Death panel’s employees
28 Mar 2010
Should not look for or find pre existing conditions that will kill Americans as it is now illegal to do so.
US Death Panel.jpg
The employees at our “death panel” health insurance companies are ordered to find pre existing conditions for patients who are claiming insurance coverage so as the insurance company does not need to pay out.

The employees know that they will kill fellow Americans by finding or inventing pre existing conditions, which will deny patients hospital care they need.

How do the “death panel” health insurance companies get their employees to do this?

How did the Nazis get ordinary Germans to work in their concentration camps?

Yale University professor Stanley Milgram's work, published in 1963, recruited volunteers to help carry out a medical experiment, with none of the volunteers aware that they were actually the subject of a test.

A "scientist" instructed the volunteers to deliver a shock to an actor (hidden in the next room) every time the actor answered a question wrongly.

When the pretend 150-volt shock was delivered, the actor could be heard screaming in pain, and yet, when asked to, more than 80% of the volunteers were prepared to give further shocks, even when the "voltage" was gradually increased threefold.

Some volunteers were even prepared, when ordered by the “scientist”, to carry on giving 450-volt shocks when there was no further response from the actor, suggesting he was either unconscious or dead.

This may help explain why apparently ordinary decent American people would work to find pre existing conditions (real or fake) that can deny their fellow citizens desperately needed medical care that would save their lives.

The health insurance workers of America should refuse to look for or enforce the “pre existing condition” scam on their fellow Americans.
