In one of my posts last summer, I wrote about how a conference of the Free Market Medial Association I attended had impressed me in terms of two very hard-hitting and challenging principles that were expressed in one of the presentations.
Dr. Keith Smith, co-founder of both the Surgery Center of Oklahoma and, more recently, the Free Market Medical Association, recently published an editorial article on the website for the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons entitled, “‘Coverage’ Isn’t ‘Care.'”
After months of discouragement regarding the promised repeal (and possible replacement) of Obamacare, Congress may have just given those longing for that sweet breath of freedom some hope in an unexpected place – the tax reform bill that has now become law.
As the people of the United States try to correct the disastrous effects of the Affordable (more like Unaffordable) Care Act, the single payer advocates have become not-so-strangely noisier than ever, and what a coincidence because Senator Bernie Sanders introduced a proposal in September to establish a socialist system of single payer health care fondly known by the leftists as “Medicare for All.”
Ever since Senator Bernie Sanders proposed his “Medicare for All” single payer “health care” plan in the Senate last month, with at least 15 Democratic supporters, the liberals have been crowing over it and all its supposed benefits. One would think that single payer (i.e. socialism) is this great utopia in which everyone is truly on equal footing. However, the experience of history has not borne out this ideology.
