    ideology and parroting of right-wing talking points

    the world exists outside of your brain, and operates differently from how you've been brainwashed to believe by right-wing financial media

    • "ideology and parroting of right-wing talking points"

      Oh really? Maybe if you broke free from the tyranny of your left wing talking points, you would be intelligent enough to recognize that most people on this board actually work in the healthcare business!
      We care about it as we see how good it is on the inside, and how utterly capable the government is in screwing up everything it touches.

      I guess all the the brainwashing by the right wing financial media has falsely led me to believe that once Americans perceive healthcare to be free they will access it like there is no tomorrow. Further brainwashing leads me to conclude that there will not be enough money to sustain this demand, which will lead to either massive tax increases and/or rationing.

      Please help me as I simply sell these devices and cannot think clearly about this world outside my brain!!!

    • referring to this fantasy:

      "It is wrong. Look at Canada or England. Both countries run out of money by mid year and nobody gets any joint. Moreover, based on what the Government is willing to pay, margins decrease and so does innovation. Orthopedic surgeons will leave the profession because they continue to work harder for less. Universal healthcare would be a disaster. "

      • The only reason socialized medicine works in Canada is because Canadians with money can travel easily to the US for their healthcare. Zimmer is having enough problems without having Obama making it worse. We are closing down production for 3 weeks over the holidays. The Company line is that we are reducing inventory. The reality is that we are trying to figure out how to pay the DOJ $50 million per year. The more we get taxed, the more innovation suffers. We couldn't get a new product out right now, even if we wanted to.
