Obama’s Dr. Death Tells Indiana to Fund Planned

The Obama administration today denied
Indiana’s use of its new state law that would deny millions in taxpayer dollars
to the Indiana affiliate of the nation’s largest abortion business

Mitch Daniels signed the law
, which would cut off anywhere from $2 million
to $3 million the Planned Parenthood abortion business receives in federal funds
via the Indiana government through Medicaid.

Daniels said that “any organization affected by this provision can resume
receiving taxpayer dollars immediately by ceasing or separating its operations
that perform abortions.”

However, the Obama administration has told the state it can’t implement the
new law, with Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Administrator Donald Berwick denying a
request to deny funds saying the federal Medicaid law stipulates that states
can’t exclude providers based on the services they provide.
. “We assume this decision is not unexpected.”

Berwick also said the law makes it so states can’t prohibit access to family
planning, which is provided under federal law. His department released a memo
advising states that they can’t exclude abortion providers from receiving
taxpayer funds via Medicaid.

“Medicaid programs may not exclude qualified health care providers — whether
an individual provider, a physician group, an outpatient clinic or a hospital —
from providing services under the program because they separately provide
abortion services,” Center for Medicaid Director Cindy Mann wrote in the


The Nightmare ObamaCare Wants to Unleash Here

The Nightmare ObamaCare Wants to Unleash

Another dreamer quietly joined the Obama administration last
summer without
Congressional approval
. Despite resolute promises that Obamacare would not
include rationing or result in a single-payer system, please give a hearty and
belated welcome to Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services director, Dr.
Donald Berwick.
Berwick’s unobtrusive entrance could not muffle his history of being a very
loud proponent of the troubled British National Healthcare System (NHS). During
the NHS’s 60th anniversary meeting in 2008, Berwick scorned America’s ho-hum,
less superior, lower quality, fragmented, capitalistic, supply-driven medical
system – and praised NHS’s socialized system saying,
“Excellent health care is by definition [wealth] redistribution,” and told NHS
leaders that “Britain chose well.”
An increasing number of NHS patients may not concur with Dr. Berwick’s
assessment. According to the UK Guardian, not long after Berwick’s
appointment last year, written complaints ranging from “neglect and
misdiagnosis” to a “distinct lack of care and compassion” from caregivers rose
13.4 percent.
Patient complaints along with various audits expose insufficiencies within
the NHS. On January 17, 2011, the UK Daily Mail told of an
investigation into 15 UK West Midlands hospitals that used “substandard”
maternity care including delivery delays, inadequate resuscitation attempts, and
failure to properly monitor patients that may have resulted in the unexplained
deaths of 21 babies.
A striking 2009 audit found many NHS health care managers prioritized cost
cutting over patient care and cited that “appalling standards of care” may have
attributed to the deaths of up to 1200 people at one hospital in
Mid-Staffordshire where poorly trained and overworked nurses turned off
equipment they didn’t know how to work and inexperienced doctors were left alone
with post-surgery patients while receptionists were tasked with triage
In order to meet an NHS-imposed four-hour waiting room limit, doctors left
blood-covered, seriously ill patients without pain medication to


“Death Panels” Regulation Begins Obama’s Rule by Fiat

“Death Panels” Regulation Begins Obama’s Rule by Fiat

 December 27th, 2010 Ben Johnson, FloydReports.com

In a foretaste of outrages to come, the Obama administration managed to sneak out a federal regulation paying doctors to provide “end of life counseling” to those covered by ObamaCare. The Medicare rule, which Congress never voted on, may encourage thousands to forego lifesaving treatment. This move is a voluntary precursor to the inevitable rationing engendered by socialized medicine. Many conservative media outlets have objected to the pro-death aspects of this decision. However, they have ignored a vital aspect of this story: the way he implemented the policy. This federal regulation inaugurates Obama’s two-year strategy to rule by executive order.
