US sets new record for denying, censoring government files
US sets new record for denying, censoring federal files under open government law
By Ted Bridis, Associated Press
-even the AP is getting tired of the admistrations "openness"
once again you fail to understand the proposal being put forth. but, I will bite....... the government and those wish to advance personal/ party politics do very little well with the tax dollars they are entrusted with, private/public compaines are much more responsible with money than the government will ever be...... my simple answer -- the individual over the collectivist
why change the debate from healthcare to the economies? Rodent II, you have already lost. Keep your mind on topic..........
25 years from now..... history will be kinder to them than when the failures of the current administration come to light after the internal documents get unclassified and released to the public.
You are lazy... go to Eurostat and do some comparisons of numbers (grain of salt the numbers are not based of the same set of criteria between countries, so you will have to do some work on your own to dig down and make the numbers comparable). Re read the article, and see what the limited data sets the authors Reich quotes as "proof".
anarchy in a general sense (lawlessness) not an political ideology sense..got it. I've spent so much time trying to explain to Rodent II political philosophy, I zeroed in on the concept not the practical aspect of the word.
bee "All of your healthcare providers raise their rates for paying customers to cover the ones who don't." question for me or a-i-n?
Rodent II gor to Eurostat and check your facts fior your headline. The author you stole from ROBERT B. REICH, is "talking" his book and taking a very narrow view of the world.
read "An Anarchist Guide to Critical Thinking" -vs- and then read "President Obama Begins Second Term by Outlining Progressive Goals" ................. the two ideologies are unamiable
along the "lines of still out"... look to see how th Euro's define a live viable birth vs this country that count every live birth. Change the matrix so the result appear better than they are to the masses. The highest expense in health care at the moment is child birth/care followed by the aged.. since other single provider changed the metrix and have total control over spending...what get cut 1st? what measurement of efficacy will be used? will be people be able to vote with their feet and find a better source?
depending on the context of "still out". Fundamentally think the ACA is a government over reach and bad law. A single entity controling the price (monopoly) is not good for the customer. There is no way the promises politicians will make in regards to "great health care for all" can be met and corners will have to be cut to make ends meet....... whether it is limiting services, restricting payment levels to providers, hidden taxes on drug and medical device companies, or price control measures (look how well those did under Nixon or Wage control under FDR). Shifting the cost center to a different cost center is not reducing the cost. Bottom line for me is if it can have POLITCS played with it, it is bad for the comsumer.
two data point to look at and what makes up the euro data set v the us data set....1) "terminal" patients defined and treatment, 2) infant mortality rates. US data sets are vastly more inclusive of all cases where Euro sets exclude many sub sets of the "population" that make up those sets. The ACA was sold in part on "bad" data as to why the universal care system has better outcomes than what existed before the ACA.
but since the ACA was modeled after plans from other countries, some data can be extrapolate from their experiences. Make sure when you go to site stats from the other countries you do an apples to apples comparision. The Euros, do not used the same base line as US data.
try reading "unpacking the medicare shared savings proposed rule geography and policy" for a better over view of the challenges and why there is lack of "real" data to make the claim you make above.
you are working too hard.........go have a drink and find the $2 russian, you need the stress relief.
" and thus set in motion more than 10 feet of sea level rise." ---- Rodent II you should be in favor or this, all the poorer folk that could not afford sea side homes, now get a "redistributed" wealth effect of higher property values and a "view"...........or are you just trying to protect the rich elitist ocean front property holders......
