    This is demonstrably false, as noted.
    So... you're either lying, or you do not know any better.
    The wars in Iraq and Afgh are the 3rd largest cause of the deficits and increase in the debt

    The money to make good on those IOUs can only come from the general fund or borrowing; either will increase the deficit.
    No, raising the FICA cap is another way. Your response completely ignored the point in the post it responded to

    of course, americans with private insurance enjoyed significantly better results---after controlling for age, gender, geography, race, income and 30 comorbid conditions, that is

    From 2003-2007, 893,658 major surgical operations were evaluated using the Nationwide Inpatient Sample (NIS) database: lung resection, esophagectomy, colectomy, pancreatectomy, gastrectomy, abdominal aortic aneurysm repair, hip replacement, and coronary artery bypass. Patients were stratified by primary payer status: Medicare (n=491,829), Medicaid (n=40,259), Private Insurance (n=337,535), and Uninsured (n=24,035).

    Importantly, after controlling for age, gender, income, geographic region, operation, and 30 comorbid conditions, Medicaid payer status was associated with the longest length of stay and highest total costs. In addition, Medicaid and Uninsured payer status independently conferred the highest adjusted risks of mortality.

    I find that most of his posts have nothing to do with the subject at hand. I ignore the distracting posts

    So you obviously agree with Elmendorf when he says that repealing ACA would INCREASE the federal deficit by $145 billion over 10 years and by a cost equal to .5% of GDP in the next 10 years? Interesting.

The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
