NeoNotes — Health care

??There is a distinct difference between healthcare and health insurance.

Wage caps made employer supplied health insurance necessary. If you can't offer higher wages to attract employees, you have to offer something.

Government paying for selected health care under the cover of "insurance" drove prices up and availability down, just as it does every time government "manages" private enterprise. This was especially evident in Obamacare. Despite promises like "if you like your health insurance/doctor, you can keep your health insurance/doctor," Obamacare has resulted in fewer doctors and medical professionals, fewer businesses for routine medical procedures, less medical care in rural areas, and many more bureaucratic hurdles to setting up a new medical provider.

Which means that despite greater medical insurance for some, there has been less medical care for all including the ones with more insurance.

In other words, Obamacare f…ed you, made you pay for the "privilege," and demanded that you smile and give thanks while it was happening.

All because people couldn't recognize the difference between medical insurance and medical care.??

NeoNotes — Looking good

Two video monitors of equal size. A dozen people, some of who were Democrats. Both videos played side by side with the volume turned down. All but one person thought that Trump came across stronger, more confident, better body language, and more convincingly. One guy said that Pelosi and Schumer looked like high school student council candidates.

?The Fallacy of Single-Payer Health Care?

“Chris Pope joins John Stossel to talk about the debate over single-payer health care—a system in which the federal government would assume all health-care costs currently borne by private insurers, employers, and individuals.

Momentum for single-payer is growing among Democratic politicians. Senator Bernie Sanders’s “Medicare for All” proposal would impose $32 trillion in new costs over ten years and a likely annual tax increase of $26,000 per American household. It’s hard to imagine that Congress would adopt massive federal tax increases and rationing of health-care services, but incremental proposals, such as Medicaid buy-in and strict price controls, could be on the horizon if Democrats capture the White House in 2020 and do well in the congressional elections.

Advocates for single-payer health care point to European countries with generous social-welfare systems as evidence of its success. They don’t acknowledge the fact that Germany and France, like the United States, have private and employer-funded health insurance, in addition to government programs for the poor. In the meantime, U.S. lawmakers continue to ignore reforms—like eliminating barriers to hospital competition—that would probably be more effective in improving America’s health-care system.”
