Weekly Wrap: Sebelius is to Obamacare as Boyle is to Autism

AofA Red Logo Ayumi YamadaBy Dan Olmsted Sebelius

Oof. That's about all a poor besieged progressive like me can say after watching the Obamacare rollout. "A self-inflicted wound for people who believe in the public sector," said journalist and historian Jon Meacham.

Listening to HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius at the House hearing this week reminded me of listening to the CDC's Coleen Boyle at the House hearing last year. They don't know much but they'll get the answers, they say.

The CDC is part of HHS, and there's a pattern here -- bad performance. HHS was asleep at the switch as the Website was "readied" for rollout. CDC and FDA -- also part of HHS -- were asleep at the switch as vaccines containing way too much cumulative mercury were rolled out. The IACC, also under the thumb of HHS, is asleep, period, as the autism epidemic rolls on.

I was at the meeting where Sebelius spoke about all the great work the committee and its chair Tom Insell were doing. Heck of a job, Tommy.
Along with everything else, the post-vaccine court autism epidemic is incompetence with a heaping helping of unaccountability piled on top. For those who believe that the federal government simply could not be boneheaded enough to trigger an autism epidemic, and then self-interested enough to hide it and blame every other possible culprit, Obamacare to date is a pungent riposte -- oh yes they can.

"We all want progress,"wrote C.S. Lewis.  "But progress means getting nearer to the place you want to be. And if you have taken a wrong turn, then to go forward does not get you any nearer. If you are on the wrong road, progress means doing an about turn and walking back to the right road; and in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive man."

Every 11 minutes, a child is diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder. 1 in 88 children in the United States is on the autism spectrum; 1 in 54 boys. We advocate for inclusive health insurance coverage, vital research, early intervention and treatment, and life-long support and necessary services for individuals with autism and their families. We call on President Obama and Congress to develop and implement a comprehensive national plan to address autism. Our 1 in 88 can’t wait!Autism Speaks. It's time for the President and Congress to listen. - See more at: http://action.lightitupblue.org/c.arKQI4MBIgI4E/b.8566551/k.66A7/Give_Hope_Take_Action/siteapps/advocacy/ActionItem.aspx#sthash.HNGWBVYm.dpuf


"CDC and FDA -- also part of HHS -- were asleep at the switch as vaccines containing way too much cumulative mercury were rolled out."

Of course but when one thinks about what can safely be put in "vaccines" only one conclusion is possible IMO.

A saline solution might possibly be "safe" but I would never risk one. Why would I risk being injected by LIARS? What would really be in the syringe?

Would the saline solution consist of sea salt or processed salt? Processed salt we know includes dozens of chemicals that you do not want in your blood stream. If sea salt is used what sort of impurities, that are not normally found in salt water, are included?

We know in the real world of deadly "vaccine" production they are still using monkey kidneys to grow the "vaccine" garbage. Folks after ALL the evidence that monkey viruses can NEVER be filtered out they are still USING MONKEY KIDNEYS.

"Vaccination" is an inherently EXTREMELY DANGEROUS procedure that MIGHT be justified if one is in mortal danger.

Personally I would rather take my chances with death.


How young the $5/visit doctor(see Linda's post, above) looks at age 87. Whatever he's doing for his patients must be good for him too.


Boyle and Sebelius are an example of one of the three kinds of unreliable witnesses: liars, damned liars and experts.

Sad times now with Obamacare for patients on Medicaid, especially those with autism. Doctors with patients on Medicaid will be watched more closely than Terminal 3 at LAX.
Prescriptions, in particular, will be monitored like a felon on probation. Doctors will want to opt out for good reason no doubt.


Didnt Obama promise to help the Autism community when he first ran for office?


Autism did not make the top 10 here with a 1 in 29 Autism rate for boys in New Jersey.

Deadly bioterror threats: 6 real risks

...However, according to national bioterrorism experts, these government lists may be based more on the deadliness of pathogens than on the true risks they pose.
The feasibility of a ...potential delivery system.... should also be considered.

What if "bioterrorists infiltrated the CDC" and hijacked the vaccine schedule as their delivery system ???

I had a 400 dollar pap smear, of which I had to cover 20%! Didn't see a doctor, just a nurse practitioner. I said, I believe I am entitled under the new law to have this procedure covered by my current insurance, they looked at me like I had two heads. It's not all in the law, it's in the stupidity that is ubiquitous as well as a huge effort to make this NOT work, and I understand, fear and greed are a bad mix. On the flip side, my little asthmatic is now able to get his spacer and rescue inhaler, as well as the doc trip for those RX's. I do see it leading to single payer, and we will have to decide as a country if our citizens are worth having health or not. ..but that's at least ten years down the road. My neighbor said, "I don't care as long as they don't give them the quality of care I worked so hard to have"..really? I hope my kids aren't "them"..


The health care mess in this country cries out for a solution but I don't think we can expect a good one from the current government setup of captured regulators and their corporate masters.

Love the C.S. Lewis quote! Very apt.


As I was going through old files yesterday, I came upon medical bills from 5-7 years ago. Noticing that the price of everything had more than doubled and in some cases tripled, for a second I thought I should keep these documents as evidence. But then I quickly came to my senses, knowing that no one would care anyway.

Re going back to the right road, in the news today a $5 a visit doctor just retired at age 88. While I do not think that any doctor should have to forgo a family and vacations, this doctor did that. He literally gave his life to the health (including financial - $5 is an increase of the $2 that he used to charge) of the Illinois community that he served since 1955. He would not take appointments and would stay until the last person was taken care of. Emergencies were taken through the back door. The town's pharmacy would close when the doctor called them to say that he was done for the day, no matter how late that was. The doctor doesn't want any publicity. He just wanted to take care of people. That is what the practice of medicine should be about.
