Mitt Romney makes the case for a “mighty” U.S. military

Mitt Romney speakerWriting in the Washington Post, Mitt Romey, 2012 US Presidential Candidate, argues that all reasons put forward for the decimation of the U.S. military defence are wrong, and that as “Russia invades, China bullies, Iran spins centrifuges, [and] the Islamic State threatens” there is still need for a mighty U.S. military.

For example, although some people believe that a multipolar world is preferable to one led by a strong United States, Romney counters by saying that the world would not see peace if these other pole nations were China, Russia and Iran. This is because “ultimately, one would seek to conquer the others, unleashing world war.”

Other arguments contend that if the United States withdrew its military strength from the world it would be left alone. However, Romney argues that the “history of the 20th century teaches that power-hungry tyrants ultimately feast on the appeasers.” Moreover, he believes that the U.S. “economy would be devastated by the disruption of trade routes, the turmoil in global markets and the tumult of conflict across the world.”

Romney puts forward that the real reason for shrinking the U.S. military is that “politicians, and many of the people who elect them, want to keep up spending here at home.” As the turbulent times set to continue, and with freedom and peace in the balance, he believes that the “Washington politicians are poised to make a historic decision.”

Netflix releases “Mitt” – a powerful documentary on Mitt Romney’s election race

Mitt Romney, business leader and Republican Presidential candidate for the 2012 US elections, is due to premier in his first Netflix documentary – Mitt – released later this week.

Mitt is a rare and intimate account of one man’s quest for the presidency, which follows the former Presidential candidate from Christmas 2006 to his initial run to become the Republican nominee in 2008, and through his Presidential concession speech in 2012.

Director Greg Whiteley (“New York Doll,” “Resolved”) was given a remarkable degree of access to the candidate for over six years, travelling alongside the campaign through interactions with potential voters, preparations for the debates, personal moments with his family and concluding with final presidential election night results.

Lanhee Chen talks fixing Doctors’ pay and improving health

The former Policy Director for Governor Mitt Romney’s Presidential campaign 2012, Lanhee Chen is a fellow at the Hoover Institution and Stanford University. His latest column for Bloomberg, ‘Fix doctors’ pay and improve health too’ is well worth a read on the US medical care system.

Lanhee opens his discussion highlighting that the current fee-for-service system is unsustainable – one of the few points that Medicare, Republicans and Democrats all agree on. Although the SGR have promised cuts in physician fees since 2002, most years Congress have postponed these.

This is a problem which Lanhee urges Congress to address quickly, he advocates replacing the SGR with an improved physician payment system. He suggests that a not fee-for-service system would reward quality of care rather than quantity and the move from SGR would be a “golden opportunity for better data collection”.

Lanhee acknowledges how expensive this reform would be – an estimated $138 billion, yet he firmly believes it is necessary to “replace the flawed payment system for doctors” and would be the first stage in strengthening Medicare for future generations.
