  1. WPAHS makes antitrust charges against UPMC and the Blues

    No doubt.
  2. When it comes to 'reality,' I am constantly injecting it into the discussion when folks routinely use the pointless distraction of using the European/Canadian comparison. You are right...it's not "helpful," so why do socialized advocates keep doing i...
  3. This is not the case in the US...most firefighters are volunteers and many are not tax-supported. Many ambulance services are private, even if non-profit, and do not rely on tax-dollars. And for every police officer on the tax dole, there are 2-5 mor...
  4. And such extrapolation indicates an incomplete evaluation of the definition of a right, and what that provides to us. What one absolutely CANNOT extrapolate from the Constitution is that the gov't has the privilege to take money from one person to pa...
  5. UPMC CEO Romoff's salary hits $4.45 million

    UPMC is not entirely a non-profit, and they never pretend to be. AND, they pay taxes on their for-profit endeavors. Additionally, they give back millions to the city, i.e. the $100 MILLION for the Pittsburgh Promise. And the people complaining about ...
  6. WPAHS makes antitrust charges against UPMC and the Blues

    Well, I suppose thinking pragmatically it makes sense to blame UPMC for closing southside, but the reality is that you can't possibly know that Soutside would remain open if it were affiliated with any other hospital or tried to remain a stand-alone....
  7. 10 Excellent Reasons for National Health Care

    No you don't. Some of the most financially efficient health systems in the world are NOT single-payer, but are systems that incorporate private insurance into the mix. Kind of doesn't support the claim that for-profit health operators are "definite...
  8. Interesting article on Obama health care plan

    The illogical element is the inaccurate definition of people's position. Prolife people are not prolife because the specifically want to oppose people's capacity to choose, they are prolife because they think it's wrong to kill unborn babies. Even Ob...
  9. 10 Excellent Reasons for National Health Care

    Just to clarify, Iraq was in a 12-year humanitarian crisis before the liberation of the Iraqi people, caused by the UN, not the US. Iraqi children were dying in six-figure numbers at the time. Today...not happening. The sanctions ended the day we int...
  10. UPMC CEO Romoff's salary hits $4.45 million

    I think when you take a city-based hospital, expand it by almost 10 times to provide health care to an entire region, create a global footprint with their services, and take it to a position that consistently ranks in the top 15, then you might have ...
  11. WPAHS makes antitrust charges against UPMC and the Blues

    WPAHS is a dismal failure at understanding the dynamics of the Western PA health market. If they understood the market, they wouldn't be sitting around in a pity-circle trying to figure out why the don't matter anymore.
  12. Interesting article on Obama health care plan

    First, you don't know that to be true. Second, it's a deflection; someone unconditionally claimed that NHS recipients could just get private insurance. That was the point I was responding to. It amazes me how people just fire off unsupportable gener...
  13. WPAHS makes antitrust charges against UPMC and the Blues

    You asked where you could "witness" the arrogance, so I shared an example. Since I worked for the organization long before they offered me the partial FTE, I had a strong grip on the "mood" of the organization. This general attitude is of which I spe...
  14. WPAHS makes antitrust charges against UPMC and the Blues

    I experienced it at Alle-Kiski and AGH. I was a per-diem employee at Alle-Kiski, and was invited to take a partial FTE position with benefits and a seat on a committee. Since it wasn't full-time, I also sought out desirable employment elsewhere to fi...
  15. ANA membership?

    i'm sure the ana would argue they did the former rather than the latter. of course they would...but then, they would be wrong. i'm sure you will correct me upon this , if i misunderstand the nuances of lobbying , but i thought a lobbying group conta...
