We are friends and I feel the same about no resesatation.  My wife has said she is leaving me for 35 years and I told her not to worry cause I am going to die before her and then she will have her freedom.  I don't feel I have too much imput  on rule making and that is why I go from the gut insted of based on study and watching the news 24 hours a day.  I only care enough to know I don't care that much.  Mental exersize is kinda fun though.
I don't want to be your friend but I have to cause you put me off gaurd by offering to send me some foundation for my hives.  Dang it, now I have to like you.
Wishing you the best.

Good morning, Ace. No, my wife is the shy, quiet type. She lets me make all the decisions and goes along with them.

Of course, I learned long ago that if I made all decisions in her favor, she would do that.   :wink:

After 49 years as of yesterday, I guess it works. I'm dumb enough to think I'm the boss and she has her way and is happy. :cool:

congrats to you and your better half. :cheesy: . I wish my wife would do things that way. :tongue: .  I have a dnr also and believe it or not so did my dad. all the stuff he had done was because the doctors said that with his active life style and the healthness of the rest of his body. when every he had surguries he was always up and walking within three days. we always told him he was mule headed plus the love between him and my mom was somthing to behold. I try to follow his teachings to us as much as I can.

Of course taxes would be higher if we had single payer health.  However insurance  premiums would be lower cause it would be paid for through taxes.  If the insurance part being cut out adds up to four hundred billion a year and economics is math even with some missing parts that I may not understand then $2000 compared to $5000 might still be a good deal and if britton has issue with there healt care and made it $3000 per person those issues might not be there and it would still be $2000 cheaper then we are doing.  They have better metrics on child mortality and life span is matching ours and our life span is slipping.

Maby we should look at what austraila is doing or maby south korea.

You might as well be paying taxes if you are like micheal bush and kathy and having to pay $15000/$30000 a year anyway.

You contradict yourself... "Of course taxes would be higher if we had single payer health.  However insurance  premiums would be lower cause it would be paid for through taxes. "   You acknowledge that a lack of competition causes higher treatment costs, yet say that insurance costs would be lower.  It doesn't work that way.  Insurance premiums would be HIGHER because of a lack of competition!
You will note that Kathy and Michael's rates increased under Obamacare, the Holy Grail of the Demorats.  "OH, they might as well pay higher taxes cuz they pay more now anyway."  Crippled thinking.  Your math is getting worse and worse.

Re-open competition and watch the costs decrease and the quality of care increase.  Get the government out of my medical decisions!

I can't say I hate the government, but I am proudly distrustful of them.

 The hospital sends the ins. co. a bill and they scream "too much", we will only pay 70% of that.

The hospital sends the gov. a bill and gets a check quickly for the whole amount.

The next time, the hospital sends the ins. co. a bill for 70% and gets paid. Then they send a bill to the gov. for 120%, since they don't fuss.

All the while, we have to supply the money for both. Only a democrat would think the gov. is cheaper.

You missread my intent.  Maby the way it was wrote caused that, maby not.  What my above statement said if you use both of the first sentences together is.  You will pay taxes instead of insurance premiums.  You will not have insurance premiums as you wont have medical insurance because you already have it through taxes.  getting rid of insurance middle man save four hundred billion a year.  That is differrent then how you are taking what I wrote to mean.

I did not say no compatition would make medical care go up in my post.  I did not take a position on that.  What I did take a position on was that GB pays $2000 per person for coverage that you indicated was bad coverage.  That we pay $5000 for out insurance.  I then pointed out if $3000 was paid, we would still be cheaper then we are now.  The point in that was that you said the GB people have to bring their own tylonol when they went to see their doctor.  And I say that I bet if they were paying $3000 in GB that the extra money would probly pay for tylonol and take away your argument on how bad their system is and would still be $2000 cheaper then where we are today.

I do not think you are countering what I am saying but more just changing what I am saying to make you case.

I do understand your position though and had the same position back in the eighties when it came up under clinton.  I just know more and feel differrently now due to where we are and seeing the insurance doing the thing to people that was used a a scare tactic to make us not want single payer.  Now I just think of the insurance providers as an unneeded third wheel that is taking money that could be put to better use.

Could and do bad things happen with any system or program, Yes, just like they happend before health care even became an issue.  Poeple take from any system if they can enrich themselve and so no matter what direction we go, there will allways be problims with it that need addressed.  I don't trust the government or the insurance man.
Cheers

I trust the private business man that sells a hammer for 7.00 a lot more than I trust the gov. that pays 6000.00 for the same hammer.
The gov. has no business in healthcare pricing and paying at all. In malpractice and euthanasia, yes. The money end, NO.
