Capitol Comment 173 - 'Gag Clauses' in Managed Care Contracts: If It's Already Fixed, Don't Fix It

In September, President Clinton told a union audience he was proud of his 1994 attempt to impose a government-run health care system on America — in effect putting a government bureaucrat between every American and their doctor. He then told the audience how he intends to implement his failed health care take-over one piece at a time: "Maybe we can do it ... a step at a time, until eventually we finish this." The next few "steps" down the road to ClintonCare include one sponsored by Iowa Republican Rep. Greg Ganske in a bill called the "Patient Right to Know Act" (H.R. 586).

Issue Analysis 68 - Clinton's Health Care

What about the rights of the 600,000 Americans who would lose their health coverage if Clinton's health care "Bill of Rights" becomes law? Before a medical student becomes a doctor, he or she must take the Hippocratic Oath, a medical code of ethics that begins, "First, do no harm." In contrast, members of President Clinton's Advisory Commission on Consumer Protection and Quality in the Health Care Industry took no such oath.

The AARP Wishes Grandma An Unhealthy New Year

Members of the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) may be surprised to learn what the AARP’s Washington lobbyists are trying to do to seniors’ Medicare coverage. The AARP’s 32 million members include millions of Medicare beneficiaries. Yet, the AARP is supporting a plan to drastically restrict Medicare beneficiaries’ choice of doctors.

Dr. Ganske's Prescription for Government-Run Health Care

This past September, President Clinton told a union audience he was proud of his 1994 attempt to put a government bureaucrat between every American and their doctor. He then told the audience how he intends to implement his failed health care take-over one piece at a time: "Maybe we can do it . . . a step at a time, until eventually we finish this."

President’s ‘Bill of Rights’ a Cruel Hoax

Before a medical student becomes a doctor, he or she must take the Hippocratic Oath, a medical code of ethics that begins, "First, do no harm." In contrast, members of presidential commissions take no such oaths, as evidenced by the "Consumer Bill of Rights" unveiled recently by President Clinton’s Advisory Commission on Consumer Protection and Quality in the Health Care Industry.

Capitol Comment 172 - How the Balanced Budget Act Will Soon Cut Off Medicare Beneficiaries' Choice of Doctors

Americans have always taken pride in being the freest people in the world. As recently as 1994, the American public recoiled at the thought of receiving health care through a socialist system similar to Great Britain's. Among that system's many horrors, "more than one million patients are waiting for surgery in Britain, for everything from tonsillectomies to heart bypasses to exploratory surgery for cancer."1
