Survive ObamaCare
A Simple 2-Step Survival Strategy To Keep The People In DC From Harming You Further.
The Sooner You Start, The Better.
TWO PROBLEMS
1. The stated and foundational goal of ObamaCare is to cut health care costs. This is impossible according to the legislation. We have been told a lie. (Really, many lies.)

The reason is absolutely clear. If you add 30 million people to the system, the costs of repairing them will also be added to the system. Thus, the total costs will increase unless the system pays for fewer repairs or pays repairpersons less.

For more explanation, see here and here.

There is a net result. There will be less/worse care for most people or higher costs or both.

These are unavoidable certainties, despite what you have been told.


2. ObamaCare is an effort that will clearly dissuade the population from doing what it takes to prevent illness and dependence on the Feds.

It is particularly pernicious in its treatment of older persons. Making preparations to avoid these consequences should begin now no matter your age.

The legislation is intended to create dependency of the elderly on the system and to prevent older members of society from being independent. It also intends to collect revenue which may be used to pay for things other than CLASS Act (see below) needs as the Feds have done with Medicare funds and will apparently need to do again.

The following is from here:

The health reform legislation passed in the House Sunday contains numerous provisions related to long-term care.

One of these provisions is the Community Living Assistance Services and Support (CLASS) Act, which was originally introduced by the late Senator Edward Kennedy. The CLASS Act will make long-term care insurance available to all Americans, who will be automatically enrolled with the choice to opt out.

Individuals will begin paying a premium immediately and, after five years, those with functional limitations have the option of receiving a cash benefit of around $50 a day that can be used to offset the cost of long-term care services.

"The CLASS Act will help offset the high cost of long-term care services for aging and disabled populations. In particular, these funds will allow individuals flexibility to receive services in their homes and potentially prevent admissions to nursing homes," says Katherine McCarthy, business account manager at PointRight in Lexington, MA. "The overarching goal of healthcare reform is to make healthcare both more accessible and affordable in the U.S. Long-term care expenses, particularly in aging populations, are among the most costly to Medicare and Medicaid today.

The plan is to keep older persons and the disabled at the mercy of "cheap" and under-funded government-provided care by restricting access to skilled nursing facilities.

What is most apparent, is the intention of the government to allow disabilities and infirmities instead of preventing them from occurring in the first place.

Whether this is payback to SEIU or not is not the point of primary interest.

That it is in the worst interests of the population is.

Protecting one's self from developing chronic illnesses and dependence is what's important.

 

 

 

 

 

TWO SOLUTIONS
1. Repeal of the legislation or refusal to fund the reforms are effective means to solving the matter. However, they are out of an individual's direct control. You must elect representatives who are committed to these strategies.

What is needed is a direct means for individuals to control sick care costs.

There is only one best way to do this - to do what it takes to lessen the likelihood of developing illnesses.

Given current knowledge, if there were one thing and one thing only that a person could do to lessen their likelihood of developing certain bad and expensive illnesses, it would be to achieve a Body Mass Index (BMI) of between 18.5 and 24.9.

For most people this means losing weight. If you can do it on your own, great. If not, go here and learn how.


2. There are ways to remain fit, "healthier," and independent as one ages, i.e., advances past the age of around 40.

But you have to start protecting yourself as early as possible.

Read on.

The effects of time that most affect independence, which is a reflection of functional ability, are:

loss of lean muscle mass and strength

fractures (these are related to loss of strength and muscle)

cognitive dysfunctions

illnesses (e.g., cancer, cardiovascular diseases, stroke, etc.)


Among the leading causes of illness, disability and death are:

Cardiovascular Diseases:

Angina Pectoris

Congestive Heart Failure

Coronary Heart Disease

Hypertension (high blood pressure)

Myocardial Infarction (Heart Attack)

Stroke

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease 

Cognitive Disorders:

Including Alzheimer Disease

Mental Disorders:

Depression

Type 2 Diabetes

Osteoporosis

Sarcopenia


In essence, a means is needed to lessen the likelihood of developing these certain bad illnesses that rob the aging of their independence.

Add to this the fact that number one abusers of the aging are their caregivers, including family members, and the motivation to remain independent should be acute.

There is such a means.

It is inexpensive relative to other approaches.

It is safer than other approaches.

It has proven to be more effective than other approaches.

What is this means?

Anabolic substances (AS).

These substances have been shown to improve the functioning of the heart, restore lost bone, strengthen muscle, elevate mood, improve lung function, help Type 2 diabetes, improve cognitive function and cause the amount of fat on the body to lessen.

The current Vice President, Joe Biden, was instrumental in raining harm on the citizens of the USA. It was his efforts in passing the Steroid Trafficking Act and his authorship of the Anabolic Steroid Control Act that so badly hurt the public.

He, more than just about anyone else, was responsible for making AS almost impossible for patients to obtain practically and reasonably.

To find out how you can legally obtain AS and start helping yourself avoid the ravages ObamaCare (and other diseases), go here and here.

It is your life - act to protect it.

No one else will.
