What is a physician

What is a Physician


Physicians are a group of people who dedicate themselves to care for the injured, diseased and or those in the transitions of life. Revered by most cultures these healers partake in prolonged, extensive and grueling training to be called the title they become. Major shifts in technology, pharmaceutical sciences and government intervention have metamorphosed the role expected of medical doctors. In recent times physicians moved from managing a patient’s problem to being managed themselves. Fear of sanction and loss of income from a variety of sources has turned this profession into a mere utility controlled by a massive bureaucracy. As a result the glamour and prestige of the practitioner has evaporated leaving vestiges of a career many sought yet few could obtain. Preparation takes a minimum of 11 years before one can enter the realm of practice. In some specialties 14 years or more are required before the student is able to rise above that title. When let loose on society the newly minted physician must face an array of challenges not considered on the very first day of medical school. Medical boards, with twisted agendas, to keep the newly stamped licensee in line will bring much sorry to those who transgress these politically motivated administrative authorities. Lawyers will target them indiscriminately to move up the food chain leaving an indelible mark during the process. Long hours, extreme patient demands, onerous regulatory structure and a system at war with the practitioner await those who dare step into the medical arena. In 2014 it is projected that 300 physicians will commit suicide. Depression, driven by factors enumerated in this text, has brought these physicians to the brink. Thousands of physicians have bailed on the profession to safer harbors, more will follow as Obamacare is fully implemented. With the incipience of the Patient Protection and Affordability Care Act, in March of 2010, physicians and other health care workers became indentured servants to a massive body of regulations that re-fabricated the medical industry. To answer ‘what is a physician’ one must review the transitions now occurring throughout the system. This person is a shadow of his colleagues from decades past who lost individuality to groupthink and is a puppet of his taskmasters.

Obamacare: A Legacy Unraveling

Obamacare: a legacy unraveling


While the majority of the population slept our misdirected government engineered major changes to their legacy legislative effort, Obamacare. Most startling of the alterations, many will be able to keep their traditional plans intact deep into 2017. Thirty other changes, through Executive edicts, have been implemented to make this egregious law more palatable to voters in 2014 and  subsequently for the presidential election in 2016. Driven by political considerations candidates running for Democrat seats in the House and Senate are running away from this catastrophe in evolution. Many ardent supporters of Obama are having second thoughts concerning his agenda, as the President tweaks the legal nightmare he has inflicted on the nation. Dozens of mandates have been modified, extended and or simply circumvented to keep the Affordable Care Act afloat. Insufficient numbers of paying subscribers have signed up in the Exchanges. Reportedly four million have enrolled. Those in the know question the mix of this group. White House officials are mum whether these new Exchange patrons have been moved off Medical Assistance to this newest of subsidized programs. This leaves a small window of possibility that a few paying customers joined. Many are asking the question whether the Affordable Care Act is on life support. Omens of failure are omnipresent. Insurance premium nightmares are being reported throughout the country, rising by as much as 100%.  Those who have not lost their jobs are seeing their hours cut by 25% or more. Clever means have been purported to deny patrons of this disaster the very elements advertised by the President and his minions. Obamacare was never about improving health care in America. Instead it was designed to usurp one-sixth of the economy and create a unitary payer system with the central core controlled by the Washington D.C.  bureaucracy. Confusion has been introduced into the health system, at every level, which completely defeats its endgame, better medical care for all.  Affordable care Act has been found to be not so affordable. From the perches of many Obamacare is unraveling and could sink under its own weight. In subsequent articles the dangers of Obamacare will be discussed.

Phase Two; the Obamacare nightmare continues

Phase Two: the Obamacare nightmare continues


Derelict in their duties implementing phase one of Obamacare, the Exchanges, phase two will be a nightmare for those trying to bring this legislation into reality. Based on a series of fraudulent algorithms and guided by the legal elites in Washington the steps to failure are written into every page of this egregious Ponzi scheme. Three years was not enough time to establish the portals to access PPACA’s promises, then thirty years will not be sufficient to build the supporting structures and bureaucracy to manage its medical services. Complexity of America’s health care system is best represented by the number of facilities and people who support their function. With nearly six thousand hospitals, thousands of clinics and tens of thousands of physician offices to oversee the numbers only get worse when factoring in the people delivering services through these sites. Nine hundred thousand physicians, three million nurses, millions of auxillary personnel and an array of other health professionals combine to create an untenable situation for any government agency to manage. Yet this is the task Obamacare  has set-out for itself. To control costs one must pare down services, no doubt this was a primary consideration when this mess was originally envisioned. Under the traditional system MRIs and CT scans are available in hours to days, not anymore. Reflecting on the Canadian system, weeks to months will become the norm. Routine surgeries are not routine anymore. A vast array of bureaucrats will allow the privileged few into the operating suites. Bogus medical studies have already emerged, from quasi government panels, to dissuade physicians from performing certain lab tests, surgeries and procedures. Many have already been published, more are on the way. Mammograms were one of the first tests government officials attacked for overuse.  PSA testing, to determine prostate cancer, has been challenged by physicians outside this specialty working in Obama’s corner.  The parade of changes coming to traditional medicine will be alarming to the end-user, the patient, as Obamacare is fully implemented. Irony has a way of uncovering deception. Those who pushed this legislation through will be hammered by the same rules which will limit medical care for others. Phase 2 is the treacherous road ahead as the promise of more care becomes less in the face of skyrocketing costs and diminished access. The nightmare is just beginning, are you ready.

Obamacare: Dead on Arrival, A Prescription For Disaster


Obamacare is the most complex legislation ever to emanate from the Halls of Congress. Incomprehensible by mere mortals, no one with an IQ under 200 was supposed to understand its 2,700 pages of legislative rot. To explain the latter thousands of additional pages of regulatory nonsense will be required. Trillions not billions are the projected costs to bring this beast to fruition. More importantly will be the human costs to each of us as access to health services is restricted. Obamacare was a no go from its inception. This legislation, by its very nature, cannot be fully implemented. By the time it is castoff by future politicians, the damage caused by its far-reaching tentacles may not be repairable. Obamacare: Dead on Arrival, A Prescription For Disaster is a book written to project how this horrendous program could affect your health. Many examples are given displaying how lack of services dooms the most vulnerable amongst us to an early grave. Insufficient ambulance services, deficits in the most important pharmaceuticals, scarcities of medical specialists, long waits for surgical and radiologic services, extremely over-crowed emergency rooms and an array of other health care deficits will be the legacy of this ill-conceived legislation. Obamacare: Dead on Arrival, A Prescription For Disaster moves passed the financial costs and tells the story how medical care delivery will be constrained. Biologic value will be used to assess the level of care dealt out from an overreaching bureaucracy that has no heart and is after yours. This book is in final preparations and its release is set for May 2013. With a very unique book cover surrounding its contents, Obamacare: Dead on Arrival, A Prescription For Disaster will be easily recognizable on the net or at your local book vender.
