I pondered why the United States was uniquely dependent on employer health care.

I pondered why the United States spends $2.1 Trillion in health care each year.

My research delineates that 34% of health care is paid by private insurance, 47% by Public insurance, and 19% by consumers.

In 2006, healthcare as a percent of GDP was 16% .

These numbers just don’t seem economically correct, but reading through causes, cures, and solutions seems to be like traveling through a maze.

As a patient, if I don’t have a health care plan, providers sometimes double or triple the rate over that of the rate under and insurance plan, so I need to plan to contain the costs, but the costs of the plans are not contained either.  It does not seem like the sensible economic system where costs are shown and consumers choose purchases based on utility.

A look back in history reveals the following:

“In describing how the United States arrived in the predicament it currently finds itself, the author accurately lays the blame on decisions made 60 years ago. Wage and price controls in effect during World War II meant employers had to turn to forms of non-cash compensation to recruit or retain workers. Workers pay taxes on cash wages but not on fringe benefits like health insurance. Over time, it became common for workers to fund their family’s health care by using tax-free insurance policies obtained through employment.” Herrick, D. (2005)

I liken the whole situation to the well known nursery rhyme!
I just hope we restore some sensibility and self responsibility before we get to the “horse”!

If you don’t address the problem directly with wise open direct economic decisions, this is what happens:

There Was An Old Woman

There was an old woman who swallowed a fly,
I don’t know why she swallowed a fly,
Perhaps she’ll die.

There was an old woman who swallowed a spider,
That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her,
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly,
I don’t know why she swallowed the fly,
Perhaps she’ll die.

There was an old woman who swallowed a bird,
How absurd! to swallow a bird,
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider,
That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her,
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly,
I don’t know why she swallowed the fly,
Perhaps she’ll die.

There was an old woman who swallowed a cat,
Imagine that! to swallow a cat,
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird,
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider,
That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her,
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly,
I don’t know why she swallowed the fly,
Perhaps she’ll die.

There was an old woman who swallowed a dog,
What a hog! to swallow a dog,
She swallowed the dog to catch the cat,
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird,
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider,
That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her,
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly,
I don’t know why she swallowed the fly,
Perhaps she’ll die.

There was an old woman who swallowed a goat,
Just opened her throat! to swallow a goat,
She swallowed the goat to catch the dog,
She swallowed the dog to catch the cat,
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird,
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider,
That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her,
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly,
I don’t know why she swallowed the fly,
Perhaps she’ll die.

There was an old woman who swallowed a cow,
I don’t know how she swallowed a cow!
She swallowed the cow to catch the goat,
She swallowed the goat to catch the dog,
She swallowed the dog to catch the cat,
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird,
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider,
That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her,
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly,
I don’t know why she swallowed the fly,
Perhaps she’ll die.

There was an old woman who swallowed a horse,
She’s dead—of course!
