Capitol Comment 202 - A Health Care Checklist for Congress and President Clinton: Time to Clean Up Your Mistakes

Members of Congress have only a few weeks before they go home and learn whether voters want them to return to Washington or stay put. Though they have much to do between now and Election Day, Congress and the president need to correct three dangerous errors they made that are threatening America’s health care. Mistake #1: Crippling Patient Access to Medical Savings Accounts.

Capitol Comment 193 - A Real Patients’ Bill of Rights

America’s health care system is the finest in the world, yet American patients increasingly face higher costs, fewer choices and greater rationing of medical care. A recent news item describes how politicians typically address these problems: Democrats are often more willing to spend money on new or existing government programs and to regulate the insurance market, while Republicans usually prefer to use the tax code as an instrument of social policy.1

Issue Analysis 71 - The "Patient Access to Responsible Care Act": Trojan Horse of ClintonCare

Supporters of the "Patient Access to Responsible Care Act" (PARCA) claim it would protect patients from managed care plans that deny necessary care for the sake of higher profits. It would do no such thing. Rather, PARCA would implement major portions of the radical Clinton health plan and devastate the health coverage of millions of Americans:

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.

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.
