  •  Stossel is a cold, bureacratized machine... (1+ / 0-)

    Stossel's comment, "a cold, bureaucratized machine that does not serve people well" describes my insurance company well.  

    The last thing you want to do when you are sick is to spend hours on the phone trying to get a reimbursement from an insurance company, or find out if something is covered.  Trust me, I've done this.  

    Equating "health care shopping" with any other kind of purchasing decision is false; no one decides to get sick and go through endless trips to the doctor, sitting in waiting rooms, undergoing uncomfortable procedures.

    All you want to do when you are sick is get treatment, rest up, and hope that you get well.  That's worrisome enough, but to have to spend a sleepless night or two worrying about how you're going to pay for it, well, that doesn't make any sense to me at all.

    Interesting how when you go to Canada, or Europe, the average person looks healthier than the average American.  

    The poster is right when he describes Stossel as a shill for his wealthy employers.  That's the real problem with TV celebrity "reporters," they are much more interested in what keeps their own taxes low and their salaries high.  Why do these out of touch idiots get such a loud megaphone?
