Now you know why the rates for working people are so high.@sneakypete
Nah - Misdirected ire.
last I looked, 80% margin on insurance....
Insurance companies own the medical facilities...
$300B welfare/medicare/medicaid program that only pays out 13-25%with so much paper that medical has full time staffers just to take the weight off of bookkeeping...
INSANE bureaucratic rules that won't pay a local clinic, and require recipients to go to emergency rooms instead.
absurd social policies that encourage drug use, single parent households, and bastard children...
and most of all, levering the churches (that have a penchant for charity) out of the medical (and especially hospital and mental institution) game.
I wonder what's real by the time all the greedy bastards take their rake off the top.
I am not against charity. Governmental charity being the last resort... We are a wealthy Christian nation. But for the most part, the government should get out of the way and let folks do.
Like allowing a lesser health care system - Put a registered nurse in a minivan and let her do house calls - 80 % of the weight on doctors offices are stuff a decent nurse could handle, at a greatly reduced cost, with less vectors toward transmitting infection.
Stop the crusade against alt med - There ain't a dock worker in the country that doesn't know the benefit of chiropractors...
Everything from band-aids and vitamins to full care in a facility should be 100% write off without limit.Folks shouldn't be taxed on medical costs.
Everything donated to the poor, especially medical, especially internal to families, for med care, elder care, child care, should be write-off without limit. Let folks help their own.
And make it extremely attractive for churches and other charitable orgs to get back into the medical industry.
They did it cheaper and better.
Then you'll see the props knocked out of medical costs, and with alternative, more local and granular charity available, government can step out to a great degree.
