Health Care and Healthcare: Immoral and Unconstitutional | Dr. Deane Waldman’s

For decades, political pundits and the mass media have bombarded the public with a drumbeat of misinformation on healthcare. By the power of constant repetition and with dissent suppressed, these two falsehoods have become commonly accepted wisdom: 1.Health care is a fundamental human right.2.Washington will solve our healthcare crisis. Health care MUST BE a right! AfterContinue reading “Health Care and Healthcare: Immoral and Unconstitutional | Dr. Deane Waldman’s”

Vaccination Is Not EntireAnswer To CoViD

As the Pfizer-BioNTechvaccine is now being shipped out,and with Moderna’s mRNA vaccine about to achieve FDA approval,Americans begin tobreathe easier believing that vaccination isthe answer to our prayers, an end to the CoViD-19 nightmare. Suchconfidence is misplaced. Vaccination is part of the answer but not the complete solution. The goal of vaccination is to make all Americans immune toContinue reading “Vaccination Is Not EntireAnswer To CoViD”

Democrat Healthcare Promises are Another Fraud

On November 3, it was not only CoViD-19 but ongoing failure of our entire healthcare system that was foremost in voters’ minds. Close to 80 million Americans apparently believed Democrat promises they would produce a healthcare system we all want. Whether implementing Medicare-for-All (favored by Kamala Harris and Bernie Sanders), the Biden Healthcare Plan or some combination, Democrats promiseContinue reading “Democrat Healthcare Promises are Another Fraud”

Why Did I Get the Wrong Rx?

The reason you got a prescription for the wrong medication is simple. Your doctor did not choose it, someone who never heard your name and doesn’t know your medical history, that faceless person decided what medicines you take. These faceless, unseen doctors-without-licenses are government rule writers, insurance actuaries, and bureaucrats working for pharmacy benefits management (PBM). EveryContinue reading “Why Did I Get the Wrong Rx?”

Are U.S. Doctors ‘Free’ to Practice Medicine?

The title question might seem silly, even ludicrous. It is anything but. In the United States today, a truck driver is free to choose which gear to use going up a hill and at what speed to go down the hill. Accountants and lawyers are free to accept or refuse specific jobs and how toContinue reading “Are U.S. Doctors ‘Free’ to Practice Medicine?”

Healthcare and the Insurance Principle

Amidst all the talk about signing up for mandatory insurance (or failing to do so) through healthcare.gov, we have probably lost sight of what is really going on. I suspect that you, like a majority of Americans, think you buy health insurance so it will pay for your health care services and products. If so, I regret toContinue reading “Healthcare and the Insurance Principle”

Will Americans in 2020 Repudiate 1776?

Before the Revolutionary War, residents of the North American colonies were subjects of the British crown. They were entitled to as much or as little as the aristocracy allowed. Their living conditions and daily activities were dictated by the government. They paid whatever taxes were arbitrarily imposed by the crown. In 1776, the founding fathersContinue reading “Will Americans in 2020 Repudiate 1776?”

Thinking Systems Need Systems Thnking

After describing machine and complex adaptive systems, we define a thinking system with two unique, defining characteristics: having goal(s) separate from survival and the capability to innovate purposefully. Thinking systems always learn and are the only systems that can structure their own learning. Healthcare is a paradigm of a thinking system and is repeatedly plaguedContinue reading “Thinking Systems Need Systems Thnking”

Magical Thinkers in Washington

Predictions of cost savings through ObamaCare, like most liberal politics, were based on magical thinking. If they want something to be true with sufficiently intensity, liberals know it must be true. Small children are natural magical thinkers. Ask any psychologist, pediatrician, or parent. Magical thinkers believe that because they want it or can conceive ofContinue reading “Magical Thinkers in Washington”

More coverage doesn’t necessarily translate into better patient care

Everyone believes that the purpose of a healthcare system is to get the right care on time to the most people, and everyone is right. Where common wisdom goes astray is the presumption that coverage equals care. Most people think that having health insurance guarantees getting healthcare, i.e.,  1. Those who have coverage will getContinue reading “More coverage doesn’t necessarily translate into better patient care”
