You mean the "free market and profit motive" in the United States? The one where medical spending was distorted in WWII to get around wage controls, and has been distorted ever since? The one where if I pay my care provider directly, it's not deductible until it exceeds 6% of AGI, and then only if I have enough itemized deductions to make itemization worthwhile in the first place? You mean the one where if I get employer-paid health care, it's deducted from income from dollar one, regardless of whether I can otherwise itemize? That "free market?"

Ah so it's a classic Libertarian "my utopian world has never existed and thus my position cannot be proven wrong" position. If you really think that the cost of healthcare is rooted in a discrepancy in tax code then you are horribly, horribly naive on this issue and are "letting your opponents have the last word" not because of our "predictable responses" but because you literally don't know what you're talking about. The ability to deduct non-employer health insurance premiums would correct an unfairness but do comparatively little to make healthcare affordable. More apropos to our actual discussion is the fact that no "innovator" has ever been stymied from making profit off of healthcare because of the lack of a healthcare insurance tax deduction.

Many of the Ron Paul fanboys I've known would often make a reference to sometime in the past when everything in the economy just worked.

I could never get any of them to tell me exactly when that was.

REP. WORRIED ABOUT MEDICARE APPEALS BACKLOG — Rep. Jim McDermott (D-Wash.) is sounding the alarm this morning about a massive backlog within the Office of Medicare Hearings and Appeals. The 357,000-appeal clog delays providers from having their cases heard for longer than two years, McDermott noted in a letter to HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. “ “The agencies must review their administrative procedures and act now to protect seniors who are struggling to get Medicare payment appeals addressed,” he wrote. He argued that problems with recovery auditors have been identified as the leading cause of the backlog. http://1.usa.gov/1nCaTGC

Coz said
I don't trust Paul too much, and Hillary at lest isn't a corporate robot like Obama.


Really? The Clintons are the very core of the Democratic party's shift to a corporatist pro-business platform. I'm not sure what world you're living in here.

Coz continued
Obama and his goons have created a false economy based on printed money.

It's true! Inflation is out of control! GOLD STANDARD!!! KILL THE FED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I agree, I rather have a spoiled little rich kid who took drug money from a cartels in El Salvador to start his company as president.

so Coz,

decided not to answer my question as to what Repub you like in 2016?

but took the opportunity instead to repeat what we already know, how much you despise the President

aren't you actually "for" something, someone who best represents your own "values"?

He never said he despised the President! He said he voted for him!! The lesser of two evils is all we got. I voted for Obama twice and I'm rather conservative. Too early to tell who to vote for Norton, get the dicks out of your ear!

edit, some people vote with their heart even though the choices suck ass, and we're in more trouble than any one President can fix no matter who it is.. sad but true

or the other side that they are so clue less nobody wants too.

Like that stupid drug addled nutcase Norton who slithers around in every thread running his stupid mouth about sh!t he knows nothing about.

I like Obama as a person very much and always have.

But as a politician he's not trust-able.

He's under the gun by his masters.

He's also scared they will assassinate him if he doesn't please his masters enough.

You'll see constant evidence that he really knows what's going and subtle maneuvers against his masters.

Too bad it's like this as he's a really cool guy .....

Romney has character?

The guy who held down a kid in school and forcibly cut his hair because the kid was weak and a misfit?
The guy who said 47% of the country are leeching off the govt
Same guy who used other peoples' money to buy companies, load them with debt and run them into bankruptcy or offshore the jobs, while taking a giant "management" bonus for doing f*#k-all besides destroying the company?

Same guy who talked about having it tough in college...because you know, he had to sell some of the stocks daddy gave him to pay rent?

Same guy who claimed he was toughing it out living poor in France while on his mission...where "poor" turned out to be living in a palatial chateau with two servants, chandeliers, and an extensive art collection.

Yeah, what a character.

Rand Paul, seems like a good dude,

really, seems like a good dude, Coz?

and you say this knowing that he said he would have voted against the Civil Rights BIll?

remember that one?

yes good guy Rand, son of Ron, believes people who own diners should have the "right" to refuse service to blacks, jews, Cozs, anyone they want to, for no reason at all

but then, I am sure you knew all that because you carefully take the time and effort to research and get the facts right first prior to forming opinions.....

Cosgrove,

Does waiting for the 2016 Republican slate equal complete abandonment of why you voted Democrat or are you hoping that either party can come up with a better idea and candidate to chose from going forward ?

It's hard to miss Donini's point but like everywhere in the world the centerist masses do keep things even.
