Obamacare At 10: A Big F-ing Failure

By John Merline

Ten years ago this month, when President Obama Barack was signing Obamacare into law, Vice President Joe Biden said to him in a stage whisper “This is a big f***ing deal.” A decade later, Obamacare has turned out to be a big f***ing failure. And Biden is now promising to expand it.

Remember “you can keep your plan”? Or “family premiums will go down by $2,500”? How about the claim that Obamacare would cut the number of uninsured in half? That it would dramatically reduce the federal deficit? And that it would make the health care industry more efficient?

None of it came true. The very name of the law – The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act – was an exercise in false advertising.

Affordable? Premiums in the individual market doubled in Obamacare’s first four years. The result was that millions of middle-class families found themselves priced out of the insurance market altogether. Patient protection? Those who could afford the premiums faced enormous deductibles for HMO-style plans that strictly limited which doctors they could see and hospitals they could use – unless they wanted to pay the entire costs out of pocket.

Those who get insurance through work didn’t see any savings, either. Where Obama promised that families would see premiums drop by $2,500,  they went up faster in the five years after Obamacare than in the five years before. (Premiums for employer-provided family coverage climbed 27% from 2010 to 2015, compared with 26% from 2005 to 2010, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.)

Overhead costs now claim a bigger share of national health spending than they did before Obamacare – going from 6.7% in 2010 to 8.4% in 2018, according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

The electronic health records that Obama mandated have made health care less efficient, caused new types of medical errors, and have produced waves of doctor burnout.

Here’s another way to gauge the failure of Obamacare:

Back in March 2010, the Congressional Budget Office – which is supposed to be nonpartisan but in fact employs liberal economic models in everything it does – predicted what health care would look like in the first 10 years of Obamacare.

The Scourge of Obamacare Continues: Losses Incurred at ACA Exchanges Will Cost Taxpayers $12 Billion This Year

By Lance D Johnson

When the tyrannical Democrat majority shut down the federal government in 2013 to force Americans without health insurance to pay fines for the Affordable Care Act, Americans had no choice but to accept their chains and hope that the law would make healthcare more affordable. Not everyone accepted those chains.

As health insurance premiums went up for many and as fines mounted, Obamacare became increasingly unpopular with the American people. Since then, Obamacare has become a scourge to the country, costing taxpayers so much money, Congress now refuses to appropriate money to pay for the multiple billions of dollars lost over the years. In fact, losses incurred at the ACA exchanges are set to cost taxpayers $12 billion this year. Insurance companies are currently petitioning the Supreme Court to force Congress to appropriate taxpayer money to cover for Obamacare’s incredible amount of losses.

Obamacare was a tyrannical financial scourge from the beginning

This Is Why So Many Americans Are Deathly Afraid of Going to the Hospital…

By Michael Snyder

What you are about to read in this article is likely to make you very angry.  Once upon a time, the primary mission of our hospitals was to help people, but today they have become vicious financial predators.  Many Americans try very hard to avoid visiting the hospital because of what it might cost, but if an emergency happens there is no choice.  They often get us when we are at our most vulnerable, and they never explain to us in advance how much their services will actually cost.  And then eventually when the bills start arriving we discover that they have charged us 30 dollars for a single aspirin or “$2,000 for a $20 feeding tube”.  It is a giant scam, but they have been getting away with it for decades, and so they just keep on doing it.  And many hospitals go after those that are not able to pay their ridiculous bills extremely aggressively.  Just consider the following example which comes to us from USA Today

Heather Waldron and John Hawley are losing their four-bedroom house in the hills above Blacksburg, Virginia. A teenage daughter, one of their five children, sold her clothes for spending money. They worried about paying the electric bill. Financial disaster, they said, contributed to their divorce, finalized in April.

Their money problems began when the University of Virginia Health System pursued the couple with a lawsuit and a lien on their home to recoup $164,000 in charges for Waldron’s emergency surgery in 2017.

I can’t imagine any surgery that should ever cost $164,000.  You can buy an entire house for that amount of money.  It is highway robbery, and those that are engaged in this sort of predatory pricing are literally crooks.

Sadly, Heather Waldron and John Hawley have a lot of company.  Over the past six years, the University of Virginia Health System has sued 36,000 patients

Video: Google Buries Health Web Site Mercola.com in Their Latest Search Engine Update

Story at-a-glance

  • This year, we’ve seen an unprecedented push to implement censorship across all online platforms, making obtaining and sharing crucial information about health in general, and vaccines in particular, increasingly difficult
  • Google’s June 2019 update, which took effect June 3, has effectively removed Mercola.com from Google search results
  • When entering a health-related search word into Google, you will no longer find Mercola.com articles in the search results. The only way to locate Mercola articles is by adding “Mercola.com” to the search word(s) in question
  • Mercola’s fully referenced content has been at the top of health search results for over 15 years
  • If undesirable pages don’t vanish automatically in the new algorithm, Google’s quality raters will manually manipulate crowdsourced relevance to bury the page or pages

Trump Just Revolutionized Health Care — And Nobody Noticed


Few have ever heard of “Health Reimbursement Accounts,” but they could fundamentally change the nation’s health care system — for the better — and destroy the Democrats’ case for socialized health care.

Late last week, the Trump administration finalized rules that will let companies put money into tax-exempt HRAs that their employees could then used to buy an individual insurance plan on their own. Seems like no big deal, right? Except it will start to unravel a 77-year-old policy mistake that is largely responsible for many of the problems the health care system suffers today.

Back in 1942, the Roosevelt administration imposed wage and price controls on the economy. But it exempted employer-provided benefits like health insurance, and the IRS later decreed that these benefits wouldn’t be taxed as income.

The result was to massively tilt the health insurance playing field toward employer-provided insurance. Today 88% of those with private insurance get it at work.

The massive tax subsidy — now valued at more than $300 billion — also encouraged overly generous health plans, because any health care paid by insurers was tax exempt, while out of pocket spending had to come from after-tax dollars.

So not only did this Roosevelt-era mistake create an employer-dominated health insurance market, it made consumers largely indifferent to the cost of care, since the vast bulk of it was picked up by a third party.

But while health care experts across the political spectrum recognize this mistake, Democrats’ response has been to get the government even more involved in health care, with the latest proposal a total government takeover under the guise of “Medicare for All.”

Video: Big Pharma, Forced Vaccinations, And Population Control

What does the globalist medical-industrial-complex have in store for humanity?

In 1986, The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program was established to protect the Vaccine manufacturers from any liabilities.

This program insured that the taxpayer would pay for all injuries the public suffered from Vaccines.

Once this protection was set in place, the government took control of the vaccine industry and Big Pharma profits increased by over 600%.

Is it all about money? Or is there something more nefarious at play?

Video: Dan Crenshaw Levels ‘Medicare For All’ Pipe Dream

Dan Crenshaw is the future of the GOP. At least… I hope so. I think he’s exactly the direction we need to be going in. He’s charismatic, he’s funny, he knows how to use social media to his advantage, and most importantly… he gets it.

He’s spot on in nearly every policy I’ve ever heard him discuss.

So when I say Dan Crenshaw for President… I’m not kidding.  I’m HOPING.

Anyway, during a House Budget Committee hearing on Wednesday, Crenshaw explained exactly why single-payer simply won’t work for us.

A Cancer Cure Has Gotten Out Of Control And Has Spread Beyond The Confines Of Modern Medicine

By Bill Sardi

While Wall Street awaits the entry of over 1,813 new cancer drugs into human clinical trials representing billions of dollars of investment capital, the announcement of a bona fide cure for cancer comes from an outsider – patient Joe Tippens.

An astounding report of Mr. Tippens’ cancer cure is circulating the internet now.  First diagnosed with small cell lung cancer in 2016 and with tumors popping up on scans in virtually every organ in his body, in desperation Joe Tippens began using a dog de-worming agent at the suggestion of a veterinarian.

He was told this cancer cure “was batting 1,000 in killing different cancers.”  He heard one of the scientists involved in the research was cured.  He had no time to dither.  He was weeks away from dying.

Treatment began in the third week of January 2017.  Three months later at MD Anderson Cancer Hospital in Houston, Tippens anxiously awaited the report of his oncologist who had no idea Tippens started taking the dog deworming medication.

The doctor is reported to have walked up to Mr. Tippens and said: “I am going to have to ask you to leave this hospital, because we only

Within just 3 months his cancer vanished.  His insurance company spent $1.2 million before Tippens switched to a $5 a week medicine that saved his life.  Daily vitamins and CBD oil were also an essential part of his curative regimen.  Here’s the video report.

Don’t think Big Pharma isn’t involved here.  Merck Animal Health division makes the de-worming drug that has gone up in price since the report of Tippens’ cure spread in the news media.

Joe Tippens now reports at his own “My Cancer Story Rocks” blog site that is bustling with visitors.

He now says around 40 otherwise hopeless cancer patients have reported similar cures.

He continues to take the anti-worming medication and dietary supplements as prevention.

His dietary supplement regimen that he still adheres to is as follows:

  • Vitamin E complex (tocotrienols, tocopherols)
  • Curcumin (turmeric extract 600 mg/day
  • CBD oil

The history of this cure

The anti-tumor therapy involves an anti-worming agent used for horses and dogs. It has been deemed to be safe by the Food & Drug Administration.  Published studies involving this canine drug, fenbendazole, date back a couple of decades.  There has been a lot of foot dragging over fenbendazole since it was unexpectedly reported to exhibit potent anti-cancer properties when combined with a vitamin regimen in laboratory animals in a study published in 2008.

Researchers reported that fenbendazole alone or vitamins alone did not alter the size or growth of implanted tumors in laboratory mice.  But their combination produced a striking increase in activity of one type of white blood cell, neutrophils, resulting in a no-growth effect.  There also was strong inhibition of a protein (hypoxia inducing factor) that induces hypoxia (absence of oxygen) which forces cancer cells to utilize sugar for energy rather than oxygen.

In the laboratory this drug/vitamin combo overcame treatment resistance as well.

Researchers were initially investigating fenbendazole because it was interfering with anti-tumor studies with other drugs.

Given that pinworms are a common problem in laboratories where mice are employed in pre-clinical testing of anti-cancer drugs, use of fenbendazole to clear these animals of parasites is standard practice.

Unexpectedly, fenbendazole halted the growth of implanted human lymphoma cells in rodents.

To prevent animal infection during the testing period the chow fed to these lab animals is sterilized and then vitamins and minerals (vitamin A, D, E, K and B) are added back to eliminate variance in nutrient intake.  But the chow for these lab animals in question was not sterilized and therefore more nutrients were delivered to these animals than normal.

Whereas implanted tumors take hold and grow 80-100% of the time, in this experiment none of the implanted tumors grew among 40 animals over a 30-day period!  This was striking.
