McCain Pushes for Health Care Deregulation

with 10 comments

Cindy McCain has expressed interest in making pharmaceuticals one of her projects as First Lady.

One of my weekend hobbies is reading actuary magazines.  I am sort of an actuary hobbyist.  This morning I was excited to sit down to my new issue of Contingencies which for only about $24 a year is in my mind the Sports Illustrated of actuarial magazines.

The newest issues had a great article by none other than John McCain as it focused on both candidates’ plans for health care.  You could tell it was really written by McCain because he said “my friends” a lot.   In the article McCain explained that the biggest problem we face in health care is people with too much healthcare driving up the costs of services.  He wants to give everybody a $2,500 tax credit for buying healthcare–$5,000 for families to buy their own health care.  He also wants to tax and employer provided health care benefits which is fine with me.

McCain knows that the asnwer to our health care problem in this country isn’t more government, but less.  He wants to put health care in this country on the same sort of sound footing that deregulation has put banking.  As he said in the article, “Opening up the health insurance market to more vigorous nationwide competition, as we have done over the last decade in banking, would provide more choices of innovative products less burdened by the worst excesses of state-based regulation.”  This is truely change we can all believe in.

  1. You know, the US spends more per-capita on health care than any other country. This means that we are the healthiest people in the world. In the United Kingdom, they spend a quarter of what we do, yet they let anybody, even the financially irresponsible, take advantage of treatments that in a real free-market system they would not be able to afford. They therefore have no incentive to to do anything other than rely on the state, and not only that, poor people with cancer linger on well after the US system would have sent them home to let God decide when they should die.

  2. The greatest benefit to preventative care in this country would be to stop health insurance so people would take better care of themselves.

  3. I heard a conservative comment the other day saying that, if universal health is adopted in the US, millions of people would automatically stop working. Do you think that’s true? And, if so, wouldn’t this contradict the notion that Americans are God’s chosen people and the greatest people on Earth? Just asking.

  4. The American people don’t need universal health care. They are healthy.

  5. Oh that’s very true. I look at my employees. If Pedro could get his back looked at for free I guarantee he’d take two weeks off just to lay around and get it fixed. One of my assistant managers Jerry is the same way with his heart medicine. I guarantee the doctor would tell him he needed a desk job.
