    A deeper dive into US healthcare costs…


    Key Points
    Question: Why is health care spending in the United States so much greater than in other high-income countries?

    Findings: In 2016, the United States spent nearly twice as much as 10 high-income countries on medical care and performed less well on many population health outcomes. Contrary to some explanations for high spending, social spending and health care utilization in the United States did not differ substantially from other high-income nations. Prices of labor and goods, including pharmaceuticals and devices, and administrative costs appeared to be the main drivers of the differences in spending.

    Meaning: Efforts targeting utilization alone are unlikely to reduce the growth in health care spending in the United States; a more concerted effort to reduce prices and administrative costs is likely needed.

    Twice as costly, many worse outcomes, lower life expectancy, and only 90% have coverage. And tRumpKare (GOPKare) promises to make it all worse.

      Let’s just say that you have no idea about heath care cost, much like your lack of knowledge about most everything. Health care cost are driven by the government at multiple levels. Almost all cost are indexed off Medicare. Private insurance uses Medicare as a starting point on contracts with doctors and hospitals. Doctors and hospitals are given a schedule of approved charges that they must follow or they are arrested for fraud. This means that even if you change nothing or consistently too low, you have broken the law. As too results, pure bull.

      As a thought experiment, look at fed expenditures in higher education versus tuition over time, now look at fed expenditures on healthcare versus cost. Look at average outcomes over time for both. Now look for free riders funded over time in both systems – admins and support staff in both higher education and healthcare – what do you see? What conclusions do you come to?

      • Jeffery says:

        We conclude that Americans spend twice as much as other advanced nations on healthcare per person. The JAMA article pointed out that the US healthcare system spends much more on administration and support than the systems of other nations.

        The other wealthy nations have various types of systems that are government regulated. They cover all their residents, with good outcomes, for half as much per person.

        We spend an extra $1 trillion a year, every year, transferring $1 trillion from the working classes to doctors, insurance companies, pharma companies, device manufacturers, hospitals, investors etc.

    An Illinois contractor bidding to build President Donald Trump’s wall on the Mexican border was among three men arrested Tuesday in connection with the bombing of a mosque in Minnesota and the attempted bombing of a women’s health clinic in Illinois.

    Michael B. Hari, 47, was arrested and charged Tuesday in federal court in lllinois with possession of machine guns, but the federal criminal complaint reveals that Hari will likely face much more serious charges.

    According to the complaint, Hari and two accomplices — 29-year-old Michael McWhorter and 22-year-old Joe Morris — were responsible for the bombing of a mosque in Bloomington, Minn., on Aug. 5, 2017, and the attempted bombing of the Women’s Health Practice in Champaign, Ill., on Nov. 7.

    Confidential informants told the FBI that Hari said he would pay McWhorter and Morris $18,000 for their participation in the mosque bombing…

    We report, you deride.

    Sorry, but the scientists who conducted the study have more credibility than you.

    Do you think they neglected to blame Medicare because they get NIH grants and wanted to protect their gravy train?

    Another Gun Just Went Off In A School
    There were no injuries. This time.

    By Sebastian Murdock

    How well will it go when even less well-trained people have guns in school?

    A good guy with a gun accidentally fired his weapon at a Virginia school on Tuesday.

    The Alexandria Police Department said it responded to the shooting at George Washington Middle School after a school resource officer “accidentally discharged his service weapon inside his office.”

    No one was injured and the officer, who has not been identified, immediately contacted his supervisor and school staff, according to the department’s statement. Police are investigating the matter.

      “school resource officer” with firearm = local sheriffs deputy assigned to the school

    So a Dem, in a gerrymandered solid GOP district (which the courts have dissolved anyway) where tRump won by 20 points, is in a dead heat with the Repub. The GOP poured millions into the race, tRump visited, Baby Doc visited (wearing a hair net). And it’s a dead heat.

    The tRumpitistas will lose the House in 2018. What does it mean?

    In a 2007 radio interview Stormy Daniels said she’d been banging the married Don Juan tRump about twice a month. tRump was married to Melania at the time and son Baron was about 1 year old. Daniels DID say of the three famous men that were porking her at the time that tRump was the best in bed, so there is that.

    Just keep telling yourself, that like you, he hates Black men and gets off seeing Mexicans in handcuffs.

    “He hates blacks and like seeing Mexicans in handcuffs”. Translated, means J ran out of facts to argue. Surprise. And by the way, that would be Mexican invaders, not Mexicans.
