Effective health care delivery

-- Effective health care delivery --

* Basic treatments for all. Better coverage is paid by individual. We encourage folks to work hard and there is no more free lunch. The government can spend an agreed % of GNP on public health care.

* Prevention: voluntary and non-voluntary (via taxes) on smoking, fast food...

* Limit lawsuit award on malpractice.

* State-of-the-art treatments are less effective than prevention such as a low-dosage aspirin for all over 50 years of age.

* Outsourcing expensive treatments to foreign countries and drug development/clinical tests.

* Cut down expensive drug marketing (like giving money/goodies to doctors).

* Stop illegals and foreigners from using our medical systems free.

Import foreign doctors and nurses is the worst we can do to a poor country.

Before we send soldiers abroad or explore space, should we solve our home problems such as health care first?

  1. We can learn from EU why their health care is better and far cheaper than us. Copy cat is OK if we do it right.
