Because his weight would increase the cost to the government of providing his health care, the government told Albert Buitenhuis a chef, to leave. Despite losing 66 pounds Albert is being deported.
He weighed 352 pounds when he immigrated seven years ago and it took that long for immigration officials to finally kick him out of the country. Immigration is as slow as most of the government.
Albert weighs 286 pounds, slim compared to his 352 pounds before he lost 66 pounds but government ruled he was at “significant risk of Diabetes, Hypertension and Heart Disease” even though he has no symptoms.
He was just too heavy for government to provide health care benefits.
“It is important that all migrants have an acceptable standard of health to minimize costs and demands on New Zealand’s health services,” he was told.
If you thought it wasn’t America when you read he was being deported, you were correct. It was in New Zealand. (HERE).
The Obama Administration is welcoming heavy, extra heavy and even 6X too heavy people into America because of his plan to spend even more money to undermine everything American he can before he leaves office.
But Government Run Health Care is still run by government so the denying health care to people in New Zealand because it is too expensive to treat them is typical of a bureaucracy and is to be expected in America from the hated Obamacare.
Of course if you are getting free health care you don’t care about the costs but you should because Obamacare is rationed health care and the rationing depends on a government bureaucrat like Lois Lerner or Eric Holder who have been impeached by Congress for lying.
Lying or not, government is the health care problem that can be dangerous to your health especially to senior citizens who face expensive medical procedures because of their advanced age.
As President Reagan said: “Government is not the solution to the problem; Government IS the Problem”.
