This healthcare crisis (including all aspects of it) is obviously going to worsen. I just found another website that explains how many states are cutting programs - which will result in more hospitalization and probably lines for emergency treatment. Keep in mind that this was written in 2008 - and many of the cuts have already been made....and we wonder why there are screams in the night....???? Here's an excerpt -- link is below and includes CA:
Florida Budget Cuts - The Grim Facts NowPublic News Coverage
Programs for the Elderly and Disabled
At least five states are cutting or proposing to cut medical, rehabilitative, home care, or other services needed by low-income people who are elderly or have disabilities, or significantly increasing the amounts that such people must pay for the services.
Florida legislators have proposed a number of cuts which will affect elderly and disabled populations: nursing homes and other providers would not get scheduled cost-of-living adjustments in their reimbursements and staffing standards would be relaxed in the expectation that the freeze would result in staffing cuts; Medicaid reimbursements to hospitals would be cut; hospice care for 8,000 terminally ill Medicaid patients would be eliminated; and the state’s only tuberculosis hospital would be closed. The Florida House proposes to eliminate coverage of hospital care from the state’s Medically Needy program, while the Senate plan would limit the program to children and pregnant women and eliminate 16,000 beneficiaries from the program. The Senate proposal eliminates a Medicaid program that covers 24,000 disabled and elderly state residents.
White House officials are searching for ways for Obama to 'use executive powers to advance energy, environmental and other policy priorities'
UPDATE: FOXNews.com - Obama Poised to Use Executive Power to Muscle Through Domestic Agenda
by Jim Kouri
Last week, the U.S. Department of Justice's Inspector General told conservative lawmakers that he was not empowered to investigate complaints of voter intimidation during the 2008 presidential election, according to the Washington Times.
With a growing number of lawmakers and Americans criticizing the dismissal of complaints against the New Black Panther Party, Justice Department Inspector General Glenn A. Fine said he should be able to investigate the department to discover the rationale for terminating the investigation, but was powerless because Congress had stripped him of that authority. As a result, the U.S. Justice Department is not expected to pursue any action against the group
Many Americans were disappointed last year when officials at the US Department of Justice announced that they had dropped their investigation of voter intimidation by the New Black Panther Party, a radical group who were devoted to the election of Barack Obama.
During an interview on March 20, 2008 with Black Panther leader Malik Zulu Shabazz, Fox News Channel viewers learned that Shabazz' group endorsed and supported Senator Barack Obama for President of the United States.
Even on Fox -- an organization wrongly accused of being "conservative" -- the interviewers were careful in their questioning of Shabazz, a recognized racist and anti-American radical.
The New Black Panther Party leader proudly announced on Fox News that his organization endorsed and supported Obama for President.
"While some people may say that Barack Obama has no control over who endorses him, he should have control over what endorsements are posted on his web sites," said Laurie Roth, who hosts a popular syndicated talk show
"The endorsement of the New Black Panther Party was posted on Barack Obama's web site. Why was this tolerated unless Barack Obama wanted their endorsement? If he does not want their endorsement, how much control over his staff is he going to have once he's elected President?" asks Mike Baker.
Once the New Black Panthers announced their endorsement, Obama's damage-control team pulled the Black Panthers' endorsement story off their web site. The Obama campaign also requested that the Panthers remove news of the group's endorsement from its own web site, which it did.
After election day, the New Black Panther Party for Self Defense made news headlines again because the US Justice Department dropped its Voting Rights Act violation investigation against the militant group and three of its members in spite of allegations that the defendants intimidated voters and those aiding them during the November 4, 2008 general election.
The complaint, filed in the United States District Court in Philadelphia, alleged that, during the election, Minister King Samir Shabazz and Jerry Jackson were deployed at the entrance to a Philadelphia polling location wearing the uniform of the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense, and that Samir Shabazz repeatedly brandished a police-style baton weapon. There exists news video footage verifying this.
"Intimidation outside of a polling place is contrary to the democratic process," said Acting Assistant Attorney General Grace Chung Becker at the time. "The Voting Rights Act of 1965 was passed to protect the fundamental right to vote and the Department takes allegations of voter intimidation seriously."
According to the complaint, party Chairman Malik Zulu Shabazz confirmed that the placement of Samir Shabazz and Jackson in Philadelphia was part of a nationwide effort to deploy New Black Panther Party members at polling locations on Election Day.
The complaint alleged a violation of Section 11(b) of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which prohibits intimidation, coercion or threats against "any person for voting or attempting to vote."
While most of the denizens of this country's newsrooms are yawned over this story, some newspapers and news shows are provided coverage.
For instance, the Washington Times reported that Associate Attorney General Thomas J. Perrelli, the number three man in the Obama Justice Department, was consulted and ultimately approved a decision last May to reverse course and drop a complaint accusing three members of the New Black Panther Party of intimidating voters in Philadelphia during November's election.
The department's career lawyers in the Voting Section of the Civil Rights Division who pursued the complaint for five months had recommended that Justice seek sanctions against the party and three of its members after the government had already won a default judgment in federal court against the men, states the Washington Times.
The Washington Times news story, reprinted on the Fox News Channel web site, reported that:
"Front-line lawyers were in the final stages of completing that work when they were unexpectedly told by their superiors in late April to seek a delay after a meeting between political appointees and career supervisors, according to federal records and interviews.
"The delay was ordered by then-acting Assistant Attorney General Loretta King after she discussed with Perrelli concerns about the case during one of their regular review meetings, according to the interviews.
"King, a career senior executive service official, had been named by President Obama in January to temporarily fill the vacant political position of assistant attorney general for civil rights while a permanent choice could be made."
The New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense, which claims active chapters nationwide, is distinct from the Black Panther Party founded by Bobby Seale in the 1960s.
Meanwhile, the Obama security team -- Attorney General Eric Holder, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and other political appointees -- is closely monitoring "right-wing extremists" who oppose abortion, gun control, federal intrusion into local police matters, etc.

from our Conservative friend Ernest Huber, who is running for Congress in the great state of Washington:
Most of our problems weren't acquired overnight, so they won't be fixed overnight. Realizing that, I will promote economic relief by immediately sponsoring or supporting legislation to: eliminate all capital gains, inheritance, personal and corporate income taxes and replacing them with a minimal national sales tax for most consumers (the Fair Tax); freeze then cut federal spending; cut the number and power of government employees; and balance the budget. Less money going to nonproductive government employees means more money going to productive private sector employees, job creation, and more freedom. Government employees do not deserve our money, or to run our businesses. When the money goes away, the tyrants go away. President Reagan was correct, government isn’t the solution, it’s the problem. This is not rocket science. The more someone takes from you, the poorer and less free you are.
The markets, like people, must by free to properly function. Government employees don't create jobs, they just spend our money. But they sure can destroy jobs. The more that government employees intentionally tighten their business-destroying regulatory vise, the more those businesses will fail, or leave. Those businesses go overseas, or, like Boeing, they move to another state, causing massive job losses. As your Congressman, I will oppose anyone in government who engages in regulatory economic sabotage to increase their power -- including Barack Obama and Christine Gregoire.
I will support the repeal of the economy-destroying Cap and Trade (that some RINOs voted for), TARP, stimulus plans, any Obama health plan, and all other hoax legislation.
The Internal Revenue Code and the IRS must be abolished and replaced by the national sales tax on consumption that pays only for national defense and veterans, the federal courts, Congressional operations, Presidential operations, and current social security obligations. Unfunded departments should be abolished. No other taxes should be levied. No taxes should even be considered unless justified by the combined Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports, with no excluded entities, from all levels of government. The $trillion off-book government enterprise slush funds should be liquidated and the surpluses disbursed to the citizens.
The Federal Reserve is a private central banking monopoly that must be audited, then banned. In 1871, the Supreme Court ruled in Knox v. Lee that Congress could Constitutionally print debt-free money and regulate its value to fund government operations. Consequently, it's an ongoing RICO crime for federal government employees to borrow from the Federal Reserve. The crime is compounded because what is "borrowed" is valueless paper that's repaid with the wealth of our labors. This monstrous parasitic fraud results in a crushing illusory debt that is used to justify taxing and regulating us out of our economic and political freedoms for the sole purpose of unlawfully enriching and empowering criminals. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fHLXO_y3KIg
"A private central bank issuing the public currency is a greater menace to the liberties of the people than a standing army...We must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt." ~Thomas Jefferson
The debt owed to the Federal Reserve should be disavowed as the product of a criminal enterprise. Its owners and employees should be prosecuted as necessary, and their RICO wealth seized and redistributed to the poor. Most of our economic problems and taxes will vanish after the Federal Reserve is dissolved, and we start Constitutionally funding our government. A money supply that we print and regulate to pay for our interest-free and fairly valued goods and services under a balanced budget can never cause debt or inflation, and will result in no taxation. It will unleash enormous prosperity and freedom. As your Congressman, that will be my ultimate economic goal.
"I have two great enemies, the Southern Army in front of me and
the bankers to the rear. Of the two, the one at my rear is my greatest
foe." ~Abraham Lincoln
Central banking and some variant of communism is a two-edged sword that has been used by whack jobs for centuries to disorient, disempower, enslave and destroy countless millions from all political parties. We vastly outnumber our adversaries. The only power they hold over us is psychological. One way to stop them is through free and fair elections.
However...fiscal conservatism is amoral and can be deadly without social conservatism. The administration of dictatorships, slavery, gulags, and genocide can be fiscally conservative. Freedom is about morals, not money. That's why the ideology of social conservatism matters. So let's talk about it.

The Democrats win, because 1/2 the Conservatives voted for the Republican candidate and the other 1/2 of Conservatives voted for the "Tea Party candidate". They split the vote...which means the Socialists retain power....and we get more of the same!!!
IS THIS WHAT YOU PEOPLE WANT?
GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER, CONSERVATIVES!
THE REPUBLICANS & TEA PARTY PEOPLE NEED TO ALIGN & SUPPORT THE SAME CANDIDATE. OUR MUTUAL GOAL IS TO OUST THE DEMOCRATS, NOT TO OUST EACH OTHER!

-Pelosi: Where Are the Jobs, Mr. President?
August 1, 2003
Washington, D.C. --
House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement today on the
Bureau of Labor Statistics' announcement that 470,000 people abandoned their job searches in July and that 3.2 million private sector jobs have been lost since President Bush took office: “The fact is that President Bush’s misguided economic policies have failed to create jobs. Since President Bush took office, the country has lost 3.2 million jobs, the worst record since President Hoover. And today we learned that in July nearly half a million people gave up looking for a job. “Job losses are taking a real toll on the financial security of American families. While Democrats are fighting for opportunity, jobs, and economic security for working families, Republicans continue to focus on helping those who need help the least.
“According to today’s survey, while the national unemployment rate dropped slightly, it still stands at a near record high. In addition, the unemployment rate for African Americans was still over 11 percent in July, and the unemployment rate for Hispanics was 8.2 percent in July.
“It is time for President Bush and the Republicans to get to work for all Americans, not just the elite few.”
Since President Obama took office, the country has lost 7.6 million jobs.
Since President Obama took office an average of 524,000 have lost their jobs each month.
Unemployed African Americans is at 43.8% in January, 2010
Unemployed Hispanic Americans is 37.2% in January, 2010
08/01/2003 U3 Unemployment 6.2%; U6 Unemployment 10.3%
02/01/2010 U3 Unemployment 10.3%; U6 Unemployment 16.5%
