Venezuela?

A couple that hosted a foreign exchange student from Venezuela told me that she completed Medical School and was going to go to work as a MD in that socialist heaven, and guess what her starting salary was going to be with the mandated system they use there...$97 per month.

 

Guess she is in some other latin American country now doing manual labor to try and pay her bills.

 

Isn't Socialism wonderful, though?

Re: Venezuela?

Exactly.   You know Canuck etal gloat about how high priced our medical care is, there`s a reason for that...it`s the best.  People from India come to US medical schools, US drug companies develop pharmaceuticals, the top brass of the world come here for healthcare.   The rest of the world rides on our back getting cheaper drugs, then mock us for our expensive costs after they rip us off.

Re: Venezuela?

well, with Cuba opening up, maybe the limousine liberal types that gloat about how well their medical system works will take their vacations there for a few nip and tuck surgeries, too.

 

They can report back and tell us bumpkins how that all works out.

Medicare/Medicare accounts for 32% of government spending, up from 9% in 98, racing toward 50% and beyond.  

 

The problem will solve itself, and it won't be pretty.

I think if you look at the charts the mid 90's is were the slope really changed.   Regardless, what can't continue won't.  It can't continue.

There will have to be attrition in costs. As long as costs are the driver, coverage policy will follow.  With the obligatory nashing of teeth and rending of garments.  Policy will follow right out to the end. 

 

To which I don't disagree will come.
