    Sixty. One must learn to be flexible. What term would you use to describe someone in the context of part black and part white? If it sounds better I will use it.

    That's is largely correct.

    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.

    AP has already corrected you. It seems you need to do the research.

    If medical facilities would treat patients at the rate insurance companies paid, many would purchase a catastrophic policy and pay for many visits out of pocket...

    Not enough. Too many would be unable to do that.

    Then maybe they should find a means to do so, but the model of medical facilities setting prices at an absurd rate is certainly not working efficiently...

    Not really possible without Armageddon. Medicine is too big, and no one s going backwards. If Conservative thinks doctors hate losing money under this latest reform, watch the revolt under what you propose.

    Have you ever looked at a major medical bill to see the difference between what was charged and what the negotiated payment was?
