Insurance Companies are as Efficient as Federal Agencies

July 14, 2017

Insurance Companies own Politicians in DC and your state Legislature!

In addition to TV commercials and political contributions, they can’t count beans unless they have Palatial Offices in Marble Skyscrapers.  The first building to be called the tallest building in the world was an Insurance Company Building shown above.  Then, the third building to earn that title was another Insurance Company Building.

The Metropolitan Life Insurance Company Building in New York City became the fifth building to become the world’s tallest.  It is shown above and had 50 floors.  I visited that building in 1961 during my high school senior trip.  It was amazing watching banks of computers with spools of magnetic tape spinning around.

The MetLife Computer was probably a Univac with the capabilities of my smartphone but with a starting price of $7 million.

When I had Blue Cross I received piles of totally unnecessary mail from them. My cost for Blue Cross Healthcare Insurance was almost nothing when I first worked for the Federal Government in 1978. By the time I retired in 1996, Blue Cross was bloated and inefficient like ANY Agency in Federal or State Government.

This is a Blue Cross Building that was the Pennsylvania State Headquarters.  It only had 45 floors but every state has something similar.  I don’t know if this is still in use or if they needed a taller skyscraper?

The way Insurance Companies have a low Profit Margin is by lavish spending, exorbitant salaries and wasting money. Why have a meeting in the office when you can have a meeting on the French Riviera?

Insurance company bean counters make more than surgeons and state CEOs make millions.

If Walmart efficiency and management was present in the Insurance Industry, the Healthcare Crisis would be solved almost overnight!

In my 2007 book, TOP GUN MANAGEMENT, I wrote about waste and inefficiency. I remember when the Massachusetts Blue Cross CEO got a huge multi million dollar raise after losing a large percentage of customers.

Government Agencies and Insurance Companies have no incentive to be cost efficient. The Government simply raises taxes and Insurance Companies simply raises rates when funds are needed.  Are you able to do that in your household?

My last year with the Government I had a six figure surplus in civilian pay. I could have hired temporary or permanent employees or converted the surplus to another budget category.

I had a surplus because I didn’t hire employees I didn’t need or buy wall paintings and a Louis XIV desk for my office.

I turned the excess funds back to the Government. Do you think they went to pay down the National Debt or to fix broken combat aircraft?

They went to a typical Government Director who easily blew the funds.

Who do you think the Government had more respect for, the Director who blew the money or me?  You guessed it!

The famous government leaders you see on TV all the time, for the most part, never met a payroll or worried about paying bills.  They are either bureaucrats or politicians.  Most could not run a lemonade stand.  Couple the inefficiencies in both the insurance industry and the government with fraud, waste and abuse and you have the recipe for disaster.  Not a disaster for the government or the insurance company but a disaster for the taxpayers and subscribers.

Who polices the government and the insurance industry?  Usually the fox guards the hen house.  The government has a completely fraudulent watchdog system called the Inspector General System.  The IG’s almost never substantiate wrong doing but they come down hard on whistleblowers.  The IG works for the agency or military commander, they are not independent.  They are very careful not to embarrass their boss.

States have Insurance Commissioners who are no match for clever insurance executives.  Especially since too many sorry politicians get elected on the backs of insurance lobbyists who scratch their backs.

I think most of the people reading this fully understand why President Trump calls it the Swamp.  President Reagan said government is not the solution to the problem, government is the problem.  The same could be said for the insurance industry as it now functions.

If your Politician will get behind President Donald Trump, America has a chance.  It is unlikely that your politician will kill the insurance company that lays the golden egg.

If your Politician sticks with the Insurance and Hospital Lobbies, we are toast.

Thank You for our Freedom Poland

July 6, 2017

With President Trump’s visit to Poland, maybe it’s time I told you about what Poland means to America. Since public schools won’t tell you, it’s up to old Gene McVay to step up.

General George Washington would have been killed during the Revolutionary War if it were not for Casimir Pulaski who was born in Winiary, some 40 miles south of Warsaw in 1745. The story of how a Polish boy became the father of the American Cavalry might interest you?

Pulaski’s father, Joseph, was the owner of eight villages and towns as well as over one hundred farms with businesses across the entire country. The Pulaski family was Catholic. Sometimes Joseph was gone for weeks at a time. The sight of his father’s carriage rolling toward home always brought Casimir galloping on horseback as fast as he could to meet his father. At that time, the threat to villages was the Cossacks who were pirates on horseback. They were swooping down from Russia and raiding small villages.

As Casimir grew older, he asked his father why the Polish Army couldn’t stop the evil Cossacks.

The answer was simple, the Polish Army had become too weak.

Pulaski became one of the leading military commanders for the Bar Confederation and fought against Russian domination of the Commonwealth. When this uprising failed, he was driven into exile. Following a recommendation by Benjamin Franklin, Pulaski immigrated to North America to help in the cause of the American Revolutionary War.

Upon arrival in America, Pulaski wrote this in a letter to General Washington, “I came here, where freedom is being defended, to serve it, and to live or die for it.”

Pulaski met with Washington in his headquarters in Neshaminy Falls, outside of Philadelphia and showed off his riding skills. He also argued for the superiority of cavalry over infantry. Because Washington was unable to grant him an officer rank, Pulaski spent the next few months traveling between General Washington and the United States Congress in Philadelphia, awaiting his appointment.

His first military engagement against the British occurred before he received a commission, on September 11, 1777, at the Battle of Brandywine. When the Continental Army troops began to yield, he reconnoitered with Washington’s bodyguards of about 30 men, and reported that the enemy was endeavoring to cut off the line of retreat. Washington ordered him to collect, as many as possible, the scattered troops who came his way, and employ them according to his discretion to secure the retreat of the army.

His subsequent charge averted a disastrous defeat of the Continental Army, earning him fame in America and saving the life of George Washington. As a result, on September 15, 1777, on the orders of Congress, Washington made Pulaski a brigadier general in the Continental Army. At that point, the cavalry was only a few hundred men strong organized into four regiments. These men were scattered among numerous infantry formations, and used primarily for scouting duties. Pulaski immediately began work on reforming the cavalry, and wrote the first regulations for the formation.

General Pulaski distinguished himself throughout the revolution and created the Pulaski Cavalry Legion while reforming the American cavalry as a whole. At the Battle of Savannah, while leading a daring charge against British forces, he was gravely wounded, and died shortly thereafter.

Pulaski has been remembered as a hero who fought for independence and freedom both in Poland and in the United States. Numerous places and events are named in his honor, and he is commemorated by many works of art. Pulaski is one of only eight people to be awarded honorary United States citizenship. He never married and had no descendants.

The Winiary mansion where Pulaski was born was designed by Vincent Augustine Locci and now serves as the Pulaski Museum.

The Polish Museum of America in Chicago is the crown jewel of the Polish-American community and one of the oldest and largest ethnic museums in the United States.

What does America owe to Generals Pulaski and Lafayette? Just our Freedom, that’s all. I have no doubt that America would have lost the Revolutionary war without them.

The Gene McVay Illegal Immigration Solution

February 28, 2017

The trillion dollar problem must be solved if America is to survive longer than a few short years.

iicc

It is impossible to get a figure on the totality of the impact of illegal immigration in America. My best guess is more than one trillion dollars a year.

Since Democrats and sanctuary cities are the major enablers of the flood of humanity living off of hard working taxpayers, the trillion dollars should come from them.

Here are my recommendations:
25% Sanctuary City tax
25% Sanctuary State tax
60% Motion Picture tax
60% Actor & Entainer tax
60% Hedge Fund tax
60% News Anchor tax

iic

Expand the property confiscation program to include:
■Mayors and City Directors of Sanctuary Cities.
■County Executives of Sanctuary Counties
■Governors and Legislators of Sanctuary States.
■Judges who have perpetuated and enabled illegal immigration.
■All persons who have harbored or transported illegal immigrants.
■Businesses and Companies that employ illegal immigrants.
■Illegal immigrants who have registered to vote or who are in possession of fraudulent Social Security or Immigration Documents
■Federal employees who have issued Social Security or Immigration Documents to illegal immigrants
■Federal, State and local officials who release illegal immigrants without due process
■Illegal Immigrants who fraudulently receive any government assistance
■Any government official or employee who enables or aids illegal immigration

Confiscated property to be sold at auction with proceeds going toward national defense, Veterans benefits, infrastructure and social security.

To facilitate this seamlessly and to get government working again, the law that permitted the failed government program of collective bargaining for government employees must end. Our government has never had child labor, poor working conditions, poor pay, black lung or poor benefits. Unions bankrupted the Post Office before the government wide takeover. Bureaucrats negotiate with bureaucrats to waste tax dollars.

The hungry kid who steals from a convenience store will surely be met with justice. Presidential Candidates, government employees and billionaire anarchists seem to operate above the law. Laws must allow government employees to be fired as easily as a grocery store manager. Fire them on the spot and take their keys. Use the VA system for appeals. My VA claim and appeal is 7 years old.

If we are going to have a legitimate country, our laws must apply to every single person.

Lawless Mayors, Judges and politicians will quickly stop thumbing their noses at our Constitution and laws and America will become solvent in the process.
