I used this
website to propose my Healthcare Stimulus Card for the 2008-2009 economic
stimulus package because I already have the website and can quickly update
it. November 9, 2008.

Healthcare Stimulus Card
President-elect Barack Obama and Congress are promising
another 2008 or early-2009 economic stimulus package for the people. It
should come in the form of a Healthcare
Stimulus Card (HSC). Please add your comments to improve
this proposal, and then pass it on to everyone you know. We need to make
this happen for the good of the country, for the good of all of us.
The government should give out a stimulus
money card that must be used for qualified healthcare or for other uses
Keep the rules simple. Use an existing eligibility list,
such as is used for healthcare spending accounts, to define what people
can spend the HSC on. Then, expand that list to include
health insurance premiums, co-pays, deductibles, eye care and supplies,
dental care and supplies.
Some will say, “It’s not enough. $700 won’t buy my insurance
for a year,” or “I don’t have any healthcare expenses
now.” Then I suggest that they be allowed to donate some
or all of their money to charities and religious organizations,
providing that those organizations, in turn, provide the card/money to
needy people to use for healthcare.
Require that providers must give similar discounts to HSC holders
as are given to people insured under the major insurance plans.
How crazy is it to charge the highest list price to those who can least
afford it because they don’t have an insurance company negotiating
fees for them?
Why a Healthcare Stimulus Card? Why not just a free-money
give-away, or stimulus money for infrastructure, or 2 months of mortgage
• It will be an immediate beginning of delivery
on the promised healthcare for all.
• This (HSC) will be the perfect “trial run”
to see where the shortcomings will be when we finally implement national
healthcare. It will expose where the medical system becomes
overburdened, where new staff (jobs), hours, procedures, changes in services,
electronic records, and reduced paperwork are needed. It will show us
how we the people really will react when we think we
have “free” healthcare coverage, so we might as well use it.
• Save money and lives immediately because of preventative
care that many people will get—flu shots, blood pressure checkups,
cholesterol tests, diabetes medicine. “I have to spend this money
on healthcare, so I might as well get a flu shot or medicine to lower
my blood pressure.”
• More people will be able to pay for existing
healthcare bills, relieving states of that burden.
• Insurance premiums will stabilize a bit because
more people will pay existing bills and the paying customer will not be
subsidizing as many non-paying customers.
• Many new jobs will
be created quickly to handle the sudden load of people demanding a first
time physical exam or office visit or a shot. Employers and schools will
start planning for more job training and job creation that will be needed
when we get national healthcare. It will give us time to react.
• Providers will compete for these limited healthcare
dollars by figuring out how to serve more people in less time, how to
deliver routine tests and checkups quicker and cheaper, even by changing
their hours or where they deliver their services. We will see that wonderful
American ingenuity alive and well at work.
• The HSC will quickly stimulate far more than healthcare
because millions of people who already have their healthcare costs insured
will apply the HSC to their existing healthcare premiums or bills that
they already are paying, and they will be able to get a refund of premiums
already paid. That is extra cash that they will use to
spend on any products and services and this will stimulate the
economy. It will give people money to use to
buy cars, and this may help the auto industry. The government
will not tell people how to spend this money, so it will be spent everywhere
in the economy. Stores will offer huge sales to attract
• Many people are losing their jobs and their healthcare coverage
in the current economic meltdown. They can use this HSC to continue an
• Infrastructure projects would take too long to start and to show
results. They are needed and should come from another budget, and they
need much more money than will be in the consumer stimulus package.
• The bailout package is already looking at the mortgage problem.
This second stimulus package must go directly to the people.
• Free money last time didn’t stimulate the economy very much.
This new plan will.
If a stimulus is needed right now, then
let’s do something that stimulates right now. Else,
don’t waste our tax dollars on a stimulus package that will be too
little, too late.
