Milton Wolf on Health Care
Wolf: Strongly Disagree
Question topic: The Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) should be repealed by Congress.
Wolf: Strongly Agree. As a medical doctor, I am well aware of the many reasons why we must fully repeal ObamaCare. I have authored a free-market alternative to ObamaCare, called PatientCare. I believe we must fully repeal ObamaCare and replace it with a free-market alternative.
Wolf responded to a story published by The Topeka Capital-Journal and a tidal wave of condemnation about X-ray imager he uploaded to the social media site and sadistic jokes he made online about individuals killed by gunfire or harmed in other ways. "Several years ago, I made some comments about these images that were insensitive to the seriousness of what the images revealed," Wolf, a radiologist, said. "I soon removed those images. However, my mistakes are my own & I take full responsibility for them."
He said the cumulative effect of witnessing human suffering & tragedy took a toll on those practicing medicine, but "I am truly sorry and ask for your forgiveness."
Wolf also held his "political adversary" responsible for igniting controversy about the images. He said Roberts "wants to attack me as a doctor rather than giving Kansans a reason to vote for him."
"There's just no way around this: President Obama looked America in the eye and lied. The president was so hellbent on 'fundamentally transforming' the country with his health care takeover that he intentionally deceived you--he lied--not once or twice, but over and over again."
"ObamaCare is the most disastrous law of our lifetimes, one that was forced upon us in the most dishonest of ways in order to fundamentally transform America from the Land of the Free into a nation of dependents. The ObamaCare days of reckoning have barely begun, and our only salvation now is to repeal this train wreck in its entirety and to be honest with Americans about what measures actually work: patient-centered, market-driven reforms."
"America's health care system should not be centered around the government and it should not be centered around doctors. America's health care system should be centered around patients. I call my plan simply: PatientCare." said Wolf.
While the Constitution does not give the federal government the authority to interfere with our health care, the big-government types have been at work for decades and have, by any fair assessment, wreaked havoc. The first health care waiver was granted in 1929 when the American Medical Association successfully lobbied that Blue Cross be exempt from certain regulations and taxes. Thus began the era of crony health care where Big Government's friends were more equal than the rest of us.
The unkeepable promises of ObamaCare are, as we say in medicine, too numerous to count, and are already collapsing. You can keep your current doctor and your current insurance. No tax increases. No rationing. Reduce the deficit. Four million new jobs created--"400,000 almost immediately." Public hearings. These are the pathetic peddlings of false hope.
The President made yet another empty promise: if there was a way to solve our health care problems with the free market, he said, he'd be happy to do so. I'm calling his obvious bluff.
