Is the cost of living their so high as to warrant that type of pay? Are they paying $10.00 per gallon for milk?

All of this will collapse. It's a ticking bomb, and it's only a matter of time before it goes off.

This is like the fallacy of health care. It's simply too expensive for everyone in this country to be insured. I don't give a damn who is in charge of it. I don't care how much everyone "needs" it. The fact of the matter is you have a product and service that costs too much for 100% of the people to have. And forget comparing us to other countries. Australia has 26 million people. Denmark has 5-1/2 million. For God's sake New York City alone has over 8-1/2 million. We have over 320,000,000 (read 320 MILLION) in the United States. It will bankrupt this nation to insure everyone. And it is impossible to make it cheap enough so it won't.

 The fact is health care, by it's very nature will prevent everyone from having it. The cost of equipment and hospitals. The cost of educating doctors and surgeons. The cost of medication is ALL adding up to a bill not everyone can afford to pay. AND NEVER WILL BE ABLE TO. That is the reality of this situation. You can sit here and blame, and play politics all you want. This is an unsolvable problem, and will remain such. It isn't what anyone wants. It's the reality of what happens when you have a high population of people who cannot afford to take care of themselves. And the more time that passes, the worse this will all get. So get used to it.

Yesterday I watched the victory laps being run by Pelosi and her props following the cancellation of the vote on the healthcare payment bill.  She pointed out that doctors, hospitals, health product suppliers, healthcare workers, and many others were against this Bill.  A wise person asks why.  Obama started us down the road to a single payer system.  It slipped out twice , that I heard, during the debate that "people like Medicare, and we need to put EVERYBODY on Medicare.". Single payer.  Government pays.  Everybody spends healthcare dollars with no clue the true cost or impact on their livelihood.

We need free market health insurance that is insurance rather than a membership to treatment, personally owned and funded health savings accounts that can build with no limits and become a part of your estate if any remains, and whether paid through insurance, savings or it of pocket, the patient pays the bills and is reimbursed for covered expenses.

Let us all know what it costs, and then we will shop and spend like we do for our other purchases.
If I appear taller than other men it is because I am standing on the shoulders of others.

You pay for Medicare your whole working life. Then you pay for it every month after you start receiving it. Then you have to purchase a commercial supplement, in order to pay for the remaining 20% Medicare doesn't cover. You pay for it. It isn't free. If they put everyone on it Medicare would collapse faster than Obama Care is. There is no solution to this. Everyone cannot possibly be covered. Even Bill Clinton said that. There are 320 MILLION people in this country to insure. They all cannot be covered because it would bankrupt the nation.
