A Light Went On

Dr Consults with Federal Obamacare for Direction In my world of engineering, I studied project management. Last week, I thought about one of the basic tenets of the training. A light went on above my head. A picture emerged on the subject of  health care. There is a rush by the democratic snake oil salesman to sell the American public on the need for a radical reform of the health care system. Never mind that the current system works fine for 75% of the people.

 I keep hearing about the 47 million people  who do not have health care insurance.  Of course twelve million of these are illegal aliens who shouldn’t qualify for any freebies from the government.  Another twelve million are people who wouldn’t buy or use health care insurance if their life depended on it. That reduces the forty seven million to twenty three million. In my book of arithmetic that translates into six and a half percent of the population that we are worried about. Using the laws of statistics, there is probably some error in these numbers. It might even be as high as six percent. If I have erred and the margin of error is on the minus side, the number of people who are uninsured is .5%. For that we want to create a government bureocracy that will bankrupt the country and take away our freedom.

What does all this have  to do with project management? The rule I learned was this; Good, Fast, Cheap–Pick Two.

The rule applies to making things or to designing health care systems.

1. If you want a good plan designed and implemented fast. It won’t be cheap.

Therin lies the national bankruptcy charge and the higher cost to the U.S. taxpayer, me and you. 

If you want a good plan that is cheap, It won’t be fast. 

 That is why we must slow this bill down. I know the guys in Washington  designing this reform are like  a room full of chimpanzees who are banging away on typewriters. Eventually the chimps will prepare the perfect plan.  Another way to look at this is you will stand in line for a long time to get service that is free. 

3. If you want a cheap plan that is fast, it won’t be good.

This is what Obama is directing lawmakers to give us.  Think about how many generations of Americans will be stuck with lousy health care service because the president wants it to be done fast, for what? I believe he wants it fast so we don’t have time to think about it. Kind of like passing a thousand page stimulus bill without knowing what is in it. I think health care warrants some careful planning and debate that will yield a system that is the best the country can devise, not one that is cobbled together by a bunch of self interest groups that have had pressure applied.

The thought of seeing my parents being advised by a government flunkie about  other options available than health care gives me the willies. I think if it comes to an mandated advisor coming to talk to me about options, I will give him a new one. i.e. the  option I have to excercise my second amendment right to defend myself from crazies.

It is sooo clear to me that the project management rule applies right on the money to our current situation.

President Obama wants a good plan, he wants it to be cheap, and he wants it fast. He can’t have it. He can only have two of the three.

We need to defeat the Health Care Reform Bill or break the rule of Good, Fast, Cheap.
