60% of Firms To Kill Health Insurance Or Charge More Under Obamacare
A majority of small business owners and manufacturers are mulling drastic changes to comply with Obamacare, with 21 percent set to drop health insurance to workers altogether and 38 percent planning to make employees pay much more.
In a poll done for the National Association of Manufacturers and National Federation of Independent Businesses, 59 percent said that they will have to consider changes once the full law kicks in because increased costs will jeopardize their operations. According to the poll, 67 percent expect Obamacare to raise healthcare costs.
The fears about spending more on health care are adding to growing concerns among small businessmen and women about staying in business, said the poll from Public Opinion Strategies.
Pollster Bill McInturff noted that the combination of a bad economy, greater regulations and increased economic uncertainty have forced 24 percent of the firms polled to lay off workers, 23 percent to tap their own savings to stay open and 11 percent to kill health coverage for workers.
"The climate in Washington is a concern to them," said McInturff. Dan Danner, president of NFIB added: "Why would I invest in this environment?"
Those polled were so down on President Obama and Congress that many said they wouldn't start a business today. Asked if they would start a new business, 55 percent said no. Among the reasons they cited were high taxes, health care costs, regulations and an uncertain economy.
Said McInturff, "The data paints a bleak picture, with a majority of respondents saying in the last three years, the national economy is in a worse position for American businesses and manufacturers." What's more, he found, businesses see little evidence that the economy will brighten soon.

November 2012: Roger Corman presents, "WALKING OFF WITH YOUR MONEY AND HEALTH Part II".
And bring your Own popcorn, because that FREE Government brand, ..... well, .....
Notice the J&J popcorn Package Labeling states right at the top:
Contains No Active Drug
And Yet, consumers are to believe that Risperdal will make them 'Mentally Healthy'.
If Risperdal made people 'Mentally Healthy' why do Doctors need to be told there's No Risperdal in the package? Wouldn't the experts prescribing it want to be as 'Mentally Healthy' as J&J would have everyone Else believe Risperdal will make Them?
You see, J&J can't even label a bribe the size of a bag of popcorn without Admitting that there Is No 'Mental Health' in their Risperdal, ..... because the lowlifes pushing it wouldn't Eat that popcorn if it contained J&J's Lobotomy in a pill, Risperdal.
Evidence For The Neurotoxicity of Antipsychotic Drugs: Dr Grace E. Jackson
And That, is how the whole scam continues to function.
Doctors who know Full Damn Well what their garbage drugs are hide behind the Sgt Shultze Defense, because if they Admitted that they Do know what their garbage drugs are, they'd be Out of Business and headed to Jail in droves.

Brain Damage Caused by Neuroleptic Psychiatric Drugs
In the past two decades, countless medical studies have shown that use of neuroleptic psychiatric drugs (also known as antipsychotics) is associated with structural brain changes, especially when taking high dosages for a long time. These brain changes can include actual shrinkage of the higher level parts of the brain. The shrinkage can be seen in brain scans and autopsy studies. In response to industry defenders who claim that this shrinkage is from the "mental illness," studies show neuroleptics lead to similar brain changes in animals. While the medical side of large libraries has this information, the public media side of the library does not. In other words, the public, patients and their families are not being informed about what medicine has long known.

- A Conversation With Nancy C. Andreasen
- The New York Times reports an extremely important discussion with psychiatrist and neuroscientist Nancy C. Andreasen. In he conversation, Prof. Andreasen speaks out about her findings that neuroleptic psychiatric drugs (also known as "antipsychotics") are leading to significant brain atrophy -- or shrinkage -- in patients.
- Robert Whitaker on Neuroleptic "Brain Damage" Debate
- In the "climate crisis" controversy there are deniers, people who are putting out misinformation to cloud the debate about the greenhouse effect. The same thing is true in the debate about brain damage caused by the neuroleptic drugs, also known as antipsychotics. Some scientists, instead of warning the public about the many studies regarding massive brain changes induced by neuroleptics, are hypothesizing - based on fragmentary and contradictory research - that neuroleptics somehow help prevent brain damage. Here Robert Whitaker, in his Mad in America blog, analyzes some of these claim as aired on the PBS national television show, PBS.
- Permanent muscle twitching from antipsychotics: Tardive Dyskinesia and Tardive Dystonia
- It's been known since the 1950's that the family of psychiatric drugs called antipsychotics -- also known as neuroleptics -- can lead to involuntary muscular movements that can often be permanent. Among these are the "TD's," which stands for both Tardive Dyskinesia and Tardive Dystonia. Since the 1990's, the psychiatric industry has reassured the public that newer neuroleptics cause far less TD. However, now that the data is in, more recent medical studies show that the rate for TD caused by newer antipsychotics is "more similar" to the rate by the older antipsychotics than the the medical field generally believed. That means that the mental health industry has falsely reassured millions of people since the 1990's that their risk of TD is lower than reality. TD can range from mild twitches, to extremely disfiguring spasms.
- Archives of General Psychiatry: Neuroleptics Shrink Brain Volume
- An article in the February 2011 Archives of General Psychiatry, "Long-term Antipsychotic Treatment and Brain Volumes" by Ho, Andreasen, et al. describes a study that points to antipsychotic drugs as a major cause of brain shrinkage. The study found that over 7 to 14 years, "More antipsychotic drug treatment, including duration and intensity, was linked to greater declines in brain volume. Severity of disease, alcohol and illegal drug use had no effect."
- Journalist Robert Whitaker blogs here on Psychology Today web site about what he calls the "bomb shell" of researcher Nancy Andreasen: That neuroleptic (antipsychotic) psychiatric drugs can lead to brain shrinkage of the frontal lobes, the part that makes us human.
- Psychiatrists often argue that to prove "brain damage" from a psychiatric procedure, whether psychotropic drugs or electroshock, we'd have to prove masses of brain cells dying. Whether or not there are studies about certain psychiatric procedures leading to mass brain cell death, here is one of the latest theories about the mechanism of brain damage following enormous blasts from "improvised explosive devices" to soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. It turns out that brain damage even from a large bomb can result in far more complex changes than cell death to one of the most complex networks in the known universe: the brain. Excerpt: "During a blast, a quick pressure wave rips through the air; the question is what happens when that wave meets brain tissue. Parker says many people assumed that blast-induced TBI damages the brain by ripping small holes in brain cells, causing them to die. He had a different theory: that the mechanical forces of a blast might trigger a chemical shake-up within the cells, initiated by proteins called integrins at the cell surface."

- People diagnosed with dementia are especially sensitive to neuroleptics (also known as antipsychotics). In a way, these folks are the 'canary in the coal mine,' because an antipsychotic can cause rapid and significant brain changes, including neuroleptic malignant syndrome (which can be fatal). Especially hypersensitive are those with a variety of dementia where the brain has something called "Lewy Bodies" (which are visible under microscopic examination of the brain. More than one millions Americans have Dementia with Lewy Bodies, or DLB. Here's a UK General Practice Notebook plainly explaining the dangers of neuroleptics and dementia. These dangers can apply to everyone, but they are especially pronounced with people who have DLB.
