These days facts about medical care and insurance are hard to come by. What we don’t know about our privacy and the real costs of ‘national’ health care plans is scary. Twila Braise joins us in Health Freedom-Health Privacy-Twila Brase-Bob Davis Podcast 777.
Big Brother In The Exam Room
Twila Brase is the president of the Citizens Council On Health Freedom. Moreover she is the author of a great resource I have been advertising on the podcasts. And, we have done quite a few interviews over the years. Her new book, Big Brother in The Exam Room details the truth about our privacy in the doctor’s office.
Are Republicans or Democrats Better For Your Heath Privacy?
Just a week after the midterms is a great time to talk to Twila about the legislative agenda ahead for health issues. Especially relevant is whether a democrat controlled congress might be a better friend to privacy advocates than a republican controlled congress.
Letter To Trump On Medicare
In addition, Brase just wrote a letter to President Trump suggesting that he take action on the issue of medicare. Did you know that when they reach 65 senior citizens have to sign up for Medicare, paid for with part of their social security benefit? This is a rule put in place by the Clinton administration that can be rescinded by executive order.
Health Insurance Lobby Controls Politicians
Finally in my view, it is significant that health insurance lobbyists often control republican politicians. It is republicans who often vote against free market initiatives in health insurance. Twila explains in this podcast.
Feasting On Taxpayer Dollars
Divided Government Means You Are Safe. For Now.
In conclusion Twila suggests the good news is a divided government probably won’t do anymore damage in the short term. However Brase is always a great source for information about what she calls Medical Insurance and Medical Care.
