    Are you assuming that the cost of going to the ER will be the same as going to a primary care Dr.?

    Yes, you are.

    There is only one thing I assume relating to your posts, but I'd get infracted for posting it....

    Better yet, how much of aggregate health care expenditure is currently funded by tax dollars?
    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.

    Another conservative that can't argue the point but wants to engage in ad hominems.

    Hint: Those who had no insurance and were using the ER for primary care will have lower medical costs.

    The U.S. and the majority of the developed world are in a period of extreme economic healing. The effects of a "balance-sheet recession" can last for more than a decade. As the graph depicts, the ratio between the U.S. Federal Reserve balance and the broad money supply has increased dramatically and persists to this day.



    It is not about who is President.... To ignore the lasting psychological impact of extreme losses in wealth while constantly blathering on about the President accomplishes zero. The U.S. is primarily a market economy (meaning the president is not responsible for private sector management decisions).
    The one thing you and others never factor in are the effects of quality positive leadership on the economy and personal behavior. Obama has shown absolutely no leadership thus the reason for the very slow recovery. compare his leadership style to Reagan and you will understand the difference. Reagan believed in the American people, Obama believes that govt. is the answer. The govt. is never the answer on economic issues other than if you want negative results. The way to recovery is by promoting the private sector not demonizing it. You don't put roadblocks in the way and then blame the slow recovery on a "balanced sheet" recession

    And yet you keep bringing this up, and I asked you to provide any objective measure to support it....nothing is shown.

    Reagan spent his way out with massive military buildup, tripling the debt....we just went over this point.

    Don't bother with facts, reasoning and logic to those who are not interested in it. Republicans/conservatives just want to bash Obama, regardless of how accurate their statements are.

    I posted the chart showing govt. expenditures and tax revenue during the Reagan term. Further since I lived and worked during both the Reagan term and the Obama term I speak from experience. The fact will always be that the American people spending their own money will generate the job creation and economic growth for a prosperous economy. Not only did GDP double, but tax revenue increased by about 60% with those tax cuts including significant growth in income tax revenue. No liberal in this thread has explained how that happened.

    The objective measure comes from bea.gov. as well as personal experience that shows personal behavior is never accurately explained by textbooks.

    Right economic results from the Bureau of Economic Analysis, Bureau of Labor Statistics, and the U.S. Treasury are irrelevant in today's world of American Idol where rhetoric and symbolism trump actual results. Please explain what facts I have posted that are wrong or that you refute?
