Pelosi’s ‘Assault on Women’ Comments Opportunistic
Thursday, 03 May 2012 09:37 AM

By Henry J. Reske

Nancy Pelosi’s recent comments that the GOP was going to “make another assault” on women’s health “smacks of political opportunism,” The Washington Post concluded in a fact check of the statement.

Pelosi, D-Calif., made the comment during a debate on how to fund subsidized college loans. The House GOP voted to pay for it by cutting the Prevention and Public Health Fund in Obamacare. Pelosi assailed the move.

“In order to pay for it, [House Republicans] are going to make an assault on women’s health, make another assault on women’s health, continue [their] assault on women’s health, and pay for this with prevention initiatives that are in effect right now for childhood immunization; for screening for breast cancer, for cervical cancer; and for initiatives to reduce birth defects — a large part of what the Centers for Disease Control does in terms of prevention.”

However, looking at the fund, the Post noted in the “current fiscal year, there is very little money specifically allocated to women’s health programs.”

“Pelosi mentioned childhood immunization, and that’s there, but that’s more for children than women,” the Post reported. “But cervical cancer, breast cancer, birth defects — nope, unless you label programs on obesity and tobacco as preventing birth defects.”

The president’s budget for fiscal 2013 does propose moving $260 billion in funding for cervical and breast cancer prevention into the fund. “However, we think an ordinary person would think Pelosi’s remarks made it seem as if the funding proposed for 2013 is actually happening right now,” the Post said.

The Post concluded that “this is a good example of politicians using obscure details of the budgetary process to score political points.”

“Pelosi could have raised concerns about perceived cuts in preventive health. She could have also noted that women benefit greatly from such efforts. But she — and fellow Democrats — went too far to label this ‘an assault on women’s health.’ Maybe evidence of that will emerge through the regular appropriations process — at which point we could revisit this ruling — but for the moment this smacks of political opportunism,” the Post wrote in awarding the statement two Pinocchios.

Beware, And Pray!

I do not know if this is true, but if it is, it is worth thinking about.  Oh, and of course if it is true, it will not apply to members of Congress, the Senate and the President!

 

 

 

Death Sentence

 

I had one of the most troubling, most disturbing conversations ever with Julie’s sister-in-law, Dr. Suzanne Allen, head of emergency services at the Johnson City Medical Center in Tennessee. We were discussing the “future” and I asked her had she seen any effects of Obama Care in her work?

 “Oh, yes. We are seeing cutbacks throughout the services we provide. For example, we are now having to deal with patients who would normally receive dialysis can no longer be accepted. In the past, there was always automatic approval under Medicare for anyone who needed dialysis — not anymore.” So, what will be their outcome? “They will die soon without dialysis,” she stated.

 What about other services?

She indicated as of 2013 (after the election), no one over 75 will be given major medical procedures unless approved by locally administered Ethics Panels. These Panels will determine whether a patient receives medical treatment or not. While details on specific operating procedures and schedules, Dr. Allen points out that most life-threatening emergencies do not occur during normal hospital business hours, and if there are emergencies that depend to be resolve within minutes or just few hours, the likely hood of getting these Panels approval in time to save a life are going to be very challenging and difficult, if not impossible she said.

 This applies to major operations such as receiving stents, bypass surgery, kidney operations, or treating for an aneurysm that would be normally covered under Medicare today. In other words, if you needed a life-saving operation, Medicare will not provide coverage anymore after 2013 if you are 75 or over. When in 2013? “We haven’t been given a specific date — could be in January or July….but it’s after the election.”

 This is shocking to any of us who will be 75 this year. Her advice — get healthy and stay healthy. We do not know the specifics of the actual implementation of the full Obama Care policies and procedures — “they haven’t filtered down to the local level yet. But we are already seeing severe cuts in what we provide to the elderly — we refused dialysis to an individual who was 78 just the other day….we refused to give stents to a gentleman who was in his late 80s.” Every day, she said, we are seeing these cutbacks aimed at reducing care across the board for anyone who is over 75.

 We can only hope that Obama Care will be overturned by the Supreme Court — otherwise, this is a death sentence to those who are over 75….perhaps you should pass this on to your friends who are thinking of voting for Obama this year.

Regardless if you have private health care coverage now (I have Aetna Medicare Part B) — it will no longer apply after 2013 if the Ethics Panels disapprove of a procedure that may save your life.

Scary, scary, scary. Think about this? You? Your parents? Your loved ones? Didn’t know about it? Of course, not. As Nancy Pelosi said….”well, if you want to know what’s in the bill, you’ll have to read it….” After it was passed.

 This is a graphic reminder of the need to stay healthy. Get your plot now at Forest Lawn….while they last. Is this a death sentence to those of us who will reach 75? Yes!

My Thoughts….

WILL reach 75?!?!  What about those of us that ARE 75?!?!
