Page 425 (end of life counseling)

I received several emails over the last few days concerning page 425 of the House Bill on Health Reform, HR 3200, which outlines mandatory end of life “options” counseling. Technically, it appears on the surface to allow doctors (and other “providers”) to charge for the counseling. But, yes, it’s mandated counseling and in the wrong … Continue reading

The transcript of the press conference is on line at the Washington Post. However, if you want an annotated version, try this blog.

Thoughts on Obama's health speech July 22, 2009

Why doesn’t the President just say that the Executive branch employees in his Administration will get rid of their insurance and go on Medicare??? Not a doggone thing that the President is talking about tonight – except for the taxes, the increased bureaucracies and the requirements that Pharmacy companies discount meds – is in the … Continue reading

Ann Coulter on government Health Care finance

On the other hand, there’s Ann Coulter’s take. Give Ann a chance, here. She makes some very good points.

Mayo Clinic calls health care plans bad medicine

I’ve always said that if the Mayo Clinic docs were so smart, they’d come to Texas where it’s warm and they can golf year around (like their patients who visit us from October to April). Nevertheless, doctors at Minnesota’s Mayo Clinic have come out against the current plans for health “reform.” They are joined by … Continue reading

Governor Jindal reminds us how FEMA helped flood insurance

You may not be aware that the only way to buy flood insurance is through FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency. In fact, the Agency draws the lines for the Flood Plains and so, decides whether you need flood insurance. Executive Order 12127 President Carter’s 1979 executive order merged many of the separate disaster-related responsibilities … Continue reading

Redefining, Reducing and Rationing Health Care

Peter Singer, in his op-ed for the New York Times this weekend, seems to be unaware of the difference that our mobility in the United States – both in geography and society – can make.
