    Health care is what? 16% of the total US economy? You can do the math.
    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.

    I don't give a flying **** about the CBO. I'd just LOVE for some person who kept touting the CBO's accuracy come on and claim they're wrong when the CBO states numbers they don't agree with.

    Nope. You have it wrong. I don't recall arguing 100% accuracy, but that their numbers are accepted. Like I said before, my weather man is often inaccurate, but he gives me the best prediction of the weather coming. Beats just guessing or talking ****.

    It will never really be fixed. The "fix" will mostly consist of printing more money.

    I suppose if you consider math to be opinion, then yes it is. If you figure that with 54 billion savings, and the total health care cost, you can figure the percentages, then not so much opinion.

    The study is based on a survey believed to be the first of its kind that was completed by more than 900 physicians in Massachusetts. It asked about their use of seven tests and procedures: plain film X-rays, CT scans, magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasounds, laboratory testing, specialty referrals and consultations, and hospital admissions.

    About 83 percent reported practicing defensive medicine, with an average of between 18 percent and 28 percent of tests, procedures, referrals, and consultations and 13 percent of hospitalizations ordered for defensive reasons.

    Such practices were estimated to cost a minimum of $1.4 billion per year in Massachusetts.
    UConn Advance - February 23, 2009 - Study shows defensive medicine widespread

    Since Massachusetts has about 2% of the US population, total spent on defensive medicine to combat malpractice suits in the entire country would be well over 54 billion dollars. This study does not count the cost of malpractice insurance, lawyer's fees, court costs, etc.
