One man's treason is another man's patriotism. If it was not for politics in everything done, the cost of medicine would be much lower. Corruption reeks in America. We passed the point of the payers outnumbering the payees by an amount justifiable enough to pay for all of this. And it won't be getting better anytime soon. And if you open your eyes you will notice that Hitler is alive and well right now. Police and the courts are becoming militarized in their actions and increased powers. The era of the uniform is upon us and Homeland Security will be the new SS, KGB, and other organizations that humanity around the world so dearly loved. So accuse others of being Hitler while you sit there so smug.

It should be illegal to make ANY exceptions in the enforcement of ANY law. All laws need to apply to EVERYONE equally and completely. If these idiotic laws our representatives pass would apply to them as well, I'm sure a lot of this garbage would never get out of committee, especially Obamacare.

If bamacare is so bad then republicanticans should let it happen and blame him at this terrible plan and leave his worst legacy people. Problem is its all BS and the republicanticans know damn well the middle class and everyone will benefit from Obama care. Insurance companies, doctors and drug companieswill no longer be able to screw us over.

Bad idea. Republicans only answer to multinational corporations that pay them off just like Democrats. Romney wrote Obamacare if you didn't already know. We need a third party and we also need to lock up some of these politicians.

That's very optimistic given how badly its worked so far.

Liberals don't go along with tyranny. Where the hell are they opposing this crazy stuff? Authoritarians are fake liberals.

Here's one of your ALEC Republicans who"s governor of Florida.

Rick Scott: The Bernie Madoff of Health Care

http://blog.healthcareforamericanow.org/2009/...

Having Scott lead the charge against healthcare reform is like tapping Bernie Madoff to campaign against tighter securities regulation. You see, the for-profit hospital chain Scott helped found–the one he ran and built his entire reputation on–was discovered to be in the habit of defrauding the government out of hundreds of millions of dollars.
This is the man who will be delivering what Politico called the "pro-free-market message."
A Texas lawyer who shared a business partner with George W. Bush, Scott started his health company, Columbia Hospital Corporation, in 1987. Its growth was meteoric, expanding from just a few hospitals to more than 1,000 facilities in thirty-eight states and three other countries in 1997. As his firm gobbled up chains, like the Frist family's Hospital Corporation of America (HCA), it became the largest for-profit hospital chain in the country. By 1994, Columbia/HCA was one of the forty largest corporations in America, and Scott had acquired a reputation as the Gordon Gecko of the healthcare world. "Whose patients are you stealing?" he would ask employees at his newly acquired hospitals.
…Not long after joining the company in 1993 as the supervisor of reimbursement for the Fort Myers, Florida, office, Schilling noticed things weren't quite kosher. "They were looking for ways to maximize reimbursement…which ultimately would improve the bottom line."
One way they did this was to fudge the costs on their Medicare expense reports. They were "basically keeping two sets of books," says Schilling. The company would maintain an internal expense report, what it called a "reserve" report, which accurately tallied its expenses. "And then they would have a second report, which…they would file with the government, which was more aggressive." That report would "include inflated costs and expenses they knew weren't allowable or reimbursable. The one they filed with government might claim $5 million and the reserve would claim $4.5." Columbia/HCA would pocket the difference.

By 1997 the FBI was investigating Columbia/HCA. Days after agents raided company facilities armed with search warrants, Scott was forced to resign. In 2000 the company pleaded guilty to fraud and agreed to pay the government $840 million. Other civil settlements would follow, ultimately totaling a staggering $1.7 billion, making it the largest fraud case in American history.

It's easy to hate this much governmental corruption. No guns, no money, what's an American to do? We really need the armed forces to shoot or at least arrest ALL of the Senate and Congress. It's past the point of them just doing politics to get each other richer, now they money printer is out of control.

The Republican ALEC

psychiatry's diagnostic "bible as a fraud perpetrated on society for the sole purpose of enormously increasing their income base by falsely labeling and drugging individuals, particularly helpless little children, for profit. Furthermore, they are calling this fraudulent labeling and drugging of little children a gross violation of human rights and child abuse.

The video depicts the manual as a "house of cards" built solely on the opinions of certain psychiatrists who actually vote "disorders" into existence.

It shows how the psychiatric/pharmaceutical industry spends billions of dollars a year in order to convince the public, legislators and the press that psychiatric disorders such as Bi-Polar Disorder, Depression, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD/ADHD), Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, etc., are medical diseases on par with verifiable medical conditions such as cancer, diabetes and heart disease. This is simply a way to maintain their hold on a $84 billion dollar-a-year psychiatric drug industry that is based on marketing and not science.

The American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) is the book that contains names and descriptions of 374 so-called mental disorders (including everything from depression to “caffeine withdrawal disorder”). Doctors, psychiatrists and other medical and mental health practitioners use the DSM to diagnose patients. Each DSM mental disorder description carries a code that clinicians can use to substantiate claims for health insurance reimbursement.
