Slumpbuster? Perhaps the Buccos should inquire?

There's also a practice called 'defensive medicine'. Basically, fear of being sued causes doctors to order/perform a bunch of unnecessary tests purely as a CYA measure.


Or being owned by a corporation that gains profit for each test as it also owns the testing facility.

You do know that less than 20% of Hospitals in the US are for-profit facilities, right?

That's the amazing thing - why are hospital stays like 10X what they cost in Europe? And I'm talking the price paid by insurance, not the phoney "listed" price.

Meanwhile, what does Trump want with Canada imposing a tariffs calling us a security risk to the U.S.? Before 9/11, we could cross the border with a driver's licence. Are we going to do threated the American nation by being overly polite? We protect our dairy industry & the U.S. protects its tobacco industry with even higher tariffs & overall numbers. We can grow a lot more of it in the land above Lake Erie but cannot sell it to the U.S. The countries supply chains are intertwined & we are in an import/export deficit not surplus including all goods & services. Even just considering just goods, it's only a Canadian surplus if you include foreign goods coming into the U.S. through Canada.
Meanwhile, we've sent our troops & war equipment to help in all your shitty wars like Afghanistan & Iraq & in 1812 we did burn down the White House but only after the Americans burned Toronto? But he likes the demi-Hitler in North Korea. He also blames us because American drug prices are too high as Canada regulates the drug companies from charging way too much & the U.S. won't. By the way, from a distance, we see John McCain as the great American hero & wish that we have had someone like him in our recent past.

Because SOMEONE has to pay for the R&D. The US is basically subsidizing global pharma research. Sure, we can price fix pharma costs, but then we have to raise taxes to massively increase govt funded drug research (which actually might not be a bad thing for R&D to be centrally planned).

As for the other stuff, like the milk tariffs....Trump seems to be ignoring the massive subsidies given to US farming, and countries usually impose tariffs to level the playing field when govt subsidies are involved.

Well, it is pretty sorely lacking in one particular thing...
