Why is the US Health Care System Failing?Â - Incompetent Management at DHHS...
- Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

Nobody even tries to hide the fact that the US Health Care System is broken beyond repair. There is a lot of finger-pointing going on, as well there should be. The US health care system costs too much, it's the top three killers of Americans, and Americans don't trust it. It simply doesn't work.
Who's fault is this? Blame lies solidly with the management of the US Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS). Current management is incapable of dealing with health care problems. It has set up a US Health Care system that doesn't work, and has no chance of ever working.
Why is this happening? Because Congress gave DHHS authority over the "structure" of US Health Care and DHHS management can't see "the big picture". Every day we sink deeper into the hole.
When you are incapable of identifying the problem - you cannot provide solution. DHHS management has been told, repeatedly, what the problem is. They just don't get it.
We can solve America's health problems quickly if we just do a house cleaning at the top of DHHS. It was Laurence J. Peter, in his book "The Peter Principle" that pointed out to all of us that "in a hierarchy everyone rises to their level of incompetency." That's clearly obvious at DHHS.
The Defective DHHS System:
Below, I've outlined the BIGGEST reason why US health care is out of control - DHHS management's inability to see what's going on. In further articles I'll outline other important reasons - but none as important as this.
