Publisher Comments:

America spends more than any other developed nation on healthcare—$2.1 trillion in 2007 alone. But 47 million Americans remain uninsured, and of those Americans who are insured, many suffer from poor health. In his ground-breaking proposal, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel offers up a plan to comprehensively restructure the delivery and quality of our healthcare. By eliminating employer-healthcare and establishing an independent program to evaluate healthcare plans and insurance companies, he offers a no-nonsense guide to how government can institute private insurance options that will allow each of us a choice of doctor and plan.

With the rate of healthcare costs rapidly outpacing our gross domestic product, we can no longer afford to maintain our fragmented delivery of care, or entertain reforms that seek to patch, rather than cure, a fractured system. Accessible, straightforward, and revolutionary in its approach, Healthcare, Guaranteed is an inarguable guide to lasting healthcare reform.

Synopsis:

A leading physician and a renowned economist propose a plan to comprehensively restructure the delivery and quality of healthcare in the U.S., thereby guaranteeing universal health coverage for all citizens.

Synopsis:

A bold new plan featuring universal coverage, a choice of healthcare providers, and an end to employer-based healthcare.

Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel is the Chair of the Department of Bioethics at the Clinical Center of the National Institutes of Health and a breast oncologist.

It is well known that Emanuel's idea for containing costs and for shaping a perfect society is to let the elderly languish or even help them along and to not treat the infants and the children with disease, since we haven't "invested" enough in them yet to realize a loss. The elderly and the very young will be expected to hasten along out of the way so the adolescent (?) and youth and middle age can take their rightful place in the world. They alone will receive medical care. I am old enough to have seen this "plan" before. It was called the final solution.

Why is it so difficult for even an intelligent doctor to see that ELIMINATING the insurance companies (third party payers)is the only way to get good health care AND save money too. Insurance companies ADD 11%-17% (depending on the study you use) to the COSTS of health care? Why add taxes of any kind when we don't need to?

With a title like this from a Physician, Educator, Researcher, and wholely successful business man from a family of greatly successful immigrants from Isreal, how can the content be anything less than a brilliently conceived completly executable plan to have every American covered by a workable universal healthcare plan!
