“When was the last time you said to yourself or someone: Oh, the government loves me. The government knows me. The government sat with me when my mother died. The government was there when I was on my last leg.”
– Supreme Court justice Clarence Thomas
This quote pretty much sums up why elected officials shouldn’t meddle in our medical care.
After all, it was the frontline doctors and nurses who sat there with us during those trials.
They are the obvious choice for improving health outcomes and I’ll prove it.
Socialized Medicine Is a Mistake
You may have come across medical content writing which suggests the government should step in and solve the industry’s woes. Please know I’ll never join that group.
If they were a good solution, wouldn’t the VA be the most efficient and award-winning system in the nation?
Unfortunately, anything politicians touch seems to become confusing and disorganized. Perhaps because they’re more concerned with reelection than healing American heroes.
The private sector and medical entrepreneurs are the best hope for addressing the health needs of our citizens. No question.
Here’s some reasons why:
- Less red tape boosts productivity
- Greater personal investment in ventures
- Competition breeds innovation
- Less room for corruption
- Driven by a desire to heal
Those backing these ventures are using their own money..not taxpayers. Therein lies one way the probability of success is much higher.
How about our chances with intervention at the federal level? To answer that, briefly put yourself in the shoes of a politician.
It’s easier to spend someone else’s money, but we’re also less motivated to make it work. Correct?
Well there you go!
Now I’d like to hone down on a concrete example to support leaving things in the hands of forward thinking pioneers.
Online Forum for Change
A social media group I manage has been brainstorming some possible health freedom solutions that offer patient choice and full transparency.
Yes, that includes natural options which aren’t making money for Big Pharma or three letter agencies.
It’s made up of current and former doctors, nurses, patients, and various medical professionals.
This small melding of individuals has already generated some feasible paths forward. Imagine what hundreds of these groups across the country could accomplish?
But is anyone who has the ability to legislate change asking our opinion? Not that I’m aware of. Unless Google is flagging their incoming mail as spam.
Examples of ideas:
- Greater use of Direct Primary Care
- Hub & spoke model for rural areas
- Local health care sharing groups
- Affordable health tech access
- Welcome holistic practitioners into the mix
- Truthful healthcare content writing
This last point is tied into my professional passion.
