One of the topics that is of most importance to me is medical freedom. By this I mean the freedom to determine the type of medical care you want and to see the medical provider you want to see. The medical industry is one of the most regulated and least free industries there is. There are so many regulations that deal with the practice of medicine that it boggles the mind and it is hard to keep track of it all.
As physicians, a significant portion of our day is already spent documenting to meet certain government or insurance check boxes. And it is only getting worse as under Obamacare these requirements will only get more cumbersome, complicated, and time consuming. This is time that doctors could be spending with patients.
As I highlighted in a previous post, under Obamacare Medicare will be penalizing physicians that don't report certain quality measures about their patients to the federal government. With these measures the government is moving to "incentivize" certain ways of practicing medicine while at the same time increasing their control over the industry. This will limit access to treatments that fall outside the accepted government paradigm.
This all adds up to a future where you will have less and less control over your medical choices and hence your medical freedom.
While I will not tell you who to vote for I want to alert you to consequences of your choice. For me, the ability to freely choose is fundamental to the American way of life. Nothing is scarier to me than having government bureaucrats determine what medical options are available for you and me.
When you go to make a decision about where to cast your vote think about the future of your health and how it will be impacted by that vote. If you value your medical freedom it will be important to look at the candidates and examine their positions. In particular, it will be important to review what each candidate feels about Obamacare. Are they for more government control or they in favor of more freedom?
Nothing will be more important to you and your family than medical freedom. Once it is taken away it will likely never be given back.
In the end we all want to be free to choose. So choose wisely.
