In a cash business, without the burden of Medicare and insurance paperwork, the total cost of an office visit would be no more (and perhaps less) than the $45 copay for the ObamaKKKare exchanges.
You might want to reconsider that nonsense you just posted.

Unless you can figure out how to explain how a cash doctor does referrals and arranges for hospital stays.

There are cash doctors already__at Walk-In Medical Clinics.

You don't stiff those guys__they get the money up front and never once have I ever seen an ambulance dropping off a patient at any of the four I pass daily.

The founders always envisioned citizen legislators instead of a professional political class.
And they also envisioned peer juries__how'd that work out?

They never envisioned the right wing or idiots like you though__did they?

Please explain how the manner in which the doctor is paid has any effect on his ability to refer patients and/or arrange hospital admissions.

The trial judge also screwed up big time in the jury instructions, as discussed in the appeal decision.

In short, DeLay was convicted of money laundering even though the money was not illegally obtained. That is not illegal, and the judge refused to respond to specific questions (twice) from the jury on that subject.

Boehner Caves to the Cruz Cabal’s Demands
House Speaker John Boehner confirmed Wednesday that he’s going along with the conservative activists’ demands to tie funding to the government to defunding Obamacare. Considering how unpopular that is with voters, it’s a breathtaking indication of how little Republicans have learned.
http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2013/09...
BS, You know-nothing of how DC works do you. Defunding Barack Hussein Obama's signature legislation would be the first thing to do to a lame-duck President.. This guy is and always has been a lame-duck, and a leech in everything he does? Foisted the "Affordable Healthcare Act" which is a tax, on everyone who is lucky enough to have a job. Now businesses are cutting hours, so that their employees are under the required hours for coverage. These Washington bureaucrats aren't as smart as businessmen, that's why they're in Washington? That's why Barack Hussein Obama is in Washington, he's not smart enough to work in business.

You're not thinking it through as usual moron.

You're saying that the thoracic surgeon is going to somehow be interested in taking referrals from a doctor whose patients have no ability to pay__beyond cash? Is that about right?

I have to go but will answer that in the morning. Everybody gets sick. Everybody gets old. Taking care of those two problems should be the highest priority before you are born. Personal responsibility means more then paying your cell phone bill.

You can't get them back on their feet until you first get them up off their ass and work, then the 30 to 40 million will have all the benefits of being you and yours.

The whole ordeal was insane: see this is what can happen to a person when the liberals and democrats don't like you--frankly I am surprised the commie democrats didn't try to kill him. Thankfully he will be able to get his concealed carry permit reinstated immediately.

Just because they save money by paying cash for an office visit does not mean that they don't have insurance for the surgeon, or the assets to pay, up front if necessary.

Each individual should have the freedom to handle their financial affairs in the manner that works best for them.

By the way, even the People's Republic of California does not require the purchase of auto insurance, just proof of financial responsibility.
