America's Healthcare Solution Proven to be a Crystal Ball Jul 23, 2012
I don’t particularly enjoy boasting about myself, but as you can imagine, being on the media’s black list requires me to serve as my own cheerleader. It’s shocking how the media continues to glorify clowns with poor insight and horrendous track records, positioning these snake oil salesmen as experts. Of course, if you are Jewish, you are granted this luxury.
America's Healthcare Disaster Jul 10, 2012
Last week, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act (ACA), often referred to as Obamacare. Despite the fanfare from the media, most Americans remain distracted by the bipartisan theatrics. In reality the ruling was a non event. The ACA never offered a solution to begin with because it failed to address the single biggest problem in healthcare; runaway inflation. The fact of the matter is that with or without Obamacare, the U.S. healthcare system will continue to be run like Wall...

Israeli Immigrant Attacked by Ignorant American Nov 16, 2010
The Big Secret about U.S. Healthcare (UPDATED) Sep 26, 2010
Apparently, the use of scare tactics works well for a population whose minds have been hijacked by the corporate controlled media establishment. For instance, a few years ago, President Bush and his neo con clan used the WMD scare tactic in order to justify the invasion of Iraq. More scare tactics were used to pass the unconstitutional Patriot Act.

America's Health Insurance Mafia Strikes Again (UPDATED) Aug 19, 2010
Did you get a raise in 2009? CEOs of the nation’s largest health insurers most certainly did; CIGNA, UnitedHealth, Humana and Wellpoint. In fact, as a reward for many years of excessive hikes to insurance premiums executed under his leadership, Edward Hanway, the former CEO of CIGNA was provided with a retirement package worth $110.9 million, paid for by the excessive and unnecessarily high insurance premiums billed to CIGNA’s policy holders. Excessive premium hikes from U.S....
More Signs of America's Healthcare Crisis Jun 15, 2010
Previously, I discussed the trend of massive healthcare inflation which has not been addressed by healthcare reform. I mentioned that insurance premiums would rise to account for new taxes and other provisions of the law. But rather than employers being left out to dry, I discussed that they would simply pass higher costs onto employees in the form of higher premiums and deductibles and less coverage. This is already happening.
Nurses are Right about the Problem but Wrong about the Solution Jun 14, 2010
Last week, more than as a sign of protest over excessive patient loads. The nurses are right about staffing shortages and overloaded responsibilities. However, their solution – hiring more nurses will add further costs pressures to America’s unsustainable healthcare bubble. Without radical change, this bubble promises to burst, adding yet another dimension to America's healthcare crisis.

ObamaCare: Soon to be the Worst Bill Passed in U.S. History (Part 1) Mar 23, 2010
With Obama’s healthcare bill ready to sign, democrats are celebrating. Meanwhile, (supposedly) enraged republicans insist payback will come in November. This is part of the typical back and forth theatrics staged to galvanize voter support for each party.
ObamaCare: Soon to be the Worst Bill Passed in U.S. History (Part 2) Mar 23, 2010

ObamaCare Spells DISASTER for Americans (Part 1) Dec 22, 2009
Most Americans have been fooled into thinking one party has the solutions to the nation’s problems, when the facts paint a much different picture. You need to understand that both parties are the same. As history shows, .

Ron Paul: Wrong on the Economy, Wrong on Healthcare (Part 2) Jul 22, 2009
According to Paul, healthcare should be run like mobile phone providers! Okay let's see. Mobile phone carriers tie you into legally binding service contracts with extortionist penalties for breaking the contract even when they fail to render services, etc. In fact, America's healthcare is already run like mobile phone providers. That's one reason why healthcare has become such a problem.
Ron Paul: Wrong on the Economy, Wrong on Healthcare (Part 1) Jul 21, 2009
The problem is that real change is impermissible in the current political system because it resembles a mafia. Perhaps Paul thought that by appeasing healthcare lobbyists with a continuation of pseudo free market healthcare, he would be granted permission to compete on a level playing field with other candidates.
Peter Schiff: Wrong on the Economy, Wrong on Healthcare (Part 3) Jul 16, 2009
From what I can tell, the ONLY thing Mr. Schiff understands about healthcare is the poor design of private medical insurance. The current system does not provide real insurance. It’s nothing more than a system of pre paid medical, operating with the rules of insurance. And this has created a huge source of fraud by private insurers. Assuming we keep the basic structure of private insurance in place, it should be modified to provide assistance under some catastrophic, emergency situation...
Peter Schiff: Wrong on the Economy, Wrong on Healthcare (Part 2) Jul 15, 2009
Certainly, President Obama is not going about things in a manner I would advise. But Peter, you cannot use his extremist approach (or I should say that of Larry Summers and others who are really running the show) to validate your own extremist views of the “dangers” of prudent and accountable regulation; something the United States has not had in decades.
Peter Schiff: Wrong on the Economy, Wrong on Healthcare (Part 1) Jul 13, 2009
I normally don’t bother myself with reading personal views pumped out throughout the Internet. But I came across one of Peter Schiff’s pitches demonstrating just how off the mark he remains. So I felt compelled to address his misguided opinions; not only because he is wrong, but also because he has been inducted into the deceitful media club. And he has used this venue as a manner by which to sway political and economic opinion. Have a .
Obama: Wrong on the Economy, Wrong on Healthcare (Part 2) Jun 29, 2009
Perhaps the most obvious sign of weakness, Obamaas healthcare proposal specifically ignores the number one problem with healthcare in America a cost.

A couple of weeks ago, IAran across a fantastic article by a physician who sought to understand why there are such large differences between healthcare costs in different cities.
