Politicians Give Me A Headache

Comments (5)

I don’t write much about politics on this blog.  Like father, like son – politicians (and politics) give me a headache.  However, I love to pimp my father’s blog and he’s got a great post up today titled John McCain Describes His Health Plan; In Reality A Non Health Plan. 

For the past few months, my dad – a retired endocrinologist and now healthcare pundit – has been inspecting, dissecting, and commenting on what the various presidential candidates have been saying about healthcare.  He’s got plenty of stuff on Obama, Clinton, and McCain.  It’s a compendium of uniformly dismal, sad, and disappointing non-solutions. 

While he doesn’t write short posts, if you are interested in original thinking in this area from someone who has a lifetime of experience practicing, thinking about, helping to reform, and experience the healthcare system, you should spend some time with Stan Feld’s Repairing the Healthcare System

As a special bonus, if you are involved in the Obama campaign and want some tips, I know Stan is game to help.

    If Stan was really interested in the solving the problem and not simply *politics*…wouldn't he be interested in helping any of the candidates on the issue? True colors.

      The Obama comment was my editorial comment. I'm sure Stan would be game to help any candidate that is interested in actually addressing / solving the problems.

    MJH, my thoughts exactly. I'm not a McCain supporter, but if his camp was to reach out, realizing that your Dad is father is _right on target_ [my thoughts], he wouldn't help?

      I’m sure my dad would be happy to help with McCain camp also.

    Healthcare has the potential of bringing about the next wave of fascism as healthy people put pressure on governments to cut off the sick and the eldery in order to “save” the system. In that light, putting more control in the hands of the government seems a bit short-sighted doesn't it?
