The “man-made global warming” con is not the first false science racket that the Left has imposed on the citizens of the USA – and forced them to pay for.
This video, just published (on September 4, 2015), is titled The Alternative Medicine Racket: How the Feds Fund Quacks.
Which means: how you the tax payers came to fund shamans, mountebanks, and snake-oil salesmen.
The racket was launched by two members of Congress, both Democrats: Tom Harkin, US Senator from Iowa 1985-2015, and Berkley Bedell, also from Iowa, member of the US House of Representatives 1975-1987.
It’s amazing and depressing to learn how quickly the universities caved to the demand that they should teach magic as if it were respectable medical practice; and how quickly the hospitals let the quacks in to play with seriously ill patients. It happened because of the lavish – and ever increasing – funding by which the voodoo was promoted by the Democratic Party.
Finally, pretend-healing was included in the Affordable Care Act – aka Obamacare. As the video reveals, the “controversial section 2706” of that nefarious piece of legislation – sneaked through Congress and passed by sleight-of-hand – requires that quacks be paid on the same scale as properly qualified doctors.
