Now when I was in grade school a debate required at least two differing view points. Back then a debate involved trying to persuade your opponents to your way of thinking with well reasoned arguments. Arguments such as, try it you'll like it or just trust me or sit down and shut up didn't really fly then. Back in the day you were actually expected to know in great detail what you stood for on your side of the debate. You were expected to be able to articulate your arguments to any who asked for an accounting of your position on the issue. I guess that's all changed now.
But enough of me lamenting this new hope they don't notice while we change everything definition of "debate". Let's actually talk about this current push for health
For years there have been attempts to shine a light on where the money goes that gets paid out for health care. How much did that throat culture cost? How much for that MRI? How much for the office visit? How much does your family doctor get for seeing you in the office? How much goes for office expenses?But these measures have always been deemed anathema. I wonder where we would be now if people had a clearer view of where their health care dollars were actually going.
It would be nice wouldn't it if someone who was pushing these bills would take the time to enumerate what's in them and explain why they are all so for them. I'd really like to hear from the people who wrote the bills whoever they may be. Declaring that we need health
