    pretty easy with only 4.2 million people to manage....there are more people in LA.....the county i live in has 3.5 million.....the amount of people and the diversity of the people matters...

    Harvard and USC economists say that the proposed healthcare reforms would slow the rate of cost increases and free up money for companies to raise wages and hire more workers. (the article is at LA Times - I can't post the link)

    I guess we'll continue to listen to the opinions which confirm our beliefs and discount everything else.

    You're not the first to suggest that population has something to do with it. It doesn't.

    hows Chinas system working out?.....Japan is a small land compared to us with basically the same type of people living there....how many diverse nationalities with different thoughts are there?....how about different religions?.....the great majority of their people are on the same page....and in China they dont have much choice in what their govt does.....my sons friend who is Chinese works and now lives in Shanghai for their company....he says it is interesting but he says their medical system is overtaxed by the amount of people that are there...like living in a sardine can is the way he put it...population and the kind of people matter....keep denying it...
