"Him from the underground command post Deep in the bowels of a hidden bunker somewhere under the brick and steel of a nondescript building We have once again made contact with our leader Love then 7 three 8 one three 8 one one 8 7 7 three 8 one three one one All right You know one of the things that's done a lot on TV and radio is complaining and whining And of course talking So I got the thinking With respect to the vaccinations What can people do about it If they have a religious objection Or if they've already been subjected to the virus and have natural immunity What can be done Apart from drama apart from threats apart from destroying people's lives and I want to start off by saying this You can sue the hell out of your employer You can sue the hell out of your employer depending on your circumstances and the circumstances at that company First of all I tried to find a situation where the federal government Has ever passed a law mandating the use of vaccinations I didn't find a single one I didn't find a single one Because that's a state police power A state police power Regardless of people arguing well you know the virus is across state lines That's fine Do you know why Joe Biden hasn't yet issued A mandate Has turned to osha It's because he doesn't have the authority to issue a national mandate There is no statutory authority whatsoever It's never been done They still have not issued His executive order based on Osha regulations Because it wouldn't pass muster That's number one Federal government has no statutory authority None The issue a national mandate So that's number one Number two there's an excellent piece that was written by a professor by the name of I'm looking Ken Terry About the Kaiser family foundation and what they learned the legality of vaccination mandates The Kaiser family foundation or KFF report addressed the broader question of whether COVID-19 vaccination vaccination mandates are legal Which entities can require people to be vaccinated The federal government's authority to mandate vaccinations of any kind is limited The public health service act authorizes the secretary of Health and Human Services to adopt quarantine and isolation measures to stop the spread of disease among states But doesn't even mention vaccine mandates General vaccine excuse me are generally within the purview of state and local governments with the federal government but playing a supporting role The U.S. Supreme Court upheld a state vaccine mandate over a century ago the Jacobs in case 1905 but that's based on the state's police power In that case a local law we talked about this a month ago required all adults to be vaccinated against small parks during an outbreak All states today require vaccinations for school attendance The Supreme Court has endorsed those laws but those are state laws Some states also require adults to be vaccinated but these laws are very limited The report said current state vaccination laws for adults are focused on healthcare workers and patients in healthcare facilities rather than the general population And these state mandates generally require that the healthcare workers be offered certain vaccines and some required documentation employee vaccination status But the report didn't say that any states require these workers to be vaccinated This is why so many people are upset What's being done today has never been done in American history Has never been done In American history Period Now I want to pull up some other points here That I think are very important I looked at some other reports said professors or a sort of experts in this area Scott Bonvoy is a editor in chief of the national constitution center He points out several federal laws allow for vaccine exemptions for employees based on religious beliefs There would be title 7 of the Civil Rights Act in 1964 and the disability status under title one of the Americans with disabilities act And the U.S. equal employment opportunity commission confirmed these exemptions in May of 2021 federal EEO laws do not prevent an employer from requiring all employees physically entering the workplace to be vaccinated for COVID-19 So long as employers comply with the reasonable accommodation provisions of the ADA and title 7 of the Civil Rights Act of 64 and other EEO considerations The commission said in a statement Of an employer has a blanket vaccination requirement And doesn't consider or just makes the appearance of considering but not substantively consider legitimate medical and religious grounds For challenging the employer's mandate the employer has violated As well as potentially the Civil Rights Act in 1964 or depending on the issue the Americans with disabilities act if it's a medical issue So there's that What else I told you about the guidance From the EEOC I told you that's being done by organizations today has never been done before But what I also want you to know is a number of states have created laws protecting religious rights beyond the First Amendment Florida and Texas for example allow parents to opt their children out of school vaccinations Citing deeply held religious beliefs are philosophical opposition 21 states have religious freedom laws prohibiting even minimal interference with residents right to practice their faith In states with these laws legislatures may need to amend the statute to avoid challenges and allow for universal vaccination mandates for adults In other words the key is to look at the state law requirements So you have two courses here Two courses here Number one the federal equal employment opportunity commission And the use of the Civil Rights Act in 1964 in the Americans with disability acts again depending on what your situation is That's number one And number two under.

"A quick link over on cocky dot org yesterday. That really got me thinking. It's a piece in the atlantic by juliet. Kayem former assistant secretary for homeland security. During the obama administration basically arguing that the us federal government should make it a requirement for people to be vaccinated in order to travel on airplanes now while she cops that most airplanes filtration systems make transmission on the plane itself fairly rare. The bigger concern she says is transmission in airports and then wherever people are traveling to pointing out that the whole reason for international travel bans is to reduce spreads so is in our huge country with disparate state governments at similar risk and according to a recent new york times and kaiser family foundation pull that she shared forty one percent of people who said they were waiting to see about getting a vaccine would get one if they had to do so to travel even eleven percent of respondents who were entirely opposed to getting. The vaccine said they'd be swayed by travel ban quoting. I am the public debate. Making vaccination a precondition for travel employment and other activities as described this approach as vaccine mandates a term that to critics suggests that unvaccinated people are being ordered around arbitrarily. What is actually going on. Mostly is that institutions are shifting burdens to unvaccinated people denying them access to certain spaces requiring them to take regular cove in nineteen tests charging them for the cost of that testing rather than imposing greater burdens on everyone americans still have a choice to go unvaccinated but that means giving up on certain societal benefits. Nobody has a constitutional right to attend the lion.

"Biden tweeted that the ruling was a big win and the law remains as ever. A B F D Over the past decade, The law has reshaped the entire insurance industry and provides coverage for more than 30 million Americans. But President Trump vowed to repeal it. And with three new conservative justices he appointed now on the Supreme Court. 18 Red States took another swing, arguing once again that the law exceeded Congress's powers. It was a third strike their worst defeat yet a 72 ruling throwing the lawsuit out of court. Four of the court's conservatives, including Trump Appointees, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney. Barrett joined Justice Stephen Breyer is majority opinion, which said the states had no grounds to challenge it because they have failed to show it cause them any harm. Georgia was one of the states suing on this latest attempt to overturn the affordable care act. What's the long term effect for the peace state now that the Supreme courts upheld the law for the third time, Andy Miller is the CEO and editor of Georgia Health News. Well, I think it's good news. Uh, if you if you think about the fact that there are 500,000 or close to it people covered under the sea, a health insurance exchange. Those are people that don't have employer or government coverage. Who gets single Get individual or family coverage through Obamacare. Then you think about all the people with pre existing conditions. Who have been protected under the A. C a from insurance companies, charging them more for that health condition or actually not even offering a policy to them. There's also a lot of people with kids up to the age of 26, who have been covered. By the parents employer plan through the so a lot of good stuff in this Bill or in this law that was passed in 2010. And I think the Supreme Court again for the third time affirmed its, uh the law. It's the law of the land. President Biden reacting to the ruling and harking back to his infamous hot mic comment, he said today this this is a This is a B F D and we won't talk about what the F means there. But he's moving ahead. In fact, this about this covid 19 relief bill. Will significantly increase subsidies for private health plans and, well, things look like they're looking up for Georgians, even though we don't have universal Medicaid expansion in Georgia. That's correct. Uh, Scag Day. The Biden administration really up the, uh, the subsidies for people in the exchange? Uh, At the same time, they offered new incentives for states like Georgia to expand the Medicaid program. George is one of 12 states that have not done so. And there's there's new incentives that for the first two years of Georgia decided to expand Medicaid it would met. $700 million under a Kaiser Family Foundation analysis. I'm glad you mentioned that because there was a time not too long ago, Andy, where it looked like the affordable care act coverage was collapsing in Georgia. We're down to one provider and many of the districts. What's the status of it now or more people enthusiastic about it, and they are they getting a good deal? Well, I think that this new subsidy has really making a difference, particularly in people and kind of the middle range of that insurance exchange in terms of income and people at the high end. Who did not get a subsidy or now getting a subsidy for the first time, so I and I think there's more insurance companies now offering coverage. Uh, rather As before years ago, it was there was really a scarcity and in some areas may be only one plan one insurance plan in some parts of the state. Now there's There's pretty good competition, especially in metro Atlanta. That is good news for a lot of folks. You've been covering the Medicaid waiver process that George has been going through for some time. Where does that stand? And how does this ruling affect that? If any Well, I don't. I don't think directly. It does I I think it's kind of in limbo right now. The the Camp Administration has said that they're planning for a July First implementation. But the feds have been pretty critical of what the state has proposed, especially looking at the work requirement where someone like one of these low income adults have to either work or volunteer or do education. 80 hours a month. The feds have have basically said no to that in other states, and it would be very surprising if they did let Georgia have that. Requirement and start the waiver has its outlined currently. Andy Miller's here. 30 on Health News in Georgia with Georgia Health news, So it's good to catch up with you. Thanks for spending this time with us. Thanks, Scott. Great to be here. This is Atlanta's morning news Sunday edition. I'm Scott Slade this past week was named National Dog Bite Awareness Week by the United States Postal Service nearly 6000 postal workers bitten last year, It was a pandemic puppy crush more Americans than ever own dogs now. How can you avoid being bitten? We'll have an expert Carl Coppolino is a certified master trainer and canine behavioral specialists with four decades of experience, give us the big three things that folks can do to avoid being attacked by a dog. Got the most important thing is, If a dog comes to attack, you must control the situation. You have to take control. That's the last thing an aggressive dog expect. So there's three things you did right off the bat one. You must break the dogs, man set. The best way to do that is to Get your hands in a popping this position. We're throwing your arm out in your palm up and killing the dog back back back in a very loud and forceful voice. You know, it's scream at the dog. You just put your hand toward them and tell them back. They're not expecting that. Second thing you do is you have to stabilize yourself. And you're doing all this within a few seconds and you do that by turning sideways. Bad ways gives you more stability. That's how boxers operate. Help people operate the self defense. It also makes you less of a target. Third thing it does is it makes you less threatening. Well, don't you want to be more threatening? No, You don't want to provoke a dog fight. You want to prevent a dogfight? The third thing you do is you deflect the dog? Well, how do you do that? You get their attention on something else. And the best way to do that is to grab a shoe pop off one of your shoes. Lost it towards the dog. The dog typically will take it up, Start shaking it made and take off. They love the smell and texture of a human shoe. That's one of the first things they eat when they're growing up as a puppy. So those are the big 3 38 years. We have never had a client hurt. Well, Carl, what happens if you're attacked? I mean, what should you do? If the dog is actually now is not responding in in in in any kind of positive way. How do you deflect deflected attack of a dog gets his mouth on you? Well, if it targets his mouth on you. You do what you normally wouldn't do instinctively, and that is you Don't start pulling your arm or your leg away from the dock. That makes the dog Brandon even more and get a hold of you. Way you can get rid of them to two methods. One you actually push into the dog with your arm or your leg? That's typically where the advice that's called feeding a bike. The dog will gag and you have a split second to get your Body parts out of there and turn around and get the dog as hard as you can. You want to keep your hit him and those are in the gut. Those are the two most vulnerable spots. The other thing is, if a dog's got a hold of you and the head is up close to you. You grab their front, Paul, and you twisted as if you're going to break it off. That front part is a Very, very sensitive part of a dog, and it will bring the largest dog to the ground when you twist it like that. You have actually testified a dog bite trials. Your recognize expert around the country. Speak to just second that the dog owner responsibilities well, what kind of legal trouble Or could you be? And if your dog winds up attacking someone else? Well dogged by claims right now in the Atlantic area average about $50,000 per claim they run as high as a million dollars..

Almost Suzanne Font takes a closer look at the ongoing nursing shortage. We asked the Department of Health exactly how seriously nursing shortages but they haven't been able to give us exact numbers.

Scherer we'll scientist at the fda have been reviewing the clinical trial data that included more than two thousand kids and it appears to be all positive children in this age. Group develop a lot of antibodies. They have very mild side effects and pfizer says older participants in the trial will continue to be monitored for long term protection and safety for an additional two years got it so as far as efficacy and side effects are concerned it's basically affecting them just like it as adults. Yeah pretty much so. I spoke to patricia stench field. She is a nonvoting member of. Cdc's advisory committee on immunization practices. This is the group that makes recommendations she says from what's been released so far. The vaccine appears to be very effective than this age. Group seems to be one hundred percent effective. No child in the study. How on that. Twelve to fifteen year old. Adolescence got kobe. Very few kids. Got a fever. Many had arm pain just like adults and stints field says the benefits seemed too far outweigh any risks. That's kind of incredible one hundred percent effective right. And that's what was shown in the trial setting now in the real world. We might come to find out. Isn't one hundred percent but certainly early suggests it's very very effective but it appears that some parents are hesitant to get this vaccine for their kids. Right yes a recent survey from the kaiser family foundation found only three in ten parents of children in this age groups they would they would get their child vaccinated as soon as the vaccine is available. Many say they'll wait now. I spoke to dr li beers about this. She's the president of the american academy of pediatrics. She says she's not surprised that there's hesitancy out there. And she says pediatricians are going to be working really hard in the coming weeks and months to reassure parents and help answer questions.
The Pandemic Is Taking Its Toll on Health Care Workers
"A year ago when the pandemic hit the united states took to argue even solid was working. As a researcher stanford university solace is a surgeon but wasn't practicing medicine at the time but seeing the need for doctors in new york city flew there in april of last year to volunteer her time at hospital. Working in the icu. Now remember spring of two thousand twenty. It was still the early days of the pandemic and new york was the first city in the united states to be hit so hard all my feelings and thoughts were by far by the people. Dying wasn't much in terms of treatment for covid. Nineteen at the time and the number of people getting hospitalized and dying was climbing fast almost every day for almost every patient. I'm calling saying there is no improvement and maybe things are worse right from the start of the pandemic healthcare workers have stepped up beyond what many of them were trained to do so to say that this past year has been stressful for them is an understatement for me. I think it's mostly been anxiety. I think that i've had Definitely tendencies toward depression. And i have seen a therapist in the last six months or so. A recent poll by the kaiser family foundation and the washington post found that about six in ten healthcare workers a struggling with mental health issues as a result of the stress of the pandemic more than half say they're burnt out which is a response to chronic stress at work. One of the things that has come out of my time in the icu has been a need for more connection with people. I think when we see people dying every day We need some reassurance that that there is

Will stone is more on a new poll from the Kaiser Family Foundation. The poll found that with each month goes by more people in the US are ready to get their shot of a covert vaccine. Only about 17% of people now say they want to wait and see before being vaccinated in January, That number was over 30%, according to the Kaiser report. What's also striking is that this growing enthusiasm happened across all racial and ethnic groups. That shift was highest among black adults. Still, about one in five Americans either say they definitely won't get vaccinated or will only do so. If it's required by their work school or for other activities. The group most likely to answer they don't want to be vaccinated were Republicans and white evangelical Christians for NPR news? I'm will stone An
The New Campaign To Remedy COVID-19 Vaccine Doubt Within Black Communities Online
"Of ad campaigns aimed at promoting vaccines in debunking myths about them. Last week, the Ad Council launched its ad featuring four former presidents, including Barack Obama. You will protect you and those you love from this dangerous and deadly disease. Biden administration plans to ramp up its own vaccination campaign in the coming weeks. Many of these campaigns and to reach a black community hit hard by both covert 19 and disinformation. NPR's Yuki Noguchi reports. As far back is nine months ago, pediatrician and health activist Rhea Boyd noticed Social Media Post citing false information about the safety of vaccines in development before any of the vaccines had reached emergency use authorization. We already saw that disinformation targeting black communities online, the State Department since blamed Russian intelligence operatives for spreading some of those rumors. But at the time, Boyd says, it wasn't clear where it was coming from, You know, it would just look like a user with sow seeds of doubt. It doesn't look like a campaign for misinformation. It looks like a bunch of users who are sharing their own conversations about what they think about the vaccine and what seems like insider information boy decided to push back with her own campaign. She framed hers, too, as a conversation, one based on questions, her family and neighbors were already asking, she says Many of the questions people have about vaccines are universal. But many people in communities of color can't get answers because they lack access to medical care. Boyd works with the Kaiser Family Foundation and historically black colleges. This month, they posted a syriza videos, including one featuring comedian Kamau Bell, posing questions to black medical professionals. First question the vaccine happened fast, like

CDC launches VaccineFinder tool to locate COVID-19 vaccine providers
"19 vaccine, But you can't find one help could be on the way. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has just launched an online search tool in partnership with Boston Children's Hospital. Help people identify which facilities have supplies of the vaccine. It's called vaccine finder dot org's. This initial launch is limited to certain providers in most states, NPR's Selena Simmons, Duffin has details. When you put in your zip code at vaccine, find her dot org's. You see an interactive map showing local pharmacies that get Cove in 19 vaccine doses from the federal government. You also see whether they have doses in stock. If you live in Alaska, Indiana, Iowa or Tennessee, you're in luck. Because in those states, the maps show more places administering Cove in 19 vaccines. Not just pharmacies, but private hospitals and clinics and public health sites, ideas to show vaccine providers that are open to the public. How to contact them how to book an appointment. And kind of show the daily inventory status of people are clearing where there's vaccine and where there isn't That's John Brownstein, the founder of Vaccine Finder and chief information officer at Boston Children's Hospital, he says. After this initial launch, more providers in more places are expected to join in in the coming days and weeks. That scene finder is actually not new. It began nine years ago. It all started after each one. Anyone where we want to figure out how to provide the population with the best possible insights and where vaccine was in their communities, and since then We have been building this platform usually showing people where to get the seasonal flu shot or travel vaccines, Bronstein says. In recent months, a team of about three dozen people has been working feverishly to launch this tool toe work for people looking for covert 19 vaccines. While navigating the fact that at this moment, vaccine supplies relatively low and eligibility is limited, both of which constrained how useful the tool is. In case the Kaiser Family Foundation says she wishes this tool had been around a few weeks ago. In the meantime, many states have created their own provider maps people can use, and that's added to this confusing patchwork. This idea has a lot of potential, but I think there's still some questions about what will it be like in practice. There are also concerns about how many providers will put their information on vaccine finder and whether the providers will really update their inventory every 24 hours. I've seen finders John Brown seen acknowledges. This is not a silver bullet. What we're trying to do is add a resource into the mix to help consumers. Of course not all problems get solved with a new website. And he says they have partnerships to put vaccine find her info about where vaccine providers are located and who has shot's available in lots of different places online from Google maps to the traffic app ways too Good are ex, so it's not just about coming in the website, but meeting consumers where they are. Are on making sure that anybody who's looking for a vaccine knows where to find them. The supply of Corona virus vaccine doses is growing. The Biden administration says it's now sending out over 16 million doses a week and increase of more than 70% since inauguration. Assuming that trend continues, more shots will be available and more providers like clinics and even doctors. Offices will be able to begin distributing vaccine doses as well. So people can look forward to a time when Cove in 19 vaccine doses are abundant and everyone is eligible. And you might even be able to ask your smart speaker to find a clinic nearby with vaccine doses and stock and head over to get your shot. Selena Simmons Duffin

"It's morning edition from NPR News. I'm Noel King and I'm Steve Inskeep. It is abruptly a dramatic moment for democracy somewhere other than the United States as we are reporting elsewhere, Myanmar's military staged a military coup using election fraud is their pretext and in Russia. Many people spent the weekend demanding the release of opposition leader Alexei Navalny. Human rights activists say more than 5000 people were arrested nationwide. Navalny you'll recall was arrested in January after returning from Germany, where he had been recovering from a poison attack that he blames on the Kremlin. NPR's Lucian Kim is in Moscow and was at the protest in the Russian capital. Hey there, Lucy in Good morning, Steve. What did you see? Well yesterday, the police didn't take any chances, and they simply sealed off the entire downtown area. They closed metro stations blocked off sidewalks to pedestrians, and they flooded the streets with riot police and police trucks. So the protesters responded to that and change their tactics and just walked around the city center in large groups of people. Hardly anybody I met wanted to admit that they were protesting since the penalties for unauthorized rallies are really severe. I spoke to one protester, he said his name was Andrej Cat Cough. He's a 27 year old manager in a trading company. I'm just well can No, it's my city and the I just want to have some time outside. That's my right, he said. For him, this was not only a conflict between President Vladimir Putin and Alexei Navalny, he said. It was much bigger, he said. It's about a clash of generations between people who grew up in the Soviet Union and young people like him with open minds. We are now living in another country. We have another mentality. No Soviet mentality more. You represents a growing number of Russians who don't have any memory of politics in the pre Putin era, and right now they're feeling very frustrated and boxed in. I'm kind of enjoying the idea of a protester just saying I just happened to be out for a walk, Mr Kim, along with thousands of other people, but it's clear from what you said that there was a big police presence. Does the Kremlin genuinely feel threatened here? Well, first of all, we should emphasize that these protests took place in many towns and cities across Russia, which is hugely significant because in the past, they've mostly been concentrated in large urban areas. This protest is truly national, and there are arrests in dozens of cities, including in the conservative Russian Heartland that has traditionally been very loyal to Putin. The Kremlin is extremely sensitive about this, and that's why we saw so many arrests. They're really just trying to scare people off the streets. But to its own constituents, the Kremlin is trying to project confidence state television eyes downplaying the size of the protests and trying To portray them as isolated actions, and the Russian Foreign Ministry is actually accusing the United States of interfering in Russian politics. It's really angry that the State Department has expressed its support for Russians right to demonstrate peacefully and these kind of statements, of course, give the Russian authorities a good opportunity to blame outsiders for stirring up. These protests were very briefly who's in the opposition and what comes next for them? Well, The Russian opposition is very defused. And these protests represent more than just support from Navalny as we heard from that young man. Kremlin's cracking down on Navalny's allies inside the country. Navalny's team outside the country is still in charge of these protests. Navalny has a court date tomorrow and Navalny's team using social media eyes calling on people to show up at the court tomorrow morning, Lucy and thanks for the update, really appreciate it. Thanks, Steve. That's NPR's Lucian Kim in Moscow. Americans in general are becoming more willing to get the cove in 19 vaccine. That's according to a new poll from the Kaiser Family Foundation. But Brenda Leone, a reporter with Connecticut Public Radio, found that Latinos are often more skeptical than the general population. Here's why The stress of the medical system for the thing Garcia goes back to when she arrived from Mexico 15 years ago as an undocumented teenager, she and her family came to pick tobacco on a ranch about half an hour's drive north of Hartford. Your heart because you know you almost. Maybe when I started working in the tobacco field, we hardly ever went to the doctor. I don't believe anyone spoke about health insurance, either, she says. After she got permanent status, she trained to become a community health worker and now helps new mother's learned about the benefits of breastfeeding. Even though Garcia recently had covert 19. She's not convinced. Getting vaccinated is a good idea made. I mean, okay, okay. Think of anorexia. I'm afraid I'll have a negative reaction to the vaccine, she says. And she's not alone in being hesitant, According to the Kaiser Family Foundation survey. More than half of Latino adults are in no rush to get vaccinated. Leonie Arroyo is the director of Hartford's local health department. She says many Latino residents have historical reasons to be skeptical. She recalls the Tuskegee experiment in the mid 20th century when black men were deliberately not treated for syphilis. So researchers could study them. But there are awful things that happened in the Latino community that we don't necessarily always talk about. Like the experiments in the 19 forties, where the U. S Public health Service used sex workers to expose prisoners in Guatemala in jails with sexually transmitted diseases or in the 19 fifties, where Puerto Rican woman from low income communities Were given experimental birth control pills without being told they were part of a clinical trial. Arroyo says her department is aware that some people don't want their personal information shared with the federal government. And so for us if someone is undocumented, and does not feel comfortable having all of the information in this database, then we're gonna work with them to put on Lee the information that's absolutely necessary. Connecticut has made covert vaccines free and anyone can receive them regardless of immigration status, or whether they have insurance coverage. You could Yes, said it's Terry. The opening When you've got the spanner in Espanol, But Akesson that's Dr Jorge Merino, an internist and an assistant professor at the Yale School of Medicine. He made this YouTube video describing his experience getting the covert 19 vaccine because, he says members of the Latino community want to hear from a trusted source. There was very little information available in Spanish, and there was little information available from Hispanic providers that could speak the language that could relate give their experience about the vaccine. Back in her home, Garcia is still recovering from covert 19 supporting breastfeeding moms remotely Some have acts for her thoughts about the vaccine, lowering that one more time. The truth is when I'm asked about the vaccine, I share information, but not my own views. Her own view is in line with the 9% of Latinos in America, who say they would only get the vaccine if.

"Speaking of polls, the Kaiser Family Foundation has asked seniors about their lives that this is interesting, the isolation and it's important Thanksgiving weekend. We think about people who don't have what we have the ability to travel the ability to share time with friends and loved ones, all of that sort of thing, which is important.

It was a tough customer, and she was realized he's kind of a tough customer, too. But she was really good at taking care of him. And for that I was very thankful, and I told her that many times. Ondo, So in her last year or two, she became frail. She was very much an athlete, you very much in good shape. But now get into the nineties and things start to break down. On D I know that she spent time but especially last three or four months when she just kind of gave up because nobody when covert started, they wouldn't let anybody in And so she crying her room she would be about. I mean, we know the stories about it. She lost a lot of weight because she didn't eat because you feel like she had any reason to steep to stay living. I think a lot of people Will feel that way, and they're not touching other human beings. There's nothing more important than being in touch in some way, shape or form. For whatever the reason. It's the most important part about human connection. Being in touched, and we could do it today and face time and that sort of thing Various Meg, But there's nothing that beats going into a room or a place and looking at somebody and smiling and having a little conversation.

I'm gonna do The same thing she it's a boy fest. Exactly right. They're all trying to Get the last round. Inasmuch as anything else, I guess so that's what they do.

They make dinner together, so she has heard dinner at the same time. Her family doesn't so they share dinner time on Facetime, which that was kind of an interesting, unique way of kind of an interesting twist on reality, right, so you can't be there with them, but I have not seen that before You were there.

"You can keep your insurance. And none of that has has has turned out to be true. And the prices are going up ever supposed to solve all of that. It did not solve that. So we have experience with the government managing our healthcare and going back to this. Kaiser family foundation survey. About half the people thought they would be able to keep their insurance under Medicare for all plan. And I'm what what part of Medicare for all. Did you not understand you have to be in this government program? You don't get to keep your insurance anymore and the more they found out that what my insurance company would go away yet gone. Got it dropped from seventy four percent down into the thirty percent range of people going. Oh, I I'm still for it. Eight five five two nine five sixty six hundred Dr dawn in California. Hello, dr. Hi, tom. How are you can hear me? Okay. Here you loud and clear. Yes, sir. What are you Meghan? Sitting here. I'm a physician here in Sacramento. Practising for twenty five years in the subject so near and dear to my heart that I could talk all day, but I won't. One thing people are forgetting is that medical care in this country is one sticks of our economy. And as I recall our economy something around twenty twenty five trillion dollars a year. Yeah. So it's very there's a lot of money. They're theoretically, however that being said, I'm a relatively conservative guy know that the government cannot do this very well. And so I would never advocate Medicare Medicare is broken. Probably gonna go belly up for not careful. You you can't you can't be a physician and take Medicare because you can't actually make a living. It's just not a chance. But here's here's the problem. Here's the problem. Doctor is that young people. You don't you don't have a lot of young people knocking on your door for appointments, you have old people. So what do you do that threat? Well, you know, it's a big subject that I want to throw another wrench into work. But and I am not in favor of a European style socialized medicine, but what they do. And how they do. It is so far different than what's being prescribed. The Democrats are talking about free healthcare free for everybody. That's not what it is. In Europe in Europe. There's full trans transparency as far as the cost and the government says what they'll pay for. And if there's a difference to consumer themselves pay the difference, the problem in the United States is that the consumer of the service had absolutely nothing to do with the cost of it. And right gone completely amok in all directions. Right, right. And it won't be won't be solved won't be solved until people actually have to purchase it like they purchase everything else in life where they have to reach into their pocket and pay for medical care, medical medical services. And. Until you being a right? Yeah. That's why this idea of being a right is so corrosive because it separates the consumer from the service. Yes. So let me ask you you. I I don't want to you want to volunteer. The the decade of age that you're in. But you don't sound like an old doctor you sound like a fairly young guy. I'm fifty eight. You sound younger you sound younger. So you're perfect. If you're fifty eight. You know, that you're kind of in that that middle part where the younger doctors coming in with the medical school with a different view of practicing as a physician, then the older people did. And as a result, you're kind of stuck in the middle. You're too young to retire. And you're too old to not remember what Medicare medicine used to be like, whereas fee for service, and all that sort of stuff. So I don't know what you're gonna do. How do you? You're going to have more government. I practice practice in a part of medicine that the patient's paying me directly. So I'm not in impacting it. Like that. Okay. But it I can tell you that the only way you can't make Medicare work and Medicaid forget it, and you know, because it's so inefficient and they pay. So little part of the reason why we have all this cost shifting and disaster on the economics of medicine is it for thirty years the government came in and walked it the doctor and said, I know you want to charge one hundred dollars, but we're only going to pay you seven bucks because the federal government says, that's all we have to pay you and the doctors and the hospitals have to make it up somewhere else. Right. And that's one of the reasons why L L spill healthcare bills. You get from hospitals and positions of reflect what it actually costs them deliver the service. Well, I'll tell you something you. Been talking about about healthcare ObamaCare, all that stuff for many, many many many years in the decade or so that I've been talking about it since Obama girl came onto the scene I have had numerous calls from physicians only one MD ever said that they liked the government program. Everybody else all of you, and your and your colleagues have all said, this is terrible. This isn't good medicine. It's not a good way to address medical in our medical care in our country. And it drives a lot of physicians into doing other things. Or retiring earlier, or like, you said I have I have a friend who got who got out of. I don't want to give his specialty. But basically is doing plastic surgery because it's no insurance. It's cash on the barrel. What I do for a living. Yeah. Well, you you, you know, what as as a business model? I don't blame you Dr. I don't blame you. I I do it on my own Kermit when my patients, they they take we take care of each other. They say, thank you. It's very simple equation. Grind to do insurance. Now is completely untenable. You can't do it in. It's. It's very sad because you have the greatest healthcare system in the world. That was destroyed you the problem with ObamaCare was based on an incredible lie when when ObamaCare for my family, and my office, I used to chart we pay about a thousand dollars a month for pretty good care and a couple of years ago because of California care other things I was paying thirty seven thousand dollars a year for just my family for silver care because my income was high enough that I had to pay that versus. I mean, that's just crazy right thousand versus thirty seven thousand. Yes. That doesn't make any sense. So I don't know where this is going. But I I can see the candidates for president are all talking about it because it polls well at first blush. But you know, and I know and a lot of them know that they're they're trying to come up with different names because they know they cannot deliver Medicare for all. It's not gonna happen will not happen. So. I appreciate you checking in I think, you're smart on the. Yeah. Friend of mine does plastic surgery. Great doctor, but got out of doing other things because of the hassle. And this way, he deals with you want some plastic surgery. This is the fee write me a check. We've got only a minute left, but not fair to be to another caller. So hang on callers. This is my point in bringing this up is that. I understand the presidential candidates. First of all for the democrat party have to run to the left. That's what you do. If you're democrat. You have to run to the left for the primaries. And yet they know that Medicare for all isn't viable. And the and the polling is being done by Kaiser family foundation and others. Is pointing out the more that you tell people what it really is going to be offered to you the less popular it is. But most people don't pay attention. And they're gonna save Medicare for all. I'm for that person..

It's gonna hurt a little bit. I it's the crazy thing is I have I have a buddy who's Antarctica right now. He's on. He does these projects every year. He's he's like a heavy equipment operator. And they're they're digging out these crevasses. To do scientific work in them. And he's blowing stuff up and he says, they sleep intense. Wow. He goes I have never been as cold as I am right now because it's windy down there. And this is their warm time. Yeah. He's had never been this cold. And he's been on his his third year down there.

They'll cut out like a square, and you can jump in quick naked Sudan and just to say that you went into like these sub zero temps and then the pull yacht right away. But it's like this rite of passage that a lot of those guys will do. Yeah. He he's a he's a little bit crazy crazy anyway. But he's done it for three years, and he keeps going back. So you must like it. Interesting segue to my topic. All right. So I would say running around outside with no clothes on in the court, really, cold, extreme weather. We have is probably a good way to get sick. Which leads me to this conversation about healthcare. What are we take away from the midterm elections? Other than Democrats made some inroads took over the house took over the governor's office in Wisconsin. Several other things changed hands across the country. But poll after poll broadcast after broadcast suggests that the big issue interview after interview really because I had many people on my show. So Jesse that healthcare was one of these topics that we all cared about. And like a lot of things as Americans. We we deal with the superficial. We're on the top layers of some of these things, and this is one of those classic cases in points. So when you ask and the Kaiser family foundation asked Americans. About supporting a single payer health insurance system, basically health care for all Medicare for all. Fifty six percent said absolutely forty-two percent said don't like the idea, and that's all well and good until you ask them about paying for that. And specifically if you ask them. Would you be ok with raising taxes your taxes, not the country's taxes, but your taxes personally to pay for these Medicare for all health care for all single payer health insurance. All of a sudden that fifty six percent. Plummets to thirty seven percent, basically a third of the population. Therein lies the problem. Sounds fantastic. Absolutely cover. Everybody. Give them whatever they need. Although in many ways, it would blow up the healthcare system. We have now because we have employer paid in many cases as we do here. Good karma. Or wherever you work. I think more than half the population has employer paid health insurance. So probably would mess that up a bit changed the dynamics chains benefits for employees because that's a big chunk of your benefits. Right. The fact that they're paying that not not just medical but dental vision in some cases, so that's kind of the reality under the reality. Yeah. We all love the idea not all of us. But some people love the idea fifty six percent of us loved the idea of free healthcare. But we don't want to pay for it. And you know, what else comes out of this is we all love the idea of someone else paying for it. If you're one of those folks who thinks this is a great idea. Now, I'm not here. I'm going to sit here and say, there's no issues with the healthcare system. I just had surgery three months ago, two months ago. Bill for a scope on your knee is about fifteen thousand bucks. So whatever your thing is whether it's a knee replacement hip replacement heart surgery God forbid beyond that cancer. I understand these are catastrophic things that can affect you. And those are the things I really think our country, and our government should be focused on how do we fix those things? So people don't get wiped out. I'm gonna take a quick break. But after the break, I want to give you some facts real facts, not broadcasting facts, not propaganda facts, not political facts about healthcare in this country. The latest numbers that I have and how we spend our money where it goes how much waste there is let's start with that baseline. This is not a one day discussion. This is a homework topic. If you want to say it that way because yeah, everybody loves this idea. Fifty six percent majority of free healthcare. There's a lot more to it. And when I say, this is the radio program, we'd have to check your brain at the door. Here's here's case one. Yeah. We liked that idea unless we have to pay for it may give me some facts and statistics about healthcare in this country. How relates to the world how much abuse and fraud? There is let's start with that reality. And then we'll move from there. More next right here. WTMJ WTMJ's.
