How ACA Fuels Corporatization of American Health Care 27.11.2014 Truthout - All Articles
A new Harvard study has found that Americans' trust in the medical profession has dropped dramatically in recent years and lags behind that in many other wealthy countries. At the same time, doctors are becoming increasingly unhappy with our profession. In his new memoir, " Doctored ," Dr. Sandeep Jauhar eloquently explains why: More and more doctors are coming to view our profession as just another job. We now have a situation where patients are losing confidence in their doctors, while doctors are losing confidence in our ability to do the right thing for our patients. We have a health care system becoming more hostile to doctors and patients and more friendly to health care corporations. These trends are collateral damage caused by another trend: our increasingly corporatized, commodified and commercialized U.S. health care "industry" that is being put into hyper drive by the Affordable Care Act. The ACA is accelerating an ongoing wave of hospital consolidations and acquisition of doctors' practices ...

Some Immigrants Eligible For Social Security Under Obama Immigration Executive Order 27.11.2014 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
WASHINGTON (AP) — Many immigrants in the United States illegally who apply for work permits under President Barack Obama's new executive actions would be eligible for Social Security and Medicare benefits upon reaching retirement age, according to the White House. Under Obama's actions, immigrants who are spared deportation could obtain work permits and a Social Security number. As a result, they would pay into the Social Security system through payroll taxes. No such "lawfully present" immigrant, however, would be immediately entitled to the benefits because like all Social Security and Medicare recipients they would have to work 10 years to become eligible for retirement payments and health care. To remain qualified, either Congress or future administrations would have to extend Obama's actions so that those immigrants would still be considered lawfully present in the country. None of the immigrants who would be spared deportation under Obama's executive actions would be able to receive federal ...
