I bet Paul Krugman does not choose this particular form of audience participation again...
Seeing idiot-savant Paul Krugman undressed so thoroughly is funny in a way, but the sad fact is it doesn't matter that socialized medicine is known to suck and be disliked by people everywhere it has been implemented. The likes of BHO, H2O Teddy, and Madame Speaker don't want to do what they're doing to make American health care any better, they want to do it to have more control and power over their fellow citizens. That's what makes them evil.
Did he, Mr. Nobel Prize winning "economist" Paul Krugman, with his infinite wisdom, predict or sound any kind of warning about our current economic situation? Now this brainiac wants us to take his word on on national health care. I am not buying what he is selling. He is a fraud.
LockerRoom says socialized medicine is "disliked by people everywhere". Do you have a citation for that? Perhaps you have a stricter definition than the conventional one.
SR talks about waiting list. Well, try this waiting list on for size: In my adopted foreign country (where I lived for 5 years and birthed 2 children), I could see any doctor I wanted, on that day, simply by going to the doctor's office, getting a number, and waiting to be called (and yes, you can go home and come back later). At Princeton HealthCare recently, out of half a dozen doctors, all of them were booked for months, except one who had a cancellation the following day. Perhaps if I were chronically ill, I'd get better access. Then, after a test at Princeton Radiology, I get like two unexpected and extra bills in varying amounts weeks afterward, one of which is rescinded immediately upon my questioning it. The whole thing was a farce, except for the doctor, who was decent.
I don't get it, you get a doctor to see you the very next day after developing your complaint and then he forgives the bill and, for all that you're upset enough to push him into mandatory state servitude?
Thank goodness he forgave the bill; I hate to think what your idea of fair punishment might have been in that event! Guantanamo, maybe?
