So. Who will tell Michael J. Fox he needs to die?

Nice read…. Remember the MJ Fox Rush controversy

So. Who will tell Michael J. Fox he needs to die?

Which health care mouse out there will have the guts to bell the cat who is one of the most famous Parkinson’s Disease sufferers in America? Who is going to tell him that the treatments that are associated with Parkinson’s — drugs like Sinemet, Symmetrel, Eldepryl, Parlodel, Permax, Mirapex, Requip, and surgery with the quaint name “deep brain stimulation” — are just no longer possible for Fox because, well, Mike, your QALY just isn’t up to snuff, babe. You have Parkinson’s. You boozed (according to you). As a result, the government has decided treatment for you, Mike, lacks “appropriateness.” The “outcome and effectiveness” of treating you — which is to say the worth of your 47-year old life — just isn’t worth it for the rest of us.

Sorry Mike. Say Goodbye to Hollywood. Close your Parkinson’s Foundation (waste of scarce resources, to wax Singeresque). Just go home to the wife and kids, cut off these expensive meds and please die. Quietly. And for heaven’s sake, get yourself buried in private. We don’t want any of this Michael Jackson type-hoopla disrupting our favorite programs. We have lives to get on with.

    If Mr. Fox was a true Obama-loving American, he would do what this patriotic female did. Let Michael J. be the first of many Hollywood libs to fall in line behind He Who Must Be Obeyed Obama. Hell, if they fart twice and sneeze three times in a row let them be dragged off to the range.

    I think I might have stirred David Crosby or Keith RIchards into the cocktail.
    Very good read, I hope some lib goes ape-shit over it so it gets more play.

    Police say a woman rented a handgun at an Ohio indoor shooting range, got some instructions on how to use it and then fatally shot herself.

    Jeez, I think if I was that instructor I would NEVER EVER teach someone how to handle a gun again.

    LC Gunsniper says:

    Michael J. Fox is a left-wing mouthpiece and would never be denied treatment regardless of expense. Ordinary people, without the benefit of Fox’s fame and prestige, would be the sacrificial lambs.

    On Jugears Farm, all animals are equal, but some are more equal than others.

    C’mon Ranger, Cowboy up.
    No doubt, y’got a clear grasp of the incredible responsibilities that come with handling and instructing, and what happens when, in spite of allll the security, rules, procedures n’ oversight,, someone wants to apply a permanent solution to a temporary problem, and gives not a whit ’bout the folks around.
    But I sure hear ya:
    That’d make my next customer get a hairier eyeball than the ones before, for sure.
    Skirting gallows humor: It may have been better this way than stepping in front of a bus or train,, directly affecting even more folks, all with problems of their own.

    Mannn, I hope I never know the monkey of madness that just ambushed the staff and management there, but the mission continues, and it’s critical that it keeps momentum.

    Kindly hit my moniker for the latest at the NRA site anytime,, then hurry back.

    Sorry, Michael Fox, but to be fair to all of us… Under the Obama Health Care(-a-less) bus you go!!! Thumpity thumpity… my how that Parkinsonized noggin pops under the juggernaught’s mighty wheels! Toss them lil’ old ladies in the nursing home under the bus, too! Those Alzheimer’s noggins squish just as nicely! Hey, when they data-mine all those health records and link them to voting records, gun ownership records, so-called “Domestic Terrorist Watch Lists,” etc… Well, maybe conservatives might be seen as appropriate Obama Health Care(-a-less) bus tire fodder, too. Now, go on and tell me the Chicago Political Machine (Mob) wouldn’t do such a thing with that kind of power over the masses. :em12:

    Well, I’ve been dealing with the VA since 1990 and have been told that knee surgery to improve my mobility is “not cost effective”. I know exactly what to expect from ObamaCare.

    Is Michael Fox a US citizen? I thought he was Canadian. Oh, well, screwed either way then.

    That is what happens when you let bureaucrats and civil servants make health care decisions. I’m sure they would scream bloody murder if they were told they couldn’t have knee surgery. Wait a minute… Federal employees, Congress and the President will NOT be required to live less and die under Barack Nightingale’s health care plan! Doesn’t that little detail REALLY tell you all one needs to know about his so-called “reform?” If it ain’t good enough for the ruling elite, it must be PERFECT for us peasants! :em98:

    Well, see, everyone is convinced that Obamacare won’t work that way… when Medicare, Medicaid, and the VA already work that way… do they somehow think they aren’t just doing to apply the Medicaid system to everyone? because I am VERY sure that is EXACTLY how it will work.. “adapt an existing model instead of creating a new system” to “save time and costs in implementing it”.

    I have long ago started to tell leftards to lead by example and off themselves in spectacular fashion, in order to relieve Mother Gaia, reduce pollution and save welfare money. They don’t seem to listen very well. I despise them to the point where I want to help them along, in their plans of population reduction…

    In regards to Draven32’s comment @ :

    Have you read HR 676? That’s Conyer’s answer to HR 3200, and he’s tried (may still be trying) to get it accepted as a replacement to 3200.

    It’s basically :
    Medicare for All!
    It covers all “medically necessary services”!
    You can get insurance for truly elective stuff (but what happens if they think that pace-maker isn’t medically necessary? It won’t be covered by the supplemental insurance since it’s not elective)
    No Co-Pays Ever! (Just double the medicare contributions from payroll)
    No For-Profit entities in the system! (We’ll buy them out forcibly!)
    Anyone residing in the country, legally or otherwise is covered!
    All to be regulated by the “National Board of Universal Quality and Access”!
    Each region will be given a lump sum annually which will be enough to provide said quality care to everyone living there!

    The only thing 676 has going for it over 3200 is that it’s only 30 pages, so you can actually read it and understand it. Which just makes it even more frightening.

    Well, if it operates under MediCare rules, then there will be refusals because something is ‘not cost effective’ still.

    When can a provider disclose mental health information without consumer
    consent?

    Disclosure without consumer consent is permitted for: (1) treatment of the consumer (such as coordination with other service providers); (2) payment (such as to insurance companies); (3) certain health care operations (such disclosureto agencies charged with evaluating the provider). Disclosure without consent is also authorized in limited circumstances relating to the “public interest,” including (1) when required by law (such as a statute or court-ordered warrants); (2) when appropriate to notify authorities about victims of abuse, neglect, or domestic violence; (3) for certain law enforcement purposes (such as to identify or locate a suspect or missing person); and (4) when necessary to prevent or lessen serious and imminent threat to a person or the public.

    Which means that everyone with government access (police, some employers, maybe your neighbor) is now going to be able to peruse your mental health records, and the records of your family members. Your marriage counseling records, any record of treatment for depression, your therapy issues, etc. etc. etc.

    You can’t seriously think this won’t happen. I hope you didn’t tell anybody anything that you don’t want public.

    (3) for certain law enforcement purposes (such as to identify or locate a suspect or missing person);

    (3a) fishing expeditions by state agencies who are scared of real criminals;

    (4) when necessary to prevent or lessen serious and imminent threat to a person or the public.

    oh, like phrasing like this won’t get abused.

    MF is a Candadian. Since his pal BO wants to turn the US health system into the Candadian model, why not make the point by having all of MF’s health care be provided by his home country? Hmmmmm. Just like none of the Congress want to use the system they’re putting into place for the rest of us, so too does MF avoid using the same system in another country. They KNOW our current system (imperfect – very) is still better then any other in the world. So why do they not shut up. Because they are :em72:

    LC TerribleTroy, Imperial Centurion says:

    Admittedly I am woefully ignrnt regarding this subject…… but here’s what I dont undestand, if its a matter of “coverage” and we already have Medicaid & Medicare why not just improve those systems to incorporate the uninsured? Again I dont really know squat on this subject….. but its seems as if there is a mechanism in place that could be modified. If your unemployed or on the DOLE then your covered, if not then you pay either by securing your own insurance or out of pocket when needed.

    This may be the question that the majority is asking.
