Cancer clinics are turning away thousands of Medicare patients.

Cancer clinics across the country have begun turning away thousands of Medicare patients, blaming the sequester budget cuts.

Oncologists say the reduced funding, which took effect for Medicare on April 1, makes it impossible to administer expensive chemotherapy drugs while staying afloat financially.

Patients at these clinics would need to seek treatment elsewhere, such as at hospitals that might not have the capacity to accommodate them.

“If we treated the patients receiving the most expensive drugs, we’d be out of business in six months to a year,” said Jeff Vacirca, chief executive of North Shore Hematology Oncology Associates in New York. “The drugs we’re going to lose money on we’re not going to administer right now.”

Welcome to obummerland.

Howdy.

but the MUSLIM ad his BUTT UGLY MONKEY WIFE AND KIDS can go on MANY MANY VACATIONS tho RIGHT.

they NEED ARRESTED RIGHT NOW AND JAILED.

Semper Fi.

Jim.

Behind you 100%.  Who is letting these people get away with this fraud of a president and his crew? 

I am so sick of them.  I pray everyday that God will rid us of Obama. 

I suspect many are afraid to come forward or oppose Der Fuhrer because they may end up dieing of "natural causes" following their attempt to actually take action. That's how all tyrants and dictators work. If someone is a very credible threat, they just take them out.

Well, this is going to start a whole new problem. Where they taking them in before? I think we just arent going to get any care at all, and at best WE better stay healthy. I try to stay away from the doctor.  It is definately going to be a mess, and we need to get rid of OBCARE. It was a very bad Idea, to have forced on everyone.

...plenty of funds for "foreign aid" . 

The spoiled brat government would rather run the poor over with a back hoe than cut their favorite programs.  ...Just to let us "radicals" know who the "teristst" really are.

Oh they got plenty of taxpayers money for Foreign Aid, but when it comes to the people that are Legal US Citizens, they got no money. Obamacare is really socialized medicine, and we are not going to get good care, That is over with.  Lets Face It.

If you think Obamacare is bad , wait until he rams immigration reform and gun control down our throats.....that takes care of the First and Second Amendments, then he'll move on to the rest.  WHEN are WE THE PEOPLE going to stop him ????? Somebody out there , PLEASE help us get started ! 

I feel the same exact way

meanwhile moochelle and the kids continue on their fabulous vacations and spending sprees, arms continue to be sent to syria and egypt, we keep increasing foreign aid to islamic countries that wage jihad, congress continues to spend money at an alraming rate, obama gave up 5 percent of his last check, and no congress people as a unified agency ever turns down cola or pay raises....and this sequester was some minor cuts over ten years, that isnt even a speck on the debt clock, but yet they turn it into a major production, so that the democrats can say...dont you ever allow any cuts to our budget again.

The reality is this is exactly what Obama wanted. He wants to see expenses soar in medicine, he wants to turn the health care on its ear and in the long run, folks, Obamacare was meant to eventually fail after all other insurance was eliminated so a one government payer would be left. Guess what that would be. Yep, national health insurance where BO has his finger on the deaths of many of the elderly, babies and the chronically ill. No conspiracy here. This is the ultimate desired endpoint for him, and 52% of Americans has been bamboozled, duped, lied to and were stupid enough to fall for it. He is transforming America by dumbing it down using the no or low information voter in the closet of deception. Everyone will be touched by his diabolical policies no matter who they voted for.

 So as expected Obama Care was the thief of 500 million to give to illegals to gain our system while we legal seniors fight for our rights to exist after plenty of toil given into the Medicare coffers! NICE! I'll tell you what this senior is not backing down or shutting up so they best get ready for our impact in the upcoming election cycle. Not on my Watch will this stand!

Obama Lies Again: – Ignores That The Year After Signing The Stimulus More Than (4) Million Jobs Were Lost

Former President Obama, the only President in US history who had his FBI and other Intel agencies spy on the opposition party candidate, claims that he created the great economy that Americans are enjoying today. The only thing Obama created was debt and massive job losses with his horrible economic recovery.

Yesterday the former President tweeted an effort to take credit for President Trump’s successful economy:

Joe Hoft@joehoft

Of course another @BarackObama lie. He can’t open his mouth without lying. 11 years ago the US lost (4.3) million jobs over the next 12 months. Horrible liar. https://twitter.com/barackobama/status/1229432034650722304 

Barack Obama  @BarackObama

Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

President Obama’s policies were a disgrace and a failure. He doubled the national debt in spite of zero interest rates from the Fed. His recovery was the worst in US history.

Also, Obama’s assertion is just plain false. The ‘Stimulus’ was passed in February 2009 right after Obama took over the Presidency. He promised to not pass any bills for at least a week to allow for the bills to be read by the people but lied as soon as he was sworn in. The Stimulus was hundreds and hundreds of pages of government handouts to Democrat districts and it was close to $1 million. This was not what America needed and it led to the Tea Party.

Far-left Wikipedia has this to say about the Stimulus:

Note that in his infinite wisdom, NYT economist Paul Krugman is credited with arguing that “the stimulus was far smaller than the economic crisis warranted”. (He also said the markets would crash and burn if President Trump was elected President.)

The data shows that the 12 months after Obama’s stimulus, the US lost 4.3 million jobs:

In Obama’s first three years he netted a loss of 1.5 million jobs compared to President Trump who has added more than 6.7 million jobs.

When it comes to the economy, the billionaire schools the community organizer every time.
