Get your ACA for Xmas for only $10

Hurry and buy now or you might have to pay much more money for your ACA premiums after this sale expires on it was never on sale. But hey he sure did like making lists. His best one was the Tuesday Kill List.

Here's Barry back when he was sane.

But then the paid speeches opportunities started rolling in and he decided to hell with his legacy because Trump is already it and he went for the big bucks.

This too is his legacy.

The Killing Fields of American Health Care

American health care is being crushed under the iron heel of a cabal of ruthless and merciless robber barons. Indeed, this primitive and backward system continues to be a source of horrendous suffering, as the health insurance companies, hospital executives, and pharmaceutical companies repeatedly place their insatiable lust for profit over the lives of their fellow Americans. And the health care oligarchs should be proud of what they have achieved: For they have created a health care system that is unrivaled in the industrialized world for its degradation and barbarity.

Hell is empty.
And all the devils are here.

than pay another farthing to vampire profiteers selling “advantageous” plans that insert for profit insurers between the standard Medicare coverage the government provides and my medical needs. Medicare is not perfect and does not cover everything, even with all the optional parts that they offer, but it is pretty straight up honest coverage that includes a huge number of physicians and hospitals and give patients more control over their care than any of the managed care options that are being sold as “advantageous”. They are, in fact, advantageous; to the insurer’s bottom line, but not likely to the customer/patient.

Those too young to qualify have a number of relatively expensive options to choose from, all being touted by the company store at Health Care dot Gov. Pray that you live in good health until you qualify for Medicare, and that it still exists when you need it. In the meantime the high cost of healthcare in America and the substandard health outcomes of our for-profit health care systems will be the only choice you will find being peddled by our for-profit serving government.

Robber barons is exactly what Obama gave us. Just another transfer of wealth so insurance companies can still determine who lives and who dies. Read the article I excerpted. It talks about how drug companies are raising prices for drugs that are very cheap to make. Just more class warfare IMO. "Not in good health? Shuffle off and die. Quickly!" But don't worry. Nancy is working on this as we speak.

Except they keep you in a network.
Have a heart attack while visiting your out of town/network relatives, hoo, boy, you pay a price.
I guess the most shocking thing to me in this essay was that psychiatrists and everything about them has been prostituted.
I did not know that chemical imbalance had been debunked.
Since I am often involved in child custody disputes, over and over, "She overmedicates my kid"; "my kid is so lethargic from meds, I refuse to give them to him"; "my kid is out of control, needs meds"...and on, and on, and on. And until Snoopy brought her link to my attention, I thought chemical imbalance was legitimate. I intend to research this more, bring it to some parents' and some judges' attention.
I have long since noticed the together in bed with drs. and pharmaceutical sales, but did not know they also got into bed with the FDA.
Good times! For those fuckers!

@on the cusp of bad for you chemicals in your food and beverages brought to you by corporations like Monsanto/Bayer e.g. glyphosate, corn syrup in everything, herbicides/pesticides/biocides and other hormones, antibiotics, fungicides from meats to fruits. Then the same companies manufacture health aids to soothe our pains and chemically alter our plaques, heart rhythms, and so many other things.

Often it's the same corporation ruining our health with food then selling us pharmaceuticals for what ails us.

Growing my own and buying from my neighbor chickens, eggs, beef, lamb I can see grazing on nearby hillsides sounds good to me.

@on the cusp other private insurance plan. My poor mom was given one and only one expert on her glaucoma, who was determined that an over eighty year old little lady with maybe 20% remaining eyesight in her right eye should have surgery.

We paid out of pocket to get her to the real deal, who said, leave your mom in peace. Surgery will not help her regain sight and recovery will surely be awful for her.

We helped her cope with the remaining connection of her brain to an eye no longer working, and she adapted and did fine.

As Molly often writes about Advantage plans, I can only agree that they are privatization of Medicare.

I was appalled when the 'let's medicate your energetic kid' started happening. Most of the anti depressant meds are contraindicated for people under a certain age. When did we start seeing kids acting up in school? When the curriculum changed and it became rote and constant testing. Kids of course got bored and started acting out. And parents got more busy and stressed out because they were working 2=3 jobs and they had no time for their kids and too tired of weekends for getting outside.

Prozac came along and lots of doctors put people on it without really understanding the side effects of putting people on it who weren't really clinically depressed. Can they help? Yep. Can they hurt though? Absolutely. Prozac sent me into a major manic episode with constant suicidal ideation. Oh what fun that was. I couldn't get off them fast enough. I just wish people had time to research what doctors put them on and that they had more time to get outside and do something physical. Besides loving to walk and owing it to my dawgs to make their lives more fun I walk to keep my mood up. Rain, snow or shine I am out walking daily with less than 10 days staying home because of the wind or a real downpour. Even walked in a huge snowstorm, broke my ankle that day and was out walking again within a week. Crutches in the snow... yeah, but.

Does Obama have his own studio to record videos in? Is it in his $11,000,000 Marthas Vineyard vacation estate? To paraphrase Garret Morris "Politics has been berry berry good, to me?"

I really thought that first tweet might be snark but nope, there is our hope and change empty suit showing his incredibly arrogant self touting the cheap Christmas "gift" of the ACA while he rakes in millions and people die, or go bankrupt (yay!), due to that shitty and overpriced coverage. Just wow. He thought it was time he shared his list? He really ought to realize it is time he goes the hell away and takes Her with him! Go enjoy your payoff Barack and STFU.

After the tax breaks of course and having to pay really high deductibles, buy hey you too can join the ranks of 500,000 people who have to declare bankruptcy every year because of this crap democrats and Obama gave us. The democrats pretended that they were working with the republicans on it and let them take out anything good in it and then they passed it through reconciliation anyway and could have put those good things back in it. Gee I wonder why they didn't?
