- Americans eat too much of the wrong kind of food, resulting in obscenely high obesity rates for the country.
- Our food chain is infested with overdoses of high fructose corn syrup, salt, and other unhealthy additives.
- Americans smoke too much.
- Americans do not exercise enough.
- The country is in serious need of health care tort reform.
- Barriers to insurance company competition across state lines need to come down.
- Obama Care never “followed the money” to find out who is actually profiting from the ever escalating healthcare costs in this country and how to get those factors under control.
- Obama Care never got the immense amount of fraud and abuse in current government healthcare programs, Medicare and Medicaid, under control in order to save money to efficiently fund other government health care initiatives.
- Obama Care never put serious research money towards curing the major diseases that drive high healthcare costs such as high frequency cancers and dementia type diseases.
- A recent study found that despite many more Americans having health insurance, one in three (33%) "went without recommended care, did not see a doctor when sick, or failed to fill prescriptions because of costs."
- But in 2009, prior to Obama Care being enacted, 29% of those surveyed answered the same way.
- Thus, six years after Obama Care went into effect, more Americans went without medical despite needing it.
- Which is really not surprising since many Obama Care policies have deductibles in the thousands of dollars.
- The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid recently reported that health care spending in the United States grew 5.8% in 2015, multiple times higher than the rate of inflation.
- In total, the country spent a record $3.2 TRILLION in 2015.
- This comes out to about $9,960 for every person in the country, up from $9,523 in 2014.
- And much of that total and a majority of that increase percentage fell on the Federal government and the American taxpayer: “Federal government spending on health increased 8.9 percent in 2015 after growing 11.0 percent in 2014, and outpaced all other sponsors of health care in both years,” the Centers found. “In 2015, the federal government was the largest sponsor of health care at 29 percent, up from 28 percent in 2014 and 26 percent in 2013.”
- Over a third of total health care spending in 2015 was paid for by Medicare and Medicaid with Medicare cost the American taxpayer $646.2 billion and Medicaid costing $545.1 billion.
