Bush Health Care Plan Opposed By Democrats – Could Benefit The Self Employed Or Those Not Covered

Bush Health Care Plan Opposed By Democrats – Could Benefit The Self Employed Or Those Not Covered

Katherine Baicker

(Best Syndication) There are some concerns that President Bush’s new health care initiative to modify the tax code could benefit the wealthy. The President is proposing a plan that could benefit people and families who sign up for the Health Savings Accounts (HSA).

The administration has favored HSAs because it would “level the playing field”. According to Christopher Lee of the Washington Post, instead of leveling the playing field the plan could benefit the rich. Health economist, Mark B. McClellan said "I think it (the Bush plan) would be a big push for HSAs."

McClellan believes HSAs would be a good thing though. Other experts disagree. Traditional health insurance plans charge a $20 so-payment for visits to the doctor. The higher deductible plans require the insured to pay hundreds or thousands of dollars out of pocket before insurance kicks in.

The revelations that Eli Lilly concealed the side effects of Zyprexa and promoted the drug for unapproved uses is not newly discovered misconduct. It is a persistent pattern of conduct indicative of a nasty habit that needs breaking.

After the secret company documents were leaked to the press last month by attorney, Jim Gottstein, the focus has been on Zyprexa; but a year ago it was Evista, and before that it was Prozac.

In the case of Evista, approved for treating post-menopausal women with osteoporosis, Lilly concealed data that showed an increased risk of cancer. On October 24, 2002, the Cancer Prevention Coalition issued a press release that said Lilly suppressed evidence that women taking the drug were at an increased risk of developing ovarian cancer.

The 41-year old accused kidnapper, Michael Devlin, did not fit the typical profile and this may have kept police and family members from finding two victims. Devlin did not have any criminal record and even joked with police who frequented the pizzeria where he worked for 25 years.

The bizarre case has baffled community members who wonder how this could have been overlooked for so long. Even more baffling is the fact that 15 year old Shawn Hornbeck had access to the internet and did not try to escape after more than 4 years of captivity.

In fact, according to a report from the Associate Press, Shawn had been stopped by authorities on three occasions for being out beyond curfew. Officers gave the boy a ride home, unaware of Shawn's real identity.

The affidavit is a written version of sworn statement: a voluntary oath before a notary public, judge or commissioner of deed, all of whom are authorized to administer oaths. Both the affiant and the authorized officer are required to sign the affidavit.

The affidavit is also a useful tool in rectifying inadvertently wrongful data.

A simple example of an affidavit is the “Affidavit of Two Disinterested Persons” purposely to facilitate the correction of another person’s name. These two (2) particular disinterested persons issuing the affidavit are usually older close acquaintances of the other person’s family.

California Attorney, Ted Chabasinski, is calling for the criminal prosecution of Eli Lilly executives for hiding the adverse effects of Zyprexa, based in part on articles last month in the New York Times which quote internal company documents that revealed that Lilly knew about the adverse effects for a decade but kept the information hidden.

Mr Chabasinski, appeared by teleconference in US District Court for the Eastern District of New York, on January 3, 2007, before Judge Jack Weinstein, on behalf of MindFreedom, a non-profit human rights organization, in response to a motion by Lilly basically filed to keep the incriminating information hidden, to defend the public's right to know the contents of the secret Lilly documents concerning Zyprexa.
