Obama: take a look; England may decentralizing health care?
Yikes, Great Britain has finally realized that, in health care at least, centralized, socialism of health care is cumbersome and costly to the government and to the citizens in loss of care. Britain may decentralize health care. Britain Plans to Decentralize Health Care. Maybe, as in politics "all politics is local", all medical care needs to be local giving doctors and patients a chance to determine their care. From the article by Sarah Lyall,
Practical details of the plan are still sketchy. But its aim is clear: to shift control of England’s $160 billion annual health budget from a centralized bureaucracy to doctors at the local level. Under the plan, $100 billion to $125 billion a year would be meted out to general practitioners, who would use the money to buy services from hospitals and other health care providers.Let's hope that socialism will be on the reverse and Americans will see a lessening of regulations designed to control our lives from cradle to grave and designed under Obama Non-care to push us into early graves. Keep in mind that when the government using tax dollar "pays for your health care", that same benevolent government has nothing by keeping you alive. It seems our health and our health care are up to us. And from Lyall,
The plan would also shrink the bureaucratic apparatus, in keeping with the government’s goal to effect $30 billion in “efficiency savings” in the health budget by 2014 and to reduce administrative costs by 45 percent. Tens of thousands of jobs would be lost because layers of bureaucracy would be abolished.Jobs lost but they are government created jobs, not jobs created by the private sector. As I see it, in America today we need to stop "bleeding jobs" like we've sliced an artery and turn to the private sector what is left of it so that jobs can be created maybe giving us a chance. When the government swells and becomes bloated there is plenty of room for abuse of power and corruption. Those who would be king look to increasing their power by increasing the number of jobs/people who report to them. God bless America and for the health of our nation, 2012 is not long away but enough to make the reversal of our rush to Marxist Socialism a challenging task. It has happened so quickly that the current Administration is behaving like a soft tyranny. We don't need thousand page bills with the details to be filled in later. We need less legislation and fewer regulations over our daily lives. As Rush Limbaugh mentioned a few days ago, our fellow citizens who voted Obama into office need to apologize to the rest of us for this creeping dictatorship, systemic racism within the Administration, and such. Let's see what happens as European Socialism falls in upon itself...
