Why Is Our Health Care System So Bad?

Download PDF Version

That is very simple to answer. Any healthcare law that is based on a 1000+ page bill is filled with elaborate skimming operation placed there by the parties who lobby to get the bill passed. The Affordable Care Act is a huge collection of skimming operations that do nothing but impoverish American citizens.

When a bill like this hits congress, it is important to understand why the bill is there and who lobbied to get it passed. It wasn’t ordinary citizens. Finding out who actually wrote the bill is almost impossible. What it is is a feeding frenzy on federal money and all the benefits go to the top. Lifespans of Americans started declining as soon as the law was fully in effect. That is no surprise.

Where did Americans get the idea that owning health insurance constitutes having healthcare? Is it reasonable that government provide health care? It is reasonable if the majority of citizens deem it to be a good thing. It is a good thing to have a safety net for sure. Doing that does not mean the end of the free market system any more than having a fire department does.

Who complains about ever rising costs of fire departments? Surely someone does, but I haven’t found one. The difference is that government just pays for a fire department without requiring everyone to buy fire prevention insurance.

Government can pay for healthcare the same way. But, who is interested in that? Opinion is that we must allow the insurance industry and everyone else with massive political power to participate in the enormous economic feeding frenzy that ensues.

Our healthcare system is bad because citizens are willing to have it the way it is. I have personally cited an unbelievably efficient system that eliminates that eliminates the mush and corporate feeding frenzy. However, it is not lobbyist friendly. There is no such thing as free healthcare. There are good ways to provide healthcare on a collective basis. None of those are even up for consideration. Nothing will get better as long as lobbyists write bills. Your representatives can actually write bills. They just don’t. Citizens can also write bills and have there representatives take them to the floor. The fact is that, they don’t and do not seem interested.

The truth is a hard sell. Fantasy Free Economics gains readers one at a time. Major search engines simply do not list blogs which disagree with their political agenda. As long as folks share the link to this blog and others speaking out against the grain, the truth will at least trickle into the public consciousness.

About Fantasy Free Economics

James Quillian independent scholar,free market economist,and teacher of natural law. Who is James Quillian? Certainly I am nobody special, Just a tireless academic and deep thinker. Besides that, I have broken the code with respect to economics and political science. Credentials? Nothing you would be impressed with. I am not a household name. It is hard to become famous writing that virtually no one in the country is genuinely not in touch with reality. But, if I did not do that, there would be no point in my broking the broken the code. If you read the blog, it is easy to see that there are just a few charts, no math and no quantitative analysis. That is not by accident. Given what I know, those items are completely useless. I do turn out to be highly adept at applying natural law. Natural law has predominance over any principles the social science comes up. By virtue of understanding natural law, I can debunk, in just a few sentences , any theory that calls for intervention by a government. My taking the time to understand the ins and outs of Keynes General Theory is about like expecting a chemistry student to completely grasp all that the alchemists of the middle ages thought they understood in efforts to turn base metals into goal. Keynesian theory clearly calls for complete objectivity. Government can only make political decisions. Keynesian techniques call for economic decisions. So, why go any further with that? Fantasy Free Economics is in a sense a lot like technical analysis. Technical analysis began with the premise that it was impossible to gain enough information studying fundamentals to gain a trading advantage. Study the behavior of investors instead. Unlike technical analysis, I don't use technical charts. What I understand are the incentives of different people and entities active in the economics arena. For example, there is no such thing as an incentive to serve with life in the aggregate. In the aggregate, only self interest applies. It is routinely assumed otherwise. That is highly unappealing. But, I am sorry. That is the way it is. I can accept that because I am genuinely in touch with reality. Step one in using Fantasy Free Economics is for me to understand just how little I really know. A highly credentialed economist may know 100 times what I do based on the standard dogma. Compare the knowledge each of us has compared to all there is to know and we both look like we know nothing at all. There is always more than we don't know than what we do know. I am humble enough to present myself on that basis. Why? That is the way it is. I am not bad at math. I have taught math. What I understand is when to use it and when to rely on something else. Math is useless in natural law so I don't use it. While others look at numbers, I am busy understanding the forces in nature that makes their numbers what they are. That gives me a clear advantage.

Most Christians do not know that the word “witchcraft” in the NT of the bible comes from the Greek word “pharmakeia” from which the English word pharmacy comes from:


Come out from the corrupt health care industry and into the congregation of God:
