Last week, while looking into the Supreme Court decision on “Obamacare,” I stumbled onto some startling information. Everything we think we know about insurance and medical care is a lie, all that stands between you and being murdered by a bankster is a doctor who may or may not choose to save your life, even if he or she has to break the rules.
These rules exist by the millions, rules by hospitals, by insurance companies, by the VA, by Medicare and Medicaid, all of them deny care, deny drugs, deny lifesaving procedures and the rationale is generally based on “not being former Vice President Dick Cheney” who is wanted for war crimes in dozens of countries.
Imagine the hospital team that had to decide who got the new heart beating in Cheney’s chest. Do we give it to a young mechanic or a man whose heart failed 40 years ago, someone who has caused death and destruction for decades, a man who can’t travel because he faces arrest and execution at the hands of any genuinely free nation on earth.
This is a man accused, very rightly so, of starting wars, ordering killings, responsible for the slaughter of over a million people, the death of thousands of servicemen, the tens of thousands of suicides (numbers no longer reported are that high), the disability of half a million or more and the collapse of the world economy.
He didn’t do it by himself but is considered, with people like Dick Rumsfeld, Henry Kissinger and George W Bush behind him, part of the biggest criminal cabal in world history. Sometimes I think TV is filled with shows about Hitler and the Third Reich only so Cheney’s face won’t be there whenever the term “mass murder” is mentioned.
As the rules stand now, war criminals come out on top every time, they get the heart, they get the experimental artificial heart no one else could have, they get flown around in helicopters, they have Secret Service escorts when, in truth, the majority of people in the world are wondering why he hasn’t been hanged already.
Cheney is just one of the inequities.
The big thing is that, for many decades now, health care has been rationed out. First of all, fewer and fewer employers in the US have comprehensive health care insurance. Only members of unions have insurance, though not like in the past. Currently 10% of public workers and 7% of private workers in the United States belong to trade unions.
All others covered workers, estimated at another 14%, have limited plans that deny things like transplants, exotic cancer treatments and newer medications which are, in most cases, more effective than those insurance companies authorize.
Let’s get those numbers straight. It isn’t 60% that are insured but closer to 8% with “full insurance” while the total with full and partial coverage comes to around 24%. In addition to this, 31% of the population, giving us that other figure, has limited coverage through Tricare, ChampVA, Veterans Health Clinics, Medicare and Medicaid.
Among these, those on VA coverage and Medicaid receive the lowest standard of care, comparable to that of the uninsured.
