  • Death With Dignity
    Our health care system is failing the elderly and those with severe chronic illness. Way too often, human beings in a vegetative state without any hope of recovery are kept alive and repeatedly tortured with multiple unnecessary hospital visits, feeding tubes, rectal tubes, bladder catheters, tracheostomy and chronic ventilator dependency. As an emergency physician for the past 15 years, I observe this immoral treatment of the elderly and disabled every day. And the financial burden to our health care system is staggering. We need a better way to honor our elderly and allow them to die with dignity.

  • Tell Obama to Cease FDA Ties to Monsanto
    President Obama has appointed former Monsanto VP and lobbyist Michael Taylor to become senior advisor to the FDA's commissioner. This unthinkable linkage between food safety and corporate interests that have little regard for the public health must be stopped. This example of a "fox watching the henhouse" is inexcusable. President Obama must reverse this unimaginably dangerous policy and isolate the FDA from corporate influence.

  • Affordable Health Care for Everyone
    We could have single payer health care in our country. Every person with a social security number could be billed one dollar for each year of your age, me I'm 59 so I would pay that every month instead of the $127 that I pay plus the five thousand or so that my employer pays each year. It would be less expensive for medicare people as they pay right around a $100 a month.

  • Drop the Medicare In Home Rule Now
    The Medicare In Home Rule refuses wheelchairs or home chore assistance for people with degenerative neuromuscular disabilities until they have become completely paralyzed. It also refuses to provide wheelchairs if people leave their homes, except for doctor visits. This not only creates painful isolation, it costs taxpayers more because without household help and access to exercise and and social opportunities - both of which help alleviate pain - medical conditions worsen and nursing homes may become the only option. Many negative things result at that point, but included among them are: 1. More money spent by Medicare for conditions that could be avoided; 2. More taxes paid at the state level, because when people run out of money Medicaid becomes the primary payor.

  • We're for a single-payer health plan
    Improved Medicare-for-All as a single-payer health plan is sometimes called could coverage everyone at a lower total cost with better health results as is done in all other wealthy countries. By drastically reducing administrative costs as Medicare already does and jettisoning expensive and reprehensible incentives based on profit-maximization rather than health maximization, single-payer is both logical and moral.
