Do Not Cave on Obamacare

The fear is palpable. It seems many Republicans and conservatives are afraid of winning the King vs. Burwell ACA subsidy care against the Obama administration. I overheard someone saying it might even be better to lose! Not true. If bureaucrats can make the law say whatever they want it to say, we are in deep trouble.

Don’t Drink the EHR Kool-Aid

Will They “Value” Your Life?

Government wants doctors paid for “value.” On July 1, Politico held a briefing called “Value vs. Volume.” Data-crunchers, in cahoots with government, say access to our private medical data can be used to pay doctors for “value,” instead of for the services they provide to patients.
