With the ongoing national debate over healthcare reform it’s interesting that preventative health measures, such as dietary supplements, have not made it to the forefront of the conversation. If the goal of Obamacare is healthier Americans, there are surely far less costly fundamental reforms we could be pushing instead of overhauling one sixth of the […]
Thousands of home health agencies throughout the United States have participated in the Home Healthcare – Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems or HH-CAHPS Survey. However, starting next year many of these agencies will be mandated to implement a patient experience survey with their hospice care. The planned CMS hospice survey differs from other […]
Obama says there was no “hard sell” for Obamacare. The $700 million he spent advertising it says otherwise.
(Fox News appearance 4/3/14) From the moment he rammed Obamacare through Congress, the President has treated this like one of his political campaigns.

Many people, especially the news media, are asking why Sen. Ted Cruz has taken the route of a marathon speech on the floor of the Senate to protest Obamacare, knowing there is little he can do to stop the vote from occurring. The reason is simple. Sen. Ted Cruz has decided it is more important […]
It’s pretty difficult to get 9 out of 10 people to agree on something. There’s always at least a few people who just feel the need to have a dissenting opinion, regardless of the topic. So when it comes out that 92% of federal employees prefer their current healthcare plan to Obamacare, it says […]
Thanks to The Telegraph in Great Britain for this excellent article on the death rates in the British National Health Service. As it turns out, socialized medicine isn’t quite the amazing solution to healthcare that liberals claim it is. If I had the choice between socialized medicine where I was 45% more likely to die, or […]
It shouldn’t be a secret to any of our readers that Obamacare has not been met with welcome arms by, well, just about anybody. Representatives don’t want it for themselves, nor do the Senators.
