This just came across the wire from the Jerry Hayden for Congress campaign:

CA CD 46 Jerry Hayden: “Obamacare Is Holding Back the Economy.”

(Santa Ana, CA)- Today, Orange County Businessman and California GOP endorsed candidate Jerry Hayden called out Obamacare as one of the major reasons the economy continues to languish and is hurting the people of the 46th Congressional District.

“Small business owners are terrified at this huge government mandate,” said Hayden. “Obamacare’s looming presence has virtually shut down hiring as the nation’s businesses prepare for the worst. The uncertainty, and the threat of Obamacare must be removed. If the Supreme Court doesn’t do it, then Congress should act immediately.”

“Never before has the federal government mandated individual citizens into an economic market they were not already participating in,” continued Hayden. “The size and scope of our national government has far outgrown what the founders intended. I’ll be a solid vote to repeal Obamacare.”

For over twenty years, Jerry Hayden has directed successful financial and investment strategies for Orange County families and businesses. Jerry has also given his time to the community, including serving eight years as the volunteer freshman football coach at Foothill High School. Jerry also served on the Board of Directors for School Power, where he helped raise tens of thousands of dollars to fund public school teachers’ extra budgetary classroom needs.

Those around Jerry Hayden know he is a hard-working advocate for better public schools, more private sector job opportunities, and greater efficiency in government.

The youngest of 11 children, Jerry Hayden grew up in Garden Grove and in the Santa Ana/Tustin area, where the family bought a home on a lemon orchard. His father was a doctor and Colonel in the United States Army Reserves. Jerry Hayden completed his Bachelors’ Degree in Business Finance from San Diego State University. Jerry, his wife Helen and their daughters Lauren and Katie enjoy the California outdoors in their free time and celebrate Jerry and Helen’s wedding anniversary every 4th of July.

    So, what do you propose we do when an uninsured person needs medical care? Rather than getting that person to a doctor when they could be cured by antibiotics, we should ensure that they don’t get medical care since they can’t afford it? Then after that settles in and becomes something much worse and requires a long term stay at a hospital, but since they don’t have medical insurance, just who the heck do you think pays for the emergency room (the most expensive delivery of medicine) and then the long term hospital care?

    While the health care plan delivered (Romney/Obama-care) is far from what should be done (single payer), it is actually a step forward in lowering costs for medical care for all. By eliminating the ER as the primary care provider for the uninsured there will be massive cost reductions in the delivery of medical care. By catching medical problem earlier in those that currently wait and do not get medical care due to the costs, we will reduce the costs for the delivery of care, and may even save lives.

    CBO scoring tends to be non-paretisan. When they score the plan, and then score eliminating the plan proposed, the cost for elimination are always greater than the costs for keeping it. While an argument can be made that the plan is flawed (and I believe it is as it relies on for profit private insurance rather than just opening up Medicare for all) the advantages of the plan in lowering overall costs, covering millions of people who are not covered, and ensuring that family planning is a core part of the plan,are steps in the right direction in terms of controling costs for the average working class American.

    So, Jerry, if you are saying that the plan is flawed and should be fixed with single payer, you have my unconditional support. If on the other hand you believe that the uncontrolled market of for-profit insurance is the best possible system for controlling the cost and delivery of medical care, that would be a hard sell since every study shows that it is not only far from the best, but it has the United States ranking about 50th in the world in the effective delivery of medical care. It’s great if you have the money to afford for-profit plans that cover everything, but as the cost for your for-profit plans drop, so does the effective coverage. The working class really loses when the for-profit market runs the show.

    I’ve been surfing online greater than 3 hours these days, but I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It’s lovely price sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you probably did, the internet will likely be a lot more helpful than ever before. “When there is a lack of honor in government, the morals of the whole people are poisoned.” by Herbert Clark Hoover.
