I heard about this doctor that set up a community group with patients and other doctors. People pay in a small amount, and he uses his buying power to get super discounts on drugs and minor surgery, care, etc. Everyone wins. Then they buy inexpensive (high deductible) catastrophic insurance for major things. It's saving seniors, and lower income folks a lot of money. Why couldn't we set up little groups like that all over?




You mean a cooperative?  Get out you damned Commie!

Interesting to see what I have missed by avoiding Facebook and not having TV. 


Facebook: where every complex issue can be reduced to a funny picture and a one-liner.

Yea, because everyone knows guilty people are always indicted and convicted...

You need a few elements to get a conviction.  Prosecutorial zeal helps.  And evidence.  Given the anti-elite sentiments currently in the air, combined with the overwhelming amount of convincing evidence available on the internet, it doesn't look good for this particular ring of pedophiles.  All that's needed now is a victim.

Hey Steampunk-


It wouldnt be that hard really.  Loads of Drs are being strangled by the present healthcare climate (and much of that is due to their own health insurance being so obscenely high now with the other part being cut fees down to the bone by all insurance carriers led by medicare) combined with prohibitively higher and higher taxes.  Too many people with their hands in the pie, left the Dr with nothing, so they are absolutely at the end of their rope.  Therefore, the doctors would be easily available to a town or community that could get so well organized.  Its an excellent idea, sir.  The catastrophic part could easily be taken care of through, which offers the most inexpensive catastrophic coverage available.  Boom.  Easy.
