The news outlets of this country are no longer un biased distributors of the news, factually, telling the who, why, what, where, when and how, they have all become the properties of the Corporate Monolith and they only give out the facts according to the doctrine that is set by the New World Order made up primarily of the elitists of the world and their stooges, our elected officials. Face facts, the money it takes to run for office in this country today would be the budget of most small nations. The only way anyone is going to get elected under these circumstances is to become their pawn in their grand scheme of things, and which folks, doesn’t include the average, everyday person. The poor and the middle classes are simple their pawns, pawns which they have easily manipulated in the past and will in the future, by spoon feeding them only the tidbits of information that they deem the public needs to know. Some are more blatant in their news manipulation than others, but they are all guilty of it. Here at EYEONCITRUS.COM, every effort is made to cut away their pasteurized news and give you the facts. And in that effort, we need contributors to assist us, everyday, please email us with your news, and if you like we will grant you access to post right here! Help us, help you and the rest of humanity avoid the sheeples sinkhole of no return.
It goes back to 1985. The tax cuts of Ronald’s Reagan early years, combined with his aggressive defense buildup, produced a growing budget deficit that eventually prompted passage of the Gramm-Rudman-Hollings Act. GRH set out a series of ambitious deficit reduction targets, and to put teeth into them it specified that if the targets weren’t met, money would automatically be "sequestered," or held back, by the Treasury Department from the agencies to which it was originally appropriated. The act was declared unconstitutional in 1986, and a new version was passed in 1987.
Sequestration never really worked, though, and it was repealed in 1990 and replaced by a new budget deal. After that, it disappeared down the Washington, DC, memory hole for the next 20 years.
What about the 2013 version? Where did that come from?
In the summer of 2011, Republicans decided to hold the country hostage, insisting that they’d refuse to raise the debt ceiling unless President Obama agreed to substantial deficit reduction. After months of negotiations over a "grand bargain" finally broke down in July,Republicans proposed a plan that would (a) make some cuts immediately and (b) create a bipartisan committee to propose further cuts down the road. But they wanted some kind of automatic trigger in case the committee couldn’t agree on those further cuts, so the White House hauled out sequestration from the dust heap of history as an enforcement mechanism. It would go into effect automatically if no deal was reached. More HERE!
Physicians and patients can study any number of report cards that grade the nation’s hospitals. One comes from a healthcare quality reporting group called Healthgrades. Last month, it released its list of 262 hospitals with the lowest risk-adjusted mortality and complication rates for 27 procedures and conditions involving Medicare patients.
These 262 hospitals, representing 5% of the 4500 hospitals evaluated by Healthgrades, posted an aggregate mortality rate for 18 procedures and conditions from 2009 through 2011 that was 30.9% lower than that for all other hospitals. Healthgrades estimates that if the remaining 95% of hospitals had performed just as well during this time, more than 164,000 Medicare patients might not have died.

Abdominal aortic aneurysm repair, coronary angioplasty and stenting, sepsis, bowel obstruction, pneumonia, and neurosurgery are among the 18 procedures and conditions that figure into the mortality rate score. Healthgrades weighs complication rates for hip replacement, back and neck surgery, carotid surgery, and 4 other procedures.
Some hospitals, Healthgrades notes, perform better than others in only a few clinical specialties. In contrast, the 262 hospitals that earned the Distinguished Hospitals Award for Clinical Excellence from Healthgrades demonstrate high-quality care across a broad spectrum of specialties, according to the group.

The Healthgrades award is supposed to help patients choose a good hospital. Depending on where they live, however, their choice may require an airplane flight or a long car ride. There are no Clinical Excellence award-winners in Alabama, Alaska, Washington, DC; Maine, Mississippi, Nevada, Rhode Island, Vermont, or West Virginia.
