Armand mentioned in text below and Anthony in video above are unrelated ~ but the commonality of death by bureaucratic bean counting and bureaucrats playing God is similar... Anthony Stokes in video above did eventually get a heart and so far several biopsies show no rejection. Imagine doctors telling former Congressman Philanderer Anthony Weiner he cannot have a heart because he screws around too much? Our worst politicians go to the top of transplant lists - the rest of us can easily end up like Armand & family from California (read below)...



INPUT: The average age at which current U.S. retirees say they actually ... The average non-retired American currently expects to retire at age 66, up ... as per www.gallup.com/poll/162560/average-retirement-age.aspx

 

OUTPUT: Average death age, United States – 79

 

Senators, Congressmen, Cabinet Officials and News Pundits talk incessantly about “the broken social Safety Net” that needs "reform". There always has been, is and will continue to be those who pay into our “broken system” and then die before collecting one penny of “their benefits”. Others work and pay in for life, then retire and collect for 2-3 years, then die. * The state pockets the difference for decade after decade * AND ** keeps claiming the system is not solvent **.

 

Case study, one man’s “experience” with SSI/SSD:

 

Armand was entrepreneurial, a small business owner who was made to pay extra taxes as a penalty for being self-employed. Numerous laws dictated that he paid employee payroll taxes; that he did not collect Disability Insurance like his employees could have, etc.

 

Armand had insurance, some money in savings and checking and earned very well – he sold extreme high-end collectible guns to collectors. Then he had a heart attack and rapidly used up his insurance benefits, checking and savings. Armand’s wife went to the Social Security office and discussed his case with social workers. Meanwhile, the hospital put him on a heart transplant list and asked, “Who is paying for the heart transplant”. No one person seems to be at fault; on the other hand the hospital officials stewed, hemmed and hawed over dollars. The Social Security/Disability persons and agencies seemed to stall, not quite grasp the meaning of needs a new heart now, etc. Armand and his wife had the impression that “Social Security” was a bank that only took deposit but balked at making payouts.

 

Finally, the Federal Government decided enough people had died and not withdrawn their S.S. $ that the Feds indeed could purchase a new heart and surgery. The hospital did the surgery successfully and then Armand had a new heart. Then the doctors and Federal Government started arguing over heart transplant anti-rejection meds and antibiotics. Armand needed these drugs daily, but the hospital officials and Federal workers argued over this while Armand became weaker and weaker. Armand died at home with no money to buy the anti-rejection meds. The Federal Government paid a hospital $150,000 to do a heart transplant (after much bureaucratic bickering). Neither the government that paid $150,000 nor the hospital that received the $150,000 saw fit to purchase Armand’s non-existent anti-rejection meds. But the Social Security Administration did two things to help Armand and his family:

 

1)    They agreed Armand needed and the Feds could afford to pay for the special meds – after he passed.

2)    They sent Armand’s wife and kids a $255 check to help purchase a coffin.

 

The right wing loves to come up with stories of how this low-life or that “cheated” the Federal system. These stories never include the deaths of those like Armand – who paid into the system, trusted the system – and died after being cheated out of  $400 dollar a month heart-transplant anti-rejection meds.

 

Where does all the “died before collecting benefits” money go? This is the very big “cheating the system” issue that the Beiner and Obama never discuss. Whether one is talking Social Security (as is), or ObamaCare, or some future “reformed” social or health system – the government will never discuss those who pay in and then die – amounting to trillions of dollars. Their excuses for “change” or “reform” always create an even bigger glut of unaccounted for cash – somewhere and pundits claiming "the systems needs to collect more and pay less. All those extra tax dollars Armand paid... for being bright, creative and hiring a few people – those very paid into the system tax dollars helped kill him at age 48. Hearing Bain Capitals Hermann Munster (Romney) and Northwestern Mutual’s Eddy Munster (Paul Ryan) use the word “Entitlements”... Try and imagine what Armand's wife and kids feel when they hear a corrupt trillionaire blathering about "entitlement heart transplants" and "entitlement anti-rejection medicine!"

 

Armand paid taxes through his nose, so that when he needed it, his heart was “an entitlement” and his heart anti-rejection meds were “an entitlement”. But the $255 to buy one-brass-handle on his coffin was sent with no argument at all. Only the Federal government could turn a heart-transplant and the meds that go with post-surgery into “entitlements”. Whose money is it they pay the so-called “entitlements” with? Rothschilds? Romney’s? Obama’s? These jaded politicos have completely forgotten all the millions of dead Americans who paid that money into the system.

 

The http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-2JwyFRlaks system Obama has created is a mirror twin of the system that killed Armand. Many Americans fill their heads with Hubris notions of owning Armandi or driving Lexus or Jaguar – but what of owning a brand and dieing off as fast (more rather than less fast) as Libyans. In the life span “food-chain”, America has far more in common with Libya than it does with Macau or Hong Kong (whose people vastly out-live us).

Most of the countries whose residents outlive us have 100% free medical care. Most of the retirees in these countries do not have parasite health care companies and parasites feeding of off the “entitlement” money put in to a retirement pool by said residents. What actually needs to be fixed in America?

 

Health and Retirement Parasitism, Banking and Military-Security Parasitism.

 

Government in America is increasingly enforcing its will by gunpoint. As such, the old buzzwords (freedom and democracy) are “code words” that actually mean “Kleptocratic Duopoly” and “Fascist Bankarchy”.

 

Armand’s body was incapable of growing a new transplant heart and his glands were incapable of producing anti-rejection enzymes. In the same way, Obama, Beiner, Paul Ryan, Elizabeth Warren, et al are incapable of “reforming” a parasite government into a non-parasite government. Parasite multinational companies are incapable of transplanting “new hearts” into themselves. Wellpoint and Aetna are mostly capable of one thing – getting and keeping patients money. Government is mostly capable of two things: - getting and wasting taxpayer money.

 

Those who root vigorously for the red or blue arteries of a parasite after being lied to in repetitive, meaningless speeches will frequently end up where Armand did. When Dick Cheney needed a heart, nobody said, "God good, man, you are older than dirt". But Armand got nothing but crap from a hospital and a government when he needed a heart. Cheney ha never publicly said whose heart he "bought" ...just kidding. But how did a man born 1/30/1941 end up at the top of the heart transplant list? Did the Federal Government wait until Dick Cheney died before approving the anti-rejection meds? Sometimes I wonder if Arman got the heart of a 60-year-old diabetic alcoholic and Cheney bought received the heart of a 14 year old boy "mysteriously" hit by a car the same night Cheney was "waiting" for a donor. It is a sentiment, not an accusation - a sentiment that Washington CIA Warmongers get great cardiac care that is not available to mere honest, hardworking family men who pay their taxes diligently. The former class burns through it like gas on a bonfire to wage war; the latter class lay in bed at home wondering why Medical paid $150,000 for a heart but is too cheap to cough up the anti-rejection meds that protect the $150,000 heart from dying.

Prior to death by bureaucracy, Armand lived pretty decently and lacked practically nothing. But he died nearly a pauper with various bureaucrats saying “they understood” but simultaneously making decisions that put him in a grave at 48. In those days he rooted red team, his wife blue team. But it was the entire, parasitic “purple” organism that cut him a $255 check for some dirt on the coffin…
