- How do we make health care Faster, Bettr and Cheaper?
Logan Darrow Clements, made news with his “Lost Liberty Hotel” project.
This involved applying the Supreme Court’s “Kelo vs. City of New London” decision to one of the Justices who voted for it, David Souter. The Kelo decision allows a government to take your home using eminent domain if it believes your land will generate higher tax revenue with a new development. Logan asked the town of Weare, New Hampshire to seize Supreme Court Justice David Souter’s house using eminent domain so Logan could build a hotel in its place.
Although the Town Board of Weare ultimately voted down the Lost Liberty Hotel, it helped awaken Americans to the fact that their land is no longer safe from government confiscation.
Sick and Sicker is a feature-length documentary movie that diagnoses America’s health care problems and writes a prescription. Sick and Sicker summarizes the discoveries of public policy experts, exposes Canada’s PolitiCare* system and highlights innovations that are driving costs down and quality up.
Sick and Sicker will be enlightening, humorous and dramatic.
A doctor shouldn’t recommend treatments before having an accurate understanding of what caused the problem in the first place. Toward that end the producer of the movie Sick and Sicker has created an influence-chart diagram of “Causes of Health Care and Health Insurance Inflation in Excess of General Inflation”.
1. Push Americans into a government-run health care system by driving private insurance out of business.
2. Save money in a government system by denying treatments and drugs to certain patients.
3. Save money in a government system by reducing payments to health care providers and companies that develop new drugs and innovations.
4. Have all your personal medical information stored in a database controlled by the government.
5. Have politicians and bureaucrats tell doctors how to practice medicine.
6. Punish patients, doctors, hospitals and employers that don’t comply.
7. Force American taxpayers to pay the health care bills of illegal aliens.
8. Encourage senior citizens to die rather than receive expensive treatments.
9. Increase government debt by billions of dollars to create a government health care system.
10. Raise taxes to pay for the government health care system.
1. Drive down the cost of health insurance by allowing people to buy less expensive health insurance policies across state lines.
2. Drive down the cost of health insurance by abolishing state laws that dramatically increase the cost of health insurance.
3. Drive down the cost of health care and health insurance by switching the health insurance tax deduction from employers to individuals.
4. Drive down the cost of health care by reducing bogus lawsuits against health care providers with lawsuit award limits and loser-pays laws.
5. Drive down the cost of health care by increasing the supply of health care providers and facilities by abolishing laws proven to reduce either one.
6. Improve the quality and decrease the cost of health care delivery by abolishing laws that reduce health care delivery innovations.
7. Drive down the cost of drugs and medical equipment by allowing people to own their own body and decide what to put in their own body by making the F.D.A. a voluntary organization like Underwriter’s Laboratory.
8. Prevent cost shifting by requiring people receiving free care in the emergency room to pay over time through tax refund deductions or welfare payment reductions.
9. Encourage direct-practice medicine where neither government nor insurance is involved by allowing a person’s H.S.A. funds to pay direct-practice fees.
10. Slowly transition Medicare and Medicaid to voluntary programs so they don’t bankrupt America and drive up health care prices in the meantime.
