Lifeline Screening Is The Answer For Many People For Improved Health

Most of America does not see a doctor on a regular basis, so disease and health problems in many cases are not evident soon enough to take action to prevent their manifestation. Lifeline screening provides medical screening tests at discounted pricing.

The Life Line Screening are available through medical channels such as hospitals and stand-alone testing facilities, but not normally in doctor’s offices. Having such screenings can be instrumental in the discovery of potentially life-threatening diseases so that action can be taken early on to effect a cure.

There are three basic scans that occur, the first one being the ultrasound screening scan. This is essentially the same type of test given to pregnant mothers to determine whether they are going to have a baby boy or girl. Sound waves are sent into the body to reveal the organs in real time. With this test, it is possible to see if there are any blocked arteries. It can test for arterial disease. It also does a bone scan to test for osteoporosis.

The second scan is a finger-stick blood test that produces a full lipid blood panel. This measures the levels of HDL and LDL cholesterol. It also measures the glucose levels or blood sugar levels which test for diabetes. It can also measure indicators of cardiovascular disease and liver enzyme levels, all from a few drops of blood.

The final test is the limited electrocardiograph which measures for an irregular heartbeat, also called A-Fib, or atrial fibrillation. This is not normal, and it can be quite dangerous as it can cause blood clots, which in turn, can cause a stroke. This is a situation where a person’s doctor should be alerted immediately.

Once the results of the tests are in, they can be transmitted to the individual’s doctor for evaluation and further treatment if there is a need.

End Citizens United: The PAC That Wants to Amend the Constitution

End Citizens United, which is a political actions committee, wanted to play a significant role in the 2016 U.S. elections. Its aim was to funnel tens of millions into the election campaigns of Democratic candidates in Senate and House races with an end aim of bringing about finance reforms in the country.

 

The PAC, officially launched in August 2016, had managed to raise over $2 million mostly from small donors. It foresaw being able to rake in $25 to $30 million during the election cycle according to it Communication director.

 

How it Hopes to Achieve Finance Reform

 

The primary aim of this group is to amend the Constitution to reverse the Citizens United ruling by the Supreme Court. The ruling unleashed the use of dark money in US politics. By August of 2016, the PAC had gathered about 325, 000 signatures for its petition demanding that Congress amends the Constitution. The group then partnered with the “Ready for Hillary” group and rented its mailing list to reach out to over 4 million people.

 

The PAC announced that it had endorsed 11 Democratic candidates that include the likes of Sen. Michael Bennet from Colorado and former Sen. Russ Feingold from Wisconsin. While other groups have tried to address campaign finance, this PAC feels it is different since it is addressing the political side of things. Thus, there will be people in Congress who can stand up to Citizens United.

 

How It Spent Money

 

Part of the PAC’s plan entailed setting up an expenditure arm to back its preferred candidates through actions such as direct mailing, televised ads, or polling. While the Pac would love to see reform at the state level, its main aim is overturning the Supreme Court decision of 2010.

 

However, getting such an amendment passed in parliament is not an easy matter. In fact, not a single constitutional amendment has been passed since 1992. According to a campaign finance expert, the better route would be to get a favorable Supreme Court Justice who believed in the PAC’s cause. However, he did note the PAC played a major role in keeping the debate on campaign financing alive.

 

About End Citizens United

 

The group’s sole agenda revolves around the 2010 Supreme Court decision in Citizens United v F.E.C. That ruling established an idea that a corporation was a person. The result was that it opened the floodgates for billionaires and special interest groups. Consequently, they could spend as much as they wanted on campaigns without the fear of any consequences.

 

The PAC aims to fight this ruling until it is overturned. They aim to show that people at the grassroots level are fighting the influence of big money on American politics. As a result, they will have managed to dismantle a political system that they believe is rigged for billionaires.
