U.S. Senate Health Committee Passes Health Care Reform Bill that will Bankrupt America

(NaturalNews) The great lumbering health care reform gears are in motion in Washington D.C., and the Big Government machine is spitting out a new recipe for the bankruptcy of America: A "health care reform" bill that pleases all the special interest groups and pharmaceutical companies but does nothing to improve the health of ordinary Americans.

Health care reform in Washington today isn't about health, or reform. It's about mandating monopoly-priced western medicine for the masses. It's about fining people who wisely opt out of the criminally-operated health insurance industry, and it's designed to keep the American people sick and diseased while emptying their pockets of any remaining earnings they might have somehow squirreled away during the ongoing financial / real estate crash.

For starters, this Senate health reform bill would financially penalize people who take care of their own health and choose not to hand over $1,000 or month (or more) to a corrupt, criminally-operated health insurance system. This is a bill that actually punishes people for staying healthy! At the same time, it just happens to expand the monopoly of western medicine to encompass the entire U.S. population, criminalizing those who have opted out of the failed health care system.

The other joke in this health care reform is the idea of a new government-run health plan, which is being hilariously presented as a way to "drive down costs."

Since when has Big Government ever been able to drive down the costs of anything? It was Big Government, under the Bush administration, that actually made it illegal for government to negotiate price discounts with drug companies, locking in monopoly prices that filled the coffers of Big Pharma while bankrupting the taxpayers.

Even now, the FDA (under the Obama administration) continues its outright war against the natural products industry, censoring truthful information about the health benefits of dietary supplements in a tyrannical effort to eliminate Big Pharma's competition. This has the effect of eliminating choice for consumers, ultimately driving up monopoly health care costs under the system of western medicine that (laughingly) claims to provide health care today.

Life is a pre-existing condition

The one good thing in the current discussions about health care reform is the idea of barring insurance companies from denying coverage for pre-existing conditions. Because, after all, who doesn't have a pre-existing condition? Simply being born is a pre-existing condition, isn't it? (Hospitals consider pregnancy and childbirth to be medical emergencies requiring drugs and surgery...)

According to drug-pushing psychiatrists, life itself is a pre-existing condition requiring pharmaceutical intervention. Merely experiencing emotions like sadness or happiness (or too much happiness followed by too much sadness) is a disease, they claim. Where are the reforms that would outlaw this psych drugging nonsense?

Meanwhile, there is nothing in these reforms that would actually teach Americans how to be healthy. Where are the calls for the arrest and imprisonment of Big Pharma executives, corrupt FDA officials and rogue FTC enforcers who have indirectly caused the deaths of millions of Americans through their war on natural remedies? Where is the ban on pharmaceutical TV ads, or the requirement that medical studies practice something resembling honest science instead of just making up whatever numbers they want and submitting those to medical journals for publication?

Why is aspartame still legal? Or monosodium glutamate? Or Ritalin? Where are the real reforms that Americans desperately need to raise a generation of healthy children?

Those reforms, of course, are never to be discussed. They would threaten the profits of too many powerful food and drug corporations. So they aren't even part of the discussion.

My own Health Revolution Petition (www.HealthRevolutionPetition.org) is the real pathway to health reform in America. And yet even that petition is still a long way from the needed 100,000 signatures. That's because good ideas don't get much traction in mainstream America these days. Now, if I had a movie about teenage vampires (Twilight), that would get some traction. But sensible ideas about helping teens get healthy are utterly ignored.

The last sputtering gasp of western medicine in America

I've watched the health care situation in America quite closely for the past five years, and it's not difficult to see where this is heading.

The political whores and sellouts in Washington routinely and predictably trade your future for their own short-term political gain, and that means selling out to medical special interest groups that thrive on disease and disinformation. The last thing these people want is a healthy population that needs fewer medical services. They don't want a cure for cancer. They don't want natural remedies for reversing heart disease. They don't want kids to be healthy and happy without drugs.

What they want is a nation of drug addicts who play the role of helpless medical system dependants. They want people to be uninformed, nutritionally ignorant and irreversibly diseased because that's the way they make more money and stay in power.

And that's why health care reform in America is ultimately about appeasing the special interest groups of the medical-pharmaceutical-agriculture industrial complex. It's all about keeping them in power (and in the money), and it has absolutely nothing to do with improving the health of a single American.

Yes, health care in America today is a disaster. But the last thing it needs is more Big Government running the show. Think about where our nation is headed right now with Big Government:

• Big Government now owns 50% of the homes in America (through the bailout fiasco involving Freddie and Fannie).

• Big Government now owns the biggest banks and investment houses in America.

• Big Government wants to become the landlord-in-chief by turning homeowners into home renters, where half the population rents from the government (and has no ownership of the homes in which they live).

• Big Government now runs a significant portion of the auto industry.

• And now, Big Government wants to run the health care system, too!

How is this not some strange brand of American Communism? When government owns (and runs) everything, and the free choice of the citizens is stripped from them, you no longer have a free country; you have Communism.

And that, unfortunately, is where America is headed: The land of the medical-financial-economic dictatorship, where all decisions are made for you by Big Brother, and free citizens who exercise free choice are either fined or imprisoned. It's already happening with vaccines and cancer treatments. Just wait to see what happens when you dare say "no" to the new Obama health insurance plan!

Health care dictatorship

This new "health care reform" bill might as well be called the health care dictatorship bill. They say it will cover all Americans. Yes, it will, but it will cover them in a smokescreen of sickness and bankruptcy, accelerating the rapid decline of the American empire and trapping its people in a quagmire of medical enslavement from which the nation will never escape.

We are, in a very real sense, watching the slow, miserable death of a nation. Between its insurmountable financial problems ($12 trillion in debt right now, and nearly another $100 billion each month) and its health care failures (widespread degenerative disease now dominates the American population), America has positioned itself as a geopolitical failure of truly historic proportions. Yet instead of working to actually solve its problems, America has decided to spend more debt money, drug more people, take over more banks, print more fictitious money and hurl itself head-first into a brick wall with even more rapidity than anyone had previously thought possible.

It's almost as if America's leaders can't wait to kill the nation, and they'd love to take a few million more citizens with them.

The philosophy in Washington today is like this:

• If the debt is too great to bear, spend more debt money!

• If health care is a disaster due to the monopolistic medical industry, enforce the monopoly nationwide!

• If the financial system isn't working because of bad decisions made by investors, just make bigger and "badder" decisions at a higher level! (And bail out the investors while you're at it.)

• If the money runs out, just print more!

Such is the mindset dominating America's decisions today. They are beyond reckless. They are hopelessly suicidal. And what we're seeing with health care reform today is merely a reflection of the national suicide being committed by our ethically-compromised representatives in Washington who would rather shore up their own six-year terms than help protect the next hundred years for the very people they hypocritically claim to represent.
