    And THAT is why so many people wanting so called voluntary surgery end up in the US. They don't want to or can't suffer the pain of a bad hip or back until there is room for them in maybe 6 months to a year.

    Greetings, apdst.

    Truthfully, I wonder at times if anyone is! And that's sad, because in any beehive or anthill hierarchy, as an example, it's the workers that make things thrive...no workers, and everything comes to a halt! We're no different, IMO. :

    It takes everyone. No consumers, no demand, no jobs. While I agree that none of the politicos are working for OUR best interests, the Democrats are sabotaging the working class harder and faster than anyone.

    Just move to UHC. No need to add too many steps.

    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.

    Not necessarily true - it's just that at that point the only job really available is subsistence farming/hunting, and various forms of theft.

    True enough. All these people who haven't saved for retirement because they thought Social Security and Medicare were going to take care of them in their old age are about to be some pretty upset seniors.

    Ah, you're repeating the Palin meme. Actually rich Canadians do come here because our system rations healthcare based on income. Pretty stupid way to promote public health.

    Gotta have something to steal. To have something to steal, someone has to produce something worth stealing.

    Right, it's the Conservatives that shut down coal mines and offshore drilling.
