They complain bitterly about this every time Medicare comes out with a tighter pricing schedule, because the insurance companies follow shortly thereafter and negotiate similar prices.

    The medical market of the past 25 years is unsustainable and will be swept away. Indeed, more and more hospitals are forming sister organizations to hire doctors as employees (hospitals are barred from directly hiring doctors), so the number of doctors who will be in private practice is expected to plummet. In the future most doctors will likely be employees, not private practitioners. Indeed, I suspect that this trend is somehow behind the garbled reporting of the OP.
    I have a friend who believes something similar.

    He suggests the FedGov training and employing all doctors, nurses and aids. Building the medical schools and the hospitals, paying everyone set amount, etc... Sounds like pure Socialism to me.

    Sounds like a good medical system to me, unlike our current one, which is totally dysfunctional.

    Having experienced a recent hospital stay, it's hard for me to argue.

    If we lose our great insurance, I can't imagine what that experience will be like.

    50 million Americans already know - the system doesn't insure them, unless they get so sick that they can walk into an ER, which is the most expensive inefficient way to treat public health ever invented.

    Psst.... A higher percentage of INSURED people actually use the ER. And you can expect those expensive, inefficient visits to actually go up under ACA.

    Psst: they use it for it's intended purpose: emergency care. The uninsured don't go to doctors, so minor health problems become big ones and they wind up in ER.

    That's about as stupid as Sarah Palin's talking points on quantum mechanics.

    Nevermind that Costa Rica has single payer health coverage.

    No worries though. Like usual this was just another Limbaugh lie unfortunately.

    Much easier it say stupid **** than do stupid ****. I would put much stock in Talk. Maggie's 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.

    What else shall happen just to stop some of your money going towards helping your fellow Americans in desperate medical aid. Why is it such a big deal not to be as selfish over there?

    Selfish?

    Taking money from some people to give to other people is theft... It's stealing... Americans give more to charity and do more for those less fortunate than any other people in the world, so I don't want to hear "selfish" from you or anyone else.
