RIP-OFF EXPERTS AND TRAITORS: OBAMA AND PELOSI
Updated: Mar 13
In March of 2010, at the Legislative Conference for the National Association of Counties, Nancy Pelosi, who was Speaker of the House at the time, made yet another partisan pitch for the Affordable Health Care Act. The bill comprised well over 2,000 pages. Few debates had ever captured as much of the nation’s attention for so long. On the line was how to spend up to a trillion per year of the tax-payers’ money. Perhaps it was because she was frustrated, or perhaps it was because she couldn’t make a convincing enough argument, or perhaps it was because she received $316,300 that year from health professionals, and could count on a total of $1,440,867 from 2008 to 2018 to add to her net worth of over $100,000,000. She said these infamous words that quickly went viral:
“But we have to pass the [health care] bill so that you can find out what’s in it....”
Speaker Pelosi had confirmed how our government works behind the scenes at its highest levels in 16 words of a huge mistake. Special interest groups make a lengthy, over-complicated bill that is intentionally drafted that way, so that it’s nearly impossible to read, much less interpret. They donate money to the Speaker and others, and Congress works to get it rubber-stamped so it becomes law.
Democrat Congress members and a few wavering Republicans didn’t need to bother to read or understand the bill, dare less question it, they just needed to vote for it. The results were easily predicted, the special interest groups will get richer at the public’s expense, and the bill won’t do what they told the public it will do. Sure enough, once a form of the bill passed, taxpayers did not get to keep their original doctors as President Obama, himself, had promised, premiums doubled for many, choices were reduced for insurance plans, and deductibles were raised. The top three health care insurers, tapping into the $500,000,000 in government subsidies, soon had record profits to boast about to Wall Street. People began going into debt to pay for healthcare insurance yet another boon for the big banks.
Pelosi and Congress had shown us our how government really works as a highly corrupted and manipulative machine whose arrogance and selfishness far outweighed their will to serve the people.
>STOP MEDICARE FRAUD? LOL, NO THANKS!
The Washington Examiner ran an article on February 2, 2011 about how the CEO of IBM “offered the Obama administration a free software program that would have cut Medicare and Medicaid fraud by almost a trillion dollars, but he was turned down – twice.”
To prove that it works, IBM offered to do it for free.
“They turned us down," chairman and CEO Samuel Palmisano said during a Sept. 14, 2010 taping of the Wall Street Journal’s Viewpoints program.
Although FOX News confirmed that a second meeting resulted in a second rejection, the proffered " fix" would have eliminated 90 percent of the nation’s health care deficit – and cost taxpayers nothing if it didn’t perform as guaranteed.
In 2011, according to the Manhattan Institute’s Steven Malanga, abuses of Medicaid (alone) eat up at least 10 percent of the program’s total cost nationwide -- a waste of $30 billion a year.
Unscrupulous doctors billing for over 24 hours per day of procedures, phony companies invoicing for phantom services, pharmacists filling prescriptions for dead patients, home health-care companies demanding payment for treating clients actually in the hospital -- on and on the rip-offs go."
Why would the Obama administration refuse? They alluded to data privacy issues but IBM had a high security clearance already. When Obamacare started the Obama administration farmed out the sign up website that included personal medical information to a foreign country, Canada. There was a breach in the system there and the personal data was compromised for millions of Americans. The Canadian company would eventually fail, and the “fix” cost the taxpayers even more money.
IBM could have applied a metadata system to mask identity for patients.
The Obama administration allegedly refused from pressure from powerful and generous health care lobbies. Big Health profits from big Medicare fraud.
