Blanket statements like this always piss me off to no end. For several years I worked three jobs with no days off except Federal holidays because the family health insurance offered by my full time employer cost 7 times more for support staff than it did for lawyers who were paid a minimum of 5 times more, and the deductibles were higher for support staff. The alternative would have been to leave my child uninsured. Hawaiian vacations and tennis (spelled with 2 n's, not three, Doc) clubs had nothing to do with anything.


one of the Cool Things about the 'healthcare puzzle' is there's enough 'special interests' involved they can each blame someone different ...

liberals blame the Ins.Companies who blame the hospitals who blame the nurses

conservatives blame the lawyers who blame the doctors who blame the patients..


=b
...... firmly in the Pogo-AM-Cliff camp wrt blame
