IPAB: President Obama's NICE Way To Ration Care To Seniors
.
.
Can we predict the future of IPAB?
Over a decade ago, Britain set up its National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE), a group of appointees whose pronouncements limit medication and technology usage based on costs.
Despite the endless complaints and numerous lawsuits by doctors and citizen groups in Britain, NICE served as the model upon which IPAB was based.
A Board of appointees like the IPAB, its role is to reduce health spending.
NICE has become a rationing Board, holding costs down by limiting available treatments.
Ninety percent of England’s hospital trusts are now rationing care by following NICE’s long list of “recommendations” that includes stopping access to drugs that prolong life or cure breast cancer,
stomach cancer,
kidney cancer,
macular degeneration (causing progressive blindness),
multiple myeloma,
rheumatoid arthritis,
early Alzheimer’s disease,
MS,
and osteoporosis that causes hip fractures and premature death.
NICE also restricts hip and knee replacements, cataract surgery, procedures for back pain, infertility, steroid injections and cancer screening like PAP smears.
David Stout of the NHS Confederation representing primary care trusts explained to the BBC that “the NHS faces considerable financial pressures and scarce resources have to be used as effectively as possible.”
Under NICE, treatments are routinely refused on the grounds of limited resources and the need to make decisions based not on individual’s or family’s choice, but on the government’s assessment of the benefit.

Has anyone this week been seeking out Mitt Romney’s views on the Gaza crisis? Have there been calls to put him on a plane and have him sit down with Benjamin Netanyahu or Mohamed Morsi, and sort things out? Hillary Clinton handled that instead, and we seem to have a ceasefire, while the urgent questions about Romney have been whether that was really him, photographed blurrily, pumping his own gas, or what he and Ann thought of Jacob imprinting on Renesmee in the new “Twilight” movie—which they saw over the weekend—and which vampire coven reminded them most of the Republican primary field. Last month, Romney was talking about the near-psychic bond he had with Netanyahu; that may have been nice for them, but it hardly seems to matter anymore to anyone else. By the time there was a ceasefire deal, on Wednesday, the Romney radar was alive to his trip to Disneyland with his wife and grandchildren, according to reports sourced back to park visitors who tweeted pictures. Has a candidate ever shifted so swiftly and unceremoniously from the realm of the auto bailout to that of Luigi’s Flying Tires? Looking at the pictures of Ann and Mitt sitting in the sun at the center of one of said tires, right where a hubcap should be, the tricky thing isn’t dispelling the idea that it was all a Photoshop hoax, but instead trying to imagine them anywhere else, like in the White House, or even on a stage in Ohio.

You cannot rationalize or converse with an individual who uses race as his only argument.

Most of America is way beyond racial boundaries, but the liberals want to keep blaming it for everything.

Their entire agenda is discredited if they would admit racism is not a factor in critical thinking peoples opinions.

The mass media propaganda machine has brainwashed them to promote the in-fighting and keeping your eyes off the real problems. Simple divide and conquer, nothing else, and weak minded follow.

The GOP is embarrassed by and have totally turned their backs on Romney, but just a short time ago they were saying he was the best choice to be the most powerful man on Earth. What hypocrites.
GEE! Talk about throwing your own kind to the wolves.

A little more than two weeks after the election, Mitt Romney has not so much vanished as been rendered a camp object—an electoral oddity, like a button from a last-century race with the name of a defeated Vice-Presidential candidate you can hardly remember learning (Charles W. Fairbanks, John W. Bricker). There has been no decent interval for him and his campaign, no gap between rejection and ridiculousness. By this time, four years ago, John McCain and Barack Obama had sat down and talked in an office building in Chicago, and released a joint statement about working together. That didn’t quite happen, but McCain never really stopped talking, or even—as in the past couple of weeks as he has pushed and pushed, beyond credibility, his complaints about Benghazi and Susan Rice—stopped shouting.

No one seems to care what Mitt Romney has to say about Susan Rice. The main concern of people in the Republican Party for which he was a standard-bearer seems to be that he still plays any role at all. He embarrasses them. If he has a presence in the Party now it is an awkward penumbra. Even his moment in the headlines last week, when he was heard talking about how Obama had bought the loyalty of women, minorities, and young people with “gifts,” was as a disembodied voice. He didn’t even get to show his face when insulting the electorate. Republicans “don’t need to be saying stupid things,” Bobby Jindal, the governor of Louisiana, said in response. The implication seems to be that they really don’t need Romney to do anything at all.

There are other things that embarrass Republicans. Romney’s get-out-the-vote app didn’t work. He really thought he would win, and was unprepared when he didn’t. The same is true of a lot of Republicans, though. And we haven’t even got to the tell-all campaign-memoir stage yet, where we get to hear what made Paul Ryan sulk or Ann Romney mad.

But at a certain point, how embarrassed are you allowed to be at the candidate your own party nominated, and hailed, and whose worst gaffes—including the “gifts” line—are clumsy expressions of your actual policies? At a certain point, you can’t treat the electorate like visitors at a theme park who can pretend that as long as the giant mouse (or elephant) is smiling at them everything will be all right.

“When you’re in a hole, stop digging. He keeps digging,” Lindsay Graham said of Romney, on “Meet the Press.”“We’re in a death spiral with Hispanic voters because of rhetoric around immigration. And candidate Romney, in the primary, dug the hole deeper.” He wasn’t a lone figure with a shovel; there was a whole big-donor-powered earth-mover working with him. But that, now, is the G.O.P.’s problem, not his. While Graham and others are working on their death spiral, Romney seems happily fascinated by the twirling of Luigi’s Magic Tires. And it’s better that he is.

Then why do you keep posting about him?

To tell you the truth box,,,,,here's who we give our money to and guess what? this money was flowing to these places long before Obama took office, but you can blame him if you want to......

This is mind boggling: No spin,,,,,,,just the facts..

LQQK HERE:

http://www.vaughns-1-pagers.com/politics/us-f...

We have people starving in this country and we have to give money to these countries that really hate us.
Just about every country hates us ( Ron Paul told us that in the debates ).......why is that?
No matter how much money we throw at them they still hate us and probably laugh at us too.

How about those 'gifts ' our government gives away.

Every dollar of the $2.6 trillion in surplus Social Security revenue has been spent by the government on wars and other government programs. The money is gone. It does not exist in the form of cash, bonds, or anything else. You can only spend money one time so, since it was all spent, there was nothing to invest. The money was replaced with government IOUs which serve as an accounting record of how much Social Security money was spent. But the IOUs are not marketable and cannot be converted into cash. So why is the government and the media continuing to say that Social Security has a $2.6 trillion surplus and can pay full Social Security benefits until 2037? All that Social Security really has at this time is the inflowing revenue stream from the payroll tax, and that stream is no longer large enough to pay full benefits. If the government had saved and invested the surplus money in pre-existing marketable Treasury bonds, as it was supposed to do, the trust fund would today contain $2.6 trillion in “good-as-gold” marketable Treasury bonds which could be resold in the open market to raise cash with which to pay benefits. But the government did not save any of the money. Why doesn't the government publicly acknowledge the awful truth about the trust fund?
