In the 1970s the Nixon administration, along with the late Senator Edward Kennedy, championed the cause of health maintenance organizations (HMOs). Congress accepted the faulty premise that HMOs would reduce costs through centralized management of patients, when in fact the opposite was true: more bureaucracy would only lead to higher costs, less accountability, and worse patient care.

RINOs always screw you in the end!

There’s a little gem the Dems always forget:

No matter how much Kennedy railed against the health care system before he died, no matter how much he said he had an answer, he was largely responsible for the system we have now in the first place.

re: “Authoritarianism is Bad for Your Health”

In study after study of rats and other animals in the lab, as well as observation of humans in various context the results are clearly the same.

Lab rat group A is given a diet of a seemingly healthy food with no choice.

Lab rat group B is given a diet of a seemingly unhealthy food with no choice.

Lab rat group C is given a choice of both healthy and unhealthy food. Some of the rats in group C eat more of the unhealthy food than others. There is big variance.

Consistently the rats in group C have better health and live longer than the rats in groups A and B. The same is true with choice of toy and exercise activity. Rats with a choice of exercise activity are healthier than rats with no choice.
