    Does a liberal have the IQ to understand how Republican capitalist health care.....would work???

    Patients would be spending their own money so the incentive to decrease costs would increase 1000%

    Providers would be competing on price and quality to survive. This would decrease costs another 1000%

    It would save every American about $5000 a year.

    This sounds like a wonderful idea Edward. I would love to see healthcare providers paying us to go see them for all of our medical needs. With costs decreasing by over 1000%, doctors and hospitals would be paying us to go to see them. Wouldn't that just be great? I'm really not sure how it would work though; maybe you can explain it to a simple minded pinhead like me?

    This works on the same principle as nineteenth century markets. No restrictions, so prices were guaranteed to be lower and lower.
    Uh, but monopolies developed, cornered markets, controlled prices and gouged everyone.
    How does that work again?

    It's rather simple actually to anyone with even a meager understanding of economics and how a market works. As for the OPs numbers, I don't know where he is getting his $5000 figure from so whether or not that is accurate, who knows. The 1000%, of course, is hyperbole, his point being it would result in a major decrease in costs, but you already knew that.

    Yeah. It would make private interests richer while sticking the U.S. taxpayer with the burden of uninsured emergency room visits.

    Really? Disease has profit motive? Is that in any medical textbooks?

    LOL! -1000%, huh?

    But liberals don't know that at all. How can they if they simply lack the IQ to understand capitalism. When you can understand capitalism it seems simple, like the theory of relativity if you can understand it, but when you lack the IQ it is impossibly complex.

    The liberal then tries to fake it by pretending what he cant understand is irrelevant. Then he is free to propose something simple like a magical liberal soviet government program. Make sense?

    a perfect example of the liberal IQ.

    Everyone wants more pay and profits of course but competition makes you accept lower and lower pay and profits until you are working at cost or below, in a capitalist system.

    This is Econ 101 class one day one but a liberal lacks the IQ to understand it.
