Romney Abolition Of ObamaCare Would Kill 80,000 Americans Over 8 Years

By Dr Gideon Polya

03 October, 2012

A major difference between the US presidential candidates is that Obama values American lives vastly more than Christian Zionist and Apartheid Israel lackey Mitt Romney. Thus, as outlined below,  Mitt Romney's policy of removing 30 million Americans from ObamaCare will kill over 10,000 Americans each year, kill more than  40,000 Americans over 4 years, and kill more than  80,000 Americans over an 8-year 2-term presidency.

In 2011 58% of 312 million Americans (i.e. 181 million Americans) had health cover i.e. 312 million - 181 million = 131 million didn't (see "Health Insurance", Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Health_insurance ).

1 million Americans die preventably each year under a Neocon American and Zionist Imperialist One Percenter regime, the breakdown being 443,000 (smoking), 300,000 (obesity), 75,000 (alcohol), 70,000 (air pollution), 45,000 (lack of health cover), 33,000 (motor vehicles), 31,000 (guns), 30,000 (suicides, 20% being US veterans), 21,000 (under-5 year old infants), 21,000 (opiates from US Alliance including Australia restoration of the Taliban-destroyed Afghan opium industry from 6% of world market share in 2001 to 90% today), and 15,000 (homicides). One should note that some of these categories overlap and  some categories (e.g. deaths from smoking and obesity)  won't respond immediately to action taken now after decades of inaction (see "1 million Americans die preventably each year under racist Neocon  & Zionist rule”, Bellaciao, 18 February 2012: http://bellaciao.org/en/spip.php?article21696 ).

Of these 1 million Americans who die preventably each year,  according to Harvard Medical School  45,000 die from lack of health insurance each year (see “New study finds 45,000 deaths annually linked to lack of health coverage”, Harvard Gazette: http://news.harvard.edu/gazette/story/2009/09/new-study-finds-45000-deaths-annually-linked-to-lack-of-health-coverage/ ).

Obama added over 30 million Americans to health cover, this fortunately being backed by the US Supreme Court. However, Christian Zionist and Racist, Religious Right Republican (R4)-backed  Mitt Romney has vowed to reverse ObamaCare (see  "Romney vows he'll nix health care law", The Gazette, Montreal , 30 June 2012: http://www.montrealgazette.com/health/Romney+vows+health+care/6867219/story.html ).

According to a USA Today editorial:  “Of course, the court's 5-4 decision doesn't ensure that ObamaCare will survive. Republicans are even more determined now to kill it, and GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney quickly renewed his promise to undermine it on his first day in office. But the decision does guarantee that the law's fate will be determined in the political arena, not the legal one… Republicans have some good ideas, such as limiting malpractice awards that cause doctors to over-test and over-treat. But they have yet to come up with a comprehensive plan that would extend coverage to anywhere close to the 30 million or more people who would gain coverage under ObamaCare. The only serious alternative Republicans offered during the health care debate fell pathetically short: The Congressional Budget Office found that it would cover only an additional 3 million people”  (see “Editorial: Supreme Court ObamaCare ruling benefits millions”, USA Today, 28 June 2012: http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/news/opinion/editorials/story/2012-06-28/Supreme-Court-ruling-ObamaCare/55902476/1 ).

Racist, Religious Right Republican (R4)-backed, Christian Zionist Mitt Romney's policy of removing 30 million Americans from ObamaCare will KILL an estimated 45,000 x 30 million/131 million = 10,305 Americans EACH YEAR or about 4 x 10,305 = 41,220 over one 4-year term and 8 x 10,305 = 82,440 over an 8-year,  2-term period.

Cause and effect instructs that Americans voting for Mitt Romney will be inescapably complicit in the killing of over 40,000 fellow Americans over 4 years or more than 80,000 fellow Americans over 8 years through lack of health cover.

Of course the 495,000 American deaths from lack of health cover since 9-11 represent  just one part of the carnage inflicted on the American 99% by the neocon and pro- Zionist One Percenters, of which a huge component is due to the Republican-initiated War on Terror. The pathological mendacity of the Zionist-beholden American Mainstream, the Zionist-beholden US One Percenters, and the Zionist-beholden, Racist Religious Right Republicans (R4s) is revealed by a science-based quantitative analysis of the 9-11 atrocity and the consequent US Alliance War on Terror.  Thus science, engineering , architecture, aviation, military and intelligence experts say that the US Government was responsible 9-11 (very likely with Israeli involvement),  key science-based evidence being the  discovery of unexploded nano-thermite high explosive in all samples of the World Trade Center (WTC) dust examined using  the latest chemical physics techniques by Dr Niels Harrit and colleagues (Chemistry Department, 9-Nobel-Laureate University of Copenhagen) (for details and documentation see “Experts; US did 9-11”: https://sites.google.com/site/expertsusdid911/ ).

The post-9-11,  Zionist-backed US Alliance War on Terror  is in horrible reality a War on Muslims, a war on Muslim women and children, and more specifically a 21st century war on Arab, Muslim, Asian and non-European men, women and children that has been associated, so far,   with 9.5  million Muslim deaths from violence or from war-imposed deprivation, the breakdown being 2.7 million (Iraq), 5.6 million (Afghanistan), 1.1 million (Somalia), and 0.1 million (Libya) (see “Muslim Holocaust Muslim Genocide”: https://sites.google.com/site/muslimholocaustmuslimgenocide/ ). The reparations bill at the current Value of a Statistical Life (VOSL) of US$7 million per person is a staggering US$7 million per person x 9.5 million persons = US$66.5 trillion  - by way of comparison the US national debt is currently US$16.2 trillion,  the US GDP is US$15.1 trillion,  and the accrual cost of the US War on Terror has been put at about US$5 trillion (this having huge implications for future funding of American health care). .

American military deaths in this Muslim Holocaust and Muslim Genocide total 4,486 (in Iraq ) and 2,130 ( Afghanistan ) (see “icasualties”: http://icasualties.org/ ). However it is estimated that about 50,000 US veterans have committed suicide since 2001 and that of 30,000 Americans who commit suicide each year about 6,000 are US veterans. Thus Secretary Eric K. Shinseki : “Of the more than 30 thousand suicides in this country each year, fully 20 percent of them are Veteran suicides. That means, on average, eighteen Veterans commit suicide each day” (see “Remarks by Secretary Eric K. Shinseki, Departments of Defense-Veterans Affairs, Suicide Prevention Conference, Washington, DC, January 11, 2010”,  United States Department of Veterans' Affairs”, 11 January 2011: http://www.va.gov/opa/speeches/2010/10_0111hold.asp ).

The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UN ODC) has stated clearly that  "the United States saw 38,400 deaths from illicit drug use in 2006, corresponding to a drug-related mortality rate of 182 deaths per one million inhabitants aged 15-64" (United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UN ODC). “Regional Overview”, World Drug Report 2011: http://www.unodc.org/documents/southerncone/Topics_drugs/ WDR/2011/Regional_overview_ENG.pdf  ). 60% of these drug-related deaths are due to opiates and of opiate-related deaths 90% are due to US restoration of the Taliban-destroyed Afghan opium industry to about 90% of world market share i.e.  0.6 x 0.9 x 38,400 = 20,740 pa and 20, 740 pa x 11 years = 228,000 US opiate drug deaths since October 2001 due to US restoration of the Taliban-destroyed Afghan opium industry. The corresponding figures for the World, Australia, Canada  and the UK are about 1 million, 3,800, 10,000 and 18,000 such deaths, respectively, linked to the US Alliance and Australian invasion and occupation of Afghanistan (for details and documentation see “Afghan Holocaust Afghan Genocide”: https://sites.google.com/site/afghanholocaustafghangenocide/ ) .

Americans who vote for Mitt Romney will be complicit in Mitt Romney's policy of removing 30 million Americans from ObamaCare that will kill over 10,000 Americans each year, kill more than  40,000 Americans over 4 years, and kill more than  80,000 Americans over an 8-year 2-term presidency – by any reasonable definition an anti-American policy that can be described as one of depraved indifference, mass murder and treason.  Please tell everyone you can – peace is the only way but silence kills and silence is complicity.
