HHS: Did You know it was National Rural Health Day?

I got an email today saying that HHS.gov (Health & Human Services) is “Celebrating National Rural Health Day”.  First this is not a dig directly on the fine folks that serve our citizens in the health care profession.  It’s an overall look at the bureaucracy.

I think it was kind of an interesting article, but then, it got me wondering, why do they keep studying the same issues, and getting other people to study the issue–instead of putting the majority of money into problem solving?

You Have the HHS, VA, CHAMPUS, and other organizations all doing something in the healthcare industry.  Do they even talk to each other?  Why is there Read More

Medicare-for-All Is the Healthcare Answer and Access People Avoid Talking About

For sure, there is no ‘one answer that fixes everything’.  But, we have to start choosing a direction of best possibilities and moving in that direction on a continuous path.  All the money people spend on elections, political campaigns, and propaganda could be put to such better use. We can help them start. We can ignore all the bullshit that we know is bullshit and simply ask the hard questions of both parties.  That is the fastest way to helping them realize that you know the game they are playing.

The questions should be asked of both political parties because both are playing political games. Republicans are not serious at all about governing.  At least the Democrats make some effort of indicating they know what the average American wants. It’s going to cost money, but, so does everything.

The Wall, Tax Cuts, Defense, Corporate Welfare, …everything Republicans claim will “pay for itself ” (and doesn’t) costs money too.  I argue that ‘Medicare-for-All’ will pay for itself.  If its models a system like Social Security, it probably will.  Especially if politicians leave the money alone.  I believe when politicians started borrowing from the Social Security Fund was when all the problems began.  They were supposed to not touch or borrow from Social Security at all!  And yet, they did. We need people in government who will represent the people well; and who will focus on their duties instead of fundraising and kickbacks.

Make your decisions wisely in all elections from this point forward. There is a lot to be done.  We need people who will do the work without fear and for the good of the American people.
