Cancer Survivor Loses Doctor After Signing Up For Obamacare, No Doctors For 400 Miles

Ridiculous. Meanwhile this woman is out hundreds of dollars per month for care she didn’t get…

Via Weekly Standard:

An Oklahoma woman signed up for a new health insurance plan–only to find that there’s not a doctor that will accept that plan within 400 miles. KTEN-TV reports that Janet Grigg, a cancer survivor, moved to Durant, Oklahoma to care for her elderly mother. But after signing onto a Blue Cross Blue Shield plan via the Obamacare website, she discovered she would need to pay out of pocket for her annual cancer screenings.

Worse, Grigg says she was told “that I would not find a doctor within a 400-mile radius from Dallas up to Oklahoma City that would, in fact, take the plan that I had chosen

COMING SOON UNDER OBAMACARE: 115 Day Waiting Period to See Doctor

American veterans at the Phoenix veterans hospital were forced to wait an average 115 days for their first medical appointment. These waiting times are reportedly systemic throughout the VA.

If this is how the government treats its military men and women, how do you think the government will treat ordinary Americans?


The joys of government-run health care.
The AP reported:

Veterans at the Phoenix veterans hospital waited on average 115 days for their first medical appointment, which is 91 days longer than the hospital reported, the Department of Veteran Affairs’ internal watchdog said Wednesday.

The news brought immediate calls for the resignation of Veterans Secretary Eric Shinseki from Rep. Jeff Miller, R-Fla., chairman of the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee, and Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.

Miller also said Attorney General Eric Holder should conduct a criminal investigation into the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Richard J. Griffin, the department’s acting inspector general, reported that investigators had “substantiated serious conditions” at the Phoenix VA hospital, including 1,700 veterans awaiting care who were not on an official waiting list.

“We have substantiated that significant delays in access to care negatively impacted the quality of care at this medical facility,” Griffin wrote.

Miller said the report confirmed that “wait time schemes and data manipulation are systemic throughout VA and are putting veterans at risk in Phoenix and across the country.”

Giuliani: In Every Area Of World, America Is In “Much Worse Position Since Obama Came Into Office”

According to plan…

Via Newsmax:

President Barack Obama came into office lacking basic executive skills, and after six years in office has shown he does not have natural leadership capabilities to manage the country, said former Republican Mayor of New York City Rudy Giuliani.

“He’s not cut out to be an executive. He doesn’t have either the background and experience or the natural skills of an executive,” Giuliani told Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” Friday. “There is nothing in this man’s background to suggest that he could run the most complicated organization in the world.”

Giuliani said when Obama took office, he hoped he would have “the natural talent” to lead effectively, but said the president has since shown “he doesn’t have it.” The president’s temperament was suited, by instinct, to that of a “professor,” Giuliani suggested.

Parents Of Vet Treated At Phoenix VA Facility Read His Suicide Note On Air


CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin broke down on air Friday afternoon as the parents of Iraq War veteran Daniel Somers read his suicide letter. Somers wrote in the note that the VA failed him.

Somers was a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom and served in over 400 combat missions. He suffered from fibromyalgia and PTSD and killed himself last year after he received treatment from the Phoenix VA hospital. He wrote that his body had become “nothing but a cage, a source of pain and constant problems.”

Somers’ parents read an excerpt of his suicide note on CNN Friday afternoon: “Is it any wonder then that the latest figures show 22 veterans killing themselves each day? That is more veterans than children killed at Sandy Hook every single day. Where are the huge policy initiatives? Why isn’t the president standing with those families at the State of the Union? Perhaps because we were not killed by a single lunatic but rather by our system of dehumanization, neglect, and indifference.”

It took three months for Somers to receive initial treatment because the VA was confused over his status as a member of the National Guard. He was shuffled around the system, going from the Phoenix VA hospital to a Department of Defense hospital before the Phoenix VA finally agreed to give him care.

“He was only seen because we had a connection at the facility and they were able to let him in,” said Howard Somers, his father.

Why Burger King Is Leaving Military Bases


When will this crap stop? I guess when he is finally out of office and that can’t come any too soon. The beat goes on……the unions are pissed as they want the employer to pick up the costs of Obamacare. This should come as no surprise to anyone. Politicians and bureaucrats never consider second, third and forth order effects. His idea of CHANGE is to bankrupt this country and he’s doing
it while we all sit idle. Please wake up AMERICA and get the word out.
Please forward – all active military and veterans should be aware of what’s going on at our military installations. VOTE this idiot and his kind out of office


This has been checked this out on “” and it is true.

I did not think even Obama would stoop this low.

The Burger King national headquarters announced this month that they will be Pulling their franchises from our military bases. Soon to follow will be
Popeye’s Chicken, Pizza franchises and the chain of barber and beauty shops Which operates inside the gates of our military facilities. Reason?
Obama’s mandate that all companies who do business with the federal Government pay a $10.10 per hour minimum wage.

The companies cite the fact that a limited military customer base cannot sustain Acceptable profit margins while still offering up a hefty share of profits to
The Army and Air Force Exchange System’s Health and Morale fund and paying $10.10 an hour as Obama has directed for any contractor doing business with The DOD. For those who don’t know, hundreds of commercial franchises Have operated on military bases for years. This partnership has been a Boon to the non-profit AAFES system. All profits go toward programs such As organized athletic programs for the military and their dependents, exercise Equipment, support for social clubs and the like.

Coming at a time of tighter defense budgets the withdrawal of commercial franchises Is going to put quite a squeeze on the military health and morale programs. Every time a military grunt got a haircut, every time a military wife Got a manicure or hair styling, with every burger or slice of pizza or chicken
Dinner sold, a portion of the profits went to this much needed Program.

Alas, as with all things Obama, every time he does something to please his socialist Friends, someone suffers. In this case it will be our military.
While this will be a serious loss for our stateside troops, the troops who Will be most hurt by this are our troops deployed to remote areas of the world
Where our military folks had little to look forward to but a Burger King Whopper and fries at a small concession that might bring them a little bit of Home to their lives.

This should not surprise me at all but it does.
I should have been prepared For this when Obama eliminated
hot meals for our troops in Afghanistan even as He and Joe Biden
were booking $500,000 per night hotel suites in Paris and London….
or Obama’s total disregard for costs as he and Michelle have run up
Over $600 million dollars in vacation costs during his tenure. Oh well,
I understand the military’s food research facility up in Illinois is
Working on “Pizza in a Pouch” for the new cold ration packs.
“Screw the Grunts” seems to be Obama’s philosophy…even as he and Michelle
host Jay Z And Beyonce at one of those fancy White House dinners.


Breaking: #VAScandal White House OMB Officials KNEW of Veteran Deaths in South Carolina

The following report is the most horrendous and damning VA Inspector General Report I have found.

Report No. 12-04631-313
Healthcare Inspection
Gastroenterology Consult Delays
William Jennings Bryan Dorn
VA Medical Center
Columbia, South Carolina
September 6, 2013

Executive Summary

The VA Office of Inspector General Office of Healthcare Inspections conducted a review to evaluate policies and practices related to gastroenterology (GI) consult and resource management at the William Jennings Bryan (WJB) Dorn VA Medical Center (the facility) in Columbia, SC. The purpose of the review was to determine whether deficient practices contributed to or caused delays in care, and whether facility leaders appropriately addressed clinical managers’ concerns.

We substantiated the allegations and found additional factors that contributed to the events. Veterans Integrated Service Network (VISN) and facility leaders became aware of the GI consult backlog in July 2011 involving 2,500 delayed consults, 700 of them “critical.” A funding request was made at that time and the VISN awarded the facility $1.02M for fee colonoscopies in September 2011. However, facility leaders did not assure that a structure for tracking and accountability was in place and by December, the backlog stood at 3,800 delayed GI consults. The facility developed an action plan in January 2012 but had difficulty making progress in reducing the backlog. An adverse event in May 2012 prompted facility leaders to re-evaluate the GI situation, and facility, VISN, and Veterans Health Administration leaders aggressively pursued elimination of the backlog. This was essentially accomplished by late October 2012. However, during the review “look-back” period, 280 patients were diagnosed with GI malignancies, 52 of which had been associated with a delay in diagnosis and treatment. The facility completed 19 institutional disclosures and 3 second-level reviews are still pending. As of May 2013, nine patients and/or their families had filed lawsuits.

Dick Cheney: Obama Is “Very, Very Weak… The Weakest of My Lifetime” (Video)

Former president Dick Cheney slammed Barack Obama after his foreign policy speech at West Point Wednesday on Hannity.

“I think the perception around the world is increasingly negative. But, I think the main focus in on our president. He’s very, very weak, maybe the weakest certainly in my lifetime. I know from my own experience in a recent trip through the Middle East spending several days talking with folks I’ve dealt with all the way back to Desert Storm, they are all absolutely convinced that the American capacity to lead and influence events in that part of the world has been dramatically reduced by this president.”

The definition of the word Conundrum is: something that is puzzling or confusing.

Here are six Conundrums of socialism in the United States of America:

1. America is capitalist and greedy – yet half of the population is subsidized.

2. Half of the population is subsidized – yet they think they are victims.

3. They think they are victims – yet their representatives run the government.

4. Their representatives run the government – yet the poor keep getting poorer.

5. The poor keep getting poorer – yet they have things that people in
other countries only dream about.

6. They have things that people in other countries only dream about –
yet they want America to be more like those other countries.

Think about it! And that, my friends, pretty much sums up the USA in
the 21st Century.

Makes you wonder who is doing the math.

Thanks Jim

These three, short sentences tell you a lot about the direction of our current government and cultural environment:

1. We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few
lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions
of a few lunatics. Funny how that works.

And here’s another one worth considering…

2. Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run
out of money. How come we never hear about welfare or food stamps
running out of money? What’s interesting is the first group “worked
for” their money, but the second didn’t. Think about it…..

and Last but not least,

3. Why are we cutting benefits for our veterans, no pay raises for our
military and cutting our army to a level lower than before WWII, but
we are not stopping the payments or benefits to illegal aliens.

Am I the only one missing something?

Krauthammer: Obama’s Afghan Announcement ” An Act of Personal Narcissism” (Video)

U.S. President Barack Obama announced plans on Tuesday to leave 9,800 U.S. troops in Afghanistan after the formal troop drawdown at the end of this year, a senior administration official said. Obama says he’ll bring those troops home in 2016 before the election.
Tonight Charles Krauthammer weighed in:

“I think it’s worse than a political act to announce the leave. It’s kind of an act of personal narcissism.”
