    Re: Supreme Court health care arguments under way

    From the day 2 arguements that I've been reading...

    Justice Scalia:
    By the way, I don't agree with you that the relevant market here is health care. You're not regulating health care. You're regulating insurance. It's the insurance market that you're addressing and you're saying that some people who are not in it must be in it, and that's - - that's different from regulating in any manner commerce that already exists out there.
    I so agree. Insurance IS its own market seperate from health care. To use an example that others have tried to use...improperly mind you...car insurance. (yeah...couldn't help but throw that in your faces) There is also house insurance, fire insurance etc etc.
    I have an answer for everything...you may not like the answer or it may not satisfy your curiosity..but it will still be an answer. ~ Kal'Stang

    My mind and my heart are saying I'm in my twenties. My body is pointing at my mind and heart and laughing its ass off. ~ Kal'Stang

    It's been said a few times, but the usual suspects keep equating the two.

    Not hard. Put a limit on how many licenses are issued per year.

    Kind of nice to hear someone in authority say the same thing huh?

    (by authority I'm talking about someone that can actually decide on this issue )

    I'm glad it's in the mix, yes.

    Increase the limit. Currently from what I have heard they have a limit on how many licenses they issue. No I have no proof of it but it wouldn't surprise me. I have heard of waiting lists to get licenses.

    This was very interesting for the website article you posted - "France imposed American-style "co-pays" on patients to try to throttle back prescription-drug costs and forced state hospitals to crack down on expenses. "A hospital doesn't need to be money-losing to provide good-quality treatment," President Nicolas Sarkozy thundered in a recent speech to doctors."

    I don't think that's so.
