Haute Benzene

Haute benzene: Nationalized health care packaged and served to ignorant bourgeoius in rationed, expensive portions. 

Millions of people (victims) around the world are ignorant about how their national health care works in other countries such as Great Britain, Canada, Australia, and Europe. It’s is easily researched. You don’t need to be a couch potato about health care!

If you think the haute benzene health care managed by a bankrupt, dysfunctional, and corrupt government system, is the way to go, why aren’t you asking questions? Why are the majority of doctors in the United States against ObamaCare?

Take Great Britain for example. One of my own family living in England found a lump in her breast and was told it would be months before a biopsy could be done. She went the next day to a private surgeon and had the lump removed. Thank goodness, it was benign but she could have died if she didn’t have access to the option of a private doctor. Well, that’s just my own anecdotal “how close to death have you come” story. It doesn’t mean squat to radicals with goals of instituting socialism.

Let’s use published facts: Noted conservative radio talk show host and best selling author, Mark Levin goes into grave details on death rates with the UK’s national health care policies. Even Britain’s own Health Care Minister welcomes the rising rate of abortion in the UK. As I’ve said before, it’s not in the best interest of socialist governments to have large populations needing medical care.

There’s more. This week in a letter to the UK Telegraph, a team of ‘end of life’ care doctors warned that thousands of people are being misdiagnosed. These concerned medical experts “…claim that some patients are being wrongly judged as close to death.”

Under NHS guidance introduced across England to help doctors and medical staff deal with dying patients, they can then have fluid and drugs withdrawn and many are put on continuous sedation until they pass away.

~~~~~~

“He [Dr. Hargraves] added that some patients were being “wrongly” put on the pathway, which created a “self-fulfilling prophecy” that they would die.

He said: “I have been practising palliative medicine for more than 20 years and I am getting more concerned about this “death pathway” that is coming in.

“It is supposed to let people die with dignity but it can become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

“Patients who are allowed to become dehydrated and then become confused can be wrongly put on this pathway…”

He said that he had personally taken patients off the pathway who went on to live for “significant” amounts of time and warned that many doctors were not checking the progress of patients enough to notice improvement in their condition.

Prof Millard said that it was “worrying” that patients were being “terminally” sedated, using syringe drivers, which continually empty their contents into a patient over the course of 24 hours.

In 2007-08 16.5 per cent of deaths in Britain came about after continuous deep sedation, according to researchers at the Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry, twice as many as in Belgium and the Netherlands.

But that is exactly what palliative care doctors have been instructed to do by national care policies. It’s not what they want to do, they HAVE to. There’s not enough money from the government to provide adequate care for all of its citizens. Scotland’s General Medical Council’s May 2009 policy guidelines, Page 14, #33 speaks about Resource Constraints:

33. Decisions about what treatment options can be offered may be complicated by resource constraints – for example, funding restrictions on certain treatments in the NHS, or lack of availability of intensive care beds. In such circumstances, you must balance sometimes competing duties towards the individual patient, the wider population, funding bodies and employers. There will often be no simple solution and, ideally, decisions about access to treatments should be made on the basis of an agreed local or national policy, which takes account of the human rights implications. Decisions made on a case-by-case basis, without reference to agreed policy, risk introducing elements of unfair discrimination or failure to properly consider the patient’s human rights (see paragraph 14).

What funding restrictions? Rationed healthcare? An overtaxed people with a bankrupt government? The GMC’s last sentence in #33, “risk introducing elements of unfair discrimination or failure to properly consider the patient’s human rights,” is an euphemism for “Don’t give the NHS bad publicity or get the government sued!”

I’ve documented the poor quality of nationalized healthcare. I’ve been castigated by leftwingers for speaking against the failed healthcare systems. Jim from Canada taunted me with typical haute rhetoric:

“… Either you’re a sloppy researcher or a liar. Also do you know the methodology used by the Frasier Institute to arrive at tha estimate. I suspect you don’t but if you knew anything about research you would know it is a fundamentally flawed study. But as usual don’t let the facts get in the way of making your argument.”

Read my response here. Simply put, I had to reply back with facts that could have started with SNL’s retort “Jim, you ignorant…”

Obama nor his administration care about the health care system or the health of the American people. He cares about his dream of changing America. He’s an elitist, wannabe world leader. While he trotted his family in luxury across Europe eating haute cuisine room service, and sucking up to America’s enemies, our country was experiencing the worst economic emergencies since the Depression.

Now he is repackaging his ‘Haute Benzene” healthcare bill so he can pass “something” and not be considered an egotistical failure. Don’t be fooled. He’s worried about his agenda instead of the fate of millions of Americans.

Don’t be too hungry for what President Obama and Congress want to serve you. You could end up dying from starvation.

  1. Yep…that’s about it in a nutshell! WAKE UP!!! The alarm is going off and if we don’t get out the door and stop this madness, we can kiss it all goodbye! The communists are in charge and they have control over all 3 arms of the government!

  2. I’m on Medicaid and Medicare due to multiple major disabilities. I’m already seeing the results of limited rationing under Medicaid. It’s been active here for about four years. If people want to know what a government healthcare system would be like, why don’t they look at what’s already in place? Why don’t they check to see what our medical care is like to see if that’s what they want too?

    I think most people assume that government healthcare wouldn’t be anything like Medicaid. I would argue that the best predictions for the future will take our history into account. I’ll give two examples of what I mean.

    First, I need to tell you that I am blind and have been since birth. I need special medical equipment that talks or uses Braille so I can use it properly. I got a talking blood sugar testing meter from Medicaid that worked well for me. It helped me manage my diabetes. A month later, I got a letter saying that Medicaid had decided to work exclusively with AcuCheck products and would no longer cover the cost of test strips for the meter they had just bought me. However, they would not replace my meter since you can only get new meters every couple of years. Test strips cost $75 per bottle, if you buy them yourself. I use 2 bottles per month since I’m on insulin. My only option was to file for special approval to get a new meter. It took six months for me to work through the red tape. I had to get a friend to let me share her meter, and she had to do my tests for me since this meter didn’t talk.

    Second, because I am blind, I use a special insulin pen that clicks with each unit of insulin you draw up. I got a letter one day saying that they’d decided to no longer cover any insulin pens since they are a luxury item. The kicker here is they pay more per month to buy the insulin vials and syringes than they’d pay for the pens. Because I can’t see to use syringes, I have to apply each year to get special permission to get my pens that click. This decision is made by a person who isn’t a doctor or nurse. I did a cost analysis using prices from my local drugstore. By using these pens versus the insulin vials, I get an extra 50 units of insulin in a month’s supply. There is no cost for syringes to measure the insulin. You have to use needles whether you use pens or syringes, so that’s the same. I determined by using my pens, I save $33 for Medicaid each month! That’s$396 per year. Yet my click pens are luxury items while vials and syringes are not. 😦 I also know that they could cancel my approval for the pens at any time.

    People who have never been forced by circumstances to rely on the government for medical help have no idea what they’re asking for. By the time they realize it, it’ll be too late. I wish I could make people see and understand what it’s like. You become nobody, just a form that a person with no medical training checks yes or no on. In some cases, your life depends on that yes or no
