    Sue Lowden Stands by Chicken Health Care Barter Plan

    Sue Lowden Stands by Chicken Health Care Barter Plan - Political Hotsheet - CBS News

    Sue Lowden Stands by Chicken Health Care Barter Plan

    Sue Lowden, a Republican Senate hopeful in Nevada, has been widely mocked for earlier this week stating that, "before we all started having health care, in the olden days our grandparents, they would bring a chicken to the doctor, they would say I'll paint your house."

    WTF does this broad think that she is living in the 18th century ?

    Is this going to be the Republican health financing plan ? Chickens ??

    The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee subsequently set up a "Chickens for Checkups" website offering a fake form letter in which people could offer items in exchange for health care - 10 chickens for rickets treatment, five sets of overalls for "the vapors," etc.
    Truth am stranger than fiction !!!

    Re: Sue Lowden Stands by Chicken Health Care Barter Plan

    I think here that late next next month I go for my anual physical. So I am going see if the wild blackberries that I did not have bulldozed when I added on to the house are ready. I am fixin to pick me a mess o' them and bring them with me when I go see Doctor Bob and say hey Doc Bob forget about my 'surance you just take these bags of blackberries and we can call this even.

    Wonder if I cann pay Quest in dandeline wine for the blood test that Doctor Bob insists that I get ?

    I believe your missing the point, from how I see it, Lowden favors patients and doctors being able to bargain over costs.

    Could you imagine the chaos on talk radio, bashing obama if he suggested that trying to barter chickens for healthcare was his plan to reform healthcare?

    He got bashed for suggesting that properly inflating yor tires will help your gas mileage...

    Not really equitable bargaining positions. People need a doctor more than a doctor needs any individual patient.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    I honestly don't have much a problem with people bartering, its the fact that she considers it a solution to healthcare problems that bothers me. This should probably be merged with the similar thread in the elections forum as well.

    Those patients carry dollars, that's the point of her comment.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Actually this was clarified. She actually meant barter, not haggle.

    (besides, people can already bargain with their doctor and do it all the time)
