The false alternative of ObamaCare or “Just let him die”

Ari Armstrong defends freedom of choice and responsibility in health care, pointing out that that other alternatives exist from “Let him die.”

Health Insurance and Personal Responsibility

Blitzer’s question presumes that the only three alternatives are overpriced insurance, letting him die, or forcing others to pay for his care. Thankfully, the real world offers us far better options…

The deeper problem, the real reason a healthy 30 year old grows tempted to forgo health insurance, is that politicians have made the costs of health care and insurance ludicrously expensive.

Everything you wanted to know about healthcare reform but didn’t know who to ask

Saturday September 17th, Constitution Day, is an apt day for a conference to address healthcare reform. The Lehigh Valley Coalition for Health Care Reform has put together an informative panel of presenters to do just that.

If you are near Allentoen PA, and interested in learning more about what the current law will bring us, and what we can do to bring about real reform which will protect freedom of choice while making health care affordable and accessible, be sure to attend.

Administration Halts Survey of Making Doctor Visits, New York Times

NYT reporter Robert Pear follows up on the fate of the government’s plan to employ counterfeit patients in order to surreptitiously survey how physician offices respond to types of payment for their services. Not only would such a survey needlessly duplicate existing research, the methods are blatantly deceptive, operates from the presumption that physicians are not to be trusted and actively works to undermine trust between patients and their doctors. This is not the first such aggressive tactic by the current administration. Recall the White House set up to collect emails/speeches of alleged “disinformation” about their healthcare law–or Sebelius’ threats to exclude critics from participating in the new health insurance exchanges? These heavy handed tactics are not aberrations, but instead, an integral part of central planning. Unless the PPACA is repealed, such actions will continue to plague our health care system.

Moral arguments on the rise in healthcare

Jared Rhoads of the Lucidicus Project has published an editorial taking a closer look at Rand Paul’s comparison of a “right” to health care with slavery.  Such strong words can be mistaken for hyperbole—until you take a closer look at the truth which underlies those words.  Any claim of a “right” to another man’s labor is to advocate that a man’s life is owned by another. To be partially enslaved is still to be enslaved.
