Fourth, we need means testing. Similar to the case for Social Security reform, if a person - myself included - has amassed a certain amount of assets, he should be required to pay for his own health care.

Fifth, personal health care savings accounts funded over a lifetime would provide future retirees with a health care nest egg to draw upon. Funding one’s own health care - what a novel concept.

The bottom line is that our population is aging and aging quickly, which is requiring more taxpayer-subsidized health care that already is on the fast track to bankruptcy. In order to survive, America needs more health care choices, more freedom and more responsibility for our own health. This will drive down costs, not increase costs, which is the current suicidal, Fedzilla model.

America has a health care crisis. It is a crisis that was put in motion by Fedzilla in 1965 and is on a course to kill the very patients Medicare was supposed to help: Americans.

Health care lesson No. 1: Never surrender your freedom or personal responsibility to Fedzilla unless you have a death wish for America.
