re: #104 PT Barnum

I think there are some who would prefer to see a better way of paying for things without going to a full blown government run healthcare system like Britain has.

I personally am in favor of the government acting as a clearinghouse for processing payment and the government acting as a reinsurer for the private insurance industry with additional regulation to eliminate the abuses in the current system.

One of the biggest costs for doctors is wading through all the paperwork required for each individual provider. If the industry would standardize and perhaps come together to decide on a single interface for doctors, that would go a long way toward reducing costs.

the paper work is IMO a result of over regulation… I just don’t see the government making it better.
