Rantings and tirades of a frustrated economist.
A friend of mine in the Army paid the 20 percent share on his wife's insurance for surgery after a motorcycle accident rather than go to a free military hospital. That's what the future of socialized medicine will look like here.Here are some stats and facts on socialized healthcare vs. the US:http://powinca.blogspot.com/2008/09/socialized-medicine-sucks.htmlI've also got a shout out for you and your book.
Totally unrelated to this post, but how come you have not posted any commentry about McCain's VP choice?I personally think she is a very dangerous choice, mainly because she is primarily a social conservative, not a fiscal one, and she wants to legislate morality. He was just pandering to the Christian Coalition in picking her.JunamJunam
Hi Major,Thanks, sales have been picking up.Hey Junam,Eh, I'm not that exciting about Palin. Not that I loathe her for merely existing (I was shocked just how quickly the left was to bersmirch her), but I'm not excited about McCain and more or less think the country's going down the toilet and it's time to move.
That is just awful to read some of the comments to that article... a doctor came in showing symptoms of a herniated disc, something that required immediate treatment or risk paralysis, and he had to wait in line for 30 minutes before seeing a Doctor who didn't do any normal checkups, gave him some meds and sent him home.. he was back within hours because it had worsened and that was when they did an MRI and got him treated.Someone accused him of trying to "cut the line" because he was a Doctor.Apparently trying to get immediate treatment instead of accepting the risk of paralysis is evil.They even talk down on the US system. It may not be perfect but at least I can get the care I require. Now if only we could get it back into a free market as well.
Cap't: I hear you on the moving part, but where? I have been researching places to move my family to and keep coming up blank.Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

The public system would stagnate if there is a private system alongside.
