If employers are NOT providers who is ?
And I'm not going to "get use" to a plan that will not work and will not be implemented.
i support doing a thorough study of what every other first world country is doing, picking the best parts of each system, and fixing our health care to more closely resemble other systems with better outcomes and greater efficiency.
My world view? The people who would be running the UHC system would be nonpolitical permanent types that do not fly around on helicopters etc. The POTUS and Congress types will be there anyway. Try not to attack me, we are not discussing my world view. By the way, what does Obama's golf game have to do with healthcare? Talking points?
God Bless the Marine Corps.
Just imagine the economic power that could be released if employers didn't have to shell out thousands of dollars on each employee for health care, if patients had an incentive to shop around, and if providers didn't have to have an army of people whose expertise is in how to get government and private insurance to pay. Imagine a United States paying out 7% of its gdp instead of 17% for health care. Imagine a health care system with costs that rose only as much as inflation.
Imagine a functioning government that could bring such a thing about.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
I'm waiting for the insurance industry collapse. We can point fingers to the left or to the right, or both ways. Either way, it doesn't matter. With or without Obamacare, the insurance industry is still going to fail, just like the bank industry, auto industry, and housing industry. It's only a matter of time.
Scientific fact: If you took all of the veins from your body and laid them end to end, you would die.
