    ^^^ If money is the root of all evil, why does the preacher on TV want all of mine? A fool (sheep) and his money will soon be parted.

    If you take a look at *real* religions, they are truly hurting to fill ministerial positions as the millennials are increasingly agnostic. If you want socialism and free healthcare, sign up to be a priest! In all seriousness, they are in such short supply that churches in this area have every priest covering 2-3 parishes at a time.

    Art you must of forgot about "Jesus dome" around the corner already huh ? or the fact that JW Watchtower was just dwarfed by the new Tuxedo Park compound........or the fact that Curious George is in fact "pumping water"!

    IDK ............

    vreihen: One time offer - If you need more money (and if your soul hasn't yet been sold) - come and talk to the DV52 bank. Very reasonable rates, all clients very satisfied and thus far all have retained their knee caps when requested to pay (the secret to zero bad debt is a couple of guys with good negotiating skills and base-ball bats)!!

    Don

    PS: My suggestion (and I'm not providing financial advice) is to sell now and "put your shorts-on" - the "trump bump" might be a bit more "bumpy" when discussions turn to the promised tax reforms!!

    I bet that there isn't a baseball bat within 100km of your home!

    Seriously though, the only debt that I have is the house mortgage. (15 year note, 2.65% interest, paying on a 10-12 year schedule, should be paid off completely in 6 years knock on wood.) I have no vehicle loans, credit card debt, etc.

    I learned a YUGE lesson back when the bubble popped from a few retired people that I know, who actually had to go back to work because their retirement accounts were decimated. The retirement company's advisors that I have met with are usually scratching their heads looking at my unconventional investment strategy, but it is based on lessons learned from others' mistakes and not maximizing returns through risks like they were taught in bean-counter school.....

    It isn't tricky at all. Single payer creates the largest possible risk pool, largest possible buying-club, and cradle-to-grave responsibility (no "churn") and therefore creates the best long-term outcomes at the lowest prices. Unfortunately we as Americans have developed a habit of electing people who proclaim "government is broken and can't be trusted, you see, I'm breaking it and I can't be trusted". What if we started electing people who were not actively trying to cause damage?

    Nowhere, because it's a lie. You're being aggressively sold this image that if you could just buy insurance from a different company in the next state over, that would be better. That's exactly how it won't work. There aren't that many insurance companies, and the larger ones are already present in almost all states. Instead, what will instantly happen is you'll buy from the exact same company, doing business out of a PO box located in a state with insurance requirements most favorable to them and least favorable to you. Hint: look at your credit card statement, the address will be in SD or DE.

    Interstate competition in the current environment isn't insurance companies competing for customer benefit, it's different states competing for insurance company benefit. And insurance companies will purchase new legislation in their interests by dangling a few hundred call center jobs or something in front of hungry state governments. There are certainly benefits to doing healthcare at national scope, but that isn't it.

    Well Said Jason very well Stated......... /\ Single pay is the most fair and should be done while further tuning up regulation in care centers, the pharma, & a defined fee schedule etc.

    Now I'm not saying that DR or private hospitals can't play on their own, but I think if they choose the private route, they cant get any help from government at all.

    Insurance is the real alleged racket............

    Here's another one:

    http://www.kilgorenewsherald.com/sto...rograms,112978

    Public (taxing) school, projecting over 1/3 million dollar revenue shortfall next year, cuts three academic majors to save costs.

    Don't miss the part about how they pay for retiree health insurance! How do I get a job there?

    "KC Board Secretary Karol Pruett reminded the trustees and the audience members about the board’s responsibility to be good stewards of public funds."

    Good stewards of public funds (and I'm talking to government as a whole) do not pay for retiree health insurance or any other benefits not widely available in the private sector.....

    Andy, for Trump to win re-election, he does still need to win the Republican Primary in 2020, and I'm really not sold on that being a foregone conclusion. Heck, he might not even remain president through 2020. He's got a target on his back (figuratively). Every group in the game has people who want him gone from the FBI to the tree huggers.
