The Business and Government Leadership Rift – Jobs and Political Rhetoric Discussed

We keep hearing how the President Obama and the Democrats in Congress are going to provide jobs for Americans. They tell us that as we switch to alternative energy they will provide millions of jobs, but that is simply poppycock and nonsense. The reality is that wind power and solar combined is only 1% of our total usage, and they haven’t told you that it took 3-decades to get to that point. The leadership tells us how their stimulus and bailouts will help revive employment, that’s utter nonsense, and let me explain.If you will recall the US Government had bailed out Wall Street to re-capitalize the banks and to unfreeze credit markets, but very few banks are lending to small businesses, the real job creators. You see, 80% of Americans are employed by small business not large US corporation. Still, the President continually has business round tables with big business not little ones. Worse, in one recent business and jobs meeting there were no CEOs there at all, actually no small business owners either. In fact, no one who’d ever had to make a payroll was there in the room at all.Recall that the Obama Administration promised Americans healthcare, an entitlement and still claimed that we’d lower medical costs, insurance, and save Medicare. In my opinion that’s nuts, and I say; “what a bunch of malarkey indeed.” Health care costs continue to sky rocket, an emergency room visit with NO operation is $7500 for only 3-4 hours, most of that is usually spent waiting in line. Sure health care insurance can pick up the tab, but that means higher insurance for everyone.President Obama’s solution; simple theaten Health Care Insurance companies that he’ll increase regulations and audits if they raise premiums? Catch-22 for them, but that can only work so long. A business that cannot raise prises as costs skyrocket cannot stay in business. Are we going to bail them out too? And with whose money may I ask? And if we go to a completely government run health care insurance plan, we already know what will happen; they will spend 45% in the administration of the bureaucracy before one dollar is spent on actual health care costs. That 45% is pretty much straight across the board in all government agencies, I am not making this up or throwing out numbers from my underpants here.And when it comes to trade President Obama claims he is on top of things? “Oh really,” I ask? He claims he will increase our exports three-fold? Sure, our exports will increase three-fold as the global economy returns but our inflows of products will also increase, by more than increase 5-fold. That’s just slightly higher than they were prior to the Global economic meltdown. Thus, the trade deficits will be a nightmare, and job recovery is wishful thinking. The reality is that the Obama Administration [in my observation, opinion, and from my point-of-view] is a complete nightmare to free-enterprise and industry, and utter failure in creating jobs in my opinion [just look at all the charts]. Many who were unemployed and whose unemployment benefits ran out have stopped looking for jobs.Why? Well, we either made them weak by giving them free fishes rather than teaching them to fish or, there just are not any jobs, they know it and reason that it is a waste of their time to try. Meanwhile, small businesses are not hiring to any large degree. Again why should they with all the uncertainty. Big Parma is the latest to take their production overseas to South Korea and China, and President Obama is going to re-sign the South Korea trade treaty, but why – it has always been lopsided and unbalanced trade. How does that help jobs in America?Am I overdoing it here? Am I too over the top with condemnation for the performance of the Obama Administration you ask? Certainly not, and it’s not just me who is stating this anymore, there are hundreds of articles in the mainstream media every day on this reality – it’s no secret.You see, I’ve been carefully clipping various articles, real data, and putting it against those speeches and by the Obama Administration’s, Democrats in Congress, and reading the actual teleprompter scripts from President Obama himself. Turns out, hardly any of this political rhetoric is reality based, it’s just a lot of PR with very little viable leadership in my opinion. No you are not surprised, nor am I naive enough to believe anything will ever change regardless of who gets into office. Still, we all know that it’s not working, as we all have friends and/or neighbors, acquaintances who do not have jobs.Our current leadership in my opinion is unfit to lead, and these speeches have run their course and are now ineffectual. You and I should not be fooled, and so, we aren’t; neither are most Americans, and the best thing the Obama Administration can do at this point is to get out of the way. Let’s help them do that, let’s vote them out of office along with all the Democrat Leadership in Congress. Please consider all this.**Below I put together some reading material for you, so you know I am not blowing smoke and this is not purely a political hit piece. It’s just the way I see it, after reviewing the situation. Each of these articles contains bits and pieces to the puzzle and the truth, (I say pieces because we all realize we cannot believe everything in the news, just like we cannot believe everything our politicians tell us at the podium). I hope you will do your own research and consider what I am saying.References:LA Times; “Hiring at Small Businesses the Usual Engine of Growth, Sputters” [showing how things are not working as planned].

Healthcare In India

India is amongst a few of those countries having a universal healthcare system. A basic healthcare system is a one where the level of nutrition and the standard of living are raised for the people concentrating majorly on improving public health. Contrary to the above fact, Healthcare in India has always been a major challenge. The government has faced various difficulties in bringing sufficient healthcare facilities to the general public.The emergence of the private health sector has gained popularity better than the public health sector. Both urban and rural households now rely upon the former for its better services and availability of resources. According to the National Family Health Survey-3 the private medical healthcare sector is the primary source of healthcare in over 65-70% households in the country. This emerging healthcare market tends to being overpowered by the private healthcare sector. In India the life expectancy is 64/67 (m/f) years while the infant mortality rate is 46 per 1000 lives. With such statistics, failures in healthcare system are evident.Relying upon public and private health care sectors varies significantly between several states. There are quite a few reasons that account for relying on private rather than public sector. The main reason at the national level is poor quality of care in the public sector, with more than 57% of households pointing to this as the reason for a preference for private health care. Other major reasons are distance of the public sector facility, long waiting queues, and inconvenient hours of operation.Healthcare industry in India is a collective dose of various sectors within the Indian economic system which extensively provides goods and services to treat patients with therapeutic, pre-emptive, rehabilitative and palliative care for both short as well as a long term. This industry is trained and equipped to provide health needs of individuals and populations. The industry should include teams which have both professionals as well as paraprofessionals.The healthcare industry is considered to be one of the most evasive and largest growing industries in the world. In India healthcare providers are growing at a relatively higher pace, but are still considered to lack the basic business strength. Though the government programmes have helped the healthcare market to tame a few challenges the country’s performance on many health metrics is poor. The IMR (infant mortality rate) is seven times that of the United States and three times that of China. Almost 75% of babies in rural areas are born without any medical aid of skilled health personnel. India has 63 million diabetics and 2.5 million cancer sufferers, the majority of whom will not be diagnosed, much less treated. Seventy per cent of India’s 20 million blind people could be helped with simple surgery – ‘if’ it were available. Less than five per cent of the 2.5 million Indians annually who need heart surgery get it. Although India has 750,000 doctors and 1.1 million nurses, the practitioner density is about 25% that of America and less than half that of China. And there is a severe shortage of hospital beds and medical facilities- another unseen situation.The only way out of this pothole for the Indian healthcare industry is by aiming at provision of better standards of healthcare facilities to be affordable by all, in the coming decade. Fortunately, there are a few hospitals in India which have adopted innovative ways to seep their way out of this discouraging situation. The idea of focussing on serving both the poor and wealthy patients equally will turn out to be an essential element.Existence of proper medical facilities like test equipments, skilled personnel, availability of affordable medicines and existence of interactive medical aid programmes will incorporate an effective healthcare industry. India needs these facilities in almost every possible public and private healthcare facility.
