“Run from Government Healthcare,” Advises Internist


“The ‘Affordable Healthcare Act’ is neither affordable, nor healthcare,” says Dr. Richard Ruhling, a retired board-certified internist who taught at Loma Linda University. He cites: “IRS estimates for the cheapest family package at $20,000 per year, and that doesn’t cover all the costs.”

Ruhling says it’s not healthcare--it’s medical care, a leading cause of illness, disability and death. He claims medical care and healthcare are inversely related--“the more pills we take, the worse our health gets from adverse side effects because drugs are chemicals that become toxic in the body.”

The Western Journal of Medicine reported 199,000 outpatient deaths from Rx drugs, estimating 116 million patients saw a doctor for it, 8 million admissions to the hospital and 3 million admissions to long-term care (messed up for life, reported June, 2000).

“Big gov wants to control medical care and because there’s too much money in it. People want to eat, drink, smoke and abuse themselves. These are factors in high cost of hospitalization.” Ruhling asks: “If millions want to live that way, why should I be taxed to pay their medical bills? Nowhere does the Constitution provide for government ‘healthcare.’ Trusting the government on this won’t be good.”

Dr. Marcia Angell, former editor of the New England Journal of Medicine, authored a book, “The Truth About the Drug Companies: How They Deceive Us”. She told 60 Minutes (1990’s) that pharma spends $400 million a year on congressional reelection campaigns. Ruhling visited senate offices to discuss Rx drugs and a senator told him, “You are wasting your time…They own us.”

Ruhling’s website at shows Clinton’s cardiologist, Esselstyn, supporting heart disease as reversible. Ruhling claims, high blood pressure, diabetes and other medical problems are also reversible if we know how to cooperate with the body.
