10/10/09 - EasyOpinions

Quip: Reduced deficit. Yay!   By increasing taxes. Boo!   And $829 billion more spending. Bummer!

Obamacare Bails Out Medicare

"Healthcare Reform" is a huge tax hike plus rationed medical services.

ObamaCare and the Doctor
08/08/09 - EasyOpinions

Dr. Zane F. Pollard tells about the frightening current reality of Medicaid, and by extension the future ObamaCare.

Medicaid pays for medical services to the poor, and in this case to poor children who face vision impairment or blindness. Regardless, Medicaid denies and delays their care.

Consider that Medicare/caid are intentionally underpaying for the medical care that they mandate.

The government is proud of how they are negotiating lower prices for Medicare/caid, but these are still going bankrupt due to exploding costs.

Hospitals are caught in the middle. They survive by raising prices on the insured sick, who can pay. Then, the government blames the insurance companies for raising premiums to cover the increasing prices for insured hospital care. Doctors are forced to refuse treating Medicare patients because they actually lose money on each patient while becoming subject to bureaucratic control for receiving Medicare payments.

Boston Medical Center Sues Massachussetts Medicaid
07/16/09 - The Boston Channel

Boston Medical Center says the state is underfunding the hospital by $181 million annually by failing to cover the cost of care for Medicaid, Commonwealth Care, and uninsured patients.

Boston Medical Center CEO Elaine Ullian: "This institution was and remains an enthusiastic supporter of the state's health care reform law. But it should not and cannot be financed on the backs of the poor. We hope our suit serves as a cautionary tale to federal policymakers as they take up national health care reform."

Health-Care Reform: A Better Plan
08/7/09 - Washington Post by Charles Krauthammer

Krauthammer proposes a practical approach to reforming healthcare regulation.

[edited] Our healthcare system is extremely high-quality, but inefficient, and therefore expensive. Today's ruling Democrats propose to fix it with 1,000 pages of complexity.

They promise that this massive concoction will lower costs. Their solution is mandates on employers, individuals, and insurance companies; allocation formulas; political payoffs; and myriad regulations and interventions. It creates a Rube GoldbergFrom the link: Rube Goldberg (1883-1970) was a Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist, sculptor, and author. He is famous for his cartoon contraptions using an elaborate set of arms, wheels, gears, handles, cups, and rods, put in motion by balls, pails, boots, bathtubs, paddles, and animals. These contraptions do a simple task through an extraordinarily complicated sequence of interactions. system that multiplies current inefficiencies and arbitrary rules. This will produce staggering deficits, less choice, and lower-quality care. That's why the administration can't sell Obamacare.

My plan. Strip away current inefficiencies before remaking one-sixth of the U.S. economy. There are just two parts: radical tort reform, and severing the link between health insurance and employment.

I disagree that U.S. healthcare is inefficient. High costs are the result of:

  • Too much testing due to the legal liability lottery.
  • Cost-shifting onto the insured to pay for those who won't or can't pay. The government won't fully pay for its health mandates, forcing up costs and insurance rates for everyone.
