    OOOOO ill have to get the larry king podcast of this.



    LET THE INS comp's COMPETE. If a CT company offers me a good deal on bottled milk, I can legally drive from NY over to CT and buy it. . . .

    . . . . Not so with INS companies. Its illegal for me to purchase ins from an out-of-state company. This point was also brought up on MEET THE PRESS last sunday.

    As usual the other two kind of marginalized him because they couldn't get how it all ties in to monetary policy.

    So, what was his solution to health-care?

    Give everyone guns and let the problem solve itself?

    That's the Darwin party solution!

    We already have several government-run socialized medical services like Medicare, medicaid, VA, etc. Medicare even works to a degree. The problem is they're broke. Correct monetary policy to make the dollar stronger and cut back on inflation, cut down on the size of government to free up a few trillion dollars, and maybe they can be funded properly without having to go and set up a whole bunch more bureaucracy and build another system that will also be underfunded.

    i wish....

    either that, or we could just do away with govt funded healthcare altogether and let everyone fend for themselves. if you are sick and cant afford it then you can die i guess? wasnt that how it used to be?

    As much as I was against him due to his foreign policy issues in 2008, if the election were held tomorrow I would probably vote for him. The government needs a reality check...

    That's the opposite of his idea, he's pretty much argued against those two things for the past few decades. If it were up to him, we'd never print another single dollar, paper or digital (other than replacing worn out ones, but heck, he'd probably let that go for a while to, to decrease the money supply for a bit). He's even for the idea of competing currencies. Put the market in a market so it can maintain its own value.
