How Big Health Insurance Saved Obamacare, and What That Means To Us Regular Folks

DrRich | August 11th, 2010 - 8:30 am

Contrary to common wisdom, the American health insurance industry did not oppose President Obama’s healthcare reforms. Far from it. Big health insurance was actually quite desperate for Obamacare to pass, and indeed took extraordinary steps, at critical times, to make sure that it did.

In this series of articles, DrRich reveals why the insurance industry supported Obamacare, how the industry supported Obamacare, and (most importantly) what that support means to Progressives who pine for a single-payer healthcare system, and to Conservatives who pine for the repeal of Obamacare.

Fixing American HealthcareWhy should you still read DrRich’s book, Fixing American Healthcare, even though our leaders have just fixed American healthcare for us?

Four reasons.

First, DrRich humbly suggests, you may be insufficiently paranoid about American healthcare, whether it’s the style of healthcare we have now, or the New Style Healthcare that is rapidly coming our way thanks to healthcare reform. DrRich’s book will quickly remedy this deficiency.

DrRich, of course (wise beyond even his not-inconsiderable-years), understands that in certain cases, free-ranging paranoia may not be the healthiest of conditions. So, Fixing American Healthcare not only shows you who’s out to get you, and why, and how they propose to do it, but also shows you what you can do to protect yourself and your loved ones. For paranoia is not always so bad, so long as it’s constructively actionable.

Second, Fixing American Healthcare introduces you to the Grand Unification Theory of Healthcare (GUTH), a simple and elegant model that permits even the novice to understand the essence of any healthcare system you can imagine. The GUTH will come in very handy as our new healthcare system unfolds, rooted as it is in layer upon layer of bureaucratic obfuscation, specifically designed to keep us (the unwashed masses) from understanding what’s really going on. With the GUTH, you will understand our healthcare system even better than the ones who are supposed to be running it.

Third, when is the last time you read a book on healthcare policy that’s actually entertaining?

And fourth, Fixing American Healthcare is now available in Kindle format, and for the low price of only $4.99. So, whether you prefer receiving electronic enlightenment on your Kindle, PC, iPhone, Blackberry, Android, or iPAD, now you can read DrRich’s book in its new, pixellated format.

Save a life or two. Read Fixing American Healthcare.

Get it here.

Healthcare Reform For The Unwashed Masses

Sure, nobody’s read the bill, and even if they had, what Nancy said is true: To find out what’s in the bill, they first had to pass it (so the bureaucrats could translate it into the hundreds of thousands of regulations that would finally determine its meaning). But there’s no need to wait for the regulators to sort it all out. DrRich can tell you what you need to know about our new healthcare system right now!
