For the third consecutive year, a majority of Americans, 52%, say it is not the government's responsibility to make sure all Americans have healthcare. Prior to 2009, a majority of Americans took the opposite view.
What is truly disturbing is the fact that our government is willing to engage in the purposeful deception of the populace in order to thrust its secretive agenda onto an unsuspecting populace and a sycophantic mainstream media. As I have said many times before, Obamacare was never about health care; it was about government control and wealth redistribution. If there was real concern about the uninsured, it would have been much cheaper and considerably less complex to simply give all of the uninsured Cadillac health plans for life. I am a firm believer that health care reform was and is needed, and I have been advocating for it for several years. It needs to be done correctly, though, and in a way that does not create different levels of access and treatment.
CORALVILLE COURIER EDITOR'S NOTE: You're not seeing this story in the Iowa City DePressed Citizen or The Gazette. The architect of ObamaCare lied, Obama lied to the American people, as did Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Dave Loebsack and Bruce Braley, and they KNEW what they were telling people wasn't the truth! Obamacare is based in lies. You were intentionally mislead.
Washington (CNN) -- As Congress voted on the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, in 2010, one of the bill's architects, MIT economist Jonathan Gruber, told a college audience that those pushing the legislation pitched it as a bill that would control spiraling health care costs even though most of the bill was focused on something else and there was no guarantee the bill would actually bend the cost curve.
Although anyone can get the flu, the most vulnerable groups are young children under the age of 2, the over-60s and people who are already ill with another condition.
For their review, the researchers only included case-control studies of "test-negative design." These have emerged in recent years as the preferred method for assessing the effectiveness of flu vaccines because they are thought to rule out bias due to misclassification of infection and confounding by health care-seeking behavior.
Meet Jonathan Gruber, a professor at MIT and an architect of Obamacare. During a panel event last year about how the legislation passed, turning over a sixth of the U.S. economy to the government, Gruber admitted that the Obama administration went through "tortuous" measures to keep the facts about the legislation from the American people, including covering up the redistribution of wealth from the healthy to the sick in the legislation that Obamacare is in fact a tax. The video of his comments just recently surfaced ahead of the second open enrollment period for Obamacare at Healthcare.gov.
