Medicaid enrollees now represent 21% of the entire US population. The Census Bureau estimates the US poverty rate at roughly 11%. That would indicate that 10% of the US population is on the Medicaid Program paying nothing for a service they are not eligible to receive – roughly 35 million people, according to a study out of UC Davis.
As of 2016, the average cost of healthcare per person in the US surpassed $10,000 annually. That would transpose to 35 million people getting the benefits of $10,000 in healthcare for a total spending of $350,000,000,000. Who is paying? You and I. These costs contribute to the untenable healthcare crisis in the US that is described as Socialist medicine.
Medicare was created in 1966. Within four years the cost of healthcare immediately began to accelerate, rising 800% over the next 40 years. As a result, Medicare revenue generated from an employee’s payroll now covers roughly 1/3 of the cost. The rest is ‘deficit spending’. Today there are roughly 30 active doctors per 10,000 patients. In 1965 there were roughly 15 active doctors per 10,000 patients, meaning we doubled the number of doctors.
Therefore, the argument that the cost of healthcare is directly attributable to the scarcity of supply of doctors – would on the surface appear – false.
Medicaid was created simultaneously to provide healthcare to those who had need but no resources. Medicaid is fully funded by US taxpayers through the Federal government – it is universal healthcare – however, those it serves pay $-0- into the system. ‘Legally’ a legal immigrant may not collect on Medicaid until they have been a resident for five years. However, in reality, Medicaid is one of the most corrupt, fraudulent organizations within the US government’s socialist system, implemented by Democrat President Johnson.
“Fraud, abuse and waste in Medicaid cost states billions of dollars every year, diverting funds that could otherwise be used for legitimate health care services. Not only do fraudulent and abusive practices increase the cost of Medicaid without adding value – they increase risk and potential harm to patients who are exposed to unnecessary procedures. In 2015, improper payments alone— totaled more than $29 billion according to the Government Accountability Office.”
But that isn’t the only driver of healthcare costs that are now anywhere from 3x to 8x that of other developed countries, and rising. Why?
Simple supply and demand may prove the answer.
Over the last two decades, the Pac-man merger and acquisition of hospitals has been phenomenal, averaging roughly 40 to 140 deals per year that swallowed between 88 to 300 hospitals per year. Less hospitals – less competition – higher prices.
But it isn’t just hospitals gaining traction, it is Big Pharma companies too who are creating monopolies that appear to be leading the sheep into a nationalized healthcare system whether we want to or not, wherein only One will remain.
During Obama’s tenure, there were 25 Big Pharma merger/acquisitions that were valued over $10 billion. The purchasers were predominantly US and German, and the sellers were nearly exclusively US.
These consolidations eliminate basic competition allowing for massive increases in cost that is not necessarily trickled down to physicians, and emphasizes what would likely happen if the US were pushed into a Medicare for all scenario.
But it isn’t just Healthcare.
Between 2011 and 2019, there were 46 mergers valued over $20 billion each, six of those were valued over 100 billion, and the largest targeted for this year is valued at $442 billion. This decade has accounted for more mergers than the previous four decades combined – and the decade is not yet over.
These mega-conglomerate companies not only determine the price we pay for goods and services, medical care and procedures, they control the election funding, and thus the election results. They control our media, and what we think, and they control the education that our children receive K-12 and throughout college.
For decades the reason politicians continue to enter office broke and leave office mega-millionaires is because they are ‘incentivized’ by the mega-conglomerates which are more than happy to make a hefty deposit into a Swiss, or Cayman, or Bermuda Bank account that can not be traced.
The Bigger Plan…
Whether the Protocols of Zion are ‘authentic’ or plagiarized, doesn’t really matter given that the content still defines the means by which an Order could gain control of the World. In order to initiate the New World Order, certain pieces of the puzzle have to align perfectly including; control of the money – Federal Reserve System, control of the media – propaganda and censorship, abolition of The Constitution, elimination of religion, creation of internal societal chaos, institution of government and personal debt, untenable taxation, liberalism, introduction of greater criminal element – ISIS, Al Qaeda, and the installation of the Mexico Wall, the nullification of Education – college graduates whose education is comparable to an eighth grader, and the ultimate return to a global Kingship or Monarchial rule – (could BREXIT disrupt the UK Monarchy?)…
Control of the Healthcare system, which has already been done in terms of Medicare and Medicaid, provides two separate functions, subjugation of the people and elimination of those who are not willing to accept this right of passage of the chosen ones allowing the social order to be implemented so as to erect the throne. In other words, submit or die.
While the actual Protocols are subject to controversy and uncertain authorship they were written more than a century ago and accurately reflect the evolution of the US, the EU, and much of the world and thus deserve to be evaluated from the standpoint that they provide us with an outline of what is being calculated so that we can combat its ultimate full implementation.
You can’t fix something you don’t know is broken. And The Protocols give us a blow by blow insight so that we can not decry ‘ignorance’ because it has been thoroughly and concisely outlined for all to read – should you choose.
To claim it is simply a conspiracy contributes to the illusion.
