John Featherman on Health Care

2000 Libertarian Challenger for Senate (PA)


Combine with free market to cover everyone

Everyone should have the right to get health care, but government is not solely responsible, nor should it be. The combination of the free market and the proper restraints from the HMOs, doctors and the public to control costs is in order.

Cap on lawsuit damages lowers healthcare cost

Malpractice insurance rates must be lowered through a combination of caps on lawsuits, caps on awards, caps on fees and removal of bad practitioners from the insurance pool - and make them personally liable if they screw up. Make doctors stop over-prescribing and over-testing just because they're afraid of being sued -- and lower the cost of health care for everyone in the process!

Supports right to die with dignity

I favor personal choice and advanced directives being honored. I support the right to die with dignity. If you have any questions about dying with dignity, then contact your local hospice. I am against government meddling in private family matters, such as the Terri Schiavo case.
