because I'm lazy and they're easy to pound out while watching Sabathia and the Yanks make this a good fall.
Scoring the Baucus Bill: Tax Dynamics:
Concern troll wants you to remember stuff costs money, which means we shouldn't do stuff, unless it involves blowing up brown people and their stuff.
Three Books to Change Your Mind:
Instead of laughing at, not with, PJ O'Rourke I'd like to highlight this line from Amazon's description of The Elusive Quest for Growth;
The problem is not the failure of economics, William Easterly argues, but the failure to apply economic principles to practical policy work.And remember, conservative ideology didn't fail, Bush failed conservative ideology.
The UAW's New Conflict of Interest:
To review, executive level compensation being driven into the stratosphere by conflicts of interest isn't a biggie, especially if we're talking about bankers getting rich off bad mortgages their bank never planned on owning long term, but union workers demanding slightly less when they're working for themselves is deeply troubling insofar as a group Megan dislikes is continuing to exist.
Do Private Insurers Subsidize Public Programs?:
Does cost shifting exist? Do hospitals actually use private insurance to subsidize inadequate reimbursement from Medicare and Medicaid? Insurers claim it does, but they would, wouldn't they?No comment from me needed.
"We Will Control Healthcare Costs, Because We Have To":
Once again, concern troll would like to remind you that doing stuff costs money, and ask that you not remember the tax cuts and war she supported which have no relation to any debt incurred providing basic medical care for the American people, nor any relation to our national debt at all.
That's enough for now. The Yanks just won, I think it's time to smoke some pot.
