“What an admirable man and leader. I'm not even Catholic, but I find him to be an incredible human being.

“No, that is not the point.  The point is that we spend much more on health care in this country while covering fewer people and having poorer health results.  ”

“A trend that clearly started back in 1965; the same year we launched Medicare and Medicaid.  There were no other health care laws between then and Obamacare to even come close to the magnitude of the social security reforms of 1965.  Your denial of the correlation between the two events is about as intelligent as arguing that "No Child Left Behind' is not responsible for the trend of poorer and poorer SAT scores every since the bill was signed.”

“There's quite a bit of truth to what you're saying. Most of us receive medical treatment without knowing the cost of what we're getting. The assumption is that "the insurance will pay," but of course we're the ones who pay when our insurance rates go up the following year.

I recently had a minor, benign skin condition treated. No one - my dermatologist, the billing specialists, the nurses, the office secretaries, or even my insurance company - could tell me how much the procedure was going to cost. Can you imagine such a thing in any other sector of our economy? Buying a car, only to find out how much it costs three we weeks later when the paperwork is finally processed?”

“Your post is a perfect example of someone not seeing the forest because of all the trees.

Or going to Mount Rushmore to check out the trash receptacles and fence posts in the parking lot.

Missing the point.”

“The point is we launched a huge medical bill in 1965 to make health services affordable to everyone... and from that year on health care costs have spiraled out of control.  Ignoring the correlation would be like looking at our deficits during the Bush years and saying "that has nothing to do with Bush policies".”
