What´s the Alternative?
Weekly Standard, by Jeffrey H. Anderson & William Kristol

Original Article

Posted By:grace52, 4/4/2014 4:29:37 PM

The crowing by the Obama administration over getting 7 million people to sign up for mandatory health insurance—with some portion actually paying for it—will soon fade. The big picture will remain clear: Obamacare isn’t working. And Americans, who didn’t like Obamacare when the Democrats passed it four years ago, don’t like it now, don’t want it to remain, and doubt it can be fixed. But they also don’t much want to go back to the pre-Obamacare world. According to Real Clear Politics, a recent ABC News/Washington Post poll of registered voters was the 111th consecutive poll to find more opposition to Obamacare

Yeah, boys, we DO want to go back to the pre-O´tardCare world. And then get fedgov out of the medical practice tent entirely. Note that includes getting the fedgov out of the insurance regulation business. Not to mention keeping its nose out of state´s business and forcing hospitals to offer free care no matter what.

The whole ginned up ´48 mill w/o insurance´ brouhaha was just another version of the AGW / ´CO2 levels are too high we´re all gonna die´ hysteria to cover a power grab. I want to see those responsible publicly hanged.

There is no apparent alternative due to the liberal media suppressing all dissent. The alternative:

Once again we are being treated like idiots, like people who cannot objectively evauate options. Any viable alternative to Obamacare, would have to include the following:

1. TORT REFORM!
2. Insurance across state lines.
3. Decouple health insurance from employment.
4. Health Savings Accounts

Any proposal which does not include 1 through 3 is a non-starter.

Item #1 is why you´ll NEVER get meaningful health insurance reform from the lawyers and politicians who run this country!

If it can be repealed there are a few things that will HAVE to remain.

People who have enrolled will HAVE to be allowed to keep their coverage making it so the Insurance Company can only cancel it for non payment of premium. (Yes, this will stick them with the losses)

Cobra will have to be modified.

HSAs will have to be allowed and paying premiums from HSAs will have to be allowed.

Medicaid will have to be expanded and will cost us a fortune, but it may include a floor level of coverage for everyone.

It is STILL going to cost the Government a fortune and will put pressure on the deficit and on taxation.

We won´t be able to get out of it without rewarding the low income Americans, but if we are lucky we will not have to reward illegal aliens....keep our fingers crossed.

It´s not enough to come up with an alternative (and yes, a well-crafted alternative is needed because healthcare and health insurance were runaway freight trains headed for a cost crash even before this). Whatever the conservative alternative is, it needs a champion. Namely, an articulate spokesperson who can describe its features, explain the critical points of differentiation from the disastrous Obamacare, and attract the necessary coalition to move it forward as a replacement.

And there´s the problem. Today, the Republican Party is totally, hopelessly adrift with no such charismatic, articulate champion in sight. We´re being led by the political equivalent of the 7 Dwarfs (Weepy, Grumpy, Sleepy, etc.).

The BIG problem is selection against the companies. They cannot price insurance reasonably, it they are forced to take people with known conditions. It is a form of redistribution of wealth to force insurers to cover preexisting conditions. This needs to be done in a separate pool that is separately priced for these costs. It is not insurance.

Separately - health insurance should be a utility, like phones, electricity and gas. It is tied to the residence and the services are performed in the geographic area. Those who need to cross boundaries for extraordinary care can do so by purchasing a rider on the policy that allows this flexibility.

The government does not need to be in this business except to collect the funds and remit to the providers. There would need to be a common remitter.

The alternative is NO Obamacare. Having a discussion about how a non-Obamacare medical system could be improved or made better is premature. Obamacare has so screwed up the American system of paying for and delivering healthcare that there is no way to fix it or twiddle with it or fine tune it. Obamacaare must be REPEALED in its entirety. Then, once the system has normalized a bit, we can make some piecemeal reforms of the NON-Obamacare medical care system.

I just re-watched Ted Cruz, lawyer, on the 1 April Fox & Friends show (where he revealed his Winston Churchill tattoo). In citing the key elements in an ACA replacement plan, this Senator....for whom I have a very high regard...did not even mention tort reform. I´ve contacted his office, challenging him on this VERY GLARING OMISSION.

I understand that there have been several programs offered by the Republicans and some even passed the House. So, repealing and REPLACING Obozocare can be achieved. Of course, as #3 pointed out, if they don´t already contain some of the points #3 gave, especially tort reform, then it´s a non-started. And any plan offered must have input from the healthcare industry, insurance companies, and the public. The Republicans should already be working on just such a plan that can be used during the upcoming campaigns and be told to every one in the country.

While I like the suggestions of poster #3, I have a problem with "2. Insurance across state lines."

There are two components of that suggestion:

1) Cost of living. This is entirely dependent on the location of the medical provider. A New York City provider is paying much higher costs for the building and the employees than a provider in, say, Mississippi or Arkansas. The insurance companies should be able to cover the provider´s costs of maintaining a facility by charging more (or less) based on location, possibly by zip code.

2) State "mandates" The state legislatures have always had the ability to determine what types of care must be included with every policy sold within a state. If one decides they, personally, do not want to be covered for that particular condition, the consumer should be able to decline the coverage, with a positive declaration (or initial a box on the application) with the understanding that the coverage could only be added at a (open enrollment like) period once a year. So a single man could positively decline maternity care, and not have to pay for coverage he could never use.

I would also like to see the government out of the insurance business, except for military in the VA. Have all Medicare policies managed be an individually chosen insurance company (like Medicare Advantage). Medicare supplemental and even plain Medicare recipients could choose from a variety of policies, like MA beneficiaries do now, the claims would all flow through a fraud department before payment, and "Medicare" would become a payment support for the benefit, only, and the expedited payment system that allows so much fraud would be eliminated. This type of system might work for MedicAid, too.

Is KenyanKare here like herpes? Don´t know. It will take a different White House and a congress with gonads to overturn it. The one change I´d make to the health care system is to enable people to be treated at a cheaper rate if they sign a form wavering any malpractice lawsuits against doctors, hospitals, etc. A good portion of the cost health care is malpractice suits. This would force ambulance chasers like John Edwards to find real work.

President Obama has so far been a major disappointment to even his most ardent supporters, his approval numbers steadily falling to fresh lows. And the president is apparently such a disappointment, that the Billings Gazette in Montana felt compelled last week to apologize to its readers for endorsing him in 2008 over Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.

Rewriting History

Hillary Clinton will shortly release a memoir, Hard Choices, chronicling her tenure as secretary of state. If what she has to say in its pages resembles what she had to say from the stage at the American Jewish Committee’s (AJC) annual Global Forum on May 14—where she claimed undue credit for implementing sanctions against Iran—it’s worth setting the record straight now. In reality, the Obama administration, and Clinton’s State Department in particular, opposed, dragged their feet on, and sought to water down every piece of sanctions legislation introduced by bipartisan majorities in the House and Senate. With that history now being rewritten, let’s review the actual record.

Next month it will be 10 years since Ronald Reagan died at age 93. Next fall it will be 20 years since he withdrew from public view by releasing his handwritten letter announcing he had been diagnosed with Alzheimer´s disease, and 30 years since he was re-elected with 59 percent of the vote, carrying 49 of 50 states -- a political feat no one has come close to since. And it will be 50 years since his late October telecast for Barry Goldwater made him a national political figure.

What does America owe its veterans? Perhaps the best answer to this question I have ever seen came from a young woman named Julie Ponzi—wise beyond her years—in response to a review I had written of Karl Marlantes’s magnificent Vietnam war novel, Matterhorn. She observed that by providing a real understanding of war and its sacrifices, memoirs and novels such as Matterhorn make it possible for “our fighting men to finally get some genuine gratitude. Not sympathy or pedestals; but real gratitude.

   

 



 
GOP Committee Chairman

A Republican congressman bashing “crony capitalism” and “corporate welfare” is no longer a new thing. A Republican congressman actually trying to do something about corporate welfare, however, is nearly unprecedented. So it´s a sign that the GOP could go in a new direction when the Republican chairman of the House Financial Services Committee sets out to derail some of Wall Street´s favorite federal gravy trains and “reform the corporate welfare state.” Texas Republican Jeb Hensarling, who chairs the House banking panel, gave a call to arms at the conservative Heritage Foundation on Tuesday afternoon,

President Obama, during a fundraiser Monday night, chided Republicans for spending additional time scrutinizing his administration´s handling of the Benghazi terrorist attack and the implementation of Obamacare and blamed the GOP for Washington´s dysfunction. Obama is under pressure this week to formally address the problems at the Veterans Affairs Department after allegations of secret waiting times at VA hospitals that may have cost 40 veterans their lives. White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough appeared on the Sunday talk shows and repeatedly said the president is infuriated by the unfolding VA scandal “and I have the scars to prove it.”

I did not get to know Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki when we served together in the Obama administration, but in our limited interactions I liked him. He struck me as polite, smart, earnest and hard-working. Over time he resisted the ego-tripping that many agency heads find irresistible in Washington. Secretary Shinseki, however, has not been an agent of change. As his May 15 Senate testimony made clear, the management style which he brought with him—the only style he knows—is ill-suited for an agency that has serious management and integrity issues. Delegating and deferring to a broken bureaucracy that will not be candid

It´s hardly news that conservatives are not especially welcome on college and university campuses. Speech codes are designed to restrict discourse and punish the exercise of fundamental rights. Faculties are disproportionately left-wing in their politics. Administrators are sometimes intimidated by mobs. Conservative students can be marginalized and harassed. Visiting speakers are assailed, shouted down, sometimes physically assaulted.

In a previous post, I wrote about a new study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine finding the Massachusetts health care law signed by former Gov. Mitt Romney in 2006 led to a measurable reduction in mortality in the state relative to other counties in the United States with similar demographics that did not expand coverage. But as experts debate how much the Massachusetts experience is likely to be replicated nationally as President Obama´s health care law expands the number of Americans with insurance, one question worth exploring is how much of a role the world-class medical system in Massachusetts

Two Texans may be vying for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016: Sen. Ted Cruz and Governor Rick Perry. Cruz overwhelmingly won the Texas GOP 2016 convention straw poll, confirming his position as the conservative grassroots candidate.

The suspect votes were cast during Cochran’s successful effort to defeat Tea Party challenger Chris McDaniel in the Mississippi Republican primary run-off held last week. If true, such an action would be clearly illegal under both federal law and Mississippi statutes, specifically MS Code 97-13-1; MS Code 97-13-3 (2013) (Federal Code 18 U.S.C. 597, U.S.C. 1973i(c)), each punishable by a prison
