Good Intentions Can Be Dangerous

Good Intentions Can Be Dangerous

Outsiders want to tie your doctor’s hands using data. A new report says health care price transparency is urgently needed to reduce health care spending.

Speak Out Against the Government’s Biosurveillance Plan for Warehousing Americans’ Health Information

It seems that every American is trackable in today’s hyper-technical society—via our cell phones and tablets, by purchases we make and through web sites we visit.

But the government is planning a new way to keep tabs on all Americans—through a sneaky biosurveillance plan that will track American’s health records.

I’m not going to talk about Obama’s SOTU… except to say that I feel like I did the last time he had to get up and try to sell Obamacare to the nation: he doesn’t want to do it; he feels it’s beneath him; it’s four years after Obamacare and he’s perturbed that he still has to be marketing the law in a speech.

The Obama Administration Lied

The Obama Administration Lied

They spent months telling us would never be like this. But look at what it is now and realize national health care will be just like the Obamacare Exchange debacle: Delays, denials of service, waiting lines, no one answering the phone, and a president that says, “Keep trying.”

Resist Obamacare – Two New Ways

Two new options for Obamacare resistance await. The first is found below in “News to Know” (Exchange Opt-Out Declaration).
