We all seem to have our own personal definition of what is progress, what is faith, what is wisdom, and what is tomfoolery! The interesting fact of the matter is, however; what some folks consider wisdom, others count as tomfoolery and faith is absolutely off the charts in debated opinions. Health care in America seems to be in the headlines, continuously. As a person who is clearly an outside observer, I'd like to share the information, simply as a spectator. I will qualify this article with the admission, I have not been a recipient of mainstream medical care since 2001. I tried for several years to use natural and allopathic in a complementary fashion, but mixing the two failed me terribly, so I went purely natural. Here's what I've seen and read in the past 12 months.
There have been no significant improvements in the health care cost and effectiveness in a decade. This article claims Obamacare will bring some improvement. If the website roll out was indication of the potential capability, I'd say improvement in care is not on the foreseeable horizon. The IRS is supposed to be the arm of power and record keeping of this new system. Lois Lerner's situation I believe offers keen insight regarding that plan. Moving right along into the actual chronology of health care in the US.
September 2013, Lois Lerner "retires." October 2013, the website is unveiled. November 2013, a reduction in benefits for Veteran's health care. December 2013, the deadline was moved to March 2014. January 2014, the website is working properly. February 2014, many complain that premiums have increased while coverage has been reduced. March 2014, the deadline is announced and through coercion the numbers goal is reportedly reached. April 2014, US Health Secretary, Kathleen Sebelius resigns after disastrous roll out. May 2014, nothing specific to report, the American public seems to have accepted our lot. Some prepare to pay the penalty, next year. June 2014, Sylvia Mathews Burwell is sworn in as the new Secretary of Health and Human Services. Her bio is fascinating. She oversees 77,000 employees who touch the lives of every American. Full Story Before this appointment, she was Director of the Office of Management and Budget. Prior to her work in this administration, she was President of the Walmart Foundation . . . and before that President of the Global Development Program for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. no dots to connect here, folks . . .
July of 2014, the Health Secretary takes a tour of the CDC in Atlanta. August of 2014, we import a deadly plague.
And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not
of the works of their hands . . . prophecy of the Revelation
