President Trump Needs To Stop Breaking The Law Over Obamacare Like Obama Did
Post Date: 2017-08-16 08:22:50 by Tooconservative
2 Comments
Over the last several months, this space has highlighted that President Trump has an opportunity and a challenge: Restoring the constitutional rule of law his predecessor often ignored. Such a move would require ending the Obama administration’s ad hoc rewriting of Obamacare, implementing the law as written—no more, no less. Into that debate stepped the Conservative Action Project on Friday, with a memo noting that the president can and should lead on Obamacare. The title suggests a continuation of Obama’s “pen and a phone” mentality, emphasizing executive unilateralism in the face of Congress’ inability to pass “repeal-and-replace” legislation ...

Seniors Becoming Fastest Growing Marijuana Users

DENVER (CBS4) – Seniors are becoming as the fastest growing segment of the marijuana industry. According to a national survey, usage among adults 65 and older is up 250 percent, while adults 50-65 have also increased usage nearly 58 percent. “I’ve generally felt that recreational drugs of any kind were no nos, and I still do,” says 91-year-old Duane Kniebes. “Cannabis seems to be somewhere in between.” Kniebes was part of a standing room-only meeting in Louisville meant to educate seniors on marijuana as a treatment for chronic pain. The World War II veteran who suffers from chronic foot pain says his opinion of marijuana has changed dramatically. ...

That Chicago soda tax was an even bigger hot mess than predicted
Post Date: 2017-08-12 22:51:04 by Tooconservative

Back in December of last year, over vocal protests from residents, Cook County, Illinois (which is primarily composed of Chicago) adopted a policy similar to many other cash strapped, liberal municipalities. They decided to save the people from themselves and simultaneously put a bunch of money in the city’s nearly empty coffers by imposing a sin tax on soda and other “sweetened beverages.” Their argument was that soda is unhealthy so people would drink less of it if it cost more, and if they managed to keep the the bankruptcy lawyers away from the door for a while longer, all the better! We’ve written about these sin taxes of various sorts at length here and studied ...

Should Physicians Decide Who Gets to Use Psychedelics?

Good luck controlling access to stuff that grows in cow dungIf MDMA and psilocybin move from schedule I to prescription status in the next decade--and there's good reason to think they will--obtaining the drugs will require going to a doctor and using them in a controlled setting. In the new issue of Drug Science, Policy and Law, the University of Amsterdam's James W.B. Elsey argues that while the medicalization of psychedelic drugs makes sense from a health care perspective, "the nebulous boundary between treatment and enhancement, and indeed between religious and personal discovery or spiritual uses, raises problems for the clarity of law": For example, is a person who ...

WaPo: Why Jeff Sessions is going to lose his war against cannabis

Attorney General Jeff Sessions will soon receive a report he has been waiting for. The document, from the President’s Task Force on Crime Reduction and Public Safety, is expected to clarify the federal government’s position on marijuana — and the conflicts that exist between state and federal laws. It clear what Sessions wants to do: Over the past month, he has asked Congress for permission to prosecute medical cannabis suppliers who are acting in accordance with their state’s laws, reauthorized civil asset forfeiture (a highly controversial practice used in drug cases), and announced his desire to start a new “war on drugs.” On at least one front, however, ...

The Cost of Not Having Single Payer: $1.4 Trillion Per Year

You could not devise a worse health care system than that of the United States if you tried. By far the most expensive, with among the worst results. Perhaps saying “among” the worst results is being too kind. That is an accurate statement if we are simply measuring metrics such as mortality rates and other medical outcomes. But if we consider that tens of millions of United Statesians go without health insurance while none do in any advanced capitalist country (or most any other) — and that tens of thousands annually die because of that lack — then we must reasonably assess the U.S. health care system as the worst. This is the high cost of private profit in health ...

DOJ Charges 400 People [opioids, healthcare fraud]

The Department of Justice, spearheaded by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, just charged over 400 licensed medical professionals with the mishandling of prescriptions and other heath care related fraud. About a quarter of those charged were charged with opioid-related crimes. Opioid overdoses have been described as “an epidemic” where over 90 Americans die on average every day in what Sessions describes as “trusted medical professionals… [putting] greed ahead of their patients.” Per Washington Post: More than 400 people across the country have been charged with participating in health care fraud scams totaling about $1.3 billion in false billings, including for the ...

Rand Paul: Senate GOP Decides to Keep Obamacare

I miss the old days, when Republicans stood for repealing Obamacare. Republicans across the country and every member of my caucus campaigned on repeal – often declaring they would tear out Obamacare “root and branch!” What happened? Now too many Republicans are falling all over themselves to stuff hundreds of billions of taxpayers’ dollars into a bill that doesn’t repeal Obamacare and feeds Big Insurance a huge bailout. Obamacare regulations? Still here. Taxes? Many still in place, totaling hundreds of billions of dollars. Insurance company bailouts? Those, too. Remember when Republicans complained about Obamacare’s risk corridors? Remember when we called ...

More Coffee, Longer Life According To Two New Studies

A pair of new studies has just been published that suggest the more coffee a person drinks, the longer their lifespan. It’s official: I’m immortal, according to science. Two studies have confirmed what morning challenged people and coffee lovers already know: coffee is life.  Ok, maybe it’s not that serious, but it’s at least an ability to function in the morning for some. But, the studies, both published Monday, have resurfaced the centuries-old conversation on coffee’s health effects, and both studies were published in the Annals of Internal Medicine.According to CNN, one study surveyed more than 520,000 people in 10 European countries, making ...

Oral sex spreading unstoppable bacteria [the Clap]

Oral sex is producing dangerous gonorrhoea and a decline in condom use is helping it to spread, the World Health Organization has said. It warns that if someone contracts gonorrhoea, it is now much harder to treat, and in some cases impossible. The sexually transmitted infection is rapidly developing resistance to antibiotics. Experts said the situation was "fairly grim" with few new drugs on the horizon. About 78 million people pick up the STI each year and it can cause infertility. The World Health Organization analysed data from 77 countries which showed gonorrhoea's resistance to antibiotics was widespread. Dr Teodora Wi, from the WHO, said there had even been ...

At least the experiment is reproducible. (Flickr/Julien Belli under CC-BY) Share Written by Akshat Rathi September 20, 2016 Over the past decade, scientists have increasingly become ashamed at the failings of their own profession: due to a lack of self-policing and quality control, a large proportion of studies have not been replicable, scientific frauds have flourished for years without being caught, and the pressure to publish novel findings—instead of simply good science—has become the commanding mantra. In what might be one of the worst such failings, a new study suggests that even systematic reviews and meta-analyses—typically ...

Survey: Pain patients overwhelmingly prefer medical marijuana over opioids [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2017-06-29 12:14:32 by Tooconservative

Of those who used both opioids and cannabis, 92% say they prefer the latter. When patients have a choice between opioids and medical marijuana for a painful condition, an overwhelming majority say they prefer marijuana, that it works just as well, and has fewer side effects, a new survey finds. Though the survey, involving 2,897 medical cannabis patients, didn’t track actual drug use or efficacy, the findings fits with previous data. Decades of research suggest marijuana is effective for pain treatment. And recent studies have found that in states with medical marijuana availability, there are fewer opioid overdose deaths and doctors fill fewer opioid prescriptions. The authors of ...

There’s a horrific case over in the U.K. that hasn’t gotten a ton of attention here, but it should. If we look closely, we may see our future — and our present. Charlie Gard is a 10-month-old baby who suffers from a rare genetic disorder called mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome. It’s a horrendous condition that leads to organ malfunction, brain damage, and other symptoms. The hospital that had been treating the boy, Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children in London, made the determination that nothing more can be done for him and he must be taken off of life support. He should “die with dignity,” they said. The parents, Chris Gard and Connie ...

How long can humans live?

Last year, a trio of New York researchers claimed humans had already lived as long as they possibly could.About 115 years, said Albert Einstein College of Medicine researchers, that's the maximum human lifespan. Now a group of Canadian researchers challenges that assertion, saying its possible human existence may be boundless."It does not mean that we know there is no limit. But because we can detect no limit it is possible that indeed there is no limit," said McGill University biologist Siegfried Hekimi. "Average human life span keeps increasing dramatically and maximum human lifespan seems to follow. I see no statistical or demonstrated biological reason how we would ...

A new study has concluded that not even the clock can always mend a broken heartSongwriters, poets and novelists have longed mused over whether time truly heals everything. Charles Dickens toyed over whether the bitter Miss Haversham would ever recover from being jilted at the altar, and for many historians, Queen Victoria's black dress came to symbolise her irreparable suffering over Prince Albert's death. But a new study has apparently put their agonising to bed and concluded that not even the clock can always mend a broken heart. A team of medical researchers from the University of Aberdeen have said that so-called "broken heart syndrome" can leave physical scars that ...

Annalise Lujan, from Tucson in the US state of Arizona, was participating in a gymnastics competition on 2 April when she was suddenly unable to walk, according to her mother Maryann Lujan. The next morning, she was struck with seizures and rushed to intensive care where she was hooked onto a ventilator and put into a medical coma, KVOA reported. Doctors at Phoenix Chidren’s Hospital have since diagnosed the young girl with a form of epilsepy known as Febrile Infection-Related Epilepsy Syndrome (Fires). The disease affects only one in ...

A 31-year-old man died after he reportedly ignored warnings about swimming after getting a new tattoo and contracted a flesh-eating bacteria infection in the Gulf of Mexico. The unidentified man, whose case was detailed in the British Medical Journal, had gotten a tattoo on his right calf five days prior to swimming, Metro reported. The man had chosen a crucifix and pair of praying hands for his latest ink, and began suffering from fever, chills and a rash close to the tattoo after swimming, the news outlet reported. He reportedly developed sepsis in his right calf, which had turned purple by the time he was admitted to the hospital. Two weeks after he was placed on life support, his ...

Trump Budget Director Mick Mulvaney said that people with Type 2 diabetes don’t deserve to have health insurance because they gave themselves diabetes. While speaking at Stanford University, Trump Budget Director Mick Mulvaney classified diabetes as a bad lifestyle choice, “That doesn’t mean we should take care of the person who sits at home, eats poorly and gets diabetes. Is that the same thing as Jimmy Kimmel’s kid? I don’t think that it is.” If you get Type II diabetes because you listened to Republicans and rebelled against former First Lady Michelle Obama’s efforts to encourage healthy eating, you’re on your own.

First-Ever Peer-Reviewed Study of Vaccinated vs Unvaccinated Children Shows Vaccinated Kids Have a Higher Rate of Sickness, 470% Increase in Autism

In a development that autism parents have long anticipated, the first-ever, peer-reviewed study comparing total health outcomes in vaccinated and unvaccinated children was released on line yesterday. According to sources close to the project, the study had been reviewed and accepted by two different journals, both of which pulled back on their approval once the political implications of the findings became clear. That’s largely because, as parents have long expected, the rate of autism is significantly higher in the vaccinated group, a finding that could shake vaccine safety claims just as the first president who has ever stated a belief in a link between vaccines and autism has taken ...
