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

Via NRO

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 “truthorfiction.com” and it is true.

http://www.truthorfiction.com/rumors/m/Military-Base-Burger-King.htm

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.”

Where’s The Outrage…..Wake Up America

Like ALL the scandals during Obama’s reign the propaganda arm of the DIMocratic Party will do everything in their power to cover it up every time . From Fast & Furious to the IRS attacking Conservatives, to the deaths of the 4 Americans in Benghazi and more recently to the thousands of our Veterans waiting during, “Delay, Deny, then DIE” before anyone in the VA helps them with their requests….it’s sad and SICK, and after YEARS of abuse no one has been fired or IMPEACHED! Has a “Special Prosecutor” been appointed to see that JUSTICE is served, HELL NO! Obummer just appointed Chuck Hagel, DIMocrat who is a career politician and our Secretary Of Defense ( FOX IN CHARGE OF THE HEN HOUSE ) to take 90 days to find out what’s going on, BUT GUESS WHAT OBUMMER…..we already know what’s going on…All we need our President to do at this time is start FIRING PEOPLE, and Congress you need to begin IMPEACHMENT proceedings and just pick just one of the for mentioned SCANDALS above…….Papa Mike

Remember the Valerie Plame scandal? Yannow, the CIA desk worker who was outed as a spy, which she wasn’t? The Bush administration was blamed for putting her life in danger by outing her. She was a freakin’ desk worker. Almost everyone knew she worked for the CIA. Nevertheless, a special prosecutor was appointed and the DIMocrats were ecstatic. They even made a movie about her. Impeachment was even whispered about. Well guess what the Obungler administration just did?

The White House inadvertently blew the cover of the CIA’s top officer in Kabul during President Obama’s surprise trip to Afghanistan on Sunday.

The name of the spy agency’s station chief in Kabul was included on a list provided to news organizations of senior U.S. officials participating in Mr. Obama’s visit with U.S. troops.

Yep! Obumbler traveled to Afghanistan over the weekend for a photo op where he was able to use the troops stationed there as props to try and look like he cared about our military, which every right thinking person knows is bullshit. Exhibit A: The current VA scandal. Ya wanna see what gummint run healthcare looks like? Look at the VA. Obummer once again mentioned himself more than our fine men and women in uniform. It’s all about him.

The White House provided the list that was sent out in a “pool report” by a reporter traveling with the president to thousands of journalists, including foreign media, who receive the reports.

The White House reportedly recognized the mistake and issued a second, revised list that omitted the official’s name and title. The Washington Times is withholding the name of the CIA officer; it’s not clear whether the exposure will require the person to leave his post.

I dunno. If I were the CIA dude, I would be beating feet out of Afghanistan as fast as I could. Meanwhile, I’ll bet this doesn’t get anywhere near the coverage that the Valerie Plame affair did, even if the dude gets killed as a result. After all, this administration’s incompetence got four people killed in Benghazi and Thunder Rodent Thighs / Hilldabeast Clinton herself said, “What difference does it make …?”

And the LSM propaganda arm of the DIMocratic Party will do everything in their power to cover it up while covering non-scandals like the lane closures on the George Washington Bridge. That’s far more important than four Americans dying in Benghazi or a CIA operative being outed.

Memorial Speech By A Real American

Do you remember when we had presidents who believed in America and the American Dream? Do you remember when we had presidents who loved this country? I do. The Dimocrat Party gave us an American president who was a draft dodger. Now they have given us a president who is a rat bastard commie and a closet Mooslime and who despises the principles this country was founded upon. A president who has changed the mission statement of NASA from space exploration to Mooslime outreach. A president who is destroying our military and who is turning it into a social engineering project. A president who is destroying our economy. A president who will leave this country worse off than when he was elected. A president who doesn’t beieve in individual effort but who does believe in dependence upon gummint and the expansion of the welfare state. A president who is married to an angry racist woman who hates white people. A president who has turned his back on the 4 deaths of Americans in Benghazi. A president who allowed his Attorney General to call all white people RACISITS and lied about Fast & Furious . A president who has done NOTHING about the IRS scandal. A president who has done NOTHING, but talk about the recent treatment of our service men and women by the VA….The list is just too long to list……..Papa Mike & The Grouchy Old Cripple

Listen to this speech by a patriotic man who loved his country and who believed in its greatness and the greatness of the American people who built the most powerful and prosperous nation in the history of this planet.

Finally… Barack Obama Admits Al-Qaeda Is Evolving and Poses a Serious Threat

Back before the 2012 election Barack Obama said Al-Qaeda was defeated and on the run.

 

But, that was during an election year.

Today, Al-Qaeda is on the run and holding parades.

Al-Qaeda members hold a parade recently in Syria.

Yesterday, at Bagram Air Force base, Obama finally admitted that Al-Qaeda affiliates are evolving and are not so much defeated and on the run.

So our combat mission here will come to an end. But our obligations to you and your families have only just begun. The al Qaeda leadership may be on the ropes, but in other regions of the world al Qaeda affiliates are evolving and pose a serious threat. We’re going to have to stay strong and we’re going to have to stay vigilant.

Father of UCSB Shooting Victim Rails Against NRA & Calls for More Gun Laws …(Nothing About Knives) -Video

Father of UCSB Shooting Victim Rails Against NRA & Calls for More Gun Laws …(Nothing About Knives) -Video
Posted by Jim Hoft on Sunday, May 25, 2014, 10:30 AM
On Friday 22 year-old Elliot Rodger stabbed three men to death in his apartment, stabbing each repeatedly with a sharp object. Then he drove his black BMW to Alpha Phi sorority and shot three young women, killing two. Rodger then drove past a deli mart and killed another male student before taking his life.

On Saturday Richard Martinez the father of shooting victim Christopher Ross Michaels-Martinez railed against the NRA and called for more gun laws.

“Why did Chris die? Chris died because of craven irresponsible politicians and the NRA. They talk about gun rights? What about Chris’s right to live?”

Martinez said nothing about the knifing victims.
The AP reported, via Free Republic:

A man whose son was among the victims killed in a shooting rampage near a California university quaked with grief and rage Saturday as he described his “lost and broken” family and the proliferation of guns he believes led to his son’s death.

“Our son Christopher and six others are dead,” Richard Martinez told reporters gathered outside a sheriff’s station for a news conference the day after the shootings near the University of California, Santa Barbara, where the 20-year-old son was a sophomore. “You don’t think it’ll happen to your child until it does.”

Christopher Ross Michaels-Martinez, of Los Osos, Calif., was the last of six people killed by suspect Elliot Rodger before the gunman apparently shot and killed himself, authorities said.

Martinez choked back tears as he spoke, then grew angrier as he talked about gun laws and lobbyists.

“The talk about gun rights. What about Chris’ right to live?” Martinez said. “When will enough people say: ‘Stop this madness! We don’t have to live like this! Too many people have died!”

He then punctuated his words as he said, “We should say to ourselves: ‘Not! One! More!’” before dissolving into tears and falling to his knees as he stepped from the podium.

Network News Devotes More Time To Christie’s “Bridgegate” Non-Scandal In Four Days Than To The VA Scandal In An Entire Month…

Total time ABC devoted to the VA scandal . . . 16 minutes.

 

image

Via Newsbusters:

In nearly four and a half weeks, the ABC, CBS and NBC morning and evening news shows have offered 110 minutes to an evolving Obama administration scandal involving secret lists designed to keep veterans from receiving proper medical treatment. Back in January, it took those same network shows just four and a half days to churn that much coverage for Chris Christie’s Bridgegate.

Since the VA story broke on April 23 with the news that as many as 40 veterans seeking treatment at one Phoenix facility died while on secret waiting lists, CBS has provided the most coverage, 48 minutes and 46 seconds. NBC allowed 44 minutes and 53 seconds and ABC came in last with a scant 16 minutes and 44 seconds. None of the networks bothered covering the story until May 6, almost two weeks after it broke. (This is despite heavy investigative reporting by Fox News and CNN.)

Why the VA Scandal Is Good for DIMocrats.

Don’t blame government — blame the rich.

By Paul Kengor – 5.22.14

Conservatives are touting the VA scandal as evidence of what happens with government healthcare and, by extension, what we can expect with more government healthcare thanks to Obama-care. They point to the VA fiasco as a microcosm of what Americans can anticipate en masse as “progressives” fundamentally transform healthcare and the nation.

Of course, they’re exactly right. No question. But what they’re missing is how this same insanity is a microcosm of what the left intends, how the left will operate, and precisely where we’re headed as a country. The VA scandal bodes well for the left’s grand designs. How so?

The liberal left, the “progressive” left, the socialist left, the communist left, and whatever other left, will employ the VA scandal as a case study of what happens not when government takes over and destroys healthcare but of what happens when government healthcare is not adequately funded. The problem, leftists will insist, is not government centralization, management, and planning, but the failure of cruel and miserly Republicans to fully fund what needs to be funded.

US Hero Waited 20 Hrs. on Benghazi Rooftop While Obama Called YouTube Then Went Campaigning

US Hero David Ubben Suffered 20 Hours in Benghazi Before Help Arrived – While Obama Called YouTube & Went to Campaign in Las Vegas

Diplomatic security agent David Ubben, like former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, ran into the Special Mission Compound (SMC) to help save US officials under siege in Benghazi. Ubben was struck by a mortar round that killed Woods and Doherty. His leg was shredded. Ubben was forced to wait twenty hours before a plane was sent to pick him up.

While Ubben was waiting for help with a shredded leg the Obama White House called YouTube and the president flew off to campaign in Las Vegas.

After a good night sleep Obama flew to Las Vegas to campaign on September 12, 2012. (Zimbio)

Martha MacCullan at FOX News reported on this unbelievable story:

 

 

 

“David Ubben waited for twenty hours after he was hit on that rooftop with Tyrone Woods and Glenn Doherty. His leg was shredded. We know that he has been recovering for ten months at Walter Reed as Catherine has just reported. He was defending the US consulate and then no medical aircraft was apparently sent to this scene to get him out of there. How could this be?”

What a sad chapter in American history.
