    You don’t even want to know how much an ambulance costs to outfit and maintain. It’s a lower-mid six figure sum.

  2. Mark says:

    White House is pretty dodgy thru all of this.

  3. PJ says:

    Good for thee, but not for me: Reid exempts staff from ObamaCare.

    Of course he does.

  4. Jacob says:

    I don’t see why Reid’s staff should be exempted. It’s his piece of legislation.

  5. Mark says:

    I do think Issa’s figure is a bit on the higher end. More reasonable projections peg it at $350-500 million.

    I estimate that at least 4 billion of those cellphone calls are my wife calling me to gripe about the dog’s latest antics, or discuss what’s for dinner, or complain about an employee, or to ask if I’m going to the gym over lunch or to see when I’m going to be home after work (I go to the gym every day during lunch and I’m always home from work at about the same time each day).

  7. Martha says:

    I don’t think we’ve focused nearly enough on security at this point. Millions of patients’ private info is out there and if performance is anything to judge by…

  8. Wayne says:

    Took an ambulance at school to the medical center. Got a bill for $700 a week later.

      They’re tricky about that. The Good Samaritan programs don’t cover those costs in their no-consequences advertising.
