The First Dozen Questions About Government-Run Health Care

Last week, Thursday April 21st, the Vermont House voted 86-58, largely along party lines, to put the lives and well-being of all 620,000 Vermonters into the hands of a government-run, taxpayer funded health care system – a type of system that has failed everywhere it has ever been tried. That they did this at all – let alone without addressing even the most basic and obvious flaws regarding this plan -- is beyond irresponsible. It is negligent.

Government Run Health Care Coming to a Vote

VERMONT. The House Democratic leadership expects to bring H. 524, which seeks to impose a Canadian-style, government run and taxpayer financed health care plan on Vermont, to the House floor for a vote by the middle of next week. By doing so, they will begin the process of putting the lives of all 620,000 Vermonters in the hands of a system that has failed everywhere it has ever been tried. The tab for this misguided experiment will require at least $2 billion in new taxes. Personal income and payroll taxes are the likely targets for substantial increases.

Creating a Health Care Marketplace

February 24, 2005 Honorable George W. Bush President of the United States of America The White House 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., NW Washington, DC Dear President Bush: Mr. President, on February 8, 2005, you stated, “We should create a national marketplace for health insurance, so people can shop on the Internet across state lines to get high-quality coverage at lower prices. That makes sense, doesn't it? To break down barriers to create a marketplace for the consumer when it comes to health care.” Yes, it does.

Good Medicine?

Health care continues to be a significant issue, even in the wake of the sweeping new billion-dollar prescription drug entitlement signed into law by President Bush last year. While Americans have access to the best health care system in the world, the current third-party payer structure of the health care market has led to significant upward pressure on health care costs, because there are few incentives in the system to contain spending. Both public health care and private health care are in need of serious reform. For many looking to cut costs, purchasing low-cost drugs from Canada or other nations seems like a quick fix for the high price of health care. Unfortunately, re-importing drugs threatens future innovations that can improve the quality of health care in America, while ignoring the more fundamental reforms that are required.

Governmental control could hurt patient care

BY Alice Click

WOULD you rather have the government or your doctor prescribing the drugs you need for heart disease and cancer? West Virginia will be forced to use cheaper drugs that are often not as effective as original drugs if Gov. Bob Wise gets the pharmaceutical plan he wants. When the government buys drugs, it must ration them. The Wise plan could be costly and a deadly mistake. - advertisement-

Michigan State Senator Nancy Cassis Offers Care & Competitiveness Package

State Senator Nancy Cassis (R-Novi) has crafted a package of bills to amend Michigan’s Single Business Tax (SBT). Michigan’s burdensome SBT has been a job killer and currently taxes employers on the health care benefits paid to employees. The Cassis package eases the tax burden and makes health care more affordable, by removing the “health care add-back” from the SBT. Employers would no longer be taxed for doing the right thing by providing health care benefits. CSE members support this important package of bills.
