Healthcare in Hawaii Post Tax Scam
Hawaii Bernie Supporters Running for Office – Meet in Conference Room 224 from 10:00 am to 11:30 am. We are facing, as a nation, the biggest debacle in public policy and economic “reform" ever foisted on the middle class and struggling wage-earners, thanks to the newly approved Tax Reform bill signed by President Trump. This Republican-conceived legislation, designed to reward the most wealthy on the backs of average Americans, will deliver crippling blows to vital healthcare programs like Medicare and Medicaid, as well as catastrophically diminish the quality, accessibility, and affordability of healthcare for all consumers. We in Hawaii have a unique opportunity to consider progressive measures this session that would stem the tide of this disastrous forecast for patients and doctors. In this presentation, a model of massive cost-savings through streamlined and effective use of State and Federal funds, as well as a statewide system that would reverse existing toxic trends in healthcare delivery that have spun out of control, will be proposed. Please come to see this power-point presentation by Dr. Stephen Kemble, past President of the Hawaii Psychiatric Medical Association and the Hawaii Medical Association, and a national board adviser to the Physicians for a National Health Program, as he explains the broken aspects of the current healthcare system, and the brass tacks of Hawaii’s promising legislative answer to the Trump agenda. There will be a Q and A session following the presentation, so prepare your questions about 'single payer' 'universal' 'medicare for all,' 'Hawaii Health Authority,' or, my favorite, why does healthcare in the USA cost 2x per capita what most other nations pay? About 15 nations pay half per capita what we pay, and yet the USA ranks 30th internationally for health care outcomes. Why? It is true that Hawaii ranks third in the USA for healthcare, but that does not mean we should feel happy about it. Best state in the worst nation is not a point meriting pride. People in Hawaii still go medically bankrupt. Businesses still struggle to pay the high cost of insurance premiums. Many people with coverage are under covered, or can't afford the out of pocket expenses. Since we must deal with the republican tax bill, lets start by improving our own healthcare bureaucracy.
