Asunto: Re:Both times Reagan did it (as governor of California and as president of the US) it worked just fine.
Iamon lyme: No. When Raygun started off dropping taxes the US debt started rising. Nice cuts for the rich, but no way for the economy to absorb it, this was left untreated for decades.

"There would undoubtedly be less evasion and fraud under a fair tax system, because fewer people would feel the need to protect themselves."

LMAO.... LMAO .....

"I've already told you how many politicians have wanted government to take over the healthcare industry. That's why they won't allow tort reform, because they want the government to be in control of it."

No, that's paranoid. Our Gov just tells our NHS trusts that they have standards to live upto, and that they are accountable if those standards are not met. The hospitals pretty much are run by themselves or the local NHS trust.

"Tort reform would put a cap on awards, and bring them more in line with reality."

Who profits from the current tort laws.... lawyers, insurance firms and the middle men. Each wanting to take their piece of any payouts. One gets a million.. the other has to get 1.5 million, because it has to be bigger or better.

"Where does the UK get it's money? Does it earn it engaging in private enterprise or from taxation?"

........ ..... both.

"We could have delt with the problem of over inflated prices by dealing with the cause. But now we will have to deal with less accessibility and poorer health coverage."

You have been for years already.

""[ Seemingly common sense principles and morals have no part of modern 'merchant' banking. ]

Small problem with one bank in particular failing. It'd caused a domino effect in the rest of the industry.... With the amount of lending done interbank.

" Lying is a moral issue, not an efficiency issue."

Really... It can cause a great deal of inefficiency in the business world. Especially if you end up with a deal worth far less because of the lying. Or, like in the case of the Madoff investors.... screwed.

(V): "who's interests are affected if tort reform is made?"

Politicians interested in seeing healthcare nationalized would have been negatively affected by tort reform. Their argument was based on some made up ethereal morality that says everyone has a right to healthcare. The way it will work now is if you don't get health care a fine can be levied against you. So apparently this "right" to healthcare will be mandatory. But if the problems with healthcare were actually fixed, they would have had no reason to say it needed fixing... this is why some politicians have always opposed tort reform. Their eyes were on the prize of gaining control of that industry.

The average citizen on the other hand would have been positively affected, because competition would cause prices to fall after the need to insure against exorbitant claims is no longer a concern. Availability has never been an issue, but it probably soon will be.

I say "would have been" because now that government controled healthcare has been made law, the point is moot. We could have delt with the problem of over inflated prices by dealing with the cause. But now we will have to deal with less accessibility and poorer health coverage. And on top of that, health insurance probably won't cost any less than it did before. So what exactly have we gained? We've taken a relatively small problem and made it much worse.

[ That is just one of the factors, an easy one to use to distract you from the rest of the ways health care providers and others in the health care business inflate prices. ]

That's the sort of jibberish politicians use to confuse people. If prices are inflated it's because doctors and hospitals need to cover their costs, and those costs include lawsuits demanding inflated damages. Inflated damage awards, inflated prices. Tort reform would put a cap on awards, and bring them more in line with reality.


"it's the fault of lawmakers who have steadfastly refused to fix this problem."

[ Why... who's interests are affected if tort reform is made? ]

Who do you think! I've already told you how many politicians have wanted government to take over the healthcare industry. That's why they won't allow tort reform, because they want the government to be in control of it. It's not about prices or availability with them, it's about control.

Banks and other types of businesses have failed due to stupidity before, and fraud has always existed. Why do you think people are aways being cautioned to be careful in their business dealings?

Apples and oranges. There would undoubtedly be less evasion and fraud under a fair tax system, because fewer people would feel the need to protect themselves. So how do you feel about moral equality? In other words, the government stops stealing and the citizen pays his taxes... and then we can all stop worrying about it and frolic with the unicorns, or whatever else floats our boats.

[ Right..... lol... ... ... No. In theory, yes... in reality... it depends. If the store knows it can charge more due to the likes of position... it will. Now adays loss leaders are more used. ]


Loss leaders can spice up the deal, but I think most people consider what the total cost of buying groceries will come to. It's all driven by competition, which btw is something governments don't have to contend with... they don't spend their own money, they spend yours.

Competition forces businesses to offer better deals than someone else, and what better way to drum up business than to charge less for the same thing? The higher volume comes into play when more people choose to buy from you instead of someone else. A lower profit per item can add up to the point where you end up with more overall profit than if you were to charge more per item. I'm not sure what you mean by "In theory, yes"... it's done all the time, and has been going on for a long time. Some people weren't happy about losing mom and pop stores to the larger chains, but so what? I don't know anyone who intentionally pays more for the same product they could get for a lot less somewhere else. Do you know anyone like that?

That wasn't my point though, I assumed it was a given how that works. My point was that anyone who understands how lowering a profit per item can translate into more overall profit in a business should also be able to understand how lowering taxes can have the effect of generating more taxable income.

You are proving my point. The key statement in your reply was "The UK contracted out to a private company..."

Most private companies aren't so gullible when contracting out to other companies, and will take great pains to insure they won't get screwed. If they didn't they wouldn't be able to stay in business very long. On the other hand, a governing body such as the UK can afford to make mistakes with money collected from taxes. It's the same over here... our beloved president can make bone headed business decisions without suffering any long term consequences for himself or his beloved political party.

The people are already empowered, but maybe many of them don't know that. Real reform hasn't happened for a few reasons... lack of awareness of the problem, push back from legislators who would rather take over health care for themselves to control, and not enough people who know they are already empowered to pressure reluctant lawmakers. What I meant by "empower the politicians" is by putting pressure on the reluctant ones and encourage those who have been trying to get tort reform off the ground and passed into law. In spite of this being the most practical way to lower costs and increase availability, it never gets enough traction in either house of representatives to come to a vote... there are too many who either don't understand the need for it, or want there to be problems with healthcare so they will have an excuse to step in and take over.

And like it or not access to healthcare is not a God given right, even though we are constantly being led to believe that it is. Do you believe access to healthcare is a God given right?

It's not the lawyers who are at fault, it's the fault of lawmakers who have steadfastly refused to fix this problem. Instead, they want to take control of healthcare and completely change how it is payed for and administered. This is what they have wanted to do for a long time, so it's no wonder why they have refused to fix any of the real problems that drive health care costs up.

(V): There is only one circumstance I can see that could turn things around in the US, and do it relatively fast... like within 10 years. But I also know it's a pipe dream and won't happen.

In order to correct (just one of) the problems we are creating for ourselves, half of the population of this country would need to change its mind about taxation, and insist on limiting government according to the constitution. Some people think the constitution is outdated, but that's nonsense. In order for it to no longer be relevant people would have had to become fundamentally different, and last time I checked people have not evolved into some other species. They still need the same things they've always needed, and still do things in the same way.The only thing that has changed in over 200 years is technology... people are still fundamentally the same.

So here are a few suggestions for the powers that be to ignore: Empower the politicians (all of them) to reject government funded health care, and institute tort reform to correct the REAL problems with health care. Defund unnecessary government programs (to reduce spending) and stop discouraging businesses from growing and hiring new people.

If government can defer its greed for a few years and stop interfering with our lives and businesses, reduce the tax burdon instead of increasing it, then government coffers would beginning filling up again. Increasing a tax burdon insures there will be fewer sources to tax, but reducing tax burdon means more sources spring up for the government to tax. Grocery stores understand how low price / high volume will net greater profits than simply charging as much as they can get away with. Less is more, but many of the geniuses in Washington can't seem to grasp this simple concept. Taxing less encourages growth, and growth means more taxable income. How hard can this be for anyone to understand?

I remember when there were so many jobs to chose from it was an employees market, and businesses were bending over backwards trying to entice people to work for them... we won't see that happening again anytime soon.

That might make some sense if we were borrowing to pay down the debt, but as you say they are doing it so they will have more to spend. The powers that be don't seem concerned about paying off any of that debt right now.

I tried something like that a long time ago. I borrowed against my next allowance, but then got less allowance on my next 'payday'. I didn't like that at all, but I was only eight or nine years old at the time.

(V): They clearly show that using a shotgun isn't "easy" as Biden suggest. He's an idiot.

(V): the video demonstrates they are not easy to use. If you know how to use one yes. Biden is still an idiot.

Artful Dodger: A double barrelled one... scare the poop out of most as they do tend to cut you to pieces if hit by one. More effective than a pistol for home defence, less need to be 'accurate'.

(V): [ Does one have the ability to watch old UK TV shows such as "Yes Minister" or "Yes Prime Minister"?? ]

Probably, if I had cable or satellite, but I don't watch much television so any UK programing I get is whatever is shown on the Public Broadcasting System (PBS).

Didn't work for me either, so I copied and pasted the title... World's Biggest Fart - The Hippo ...into the youtube search engine and it took me to the video.

Iamon lyme: I like what the daily show said about the recent deadline... everyone was on holiday.

"a charge of racism is leveled by someone wielding power and influence to attack a police officer, who did nothing wrong. No politician in his right mind would try pulling a stunt like this."

Don't know the case. Usually politicians don't make public statements like that unless they have some idea.

... Then again..... ..... No, usually that's when they skip around the subject. UK politics is a case of reading between the lines.

And slagging each other off, blaming each other, part histories...

.... .... Does one have the ability to watch old UK TV shows such as "Yes Minister" or "Yes Prime Minister"??
