Don’t confuse Obamacare with Colorado’s healthcare reform

Medical Economics
President Barack Obama’s plan is to push American health care down the path toward socialized medicine. According to a recent Quinnipiac poll, a majority of Americans now disapprove of Obama’s health care plan, and around 75 percent of those polled flatly reject assurances from the White House that Obamacare will be “deficit neutral.” It is against this backdrop that the president arrived in Grand Junction, Colorado, yesterday, to pitch his socialized medical health plan. But, don't be fooled by his rhetoric. More Information: (more…)

Health Myth #10: Preventive Medicine Saves Money

Bioethics, Medical Missions
According to a column by Charles Krauthammer, MD, "Obama (touts) prevention as amazingly dual-purpose: 'It saves lives. It also saves money.' Reform proponents repeat this like a mantra. Because it seems so intuitive, it has become conventional wisdom. But like most conventional wisdom, it is wrong. Overall, preventive care increases medical costs." Can this be true?

Americans continue to confront lawmakers at healthcare town halls

Bioethics, Medical Economics
In my August 3 blog, I joined other conservative leaders in encouraging you to be sure to contact your congressmen during their August recess back home. I said, “. . . you have August to attend town hall meetings with your representative and senators, stop by their congressional offices, write letters to the editor of your local paper(s), and educate your friends and family members about the dangers of ObamaCare.” Apparently conservatives have heard the message. And, the initial effect has been dramatic and noticed by the national news media. And, more and more of us are politely, but firmly, letting our elected officials know of our concerns. And, we're having an effect. More Information: (more…)

Under Obamacare bureaucrats would play God

Bioethics, Medical Economics
In my blog of three days ago, "One side says no ‘death panel’ in health care bill," I showed you an Associated Press story that blasted critics of Obamacare who claim that a “death panel” would make life and death decisions if President Barack Obama’s health care plan becomes law. The story’s lead mentioned a Facebook post by former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. Her inflammatory message spoke of a “death panel” that could determine the fate of her Down Syndrome child. Was she right or wrong? More Information: (more…)

Television Viewing Linked to Blood Pressure Increases in Children

Children's Health, Heart Health, Parenting
In the past I've discussed the studies showing that the more screen time kids have (TV, Internet, video games, cell phone), the more likely they are to be overweight or obese, the less sleep they will get, and the less well they will do in school. Now, new research is showing that children who spend a lot of time watching television have higher blood pressure than those who watch less, even if the children are thin and get enough exercise.

President Barack Obama's administration has released a new web site to supposedly debunk the myths opponents are using to criticize the Congressional health care proposals he supports.
