how about these yiddish curses for republican jews, via krugman…
I’m mad as hell, and I’m not gonna take it anymore!
Let me post a question: In the light of a New York Times article: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/08/22/business/economy/rationing-health-care-more-fairly.html?partner=rss&emc=rss, if you were in charge what amount would you set the maximum cost for a year of treatment that (insurance or the taxpayers) would pick up. Note that in either case the cost is divided among all the participants in the plan. It should be noted that other countries use something lik $41k, I might go 50k for the US.
This rationing will occur either by insurance company rules or government rules, either being rationing.
Actually let me make the question more clear how much should the maximum cost be for a treatment that extends life one year?
And lower now
