The Obamacare Secret Pricing Swindle

March 2, 2017 Tucker Carlson, Fox News 0

All plans to amend, repeal or replace Obamacare are based on the false idea that there is an insurance problem when the real problem is billing. Healthcare pricing is based on how much can be extracted from an individual or an insurance company, so prices fluctuate widely. People cannot shop for a better price because price comparison is prohibited. In fact, pricing is considered to be a trade secret that is protected by law.

Arizona’s Silver And Gold Bill Undermines The Federal Reserve

Precious metals appear to gain in value when Federal Reserve notes depreciate in value, making the taxable gain fictional. If the bill becomes a state law, it will encourage the use of precious metals as currency and will open the door to undermining the Federal Reserve’s monopoly on money.
