VIDEO & pdf File: ObamaCare – One Year Later

Great info below BUT please note that HEALTHCARE is NOT a constitutional duty or responsibility fo the Federal government. This should be completely repealed and defunded, returning the money taken from Medicare, and the money collected for healthcare by the Federal government should be returned to the states.

Also, requiring doctors, or anyone for that matter, to work at a  rate set by the government is slavery. In free countries, free markets are supposed to decide the costs of services and products–not the government, particularly when the government sets a price that does not allow an individual to cover his costs or be reimbursed for the time and money spent on rigorous education.


Video & Replace & Ten Necessary Changes .pdf file from March 18, 2011 by John C. Goodman and Newt Gingrich.

It’s been almost a year since the House of Representatives passed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare. On Friday, NCPA President John C. Goodman will join former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Ethics and Public Policy Center Fellow James Capretta at a National Press Club event in assessing:

  • The worst features of ObamaCare
  • Identifying which of its features should be repealed and replaced
  • Assessing whether Republicans, or even other Democrats, have viable alternatives

In testimony last week before the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health, Dr. Goodman has identified 10 changes to the law that are necessary:

  1. An impossible mandate
  2. A bizarre system of subsidies
  3. Perverse incentives for insurers
  4. Perverse incentives for individuals
  5. Impossible expectations/a tattered safety net
  6. Impossible benefit cuts for seniors
  7. Impossible burden for the states
  8. Lack of portability
  9. Over-regulated patients
  10. Over-regulated doctors

If you can only listen to one of these videos, listen to part 5–though all are well worth the time. Listen to what he says. We may disagre with the candidates Mr. Gingrich as chosen to support, but there is much wisdom we can learn from him nonetheless.

If you’d like to hear them all in order, click on “more for Parts 1-4.

Apologies. I listened to this this afternoon, but when we went to play Part 2 at the meeting tonight, it had been pulled off of youtube. These are links that Greg was able to find online that still work.
