The big cuts are coming!The big cuts are coming! And Trump and the Congress don’t give it a damn of what you think or feel. Campaign promises? They are meant to be broken after the election.

Americans are the most gullible ones when it comes to their politicians.

They hate the Congress but keep sending the same representatives and senators back to DC. They filled the White House with liars after liars because they believe all the lies presidential candidates told them on the campaign trail, just to break all of them once in the office.

When Trump was asking your votes, he promised to“save Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security without cuts.”

Trump’s 2018 budget calls for cuts on all three programs and the congressional GOP also tried to cut $1 trillion from Medicare and about half a trillion from Medicaid. Here are the proposed cuts from Trump’s “An American Budget: Major Savings and Reforms”:

  1. Cutting Medicare by $266 billion.
  2. Cutting Medicaid by $1.1 trillion.
  3. Cutting Social Security by $72 billion.

So, all sinile and age challenged Americans, brace yourself for what is coming to you. Hospitals will get reduced payments from the Medicare too. Medicaid will see the biggest cut totaling $1.1 trillion over 10 years.

Additionally, Supplemental Security Income programs and Social Security Disability Insurance programs will see $72 billion cuts too.

You see, there is no place for you to hide no matter where you are in the system. Your medical benefits will be cut. Your doctor’s visits will be

Medicare is under the knife. Again! October 5, 2017

Reid, Pelosi and Obama took $716 billion from Medicare in 2012 to pay for Obamacare. AARP did very little to prevent it becoming the law of the land. Now, the program is blowing up in the market place and is adding trillions to the national debt.

This time around, it’s Republican’s turn to make a deep cut, about $500 billions, to the Medicare budgets because the Republican controls all three branches of the American government.

In addition to Medicare, Medicaid is on the chopping blocks too. Budgets for Medicaid will be cut by roughly $1 trillion.

To get money to pay for Republican’s tax cut, it means that something else from the federal government’s budget has to be slashed to make the tax cut legislature revenue neutral. Budgets for Medicare and Medicaid are just two of the tens, if not hundreds, of federal programs to be cut by the Republican’s tax reform.

Well, more details of the tax reform plan will come out in the next few weeks. No matter what kind of bill the House ends up with, it is a done deal because Democrat is totally out-numbered and out-maneuvered. Democrat in the Senate is hopeless to prevent this from becoming law in the Senate but several Republican senators may be able to make the damage to Medicare budget as little as possible.

We’ll just have to wait to see what happens next in the Congress. Not much we the tax payers can do now because it’s democracy.

貉的英文是 raccoon dog。它跟 raccoon 是不一樣的。Raccoon 的中文是狸。這兩種動物長得有點像,可是它們在血源上是不相連的。

這是 Raccoon 狸:

而 Raccoon dog 長得是這個樣子:

那一丘之貉是什麼意思呢?一丘是一個小土山頭。這句話就是說,一個山頭上所有的貉長得都很像。

其實,政客就跟一丘之貉一樣,個個都長的一個樣,每個都醜的很。每個政客在競選前說的話,在競選時提出來的保證,都跟放屁一樣。像洞裏吹出來的一陣風,一出來就風消雲散,無踪無影。

Trump 是一個政客,是一丘之貉中間的一個。

Trump 競選時說他不會動 Social security, Medicare and Medicaid.. 他不止一次的相選民保證,他絕對不會砍這幾個項目的撥款。

可是,共和黨提出來, Trump 也支持,今天(3/23/2017)就要在眾議院投票,爲平反 Obamacare 所提出來的法案,讓我們姑且稱它爲 Ryancare,中間就有砍 Nedicare 和 Medicaid 的條款。

簡單的說, Trump 明明白白,完完全全的違背了他競選時提出來的保證。

Yes, sooner or later, your Medicare premium will increase. It is coming for some next year. Surprised? Don’t be. You should know that it is coming. Don’t forget that Obama and Democrat controlled Congress robbed $700 billion from Medicare to pay for Obamacare. Did you know that?

And what has Obamacare done for you? And what shape is Obamacare at right now?

I said it before that the U.S. is moving toward socialism fast after 8 years of Obama. If Hillary and Bill are elected into the WH,  America is forever 淪陷.

Hello, middle class, get your tax money ready. America wants you.

UPS now. More to come. August 29, 2013

UPS announced on 8-23-2013 that it will drop health insurance for spouses of 15,000 employees.

Who to blame? Obama,  Pelosi, Reid, all Democrats in the Congress and Obamacare.

Wow! UPS, among all companies big and small in the U.S. UPS is a company with strong unions and I suppose that many of UOS’ s union members voted for Obama in 2008 and again in 2012.

Look what did these union guys get in return?

They got Obama first and then dropped health insurance for their spouses because of Obamacare.

I said a while back that many people were digging a hole to bury themselves later if they gave their votes to Obama, the most liberal president in modern history.  Sure enough they are eating their own s#*& now.

Well, we have a perfect saying for these union people:

天做孽尤可违, 自做孽不可活。

这叫”报应.”

Obamacare is one of the worst laws ever passed by the Democrats. It was a complete breakdown of the democratic process.

It was totally tyrannical because:
The way Obamacare was passed in Congress: openly selling votes and openly accepting bribery by Democrats in Congress.

The way Obamacare was forced upon American citizens by lying about the true costs of Obamacare: balancing 7 year’s costs by 10 year’s revenue. This was classified as budget neutral for the next decade and Obama and company lied through their teeth all the time.

The quote of the century by Nancy Pelosi on Obamacare: “We have to pass it to find out what’s in it.” This was abusing democracy of the epic proportion. And Pelosi was reelected again. This kind of strange thing only happens in the US.

Grant waivers to companies on part of the Obamacare.

Pick and choose parts of Obamacare law to enforce by fiat.

Obama and company lied repeatly to American people that their insurance premium will decrease under Obamacare.

$650 billion of Medicare money was diverted away to pay for Obamacare but the seniors were too old or too lazy to recognize that.

Finally, Obamacare was upheld by the chief Justice who was put in that position by a Republic president.

This was also” 天做孽尤可违, 自做孽不可活。”

报应啊! 报应啊!

“Yes, yes. Absolutely, yes.” Harry Reid, 8-9-2013 August 17, 2013

What was that, you might ask?

Well, that was the answer Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid gave when he was asked whether he wanted to change Obamacare to a single payer system for America.

Democrat has been trying to do this for decades and Reid finally admitted that this is the ultimate goal of the Democratic Party with Obamacare.

No more private insurance companies. No more Medicare. No more Medicaid, No more employer-sponsored health insurance plans.

Everyone will be covered under the single payer system, except Representatives and Senators, the ones who wrote the law. They already passed laws to exempt themselves from Obamacare.

No more fancy and expensive medical schools. Four year education will be plenty because doctors will be paid by how many patients they treat every day. If they don’t meet the minimum quota for the day, they get paid minimum wages. Doctors still can make a lot of money if they can rush sick people through government clinics like herds of cattle or pigs. The pay scale is mot lineal. Their salary goes up exponentially after the patient count exceeds certain level.

CVS, Walgreen, Ride Aid and Wal-Mart will no longer sell prescription medicines because patients will get their medicines filled at government clinics.  

Pfizer, Merck, Amgen and Medtronics might as well close their shops and let their medical research people go because new drugs or new medical instruments will not be covered by the single payer system.

As for the cost of insurance, it will be on a progressive scale. People will be issued colored code cards. The more assets (not salary) you have, the more you have to pay; kind like income tax, you know, when you see a doctor. This is only fair according to Democrat’s philosophy. The amount people pay will also depend on their weight: the more people weigh, the more they have to pay. If you smoke, you pay more. If you eat bacon or sausages,  you pay more. If you smoke, you can kiss your insurance policy goodbye. If you don’t exercise, you pay a penalty. If you drink coke on a regular basis, your diabetics will not be treated. If you are too old, government death panel will access your usefulness to the society and make a judgement as to whether certain illness will or will not be treated. Cancel patients will be left to die because it basically is a hopeless endeavor.

This isn’t it. There are more regulations and restrictions, but according to Pelosi, “we have to pass it to find out what was in it.” We can’t expect our elected Representative or Senator Congress waste their time on going over all pages of the bill they about to pass, can we? They don’t have  time or inclination to do such a time-consuming thing.

I am telling you that the single-payer system is coming because many Republicans will not fight it. They need votes to stay in power too. America is a democratic society, America is a democracy and majority rules.

Even it is 50.01% of the people who have voted. 

Well, yesterday on PBS’ Nevada Week In Review , (D., Nev.) was asked whether his goal was to move Obamacare to a single-payer system. His answer? “Yes, yes. Absolutely, yes.”

  • Growth of New Jobs Declining

The trend is very clear!

7.5 million fewer people looking for jobs

  • People who are working in US: 155.80 million. But people who are NOT working: 89.96 million

Almost 90 million people not working in the US. Amazing!

Almost 90 million people not working in the US. Amazing!

More part time jobs created due to Obamacare

  • New jobs under Obama are low paying jobs
    • Retailers: 47,000 jobs
    • Restaurants: 38,000 jobs.
  • Obama’s policy is hollowing out America from the middle

Greek ‘Rebels’ May Block Reforms On Austerity Moves

That’s why Greece is going to default sooner or later.

Across the pond is this headline:

American “seniors” will block reforms on Medicare and Medicaid.

And that’s why America will not be able to get out this big hole it dug for itself.

America is going down whether Obama likes it or not.

New Doctors’ friend – Don Berwick July 8, 2010

For those new doctors who are still finding their ways through hours of salving around hospitals all over the United States, your jobs have just become a little easier.

You have a new frioend in ObamaCare: Don Berwick.

Make sure you know this guy if you don’t already. He likes the British’s national health system (NHS) and something like that is coming to the United States.

Obama has just by-passed the Senator and appointed Don Berwick the head of Medicare and Medicaids, the second largest health insurance companies in the world funded on tax payer’s backs. Recess appointment is completely legal and there is not a whole lot anyone can do anything about it.

But, consider these:

  • The combined budget for Medicares and Medicaids is larger than that of the Defense department: $759 billion for Medicare and Medicaids vs $685 billion for DoD.
  • Medicare and Medicaids combined are responsible for 98 million people’s health.
  • Berwick was a consultant to British’s NHS, back when Tony Blair was the prime minister. Berwick was romantic about the NHS; He loved it. And you can bet your bottom dollar that hells transform ObamaCare to NHS when he has his way. As the head of Medicare and Medicaids, he is at the right place to make the change.
  • Berwick’s comment on government dishing out health care decisions can be summarized in the following comments:
    • “I am romantic about the NHS; I love it. All I need to do to rediscover the romance is to look at health care in my own country.”
    • “Any health care funding plan that is just equitable civilized and humane must, must redistribute wealth from the richer among us to the poorer and the less fortunate. Excellent health care is by definition redistributional.”
    • “The decision is not whether or not we will ration care – the decision is whether we will ration with our eyes open. And right now, we are doing it blindly.”
  • In other words, Berwick thinks that doctors and patients can not decide what kind of treatment we can have under the guideline of insurance companies. Berwick thinks that it is up to the all-knowing, almighty government agency which will make up new regulations and instructions and make medical and life and death decisions for you. Many of these regulations and instructions for ObamaCare will be decided by Berwick.
  • In 3 or 4 years when ObamaCare becomes effective, our doctors will carry an iPad with them at all times. He’s make the diagnosis, check his iPad and tell us what we can or can’t have according to government regulations. If you are too old, say 90 years old, you can not have the latest drug or technology because those are reserved for younger patients who can live longer.
  • Doctor’s job will be easier after ObamaCare becomes the law of the land. Treatments for every illness will be itemized for different age groups and they can be called up with a couple of key taps on the iPad. Doctors can’t afford to spend too much time with each patient because there won’t be enough doctors for everybody in the United States. A standard treatment program will make doctor’s job much easier.
  • If an older patient dies because he or she couldn’t get the treatment or drug he or she needed, it is not doctor’s fault. They did their jobs based on what government tells them to.

Where is AARP when the seniors need it?

The current health insurance bill, if past, will take $500+ billion away from Medicare.

Do seniors know that medical rationing is coming thanks to the gang of three: BHO, Pelosi and Reid?
