    I hear outrage from some people about Sue Lowden, the prospective GOP Senate nominee, saying how we should even give a doctor a chicken dinner if that's our form of payment for services.

    Honestly, what's so horrible about that?

    And no, admins, don't send this to The Flame or Lame Zone, because I'm not trying to get a rise out of people; I'm serious.

    Doctors can't pay malpractice insurance with chicken dinners. Hell, UHC won't work because doctors won't even take medicaid patients. They just don't get how much it costs to keep the healthcare system functioning. More patients and fewer doctors is a prescription for disaster. I hope the GOP repeals healthcare reform.

    I don't believe I heard the whole thing, but was she talking about what a good HC system would be (without ObamaCare)?

    - Rationed care
    - Killing Granny
    - Paid abortion
    - Free care for aliens

    She wants bartering to be one of the top viable ways to finance health care. I assume you can see the problem with that.

    With the new laws now enacted? Yes.

    But if she's talking about what she views as a "good" HC system? Tell me the problem.

    Well let me ask you something, why did we end bartering in the first place for the most part?

    Speaking of outrageous claims, how about:

    - Deficit neutral
    - Will contain costs
    - Will make insurance cheaper
    - Doctors amputating legs and removing tonsils just for the money
    - Will cover everybody

    ???

    Because coin is non perishable, portable and easy to secure.
