How money and political corruption affects our health/healthcare ?

In a recent interview, Governor Christie stated that if elected President of the US… that he would turn the clock back to the “good ole days” of the war on drugs. According to this author, Gov Christie has a vested interest in how healthcare is provided, who can provide it and who can receive it…  ANOTHER Attorney/Politician practicing medicine ?

  1. 1-I was just wondering what exactly was fused if the patient’s xrays and other imaging didn’t show any cause for his pain? Not saying he couldn’t have been in pain.

    2-Also wondering how during a nationwide epidemic of pain medication abuse and addiction, disabled and terminal cancer patients are having extreme difficulty in obtaining any at all? I would call an EXTREMELY bizarre dichotomy.

    3-As far as Chris Christie goes? From May 19th [CNN]
    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie stressed Monday the need for increased funding and support to beef up the U.S.’s intelligence capabilities to prevent terror attacks, putting it this way: “You can’t enjoy your civil liberties if you’re in a coffin.”

    What a guy. I would never consider voting for someone who used tactics like Christie’s to scare citizens into giving up their liberties. Grease-balls like Christie scare me more than any terrorist ever could.

    Criminals are those prosecutors who charge doctors w/ homicide when patients ignore the doctor’s instructions, the pharmacist’s instructions, and their own good sense when ingesting these pain meds with other depressants including alcohol. Drug tests, pill counts, pharmacy restrictions, I mean what more do you want? Should patients be required to come to a clinic everyday and receive their pain med and ‘dose’ in front of the nurse like an addict at a methadone clinic? That is probably the next step.


    Before authorities caught up with him, Dr. Richard Kaul performed back operations for years in same-day surgery centers around North Jersey, even though he was an anesthesiologist, not a surgeon trained to operate on spines. Patients went to him to treat their pain, but some described horrifying problems following his operations…

    Remarkably, before all this, Kaul had been convicted of negligent manslaughter in England after a patient he had anesthetized died while having a tooth pulled. After his conviction in 2001, he was sentenced to a six-month suspended jail term. The British medical board stripped him of his license, concluding that the “gravity of the offense” was so serious the only recourse was to “erase” Kaul from the registry of doctors.

    But that didn’t stop Kaul from moving to New Jersey and establishing a practice treating mostly car accident victims and people with out-of-network coverage in their health insurance plans…
