"Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved."

It's time to make changes to our healthcare system...
I have strong feelings about our healthcare system. I had a healthcare encounter every 28 days for 17+ years. That’s a mind blowing 200+ encounters for office visits and surgical procedures. I was bedridden for a decade of those years because of bad medical advice.
. . . because of bad medical advice . . .
Healthcare was bad before the Affordable Care Act, it is worse now. It’s going to take bold ideas and bold people to fix our healthcare issues. Too many third parties have created empires from the mess we’ve allowed over the past 60 years. There is always resistance to change and fear of the unknown.
Here is a great overview of the problem:
A short history about health insurance:
Insurers Win and Patients Lose…Again:
The medical community allowed this takeover to happen and I don’t expect much help from them. They are so far down the insurance driven rabbit hole they can’t see how bad things are for patients and their ability to practice. We continue wandering down the road toward a single payer system, letting others make the decisions we should be making.
They don’t realize a single payer health system leads to this…
Which leads to this:
We need to get the government out of doctor-patient relationships.
No good will come from this:
I see problems with this, too:
The result of over regulation:
If this is an “epidemic” (Please note this is ALL drug overdoses in 2017)
What is this?
Here’s the real epidemic no one wants us to know about:
Those statistics don't inspire confidence in the medical community.
Let’s fix this!
We're the team
A few David Crockett quotes:
“I AM AT LIBERTY TO VOTE AS MY CONSCIENCE AND JUDGEMENT DICTATES TO BE RIGHT, WITHOUT THE YOKE OF ANY PARTY ON ME... LOOK AT MY ARMS, YOU WILL FIND NO PARTY HAND-CUFF ON THEM!”
“Whenever I had anything, and saw a fellow-being suffering, I was more anxious to relieve him than to benefit myself. And this is one of the true secrets of my being a poor man to this day. But it is my way, and while it has often left me an empty purse, yet it has never left my heart empty of consolations which money couldn’t buy, the consolation of having sometimes fed the hungry and covered the naked.”
“Be always sure you’re right — THEN GO AHEAD!”
