Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2014-8: A Silver Lining for Obamacare?

One of the blogs I check occasionally is called Big Lizard.  I check occasionally because he can go weeks without posting.  He tends to be a libertarian which means he could be a part of the Tea Party but is a Rhino on the moral issues.  Recently on his January 5 post called “Broken Clock”  he posted some ideas on health care.  I had heard them before but he presented them effectively.  If my interpretation is new to you, read the whole post.

In a nutshell, he says that the debacle of Obamacare could save health care in this country.  The act itself and recent actions by congress, are going to destroy the old system and push us toward socialized medicine.  That is the bad news.  The silver lining is that this may allow an entire new system of personal responsibility to emerge.  He sees a system of subscription developing where groups of doctors will open a member’s only service.  They would set a fee and establish what would be covered to be treated at no extra charge.  Members would then also buy a catastrophic coverage plan at low cost for major issues. 

A point he makes is that only in health care is daily maintenance considered a part of the insurance.  This does not happen in any other type of insurance.  Under this plan daily needs such as physicals and flu would be paid by the patient as you would pay for new tires and oil changes on your car.  Major issues would be covered by insurance.

See what he has to say if that sounds interesting.  The only addition I would make is that the Progressive elite would try to pass a law making it impossible to pay your own way outside the government system.  They did that in Canada and it led to open rebellion.

There are answers to the phoney health care crisis.  This is one good contribution.
