Executive Order 12333 - This is part of what Snowden was saying
The National Security Agency has grown in power since the 9-11 terrorist attacks. The secretive spy agency has faced scandals during two successive presidential administrations, first under President George W. Bush, and now under President Barack Obama. But the NSA's bulk collection of Americans' metadata began long before that, at the beginning of President Ronald Reagan's administration. In 1981, Reagan signed Executive Order 12333, which mandates the duties and foreign intelligence collection abilities of the 17 intelligence agencies in the US. The order is the superior authority guiding intelligence operations, including the ability to function outside the confines of a warrant or a court order upon approval of the attorney general. RT's Ameera David looks at how Executive Order 12333 has changed the face of government spying over the last three decades.
Reagan First to Nationalize Healthcare
By the mid 1980s, so-called patient dumping had became a major concern. The practice involved hospitals transferring patients in need of medical attention to other institutions to avoid footing the bill, or even discharging them before they were properly treated. One influential study of Cook County, Ill., which contains Chicago, found that patients transferred because they lacked insurance were twice as likely to die as those treated at the transferring hospital. The vast majority of these transfers were for the hospitals’ financial reasons, even though it delayed care and jeopardized patients’ health. Physician organizations had policies in place mandating that hospitals treat everyone “regardless of race, creed, sex, nationality, or sources of payment for care,” as the bylaws from the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Hospitals read, but without the force of law behind them, they were often ignored and people went without care.
In 1986, Congress passed the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act, which contained the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act. The law requires hospitals to treat patients in need of emergency care regardless of their ability to pay, citizenship or even legal status. It applies to any hospital that takes Medicare funds, which is virtually every hospital in the country.
