Kaiser "Medical" Advertises at Olympics; British celebrate socialized medicine (tags)

As we sat watching the endless garbage expensive advertising on American TV while waiting for something called the Olympics, we saw an allegedly non-profit Health Maintenance Organization, Kaiser Permanente, advertising itself as a promoter of the Olympics, while charging us $705 per month just to be a member in the 60-64 age group, plus $25 to see a doctor and $10 for each lab test. Meanwhile, the British celebrated their National Health Service in the Opening Ceremony history lesson, which was preceded by celebrating labor in the history of modern agriculture and the industrial revolution.

A medieval present of austerity, a future of feudalism (tags)

Governments can only do so through extracting money from their citizenry and facilitating the upward flow of wealth within corporate structures.

O'BS Insurance Profiteering Health Care Approved (tags)

In a 5 to 4 decision, the US Supreme Court upheld the insurance profiteering scam the Democrats are promoting as healthcare when it has nothing to do with healthcare and everything to do with maximizing insurance industry profits. The vote was Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Elena Kagan, John Roberts and Sonia Sotomayor for, vs Samuel Alito, Anthony Kennedy, Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas. Yes, we still have to pay $700 a month to Kaiser if we are 60-64 plus $25 to see the doctor and $10 for lab tests. SOCIALIZED MEDICINE IS WHAT WE NEED TO PUT AN END TO ALL THAT GREED.

Democrats Defeated Single Payer; Vote P&F & Green (tags)

SB 810, a single payer healthcare bill, was defeated in the California Senate Jan 31, 2012 by Democratic Senators Ron Calderon, Lou Correa, Alex Padilla, Michael Rubio, Juan Vargas and Rod Wright, all bought and paid for by the insurance industry and most bought and paid for by the drug industry. The health care crisis is so terrible in this country that it is best called a death system, not a health care system. Only Peace & Freedom Party and the Green Party support socialized medicine and at the very least, single payer healthcare.

Gains for Healthcare, Despite Obama (tags)

The movement for single-payer achieved its first major victory in the United States in 2011 when the Governor of Vermont signed a single-payer bill into law.

Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer is also asking for a waiver from the federal government to set-up single payer health care in Montana.

2 Days to Vote: Yes on 19, 21, 24, 25, Peace & Freedom or Green (tags)

US ranking in life expectancy has gone from 5th in 1950 to 49th today, thanks to the expensive and for millions, unaffordable, private insurance racket proudly promoted by the Democrat-Republicans instead of the socialized medicine that exists in the rest of the industrialized world, and now at 49th, we are also behind many non-industrialized countries. That is why you should vote Peace & Freedom or Green, the two parties that support socialized medicine and oppose insurance companies.

Sarah Davis: Midwife, Alternative Health Advocate, Activist (tags)

Sarah Davis got into midwifery as a career when she was writing a college paper on midwives in the African-American community — and was startled that midwifery wasn't just an historical relic but a living cultural and health-care tradition. She practices out of a birth center in Chula Vista and finds being a midwife by profession fits in with also being an alternative health advocate and a Left political activist convinced that Western medicine in general, and its treatment of pregnancy in particular, systematically disempowers women.

The Case for Socialized Medicine in the United States, and the Struggle to Achieve It (tags)

The California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee blasted insurance giant CIGNA for failing to approve a liver transplant one week earlier for 17-year-old Nataline Sarkisyan, who tragically died just hours after CIGNA relented and agreed to the procedure following a massive national outcry. “CNA/NNOC Executive Director Rose Ann DeMoro called the final outcome ‘a horrific tragedy that demonstrates what is so fundamentally wrong with our health care system today. Insurance companies have a stranglehold on our health. Their first priority is to make profits for their shareholders – and the way they do that is by denying care." "It is simply not possible to organize major protests every time a multi-billion corporation like CIGNA denies care that has been recommended by a physician," DeMoro said. “Having insurance is not the same as receiving needed care. We need a fundamental change in our healthcare system that takes control away from the insurance giants and places it where it belongs – in the hands of the medical professionals, the patients, and their families."

The National Alliance for the Mentally Ill (NAMI), largely a drug company front group, has pushed hard for IOC in every state and territory - and NAMI is winning.
