Abstract

Americans enjoy the best medical care in the history of the world, but our system is being destroyed by government regulation, by the socialist principles embodied in the Medicare and Medicaid systems, and by the liberal social policies our society has followed over the last half century: that is the theme of Code Blue: Health Care in Crisis, by Dr Edward R. Annis, past president of both the American Medical Association (AMA) and the World Medical Association, and one of America's most distinguished physicians. He tells us what the "liberal press" has consistently hidden: that the problem is government, not health care, that all of the problems in health care have a "made in Washington" label, and that the current health care "crisis" is simply a crisis in government mismanagement. Unfortunately, most Americans, including many of our leaders in organized medicine, are not aware of this.
