Death camps are coming for the unclean unvaccinated.
They’re coming for you next: A Louisiana hospital system, Ochsner Health Systems, has informed its employees that they will be fined $100 per salary check for having an unvaccinated spouse on their health plan.
From the memo sent to all employees:
New in 2022: Ochsner is implementing a new Spousal COVId Vaccine Fee as part of its 2022 medical plan premiums. This means, if a spouse/domestic partner is covered by one of our medical plans in 2022 and unvaccinated against COVID-19, a $100-per-pay-period fee will apply.
The chutzpah and irrationality of this policy is really beyond words. Aren’t you supposed to be protected from COVID if vaccinated? If so, what risk is there to the company’s employed if their spouse happens to unvaccinated?
The company could claim that this $100 fine per paycheck is to cover the increased costs for treating these unvaccinated spouses, but on what basis do they have for establishing that number? I can see none, especially since almost no healthy people actually die from the Wuhan virus. In most cases an unvaccinated person will simply quickly recover (as we do with the flu), and not need any significant medical treatment. Furthermore, that unvaccinated person will now have natural antibodies, and will be far less likely to get sick again from COVID compared to the vaccinated, thus likely be saving the company some medical cost.
Charging employees $5,200 per year (assuming they issue weekly paychecks) for these costs is thus clearly political and not economic. The company wants to punish employees who do not obey its orders, even if those orders are not based on any rational facts.
It appears however that some of Ochsner’s employees are unwilling to obey. The article gives one example of a medical doctor who intends to defy their edict. To quote his tweet,
So #OchsnerHealth will terminate my staff privileges at their Kenner facility where I have been on staff since 1987 & paid rent to them for 21 years. I am not turning in my health info or vaccine status to their admins.
I could retire now. But now…NFW
Hopefully we might also see some lawsuits down the road. At a minimum we should see this company suddenly discover it has a staffing shortage because many of its employees will leave for another job rather than have their spouses be forced to take medicine they do not wish to take. Absurd policies like this must be resisted hard, by everyone.
In the end, such policies are dividing our society into two classes, the privileged vaccinated and the oppressed unvaccinated. Such a division is unhealthy, unjust, and based on an irrational ignorance of facts. Sadly, it is the direction we are going. As I have said repeatedly, the next steps will be isolation, then arrest, then death camps, to keep these unclean unvaccinated individuals away from the clean and pure.
All based on an irrational fear of a disease that in the end is really not much different than the flu. And if you don’t believe me, consider this minor fact stated by Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) in his questioning of Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra at a hearing yesterday
You presume somehow to tell over 100 million Americans who survived COVID that we have no right to determine our own medical care.
That’s right, 100 million Americans have survived COVID. That’s almost one third of the country’s population. Obviously, the Wuhan virus is not the “deadly” disease that news outlets and Democratic Party politicians keep saying it is. The only people it is deadly to are the old and sick, just like the flu. For 99% or more of the population it is relatively harmless, just like the flu.
The only reason we are not responding to it the same way as with the flu, with reasoned actions designed to protect that vulnerable population while letting everyone else continue their normal and free lives, is because radical and power-hungry Democrats like Xavier Becerra want to use it as hammer to smash any opposition to them.
Its the flu, people. Get over your fear and live again. And stop letting these thugs tell you what to do.
