But here medical is (mostly) free - Doctors are supposed to "bulk bill" for the patients they see but Doctors being doctors tend to charge more than medicare repays. The system often DOES work out
And those people who are just turning up because of social/psychological reasons are referred to those who CAN help - hopefully - unfortunately it does not always happen that way though
It truly is a bell curve - one end are the ones who almost live in a hospital the other end those who will not go to hospital if their arms fell off and most people are in the middle. You set up systems that will deal with the first - reach out as much as you can to the second
Greenhouse gases: Any gas that, by an accident of chemistry, happens to absorb radiation of a type that the Earth, by an accident of history, would like to lose.
The internet is like a herd of performing elephants with diarrhoea -- massive, difficult to redirect, awe-inspiring, entertaining, and a source of mind- boggling amounts of excrement when you least expect it.
"3M Co. Chairman, President and CEO George Buckley received more than $14.9 million in total compensation in 2009, up 21 percent from $12.3 million in 2008, according to a regulatory filing." 3M CEO's pay increased 21% in 2009 - Minneapolis / St. Paul Business Journal
LOL LOL LOL. 21% increase in salary for a company that saw a 15% slide in profits.Fortune 500 Profile - 3M.
How do they pay for that? Slashing jobs and benefits of course. Could it be any more clear?

and so it goes...
why did hhs last week exempt 30 megacorps from the obamacare requirement that they offer a minimum of 750K of coverage for each worker?
McDonald's, 29 other firms get health care coverage waivers - USATODAY.com
what's ms sebelius' response gonna be to the next 100 applicants?
the next 1000?
21% increase in salary after posting a 15.5% loss in profits. Don't ignore the numbers by changing the point.
If they were willing to do that for a single person at the expense of thousands of working folks, of course they are not a fan of providing thier employees with a reasonable health care plan.
and so it goes...
THAT's why sibelius exempted the 30 and put herself in the spot of having to approve the next countless applicants else demonstrate a double standard?
i would think the obscene salaries of the ceo's would impel her to say no, no?
