  1. PRN hours decreased because of the ACA
    I am no fan of the ACA. In fact, you can find pages of my posts that would indicate the opposite. That being said... Most employers, healthcare and otherwise, don't pay a higher rate for those...

  2. Obamacare and hospitals
    I stated that I believe that I can make better decisions about how my healthcare dollars are spent then the gov't can for me. So, how does that equate to me obviously believing that health insurance...

    No, of course not. Don't waste our time with such a dumb question. Medicare Advantage costs us more then medicare because it is a product of politicians and health industry lobbyists working...

    Your not getting it. The complaints are bogus. You might want to ponder the notion that perhaps medicare overpayments have more to do with political favors then economics.

    I believe we have covered that. The government overpays the insurance companies for medicare advantage.

    And for every article you find that says Medicare is more efficient, I find another one that says it is not. It's not so much the numbers are that much different, it's the interpretation of how...

    Yes, republicans often use the "how are you can to pay for it?" when it works to their advantage. The reality is, I'm sure you know, that congress (both sides) always finds the money (borrows,...

    Just like they fund everything else they don't have money for. On the back of the taxpayers.

    Yes, that is my point. Why would we trust those evil republicans, and even the god-sent democrats, to run a cost-effective, efficient, and non-corrupt Medicare for all? As for most of everything...

    I make it a rule not to discount information based solely on the source, but it's worth noting the context of AHIP, which is the lobbying group for the for-profit health insurance industry. Their...

    If we are all already paying into medicare already, but only a small portion of us are using it, how is it going to be more "financially robust" and sustainable if all of us are now using it? And,...

    Interesting. I guess we can't count you among the "it's Bush's fault" crowd. By the way, awhile back in this thread I asked you how medicare would become more financially robust and sustainable...

    I saw the video (and others) for myself, and I don't need someone else to interpret it for me. If I did, Johnathan Chait might be one of the last people that I would have do it for me.

    I love how W was supposedly the dumbest president in history, but at the same time able to trick congress, Great Britain, and much of the rest of the world into a war.

    How about I save everyone the trouble, and refer them to our conversation of October, 2013. It pretty much has everything I would say, and everything you would say in rebuttal: Mandate; what's the...
