Let’s get real. Repealing Obamacare is an exercise in futility. It is like spinning your wheels and achieving nothing. We now have a compelling case to present to the electorate CadillacCare, the alternative to Obamacare. We should create a situation where the people are given the option to choose what they need, not necessarily what the government wants.
This much is obvious: Opponents of Obamacare don’t have much courage. If they did, Obamacare would already be gone. In order to push Obama hard enough to induce full repeal, they’ll have to go to the mat and shut down the government, much like Newt Gingrich did to Bill Clinton.
CadillacCare consists of reality-based, solution-driven recommendations to create order in the American chaotic health care situation. They are specific policy procedures to improve the health care delivery system in every state. They are grounded policies that are more than patches and can serve as pathways toward a high performing health system throughout the United States.
CadillacCare proposals are like the starfish – they regenerate themselves. They will provide health care coverage and at the same time generate income to every state.
CadillacCare is the ultimate health care reform for job growth and job creation. It will provide universal primary coverage, no exceptions, and no exclusions to all men, women and children at no extra cost. [FYI the United States is the only industrialized nation in the world without a health care system that provides universal primary coverage]. CadillacCare is comprehensive, innovative, and cost effective.
CadillacCare brings back patient care to doctors. The medical facility/hospital comprised of physicians and other health care providers will call the shot and run the show. CadillacCare is cut to the chaise, straight to the point. It will level the playing field when it comes to health care. The 54 million Medicare beneficiaries will pay only $70 a month [prescription drugs included] to their HMOs.
We should not over promise and under deliver like Obamacare, which is being touted around. Let’s not forget that the three bedrock requirements for real health care reform are to reduce costs, guarantee choice, and ensure affordable care for all. These three benchmarks are what CadillacCare abide by.
The impact and ripple effect of CadillacCare will be immediate and expedient as the implementation process will take only three months in three stages:
1st month – providers’ registration (all medical facilities /hospitals, clinics in the state) will have to register with the state’s managed care office if they can provide or subcontract all the services provided in the plan.
2nd month – conciliatory meeting between providers and payers [Medicare, Medicaid and employers] regarding monthly contribution to the HMOs as well as the co-pay.
3rd month – open enrollment of members by zip code, or up to the 30-mile radius.
We should have an ironclad commitment to stop Obamacare dead in its tracks. Let’s wear down the competition by its October 2013 large scale enrollment target date. We cannot be complaisant, happily sitting by from dawn to dusk, slacking off, unwilling to stand up to Obama’s pattern of deception about health care.
We have to work incredibly hard to reinforce the message in all Republican districts – CadillacCare is in town! The message should be the main theme in your August 2013 town hall meetings.
