Re: Vermont Apparently Abandons Single-Payer

Removing medical insurance from the equation might introduce a bit of competition into the system (or a bit more if albaby is correct in his assertion that it's already there even though none of us can see it).

Re: Vermont Apparently Abandons Single-Payer

At current pricing there are a LOT of folks who can't afford services (which is what the ACA was supposed to address).

You are never going to make major surgery affordable absent insurance. ACA does next to nothing to reduce the [more]

Re: Vermont Apparently Abandons Single-Payer

Not really. The competition is very slight. You don't see "My name is Dr Scheib, and I can physical your body for 29.95!". Just doesn't happen.

Just because they don't typically compete on price doesn't mean that there is no [more]

Re: Vermont Apparently Abandons Single-Payer

I still think this is oversimplified. Yes, price controls would be annoying to many. However, there also would be savings having one's practice in a SP state. How many people in a typical doctor's office do nothing but paperwork which is different [more]

Re: Vermont Apparently Abandons Single-Payer

I suspect (but don't know for certain) that the relatively small population didn't help. I also would think that funding it would require an increase in taxes (which voters wouldn't really feel if they no longer had insurance premiums to pay, [more]

Normalize relations with Cuba?

Thoughts about the consequences in 2016?


My thought is YES! It would be one of the more rational things a POTUS has done in a while.

Surgeon Gen and guns, whatsthabigdeal?

For either side?

The OSG doesn't have any real authority over guns. I don't expect we will see a new warning label on guns that states "Use of this device may be hazardous to your health and the health of others."

Re: I think we should claim a victory of sorts

The well organized group that brought us 9/11 has been reduced to a few Islamofascists hiding safely in foreign countries while calling for anybody who happens to live in the West to go out and "do something".

The result is

Re: Not Black

Can you post even one link to story from the 1960s or 1970s where the local cops went on a no knock raid at the wrong house and killed an innocent person?

Re: Roughing the Passer

Ray isn't talking about a review by demand here. He's talking about the refs calling for it themselves so they can decide what to do. I think that's pretty reasonable especially when there is some doubt. I doubt it would increase the length of the [more]

I'm thinking they need to give the refs an "I don't have a clue what happened flag". It could be blue or purple or some other color besides yellow.

It indicates that they are going to look at the replay before deciding on

Re: Dinner sized turtles?

100-lbs for an alligator snapper is still rather small. They can easily get to 150 lbs or more. The Chicago Zoo once had one that was nearly 250 lbs. Not sure if that is the record.
