..........Free enterprise is great.

I bet you can remember when it was possible to call your doctor, go in the same day or the next day, get time with the doctor and pay your bill before you left. And carried a health insurance policy for catastrophic health costs.

To: Cincinatus' Wife

When I was born, the doctor came to my house to deliver me.

My older brother has in his possession, two receipts totaling $25, that the same doctor charged for delivering him, my parents couldn’t afford that much all at one time.

I’m 65, brother is 73.

On the flip side of that coin, I have two brothers who died in infancy before I was born. It wasn’t that uncommon in those days.
