American neurologists were finally able to evaluate baby Charlie Gard in the UK hospital that has been preventing his parents from transferring him to a hospital in the United States for an experimental treatment. The judge who sided with the hospital said he would reverse his decision if the family and Drs could prove the experimental treatment had a chance of helping. After a recent examination by the Dr’s it was determined there is a 10%-56% chance of improving Charlie’s condition. This is more than the 1% chance the UK hospital claimed. Regardless of the hospitals belief and the courts, the parental right to provide life saving treatment should always come first. This week it was announced that Congress has made Charlie Gard a US citizen so that he is free to come to the US for treatment and free of the UK court and socialized medical system. However, the UK courts still have the ultimate decision on whether Charlie can fly to the US with his parents.Read more
Over the last few months, strategy after strategy deployed by the Republican Party to make good on their seven-year promise to do away with President Obama’s signature healthcare legislation has crumbled. Even with full control of Congress and the presidency, the GOP cannot seem to come up with a health care bill that satisfies the needed number of legislators, much less the public. So on Monday night, when the idea was floated that Congress should simply repeal Obamacare and then worry about figuring out a replacement plan at a later date, people understandably went nuts.
While Democrats continue to oppose any plan the Republicans come up with to fix Obamacare or repeal it, the GOP last two attempts at repealing and replacing Obamacare have failed. In addition, any attempt to fully repeal Obamacare like they voted for in 2015 is no longer viable because of moderate senators like Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins, and Senator Capito who refuse to vote for a full repeal bill as promised the past seven years. So as it stands today, the repeal of Obamacare has failed, as has the GOP attempt to replace it. At this point it would be better to let Obamacare fail and the burden be left on the Democrats who voted for it, without any bipartisan support. Eventually, states will have to loosen regulations that don’t allow competition across state lines and tort reforms will need to be made, along with other reforms that help bring premium costs down, along with health care.Read more
