  • Let Them Eat Cake: Fire Charles Payne of Fox News 13 comments
    Jul 13, 2009 11:32 PM

    Health insurance executives purposely create policy to stall paying claims and stall approving medical procedures. Their strategy is to clog the system and do everything they can to sabotage doctors and customers. They hire lawyers to write insurance policies that are so complex intentionally making it very difficult to understand what is actually covered in your policy. They are gouging the public and making huge profits paying themselves huge salaries laughing all the way to the bank while people are dying. This is beyond greed, it is pure evil.

    Greedy lawyers have driven up malpractice insurance so high that you practically need to be a millionaire start practicing medicine.

    Why does this issue have to be so adversarial? We have to ask, who stands to loose if we design a medical system that is affordable? But I think it’s all a moot point because the people in control who could make a difference love money and believe they are superior human beings “Let Them Eat Cake.”

    I once heard the comment about people dying in Africa “it was not a successful famine” not enough people died. The bottom line, this is all about Darwinism, survival of the fittest. If you have bad luck and cannot afford health insurance, and have a major medical problem, too bad for you, you die. We are not civilized human beings, we are animals.

    This interview was disgraceful. Charles Payne should be fired! 

    Have a look at this Fox News interview with a socialist that wants free health care in America and the extreme bias pig interviewer employee of Fox News that would barely let the guy get a word in sideways, who only talked about how hard he works, his expensive cuff links and material things he wants, all the taxes he pays and to hell with people that are less fortunate. Instead of talking about what the solution might be, he just wants to perpetuate the unsympathetic bias that is pervasive in America regarding this issue.

    Author’s reply » It's your attitude I am talking about dude, you have no clue! I use to think like you, but now that I am sick I see the other side. Yes there are a few people that take advantage of the system so what, look at all the wall street creeps that steal millions like Bernie Madoff and others. I don't think anybody owes me, I ran 3 business' and worked all my life, now if I return to the USA and try to start a new life there no one wants to hire someone my age at 54 and self employment health insurance will cost me over $500 for minimal coverage, for good coverage $7-800 a month. We have plenty of money to spend on bailing out unprofitable companies and to build bombs and fund wars. But we are suppose to be one of the greatest nations in the world and can't design an affordable health care system for the citizens, give me fing break!

    You are a bitter angry man. Where's the anger coming from? Is it that he is sucessfull and your not? Is it jealousy? Why try and point the finger at Charles for societies issues? You have problems, jack.

    Author’s reply » You don't even know me so I don't see why you are saying such rude things about me and attacking me personally, Jack. If you would have seen the interview and how Payne conducting himself maybe you might have a clue. Yes people like Charles Payne worked hard and have become successful but their whole attitude is self righteous and without any idea about the big picture for humanity. It's the have vs the have nots, we got ours so to heck with you... Instead of trying to think of a way to make the world a better place for everyone. I just think there is a way to work together and not be so condescending against others with different ideas and philosophy. But greedy unenlightened people will continue to think they are right and unwilling to consider any concepts or ideas that don't fit in their neat little ignorant world.

    Author’s reply » Self righteous tea party fanatics will only continue to polarize and ultimately contribute to the self destruction of America. I pass on what Samuel Clemmons said that a Patriot is, “The person who can holler the loudest without knowing what he is hollering about.” You can see this proof in action at every Tea Party Rally today. This country is becoming more and more divided and Fox "News" with their chorus of tea party proselytizing fanaticism will continue to brain wash the masses. Now they want to privatize Medicare with a voucher system, in other words, bankrupt senior citizens. Everyone says America is the greatest country in the world, then why can't we design a system to lower medical costs and have it work for everybody and especially our older people who need it the most. We can't solve our problems by attacking each other, we need to totally redesign the system. I lived in Thailand for 4 years and they do many things there to keep medical cost low. They start training in high school for medical and dental. Plus there is no malpractice insurance needed and no huge lawsuit pay outs. There are many things we can do to make health care affordable here in America but it seems we're more interested in funding the military and building war machines instead of working with each other for the good of our citizens and humanity.

    "there is no malpractice insurance needed and no huge lawsuit payouts.".....there's the major answer for what's wrong with healthcare in the U.S. Go back to free market so people can know what they are paying for any given procedure, doctor's visit, etc. Nobody knows (or cares) anymore because some third party somewhere is paying the fill. The patient has absolutely no input!

    Author’s reply » Charles Payne Attacks Recipients of Anti-Poverty Food Programs (see complete article here: http://bit.ly/sMxuU5 ) Payne continues to demonstrate his bias and attitude of superiority: " Payne, in effect, dismissed the findings by the National Bureau of Economic Research that showed that such programs keep 1 in 6 Americans out of poverty, mostly the elderly, the disabled and the working poor. According to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, without those programs, the poverty rate would double".

    I worked in heath care for 30 years as a social worker and there is a big difference between not having insurance and not having care. NO ONE gets turned away-NO ONE.We gave away about 15 million a year in un reimbursed care every year. we had a good community and some help from the government but it was always a struggle.
    Sick children sneak across the border and get into Children's Hospital in LA and get free treatment wroth millions. that's millions of someone else's money. You can't give everything to everyone every time and expect to survive and that's what people want from medical care.
    25% of the people we took care of had no incentive or desire to take care of themselves. As far as they were concerend THEIR health was OUR responsibility.
    What can yu do when a person doesn't follow the medical care we set up for them and then come back to the ER in the ambulance again?When you can tell me the answer to that, you will have solved the problem of expensive medical care.
    Can you name another business where a person just takes what they want and then expects to take more. No foreclosures if they don't pay the mortgage. No bill at that fancy restaurant. Just pull into the station and fill the car up and drive away. No pain, no guilt, no responsibility. That's how a high percentage of people treat their health care. And every time they came back we had to admit them again and then the government wants to give us a fine because we had too many re-admissions.
    I'd like to see anyone run any other business with those rules....
