“The hospital can get me the operation now?” Charmaine asked.
“Sure,” I said. “Where do you think you are, England?”
Charmaine’s gall bladder removal was uneventful and, more important, immediate. There was no rationing of health care — which we will get under an ObamaNation Health Plan.
That was exactly one week ago — the latest surgical techniques have made recovery times shorter, less painful and less expensive. Good ol’ American know-how.
Alert Readers will recall that Your Business Blogger(R) ran a number of medical device start up companies where we risked investors’ investments to lower a patient’s hospital ‘length of stay’ or LOS.
And the products and services made the world a better place as we improved patient care in a cost effective manner.
We assumed a risk in hope of a big payday, a big reward. Obama will kill this golden goose of innovative entrepreneurship.
Charmaine will be discussing the future on The Live Desk panel this afternoon. The other panelists will be Doug Schoen and Alex Burns.
The topics will be:
1) Obama’s Administration – a recreation of the Clinton Administration? What’s in store for Obama and his new team? and
2) A discussion on how Sarah Palin handled the campaign.

Background at the jump, Obama, Candidate of Change, Looks to Old Hands from Clinton Era By Catherine Dodge and Kristin Jensen,
Nov. 10 (Bloomberg) — Barack Obama, elected president as an agent of change, is building his new team with old hands from the Clinton administration.
His first appointment, chief of staff, went to Rahm Emanuel, an Illinois representative and veteran of the last Democratic White House. Leading Obama’s transition team is John Podesta, who was President Bill Clinton’s chief of staff.
