Barack Obama, our next President

<quoted text>
Single-payer national health insurance is a system in which a single public or quasi-public agency organizes health financing, but delivery of care remains largely private.
Currently, the U.S. health care system is outrageously expensive, yet inadequate. Despite spending more than twice as much as the rest of the industrialized nations ($8,160 per capita), the United States performs poorly in comparison on major health indicators such as life expectancy, infant mortality and immunization rates. Moreover, the other advanced nations provide comprehensive coverage to their entire populations, while the U.S. leaves 51 million completely uninsured and millions more inadequately covered.
The reason we spend more and get less than the rest of the world is because we have a patchwork system of for-profit payers. Private insurers necessarily waste health dollars on things that have nothing to do with care: overhead, underwriting, billing, sales and marketing departments as well as huge profits and exorbitant executive pay. Doctors and hospitals must maintain costly administrative staffs to deal with the bureaucracy. Combined, this needless administration consumes one-third (31 percent) of Americans’ health dollars.
Single-payer financing is the only way to recapture this wasted money. The potential savings on paperwork, more than $400 billion per year, are enough to provide comprehensive coverage to everyone without paying any more than we already do.
Under a single-payer system, all Americans would be covered for all medically necessary services, including: doctor, hospital, preventive, long-term care, mental health, reproductive health care, dental, vision, prescription drug and medical supply costs. Patients would regain free choice of doctor and hospital, and doctors would regain autonomy over patient care.
Physicians would be paid fee-for-service according to a negotiated formulary or receive salary from a hospital or nonprofit HMO / group practice. Hospitals would receive a global budget for operating expenses. Health facilities and expensive equipment purchases would be managed by regional health planning boards.
A single-payer system would be financed by eliminating private insurers and recapturing their administrative waste. Modest new taxes would replace premiums and out-of-pocket payments currently paid by individuals and business. Costs would be controlled through negotiated fees, global budgeting and bulk purchasing.

Single payer would free business from having to pay for employee health coverage and allow for more expansion and higher wages.
You're an idiot Jane.
Health care is expensive because not everybody pays for it. Doctors and hospitals constantly shuffle their overhead costs from indigents (deadbeats without insurance or money) to the saps with insurance. Illegals show up in emergency rooms for trivial procedures because they know hospitals are required to see them, whether or not they pay.

Also contributing to the problem are the tort lawyers, suing anybody in health care for billions of dollars.

The problem would go away instantly if medical care providers were not required to provide any service to anybody without the means or insurance to pay for it. Young people would be suddenly inspired to get insurance before they go skiing. Health Savings Accounts would pop up everywhere, with folks that don't want to pay for the insurance company overhead.

Insurance companies compete to provide the best coverage for the lowest cost. I got a kick out of your assessment of how the gubbermint would manage cost, cut bureaucracy, lah-dee-dah. Come on, leftie, name ONE gubbermint function that comes in under cost and on schedule. They are the people that gave us 16 TRILLION in debt, you want to give them more responsibility.

You're the idiot.

Suffer the pain of your undisciplined bullshit, reading your deranged shit NJ raider, or suffer the pain of regret..

The DNA of the democratic party is inbred with hate, ignorance, and racism. Mass killings by Democrats or Chicago ghetto style killings from the "culture of violence" are not by angry old white men clinging to their guns and religion. The inner city ghettos and projects of modern America and preserves are the breeding ground 'Blue Magnets' of hate-filled liberalism, racism, poverty, abortion, and killing fields of blacks.

The inner city ghettos, projects, and urban preserves of modern America are the breeding ground 'Blue Magnets' of hate filled liberalism. One Hundred plus years of YOUR culture of violence NJ raider, racism, bigotry, ignorance, poverty, abortion, America's killing fields of blacks. YOU still have not told us How or Why that has continued to happen?

I wish someone had an answer to your deranged hate. Throwing money at it is like throwing Crack at an addict and telling them to go away. They just come back for more...

I support helping the needy. I oppose funding lazy liberals on a government Assisted Living Center or preserve....

Round Rock is a suburb of Austin, TX, where I lived for a long time, and let’s just say that it’s notorious for breeding people who have some wacky beliefs.(The schools are forever struggling with parents who fear their kids will learn witchcraft from naughty books and whatnot.) That said, what this woman is peddling here is widely believed in the anti-choice community, with the majority and probably vast majority of devoted anti-choice nuts believing this conspiracy theory. Here’s how they imagine it goes:


•Planned Parenthood, being an evil multi-billion dollar corporation (evil, unlike oil companies or defense contractors, whose profits are Jesus-approved) needs to keep the abortions coming so that its stockholders can swim around in their big vaults of abortion cash like Scrooge McDuck.
•Sadly for them, young and unmarried people, when left to their own devices, rarely, if ever, need abortion services.
•Why? Well, because they have no interest in sex, of course! Most young people would never have an urge to put a penis anywhere near a vagina unless they were told to do it.*
•So Planned Parenthood creates propaganda to “sell” kids on sex, enticing them with evil lies about how it feels good and is fun.
•Once the kids start having sex, they’re “hooked”, and therefore are constantly going into Planned Parenthood to get a hit of “recreational abortion“.

Yes George Bush was a shiftless bum, but America didn't vote for him.
Now, he's painting self nude portraits and puppies. The art is so bad, it's like a 5 year old in kindergarten.

This is what people do in an insane asylum; therapeutic painting.

The madman who put us into two wars and spent us into oblivion, delivered the biggest government agency, DHS with 400,000 employees, and the Patriot Act including waterboarding;

All this, and his thin skinned delusional thief of a brother Jeb, thinks he's going to run for President? Why doesn't he get a job instead of continually plotting on stealing from the government?
Another Bush in the White House?
