US Not Ready for Rationed Healthcare

The hurricanes Irma and Maria and the massacre in Las Vegas have spun the U.S. into chaos far beyond the anti-Trump rampages by the Democrats and the main-stream news media.

No matter what President Trump says or does, the Democrats and their lackey "news" reporters and commentators will find fault. Trump is accused of being a bigot, racist, imperialist, fascist, warmonger. The name-calling goes on ad infinitum.

Quietly, Trump is changing federal government rules and regulations and is unraveling the Obama adminstraton's immigration mess.

In August and September of  this year, the attempted illegal border crossings on the southern border increased. The American unemployment numbers are declining and wages are rising. This means more illegal entries coming to America. Money and entitlements motivate foreign nationals to come to the United States. Money and entitlements mean more illegal aliens.

Unreported in the mainstream media are the healthcare, education, and housing  entitlements illegal aliens received during the Obama years.

The costs to U.S. taxpayers are never reported.

Illegal aliens claim they are entitled to healthcare, education, housing, and welfare "rights." In protests in legislatures, courthouses, and streets illegal aliens demand the rights of citizens.

Pictures of such protests show signs and placards demanding and declaring, "Human Rights for All," "No Person is Illegal," "USA Owes it to Us," or "Get Over It — We are Here!"

On Oct. 7, 2017  the World Bank estimated Mexicans in America send appoximately $30.5 billion a year back to Mexico and 6.5 percent higher than remitted in 2016. The August, 2017 unemployment rate for foreign-born population was 4.2 percent and 4.6 percent for native-born Americans. The World Banks’s report was ignored by the media. 

The Democratic legislative bill, Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) aka Obamacare passed without one Republican vote. Since its enactment, the ACA has caused yearly premium increases — many of them in the double-digits, raised deductibles, withdrawal of doctors, uncertain coverage, and no reduction in family medical costs as promised by President Obama. Additonally, it has caused the actual inclusion of illegal aliens using Obamacare.

Adding to the chaos in the country is the uncertain number of illegal aliens presently in the country. The Democrats and open-borders advocates repeat ad nauseum the number of million illegal aliens in America — 11. That number is wrong.

For a decade, Democrats and the newsmedia have purposely used this number to deceive Americans citizens.

It is mathematically and actually impossible for the number of illegal aliens in America to be static for 10 years. Deaths, deportations — self or governmental — daily illegal entries, and change of immigration status makes the number of 11 million illegal aliens false. Best estimates are that more than 25 million illegal aliens are now in America — border crossers and visa overstays.

Although the ACA prohibits illegal aliens from using Obamacare, except for emergency medical care, illegal aliens are receiving Obamacare services with chaos reigning in federal agencies. Holdover Obama bureaucrats stoke the chaos by permitting illegal aliens to register for services.

Federally Qualified Community Health Centers (FQCHs) and Migrant Health Centers (MHCs) are front-line health providers for illegal aliens with no questions about citizenship.

Articles in The Wall Street Journal, Lifezette, and Forbes Magazine enumerate Obamacare failures.

There are no certain dollar figures for illegal alien healthcare, just as there is no accurate count of illegal aliens. A national guesstimate, for the fiscal year 2017, is that illegal alien costs for healthcare in the U.S. was about $110 billion. California, alone, spent an estimated $30.29 billion or $7,352 per alien for health care.

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.,  introduced "Medicare of All" bill on Sept. 23, 2017 that would give the Federal government control of the medical system of America. Not mentioned, but accepted by Democrats, was the inclusion of illegal aliens in the bill. Called a single payer plan, "Sanderscare" would be socialized medicine like England. He had at least 5 Democratic senator co-sponsors.

The UK's Daily Mail of Sept. 30, 2017 featured an article detailing socialized medicine's failure in England.

The piece began, "Britain’s hard-pressed middle class is being forced to plunder savings and rack up huge debts to pay for . . . vital operations that NHS (National Health Service) hospitals are struggling to perform."

For decades, England’s lack of doctors caused long waiting periods for needed medical services. Some waits have been for up to 12 months.

Rationing of medical services is a major component of England's NHS. Reasons for surgery, minor or major, must be established with pain and possibility of death the only two factors to be considered.

Thus, people with life or death surgery needs have to go to "pay as you go" private physicians, and only if they can afford to do so.

"Sanderscare" will mean the same problems for America, except for the rich and entitled like Sen. Sanders.
