32. So... much.... waste...
"unnecessary managers, claims deniers, fault finders, pre-existing condition detectives, doctor spies, advertising managers"

True, when your business is about reducing risk you have to employ a LOT of people and spend a LOT of money to determine WHO and WHAT is covered. That's where a veritable shitload of money goes in America's health care system.

That's why single-payer would be so much cheaper and efficient: we (the nation and its citizens) wouldn't be wasting all those billions of dollars since EVERYBODY is covered, and ALL medically necessary procedures (as determined by YOUR OWN DOCTORS) are covered. Savings will be realized from NOT having that black hole sucking money away from health care, NOT putting money into lobbyists' pockets, AND also because preventive, PROactive care for all will turn into less catastrophic, REactive care overall.

But that's just my 2 cents. B-)
