Since he won’t give them gay marriage, Barack Obama, MD is giving gay activists something almost as bad. And he’s killing two birds with one stone by using a sop to them to speed ObamaCare’s enactment. It’s disturbing . . . if only people were paying attention. Well, they weren’t paying attention when President Bush put this absurdity into motion. Obama is just finishing the job.
Dr. Obama has decided that AIDS is no longer a communicable disease of any significance. And he’s signed an order that will overturn a 22-year travel and immigration ban on those with HIV or AIDS. Obama announced on the eve of Halloween that he’s going to impose this scary measure, next year (a scary measure President Bush put into play). The order is set to be signed by our quack-medical-expert-in-chief, today. And he’s doing it to increase the burden on our healthcare system and force us to sign up for his prescription.
This means that HIV-positive people can get visas for entry into the U.S., green cards, and, ultimately, citizenship. It’s a sweetheart deal and measure not taken for many others who have illnesses and diseases that are no more communicable than AIDS, but with less active and vocal political activists behind those illnesses. Do we really have an interest in spreading more disease in America? Well, we do . . . if someone WANTS TO HASTEN THE SPEED OF GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTHCARE.
I did a little research into the proposed changes Obama pushed, and they’re fairly ridiculous. Plus it has ties to ObamaCare. Ironically, the Centers for Disease Control has the information listed under “Global Migration and Quarantine.” So the U.S. is supposed to encourage HIV-positive migration to our shores and quarantine this disease here? Sure looks like it . . . all in a bid for ObamaCare.
The language of the CDC proposed removal of the HIV Entry Ban contains these gems:
1. HIV infection would no longer be included on the list of “communicable disease of public health significance”.
Really? Then, perhaps we should stop the billions in politically-charged federal aid that goes to scientific research for a cure of this newly “non-significant” public health issue. If it’s no longer “of public health significance,” why are we funding the research?
2. Testing for HIV infection would no longer be required as part of the U.S. Immigration medical screening process.
3. HIV infection would no longer require a waiver for entry into the United States.
HIV Economic Model
The objective of this model is to evaluate both the potential number of HIV-positive immigrants to the United States and the health system cost over time, given a change in regulation.
So, why are we letting a big group of diseased people onto our shores when we need to develop a huge economic model to project the increased cost they’ll put on our health system over time?
One word: ObamaCare.
We aren’t going to be equpped to handle these people, most of whom won’t have insurance but do have a pre-existing condition (HIV), which will prevent them from getting it. And the government will have to fund their healthcare. But the government can’t do that, unless “everybody’s in” a/k/a ObamaCare.
Oh, and before you praise President Bush, he signed legislation, last year, lifting the HIV/AIDS travel ban. But Obama signed the final rule putting it into effect.
BTW, I predict I’ll get the usual hate-mail and hate-comments from gay activists. But they’ll be on hypocritical ground. You see, as I’ve noted here before, AIDS was originally called GRID–Gay-Related Immunodeficiency–but gay activists got mad. So the politically-correct scientific world changed the name to AIDS–Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome–trying to make us forget how the “Acquired” part of the disease happens. Gays and the media told us AIDS was “everyone’s disease.” But more than a quarter century later, it still remains what it was in America: the disease of gays, intravenous drug users, and others who sleep with the first two categories (plus a few innocents who unfortunately got tainted blood transfusions).
So don’t send me hate mail saying I’m prejudiced against gay people because I don’t want diseased aliens entering my country. Remember, GRID, er . . . AIDS, was supposed to be “everyone’s disease.” Right?
