America is number one in health care cost per capita and 38th in quality care. Statistically, Americans spend more money on their health care than anything else but food. But the consumption of the health care dollar is predominately not paid for by the consumer. The middlemen, so to speak, make the forces of free enterprise moot. Consumers are bystanders in the relationship between purchase and quality because they do not directly pay for the service or products.This phenomenon is called Monopsony. The consumer is not the buyer. But the buyer is almost singly dominant. This is the reverse of Monopoly where the seller has the last say. This is not Microsoft at work. It is the Federal and State Medicare and Medicaid programs that buy upwards of 75% of all health care service products. Under the Obama Nation Government will be the purchaser of last resort for all Americans. Due to the onslaught of the “baby boomers” both the Government run health care and the insurance industry will bankrupt America unless they learn how to Win the Monopsony Game. This book defines the problems and proposes common sense solutions.

In 2006, seventy-seven million baby boomerspeople who worked hard all their liveswill begin to turn sixty. They have a right to expect the best of everything, but if the nursing home industry doesnt change dramatically and soon, they can only expect the worst. Today, nearly two million people are institutionalized in nursing homes, and millions more will face the possibility of one day joining the ranks of system victims.Every American has a personal, vested interest in shifting the paradigm of a struggling industry that is on the verge of collapse and that ends patients lives prematurely. Author and CPA Jerry L. Rhoads is a fellow of the American College of Health Care Administrators fellow, a licensed nursing home administrator, and the CEO of All-American Care, Inc. In Restore Elder Pride, he shares an educated insiders look at a system in crisisand how each person can be a part of the solution. He outlines the three prevailing principles that make this problem solvable: Embrace the restorative care model as a necessary transition between the current medical and social models. Use computer technology and case management to customize care plans for each patient in order to manage interventions for positive outcomes. Pay for performance based on outcomes attained.He calls his approach restorative care, and that involves changing the approach to elder care to embrace more humane and productive outcomes. By restoring function of the mind, body, emotion, and spirit, Rhoads believes that the industry can be saved.

The eighth wonder is the topic of the first poem and the theme for my first poetry book. I reveal in that poem what the eighth wonder is and its value to each person on earth. I dont want it revealed until they read that first poem, and hopefully, they will use that eighth wonder to find the other wonders of the world then read the rest of The Eleventh Wonder of the World, exercising their eighth wonder. Poetry is so personal it is hard to convince readers to take the time to feel the words, not just read them. The eighth wonder of the world presents something we all possess and dont realize its value. So for this third book to resonate with the buyer/reader, a love of poetry will initially be the reason it sells. After that, it will be the value to each reader as they capitalize on the eighth wonder we all possess.

Poetry is so personal. It is hard to convince readers to take the time to feel the words, not just read them. The Eighth Wonder of the World presents something we all possess and dont realize its value. So for this fifth book, The Twelfth Wonder of the World, to resonate with the buyer/reader, a love of poetry will initially be the reason it sells. After that, it will be the value to each reader as they capitalize on the wonders we all possess. The series of Wonders of the World poems are to relate all humans on Earth to a common denominator. The mind (eight wonder) and the soul (ninth wonder) are our human metaphysical commonalties, whereas the heart (tenth wonder) and the brain (the eleventh wonder) are physical commonalities to all of us as individuals. And finally, the spirit (twelfth wonder), our infinite energy, is what each of us are metaphysically, for the infinite trip from here to there, the final wonder.

The people of the United States of America, take back their sovereignty, and reclaim their right to have a say in the policies and conduct of the government.The Author offers a third party alternative for those enterprising Americans who pay for the public sector and do not currently have fair representation or input to the system that has caused many fiscal, social, and foreign-relation problems that face this nation of 313 million citizens.It is not entitlement reform that we need, but rather, government reform. Any tax reform should eliminate taxes on adjusted taxable income and replace it with a flat 5 percent annual capital assessment on individual and corporate net worth.The new entitlements are eroding the American work ethic and need to be replaced with real, private-sector jobs that create a true return on our gross national product. The American Dream is built on work ethic. The will to work in a free market is inherited from their forefathers but sustained by each of them.While our country is on the verge of bankruptcy Congress and State Legislatures enacted over 40,000 new laws in 2010 costing $250 billion borrowed dollars we dont have plus $700 billion in stimulus, $1.2 trillion for Obama Care and turned on the Federal Reserve printing presses for another $1 trillion for enforcement, unfunded public service pensions, salary raises for themselves and the bureaucrats. To make things worse the Federal and State Governments understate their deficits by using the cash basis of accounting. For example the Federal deficit is $123 trillion after factoring in accounts payable and pension debt. These pension systems are extraordinarily diverse in design, investment policy, and governance, and they face substantial challenges as the government-sector workforce ages and governments are asked to take on new and different tasks.The new entitlements need a major overhaul. To avoid depriving enterprise of much-needed capital to create jobs, we need to reduce American workers dependency on unemployment benefits, minimum wage, workers compensation, food stamps, welfare, and Obama Care. (Obama Care will use enforcement agencies for collecting taxes, and waste depleted tax revenues treating illness not pursuing wellness).

The foundation of democracy is the pursuit of the Greater Good. As a country, we pursue what is good for most of the people, most of the time. But that is not our approach for the care of our elderly. Of the 330 million people in America 77 million are baby boomers. In the next 10 years a staggering majority of them turned 60. Even though it would be for the Greater Good of America, there are no provisions for taking care of these aging lives.There are only time bombs:•Currently, there are 2.3 million falls per year among the elderly in nursing homes. There will be 80 million per year when the baby boomers come of nursing home age•On the average, baby boomers will have 4 to 5 chronic illnesses by the time they are 65…that equates to 350 million chronic conditions •77 million families will be impacted by the disabilities and chronic conditions imposed on them by aging baby boomers•77 million households are not equipped and never will be to handle chronic illnesses and dependent lives•$77 trillion dollars will be imposed annually on the budgets of State and Federal Governments to care for the aging boomers•The 46 million uninsured will become 100 million as the baby boomers become retirement age and unemployed•There are currently 1.7 million nursing home patients in 18,000 nursing homes and 4 million assisted living residents in 23,000 assisted living facilities. We will need 12 times as many nursing homes and 15 times as many assisted living facilities to handle the 77 million baby boomers in a supportive setting•2 million physicians, 2 million nurses, 7,500 hospitals and 750,000 other health professionals cannot handle the needs of 77 million aging baby boomers. But they do want their share of the health care dollars. Making the radical change from health maintenance to prevention and health preservation would serve the greater good and make more Medicare money available.On top of these time bombs we have 77 million high expectations. If we are expecting these 77 million baby boomers to just accept nursing homes and assisted living as they are…think again. They tend to be dependent on others for their approach to health care and generally are not staying healthy; nor are they schooled on preserving their health and do not pay more for poor health. Compounding this, their health care providers are not schooled in detecting cause or in pursuing measurable outcomes. But they are paid regardless of results
