The Ruling Austerity Consensus

There is a consensus among both major political parties on the need for austerity, said Left Business Observer publisher Doug Henwood.“The only controversy among the ruling elite is, just how much and what kind” of austerity. Meanwhile, U.S. organized labor “has no independent politics, and no independent capacity for thought.”

What does it cost to remove republican heads from their a$$.
You may nead to figure that in as well
The device known as a "thorasic endograft" has a beginning cost of about $12,000 and since they are not stockpiled, transportation, usually by helicopter, is often necessary if they are available at all. If they are not available the patient usually dies in surgery while the the surgeons scramble to repair the aorta with pieces of femoral artery while trying to maintain blood flow to the kidneys, colon etc.

If the patient doesn't die, the potential expense for survival is extraordinary and then the continuing health maintenance is beyond extraordinary.

But it's nowhere near as expensive as some cancers or certain other ailments brain tumors, and such.

These normal real life ailments can run into the millions of dollars.

And then there are the various accidents that pop up in life that could require surgeries leading to long term care.

BALCK KIDS THANKS YOU OBAMA Philly Schools Turn Back Clock on Equality

Philadelphia school authorities are calling for draconian changes in the system’s operations, including elimination of limits on class size – on top massive school closings.“I think that it’s turning the clock back on guaranteeing every child equalization of opportunity,” said State Rep. W. Curtis Thomas. Many schools don’t have libraries, safety officers, nurses, clean bathrooms, books, computers, or “teachers that are teaching in their areas of competency,” said Thomas, who wants Secretary of Education Arne Duncan,“along with the federal courts, to step in and straighten this situation out.”

Ok let's try this again. Where will the states get the money to pay the $10,742 'tax credit' to pay the insurers for a family of 4 making $35,000 when the federal dollars dry up? Plus they can get help with the other $1388 if they can't pay it. Something about this just doesn't feel right.
You remain one of the most uninformed posters here.

The states do not pay for these. They are paid by a federal tax credit.

Those that except the medicaid expansion would eventually pay 10% of the cost.

My God, Flack. Where ever you get your information continues to make you look dumb.

If your wife is ill enough to require a CT, why quibble?
The $100 is likely a co-pay, not a deductible, and in any event is chicken feed.
Most medical facilities prefer not to be paid in cash. Doesn't dumbass Dave have a credit card?
Not quibbling, jackasss.

It was to show your dumbasssd buddy Eman how some people can be denied medical care.

$10 s not an issue for me but very well could be for many.

"Plans are underway to boost the number of medical students at Swiss universities to offset an expected shortage of doctors and limit the influx of foreign practitioners. However, it is not clear who will foot the bill for the additional courses."
-------
"A shortage of junior doctors to start work in hospitals this August is forcing the NHS to try to recruit from India, the BBC has learned. " : "The National Health Service (NHS) is the shared name of three of the four publicly funded healthcare systems in the United Kingdom"
-------
"Living in a small ‘city’ can be tough but that is Norway – everyone lives in a small city.’They’ say that Norway is up there with quality of life, even the best, but how can it be so if there are no doctors available? I live in a normal small city, it is the largest city in Finnmark county, and yet there are no doctors who will accept anymore on their patient lists."
-------
"Many of the vacant posts will be filled by locums or agency doctors on a short-term basis where needs are critical. However, pressures on the HSE budget because of cost overruns are likely to lead to cuts in spending on agency staff for the rest of the year.
The HSE spent almost €2 million recruiting junior doctors from India and Pakistan to plug gaps in the health service, Minister for Health James Reilly revealed earlier this year. The spend included about €169,000 on flights. However, less than half of those who came to Ireland passed an examination set by the Medical Council, and most of those subsequently left Ireland. The HSE paid the doctors €2,500 a month during the interim period."
---------
"Germany's worsening doctor shortage means there could be 7000 fewer general practitioners by 2020 than there are today,"
Many sreas of the US have had doctor shortages for years. Now what?

Government collects the taxes; negotiates the cost of procedures and drugs that is the same and equitable for everyone. No one is denied, no copays, no deductibles, no denial because of pre existing conditions; in other words, all that insurance mumbo jumbo would be eliminated completely. The only way an insurance company makes a profit is by taking in more than they pay out. They have a vested interest in denying services; and the CEO is beholden to a board of directors, rather than the policy holders.
Your system applied to the auto industry would give everybody a subcompact car for free. Those who wanted a better car would have no option.

Stop being a mutt Galt, you can google this shyt.
I actually have a friend who lives there in a pretty nice little enclave of ranchettes with horses. She's an engineer and just loves that area.
The idea that Camp Pendleton is "just over the hill" is a joke.

Google can't tell you everything.

Some of the ranchettes that you refer to are very nice, but many others are dumps, basically dustbowls.
