Socialized Medicine is Less Efficient and More Expensive

March 29, 2008

Emailed by GetLiberty.org’s Daily Grind

————

A compelling – and somewhat shocking – new report has revealed that taxpayer-funded universal healthcare could wind up being more costly and less efficient than its private sector alternatives.

What makes the report compelling is that it comes at a time when the leading left-wing politicians are falling all over themselves to promise just the opposite. What makes it shocking is where it comes from: Harvard University.

John Goodman at the National Center of Policy Analysis (NCPA) has summarized the findings of Harvard’s National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER), which note that:

  • Publicly-financed healthcare systems throughout the world have not shown any evidence in the ability to control the healthcare costs;
  • Those systems only seem to be modestly progressive because while the rich may, in fact, end up paying more, the limits of taxpayer funding will limit the options for everyone else;
  • Marginal increases in government spending, if used on specialists and elective procedures, may actually be regressive because it deprives the poor of costlier treatments;
  • Public healthcare has little impact on economic inequalities;
  • And, increased government spending on healthcare tends to reduce financing of other public services.

In other words, the promises Americans have heard that universal healthcare will keep costs down, would bring better healthcare to the poor, will be more efficient, will help bring economic equality to our society, and will be affordable by taxpayers – these are all a sham.

The author of the study notes that publicly-provided healthcare is less efficient at providing and delivering services than private healthcare:

“In general, financing systems are more efficient the less they distort individuals’ choices (around work, consumption, investment, etc.) In this sense, private insurance … and out-of-pocket payments are fully efficient.” (Glied, 6)

It appears that Harvard, for far too long a veritable bastion of socialist balderdash, has dusted off its motto and retrieved its legacy: Veritas – for the health of all involved.

ALG Perspective: Universal healthcare will mean longer waits for treatment, because there will be more use of unnecessary elective procedures. It will mean that costs will go up because it will limit competition. It will mean that overall everyone will receive poorer quality of care. And generally speaking, the larger government bureaucracies become, the less they are able to help those who cannot help themselves. Those who can afford healthcare should be allowed to continue to do so without having to subsidize the weight of a universal system which will undermine everyone’s care including their own.

April 22, 2007

New details emerge on the brutal killing of three Turkish Christians: Slain evangelists were tortured. What we’re facing today is Christianophobia. But you won’t hear this world anywhere, anytime.

Go read my post about whats behind the liberation of Italian reporter Daniele Mastrogiacomo in Afghanistan. Some details are very disturbing (no graphic photos, however).

The genocidal Islamic supremacist group of the Muslim Brotherhood calls for attacks against West.

The cruelty knows no limits, as the Islamists are abusing children to behead people. There is video showing a 12-year-old boy severing a man’s head. If you can’t handle it, don’t click through, because it contains graphic content even though it’s not complete.

Questi sono gli interlocutori del governo italiano, che si vuole portare ad un tavolo di pace..Il video non mostra per intero la decapitazione, però v consiglio di non guardarlo se siete sensibili e pensate di sentirvi male nel vederlo. Chi di voi invece vogliono vederlo, si renderà conto della vera natura del nemico e del perchè lo stiamo combattendo.

Quelli che mi conoscono sanno che sono di destra e che la sinistra non la sopporto proprio. Ma sanno anche che sono liberale convinta e che per questo non mi rispecchio nella destra italiana ed europea, che non considero liberale. Ebbene, in questo paese nel quale vivo (non per moltissimo ancora), il leader della Casa delle Libertà che si auto-proclama ‘anti-comunista’,  che fa? Mi difende un tiranno comunista quale Putin, nonostante mezzo mondo e tutte le destre del mondo libero (in primis quella americana) lo condannino. E nonostante Putin sia amico dei terroristi arabi, del nucleare iraniano e che voglia aggredire l’Estonia solo perchè quest’ultima vuole abbattere una statua sovietica (quindi comunista). E nonostante una parte dell’opposizione russa sia guidata da un liberale di destra. Ma sappiamo che l’Italia è un paese nel quale a destra si sta con i comunisti russi, fingendo di non sapere che al potere in Russia ci sono proprio loro,  e una sinistra al governo che ha come interlocutori privilegiati Hamas, Hezbollah, Talebani e forse fra un pò anche Al Qaeda. Gli italiani sono proprio messi male, ma le cose non cambieranno a breve, come non sono mai cambiate in 60 anni di Repubblica.

La linea dura contro il terrorismo paga. Lo dimostra un rapporto dell’ FBI, che rivela che gli Hezbollah hanno deciso di non colpire gli Usa, perchè sanno che la risposta americana sarebbe decisiva ed infliggerebbe un duro colpo all’organizzazione nazi-islamica. Questo dimostra ancora una volta che il rischio maggiore di attentati lo incorrono tutti quei paesi che pagano riscatti o cedono in qualche modo al terrorismo. Se le nazioni democratiche insieme la smettessero di coccolare i terroristi, forse a quest’ora staremmo vincendo.

I’m rooting for Newt Gingrich, but if take a look at the polls, the only GOP candidate who would beat Dems is – so far – Giuliani. I like him for being tough on crime, open-minded on science and research, but I am unsure of which his foreign policy vision is. I am also a strong free-market and small government advocate. According to this op-ed by Steve Forbes, Giuliani is the most free market-oriented candidate. From what I read on Newt’s site, he seems to have the correct vision on foreign policy. He would be able to win wars, wouldn’t cave in to the diktats of the Euros, Dem and UN bureaucrats, promote democracy as a sine-qua-non condition for peace to be real, wage war (even military) on Al Qaeda’s strongholds, whether in Somalia, Pakistan or Afghanistan, support regime change in Iran, wouldn’t ratify the meaningless Kyoto Treaty, refuse to join the International Criminal Court (a tool in the hands of the anti-Americans), be tough on the UN, wouldn’t call for the establishment of a Palestinian state (at least as long as there are terrorist movements in power) and so on. How likely is his nomination in 2008 if he decided to run right now?

My article at Real Clear Politics: The Human Cost of Iran’s Islamist Rule

For the first time in years, there is a diplomatic crisis between Italy and the United States over five Taliban thugs whose release was demanded by the Italian govt to the Afghan one, in exchange for the release of an Italian leftist reporter. As I wrote previously, the Left caved into the Taliban blackmail (it wants the Dark Ages terrorists to attend the International Conference on Afghanistan!). According to unconfirmed claims by the intelligence service, the Taliban freed might be much more. Also, Foreign Minister D’alema said he had told the US about such a deal, during his meetings in Washington. The State Dept. dismissed those claims as “lies”. Italy is not reliable, his FM even tells lies about his official meetings. Don’t worry, because this gov’t is not going to last long. In the meantime, the US is rightly upset.

A government – and part of the Italian right – of irresponsible people. The Italian government and some parties on the so-called ‘Right’, are calling for the participation of the Taliban assassins and Dark Ages thugs to the international conference on Afghanistan. If you thought the world had already gone enough nuts, you did not yet hear of this latest madness. There must be no compromise nor any sort of dialogue with the enemy, whether the Taliban, Hamas, Fatah, Hizballah, Assad or the Mullahs.

“Libero” is maybe the only Italian daily which is politically-uncorrect and chooses the appropriate headlines. The title on today’s front page comments the absurd decision of the government to release five Taliban mass murderers in exchange for the liberation of an Italian hostage (pictured on the left, with a turban). That was the taliban demand to Italy, which caved in like a good dhimmi, thus inflicting a blow to the war on terror and dark ages.

Castro’s regime sends its death-squad of women – many of which relatives of members of the Cuban ‘parliament’ – to intimidate the Ladies in White who were marching silently and peacefully. A Lady says she could identify some of the worms being members of the State Security. Here is the video of the incident. As you’ll see at the end of the video, people watched with fear and, when asked their opinion, many run away out of fear of reprisals in case they expressed their opinion (if they agreed with the mob, they would have no problem to say it. The fact is that they don’t, that’s why they didn’t speak to the interviewer). Just one guy had the courage to answer, and said : “I agree with everything [with the Ladies’ demands]; you can’t talk here”.  See the photos of ordinary civilians accepting flowers from the peaceful activists.

La dictadura castrista envía a una turba de energúmenos para amedrentar a las Damas de Blanco . este tipo de actos “están preparados por el Gobierno porque el pueblo en ningún momento salió a la calle a repudiarnos. Es una organización del Gobierno”. “Nos estaban esperando. Es un acto brutal y yo identifiqué a personas de la Seguridad del Estado que hicieron actos de repudio frente a mi casa”

The slogans of the mob were the usual: ‘Mercenaries’, ‘Go away’, ‘Long Live communism, down with imperialism’, ‘down with the counterrevolutionaries’ and obscenities. Often, they are drunk. Here is a photo showing who’s the sister of the woman below.

The Ladies tell about the aggression. Laura Pollan says they will not be intimidated, they will go on no matter if they are killed. Gisela Delgado says she could identify members of the state security among the mob and lots of people encouraged the Ladies in White by saying “Go ahead!” and nobody has ever said anything bad. Bertha Soler adds that around 50 workers welcomed them. She also affirms she was insulted for the colour of her skin.

Why the movie “300” should be boycotted by those who love historical truth. There are two petitions protesting the insult to the great Persian civilization by the movie “300”. I recommend you to go read them and, if you agree, sign them. That movie isn’t only an insult to the Persian civilization: it’s an insult to the HISTORICAL TRUTH. It’s  on the line of other insults, such as when the MSM calls the Persian Gulf as “Gulf” or, worse, “Arab Gulf” or when unscrupulous and fame-seeking ‘scholars’ put in doubt and danger the Iranian territorial integrity. A History Channel documentary tells things as they are. Among which: Cyrus the Great freed the Jews from Babylon; the Persians NEVER enslaved the peoples they conquered. Cyrus had issued the first Declaration of Human Rights. Also, remember; the Persian Empire was not Muslim. The Islamic invaders did their best to destroy any track of the Persian civilization. Don’t mix the Great Persian Empire with the Islamic Republic. The first was a Great NON-ISLAMIC civilization and the second is an ARAB IMPORT imposed on Iran by force.  The Islamic Republic and its “revolution” are enemy of the Persian civilization and what it has meant. It’s not suprising that, on the footsteps of the Taliban, the Mullahs are planning the flooding of the Sivand Dam, which would automatically destroy the site near the tomb of Cyrus the Great. A mankind’s heritage. Aryamehr wrote a post related to this movie. Again: the Islamic Republic is the enemy of the Iranian nation. It’s an invading force that will be defeated soone or later.

The picture just below shows a Cuban girl with her parents. The young girl suffers from brain cancer but cannot be treated in Cuba thanks to the apartheid established by the Castros’ revolution. Indeed, foreigners can enjoy the best treatment in luxurious hospital. All that is denied to the ordinary Cubans, and this girl risks to die because of this. You would say: “Her parents could bring her to America to receive treatment”. But, you know, Cubans have to ask the state for permission to leave their country even temporarily. There is no freedom of movement for ordinary Cubans. The photo was sent in by Dr. Darsi Ferrer in Havana.

Thinking again, I’ve to say I’m quite undecided whether to endorse Giuliani or Newt Gingrich. I admit I know more about Newt’s foreign policy line than I do about Giuliani’s and as far as I know, I am sympathetic to the first’s positions. At first, I gave up endorsing him because of his being still undecided whether to run and because of the not-so-favorable polls. But, from now to one month before the elections, much can still happen. Would he beat Mrs. Clinton or Obama? Maybe or maybe not. We’ll see. He is still on the list of my picks.

Report: Syrian Group Claims It Has Missing Israeli Soldier.Israel has never had the guts to enter Syria and rescue the soldier even by force. I doubt Mr. Olmert will have them now.

If you still have any doubt, these two polls might help convince you to choose Rudy Giuliani as GOP nomination. Or you may face 5 years of Clinton White House.

Avrete sicuramente sentito i telegiornali italiani parlare solo di Hillary Clinton. E’ stranoto che i media nostrani facciano il tifo per la cornuta moglie di Bill, con la scusa che sarebbe la prima donna presidente. Visto che di primati si tratta, perchè ad esempio i tg non dicono che anche Giuliani batterebbe un record storico? Infatti, sarebbe il prima italo-americano presidente Usa. E, stando a quasi tutti i recenti sondaggi, lui batterebbe di gran lunga sia la Clinton che gli altri candidati democratici. Per chi non lo sapesse, Giuliani è sì un uomo con le palle in politica estera (e non si farebbe influenzare dagli isterismo europei ed onusiani, come sta facendo Bush); egli è anche favorevole al diritto all’aborto, all’eutanasia,alle unioni civili ed alla ricerca sulle cellule staminali embrionali. Ecco perchè è molto amato anche dai non repubblicani. Ovviamente, ci saranno le nomination sia democratiche che repubblicane. E stando ai sondaggi tra i repubblicani, lui non avrebbe difficoltà a vincere la nomination per la corsa alla Casa Bianca. Se di record si deve parlare, i media italiani comincino a parlare anche di Giuliani. A meno che non vogliano nascondere agli italiani il fatto che ad ancora un’ anno e mezzo dal voto, Giuliani è gia in testa a quasi tutti.

Magdi Allam: La lezione del tunisino che vuole eliminare i governanti. In un saggio ha scritto: «Oggi ci sono governanti lacchè dell’imperialismo e per questo bisogna ucciderli». Rached Ghannouchi, già espulso, al convegno di Napoli sui «musulmani democratici». Per chi non lo sapesse, costui è un’imam fondamentalista di Londra, che ha emesso una fatwa che invita i suoi sostenitori a cercare ed uccidere i mussulmani laici e riformisti che invocano la riforma dell’Islam e la democratizzazione delle loro società. Va detto che tra questi riformisti ci sono sia intellettuali di sinistra (come Lafif) che di destra. Non importa il colore politico. Si tratta di aiutare questi illuministi a vincere la battaglia per la laicizzazione del mondo islamico. Ringrazio Magdi per aver portato all’attenzione dei lettori italiani circa la presenza di tale personaggio quale Rachid Ghannouchi.Ho appena contattato Abu Khawla,ccordinatore della Campagna Internazionale per salvare Lafif Lakhdar dalla condanna a morte emessa proprio da tale Ghannouchi. Ho chiesto ad Abu se è possibile tradurre in inglese l’editoriale in questione e pubblicarlo su Middle East Trasparent. In seguito, verrà pubblicato sul blog dedicato a Lafif Lakhdar, dove ci si potrà rendere conto di chi è l’inquisitore islamico invitato al convegno di Napoli.

While the world focuses on the nuclear issue, the Islamic Republic’s Taliban prepares to flood the Sivand Dam, part of Iran’s and Mankind’s Cultural Heritage dating back to the pre-Islamic era. The world stood idle by while Afghanistan’s Taliban destroyed the Bamyaan Buddha statues. It is standing idle by while the Islamic regime prepares to commit what it is for sure a crime against humanity. The Islamic regime is taking a major step to destroy Iran and its rich cultural heritage, while the world even allows unscrupulous people to sell and buy pieces of Iranian monuments. What is next? Will the civilized people allow the destruction of part of the mankind’s treasure? Where is the UNESCO? Below are images from a peaceful demonstrations of Iranians in Iran, protesting against the announced flooding of part of their cultural heritage.

Red Brigades terrorists arrested in Italy over planned kidnapping and murders of politicians, journalists and economists.

Arrestati 15 terroristi rossi. In Italia spesso non si ha il coraggio di dire le cose come stanno. Dire, cioè, che l’ideologia e l’operato delle Br sono condivisi dalla maggioranza dei militanti dei due partiti comunisti ancora legali (e persino al governo), dai teppisti dei centri sociali e dalla CGIL, la quale non è la prima volta che sforna terroristi brigatisti. Solo che, per salvarsi la faccia, finge di prenderne le distanze. Sciocchi sono i nostri politicanti tutti, a non capire che la CGIL è un covo di brigatisti o di loro simpatizzanti, e che perciò è un’organizzazione eversiva.

Washington Times // // : Kyoto hypocrisies . According to a report published on the Italian scientific review ‘Newton’, the most known planets of the Solar System, Yupiter, Mars, and Saturn, are suffering from the very same ills as the Earth. Temperatures are rising, hurricans are increasing in number. According to the report, these problems are due to the increase in the Sun’s energy on the mentioned planets (including the Earth). Thus, the man is not guilty. The Kyoto Protocol is meaningless.Read the report here (It’s in Italian, but you may try to translate it by using that nonsense named ‘Babelfish’ to get an idea of what the article writes about).

Istituto Bruno Leoni: Clima, scandalosa la propaganda sui mutamenti climatici . Capita che sul Corriere della Sera online trovo un articolo che mi sorprende l’abbiano pubblicato, e che vorrei fosse letto da chi conta, ossia da tutti quelli che invocano il protocollo di Kyoto e che annunciano apocalissi prossime il cui colpevole è l’essere umano.

La guerra degli Ultrà al calcio italiano. Doveroso fermare i campionati. Ma finchè la nostra classe politica non si deciderà a lasciare da parte il buonismo ed usare la forza contro i terroristi del calcio, adottando il modello inglese, le cose non cambieranno e queste cose si ripeteranno quando si deciderà di riprendere il campionato.

SMCCDI: Workers in Iran protest against murder of colleague

Italian Foreign Minister Massimo D’Alema (whose gov’t is supported just by a mere 25% according to all the recent polls) puts more shame on Italy by showing to know almost nothing of Middle Eastern issues“We hope that Iran will be determined to solve regional problems since it is a large country with a significant influence” (they have already much influence in the region.. that is why there are daily suicide bombings in Iraq, chaos in the palestinian-controlled territories and in Lebanon, Mr. D’Alema. The world should work to prevent the Mullahs from having further influence). solve the Iranian nuclear crisis through “diplomatic efforts.” ( Indeed, as we all have seen, “diplomacy” resolved much..It’s diplomacy that has brought to the current situation. It’s diplomacy the thing the West should abandon, opting not for a military strike, but for engaging the Iranian people to help them overthrow the regime in its entirety.) D’Alema described resolving the Palestinian-Israeli conflict as a “key to solving problems in the Middle East.” (This thought is the key to failure in solving the Middle Eastern issues. This thought shows how European politicians still did not understand anything of how things work in the real world). “This Palestinian government (Hamas) should be ready to denounce violence and recognize Israel,” he said. “It should be ready to negotiate peace with Israel” (Good luck with that, Mr. D’Alema). Prince Saud lauded Italy’s role last year in hosting a conference in Rome aimed at stopping the Israeli bombardment of Lebanon. (This is evidence of the fact that Italy has not hosted that conference to stop Hizballah firing rockets into Israel. It did so in order to stop Israel from defending itself).Mr. D’Alema also says: “Don’t isolate Iran”. That is the main reason for which violence it the ME is on rise and the Iranian people are not taking to the streets anymore. Because Mr. D’Alema’s West simply does not give a d…n about the plight of Iranian people and his gov’t – as well as many gov’t in the EU and the US as well, did yet realize that helping ousting the Mullahs regime would automatically prevent a nuclear nightmare. The sad fact is that the Iranian people have been totally forgotten.
