Barack Obama’s Affordable Health Act team has a perilous secret they do not want Americans to know about. This sneaky element of ObamaCare is so frightening, that most individuals who learn about it, liken this to a Hollywood science-fiction movie.
Over the years, millions have seen such movies, from Soylent Green to Hunger Games, portray a takeover of individual freedoms and control of lives with varying degrees of imagination. But it’s an understatement to conclude that the truth of this secret is very real and the principal reason a fast and growing number of physicians, healthcare providers and patients have incredibly low opinions of Obamacare.
What makes this secret especially shocking and frightful is that it was devised by the brother of one of President Obama’s closest political friends, his former White House Chief of Staff and the current controversial mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel. How this system affects the average life of individual Americans is revealing grim consequences.
Through payroll taxes, the average citizen dutifully pays throughout their lifetime with an expectation they will receive complete Medicare benefits for health needs. ObamaCare’s harmful secret has changed everything. The secret is known as the “Reaper Curve.” With half a decade of ObamaCare implementation, the undebatable truths have become obvious. Political appointees are now deciding who should get medical care and whose life is worth saving.
The Reaper Curve is a system that treats individuals as if they were commodities in a lottery that rations health care to those that are more investment worthy. Adolsecents and young adults get higher priority for healthcare than infants are older adults.
According to this Reaper Curve,” the time an American adult reaches age 50, they only have a 50% chance of getting “medical intervention,” or what they need to survive, in the event of a critical ailment. By the time they turn 65, they will only have less than 25% chance of getting needed intervention.
“If you are lucky enough to be born, you had better be very healthy, for it looks like you have to be alive for about 2 years before you have an even 25% chance of getting needed medical care,” explained the American Thinker. “By the time you are 10 years old you just have a 50% chance for critical care. Too bad for you if you have an early or complicated birth. And you’d better live a pretty protected childhood.”
Monday, Dr. John Tedeschi a practicing physician in New Jersey and one of the first doctors to call out Obamacare by stating it was all about saving money and “where the money IS ultimately spent, is directed to special interest, profit-making organizations,” continued to underscore the harm of the health plan.
“There is no longer an intent interest or investment in humanity or compassion,” stressed Dr. Tedeschi. “Physicians are serving two masters.”
Dr. Tedeschi points out that the drafters of ObamaCare, Ezekiel Emanuel (the brother of Chicago’s Rahm Emanuel) and his co-harts, have key responsibility. “At one time, the practice of medicine in America was the envy of the world. Unfortunately, it has now been radically segmented.”
The “two masters” that doctors must serve under the ObamaCare socialistic system of Emanuel’s thinking, is to both the patient and society. Emanuel, Obama and Hillary Clinton are attempting to redefines the duty of a physician by insisting that they work for the society instead of focusing only on a patient’s needs. In 2009, Dr. Emanuel published a “complete lives system” allocation in Lancet. In this system, Emanuel calls for the distribution of rare resources, such as dialysis machines, intensive bed care beds, kidneys, vaccines, and more, to be based on age and statistics.
“However, other things are rarely equal — whether to save one 20-year-old, who might live another 60 years, if saved, or three 70-year-olds, who could only live for another 10 years each — is unclear,” wrote Emanuel. “When implemented, the complete lives system produces a priority curve on which individuals aged roughly 15 and 40 years get the most substantial chance, whereas the youngest and oldest people get chances that are attenuated…”
The litmus test on how this Reaper’s Curve is working is to ask any doctor, nurse, physician’s assistant, medical office staff or patient who has dealt with insurance and healthcare the past year. Most will tell you it is becoming more difficult to obtain acceptance for medical care, especially critical care. Meanwhile, insurance premiums promise to keep increasing, a dozen state insurance co-ops have failed, enrollment in ObamaCare is projected to taper off, and the majority of recently insured people have essentially just been pushed into Medicaid. It’s so bad that insurance companies say they need billions of dollars in taxpayer bailouts to keep up with more cost increases. Obamacare is pulling apart and disrupting America’s health care system and it is negatively effecting millions.
“I think of (Obamacare) as giving everyone an ATM card in a town where there are no ATM machines,” said Dr. Dr. Ryan A. Stanton, who works at the Georgetown Community Hospital near Lexington, Kentucky.
Dr. Tedeschi explains that what Emanuel has accomplished is the assigning of value to people’s lives to distribute health care money among us. “Benefit to the patient is secondary,” clarifies the doctor. “And physicians have nowhere to turn for help.”
Dr. Tedeschi explained that this radical change has been so choreographed—“better than a Broadway musical”—it happened so “gradually you hardly notice it at first. It’s a slow and deliberate erosion, targeting your family doctor, someone who will soon become a thing of the past.”
“Thanks to politics, insurance companies, special interest groups and other organizations, medicine is changing: the way it’s provided; who it’s provided to; exactly who the providers are; their qualifications; how much it costs and, literally, ‘who lives and who dies,’” the Dr. Tedeschi is adamant. “The old saying ‘follow the money’” has never been truer than it is today.
“We’re moving away from the mission of medicine and more towards the business of healthcare, and these two endeavors are not the same thing,” Twila Brase, President of the Citizens’ Council For Health Freeman states. “We’re moving in the wrong direction.”
“When other people hold the dollars, the mission of medicine is compromised,” Brase reminds people frequently. “Whether it’s the government, or an insurance company, the agendas of the people with the money ultimately take precedence over the needs of the patient.”
“Ezekiel Emanuel is one of the most frightening characters I’ve ever seen being taken seriously as an advocate for any public policy,” commented Eric Sansoni in the Wall Street Journal back in 2013. “We should all be paying for his mental health care just so he can be locked up in a straitjacket in a padded room somewhere where he can do this country no more harm.”
“Who is he to say that the young, the old and the mentally disabled are less valuable to society than anyone else and that they should be denied care? Is that true even if the senior citizen is a great author and the 25-year-old is a pot-smoking, unemployed loser?”
