Unequivocal support for medication-assisted treatment from HHS Secretary Price (from Change.org)
A community of over 600 practitioners and researchers have signed a letter to ask Secretary Price to unequivocally support medication-assisted treatment for opioid use disorder.
Dr. Price made concerning statements about medication-assisted treatments for opioid use disorder during a visit to West Virginia. Dr. Price stated that these treatments are “just substituting one opioid for another.” These views reflect a critical misunderstanding of the value of these treatments and damage a public health response to the opioid epidemic.
Signatories include some of the most widely recognized experts in the field of addiction medicine, including deans of schools of public health, editors of major journals, authors of landmark studies, and leaders from the world of practice and advocacy.
We stand together to express our commitment to science-based approaches to treatment of opioid use disorder and to secure a commitment from the Trump Administration to advance the policies that we know will help to stem the tide of this devastating epidemic.
We ask Dr. Price and the Trump Administration to unequivocally support medication-assisted treatment, and to embrace public health strategies that we know can reduce opioid overdose deaths.
I bet they all do want some government money to test and treat the drug addicts. None of that fattens their pockets does it. Are the 600 practitioners willing to do this out of the kindness of their hearts? (Hell NO they’re NOT)
Let’s get a bunch of liberals together who want to feed off the government’s money and get rich off it. Sure they are going to be all for it. Why can’t they fund their own studies and come to a solution?
Made USA, that used to mean something to us who live in the USA! It meant supporting USA jobs and companies before buying it from Japan or China. Walmart once had that as their slogan, and President Trump used that in the campaign, America First, Buy American Made Products, etc. My grandfather always told me to make sure the automobile that I drove was American Made! Unfortantantly that died with him and Sam Walton.
I live in Florida and see people buying Oranges from out of state. I think WTF are they doing? Why? We produce some of the best bottle water in the world at Zephyrhills, but people still buy water from Mexico.
I still buy America made products whenever it’s possible. Most of the country buys whatever is the cheapest. They then cry that all the factory jobs have moved elsewhere. Dollars talk if we would all use the “Buy USA Made” you’d see those jobs come back to America. Trump is correct, America First is our Motto!
Bring it back… the job you save may be your own!
Feminism = the advocacy of women’s rights on the basis of the equality of the sexes.
I believe that feminism is dead, it does not exist anymore.
Who Are Some Feminist:
Hillary Clinton – multi Millionaire (was almost President of the US. Was secretary of state and a US representative.
Oprah Winfrey – Billionaire (owns her own TV network)
Madonna – multi-millionaire (singer and big mouth slut)
What does equal rights mean? Can they make as much money as men? YES! Can they join the military and be in combat arms? YES! Can they vote, own property, have free speech? YES, TO ALL! So, what rights do they want?
Also, I’ve heard several feminists use the point of, “our insurances won’t pay for birth control”. How is that wrong? They don’t pay for men’s condoms either. Oh, “they pay for Erectile dysfunction”. True but that isn’t birth control, and if the government paid for women’s sexual function disorders we’d be bankrupt. JK Giving someone a long maternity leave would destroy a lot of small businesses. Most companies to give maternity leave, it’s called a vacation.
It’s been proven that the there is no equal pay between sexes is a myth, but still used by you feminist. If anything, women use their gender for advancement. I’ve heard women say, if they don’t promote me I’m suing them for discrimination. I’ve heard employers say, we best hire the woman, with less qualification, so we don’t get into any type of trouble. So, they were hired because of gender and NOT qualifications.
What is total bizzaro is that Feminist seem to be for all the Muslim immigration? I wonder if any of them have an idea of what Sharia Law means. That would push the feminist movement back a few hundred years.
So, Feminist jump on another ship and fight child hunger or something and leave something along that isn’t real anymore.
First Amendment of The U.S. Constitution states; Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
There has never been such a thing as freedom of speech in America. In order to speak freely, you first had to have access to a printing press, a newspaper, a radio or a TV station. And if you could gain access you then you had to get past the editors of the media. Only an elite group of people ever did? You had the articulate and well-behaved representatives of ordinary people. But ordinary people themselves never had a chance to speak publicly and openly.
Not until now that is. Today we have the internet revolution, that is led by a ragtag army of bloggers? It has given us all a chance to be irreverent, blasphemous, and ungrammatical in public. We can reveal secrets, blow whistles, spill beans, speak our minds, or just make stuff up. (hopefully NOT)
Of course, the old elites donít like it, actually they really, really hate it. Blogs are shut down left and right, and bloggers are silenced, reprimanded and fired from their jobs. Suddenly modern liberal society reveals a repressive face few of us knew existed.
Are we still FREE
Should we behave ourselves? Should we fall silent? HELL NO! Letís call them on their hypocrisy and stupidity. Letís demand that modern liberal society lives by the principles it claims to embrace. Bloggers of the world, unite! Fire up your keyboard and blogs! You have nothing to lose but your gags! …retake our Freedom of Speech!
