WHY IS THE GOVERNMENT EVEN INVOLVED IN HEALTH INSURANCE?

The easy answer is because the socialists within our government want to control everything you ever worked for. Starting small, they managed in 2010 to conquer 1/6 our economic freedom to advance their agenda.

Unlike the First Law of Thermodynamics (“neither matter nor energy can be created or destroyed”), government entitlement programs can be created, they just cannot be destroyed once implemented. Government programs become indestructible foundation as soon as they are established and there is no destroying them. They can only be built upon. Even studies like “Why Ducks Waddle On Land and Swim Gracefully In Water” or “How to Extend the Life Expectancy of Fireflies for Our Children’s Evening Pleasure” are refunded and extended though no conclusion is found as a 2 year, eight million dollar grant ends with an exhausted budget.

The socialist Democrats of the 111th Congress, saddled the citizens of the United States with an untenable health insurance mandate that now cannot be destroyed. Though the costs to most people is exorbitant, it became an entitlement for some. To take an entitlement away once the slobbering, slurping few have become dependent on it is an impossible task. There are now people caught in the middle who won’t take jobs or accept advancement and a pay raise because doing so could cause adjustment in the premiums required to maintain their health insurance plan.

Before the PPACA was enacted, everybody had access to doctors and other health professionals. The elderly had, and have, Medicare (paid from funds the government sucked out of their paychecks when they were working). Medicaid was, and is, provided for those who cannot afford insurance and it is virtually impossible to find a case where a doctor refused treatment for a sick or injured person.

The rest must have jobs, pay for the health insurance program but cannot afford to take advantage of the service or care offered. The premiums deplete their otherwise disposable income to the point they cannot afford the deductible required to access a doctor. Think about that! Some people are less healthy because the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is not affordable and provides less timely care than was available prior to its inception. But the federal government is now in control of an entire industry and an additional 16.67% of our GDP.

Even with the help of a majority party in both houses, the new administration is struggling to find a way of actually providing patient care with reasonable and affordable insurance premiums and deductibles. They can’t do it. No matter how hard or what they try, someone will cry foul. Then it will cause an uprising and national attention. Somebody might risk re-election.  They, the powers that be, now control one-sixth of the national economy and rather than helping the majority of premium payers, they’ve managed to make the citizens sick…or sicker at least.

Once again our elected officials have inserted themselves where there is no place for them. Doctors, Physician Assistants, insurers and hospital administrators – those actually involved in the health insurance and care industries – should devise a, or some, workable plan(s). When the knowledgeable professionals agree, a presentation to the lawmaking bodies would be in order. This might keep elite but ignorant lawyers, politicians and other bureaucrats from dictating submissiveness to an infeasible program. *Been there, done that!

Even starting with what we had in 2008 – private insurance companies providing health care insurance – and improving on it seems a more practical and logical way of accomplishing a universal health care goal than “Here’s a plan. Confiscate a bunch of money from those who have a few bucks. Keep a large chunk of it (call it administration fees) and throw the rest into a fund to foolishly try and make an infeasible and unwanted plan work. When it doesn’t we’ll just make the people pay more and more until it does.

Thanks to those who mandated compliance with their deceitful schemes, overall public health today is worse than it was just a decade ago. Hospital administrators, doctors and insurers decline participation in the current government system (PPACA) because of the mandates put upon them (program guidelines, restrictions, regulations, taxes, pharmaceutical purchases and pricing, compliance protocols, recording and reporting, etc.). The low and slow reimbursement for their services doesn’t energize their enthusiasm for the program either.

Due primarily to the guidelines of the PPACA (aka Obamacare), many counties across the country have no facilities or physicians available to participate in the plan. This effectively leaves the public wanting for any plan providers within twenty to fifty miles from home.  Yet they are still forced to pay exorbitant sums for insurance.  Without traveling distances, some are forced to pay additional sums for service outside of the plan.

A transition from what is now decreed to be free choice in health care might be accomplished by releasing the people from the government bonds. Allowing states to set up funds to help with excess costs and preexisting conditions could keep costs down for all insureds. This simply means congress must write a law repealing the joke that is strangling those in need of care.

    Another great post, Bob. This Socialist bent in the US Government is not the American way. However, I think we saw it starting to fester in the US against Vietnam Veterans. When the All Volunteer Armed Forces came into being and there was no more Draft, about July 1973, we started seeing very liberal individuals and beliefs invade the halls of higher education and start indoctrination of the youth of our Country.

    Since there was no more draft, a good portion of our youth began to be dumbed down on American values and The Republic and how it all fits into the Constitution. Ever since we began to pay people for not working, etc., more people are not working. As taxes keep being raise and regulations flourished, more companies moved major manufacturing to foreign countries, etc., we have been on the downward slide. Of course a lot of the slide has been precipitated by the Socialist elite, and those that favor a one world government, and pay a lot of the tariff to front and media organizations, like the Hungarian Jewish Nazi sympathizer, George Schwartz.

    I have more, but enough fo now. Again, Bob, A great post.

    The very crux of your writing while appearing reasonable in the beginning, did not really work perfectly with me after some time. Somewhere within the paragraphs you actually were able to make me a believer but only for a while. I still have got a problem with your leaps in assumptions and you would do nicely to fill in those breaks. When you can accomplish that, I will undoubtedly be amazed.
