The dreaded death panel practices for senior citizens in government-funded Medicare programs is already here—and condemning people to death. The following is one ongoing example with a vulnerable senior citizen being condemned to death by refusal to perform diagnostic tests (statement that they aren't done for people of advance age); threats of dire consequences if industry-accepted surgical treatment is requested, delays in palliative treatment, and spreading cancer. This, episode is occurring at the Kaiser Permanent offices in Walnut Creek, California, and being carried out with the full knowledge of the organization's executive officers at Oakland, California.
For a period of over one year, diagnostic tests, standard for the symptoms being reported, were denied, even though both of his parents died of cancer. Kaiser Permanent physicians stated diagnostic tests for the symptoms were not given to government health plan members at that age. Then, after going out of the Kaiser Permanente network and obtaining the diagnostic test elsewhere, that showed advance Stage 3 kidney cancer (that had progressed because of the money-saving efforts of Kaiser physicians), Kaiser physicians portrayed grave consequences if the member choose surgery, and then promised prompt other treatment, which never came.
The patient is a well-known person throughout the United States exposing major corruption of key people in various government operations, the financial field sector, and also the medical, profession. This denial of industry-standard medical care, bringing on an early death, pleases those that his efforts have been exposing for years.
The existing culture that follows could affect you, your wife or husband, or your mother and father, either as a member of Kaiser-Permanente, or another plan that may use the same tactics.
Thoughts on this???

The patient is a well-known person throughout the United States.....
I wish they could tell the name of the 'well-known person'. It would give credibillity to this story. It would give us a chance to find out if this is true just a compilation of cases. That being said, I do believe that the regulations imposed by PBO-care will put undue hardship on patients, providers, and insurers to meet those regulations. Now that the bill is law, they can control medicine from within the law in the form of regulations without the approval of Congress. This is what worries me the most. This administrations circumventing of the Congress to get his vision pushed upon us. He uses regulations. Congress is left out.
