Last night I was talking with my son-in-law’s brother who is a Neurosurgeon at Emory Hospital in Atlanta , which, if you are not familiar with it, ranks up there with the finest hospitals in the country.
A group of non-doctors, from ‘our’ country’s Department of Health arrived last week at Emory for a two-day session, who are on their rounds around the country to make sure every hospital fully understands the new rules Obama Care (which start in December (after the elections) concerning treating all patients over 70 years of age.
You heard of the death squads early on after Obamacare was passed and many people claimed it was not true and that people were misquoting what was in the bill. Well if you believed this you are wrong. DEAD WRONG!
This group informed the staff at Emory and all the doctors present that they will very soon not be allowed to operate on anyone over 70 (no matter how urgent or life threatening the situation is), without first having it approved by a board of eight doctors. Failure to comply will result in a huge financial burden to the hospital and more than likely the doctor will lose his/her ability to practice medicine anywhere in the country.
This board is to be established at every hospital in the country and the board members will only work eight hours a day. We will discuss this a little later on as the DOH group almost got lynched at this point by the doctors who were present.
This board of doctors will not be made up of active doctors. All the doctors must be retired – and may even be retired for up to 30 or 40 years. Further, Obamacare sees no need or requirement for them to be skilled in surgery. Another very vocal argument broke out here as these doctors most likely may not even be aware what advancements have taken place in surgery over the last 5-10 years, nor what is going today in the medical field. Also, anyone who has ever been a doctor can serve on these boards. For example, Individuals with skills only in pediatrics, podiatry, dermatology, etc., may be making decisions as to whether a brain operation is required or not.
The point that got the Emery doctors so upset originally was that the “Death Board” will only be working 8 hours per day. And once their 8 hour shift is up, they may have to wait 16 hours to get in touch with them and another hour or two or three to get a decision and permission to operate, yet doctors have cases in which it is crucial to operate within 30 minutes.
The staff at Emory Hospital will be coordinating with other hospitals and together they will make a concerted effort to bring about significant changes to this portion of Obamacare .
When the question was raised from the floor by a young doctor as to whether doctors had to get permission to operate on congressmen and/or future members of the executive branch who would later be over 70, the answer was, “Of course not!” When the same young doctor asked, “Why not.” They refused to answer.
WHISNews21 comment: This sounds like something out of a Stephen King horror movie, can this really be happening, are you almost 70 or are you 70 already. If this is all true which it probably is, as they say where there’s smoke there’s fire, what are you going to do? I for one would not take any chances, I would vote for the candidate who has not got this on his agenda, even if you dont know what the other candidate has got hidden for you once he is elected. But I would take my chances on the one who still respects people over 70, and still believes in “God Save America”. But then my comments are worthless, there is nothing I can do to change anything we also have our fair share of problems right here in South Africa to deal with. Our old people dont have to be sick to die, they just get murdered on their farms almost every day, by a secret force who hate them for their skin color. We dont have the luxury of voting against this as you do, so dont waste your vote. My heart bleeds for my friends in America, I would not want you to go through what we have, and I fear that you are on the same path.It all starts with you not listening to what is being said and writing it all off as nonsense, and when it happens to you, the first thing you will say is this is not what we voted for, but the truth will be, that you did.
