THE ONE WORD TO DESCRIBE OBAMACARE

A must read.
Written By Dr. Dave Janda

As a physician who has authored books on preventative health care, I was given the opportunity to be the keynote speaker at a Congressional Dinner at The Capitol Building in Washington last Friday (7/17).

The presentation was entitled Health Care Reform, The Power & Profit of Prevention, and I was gratified that it was well received.

In preparation for the presentation, I read the latest version of "reform" as authored by The Obama Administration and supported by Speaker Pelosi and Senator Reid. Here is the link to the 1,018 page document:
http://edlabor.house.gov/documents/111/pdf/publications/AAHCA-BillText-071409.pdf

Let me summarize just a few salient points of the above plan. First: The underlying method of cutting costs throughout the plan is based on rationing and denying care. There is no focus on preventing health care need whatever. The plan's method is the most inhumane and unethical approach to cutting costs I can imagine as a physician.

  • Looks like he didn't even read the Bill...

    "There is no focus on preventing health care need whatever."
    Maybe you should read page 28, under MINIMUM SERVICES TO BE COVERED:
    (8) Preventive services, including those services recommended with a grade of A or B by the Task Force on Clinical Preventive Services and those vaccines recommended for use by the Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
    (9) Maternity care.
    (10) Well baby and well child care and oral health, vision, and hearing services, equipment, and supplies at least for children under 21 years of age.

    I could continue but the mis-quotes are too numerous. In summary, Janda seems to have a promiscuous relationship with quotation marks that makes them applicable to thoughts that occurred in his head after reading a document rather than the document itself. It's rather telling that he doesn't give page numbers. Given the absurd content of many of his "quotes", I've come away more worried about Janda's sanity than the sanity of the bill he so despises.

  • I have been told that Doctor H Janda did not write this artical. I tried to contact the doctor to find out if this is true without any success. I don't want to send something to friends with a false writer's name. This article has been plastered all over google without any complaints from the doctor, however, info under the name Doctor H. Janda from Arbor, MI in google, or his website noinjury.com, does not indicte that he wrote this article. The article does not include the middle initial, but says he is a surgen from MI. It looks like they could not mean anyone else. Is this a big scam by the FREE PRESS? see google under the title for more info

  • There are many ambiguities within this bill some of which can be critically highlighted in this message. Here is another site (sort of like Snopes) which relates to the investigation into this massive bill.
