The Killing Fields of Socialized Healthcare

A Commentary by Charlie Katebi, Wyoming Liberty Group

The Department of Veterans Affairs is the perfect example of socialized healthcare. The federal government owns all the hospitals, employs all the staff, and leaves patients to languish and sometimes die on waitlists. A year after news broke that VA hospitals kept veterans waiting months to see a doctor, including in Wyoming, the VA still refuses to admit its methods endangered veterans. But new evidence reveals that the agency's practices are disastrous for our wounded warriors. Click here to continue.

Need a GREAT Speaker on Health Care? The Heartland Institute Can Help

Americans are starting to feel the very real damage Obamacare is doing to the nation's health care system. Premiums are skyrocketing. Health care choices are shrinking. Doctors are even retiring early to avoid the government takeover of their profession with myriad rules and restrictions that put bureaucratic hoop-jumping ahead of taking care of patients.

For decades, The Heartland Institute has been fighting to preserve individual freedom, improve the quality of health care, and improve the efficiency of America’s health care system. The best way to do this is to empower individuals by giving them more control over the dollars spent on their behalf. If that is to ever come about, Obamacare – perhaps the worst major piece of legislation ever crammed down America’s throat – must be repealed and replaced.

Heartland’s health care experts can speak to your group about how America can overcome the Obamacare disaster with positive, consumer-based reforms, such as expanding health savings accounts (HSAs); replacing tax deductions for employer-provided health insurance with refundable tax credits; removing regulations that discourage competition and choice in insurance and among health care providers; and reducing litigation costs.

The following Heartland Institute speakers focus on reform ideas that can actually work to make our health care system, and ourselves, healthier. They are just a phone call or mouse click away. Heartland will help with logistics.

Book a member of Heartland’s Speakers Bureau today! Just call 312/377-4000 or email Events Manager Nikki Comerford at to start the process.
