There’s No Such Thing as a Free Launch

"If you put the federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in five years there'd be a shortage of sand." — Milton FriedmanAs President Obama took office in 2009, I sold electronic health records, which track a patient’s medical history by computer instead of by hand. For a couple of decades, companies like mine had helped medical providers save money while they improved their patients’ quality of care. Once we installed and launched EHR software at a doctor’s office or hospital, it was a win for everyone.

The Regulatory Landscape in America - A Morass Of Red Tape Designed To Create A Command Economy

Yesterday, I reported on the volume of regulations headed our way in 2013 that rivals Darth Vader's Galactic Empire for sheer size, as well as oppressiveness. Today, The Heritage Foundation is out with its Top 10 Regulations of 2012:

We Need Lazy Politicians

“Do Something.” “Do Something!” “We have to DO SOMETHING!”Whenever a problem arises, be it an incomprehensible tragedy like Newtown or an imperfection in our economy, those in government and their media enablers are the first to cry, “do something.”

Will Obamacare Really Solve The "Uninsured" Problem?

Last week, I wrote about The New Republic claiming that Obamacare was already a success because the number of uninsured people in the United States had slightly dropped. Of course, the purported goal of the Affordable Care Act is to make sure that everyone has insurance. That was the intent behind the mandate that's now a tax or penalty or whatever. Is it going to work?Probably not.

Meet the New HMO -- Same as the Old HMO

Dean Clancy is right that health reform debate is about only two basic alternatives -- the HMO or the HSA. Reform either comes with top down, authoritarian price controls and foolish attempts to control the market with bureaucratic systems like Health Maintenance Organizations, or with a thin layer of structure to allow free people to make their own decisions, as happens with Health Savings Accounts.

BREAKING: Waste, Fraud, Abuse Uncovered In State Health Program

Every once in a while, the paper of record here in Oregon comes up with an interesting article that puts the hood up on our state government and gives it a going over. Granted, a regular maintenance plan should include far more frequent tune ups and oil changes, but when they remember to look at that little sticker in the corner of their windshield, they can be very diligent when they finally get in to the mechanic.

Obamacare: It's The Bureaucracy, Stupid

While being interviewed by a progressive author for a book about conservatives a few years ago, I was asked why I thought the government shouldn't be running health care in America. I replied that it wasn't so much that I thought it shouldn't but that I thought it couldn't, at least with any semblance of efficiency or cost-effectiveness.
