    More that is your own bias influencing your vision of it. Not very objective at all.

    But the point is, the US is not Greece. And our situation is different. And Greece isn't France, or Great Britain, or even Canada. And the US is none of those places either. So constantly going off to places that do not speak to our issue is counter productive.

    You really are naive. I give you less than a year as a dept. head.

    Our country isn't far behind, and the cost of health care is a large part of the reason.

    Yes, and most likely after also. There isn't much in the health care bill that is gong to stop our runaway costs.

    Agreed. There is some hope that more insured will make hospital mark ups less needed. That could help. But the things that would help most were stripped from the bill. My only hope is that we can add those things later.

    So let me see if I have this correct, you are blaming hospital markups to treat the uninsured as the reason for the high costs of healthcare? Couldn't have anything at all to do with illegals using the healthcare system? Couldn't have anything to do with govt. regulations and the high costs of R&D? Couldn't have anything to do with a shortage of hospitals and doctors? Couldn't have anything to do with frivolous lawsuits? Couldn't have anything to do with hospitals not going after patients who could afford to pay their bills but instead run from their responsibilities?

    Your answer to the rising healthcare costs is to increase them on the backs of the taxpayers? Apparently shifting costs from one pocket to another is ok as long as one pocket gets a decrease?

    I sincerely hope you learn something as a department head because you haven't learned a thing as a nurse.
