ObamaCare, a speeding, crowded express train rolling toward a washed-out bridge, is about to carry, at once, the entire medical care system AND likely the entire US economy into oblivion. This train is Bound for Hell.
There is only one group of people with the credentials to save both the medcial care system and the economy, and that's American Doctors.
To do it, they first have to stop the train. They need to get together through their professional organizations and tell President Obama to freeze the program, then they need to suggest the appropriate changes. They need to tell the President that THEY will end ObamaCare if he doesn't.
The changes to ObamaCare are where it will get tricky. Big Pharma will try to dip their oar in the water, and the doctors must give them the cold shoulder. The insurance companies will of course try to make THEIR changes, but the docs must remember that the insurance companies ran this train off the rails before ObamaCare, and then collaborated with Obama and the Left to re-rail the train and give it the highball without first fixing the brakes. The insurance companies will have to yield, on issues such as portability, pre-existing conditions and tort reform in malpractice. The insurance companies must realize that that they will face maybe a lean decade before the reforms stabilize the system. As much money as the insurance companies have made in recent years, they can afford to play their cards a little closer to the vest.
What to do with ObamaCare? Trim it down to size, and that size is small. It will become the "insurance" ONLY for those at or below the poverty line. It will NOT be mandatory. It WILL be charged off against other subsistence payments.
The Doctors have the smarts. Do they have the survival instinct to form a cohesive unit? Congress tried and failed, the People have spoken repeatedly, in the polling, that they don't like the program, but the Left is intent on crashing the medical care system and likely the economy anyway, just to get that increasing political power that will make them invincible.
The Left is willing to crash the train. The right doesn't know how to save it. This is a hell of a fix. The docs do these fixes, and I know because I was raised by one and I raised one myself.
