[quote]To treat a non-paying patient, you have to use staff, beds, pharmaceuticals, equipment, etc. The healthcare provider has to pay to provide all of these things. You can bet your hat that paying patients are sharing the burden of the non-payers.[/quote] That was my point. Demographics of the...

[quote]We really weren't. The underinsured (read: Medicare/Medicaid) are the true over-utilizers of ER services.

I'm not sure it's bad. I think it's way too early to tell. I'm curious how long that steep dive will persist before it plateaus. Hell, you're nuts if you think we insured weren't already paying for the uninsured in the ERs in one way or another. ...

[quote]I just love how the opposition to the fence is the cost to build, maintain, and monitor. It's almost as if the liberals really believe it's cheaper to let south America's poorest flood into the U.S. You have to be either intellectually dishonest, stupid, or the perfect combination of ...

That ship has sailed. We obviously cant and wont deal with it, now its going to cost us billions today, and wh...
