Burdens of regulatory fat

BY Matt Kibbe

After Hurricane Katrina, very few members of Congress have stepped forward with a meaningful plan for paying what's already an astronomical tab, other than driving America deeper into the red. While the hurricane relief debt steadily climbs, only a few members have dared suggest this spending be offset by reducing ever so slightly some of the taxpayer billions spent on pork-barrel special interest programs.

The Vermont Report 10/21/05

FreedomFest a Success FreedomFest 2005 was an energy filled event attended by 150 center right activists. Gov. Douglas, Lt Gov Dubie, US Senate candidates Rich Tarrant and Sen. Mark Shepard all made appearances. The day’s keynote speaker, Steven Moore of the Wall Street Journal editorial page, was outstanding. He has since written two articles about his experiences in Vermont, including an interview with Governor Douglas and “Ice Cream Hangover,” a hysterical and insightful account of his tour of the Ben & Jerry’s factory in Waterbury.

Uncle Sam and the Bed Pan Question

This piece was originally published on Townhall.com on October 18, 2005. Health care costs continue to skyrocket nationwide, driving up government spending at double digit rates and hurting American economic competitiveness. But, instead of addressing this crisis head on by passing medical malpractice tort reform and pro-competition policies like medical savings accounts, the federal health care bureaucracy is getting ready to add new mandates and regulations that will further drive up the cost of providing health care.

Uncle Sam and the Bed Pan Question

BY Matt Kibbe

Health care costs continue to skyrocket nationwide, driving up government spending at double digit rates and hurting American economic competitiveness. But, instead of addressing this crisis head on by passing medical malpractice tort reform and pro-competition policies like medical savings accounts, the federal health care bureaucracy is getting ready to add new mandates and regulations that will further drive up the cost of providing health care. The latest onerous regulation is Hospital CAHPS (HCAPHS), which will pile unnecessary new burdens on our nation's hospitals with no discernable benefit. HCAHPS is a survey on hospital care dreamed up by Medicare and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). Bureaucrats at these two departments have decided that all hospitals participating in Medicare—virtually every one in the nation—should "voluntarily" post patient responses to a new quality survey on the Medicare website. It is an exercise in regulatory overkill that expert after expert has indicated will actually hinder its supposed goal.

Health Care Forum Update: Three Down, Three to Go The Governor’s second Health Care forum took place in Lyndonville on Wednesday, September 8th, the third in Rutland on the 15th. The events have attracted such pro-government-run heavyweights, Dr. Deb Richter, Democrat gubernatorial candidate, Scudder Parker, and a cadre of well organized liberal activists. It continues to be critical for members of our side to show up and be vocal as well.

Health care reform criticism baseless

BY Walter Carpenter

I want to thank Robert Roper, of Freedom Works-Vermont, for his criticism of my essay on the Vermont Legislature's proposed health care reform. Mr. Roper's critique, published in the Aug. 15 issue of The Times Argus, completely missed or ignored the concerns that I raised about the Health Care Choice Act while simultaneously illustrating what lies at the core of our whole health care problem: Who can afford it?
