Pelosi’s Disastrous Health Care Plan
November 07, 2009
In this short video, Congressman Mike Rogers of Michigan makes his opening statement to Congress in the heated debate on health care reform legislation.
Rogers makes an impassioned argument against turning the future of our health care system over to the federal government.
The U.S. healthcare system is already filled with obvious inefficiencies, mistakes and fraud, wasting between $505 billion and $850 billion every year, according to a new report.
Unnecessary care, such as the overuse of antibiotics and lab tests to protect against malpractice exposure, makes up 37 percent of healthcare waste, or $200 to $300 billion a year.
Fraud makes up 22 percent of healthcare waste, or up to $200 billion a year -- mostly in the form of fraudulent Medicare claims, kickbacks for referrals for unnecessary services and other scams.
Administrative inefficiency and redundant paperwork account for 18 percent of healthcare waste.
Medical mistakes account for $50 billion to $100 billion in unnecessary spending each year, or 11 percent of the total.
And, of course, preventable conditions such as uncontrolled diabetes cost $30 billion to $50 billion a year.
