End-of-life provisions dropped

with 2 comments

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) announced that the end of life provisions have been dropped from the bill.

That’s odd. They’ve been telling us that there is no such provision:

The provision would create no such panel. It calls only for a “consultation between the individual and a practitioner.”

This is a start. Now let’s see if we can get them to drop the other provisions.

All of them.

  1. So much debate is going on pointing out how bad the collectivist approach of the Obama/Democrats will be for our health care, but where is the advocacy of a workable solution?

    Here is a brief outline of where we need to go with US health care:

    The Modern Health Care Solution

    We need to reset our health care system back to a free-market, patient-driven system. Every other successful part of our society runs this way- why not our health care for goodness sake?! We need:

    1. Market-based pricing of health care. We need medical Care/Service/Procedures priced up front like everything else in our society- not the price/cost black-boxes of today’s employer and government-subsidized health care.

    2. Minute-clinics and similar no-appointment, transparently-priced clinics are going in the right direction of delivering this concept:

    3. Just like with the fair, portability of pre-tax 401k’s, we need fair, portable pre-tax health savings accounts for everyone to save their own money over time, make their own decisions on health care, and pay it with their own money.

    4. Make health care ‘insurance’ back into actual insurance. Couple health savings accounts with high-deductible catastrophic health insurance policies that people buy like they do for life insurance or car insurance.

    The above approach gives everyone the access, proper control, and choice over their health- not the opposite helplessness dictated by some far away, faceless bureaucrat.

    Just saying that a provision is dropped does not
    mean that the problem is not somewhere else in the
    bill and that there is always the question of who
    gets dumped overboard when there is no more money
    or the money is not paid. Which of your personal friends, relatives, etc. would you sacrifice for the
    sake of the government running your health care with
    you having no choice at all ? Worst case example is that money from the Cash for Clunkers is so slow in being paid that there are dealers who are still waiting for the dollars and New York has stopped the program there. No way to run anything. Government at work right now is so un-impressive.
