Tips in navigating the system

I found a most practical article yesterday, detailing options that average Americans are not aware of as they consider health care options. It is written by a doctor, who contributes to Breitbart.

Here are the headings, but read the details using this link to Eight Ways to Opt Out of Obamacare. I'll hazard a guess that you, like the average Americans including myself, are not aware of all these options let alone what they mean.

1. Join a health care sharing ministry
2. Purchase a short-term health insurance policy
3. Buy alternative insurance plans
4. Visit cash-only doctors and retail health clinics for primary care.
5. Sign up for a telemedicine service
6. Use generic prescription drugs whenever possible, and compare prices between pharmacies.
7. For surgery, Parnell recommends going to a facility that offers up-front “package” prices for self-pay patients
8. When a hospital visit becomes necessary, Parnell suggests working with amedical bill negotiation service

Obamacare Exposed!

Charles Krauthammer wrote an excellent article explaining in detail what Obamacare is and does. I knew all these things myself, but he does the topic justice. I found his column here. I wish I could copy and paste the entire thing because I literally can't cut any of it out for you - it's that important. Please use the link.

'Mitt'

Netflix has this documentary premiering at Sundance in January (trailer available here), shortly after which it will be available to the public. One of Romney's friends was in charge and I'm excited to watch it.

Here's what the Washington Post had to say about it:
“If Romney had released a video like this, perhaps things would've turned out differently,” The Washington Post’s Brian Fung wrote. "In 138 seconds, Whiteley's trailer somehow manages to make Romney more of a real person than all the stumping he did."
Now, Washington Post. Let's not forget your job in 2008 and again in 2012 - it was to make sure Obama was elected. You could have made Romney more "real" if that was truly your object - just as you and other media made Obama "messianic" in both campaigns - feeding his now apparent narcissism.

Therefore what you, media, focused on during the Romney campaigns was not his many strengths and good character and experience, but his "failures" both real and imagined. If similar attention had been paid to Obama, we would have noticed Obama's lack of experience as a leader and his close ties to Saul Alinsky, and by 2012 could have paid much more attention to his many failures in office such as Fast and Furious, Benghazi, annual trillion dollar deficits, more troops killed in Afghanistan under Obama than under all of Bush, Obamacare (which was written before, even if it was written to be implemented after the election so people who hadn't read it wouldn't know how bad it is... ). I could go on. But I won't.

We missed a great opportunity to have a president who is strong in character, leadership skills, budget cutting skills, and is compassionate all wrapped up into one.

Healthcare

Ann Coulter's weekly column touches on my favorite topic, as well as battling the idiocy of the "logic" of liberal postures - please read it. Here's the intro:
Instead of always taking incoming fire, how about Republicans start sending some back? It's great that they stopped HillaryCare, but if they had actually fixed health care by forcing health insurance plans to be sold in a competitive free market, there would have been no opportunity for shyster Democrats to foist Obamacare on us.
