STAND WITH SENATORS TED CRUZ AND MIKE LEE

This week an important showdown is taking place in Washington, DC over Obamacare. The fight is between those elected officials who stand with Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee and are serious about dismantling Obamacare, vs. the “status quo” Ruling Elite who are helping to prop up Obamacare and advance its implementation.

Obamacare is based on the flawed premise that the government should run our nation’s health care system and that it has the right to dictate all aspects of our health care decision-making.  We don’t think so!  Please watch the following video from the office of Senator Ted Cruz.

The Senate is currently debating the bipartisan House-passed bill to defund Obamacare and fully fund the government. The Senate should pass it. As early as tomorrow, there will be a final cloture vote to cut off debate, which would allow Senator Harry Reid to add Obamacare funding back into the House bill. Senators Cruz and Lee will oppose final cloture to protect the House bill and keep debate going.
The American people are rising up and making their voices heard in Congress.
It is time for Washington politicians from both parties to listen to the American people.

Please participate by calling your Senators and making your voices heard.  Tell them to vote NO on cloture and keep the conversation going in the senate.

Here is a list of all Senators and their contact info and how they stand on cloture. REMEMBER if they vote YES for cloture they will be voting to give Senator Harry Reid the opportunity to insert language to fund Obamacare into the Continuing Resolution Bill that was sent to the Senate from the House of Representatives. The House sent the Bill over to the Senate with every part of our government being funded except Obamacare.  Every Republican should vote NO on cloture.

Are You Paying Attention? HHS Says Every American Must Have Electronic Health Records By 2014!

God help us!!  This means that the government will have access to any health record it wants for any reason it may have.  Who’s going to stop them?  Obamacare will be enforced with the power of the IRS! Government will have complete control over our lives.  No, we can’t wait until 2012 to get rid of Obama – we have to start in 2010.   As I said, “God Help Us”

CNSNews.com is reporting this:

New Regulations Outline Content, Transmission Standards for Every Americans’ Electronic Health Records

Friday, July 16, 2010
By Matt Cover, Staff Writer

(CNSNews.com) – New regulations issued by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) on Tuesday outline federal standards for the electronic health records that every American must have by 2014.

The regulations, developed by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology and issued by HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, are the first concrete step for the government as it pursues the goal – first outlined in the 2009 economic stimulus law – of making all health care providers use the electronic record systems by 2014.

If doctors or hospitals do not comply and insist on using the traditional paper record-keeping systems, the federal government will penalize them by docking their Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements, making it harder for them to stay in business.

If doctors or hospitals do not comply and insist on using the traditional paper record-keeping systems, the federal government will penalize them by docking their Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements, making it harder for them to stay in business.

If they choose to comply with the government’s plan, doctors and hospitals can receive generous federal subsidies – as much as $64,000 per doctor and millions of dollars for hospitals – as an incentive for installing the systems.

According to Michael Tanner, a senior fellow and health care reform expert at the free-market Cato Institute, “just 17 percent of U.S. physicians are currently using electronic medical records for their patients,” and for hospitals, “just 9.1 percent have even a basic system, and just 1.5 percent have a comprehensive system.”

Where the electronic record systems do exist, moreover, they are often incompatible among many hospitals and physicians. “The unavailability and incompatibility of electronic medical records contributes to the unnecessary deaths of up to 8,000 people each year because of medication errors,” reported Tanner in a 2009 report

The new regulations unveiled this week spell out what the government considers a “complete” electronic health record (EHR) and what it considers “meaningful use” of such records. To comply with federal requirements, doctors and hospitals must make meaningful use of qualified EHR systems.

Under the new regulations, a complete EHR must be able to perform 25 distinct functions relating to what information can be entered into the record and how that record can be shared with other health care providers and, in some cases, the federal government.

The EHRs are designed to be digital replications of the hard-copy, paper health records commonly in use today. They are also engineered to be easily transferable among different doctors and hospitals so as to eliminate the creation of duplicate or disparate records among different health care providers, thus allowing any health care office to access a patient’s complete medical record at each visit.

Among the content required for a complete EHR is an active medications list, vital signs, Body Mass Index (BMI) score, smoking status, comparative effectiveness data, lab test results, and insurance status. They must also record race, gender, and preferred language of patients, as well as send reminders to patients about follow-up visits and at-home care where applicable.

A complete EHR must also include a list of all past health problems, their causes, and the procedures used to treat or cure them.

The HHS envisions three stages of EHR use over time, with each stage further incorporating EHRs into the practice of medicine by 2014. The new regulations leave stages two and three undefined while the technology develops.

During stage one, EHR systems must demonstrate basic capabilities, such as transmitting public health data, checking for drug interactions, and maintaining an up-to-date list of illnesses, procedures, and treatments for 80 percent of patients.

The EHRs must also allow doctors to electronically prescribe medications as well as maintain an active list of medications taken by each patient, checking for both drug and allergic reactions for each medication.

To meet the meaningful use requirement in stage one, providers must meet at least 20 of the 25 total criteria.

They must also be portable and easily transferable between providers, in both walk-in and inpatient settings. The regulations state that records must be electronically transmittable between health care providers and emergency personnel.

However, as a CMS spokesman told CNSNews.com, due to technology infrastructure limitations, the EHRs will not have to be fully transmissible in stage one.

“Recognizing that the infrastructure for health information exchange varies across the country, the rule does not require this [transmissibility] in stage one,” said the spokesman in an e-mail.  “The rule only requires one test of this capability, not continual use.”

The EHRs must also be encrypted and they must be sent over encrypted Internet connections. Access to EHRs must be tightly controlled and the EHR systems must record and save the identity information of each person who accesses the record, what information they accessed, and when they accessed the record.

The EHR systems must also record each time an EHR is updated, who updated it, and what portions of the EHR were changed. The EHR system must also be able to check for and alert providers if records are changed in any way during transmission.

An EHR system must also be able to provide individual patients with an electronic copy of his or her medical record within three business days, if the patient requests it.

From ‘Ahab The Arab’ – To – ‘Come To The USA’

Ray Stevens has a song that is creating a buzz around the internet these days.  It’s called Come To The USA. Stevens is concerned about the chipping away of America’s liberties and the poor decisions being made by our politicians. He supports Arizona’s illegal immigration law SB 1070 and commends Gov. Jan Brewer.

While he supports LEGAL immigration, he is flat-out against ILLEGAL immigration.

Listen closely to the different immigration laws of other countries that Ray sings about in Come To The USA

and before he wrote Come To The USA , he penned this little gem called We The People.  He lists every single complaint we  the people have with this administration.  Also noteworthy – he avoids saying the A _ _ word that our unpresidential president is using these days to try to show toughness.

and before that he gave us this timely piece, Throw The Bums Out

and a few years back he wrote this classic, Everything Is Beautiful

but the Ray Stevens song that really stands out to me is, Ahab The Arab.  This was written all the way back in the day in 1962 when America was still America, problems and all, but AMERICA. If he tried to write this song today, he would have trouble with the PC police and the present administration. So, we can see why he writes the songs he’s writing today.

here’s Ahab The Arab

God Bless America

STUPAK IS AS STUPAK DOES – BYE!

Well, at least Bart Stupak can read the writing on the wall.  He is leaving his Congressional seat before he is shown the door by the Michigan voters.  FOX News reports >>>

Rep. Bart Stupak Announces His Retirement After Health Care Controversy

Michigan Democratic Rep. Bart Stupak, the central player in a grueling abortion debate underlying the health care law, announced Friday he will retire from Congress at the end of this term, because “it’s time to begin a new and exciting chapter.”

Flanked by his wife and other supporters, Stupak said he made the decision within the last 36 hours not to seek a 10th term and he is choosing to step down because he thinks he has achieved his goal of universal health care.

“When I first ran for Congress in 1992, I campaigned on a pledge to make affordable, quality health care a right, not a privilege, for all Americans. I promised the people of the First District that I would not accept the insurance that Members of Congress receive — the Federal Employees Health Benefit Package — until all Americans could have access to that same quality of care. For the last 18 years, I have kept that promise, he said at a press conference in Marquette, Mich.

Last month, we finally accomplished what I set out to do 18 years ago — we passed comprehensive national health care reform,” Stupak said.(read more)

SO THE ANOINTED ONE WAS REALLY AN ANOINTED SLACKER

This is posted on Gateway Pundit >>

Said a University of Chicago Law Professor about Barack Obama:

“He Was Hated By The Professors Because He Was Lazy, Unqualified and Never Attended Faculty Meetings”

The highest tenured faculty member at Chicago Law spoke out on Barack Obama saying, “Professors hated him because he was lazy, unqualified, never attended any of the faculty meetings.”
Doug Ross
reported this and more:

I spent some time with the highest tenured faculty member at Chicago Law a few months back, and he did not have many nice things to say about Barry, “Obama applied for a position as an adjunct and wasn’t even considered. A few weeks later the law school got a phone call from the Board of Trustees telling them to find him an office, put him on the payroll, and give him a class to teach. The Board told him he didn’t have to be a member of the faculty, but they needed to give him a temporary position. He was never a professor and was hardly an adjunct”.

The other professors hated him because he was lazy, unqualified, never attended any of the faculty meetings, and it was clear that the position was nothing more than a political stepping stool.

According to my professor friend, he had the lowest intellectual capacity in the building. He also doubted whether he was legitimately an editor on the Harvard Law Review, because if he was, he would be the first and only editor of an Ivy League law review to never be published while in school (publication is or was a requirement).

This photo of Barack Obama teaching in Chicago was posted in February 2008 at PrestoPundit. In this class Barack Obama was teaching his students the principles of Saul Alinsky. Notice the flow chart indicating the flow of money and power out of productive businesses (“CORP”) and into the political class (“MAYOR”):

The heading at the top reads “POWER ANALYSIS”. The sub-heading reads “RELATIONSHIPS BUILD ON SELF INTEREST”. The symbol on the arrow between “CORP” and “MAYOR” is the “$” sign.

Saul Alinsky came up with the idea of power analysis, which looks at relationships built on self-interest between corporations, banks and utilities. Barack Obama was teaching students in Chicago the Alinsky Principles.

Is anyone surprised?  Unfortunately, this description of Barack Obama has followed him all the way to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue!  He is still lazy and definitely unqualified.  We have a ‘slacker president’.  After watching the bribes, kickbacks, lies and threats this past year as Democrats fought to take over the health care industry, it’s obvious that the only subject Obama excels at is Alinsky’s Rules For Radicals.
