Will Doctors Refusing Service For Unvaccinated Patients Also Refuse Treatment For Obese People?; No Jab, No Medicare?-How far are they ready to go? And other C-Virus related stories

Will Doctors Refusing Service For Unvaccinated Patients Also Refuse Treatment For Obese People?
South Florida doctors want you to know they’re upset with the careers they’ve chosen.
On Monday, a group of 75 physicians staged a protest over unvaccinated COVID patients seeking hospital care.
“We are exhausted,” Dr. Rupesh Dharia of Palm Beach Internal Medicine told a local NBC affiliate. “Our patience and resources are running low.”
While it appears no patients were denied treatment from the group staging this week’s demonstration (yet), doctors elsewhere have taken the leap to refuse care for those who decline to vaccinate themselves from COVID-19. A North Texas hospital flirted with the idea in an internal memo if intensive care units (ICUs) reach capacity, and an Alabama doctor wrote to patients that starting in October, their practice will “no longer see patients that are not vaccinated against COVID-19.” --->READ MORE HERE
No Jab, No Medicare?
How far are they ready to go?
The federal government has become so desperate to get Americans vaccinated against COVID-19 that it plans to hold Medicare and Medicaid payments hostage.
On Wednesday, Joe Biden, the virtual president, announced that nursing homes will receive federal money for Medicare and Medicaid expenses only if their employees are vaccinated.
The "Delta variant", it appears, justified the step.
"I’m using the power of the federal government as a payer of healthcare costs to ensure we reduce those risks to our most vulnerable seniors," Biden said. The Department of Human Services will issue the mandate, which will take effect in September, in conjunction with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Biden made his announcement less than two weeks after a left-wing think tank made a wider-ranging proposal along similar lines. On Aug. 6, three members of the Center for American Progress proposed linking Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement for all health-care providers to staff vaccinations. The three made their argument on the center's website. --->READ MORE HERE
