[DELETE] Greece and France kick out austerity leaders. Defaults may start looking like a good option. rlhartman New
[DELETE] So we switch to single payer health insurance and stop invading other countries. Big savings! <NT> SirFlipsALot New
Most people just don't take responsibility for their own healthcare, either by making good choices about their personal health or the cost. Have you ever shopped to see if another doctor was cheaper? Just as an example, a client that was on a major medical type insurance that meant a large out of pocket needed knee surgery. Since a big part of it came out of his pocket, he actually shopped that service. He even got the hospitals to give him written estimates of costs. By have the procedure done in a nearby town, he saved almost 3 grand.
Most people just want the doctor to give them a pill to take care of whatever is ailing them.
If "Big Brother" (your term) price-fixes the medical industry, you won't have that option. Welcome to your utopia! <NT> rlhartman New
I could still pick a reputable surgeon. I just wouldn't have to pay out the ass for it. <NT> SirFlipsALot New
Would you enter a career where everyone is paid the same regardless of their skill (or lack thereof)? rlhartman New
Yep. I was a union carpenter for years. Everyone made the same and we liked it that way. janedoe New
I'm happy for you. But are you saying we should compel everyone to live the way YOU decide? <NT> rlhartman New
