Briefly ...

I didn't watch the Health Care Summit today.

I was too busy taking care of sick people.

What I did watch today, however, was highly illuminating.

I watched our Infectious Disease Specialist spinning her wheels, forced to justify her prescription for a particular antibiotic, to a beancounter/pencil pusher who didn't even know what MRSA was. Like the good Doctor doesn't have anything better to do with her time. Like taking care of sick people, or something like that.

I've watched the same scene, or a variant thereof, played out time and time again. Bureaucrats who know nothing about medicine are bullying doctors and hurting patients for the sake of their bottom line.

Here's what I do know:

Americans deserve better.

All Americans deserve better.

And, simply put, Americans need to have a little more faith in themselves. They elected the smartest guy in the room to lead this great nation, and now they need to let him do his job.
