My version of health care reform :-)
All medical providers change their billing...
Those with health insurance pay $1000
Those without health insurance pay $100
That simple step applied across the board would cut out the cost of all the health insurance skyscrapers and offices, all the salaries of the health insurance workers, all the retired insurance agents collecting kickbacks on policies they wrote, all the long distance faxes and phone calls back and forth to get permission to treat patients, and so on............ It cuts out the red tape cost of the insurance companies.
I know, none of my ideas are popular......... but do the math.

We have found the enemy and it lives in the DC Whorehouse, a place where the denizens care only about their personal power and continued enrichment.
