Federal agencies usually end up converting most of their funds to personnel over time. Maintenance is delayed and then they cry poverty.

Got notified today that our company health costs are going up by a hefty margin. We were told that all the extras mandated by social engineers are wreaking havoc with the rates.

Free healthcare is being bantered about as the cure all for our predicament. Most of the proponents would in the same breath advocate open borders. Maybe we should start with a math class followed up with Econ-101.

Moral outrage at it's finest. If we are serious about helping others let's look out our door. This is the Ute's tribal land. We vigorously defend it as our own but we are but mere squatters. I think that charity begins at home, maybe the authors of this article could come up with a meaningful solution to start making amends and put some skin in the game right here where it counts. This is an opportunity to throw politics aside and belly up to the bar.

Those who are very smug and opinionated when it comes to politics in my observation have no credibility. I have grown tired of pay to play politics on both sides and Trump is at least a hope. He will be swimming upstream as big money wants to continue the gravy train,

The last that I heard, had the U.S. ski team taking all injuries directly to Germany, not considering any other treatment.

On the other hand many later in life suffer poor health mostly due to poor choices. This makes it hard for those with foresight to understand why they should take up the slack. ACA did not address the inequity and it was DOA. If we continued we wouldn't have anyone willing to insure period. This is not easy, might look at the waiting lists in the single payer programs, no free lunch.

For all those who envy our neighbors who have mostly subpar health care, albeit free, Trump is having a discussion about why they don't pay their defense bills. Maybe if they covered our bills we could be just like them. Obamacare was designed to fail and then they could pick up the pieces and proceed with a green light. One problem "Trump," and now we will try to develop a plan that works. One thing that will be a relief is the lack of theatrics, at least from those in power. One constant will be the omnipresent "guilt trip" that we read every day in the media trying to create an emotional stampede to massage the feelings of those with little else to hope for. Impeachment is the remedy when all else is lost.
