Don Surber nails it in his post – Gazette misses the story.
But the bigger story was this “he received a notice saying he had exceeded his allowable charges.”
So the recipient had to dig up the data to learn the government was getting billed by caregivers that never visited him. Maybe it is too much to expect the government to find such details themselves, but here Don Surber notes the additional fallacy of the presumption on the part of the news paper itself.
That ” … the Gazette noted that this would not happen if we had universal health insurance.” And who would be the source of the universal health insurance?
Obamacare is attempting to be such. It is the government.
In other words, not only would nothing change, it would get even worse.
