Top ten US Government steps toward healthcare reform

Practical actions toward reforms
By Aaron Fausz, Ph.D., and
W. Terry Howell, Ed.D.
(February 24,2020)
1. Price Transparency.
Continue to demand transparency of prices and quality of care in all aspects of healthcare, i.e. hospitals, clinics, etc. This will expose the huge, unnecessary variation in prices for the same procedures, and will enable customers to shop for low cost, high-quality health care like we do for everything else!
2. Allow Health Insurance to be Sold Across State Lines. Eliminate restrictions on insurance portability across state lines. Consumers should be able to go online and choose policies offered by large numbers of insurance companies with a wide variety of plans. This will allow consumers to purchase exactly what they need with nothing extra (just like they can do for their homeowners, auto, life and other types of insurance not provided by employers).

By Terry Howell, Ed.D. (February 18, 2020)

Plenty! For anyone who is interested, and all of us should be, here are some excellent resources detailing what is going on in healthcare and why it needs to be disrupted (i.e. reformed) in a big way. Keep Reading

Three issues the Dems own: Wealth Gap, Health Care and Climate Change

There are free market solutions waiting for GOP support
By Dr. Larry Fedewa (February 11, 2020)
On most of the issues highlighting the 2020 campaign, the Republicans have a great story, especially the economy, law enforcement, foreign policy (including trade), national security, energy, and job creation. The Democrats have concentrated on three critical issues, however, which are nearly ignored by most Republicans: the wealth gap, health care, and climate change.
This silence is a tragic mistake because current polls show that these three issues are of critical importance to significant numbers of the American electorate. If Republican candidates continue to ignore these two issues, they will suffer in the only polls that really count – the votes in November.

State of the Union: a Shakespearean drama

The President answers his white-shirted enemies
By Dr. Larry Fedewa (February 5, 2020)
The 2020 State of the Union address had all the elements of a Shakespearean drama. The setting was filled with tension and made for television. The primary picture showed the hero flanked on his right by his loyal acolyte, Vice President Mike Pence, and on the left by his archenemy, the little old lady of the Left, Nancy Pelosi, as he eloquently, at times even poetically, told America what he had accomplished with the responsibility the voters had given him while his enemies had been trying to destroy his presidency.
And it was quite a list! He has enhanced every facet of America’s welfare – from repatriating American manufacturing for both economic and national security reasons, to job creation, trade treaties, rebuilding the military, upgrading veterans’ health care, protecting our borders, to encouraging respect for the law enforcement community, protection of the right to bear arms, to the right to life of the unborn, the rights of parents to choose the education of their own children, to the fight against opioid addiction, human trafficking, and many more issues.
