The debate on “health care” has been raging for years, yet to this day politicians have been unable to enact a far-reaching health care program. For this I say “thank God”! There really are two directions we can go with fixing health care, one being a government run program commonly called “Universal Health Care” and the other being to embrace a “free enterprise” or “market driven” approach to health care.
Something missing in the debate is the voice of “common sense” which would tell us that since NO Government run program has ever worked properly in all my years on this earth we should not expect one to work now. Also in my life here on earth I have lived and worked in a market driven health care environment and it worked just fine.
Unfortunately the debate as we witness it through the news media has been one-sided telling us “we need a government solution” to health care, and as we move forward we will explore why this is. But if we don’t strengthen the voice for a free enterprise/market driven health care system we face the prospect of losing more than a workable health care system. We face losing the freedoms granted us in our constitution in all areas of life and this is fact, not a scare tactic. Since no one else seems willing to step forward to lead the effort for a workable health care system we are creating “Dr. Health Care’s Army”. BECOME INVOLVED!
The alternative scares the devil out of me and we are seeing it unfold before our very eyes. This so called “economic bailout” before Congress now includes a provision to create universal health care NOW without the benefit of debate. Politicians seem to have decided they cannot pass a standalone comprehensive health care program and are willing to force it down our throats incrementally. Let me give you an example of the nonsense in the bill being jammed down our throats.
The government will establish yet another bureaucracy for the purpose of “means testing” when a senior citizens needs medical service. The doctor must examine the patient and submit his findings to the new board for approval. If the government determines the cost of treatment is too much to justify the expenditures on a citizen too old to be productive, the payment for service will be denied.
In fact Tom Daschle, one of the architects of this abomination, has stated publicly (and here I will paraphrase) “when a person gets old they should expect to die because everyone does sooner or later and just accept it”. The time for action is NOW and it is in our collective interest to work together. I know of no other way than to create a forum such as “Dr. Health Care’s Army” that keeps everyone involved.
Through “Dr. Health Care’s Army” everyone who cares about this country’s future can become involved by joining free of charge via email. We will also regularly release articles designed to help everyone understand what health care really is and information will be concise, broad in scope and easy to read. This information will go to members and as a general release through the Internet.
When action is necessary to help our cause everyone will be notified and asked to do their part because collectively we can SUCCEED. We are prepared to take this as far as our resources and energy take us and to this end everyone who can afford to help financially will be given the opportunity.
Please understand that financial participation is not a requirement to join. This effort is not a “business” per se, it is a passion driven by a desire to do the right thing for my children, grandchildren and however corny it sounds this greatest of countries we live in here on earth.
If we need to broaden our organization, or need to become a Political Action Committee, or a non-profit, we will do it provided the resources are available. Further, I intend to be an advocate for “doctors” and for “small businesses”. These two groups are at a distinct disadvantage because of government incompetence and arrogance never seen in my lifetime.
First, doctors are faced with the prospect of becoming an “employee” of the government and this will definitely deter any competent person from even considering becoming a doctor in the future. For small businesses the financial burden of providing health care insurance for their employees is more than most of them can afford and be successful. We need to help them out!!
