Huh?

Now that proposition requires a tad more definition.

i will just use one easy variable: access

the access to the top doctors will be limited. we are already seeing this with many top guys turning to boutique practices

losing access to doctors, let alone successful/great doctors, will lower the standard of care for those who lose access

Why yes, that is the precise goal. Obama, his advisers and the Democratic party got together and decided the standard of medical care in America is just too damned high. They decided to do whatever they can to make sure healthcare providers delivered substandard care. You nailed it.
Sadly, that is the truth.

The only question is to degree of intent.
I'd argue that unquestionably to some degree (perhaps considerably so), it was/is intentional.

Do you think our care is really 50% better?

Yes. And not only is it better, but the innovations and advancements made by the American health care industry are responsible for the higher quality in the rest of the OECD countries.

Plus, we only get better by pushing the boundries of what we can do. NICU is a perfect example. We can successfully care for increasingly premature infants that just 5-10 years ago would have had no chance.

In New York there is discussion of not paying the costs of cigarette users or obese people to save the system money. But we are not going to call the committee a "death panel" when they make the decision to deny health care.


No, it would be imprudent to call it "Death Panel".

But, yes, at some point, if we go to single-payer, it does seem that fatties and tobacco users are going to be denied some medical care.

The cost of government provide healthcare is going to have to go down, and with it standard of care. It's unavoidable.


Standard of care will go down b/c the inelastic supply of providers will be flat or reduced with much higher demand.
Also, many of the best doctors will leave the profession or remove themselves from the available pool for the same sorts of reasons that many of the best teachers remove themselves from the public system.

the goal is actually is to no longer pay for a standard way higher than what we are receiving.



Shouldn't your line of thinking apply to taxes, too, and the piss-poor results from our education system?

Increasingly, care characteristics and decisions are being determined by administrators devoid of any clinical background or training.

Obamacare furthers that.

Please remove head from your ass. The admins have always made the decisions, always will make the decisions. Friend of mine needs a PET scan to find out if her Lymph nodes have cancer, the admin of her insurance says they can't authorize it unles she has cancer??? Classic.

Not true. At all. Patients used to make all of their medical decisions. Of course, they used to pay the bill, so they had that power.

When "someone else" is paying, "someone else" makes the rules. This a natural consequence of ceding responsibilty for one's own healthcare.

and when the gov't gets enough people signed up on obamacare, they then get to make the decisions.

Or maybe the standard of care in the US isn't really as good as you think it is, and the goal is actually is to no longer pay for a standard way higher than what we are receiving.


I agree that we pay too much for what we receive but that first part is wrong.

Go to a top 100 hospital and receive care. Then go to a government run hospital and tell me which one has a higher standard of care. We've had government funded hospitals forever and generally they are horrible. What makes you want to see this quality of care across the board?


For Baton Rouge locals, just think of Earl K. Long hospital and how big of a shite hole that place was.

Tell me, would you rather go to Earl K. Long or Our Lady of the Lake? That's just at a local gov't level. Think of how shitty a federally run hospital would be.

Exactly, except these stupid bastards actually believe that by adding more non payers to the government healthcare system, this will somehow, increase quality of care. All while not adding a single doctor more to the staff.

So silly on so many levels. Like they say to fecal transplant donors, thanks for the contribution.
