The Public Healthcare Debt Bomb

Based on the active willingness by government officials to lie to the public through “acts of commission” or “acts of omission,” I have no faith in anything a government official tells the public based on past actions of politicians who violated OPEN GOVERNMENT LAWS to meet in secret session and give themselves massive retroactive pay raises.

That one incident alone is why we as citizens need to go to these meetings to see what politicians are planning to do with our money. In the immortal words of President Ronald Reagan, we as citizens must “trust, but verify!”
Yes, I was arrested at the Hyatt for attending a meeting paid for by taxpayers.

As most of you know I have been digging into several stories about the Public Healthcare System on Guam that have been in the news lately that I am very concerned about, and you should be too because you are going to be paying a lot of money for next to no improvement in the delivery of healthcare on this island.

This sorry saga all began for me after Michael San Nicolas’s State of the Congress Address, when Governor Lou Leon Guerrero, in an interview with KUAM, made statements about progress for a new GMH at Eagle’s Field I did not believe to be true. So following President Reagan’s advice, I began requesting documents from Guam Memorial Hospital Authority (GMH), the Department of Administration (DOA), and the Guam Economic Development Authority (GEDA) under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). I ended up having to go to court to have a judge issue the Governor an order to comply with the very Guam Laws she took an oath to follow when she was sworn into office, to release public documents on her plans to shift public assets and spend public funds in a way that will have a dramatic impact on the future healthcare service delivery on the island of Guam.

The documents that were finally released proved to me the Governor lied when she made statements to KUAM that the public planning meetings involving stakeholders had already taken place, that they had met with the medical professional, and they already have a plan, proved not to be true based on review of all the documents finally released to me.

The documents I reviewed also raised so many red flags about what appears to be an effort to use the public healthcare system as an ATM machine for politically well-connected insiders, to the detriment of the people of Guam.

The $300 million ARP funds sitting in the Bank of Guam were meant to be used to help our island recover from the pandemic driven economic collapse, not to be used as a down payment a vanity building project the Governor can put her name and face on like she did with the Guam Public Library.
