    I have no idea what you could or couldn't have learned. You could learn what the bill actually says by reading it.

    Yes it is. No one goes to the emergency room to get birth control pills just like nobody goes to the emergency room to get blood pressure medication.

    So what changes in the system again regarding the uninsured, beside paying more for their emergency care?

    Here's a hint, pretty much everything that you could have learned by reading it.

    I didn't say I agreed with you, I said your posts were intelligent.

    I can appreciate when someone takes time and thought to put together a good post, regardless of the subject matter or lean.
    Building block or stumbling block.... choose.

    Sigh...

    Of course no ones going to the emergency room for blood pressure medication, that's the entire point of it. Preventative care is cheaper than emergency room care. I've put it as simply as possible. I can't help you out beyond that.

    That was your example not mine. I can't help it if you don't even remember what you post.

    And your response was "nobody goes to the emergency room to get blood pressure medication", which shows me that you don't even understand the argument. High blood pressure can cause a stroke. Or an aneurysm. Compare the cost of subsidizing someone's health insurance which aides them in going to the doctor more often, and lets them catch things like high blood pressure, and provides them reasonable access to blood pressure medication vs. the cost of them being ignorant of their condition and having an aneurism. Or a stroke. Even you can figure out which is cheaper. Hope fully. But you're prolly still scratching your head saying noone goes to the emergency room for blood pressure medication.

    Nonsense. The sky will not fall. More will likely get more than were.

    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.
