    What liberals do not get about economics, basic stuff really

    Obama says he is going to bring more into healthcare. I don't think he believes that but that was the sales line, extend care for millions.

    Well in any reasonable term of time, resources are pretty static. What happens when resources are limited and demand for those resources increases materially? Do prices go down, as Obama lied they would? Did he not know better?

    • Hawfaeces is so stooopid about economics he can barely spell the word- of course the reason is that he never had time to study economics what with his efforts to pick up those doctorates in chemistry, mathematics, civil engineering, climatology etc etc and all that post doctoral work he did

    • What i do not understand is how countries like denmark, sweden, finland, switzerland etc. can you free health care and in some cases free schooling including college and yearly have the happiest people living in that country. In the states we can not provide that, guess they are smarter than us. Please explain how this happens. Thanks

        That is the tip of the iceberg as to what you don't understand. first, as the subject line notes, the basics: Do doctors, and teachers work as slaves without pay in those countries? Answer: NO, ERGO those services are NOT free, moron. What are the demographics of those countries? How many crack babies. Is there populace pretty homogenous? How widespread are specialized services? Are there big problems with ethnic specific diseases? Are the industrious types within those countries happy with the system

        Please explain how this happens.

        They are trained and willing to pay for more and settle for less in private life, not bad, not good, just different.

      • You don't understand, or you don't want to understand? Sweden pays an 80% fed tax!...Norway, 79.3% tax rate, Denmark 83% rate, Finland 75% rate. And they will continue to raise their rate, and corruption will continue to rise. That's what you want? And lousy care on top of that?

    • What's important is you feel good about yourself.

    • When you intentionally eliminate competitive policies, and strive for no competition, you end up with increasing costs, poorer care, and runaway corruption,,,,that;s a basic fact all conservatives understand, and leftists don't want to understand.

    • You don't seem too clear on the concept of commercial medical insurance, moe.
      Try to find better source material to parrot, your stupidity is hanging out pretty badly lately.
