Politics & America’s Healthcare

Red Kool Aid and Blue Kool Aid: An Educational Read That Explains Why Politics Should Not Be Involved In America’s Healthcare

ObamaCare – is it a right or a privilege?   Leonard Zwelling, MD, sheds light on little-known details of perhaps one of the most talked-about enacted policies of President Obama’s term in office in his book, Red Kool Aid and Blue Kool Aid:  How Partisan Politics and Greed Undermined ObamaCare.

Red Kool Aid and Blue Kool Aid is the dizzying memoir of Dr. Zwelling’s experience on Capitol Hill when he was a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation health policy fellow.  Count on readers to understand the Big Money-Big Politics dealings that lead up to gaining approval for ObamaCare.

“There’s the Constitution and then there’s reality,” say Dr. Zwelling.  “ObamaCare is a prime example of how Congress can undermine the Constitution because of partisan interests or the effectiveness of lobbyists.”

Richard Andrassy, Amazon.com reviewer: “This is the educational experience of an exceptionally well trained and respected physician thrown into the “reality” of Washington politics. As physicians, we try to go from the large differential diagnosis to the most likely cause as fast as possible. Not true in Law or Politics. I learned a lot about the games in Washington by reading this book. I think it will be eye opening to many physicians. We aren’t considered big players in Washington and we are surely not organized within our own ranks. This book is not only educational, but easy to read and keeps your attention. Whether you are Red or Blue or “in-between,” you will enjoy the candid report of a physician’s year on the Hill.  Entertaining, enlightening and exasperating.”
