system.

 

This misinformation money was funneled through the US Chamber of Commerce.

 

A multi trillion $$$$$ scam!!!

 

== 8 lobbyists per elected official = expensive mouthpieces

 

== Misinformation campaigns @ $1.4 million health care dollars a day

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/07/05/AR2009070502770.html

 

Yes folks we in America are being duped by the industry and some elected officials.

 

Next some extra added attractions:

 

== Healthy humans seldom spend what they pay out to the insurance industry!

 

== Consumers are charged billions in overcharges aka have you received your refund yet? http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/06/24/AR2009062401636.html

 

== Politicians as shareholders:   Hmmmmmmmmmmmm hard to be objective!

A multi trillion $$$$$ scam!!!
