Can government promise better performance?


Editor, The Commercial:

When judging the promise of future performance, it’s always best to view past performances to determine the value of a promise to do better.

I have been a Medicare Part A participant since 2008. In 2013, I was hospitalized twice, once in January and again in April. It took nine months for Medicare to consider and pay the first bill. The second bill is still unpaid, leaving JRMC to operate without income. Coding and communication is not the problem. I have communicated with both parties in a crystal clear manner.

If our federal government has performed this poorly in the past, how can it back a promise of improved performance in the future with Obamacare? The answer is “Trust me. Don’t read the bill; just pass it now and find out what‘s in it later.”

What was it Henry Ford said? “If you trust the federal government, take another look at the American Indian.”

Can I get an Amen?
