Re: Nobody but Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

I am chronic patient with a kidney transplant, if I have to list them the 21 pills, 6-8 meds It would take while. Second, Why in the world Lab tests are so horrendously expensive if your do not have a health care insurance and health cares insurance pay 10% of the bill. I hate most LabCorp and the other one Quest. I called couple times to get my bill reduced as I did not have a health insurance before Obamacare and both did not want negotiate their bills. What a shame. Same labs work, I ordered at an illegal-residents serving clink and I paid $115 instead of bill close to $1,000.

Claiming that you are an illegal resident or acting like one, would save you 90% of the lab work bill and your Dr visit is just $35.

Regardless of who is paying for health care, why the US pays 2X per person more than the next modern country.
Because, in socialist medicine countries. Health care providers are state employees and paid 1/3 ot 1/4 of its counterpart in US.
Specialty doctors are self-employed millionaires who can retire after 10-15 yrs of work (age of 50). The most successful ones would establish a practice and can hire associates doctors and retire at age of 45. Nothing wrong in that other than there is no effective competition between doctors.
Do you seriously believe the high cost of health care is your doctor's bill? My wife's doc gets paid almost nothing but her chemo is $100K per month. Drug companies and hospitals are where the cost is.
The Doctors compensation is just an example. A couple hours visit of my 4yrs old son to the ER cost me $5,700. An illegal resident would pay no cent. This is another example. The aggregate is that the whole Healthcare system is unbalanced, overpriced, and tons of waste. Hospitals are for profit orgs and Health insurances are also in the same boat. Drug Cartels are in charge of the boat of gold.
Till date, the e-record system is not in place. Each time I go to my doctor, I get asked about my meds and med history. It should be in the e-record system. Why I am asked? Don't you have access to my e-record system? It should be law in effect by 2014. Drs are paying penalties instead of upgrading their IT systems.

Re: Nobody but Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Single Payer System? 35% of GDP is spent on Health Care services. Federal Taxes burden is less than 20% of total GDP. So, if Feds would have to pay for the health care, they have to impose 3,500 billion dollars each year in new taxes. So, Tax burn would be 55% of the GDP.
That an idea the stupidest person (Ocasio-Cortez) would never understand.
