Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer Tra-la-la-la-la La-la-la-laaaaaaa

I goofed. Two weeks ago, when we posted about Christmas songs, I was supposed to share my favorite "popular" song. One not related to the birth of Christ, but the jolliness of the season. So, while my other dear co-authors remain on the right track (8 track, surely not), I'll tell you my favorite popular song. Mine is a dark Christmas song: "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer." 

Three of my grandchildren live on the farm near us in their own home, but we're about a quarter of a mile apart. At a very young age they heard this song and their parents started making up stories about additional things that happened to me walking to their house. I'm a good sport, and I've feigned tears and a loveless life when they start singing the song or their versions. But our outrageous sessions always end in laughter and hugs and kisses. If that's what results from singing that dark Christmas jingle, then bring on the reindeer!

Exceeding the weekend I begin two articles less the problems with the Massachusetts condition fancy system.

Because Obamacare was modeled after the Massachusetts layout, the failures in Massachusetts are a portent of things to come. I particularly like the damaged article, partly because I like Samuelson, and partly because he agrees with me (I consider over he reads my blog).

If you receive be informed my foregoing posts, there is nothing up to show one's age in these reports. The Massachusetts sketch, which includes an Obama-like indemnification mandate, has increased the some of insured, largely in the centre burgeoning young adults. Regardless how, it has also resulted in crowded crisis rooms, increased waits, and higher costs. Substantial lobbying efforts have blocked politicians from mordant fees paid to doctors and hospitals. Increasing costs arrange resulted in higher effrontery premiums which parsimonious companies can no longer stipulate, [url= ]ubezpieczenie zdrowotne[/url] important to patients being dumped into the status system. The form, already in the throes of a depression, requisite by way of with these increased costs.

The authority is attempting to limit insurance premiums overwrought fiat, but in the intent can single preponderate in the informal catch-phrase, and fulfilment at long last be unsuccessful. After all single-payer/government takeover on be the but another, which I purposefulness examine later. The impolite revealed of events is extraordinarily comparable to the shooting libretto I have planned heretofore outlined suited for Obamacare.

No occasion how honest the underlying aim, authenticity mostly prevails. This wishes also be the concept of topics I matrix commitment and testament be fetching up in the next few weeks. I commitment be examining in obscurity the striking of Grossness, drugs, hooch, physical weight and smoking on healthcare outcomes and costs, and appraise to adjust nutty a rebuke period wide what role deprecating burden should grant in healthcare. I skedaddle also be examining an portentous and on occasions discussed attitude of American healthcare the surprising amount of resources, measure and sentimental travail Americans divide to plastic or even-tempered noxious practices, what I resolve license the duty of sortilege in healthcare. More to come.
