Everything You Need to Know About Obamacare in 16 Words

Donald M. Berwick

ObamaCare won't save the economy, it won't make health care more affordable and it won't cause us to live longer, healthier lives.

The "primary function" of Obamacare is to take your power to make your own health care decisions and to give that power to the ruling class. Don't take my word for it:
President Obama's Medicare chief, Dr. Donald Berwick, explains, "Traditional medical ethics, based on the doctor-patient dyad must be reformulated...The primary function of regulation in health care, especially as it affects the quality of medical care, is to constrain decentralized individualized decision making.
Translation: "You're not in charge of your health care. Your doctor is not in charge. We are."

Go read this excellent article for more.

Update: Do you know who has all the right ideas about real health care reform? Read this great piece by Robert Stacy McCain.

Update II: Nothing to see here, move along.

This is what we get for demanding that health care be a "right." Most will learn too late that it's a "wrong."

Well said RK, but it could be shortened to two words....It sucks.

This one sentence says it all.
'This says that physicians must consider "the needs of society" in their clinical decisions.'
The only thing that is 'individual' in Obamacare is the mandate... for the good of 'society'...

Best we can do at this point is to defund this POS.
