Wow...MG, just re-read the quote you posted and you'll see what I'm talking about. Read it very carefully.
"There is a lot of talk coming from CitiGroup about how Dodd-Frank isn't perfect, So let me say this to anyone listening at Citi —I agree with you. Dodd-Frank isn't perfect. It should have broken you into pieces." -- Elizabeth Warren
From your previous quote:
Another quote, per your source:Canada’s national health insurance program had overhead of 1.3 percent; the overhead among Canada’s private insurers was higher than that in the United States (13.2 percent vs. 11.7 percent).
Administrative costs for private health insurers are 11.7%, not 30-40%, as you had previously claimed. The 31% figure you cited was the combined administrative costs across the entire American health spectrum.In 1999 U.S. private insurers retained $46.9 billion of the $401.2 billion they collected in premiums. Their average overhead (11.7 percent) exceeded that of Medicare (3.6 percent) and Medicaid (6.8 percent). Overall, public and private insurance overhead totaled $72.0 billion — 5.9 percent of the total health care expenditures in the United States, or $259 per capita (Table 1).
I'd actually comment but as always Right does an amazing job of blowing idiotic polls out of the water and showing hypocracy of those that desperately cling to such things. I've got nothing more to add besides "what he said"
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
why would they support it that is not true if this passes I will change my major this is no point in going to school for 8 years if you dont get paid well for it
He actually did a terrible job. He made a (false) ad hominem attack, then focused on point 1 - which Nate Silver said was unusual, but not the reason not to trust the poll - and ignored the very real continuing points, including the failure to disclose methodology, which would help in evaluating whether pt 1 was important.
As usual, the right dismisses based on politics of personal destruction (he's a partisan hack!) and not on substance.
I really don't think so. They kind of need their jobs for, you know, money, and even if this plan was the worst thing ever, they would still be getting money from somewhere.
And an unbiased survey (come on, if it's from Huffpo...).... of real Doctors!!!!
Investors.com - 45% Of Doctors Would Consider Quitting If Congress Passes Health Care OverhaulTwo of every three practicing physicians oppose the medical overhaul plan under consideration in Washington, and hundreds of thousands would think about shutting down their practices or retiring early if it were adopted, a new IBD/TIPP Poll has found.
The poll contradicts the claims of not only the White House, but also doctors' own lobby — the powerful American Medical Association — both of which suggest the medical profession is behind the proposed overhaul.
It also calls into question whether an overhaul is even doable; 72% of the doctors polled disagree with the administration's claim that the government can cover 47 million more people with better-quality care at lower cost.
The IBD/TIPP Poll was conducted by mail the past two weeks, with 1,376 practicing physicians chosen randomly throughout the country taking part. Responses are still coming in, and doctors' positions on related topics — including the impact of an overhaul on senior care, medical school applications and drug development — will be covered later in this series.
