Congress is About to Take Away Your Rights!

Call or Write your Senators and Representatives
and tell them to VOTE NO on  H.R. 1215!

The U.S. Congress is fighting hard to take away your rights and the power of individual states to protect those rights.

The influence of BIG BUSINESS over your elected representatives is being used protect careless and greedy companies and their insurers from the responsibility to pay for their own misconduct. They are working to transfer to taxpayers the expense of caring for the victims of corporate misconduct. And if the responsibility to pay for the harm they do disappears then a primary motive for manufacturers and drug companies to make safe products disappears with it.

Let’s Get Specific

H.R. 1215:
If your loved one ends up in a nursing home, and develops fatal bedsores because the nursing home chose to understaff to maximize profits, it won’t matter. This bill leaves victims of nursing home abuse with no practical remedy.

Is it okay with you if your hospitalized child suffers brain injury and dies because there were not enough health care professionals to provide proper supervision? Under this bill, Congress says your child does not have enough value to matter.

Congress is considering a devastating anti-justice wish list in H.R. 1215. The bill would federalize (so long states’ rights!) health care malpractice lawsuits, severely limiting victim’s access to justice.

Oppose H.R. 1215: Congress Should Protect Patients. Period. As many as 440,000 Americans die from preventable medical errors every year, making it the third leading cause of death in the U.S. behind heart disease and cancer.

XYZ drug company produces a drug that is hazardous to people taking it. Doctors are told that the drug “has problems”, but some doctors continue to prescribe it because they enjoy benefits from the drug company. You will not be permitted to sue those physicians under this law.

How Will It Cost Tax Payers?

Injured people must get care somewhere. If they cannot receive compensation from the party at fault, they will have to go elsewhere.

*Private health insurance costs can be expected to go up.
*Medicare will get hit for more payments.
*Medicaid will see increased claims.
*Social Security will see increases in disability claims.
*Healthcare costs will rise to cover the uninsured who seek treatment.
*Unemployment claims should be expected to rise as injured workers, uncompensated by the real wrongdoers, will make claims that would otherwise have been unnecessary.
*If you are somehow able to receive a jury verdict or settlement in any of the cases under this bill, the responsible party can require that any amounts over $50,000 be paid out over time; will it be one year, 10 years, 20 years, 30 years?? And what happens to your compensation if the wrongdoer goes out of business before the debt owed to you is paid?

So Why Would Congress Do This?

Because members of Congress owe big corporations and insurance companies for getting them elected. What other reason would cause Congress to pass laws they know will hurt Americans and add to an already heavy tax burden?

Congress is considering a devastating anti-justice wish list in H.R. 1215. The bill would federalize (so long states’ rights!) health care malpractice lawsuits, severely limiting victim’s access to justice. Aside from imposing price caps on justice, the bill would eliminate state protections, including California’s elder abuse statutes. H.R. 1215 represents a craven effort to immunize health care providers from accountability for malpractice and terrible care.

Scott Kiley joins thew show to discuss the state sanctioned kidnapping of his mother, forcing her into a guardianship which Scott describes as “state sanctioned abduction, kidnapping, hostage-taking”.  Professional fiduciary James Moore was called in by the hospital, conducting an “interview” with my mother while she was massively drugged after hip surgery.  It was Moore who “diagnosed” my mother with dementia.

Moore keeps my mother heavily drugged and confined to her bed. My mom is in grave danger now of prescription drug toxic poisoning and early premature death. I need to undo that to prevent permanent conservatorship by Moore on March 17th and literally SAVE HER LIFE!

Mercy Hospital in Sacramento seems to have a pattern, practice, custom of medical malpractice ,medical misdiagnosis of calling physically infirm sane people who are elderly,”insane”, so that in conjunction with state, county officials, money can be made by lawyers, judges and professional fiduciaries, to steal people’s lives, monies, bankrupting them, destroying families and making them homeless in so doing.

Our guest will be Deidre Gilbert of the National Medical Malpractice Advocacy Association  (NMMAA) who will talk about how she became involved in advocating for people who were harmed by medical negligence.  This issue is particularly important to those of us fighting the abuse and neglect of our elderly whose doctors seem unaware or unaffected by the deteriorating state of their patients, often times resulting in death.

Topics this evening include:

What is National Medical Malpractice Advocacy?

What is Medical Malpractice Month? What is the organization trying to accomplish?

Why are doctors able to still practice with criminal history and multiple medical malpractice suits?

(We’d like to know that too, Deidre!)

Beyond the Waiting Lists, New Senate Report Reveals a Culture of Crime, Cover-Up and Coercion within the VA

TOM COBURN, US SENATOR FROM OKLAHOMA 

(WASHINGTON, D.C.) – U.S. Senator and doctor Tom Coburn, M.D. (R-OK), today released his new oversight report “Friendly Fire: Death, Delay, and Dismay at the VA.”  The report is based on a year-long investigation of VA hospitals around the nation that chronicled the inappropriate conduct and incompetence within the VA that led to well-documented deaths and delays.  The report also exposes the inept congressional and agency oversight that allowed rampant misconduct to grow unchecked.

“This report shows the problems at the VA are worse than anyone imagined.  The scope of the VA’s incompetence – and Congress’ indifferent oversight – is breathtaking and disturbing.  This investigation found the problems at the VA are far deeper than just scheduling.  Over the past decade, more than 1,000 veterans may have died as a result of the VA’s misconduct and the VA has paid out nearly $1 billion to veterans and their families for its medical malpractice.  As is typical with any bureaucracy, the excuse for not being able to meet goals is a lack of resources.  But this is not the case at the VA where spending has increased rapidly in recent years,” Dr. Coburn said.

“The Administration and Congress have failed to ensure our nation is living up to the promises we have made to our veterans,” Dr. Coburn added.  “As a physician who has personally cared for hundreds of Oklahoma veterans, this is intolerable.  As a senator, I’m determined to address the structural challenges of the Department of Veterans Affairs so we can end this national disgrace and improve quality and access to health care for our veterans.  But make no mistake.  Whatever bill Congress passes cannot ignore the findings of this report.  While it is good that Congress feels a sense of urgency we are at this point because Congress has ignored or glossed over too many similar warnings in the past.  Our sense of urgency should come from the scope of the problem, not our proximity to an election.”

Key findings in the report include: More

Why healthcare reform is not about quality or access

Original PPJG Article :  September 14, 2009 : 1:05 p.m. CST

 

 

Marti Oakley (c) 2009

In a recent article, I reported the underlying themes and problems with the healthcare reform proposal.  Basically, that it had nothing to do with reform other than establishing a backdoor REAL ID.  Otherwise, the entire proposal is nothing more than a directive on how you can access care, what care you can access and if and how you would qualify and who is going to get crowned the “czar”. 

Also included in this legislative slight of hand is the “public option”.  Sounds good doesn’t it?  And you can keep your private insurance if you want to.  Well, of course you can!

Here’s the deal. If your employer decides he doesn’t want to offer insurance to his employee’s, he will have to pay a fine (tax) which as it turns out will be only a fraction of what it is costing him to offer you that insurance.  What do you think he will do?  How long do you think it will take your employer to realize he could make a lot more profit if he dropped your health coverage? 

Where does this leave you?  Looking for that “public option”, I would think.  Both public and private insurance will be managed by the same insurance companies whose former employees reported to the senate committee hearing that they were paid to deny legitimate claims; to avoid paying claims and were paid bonuses to do so.  But the governments remedy is to put them in charge of these two options.  More
