“A lot of people watch the kardashians and jersey shore, but that does not make them quality shows. Yeah when it comes to most watched, fox is #1 among cable news, but it comes to quality, fox is dead last.”

“The parallels between Fox News and the Kardashians are striking. You might argue that they both "look good," but there is no substance under the theatrical makeup.”
My brother is a radiology technician. He performs MRI scans on patients. He tells me that he has to do many scans per day on people who DON’T HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE. He has to because they come straight to the emergency room and the hospital and doctors can’t turn them away. It costs the hospital around 1000 dollars per regular scan and around five times that for brain scan depending on the complexity of the scan. That’s thousands of dollars a day or even tens of thousands a day.
That’s one radiology technician, one 8 hour shift, one department, and one hospital. Can you imagine the cost for the entire hospital in 24 hours, and then all the hospitals in entire country?
And who pays for all of this, you guessed it, you and everyone the tax payers. I BELIEVE THE HEALTH CARE REFORM WILL FIX THIS BROKEN SYSTEM, and hospitals and doctors will have less stress to deal with.”

“My mother is on Medicare. Has about 9 doctors. Every doc she goes to orders their on tests from their preferred lab. Why? To avoid law suits and trust and lack of communication in the system. This will not change no matter who pays for insurance.”
