am becoming weary of the continuous political games President Obama and
Congress are playing.
Obama does best on playing the blame game.
do not know how to deal with President Obama.
we approach another Debt Ceiling increase neither the President, congress or
the press are discussing the major problems the country faces.
of the major problems is government waste in all departments and all agencies.
waste is reproduced by multiple agencies creating an increasing number of bureaucracies
leading to additional regulations. Some regulations are difficult to understand
and many impossible to enforce.
inability to enforce regulations leads to more agencies and greater waste.
unsustainable entitlement spending for Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security
are the key drivers of America’s deficit spending.
these entitlements were originally constructed properly they would be cost effective
and sustainable. They would not be a threat to America’s solvency.
would be actual trust funds. They are presently virtual trust funds. The
government borrows the money collected in the name of the trusts from the trust
funds in order fund increased government spending.
Social Security and Medicare Trust Fund receive unsecured government obligation
bonds the trust funds cannot call.
the two funds are left to pay their obligation on a pay you go basis. As
Medicare and Social Security rolls increases and longevity increases there will
be more recipients than funders of Medicare and Social Security.
“under-informed society” is not aware of these facts. No one has explained it
clearly enough to create a consumer reaction.
Most of the
regulations pretend to add value to the healthcare system. However they all
make the healthcare system more complex and complicated. The regulations
decrease the ability of physicians to help patients get well and stay healthy.
regulations create industries for secondary stakeholders. These secondary
stakeholders make more money from the bureaucratic healthcare system.
