"Vague promises of savings from cutting waste, enhancing prevention and wellness, installing electronic medical records and improving quality are merely 'lipstick' cost control, more for show and public relations than for true change," he wrote last year (Health Affairs Feb. 27, 2008). Savings, he writes, will require changing how doctors think about their patients: Doctors take the Hippocratic Oath too seriously, "as an imperative to do everything for the patient regardless of the cost or effects on others" (Journal of the American Medical Association, June 18, 2008).
Dr. Ezekial Emanuel (brother to chief of staff Rahm Emanuel)
Article comes from the New York Post and is called, "DEADLY DOCTORS" By BETSY MCCAUGHEY
I got it from the home first site at http://www.homefirst.com/content/view/366/
The article further states the following about Dr. Emanuel, "He has already been appointed to two key positions: health-policy adviser at the Office of Management and Budget and a member of Federal Council on Comparative Effectiveness Research."
Guess what? This is who will be making decisions on what kind of health care your going to get. Anyone who has done research on the history of medicine knows that people used to die more often than survive surgery. It had to do a lot with sterile technique and such but that is beside the point. The real point is ARE WE HEADING BACK THERE?
An article by Dr. Jane Orient for the "New American" magazine more than proves that our modern health care issues are from socialized medicine in the form of medicare. So now were going to fix the problems caused by socialism with MORE SOCIALISM???? If you want to stop your migraine do keep smashing it against the wall? I mean it hasn't worked before but I just know it will someday. So get ready for doctors who don't take the "Hippocratic oath TOO SERIOUSLY." So don't get sick America.... Socialized euthanasia will soon arrive.
P.S. I hate even to quote this man in the same blog I quote men like John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. However, these words are very historic to our time.
