The Obama reelection campaign is desperately attempting to push the lie that the Paul Ryan Social Security reorganization plan amounts to Paul Ryan pushing Grandma off a cliff in her wheel chair. Funny thing happened on the way to this bullshit meme though, the majority of senior citizens refused to buy it. Meanwhile, back in reality the infamous words of Nancy Pelosi have just reared their ugly head… And it looks like they have bitten the wicked witch of the West’s head off and Barack Obama’s ass off.
Which infamous words could I possibly be referring to? Well, that would be Nancy Pelosi’s statement that we would have to pass Obamacare to find out what was in it. As Gomer Pyle would have said, Surprise surprise surprise, we just found out what was in it. Read this very carefully, as the Democrats have told us on so many occasions, words do after all have meanings.
A provision of ObamaCare is set to punish roughly two-thirds of U.S. hospitals starting this fall over high readmission rates, according to an analysis by Kaiser Health News.
Starting in October, Medicare will reduce reimbursements to hospitals with high 30-day readmission rates — which refers to patients who return within a month — by as much as 1 percent. The maximum penalty increases to 2 percent the following year and 3 percent in 2014.
Doctors are concerned the penalty is unfair, since sometimes they have to accept patients more than once in a brief period of time but could be penalized for doing so — even for accepting seniors who are sick.
“Among patients with heart failure, hospitals that have higher readmission rates actually have lower mortality rates,” said Sunil Kripalani, MD, a professor with Vanderbilt University Medical Center who studies hospital readmissions. “So, which would we rather have — a hospital readmission or a death?“
The Fifth Column Treasonous Media (may they die in a horribly painful fire and then burn in hell for eternity) excoriated Vice Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin for her “Death Panels” comment, which, as it just so happened, turned out to be a correct and accurate description of the actuary panels mandated in Obamacare.
Did any of those intrepid Joesph Goebbels School of Propaganda troglodytes actually read the Oamacare bill before pronouncing it the savior of mankind? Will any of them report on the indisputable fact that it is in reality (and not metaphorically) Obamacare that is mandated by law to push grandma over a cliff in her wheel chair?
