  1. Except MM.....it was not his fault because he was learning a new system...
  2. MM too much of a boy scout to sell his soul to the devil...
  3. What the hell is he saying? Having said thet, i wish we had him
  4. Mike, if not Isabella, keep an eye on Hardman from UGA. I think he will be better than Ridley and his speed and size are virtually the ssme as Isabella.
  5. The problem is that people want the best possible healthcare without the costs. It cannot happen. Holding down costs by reducing services and controlling everything is single payer...There is no magic or perfect system.
  6. Now one could say that insurance is too expensive and they would be correct. We should be getting more bang for the buck. No competition for those companies. In fact, in my next life, if I wanted to be rich, I would start an insurance company. Guaranteed money maker.
  7. Actually, that is not true. Most Americans are insured. Most insurance companies have a HMO system whereby you contract/dictate what the hospital and physician make for a procedure. So if Mick has insurance, the doc will get paid the same as if you were the one getting your valve replaced. People tout Cuba. Cuban health care sucks. It does what it can with little and the "doctors" are not as well trained as our nurse practitioners. That is why the recent doctors from Cuba who got asylum in the US fail their medical boards at a greater than 90% clip (compared to the 1960's group of MD's). Castro almost died from diverticulitis, a disease and surgery for which they would have done a better job in Tullahoma than Havana. I will say this, NY Hospitals and the Mayo Clinic are incredibly overrated. Until his recent retirement, arguably the best valve surgeon in the US resided in good ole Nashville.
  8. Yeah, too many times discussion here turns into namecalling etc. health care is a tough nut. Huge part of the economy. A lot of millionaires here in nashville extracting every dollar but docs and patients and nurses get the short end. Any plan or attempt to change or improve would be inundated with lobbying money from parties that would work to keep their profits. I am not optimistic.
