Back to healthcare…

Where do members of Congress get their healthcare?

Who stands between a patient and his/her doctor right now?

Yes this is a setup…be prepared.

    I’m not sure what you are referring to?

    The second question is addressing those who say “We don’t need some bureaucrat in Washington standing between a patient and his doctor; making decisions and rationing care.” So my question is “is there not already someone between the patient and doctor making these decisions and rationing care? Of course there is. Who is it?”

    We’ll get to the first question later.

    That’s just political rhetoric. Obviously there must be a system of checks and balances to ensure that a medical expense is warranted no matter who is paying. 41% of our health care is currently provided by the government. Medicare will be insolvent once the baby boomers retire and medicaid will be under funded. We will have to look at rationing and other alternatives when they come up because we need a safety net. Federal employees have their health care paid for by the government. They obviously have a vested interest in offering a competitive package. The question is who can deliver the most efficient and comprehensive health care. Government or private enterprise. We have already discussued free market alternatives to our current system (or at least I have presented them to you) so saying “it isn’t working now” doesn’t fly. The way it is set up now is missing a major component which is sensitivity to price. If you are not sensitive to price then the price will go up. You, Obama and the liberals on capitol hill think government can do this without a profit motive (provide health care cheaply and efficiently). I don’t.
