CANCER DEFINITION TREATMENT DENIAL



------
 






Obama Inc. to Deny Cancer Treatments by Redefining What "Cancer" Is

September 30, 2013 



 
On July 29, 2013, a working group for the National Cancer Institute (the main government agency for cancer research)published a paper proposing that the term "cancer" be reserved for lesions with a reasonable likelihood of killing the patient if left untreated. Slower growing tumors would be called a different name such as "indolent lesions of epithelial origin" (IDLE).
Their justification was that modern medical technology now allows doctors to detect small, slow-growing tumors that likely wouldn't be fatal. Yet once patients are told they have a cancer, many become frightened and seek unnecessary further tests, chemotherapy, radiation, and/or surgery.
By redefining the term "cancer," the National Cancer Institute hopes to reduce patient anxiety and reduce the risks and expenses associated with supposedly unnecessary medical procedures. In technical terms, the government hopes to reduce "overdiagnosis" and "overtreatment" of cancer.
And of course compel doctors to stop recommending expensive "overtreatments" for things that are no longer cancers.
Similarly, the American Medical Association recently voted to declare obesity a "disease." But as Cato Institute health care analyst Michael Tanner noted, "the AMA's move is actually a way for its members to receive more federal dollars, by getting obesity treatments covered under government health plans."
In our Obamacare world, obesity is a serious disease, but cancer isn't.
With respect to the definition of "cancer," downgrading some conditions as no longer being "cancer" can and will used to justify reducing "unnecessary" screening tests (e.g., mammograms for women between ages 40-49).
That's the whole point. The more the government takes over medicine, the more it is driven to reduce costs in order to fund a vast welfare state.
Dr. Milton Wolf, a practicing radiologist who cares for patients with DCIS warns against this Orwellian possibility:
"Health care rationing takes many insidious forms but perhaps the most immoral is for the government to wage a public relations campaign designed specifically to dissuade patients and doctors from seeking available cures for cancer. They scheme to rename cancer, not to cure it, but to deny it exists. These government rationers have calculated that rather than actually treat patients with cancer, it's cheaper to simply keep them calm… right up to the very end."

] 35 States So Far.......It's Growing!



------

 

 

 

 

Governors of 35 states have filed suit against the Federal Government for imposing unlawful burdens upon them. It only takes 38 (of the 50) States to convene a Constitutional Convention.

This will take less than thirty seconds to read. If you agree, please pass it on.

This is an idea that we should address.

For too long we have been too complacent about the workings of Congress. The latest is to exempt themselves from the Healthcare Reform that passed ... in all of its forms. Somehow, that doesn't seem logical. We do not have an elite that is above the law. I truly don't care if they are Democrat, Republican, Independent or whatever . The self-serving must stop.

If each person that receives this will forward it on to 15 people, in three days, most people in The United States of America will have the message. This is one proposal that really should be passed around.

 

Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution:

 "Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States ."

Re: Letting Obama Force a Constitutional Crisis Is the Best Republican Choice

Well stated!

Letting Obama Force a Constitutional Crisis Is the Best Republican Choice

Posted By David P. Goldman On October 1, 2013

It's worth considering the risks and rewards in the budget standoff, which is first and foremost a battle for control of the Republican Party and the shape of the 2014 and 2016 primaries. The Republican Party of John McCain and Mitt Romney lost two presidential elections, the second to a weak candidate in a weak economy. Left to its own devices, it will lose the next presidential election and all the following ones. By picking a fight on Obama's least popular position, namely health care, the conservative wing of the party galvanized the party base and forced the House leadership into a fight. In a June 27 poll, the Gallup organization found that just 22% of Americans expected Obamacare to improve their family's health situation, while 47% expected it to make it worse. As my old partner Jude Wanniski used to say, the electorate is like a diamond, waiting to be cut at exactly the right spot. Ted Cruz pointed the chisel correctly.

Opposing a bad program, to be sure, is not the same as building a national majority around a good program. The Republican Party is a long way from that. Just as the conservative wing of the party needed its chance after the Nixon and Ford debacles of the 1970s, the conservative wing of the party needs to take its shot after the abysmal performance of the McCain wing — or there will be no party at all.

It well may be true that shutting down the government hurts the Republicans in the short run. That is immaterial; there is no way to get from here to there except by making a stand against Obamacare. There is no downside, for the Republican Party as presently configured already is a guaranteed loser. A reinvigorated conservative leadership has a chance of leading the party to victory.

The optimal Republican strategy now is to force a crisis over the debt ceiling. Democrats anticipate this outcome, as the Brookings Institution's Henry Aaron wrote in a widely-cited Sept. 29 op-ed:

If President Obama spends what the law orders him to spend and collects the taxes Congress has authorized him to collect, then he must borrow more than Congress has authorized him to borrow. If the debt ceiling is not raised, he will have to violate one of these constitutional imperatives. Which should he choose?

In 2011, when Congress last flirted with not raising the debt ceiling, lawyers disagreed. Some argued that the president must honor the debt ceiling, thereby violating budget laws. Others held that he must honor budget legislation. No one argued that he should unilaterally raise taxes. Professors Neil H. Buchanan and Michael C. Dorf, who parsed the arguments in the Columbia Law Review in 2012, concluded that all options were bad, but that disregarding the debt ceiling was least bad from a legal standpoint.

I agree. Lawyers tend to play down policy considerations as a basis for interpreting law. In this case, the consequences are so overwhelmingly on one side that they cannot be ignored by the president and should not be ignored by the courts. If the debt ceiling is not increased, the president should disregard it, and honor spending and tax legislation.

That is political overreaching of the worst kind. If Obama refuses to postpone the implementation of his health care plan in return for an extension of the debt ceiling, Republicans should stand their ground, and force the president to tear up the Constitution and assume dictatorial powers. Americans don't like that, and they will dislike it doubly if Obama does so to protect a hated piece of legislation. It would clarify the choices before the electorate and give conservative Republicans something to run against. That isn't enough: they have to present a credible program to restore economic growth and opportunity. But that will be then: this is now.

Fwd: Obamacare's Fraud-Stained Navigators








Everything Democratic is "fraud-stained".

 

B

Malkin: Obamacare's Fraud-Stained Navigators

By Michelle Malkin October 2, 2013

Welcome to ObamaWreck! Americans nationwide spent Tuesday struggling with the much-hyped "Affordable Care Act" health insurance exchanges. Server meltdowns, error messages and security glitches plagued the federal and state government websites as open enrollment began. But when taxpayers discover exactly who will be navigating them through the bureaucratic maze, they may be glad they didn't get through.

U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius controls a $54 million slush fund to hire thousands of "navigators," "in-person assisters" and counselors, who are now propagandizing and recruiting Obamacare recipients into the government-run exchanges. As I warned in May, the Nanny State navigator corps is a serious threat to Americans' privacy. Background checks and training requirements are minimal to nonexistent. A history of fraud is no barrier to entry.

Case in point: the seedy nonprofit Seedco. This community-organizing group snagged lucrative multimillion-dollar navigator contracts in Georgia, Maryland, Tennessee and New York. The New York Post reports this week that the outfit "is partnering with dozens of agencies, such as the Gay Men's Health Crisis, Food Bank for New York City and the Chinese American Planning Council, in each of (the Big Apple's) five boroughs." They'll have access to potential enrollees' income levels, birthdates, addresses, eligibility for government assistance, Social Security numbers and intensely personal medical information.

Given the enormous responsibility to handle sensitive data in a careful, neutral manner, combined with the overwhelming pressure to boost Obamacare enrollments, you'd think the feds would only choose navigators with the most impeccable records. Yet, less than a year ago, Seedco agreed to settle a civil fraud lawsuit "for faking at least 1,400 of 6,500 job placements under a $22.2 million federally funded contract with the city."

Seedco's corrupt behavior went far beyond defrauding taxpayers through abuse of New York City programs, federal Labor Department funding and federal stimulus dollars. Seedco (which stands for "Structured Employment Economic Development Corporation") tried to destroy and defame whistleblowing official Bill Harper, who discovered and reported the rampant falsification of data.

First, Seedco denied the charges; next, they trashed Harper's reputation in the pages of The New York Times. Only after the U.S. Attorney's office in Manhattan brought suit did the organization acknowledge systemic, repeated wrongdoing. Seedco forked over a $1.7 million settlement in December 2012. Mere months later, they were racking up federal Obamacare navigator work.

The feds and Seedco assure us that new management is in place. They rearranged some deck chairs, created a new "compliance program" and hired an independent reviewer. But an ethos of by-any-means-necessary book-cooking and a culture of intimidating whistleblowers don't disappear overnight. Seedco shredded documents for three years to phony up their job placement statistics; city government overseers knew about it. The Nonprofit Quarterly noted that Seedco's fraud was "kind of breathtaking" in its "creativity and illegal audacity," including:

--"Taking credit for a job candidate's prior employment as job placements;

--Reporting job placements when the job candidates remained unemployed;

--Falsifying dates of job placements;

--Using other Seedco programs to collect information on clients in order to falsely report job placements; and

--Reporting job placements for people who were not Seedco clients and had not been placed in their jobs by Seedco."

The feds detailed how Seedco managers would instruct clerical workers to troll Monster.com and Careerbuilder.com for resumes and then "report the employment of individuals sourced from those downloaded resumes as job placements." Other employees exploited their relationships with businesses to "gather information from the businesses' current employees. Seedco then used that information to falsely report that employment as a job placement obtained for the candidate by Seedco, although the individuals had no prior relationship with Seedco and had not been recruited into the job by Seedco."

This entire government-nonprofit alliance rests on dragooning as many people as possible into government programs, including food stamps, CHIP (the federal Children's Health Insurance Program) and now Obamacare. One of Seedco's officials actually said the fraud case "made us a stronger organization." Yes, they actually sold their deliberate number-fudging as an asset instead of a liability. And four states swallowed the pitch whole. The spirit of fraud-stained ACORN and its Nanny State progeny lives.

So, buyers, beware: Obamacare security "glitches" are not just a bug. They're a feature.

Fwd: Iranian Horror Movie Turns Reality

Iranian Horror Movie Turns Reality

by LT. COLONEL JAMES G. ZUMWALT, USMC (RET)October 2, 2013

As a youngster, I found it amusing to watch horror movies depicting characters naively falling victim, repeatedly, to monsters harboring hostile intent.

As an adult, I find it far from amusing to see a U.S. president naively falling victim to such monstrous hostile intent.

Last week, U.S. President Barack Obama initiated a call to Iran's new president -- Hassan Rouhani -- marking the first contact between presidents of the two countries since Tehran's mullahs took power in 1979.

Following the conversation, Obama suggested a nuclear agreement could be reached, building upon the foundation of the fatwa Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei issued in January against the development of nuclear weapons.

The reference is another indicator of Obama's naivete as such declaration lacks any legal impact. Had Khamenei seriously sought to give such a declaration legal bite, he should have issued it as a presidential edict.

Also indicative of Obama's naivete is his description of Rouhani as "moderate" -- a label that totally disregards the Iranian president's checkered past. After heading a team that negotiated with the European Union over a decade ago on Iran's nuclear program, Rouhani wrote a book, bragging about how he duped the West. Rouhani's agenda -- to obtain nuclear weapons -- hasn't changed since then.

Obama is the sixth U.S. president to serve in office since Iran's mullahs took power and broke off diplomatic relations with the United States. What follows should be obvious to Obama at this point:

1. Attempting to secretly undertake a program to develop a nuclear capability, Iran claimed its purpose peaceful once discovered -- but it refused to implement transparency.

In the 11 years since the program was discovered, Iran has sought to hide additional facilities deep underground and to destroy evidence above ground that would reveal its true intent.

While numerous U.N. resolutions and sanctions were implemented, significantly damaging Iran's economy, Tehran refuses to allow the international inspections necessary to have those sanctions lifted.

2. A practice perfected by Iran's first Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, was "taqiyya." This was a tactic first used by the Muslim minority sect -- Shiites -- after Prophet Muhammad's death to survive persecution either by majority sect Sunnis or by non-Muslims. It was a religious empowerment permitting Shiites to lie about their beliefs in order to survive.

Khomeini took taqiyya to a new level -- allowing Muslims to lie in furtherance of Islam's goals. Thus, while still in exile in 1979, he assured Western journalists he wouldn't seek power in Iran and would support democracy.

In exile, Khomeini sounded like Mahatma Gandhi; but once back in Tehran, his true colors as a Genghis Khan emerged, embarking upon a terror campaign killing tens of thousands of Iranians.

For Khomeini, taqiyya served its purpose as U.S. President Jimmy Carter pressed the Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi to leave Iraq, triggering the Ayatollah's return and brutal reign.

3. Knowing Carter lacked the courage to challenge them, the mullahs weren't so sure about President Ronald Reagan. Reagan's election prompted the release of the U.S. Embassy hostages. But the mullahs sought again to challenge U.S. resolve in 1983 by authorizing the bombing of the U.S. Marine barracks in Lebanon. When no U.S. response followed, Tehran increased the pace of its efforts to export the Islamic Revolution outside its borders.

4. The mullahs have mastered the tactic of "good cop, bad cop." With the supreme leader as the ultimate authority in Iran, he is able to manipulate the country's presidential candidates to get the "right face" in office at the right time.

When Khomeini died in 1989, his replacement put forward Mohammad Khatami, perceived by the West as a moderate, as the right presidential face to promote the Islamist agenda. Under the guise of seeking rapprochement, Khatami provided the cover by which the agenda was furthered.

5. Iranian leaders have distributed a film to religious leaders detailing how Tehran will be the catalyst in triggering global chaos and the return of a messianic figure from his state of occultation to subject the world to Shariah. A violent death awaits all those failing to comply.

6. As a backup plan just in case Tehran had to curb its nuclear development, it funded the secret construction of a nuclear facility in Syria. U.S. inaction to neutralize the facility left Israel alone to do so. Unsurprisingly, no protest was launched by Syria so as to avoid an international investigation.

The above should leave little doubt where Tehran is heading and that violence awaits the world once it gets there.

Iran believes it is in the homestretch of its nuclear arms race. For more than a decade, it has mastered the use of delaying tactics to keep the program moving forward. Rouhani has now been entrusted by the supreme leader to complete the program, crossing the finish line before the West realizes it has again been duped.

The window of opportunity to stop Iran's nuclear program is quickly closing. One Israeli source suggests Tehran is only two months away from having sufficient uranium enrichment to produce its first nuclear bomb.

Iran seeks to turn its horror movie above into reality.

In Obama, it has found the right naïve character to play a role as he continues to turn a blind eye to Tehran's hostile intent.

Ironically, a U.S. president awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for doing nothing is creating a much more dangerous world by continuing to do more of the same.

Scooter Store scammed $108m from U.S. taxpayers

by Dr. Eowyn

Scooter Store You've seen those ubiquitous ads on TV of a seemingly good-hearted store that promised elderly and disabled Americans a motorized scooter FOR FREE! Because, the ad assures its viewers, Medicare will pay for it!!!!

I've seen those ads too, and had wondered how the Scooter Store could be so 100% confident that *ANYONE* who wanted a scooter was assured one -- FOR FREE!

To quote the eminently sensible Judge Judy: "If it doesn't make sense, it's not true."

When was the last time you've seen a Scooter Store commercial? At least many months, if not a year or two.

Here's why . . . .

Founded in 1991 by Doug and Susanna Harrison, the privately-owned Scooter Store is headquartered in New Braunfels, Texas, and serve 48 states. It is the largest supplier of mobility vehicles in the United States.

In February 2013 the company Store filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and ceased all cash sales to the public, after a raid by more than 150 FBI agents and local cops for Medicare-Medicaid fraud of as much as $108 million.

During its heyday, the Scooter Store had employed more than 2,400 people and was New Braunfels' largest private employer. On September 13, 2013, the company entered liquidation and terminated its remaining 370 employees. Effective October 26, the Scooter Store lost its federal contract with Medicare eliminating the ability to sell assets in a Chapter 11 bankruptcy. So the company's board of directors made the decision to essentially liquidate the business.

Medicare has accounted for about three-quarters of the Scooter Store's business, a company representative told a U.S. Senate committee last year. But an independent auditor found The Scooter Store had received between $46.8 million and $87.7 million in Medicare overpayments.

The company is accused by the Justice Department of harassing doctors with constant phone calls and surgery visits in order to wear them down to prescribe scooters to patients who do not need them.

A damning exposé by CBS This Morning in January alleged that the company over-billed Medicare by $108 million between 2009-2012.

Former Scooter Store employee Brian Setzer told CBS that company's main goal was to use pressure to get doctors to prescribe their vehicles. Setzer described the company's policy was to "Bulldoze and get them to get the paperwork done." He said his bosses would order him to annoy doctors into prescribing the scooters: "I'd get a call, 'Well, can you go in to get him to do this? Could you get him to do this.' I couldn't feel right in my heart to do that."

Here's the extent of Scooter Store's scam:

  • The company had a specialized department devoted to getting the scooters for patients who had already been ruled ineligible by Medicare.
  • About 80% of all claims for scooters were found to be medically unnecessary.
  • 61% of claims that were approved should not have been, totaling $95 million.
  • What Medicare paid the Scooter Store was FOUR TIMES the average amount spent by suppliers for standard power wheelchairs.
  • The federal government taxpayers spent $723 million for the scooters in Medicare reimbursements for 2009 alone.
