    PAYING DOWN THE DEFICIT

    by putting the unemployed back to work, creating more taxes to be used to pay down the deficit and pay for healthcare and other government run programs. We do not have to raise taxes, just put people back to work and bring jobs back from foreign countries and stop given money to foreign countries.


    COST OF HEALTHCARE.

    Doctors must be salaried and doctors will not push number of patients but concentrate on patient care. Cleveland Clinic have doctors on a salary and it works and is cost effective.

    There need to be a national data base with patient medical records that doctors can see immediately. Cut down patient seeing numerous doctors, getting duplicate and unnecessary tests and medications. Every medical provider gets the same patient information.

    Hospital staff doctors will have patient information and not have to depend on patients personal physician. Which cannot be contacted.

    The number ONE way to fix health care is tort reform. Why isn't it on the table?

    Opponents of Healthcare reform love to talk about tort reform. Lawsuits amount to less than 2% of medical costs in the US.

    Tort reform is only part of the problem. Too many of you believe that it is the single answer and it is not. And BTW, by how much do you think we should limit liability? And should there be alternative consequences to malpractice? Should a physician lose his/her license if found negligent, and if so, for how long?

    The money wasted in Iraq alone would pay for healthcare.

    I suppose you have some statistics?

    Lawsuits drive up malpractice insurance, cause defensive medicine -- the "unnecessary tests" Obama prattles on about. Both of which in turn drive up costs. It's actually one of the only things the Dems and Pugs in Congress agree on.

    And there are NO "opponents of healthcare reform." None, anywhere. That's a strawman, a fictional entity invented so idiots such as yourself could have a boogieman. Something for your cult leaders to demonize. Every religion has to have a devil.

    There ARE however, opponents of THIS Marxist, counter-productive plan which is alot more about gaining power over people than it is about helping them. Those are people who are FOR actual healthcare reform, which by all accounts so far, this is anything but.

    But.... Let's take your 2%. Do you realize that represents BILLIONS of dollars? If this is supposed to be budget neutral, gonna pay for itself, don't you think 2% is a significant number? It actually represents twice as much, percentage wise, than the proposed cuts in medicare! But THAT sure as hell isn't coming off the table!

    You're not thinking, you are merely regurgitating the spoon fed talking points.

    More regurgitation without cogitation. And perfect parroting, puppet!

    I suppose the billions we're spending in both Iraq and Afghanistan right now aren't significant at all.
