President Trump Passes Universal Health Care, Usurps Democrats!

President Trump Passes Universal Health Care, Usurps Democrats and Destroys Neocon Never Trumpsters.

.

How Will He Do It?
Well, he could just pass U-Care with a 15% VAT, control medical prices and procedures, and cap profits.*

OR

He could roll this out and call it a bi-partisan deal.

On Medicaid: Raise limit to $23k, full coverage with profit caps that are fair, these will be tax deductible for hospitals, labs, clinics, doctors and nurses. Add co-pays from $24k up to $28k.

From $29k open up the free market across state lines.

On Medicare: For a recipient with no other insurance, lower the age to 55 based on income; same formula as above on income levels until age 65 and making under $250k. Yes, if you earn more than $250k a year in retirement you had and are still having a very nice, safe and free life in this country, you can give a little back in co-pays.

 

If President Trump can get close to this he’ll win the 2020 election in a landslide and perhaps be even more loved than Reagan, Kennedy and FDR.

 

Note: This plan for US Universal Health Care Would Be For American Citizens Only. You will need notarized documents as proof in order to be eligible. States along with a Federal Government Oversight Board can negotiate prices and procedural costs with hospitals and doctors, using simple one page forms.

 

Further: For non US citizens cash up front or a payment plan can be arranged, this may include Administrative fees.

If payment is not made within 90 days the country of origin will be billed the full price of the medical care with fees.
If destitute, private charities can step in or pro-bono work can be provided from a medical institution or college.

For those who are US Citizens, but have lost all records, a grant to replace official documents will be provided if proven indigent.

In the rare case that someone who was born in the US without any documentation, and is under the age of 65, those persons will have to go before a board of governors, provide proof of past employment or care, along with testimony and witnesses, otherwise they will need to buy private insurance or seek help from a charity clinic. Unfortunately, something like this could take a great deal of time in the very beginning. Anyone caught lying or falsifying documents will be prosecuted under the full extent of the law and denied U-Care.  Any falsification by foreigners will mean confiscation of all property and possessions and instant deportation.

Any falsification of income made by US citizens will mean a 5 year denial of U-Care, including Medicare. You will have to rely on Private Insurance or Charity Clinics for those 5 years.

It’s a start, eh?

If you have any questions,  better ideas or plans put your thoughts in the comments and I’ll add them to the list.

*FYI: Most medical innovations, R&D and the like are done on the tax payer dollar through universities, more and more innovations are coming from foreign schools and government funded programs.

The US Is An Enron Economy

Allow me to tell you why the US is going to break up – Balkanize – into separate states/regions.

1. You can not run a civilization or a society on an Enron Economy – and the USA is an Enron Economy.

2. An Enron Economy is build on sucking the life force out of everything it touches leaving it for dead.

3. Those who run or are involved IN the Enron Economy can not stop or change its trajectory, even if you punish and send those in charge to prison – it will find others to replace them. An Enron Economy is always doomed to fail, it lives and strives for failure.

4. You can not change the system from inside, it is completely and utterly corrupt, rotten to the core. You must bury it in a concrete silo and start over. If you do not, those within its purview and anyone it touches must become a slave to maintain it.

So like the mafia, which is basically what an Enron Economy is, you will always have a kingpin(s) and that is anti-democracy; as is in the end, unregulated capitalism.

The modern human being needs seven things to survive:
Shelter
Clean Food and Water
Education
Health Care
Productive Purposeful Work
Communication
Rest

There is no reason to compete any longer for resources – just work to maintain, clean up the current mess and make the world a better place to live.

Finally, a little perspective: You are on a big rock hurling through space with no particular place to go, and the universe is indifferent to your needs – stop worshiping a book – get along, at least don’t go out of your way to hurt another, build a fence if you have to.

Ralph Nader & Ron Paul Interviewed Together

.

.
Ron Paul, Ralph Nader agree on ‘progressive-libertarian alliance’
.
Ralph Nader and Ron Paul on The SITUATION ROOM 2008

.
Ron Paul: “We Have Only One Party in Washington!”
.
.

Is it a wonder that Wall Street Banks and Corporations have such a stronghold on our country and political systems that forming an alliance between a Libertarian and a Progressive candidate is now the right perhaps, the only thing to do?

We are long past party affiliation, it is about our core values and finding common ground in our philosophy.

What Unites Libertarians and Progressive?
Both Against the War.
Both Against Corporate Subsidizes.
Both Against Bank Bailouts.
Both For Auditing the Federal Reserve.
Both For Liberty.

Implementation may be different, but the following concerns are the same?
Affordable Health Care.
Better Educational System.
Good Living Wage Jobs.

How do we bridge the gaps?
I believe where we agree most; the end of war, corporate subsidies, bailout, central bank and protecting our liberties will guide us to sound resolutions on health care, education and jobs.

What the two party duopoly has to offer us, in fact what they have only offered us for more than 30 years are endless wars, corporate subsidies, more corporate bailout, hidden bank books, less liberty, gifts to a faltering corporate health care system, an unequal, failing and unaffordable educational system, low wages, meaningless and redundant jobs.

It’s a no brainer.

The World is waking up.

Iranian Health Care for Mississippi

Over the last several months, American representatives and Iranian officials have swapped visits and trade secrets. No, they’re not politicians — they’re doctors. In the last 30 years, Iran has cut its infant mortality rate by 70 percent; that’s something to pay attention to, regardless of a nation’s nuclear ambitions.

According to the Los Angeles Times, a group of physicians in the Mississippi Delta hope to open “health houses” modeled on the 17,000 medical outposts in Iran. Since 1980, Iran has had small clinics in each rural community, staffed by trained members of that community focused on preventative care. These nurses’ aides then go door-to-door performing routine tests and determining if anyone needs to be referred to the hospital. “The community health workers will know who has diabetes, who has high blood pressure, who is 10 or 12-years-old and pregnant. They will know it because they live in the neighborhood and see them at church or the corner store,” said Dr. Aaron Shirley, the state’s first black pediatrician, who has spent his career working with Mississippi’s rural poor and is leading the charge for a three-year, $30 million health house pilot program.

Mississippi has the highest infant mortality rate in the nation, running neck and neck with poverty stricken nations such as HAITI – 50 percent higher than the national average, and ranks near the bottom in many other health metrics including obesity rates, teenage pregnancies and diabetes. “I ain’t never heard of Iran. But we could sure use somebody’s help,” said 80-year-old Erleen Smith, who lives alone in a drafty shotgun shack in Baptist Town, Mississippi.

An American Thanksgiving

as long as you’ve got your health
.
.
Estimating the Risk of Food Stamp Use and Impoverishment During Childhood
Between the ages of 1 to 20 years, nearly half (49.2%) of all American children will, at some point, reside in a household that receives food stamps. Households in need of the program use it for relatively short periods but are also likely to return to the program at several points during the childhood years. Race, parental education, and head of household’s marital status exert a strong influence on the proportion of children residing in a food stamp household.

The best way to give thanks is by giving of your time to help another human being.

Happy Thanksgiving

Name The Dead

Name the Dead

Nearly 45,000 people die in the United States each year – one every 12 minutes – in large part because they lack health insurance and can not get good care, Harvard Medical School researchers found in an analysis released on Thursday.

“We’re losing more Americans every day because of inaction … than drunk driving and homicide combined,” Dr. David Himmelstein, a co-author of the study and an associate professor of medicine at Harvard, said in an interview with Reuters.

Overall, researchers said American adults age 64 and younger who lack health insurance have a 40 percent higher risk of death than those who have coverage.

The findings come amid a fierce debate over Democrats’ efforts to reform the nation’s $2.5 trillion U.S. healthcare industry by expanding coverage and reducing healthcare costs.

So This is Capitalism

capitalismSo this is Capitalism, eh?

The New Job Expectation and Motto of the US should be, “Shut up, and be glad you’re alive. Now, get back to work or you’ll be replaced.”

What a terrible atmosphere this is creating, Americans living under greater stress and fear to provide for themselves and their families. Apparently, this is just how corporations like it, and while President Obama wants to improve our image in the world we’re not looking so good to each other right now.

Hard to convince me we are not under the throngs and duress of a Corporate Financial Coup.

1.  Fact – President Obama has surrounded himself with people from Goldman Sachs his largest campaign donor.  Quid Pro Quo?

2. Fact – President Obama hired and reappointed the same people in Federal Reserve under Bush, the people who failed the system, the one we are suffering under now.

3. Fact – President Obama is backing down, he’s changing his mind and allowing corporate tax cheats to get a pass.

4. Fact 1 & Fact 2 President Obama has allowed Big Pharma and Big Insurance  to continue their theft while Fact 3 still, 44,000 uninsured Americans die needlessly every year due to lack of health care; that’s 120 people each day. If that many Americans died in Iraq or Afghanistan we’d lay complete and utter waste to those countries.

5.  …and speaking of Afghanistan, FACT even after the announcement of being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize President Obama decided only days later to quietly send 1300 more troops to Afghanistan.

Democrats FAIL.

Time for a change, time for a Third Party and the time to start is now, because apparently the good will of the people and their vote for change meant nothing.

Someone should have mentioned to the Nobel Committee before they voted, you reward good behavior after the fact, not what you think someone says they might do.

Now before the Obama droolers are all over my dissatisfaction with this president, let me remind them Bush and a Democratic Congress bailed out the Too Big To Fail Banks FACT within a week and that bailout money is still going towards bankers bonuses (President Obama –  FACT a. Before and Fact b. After) and profits while Americans are losing their jobs and homes;  FACT one every 13 seconds; and that number will double by year’s end; that’s one every 6.5 seconds.

Meanwhile, the rest of us pay for these losses, bankers toxic waste, dumped on us by these big banks as they continue to FACT get fees for foreclosing on us all. (looking for a better and more credible sources, but banks are charging the homeowners and ultimately collecting those fees from the tax payers).

Here’s a good question the American People haven’t even wrestled with, “What are our priorities as a nation and as a people?” Are we still in, “As long as it’s not me” mode heading towards “You’re on your own buddy” abdication?

FACT – It is you.

Finally, to the die hard Obama supporters, the bloom is off the rose and here’s a no-brainer piece of advice to the Teabaggers, LGBT Community and Health Care Advocates Protesters, find a way to join and hold hands or right now, this is as good as it gets.
