Cancer Patient Who Wrote to Obama Will Not Lose Home, May Get Aid

Obama has no problem misleading America as long as the citizenry is effectively duped into supporting the worst entitlement bill in the country’s history.  Purposefully omitting the fact that health care costs are rising, rising premiums are just a symptom, demonizing the insurance industry’s razor thin margins (1-3%), and now.. embellishing the story of a cancer patient to play on ...

Health Care Reform's Impact on Rising Premiums

Obama and Congressional Democrats are pushing health care reform as the answer to rising health care premiums.  The populist approach to forcing through unpopular legislation is certainly the method of operation of the administration and they are continuing to use it by demonizing insurance companies with their massive 1-3% profit margins… massive. Why are premiums rising?  Greedy insurers?  Nope, health ...

Honesty in Health Care Debate

Reading the stories in the news about health care for the last few weeks, it had become obvious that no one has a grasp on where we really are, what the real problem is or how we should solve it.

The Rising Cost of Congress

For the last year, we have all been beaten over the head repeatedly with the notion that health care costs are rising so fast that families can’t afford their insurance.  Is anyone applying the same formula to Congress?  They don’t mind spending our money in a care-free manner.

Medicaid an Anchor Around The Necks of States

Medicaid and Medicare were held up as the government-run successes that prove that we can afford universal health care and that it works.  In North Carolina and Oklahoma, severe Medicaid budget overruns are being reported and the blame is partly that enrolllees are using more medical services.  Of course they are, because it’s free.  That is precisely the problem with ...

Double-Standard or Outright Dishonesty?

The “double-standard” has been thrown around lately as pundits and analysts consider moves by the present White House to put their policies in place.  A double-standard just implies unfairness, and life just isn’t fair.

How The Republican Health Care Plan Died

I spent my Saturday evening listening to live coverage of floor debate in the House of Representatives.  The difference in philosophies is great and obvious.  The opposition view is a request to disavow the great experiment in freedom that this country was founded upon.
