Please, oh please, Adam West for president and Sarah Palin (or Michelle Bachmann) for VP. A ticket that would go down in roaring flames!!
Per my conversation with my own physician and my neighbor who is a nurse practitioner both in a medical clinic associated Mercy Health Services. When I asked if they were seeing greatly increased patient loads, they both shrugged and answered there seemed to be a few more people but nothing that was giving them any problems. There are about 10 physicians, PAs and Nurse Practitioners in this group.
I can think of lots of medical situations that are completely preventable. Type 2 Diabetes is completely preventable by diet and exercise. Auto crash injuries caused by drunk drivers are 100% preventable. Foot trauma caused by sticking your foot under a lawn mower is completely preventable. Where are you going to draw the line????? I will repeat, society needs to decide what medical procedures/treatments are the accepted norms and require that insurance pay for those costs. The people most qualified to decide that are doctors, not politicians. As for Mud's accusation that this is a call for government micromanagement, someone has to set the standards, would you rather that insurance companies set that standard?

And your comment is, in a nutshell, one of the major reasons why women don't vote Republican. Hard to believe...you're not married!

Quote from the article "There are three demographics that are seemingly tipping the scales in favor of Sen. Pryor: They are independents (48/41), women (55/35), and African-Americans (85/6). " These are the reasons why Cotton is behind. Your message cannot appeal to a small subset of the electorate, eg-old, white males and expect to win general elections.
The article states that the faculty passed a measure asking the administration to rescind the invitation, that would take a majority of the faculty members, probably more than the 50-60 you speculate on. Where did you pull those numbers out of? As far as Snooki, no opinion. I wouldn't walk across the street to hear her. If you'll notice, my first point was to Rutgers for inviting in a controversial commencement speaker.
What is it about unpaid rent that people don't understand? Cliven Bundy doesn't own the land his cattle have been grazing for 20 years and he refuses to pay the rent. Why do idiots with guns (I'm referring to his supporters) think this is acceptable? Do they drive their trucks up to a gas station, fill the tanks and drive away? Do they refuse to pay their electric bills and think they can keep using electricity?
By all means, let's hold these hearings and when they're completed, let's schedule hearings on how the Bush administration took us into war with Iraq by citing false and misleading information. 4500 dead US soldiers, over 100,000 dead Iraqis and a failed country left. Bush and Cheney should be in prison by any measure.

I fully agree that Ins execs like the extra business they will be getting and hospital administrators are looking forward to having to eat less of the ER costs since more people will have insurance to pay for and preventive care to cut down on the number of visits to the ER. As for your comments on physicians, you better join the 21st century. Physicians don't deal with paperwork, they have administrators and clerks to do that. The overwhelming majority of new Drs aren't going to be hanging up a shingle somewhere, they will be joining a network as an employee. Someone else is responsible for hiring, insurance, records etc. including a standardized list of tests and procedures that will protect them against malpractice.

Corrected on the date. I was thinking the 2016 elections and the new President won't be sworn in until Jan 2017.
