re: Market failures of the current US healthcare system - pngtiger
Very well said! I'd like to add I've run into problems with appy's and gallbladders and imaging. Insurance companies have started withholding payments if you perform a surgery with no confirmatory objective data (I.e. Imaging). You can have a clinical diagnosis, have a suppurative GB or appy, ha...

re: Market failures of the current US healthcare system - pngtiger
Tigerdev, to address you point of access for the needy There are churches, non-profits, etc. popping up all over the place that are offering lower cost health insurance, albeit with fewer options to location and providers. Hopefully as these pools grow, they'll be able to get access to more place...

re: Market failures of the current US healthcare system - pngtiger
As someone who is fully immersed in the crap, I agree with most of these points. 1: taking the consumer out of the equation and giving it to a 3rd party lead to massive cost increase. Look at the current problem with higher education. His first point also brings up a common thing when trying to ...

re: Something else you flooded folks need to worry about - pngtiger
That'd be very, very odd. It normally takes years from exposure until symptoms first appear, and then a year or longer to actually die from CJD. And how was he exposed during Hurricane Matthew? He'd have to eat infected neural tissue, not just regular beef. If there was an infected cow, there wo...

re: Biden to GOP: Go ahead, repeal Obamacare - pngtiger
[quote]PAGator[/quote] Like most of what you said, but one critique: price transparency. The amount paid depends on the contract between the insurance company and the office/hospital, and is based on a percentage of Medicare allowable. It doesn't matter if office A charges $100k while office ...

re: Thoughts on what to do with unexpected tax return? - pngtiger
I had an LLC and paid quarterly estimated taxes, based on the previous years numbers. Usually in April, I have to pay an extra $20k, so don't think what I'm withholding is the problem. Basically, I closed shop and moved to a different city (with my new wife), and in the process, took a huge loss on ...

Thoughts on what to do with unexpected tax return? - pngtiger
Have received a large tax return from the IRS (filed in october). Trying to figure out what to do with it. Have life/disability taken care of, Roth is maxed, have money in mutual funds and long-term stocks. Only debt is a vehicle I purchased last year at 0% interest. Planned on saving a small po...

re: NASA's "impossible" EM Drive actually works though in violation of physics - pngtiger
who wrote this drivel? Assuming the same shitty journalists following politics. 1. It does not violate newtons 3rd law, which is for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, or simply force in = force out. It even states it in the article: force in is a megawatt and force out is 1.2...

re: It's funny seeing Trump and his supporters claim a rigged election this year - pngtiger
what's really funny is Libtards have no clue why trump is getting this much support. They think, "oh this doesn't exist at all, and when it does it's so minuscule to even worry about". Then they show this type of stuff, totally disproving their original premise. When will y'all realize this isn't ab...

re: What punishment could Florida get? - pngtiger
It's not the fact it's being cancelled, it's because it took them this long to figure it out. Hell, UF campus has been under mandatory shutdown starting at 5pm today, since yesterday, abd it was moved to 3pm this morning. The hospital is starting disaster shifts (everyone comes in and stays until wh...

re: Qalo rings available in BR anywhere? - pngtiger
I ordered off amazon, it's like $20' so not a big hit if I didn't like it. Now I wear it except when I'm going out. Already lost the first one (2 months after getting it, which is why I wear it preferentially cause I knew I'd lose it). Would go a size bigger than your actual ring. My wife went w...

re: Why do people look down on Andrew Jackson, but praise FDR? - pngtiger
Simply, biased history (it's all biased, I know). American history taught us how great fdr was and how everything he did was wonderful, especially the new deal, and how it was all the republicans and greedy capitalists' fault that the crash happened. They also taught that Jackson was known for the t...

re: New article on the welfare cliff, and how shitty the public policy was designed - pngtiger
Well, in this scenario, income would be guaranteed to $30k/year. If you make over, you do not get subsidized, and the amount of subsidy is dependent on your income. So, while the total population is 320 million, the population over 18 is 246 million. If you include all incomes under $35k (that's...

re: I'm traveling to the swamp need hotel help - pngtiger
Late to the game here, but I'll opine. There are a bunch of hotels right off I-75 on archer road. Don't know if they'll have vacancies at this point but you can still try. I've stayed in a few of them; they've been nice and staff has been great. There's quite a few places to eat/drink almost with...
