“Medicare overpays on meds by hundreds of millions.”
The investigation mentioned in the article seems to be pretty objective and reliable…unfortunately, corruption at its finest.
@ The Health Care article. With the incoming wave of baby boomer, it seems that health care will continue to be a big market. I wonder how this will play out even though the health care sector is not governed my market principle and continues to bleed other sectors of the economy.
Medicare overpays on some things and underpay on others. Prices are set my MedPAC so when a fee is set correctly it’s arbitrary. What may be a fair price in one market is either too much; or too little in another. Price fixing just insures some procedures are over-performed while others are under-performed.
It’s very interesting to see how much controversy a tree can cause..
<Portland to cut down giant sequoia for bike path.
The article doesn’t give specific details, but wouldn’t be easier just to find an alternative?
And if there isn’t one, there still dozens of Sequoias left.
So, would it still be a flawed system if it takes thousands of dollars from Americans every year but creates more jobs?
I keep saying it. We need to eliminate fraud and corruption before we make any adjustments in fiscal policy. Entitlements must be reformed and Medicare/aid waste must be reigned in first.
Isn’t part of the point of biking to enjoy nature?

Im not big into environmental causes, but cant they do a little crisis management and build the bike path around the tree? In a elementary sense, the tree WAS there first.

Really don’t understand this. Seems contradicting as one of the prime reasons to bike is to enjoy nature.
On the bike bath business:
I’m all for supporting bike/walking paths in metropolitan areas, but the point is to enjoy nature and have a healthy commute to work. I’m sure that this article is leaving out a few important details, but it does seem odd that no one – especially in nature-loving Portland – could figure to move the bridge around the tree.
