Below are links to two stories on health care, both offering strong points of view, neither being completely accurate or particularly coherent in stratgic analytic terms.
Health Care 101:
Health Care is a four-part affair, and any policy proposal that fails to address all four parts is unaffordable, unsustainable, and a betrayal of the public trust.
Health Care is part of the mosaic of threats and policies that demand coherency and holistic handling by the President and Congress. Although President Obama knows that a strategic analytic model exists (it was put under his hotel room door in Des Moines) he has chosen to allow the Democratic partisan mafia to manage policy in the old way, as ideologically-driven pork, rather than in the new way, as an intelligence challenge. In the below graphic, please note that if cow shit is poisoning spinach (Agriculture) and Water from the tap is now “Blue Death” in many places, at the same time that energy and electronmagnetic polution are inflicting all poor urban children with severe asthma, then “health care” in narrow (nearly idiotic) manner now being considered by Congress is a fiction.
Finally, health care is unaffordable and unsustainable for as long as three conditions exist:
1) it is not a public service and is driven by profit (withdrawals of cash from the system)
2) it allows for 50% of every dollar to be waste as documented by PriceWaterHouseCoopers and
3) it seeks to control inputs rather than outcomes
Below are today’s two stories, each offering a perspective not the whole picture properly analyzed.
The Hidden Healthcare Nightmare
When an insurance firm boss saw a field hospital for the poor in Virginia, he knew he had to speak out. Here, he tells Paul Harris of his fears for Obama’s bid to bring about radical change
