    Seeing that I have a roughly million dollar operation in my future I certainly see a benefit in medicare.

    And that shows exactly what? Medicaid is insurance below a certain income and Medicare is insurance for over the age of 65. The majority fit into the other programs. Again a selective chart without context. What percentage of the people fit into each category?

    Fact is, like it or not, it is below the cost of the rest of medicine. I await your evidence. Cost benefit, remember.

    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.

    The fact is an you continue to ignore it, that Federal Run programs are ripe with fraud, waste, and abuse all funded by the Federal Taxpayer which you don't seem to worry about. Healthcare is a personal responsibility best managed at the local not the Federal level, a simple concept that you ignore. You have so much faith in a govt. that has a 14 trillion dollar debt, amazing.

    You don't seem to care much about the debt, do you? Name for me one Federally funded social program that cost what it was supposed to cost, did what it was supposed to do, and actually solved a problem? Shoving anything off to the Federal Taxpayer is your way of shirking your local responsibility.

    You can find fraud everywhere. And much of the fraud you speak of comes from the private sector, individuals and compaines. So, I don't ingore it. I just don't run away because we have problems we need to address.

    Oh, and I'll take your concern about debt seriously when you first denounce republcians who spend recklessly and two call for both cuts in spending and increases in taxes. otherwise, you're really not serious.

    The difference is in the private sector the public doesn't have to pay for that fraud. In the public sector fraud doesn't matter to a arrogant liberal who just throws more money at the problem. Raising taxes will not put 16 million unemployed Americans back to work.

    We all pay for fraud everywhere. The private secotr doesn't eat those costs, they pass it on. This requires other things to cost more,, and in the end we all pay for it.
