Chuck Baldwin on Health Care

Constitution Party nominee for President; Reform Party nominee in several states

 


Freedom of choice for all healthcare decisions

I strongly support the freedom of choice for all citizens in their health care decisions and management! I strongly support the freedom of choice of practitioner and treatment!

Government regulation and subsidy constitutes a threat to both the quality and availability of patient-oriented health care and treatment. Hospitals, doctors, and other health care providers should be accountable to patients--not to politicians, insurance bureaucrats, or HMO Administrators.

If the supply of medical care is controlled by the federal government, then officers of that government will determine which demand is satisfied. The result will be the rationing of services, higher costs, poorer results--and the power of life and death transferred from caring physicians to unaccountable political overseers.

I support proposals for employee-controlled “family coverage” health insurance plans based on cash value life insurance principles.

No subsidies for HMOs; no forced vaccinations

I condemn and will oppose any legislation designed to secure government subsidies for special interests, such as the HMOs, and/or to protect the artificially high cost to consumers of prescription drugs. A Baldwin Administration will work to put an end to corporate welfare in all areas, including the health care industry. I further support the right of patients to seek redress of their grievances through the courts against insurers and/or HMO’s.

I also oppose any legislation, such as Homeland Security Bill, H.R. 5005, which seeks to authorize the forced vaccination of American citizens against small pox. The government should not have the power to force people to receive immunizations or vaccinations.
