Pennsylvania’s Governor Wolf and his Secretary of Health Dr. Rachael Levine forced nursing homes to accept COVID-19 patients. No fool is Rachael. She moved her mother who is in a nursing home into a hotel. Rachael knew how this bad movie was going to end. She only has to look north and east to her partners in crime in New York and New Jersey who implemented the same perverse policies.
But Wolf and Levine are not done yet. In order to deflect from their own stupidity they will have you outraged about the care the nursing homes offered. Even though the homes begged that they not have to take these patients. Add fuel to this fire is that many of these same nursing homes are the dumping ground of society. Medicaid patients. The financial reimbursement rate from the State has not come close to covering the actual costs of their care.The homes knew that they were not possibly equipped to care for these patients.
What to do? Why deflect attention. Go after them criminally… bankrupt them. Then where will these souls go?

PA says no PPE for hospitals doing elective procedures.
May 5, 2020.
HARRISBURG — The state has told hospitals it will not provide them with masks, gloves and other protective equipment if they choose to resume elective surgeries, as the priority shifts to nursing homes, where most of Pennsylvania’s COVID-19 deaths have occurred.
Secretary Rachel Levine said at a state Senate hearing Monday. “In the past, that has gone to hospitals. And we will give out to hospitals when necessary now, but the focus … is on long-term care living facilities.”
Levine said Monday that, while the state will still assist hospitals in hard-hit areas like Philadelphia, those that resume elective procedures will be cut off from the department’s stockpile.
On March 20, Levine ordered hospitals to cancel or postpone elective procedures… These procedures include heart catheterizations, joint replacements and colonoscopies.
I can vouch that the list of stopped procedures doesn’t even come close. All testing unless the patient was on death’s door was stopped. Cancer screening, eye exams. I could go on but you got the drift. These decisions will ultimately bankrupt many hospitals as well. On to government taking over healthcare and people will wonder how it happened.
What do the citizens say about all of this nonsense?
The rally Monday was organized by state Sen. Doug Mastriano, who says Dr. Rachel Levine hasn’t properly protected the state’s vulnerable older population.
Protesters call for Pennsylvania health secretary to step down
Yesterday I posted my experience of what life was like these days in a Pennsylvania retirement community in American Thinker. Wander over for a day in the life of living under the draconian rule of the democrats after they seeded these communities with COVID.
Because this is an over 55 retirement community, it comes complete with what is called continuing care, home care, assisted living, and what is known as a nursing home. All the mandates the government imposed on nursing homes fell upon the entire community as well as the retirement management wanting to keep us “safe,” they say.
I can be charitable and say what is being done is in our best interest. If not, I can say it is a cruel measure being perpetrated upon the voiceless.
Other than this all is well in the swamp.
