    I have no issue with the tax credit cut. Don't like the incentives part.

I place the blame on nutritional empty and and dead GMO foods, pesticides and hormones, processed foods with neurotoxic excitogens, neurotoxic artificial sweeteners, statin drugs (toxic toxic toxic worthless) and pharmaceuticals in general, and many others. All the food is severely mineral deficient because the farmland is universally depleted and dead. Then, there is pollution, Chemtrails, fluoridated and chlorinated water, pasteurized dairy (i.e. dead, killed, nutritionally garbage). Every American is severely mineral deficient. Without the trace minerals, lifespan is shortened and rampant disease is a guarantee. I do not exaggerate. We are truly screwed. Ponce was right: many will die.

    Non profit which is rare now is best, any venture that has stockholders, in many ways are evil. because internal prices will have to go up. All to supply the stockholders with a dividend.

    Today health is a cash cow, ever notice how most big hospitals are getting bigger? One answer is more people that they serve.

    Our medical system is over priced by far, past the insanity levels, beyond what local needs. Slap high prices on everything, take part of that for profits for the stockholders. Buy out all that are computation with their system.

    I could go on and on.

    Our drug company's are a fine example..they say research cost sets the price.

    Well yes but also in the long run pure greed to the point that they will bury any compilation for generic analogs, if not the exact formulation.

    the cause of the problem is insurance or ponzi. So long as insurance is allowed the costs will always be astronomical.
