Nope…

That’s because you can’t cite it. I’ll consider you have conceded on this since you can’t cite it. Time to move on.

No…I will not concede because you are being a moron. There IS nothing to cite. I am making a universal statement. I am saying…(now listen closely) “Medical procedures are provided at a lesser cost if the patient has insurance.” Does that make sense? It is a fact. You got it?

OK…baby steps. We will start there. A simple true or false will suffice.

Now, after you answer “true” to that statement, you will realize that having 11 million people not insured would not be the most cost effective way to provide medical treatment (which they will receive anyway in some way, shape or form at taxpayer expense).

(If you don’t reply as though you know exactly what I’m talking about, I will ride you unmercifully all season about how Manning had the ball for less than 15 minutes all game and still beat your pathetic team on their home turf. EASILY!!!).

    Now your just getting nasty!!!! If Ted Ginn Jr. catches that pass in the end zone then none of it would have mattered!!! That was a tough game to watch.

    Ok, let’s start with a few things. Because you cannot find anyone on the entire internet to agree with you should be your first clue. You asked why I even have insurance. Well if it only covered the emergency room then maybe I wouldn’t. Your premise: “Medical procedures are provided at a lesser cost if the patient has insurance.” This statement may be true but it doesn’t mean that the total spent on medical costs for the uninsured will go down if we give them insurance. Understand. Let me say it again. It doesn’t mean that the total spent on medical costs for the uninsured will go down if we give them insurance.

    So let’s start with the basics.

    Does emergency room care cover prescriptions. False. That’s a big chunk of the industry. See any drug ads lately? How many different prescriptions do your grandparents and parents have. I know mine have a ton.

    Would an emergency room do a colonoscopy, mammogram or any other expensive type of preventative treatment? False. My colonoscopy was 4k. Not done with anyone who shows up to an emergency room.

    Does an emergency room provide radiation treatment or chemotherapy or dialysis? False, false, false. These are very expensive treatments that all can run in the 10’s of thousands of dollars.

    How about a knee replacement? How about mental health. How about end of life hospice care? How about prenatal care (except for the birth?)How about a large percentage of the procedures done on a daily basis.

    Think about all the things that an emergency room cannot and does not offer uninsured people.

    There are alot of ways to attack this problem and strangely enough, Obama has chosen not to use ANY of the ideas that the Republicans have
    presented. Take a look at what has been suggested and ask yourself why none of these ideas have are part of the plan.
