Can I Get An AMEN for the Good Doctor?-OR-You'll Wonder Where The Health Care Went

Zaius Nation

Confused about the confusion over Health Care? Scratching your head because we don't have a serious single-payer option in play? You shouldn't be. Look at who's allegedly fighting for your interests. The exceptional Dr. Zauis deserves high praise for his simple explanation.
Money talks. Nothing scummy or unethical to see here folks. Move along.
The only upside to having these high-priced kvetchers running the circus rather than the Rethuglicans is that the Rs would have already passed a more wretched, lard-filled plan which would have set health care reform back several more light years.

In the comments, GOPnot4me nails the situation down further explaining:
"I'm a healthcare pro w/ over 35 yrs experience. Over 60% of our clinic's payroll goes to fighting insurance companies on a daily basis. For that effort we collect almost 70 cents of each dollar billed. That is AFTER the write-down to the contracted fees. So we are getting about 50% of our Usual & Customary fees. And I still don't know what value the Insurance Companies bring to Drs., staff or patients.
Every American deserves the same healthcare received by members of Congress and their families. And if we can't have it, neither should they!"
