Repeal & replace? Members of Congress have no idea how to do it! Self serving bureaucrats have no clue as to how to manage/control a budget, efficiently resolve problems, or measure success.

We must all keep in mind that politicians and business professionals have entirely different mindset. We have just elected a President who is a dynamic business person that is accustomed to identifying problems and implementing solutions.

Unlike the hapless community organizer that repeatedly implemented chaos with his cell phone and the stroke of his pin, Donald Trump expects plans to be crafted and implemented using the people resources he knows can do the job. Little does he know that isn’t what he inherited in the U.S. Congress.

Unfortunately, most of Congress is comprised of career politicians that have spent decades making promises and focusing on their internal tactics to remain in power.

When posed with a real problem like repealing and replacing the disaster know as “Obamcare”… they look like deer in the headlights. This is precisely why it should be illegal for any congressman, senator or judge to be entrenched for a lifetime. The same bozos that failed to stop or fix it previously are still there.  Congress

It has been proven these self serving bureaucrats have no clue as to how to manage/control a budget, efficiently resolve problems, or measure success.

Healthcare issues should not be under government control in the first place. How can anyone expect these clueless politicians that have exempted themselves from the disaster they created be able to provide a better solution? This is just one reason why Term Limits and no Lifetime Pensions are needed.

When Trump spoke about repeal and replace, he obviously didn’t understand how the system of government in this country has evolved into a crony based pool of old blithering idiots.

Video: Trump addresses the media on 1/11/17 on Obamacare. “It’s imploding.” Repeal & replace will be simultaneous. “We are doing [Democrats] a tremendous service…”

Donald Trump of all people should know you can’t entrust 20% of the economy to people that have no responsibility or accountability for the outcome. The massive government control healthcare structure enacted was doomed from day one and anyone with basic common sense recognized it.

RepealObamacare_150415-1250x650Healthcare like so many other inefficient government run activities should be reverted to the private sector where competition, efficiency, expertise and management skills ensure success or failure based on performance.

Healthcare providers and pharmaceutical companies should be operated in such a way as to ensure the best value (price + service) leading to affordable care. Massive scale healthcare consortiums must be eliminated to prevent monopolistic practices and industry dominance.

Unlike general business, when hospitals and medical services fail to provide quality service… people die. Industry standards for maintaining the highest level of care at the most affordable rate should be gauged by impartial watchdogs similar to Underwriters Labs, IEEE, Better Business Bureau, etc. Stop this too big to fail garbage.

The consumer also must be given certain responsibilities as well, because no efficient organization can survive if the services are improperly used or abused.

Healthcare is not an entitlement; it is a mutual effort between care givers and patients to be proactive in the prevention of disease and most underlying health issues. Unless and until this is comprehended, healthcare will remain in a political stalemate full of promises while the problem and its cost get worse.
