The only person you should put your full faith in is… You. Make decisions for yourself rather than "trusting" someone else, especially self-styled experts and our politicians who invariably have a personal agenda that doesn’t include you.
Good decisions are based on hard evidence. That is what Dr. Waldman offers you here: the proofs for what he writes. Read both the books and articles, and decide for yourself.
From magical thinking to thinking systems; highlighting the doctor shortage, the unfunded mandate, and the insurance principle; explaining what TLC means in Washington as well as how medical rationing and the VA system kill patients; to Obamacare success that will be the death of us. See why Dr. Waldman writes what he writes and decide if you agree or disagree.
For decades, political pundits and the mass media have bombarded the public with a drumbeat of misinformation on healthcare.
On November 3, it was not only CoViD-19 but ongoing failure of our entire healthcare system that was foremost in voters’ minds.
Do Americans still have the right to speak their minds freely as guaranteed by the First Amendment? Apparently not, as one 19-year-old can attest.
With the summer drawing to a close, the big question for nearly 60 million U.S. school-age children is whether they can return to school, or must they remain at home, limited to remote learning? States and municipalities differ widely on whether and how to reopen schools based on differing assessments of the risks.
Our politicians do not learn from history, even our own. House Bill 100 ("New Mexico Health Care Access Wins Final Approval," Los Alamos Post, Feb 19) just passed is touted to "increase[s] access to high-quality health care."Sadly, this is not true.
Democrats plan to make healthcare a defining issue in the 2020 presidential election. Their rallying cry is, "Build on the success of the ACA!" Is the ACA, in fact, a success, based on facts and evidence, not rhetoric and spin?
Both Republicans and Democrats in Congress have bought into three healthcare lies: big, bigger, and biggest. The first says health insurance is what we need. The second presumes that having insurance means you will get care.
Aphorisms like "the pot calling the kettle black" persist because they keep being proven relevant. Such is the case with politicians' outrage over MylanPharmaceuticals' price gouging for its life-saving EpiPen: their price has risen from less than $100 for a two-pack in 2007 to $600 today.
Before the American Revolutionary War, residents of the North American colonies were subjects of the British crown.They were entitled to whatever goods and services the aristocracy allowed.
The title question might seem silly, even ludicrous. It is anything but.
In the United States today, a truck driver is free to choose which gear to use going up a hill and at what speed to go down the hill.
There are several lessons we have learned from the CoViD-19 experience such as: the unreliability of predictive models; the danger of depending on foreign supply chains;
Federal healthcare regulations with their attendant bureaucracies are supposed to facilitate patients getting the medical care they need when they need it. Sadly, bureaucracy does the exact opposite:
Common wisdom teaches that those who have health insurance get the care they need when they need it, and that those who don't have coverage, don't get care. This false "wisdom" is used by progressives to push for government-controlled, single payer healthcare.
Elected officials such as New York and Atlanta mayors as well as clinical physicians, viz., in Maryland and Colorado,are projecting there will be more patients who need life-saving CoViD-19
When the CoViD-19 (Corona Virus Disease, 2019) first broke out, there was little-to-no data. Without factual evidence, medical advisers had to depend on mathematical models such as the
In a Wisconsin speech before the 1860 presidential campaign, Abraham Lincoln quoted a Persian parable ending with, "And this, too, shall pass away." His words apply to the CoViD-19 (Corona Virus Disease, 2019) outbreak.
Supreme Court Associate Justice Louis Brandeis famously urged the states to become "laboratories of democracy" (New State Ice Co. v. Liebmann, 1932) by testing new, alternative ideas of governance.
The U.S. healthcare system is failing both the American public as well as Americans doctors. Fundamental change is needed but Washington keeps adjusting the financing and never deals with the root cause-breakdown of the doctor-patient relationship.
Before the Revolutionary War, residents of the North American colonies were subjects of the British crown. They were entitled to as much or as little as the aristocracy allowed.
To get what you want, you must first decide what that is. If you believe media reports on healthcare, the public wants to save money and to have health insurance.
U.S. healthcare is failing: it doesn’t deliver timely care and spends money we don’t have and can’t afford. Can healthcare be fixed?
Medicare-for-All would be lethal poison for US healthcare. The antidote is de-federalization, also known as States Care, where the American people in their states decide their healthcare
The answer for healthcare is to treat the root cause of system failure: federal control of healthcare. Get Washington out of healthcare and let the people in their states decide.
Learn why healthcare shouldn’t be controlled by Washington. Health care decisions should be made by We the People, not by federal bureaucrats or insurance executives.
Having health insurance coverage is not the same thing as getting the medical care you need when you need it.
People in their states can have the healthcare they want, instead of what Washington dictates.
In Great Britain’s single payer system, the government “pulled the plug” on two babies against the wishes of their parents.
If you ever wondered how our “people” in Washington come up with their ridiculous ideas and turn them into laws, here is your answer.
Washington has failed us in healthcare: Let the states try.
Not only are you, personally, a system, but you are a “thinking system” — one capable of both greatness and great evil. Healthcare is a thinking system, just like you and me.
This article, written by Stephen Kerr in 1974, should be mandatory reading for everyone, and I do mean everyone. Politicians and bureaucrats should be required to memorize it.
To those who work in healthcare, the HIPAA Law is like a giant hippopotamus sitting on our chests suffocating us. We all want to shoot it. Learn why.
Everybody buys insurance like auto, home, and life. Do you know the “insurance principle” — how it applies to health insurance and to health care?
It’s inconceivable to any American that our healthcare system would KILL individuals by government decree. But that is precisely what medical rationing will do.
Some people believe that Single Payer is the answer to American healthcare system problems. Check out the Single Payer we already have — it’s called the VA system.
Why doesn’t Medicare send us monthly checks the way Social Security does? Seriously, read this article and think about it.
In Washington, “TLC” means the opposite of “tender loving care.” Learn why it matters to you, very very much.
Left to its own devices, Medicare “won’t be there for us.” Not only will there be no money, there already are no doctors
This is another must-read article not written by me. At the same time as Obamacare gave “free” Medicaid insurance to millions of Americans, there are fewer doctors to care for them. How is that good for our health?
An honest look at the structure and financing of Medicare shows how and why it is doomed. We need to think about how to save the patients from Medicare’s inevitable demise.
Obamacare adds millions of Americans to the rolls of the newly insured: this is what the President calls “success.” Meanwhile, there are fewer and fewer doctors to care for them. That is what we all call a disaster.
Few Americans understand that ACA is primarily a TAX bill. Read the evidence that proves Obamacare should really be called “ObamaTax.”
Many have heard of the Unfunded Mandate but few understand it. After reading this article, you will understand what a travesty it truly is.
When we buy a hamburger, we demand, “Where’s the beef?” Yet when we consider purchasing the most important and expensive item of all, healthcare, no one demands the same kind of proof.
