Obama Appoints Rationing Advocate to Medicare Post

Leave a comment


UPDATE to today’s “CCHC Health Care News”:

President Obama has just announced his recess appointment of the controversial Dr. Donald Berwick, MD as Administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Members of Congress, concerned about Berwick’s support of socialized medicine and health care rationing, had delayed his confirmation since April.

Dr. Berwick, CEO and President of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, has waxed “romantic” about England’s socialized medicine system, supported rationing, and expressed support for England’s rationing-focused, euphemistically-named National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) which issues government treatment protocols for British citizens. Dr. Berwick will hold significant influence over Medicare treatment options and funding during his tenure as administrator. Some call him “Dr. Death,” but the AARP supports him. More

Last Day to Oppose Government Proposal to Own & Warehouse Newborn Citizen DNA

ACT TODAY – Last Day to Oppose Government Proposal to Own & Warehouse Newborn Citizen DNA

Please take 5 minutes to say NO to the federal government’s plan to collect, control and own the DNA of every citizen, starting at birth.

TODAY, June 25th, is the last day to comment on the federal government’s plan to warehouse and use newborn citizen DNA without consent for government research, corporate research and other purposes.

Concerns about the government’s proposal, as stated in CCHC’s public comments to the federal government (U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services (HHS)), include:

•    Fails to recommend informed written consent requirements for the storage and use of newborn DNA for research and other purposes.
•    Asserts a public claim on the DNA of newborn citizens.
•    Claims that newborn blood is necessary for “population surveillance.”
•    Does not support the 22 state genetic privacy laws and the 5 state genetic ownership laws.
•    Does not include compelling statistics from the Univ. of Michigan study that found the public appalled by unconsented government storage and research (p. 12). More

Minnesota CCHC fighting back against Obamacare

CCHC ALERT!
 
 
Citizens’ Council on Health Care
http://www.healthcarefreedom.us

PLEASE ASK PAWLENTY FOR VETO!

We’d like to again ask you to contact Governor Tim Pawlenty very quickly and ask for a veto.

Unfortunately, the Governor and the legislature agreed to implement portions of ObamaCare through HF 1, the 11th-hour bill officially called the Supplemental Budget Bill. They were just passed by the legislature a little more than an hour ago.

Please call 651-296-3391 AND send email to:  tim.pawlenty@state.mn.us

First, HF1, the 247-page Supplemental Budget bill makes the ObamaCare-funded Medicaid expansion State law (although it’s up to the next Governor to decide if he or she wants to implement it). If implemented the State must pay $1 for every $7 sent from the feds until the federal money goes away. Then the State is responsible hook, line and sinker.  Second,

there are several other parts of ObamaCare that become state law as well if the bill is signed into law.

ObamaCare Provisions Included in HF 1, the Supplemental Budget Bill:

  • placement of ObamaCare-enabled early expansion of Medicaid into Minnesota law
  • Government becomes primary seller of health insurance through establishment of a federally-approved State health insurance exchange (which we defeated with your help in 2007 and 2008)
  • Implementation of a federal high-risk insurance pool in Minnesota
  • Establishment of a State health care reform task force to implement ObamaCare in Minnesota
  • Authority to secure federal dollars to implement ObamaCare controls over medical decisions.

In addition, the bill also establishes a State government database of every person with a traumatic injury, and authorizes the Minnesota Department of Health to conduct surveillance and build databases on mothers and babies in birth centers without the knowledge or consent of parents. More
