Articles About Healthcare

The only person you should put your full faith in is… You. Make decisions for yourself rather than “trusting’ someone else, especially self-styled experts and our politicians who invariably have a personal agenda that doesn’t include you.

Good decisions are based on hard evidence. That is what Dr. Waldman offers you here: the proofs for what he writes. Read both the books and articles, and decide for yourself.

From magical thinking to thinking systems; highlighting the doctor shortage, the unfunded mandate, and the insurance principle; explaining what TLC means in Washington as well as how medical rationing and the VA system kill patients; to Obamacare success that will be the death of us. See why Dr. Waldman writes what he writes and decide if you agree or disagree.

Magical Thinkers in Washington

If you ever wondered how our “people” in Washington come up with their ridiculous ideas and turn them into laws, here is your answer.

Thinking Systems Need Systems Thinking

Why doesn’t Medicare send us monthly checks the way Social Security does? Seriously, read this article and think about it.

TLC — Washington Style

In Washington, “TLC” means the opposite of “tender loving care.” Learn why it matters to you, very very much.

Doctors Refuse To Accept Medicare Patients

Left to its own devices, Medicare “won’t be there for us.” Not only will there be no money, there already are no doctors

Study:  Nearly A Third Of Doctors Won’t See New Medicaid Patients

This is another must-read article not written by me. At the same time as Obamacare gave “free” Medicaid insurance to millions of Americans, there are fewer doctors to care for them. How is that good for our health?

Medicare Is Doomed — Save the Patients

An honest look at the structure and financing of Medicare shows how and why it is doomed. We need to think about how to save the patients from Medicare’s inevitable demise.

Can Healthcare Success be Health Care Disaster?

Obamacare adds millions of Americans to the rolls of the newly insured: this is what the President calls “success.” Meanwhile, there are fewer and fewer doctors to care for them. That is what we all call a disaster.

With Tax Season Approaching, the Affordable Care Act Is the Only Thing Inside Your Wallet

Few Americans understand that ACA is primarily a TAX bill. Read the evidence that proves Obamacare should really be called “ObamaTax.”
