kbot, I am a retired RN and my sister is the VP of Revenue for a pretty good size healthcare system out here in the Puget Sound area.:D Her healthcare system is NOT operating at a loss, even with Medicare restrictions. And "regular" Medicare requires no pre-auth, only if the patient is "locked into...

Max Baucus, the Republican in Dem clothing. :D Dr. Berwick cannot "ration" care for Medicare and Medicaid patients because benefits in both programs are spelled out succinctly.

Oh, I don't listen to Snoory -- ever. I was referring to staying up "late" some nights posting. I'm a weekend "Somewhere in Time" girl and do the Snoopy dance when Art is LIVE from the Philippines. :) I can appreciate your sentiment. George is OK at best, and Ian, well it just depends. I like liste...

Thanks Joanie and SETIS. As much as I try to stay awake all night to listen-in - I just can't - and function at work the same day. Does anyone have any suggestions for downloading any of the old broadcasts. Unfortunately, I have (wait for it...........) dial-up (and AOL!!!) probably the two worst th...

Not being up to speed with the folks here, but, has anyone read The Creature From Jekyll Island? You can get the book from just about anywhere - Amazon, Borders, etc...... Explains about how the Federal Reserve got its start, what it's about and how we've been in a mess ever since its creation. When...

Wow, what a subject....... Just getting to head into work myself and because I work in a hospital, I get to see a fair number of unemployed people. Up here in the northeast, we've lost a lot of manufacturing jobs and have been trying to transition into high tech and mostly service (read that "low pa...

Love listening to C2C, mostly Art's shows, especially the older shows. Being on the east coast I do...
