Excellent interview again with him.
Why would he call you kid?
Nice interview, Kid! :-p
Duncan Hunter is about as real as it gets! Looks like he is enjoying his retirement. Good for him!
Duncan Hunter even goes on way beyond the time he said he had to go, and...I'm re-posting this paragraph, because it is such a GREAT way to EXPLAIN it in PLAIN--EASY TO UNDERSTAND---LANGUAGE!!!
SOOOO many Congressmen do NOT know how to talk to regular people...they're all lawyers and when they finish talking you say...."What did they say???"
DUNCAN HUNTER RULES!!! - READ THIS AGAIN:
DH: Yeah. Well the problem with all of the healthcare proposals that the democrats have made, that the administration has made, aside from being unconstitutional, is that the most efficient transaction in a free market economy, the one that provides the best cost to the consumer, is a direct line between the consumer and the supplier, in this case, the doctor.
And the more people, whether theyre bureaucrats from the government or even third parties in the private sector, ie insurance companies, lawyers, and other non-health providers who are injected between the consumer, the patient and the doctor, the more expensive the care is going to be.
So if you can imagine the American consumer extending a dollar to his doctor, in the old days, the doctor would receive that dollar. Today, there is a lawyer who stands between the doctor and the patient. Lawyers get a certain percentage of every medical dollar spent through lawsuits and through the recovery on malpractice cases. You have insurance agents who receive a certain portion of that dollar through their premiums, and where you have government programs, you have government bureaucrats who receive portions of that dollar. And for every government bureaucrat who basically applies regulations to the medical profession, to that relationship, you have a counterpart in the private sector meaning doctors have people in their office who are essentially administrators and clerical people who are necessary now to fill out all the forms, do all the paperwork, and administer to the bureaucracy, and to react to and interact with the bureaucracy that is forced between the parties.
So instead of having a direct relationship between you and the doctor, you have, literally, a whole crowd of people who are grabbing part of that health care dollar. That is one reason while health care is so expensive. So the problem with any of these managed care proposals is they all become very inefficient because of the number of people and institutions interjecting themselves into the relationship between patient and doctor.
Awesome. Thanks for the ping.
LOL, I admire a man who has his priorities straight--good interview...
I really like DH. I know he has to be loyal to the Republican Party, so he wouldn’t comment badly about them, and I would be suprised if he endorsed the NY Conservative candidate, but I did enjoy him calling out Newt for towing the party line, supporting a lib.
Excellent, my FRiend. Thanks for the ping.
With all the bad stuff happening under this administration, WHY is Hunter depending on you for info?
He doesn’t seem to REALLY give a sh!t to me.
