MAD COW MEDICINE
MAD COW MEDICINE spotlights “truthiness” in 21st century American corporate medicine. Patients need to know that they are “over the rainbow.” They aren’t in Kansas anymore. They aren’t even in Wonderland anymore. MAD COW MEDICINE is worse than Wonderland!
Last year, a Kaiser Permanente anonymous Regional Appeal Committee decided that Jackie’s knee replacement surgery is “medically necessary,” but isn’t “medically indicated.” Say What?
Kaiser’s MAD COW MEDICAL COMMITTEE says that walking is “medically necessary,” but isn’t
Jackie had polio. She and 58,000 other American victims from the 1952 polio epidemic disagree.
MAD COW MEDICINE is money-driven. Medical decisions are based on money, not truth. Truth matters not at all. Right matters not at all. Humanity matters not at all. Patients matter not at all.
That’s how ObamaCare’s bureaucratic maze works. You don’t get the medical care Obama mandated that you are required to pay for. You don’t get to participate in medical decisions. That’s reserved for national, regional, local, and invisible Death Panels.
HMO HARDBALL’s “MAD COW MEDICINE” image shows a homeless woman who was discharged to Skid Row by Kaiser Permanente’s Bellflower hospital on March 20, 2006. A video surveillance camera captured this patient wandering in a daze, in little more than a hospital gown, after being dropped off by a taxi at curbside, near the Union Rescue Mission.
The Los Angeles City Attorney filed criminal charges to stop Kaiser’s savage attacks on helpless patients. Civil lawsuits were also filed.
Stephen Colbert coined the word “truthiness” on The Colbert Report on October 17, 2005. In satire, truthiness is a 'truth' that a person claims to know intuitively "from the gut" without regard to evidence, logic, intellectual examination, or facts.
MAD COW MEDICINE is Truthiness! MAD COW MEDICINE is ObamaCare!
