Who do People say we have a Health-Care Crisis…when there is not?

Question by CanWeBeReal: Who do People say we have a Health-Care Crisis…when there is not?
Here are the simple facts in American Health-Care:

In 1950 only 18% of Americans had Health Insurance

In 1960, 23.5%
In 1968 45.7%
In 1978 63.4%
In 1980 71.2%
In 1990 82.2%
In 2000 84.34%

That’s the last year for the % data….the rest is a guess

The very poor have 100% coverage through medicaid..they always have for years.

The cost of Insurance has gone up around 4.3% each year Nationally)…not much off the inflation rate.

So you maybe asking…where is the crisis. in one word “LAWYERS”…yes lawyers like Sen Clinton who have sued doctors for millions causing them and hospitals to pay HUGE sums of money to protect themselves from lawsuits that people file because a band-aid was put on wrong….this cost BILLIONS…the real cost in health-care!

FACT: The number ONE $ $ Contributor$ $ to the Democrats is The Trial Lawyers Lobby

Get the picture

Say NO to Hillary!!!!!!!

your thoughts please?

Last year data available you don’t look hard do you?
By several measures, health care spending continues to rise at the fastest rate in our history.

In 2005 (the latest year data are available), total national health expenditures rose 6.9 percent — two times the rate of inflation (1). Total spending was $ 2 TRILLION in 2005, or $ 6,700 per person (1). Total health care spending represented 16 percent of the gross domestic product (GDP).

U.S. health care spending is expected to increase at similar levels for the next decade reaching $ 4 TRILLION in 2015, or 20 percent of GDP (2).

In 2006, employer health insurance premiums increased by 7.7 percent – two times the rate of inflation. The annual premium for an employer health plan covering a family of four averaged nearly $ 11,500. The annual premium for single coverage averaged over $ 4,200 (3).

If that’s not at crisi level you must live in na na land

Are there many unanswered questions about a Health Care bill that’s about to become ” Law “?

Question by The MobFather: Are there many unanswered questions about a Health Care bill that’s about to become ” Law “?
Will the current Bill do any of the following:

1. Allow me to build my own policy and not have to pay for things I don’t need or will never use?

( My sons and I will never need a pap smear, nor give birth, don’t want a hair transplant and will never use the alcohol/drug rehab plan) Yet I am forced to pay for that coverage because of law makers. This vastly increases costs)

2. Do anythin at all to lower the cost of Malpractic Insurance (One of my Dr pays 70,000 / year for liability coverage which is covered by his fees) ( Trial lawyers have nothing to lose. Most cases get settled no matter how ridiculous because the lawyers never have to pay court or legal fees. Easy Fix = Loser Pays all court and legal fees of both parties) That 70,000 will be drastically reduced, and the cost savings passed on.)

3. Lower my monthly premium ?
How can it when Ins companies are now required to cover more people, even with pre-existing conditions. Premiums can only go up. And they are forced to cover basic stuff like minor doctors visits when people should be able to pay for that out of pocket.

Other questions about this “reform”

4. If they are required to cover pre-existing conditions, what prevents people from canceling coverage all together and using the money saved for basic medical care? Then get the insurance only when/if you need major medical care?

5. What will happen when Ins companies go out of business? ( See above question) Will the Gov option be the only option?

6. When the gov has control of how much a doctor or a hospital can make per procedure, what will that do to the number of people willing to enter the Medical field as a profession.

6-B God Forbid, but what if Doctors are forced to join a Gov Union like the SEIU ?

7. (Combined with above) When adding 30 million more people to the system thereby vastly increasing demand, how will the supply side look?

8. When supply gets overwhelmed with demand,how can rationing be avoided?

9. What will happen to our coverage when the government decides it needs to “reign in costs”.

10. What “life-style laws” will be passed in the name of “protecting us” from ourselves?

11. Why can’t people “shop for the best price” like they would anything else.

12. Why will we begin paying for this “reform” next year, but the “benefits” won’t be available until 2013?

Q&A: Is there any truth with this newspaper editorial and Immigration ?

Question by new name: Is there any truth with this newspaper editorial and Immigration ?
Immigration policy is ‘udderly’ unworkable
By Birch Faber and Brad Hash
The Idaho Dairymen’s Association recently launched a new effort to promote immigration reform, the Times-News reported Feb. 21. “Immigration reform is important to the economy of Idaho and the United States,” an association official told the newspaper. “Our goal is to protect the borders but also to promote responsible immigration reform.”

This effort by the dairymen is one more example of how states, communities and industries throughout the Rocky Mountain West are forced by economic necessity to assert leadership in the nation’s dysfunctional immigration system.

The failure of the federal government to create a realistic pathway to permanent residence – or even to develop a functional guest worker system – has left many Western businesses struggling to adequately staff their operations. The dairymen’s association in December hired a prominent immigration lawyer and formed a business coalition to “push for stable immigration policy on a national level.” It was just a month earlier that Border Patrol agents arrested more than 100 illegal immigrants in the Twin Falls area. Many businesses, especially those in agriculture and the booming construction sector, rely heavily on immigrant labor. Among those laborers are 20,000 to 35,000 undocumented workers in Idaho, according to estimates from the Pew Hispanic Center.

Illegal immigration is a serious problem. But it’s just one symptom of the real malady – an immigration policy that doesn’t serve our nation’s needs and threatens to undermine prosperity in the West.

Idaho’s dairymen are not alone in their desire for reform. For example, ranchers in Colorado who depend on seasonal guest workers are shorthanded because permits for would-be employees are frequently delayed, denied or unavailable due to unrealistically small annual quotas. In order to combat the labor scarcity, Colorado lawmakers have proposed the creation of an office in Mexico to recruit guest workers, a policy that would challenge the federal leadership our immigration law anticipates.

Arizona is also coping with a severe labor shortage and is considering its own temporary worker program. These efforts are examples of states forced to patch problems that the federal government fails to resolve.

Job growth throughout most of the Rockies has for years exceeded the ability to fill them with American-born workers. Our region’s economic prosperity rides on the availability of workers. Federal law, however, makes lawful immigration virtually impossible for many of the workers we need.

The United States allows a mere 10,000 people with “essential skills” to obtain work visas yearly – a tiny fraction needed to fill the jobs waiting for people with those skills. Legitimate businesses run great risks as they attempt to operate on the receiving end of failed immigration policy.

Existing immigration law also makes no provision for most of the undocumented workers in our region to obtain work visas. They’re here illegally because there’s no legal way for them to take the opportunities our economy offers.

As willing workers are increasingly denied access to vacant U.S. jobs, significant losses for businesses are mounting throughout the Rocky Mountain region. The current system forces industries and states to pursue stop-gap remedies. But the solution isn’t to add special exemptions for particular industries like agriculture – we’ve already done too much of that and the results have contributed to the present quagmire. The solution is to comprehensively fix our broken system of immigration so that the best way to immigrate to America is to do so legally and so employers can count on legal immigrants to fill jobs for which there are no native-born workers.

Answer by Yak Rider
It’s totally false. Employers who pay low wages and offer no benefits have always had trouble filling those jobs. If they need workers the best way to get them is to pay better wages and offer benefits.

Q&A: Do you think whenever “scientific” studies are published to the general public, there is a hidden agenda?

Question by Poyzin: Do you think whenever “scientific” studies are published to the general public, there is a hidden agenda?
For example, this moronic study http://www.aolnews.com/health/article/study-in-singapore-links-sugary-soft-drinks-and-pancreatic-cancer/19348936?icid=main|main|dl1|link1|http%3A%2F%2Fwww.aolnews.com%2Fhealth%2Farticle%2Fstudy-in-singapore-links-sugary-soft-drinks-and-pancreatic-cancer%2F19348936

Claims sugar causes cancer – if the sugar is in the form of soda pop. So you find out where the study came from and it’s from the government of Singapore – the country that whips you with 7 foot long Ratton canes soaked in water on the bare assss if you spit on the sidewalk.
You obviously can’t trust THAT study.

Similarly, the global warming scam – government-sponsored “scientists’ using back-filled data and 100 iterations to reach the pre-determined “conclusion”.

The cell phone cancer scare, funded by trial lawyers, salivating over the next “asbestos” type lawsuit lottery.

It never stops. Should we conclude that all “scientific” studies that are widely published on lowest common denominator sites like AOL and Yahoo news are fraudulent?

Best answer:

Answer by Ratz
Uh, no, that study is not “published” to the public, it’s published in a science journal ( http://cebp.aacrjournals.org/ ) and reported on AOL. You aren’t a very good reader as the study acknowledges,

“But the study isn’t a definitive answer. Out of the 60,000 individuals studied, 140 developed pancreatic cancer. Of those, 18 cases occurred in patients who’d consumed large quantities of soda, 12 occurred in those who drank soda occasionally, and 110 occurred in those who never consumed the sugary beverages.

In their analysis, the researchers acknowledge that the small numbers limit the power of the data, and “giv[e] potential to a chance association.” The team also cites four previous studies that found little or no connection between soda and pancreatic cancer.

There are a handful of definitive or suggested causes for pancreatic cancer, making this study even more difficult to interpret. Aside from red meat consumption, smoking and diabetes, risk factors include genetics, ethnicity, old age, obesity and even excessive alcohol consumption.”

Is there a “no post” list similar to the “no call” list so I can keep my e-mail address and not worry about?

Question by delux_version: Is there a “no post” list similar to the “no call” list so I can keep my e-mail address and not worry about?
SPAM! I know there are tons of anti spam, anti ads, and the like, but I just wish I could cleanse my account of these constant ads. I don’t want to contact my alumni, I don’t need a divorce lawyer and I am very happy with my equipment down there thank you very much! I buy one thing and give them my e-mail address and now I’m hit with 10 spam per hour! Arrrrrrg!

Best answer:

Answer by susan w
So far, for 4 years, I have been able to stay almost completely free of SPAM, but Yahoo catches it for me. If I ever see an email from someone I do not recognize, I usually spam it, especially if there are mis-spellings or if the file is large.

There appears to be a safe way to view a tiny bit more of the email without getting anywhere near opening it. I simply go to the Search Email and type in the person’s name or whatever the comment line says. It quietly brings up a short paragraph. This has saved me more than once. Maybe it is not completely safe, but nothing has happened.

Now for keeping your computer and emails clean. I would first check my Security settings. I only allow cookies from sites I have visited, I shut down my computer regularly, so that I am signed off the internet. I never select the option “Remember Me” and I regularly do a “Clean-Up” to keep things running smoothly. As follows on my system, but yours probably will be different.

“Delete Cookies”, “Empty Cache”, and in History – “Clear”
Shut down computer. Wait 30 seconds. Start (not restart-it is different!)
Sign in anew, and having taken a few security precautions, you should be able to be rid of most of the stuff that flies at us through the internet.

You might set up a secondary email address, for surfing the internet, that you just do not open, except to verify information on an order.

Good luck. Hope this helps you.
