Newt Gingrich is, like Mitt Rom-ney, not satisfied with Obamac-are. “We must repeal and replace the left’s big government health bill with real solutions that will lower costs and improve health outcomes.” He believes that Obamacare instead created layers of new taxes, regulations, and bureau-cracies that in the end will make the problems worse. Newt proposes a “Patient Power” plan
As a U.S citizen and tax payer, I believe the government should worry more about the welfare of our people and the way they live. Instead, it seems the only thing they are concerned about is, health care is costing them too much money, taxes need to be higher, and they want to dump more money into the war on terrorism, yet they still think they deserve a pay raise. The United States Military is a very respectable and honorable organization, that puts their lives on the line every day, and sacrifices the most beloved things in their life. Congress needs to save a little money, so why not stop paying our soldiers while they are fighting a war? Two weeks later, congress gets a raise, because they feel their jobs are more important than anyone else in this country.
Health care providers should provide care that meets the needs of each individual patient, including the use of appropriate advances in medical technology. Health care should also be non-discriminatory, providing the same quality of service regardless of race, ethnicity, age, sex or health status” (Quality of Care, n.d.). The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) named a program ‘the Physician Quality Reporting Initiative’ (PQRI), based on the 2006 Tax Relief and Health Care Act (TRHCA). The Act necessitated the creation and implementation of a physician quality reporting system which includes incentive payments for those eligible professionals who disclose measures of quality taken for covered Medicare beneficiaries. The quality reporting is done on a voluntary basis offering contributing physicians bonus payments based on Medicare claims for services.
Health promotion enables people to increase control over their health and to improve their health, which does not rely solely on one discipline of health but is rather a multidisciplinary scope that intertwines health education and health interventions and involves individuals, family, communities, state and federal government. The goal of health promotion is to enhance value in health, lessen the health risks, advocate for healthy lifestyles and settings, and respond to the underlying determinants of health. Implementation of Health Promotion Implementing health promotion is a key factor in promoting wellness and preventing illness. Chronic diseases in the United States have a major impact and
With this power in our political system nothing new ever gets a chance to be implemented into our lives. I mean I agree with Congress that such a big project would certainly be beneficial to the economy and open up a huge amount of job opportunities. The opposers believe that the issue will hurt the environment and this to them is too big of a risk to take. Well I’ve heard Obama state before we need to bring more jobs to our country at home, well wouldn’t this be a perfect chance at doing that? There are two branches of government here battling back and forth between the pros and cons of the proposed new project, but in my opinion the President is wrong and the pro’s certainly outweigh the
Paul Krugman’s Conscience of a Liberal “On Friday, House Republicans unveiled their proposal for immediate cuts in federal spending. Uncharacteristically, they failed to accompany the release with a catchy slogan. So I’d like to propose one: Eat the Future.” (Krugman “Future”) Paul Krugman uses humor, sarcasm, and criticism as he discusses the government’s choices to save our economy from turmoil. He completely disagrees with Republicans’ proposals and prefers higher taxes as opposed to more spending cuts. Krugman considers himself to be a liberal therefore he is more on the progressive end of the political spectrum.
This will also improve patient outcome drastically. The healthcare is a holistic entity which involves both the treatment of acute consequences of poor health the prevention of poor health from occurring (Martone 1992). The more successful the HCO is in preventing disease, the more successful they will be in improving patient health (Carlyon 1984). This goes a long way to prove that disease prevention fits nicely into the mission statement of the HCO which says that healthcare organizations do their best to promote healthy living. Ethically, it is the duty of the HCO’s under the umbrella of the CDC, to design/develop strategies to prevent diseases.
This can allow providers to avoid re-admission, avoiding medication errors, lower duplication testing and improve diagnosis. If a practice successfully integrated faxing medical records, they may inquire, why they should switch over to the electronic health information exchange, but the betterment exist with information exchange regardless of the means which it’s transferred. The importance of electronic exchange is to standardization of data. This means, once the data is standardized, the data that’s transferred will simply be incorporated into the receiver’s Electronic health record also known as EHR in which this can better patient care. For instance, if a lab results for diabetes are received through the HIE system it can be fused into the providers EHR and a list of patients with diabetes can be created and the physician can conclude which patient have uncontrollably blood sugar and need schedule a follow up if needed.
Advantages & Disadvantages of the Balanced Budget Amendment Original post by Tom Gresham of Demand Media A federal balanced budget amendment occasionally emerges as a political hot-button issue. The amendment would require that the U.S. government not run a budget deficit, limiting expenses to the amount of revenue the government brings in. Passage of a balanced budget amendment requires overwhelming congressional and state support, needing the approval of three-fourths of the states and two-thirds majorities in both houses of Congress. Debt Load The chief advantage of a federal balanced budget amendment is that it reduces federal debt because it requires the government to operate without a deficit. Advocates argue that a balanced budget amendment would lead to a smaller federal government and less government waste, including a major reduction in pork-barrel spending -- the practice of legislators pushing pet projects for their constituencies.
It is also necessary to allow foreign products to come in so competition will increase. Basic ally, the underlying flaw under foreign product taxes is that it cuts off greater innovations and negatively affects our economy. -Even if we wanted to improve, remove taxes b/c by imposing taxes we don’t accept new ideas into our companies and nothing is innovative anymore. We are promoting isolationism -By allowing foreign products to come in, competition is brought about and we work to improve upon it. Each side improves the product and it continues in a circle.
