    crammer fails to understand the demand destruction

    as medicare and medicaid get further cuts,there will be further reductions or less hiring by hospitals or doctors as the economic strain will deteriorate the ability to pay or get payed ,in short.

    • huh............was 6 now 15 ..cramer rules commandor drulls

    • I'm not sure your table of economic tides is up to date. It is possible that the cost structure for all medical care will be constrained by the Affordable Care Act, but that is just one current. The real tide that overwhelms that current is coming not just from Baby Boomers' demand for care but from those added to the insured base thanks to the ACA. Cramer was a bit too enthusiastic in his discussion of AHS but the got--I think--the direction right. Short term, the shares could get knocked around, but long term, I think it is a solid position and this comes from someone whose cost basis is around 4.50.

      • im not very good at explaining,let me try again.as many that might be needing care as baby boomers,which will soon begin to die off by the way.smoking ,etc.you will lose those being hired as part time by corp. not offering any insurance.and will more than likely be exempt from obtaining ins. outside the workplace.or print money to subsidize healthcare for people under a certain wage?this is a dog chasing its tail.what kind of ins. would this be?what type of deductable would there be?what about coinsurance?people of middle and low class simply dont have the money or will spend it on luxury.which means doctors and healthcare providers simply wont get paid.it all remains to be seen,i really hope i am wrong.also companies with small numbers and healthy can still opt for ins. pool with a stop lose ins plan,this is in your favor of the discussion,,but the left vehemently wants this idea out.look at colorado....
