Do you get so upset when someone has a dream team of lawyers to fight their murder case (OJ) versus those that only have a public defender?
Apples...meet oranges. What am I...a public defender. Do you think I'm inferior in my clinical skills to you?
I applaud Jindal for living within our means. The country should take note.
Yes...let's live within our means. Screw poor people...and those who try to deliver health care to them (and are even forced too deliver care to them).
Be responsible for self and pay for your own health care.
Yes...because health insurance is SO cheap! If a person makes 20 k a year...and has a family of four...it'll cost them 600-800 dollars per month to buy a HIGH deductible plan. That's roughly 40% of their income being spent on a HIGH deductible plan that provides them little to no benefit until they reach their 5K deductible!!! Once they hit the deductible...they're covered for the rest of that year...but they'll have spent 16k on health coverage. That leaves them 4k to live on.
Look...I'm a doc...you're a doc. We're doing pretty well...so I don't get killed by my high deductible plan, but it's just not practical to say..."Be responsible for self and pay your own health care." When you say that, you clearly are showing that you are numb to math.
