And since we have proven you wrong so many times, this post is useless and Boring as usual.
Now just like last time, when Right Wingers accused me of being "full of it" when I pointed out medical insurance company executives received up to a BILLION DOLLARS,

I provided the documentation demonstrating that, as usual, I was accurate, and the Right Wingers are clueless.

Now, having established my credibility hundreds of times, if I go to the trouble of providing numerous sources for your edification-
we know you're too busy enjoying those Socialist Security and Medicare Benefits,
will you admit I am the informed source and you're a blowhard, too lazy to do your own research ?

And never have claimed to be a war expert. But, what that man did while America mourned an American ambassador and two other heroes was appalling. MIA during the incident, and hopped AF1 to Sin City for a celebrity filled fundraiser shortly after our ambassador was tied and dragged through the streets. I shall NEVER forget.

Now that I'm "caught up" on reading this thread, it's interesting to note that a certain someone has not responded to posts with questions about "their" tax proposal...
Interesting? Yes.
Surprising? No. You have to know what you're talking about to provide such information.
His/her response of "I'll get around to it when I want", or whatever, is a good indication that he/she has NO CLUE about taxes and may be doing a whole bunch of research to not further embarrass him or herself...
Or, it could be because I was at work till about 8 last night, and was dealing with family/friend issues between posts here last night and am back at work at 7:00 am this morning?

You've just made about 6 posts in a row, every one of them nothing more than insulting people. No discussing facts or positions, no real arguments of any kind - just insulting people. Is that what it takes for you start your day? Is your self-loathing so strong?

That is a lot of money but the stockholders must think that they are worth it. These guys usually make the company at least ten times more than their salary in profit for the company. Funny no one says anything about these sports stars raking in all the money that they do. They get all this outlandish money and fame for doing something they love to do. Wow! What a deal.
I think it is called capitalism. If they do a great job and make the company enough money they are rewarded.
I don't hear people screaming and protesting to cut these sports hero's salary to cut ticket prices to the games. Sounds like a double standard to me.

Who even doubted it? I think that IO's research information on CEO salaries being "accurate and concise"... was determined yesterday.

And don't forget movie actors who may have as their initial salary anywhere from $10-$30 million, but who also often put in participation percentages in their contracts, thus increasing their earnings for ONE movie up to as much as $100 million.(Keanu Reeves in the Matrix sequels top of the list). But no, no one ever comments on how that jacks up movie theater prices for the "little people."

I'm not so sure of that. If you will go back to my up to date 2012 report on CEO salaries POST #5967, you will probably change your mind. I.O. gave a lot of old information.

You must be a CEO and feel much better when defending yourself and others. A lousy attempt, I must add. I know your kind. I've worked with CEOs who remind us all of those greedy, immoral Capitol Hill takers. No different. Sit in their executive office easy chairs, never thinking twice about the little man, the backbone and true substance of these corporations. The wealthier they become, the less connected they are to "real workers" ... we know your kind. We know ALL about their priorities- upside down, backwards and screwed up.

An important difference between a European system and the US system is physicians' salaries. In France, for instance, which is reportedly the best system in the world and not a singlepayer, physicians earn an average salary of about $55,000 per year. American physicians earn around $150,000 per year. One argument that many use to explain this is that medical school is free in France. While this may raise some eyebrows, it shouldn't raise them too highly. Several American doctors go to medical school at little to no cost by agreeing to work in areas that are deemed "under served" for a specified period of time, usually four years. Certainly, the term "under served" implies isolated, rural areas, but such an interpretation isn't necessarily correct. For example, several physicians who choose this option end up working at hospitals in urban, suburban, and rural areas. Moreover, many begin with great salaries, close to the American average for physicians. While some would rather incur debt and shoot for a higher initial salary, say $225 per year, those who choose the "under served area" route realize that in a short time they will be able to shoot for a higher salary.

Needless to say, while many American students begin with a pre-med major, most French students do not. The earning potential for a French physican causes several to go in other directions. It is logical to conclude that the same could be said for American students should the salaries of physicians ever become drastically lower.

A second major issue is malpractice insurance. Given that most policies are in the area of $30,000, if not higher, a French physician wouldn't be able to afford this necessity. How, then, do they survive in France? Malpractice cases do not go before juries nor enter the legal system. They appear before a board that determines whether malpractice has occurred, and payment is drawn from a fund set aside by the government. This suggests that tort reform would help.

These are two areas in which many argue that the French system outdoes the American, but neither system, nor singlepayer systems such as those in Britain, Spain, and Canada, can eliminate the increasing costs of medical procedures and the equipment needed to perform them. Also, nothing will change the realities that these countries have aging populations, governments with limited means to fund healthcare initiatives, and people who want everything possible done to preserve their health in times of grave illness.

I can't help but see any plan as utlimately unable to compete with rising costs. Will not the number of people with pre-existing conditions and those who buy insurance under PPACA only when they are diagnosed with a serious condition eventually drive private insurance providers out of business, leaving the government as the sole provider? How can a cash-strapped government foot such a bill? It cannot. It has been tried in this country in the form of TENNCARE in Tennessee when Clinton considered a singlepayer system in the 1990s. Most would say that this iniative has been a failure, and all admit that the state was on the brink of bankruptcy before the plan was drastically cut.

I don't believe that we should equate "access to affordable health insurance" and "access to healthcare."
