Overdoing Medical Care

In a recent survey of 627 primary care physicians, nearly half of them said that their patients are receiving too much care.

The following items were cited as being the reasons why some patients have too much care.
  • Fear of malpractice lawsuits
  • Performance measures
  • Too little time to just listen to patients
I guess that explains the fact why my insurance premiums are going up.

Herman Cain Making Sense

Although I haven't officially made my choice for the Republican Party Presidential candidate, I like what I hear from Herman Cain. Originally, I dismissed him and was looking at a couple of the other candidates. However, this 9-9-9 plan has struck a chord with me.

I believe that a president must have a sound financial strategy. I haven't heard much from the other candidates and, quite frankly, they leave me cold. If the American people are looking for a true outsider, I believe that Herman Cain may fit the bill perfectly.

When Obama was running for President, he claimed that he would bring hope and change to the people. I haven't seen much hope or change. My healthcare premiums have gone up by 25% over the past 2 years. Unemployment still remains around 9%. Housing prices and new housing are falling to record lows.

When I listen to President Obama, I hear the same things over and over. Instead of having a truly workable plan for unemployment, I hear the same thing again. Nothing has changed for me and I would probably have to say that most of the people I talk with on a daily basis.

I believe that we truly need an outsider and that we need to send people to Washington who care more about the nation than getting re-elected.
