    We will, once this is being utilized by the "people", need these doctors sooner than later, or grab a ticket and wait for them to call your number.

    If the insurance mandate created by conservatives as an alternative to UHC doesn't work then there will be no alternative left but to upgrade to UHC like the rest of the industrialized world.

    And ultimately it will hopefully provide a gigantic database that the medical community can use to study treatments and outcomes, thus improving health care and lowering costs.
    like the VA implemented this several years ago.Anyplace in the country/world?,your medical record instantly.

    No, based on your many posts I doubt you ever held an executive position at a major corporation, or have seen upclose how they base decisions. I am not using a worst case scenario. Look to studies done by companies like McKinsey and see how many people they expect to be kicked off employer based plans.

    But then again, I try to see things as they may be and not rosy glasses of a hard boiled partisan.

    Why exactly is it a bad thing if people get kicked off of employer-based plans and have to purchase an individual plan instead? Employer-based plans are a big part of the problem.

    I can't. This is important.

    Links, please.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    I think you know about this study but feel compelled to push a partisan agenda regardless of facts.

    You didn't link a study there either.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
