Cigarette smokers will have to pay much higher premiums for health care under the Affordable Health Care for America Act (a.k.a., «Obama-Care»), and may become the main focus of Obama-Care’s «End of Life Care Panels» (a.k.a., «Death Panels») to put a majority of smokers on anti-depressants or SSRIs. First, cigarette smokers will be given higher Obama-Care premiums which will give the doctor an opportunity to prescribe anti-depressants or SSRIs. Anti-Depressants or SSRIs change the chemistry of your brain and can have side-effects if you stop taking them. The idea is to never take them.
The questions are, how many cigarette smokers will quit and how many seek medical help, and how many cigarette smokers will resort to anti-depressants as they quit smoking? The FDA has developed an acronym called (SAD), or «Seasonal Affective Disorder,» and now prescribe anti-depressants for people experiencing depression when the seasons change. The FDA is looking for any way possible to prescribe every person an anti-depressant.
Furthermore, cigarette smokers will have to prove that they have quit smoking. A simple hair test can show signs of smoking up to 90 days; in some cases as much as up to a year.
Finally, you cannot own a gun because you have used anti-depressants and are mentally unstable. Obama-Care will apply the same concepts to any «unhealthy» item such as soda, alcohol, and marijuana. The government will tell you what you can and can’t eat while forcing you to pay for it.
