U.S. Standard of Living Unsustainable Without Drastic Action - David Walker

March 31, 2010 – Comments (18)

David Walker, former Comptroller General of the United States was, in my opinion, the only government official appointed within the last couple decades that was truly qualified for his position.  He has been stating for years that the government is an ever-growing titanic headed for a large debt iceberg. When he left the GAO I was devastated because now this administration is practically devoid of a sensible voice when it comes to our fiscal policy.  There are a few dissendents but they are either too quiet for they are being completely ignored.  He continues to discuss America's fiscal situation but I doubt anyone is really listening.I would think people would listen to the man who used to be responsible for preparing the Government's financial statements.  If I could vote this guy as Comptroller General again I would.  I think he would make a great cabinet member.   [more]



Healthcare Reform - The missing link

Below are a list of articles that were posted prior the November 2008 elections. I posted these in Cato's blog yesterday but I dont think many people got to see them.   The healthcare industry recognized that healthcare costs were too high and were already coming up with ways to lower them.  However after the current administration was elected, these stories disappeared.  I applaud the efforts of employers and insurance companies trying to lower healthcare costs by giving incentives to the consumer to be healthy.  Unfortunately these measures are completely missing from the current healthcare law.   [more]

Healthcare Reform - Whats in a name?

March 05, 2010 – Comments (9)

So I finally did it.  I held my nose and read the most recent version of the healthcare reform proposal. I was reading it in hopes that maybe, just maybe, this big bill that they are going to shove down our throats whether we like it or not may actually have some good proposals in it.  As I was reading I noticed one glaring fact.  This is not healthcare reform.  Its health insurance reform.  Every single proposal has to do with health insurance. Nothing addresses the actual healthcare.  Yet we call it healthcare reform.    [more]
