    "They" have less population, less area to cover, lower corporate tax rates, lower R&D expenses, lower average wages. We pay more because we can, because we do have higher tax rates on companies, more people to cover, greater personal choices that lead to obesity and drug usage, higher illegal alien expenses. You have never proposed identifying expenses and cutting them because to you it is all about access, not cost control.

    It's measured as a percentage, so no, your weak attempt there doesn't wash. And corporate tax doesn't play a role there. And shows the problem we have with attaching insurance to business instead of government. Again, we've been through this. We pay more for less.

    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.

    Don't know about you but I get more than I pay as do millions. My wife had colon cancer in 2009 and got the best treatment and is now is cancer free. We have the best medical care in the world and you want to turn it into the DMV.

    No, I don't. But if you do, aren't you part of the problem?

    Unlike you I am happy to live in this country with the healthcare system we have. Part of the problem is the constant whining of liberals who haven't a clue as to what they are whining about. Until you address the costs associated with healthcare adding more people to the roles isn't going to lower costs. Obamacare does nothing to lower costs.

    substance: the white house surrenders again, a biggie

    today: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/03/01/us...er=rss&emc=rss

    totally predictable, what else would top the governors' assn agenda?

    they been bellyachin since obamacare began

    and there's more to come---the eligibility battle and the forced funding of the extra 16 million on medicaid

    why do so many want OUT?

    Helping Americans Keep the Coverage They Have and Promoting Transparency | HHS.gov

    why does the white house keep letting em go?

    why in his sadsack sotu did ahab obama prioritize RACE TO THE TOP above his great domestic achievement?

    Transcript: Obama's State Of The Union Address : NPR

    LOL!

    obamacare is a disaster---economically, socially, politically

    live it, libs, love it, it's YOURS
