Colleges and universities have caught the analyst that I don't professes.
-- That's to avoid the new health care rules.
In the three years his body and companies -- only asked our next guest has brought has a wide range of medical topics but perhaps -- More than on Obama cash doctor mom -- joins us now off.
You know you started with us -- Three years ago for longer than that actually threw -- those three years you've told us that Obama cat is a disaster.
How much I'm about to follow.
-- it all started on this program when someone said in my year when your senior producer said.
It -- about care it's not about extending care to more people it's about extending insurance.
And once I started thinking about it that way understated because insurance.
Right now is an over inflated product when you talk about more and more preventive services more and more bells and whistles more and more things covered less -- -- -- out of pocket.
It's the whole problem with the entitlement society.
People say I got the card I'm gonna go to get taken -- -- we have a doctor shortage we don't have the ability to see people like this.
The thing wasn't conceived of in the doctor's office it was conceived of and -- bureaucrats office.
I feel we went into Health Care Reform to get basic cost down that it is manifestly failed to do that it is actually raise the cost of medical cat.
Treatment and insurance for everybody on what was like how.
Can -- bring the cost down.
I insurers if they -- -- stay in business are gonna raise premiums to compensate for the increasing cost at a time of great technology if you wanna use the technology I think.
A lot of the technology is gonna get squeezed out by Obama -- but whatever technology remains -- is expensive.
So the cost get transferred onto the consumer so it's redistribute some form of redistribution of income -- -- -- distributing the wealth.
Basically using the health caste system to do it because you know.
Try to cover every exactly you try to cover everyone with a product that really not everyone could afford.
I wanna move on to a different subject real good one this one.
I want to give pat on the back because you've been reporting on the of reopening of -- all hospital -- Is that aligned on center of NYU NYU and go medical center you know that's the culture.
That's right that's the opposite story because that's about an entrepreneurial spirit that's about employees who were still getting a salary but no hospital opened.
These employees were caretakers without anyone to care for.
Like a fireman without holding a little like what it was closed because of arrogance and it was closed there was 151000.
Gallons of water in the base okay it was closed.
Close to a million people a year get their care they're in some way shape or form.
Inpatient or outpatient.
They had no access to care -- they had no emergency services they had nowhere to deliver their babies no one thought our medical center could reopen -- just.
Less than two short -- you -- it yourself -- the people who want -- did it absolutely -- down about eight Olympics subsidy from the government to to get FEMA how well they can't help but they didn't get anything sufficient with what they needed to reopen the medical center the dean told me doctor Grossman that the key was the spirit.
It was courage it was people saying I need a place to work I need to be able to see my patients again.
That's the kind of entrepreneurial spirit we talk about on this program all the time that's look at the medical center -- -- in advance of what people thought now.
When you saw it on the set up we have labor and delivery back we have an urgent care center to take care of this flu epidemic.
You can come there weren't any medical problem right now on BTB care for surgery reopened.
