If you have asthma stop ruining the environment



Everyday when I wake up and get a cup of coffee, I take some time and peruse the news.  Lately there has been no shortage of absurdities.  In addition to putting big weapons in the hands of drug cartels, shutting down medical marijuana to the sick and making fake green employers (Solyndra), the Obama administration is now pulling all the over-the-counter medication for asthmatics.

This maneuver will force asthmatics to purchase medication through prescription only which is considerably more expensive.  When you factor in the cost of going to the doctors on a regular basis to get your refills the costs really begins to soar.  Perhaps this is how Obama intends to get everyone on ObamaCare.  If we can no longer access OTC’s and we cannot afford to see a regular doctor monthly plus trying to afford the prescription inhalers, then we have little choice but to get on the program for socialized medicine.

Speaking as someone who does have asthma, I find this appalling.  Asthmatic attacks have  the potential to be fatal if medication or medical attention are not administered in time.  So, the administration is deliberating denying access to affordable emergency medication under the rationalization of “saving the environment.”  At issue is the use of CFC’s (Chloroflourocarbons) as the propellant to get the medication into the lungs quickly.   Asthmatic inhalers are the latest intrusion by the United Nations.  Obama has capitulated to International pressures trying to “protect the earth.”  Truthfully, the science regarding global warming is iffy at best.  I believe in climate change, but as a trained scientist, I don’t subscribe to this notion that humans are causing global warming.  It’s been the biggest scam ever thought of and has made people like Al Gore very rich men.  The amount of CFC’s that are produced by these life saving inhalers is an insignificant amount when compared to a very active volcano.  In fact, all of our emissions are insignificant when compared to nature itself.  And you can’t control nature.

Politicians who bow to the demands of the world’s climate alarmists have long sought various means of reducing anthropogenic CO2 emissions. To date, the measures they have proposed have been rather mundane, focusing primarily on reducing emissions associated with one’s household activities and transportation habits. For example, we have been encouraged to replace our incandescent light bulbs with more energy efficient ones. We’ve also been asked to participate in municipal recycling programs, to drive less, to car pool or to utilize public transportation.

As the government has intruded on all of our lives, why not push for mandated healthcare in the name of the environment.  In other words, we can’t destroy the environment so you will have to get some kind of insurance if you want to live.  This is completely ludicrous and I am so tired of doing what the rest of the world wants so they will like us.  I don’t care if France or Indonesia or Norway like us.  They sure like our money and they sure like our military support.  It’s time we took our sovereignty back and began worrying about our own citizens.

Of course, this environmental balderdash might just be one be cover up for big pharma giving massive political donations to Obama’s re-election campaign.  There is much more profit in asthmatics using prescription meds rather than OTC’s.   Whatever Obama’s motivation is clearly it is not in the best interest of Americans.

The new rules by the FDA will have no effect on jobs, but will wind up being very costly to many of the low-income folks who rely on OTC inhalers to treat their Asthma.

Is this really the time to force poor Americans to stop treating their symptoms if a prescription and doctor visit are beyond their reach when a cheap and safe OTC alternative is widely available?  This rule will result in a reduced quality of life for many working class Americans.  I know people who suffer from moderate Asthma but cannot afford regular doctors visits and prescription medication.  I suppose the only solution for them will be to stop living so much.

As I have been watching and reading the news today, I have noticed that there are very few segments on this story.  It would seem the mainstream media is putting this on the back burner or it is just getting buried with the other scandals that are developing.  So, I am hoping my readers will pass along this link and get the information out.  This is an outrage and needs to be told.  We need to put the pressure on this administration to stop this kind of nonsense.
