National Health Care, from Major British News Papers

Posted in FAIL, Health Control with tags , , , on March 31, 2010 by spikestl

Most Americans are never going to know what health care is like in other countries.
In my previous post Natonal Health Care, My Personal Story. I talked about how health care happened to me and my family. Since that post, I’ve had a couple of people tell me “well when I went to London I cut my finger or smashed my hand and I got Excellent care'”.

What they don’t understand is that it’s not about the care.

Its about the COST and who’s controling the MONEY.

At 39% of GDP the United Kindom is one of the highest taxed countries in the world, in comparison USA is 28% of GDP, the problem is that the UK is  financially in worse shape than the USA.

National Health care, My Personal Story

Posted in Health Control, My Thoughts with tags , , on March 22, 2010 by spikestl

Well… with 70% of America opposed to Obama Care ( Health Control ) They passed it anyway.
I was hoping I wouldn’t Have to post this, I’ve been writing it for a while….

Americans have no idea what national health care is like. Health care is health care right? Every doctor and nurse is going to do the best job they can. They don’t want people to suffer or die. Right?

Well if the Doctors and Nurses are the same, why is there a difference in the care that you receive. Is there a difference?

A survey by the United Nations International Health Organization.
Percentage of men and women who survived a cancer five years after diagnosis:
U.S. 65%
England 46%
Canada 42%

Percentage of patients diagnosed with diabetes who received treatment within six months:
U.S. 93%
England 15%
Canada 43%

Americans visit other country’s on vacation and hopefully never see an emergency room. The only way to know what health care is like in another country is to live there for awhile….SO.
A little Info about me.

I joined the United States Air Force in 1985. After Training I was stationed in England. I liked england a lot, I still do. I met a local girl, fell in love,and got married.
The Air Force is different from the Army, Marines,and Navy. In the Air Force, if you want to stay someplace for a while it was relatively easy. I was stationed at R.A.F. Woodbridge, England for 6 years before moving to Khobar Towers Saudi Arabia, and Myrtle Beach A.F.B South Carolina.
We have three children.

The first, my only daughter, was born under the British National Health System, because the hospital was in the town we lived in, and My A.F. Base didn’t have a hospital, just a clinic. The nearest USAF hospital was more than 50 miles away, and besides my wife is British so it wasn’t going to cost us any money.

My first son was born under the american medicade system, at a time when I was unfortunately  unemployed.

My second son was born under Chrysler / uaw ( “Cadillac” thanks Nancy Pelosi ) Health care insurance.

The difference between the three is interesting. Chrysler Health insurance is the gold standard. Hospital of our choice. Doctor of our choice. Multiple ultrasounds. any and all tests. Semi-private room. And because of an emergency c-section She spent 5 days in the hospital.

With the Medicade system. We had No choice of Doctor. No choice of Hospital. Medicare allowed only the minimum tests and ultra sound. The Doctor we had was the same that delivered our son but she was inexperienced. The nursing staff treated us the way a cashier at a grocery store treats someone with food stamps. OK, I was unemployed, But does anyone DESERVE to be treated that way?

The British NHS…
My daughter was born in a british hospital in 6 hours without a doctor….Midwives are cheaper.
My daughter was my first child, we were young and I didn’t know any better. Yes there was a doctor on the ward. yes he was busy. No, my wife didn’t Need him….But isn’t that just luck?

Ipswich england has a population of about 140,000 with only one hospital.
In a recent news article my mother in law sent me says that the Ipswich hospital was losing its cardiac unit because it was too expensive. The government believes that the travel time of about an hour to the next cost-effective hospital is “acceptable”

Percentage referred to a medical specialist who see one within one month:
U.S. 77%
England 40%
Canada 43%

Number of MRI scanners (a prime diagnostic tool) per million people:
U.S. 71
England 14
Canada 18

Percentage of seniors (65+), with low-income, who say they are in “excellent health”:
U.S. 12%
England 2%
Canada 6%

Percentage of seniors needing hip replacement who received it within six months:
U.S. 90%
England 15%
Canada 43%

In 1996 My Father in law was told that he would need a hip replacement, So he was put on a waiting list.
At 65 he had a lot of life left in him, and my children couldn’t wait to see Grandpa, whether we went to england or they came to see us. As time Passed they had to sell their home because he could no longer climb the stairs.
Finally, after waiting seven years, Grandpa got the operation.
He died three days later from blood poisoning.
The doctor admitted that it was his fault.
You can’t sue the government for malpractice.

“Barack Obama will pass health care reform, demonstrating whose side we’re on.”

Connecticut Rep. John Larson, chairman of the Democratic Caucus, said Sunday morning that “we have the votes” to pass health care reform legislation in the House.

Speaking on ABC’s This Week, Larson said, “We are going to make history today. Not since President Roosevelt passed Social Security, Lyndon Johnson passed Medicare, and today, Barack Obama will pass health care reform, demonstrating whose side we’re on.”

The House is scheduled to begin debate at 1 p.m. eastern time Sunday with votes on the legislation expected to start about 6 p.m

“Others want to know why I am voting against it.”

This week my offices have been inundated with thousands of calls, emails and faxes about H.R. 3590, the Democratic majority’s health care bill.

Some people want to know more about what is in the bill. Others want to know why I am voting against it.

That’s why I’ve released a series of short web articles on the 2400 page health care bill, describing some of my concerns about it. Check out:

H.R. 3590 – Individual Mandate

H.R. 3590 – How much will health care reform really cost? 

H.R. 3590 – “Pay or Play” Mandate

H.R. 3590 – Reconciliation: Just the Facts!

H.R. 3590 – Sweetheart Deals

H.R. 3590 – Abortion Funding

You can also visit my website for more detailed information about the health care reform principles I support and alternative legislation I have co-sponsored.

Right now, it looks like a vote on H.R. 3590 will occur on Sunday afternoon. I will be working through the weekend and getting you the latest details via Facebook, Twitter & my website.

Thank you for your input during this important time for our country.

 Sincerely,

W. Todd Akin

Call to Arms: Join Me in DC Saturday to Stop ObamaCare

by Jon Voight I am calling to all of you freedom-loving Americans to come once again to Washington D.C. to gather at upper Senate Park, across from the Capitol on Saturday, at 12 o’clock noon.

We must come by the thousands.

Speaker Pelosi will stop at nothing to fulfill her corrupt conquests. She will bring all of the corrupt ACORN liars to try to bully all the Democrats that may be having pangs of guilt knowing quite surely what their votes can and will do. If they’re bullied into saying “yes,” it will destroy America.

Join me and Rep. Michele Bachmann in Washington DC at 12 noon EST so we can give all the Democrats who know what the end result will be the courage to say: “No, do not pass this destructive bill.”

I’ll see you there.

Dueling Health Care.
