Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom
Health Freedom Minute October 22, 2012
HCR-Focus on the Political Disease Solving the health care crisis requires knowing the political disease, not just treating its symptoms. Policymakers should deal with the disease, but too often they deal only with the symptoms. This focus is harmful. Todayʼs crisis is a symptom of a political disease this country has been nurturing for five decades. Since the short-sighted enactment of Medicare in 1965, policymakers have willingly put federal agencies, 132,000 pages of regulations, administrative burdens, and an army of middlemen between patients and doctors. As a result of this single-payer program for seniors, we now have a crisis of cost, confidence, confidentiality, and care. The solution is less government, not more.
