RAPID RESPONSE...Daily Commentary on News of the Day
This is a new section. It will offer fresh, quick reactions by myself to news and events of the day, day by day, in this rapid-fire world of ours. Of course, as in military campaigns, a rapid response in one direction may occasionally have to be followed by a "strategic withdrawal" in another direction. Charge that to "the fog of war", and to the necessary flexibility any mental or military campaign must maintain to be effective. But the mission will always be the same: common sense, based upon facts and "real politick", supported by a visceral sense of Justice and a commitment to be pro-active. That's all I promise.

"YOUNG PHYSICIANS...."
They don't know what they don't know.
But go ahead: study it...while you grow up professionally.

Once its greatest foes, doctors are embracing single-payer

AND NOW, WHERE IS THE COUNTER-POINT?
With the environmental and human activity changes proposed and inferred by this study, the world's people would kill each other in the frying pan long before the fire arrived.

GS

Study warns of looming potential for runaway global warming

RR#2

BUYING HEALTH INSURANCE.
This is called "choice", "supply and demand", and "a free market".
Of course the Health Insurance swamp is against it, just as it has been against that other common sense product: the Health Savings Account.

GS

Trump Throws A Life Belt To People Who Buy Their Own Health Insurance

RR#3

MIKE, YOU CAN DO BETTER THAN THIS.
A Free Press is critical to a Free Society.
A biased Press promotes dis-information, which is dis-believed  - eventually together with true information...a perfect climate for despotism.
Any good journalist concerned about the direction of his or her Profession must first
Confess your sins;
then Repent;
then "Do No More".
Until then, a large swath of American mainstream Journalism has become
"an enemy of the people", for the reason expressed above.

GS

We are the enemy of the people, except when you need us

REGARDING OBESITY: BEWARE..."FAT-HEAD" NOW HAS A NEW MEANING.

Belly fat linked to cognitive decline

BINGO!
This is THE TRUTH, THE WHOLE TRUTH, AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH...
about physicians, the Medical Profession and the patients they find it increasingly difficult to care for properly.
This could only have been written by a Good Doctor. THANK YOU.

Physicians aren’t ‘burning out.’ They’re suffering from moral injury

HEALTH CARE COSTS AND DELIVERY:
Once again Newt Gingrich is SPOT-ON!

See the many articles by me and by others, posted in various sections of my web site over the decades and continuing. This problem is SOLUBLE.

Health Care is the Economy

JUST SO YOU KNOW: THE DEMOCRATIC ANIMUS AGAINST JUDGE KAVANAUGH GOES BACK A LONG WAY.
And his further and continuing professional development as a Jurist comes forward a long way.
His nomination, if decided on the merits..." NOLO CONTENDERE".

FRIDAY, August 3, 2018

FYI.

GS

On Friday, the Trump administration released their annual report to Congress on White House Office Personnel. It includes the name, status, salary and position title of all 377 White House employees.
The report also said that Trump decided not to take a dime of his salary; instead he donated it to an amazing cause! See below
The report also showed that President Trump is far better at saving money than Obama was. The total annual White House salaries under Trump are $35.8 million vs. $60.9 million under Obama, a savings of $25.1 million. Here are some other key findings:
There are 140 fewer employees on White House staff under Trump than under Obama at this point in their respective presidencies.
Thirty-nine fewer staffers are also dedicated to The First Lady of the United States (FLOTUS). Currently, there are only five staffers dedicated to Melania Trump vs. forty-four staffers who served Michelle Obama (FY2009)
However, it's what the report said Trump did with this salary that has everyone talking.
Instead of taking his salary, Trump donated all $400,000 to the Department of the Interior where it will be used for construction and repair needs at military cemeteries! AMAZING! It's so great to have a President who loves our brave military men and women so much!
Oh, and where's the media coverage of this? That's right, they don't cover anything decent that the President does...

PAYING FOR HEALTH CARE DELIVERY: THE MACRO AND THE MICRO.
Let's start with the MACRO...and with the obvious.

"Yes, the government should help those in need; but there is no fundamental reason that your and my health care and insurance must be so screwed up to achieve that goal".
So ends a recent article by John H. Cochrane entitled: "The Tax-And-Spend Health-Care Solution (WSJ July 30, 2018, Opinion, pA17. The author compares the current Health Care payment experience nation-wide with our experience with national telephone service and with national air service before and after finally producing a rational solution. Of course, why these vital and massive services were "so screwed up" was because businesses with great political clout wanted great profit - without competition. And our fearless leaders obliged. The same is true now - and for decades - with the Health Care Industry.

And now onto the MICRO. See: "The GOP's Clean Bills Of Health Savings" (in the same edition of WSJ, Editorial, pA16). As I have been writing for decades on this web-site and in the lay press, Health Savings Accounts have been a logical solution for decades...and have been thwarted for decades by the same organizations with great clout and by their wholly-owned subsidiary, the Government. And we are all, providers as well as consumers of health care, getting screwed!
