re: Thank you Ole Miss - SmackoverHawg
I was having a shitty day. Kicked everyone outta the house and just was down all around. THEN...I happened to check TD in a drunken stupor an thought I might be hallucinating. Even wondered if I had died and my good deeds had actually outweighed all the bad shite I've done. Still alive I think....

Nutt isn't just the "quarter back killa", he's the program killer. First Arkansas, but he has apparently perfected the technique an executed it on OM. We warned y'all. :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao:...

[quote]Who is arguing to remove all profit or monetary incentive? I haven't seen a single person in here arguing that. [/quote] Single payer will result in socialize medicine. It may not be called that, but that's what they have in Canada. The system is broke and too expensive. I'm not argu...

[quote]Well, without the ability to push them into a walk-in clinic they can utilize, you just increase the risk to society. [/quote] Walk in clinics aren't worth a shite.

re: Single payer as a model in other industries not related to healthcare. - SmackoverHawg
I'm ready for socialized medicine. I've busted ass, made mine, paid off my shite and got some put back. I'd basically be retired as a gov't doc. You wanna see productivity drop? Remove profit incentive and see what happens. I'll go from 40-50/day down to about 4. Now those four will be very wel...

[quote]Maybe set the compensation for walk-in clinics better [/quote] Really? For treating single issues over primary care that has to track their meds, vaccinations, etc and is penalized (not incentivized anymore) if they don't meet a myriad of bull shite "quality" standards? Sounds great!!! B...

[quote]and full disclosure, i'm a staunch single payer guy, as you probably would have suspected by now.... [/quote] Not a fan, but I do think a well managed, not for profit gov't option would put those private insurance bastards in check. Then they would have to step up their game to survive. ...

[quote]Y'all are ignoring the real effect a repeal only would have on millions upon millions of people, not to mention throwing the insurance industry into chaos. Voting on purely ideological grounds, with no concern of what the resulting impact would be, is just not responsible either politically o...

re: Medicaid expansion has not reduced ER visits, multiple links inside - SmackoverHawg
No one takes adult Medicaid. Pay is shite. It's going to have to reimburse waaaaay better to entice anyone to take them. It pays about half of Medicare rates to primary care. Giving them "insurance" fixes nothing....

[quote]The only "new" proposal the Dems will vote for is something that saves the ACA. The Republicans will then be proven to be worthless. If that happens, Trump should veto the bill and go to war against any "Republicans" that went along with that plan. [/quote] I honestly don't know how it can...

re: This is how you get Republicans Voted Out of Office - SmackoverHawg
If they'd make insurers pay us without so much damn paperwork and hassle, I'd be able to charge at least half as much as I do currently simply by reducing my staff by half or more. People cannot fathom how much of their healthcare dollars go to non-healthcare related activities. And it's been wors...
