Jennifer Lawrence Speaks Out About Corrupt Government

Jennifer Lawrence is taking a stand against a government that she believes is being run by people with too much power and money, and no interest in the well-being of its people.

The 26-year-old Passengers actress took to Facebook on Thursday (April 20) to share a video in which a mother opens up about her 10-month-old daughter receiving open-heart surgery at St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach, Fla.

The mother was reportedly told that the surgery was necessary and that it would be “a walk in the park.” However, her daughter sadly died due to surgery complications.

It was revealed that the hospital has financial incentives for performing certain types of surgeries – like open-heart surgery on children – so they push for the operations despite being told by experts that the surgeries are not in the best interest of the patients.

“I just watched this video from Represent.Us,” Jennifer wrote. “It’s incredible and horrifying. And it got me thinking: corruption affects all of us, but so many people don’t recognize it. We need to tell each other our stories. We need to show that everyone – our neighbors, our families, our community leaders – everyone we know is touched by corruption. I want to hear your story. How does corruption affect you? #WeDemandBetter Represent.Us/WDB.”

    The piece of crap that is 45 needs to go.
    Dr.’s have tried to mess with me, I don’t trust them at all. I’d rather die than have a bs surgery.

    Don’t be such an idiot. This has NOTHING to do with Trump. These practices have been in place for quite a while and Obama did nothing to stop them. Just because something may happen during his tenure does not mean that he is responsible. After all…Obama was still blaming George Bush on January 20, 2017 at 11:59 AM.

  • WStan

    This is unbelievable…as in cannot be believed. What doctor would ever say heart surgery is a walk in the park?

  • Conte435

    They are just stupid liberal troll that makes no sense. Because all they have is lies.
    As if President who’s been in office for 3 months has anything to do with how a hospital in a state is run.

    If there was federal blame it was probably because Obamacare, you stupid idiot troll.

    Blame Barry Hussein corrupt healthcare law he rammed down the US people.

  • Conte435

    This stupid celebrity and celebrity site with no statement from the Hospital or doctor imply with no evidence that a doctor who dedicated years to eduction so they can do life saving surgery on children would preform a needless operation because the Hospital would make few bucks.

    Why we have become such stupid society when we get ‘news” and “causes” which is about steering up emotion not reason from uneducated idiot celebrities.

  • Conte435

    Sure, because looks you need meds not sure about “surgery” maybe a lobotomy.

    of concern is how things get upside down. Machine sector is set to take off in the next 15 years with robotics and at the moment the manufacturing is so cheap that a kids motocross bike costs less than the health cover… “Pipe-up admin” “Denial of service” all sorts type exploits at the other end of the scale.

    Prior to obobamacare, all the experts were stating, if the government got out of the medical ruling kingdom, the medical insurance rates would decrease by $2B annually. Also, it would decrease the number of medical suits, saving another $2B annually. The government writes what Medicare requires and will pay for. As such, all insurance companies must comply with Medicare. Get the government controlled, and medical services would no longer require useless tests, and without the useless law suits, the medical staffs would not have to cover their rear ends with useless tests and bogus treatments.
