Where to begin? Talk about your target-rich environment. Kudos to Mr. Hogberg for limiting his comments to anything less than 10,000 words. Now that’s willpower!
Mr. Moore should be pleased with healthcare in the U.S. if he wants profit taken out of the equation. Over 80% of hospitals in the U.S. are not-for-profit and with an average patient care margin of -2.8% are clearly losing money by caring for sick people. Mission accomplished for Mr. Moore. And maybe a brilliant mind such as his should begin looking for cures for things such as obesity. After all, we spend billions of dollars and thousands of our best and brightest scientists are working hard to find cures. Or so they say. Bunch of slackers really need Mr. Moore’s astute leadership to get cracking on that cure for cancer. Come on, Mike! Help us out. We’re dyin’ here! Maybe the government could spend more money on healthcare research. Oh, wait, didn’t some president double the research money his first year in office? Hmm, his name escapes me….it wasn’t Bruno…oh, it was Bushy McChimphitler. Or maybe I could just whip out my tricorder and zap all the Lyme disease in the world. What a maroon.p>And lastly, insurance companies do not keep you from getting medical care. They may not pay for it, but they don’t deny your doctor from doing anything. Plus, Mr. Moore may want to check out “60 Minutes” and their report within the last 2 years on insurance companies saving their patients thousands and thousands of dollars in doctors and hospital fees. Don’t worry, TAS readers, 60 Minutes presented the story as hospitals trying to take advantage of poor people. On the other hand, the government can deny you from getting medical care. But I’m surprised that Mr. Moore would be for that since he’s probably in the target group that would be second in line for rationing, the first being smokers. Eh, he probably didn’t think that through. Wouldn’t be the first time. br> — Andrew Macfadyen
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
