On Magazine rates state medical groups
wislady - was that at Mercy? The emergency room was where my problems first started. I can understand your frustration on this. It is insulting to the patient to be treated this way, followed by huge bills and a "We did nothing wrong so get lost" attitude.
After well over three decades of being a Mercy system patient, we are seriously considering switching to Dean when our current contract is up. While there are some very nice people in the Mercy Health System along with some top notch doctors (I really hate to leave these doctors who are so good), they have systemic problems in some departments where a lack of concern about wrong diagnosis appears to be widespread. I can no longer live with the suffering that they allow because of the arrogance and lack of concern by some doctors in some departments. I will also let Mr. Bea know the details of why we left if we do so - and it will not be a heartwarming letter.
On How we can honor our veterans
Older than I thought - this should have read "I think the best way to honor a veteran is three fold:"....sorry about the extra post.
As an old non-combat veteran, I have given this a lot of thought over the years. I thing the best way to honor a veteran is three fold:1. NEVER start or enter in to unnecessary wars such as Iraq2. ALWAYS take care of the physically and emotionally wounded veterans (and their families) no matter the cost – it is part of the cost of the war that the veteran fought for you and your family.3. ALWAYS understand that veterans were following orders under extreme physical and mental conditions and deserve our heartfelt thanks along with the benefit of the doubt in what they had to do.If we do not want to pay the full cost of wars – don’t enter in to them.
On Wis. voters face tight Senate, presidential races
Ezoner - you response had NOTHING to do with my question so I will repeat it: "So under your theory, what is the optimim tax rate to maximize revenue? Is it 0%? And please don't tell me that you don't know because if you do say that then you have made a statement that is baseless. Specific percentage please." As you spell out your theory pretty clearly, you must have data to back it up, right? Or is it really just your opinion?
Ezoner "The reality is -- when you increase taxes, and its been shown over and over and over again (because the dems wont give it up), revenues drop." So under your theory, what is the optimim tax rate to maximize revenue? Is it 0%? And please don't tell me that you don't know because if you do say that then you have made a statement that is baseless. Specific percentage please.
On In which state is beer king?
JohnWicket - great post!
On Value over volume: Health care changes on horizon
MercilessCare already rations healthcare - know that first hand. I can't wait to be done with them but that is where I am stuck for the time being. Raising an issue with them is totally useless as they just ignore you. They have a LONG way to go if this is an effective program.
On Nuns challenge Rep. Ryan with bus tour
"The U. s. Conference of Catholic Bishops is not out of step with the Vatican. They criticized ryans so called budget proposal as not in line with Catholic teaching. Should he leave the church?" NO!!! He needs to spend more time in church and actually listen.
On Fight over Wis. maps cost state $925K
wislady - so if Democrats would only agree to everything the Republican Tea Party wants, we would be OK? May I assume you agree with this Tea Party Senate Candidate?
"The tea party Republican candidate who defeated Indiana Sen. Richard Lugar (R) after six terms in Tuesday's GOP primary says that his definition of "compromise" means that Democrats will have to come around the the right's way of thinking.
"What I've said about compromise and bipartisanship is I hope to build a conservative majority in the United States Senate so that bipartisanship becomes Democrats joining Republicans to roll back the size of government, reduce the bureaucracy, lower taxes and get American moving again," Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock told CNN on Tuesday.
"What I hear you say is you are not going to compromise," CNN host Soledad O'Brien observed. "In fact, the only compromise you'll do is really getting other people on the other side of the aisle to your side of the aisle, which I guess is the definition against compromise."
"It is the definition of political effectiveness," Mourdock replied."
