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

Chairman Thomas, Commissioners, good afternoon. My name is Michael Cannon and I represent Citizens for a Sound Economy Foundation, a non-profit, non-partisan consumer group with 250,000 members.

Capitol Comment 161 - The Senate and House Kiddycare Schemes Are a Bad Deal for Kids

Parents had better put the kids to bed early this week. Otherwise, youngsters might happen across C-SPAN in time to watch the United States Senate and House of Representatives cast their most damaging votes ever against children's health. Armed with faulty data on the status of children's health coverage, Congress is set to spend $16 billion or more over the next five years to create a new federal "Kiddycare" program. While claiming to provide health coverage for children, Kiddycare will actually waste billions of dollars, and provide no health benefit to children.

Issue Analysis 49 - Never Mind ClintonCare: The Republican Congress is Feeding America Government-Run Health Care - Piece by Pie

In 1994, the American people rejected the Clinton health care plan and others like it that would have substituted the judgment of politicians and bureaucrats for that of patients and their doctors. Yet, that victory has proved short-lived. Today, lawmakers who fought government-run health care three years ago, some of whom even rode into office on the issue, are now its biggest supporters.

Issue Analysis 45 - By Mandating Health Benefits, Congress Will Make Even More Americans Lose Their Health Insurance

In 1996, Congress and President Clinton enacted legislation that requires health insurance companies to provide -- and requires consumers to buy -- certain health benefits. These mandated benefits were hailed as a "consensus" approach to health care reform. Today, a number of additional health benefit mandates are being proposed. This paper discusses how mandated benefits do more harm than good.
