<quoted text>The only Doctors that refuse Medicare patients are the ones that are self employed. Those are few and will continue to be fewer as time goes on. Most Doctors are now employees of a group practice or hospital. That is the future. Depends on the state of where a Doctor has a practice and the reason for the visit but the average Medicare reimbursement is $50.00. A Doctor seeing 6 per hour would make $300.00/hr or $2400.00 /per day. I really don't know what the problem is. Most people would be fine making $300.00/hr.
Group practices are also refusing to accept new Medicare patients.

A doctor who spends only 10 minutes with each patient, including time to record his findings, is not practicing good medicine.

A doctor seeing 48 patients per day, not even allowing for potty breaks or lunch, is not practicing good medicine.

And your reported $300/hour does not allow for office staff, rent, utilities, insurance, taxes, and various other expenses. Actual in come to the doctor is only a fraction of that.

All three vacancies on the labor board had been open for months before Obama acted to fill them.
Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa called the ruling "a radical departure from precedent" and argued that Obama had no choice but to act.
"Throughout his presidency, Republicans have employed unprecedented partisan delay tactics and filibusters to prevent confirmation of nominees to lead the NLRB, thus crippling the board's legal authority to act," Harkin said.
If Obama's recess appointment of Cordray to the newly created consumer board is eventually ruled invalid, it could nullify all the regulations the consumer board has issued, many of which affect the mortgage business.

(This is a direct result of lobbying by banks)
The reason for the Senate confirmation procedure is to install officials that are mutually acceptable to both sides, even if they tilt to one side. This is part of our system of checks and balances.

For example, John Kerry will be confirmed as Secretary of State with little opposition, but Bernie Sanders would probably fail to receive approval for that post.

Obama has persisted in nominating highly partisan individuals who are unable to obtain Senate confirmation, such as nominating attorneys who represent unions to the NLRB, an obvious conflict of interest.

The courts are right to slap Obama upside the head for violating the Constitution.

No offense, but you really should educate yourself before speaking falsehoods with such confidence.
The Russian economist, Grigory Yavlinsky, who became an important advisor to Mikhail Gorbachev said the Soviet system was not working because the workers were not working.
Sound familiar?
So one Russian says something that Lorac agrees with, and she's a big supporter of the commie!!

That was merely one man's opinion, Lorac, something that you like to remind others of when they present opinions as facts.

Read what the American CIA said about the fall of the USSR and get back to us when you actually learn something.

Your base level cluelessness is why you changed your name to Lorac, remember??

You're doing it again. Pretending to understand something that is way beyond your grasp.

von Mises predicted the fall of Soviet economic system in 1921.....

"The Austrian economist Ludwig von Mises predicted the unsustainability and eventual collapse of the Soviet system in his 1921 book Socialism: An Economic and Sociological Analysis, published months before Lenin implemented the New Economic Policy reintroducing partial property rights. His analysis was based on the economic calculation problem, a critique of central planning first outlined in 1920 journal articles. His argument was that the Soviet Union would find itself increasingly unable to set correct prices for the goods and services it produced""

Which is exactly what happened, hastened by overspending on the Military.

But hey, you've got a Communist economist on your side, eh??

What is it with you and Commies?? Sometimes you hate 'em, except when you use 'em to support your ignorance.

Many federal dollars are spent on military facilities in "red" states for two reasons: strategic location and willingness of the state to host such facilities.

Of course, we could always turn the Hamptons into a giant military base if New York wanted more federal dollars.

Communism has never existed just in name. What has been labeled as Communism are actually hybird forms of Socialism that incorporates Totalitarianism that is needed vs Authoritarianism like the hybird form of Socialism here in the US that is opposed to individualism and libertarianism(Capitalism).

Totalitarianism

Totalitarianism (or totalitarian rule) is a political system where the state holds total authority over the society and seeks to control all aspects of public and private life wherever necessary.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Totalitarianism

Authoritarianism

Authoritarianism is a form of social organization characterized by submission to authority as well as the administration of said authority. In politics, an authoritarian government is one in which political authority is concentrated in a small group of politicians. It is usually opposed to individualism and libertarianism.

So, according to dumbass you, if I have a trade show for baby stuff, the second amendment gives you the right to set up a booth to sell assault rifles.
I have news, you GD idiot. Those who run the shows have the right to determine what is acceptable to be shown or sold.
It has NOTHING to do with what is or is not legal.
It is a HINTING show. It is not legal to hunt in PA with an assault rifle.
I have a plan, since you don't think I own any guns, try breaking into my home & you will find out.

That whole red state/blue state lie has been refuted many places, but don't expect any of the lib trolls on here to stop regurgitating it. All I need to know about blue blue states is the thousands bailing out of places like California and moving to where taxes are lower. People vote with their feet as well as with ballots.

I wish Mickelson wouldn't have backed down.. Tiger bailed on the rip offs in Cal. a long time ago.

That's kind of simplistic. You assume legalizing drugs would evaporate gangs. Gangs have been a part of society as long as we've had cities, but the brutality we contend with is relatively new. You have to get beyond the accompanying elements of inner-city gangdome and go to the heart of the matter, too much idle time and non-existent family involvement. As you know, having jobs available to our kids isn't enough, they need to see a need for jobs, that comes from the home and vicariously, the government. We encourage idleness by subsidizing it.

Nuculur as usual Wrong!! The question of funding was asked doing a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee!! Assistant Secretary of State’ Lamb’ was asked whether there was "any budget consideration and lack of budget" which played into the number of people assigned for security at the Benghazi consulate. Lamb's answer: "No!!
Let's see the link, liar.

Meanwhile, back in realityland:

Jason Chaffetz Admits House GOP Cut Funding For Embassy Security:'You Have To Prioritize Things'

"Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) acknowledged on Wednesday that House Republicans had consciously voted to reduce the funds allocated to the State Department for embassy security since winning the majority in 2010.

On Wednesday morning, CNN anchor Soledad O'Brien asked the Utah Republican if he had "voted to cut the funding for embassy security."

"Absolutely," Chaffetz said. "Look we have to make priorities and choices in this country. We have…15,000 contractors in Iraq. We have more than 6,000 contractors, a private army there, for President Obama, in Baghdad. And we’re talking about can we get two dozen or so people into Libya to help protect our forces. When you’re in tough economic times, you have to make difficult choices. You have to prioritize things.”

For the past two years, House Republicans have continued to deprioritize the security forces protecting State Department personnel around the world. In fiscal year 2011, lawmakers shaved $128 million off of the administration's request for embassy security funding. House Republicans drained off even more funds in fiscal year 2012 -- cutting back on the department's request by $331 million."

----------

Republican cuts to embassy security funding caused Benghazi.

Case closed.

Don't come around here with yuour biases opinions, nitwit.

Either use links to support your position, or you're just another liar, like Nobraina/Galt, or Carol/Lorac.

You're really easy. Much like Killtaker!!

Despite numerous requests and warnings nothing was done to increase security in Libya, it's clear Hillary and Obama both share the blame for the deaths. Unfortunately the LSM is in their back pockets and refuse to do their jobs and expose the truth to the LIV's.
